Murdock wafi asked: "Do you think a com -pensation law would affect older and The Coal commission finished hearing the evidence of the coal miners nml oficrutors in the prairie countr.y on Saturday. Cienerul Manngv^r Naismith of the (ik\t company, was a wititess again today, nnd his siateinonis are worliiy uf attention of all coal consumers and that is that it is imiwrativc that lieopio should purchase their coal in the HiiiiMner as the mines were a I -ways fully taxed in the winter. Jn reply to a question by Coitunie -sicner Slockett he sai vays very careful. Mr. Murdoch Rtati^^t his wages during the winter monibs did not average $15 a fortnight. Andrew Wilson, a Scctchman of 24 years' experience, earns 93 a day at the .Thi.stlo mine at Wood|iecker. Ho there is no market for it. l^iey gave iNOin;> away to local nmnufucturers in I.,ethl)ridge. On the run of the mino lias's thoy would have to pay for a groat pr.rtion of slack, and fire.clay. Mr. Naismith pointorl out that on tho screened conl basis a Ion was 3,000 iiounds, while on' run of mine it was 2.210 pounds. History, ho said, had proved that ventilation of the mino. It was always good when the inspector came around and ho suggested that the inspector should not notify the operator when: ha intended to visit a mine In that way he would be able to discover the actual conditions at the m nes. I^ic men were afraid to report to the inspcctoc for fear the o|icrator wouM hear f.l it and, dis  charge them. Wilson liclievcd a miner should bo paid for whatever he loads un a cart, and as far as he is concerned be never loads an.ything hut the best of coal. ^ Joe Casari, SO yearsi a miner, was provcfl coal mining to lie one of ibo not .satisfied tvlth conditions at the. heiillhie.S't cla.sses of lalior. The death Western Canada Conl company'smine rate among coal miners was low. The.|ftt 'I'ubar.' He sa.vs the miino is |K�or-~'  ^y ventilated and that a carload of powder js, frequently left in the mine, tliough it is taken out before the in- wsints a legal eight hour day and u I'""''c marketable coal was scciiiv-d on compensation. He complained of the i screenwl coal system than itiii of temiw-i-ii'luiv iii the mine heiv is fair. (iO tc.or cent in.orr> ' -whero' no-other men woi-c asked to go and where the n.of and the ventilation were bad. The roof a few days after fc^ in and th'is entry has since been closed up. He wos-not offered work in any other |>art of the mine. He was also cii.schargod from another mino. and no reason was given. lie blanvHl the action ct all {he o|tcra tors towards hinii on account of his active connection with tho union. He believed in the eight hour tlay. tie. had worked ten hours a day in the old country, but ho said in the last two hours the ci.mpany difl not get much work out of him. A man could not work hard for ten hours steadily in a mine. He favored a comfionsation act, it imtdc innstcrs and men careful. Masters nlv ays fur- This ii� a weed which has not as .Vet obtain��l a verj- .extensive hold in the Province of Alberta, but it is hcfle, and as with other weeds, it is when it first appears that the best work' can l>e done towards kmping it under control. The following suggestions have liecn made by the Oe -raitmcnt of Agriculture at I7dmr>fl'  montr.D, nnd ought to l>e helpful to all farmers who happen io have any of this notorious wflodi on the land. In dealing with Caaadn thistle it ouglit t� be i�nnem�>�red that it- is nut an annual and that ordinaiy cultivation will net have the effect on it that it-has on plants such as most of the mustards. It is a (tcrcn-nial and its roots have stored up in Ihem the ncurishment by means uf which it is able to produce i'ts flovcr fctem in the following .year. By the time this is aceomplished and tlic flowers are just lieginning' to or>eit, the nourishment In the roots has l)e Cv>mc pretty well ethaustert and Ihe plant logins to store up another supply of biiildirig material for next year's stem jnd-flower. To do this it rotiuirM'tlie help'of its grccnleaves to convert, the sap into this material ami upon a knowledge of this fact lies the method of ti-eatment. Cutting or even ploughing Caaadn thistles witcn they appear first in the spring or any time Ix-forc the flower ap|>OHi8 is simply a mean* of piopo-gating tficm, because wheiv each stem is cut off one or two inorei will branch out: .and abundance of nourishment remaining in tlicroots tcj enable those two or three bran -ches to produce, both flowers and seeds. 'iHie liost thing to do is to leave the thistles entirely alone in tliu spring, allowing them to grow till ttiey are just! coming into flower then cut them and plow up the land at once and .cultiyato thoroughly, cure Ijcing taken not to allow a single green leaf to appear above the surface if possible. This louves the roots in the position of'being ex-hausted*and unal>le tocujicratc and ihc.v therefore cannot butJ die, or at most make a very, feeble effort to send fcrth a Howcr stem next year. If the patches he closely watched ami this treatment steadfastly carried out foK a year or two, there should net I.e ^'great deal; oi trouble from Canada thistles. This weed has been found . growing put on the prairie where the wind has blown the seed, prolmbly years ago from some neglected corral or patch of thistles near the. railway, track.: When any oi these prairie, patches arc noticed, ev-er.v fanner in his. own defence and even if they, are not. on his own land, should see to it that they are not allowcd^to seed. .It must be romcm-bcred that tho Canada thistle is like the tumble weed-a common enemy- for its s(>cds need not of necessity sprout in tlie same ^id: in which the pac^nt 11 iUC grew, but may t� blown iiy the winds 10 miles away, ami the fanivsr mnj: very often be protecting himself as well as his neighbors by dcstroy'ng an odd bunch of Canada thistle out tn the prairie. It is in the lieginning of things thot a little work count.s and it williftay ev�r.v farmer to rememl>cr this when ho sees a iiatch of Canada thistle eilh-rr t.n bis own. land or odt on the prairie.
