It was decided that the present buildings are sufficient to accommo- date the exhibits this year. Gco, Houk stated that he was au- thorized by the citizens who are do- 'nating the "services of the Citizens Band to inform the Society that th proposition would be withdrawn if the two bands attended. These citi- zens made the proposition thinking the society wished to economize However they wished it understood that one band only should attend. A member of the Society stated that some of the citizens say that if the Citizens Band is not at the Fair they will never donate another dol- lar to the Society. The whole situation was discussed pro and con with.the result that the Society will pay for what would have cost them and accept the guarantee of Mr. Houk that the "Citi- zens Band will play both days at the There is very little change in the- ocat C.iM't. machinists' strike situ- ation. Yesterday four Japs wcrc brought in and put to work in the shops at cleaning up the engines and changing the water. This morning eight, or teu more Japs arrived but are working in the yard. Japs are doing laborers' work only. The Herald man saw three Japs and a white working at one engine and another .Tup working with the two Chinamen who have been working in the roundhouse for months at anoth- er.

Thr Winnipeg Trades and Labor Council met iast night, but took no action in rt-gard to the strike. Var- ious rumors are in circulation as to other organizations joining the strik- ers but they are apparently without Dubuque, Iowa, Aug. William lioyd Allison died in his Lo. strn-t home.

He was 79 years old and was only r> c--ntly elected to the Senate again, over Gov. Cummins. WATERING THE STREETS OF THE CITY engineers are not affiliated in any way with any other labor organiza- tion and it is certain they will not help the machinists in any way in their present struggle.

An Engineer's Opinion The strikers do not seem to have the sympathy of the other labor of- ganizations any more than they have of tho public. An engineer in con- versation with the Herald started shop foremen or "gan? bosses" walk- ed out at Winnipeg yesterday after- noon rather than work with the non- union men. It-is'-.said that three hundred have been distributed among the division- al points on the Western lines. The strikers .at Winnipeg and other plac- es have established a system of pick- eting and keep close watch on all trains arriving. The company had .special constables .in' the. yards and no indication of trouble being likely ta crop up. The C. P. R. officials maintain absolute silence with regard ;o the strike and decline to make any statements whatever. It is un- derstood however that no uneasi- ness is being felt as to the strike af- fecting the railway's ability to handle the western crop, the company being well prepared to handle ail that i.s Sam.

"The programme adopted by the council is practically the abandon. of the irrigation system inside of the sidewalk area. In his district there is only one user of rrigation and most of the trees are o large as not to require much wa_ Ting. "Outside the sidewalk block, we 'xpect to have the irrigation system m more streets than ever and to use system to its fullest capacity until some other better system is devised. "According to the best authorities it is not advisable to irrigate trees or anything else after Aug. 15 or 20, and .the present supply of irrigation will liktily be cut off about that time. "The water was not supplied to the city as early as usual this year for several reasons. The flood in- terfered with its delivery.
