While the vote was not on party lines Mr. Borden having in the debate signified- he was not op- posing the bill of ratification and four other Conservatives voted with the government. The result showed a big falling off of the Opposition support. When the treaty came up in the- session of 1908 only 5 Conser- vatives voted against it. but tonight 33 opposed the second reading. The reasons given by its opponents were chiefly concerned with the uselessnes of a treaty to the fanners.

Press Opinions London. Dec. The spirit in which the Liberal press is prepared to meet the Lords decision of the budget is perhaps best indicated in the Chronicle's reply to the corres- pondent who suggested that like the Liberal journals at the time of the rejection of the reform bill it should go into "mourning." The Chronicle says the occasion is not for even mock mourning. "We welcome the de- anjclsion cheerfully and confidently en- ter upon the fight which it arouses." The Unionist press discusses the crisis with great gravity. The Mail and France very slightly.

The question of the possible action of the United States was hardely mentioned during the whole of the debate. It was evident that the Ger- man surtax would be referred to and matter insisted on coming into the" talk. Sir Wilfrid, while regret- ting the present strained trade re-j liation between Germany and Can- ada hardly thought it was Canada's fault. Mr. Foster. Mr. Monk, Mr. Doherty, Mr. Geo. Taylor and other prominent Conservatives voted for the 'second reading, the government forcing a di- vision evidently with the desire of putting every member present on record.

Duncan Marshall, minister of agriculture, for the holding of short- oiirsr schools in agriculture similar o what was held in Lacombe last year. JThe success of the school at this single point was considered so satisfactory that, it was decided to extend the usefulness of the course by giving instruction at the three dif- ferent point consecutively instead of one. The subjects dealt with by the short-course schools, will be stock raising, stock judging, soil culture, dairying, etc. Unless requested by the farmers in the south, the in- struction in dairying will be confin- ed largely to the two northern points. The staff of the department of agri- culture will be called into service together with such experts as are supplied by the Dominion live stock commissioner. Before leaving for the east on Saturday Mr. Marshall told the Bul- letin that arrangements have been made to open the schools of instruc- tion at Lethbridge first, in the month of February, and take Old? and Veg- reville in turn. Two weeks will be spent at each point. Mr. Marshall said that it was the intention to vary the location of the schools from year to year. HAD A MANIA FOR RICH CREAM C. P. R.

Partridge was formerly night agent at Coleman and it was while in that position, it is alleged, that the great- or part of his fraudulent transactions were consummated. Partridge's sys- tem of working, it is alleged, was to sell a ticket to a given point and on the stub, write in the name of a station a considerable number of miles short of the real destination, for example, if the traveller asked for a ticket to Moose Jaw he would in- sert Medicine Hat on .the stub pocket the difference in mileage be- tween the two places.

It was. of course, only a matter of time before the ticket and the stub were bound to be compared by the auditing; depart- ment and therein is the manifestation of both the clumsiness of method and boldness of the operator. Another method of defrauding which Partridge is said to have fol- lowed was in collecting for freight, it is said that if he thought a con- signee applying to pay a freight bill did not know the rate, he would col- lect a higher rate than that charged and profit by the difference. It is also alleged that Partridge was (in the habit of robbing milk cans {shipped to Coleman. A certain cater- er of Coleman received his milk sup- j p4y from Cowley and for some time had observed that he did not get any cream on his milk on which there Imd previously been an ample supply. One day on calling at the station for ms milk he caught Partridge in the act of locking the can. the lock of i which he had picked. It is supposed j he robbed the milk cans for the [love of drinking the cream as it is jnot known that he disposed of it. The inevitable detection came some time ago and it is said that for two or, three months, bj" direction' of the auditor, Partridge's pay cheque has been held back, yet in the face of that certain evidence that he was at least suspected if detection had not actually come, he is said to have car- lowing orders from the head Qn Wg ri ht up to at St. Paul.
