MADE IN CANADA EWGILLETT COMPANY LIMITED Jjl �WTKTMIPEO TORONTO. ONT. MOVTIHAL^j Some Good Exhibits Seen At Annual Magrath Fair 11 V BY C. N. R. Lemieux Says Facts Won't 15c Given-Vote Likely Conies Today Ottawa. Aug. in.-The plan to divide tlie hiuise tonipht on lion. Oeorpt' F. Graham's amendment to the second lending of the Canadian Northern railway bill falling for foreclosure proceed inK.*. did not materialize, the debate was continued until midnight, when the adjournment was moved by K. B. Bennett of Calgary, and the house rose. The debate will be proceeded with on Thursday and the vote taken. Apart from IV. S. Middleboro of North Grey, and \V. F. MacLean. of South York, both of whom approved the proposed action of the government, the speeches were all made by opposition members. K. M. MacDon-nld said that the government should tell the house who is to get the money to be paid for the stock to be purchased. The country, he said, should consider whether the government would be justified in paying out millions for something that could be secured for nothing. Hon. Rodolphe Lemieux, D. D. Mackenzie and \Y. F. MeCrea all maintained that under the legislation of 1914 the government can take possession of the Canadian Northern railway as Boon as there is default in regard to the payment of interest on the guaranteed bonds, and that the payment of anything for the stock is not necessary. Mr. Lemieux, who spoke late tonight, asserted that the win-the-war meetings being held throughout the country are being presided over by pledgees and bondholders of the Canadian Northern railway. These patriots, he said, were holding war meetings in order to divert attention from the Canadian Northern railway proposals. Mr. Lemieux also asserted that the press of Canailn has been "sweetened" and would not tell the people the facts in regard to the matter. Brydon-Jack's Job Hon. J. 1>. !teid. in the absence of jHnn. Kobert lingers, replying to a MUestion by Hon. Uodolphe LeniicuN in the commons this afternoon, said that Mr. lirydon-Jaek had been appointed superintending engineer of the public works, department for Manitoba. Saskatchewan and Alberta, at a salary of $;!.oon a year. The appointment, lie said, was not recommended by the civil service commission for The reason that the commission lias no jurisdiction in the matter, the post belonging to the outside civil service. Hon. Frank Oliver read the telegram sent to the prime minister and himself by the non-partisan league of Alberta protesting against the action of the board of grain supervisors in prohibiting the export of wheat of last year's crop to the United States. The league also objected to the fixing of a maximum price on wheat unless the price of flour, bacon and other articles is also fixed. Mr. Oliver also referred to the fact that No. 1 northern cash j wheat is quoted at Winnipeg at ?2.40 while Minneapolis and Duluth quotations are from to S2.90. In view of tbesc lisures he asked if it was the intention of the government to maintain the maximum price for wheat and continue to prohibit its export. Sir George Foster said in reply that the prime minister had referred the telfjgram quoted by Mr. Oliver to his I department. The matter referred to j was under consideration and ho would, ! in the course of a short time, make a statement in regard to the matter -if it was considered best that he should do so. IMPORTANT CONFLICT British Front in France and Belgium. Aug. 15. (by the A.P.).-Considerable numbers of German prisoners are beginning to arrive in the collection depots. The new British front has been established on a triangular line like a pair of shears whose points are to the north and south of Lens. In the first stages of the fighting the Canadians met with comparatively small opposition, but as they pushed into the Lens environs the defense of the Germans stiffened. Whatever the outcome, the battle already has taken a place in the list of the most important conflicts in the war through the capture of Hill TO. (Krnm Our Own Correspondent'! Magrnth.

About ?100 was taken in and nearly all of this will be clear, the expenses being very few, nearly all of the refreshments being donated by tho ladies. The officers wish to thank all who helped and donated so generously. The affair was managed by Mrs. Geddes. A number of Magrath people attended the regular quarterly conference, held in Raymond on Saturday and Sunday.

Tho shooting from a car was done from a Mitchell Six, Mr. Huyck driving. Dutch Seidell also did some bull-dogging from tho Mitchell, but owing to the steer's desire to koop out of tho way it took a half mile run to accomplish the feat. The Judges The judges of the events are A. P. Day, of Medicine Hat, Charlie Fur-man, of Lethbridge, and Tex Smith, who came here to take part in the events but was unable to do so owing to a broken collarbone received three or four days ago. The stampede was l>s largest and most pretentious ever staged here. Unfortunately, many farmers are harvesting and cannot tako in the show, but tho crowds are good. Tho midway is a fine attraction, and with the dance in the main building in tho evenings, nmusement is furnished tho crowd from noon till midnight. The Raymond second ward is catering to a large number In their booth under the grand stand, helping out the city's eating facilities very considerably. There M no charge from any quarter that the crowd is being held up for what it buys in the grounds. A Suggestion If there is any criticism whatever to offer it is that the announcing has not been perfected, and the crowd does not always know' who is riding. If this could be overcome the interest o� the crowd would be held much more easily. The managers of the stampede are trying a different scheme Cor announcing the events and the Mars today, this will, no doubt, be a great benefit to the spectators. Edmonton, Aug. Ifi.-Kooha, a Coppermine Eskimo, brought from the mouth of tho Coppermine river by tho li.N.U'.M.P. patrol to testify against Sinntsiak and Uluksuk, who wore being tried for the murder of the Oblate missionaries, Pero Lo Iteoux and Pore Konviern, was tho star witness at the morning session. A member of the same village as tho accused men, Koeha detailed tho events leading up to tho tragedy, telling of tho priests' arrival in the villngo during the wlntcf of mil! and their departure some days later. That was tho last timo they wero seen alive. Ilavenek, a full blooded Eskimo, and a special officer of the R.N.W. M.P., acted as interpreter, and before transmitting questions to Kooha placed him under oath with tho following words BOROTSb (f) The bast known and moLt used baby talcum in the world. an Eskimo named Kormlk at Bernard Harbor, in the Dolphin und Union Straits on March 21, 1016.

He remembered when they wore killed. With much difficulty Koeha computed the number of winters that had passed since tho tragedy, counting on his fingers, and making circling motions that indicated the passing of moons. He said the priests had a muzzle loading gun and two ,4't calibre Winchesters with them when at j the mouth of the Coppermine, and ; later identified a rifle produced in I court as tho proporty as one of the Oblates. To the,question: "Did you ever see Sinnislak (the accused) with this j rifle?" Witness replied that he had seen I Uluksuk (the other accused) trade j the firearm to another Eskimo named j Kormlk, for an old gun of similar j calibre. Before the court adjourned at noon, witness admitted he had not I seen any Eskimos follow the priests j when they, set out along the trail. I Dr. H. C. Jamieno'i testified that stains on a piece of Roman Catholic vestment submitted him lor analysis, wero human blood stains nnd Constable Bruce of the R.N.W.M.P., swore he purchased the garment from human being, ten miles above Bloody Falls. Three empty cartridge shells of the same callbro as the rifle found in tho Eskimo village, wero picked up at Bloody Falls. The constable then returned to Great Hear Lake to tho Mounted Police base, and did not seo tho prisoners again until tho 2,200 mile trip to Edmonton was commenced.
