judge to the supreme court.
Then there will be a division of the
province for judicial purposes Into north
and south. The centre of the northern
part will be Kdmonton and tbe centre
of the Houlhern pan  will be Calgary.
A court of three supreme court
judges will be given power Tb try appeals from the dlslrlct court> This will
not make necessary meetings of the
supreme court en banc uh is necessary
at lhe present time and will result in
much speedier legislation. The supreme
OOUII ''ii banc will be necessury to hear
appeals from the decision ot any supreme court judge.
This, it is believed will make neoss-
ISry a new court house, and It ts rumored thai provision will lie made at the
coming session of lhe legislature to

and Calgary on precisely ihe same plan.
The Calgary court house will be lo
cated upon the block on which the old
court house is lorated, and to the. rear

by Count Hayashi, thu Japanese minister of foreign affairs, for a settlement
of the postal question In Manchuria
have reached Pekin, but they have not

It has been learned also tbat Japan
consents to submit ut once proposals
for the settlement of the telegraph difficulty.
China fears, however, that the proposals will be In the. nature of a compromise, and that they consequently
will be unacceptable. The Japanese. It
would appear, have yielded to the

SECOND TRIAL IS BEGUN
No   Dispute  as to  Facts  in  Thaw  Case
���Fight Will Centre on   New
Plea of  Insanity.
New York, Jan. 13.���Prior to the opening of the trial of Harry K. Thaw today.
Attorney A. Russell Peahody stated that
no application for a commission to go to
Pittsburg and take the testimony of
Mis. William Thaw would be made, as
the defendant's mother had telegraphed
.-���he would come on to New York when
needed. Mrs. Tli aw Is still a very sick
woman, hut the value of her testimony
as a personal recital, rather than in the
prosaic form of a deposition had led the
attorneys to abandon the latter proposition. Thaw was called to the bar
promptly at lb a. m. Within the next few
minutes Aasslstant District. Attorney
Garvin had begun the outline of the
prosecution's case to the Jury. He said
that the great publicity the Thaw-Whin
affaiv had attracted should but urge the
jury to a thorough understanding of the
grave duiies Imposed upon them.
"The defense in this case," said Mr
Garvan, "is Insanity. The material fact'
are admitted. Insanity, let me ndjun*

GROWING BUDGET
Expenditure Increased by
a Few Millions
REPORTS   THIS  WEEK
Hon. R. Lemieux and W. L Mc-
Kenzte King Will Divulge Results���Events at Ottawa.
Ottawa. Jan. 13.���Some of the more
reckless government organs are claiming that the government is cutting
down expenses. They offer in proof the
estimates for the year beginning next
April, as compared with those for the
current year, which began last April.
There is an increase, even on their
own showing, of $2,3^5,795 on capital,
which appears to them to be a trifling
matter.
But when wo examine their comparison we find the government writers
comparing the first or main estimates
for next year, with the sum total of
the main estimates and all the supplementary estimates of last session. Wo
shall have supplementary estimates and
plenty of them of expenditure for next
year. There Is only one fair basis of
comparison available, that is the difference between the main estimates for
this year and the main estimates for
next year.   They are as follows:
For this year $105,689,519
For next year 119.237,091
Increase      13,547,572
The increase will really be larger
than this, for the supplementartes will
undoubtedly exceed those of last session.
The main estimates of last year called for $9,376,386 toward the redemption
of debt falling cjue. Mr. Fielding did
not have the money, and could not borrow It except on hard terms, and so renewed the notes at four per cent, interest, and met his floating liabilities at
interest rates up to 7 per cent.
In next year's estimates the sum of
$29,200,900 is required to meet debts
falling due. The prospects for borrowing this money at even 4 per cent, are
uot very bright. When Mr. Fielding
took office he could borrow on lhe credit
of Canada all the money he needed at
two and three-quarters per cent.

storey tenement buildings, extending
from 3rd to 94th street on first avenue
and which had been remodelled for factory purposes and was occupied by half
a dozen enterprises, was burned entailing a loss of about $500,000. The fire
was prevented from spreading to adjacent tenements only by the diligent
work of the firemen for a period of
three hours. So serious was the situation at one time that four alarms were

TOKIO GROWING UNEASY
Japanese   Dislike the  Spread of  Exclusion Sentiment in America���Rome's
View of  Takahira.
Tokio. Jan. 13.���Incoming cables. Indicating an overwhelm ng sentiment In
America In favor of au exclusion bill,
are causing much uneasiness among the
leaders of all shades of politics, who
have repeatedly expressed the conviction that the Americans did not desire
to discriminate against the Japanese
and would accept the attitude of the
Japanese government as evidence of Its
sincere desire not to embarrass the
American government, and at the same
time save the "amour propre" of the
Japanese. The uneasiness has been Intensified by the delay of a reply from
Washington to the Japanese note of
December 31.

Conference of Representatives of States
Meet to Discuss the National
Guard.
Itoston, Jan. IS.���Delt-sates from nearly every state and territory of the union
filled Fancuil Hall this morning when
Gen. Charles Dick of Ohio called to
order the tenth annual convention of
the National Guard Association of the
United States. The business of the opening session was chiefly of a routine
character, including the exchange of
greetings and the appointment of committees.
The convention, which will remain in
session three days, will discuss the most
important legislation since the enactment of the Dick law five years a&o. A
meeting of the executive committee of
the association was held in Washington
recently with Acting Secretary of War
Oliver and members of the general staff,
at which the provisions of a bill were
agreed upon which will take the place
of the Dick act. It Is a very comprehensive measure and is believed by its
authors to obviate many of the difficulties which have heretofore prevented
the militia from complying with the requirements of tbe Dick act as to conformation.
Among the important modifications
suggested is one allowing each organized division of the militia one inspector of small arms practice with the rank
of lieutenant-colonel; each brigade, one
with rank of major; each regiment of

when the organized militia is called into service to repel invasion or suppress
insurrection, anil the mill-S shall be so
called into service in advance of auy
volunteer lorce which il may be determined to raise.
Another important changed section is
in section 'I, which now directs that
1 uurt-s-niartial for the trial of officers
and men of the militia, when in service
Of the I'nited Stales shall be composed
uf militia officers only. This Is to be
amended BO as to make it read "the

Probably the most Important change
suggested is in section 18, which now
empowers the secretary of war to issue
standard magazine guns, bayonets, etc.,
to arm the militia as Uie army Is armed.
It Is proposed fo amend this section by
authorizing the secretary of war to

It is expected the convention will
adopt a resolution asking the present
(congress to appropriate the sum of $5,-
0011,000 for the purpose of arming,
equipping and training the National
Guard. At the present time the appropriation Is $2,000,000 a year, which
it Is declared is totally inadequate. The
convention will also go on record as opposing the effort of the War College to
have congress so amend the Dick law
that it will be possible to send state
troops outside of the United States for
military duty.
Zola Statue Dedicated.
Paris, Jan. 13.���The statue of Emile
Zola recently erected in the Palace
Dauphine, was dedicated toduy with interesting ceremonies. The date for the
dedication was appropriately chosen,
this being the tenth annversary of the
day on which Zola's open letter to the
president of the Republic, entitled
"J'accuse," appeared. The statue was
begun by Constant In Mounter and-'finish-
ed Alexandre Charpentier, after the
death of Meunier. The pedestal upon
which the statue stands bears several
handsome bas-reliefs, the principal one
representing the scene In the Cour
d'Assises at the time of the sensational
Dreyfus hearing.
