Taft, it appears,  fired one shot from a .38-calihre revolver at the larborer's heart. The  bullet failed'to take effect; and, as  "Big.Julia" turned and ran Taft fired  at the abdomen, killing the man instantly.

Martin Burrell *  Not us much is heard of or  is known of the agricultural department at Ottawa, as should be, says  the Hamilton ' Spectator.- After all  is said and done, it is one ofthe.  most important branches of the  government, for agriculture is Canada's basic industry'and the progress  and prosperity of the Dominion depends upon the progress and prosperity ofthe farmer. Hon. Martin  Biirrell, the minister of agriculture  is a poor advertiser. ' He is a;  modest man,'too modest, some say,  for a politician. He "'works night  and day and talks little.  Since.he came into office, he has  worked many reforms, looking towards the advancement of a'gricul-'  ture. He" has initiated'" many  schemes for the betterment of the  farming industry. He found a department which was'in a nit.' There  'was no other department at Ottawa  where the 'whole service was so  plainly marking time. The agriculture department has many experts,  yet initiative was discouraged and  dry rot seemed to have set in.    '  ' -  Mr. Burrell has awakened lip'the  department, he has infused a new  spirit in every branch of the service  and has succeeded iu inculcating his  own energy and enterprise into the  department.  - 1-1 on.

The' consequence   was  that the department was loaded up  with woik which had nothing in the  world to do with agriculture.     Census   and    statistics  came  under the  administration ��� of   the   'minister    of  agiicuItiire*'cop3*i-ights and patents;  the   archives,   public   health,.and   a  half   dozen   "other    branches    were  stowed in this department.  The   first   thing   Mr.   Burrell   did!  .        I  was   to   re-arrange   these   services. ;  The census and statistics branch  was tiansfetTed to the department  of trade rind commerce where it  more properly belonged. The archives branch natuially fits in with  the work of the secretary ol' slate  and was transferred lo.fhal department. Talents and -copyrights will  likely be transferred, tins session to  the department -ot' state, and the  public-health branch w.ii'r also1 likely,  be taken '-from the department' of  agriculture.  The most important question Mr.  Burrell undertook .on assuming  office was to formulate a general  policy for the betterment of agricultural conditions in Canada. It was  felt, however, that nothing in this  direction- could properly be done  until a general survey of the agricultural conditions in Canada had  been made. It was therefore decided to give immediate assistance  to'a'gricult.ure-by voting the sum of  $500,000 to this oause by way of  grant-to the provincial governments  on a population basis. Such grant  to be expended for the cause of  agriculture according to a plan approved by the minister of agriculture at Ottawa. The following figures shows how much each province  receives: Ontario, $175,733.31; Quebec, $139,482.40; Nova Scotia,  $34,288.45; New Brunswick, $25,-  509.93; Prince Edward- Island,  $6529.S5; British Columbia, $27,-  334.76; Man., $31,730.04; Sask.,  $34,296.29; Alberta, $26,094.90.  If the new policy was to be broad  in its scope and wide in its usefulness, it w.'i1* necessary that ii !v  based   upon     accurals     infonnatii u  Dr. C. J. James, deputy mfrfisUer of  agriculture forlyears in Ontario, as  commiisioner to make a thorough  investigation and make recommendations and ��� suggestions for the  consideration ' of the government.  Mr. James has been' devoting all  spring and summer to his inquiry,  and liis leport is now nearly ready  and w,ill be presented to Lhe house  this season.  Particulat attention,has also been  paid by the minister to experimental farm work. At the Central Experimental farm -at Ottawa, the  work was strengthened by the  addition to the staff of a field husbandman, an animal husbandman,  and an agriculturalist. A specialist  was also .appointed to take chaige  of forage plant work..-       <���  Some additional 'work will be  done along-the line of investigating  horse breeding and the feeding of  steers with a view of giving, information as lo tbe relative value of  the different breeds of cattle, and of  feeding in profitable, beef production.  Small herds of Holsteins and Jerseys  have also been added to the, list of  breeds maintained so that_represen.  tatives of all the better known.dairy  breeds of cattle kept in Canada are  now to be found at the^Central Experimental farm.  >- By-these additions to the'staffs,  it is hoped that valuable work will  be done along all lines of agriculture of interest and ' value .to the  farmer generally. "It was. found  that the work of the experimental  farms.had in many .cases .in/ecent  years been somewhat -neglected.  Barns and property had been-allow-  ed to. get out of repair, and the  work ofthe farmers had- been' hampered by lack of facilities.'' The  farms were in many" cases not of  my vital value to agriculturists,-and  particularly to local farmers to!  whom they should be, an inspiration.  For example, it was found that!  there was an experimental farm at  Lacombe, in   the  heart of the cattle  * i  country.     Yet for  lack of facilities,'  and through   the  small   area  of the,  farm,   live    stock    was   practically'!  neglected.

