SIR HECTOR AT CALGARY. it Reply to the Citizens Address of Welcome. Replying to an address of welcome from the citizens of Calgary, Sir Hector Langevin said, ,fter thanking the mayor and council for their kind words, that thia was not his first visit to the town. He had seen Calgary six rj ago, but it was not the Calgary of to- day with ita energetic population, ita hand- some buildings and busy marts, and soon to be c city of large proportions. From what -he had seen ana henrd there i much prosperity in Calgary and le hoped this prosperity would increase. The government might erect public buildings and bridges and provide other >ut if the people dn not put their shoulder to the wheel the money so liberally voted by jarlitunent would be useless. It' was not so n Calgary, as he had evidence on every side, inferring to the fine harvest and crops in this section, he said he had witnessed the game in Manitoba, the Northwest and British Columbia. Providence had treat- ed as as spoiled children, so gener- ously have ita bounties boxn scattered n every part of the country. We should be thankful to God for all this. Of hit, prestnt nsit to the Northwest he might say that it was made for two reasons hrst, bis medical adviser had assured him that rest fiom work :or s. timo was absolutely necessary that the nine Lad come after so many years of over work to stive the machine a needed rest; and le was happy to fay he was benefitted by ;he trip. A second reason was that he wished to see again the Northwest and Manitoba after six years absence. When laot in this section of the country the Canadian Pacific was built only to Otter- ail creek in British Columbia. The people as now found all happy and prosperous. In British Columbia (which he had uot Been for iwenty years) he found the true Canadian onion spirit, so very different from the time when they spoke of Canada as a separate country and ita people as not a part of them- selves. -Now, through their changed feelings and the construction of the Canadian Pacific railway, we were one country from the Atlantic to the Pacific, owning the same Queen, and though we are sprung from differ- ent races and speak different languages and have differing religions, we have a bond of onion in -our common allegiance and are a thoroughly united people. We may differ in regard to the men who govern us; these are trifling matters, when we are united on the essential points. In .conclusion Sir Hector said that the people might rely upon Mm as a friend of the Northwest and especially of Cal- gary, and he had shown his friendship for the town in the past. He was but one member of the Government, but he would be always glad to do what he could to promote the progresb and prosperity of Calgary. Sir Hector's remarks were received with applause, and soon after the delegation retir- ed well pleased with the cordiality of their reception. Thursday morning Sir Hector left for Rs- gina, arriving there at midnight. On Friday morning be left for Prince Albert returning to Regina on Saturday night and learinf lor Winnipeg.and on Sunday morning. BURCHELL'S BAD BOX. TRUE BILL FOR MURDER IN TH SURCHELL CASE. The Trial to Commence or Honda Glimpse of the Prli Meeting Be twee Husband and Wife. WOODSTOCK, Sept. grand jur this afternoon rendered a true bill against Reginald Burchell for the murder of Freder ick C. Benwell. Arrangements have bee completed between the counsel on either sidi unless something extraordinary happens be tween now and ten o'clock ou Monday mon ing, that the cane be taken up. The Fre Press reporter this afternoon was permittee to take a look through the jafl, around whic so much interest seems to centre now. You reporter caught a glimpse of Burchell as he was passing down stairs with the turnkey t enjoy a half hour's exercise in the yard. Th prisoner wore a block suit of clothes, bod a clean shave and was enjoying his after dinner smoke as he sauntera through the hall. Around his neck was a loosely tied red handkerchief while he wore a stiff black Christy of the latest style. He took a glance at the reporter as he went ou and iu the yard chatted as freely a. allet girls in light cloches and other figures and sketches that show the prisoner to be quitb an artist. Burchell's wifo did mot call to see him to day, but his siater in law, Mrs. Vest Jones, brought him up some fruit and pent half an hour in his cell. Mrs. Burchell a fast failing in health. She has borne up to he day of the trill under a great physical ffort, and now that her husband is about to >e put upou trial for the murder, she is sub- ect to hysterical fits of crying which leave ler almost prostrate. The following appears n the local papers, and is given for what it is vortb: "On Wednesday night Mrs. Bur- hell retired feeling perhaps more despondent ban ever. She nad a strange presentiment hat unless she saw her husband that night, he would never see him again alive. She at once got up, and dressing herself, went to the ;aol, where, after many pieadingo, as only a wile can realize, she was permitted to see her husband. The meeting between he two is aaid to have been, most effective and hey embraced each other for gome minutes, while husband and wife- wept like children and the goal officials who stood by were, like- wise moved to tears and were glad when the cene was over. The truth involved in- this tory is doubtful, except as it shows devotion o her husband and her fervent desire for his velfare. A Good-Bye Bail. QUEBEC, Sept. afternoon a large gathering of ladies and gsntleinen went aboard H. M. ship Bellerophon, where a ance was given by Vice-Admiral Watson.

Proceeding) O'Brien and Dillon be De- fective. LONDON, Sept. study of the warrant upon which Dillon and O'Brien were wrested shows that it fails to specify with any partic- ularity the offences for which the attests were ordered. The document is verbose and clumsy in style and manner. Mr. Healy believes that it is fatally defective and that if the accused are granted an appeal they will be able to have the proceedings quashed. Sir Charles Russell the eminent barriater, apparently takes the same view.for in a speech at Darlington last night he referred to the shadowy nature of the charges, and said that wnts had been set aside in the past. Thin being so. he aslced why might not a like fate await the present The rais- ing of this question by lawyers of repute has caused some uneasiness among the Conserva- tives. The Globe, for instance, expresses the hope that a step so certain to concentrate attention upon Irish affairs and to rekindle the names of passioj which were gradually expiring, has not been taken without ample legal evidence as a basis. A blunder in a matter of this importance would have deplorable results. OUR CAPITAL BUDGET. Appointments in To-Day's T. A. Cairns Nominated for Post Office Inspector. A TMffiLEACCIDENT.
