In- deed, greatly reinforced by people from surrounding districts, two hun- dred people arriving from Olds, Stet- tler, Carstairs, etc., 'they cheered him more lustily than ever. Hon. C: R. Mitchell, provincial at- torney-general, came down from Ed- monton yesterday and will be at Cal- gary. Hon. Duncan Marshall, minister of agriculture, left by evening train for lalgary, whore he will part from he premier, and will conduct Presi- leat Creelman, of the G-uelph. Agricul- ural College, on a tour of -the prov- ince. Red Deer overflows with, .parliamen- tary members, R. L. Shaw, of Stet- tler, J. E. Staufter, of Didsbury, and W. F. Puffer, of Lacombe, being in- cluded. Mayor G. H. Riggs, of Stet- tler, and F. Whiteside and -Wm. Har- of Castor, were in the city, the latter -two for the purpose of pre- senting an address to the premier on behalf of Castor. The premier was too tired to go Our honest belief is 1' That we have brought as near perfection as modern methods and materials will permit. Blue Ribbon Tea has a distinct individuality that lifts it above the line of comparison with other brands. Buy a packet today and if you are not entirely satis- fied with it your grocer will refund your money. for the long auto ride arranged, and before lunch contented himself by touring Red Deer in company with Chairman C. L. Durie, of. the Liber- al executive. He was greeted all along the route with cheers and rais- ed hats. It thundered slightly as he was on his way to Waskasoo park, where ov- er a thousand people were gathered, and the clouds growing blacker while Chairman Durie and Dr. Michael Clark, local M.P., spoke, the storm burst suddenly.' The chairman immediately announc- ed the adjournment-to the Lyric hall, where the crowd rushed. The premier braved the storm and and found a wet but enthusiastic audience wait- ing. Dr. Michael Clark heard himself eulogized by ministers from the pre- mier down, and made a breezy spefich himself. He.said the Canadian Pacific tried to kill the premier politically, but I good to Canada in that it ruled pric- es articles to consumers. With respect to grain elevators he declared he had under consideration a Minnesota state law that he under- stood" drove operators of Duluth ter- minals to 'Port Arthur and Fort Wil- iam. What could be done at Duluth :ould be done at Canadian places. Regarding -the chilled meat ques- tion he declared that had been done for the Ontario cheese trade in the way of cold storage in transporta- tion by sea and rail could be done for dead meat in the West, especially in view of the Hudson's Bay railway. The Railway Act Hon. G. P. Graham'took up the Railway Act amendment matter, raised by.farmers, that the amendments suggested- were all in. the present act, that .onus of proof for neglect the railway .where cattle strayed on .railway property, that the present cattle guards were the best that could be hand, -but the commission were willing to consider other patents, that pits were impos- sible on account, of the .present hsavy grains, that the matter of fences be- ing erected where railway construc- tion was going on was the appeal now taken up by railways. Mr. F. F. Pardee said discerned a feeling in the west thafe Canada was following in the. footsteps of our southern neighbor and was permitting trusts to get the upper hand, and to didn't know they attacked him phy- sically before, but physically and politically he is a tough nut to crack. A pretty incident marked the begin- ning of the premier's .speech, two smiling girls, Rosa Krauss and Lil- ian Smith, a brunette and blonde, presented him with boquets of sweet peas. The premier asked their names and then kissed them. The rain also prevented Hon. G-. P. Graham from pitching baseball in a game between Alix and Red Deer. Premier's Reply to Farmers The feature of the premier's address at Red Deer yesterday was the reply to a delegation of United Farmers by the premier, who saw no cause as suggested distinction should exist be- tween farmers and manufacturers. He denied that the tariff was made only for one class, declaring revenue from customs duties only would exist until Canadians had more settled con- ditions, and explained the good of British preference was actually being THANAST Exhibit of Poultry at the Fair Was Good, Judge The exhibits of poultry at the as noted at the end of his report hy E.

