Is tt not a ware that a very largo aroa of woodless prairie country cast ami west of this pity,.as well as north and south, depends on tho coal output of our mines to keep lis sealers from freezing to death this 'winter.? Inhabitants of towns anil country, are begging for coal ami anticipate the winter with serious concern. The strike has lasted since March, with, so far, as tho public can learn, only futile attempts at a settlement. If it Is bull-headed obstinacy that prevents an adjustment of the matter, It is.time in the interests of many thousands of famlllos, .that over-ruled. Let tho government step In hero and do something, not at the invitation of tho Company or of tin Union, but for, tho eako of tho. people who must have eoau .* Yours truly, coal user. R. A.

It is about time the men, women and children of tho west were considered In these labor troubles. It Is easy enough for employers ar.d employees to fight about wages, union recognition, etc., hut it must be re-memlxtrod the people of th)s country are to be considered. At tho present moment the wo�t it face to face with a coalfam'ne. What are we going to do about it? Simply this, call upon the Labor Department to interfere on l.ohulf of tho people who don't want to freeze to death.
