READER Too many people seem to think their duty of citizenship ends when they vote and obey the law. Hav ing put a man in office they stand at ease until the next order comes to resume the political march. Un Ies there be a rapid awakening the time Is not far distant in this terri tory when an object lesson will force the taxpayers to realize they must be on the job and that they are a part. In fact the most important part, of the government. The lesson will come in the shortage of coal. We are basking now In the heat of sum mer, but It will not be long before the fires and furnaces must be light ed. 'Any thinking man knows there will be a coal shortage. The condl tlons in the local coal yarns are well known, and the Increasing difficulty of obtaining fuel can be learned by any one who cares to Inquire. If the people have been alive to their duty they would not today be caught be tween the millstones, the coal barons on the one hand and the labor lead ers on the other squeezing out their lives. The public could have ended the strike in short order. But the public remained indifferent Warm weather was no time to get excited about a possible coal shortage. The coal barens have not worried. They don't care whether there Is a short age or not. They will arrange their output by fixing prices. Even today the individual remains apathetic. If every man and woman were to write a letter to our congress man and to our two United States senators, particularly the congress man, asking what steps are being taken to protect his district and de manding that he see that we obtain an adequate supply of coal, some thing might be done. There are plenty of letters written for free seed. Why not a line on fair priced coal? Let our congress see we are on the job and that we erpect it to do what It can to protect the people. The man who borrows trouble never asked to pay it back. Is i ni iiiiirc cumii r ui in mill 1 jJN 1 1 iiii i iP v I m mm H hipII m mxk-x:"X-kk:mxk-kkxx'hkx-:-:xxxxJ J HEMSTITCHING BIG PURCHASE R. N.
