the difference in price is considerable.
It is difficult to know just what to do

Cominirsloner Graves suggested
that if the local firm would be willing to build the hydrants on specifications to he furnished which would Insure the better hydrant, it might be

Winnipeg, Aug. 4.���W. P. Archibald
Is iu the city, having just completed
his annual Inspection of federal penitentiaries. He Is enthusiastic about
the way in which good work is being
done by the parole system, ll haa
been in force fourteen years, having
been Inaugurated by Hon. David Mills
und ils work of regeneration has succeeded beyond the wildest expectations.
The idea of the system, said Mr.
Archibald, la to give ln the main, first
offenders a chance to make good.
Men whose cases are thought worthy of consideration are allowed their
freedom, after serving but part of
their sentence and are expected tc
report monthly -sit tho nearest policu
headquarters,
Since the establishment of the sys-
in !i4'.if> men have been paroled, and
of this number but 167 have return-
ed to the. prison to complete thei;
term for further wrongdoing. Ths
system is a financial benefit to the
country as well, added Mr. Archibald,
in that purolled prisoners maintain
themselves, whereas the cost of maintenance In a federal penitentiary
means  heavy  expenditure.
The long sought for solution of the
difficulty whereby the wife and children of a criminal first offender or
otherwise, will be in some measure
supported by the husband and father
while he is In jail, has at Inst been
discovered. Mr. Archibald states that
a scheme whereby the wives and families of lhe imprisoned men shall be
given a per centage of tbe earnings
of the prisoners while they are in the
penitentiary, is under consideration.
In order to do this it will be necessary to establish industrial plants at
the prisons.

Four   Persons   Have   Narrow   Escape 1 Alberta Conservatives Hold Caucus in
From Death In Rideau
Canal.
Moooe Jaw, Aug 4.-After waiting
months In anticipation of tbe establishment of what would have been, if
arrangements hae been faithfully carried out. Moose Jaw's largest industry, the city is now bewailing the
fact that the Phoenix Gas Tractor
company, ot Eau Claire, Wis,, have
decided to gn to Kansas City,
Much local rivalry was shown In
getting this company to promise to
come to Moose Jaw. between the
council and the board of trade, the
former contending that they hud got
the industry without the assistance
of Industrial Commissioner Brown,
and the council had no hesitation In
offering the company ten lois In one
block and two whole blocks adjoining
conditionally on the company erecting a fire proof building 80 x 160 feet
by  July,  lt.14.
Two aldermen were deputed to visit
the plant and they came back with
glowing accounts of the fine Industry Moose Jaw was about to get.
Now it Is alleged lhat ihe city bad
a practical demonstration with the
tractor which was to be manufactured here and that the demonstration
proved a dismal failure. Not only
could it only move four cf the fourteen plows that were set. but when
hitched to 11 sit cf disc harrows it
reared high into the air. The aldermen have now nothing to say on the
matter.
DENIES WHOLESALE
DISMISSAL STORY
Saskatoon, Aug. 4. -That It will be ]
necessary   lo   submit   to   the   people
the  appropriation  bylaw  for an addl- 1
tional $311,000 for the erection  of the
25th   streot   bridge   ia   the   assertion
made by City Clerk Leslie.    The orl-;
ginal  bylaw  carried  an  appropriation
of btlt (100,000 und the letting of iho
contract to tlle R. J. Leckle company
for  $31)8,000  will necessitate an additional appropriation of nearly $33,000
in  order  to  defray  the  city's  share
of   the  expense.    Two   thirds  of  the
eost of the Btrueture will be paid by
the  government.
During the conference held in Regina several matters pertaining to the
proposed Btrueture were discussed
and settled. Three tenders were received as follows: It. J. I.ecky company, $398,000; T. J. Robertson, $0m.-
000;  und  Parson  Bros.. $837,000.
No reason was given for the wide
difference In Ihe prices submitted by
tiie different contractor, and as tbe
R. J. I.ecky company is considered
one of the most reliable and their
price waa the lowest they were awarded the contract.
Following the awarding of the contracl, representatives of the I.ecky
compauy declared that work would
be started this week. For the first
few weeks a small crew of men will
be employed on preliminary work,
but after the hridge is well under
way 11 erew of one Ilundred and fifty
men will be employed.
The new structure will be erected
on the unit system, a fixed price being paid per cubic yard for excavation and concrete work. This system
is in general use with most of tlle
railroad companies.
Ottawn, Aug. 4- Four persons had
narrow escapes from death or at leas'
Berlo.iB jury on the Rldi uu cunal about 1
nine o'clock one night 11 week ago,'
when the engine of "Boh" Cameron's
motor boat backfired and went up In
flames.
Cameron plueklly stuck to his post.,
running the burning launch to tin 1
Driveway shore, where spectators res- j
cued the imperilled party an.l dually
extinguished tho Haines after more j
than M..0 damage had been dune tithe boat and engine,
Mi Cameron, Bert Hall and tv
youns ladles left Patterson's boat
liouse shortly before nine o'clock in
the big launch, which was apparently
in perfect running order. Cameron is
���an ixpert mound launches and engines, and when he left the float was
satisfied that everything was all
right. Ahout opposite Pattersons
Creek, the engine backfired and th*
flames were shooting high into the air.
The young ladles screamed, and wou'l
undoubtedly have jumped Into Un
water bad not their companions kept
icoel ana prevented them from doing
j so.
1 Other craft on the canal kept [heir
distance, fearing an explosion, which
would possibly have meant death to
the occupants of the boat. This did not
occur, however, and Cameron stuck
with the engine and ran the boat at
;top speed to tlle shore, receiving serious burns to his hands and anus.

