Battle With Dagos.
Winnipeg, Oct 26—A pitch
ed battle between the local police authorities and a gang of
50 Italian navvies who wen-
working for the C. P. R., occurred at Portage la Prairie about
noon to day, and during its
progress some 50 shots were
fired, while the air was also
thick with stones, clubs and
other missiles, us a result of the
fracas, detective William Cox is
sorely wounded, having been
hit with a huge stone on the
head, and injured in the back
and leg by flying debris.
Three of the Italians have
been safely lodged behind the
prison burs, and mora arrests
are expected. The trouble
arose over an attack made by
the Italians on their foreman,
named McDonald, who last
night was slugged by a gang,
Attempts were made today to
arrest the ringleaders, when the
battle between tho men and the
constables occurred.
Later on the ringleaders were
arrested and consigned to the

Is McBride Responsible ?
Victoria, Oct. 28-The Colonist, the organ of the government, this morning dismissed
all speculation as to the reason
for the refusal of McBride to
take Houston into tho cabinet
by the following statement:
"We are desirous of giving
the facts of which we are in
possession. Houston was rec-
commended to lieutenant-governor sir Henri Joly for a portfolio by premier McBride. Sir
Henri refused to accept Houston as un adviser, and has based
his refusal upon an incident
which transpired in the legislature. We forbear to comment on the situation today because it raises a question of extreme gravity, but wo may say
this, that an adviser of the
crown is not responsible for the
action taken his advise in a matter affecting the personality of
his cabinet.
"A prerogative which the
crown undoubtedly possesses
has been exercised, but the
grounds upon which it has beeu
exercised ure such as to raise
a constitutional question upon
whicli we prefer to reserve comment."
Premier McBride and hon.
Robert Green, both interviewed
this morning, disclaimed responsibility for the Colonist
leader re Houston. They say
the Colonist is not the organ of
tho government, nor can they
bo held responsible for its statements, neither will they deny or
affirm the report of tho government's action.
The question now is one of
ministerial responsibility for
the governor's act.   The  best
More Steam Shovels for Granby
Mines, at Phoenix.
Some months ago the Granby
mines installed a steam shovel
in its oro quarries at the Knob
Ilill in Phoenix. Now two
more will be put to work aj-i
soon as possible. Later it expects to use one of tlie machines
undergn 'ind in the huge stopes.
The present shovel has a dipper
capacity of three quarters of a •
cubic yard, while a now one already ordered will have a capacity of a yard, equal to 1500
tons per day. This shovel is
expected to arrive next month.
The third steam shovel is of
different make,'anil has been in
use by the C. P. R' at Castlegar
on the Columbia river. The
mine management secured it to
see if it will load broken ore in
the curs. It is expected to arrive every day now, and will bo

The fact that a speed of 124.8
miles an hour hus been reached
on the Zossen experimental road
in Germany, as was done a
short time ago, is interesting,
imt nearly as high has been attained in the past. An exchange
recently speaking about the
-peed of railway trains, showed
that more than 20 years ago a
j team engiue arid car attached,
both of light construction, were
driven at over 100 miles an hour
on a single rail "saddleback"
road, built by Capt. J. V. Meigs
at Boston. Ten years ago the
Empire State- express ran a
mile at the rate of 112.!) miles
a n hour. Two year ago it train
cu the Plant system in Florida
ran live miles in two minute and
thirty seconds, equivalent to
120 miles au hour. Some experts think that while there is
no mechanical difficulty in the
way of running trains at the
rate of 100, miles an hour or
more; no engineer will be able
to stand the strain of such a
speed without a nervous breakdown. But with a thoroughly
protected track, free from grade
crossings, with nothing to disturb the mind, and with vibrations reduced to a minimum, it
may be found that a train cat
be run at two miles a minute
with less mental tension than is
caused by. half that speed to
day, when a speck on the track
a mile away -.may develop within sixty seconds into a wagon
load of people.
A measly little mnskrat cost

