appropriation bill, carrying $129,037,-

only beating him by eight points.
Colflicott and Gordon put on the best
game and the result was in doubt
till Gordon scored the winning shot.
Coldicutt made the hign run of the
evening. 117 points.

DaWSOn, March 22.���The Koyal
Northwest mounted police expedition
1ms arrived, completing the round trip
from Dawson to Kort Alcl'liersou, covering 1,000 miles and carrying Its own
supplies from each cud.
It comprised live men In charge of
Constable Dempster. Tbey broke trail
through deep snow a., the way going
and coming, with snow sIiocb, dragging supplies on five toboggans with
dog teams.
ln no winter before was ever recorded In this region a more prolonged period of low temperature, making
this trip a feat to be compared to a
polar expedition. The time from Dawson to Port McPherson was thirty-
three days, and the return wus made
in twenty-four days. The party was
absent from Dawson eighty days.
The party crossed the Uocky mountains twice, sleeping under the open
sky every night. It connected at McPherson with a police expedition from
Herschel Island, and brought 500 letters, mostly from whalers, missionaries and traders, which are being
mailed from Dawson Immediately. The
mall Is largely tor Seattle and San
Francisco.
was the most favorable,
a certain air of seclusion with close
proximity  to the city  and  was close
enough to water to permit indulgence
In aquatic  sports.    Hesldes  that  the
Central Park people had a larger site
to offer,    lie held that the delegates
sho.ld go with the Hrm idea that the
university should not be situated in
a large city.    What was wanted was
a university community.    Oxford and
Cambridge would not have the influence they have lf the universities did
not dominate  the  city  each  was  in.
(The   Scotch   universities   of  Glasgow
and Edinburgh were overshadowed by
the city and hence did not have the
influence    of    the    others.     Central
Park was still small enough to allow
an academic community to spring up
and if In a few years the city grew
out and around the university the institution would by that time be strong
enough to withstand the influences of
the city.   On the grounds that the site
was accessible,   healthy,  isolated  and
not too large, he would advocate the
placing of the  university  there.    He
had never seen the Deer Lake site.
The Mayor's Stand.
Mayor   Lee  did   not  wish   to   hind
thc delegates down to any one site.
The   committee    wanted to And the
aid
 ^^^^^^^^^^^    or
three hundred acres of land stand in
the way if a suitahle location were
found. "I am going to that committee with the idea that if we can compromise on a site somewhere between
Vancouver and New Westminster we
will do so, but lf Vancouver or any
other community sticks out for any
particular location which will nor he
central, I am for a site on the banks
of the Fraser, one the south side or
on the north side, if a location can be
found."
I    In   response  to  an  Inquiry.  Mayor
Lee stated that he would try and arrange  that  one or more of the ��four
I delegates   to   he   elected   from   the
j alumni   of  the   different   universities
to   the   Lower   Mainland   committee

Paris, .March 22.���Convinced that
there is already an overdose ui government ownership in Fiance, there is
general opposition today to the proposal to take over the French Insurance companies by the Btate, making
the insurance business a government
monopoly and to gobble up the alcohol
trade by the government.
As to the insurance, nobody���except
the insurance meu themeselves���cares
much.   As a matter of fact one rather
hopes the government will make this
a monoply.    All that rankles in this
regard is the principle.    A fellow dislikes any more government ownership
on general principles.    In the states,
if a man allows himself to mutter to
j himself, on a dark night in the tnid-
1 die of a ten-acre lot, that be is thinking of taking out a  little life insurance, the next morning he is rousted
'out of bed by a dozen agents come
'to  "write   him  up.   "And   he doesn't
draw an easy breath until he is "written up" either.   And then he doesn't.
If   tlie   French   goieminent   should
jtake the business over, a man would
call up the department and inform it
that he wishes to take out a policy
for .10,000.   The person who respond-
ed to his telephone call would inform
him that he (the speaker) wasn't the
j proper person to apply to.   He wasn't
ci ui t g sure who was the proper person.
He'd send another man to the phone.
Mr.  Man  would repeat his    request,
more meekly still.    The second chap
would probably bawl him out for disturbing him, saying he knew nothing
of the matter.    He'd nave to talk to
j some one else.    And so on.   After a
��� half day's industrious, diligent effort,
the proper person  would  be  located
'and Mr. Man would be told to make
his application in writing.    The proper forms could be had at any branch
postofflce.    Yes,   Mr.    Mann     would
have to get them himself, or send for
I them.    Did he think the government
was being run for his especial benefit?
And when Mr. Man (who was a
modified Socialist) took llis medical
examination, tho doctor (who was an
appointee of the Radical government)
would tell him be had an ingrown
sty coming on his left eye and couldn't
have any  life insurance.