It is   confidently expected  lhat the work   dune   at" this farm in  fruit   growing   and   other   branches  of agriculture will be of the greatest  possible benefit    to' lhe   people, not  only in the Annapolis and Cornwallis  valleys,   but   in   tlie   othei   districts  where     fruit    growing     i-* -not  specialty.

Among  his proposals will be a request for  the early installation of wireless  telegraphy, and an automobile road  from Dawson to White Horse.  The doctor .states that the Yukon  mined five million dollars worth of  gold last year, and expects a much  larger yield next year. "Yukon is  now turning its attention to quartz  mining, which is a comparatively  new innovation for the north country,", says Dr. Thompson. "We  need a big development company,  and we expect to get such a company next year. We have already  two of the biggest companies in the  world of mining."  To Editor, Phoenix Pioneer.  Dear Sir,���  Kindly allow me a  small space in  your paper  in order   to  lay   before  your  readers   a  few   simple   facts  in   connection   with   the   new   road  and   the   Hartford    Hotel.       Some  time last  Spring  our  indefatigable  road supt.   made  his  appearance in  the   burg  loaded   down   with   blue  prints  and   held a meeting on   the  q.t. for   the  purpose   of finding out  the sentiment of the people with regard to the  proposed change in the  route   of    the   Grand    Forks   and  Phoenix   wagon   road.       To  begin  with, the previous  survey was done  by F. M.   Kurdy,   a  gentleman   acquainted with the needs   of this district and familiar with   the country.  Mr.   Kerby's  survey, however, was  not to the liking of those higher up,  who appear to   attach  more importance   to the trans-provincial  highway,   which   passes    up   Fourth  of  July  creek   to  Summit  camp,  and  meets   the   Greenwood   road,    but  benefits no one, and positively hurts  all those  living   along the old road  and  previous  survey.     Now   1  understand that   the  recommendation  for  the    change   of  survey   which  were made at the  "public meeting"  are not  satisfactory, but   of course  it is  too  late now   to  be   rectified.  The Hartford hotel  is one property  to  suffer  by   these   star   chamber  methods,    the  government  having  arbitrarily cancelled   its license, al-  thongh   in   equipment   and   accommodation it  complies   with  all  the  strict requirements   of  the  law and  has been   in  existence  since   1899.1  The reason given for cancelling the  license   was  to the   effect  that the  new  road  had   robbed the  hotel of  its usefulness, and   this   in  the face  of the fact that some thousands have  been   expended    on   the   property.  Now considering that I have been a  resident of Phoenix for the past 16  years the authorities might have deferred action until the new road was  completed, which as the song says,  "may be for years   or it may be for  aye."

Favorable reports   from   the   recent  strike in the Society mine   at Moyie  are being received.  A promising shoot of shipping  ore has been struck' in the old workings of the Crown mine, at Ains-  \Vorth, which is under operation by  the Crown Mines company, a Spokane corporation. The ore was  reached in the old tunnel at a distance of 150 feet from the porta  and this tunnel luu. been driven for  an   additional   100   feet.
