About 500 millers, Ool. White said, were on strike, and there was danger of -thsii- nttoanrrting to prevent the owners from working the fans ond pumps, and tliercby preventing the working of tho mines, which were lieiiig operated b.y nonunion men. Tho mounted police, re. inforccd by mem!)ers of the force from other parts, were on hand to prevent tlie destruction of property and protect the persons of the men who were at wdi'k. The police in that region are up to the ways of miners, and anticipate they may alteni]>t ^^causc damage or intimi-doto the'^'orkers by the- use of bombs or dynamite.

The jji-es-nce of such local cent res which take their sujipl.v on a day-lo-doy Vasis on account of tIn;Ir easy iiroximity shows that such plnci.'s may suffer more ficurely from an intcrniptlon of supply than larfi-e centres to which several sources of fuel siipjily may he contributors. There are other mines on the Crow's Xest Railway both east and west of Lcthbridgo but a new accession of demand can HCidoin be immediately met, owing to previous orders aivd coiitriicts and the impossibility of fiuick itfcrease of supply of both i;onl and cars.
