Sir Edward Carson, Vho was "one of many: asked to testify before the eommiBsioni sent a reply declining the invit^lon, feeling certain, he said, -"that all ti-be Americans who desire close friendship' between their country and ours would resent such unwarranted interference�wlth the affairs of u foreign friendly state." The Qlbb* prints Carson's reply with a comhibtfidator^ editorial entitled "Oamned Impudence." "Lot Amortcans," adds the Globe, "mind ;theit 0^1 business and leave lis to miifd ourst They have quite enough to do at borne, for a country which before the war had, and for alight tb^t had apjpeared to the contrary still has, the highest record of murders and homicides of any civilized state in the world, a record surpassing even tha.t of Turkey. To attempt to teach us how to manage our own affairs bbrders up0n the ludicrous.

MINERS DECIDE TO ]OINU.IilllOF|i. \yill Return to Work Provided There is No Discrimination Shown CALGARY, Dec. 3.-That all the miners in the Edmonton fields have now joined the United Mine Workers of America, was the information given The Calgary Herald, Thursday, by Robert Livett, who is In charge of that organization in Calgary. He has just returned from the north and states that there is a good prospect now of the strike there being, settled. Ho mentioned that the men at a mass meeting Wednesday night, decided to return to work, providing there was no discrimination and to apply for a board to settle the dispute. As previously mentioned, these miners were not members of the t7. J M. W. of A., and the day-wage men struck for the increase that was re' cently granted of $1.15 per day to the day men belonging to the organization in other coal fields. ,One of the mines in the north had in the meantime, agreed lo the advance, but refused to recognize the United Mine Workers' association. While the strike was In progress, overtures were made to Mr. Livett, that he should proceed to Edmonton to organize the men, which he did, and he stated that at a mass meeting that was held, they all decided to join the miners' organization. The obiectlon of some of the operators to having anything to do with the U. M. W. of A., may tend to hold After having worked as a chore boy on a fftrm outside of Winnipeg for two years, it was discovered he really iiras a girl. Since having been discovered she has been brought Into Winnipeg and put under the care of one of the local societies, but still Mickey doesn't care much for ribbons and other girlish decorations. Photos show on left, Mickey in her working togs, and on the right, in the first girl's clothes she has ever worn. up the settlement that is In process; but Mr. Livett Is of the opinion that this matter will be satisfactorily arranged shortly. SNUFFS AND SNEEZES TO REPLACE WHISKEY AT SCOTCH BANQUET BOSTON, Dec. 1.-The cup that cheers was replaced by the snuff that exhilarates when the Scotch Charitable society revived an old custom at Its annual banquet to take place of antl-prohlbltion toasts, scotch snuff from a silver-mounted ram's horn was passed . about the tables. First to take a cautious pinch was Governor .Calvin Coolldge. vice-president-elect, who was the chief ggest. From him the horn went down the banquet board. Sneezes followed. Soon afterward professor Chart-eton Black of Boston university related an anecdote directed to despondent victims of the eighteenth amendment. It was the warning of an old Scotchman to his aon against too liberal use of snuff, with the statement that "I've been drunker on sneezum than I ever was.on whuskey." There is very little waist material in a fashionable evening gown.