BIG  HATS  MADE A CRIME.
Delaware Solon Introduces Bill to Get
Even With Offenders.
Annapolis,   Md.,   March   22.���Mary-
hind  lias swung into line with some
of the western  states in the  matter
(of unique legislation.    If a bill in the
Ipossession of Delegate Wittig, of Allegany county becomes a law, the picture hat is doomed.    Mr.  Wittig  ro-
iceivetl  the  bill  from  David  A.  Webb,
'state  attorney  of  Allegany    county. I
Mr. Webb submitted the bill with the ,
following interesting note:
"I enclose a bill to stop women
wearing big bats. I am going to draw
up one later to prevent them from
having big feet, That might help
some."
The new bill classes big hats under the following heads for legislation:
"Crimes and Misdemeanor; disturbance of the public peace."
This bill provides that it shall be a
misdemeanor for any woman lo appear in any public place or upon any
public street in a hat wllich shall exceed 10 inches in diameter. For this
grave offence the woman shall forthwith be hauled before any justice of
the peace, who shall nave power to
assess a fine of not less than $lo and
not more than $100, according to the
size of the hat. And in aggravated
cases, such as the peach-basket, or
the merry widow hat, the punishment
may he not less than thirty days or
not more than three months In jail.
This vengeful solon of Allegany
county also desires to make it a misdemeanor for a woman to wear a hat
of any sort in any theatre, music hall,
lecture room or place of amusement.
Maryland, the state of chivalry, the
home of courtesy towards women.
Why. the smallest turban worn by women now is more than ten inches
in diameter. If the bill becomes a
law the women must, appear in public in hats im larger than the average
derby, and not as wide as the summer hat worn by the men.
Maryland is entitled to a proud
place in the line with Nebraska and
Texas and Colorado and Oregon,
where "freak" legislation has reached
its highest point, to say nothing of
the sovereign state of New Jersey,
where they tried to put through a bill
forcing a saloonkeeper to provide tea
and coffee, and give his bartender a
percentage on all soft drinks, in order
to discourage the sale of hard liquor.
Some of the freak legislation floating about just now is:
In Nebraska���To compel all hotels
to have bed sheets nine feet long,
clean towels, and disinfect all linen
once a season.
In Colorado���To make it a misdemeanor to give or take a tip, excepting only the sleeping-car porter.
In Oregon���To prohibit the wearing
of a hairpin more than nine inches ln
length, anything else to be declared

