I COAL AND IRONY. Mr. D. A. Thomas, of the Cambrian Combine, is concerned in some coal ventures in Western Canada, and he is the principal supporter of a project for building a railway 1,500 miles long, which will be used for tapping the coal sources. "Wa are getting on," as Mr. Asquith said. It is pleasing to think that Mr. D. A. Thomas, in the intervals of giving advice to Cabinet ministers, miners' leaders, and business men, is able with extensive view to survey the world from Tonypandy to Teheran in the interests of fresh profits. We hope there is nothing in the rumour that he has designs on the Equator. But whether or not, his extensive activities provide an excellent object for the miners of South Wales. The international ex- tension of capital involves as a logical corollary the international solidarity of Labour. The internationa! solidarity of Labour is the surest guarantee of peace. There is irony, to which only a Thomas Hardy or an Anatole France could do justice, in the fact that the profits wrung out of miners in the Rhondda Valley and out of European communities by the sale of coal for naval purposes, is invested in such a way that it will ultimately wreck the system which makes exploitation and warfare possible.
