JANUARY 20, 1017  '.   $1.00 PER YEAR  E SUPPLY  Only Two Furnaces' inBlast  at Local Plant���������Strike  Situation  A3 has been apparent for the past  two weeks, the labor disturbances in  the Crow's Nest coaljhines have resulted in cutting off the coke supply  for the smelters throughout the  province.  f At the Granby smelter in this  city only two of its eight furnaces  are now being operated. Thjse will  be kept in blast as Icing as possible,  bui if the differences with tlie coal  miners are not soon 'adjusted, the  Granby will be compelled to make  a further reduction'to a single fur  nacp in the near future. No new  shipments are being made from  East Kootenay, and. only the coke  that was in transit at the time the  .'ty.cn stopped work is now arriving  at the local smelter. It is expected  that this supply will suffice to keep  one' or two furnaces running for a  month. At the end of this time, if  the coal miners' strike is not then  settled, the smelter will have to  Hiiow out'all its furnaces.  . " Only married married men are  'employed at the local plant, all the  single men having been laid off until the smelter is in a position to  ���������blow in more furnaces. /As these,  men Have been employed for a  couple of years at good wages, jt is  not anticipated that their enforced  idleness will work a hardship on  anyone.  A telegram was received in the  city today from Hon. Martin -Bur-  rell, member for Yale Cariboo, stat-  ing-that the Ottawa government intended to do everything in lis power  to bring about a settlement of the  labor troubles in the Crow's Nest.  noon. The referendum will be put  to the men on Tiiesday^next. '  ' At ' present there are' .strikes at  Fernie^ Fr^nk, Michel, Hillcfest,  Coalhurst and Cb'inook. It is thought  Bellevue may go out,-the miners being, engaged in a meeting to' decide  this matter.  David Rees, of Bankhead, international board member of the district,  arrived.in Calgary today from the  general board-meeting at Indianapolis. He will say nothing of what  transpired at the Indianapolis con  ference, or whether the union in  tends to take any more active part  in the settlement .of the disputed  points between the miners and the  operators.  CalgaiiYj January 25.���������The representatives*- of the' United Mine  Workers of America of District 18,  in session here, reoeived a message  from Hon. Thomas Grothers, minister of labor, tonight, stating that he  was leaving Ottawa for the west immediately to confer with the men  regarding conditions. Mr. Crothers  asked that the referendum decided  on Wednesday be withheld, as well  as any contemplated action, pending his arrival. He also urged the  representatives to have their men  go back to work.  The representatives left Calgary  for the various mines, and will endeavor to persuade the men out to  return to work uutil the conference  with tho minister of labor has been  held.  The district board of District 18,  United Mine Workers of America,  has been holding sessions in Calgary  for tho last ten .days. Today it de  cided to submit a referendum to the  miners of the district to learn if the  iijo'n wish to accept the finding of  the recent investigation.  The board itself has not yet decided whether to recommend or op-!  pose the acceptance of the report, of  the ^government investigation, but  will arrive at a decision on this at a  meeting   to   be held In to this uftur-  Marquis of Queensberry  May Settle in Province  Prince Rupert, Jap. 24.'���������The  Marquis of .Queensberrry has left for  Granby Bay to visit the Granby  Alining & Smelting company's plant.  He has just arrived on the coast accompanied by H. S. Waugh, a mining expert. The marquis a member  of the distinguished Douglas family  of' Dumfriesshire, Scotland. Fiom  Granby Bay he will go to Ketchi  can, and from there to Prince of  Wales island, off the Alaskan coast,  where he has important mining interests.  Speaking of after the war conditions, the marquis intimated that  the Canadian west would receive a  tremendous influx ol population  from the British islands as well as  from various pa'rts of Europe.. He  himself was contemplating settling  in northern British Columbia, a  region of immense material wealth  and having very encouraging prospects. ��������� '"....    '.������������������-..  Cereal Map  When the "Piping times of peace"  return to this fair Dominion, the  old cry of "Back to the land," which  was so often heard before the war,  will no doubt be renewed with ten-,  fold vigor. Therefore the present  is perhaps* an opportune time for  Canada to set forth to the world the  advantages of settlement within her  boundaries. As a means to this  end the department of the. interior  has issued a new edition of the  cereal map which indicates graphically-to the prospective settler interested in Western Canada the various species of grain which are being  successfully cultivated.in each-township or district.  Simplicity has been the keynote  in placing this infomatiou in concise form. "For example, taking the  four principal grains, wheat is indi  cated on the map by a red circle,  oats by a green, barley by. a yellow,  and flax by a blue. Numerals in  each circle indicate the number of  thousand acres of the particular  grain under crop. The advantages  of such a map, emanating from an  official sgurce, are obvious.  ��������� Copies of the publication may be  obtaiued free upon application to  the superintendent of the railway  lands branch, department of the interior, Ottawa.

Citizens who may  have frozen pipes that require thaw  ing out, should showtheir appreciation of the reduced expense by being  prepared to pay for the work in ad  vance.        " "  C. A. S.

Four days previous, while  coasting down a hillside on skis, his  favorite pastime, he contracted a  severe cold. Although the best  medical assistance obtainable was  summoned, the case resulted fatally.  He was only five years old, but was  a great favorite with everyone.  According to a Victoria dispatch  married women in the provincial  government service must explain  how it comes to be that they find it  necessary to work for a living when  they have husbands who  shonld be;  f they are not, bread   winners.     A  number of women employees in the  egislative buddings have been ' re  quested to explain the need-of their  being employed. All single men,  too, of military age and physically  fit, and who have no dependents,  must"go. This was the decision arrived at at a meeting of the legislative councii Tuesday morning, at  which curtailment of ,������taff both in  side and out was discussed.

