CP.R. Will Grant Advances From
Port Arthur to the Coast-
This City Will Benefit
Winnipeg, Feb. 27.—An amicable
settlement has been reached in the
friendly negotiations which have been
in progress some time between the
Canadian Pacific trainmen and tl>e
management toward an increase ot
Wages commensurate with ths increas
cd cost of living. While the exact
terms are not known, it is understood that all classes ol trainmen
from Port Arthur to the coast are in
receipt of considerable increases.
8o far no official notification      of
this raise in wages has hecn received
at the local offices of the C.P.R., hut
It Is generally believed that the amicable agreement has been arrived at
and that the raise will be forthcoming in  the near future.     This      Increase will  probably lie in neighborhood ol from flve to ten per     cent,
.and will make a   material   difference
to the payroll of the C.P.R. employ-
I ees in thc city, as there are Irom one
I hundred     to   one hundred  and fifty
with their homes here, each receiving
from J1D0 to $125 per month.

building is intended, and the bank
officials for whom some thirty or
forty buildings have hcen erected in
tbc past year, claim this to be one
of the most up-to-date and most satisfactory from every point of view.
The basement is divided into three

Newman Presses for Settlement
But Council Sits Pat Until
Everything is Right
Last night the electric Btreet decorations which have existed to no purpose for many weeks put on their
gala attire and disported themselves
with Illuminations, for which everybody was truly thankful, including
Mayor Hamilton, the city council,
and the citizens. This, of course,
means that the new power plant is

Chicago Detective Agency Confirms Statement That Northwestern Bandit is Captured
Chicago. Feb. 27.—That "Old Bill"
Miner, second only to Jesse James
in notoriety as a train robber, will
be one ol thc White Sulphur, Oa.,
bandits arrested at Gainesville, Ga.,
last Thursday, was asserted at the
bureau of identification of a national
detective agency here today.
Miner was famous lor a decade as
one ol the "bad men" of the Northwest. He was sentenced to life Imprisonment several years ago at Kam
loops, H. C . for robbery of the Dominion Express ot the Canadian Pa-
Cillc. With two others he escaped by
digging through thc walls surround-
condition of affairs is permanent nobody is willing to take the responsibility of assuring the public, but it
is sincerely hoped that no further
difficulty will be experienced.
Everybody seems to lie satisfied
now that the light and power service has been resumed. The service,
however, is not bein^ supplied thru'
the new machinery at the power
house, but is still being generated by
the old machinery and thc old flume,
the reason tor thc new machinery lying idle being that a certain little
bearing ol the new machinery is not
true by perhaps a thousandth part
of an inch. Nobody but a practical
machinist can estimate as to what
possible damage such a discrepancy
might occasion, and so the wheels of
tbis machinery will still remain idle
till this flaw Is adjusted. Mayor
Hamilton however, assures us that
this part has licen secured and will
be installed just as soon as possible
and the new up-to-,!atc machinery
will then be put into commission.
Contractor Newman, is, of course,
clamoring for a settlement now that
he is satisfied thnt the work with the
exception of a little pointing on thc
dam. is completed, but thc city council have decided to stand pat until
they arc assured by the engineers
that everything is completed sntis
fartoi'ilj, and until thoy arc in
structed by such engineers to accept
the work. The mayor thinks the.
contractors should bc ofl the job tomorrow.
A committee meeting was held last
night at which it wns decided to nsk
Mr, Swing to have both Mr. C. B.
Smith and Mr. IlaTnir here to inspect the plnnt and report on it ho,
fore any settlement* with Mr. New-
mnn could be disniBscd. Mr. Kwlng
does njt wish to accept nny responsibility in this score himscll nnd con-
soyiien'ly both the gentlemen above
nnmod have been wired for and arc
expected here in a few days. When
they arrive a special meeting of the
council will probably bo called, at
which the matter of tho settlement
with Mr. Newman will lie the principal topic lor u'lisidautiuu.

