The facts of the case arc that very soon after the International com- pany installed its coke ovens here it has .been supplying the British Co- lumbia Copper company's smelter-at Greenwood, 13. C., with all the coke it could produce, and the company is now working.under a contract, which extends for several years jet, where- by the Greenwood smelter takes the Lotal output of the coke ovens at Coleman. Heretofore the Copper com- pany has been getting what coke was needed, over and above the out- nit of the International company, rom the Leitch Collieries at Pass- burg, but tho closing down of the nines at that place has rendered H iccessary to look elsewhere, lor a supply of coke. There has been a greatly increased demand for coke at he Greenwood smelter owing to the ncreased output of copper and ar- angcmcnts have been made with he Crow's .Vest.

MINORITY REPORT SENT IN Ottawa. Dec. department of labor this morning received the minority report of the conciliation board which dealt, with tho dispute between the C. P. it. and its employ- cos.

Several influnntial members and of- ficers of the local agricultural society were recently interviewed by your correspondent, and the statement of the secretary, B. Matkin, may be taken as voicing the sentiments of the ma jority of the Magrath people in th ma tier. Mr. Matkin said: "The idea scenu to have gone out that 1 favored tin fair being held in the three towns a! ternately, each town to get ;i fair every three years. This is untrue 1 have declared on many occasions that these fall fairs would prove the financial deathblow to the various societies, and that the only apparent means to guard against such condition would be to hold one targe 'air at some central point, the exhi- bition to he held there each year. "Now it would be foolish.and poor policy to keep three grounds and sets of extent and number ot which would necessarily have to he greatly repair and condition for a fair every three years. This would be far worse than the present system, and I am certainly opposed to it. "Therefore, I say this, that inas- much as Magrath is very advantag- eously located for the people of both Raymond and Cardston, being cen rally situated, and in view of the fat that the Magratb Agricultural Sociel owns its own grounds and building which every one will admit are th best of the three, and considering tha neither Cardston nor Raymond make this justly proud boast, and fiu ther that Magrath has one of the hes race tracks and grandstands In th province, we contend that If this am algamation fs seriously contemplated the Magrath Society urges and in vites the societies of the two siste. towns to make the Garden City the home of a bigger, brighter and more elaborate Southern Alberta exhibi ion. But we cannot, however, favoi sort of 'sliding be.cause o] he much heavier expense and the much less benefits to accrue from uch an arrangement." Thus Magrath's position is plain, nd should Mr. Alatkin's scheme ap- eal to the other societies they may epend upon the Garden City to be a royal host, and a'good place to spend a few days. The local Agricultural Society re- cently held its annual meeting and, elected officers for the ensuing year. The election resulted as follows: Hon. President. Harbor; President, .i. B. Hfrie: first vice, W. Ackroyd; second vice, P. Carter; secretary- treasurer, B. Matkin; and the follow- ing directors: IT. F. Searle, .las. Far- ren, Jas. Mcldrtim, J. J. Head, D. T. Fowler, If.

The report of Secretary Matkin was submitted and manimously accepted. H showed that he had been a faithful and untiring officer. The funeral of the late Martin Mill-i was held Sunday and the large congregatian present testified to the ligh esteem In which he was held n this community.

The Indians received [roods trifling in value, but no money or food in return for many months' la- boi-- To obtain slaves the agents of the company organized hunts and, con- cerning this Sir said Indian judge told me that a higher agent of the company went out on one of the trips. He and his men surprised an Indian settlement in the forest. The parents had Just time to fly but; not to take their children, 18 of whom were left in the houses. When the parents got a little way off they waited, hoping the children would overtake them. "The parents saw what followed. The men took the children and dash- ed their brains out against, the trees. The agent, it is alleged had hern chief of a section and had been ar- rested and kept in irons, but was Afterwards released." Replying to Sir I-Mmond, the. wit ness declared that the Indians were largely wild and the inajoritv naked They had absolutely no human rights, much civil, and were hunted and chased.