CANADA   AND   THE   UNITED
STATES.
it is gratifying to learn that there
Is a fair promise <>i a friendly settlement being arrived tit between the
Canadian and the United States governments in regard to the tariff question. The e8trangi ment that has
hitherto existed between Canada and
her immediate neighbor has always
been mat tei' for t egret and tho sooner
this can be pul to an end the better
for both. It was of course absurd
for the United States to protest, that
they were entitled to the same consideration as Great Britain In a matter
of this kind. Such a position was
tiitn .ther tinti nable. Canada is a part,
of the British Empire and litis a perfect right to give any preference she
may think well to the mother country without concern for or consideration of any other nation. And too
she has a perfect right to make just
what arrangements she pleases with
France or Germany, or for that matter with China or .Japan, without, considering how this may please or displease her neighbor on the south.
Now that the L'nited States government has at last come to its senses
and recognized the foolishness of its
having taken offence when tho Britlsn
preference tariff was arranged the
way has been cleared for a friendly
understanding. The advances to this
end which have been made from
Washington are what we should expect from our neighbors. They have
been met by the Dominion government In the spirit in wliich they were
made and negotiations have been proceeding in a most friendly manner
between the President, Karl Grey and
the Hon. W. S. Fielding. The arrangements are not yet sufficiently
advanced for their exact terms to be
made public, but we have a pacific
message from President Taft which
serves to indicate that these are likely to be satisfactory.
The president has sent this message
to the people of Canada: "That my
most sincere desire is that not only
the present unforseen difficulty but
that till other difficulties between
Canada and the United States be settled with justice to both and in a
spirit of friendship and generosity.
.... 1 am hopeful of finding a solution which will have regard for my
judicial responsibilities as president
and also serve trade interests in both
great countries." These expressions
i mender a feeling that the prospect
of an amicable understanding is assured and that for the future the trade
relations of Canada and the United
States will he of a much more intimate character and result in a mutual
extension and expansion of trade between the two countries.
it is perhaps scarcely necessary
to enter upon any speculation as to
what caused the United States government to recognize the error of its
ways and the necessity for a better
basis of trade relations. Briefly, in
this connection, however, it may be
remarked that it was probably the
recent new tariff arrangements made
between this country and Germany,
which followed closely upon the
Franco-Canadian tariff treaty, that
served to awaken our neighbors to
a sense of their absurd position.
In these times, when commerce Is
an international privilege, there is
neither reason nor room for jealousy
of any one country against another.
Moreover, to hinder trade in any direction is a serious thing, bringing
trouble and immeasurable loss in its
train. The principle that the interest
of all commercial countries are mutual must nowadays de recognized, for
this is a potent factor in the prosperity if not in the very existence of
the civilized nations of th�� globe.
Key of Situation Held by Sir
E Casseli, Largest Concession Holder in Empire.
London, March 22.���1 In re is every
indication that 'I'm key is in for a period of extremely Lad times In the
w ry near future.
The central governmenl is weak.
Money is urgently needed and the
treasury is empty. The army's loyalty is uncertain. The disloyalty oi
ti large proportion of the population
is absolutely certain Various elements of the peope also hate one another to the point of actual murder���
wholesale murder. The prospect of in-
ternal disorders is si good that the
Austrian government has officially
notified the Porte of the probable necessity of vigorous foreign intervention in Turkish affairs in the spring.
War with Greece is likely to break
out at any time. Bulgaria is only
awaiting a favorable opportunity to
grab the big Turkish province of La-
cedonla.
There is but one man who undoubtedly can prevent all this trouble.
This is sir Ernest Cassel, probably
the closest personal friend King Edward of England has, and a tolerably
(lose friend, too, of Kaiser Wilhelm,
of Germany. The whole question
hinges on whether Sir Ernest thinks
his interests will he best served by
permitting things to take their course
or by getting promptly to work to
bring order out of chaos.
It rather looks, just now, as if be
had decided upon the former policy.
There are obvious reasons for this decision. Sir Ernest undertook, very-
soon after Abdul llamid granted a
constitution to his people, to make
himself virtual ruler of Turkey. He
had acquired vast interests in the
country, had practically completed
arrangements for the establishment
of a new government bank under his
own complete domination and seemed in a fair way to bave the whole
place completely in bis hands, when
the Turks took a fright at the thoroughness with wllich he was evidently assimilating tbem and decided to
give certain French interests a
look in.
Can't Eliminate French.
Since then Sir Ernest has been
unable to crowd the Frenchman altogether out. Plenty or trouble for the
present, Turkish administration will
certainly do lt, however.
To wage a foreign war or two and
to put down a multiplicity of internal
uprisings the administration will have
to have lots of money. The French
interests are unable to furnish it in
such Quantities as are likely to be
needed. Sir Ernest Cassel can. Hut
he will do it only on his own   terms.
Then again, in the event of serious
trouble in Turkey, Sir Ernest's property interests there will need careful
watching and Sir Ernest is Influential
enought to secure two big governments' assistance���the governments
ot England and Germany���in protecting these interests. It. is uot likely,
indeed, that he will ask for aid trom
both governments. One will be
enough and to ask assistance from
both of them til once would simply
be to invite a clash between them.
Hut by playing one against the other
it is very certain Sir Ernest will get
just such guarantees as he wants.
Whichever country he Invites to bis
aid, having one got into Turkey, will
be extremely unlikely ever to get out
again. For tlie invitation, this country will be under obligations to Sir
Ernest and may be depended on to
defer largely to him in all matters
of policy in its new field. Sir Ernest
will thus secure a stronger hold on
Turkey than ho has ever bad before���
a financial and, through England or
Germany, a physical hold.
To prevent all this trouble Sir Ernest needs only to let the Turkish government have the money lt needs before the trouble starts. Most, if not
all. of the country's difficulties are of
a kind that cash would remove. It.
would also probably be cheaper for
Sir Ernest to set Turkey upon a
sound financial basis now than it will
be for him to do it later. But if he
does it now the Turkish government
will be sure to want, to bargain with
him. if he does it later there will
not be any bargaining. Sir Ernest
will be in a position to take what he
wants without consulting anyone
about It.
So the chances seem to be that
Turkey Is duo for a series' of foreign
wars and violent civil disorders from
which it will almost inevitably emerge
I as :i sort of protectorate���something
like Egypt���either of England of Germany, with Sir Ernest Cassel at the
head of its banking system, its largest individual property owner, the
holder of all its best franchises, tho
dictator of its business affairs tind the
most powerful factor in the shaping
of its governmental policies.

