Is/ what tho/ aro^oi'| qrand JPhin� Pacific ni mnis afifi 4'he Canadian- .Northern truns-eon lincntul systems, which are rushing grades and laying 'steel,ti the Pacific coast. ,.. - J -J i ,. ;' [� Four thousand laborers lira at work timbering, tunnelling, grading, and preparing for the rails on the lirst named line! In addition, 40 steam shovels, two river: ba^tS; a\\i- hundreds of'hor-BC3,j];diiiap-carts., .!' sjjcn'pert, cranes/ track laying machines and all sorts of tackle are employed on the last leg of the ocuan-to-ocean road. Engineers are confident that the golden spike will be dri^e^-aboqt" 12. miles bonce, midway between Edmonton and" the coast, but the contractors,./who..have charge of the actual work, say the job cannot be completed earlier than the fall of 1914 and possibly not before the middle of 1915. Graders are now entering the most difficult part of the task, the linal 8jt$$t�i! of 210' mitos, all of which is along stoep 3ido hills, composed of eTfj5p"6ry mica.' clay: The engineers, �wbx>"; planned tho route through the Yellowhead paes which makeB other transcontinental grades appear as Ifj they were blunders, are now running a)' constituent] that -defies practically every law' known to railroad science, and will keep the shovels busy for two years after all the steel is laid. ' Tile nature of the ground between the rail head and Fort George presents numerous problems' in engineering. The mica clay slides easily, in fact,, in,scores ,of instances it has been necessary to dig- out the same places two or three times. With a mountain of this jelly-like mixture needing only "a light rainfall to. start it-'shifting, the Grand Trunk Pacific has a problem in railroading not encountered elsewhere in the ivestein country.,Between Pocahontas and 'i ete Juan Cache the mountains rise to heights! of from 6000 to 10,000 feet. The highest peak is Mt. Robson. is,700 feet from base to apex. Mile 53, the present head of steel, five miles below Tete. Juan,- is the busiest place on tho line, "two steamers, the Constructor and the Conveyor, were built last spring by Foley, Welch and Stewart, to transport supplies down the swift running Fraser river. The boats are of the stern-paddle type, iso feet in length with 24-foot beam, driven by 150-horse power engines. The boats are of green spruce timber, sawed on the spot, and, considering the material, thoy are remarkably good craft. However, on account of drawing too much water, the boats can be used only when the stream is at its highest point. So far only half of the supplies havo been forwarded, and as the season is nearihg its close there will be delays. j Five steam shovels and several htm-1 dred cars of equipment and material are piled up at the head of steel and there ds so much other apparatus coming up every day that one wonders how the contractors can send even a fraction of it down the Fraser river before navigation closes. The lighter supplies' will go down in scows, which are built at the head of steel and abandoned after conveying the cargo to tho canyon, 100 miles below Stutbard. Four experienced men wltb 20-foot sweeps at bow and stern are neceBsary to navigate one of these scows. Loathing a steam shovel and transporting it down a swift river is a job that would give even a.seasoned sailoi some uneasiness. The shovel is run over a temporary track to an open scow, 40 feet in length and 20 feet in width, lowered into the bottom and ! lashed to the nose of the conveyor. When the craft swings into the current and heads clown stream, the work men hold their breath and the owners begin to figure the probable loss. Two shovels have been taken down that way-just turned loose and allowed to drift, so far without piishap. The Fraser river, however, has already claimed 1' human lives, mostly by accidents with rude rafts, handled by inexperienced workmen. There are numerous swirling eddleB in the stream, against which even the strongest swimmer has littlo or no chance. At intervals along the route between Edmonton and the head of steel are vacant store houses and other buildings of log walls snd tent roofs which were once occupied by builders and grading gangs; broken shovels, remains of worn-out machinery, discarded clothing and footwear and heaps of tin cans are rusting and decaying in the varied changes of climate, and here and there a lettered stone tells that the work of railroad construction', which draws its materials from Man From Oklahoma Wuh Arrested at Great Falls On Friday last Rev. A. ('. Watson, of the First Baptist church performed I the ceremony uniting in marriage .1. Cioodseed from Oklahoma, with a j.girl giving her name as Di/./.cl from i Texas. It now appears that Good-Lsced is a bigamist, having two other | wives .living. The story is best told ' in the following despatch from Great | Falls: Trailed from the western part of Oklahoma from town to town as far as the international boundary and then back to this city with officers on the watch at every important point but always too late to make his capture, .1. E. Goodseed, a man alleged to have two wives, neither divorced, was arrested in this city last evening while travelling with an 18-year-old girl who was passing as his wife and to whom it appears, he was married at Lethbridgc. According to information which has been received in the city regarding the case it is believed that the girl who was travelling' as the wife of. Goodseed had,��beejj^yirtually sold into slavery, it being claimed by the officers upon their trail' thai "Tack" King, a cousin of the girl and who was one of the party, had made a deal -with GoodseedVby which he had sold her to the latter. It w-as only recently that Good-seed and the girl, Tot Frizzell, a comely young blonde of 18 years, departed; from Lecdy, Okla., accompanied 'by King and headed for the northwest. Goodseed, who, it is alleged, is a married man with a wife and three small children residing in that place, deserted his family and when the fact became known an officer of the. sheriff's office was started out post-haste upon the