A special to the Buffalo Express from Strathmore, Alta.,
says: Here they are 100 families
from old England, who have
journeyed 50()0 miles by steamer
and sleeping car to their new
homes on the readyinade farms
of the Canadian Pacific railway
in the great irrigated districts
of Southern Alberta. Beholding
them, a Yankee recalls the coming of certain other sons and
daughters of old England in the
Mayflower in 1020, at the mercy
of winds and waves, unwelcom-
ed, to homes in a forbidding
wilderness. Eroin the drama of
Plymouth to that of Strathmore,
from the Mayflower to the Empress of Britian— the immigrations of men have seen no
contrast so striking since the
world began.
Here is material for a pastoral
epic, Pioneering Made Easy, the
Unique Thing in Immigration.
Recall the pallid pilgrims and
what they faced at Plymouth
Rock, and contrast with these
sturdy British yeoman, accompanied by their wives and
children, clad in their ready
made clothes, bringing to these
Canada-madefanustheir British
-made ideas about farming—a
hopeful, cheerful lot. No Indians,
no uncertainties, no hazards—
faith a plenty. These Britons
know they have a great deal to
learn but they* have been accustomed to making the most of a
littlo piece of land in the old
home, and they will not admit
the possibility of failure in the
new laud under such auspicious
The readymade farm innovation promises to work a revolution in immigration and
colonization movements. Because it reduces to a minimum
the possibility of failure, also
the danger of an inrush of undesirable settlers, also tho fear
of a long wait until a crop" can
come and relieve the wants of
the new man in the new land,
it will be copied.
These Britons are being supplied by the Canadian Pacific
railway with farms of from 80
to 100 acres fenced, with 50
acres iu crop, with a dwelling
and stables, with a well and all
the tools required for operating
the farm and with a perpetual
water right. The company
does all this —not for nothing-
been use it wants to get into
western Canada some of the
best of the yoemanry of Great
When the immigrant arrives
he looks over the farms, selects
tlie one he likes the best, goes
into the house, hangs up his hat,
and his wife her millinery, gets
a meal, and takes possession.
The is his. He takes it off the
company's hands and from the
proceeds of the first crop that
matures in a few months he
pays the first installment on
the purchase price. He need
not complete the payments
until ten years pass; he may
pay them all at once. The one
provision that is insisted on is
that the settler shall have $2000
This restriction is made so thut
only the best farmers will conn*.
The company does not want
any except the best, and it is
having difficulty in meeting the
demands even with that restriction.
Two years ago the readymade
farm idea occurred to the mind
of .Sir Thomas Shaughnessy.
Thc experiment is a fixed policy
now. The president decided to
locate the farms in the 3,000,000
acre irrigation block in the Bow
river valley, which a few years
ago was wild land almost entirely given over to uufeticed
cattle ranges. Instead of going
to the government and asking
it to undertake the work, or
waiting for private companies
to act, the great power of the
Canadian Pacific railway was
put behind the scheme. Today
about 1,000,000 acres of the
3,000,000   in   the   district  have
the water for irrigation.      Thi

is proving easy for the Canadian
Pacific to secure more applications of the right sort than it has
readyinade farms to offer.
The American public little
realizes the stir that has been
created throughbut the British
empire by the new immigration
idea. Great Britain is in a tremendous stato of excitement
over it, so much so in fact that
the London Daily Times sent
two moving picture operators
with the readymade farmers to
take them all along the route.
First Fatal Accident.
Thc first fatal accident at the
Hosmer mines occurred on Saturday last, when Mike Danus
and S. Kozlowski were killed.
It appears that the two men
with a timber packer named
E. Domma were working in a
chute in No. 0 when a sudden
fall ot coal buried all three.
J. S. Musgrove, the pit boss,
and L. Harris, a miner, were in
the place when the coal gave
way, and had a narrow escape.
They had just wtuuted tho men
to come out, and jumped down.
After several hours work
Domnia was taken out alive but
the two miners could not be
reached until six o'clock in tho
evening. They were both dead
when taken out, death being
caused hy suffocation as no
marks or bruises of any kind
were   found   on   the     bodies.
iu a few minutes swept through
from the first floor to the roof.
The falling tank broke gas
pipes, causing the explosion.
Persons dead are girls and
pressmen, the editorial and
building staffs in the front of
the building getting out safely.
The Montreal Herald has a
fine live story building, practically new, on Victoria Square.
Tho company's president is
James S. Brierly; Fred Abraham
is secretary-treasurer, and John
Taylor, business manager. The
paper is in its 99th year.
The latest despatch gives the
number of those killed'in Montreal Herald fire as 32.
Bellevue Easy Winner.
The league game between
Bellevue and Coal Creek was
played at Bellevue last Saturday
was something of a hummer.
Billy Hughes said the Coal
Creek boys were only going
after tho points and Bellevue,
in Billy's estimation was relegated to darkest Hades. However
when the gamo commenced,
Bellevue showed the Creek men
there was something doing.
And although there was a cyclone blow
of the Creek's goal.
Early in the game, Varley, of
Bellevue slipped on a rock and
was incapacitated, having to
leave the field, leaving only  10

