There are no reserve wells to turn in .when a cold . snap ftomos. It was different a few y^easa ago when there were always Beveral wells in reserve Tor such a contin^eriey-y but' until the company drills and fllids new fields Jthe^ present wells will carry the load. ^ Mr. Winter Would say nothing about drilling operations other thaft that rigs were on the ground at Foremost, Barnwell and 'Monapch - ready to pro-c4ed with di'illing as soon as the present j'Ate Controversy at Calgary is Bettled. ; � ' tHe'eialCiary Plebiscite  Word from Calgary Is to the effect ^at .the cpmpany" has withdrawn its tMlfer to the 3sity'*WherebJta 'pipblscite oh thQ: raisltig Of the rates is to be taken at'the tlnuB'of the civic elections, f Tha^Tar(ou8 propositions pro-'^,ded in Itl^ plebiscite are :- '�j'fi'' ^00 you-to favor of bbidliig the' Mb;^^^ present price of i^'^'t^^ApMM^ ii> the francnito and >^ltIiolft!|peratlpn to the tranchtae?

He waa conducted by his Ameriifan guard-Ian to Shelby, where, it la. understood, he is to stand trial for the murder of the late Henry Jaeob-aen who was shot and klHed in the nfidnight affray which took place over the border recently. The Jury, at the inquest at the time, returned a verdict ol.dfeath by shooting by "an unknown hand." This unknown hand is alleged to be Mike Swiggan. It isl alleged furUier that the liquor said to have been stolen by Jacobsen, and which led to the affray, was the property of Swiggan, and that he had got Imniigration Officer Walker to accompany him to search Jacobsen's placet,. The mysterious part of the affair is that it has been practically proved that the bullet which kiUed Jftcoh fired from the revolyer b ' Walker, and, at the same clearly conclusive that Wi not have fired the shot Jacobsen was shot at the the skull, it now transpires, a big powerful ^man, oyer ab height and weighmg 286 poi The border appears to be No Man's Land for the smuggler.