Lieutenant It. E. Perry U. 8.
N., is making preparations for
another expedition to reach the
north pole. According to a dispatch from Ottawa, Captain
Bernier wants assistance from
the dominion treasury to en
able him to fit out an expedition to reach the pole. We do
not know whether any provision was made for Captain Bernier or not: we have uot received
a copy of the supplementary
estimates, but it seems to us in
view of the large territory we
have lost through the Alaska
bouudary award, that it would
be imprudent for parliament
to vote money to assist Captain
Bernier to enjer the race for the
coveted pole against Lieutenant
Perry, so long as weliave not
those treaty-making powers referred to by the Canadian premier in a speech recently delivered in the house at Ottawa.
The United States of America
want that pole, and they are
going to have it, no matter who
discovers it. How humiliating
it would be to the Canadian
people if Captain Bernier should
discover it, aided Ijy public
funds, to be Alverstoned out of
this new territory by a treaty
made between the United States
aud Great Britain. What possible claim, somebody might ask,
could the United States set up,
if Beruier reached the pole before Perry and hoisted the British flag? The United States
can be trusted to find a basis
for a claim, ant) the British to
entertain it, in thoir present
state of truckling to Uncle Sam.

The Liberal government at

there is no difficulty in the senate since there is now a Liberal
majority  of about 20; but it
does not follow by any means
that the people of this dominion are going   to swallow it
holus-bolus.   After the senate,
which in days gone by when
tho Liberals were in opposition
were by them called "old women", who were to be wiped oil'

party of economy and purity
came intp power, hut now with
an obedient Liberal   majority
are, we suppose, the wise men
of the dominion, will come the
sovereign    and     independent
electors of Canada, who   will
give their judgment according
to their opinion  of the scheme
without regard to party affiliations. . The subservient  members of both parties will vote as
they are told to  vote by their
leaders, and  are not supposed
to exercise   their   intelligence,
except to express their approval of th ir  party's scheme   or
disapproval of that of the opposite party.   If the  government had decided upon any Other plan of increased transportation facilities, if they had formulated the scheme of theJeader
of the opposition, Mr. Borden,
before he advocated it, there is
no doubt whatever that theSubservient followers of the government would have sworn by
It lu every detail, and those of
the opposition would   have opposed it in every way shai*eand
form,   It,  therefore, behooves
every independent   elector  to
take an intelligent interest  in
this important undertaking proposed by the government of the
day.   This they are doing in every portion of tlie   dominion;
several hundred petitions have
been presented to the parliament of Canada against this
Grand Trunk  Pacific   scheme,
many of them signed by supporters of the government, arid
while some of them   may have
been bogus, it is slandering the
people of Canada and their representatives to say they  were
| all of that Character.   We purpose showing at some   subsequent date that this scheme to
which the government look for
much: support may not bring
about the results expected.

stirred up an intense interest
all over Canada. In one point,
however, Canada has outstripped the Yankees. By clever
foresight a Canadian firm is the
first in America to produce new

award. The Family Herald and
Weokly Star of Montreal have
been waiting for the decision to
go ahead with their new map of
the Dominion, which shows the

Of Interest To Farmers.
It should be unnecossary to
urge upon the growers of garden crops the importance of using thoroughly reliable seed, or.
to defend the practice of testing'
seeds    before    sowing    thetm
Many gardeners have suffered
heavy loss through purchase of
inferior or old seeds and almost
all who have used the seeds  of
flowers  and  vegetables   have
had occasion, at one time or another, to lament the uso of seed
of unknown quality.   Since  a
good start is always important
it would seem that to devote a
little more attention to securing  satisfactory    seed   would
amply repay tlie majority  of
To  the   horticulturist, to  a
greater extent than to the agriculturist, is genuine   reliable
seed    important.     With    the
seeds of many farm crops their
actual value can be determined
several months before planting,
because the question of variety
does not enter to the name extent as in garden crops.    With
the garden crops triteness   to
variety is   paramount importance and   dissappoiritment in
that, regard may mean,  practically the loss of a season's crop,
if the difference be a   late maturing variety for an early one
or vice   versa.   It is therefore
important that growers should

most approved method was used in making the tests, two

While it is true that to secure
genuine garden seeds is a more
important cons deration than
to have seeds thut show a high
vitality, it is evident that a person sowing seeds should know
approximately what per ceut
