The Dominion Marine and Fiftber-ies committee has decided to continue tile lobster season as at present, abolishing the size limit, except for St. .John and Charlotte Conty, N. B. Some doubts having been e.xpresesd to the Herald in regard to the published-decision in the Kipp townsltc case, enquiries have been made into the matter. James H. Watson, postmaster at Prairie View, wrote Secretary Cart-wriglit, of the Board of Railroad Commissioners, and received a reply, dated April 20, to the effect that Mr. Hannan's application to the board for an order directing the C. 1*. It. to provide, construct and maintain a suitable station and siding on the southwest quarter of Section 2U, townsiilp !l, range 22, liad been dismissed by the board. H. Grant Hannan and \V. c. Ives, his solicitor, were both seen In regard to it. Mr. Cartwrlghts letter is quite correct, they Bald. Mr. Hannan made two distinct applications. The first asked tbe railroad commission to rescind the oi-der made last September, allowing tjie C. P. H. to change tlie site of the station and sidings of Kipp from the S.W. quarter of Sec. 29 to th,- .tjcation tliey are now on. This means that the C. P. It. has got to take its stati."" -lii' Biding away from tlie present location and unless it can secure an order from the commission allowing It to place them else wliere, it must place them upon the S.W. quarter of Section 2!l, the orig-j inal location planned. In view of the deci-slon, it is e.\-treinely unlikely that the commission will give the company permission to place tliem elsewliere or that the com- ! pany will find sufficient e.vcuse to ! apply for permission. As a^iatter j of fact, said Mr. Ives, when we sec- i ured l)ie first order we did not care ; whether we got tbe second or not.

L WILSON Phone 585 Lethbridge quently received most important dis-paitches. One ot the most interesting of the documents is from Admiral Rodney to Lord George Germain, dated December 1780, from St. Lucia. In this Ik: says the war could have been brought to a speedy conclusion lonpc ago, and with honor to Great Britain, had those persons who were entrusted with the command of her fleets and lier armies preferred their own, their King's anil country's honor to lucrative and factious motives. He continues :- Nothing hut the natural aflcction , an Englishman bears o'r ought to l)ear to his King and country irri-' tates my mind when I behold her treasures squandered, her arms inac-i live, and her honor lost, and by the' very men entrusted with the most > important anil honorable confidence of' their Sovereign and his Ministers, I paying not tlie least regard to the [ sulTerings of their country, but re-lard (ing) the completion and extinction of the rebellion to make .the fot-ti.nes of a long train of leeches, who Slicked the blood of the State, and' whoso interest prompts them to| mote the continuance of the war . . . ! and by every means in their power j continue to discountenance every act- I ive measure, and instead of having j an idea of speedily concluding this i unhappy war, their common discourse j urns upon what may occur in the j two or tlirce ensu ng campaigns. j 1 Evidently there was thought atone; 'time in England of trying to bribe I 'Washington with a dukedoni, for in a long paper by Sir .John Dalrymplr, | "Thoughts on Instructions to tlie; American Commissioners," dit'-d ; 1778, he stales :- ! i From all accounts of fTcneral Washington's character, there is a '-escm-blance between his character and i General Monk's, for he is .>.ilcn'i;, keeps his mind to himself, has plain understanding and is a man of prin-| ; eiple. . . .

MKircj;oi' Ii)i|M)rls j;TCcrt Aiiiiiials  A shipment of eight Aberdeen Angus cows and heifers is now on its way from Scotland to Alberta, the like of which has not been imported by any Individual admirer of the breed in the past of the Canadian west. Mr. Jas. O. McGregor is an enthusiast on the subject of "the blacks" and while he lias established a high record for breeding on his own farms at Brandon and Medicine Hat, he believes in constantly adding to the ll�t of his Imported animals when something desirable is to be had. The North British Agriculturalist of April 7 has the following to say of the shipment:- "A valuable consignment of Aberdeen Angus cattle has just been got together by Mr. Geo. Sinclair, Dal-meny, for that enthusiastic Canadian supporter of the breed, Mr. James D. McGregor, Medicine Hat. Alberta. There are eight animals in the consignment, which from their breeding and individual merit constitutes one of 'the best lots of Aberdeen-Angus cattle that .has been exported for some time. Violet Third to be mentioned is the grand eow Violet 3rd of Congash, bred by Mr. .John M'Alnsh, and which won first honors at the Highland show at Stirling last year. Violet 3rd has at foot a very nice bull calf by the Lady Ida bull Iddesllgh. Then there is the two two-year-old heifer Our Pretty Rose, one of rhe nicest heifers of the breed, shown for some time, by that grand breeding bull. Prince of Ake. Our Pretty Rose was, it will be remembered, champion of the Inverness Fat Stock Show as a yearling. She is a beauMfully-tnrned heifer, and at Inverness last year was considered a better one at the age than the CuUen House champion of 1908. Her Majesty oth of Cullen, another excellent heifer from C.uilen House, and is half sister to pretty Rose. 'I'his one beat Pretty Rose at some of the Northern shows last year and much is expected of her in Canada.
