The 1917 production of bituminous and lignites in Alberta amount to approximately 4.700,000 tons, and at this the mines wore working on an average ot only thirteen days per month. The coal opeiators ot tho entire Province of Albwta at a meeting held at Calgary recently under the auspices of W. H..

Any one of these three methods would be sufficient to submit,the matt.er_to a vote ot the people. Another difficulty was that dach board had to appoint certain members to the bo>pltal board before the scheme � cduld'jpa'framed up. A provision In therneW;aet'5would make it iraposslbla foriany-Binfle,9Dun-cll to block the scheme b*'"i?!'W!>e to appoint Its members to the bbard.

A Critlclann Dr, Stanley reminded the house of the scheme put fqrwatd by tbe opposition In the last: leglalatura for the utilization of the wM land-tax to provide a plan ot hospitals in the province, and said that the only real alteration In the present ;blll waa in the way of making the botftjdarlefl of the municipal hospital more' elastic. He complained that there was uo announcement regarding furtber financial assistance fron^ tl>e'gbvernmcnt nor In regard to any ayat^ut 'or the provision of hospitals In outlylpg districts so that poop;^ jsotjld get attended to at a reasonable oost.
