BOTH LEADERS SURE OF ELECTION I Eleyen Seats Conceded to Each I Party, with Tbree in Doubt. (Special to the Lethbridge Herald) There can \ be no absolutely definite statement made at this hour (8.30 a.m. Thursday, Deo. 14) as to which government will be sustained in Saskatchewan. The conservatives concede 11 seats to the liberals, while the latter claim 14 seats; this practically means | moans that the liberals concede 11 seat to the conservatives, and that three seats are'in doubt. Premier Scott claims all ministers elected. The government claims the following seats: Battleford, Canning-ton, Humbolt, Lumsden, Moosejaw district, Prince. Albert city, Q'Ap-pele north, Regina south, Rosthern, | Saltcoats and York ton. The oppositibn claims Grenfell, | Kinistino, Maple Creek, Moosejaw city, Saskatoon^ Souris, Whitewood Wolseley, Batoche, Prince Albert | district and Redbury. There is thought to be no doubt as to Haultain's election in Q'Appelle and Scott's in Lumsden by goodly majorities. Premier Scott has made a statement that the government will carry fourteen! seats, while Mr. Haul tain says government will be defeated. It is very close running. The polls are so scattered that it is impossible to give accurate results in many constituencies. WHEN SOUTHARD 4? I GO TO A. EASTON & CO.

The dedi The Tariff Commission, The tariff commission, composed of Hon. Wm. Fielding, minister of finance; Hon. Wm. Paterson, minister of customs; Hon. Mr. Brodeur, minister of inland revenue, and Hon. Mr. Tern pieman, minister without portfolio, held an important session at Calgary last Friday, when many matters of moment were brought up for discussion. Our space will not permit of a lengthy account of the proceedings, but the following few extracts from the Albertan's .report will be of | onsiderable local interest:- The most sensational part of the when Mr. Barford, a day was merchant of Lethbridge, alteged that there was a combine among tho sugar refineries, and to prove it said that though he did a whole side business, he was unable to get sugar from the Knight Company because he did not belong to the Alberta Wholesalers' Guild. Mr. Ellison denied that any such combine existed. Hon. Dr. DeYeber made a gen eral explanation of the work of the Knight Sugar Company. He said that apparently the sugar refineries of Canada had divided Canada up into districts, and the Raymond Company had started in the B. C companies' territory and apparently an effort was being made to kill it. Ho said that it would be a calamity if the Raymond Company should be put out of business Mr. Barford addressing the commission again, said that the price of sugar at Lethbridge was regit lated by the price that Scotch companies could lay down sugar there. He suggested that a reciprocity in coal would be a good thing for the Lethbridge district. Hon. Mr. Fielding said that the United States did not appear to be in a hurry about offering .a reciprocity in coal. Mr. Barford said that an amount of coal was sent from Southern Al bertu to the United States SAYS "BARGA1NS" THERE'S SOMETHING DOING MORE THAN TALK Our past record proves this, but it has never been proven so thoroughly as it wili be when our doors open to the public Thursday morning, December 14, at 9 a. m.

Okotoks Review:-On Sunday, the ISMh inst, Airs. D'tvidMarshall, residing on the Barnes ranch near Linehatn, presented her husband with three bouncing healthy boys who are the first triplets we have heard of home in Alberta. Mr. and Mrs. Marshall arrived in Okotoks about six weeks ago, having driven by trail from Big Timber in Southern Montuna. Mr. Marshall is naturally proud of the boys and says they are three more good Conservatives for the Province of Alberta. This entitles Mr. and Mrs. Marshall to the King's bounty, and notice should be given to the Lieutenant-Governor at once of the interesting event, who will no doubt assist in getting the bounty and also giving a free homestead to each of three lusty Ixjys. ry some of our Glace Fruit and Nut Candy, Malaga Grapes, Pears, Oranges and Snow AppleB A VARIETY OF Choice Apples BY THE BOX J.