lies in Alberta, this phrase being now   to subdivide a portion of it and place
used in the west with this meaning,   it on the market.
In the year 11)00, ten years ago, there
was no coal mining in The PaBs, and
in 1901 it was being mined at the
iate of one or two cars per day.
"In the past nine years companies
have been organized for mining purposes in the district with a capitalization of $12,000,000. Equipment for mining has been installed at the mines
at a cost of between $7,000,000 and
$8,000,000. In addition, new companies are now being organized or have
been recently formed aud are just beginning operations. These, together
with other industrial enterprises will
bring the capital investment up to
$20,000,000. Among the other Industries of the district to which I refer
is a cement plant, lime burning plants
and kindred industries, such us brick
yards. The cement plant is noted as
one from which cement can be placed
on tbe cars from the factory seventy-
tivo cents a barrel cheaper than from
any  other  plant  in  America.
"The town of Frank has now a population of between fifteen hundred
and two thousand people. It is the
centre of a district eight miles long
and one and one-half miles wide. Each
of the towns of this district has an
electric light and a water system, affording to the residents all modern
conveniences. A project is now under way to connect all the towns with
an electric interurban line. Frank,
which is located in the exact centre
of the area, has the customs house
for the district, and is the only station at which the Soo-Spokane flier
stops. It is the junction point of the
Frank and Grassy Mountain railway
with the Crow's Xess line, and is the
natural distributing point for the district. The population of this area at
the time of the inception of the work
of tbe Canadian-American Coal and
Coke company in 1901 was not a hundred souls and not a dollar was paid
out In wages. The district now has
between 8,000 and 9.000 people and
an average monthly pay roll of $175,-
000. It has as fine schools and
churches as are to be found anywhere
in the Canadian west. It has a perfect long-distance telephone system.
We can talk a thousand miles in any
direction, and have a direct telephone"
wire to the coast. We tire in the closest touch with the greal inland empire of Washington and Idaho, as well
as with Western Canada.
"The conditions of labor In the district are better than I hose in any
similar district on the continent. Butte
is commonly regarded as the Mecca
of the man who has only his labor to
sell, bur men in Hulte do not enjoy
as favorable conditions tis those which
oxist in The Pass. Men there receive
the largest average wage for the
shortest number of hours of any point
on tbe continent. The law of the province forbids any miner to he in the
mino for a longer porlod than eight
hours daily. The actual work done
often does not exceed six hours, the
balance of the time being spent in
reaching tbo coal, from the mouth of
the mine. Day men in the mines receive $3.50 per day. Contract miners
receive from $150 to $250 per month.
No Oriental labor is employed, but
there are representatives of almost
all European nationalities.
"Tbe men have considerable leisure
time and as they are well paid, many
of tbem are improving themselves and
educating themselves by private
study. As an illustration of this I
may state that at a meeting of the
Il'nited Mine Workers of America, dis-
Mayor's   Remonstrance   Has   Effect.