Accidently Shot at Michel.
Archy Clark, a young Scotchman about 20 years old, is lying
at the morgue in Michel as a result of a shooting accident last

From this on things went
badly for the Creek and Petri

rumors on the turf thnt Billy

That would please the men folk,

Wheu you buy a eiyar,
Get a BUCK-EYE, it's far
And away the best smoke in Lacombe."

If there Was any sort of fire apparatus,
it was yanked from its housing and
hurried along with all the speed that

a neighbor's horse was requisitioned to
hitch to the hnnd engine or hose reel,
two men sitting in the back of. the
wagon tn hold onto the rope and the
others strung along between the wagon*
tail and the "tub," the gently derisive
name given to the old hand engines.

of his contract, method its lust analysis.
Winnipeg Well Equipped
Winnipeg is a city well equipped for
handling flres through its lire depart
ment. Luke all of the city's public service departments, Ihe fire department is
not old in years, but there is hardly
any that is older, nevertheless, When
Winnipeg was   incorporated  as  a  city.
Chief Buchanan and Ilis Horse Dick—On the Jump For a Fire
was no fire apparatus, bucket brigades
were formed, nnd (he full pails were
passed alon^ one line of men and boys
and tlie empties back by another line,
it there were enough hands. If the fire
was nol too far advanced by the time
these old fahsioned means were put in
working order, sharp work and a good
supply nf water would put it out, ami
there never has been anything invented
that would make men work as hard as a
ire. Let a fire break out, and the laziest man in town would be neck and
■eck with the most diligent; he would
■run as fnr and as fast; he baled water
•r worked the pump; stood astride of
the ridgepole, or rescued stock or fur-
•iture with as reckless a disregard for
•ver exert ion as an yman; took his own
life in his hand, if need be, to save the
rife or property of another; did his level
hest  when tried  by fire.
Modern  Methods  Are  Different
Methods of modem lire fighting are
quite different, hi sparsely settled see
tions, llu1 old hand engine is even yet
honored b\ use, ami the bucket brigade
is not an unknown quantity. I'ut city
flres caunnt wail upon such slow ami
■comparatively feeble met hods; t oo
much is nt stake in 1 ift* and property.

who finds the fire will send out (he old

who are near at hand; if he wishes to
rail the fire department, he rings in uu
alarm from the nearest box—a simple
tninp and a speedv wav to call help for

ling speed of electrical impulse, the
message dies to the fire stations and
warns the department; speeds along

November 8, LST.'t. the men who had the
nerve and good taste to set up a city oa
the prairie around the Hudson's Bay
post, had also the sense to appreciate
the need and value of a fire department.
The size of the "city"—about fifteen
hundred population—'lid not warrant a
paid tire department, but a lire fighting
force was organized on ,i volunteer basis
and there was no lack of amateur spirit
in the new organization. When a meeting was called for the formation of this
first real fire department of the city of
Winnipeg—September 24, 1S74 — the
meeting roster included the names of
the most prominent citizens, and a good
many of them. The City Council adopted a recommendation of the Fire, Water
and Light Committee and appropriated
twenty-five thousand dollars for the construction of tanks for fire purposes and
for apparatus. This generous sum was
supplemented, and its purpose furthered,
by an appropriation of forty thousand
dollars for a public water service.
Apparatus of Early Days
Ity September oi' the same year, the
Kire, Wafer ami Light Com mitt e had ordered a steam fire engine, four hand
hose reels, one hook and ladder truck
and two thousand feet of two and a half
inch hose. For n water supply, six
tanks were Lnilt at. different points
along Main Street beginning at Broadway and ending al n point opposite
Ryan "s  Block.
These tanks were filled with water
from the river, putnped in with the fire
engine ami pumped out by the same machine  when  fires took  place.
Then' was trouble in outfitting the
Winnipeg fire department in those early
days. Enthusiasm and men were plenty
— as lhey always have beon to fight
fire—but Pnto seized upon the new apparatus as its plaything and tossed it
about with more or less unhappy resultsj
Transportation into Winnipeg was not
the finished product that it is today, and
il took some months to get the fire
engine to the city, to adjust some
freight charge difficulties and to get
the engine turned over to the city for
use. This was bad, but worse things
happoned tn the hook and ladder trucks.
The first one ordered wenl through a
bridge in Minnesota, and arrived at (lie
ami thereon terminus instead of Winnipeg. A second order wns filled and
started, but was overtaken on the way
by the very thing it wns intended to
hold in check and burned.
These were only hints of what unkind Fate could do when she set herself
to the tusk of doing something. A new
fire hall hud been built on a lot pur-
chased bv tin1 city on Lombard street—
then called Lost Office Street—and this
building wus well stocked with fire apparatus; was, in fuel, the pride of tlie
volunteer department and the citizens,

