The shell .undoubtedly was fired by one of the forts on McNab's Islaud. AS the giilnll government sicamer Brunt was Iiroceedinp dcivn ibc lnirhoi1, .she was noticed bv the haiiery which signalled her lo report. ihe Urant was only [replacing buoys, and was not techni- cally out cf ihe harbor, her captain did I not think It necessary to report. The battery then fired two shots at her. It is belicvnd that one of ihe ahcts glanced from the water inio the air, but the mystery is how it reached so far north as No one hurt.

Calgary, Alia, March --Tlie miners untl operators ;ire iJi closed coiirereiiL-e, and 'have absolute- ly refused lo sive any ih ing Lo Lhe press. TIio [ight is silent so far as "z. the public ia concerned, but iliac the men are every [oot, of ihe way loivard nev.' goes vVilhojjt saying. If our years airc '.his Ihey were locked in Lhe same strug- Rle, bin at that time nmcii more pub- lic interest was attached ID iht; con- rcrciice, for it-was no secret then that tlie miners were ail ready Ln lay down tlieir tools on April 1 It their terms i wore not met. It is thought this year, how ever, that an amicable arrangc- j men! will be arrived at. which bo 'submitted Lo the various miners' lo- cals Tor ratification within [be" next fortnight, and work will ccntimie in the mines without. break, and with a new iigreement signed to the period until March 31, 1919. So far as ihe Herald can gather from miners and operators in this part of the field, a strike is a remote pos- sibility. It is l me l hat the miners' re- presentaiives jit the conference in ses- sion ai Calgary are figliting- bard for improvement cf conditions in certain mines, and for a change in Lhe clauses dealing 'n'iLh tbe arbitration of dls- pmes. but that they will go Lhe length of a strike is jiot considered probabie. The miners have not the money to put iip scrap. Strikes In other fields, depressed conditions in District No. JS mines, and uu'nis from the 1911 strike are given as reasons why tho new agreement will be signed without a finish fight. There is mst a possibility, however, that the miners' representatives at tlie conference may try a new tack with the operators. It hay been hinLed that, if they find they can malie no headway wiln (.lie mine own- condiiions, they will m'ake the propos- al to the operators to Sign a Vwarl that is, they will continue tbe present agreeoieni as :t stands.ilurlog the period of tbe war, and thereafter, reserving to themselves, however, ttie riBlit at any time afLer peace is de- clared to demand a new agreement. In this -ivay the miners would avoid tbe disadvantage of signing an agrppinenf during a period of depression.
