II.-A .telegram has just been received by the local union which will tend to widen the breach between tlifc Gran-by Company and the unions, and will at least for the present retard 'any settlement of difficultii*.i.

At tlie leguhir meeting of the miners' union here tonight tliey say there is but little hope of settlement expected, in view of the wire from Denver. . as will place the labor unions of Alberta on the .same footing as in the other provinces.
