Washington, Aug. 8.-A Russian re-, public is certain to result from the situation in that country in the opinion of Elihu Root, head of the American mission, which returned today from its three months' visit to report to President Wilson. In Mr. Root's opinion only through the overwhelming of the country by German armies, making impossible further development in the formation of the new government, can prevent the erection of tbe Russian republic. I From Our Own Correspondent) Orion, Aug. 8.-August 5th and Gth were red letter dates for the village and district of Orion, Alberta, a branch""of the Manyberrles Mission Field. Orion is on the new Weybinn-Leth-brklge line of the C.P.R. and is situated about one hundred and ten miles ea-t of Lethbrldgc. or fifty miles south ! of Medicine Mat and was put on the ' map only last tail. The steel reached that point November 1st and about the same date Mr. Fred It. Robertson took charge of the Manyberries field as missionary and under his leade^--1 ship a church has been built at Orion ' which was officially opened and dedicated August 5th by the Rev. J. W. Morrow of Medicine Hat, who was greeted with a full house morning and evening. On Monday evening. August fith. Mr. Morrow delighted a crowded house -with his lecture, "Ireland, Irish Wit and Humor." The congregation of Orion are to be congratulated in that they - open their church practically free from debt. When the proceeds of the evening were counted it was found that remained unpaid only the small sum of $160.00. the total cost being $1200. When Mr. Rogers, chairman on the managing board, rose to move a vote of 'thanks to Mr. Morrow, he stated that it was the ambition of the board to open free of debt and he thought the small amount remaining might yet be wiped out. The suggestion tool^l fire and in a few minutes the remaining |160.0() was subscribed. Special mention is due also to the Ladies' Aid, who though organized only last March, have paid $165.00 towards the furnishings including a handsome Thomas organ. They have also raised ?51'.00 for the Red Cross Fund. Orion promises to be. an influential point in Southern Alberta. While only started in the fall of 1916 it can boast of four elevators and twenty other places of business. Winnipeg. Aug. 9.-Wheat buyers were again much in evidence in the cash market today, but sellers wero few. All offerings were quickly snapped up around yesterday's quotations.

There were a few small transactions in flax. Offerings are lighter every day. This applies in varying degrees to all grains. Trading in future deliveries was moderate with prices easier all round. There were transactions in barley around $1.15. Winnipeg cash wheat closed at $2.40 for No. 1 northern and from 1 to 3 ; cents higher than yesterday's quota- ! tions for grades below No. 1.
