The  peeresses are to have i!80  seats  allotted "them, as against 288 allotted the peers a rather anomalous distribution.      Ambassadors  aiid   their   wives   are   to   have  twenty seats, in lieu of forty  on  the  last occasion.     The judges  are cut down to twenty seats ��� on  the floor of the house. The south'  east and west galleries have been  assigned  to  persons  nominated  by .the   King,   Queen  and royal  family,   to  the  members of the  diplomatic corps not accomodated  below,   to wives  of cabinet  ministers and high officials.  The  two boxes, or pews,   at the bar  will be assigned respectively  to  Black Rod and  to  peers'  eldest  sons.    (In case there is not room  for all  the  peers  to be seated,  there will _ be-ample standing accommodation'least a score  near  the steps   of   the throne.'  The members of  the" house  of  commons have  little cause  for  complaint, as they will have the  bar, their own gallery,   and   the  strangers'  gallery ,at  their disposal.       The   speaker   of   the  house  of commons   has usually  sloocl on a raised step at the bar,  but  this  is   to  be removed, and  Mr. Gully will be let  down  and  brought on  a plane  with   other  members     of     the     house     of  commons.     --Tlie   royal   gallery  will be used by holders of tickets  which have been  distributed  to  members of both  houses proportionately, and  this   will   accommodate some five hundred people  who will bo able to view the progress of the royal procession.  It,  is hoped   that such regrettable  scene.-, as took place last  February   in   the   lobbies of the house  of parliament will obviated  by a  larger  proportion   of   members  repairing  to  the  house of lords  before, the speaker is summoned.  nouueed as fine a body of,men as  could be gathered in any country  o The following named recruits  were enrolled for",the Canadian  contingent:  George Gilbert , Phillipps,  rancher, aged , 28.

TENDERED  A  RECEPTION. '  One of the'most enjoyable receptions ever held at Fort Steele  was ^tendered to "Major Howe  and the recruits for the Canadian  contingent"' on .Friday evening  last at the Opera House. Although but a short time was  given to, arrange the programme  it was perfection: there were  speeches, a gramaphbne exhibition and dancing; and an infor-r  mai banquet which was heartily  enjoyed by those present.  Speeches-were made by Messrs  Galbraith. D. McKay Reid. Mr.  Hislop, Dr. Watt and Major  Howe. The speeches were  directly "in touch with the present, condition of affairs existing  in.the Empire.  The musical part of the programme was under the direction  of Mrs. Miller, Mr. and Mrs.  Cann, Mr. Lucas and Mr. L. VV.  Patiuore.'and it i.s largely due to  the efforts of the above that the  reception passed off so well.  If was an occasion long to be  remembered, and the boys now  know that they carry with them  the best wishes of the people of  Fort Steele.  special car which was provided  was handsomely decorated with  flags and a large streamer on  each side of the car read "Fort  Steele Contingent". Mr. Smith  played a slogan on the pipes,  the conductor sliouted "All1  aboard" the boys cheered, and  the train moved' on. amid the  shouts of the assembled multitude.

He was considered   '  next  to Thomas | D'arcy  Magee '  Ihe most eloquent speaker in the  first 0 House  -of    Commons, in  Ottawa.

He held an appointment in Afri-   ,  ca  under   General   Barton  and  rendered   good   to   the  .  cause ,  of   Imperialism.

On February   1,   according  to  official   information  received  in  ' the city Saturday, the first train  ,   over the new branch of the Great  Northern from  .Jennings  north  ^of  the Canadian  boundary  line  and  thence   lo  the Crow's Nest  ,-    coal fields will arrive at Gateway  a   new  station   on the boundary  line,   and  will   iv.tuni   with   tlie  '   first train of coal from the Caua-  dian fields for  distribution  over  the main line of tho Great Northern system.  On the same date Collector  of  .i '  Customs  jCharles    M.  ��Wobster  will .open a sub-customs   port' at  ,' Gateway and  a  post   office will  be  established  there. _ Shortly  after  the  opening  of the ��road  there will be a' vastly  increased  amount   of   the,  Canadian   coal  coming  to   this side of the line  ,an'd it is expected that aho now  customs    port,    will   be '-'one   of  ,   "   goodly revenue-earning power in  the service. '  '���For some time at least.'it is  thought, there will not be any  groat amount of tho Crow's Nest  Pass coal which will find its way  inio central and southern Mon-  ' tana. However, it is well known  that .plans are on loot which,  , when consummated, n\vill��� mean  that the importance of Great  Falls will be vastly increased as  the greatest coal distributing  center of the nortkwesteru  states.  '    At the=present time  the Great  Northern   has  use  for  a   much  larger  amount  of  Crow's -Nest  Pass coal than it has  been able  ^ to get.     On   all   the   mountain  divisions of the road it is "the intention  to   use  it for "passenger  service.     However, after all the  lines and sidings into�� the  Canadian   fields. , to  be controlled by  the Great Northern,   have been  completed ' there will be an output more than sufficient for  the  main-line use on   the mountain  divisions. ,   ,"  , ��� Just as soon ,as the. widening  of the Great .Falls and Canada;  has been completed, , it is semiofficially announced, it is'the intention ��� of the road to send^its  surplus Canadian .coal to Great  Falls for general distribution  over the state.  , -   ... '  It will first be brought to Jennings,'thence east to Shelby and  over the widened guage to Great  Falls for distribution.     In order  to handle  the  product here, it  will mean, it is stated, that   coal  bunkersoof  very   large capacity  ���will have to be erected'and maintained.    In the cities where  the  great Northern road is maintain-  ing   bunkers   they   are   looked  upon as especially advantageous  and on the coast there has  been  every inducement offered, to not  only   the  Great  Northern-,    but  other roads, to  build   at certain  o jppints.    ,.  It is stated that once* Ihe coal  is"here, Great Falls will be the  point.from which the new Bur''  lington will be supplied, as it is  tlie intention to furnish the Canadian coal to all the roads, at  present included'in the ''community of interest" combine,  which have, mountain divisions  to traverse  At the present development of  the Crow's Nest Pass*1 mines not  nearly all the coal needed by the  Great Northern can be furnished  However, just as fast as they  can be worked to a greater  capacity they will be and in the  opinion of those who are'in a  position fo talk it will not be  ��� more, than a year before there  will be many mure train loads of  Canadian coai coining into Great  Falls.���Great Falls Tribune.  i).