At the fire, floods of water are turned

hull caught (ire and burned flat, with the
engine, hook anel ladder truck and sonic
more of the city's apparatus. The philosophical historian who recorded this disastrous happening indulges himself in
some grntiilati.ry remarks because the
lieise reels and much of the* department'b
hose were not in the burned building,
the hose having been hung up to dry
alter the Christmas Eve fire, and the
reels left outside because of the lack
of space in thee department's scanty
But a new engine wns ordered the
same day: a new fire hall put up; the
imperishable parts of the fire engine
that went through the fire, were gather-
eel up and another engine—appropriately named the Phonlx—was built around
them; the hook and ladder truck was
similarly  treated,  ami  the  department

Fought Fire Fo| Fun
Those were the days when the fire
laddies a! Winnipeg fougiil flres for
fun.    Thero was Bume Bhow of paying
the men but il wns far more Bhow
than substance. The City Council set
aside the inenili'-uiit sum of two hundred
dollars each year fur the purpose, and
citizens whose property was attacked
by lire sometimes gave the department
a cash reward tor its services. Then
there were lines—some-thing a trifle dis
proportionate to the emoluments cef ,,f-
tic-e. it weeiilel seem. Out of the scanty
sum raised by civic grant and private
donation, members or the department
received n clcillnr for attending n fire,
nr half a dollar tier responding tee an
alarm—-rung fmra tli- Are hall or by
lim bell mi Grace Church, :it the corner
of -Main and Water Stroots. Those whee
[ailed, wore fined tin lull dollar i.i the

thoy failod tie show up nt practise—
helel oiii-e n week during the summer.
"Ain,nt this timo," remarks our philosopher of Hie Winnipeg (lro department i rds, "there wus considerable
dissatisfaction in regard in remuneration   received.     In   tlie   ligM   of   the
figures cited, such ; ndltion does nol
seem wholly unnatural, but, ut ull
events, Un1 dissatisfaction wns thoro,
and resulted in a meeting over which
Captain McMillan- now Sir Dauisl McMillan nii'i Lieutenant-Governor of
Manitoba—pooslded, Captain MeMil-
bin hael been chief of Hie lire brigade

by the City Council unci held Ihe place
after this re-organization meotaing ami
up to August, JSSil, when he resigned
because of the pressure <et' other busi-
uess and luck of time to give to lire department all'airs.
The ,-liief event of interest to I lie
lire department in 1S81 seems to have
....mi Ihe purchase of a chemical engine
.unci a new hook and ladder truck, a
most timely addition to the apparatus
since the following year put Hie department to its trumps to attend to the fires
that followed thick and fast in the
fast-growing city. In February of that
year, there woro three fires, one of them
burning Hie Knuppen House, at the corner cef Donald Street and Portage Avenue, although the department worked
hard for five hours trying to get the
lire uniler control, In March, u (ire that
started in the Main Street store of A.
l.'urrons, got away because the tire tank
wns frozen, and before it burned out,
this (ire ate up a hundred thousand dollars' worth nf property, including the
Montreal Bank. In April, the Clomcnts
Block, on Main Street, went tee ashes
by the short route, and May Day morning wus marked bv a lire in (he Dundee
Block, on Main siieet. tli.it est eighty
thousand dollars.

