Terrific battles for the possession of HIU 44, one of the defences of t Mont Kemmel, have again t>aen taking place. The French at present hold the hiU and the Germans have .been conducting terrltlc assaults for Its recapture, without avail. The Austrian offensive against Uie Italian front is expected soon. Increased activity is noticeable from day to day on this �front. 18 NOW UP TO ALBERTA MINERS. C. A. Magrath, Fuel Conti'oller, has issued an order that all users of coal in the 'West must this year provide not less than half their supply from the soft and sub-bituminous coals of the West. There is to be no more all anthracite coal so long as the war is on. The Herald Is naturally pleaded at this order, for we believe part, at least, of the success of the campaign for Alberta coal for the West can be traced to the agitation carried on through these columns during the winter months. There remains just one thing to be done to make the campaign a ouc- .ccss and that is for our miners to work steadily so that production will equal the output. IWhether this can be accomplished will rest greatly on tho officials of the miners' union. If it is true, as Chas. Peacock, oecre-tarr of the local union told The Herald the other day, that the union officials recognize the need for the groatest possible tonnage in order to bold the" Manitoba market, and if  tliey can prevail upon the rank and file of the miners to avoid needless holidaying, the coal mining industry in this province can be placed on a basis where within a few years it will not need to fear competitlou 'from the Penhsylvanian anthracite , field. The success of the campaign is in the hands of the miners themselves, and we sincerely hope they can be brought to see what it means, not only lor themselves, but for the � general prosperity of the whole of Alberta. lMIV1IGRATIt)N AFTER THE WAR. The whole question of Itnmlgrii-Hon uftor tho war so far as Canada has been discussed time and time again since the war broke out. The Financial post, however, throws a new light on the proljicm In ii recent editorial article In which they quoK! from an address b.v_ T. .K. Srdgwick before tho Iloyal Colonial Institute. Tho Post says: There is more than one opinion as j to the prospects for Caniidiau iiunii-grntlon-especially from the Ignited Kingdom and Kurope-after tho wnr. .\galnst thi' nrgiiments of nntioniil Mliseltledness, world need tor foodstuff", and increased Uibor forces as ! the result of military activitic-.s there \ arc the contention.'' that destroyed i coMimunltios must be rebuilt, that i Kuropean nations wHl restrict omnti-gration and that funds will mn bo , available for development. In view :jf i these circumstances there are a mim- � her r,t interesting phases of tlio .?lt-u.Htion dealt with In a paper by T. , K. Sedgwick, recently read before Ihc , Hoya! Colonial Institute, in whicli he i gives reason why "we (Mrltaln^i must take caro to be belter prepared for peace than we were for war." .Mr. Sedgwick argues that, owing to the cessation of emigration since the ^ outbreak of the and to tho fact i that a large number of the :1S0.000  Belgians who settled In Brltoin will j lake up permanent home.-! there the >, civil population of the United King-; dom will be about halt a million greater than It was before the war. even allowing for the loss of 500,000 of tho men on active service. Further from the labor point of \-lew he contends that, besides a million women, tens of thousands of persons who were either In receipt of poor law relief or were Idle for various reasons have become wage earners and i he lays stress on the fact that tlie introduction of new machinery for munitions and other' purposes, which j win then be available for ordinary � manufacturing, will represent labor saved to the extent of another half million. ! From this line of argument it is i not difficult to arrive at a natural conclusion. Roughly speaking, if all the military forces of Great nritaln are turned free to seek ordinary occupations there will be a surplus of ft million male workers and a million female workers in addition. Mr. Sedgwick puts it thiis: ".�\s the wealth of a nation must always be derived from labor and the land, and the land can yield nothing without labor, Ml-GR.\TIO.V IS KSSB.NTIAL TO THE FUTURE OP THE E.MPIRE." �'.Migration." so far as Great Britain is concerned will mean, firstly, Canada. For a few years at least the movement will be to the Dominlo.c; which Is in the best position to produce foodstuffs and that country will bo Canada with its great areas of fertile grain lands and its comparative accessibility .as contrasted with South Africa, Australia or India. Certain it is, Canada's position in the Empire after the war will be stroiiger than ever before, and with a flood of new immigration applied to our vast resources -n-e should be able to shoulder our war debts without serious effect on our growth. BETTER OFF, CANADA M. A. Morrow. Addressed Methodist District Meeting on Soldiers' Problems dP IN PASSING THB MUSr MAK Winnipeg is having about as much excitement about civic strikes as Cal-gar>- used to have about oil strikes, j Canada's Red Triangle campaign ! was a huge success. Nearly a million more than was asked for was raised. Kaiser Karl visited his boss. Kaiser Bill, the other dpy and now Austria-Hungary is being told just where to head in at. ' WOOL .SHpRTAGE HAS EFFECT 0*N FASHIONS. ' Warning is being