EXPERIMENTS WITH  WIND.
Spojcial Efforts to Convert Air Into
Electricity.
London, March 22.���Successful efforts are now being made to convert
wind into electricity. Quito a huge
farm near Hamburg is being supplied
with electrical energy generated by ]
wind-power threshing machines,
pumps and various farm appliances
being electrically driven, while some
hundreds of incandescent lumps are
lighted In various sheds and houses
on tbe farm.
A large wind turbine is placed at j
the top of a tower, and as this is revolved hy tbe wind it actuates a dy-
i imo,  which  charges accumulators;
consequently the electricity generated by a wind during the night can be I
stored up for tbe following day.    An t
auxiliary oil engine has been installed for times when the wind falls.
This ls not the only plant for generating electricity.    A firm of electri-
'clal   engineers  at   Wlllesden     Green
have for some tme had one running
successfully.    An  Ingenious  arrangement is used by fTTem to check the
vagaries of the wind.   When a strong
wind is blowing, the turbine naturally
revolves quicker than In the case of
a light breezo, hence the dynamo Is
S driven quicker.   Thc voltage or pressure of a dynamo rises In direct pro-
Iportion to Its speed, and a considerable rise  might easily ruin the  accumulators it was charging.   The arrangement  referred  to  automatically
checks   nnd   charges   In   voltage,   so
I that a sudden change in the wind is
Instantly counterbalanced.

You've read all about the coming development of the C. N. R. and B. C. Electric on the
South bank, so why dwell upon it further.
As an old timer said to me this morning:   "There'll be 5000 people across the river
within 18 months."
South Westminster is going to be a North Vancouver over again and here are a few
parcels of acreage which will play a prominent part in the evolution.
55 Acres at $500
This 55 acres is in the south half of Section 29, township 2, and is a dandy for
subdivision purposes. On Chilliwack tram and Sandal roads, superb view and light
clearing,���a piece of land with untold possibilities at $500 an acre.
11 Acres at $650
Eleven acres in Section 21, on Yale, Hjorth and Sandal roads, high, dry and
with a splendid view of the Fraser and the city. Can be subdivided to excellent
advantage.
9 and a half Acres Cleared at $9,500
This piece is in Section 20. The tram runs right through it, all cleared and part
in bearing orchard, Right against South Westminster post office and a store, not
more than 20 minutes walk from the New Westminster city hall. This is eminently
inside stuff and will produce a rental to the man who wants to hold it. One third
cash.
18 Acres at $500
This block faces on the Yale and Hjorth roads in Section 27, and has a house
and barn on the Yale road side. One acre is cleared, the rest is light marketable
timber. Here is one of the chances which stand ready to make a lot of money for
some man on the south shore.   Will bring $1000 an acre before a year.

The design for the Oppenhelmer
memorial which bus been prepared
by A. Campbell Hope, wbo lias recently opened a branch ofiice in thlB
city, was last week submitted to a
meeting held in Vancouver to decide
on a suitable memorial for the hue
Mr, Oppenhelmer. The meeting were
unanimous in its favor, thinking it
more suitable than an arch, which
Had been previously proposed, A farther meeting will be hold at tbe Vancouver board of trade offices tomorrow
and if satisfactory financial aid is
forthcoming tlie city council will be
asked Lo provide a site for it In Stanley park and an amount sufficient for
its upkeep.
The design comprises a large central building with two wings, so arrange;! that they can be built at a
latter date when more funds are
available. The present suggestion is
to construct the central hall at a cost
of about $30,000 to ?40.noo. This wi.l
make a fine and artistic conservatory
of about sixty feet square and fifty
feet high.
Since the last meeting at wbicli it
was proposed the matter has been
well discussed and favorablj commented on by the members of the
board of trade and tlie council and
there is every chance of lt being taken up and started almost Immediately,
A. Campbell Hope, who is a wei;

Yeats   Tells   of   Deaths     From   Drink
and Suicide.
London,  March   21.���W.  B.   Yeats,
the Irish  songster, told a sad  lwtle
|story of tlie dissolution of the coterie
of  poets which  existed  in  London a
few years ago under tlie title of the
Rbymsters'  club,  in   the  course  of  a
lecture  on  contemporary  poetry  this
week.
For the twelve poets who bad formed  the club  Mr.   Yeats calmed  that
j sincerity wllich marks the true artist.
Several  of them  had gained distinction.    Yet of tlie little party two had
since died of drink, a third had committed   suiside,   and   two others   had
1 lost their reason.
|    "A  poet's  life  must  almost  neces-
Isarily   be  troubled,"   said  Mr.  Yeats.
"All songs are those of victories won
in the poet's mind. If you could find
a perfect.y steady nature you would
find a silent one."
POISONED WINE  PLACED
ON THE COMMUNION TABLE
Rome, March 20.���At Villafranca,
near Verona, a priest, while celebrating mass in the crowded parish
Church, feil senseless on the altar
���steps immediately after drinking the
consecrated wine. The congregatoin
ln a state of great excitement and
alarm, rushed to his aid. A doctor
was hastily summoned, and ascertained that the priest had been poisoned. He analyzed the wine and
found that lt contained sulphuric acid.
j Tbe priest was conveyed to a hospital and it is believed that he will
recover.
The case Is surrounded with  mys
tery. The poilce have arrested tlie
three sacristans, but the crime is
ascribed to an anarchist. - At any rate
it is believed that the motive was
political, and that the parisli priest,
who is the leader of the local clerical
party, was the intended victim. He
was to have performed mass, but owing to indisposition his place was
taken by another priest.
Another theory is based on the belief that the alms-boxes had been
broken open, and that burglars poisoned the wine on the orevious night.
PATH OF TRUE LOVE
PROVES THORNY ONE
today and will make a last appeal to
the parisli priest in an effort to be
made man and wife. The priest has
declined to officiate. When the couple
appeared in Gold field yesterday to be
married, they were escort ea ou: of
town by the sheriff.

