WILL WELCOME ALL ON BUSI NESS BENT BUT NOT IDLE SIGHTSEERS Princeton, N. J., Deo. days of public receptions in the big east room of the White House are numbered and in the nest adminis- tration people will not be received at the executive mansion merely for the purpose of siu-.king hands or gazing in curiosity at the president of the United States. President-Elect Wilson declared last, night that he saw no use in spending time just to receive people who had no public business to transact at the White House. He also indicated that he would not attend very many of the ban- quets that national societies of vari- ous kinds hold in Washington, and to which Urn president is so regular- ly invited. "Many of these he said, "represent in'.'portant objects and I appreciate (he possibilities of their assisting government work, but 1 really don't sec any need of to the banquets of the organizations. It might he better to address the busi- ness meetings of these societies. Mr. Wilson said that his open door pol- icy would be preserved at the While House, so far as it was phys'cally possible and that be intended to have the doors m the executive, of- iiccs thrown wide open so Hie president would be accessible at all times, but only to Ihose 'who have business to transact.1 Fighting every foot of the way, tne case tor the four alleged gamblers, Leahy, Moffat, Lazaruk and Ferguson, was resumed this morning before (istrate Elton and Inspector .West.

The evidence taken was that of the prosecution, and was" confined to the provincial who hart taken a hand In ;the was on when the raid took place. In cross-examining, Mr.- Palmer laid particular stress on the evidence re- I latlng to the amount of money taken out of the pot by the banker, 'Beards- ley. The defence is-evidently trying to prove that the amount'of rake-off .was not more than sufficient' to-pay' for the liquid refreshments. The evidence Is similar In every waj to that adduced last Saturday when Beardsley was committed for being the keeper of the game. CENTS Number.

Taber Samples Highly Praised -Will Start Kiln 501000 Daily Capacity... MESSRS. FREAM AND QUINSEY ADDRESSED FOR WIDER MARKETS Dec. was a 'big turn-out of farmers here yesterday at a rally of the U. F. A. At noon din. ler was served, and afterwards speech -Taber, Dec. Manager Howard, of the Canada' West Coal Company, received, from bis office in Minneapolis, ..samples .of :brick made from .clay wjiicb is to. be found in the Canada West .mine. Some few months ago. Mr." Howard' conceived the idea that the.clay which abounds in the mine would make good brick and clay products, and he accordingly took the matter .up with the directors who siatedyithat If reports verified his opinion in regard to the possibilities for. making brick and other clay pro- ducts, that they would foe prepared o put In a plant with an equipment second to none in the west. He at once sent down a large quan- tity of the clay, and this was turned over to a brick factory in Ohio to experiment with. They made quite a number ot different styles of brick, md pronounced it the best brick that they had ever seen. To further strengthen the report of this com- pany, the directors gave a sample to v.muh a chemist in Minneapolis, who pro- is wereulclivcrcd by .1. C. M: nounccd it as being composed of all Mrons, vice-president of the U. F. A. essentials for making the best or Alberta, and E. J. Frcan, of Cal-! brick. This was more than pleasing gary, general secretary. The scuti-j.t" the directors who at once sent neat of nil tho speakers favored to .Mr. Howard that they 'would r markets and direct legislation. I start cousi-ruelion of the most mort- 1 ern plant in Western Canada. Mr. Howard states that the plant will have a capacity of bricks per day, if necessary, and that work 01 i- will start Immediately. This will mean the employment ol over three hundred men, and to ac comodate these, many new houses will have to he built. There are several samples of the different bricks on display at the Ca- nadian Bank of Commerce, and some HE HAS BOUGHT A FINE HERD HEREFORDS mm N One of the finest herd of beef cattle ever brought into this country has just, been brought in by John McD. Davidson, pi Ooaldalc, who is one of the most young farmers in Southern Alberta..' Mr. Davidson was a well -known stockman when he lived in Ihe-cast, but on west caught the fever, like everyone else and went in for exclusive grain ra'.s- j ing- He has found that the gctHrich- quick possibilities of grain raising are rather doubtful an.1 will return to the policy of having more than, one source of income on his, [arm. Mr. Davidson knows cattle like a book and he banks on the Hcrefords for beef-making, and says the herd he has imported will strmd comparison with any in the them in Saskatchewan from one of the best known Hereford stables in Can- ada and'.they ore certainly dandies. Tile-herd includes 25 head of cows, aged five years ten 2 year olds and eight yearlings. He has also bought twenty-one calves, of which thirteen are bulls. These he proposes to put on the market soon and give the farmers of this district a chance to get, .something classy at a moderate price. Jlr. Davidson's name as a farmer will give his judgment con- siderable weight and his example will doubtless bo followed by manv others.