Somehow bis people  do not care to hear him preach, and  our salary is far behind. My hus  band feels so blue that he does not  care to visit the people and pray  with them, and so he sift around at  home' nearly all the time." The  other sister said: "We are gptti-ng  along fine. My husband spends  much of his time visiting, and the  p"Ople like to have him kneel and  pray with them in their homes.  Our congregations ace always   good,  A delegation of prohibitionists"  from Vancouver is to meet the pro- '  vincial executive in Victoria at 3  o'clock this afternoon to back up a  formal written demand for a^ royal  commission, to investigate Sir Richard "McBride, agent-general in ..London, with regard to alleged irregu-  laries in connection with the taking  of the overseas soldiers' vote on the  prohibition referendum.  Prohibitionists are freely intimat-  ing the deferred vote was a frame-up  to^beat them and that the late premier was one of the instigators of it.-  They openly ^ allege, also, that investigation will sho^ that Sir Richard McBrid was a willing party and  that he closed his eyes to certain  irregularities. Prohibitionists say  the matter should be "shown up"  whether they win or lose. A formal  resolutioQ passed by the prohibition  executive has been sent to the provincial secretary. This is to be the  subject of today's conference.  The resolution sets forth in detail  certain allegations and demauds that  his actions rtapecting the taking of  the vote be investigated by a royal  commission. Should the government consent to this it undoubtedly  will mean the early return to this  province, of Sir Richard, as nothing  less than his personal attendance  would satisfy the prohibitiouists  who would bring the charges.  General Election If  Sevigny Is Defeated?  An Ottawa dispatch to the Montreal Star says the argument is  heard at the capital that the prime  minister should not go to England,  with political problems unsettled at'  home, and that particular significance is attached to an editorial in  the Journal-Press, the new Conservative paper in Ottawa, which  says: "It calls for an immediate  election if the Hon. Mr. Sevigny is  defeated in Dorchester next Saturday. Conservative members are  quoted as urging Sir Robert to delay his answer to Sir Wilfrid Lau-  rier's proposal until the Dorchester  result is known."

FRIDAY, JANUARY 2,6,  1917  The indications at the present time are that  mining     and   smelting  operations   throughout the province will shortly come to a complete stoppage through the  labor disputes in  the  Crow's  Nest.    The  federal  government  has made several threats that if the differences  between  the  operators and their employees  are  not immediately adjusted it would take  over  the coal  properties  and operate them.  If the men and the operators do not come to  an  agreement   within   the   few  days,   these  threats should  be  put  into execution.    The  government could find ample justification  for  taking this step.    The metals produced at the  Granby, Trail, Greenwood and Anyox  smelters  are  needed in   the  manufacture of war  munitions  for  the entente  powers.    Unless  'these plants are"supplied with coke, they  can  not continue operations.    In our opinion,   no  other justification  for the execution of  the  government's threatened action  will  be  re-  quired. ���������������  Hon. John Oliver, minister.of railways, and  .in his capacity of acting premier, last week,  took up with Mackenzie & Mann the tjuestion  of the property on.the Songhccs reserve which  the Canadian Northern wants for its terminals  at Victoria, and asked the company foi: details as to what it intends- doing with the  prooert}'-, and also what the company would  give for it. In plans filed by the railway with  the late govornment, it,was indicated-that the  railway wanted some forty-one acres. A.mass  of-correspondence over this is on file, but it is  altogether too indefinite for the new ministca  of railways. - ;  The .Dominion parliament was- formally  opened last Friday-by his excellency the Duke  of Devonshire, the governor-general of Cau-  'ada. The session promises to be one of unusual interest, as it will, decide, among other  things, whether there shall be an early election. ���������  In the January number of The Agricultural  Gazette of Canada Hon. Martin Burrell, minister of agriculture, appeals to the man on the  land as follows:    For two years and a ��������� half,  war, red and ruinous, has raged  through   the  world, and still no decision has been reached.  There is reason to hope that before 1917 closes  the struggle for liberty will have been won," or  be greatly advanced. Amid the varying phases  hf this titanic conflict the fact stands out more  clearly  than   ever .that agriculture is of supreme importance.    Extraordinary   measures  are being taken by the allied countries to  increase and encourage production.    It is earnestly hoped that every farmer in Canada will  strive to increase the food supply of the  em-  . pire.

There was nothing else for us  to do, as we did not have the money to continue operations."  Two more provincial by-elections, each of  more than merely local interest, will be held  soon���������in Alberni, to fill the vacancy caused  by Premier Brewster's refinquislmie/it of that  seat, to sit for'Victoria, for which he was also  returned in the general election; and in Newcastle, which' has. been left without a-repre-  sentative by Parker Williams' acceptance of a  commissionership on the workmen's compensation board. J. P. Bledsoe has been chosen  as'the Liberal candidate for Alberni. and  JanTes Wilkes, of Vancou'verr, a native ~st>n of  Newcastle district, will run in that riding in  the Liberal interest. The Conservatives have  not yet chosen their champion in Alberni; but  the somewhat notorious ex-Socialist, more recently former Conservative-capitalist member  for Nanaimo, J. IT.
