In occupying the tore- most position in the Pominion as Its First Minister, the inost welcome to the new Prime Minister must have been thoso he received on bis visiting the scenes ot his early nlbnhood. The visit to Portage La Prairie may ha fiaid to be in the nature of a home coming, though it was not the place where ho was horn.

Provincial Report EDMONTON, July condi- tions in Alberla continue to improve. For some days previous to the report of July loth' and for one week follow- ing very warm weather prevailed over the of the province. This was highly beneficial In view of the heavy rains ot spring and late seed- ing. The crop made very rapid pro- gress during .this warm spell. Three weeks of hot'weather began to tell on barley crops and held back late oats but tho dry weather was relieved prac- tically all over the province on July 21st by rain varying from over hair an inch to an inch and a half. Follow- ing this there have been good showers ed tlie region of Oslrulcusk, which is ouly Cli mile? from Warsaw.

The situation with respect to the various grain crops is now good. Wheat was not held back by Ihe pro- tracted heat spell and is. in head every place and cutting will begin in three weeks.
