In the event of the Nanaimo mine

that the people of Nanaimo will
arouse themselves to a realization
of their danger and put forth every
effort to apply a remedy before the
consummation of such direful results. The removal of five or six

We notice that last week's "Province" has seen fit to criticise somewhat severely our citizens generally for their attitude towards our
volunteer fire Department. We
propose to review as briefly as possible some of the most important
actions of our city council—their
representatives—in dealing with
matters as they have been brought to
their atiention in connection with
our fire department.
Let us go back six or seven years
and see how matters stand. About
seven years ago our firemen began
to agitate for a new fire hall.    The

hoped that the outcome of the conference between the Company and

considered by them some months

To the people of Nanaimo the employment of cheap Mongolian labor
by the Union Coal Company has
more than ordinary significance, us
the product of the Union mines
comes into direct competition with
the product of the Nanaimo mines,
and it would be but sheer folly to
close our eyes to the fact, that without a counter-balancing advantage
in favor of Nanainio, it is but a
question of time when lhe Nanaimo
mine owners must also employ
cheap labor, or else retire, bullied
and beaten in the unequal struggle.
Alberni mines both of which fields
there ean be little doubt will prove
extremely rich. Nanaimo, moreover, is the only city in the Province that does not impose any tax
ri improvements, an item of importance where large undertakings
are  concerned.     The extra cost of
