About ten teams are wanted at onco tohnul grain from tho Silver Farm to the Columbia F.lovalor, U'thbridgo. 00 Ions u day In a year's time. Three fatal accidents hud occurred at the mine since ho look charge last fall, nnd he claimed failure to obey orders was the cause of each. The ventilation of the mluu was good. I to thought 'the mine inspector visited the mine often enough, but he did [not care if he came around oftonor. In reply to a quest ion hy Commissioner llayson. ho admitted shortage of men miglil bo due to thvi fact that men objected to working in a mine w-hoiv there was too much of a pitch. 'Ihe.v preferred flutter veined mines. Mr. Moore was perfectly satisfied with the present coal mining legislation of |ho Provinces. He wouldlook upon a compensation law us a |s>n-ally upon a particular industry. it won hi make mining, now tho back bone of the country, us burdensnmo as possible. During his long oxper  ionce lie found accidents were duo to negligence of tho men. more espec -iully experienced men. He said that (hey only got about six hours actual work under the elghl hour day bank to bank. He said he was in entire accord with the suggestion that unions should lie incorporated. Ho lound men did not always live up to their agreements and they should be incorporated in order to make them responsible. Ho put in a kindly word for foreigners by saying there were in many rnoos splendid minors. Frank, Alt*., June 5.-The work- ing miners had an effective Innings before the coal coiiiiinlssion to-day. I'hey were licltor able to tell what they wanted and why they wanted II than any of Ihelr follows at Loth -bridge. There wore throo witnesses, nil Scotchmen, employees of the Can-ndlnu-Amerlcan company. Like the miners heard at IxithbrUtge they stood strongly for an eight hour linnk-lo-hnnk law nnd a compensation act. The eight hour Iwnk-lo-bank system is followed in the mines here, but the men want it mude a law so that Ihey will bo sure of it for all time to come. The trio of witnesses had worked under the cotu-liensntlon net In Scotland and they were unanimous In declaring It was highly satisfactory. Invariably the operators kept (he mines in lieller sha|*e. Timber wns provided, the machinery fenced in ami all holes filled up. They took every .precaution lo guard against accident, and as a result the number of accidents was remarkably decreased. Ocnernl Manager Naismith of tha (lalt company hud declared thnt iho passage of a com|tcnsatlon net would necessitate an Increase'In the cost of coal, but David Stone dispntedthls statement and said that the net in Scotland had never added one cent to the cost cf coal. The Frank miners are paid once a month. They say this is a great inconvenience, ossein I ly since the cash system is enforced in the stores. They urged legislation coni|H)lling imymcnt fortnightly. One witness suid that if a train wanted pari of his wages in advance he had to pay five per cent to tho Company. Complaint was offered against the present method of carrying explosives. Tlie lid of the can containing the explosive was not fastened nml il easily felt off and allowed the power to fall, creating a dangerous situation. They thought (he lids should be hinged or locked. The suggestion was tirade that shot firing lie done by special men, not by lite individual miners ns at present. D was also advanced that there should lie a law preventing discriminating by the operators in selecting employee*. The men claim that they do not discriminate against the operators. Pit'sitk'nl Nicol, of the local miners union, while admitting he was not very well informed on the pro  visions of the Dominion Conciliation Acl. was willing to do without it. Ho objects lo a third interfering^ whore his wages were concerned, lib said the mine here wns well eipiip|*ml with nun having I.V) at the present time. Nicol made the charge that ihe initio inspector did not inspect iho mine thoroughly. He says it takes two days to pro|ierly inspect a mine. In connection with compensation 'pel in Scotland, Jus. Turabult said that younger men were given the preference thai was o* day was $11.00. He favored tho run of mine system ami was opposed to boys under eighteen working in a mine except on tho gangways. Nicol fuvored legislation compelling operators to place limber in the most convenient pluces for the men. Having to go to get it he argued decreased his earning capacity. They have an agreement to that effect here, but he wants it enacted into law. Witness slated that in two nnd a half years there hud been seven fatal accidents all due tn 'suffocation through being buried in coal in the chutes. As n remedy he suggested that greater precaution should lie taken in drnwing coal out of I he breasts. School Att��4Mc� tocrcoM* The School Hoard met on Tuesday evening. Tlie mrnvliers present being the chairman, J. II. Fleetwood and Messrs.

Pearson presented a communication from tho Department of lOducation re iho vaeclnatlon of his children. The Hoard, however, said that they could do nothing, more in Ihe iiratlcr. Mr. Pearson complained of the way in which his appearances iMiforo the HoanL.hnd been reported in the morning paper. Tho qfiairmnn said that ho was very sorry to see the report because it was most unfair nml that he wishod tho reporter was present to hear'Mr. Pearson's remarks. Tho Hoard passed a resolution thanking Senator DeVoher and tlie Ooologicul Survey of Canada for live fine geological collection given the school. The matter of purchasing a piano for the school was laid over. The senthfnent of Ihe Hoard was opposed to accepting money raised, hy the oiudents Ui purchase furnishings for tho school. Tlie Hoard would pur -chase a piano if there wns a suit  able place for it. F. II. ttolfson wns appointed to in-s|iect the schools and report ueces  snry repairs.
