Western Can i adas surplus wheat is moved with little delay and practically no That this redounds tothe benefit of the Western Canadian farmers there 1 Is no gainsaying and wealth is flow log into their pockets and into the country as a Considering Western Canadas posi tion in this war in comparison with tke position of almost any other coun we cannot see that we have any thing to complain We should rather be thankful that we are In the enviable position that we baby on this nmttor and inetend of crying tor Pennsylvania they shoulil M thankful they nre living close enough to Alberta to IR able to get n supply of our lump After using It they will sure ly have to do in they will find that they will not freeze patron Icing home The somewhat outrageous opinion some people have ixbout Alberta coal Isnt held only in In Ot where they should know bet they think that because our coui Is claesed as soft as differentiated from that It must be so in ferior that slow death by freezing Is sure to be the fate of tho prairlo dwellers next For witness what the Ottawa usually woll has to say A local coal dealer says Hint hun dreds of people in Ottawa are living n n fools paradise when they go into tlu1 coal dealers office and sign their requisition cards for coal and then go away feeling that they will bo able to get coal when they want It is not clear why the people who are prepared to order their winters coal now cannot get and thus to some extent relieve the strain on transpor tationlater on Inthe The Oatia fuel administration has miblloly urged the desirability ot ordering next winteris supply as early as pos sible the fuel controllers position is not likely to be an enviable next winter In unless he can find some noli to induce people to order thoir coal In lhe summer but to get a big proportion of it delivered The Canadian fuel responsibilities are intensified this the fact that United States coal Western Canada scorn likely to be reduced An understand ing has been arrived at between the United administration and the private owners of coal mines in Western no anthracite coal would be shipped from United States mines to Canadian points west of The people in the prairie provinces nre going to compelled to or through next winter with the lignites and soft coal of Canadian Who ever inspired this hazardous under exposing the people of West ern Canada to serious hardships for of coal in the long months Vhen the temperature falls far below the responsibility for what may hap pen will almost be surely placed upon the Dominion fuel It is no light responsibility to be laboring to experiment on tho people of a frigid zone with fuel of an inferior Ordinary furnaces are suitable for soft coal as it is mined in Western Canada nor is the coal itself suitable for storing in an ordinary coal bin lengthy per When it is exposed to the a large percentage of moisture is evap orated from the stuff called coal in the it crumbles to It is not to understand why the PASSING WINNIPEG SHOULDNT WORRY ALBERTA COAL IS Winnipeg coal consumers are taking very ungenerous attitude towards Alberta It is due to prejudice of and to ignorance of the value of Albertas subbituminous but their Attitude is likely to do a great deal of harm Some time ago the Government ordered that the WimUpeggera must use at least half Alberta coal during the coming and warned them that it might be impossible to supply any anthracite whatever from the American Since then there have 1een many murmurs from the Mani tfOba and the latest is the re solution of the city council that Win nipeg must have Pennsylvania an thracite or the people will freeze next Of we are all ready to ad jntt that it does get chilly in Winni peg but we would take our chances pf Jiving through it if we were as gured of a sufficient supply of coal frqm the Edmonton and prumheller The trouble with be Winnipeg people is without knowing the they have an en tirely wrong conception of the quality of Alberta To them it te soft aud they brow up their hands horror wheu aid they must turn it As u matter of faxst there are millions of people im I he prairies who see hardcoal from years ojid to the other ami they man age to exist through winters almost severe as Winnipeg can should juit playing the people Wfestern agaiMt this and refusing to srder though this is the timewhen If must1 toe and if the mines and transpor tation facilities are to supply the whole of the West There may be unexplained reasons why the i people west of Winnipeg should have been placed at the mercy of the mine The thing seemed to be brewing several ago when a few private mine owners from Western Canada tried to get the support of Ontario for government action to debar the entry of United States coal into the prairie They got no and apparently no encouragement from the Dominion Government or fuel administra tloni Butthey seem to have succeed ed fcy making a direct arrangement with the United States fuel The responsibility ia on the Dominion and primarily on A Magrath ae fuel controll to see that the element of risk Whatever else be can be no Jugglingwith the winters fuel sup The temperature is not suitable for such Next to securing sufficient miners to keep the mines working to full it is evident that the great est necessity on the part of the coal operators of this province is to com mence a campaign of education of the people of Winnipeg and the rest of Manitoba for the purpose of disillu sioning them and removing from their minds which exists as to Alberta coal Just because it hop pens to be generally termed as soft If Winnipeg people were to be told that between natural gas at 35 cents per thousand and coal at J6 per ton there was very little difference In the cost of beating an ordinary they might change their Bat certainly something should be done to remove the misconception which exists In their The only apprehension need be as to whether Alberta can mine enough to go and
