Conditions were changing so rapidly, they said, and so many factors were continually entering the problem that the United States was faced bv new issues'almost daily. ; Frc-m the frequent exchanges be-i iwccii the entente governments and !'Washington it is undrstood Great Bri-itain and France and possibly Italy be-| lieve an efficient army and navy with-| in reach of Siberia and not otherwise I engaged and acting in'conformity with ta general agreement might be better t able to deal with the situation than au. ; international force. resources would bo administered by Alberta men who would .be expert In their profession, and Would l�n nr-tiiinliiti'd, with local conditions On different occasions, said Mr. t'ote. he had urged the appointment of a commit loo of experts lo investisato why their coal market could not be .extend-1 t'd to cover the (hveo prairie provinces butt nothing was done, although tit one ; tinio the Pominlon Government did send a man who, although lie line! not. boon in the mining business for years, had been appointed a mining inspector j for Canada. | Pointing out that the coal operators | of tho province had informed tho com-j of national'defence at Calgary that they could produce more coal this '� year with the same labor, ho sulci that \ they were all agreed if tho mines were J worked steadily throughout the year they would he producing S.000,000 tons instead of 4.S00.000 as in 1917. Why was it, ho asked, that the mines were only worked spasmodically? Because tho Dominion government did not appoint n railway operator on the railway board in order that cars would bo distributed at tho mines. That was the principal reason, and it arose from the fact that the Dpniin-i ion Government had not experituent-j eel with coal to realize its possibilities, 1 for instance In the direction ot lnann-j fai'lttring briquettes and extracting the | by-products. That was the reason why j he thought the provincial government 1 should have the natural resources, in order that they might be ablo to produce more. In the western provinces they had all the non-metallic minerals. They had fuel for nil in Alberta, and out of the fuel could bo extracted a fertilizer that would ho before long as Important as was the coal industry today. In regard to the nianufaoture of britpiet-les Mr. Cote said that if they had a cheap binder the coal operators could put on the market an article that could compete in price and finality with tho anthracite of Pennsylvania. As one of tho natural resources thai tho Dominion government, was incompetent in handling, he alluded to the new regulation in regard to fishing in Lesser Slave Lake that the season should begin on July lath, and close during the winter. The effect of that would be that the settlers would bo engaged in haying and attending to [ their crops, and would not lie in a posi-i tion to go fishing. Then next sum-' mer the fish will be put in cars, and ; shipped to Chicago, and other eastern markets, and the people of Alberta next winter would have to import t. : from the coast. Concluding Mr. Cote said that the statistics published for the year It'Id. showed that the average number of days' work per month in the domestic coalfields of Alberta was 13.K where- ; as it should have been The pay ; roll at present was $ 10.000.(Kit) per year , whereas if they had the market they . should have a payroll that would be from IS to IS millions per year so that the province was losing from S to 'J million dollars that should he in circulation.

But he feared ! too many of thorn were obsessed with i the.'r $2.21 wheat, and their so-much-a-I day for work in the munition factor-, ies. They were- too busy making : money, but. he hoped all the boys | .would not get the impression of an of-! fleer who had returned, "We sent you ; boys to fight; fight 1/ out." I Care For Alberta Men j There w;rs only one problem declared the member, and that was the reinstatement of the soldier who h. .. ....en a civilian in civil life. To accomplish tin's it was necessary that their thoni-hts should be turned to social, and iv'otionih; reconstruction, and Hint led to tiie iiuesliou of employment. Why. he asked, had not. the Dominion goviTiiiiU'ti! established tailor bureaus throughout, the country? That was one of the first, essentials that should have been attended to. Why had they ashed that demobilization be slowed down? I'.eciinse they were not preparing themselves for the situation. Why should Alberta men he. left, in "tie east? Why could not Alberta take care of its own men?" Premier Made Offer Premier Stewart said that he had niude that offer to the Dominion government. "I'm very glatl to hear thai." replied I.owery. Continuing he asked. "Was land sotUemenl t..o. only thing they could offer the men? What about those who did not want to go on land, and who were not adapted for the life'.'" They should turn their attention to the creation of now industries, formulate a plan, and bring It. be-fnre the Federal authorities. What they want for the development �tf Industries was labor, arid cheap power. Then I hoy would get the industries. . Organize the Man Power Major Lowery urged the orgniiiza-tion of the man-power of the whole, country so that every man would be put. in bis proper place.