W. (I. McHobie, a lire -fighter of Icing
experience with tlie Montreal elopiirt-
ment, was the lirst chief of the paid lire
department of Winnlpog, and his salary
wus fixed at eighteen hundred elollars
a year, a salary which was exceedingly
good compared with the $3,000 which
i hief Buchanan draws in this day of
far greater responsibility due to having
a city of one hundred and fifty thousand population to care for ns against
fifteen thousand in 1*>,S'J, and a property
value of $134,490,614 in 1909, to only
$10,303,220 when the city's paid fire
department wns first organized,
Then there wore four engines;
now there uie nine; then the department hail three1 chemicals and three
heese reels drawn by horses; today there
are six chemicals and thirteen hose wagons, and it takes seventy horses to ibe
the work where seventeen were quite
enough in 1SS2, One hook and ladder
truck did duty then but tbere are seven
now besides two aerial trucks—sixty-
five and eighty-five feet long, ami where
the depart ment was at least fairly well
feet of hose, it takes forty-three thousand feet tee make up the needed amount
teeclny. Such a thing ns u water tower
wns met dreamed of then us a necessary
auxiliary tu lire department work; now
the city has one that pours water upon
a lire from an elevation of sixty-tive
feet at the rate of twelve thousand gallons per minute when the tower is served by a fire engine, anil more when uniler high pressure. Three lire halls—not
very lurge—sufficed to house tho apparatus nnd men then, but it takes nine
now and there is no wusted space; in
short, the [mill lire department of Winnipeg bus kept pace with the city's
growth and with the demands that modern methods of lighting fires make.
Splendid High  Pressure  System
Broadly speaking, old things have
passed away and all things huve become new with the Winnipeg lire depart-
men!. The fascination Hint lire hns bad
for mun over since the first bit
wns snatched from some natural
source and made lo warm dnrk unci chilly caves whore primitive man made his

The Winnipeg lire department is well

North. It is equipped with engines of
tho gas driven type, ami develops throe
hundred pounds pressure on demand,
nnd within a few minutes from the time
nf an alarm, a steady pressure of one
hundred und fifty pounds—quite enough
for any but the most extraordinary fire
demands—being maintained at- the
high pressure station at all times. The
high pressure system is served through
eighty six hydrants, and covers all of
tne heavy business section of the city
with capacity of extension two hundred
feet outside of its limits by streets.
There is also a lavish water supply
through the ordinary mains. These cover
practically the whole area within thc
city limits anel nre equipped with fifteen
hundred hydrants feer fire use. Besides
this, the eld underground water tanks
—now obsolete hut retained for emergency purposes—ure available and have

of early days to sixty-four, with capacities varying from fifteen thousand gallons to thirty thousand each. With a
water supply of nearly fifteen million

THE problem nf tho summer outfit is really far more bar-
rassing than the winter outfit, for not only is it essential for Hummer gowns to look always fresh and smart,
but for mere comfort's Hake must there be a far larger number than is required for winter. It is impossible, for instance,
to eliminate wool gowns from the list, but they do not play
an important part. There must be gowns of some weight,
not so warm or heavy as wool, and there must be foulard and
pongee gowns for the very hot weather, so that the woman
who finds it comparatively easy to look smartly gowned during the cold weather if she be provided with three of four
quite satisfactory costumes must realize that double the number for summer will be the rule.