At a Garden Party Despite the urgings of ministers not to vesture out in view of the uncer- tain weather, the premier imsistec upon attending the garden party at the residence of H. H. Gaetz, which was postponed on the previous night in consequence of the rain. Although there were no speeches the premier stood on the steps between Mr. Gaetz and Dr. Clark and shook bands with some two hundred people who ventured out to see him, includ- ing the members of the Ked Deer band, which has attended every func- tion during his visit. Across the grounds were strung Chinese lanterns and the streamer "Statesman and Patriot." Up to the present no change at this end in the time of leaving for Cal- gary. It.is possible a brief stop be made at Olds. felt in Canada.. He'promised that if fs caused the question of terminal elevators financial could not be settled in any other he would agree to government ownership, suggesting that in the meantime efficient legislation foe pass- ed against grain mixing. Chilled Meat Question OIL BROKER SUICIDES New York, Aug. Werie- mann, an oil broker, committed sui- today in his office on Broad St., by shooting himself with a revolver. Business troubles are believed to be responsible for his act. The shoot- ing caused much in" the T. Hagell and Jas. Johnston shared the prizes in the Brahma class, the former getting first for cock and sec- ond for hen and the latter first for hen, second for cock, and first for. cockerel. J. B. Ririe, of took first prize for the Plymouth .Rock ibarred. cock, the rest of the honors in this- sectlon going to.the Lethibridge.Farm ing Co., Jas. Johnston and S. Don- aldson, John C. Livingstone had.a nice showing of Plymouth Rock buffs Respecting the chilled meat ques- tion he said what could be done in Australia and New Zealand for ex- portation of dead meat could be done in Canada. Last year a bill was passed in fav- or of retail merchants, and I see no reason at all why it should not be done for any other class who want co-operation, was his reply anent thej co-operative petition. Speaking of tariff the premier ob- served, "It is in in the interests of farmer and manufacturer that they work for common purposes. I don't admit classing of interests, I saw some criticism of tariff. Tariff was made for all classes. I don't admit reproach inferred in a petition in re- gard to Fielding's tariff of '97. It is not invidious to anyone. ?Cam a free trader. You want free trade im- uutr it cai'l'b W liOziC." Duty of Seventy Articles He pointed out they could not have direct taxation upon income as in England, where exists a leisured class as against Canada where settlers were making homes in the bush and wilderness for themselves. Of 481 du- tiable articles in 1897 Fielding re- duced duty on 150 and abolished duty on 70, the latter articles including fencing wire and binder twine. The British preference, which was the government's settled policy, worked HINDUS SAIL FOR THE U. S. Calcutta, Aug. hundred Hindus, have sailed, the majority for the United States. The Consul Gen- eral of the United States says they will probably be refused permission to land at San Francisco. The practice of such immigrants was to enter the States via Canada.- The Consul Gen- eral expressed Ms opinion that the United States government would make representations on the subject to the British government. and captured the majority of ;the prizes for that class with them. He also captured the prize for the best breeding pen, three hens and one ;ock, any variety. Fred Senior and W. -Carter divided the honors for White Plymouth Rocks and the former also took the Farmers' Special for breeding pen, any variety, owned by a bona fide farmer. There was a. ibig showing of -white and other varieties of Wyandottes, Jas. Benton securing first and second or white cockerel, and -the Lethbrfdge Fanning Co. and J. A. Massey taking the rest of the whites. S. Donald- on, A. C. Drake' and Jos. Thompson winning money with other varieties. R. G. Addison secured .first and sec-, pnd prizes in the class for-game cock- erel and pullet. The Siver spangled Hanuburgs that came out oil top be- longed to S. Donaldsoon, he taking all the firsts but one and most of the seconds. J. B. Ririe, of Magrath, took first with geese and with gos- lings, a first and a second in the tur- key classes and both firsts in. ducks. Big crowds visited the home of "our feathered friends" all three days of the -Fair, and the owners say the birds swelled up with pride at the eulogistic remarks passed concerning their size and beauty.
