Sept. o".-Mr. Eliaa Rogers, who has been malving a tour of the west, whore he hits large mining and other itJter(?iit3. nrl'lVert' in Fernie on Wednesday, the day of the biimii in Number One Hast .Mine at Coal Oi-eek. Mr. RoKex-s" appearance here just at the juncture of the strilte of the Tin-era over the single shift dispute_has no connection with that situation, and the butnp In Xuinber One Bast was not the primary, cause ot the strike, as such action had been decided upon by the luinei's iiere and at Michel, before the bump bumped. Jlr. Rogers pointed out to tlie press represeruative that there' nre_^ nine mines operated by his conipan.v; anrt the bump ofthe-'ttii in one of them could not be attributed to the gas cluestion upon Avhich the miners based their claims for a-single shift. He also drew attention tp the fact that the bump happened during the morn-ing shift, while,the contention of the miners wis that, the explosions happen .generally during the night shift. Mr. Rogers gratited a half hour to the reporter in>Vhich the general situation relating to the present controversy was discussed. He did not agree with the contentions of the minors in these two camps regarding the efficacy ot the single shift system as a preventive of danger from gas accumulation, and is opposed to its adoption at this- juncture, when increased coal production is so necessary in supplying the industrial needs which go so far towardj keeping up the efficiency of the "tremendous fighting machine w'liich is being maintained by the allied nations in their supreme effort to defeat the German ambition to rule the world. Mr. Rogers could give your representative no information as to the probable action of the government regarding the present state of affairs, but made it clear that his company felt that the miners were not acting wisely, even when considering their own int^ests when they deliberately stopped the production of such a necessary commodity as coal, and*while i-e-gretting the action taken, expressed himself as being prepared to take the consetjuences. whatever they migiit be. Government Taking It Up. The matter was being taken up by th'e government "and it would have to take its course under the- machinery instituted by the government for the control and regulation of the production of coal. -He spoke in complimentary terms of Commissionev .�Armstrong, with whom he was personally acquainted, but the influences which exerted themselves in such / cases, made it at times, difficult for/those in Authority to completely control what they were supposed to guide and direct; and. these'things made it difficult to forecast what action would result froni the present situation. A guarded query as to the possibility of .Manager Wilson sevev.iug his Cffnnection with the Ci-ows Nest Company, brought from Mr. Rogers a most eulogistic estimation of .Mr.- Wilson and the work he had accomplished in this field. He knew that the manager had been offered glittering opportunities, if he would consent to take positions with other concerns, but be had not co^idered any of them seriously, and never, with the consent of .Mr; flogers, would tjae management of the Crows N'est Company be changed. Mr. Wilson was well acquainted with the coal mining industry, having grown up in the raining business, and he.,was familiar with all the leading coal producing districts, especially ^^th the U'ilkes-Barre and Pittsburg districts, where the conditions vere similar to those obtaining in this field. Under Mr. Wilson's management, the mines here were being brought under .su.eli conditions as to eliminate danger, as far as human care and forethought could go. Tfie project of working under a single shift system, would fake time to prepare for such a change and at the .same time keep the production of tonnage not anywhere near normal. Vast improvements had been effected under Mr. Wilson's directions and tills policy would be continued with the object ot mutually benefiting both miner and company. Says It Is Agitation. .^s to the attitude of the miners here, he thought that most of the discontent WAS the result of agitation not warranted by the situation. Ife thought that tiie district officials and most of the conservative element amongst the miners were disposed to act with reason, but there seemed to be an element which was gifted with the faculty of talking wildly, and it was this faction rather than the sober second thought of moderate men that was responsible for the single shift contention,-regardless of consequences which jnight throw many men out of employment and reduce mine production at a critical time when Increased production was needed. ..Mr. Rogers will be leaving this evening, and as Manager Wilson has not returned from the Coast, where he had 'gone-v^before the arrival pf .M)'. Rogers, there does not -seem much prospect of an immediate settlement of ihe differences which have resulted in the stoppage of work here and at' Michel, unless some decisive acticn is taken by the govarnment to have the mines starfetl at producing coal pending the final .settlement of the single shift controversy. By-Products. Prom the immediate .situation, the jconversation drifted to the possibil-itiBs of ilie establishment of by-pro-duet ovens hera iwd at .Michel. .Mr. FEATURE AT FRKNK t tABOR DAY , (From Our Own Corra'^pondent) EJlaiririore, Sept, 6.-Vliss Mnggie Kemp, ithe assistant at the post office arrived hoine this morning.

FOR SALE AND INSTALLED BY THE HART HARDWARE Co. 418 THIRTEENTH STREET NORTH PHONE 1294 WANT SALE NATIVE WINES STOPPED Toronto. Sept. 7.-The executive committee of the Ontario branch of^ the allianco pa.ssed a resolution today urging upon the government and tlie! board of license commissioners that as a?'soon as po.ssible the sale of native wines be proiiibited, except for purposes permitted under tho Ontario Temperance act. The Patent Medicines act was referred to as unsatisfactory, as there is, it was said, nothing to require a manufacturer to disclose that fiere is any alcohol in his preparation and nothing to prevent hi.s altering the amount ot alcohol contained therem. Rogers slated that he had succeeded in arriving at a verbal agreemeiit v/lth IJnglish capitalists, just before the outbreak of the war, which was to have been reduced to writing and operations begun under its provisions, all of which had to be abandoned until after the great conflict"'was ended. Mr. RoEors thought that, nptwitli-ata;idine the many difficulties to be encountered, that the project would be revived after hostilities had ceased, and that it was one of the jiroba-bilities awaiting consummation. . The Bull River iron ore deposits had been investigated by his company, and their development depended upon the rapidity which^ the development and extension of the iron indttstry would'show as I bought was a question of time alone. -----....