Chanteeler influence, red predominates, but there is little in-1
dieation that it will so continue to lead.   There arc? most ex-'
.'uisite blues, and many cef them clear, viviel blues, and the?
duller antique shades.    There are greens and mauy yellows,!
and more biack gowns are now being made than has been the
ease for a long time, while white in any texture aud weight
is most popular.    Bands of satin unci fancy borders to plain
materials tempt the lover of novelties, unci the colorings are
most fascinating in both heavy and light fabrics.    Figured,;
striped anel plain, all arc iu style, while ihe fuel—it is nothing
else—of combining contrasts makes a variety, if that is de- '
sired.   The conservative still elect the one tone* ceehir scheme I
in preference to all else, but for those who claim that its too
monotonous the contrast of coleer and material present a most
alluring field of choice.
.    #    •
The use of black trimmings has much to recommend it,j
but is not to be rashly advocated. Facings of plain black
satin on voile de soie are elfective, but then the oue tone of I
color is also effective and the contrast of material makes a I
contrast of color. Trimming plain materials with figured j
is also one of the fashions of this season, and last year's blue i
serge costume can be wonderfully freshened if the coat be re- j
lined with polka dotted foulard, with collar and cull's of tbee!
same. This is more novel than the black trimmings, which j
give the more marked contrast.
Simple but charming evening gowns are quite a feature of |
this summer's styles, voile de soie, chiffon, soft finish satin, I
and for those who must cunnt pennies the fascinating mer-j
cerized wash materials and 'lowered muslins are to be had j
in a wonderful variety of color and design.    These last can ''.
be made over lawn linings, although Bilk is to be preferred,
and now is tne opportunity lo use up thc old evening gowns
for linings, for the fact that the lirst freshness has departed
will mike no difference under the other material.    When ex-!
penso  is being carefully calculated, be  it remembered  that
silUa and satins are often much less expensive in the end them :
the transparent materials that do not cost half the price, fori
the former do not require an expensive lining, which the latter as a rule do demand.
VT ANY curious legends are still current in European coun-
-*-*-*-   tries concerning curses, hereditary or otherwise.   One]
nf the most striking instances on record of the uppar-
ent fulfilment of a curse occurs In tlie history of a British
family, the Montagues, original possessors of the Cowdray,
cstttto at Midhurst, now held by the Karl of ISgmont. This
estate belonged, in lh • days of* Henry VIII.. tn tlie Roman
Catholic Church, being a dependence of Easebourne Priory,
When the monasteries were taken over by Henry, the king
presented the confiscated property to Viscount Montague,
who, though himself a Roman Catholic, had, it appears, no
scruple in accepting it.
The prioress protested against the spoliation of the church,
and finding such protest to lie cf no avail, she cursed the
Montague family With tlie "curse ol" lire and water,'1 nud
foretold its extinction.
It seemed, however, that so long as the Montagues eonlin- j
lied Catholic this curse was inoperative. Hut in the eigh- >
too nth century the then Lord Montague murriod a daughter
nf th-' famous Countess of Huntingdon, uud, under her ?n* j
iluence, became a Protest ant, 'Pales were told of conventicles]
held in the famous Cowdray Park, but efforts to hold similar!
meetings in the chapel always failed, owing tt) the fact that
I lie light:* were mysteriously extinguished.
It further appears that the first Protestant Montague, on
tiis deathbed, reverted to the ancient faith, a circumstance !
which, it may be, accounts for the fact that, despite thei
curse, he died peacefully iu his bed, Hut liis son did not live!
to enjoy the estate. He was drowned iu tlie Rhine while,
trying to shoot the falls of SchalVhausen; ami the legem! has,
it that the messenger was met at Calais by another messenger i
with the announcement that CoAvdrny House hud burned to'
t In* ground.
This tragic fulfilment uf the double curse ni "fire and
water" was such a seven1 blow that no effort seems tn have
been made to preserve the ruined mansion or rest nre it in I
any way. The family removed to a lodge in the park, which
has since been mnell enlarged ami become the present Cow
dray House.
The estate passe 1 tn the sister of tin- drowned heir, ami,
not  uiuiiv years later, the curse nf water was again  realized,

and tbe result was Backache, Lumbago, Rheumatism and Heart Disease,
which caused boi li her aud her friends
grave anxiety.
She had suffered some years when she
heard of cures effected by Dodd's Kidney Pills, and bought a box, which she
used with such splendid results that she
continued to take them till she was

Voile de sole, silk veiling aud marquisette, preferably tlie

has been said many times, the choice of colors i.s Wonderfully
seem as though ihe most critical might be satisfied. In green
there an' endless shades, for green is one of the favorites
this year, and a most charming mode] is in one of tlie new
shades combined with liberty satin, a perfect match, nr. if
so desired, with black.- Tlie former is the smartest and tInmost generally becoming. The style might ge called elaborately simple.    It consists of a  lower skirt with wide facing
; of the satin, a full overskirt finished wilh two bauds of satin,
a  most simple  waist  with yoke collar,  tlat   band down   the

Liberty satin is a material that has again come into favor;
it never did entirely lose its popularity, fnr it is such :i be

1 used in all colors, and iu many of the brightest colorings as
' well as in black. In one nf the new shades of red is an ex

