The existence of the Labor disputes net, pas.sed at the last session of the Dominion Parliament, had a great deal to do with the anxiety of the employers and the employees toreach a settlement. Howexer. the Herald ik of tho opinion that the announcement of Hon.

The Sir Will'inni Miilock mado some very sensible suggestions to the miners and oix'rators, in his nddi-ess at tlio close of the confei'ence which brought about peace. His advice to the operators that Ihe.v should not regulate tho output of the nuinos bj' ilie number of cars they could get, liut on the other hand, should con-tiinio at work, even if there was a car shortase and store tho coal so that ' the men would have steady worl; and the possibility of a fuel famine avoided, will be endorsed bj; 1 be public. The operators as well as the men, .should realize that the coal iiuiies must ser' e the people and in order to carry out that idea they jiiiist uJways have a' supply of this great fuel on hand. The car shortage cry has been used as an "excuse in nany instances but there is no reason why work in the mines should case on that account. In fact there )s a necessity at this very- moment tor the mines to be operating at full strength in order that coal may be turned out so as to meet tho demands of tha people when plenty of cars ar� to be secured. Toronto cab drivers have every ronfidonco in Judge Winchester as an arbitrator of differences with their emplo.vers, which is much better than putting their confidence in Wiiwihostor rifles.

The railroads ought to be .able to calcel-te the nuii^bor of cars required' to h ndle the- output of the mines If t>:ey are not tho Railway Conx-nilFsin should step in and solve tho pro lem for them. Then the railways should be compelled to supply all the cars necessary and if they failed to do so a heavy penalty ought to be imposed. It is time the railroads were made lo realize that the people were boss of affairs in this country. 'mm 7K|...... The trouble with the mine opera -tors, as veil ns the heads of other of our great industrial concerns, is that they fail to consider the interests oi tlu'ir men from the humane Ntniidpoint. Instead Ihc.y look at everything irom the standpoint of the almighty dollar. Would it not lio worth while experimenting in a new way with the toilers? Why nol give them a holiday, as Sir William Mu-lock says and not force them to lay off for a day every w�ek or so. That makes the men dissatisfied. On the iother hand if they wore olTored a Avcek's vacation and treated like tho men who work^ in stores and oftlccs, would they not be better satisfied with conditions?

Me handles the machinery he works with The history of nations and cities is writlon in tho lives of their citizens. The death of William Stafford removes one who.se life has. been close ly associated \yith the history of Lelhbridge. Twenly-fivc years ago, he came here as the first superintendent of mines, and has seen under his own, supervision and that of others, the little shaft in the coulee develop into the groat mines operated by the Alberta Railway and Irrigation Company to-day, with the operation which the history of Leth-bridge has been so closely allied. Al-wa.vs wel|l and favorably known, the esteem in which he was hold was but feebly attested by the large crowds that attended the obsequies to pay their last tribute of respect. A MacLeod's efforts to a'Ctain great ncss^are fJantic in the extreme. te\rf weeks ago, the Advance got the idea that MacLeod would arise over the ashes of Lethbridge's hopes of the high fcvel bridge and tho divisional point. liut tho(,C.P.R. ofHcials refused to supply the foundation of their hopes,, although some still cling to thom, tho wish being father to tho hope within. Sol having Lethbridge's blostod hopes upon which to build up greatness, the town is trying to secure a foundation on their own stone-heap, tho cairn under which lie buried ancient dreams of greatness. The report goes Out that MacLeod;^ assessment is double of last year. The only wonder is that it is not triple. One man bought lots from the town lor $100 tt few months ago. To-day tliey are asscs.sod for $330. He offers to sell them, back to the town for $200. Another property purchos-ed for $2.50 and listed with real estate men at S325 is assessed nt $900 �This is surely municipal high finance.
