Ellison Milling Company Rosebery's Son For Cabinet (Continued from .front page) The Liberal candidate contended .llmt free trade was 'the chief issue and tlie return of, his opponent woulc thus appear to be a staggering blow to Cobdeni.te principles. The Manchester Guardian, one of the. leading, advocates, of free trade, eays: "We are sorry for the heaviness of tho blow which the Unionist success might give to free trade. .There is on ly on-o'Issue In which the vote of Northwest Manchester can do more than any other constituency, an-d that Is free trade." The Times, oh the other hand, thinks "it would be unwise to draw from this el-actlon the conclusion that the. electorate has '-made up Its mind to accept tariff reform. believe the real reason to be a g-eneral weari ness and distrust of tlie government." the opinion of 'those "best uble to' know, Is 'true and the raora'l doubtless Is tliat when tha general el- ection cornea' Northwest Manchester will return to its old allegiance. Son for Cabinet 0-.' the speculations as to Cabinet eh'ang-av which have, recently, filled the newspapers, the most interesting is that the Hon. Neil Primrose, the son of the.Earl of Uosebery, IB likely to government position.' Members .of all parties in the House recognize him as thoroughly worthy of advancement. Every one is impressed by his abil- ity and fair-mindedness, and on all sides it is agreed that a brilliant car- eer Is before him. He is still quite young, having been born in 1S82, Further than that, tho only 'proposal as to chaugQs in tho ministry con- cern B the front bench hi the House of Lords, 'which, it Is said, must be strengthened for the coming debates oil' Homo Welsh Disestablish- ment, and the Franchise' bill. Thi; is notoriously the government's weak spot, and It IB quite possible" that Aug- ustine Birrel will be aaked -to accept a peerage, and Secretaryship of State, In exchange for'the Chief Secretary- ship of Ireland; while it is also pro- bable 'that Harold .T. Tennant, tln-iler Secretary of War, will go to the Upper House, retaining his post. Expect Promotion Two other junior members of the gove'riiment expect promotion soon: C. F. G. Masternmn, Financial Secre- tary, to the Treasury, has shown him- self worthy of higher rank by. big cap- able conduct of the routine work c-f tha Insurance Act; while Thos. .1. 11 c- Namara, Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty, has proved a thorough- ly efficient lieutenant to Winston Churchili.

REPORTS OF HAIL NOT CONFIRMED Anxious enquirers have been calling the Herald office all day to find out whether reports of damage "by. hail in all parts of the south are true or not. It was reported generally that hail had fallen at'several points ju the Lethbridge at Noble, Barons and New Dayton especially. However, the Herald is glad tn re- port that advices received from these points set at rest all- anxiety as to damage by hail. On Saturday, the heavy clouds in -the south led to the belief that that part of the country was experiencing hail storm, but reports from all along the line indicate that it was nothing, more than one oi the hcsivi- est rain storms of the season. A few mil stones fell, but the damage' re- ported is absolutely nil. The rain was of short duration and the farm- ers are busy in the fields today again.

Extremely Reasonably Priced at to HUDSON'S BAY COMFY Chief Calls it a Raw Deal (Continued from front point blank where he "I'm for going ah'ead with what we have start- he said. So, if Aid. Aird brings the matter up at the next meeting, the result all de- ponds on Mayor Hatch, 'who can eith- er settle the affair in favor of a judi- cial enquiry, or bring about a dead- lock in the Council. It seems practi- cally certain, however, that the Coun- cil will agree to hear at least part of the evidence In police committee before the judicial enquiry proceeds. Calls it "Raw Deal" Chief Gilleapie is getting desperate. He thinks the Council is giving him the worst end of what he calls a "raw and he told the Herald so on Saturday evening. "I'm going to know where I stand next he said, "or I will start something which wfll stir up more trouble than anything yet. I have not been treated like a decent citizen." The Chief Intimated that no matter what happened, he would institute, proceedings against certain parties who are supposed to have instigated the- charges against him. "If they only liriow it, they have on- ly the result of tliis investigation standing between them and a seven years' term in the pen." Action for slander seems to be the object hinted at by the deposed chief of tho puiiue. Radcliffe Wants to Know Wrongful dismissals seem to be coming thick and fast In municipal circles these days.

Most of the 'inembem of the Counci 1 bought thai the people should be giv- en a free ride, absolutely on Sat urday, and that they might consider placing ono or two cars at dispos- al of the W. C. 7YTJ. for ah excursion to the lake shortly after opening; Tlie Street Railway committee, however, will consider the request further, and report at the adjourned meeting to bo held this week.