\ mend recklessly. Again is there the double skirt, the upper
, quite full and gathered into a broad band of Venetian lace;
Three tows of heavy cording form the belt that joins tin1
; waist and skirt, and are placed   to   give   the short   waisted
■ effect.   The sleeves are in three wide tucks, but do not reach ;
i (piite to the elbow, and have as finish a puff of the same lace.
This same model copied in  black  is also extremely popular.;
Artistic and aesthetic nre terms applied  to many nf the'
newest  styles, and   if  loose,  more  or less  floppy  effects  are
suggested by these terms, they   certainly   are   well   named.'
.The sleeves and  waist in one piece,   with   no   shoulder, no!
sleeve  seams,  give a    vague   outline,   while   the  full  skirts,'
; drawn in about the ankles wilh a wide baud of lace or satin,
i quitQ effectually disguise the natural lints of the wearer.   The
: low cut collar, with its encircling frill, may display a pretty
' throat, but it breaks the shoulder line ami displays most uu
eonipromisingly any defect of skin or formation of the neck.1
■ A truly beautiful woman has certainly this season much tn be
thankful  for, as she  knows  for once that her  rivals cannot <
hope to compete in the face nf such odds,
A  gown of  Nattier blue liberty  that   has main   points to
recommend it  for the woman who is tall   ami   slender.    A
j quite  full skirl   is gathered  ut    the   sides   and   bad; and  is
I elaborately embroidered in heavy silk of the same shade as1
the material. The loose blouse waist fastens under the left
j arm and the waist and skirt are joined under a  wide folded,
■ belt that is caught under a large, fancy buckle. Tlioro are
Lends of ribbon falling from under lite buckle that are finished
i with long tassels. This model in white i- as charming and as
; elfccth e ns in any color.
Wool materials are so associated with out of door costumes
I aud tailor gowns that when in fhe summer season models of
[cloth gowns are exhibited it always seems as though there
* were some mistake. Although there are not many days dur
ing the heated term when a woollen or serge gown would seem
| practical in the country, at the seashore or iu the mountains
i there are many opportunities for wearing it. And then the
| models displayed in serge or doth can almost invariably be
; copied in other materials. The blue and white striped serge
j or cloth could be made equally well or better in pongee or
j foulard, and there are many details that  could be improved
■ upon in the other fabrics;' the waist iu a lighter material
! would be far smarter, the sleeves more graceful, for the model
is exceptionally smart and novel.    The model for a cashmere
I de snie would serve far better  for pongee or  voile de soie
j for the majority of women, for it   would  require the most
! perfect of figures and regal pose not to look shapeless in a
j gown of this description made of too thick or heavy fabric.
The constant changing of fashions as the weeks *go by is
making the selection of the summer wardrobe unusually dif
ficult.    As  has just  been   instanced, the different  materials
can be chosen with an idea of making them up in other colors
and  fabrics, and this is a  lasl*:  that   requires   cool   skilled
judgment.   The color is not so ditlieult as the material, for it
can be decided by choosing the becoming; but the material,
will it drape well, will it make the figure look too thick?   All
this is of far more consideration in this impractical age than
whether it will wear well.    Fortunately it is not necessarv to
buy the most, expensive materials to secure tho best results,
ond there never was a time wdien there were so many effective
materials to bc had for so little expenditure.    No* one color
is ordered by Dame Fashion.    Fur the moment, owing to the

Such fours are, of course, quite
groundless. They are about, as sensible
as the German war scare. The Americans who are going into Canada intend
('anada will become their nation, of
which they will be as proud as thev will
always be of the land of their birth.
Thev are going into the great northwest
to cultivate the waste places, to add
tn the wealth of tho Dominion. Canada
needs immigrants, needs them imperil
tively. From no other quarter of the
globe can she obtain new citizens so
wholly desirable, Thev should be wo!

Wm. Whyte to be Made a Knight.
The Montreal Herald says:
The interesting report comes
from the west and has gained a
wide currency that William
Whyte, tho second vice-president of tho Canadian Pacific, is
likely to bo the successor of Sir
Daniel McMillan in theliutenant-
governorship of Manitoba.
Associated with this is tho rumor
of a knighthood for Mr. Whyte.
There can be no doubt as to
the popularity of the appointment were it made, for among
the prominent men out there
Mr. Whyte takes an easy lead
in public favor, but the lieutenant-governorship is a goal to
which statesmen lookfowardas
a fitting reward for services to
the country, of a political character. Mr. Whyte has kept
himself aloof from party politics
and hence, no doubt, in a measure his allround popularity.
It is not certain that Mr.
Whyte would accept the position were it offered him. It
may be doubted, too, if he could
serve the west in any other capacity better than he is doing

the station to see if any of their
debtors were trying to get out
of town and leave them in the