Ottawa. Aug. 4.--Hundreds of Am-
erlcan tourists intending to visit Ottawa in the course of their itinery
turn back at Ogdensbtirg and other
points along the border in their motor cars every week on account of the
reports they receive about the bad
roads leading to the capital
ThiB   was   the   statement   made   by
an Ottawa gentleman who frequently
tours   through   the   surrounding  di /
trlct in his car, and who is an ardent
'advocate of good  roads.
"If there were a gocd highway from
Ottawa to Prescott. Ottawa would  be
full of tourists from the Culled States
������every day." he said.    "These tourlBts
spend their money liberally, and pro-
ibably   this   City   loses   In   one   season
.enough money to pay the cost of con
structlng a good road to the border
Many  farmers  have  an   antipathy   to
motor  cars,  but  if  they   would  unite
with    automobile    associations,    the
1 movement for good roads in eastern
'. Ontario would be greatly facilitated
If we get an Ottawa man appoint'-1

Kdmonton, Aug. 4. Seven hundred
and fifty-one live foxes, valued at
more than $60,000, have been trapped
or dug out of their nests ln the fur districts north of Kdmonton since the beginning of the season.
The highest price paid for a pair ol
hlack foxes is (20,000. The animals
were bought by C, J. Fleming of St.
John, N. It., from a half breed Indian
trapper at I-ac la Dice T. .1 Mc.Mann

fox whelps, all color:-, for $26,000 to
Mr. James A. Kane of Hrooklyn. N

and Pennsylvania.
The   exportation   of   live   foxes   has
become so active in northern Alberta
that Hi-njamln Law-ton, chief game
guardian, has been requested by the
provincial government to recommend
a closed seaaon. the same as there is
for other fur-bearing animals. This
new law would prohibit the capture n'
foxes and whelps during the breed-
lng season.

Captain p. C. Turner. D.S.O., will
be in charge of D. sipiadron, as it
will be called, of which the Eburne
troop will  be a  unit.
.lust as soon as a lull troop Is secured, a drill instructor will be sent
to Kburne to instruct the new troop
In cavalry work. Saddlery, arms and
uniforms will be supplied by the department as soon as the full compliment have signed up.

"I want my $9 hack," responded
Masher in a deep bass voice. "This
tailor agreed to make a suit for me.
When 1 tried on the trousers they
were so wide that 1 looked like a

"Believe me, he starved himself."
Interrupted Isaac. "That's why the

"I have a witness to prove that tbe

"I'm a prisoner in thia chair." cried
Wilson,    "Please  release  me."
Court attendants ami cops went to

at the fat man bv the arms, and af

released him. Wilson gave bis l-sti

company laid before the premier, attorney general and finance minister
this morning the formal proposal of
lhe board that the provincial government assume control of the Second
Narrows bridge project and build the
proposed structure. Although, of
course, nu definite answer to Buch an
important question was forthcoming
at the conference, the trend of Sir
Richard Mcllride's remarks Intimated
that the province might take over the
inter-municipal enterprise, but would i
probably construct a less expensive
bridge than the one planned by Sir
John  Wolfe  Harry  and  associates.
The financial status of the com-1
pany at the present time was explained by K. Carter-Cotton, president, and both the premier and the
attorney general evinced keen interest in the project. The latter stated
that the government recognized the
importance of the bridge, but referred to the fact that a

Sir Richard McBride compared the
bridge over the Kraser at New Westminster with the one proposed for
the Second Narrows, pointing out that
a large amount of traffic was being
handled on the Fraser river bridge
and more would probably be cared
for when the other railways, among
them the North I'acilic. probably