every clergyman and judge in the city
had refused to perform the wedding

PRESIDENT DENOUNCED
FOR ATTENDING DANCE
Toledo, Ohio, March 21.���Bishop
William M. V.'ee'tly in tlie current
number of the Religions Telescope
scores President Taft for dancing and
says Mr. Taft by attending so many-
dances is degrading the nation.
"Of course, .Mr. Taft wants to appear broad-minded," says the bishop,
"but when his wide notions degrade
the nation to the leve, of the ball
room it Is time to protest. The
churches will experience more trouble
in restraining wayward boys and girls
than ever before."

FIVE CENT PIECE MAY
BE MADE OF NICKEL
Movement Started to Substitute  Pure
Nickel  for Silver���American
Coin   Is   Amalgam.
The elusive little Canadian five cent
piece, the bugbear of United States
visitor.., to Canada, is doomed if many
geologists, metallurgists and mining
men have their way. It is claimed
that the adoption of a nickel coin
worth the same amount of money
would be an improvement. Germany.
France and other European countries
have adopted nickel for coinage purposes, and why not Canada, a country where nickel, as applied to a five
cent piece in coinage vernacular, is
a misnomer when Canadian coins of
that* denomination are referred to.
Canadian five cent pieces do not contain any nickel. United States five
cent pieces are composed of an amalgam of nickel and copper.
Dr. W. G. Miller, Ontario provincial
geologist and ex-president of tlie Canadian mining institute, is an enthusiastic advocate of the superiority of
nickel for coinage j��urposes. In his
presidential address he made the following reference to the matter: "Heretofore the Dominion mint at Ottawa
has been turning out copper and silver coins and British sovereigns. Now
it is to mint Canadian gold as well,
it is to be hoped that ere long Canada
wil. have a pure nickel coin, since
this metal has been used by several
European  countries   for   coinage   and
found to be well adapted for the purposes. The present Canadian nickel
is the smallest coin in the curn nt
coinage. It is also, perhaps, the most
bandied, and its size makes the handling of it extremely awkward, It is
so near the size of a ten eent piece
that it is not an easy matter to dis
tinguish the two, unless by careru.
scrutiny."
"Pure nickel can be stamped now,"
Dr. Miller stated, "and why can we
not use it for coinage? It wears haul
and would be between the size of a
ten and a twenty five ecu: piece, and
thus would be more easily distinguishable. The L'nited States nickel wears
greasy. This is because it is not
pure nickel, but copper and nickel
amalgamated. The pure nickel coins
are superior to the amalgam coins."
Nickel has a value of forty cents a
pound and is not as heavy as silver.
The proportion in weight between tbe
two metals is about the ratio of one
to two. Silver is of great deal more
value, is might be expected, an ounce
being worth forty cents.
The federal government has been
impressed by expert metallurgists and
others with the deslrabilltly of having a real nickel five cent piece coined
in Canada. Nothing has been done
yet, but the discip.es of the "real
nickel nickel" are as enthusiastic as
ever and expect that the question will
be taken up seriously In the near future. Canada produces sixty-five per
cent of the world's supply of nickel;
New Caledonia being the closest competitor of the Dominion. It has been
styled Canada's characteristic metal
and its value is increasing as its usefulness becomes more widespread.
Many reasons are being put forward
favoring its adoption into the Canadian coinage, and business men, as
well as the general masses, favor such
an innovation.
Regina, March 22,���With buildings
of the approximate value of $1,500,-
ooo already contracted for, and other
work such as the parliament buildings, C. i'. R. improvements, the gas
plant and streei railway, and extensive civic undertakings bringing the
figures to well over the three million
dollar mark, considerable apprehension is felt as to tlie labor outlook.
According to local contractors, the
city will shortly be up against the
biggest labor famine ever experienced.
By the middle ot next month, it is
claimed, the city will be in a position
to provide work for more than 2,500
men in excess of tlie present supply,
and of that number 1,000 would be
skilled mechanics, principally carpenters, the remainder being unskilled
laborers. In view of the seriousness
of the outlook, the board of trade has
been asked to take the matter up
with a view of the possibility of relieving tlie situation to some degree,
and it is possible it may take steps
to approach the boards in Winnipeg
and other western cities for tlie purpose of taking concerted action.
Lisbon, March 22,���Terrible snow-
lib have been experienced at Au-
dani and the neighborhood. Great
i ol famished wolves have swarm-
��� i down trom the mountains and invaded the town. A party of horse-
mon arrived at full speed at Audani,
being pursued right into the town by
a pack of over 200 wolves.
The  liileis,  who owed  their  li\es to
the fleetness of their horses, had set
out to tell the town authorities that
the farms, ranches and plantations in
the neighborhood were beseiged by
ferocious animals, and that the inmates were prisoners. Several fanners who bad dared to venture out bad
been devoured.
Nexi day the weather cleared somewhat and the authorities organized a
huge hunt, headed by tbe civil guards
and detachments of infantry and cavalry. Although there was a tremendous slaughter of tlie wolves, many got
away to their mountain homes, an.l it
is feared that they will soon return.
Eighteen of the hunting party received injuries.
Lloydminster Farmers Enthusiastic
Over Plan.
Lloydminster, Alta. March 22.���A
representative of the Altterta government, Mr. Stevens, addressed tlie
Lloydminster branch of the U. P. A.
here on Saturday. lie came to explain the government's proposal for
aiding and equipping the pork-packing plant in Alberta, concerning which
the farmers have talked much during
the past two years.
Mr. Stevens said that the government would require, before taking tlie
nialler up, a guarantee from the tanners of (lie province of an annual supply of at least 50,000 hogs. The funds
(or the plant, would then be provided
by the government as a loan, and the
ownership of the plan would be gradually transferred from the government to the farmers.
That the Lloydminster farmers approve of the plan, was shown by tlie
eagerness with which they signed the
papers guaranteeing a big annual delivery of hogs for tbe plant.

