In the office of the railway com- pany on Jasper avenne there are yards upon yards of survey maps, showing the preliminary location of the line northward from Edmonton. These contours have been studied carefully by Dr. Waddell, chief en- gineer, and from them he has been able to strike out a final location, which will mark where the line is to be laid down. From these headquarters two large survey parties left, one on Tuesday and a second on Wednesday, to un- a Land With an Your So, You Fraser Valley 0 YOU KNOW that we have roses that bloom every month in the year? s Won't that tell you in itself that we have no severe weather Come with us and let us show you the RICHEST OF SOIL, in a country where a few acres" will make any industrious man independent for life.

The other has proceeded straight to Lac La Biche and will make the preliminary survey of the 150 miles to the railway terminus. Will Go to Lac La Biche. In order to make the final loca- tions before' the opening of spring, the maps prepared by the prelimin- ary party will have to be submitted to the chief engineer for his final de- termination. For this purpose it is the intention of Dr, Waddell to pro- ceed shortly to Lac La Biche, and encamp there during the winter. At this point he will receive reports on the topography of the country from both parties, one to the north of him and one to the south. Two More Parties to Go Out. AB soon as a determination of the course of the line can be made on the basis of the preliminary survey two additional parties will be in- structed to follow up the first two parties and make the final locations. From hia station at Lac La Biehe Dr. Waddell will keep in touch with the four advancing parties by means of couriers. Dr. Waddell will make a brief trip to the scene of operations north of Edmonton and will return to meet Manager W. R. who is ex- pected shortly from Winnipeg. 'If Mr. Clarke is.favorable to the plac of work laid out for the winter, Dr. Waddell will proceed next week to Lac La Biche.

His speech on the subject "Lesson from Britain" is full of instruction. He said that the land situation in Great Britain is full i "Of instruction and for Can- j ada. It is. full of interest to Cana-! dians when it is remembered that 80 j per.cent of the land of Britain is held] by 3 per cent, ol the people, accord-1 ing to a. statement which has been I made. At all events one quarter ol the land of Scotland, low lands and highlands, is held by twelve men. One man alone owns over a million and a quarter acres., Canadians should see to it that the land of this country is not squandered. God made the land of the people and the absenct of landlordism whether it be that of an individual or a syndicate, would be just as damaging to Canada as to Ireland, or Scotland or 'England. Mr. Macdonald de- clared, "is responsible for.-.the slums and socialism of England and the so- cial system of the mother country is in instructive warning to Canada ag- linst all coming conditions that will n Canada, as in England, produce the slum. "A number of Canadian Mr. Macdonald said, "are al- ready in dire distress because they have neglected the land situation in the towns. Hamilton, Winnipeg and ind Fort William have that difficulty 'oday." Mr. Macdonald expressed the opin- .SIMPLE PERFECT SIMPLE SIMPLY.

John Wallace Mac- Neil, ledgerlcecper in ibe Metropolitan Bank, was found in an unconscious condition in his room on Bathurst, St. on Saturday night. Two physi- cians were called in but despite their efforts to save the young man's life he died about two hours later, Mac- Neil shot himself while sitting up in bed. The deceased was employed in the College and Bathurst Street Branch of the Metropolitan Bank. He was 24 years of age. his action is known. No reason for jLiie Standard is confident people are with the peers on the Unionist side. "The great effect produced .by Lord Cawdor's assertions In the Lords Tuesday nisht is supported by tex- that real parent .of Snowden advanced also by resurrection tual questions budget is, Mr. Socialist, M.P., speech by Premier Asquith in 2S94 when he said where there was rea- sonable doubt whether upon any question the Commons was repre- senting a majority of electors. Lords jthe radical Chronicle says: "The peers are going headlong to ruin by a mad attempt to shift supreme con- trol from the representatives of the people in the Commons to the here- ditary non-elective chamber." "This." said the Morning Leader, "is not a question whether this or that minister or party will be in of- fice next year or the next after, but a question of putting the clock back to the days beyond the Stuarts." The Manchester Guardian is con- fident the country will repel this at- tack upon itself and all the radical press echo Lord ministerial declaration that no Liberal ministry will again take office without guaran- tees and guarded by statute that the peers will never again reject budget. The Unionist press on the other hand takes the situation very calmly. The Times says the changes proposed in the budget trench so deeply into what is permanent and oi-ganic that they must be submitted to the judgment of should have power on interposing the electorate. The House of Lords such delay as would enable that doubt to be authoritatively closed. Lords claim this is just their'position today. The Financial News. Commenting, says: "The Lords in the name of the electorate flung a challenge to mdacious claims. It is for the elect- has no right, even if it had the will to connive at the destruction of the con- stitution without the express author- ity from the country. The Daily Tele- graph, says a sigh of relief goes up from the country by a splendid stroke of courage and statesmanship of the orate to say that answer shall come! Lords. They ensured that the will in such a hurricane of national anger! of the people on a new and grave as shall leave no political pirates iSoat upon the constitution." The Globe says: "On this occasion the peers stand simply and solely for the right of the people, in determin- ing their own 'ate and maintaining liberties they have won." Express says: "Party that hum- issue shall prevail. Tue Morning Post comments as fol- lows: "What consideration the labor party received for this magnanimity has not been disclosed. Perhaps it cannot be until just before election. It is quite clear, however, they would not have relieved the Liberal anxiety bugged the country with Chinese j to such an extent because they are slavery, trying to repeat the trick with risking nothing in these places unless a social welfare budget and it is de- plorable that that description is be- encouraged by shortsighted sen- timentalists of certain prelates.' Commenting on the action of the Lords in throwing out the finance bill they had an offer of a quid pro quo, from ministerial whips. Where con- version of government to socialism expressed In the budget would not satisfy legitimate parliamentary as- piration of the Labor party."
