Crrrrvrrmw Te4'te St. Patrick's Day.Story, btrt Doubts if It is a W-ew Prince Rupert Townsite Will Soon Be on the Real Estate Market Montreal, March Wainwright, vice president of the Grand Trunk Pacific has arrived home from the West, states that all rangements regarding the site of Prince Rupert have been satisfactori- ly arranged. He states that if nothing gopj? amiss the town will be ready with- in twelve months to open its arms to settlers. The town site will be cut up before that date, a contract hav- ing been let to clear two thousand acres by the coming autumn, all of which will be put on the market at that time. Mr. Wainwright states that there will be no favoritism. Everyone who wants lots will get in on the ground floor. The details of price and ar- rangement of sale have not, however, yet heen arranged. The plans are now being worked out by two Boston landscape gardners, and Mr. Wain- wright promises that that one shall be a model. .New. York, March a rather good St. Patrick's Day said John D.

I think, sir, you're Irish." "Faith, you're telling the truth, j the Irishman said.

D., March A. Leitch of this-place has invented a. grain shocking niachine, which, if his claims axe correct, will save the farmers immense sums. The invention consists of a small machine that can be attached to any binder. It takes the bundles as they fall, from the binder and carries them in an upright position to a table. This fable rotates step by step and builds the shock in much the same manner as it would be built by hand. It- makes two complete revolutions and then, by an ingenious device is part- ed in the middle and the shock is dropped to the ground. C!

FAMOUS THEATRE BURNED other inventors along the same lines, but have been unsuccessful because the shock fell forward with the mo- mentum of the machine. In this ma- chine it is overcome by a simple de- vice. A steel ring is held in position on the outside of the shock and drops with the shock and holds it together until it is deposited on the ground, when it swings forward into position again and is ready for the next shock. The machine has been put under tests and has been very successful, both in building and in placing the shock. At one test the machine was driven at a trot and even at that gait it placed the shock in a perfect man- ner. The inventor says tlie cost of this machine will hardly be more than the hiring of help to do the shocking on 300 to 400 acres of grain. JOHN MORLEY HOPEFUL Of Settling the Trouble Canada Has with Hindus London. March poor ac- coustic properties of the House of Commons are responsible for the uni- versal misapprehension regarding the statement made yesterday by John Calgary, March Tory, pres- ident of the University of Alberta, is in the city, conferring with Mr'. Jus- tice Stuart, the chancellor of the University, on questions which will be brought before the Senate, the first meeting of. which will be held at Stratheona next Monday. A Herald reporter asked Dr. Tory, with some diffidence, how he expMri- ed the results of the senate elections, which had not included among those chosen a Calgary candidate. The president was very frank in admitting that the result might rea- sonably cause dissatisfaction, here un- less the causes were known. He was definite in stating, however, that it was not due to any localizing or votes on the ballots cast. were slightly over 300 votes he said, "and there were about sixty names voted for, so you can see that the vote "was thinly spread. An analysis of the votes shows that the Edmonton graduates, almost with- out exception, included one or more Calgary names in their ballots, while the Calgary men did the same by them. There were, however, more names in nomination from here than from Edmonton, and the result was that the Edmonton candidates indi- vidually .-received more votes. Some of the northern men' in fact, were ekcted by the preponderance of the Southern votes they received. On account of the great number of can- didates the vote was "criss-crossed" and the result was so accidental that it could not be foretold until the last votes were counted." "How about the "The government chose one busi- ness man in Edmonton, one in Cal- gary, aad one between the two places.

CHINA WANTS FLEET TOO Washington, March through Minister Wu, its diplomatic representative in Washington has ex- tended a cordial invitation for the United States battleship fleet to stop in China on its way round the world. and he cu. ins sLzoi as preparing the rest.. Under the circumstances, a sane op- position would have been con- tent with holding back some of the teems in his departmental estimates with the understanding that they could discuss the whole matter on. these items when all the information, was at haud. But, instead of that, they plunged into a trial of endurance. l They re- fused to pass a single item, of the department under fire. They demand- ed that the majority make a most humiliating: and unreasonable concession to the minority, on pain of net being- allow- ed to do business. Any government composed of human beings, would take up such a challenge. It would speak little for" its back-bone if it did not. The result was -that the opposi tion kept parliament sitting at great- J cost to the country through three weary aud empty days while they protested against a minister who could ndt turn out information fast- er than his- clerks could work.' Obstruction, is the heaviest piece of siege artillery available to "the op- position. It is, moreover, a gun which can very easily blow itself ta pieces. At Westminster, it has blown lisBif to pieces; and parliament. At Washington, the .very pieces have been buried out .of sight, and the minority lies-'helpless at the feet "of the majority. Tie opposition should think of-this be- fore it runs out its hundred-ton can- non to brush away a fly. If the min- ister positively refused information, then the situation Vould be changed. If the information, vrhen. it comes down, reveals scandalous .wasteful- ness or worse, then -we shall expect the opposition to make the" most of it. But it will only weaken its pow- er to attract public attention to- great wrongs if it insists upon flagg- ing the fast express of parliament ev- ery time It wants to ask a mail clerk why a letter has beea delaved.
