Dec. 4.-(Canadian Press)-Final check on yesterday's mayoraltjr" vote in Winnipeg gives Edward Parnell, candidate of the Citizens' committee, a majority of 980 over S. J. Farmer, Independent-lkbor nom-! Inee. Parmer announced officially' this afternoon that he would ask for a re-count because of the large number of rejected ballots, estimated at from 15 to 20 per cent, of the tO,tal vote cast. Farmer received majorities in two wards--1,064 in Ward 2 and 8,342 in Ward 3. Parnell carried. Ward- 1 by 5.336 majority, which was sufficient to give him top place by 930 In the city. The first preferences In the alder-manlc contest were being checked today and it seemed fmprobable that the civic statisticians would make much pprogress before night In the distribution of second and succeeding preferences necessary to determine the 1921 council. Labor supporters are practically unanimous this morning in claiming the election of S. J. Farmer as mayor It the ballots, spoiled on technicalities are included in the re-count for which Mr. Farmer will apply. Labor men from the north ward,state that approximately 90 per cent, of the snoll-ed ballots were cast in Ward 3, which wr.s Mr. Farmer's stronghold, and that If these are counted it will mean his election by a considerable majority. HIGH RIVER HAS OPES OF 0 Team Seized By School District (From Our Own Correspondent) TABER. Dec. 3.-A court case recently tried at Calgarj- Is of local interest. A team of hoi-ses belonging to Mrs. H. Porteous of Taber, was sold to a party near Milk illver. and when the note fell due, the" buyer was unable to meet it, but agreed to pay the interest, which arrangement was I declared satisfactory. The buyer was, however, behind in his taxes, nnd tha secretary of the school district seized the team in spite ot protests from the seller. Demand was ma'de ior the' return of the horses, and on refusal, suit �was brought before Judge Jackson. The suit was decided in the deCoud-ant's favor, but au appeal was carried to the appellate division of the trial court at Calefy, J. H. Prowse, of Taber, and C. TP." P. Conybeare, of Lethbridge,' being' retained by the rospective parties. The appeal was granted, all the judges coincidnig In the decision, the deiendant to pay the costs of the action.

SullUo, K.Y London, log* TA� UMU Nane for LUU* Ittt' HIGH RIVER, Dec. -3.-The Times says the Imperial Oil company recently took over the Christy oil well on the south fork of Highwood River and commenced drilling operations therer This property had been operated several years ago, but .after drilling to a depth of 2,000 feet the promoters i had to abandon the project. The Imperial took up the work at the point left oft about. 5 months ago and on Tuesday last at a depth of 2,800 feet a strong oil seepage was struck and samples have be3n sent in to be analyzed. One of the samples was brought into The Times office today, just before going to press, which is of a rich, dark color, with consldefable body, and Is altogether different from the samples produced at the Black Diamond field. It has none of the peculiar odor of the Okotoka gas, being much heavier and darker In color and more like the heavy crude oil of Montana and Wyoming. A few weeks ago much interest was aroused over' the discovery of oil In the Port Norman district, which Is thousands of miles from railway transportation facilities. The find was pronounced of immense value as It would solve the oil difficulties of the world, which has become very acute as the Mexican and Mesopotamia fields cannot be exploited to the fullest extent owing to political turmoil in those countries. This fact makes the discovery of oil in the High River district of great imp.ortance, for with the-prestage and infiuence of the Imperial Oil company behind the operations we may expect that the Investigations will be thorough and complete, and the fields will be exploited not with a view to selling shares to the public but for the produq^ion of oil which Is so very necessary today4 In every field of endeavor. That oil exists here Is the belief of many. At Black Diamond we have evidence of an immense quantity there and at Pincher Creek we are informed the outlook Is very good for a rich oil field In that district. It would therefore appear that we are on the very edge of wonderful developments In this province, not only in gas and coal, but also oil.

(From Our Own Correspondent) GLENWOODVILLE, Dec. 1.-'Last evening at a special meeting of th^ local U. F. A. resolutions were adopted tavoring the wheat pool, as, outlined and advocated by the U. G. O. convention at Calgary, Nov. 25 and 26, and demanding that the government see that the railroad, commenced by the C'N. R. Co., running? from Calgary to Mat-leod. thence south to the Kootenay River, be completed in 1921. Stirring addresses were made in which the difficulties attendeut to tha wheat pool movement were set forth Mr. John Layne was the principal speaker. Local president Edwin Leavitt, who was present at the U. G. G convention, outlined the pool plan .adopted there and declared that we do not ask to control wheat prices. We are willing to allow the demand for our wheat to do that, but we purpofo to pass our wheat, as directly as pos-, Bible, from the producer to the con-! Burner, thus preventing gambling in j wheat and the making of excensivp profits by the middlemen. ' Some of the Cardston merchants would not have appreciated liearins what was said of them. It was declared that one ot them had said that the farmers arp a lazy set, and if, they would get out and work they could pay their debts; Also that they (the Cardston merchants) v.-ould run the U. F. A. store there out of business, It they had to break themselves to do so. Another one has said that $1.25 is enough for the farmers' wheat. These Btatements indicate that these n�erchant8 are not iu sympathy with the farmer In his present condition. It Is known that some of the Cardston merchants do not hold this view, but the feeling seemed prevalent that those who take such a stand should be boycotted by the farmers.