trail. This officer traced, ihem from town to town wiiere newfound in numerous places that they had stopped at hotels, and where, according to a telephone message received in the  city from an officer last evening-, Goodseed and the girl'registered-as'Wan and wife. -. � i.."'i : . This officer traced them as far as Billings and learning that they had taken a westbound Burlington train in this direction decided that they were heading-for Canada. lie at once- got into, communication with the sheriffs office in this city, and with the deputy sheriff at Shelby. The latter telephoned to Sheriff Collins yesterday afternoon that the party had- passed through that place on the train from Lcthbridge and were supposed to have returned to this city on the local train to arrive here at 6:15 last evening. Undcrsherifi M. D. Nicholson re ceived this word shortly before the arriving time of the train and notifying Sheriff Collins at once went to the depot.. lrpon the arrival of the train the undersheriff saw the trio in one of the coaches and upon their alighting Goodseed was placed under arrest by that ofTcial, Sheriff Collins and Deputy Sheriff Dennis. The girl seemed to. take the arrest as a joke and laughed about it. She was allowed to go to the jail with Good-seed and remained there last night, though she is not under arrest. She had $110 on. her when she arrived here. Following the arrest the Oklahoma official was notified by telephone and he stated that he would arrive fronf Billings1 this afternoon on train 43 to take charge of the prisoner. This official volunteered the information that following Goodseed's disappearance from Leedy with the Friz-'/ell girl it became known that he had 'two Wives living, never having been divorced from his first before marrying the second. His second; wife, with her three children, has since gone to her parents in Texas. After being taken to the county jail a search of the effects of the prisoners brought to light a marriage license showing; that Goodseed and the girl had been married in Leth-bridge last Friday. It is presumed that.they went to Canada to be mar-tied for the purpose o! evading publicity in this country which might lead to their being located by the o!-flbers, and that they came back here with the intention of quietly settling at some point in the northwest. It is understood that the charge against Gopdseed is that of bigamy. The girl is not being; held a prisoner but is occupying quarters at the jail. CASTRO READY TO STRIKE VENEZUELA Information received by adherents of Ciprlano Castro, deposed President of Venezuela, not only InSlcate that be Is in the Canary Islands, but that he is completing arrangements for another descent upon Venezuela. That this project may prove successful this time, because of the open hostility to Presl-' dent Gomez, now dangerously approaching revolution, Is considered to be almost certain �* - -- 1^ Early showing of Fall Millinery , Aug. 20 and following days We will show our first iv Fall Millinery Newest Ideas in Trimmed Hats MISS CAMERON Hill Block upstairs 516 3rd Ave. the whole civilized world, must also take its toll of human life. Thirty-two large and small steel bridges will be constructed between Kesplendant and Fort George. After leaving Tete Juan cache the road wir cross tho Fraser river four times before reaching the fort. The first of these bridges is 47 miles below the present railhead. At the canyon, fio miles farther west, the survey crosses the river twice within a few miles, re-crossing it at tho canyon. There is also a bridge at .Hesplendant, malting five spans over tho Fraser river. A long bridge will cross the Shusway river and one must be biuilt over the Ghost river before trains are run into Fort George. Tho principal contractors below steelhead are: Carlton & Company, 25 miles, with seven shovels; Griffin and Company, 25 miles, with four shovels on the ground; Burns & Jordan, 43 miles, with a battery of diggers; Spend & Company, 25 miles, with five mach: inos, and Simmons & Company, the last 50 miles of the grade to Fort George.

Word waa received at the residence of Bishop Bernard on Sunday, announcing officially the submission of, Abbe Bergeron. This is the first ot the band of eighteen priests who stood by Canon Letnieux during'the past five years of trouble to abandon him, and 'submit to the orders of Bishop Bernard; No word could be obtained regarding the future position of Abbe Bergeron.

Judging at a lair seems to be abAut as difficult as umpiring a baseball match. There are kickers and all kinds of insinuations made. One of the men in charge of an exhibit of .Jerseys thought that a competitor had been given all the favors at Kdmonton because he. had sold his stock for the demonstration farms and, the judges were consequently judging government stock and handing out the favors. However his stock hadn't been judged here yet and it remains to bo seen what kind of luck he will have. There probably wasn't much ground for this kick, but it goes to show what the judges are up against. There were no kicks heard among the horsemen and all seemed pleased with the accommodation provided and the arrangements made for caring for the stock. Among the biggest exhibits of cattle are a fine herd of Ayrshires owned by U. Ness, of De Winton, and a magnificent bunch of Aberdeen-Angus cattle, owned by O. V. Battle, of Iowa. Jerseys are shown by Harper and son of Kinley, Sask., Bull Bros, of Brampton, Ont.; K. VV. Pilling, of Spring Coulee, and others. It was surprising to learn how popular the little Jersey cow is in the west. One naturally thinks of Holstcins, Ayrshires, Galloways and others of larger frame than the Jerseys, but dairy men say the milking qualities of the Island cow wake her a prime favorite. That a thoroughbred Jersey oow is a luxury is evidence by the fact that the lowest priced ones run at $200 to $225 each. Mr. Drewry, of Cowley, is an Holstein expert and has some fine animals on exhibition. This afternoon Barney Oldfield with his auto racing stunts, was the attraction for the grand stand.