Constables Terry and Cleland Get
a Small Hand Out
At a meeting ol the police commissioners held last week a communication was received from Constables
Terry and Cleland, the two night police, asking for ■, periodical rhnnge
from night to dny duty, or as an alternative a calse in pay of $5 per
month. The commissioners not seeing their way rlrar to institute the
change asked tor, unanimously agrc,
ed that the raise was ruining to these
men and consequently raised their
pay by the amount asked for.
Arrangements were also made to
instruct the city clerk to call for
tendon for summer clothing for the
police nnd accordingly the tenders
will bc called for.

to tui pulpit. if perchance he has
an opinion of his own and is not
afraid to express that opinion then
it is a politician he will make. Alexander Lucas, the member tor Ynle

the legislators and newspapers ot B.

notice ol what he has to say. Not
that he says a great deal, but whai
he says is worth thinking over. He
made a speech up there in Victoria
the other day that took bis listeners

ent manner in which it was delivered
but because of the progressive ami
up-to-date ideas he espoused. This

are now, just as fast as he could in

It is an old Baying that many a
truth is spoken in jest. Whether
Congressman Champ Clark was speak
ing in jest or not In referring to the
Stars and Stripes waving over Canada, he voiced the sentiments of a
large ptrccntage of the Americans. It

night by D. M. Rae and Dr. Ham 1-

Saturday's paper, agreeing to take
on a rink of green curlers against
any other rink of green cutlers. Dr.
Hamilton accepted the challenge and
took on Frisby, Stone and Ferguson,
while Rae played with J. Howson, F.
Younir ami Mulholland. The game nil
through was a series of features,
flukes nn.l fumbles, among thc lorm-
er being an undignified sprawl on th?
ice by the editor aud a tumble over
a group of stones by Howson. However all'6 well that ends well. nnd
as nobody was seriously hurt an.l
the name ended in a victory lur
Hamilton's rink by a score of 12 to
6, it was general',)- camcoded that all
ended well. Tht two skips are good
sports, and this introduction of new
blood into the game st the instigation ol D, M. Rae will give the
roarin' game added interest.

"One oi the strongest men 1 ever
knew," Dv. Sicla-rt states, "was thi
Ihiihius wrestler Krnest. Roitor known
professionally as Ernest Sirgllicd.
This young man came to mc ut the
age of twenty, and trained three
months in my establishment. Ills
height wns six feet one nnd a half
inches, and his weight 111 pounds.
He wns very thin and his hones were
surprisingly largei He trained    very
diligently and Increased grently m
strength. His diet, selected Iiy lum
self, consisted eliielly ot vegetables,
bnnd. and milk, with little meat,
nn.l liis appetite wns good, but not
en irmoiis.   Unfortunately, I did   not
weigh Ilis food. His even -ng meal
consisted usually ol less than two
pints ol sour milk, with n little
sugar, bread nnd butter. On this
diet Siegfried developed a degree of
strength in the hands, legs nnd back
tin I 1 have never seen cijiinlcd, and
that put him In the very tirst rank
ot wrestlers, although he wns rot
■liitinguishod by great skill or quickness of movement.
"Tlie idea of applying Siegfried's
dl I nn.l mode of life lo other pupils Immediately suggested itself, but
it proved to bo utterly impracticable
In most, cases it wns Impossible to
ei utrol the stomach, which simply
'struck' and retimed to perform Its
duty. A friend of min*' so Injured bis
itotnach by four successive suppers,
i la Siegfried, that he suffered several weeks with dyspepsia.
"In similar circumstances 1 ob-
•icrved two other celebrated strong
m n, who ate more meat than Seig-
,'ri.td did, hut wero otherwise moderate enters. The food provided for
in ui in my house was always
'tasty,' however, and ray experience
lends me to place more value on the
llavor than on the technical composition of food.
"A fourth and very interesting example is furnished by the protession-
i! athlete Petrus Dnreuther, whose
■n.iisurenicnts, taken September 22nd
1910, before exercise, are given below: Height 5 feet 7J inches, weight.
