To Employees of The Canadian
Collieries (Dunsmuir)
QWING to the grave situation, which has arisen in
Europe and the possibility that Canada may call for
the loyal support of its Militia and Naval Reserves, we
desire to notify all of our Employees that those who are
members of the Militia or of the Naval Reserve and are
called for service or those who may choose to enlist for
service, have our full and hearty approval in doing so.
Employees so called upon will please register to that
effect at the nearest office of this Company.
All who are so registered will be re-instated in their
former positions when they shall have finished their service
to their Country.
By J. R. LOCKARD, General Superintendent.
Approved, H. S. FLEMING. Chairman,
Executive Committee.
The announcement made by the Executive of the Canadian
Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd. to the effect that any of its employees
who desire to volunteer for active service in defence of the Empire,
wouid find their employment waiting for them upon their retiu*n,
while highly gratifying to employees is at the same time indicative
of the patriotic sentiments and sympathies by which the management are actuated. Since the manifesto was issued by the Company
many other large employers of labour have taken a similar course,
but we believe the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd., were the
flrst to take this step and it is a source of much pride to us to find
our local company in the vanguard with a patriotic movement of
this kind. No doubt the privilege offered by the company will be
taken advantage of by a large number of employees. For every
Canadian's patriotism is stirred to the core since the first news came
indicating that the "Old Motherland" was in peril; but thank Gotl,
it is abundantly clear that the heart of the Empire beats true.
When one observes the spontaneity, the unanimity and the enthusiasm of the rally from all quarters of the globe one is irresistibly
reminded of all that the Old Flag stands for, and it is with deep
thrills of pride that we are able to claim citizenship of England's
'"Dominions Beyond the Seas."

Everybody admits that now. Our town is passing through a crisis. Owing to a combination of circumstances, some of which are beyond our control, and some of which are
universal. Our main industry, the mining and production of coal, is almost paralized and
our usually large payroll has shrunk in proportion.
May we venture to suggest at this point, in our mutual experience, that the main slogan

Believe in Your Town.
If you live in a town you should
beleive in it. If you don't beleive
in your town, yoh should move
out of it. Like other places it has
advantages that other places
have not, and your modesty
should not prevent you from
making it known whenever the
opportunity presents itself At
home or abroad, whether pursuing pleasure or engaged in business, do not neglect to give
those with whom you come in
contact to understand that you
live in a live town, populated by
enterpriseng go-ahead; progressive people and one that is advancing instead of retrograding.
If you can truthfully speak in
commendation of the ability of
your professional men, the squae*
dealing methods of your merchants, the excellence of your
mechanics, the superiority of
your churches, schools and public
institutions, and the industry,
energy and sobriety of your
citizens generally, let nothing
prevent you from exercissng
that privelege. You should learn
to beleive, if you bo not already,
that we have all these ahd in addition the best located town, the
finest country surrounding it,
with the most fertile farms tilled
by the most in telligent class of
farmers to be found in the Province.
If there are any drawbacks it
will not be necessary to mention
them. The people and newspapers