sounded by the alllpd govetnments against wool shortage and against the use of an unnecessary anaount of any kind of ' cloth in making garments for women, says the Nelson News. So far no one has sounded any warning against the use of superfluous yards in the mauu-lacturo of men's clothing because modern inen have always succeeded In keeping within an entirely reasonable limit in that respect. We are becoming accustomed to food rationing and whether we like it or not, we miAt com$ down at once to something of the same kind, for clothes. Those who follow the edicts of the Paris dressmakers are already planning frocks from -^Vi yards of ,40-inch goods. Wool shortage and � several other kinBs j)f shortai^ are back of tbls new fafiiion. Already the fashion designers are learning the lesson and women will henceforward go about with the Btraieht silhoueite-which being literally translated means a shortage in jjoods. Hollanders are wearing slippers wlUi cloth tops and wooden soles � u4 we on �this side may display with pride home-made ^Uppers whose lops ware secured from what was left of grandfjtfher's great coat after several B�rnient8 had been made for the ' gran^cbildren, iThe slippers in Hoi-iand retail -for the equivalent of $i a ,pMlr in our money and-for those who '"'like'them-are very satisfactory. The i.''.rfoli of MaKnes, according to a groat 'Dutch dally, are wearing sabots be-�causo of the slwy shortage. Thoy are thus setting an exanjple to the poorer . people wiio, later.on will be obliged - to return to ^ sabots. .'A prominent pbysictai^aad alderman wears sabots regulai-ly, although n,o. other part of biB uostumo, even to the blgb hat, is Did you take back your surplus sugar and flour yesterday? It you did not you are liable to a tine of $100. Don't be a hoarder. Here's the new food order: "Only sufficient cane sugar and flour for ordinary requirements for a period not exceeding In days, shall be (in the possession of afty person." People's Forum Communications under this heading must bear the signatures of the writers. That the returned soldlei' is better off in Canada tiuin in any ether part of tho world is tlio opinion of 15. .M. Morrow, who spoke last evening at the annual district meeting of the Lethbridge dlslrlcl ut tho Methodist church, lu'ld In Wesley hall. In dealing with tho viewpoint of the returned soldier .Mr. Morrow took a most reasonable view of the matter dealing with the disdmrged men in Canada some of whom are able to taks up i their old occtip.itlous. others being ] Incapacitated and sMl others .men who have been actustomed to live in the open and who must now take up other occupations. Mr. .^^orrow has great praise for the vocational training schools established in Canada but there is difficulty hero also for there are certaijr classes of returned soldiers who fi^om a sense of Independence or physical ^Incapn-blllty will not or cannot attend these schools. This constitutes a very serious problem. Mr. Morrow thinks that the men who return may be briefly classes as those who are capable of carnlrg a llvlihood al their old occupations and those who are not. He also mentioned tubercular problems and in this respect mentioned how much better tho men in the Canadian hospitals arc than in the Imperial army. It is a big thing foi- returned men , to gel settled back nto civilian lite I �sa!h, Mr. .Morrow states. Some of these men have had someone else to dj tlielr thinking for two or three year.i and feel quite at sea for a ^Wille. Then Bgain the returned sol-, dicr has a changed outlook on life,! his fellow men are closer to him, ho j has come into a higher plane of liv-1 Ing. and the groat thing that France ] has done for him 'ts to kill ills solflsli-l ness. Then too, tor a long time he has an unsettled feeling coming from that continual state of expectancy that he anconsciously adopts over there. Community Farms. Mr. Morrow spoke a few words on the community farms, commending them highly, but dispelling the idea that tbe soldiers have any wisli to withdraw fro mthpir fellows. Ho also mentioned the scheme providing for a soldier to borrow money on unencumbered property. At the conclusion of his excellent | address Rev. PhlUip.s asked if Mr. Morrow had any idea of tbe number ot men who would bo incapacitated for life. Mr. .Morrow replied that the percentage was small and that men classed as such improved greatly after their return to Canada. Another q^iestlon that waS asked was it there were any clearly defined requests made by the returned soldiers of the government. Mr. -Morrow answered that any .suggestions made by them had always received consideration. He bald one of the aims of tbe Great War Veterans' Association was to see that fair pensions were granted to persons physically incapacitated. Ho thought that the country was doing everything In its power for them, but at the same time remarked that British subjects have liberties that at times must be paid for, but that all things being equal the Veterans had tbe preference. Questioned as regards tbe attitude ot soldiers towards the church Mr. Morrow thought that their outlook was l)roadened and that the prayers of one church wore as good as another. Queried regarding any question ot unity in the churches there, he thought there wore too manV denora-Inaitlons. -�Vn expression of appreciation and thanks was moved by Rev. Mr. Cvagg and tendered to Mr. Morrow by Rev. E. J. Kodglns, chairman.