Edmonton, March 22.���A desperate
attempt by several nonvicts in the
penitentiary here to boat down the
guards and escape has just come to
light, despite the efforts of officials
to keep it secret. The attempt took
place a week ago, but was nippe I in
the bud by a Japanese trusty, wbo
gave the alarm in time to save the
situation.
it was evidently a plan which had
been contemplated for seme time, as
the convicts bad liars and other crude
weapons stored in their cells. Early
on Monday morning Convict McQuillan forced an exit from his cell and
beat one guard over the bead. The
guard returned the attack, and both
clinched. Other convicts were breaking from their cells, and what the result would have been is easy to guess
had not the Japanese, trusty at this
moment given the alarm. Guards
hurried in, and the eonvieis were got
under  control.

DIDN'T WANT DAMAGES.
This Youth's Modesty Will Work His
Undoing.
Prince Rupert, March 2l\���A Russian lad, who was given $1,000 damages by Messrs. Foley, Welch &
Stewart for the loss of a foot thinks
that there is no place in British Columbia so attractive as the Prince
Rupert police station.
The money is beitfg held in trust,
while the young man's case is being
disposed of, for as yet the authorities
haven't decided to send him back to
Russia. It is thought that he is a bit
unbalanced. For example, he did not
want to take the money. He was told
that if be wanted to he could put up
at a hotel, but preferred to remain in
the police station.

By keen judges and those seeking sound investments, these lots will
be readily bought. There is a Reason why these lots must increase in
price. Step in and ask us the reason. If you are looking for low priced
land which is not worth half the money you would be willing to pay for
it, don?t waste your time or ours, we cannot afford to handle that class of
property. Every Lot in the bunch we are now offering must double in
value every month for some time to come.
