W F. for the Western' Canada Coal Operators' as- sociation, is however of tho belief, that there will bo ifiifllclent coal mined to meet tho demand. Tho demand'for labor In tlie mines grows there seemB to bu iio relief In sight. Alberta mines could put men -to work- today If thoy could net 'them. Lethbridge mines alone need COO. but no ainounl of coaxing can get them. As against this labor shortage, orders for coal arc coming in-at if staggering rate. One local mine- onVMonday and Wednes- day of this week received enough orders In those two days to keep the whole force busy for-two weeks. Old orders are pileU.iip In very largo num- bers. In connection with the mine labor shortage situation the Lethbridge Board of Trade has recently sent the following nighi lettergram to lion. T.

It will be recalled that this Hoard of Trade" directed attention to the farm and mining labor situation in Southern Alberta In memorandum sent you April Till. 1910. All the coal mines in this district nave, eveji. cnrly'date in the season, large .iiumber of unfilled ord- ers on their books, and the.only rea- son that the. obal ia not forwarded is that the necessary labor cannot be procured. The western prairie farm house and householders 'in western j cities depend 'largely on this district tor fuel supplies for winter, and It Is necessary, that these requirements should be'Voperly cared for. Would ask good enough to advise us it and when the recommen- i datipns are adopted, and to give us Cr If nil particulars as to what steps may be laken by o'ur coal mines to avail themselves ofi'-tho facilities proposed to be given for relieving labor situa- tion. IIIlIllHlel Ol Jlll'lllt; WIIIIVB legality of judges receiving remuuer ation 'for conducting such commis- sions. Following the remarks of counsel Commissioner Gait made a defence of the course taken by him- self and other judges. "Your Lordship." said .Mr. Phillips, 'asked Mr. Kohl: Itogers If lie desired lo add any statement, .and I naturally assumed .such statement would have some reference to the matters under proue. The statement came as such a surprise that I. feel tliat a certain responsibility attaches to myself as counsel for the crown. 1 was so when the witness used the language lie lined mid made a personal attack on your Lordship in substance accusing yon of graft that I was utterly unable to deal with tlie matter at that time." Mr. Phillips said he did not wli to have attributed to him the usual responsibility studied to counsel who placed a witness in bi-x.
