A. M. Grace, JUonald Duff, civil engineers, and A. E. Jdumphries, the commission appointed ;two weeks ago to investigate the con- struction of the race track at the new fair grounds, was received by the city council and adopted by it last nrglii AS intimated'in-the Herald on .the: day the report was received in'1'the city, ovces, it was a complete exoneration of City Engineer Arnold against whom tnere had been a number of veiled criticisms in connection with the mat- ter. The report read: The Report "We, the committee appointed to investigate the construction of' a speedway at Henderson Park, have gone carefully over the ground and nave studied the elevations and cross sections in the office of the city en- gineer with the "view of determining whether or not any money has been wasted on account ot certain changes which must be made to make the track meet the requirements of the expert race course men. "We have no (hesitation in savin j that the track must be changed to put it in the proper form and in pro- per condition. When these changes are made we are confident that you wiu hax-e the very 'best possible kind of a race course and that the oval track included within the boundaries of the track proper will be perfectly I level' apd in I'ine shape for either 'a grass" plot or for use in games or sports oi' any character. "This will cost some money and Trill no doubt be slightly in excess. of the cost would nave been had this form of track been contemplated before any work was done, but the excess cost will be so slight and the amount so little in -dollars and cents, it seems to us to be of too little-conse- quence to take into consideration.

One man had wounds upon the face and head, Dut his race also showed same symptoms, as did those the others who had not Deeu wounded. The, doctor was subjected to quite an ex- tended cross examination at the hands of Mr. Macitie, who wished to learn of him the distinction, if any, between ueath from the effects of carbon un- oxide and death from carbon dioxide, out the witness did not care to go so lar into these questions, claiming lack of personal experience in such mat- ters. Ke-exammed by .Mr. Campbell, he stated that a gas explosion might be caused .by friction of large bodies of; mnty rocKs falling in a mine, but fire, an intense heat must be present to cause an explosion such as had occur- red. Asited by Campbell If it were possible that a large" cave-in or fall of rock might liberate a hidden body of gas which, though lighter than air jnlght be drawn downward by this suction caused by the falling rock and tnen come in contact with the sparks or heat and cause an explosion, the doctor "answered that it might but he could not oe positive upon such a point.

He understood there was some dispute as to wheth- er there any specific agreement upon' the part ol the city to devote the whole proceeds of the sale to the new grounds, but thought they should endeavor to make the latter superior to any in the province. Acting-Mayor Replies In reply to the disputation Acting- Mayor Bowman said he felt that all j members Oi the counc.il had the inter- est of the society at heart.

Phone 543 the investigation of the causes which ftad led to that explosion and said he would not consider any evidence which might he adduced upon thai point, juryman Burnett also rose and stated that he coulci not give an un- prejudiced verdict upon the causes of tne explosion. Some time was taken up Dy arguments of counsel upon this unprecedented situation and the cor- oner finally adjourned tne sitting to 1.30 p.m. in order to give time for con- sideration. Attorney Campbell 'at once got ousy in an. effort to get in touch. 'with. Attorney General .Mitchell at .Edmonton., but when the session resumed' at the appointed' hour, ito word had come from Edmonton and a second adjournment of one hour was taken. At the end of the second wait Mr. Campbell had still failed to get in. touch with his chief. A second ef- lort to untangle the tangle proved as -the first; the foreman still rerused to consider any evidence tend- ing to establish the cause .of an ex- plosion in a mine, saying he had not understood or heard that portion of tne oath -lie took when it was read to him. Mr. Campbell was willing to proceed with the case trusting to the honesty and integrity of the jurymen, out Attorney Mackie objected, unless the other attorneys would agree to confine the evidence- to the fact that the men were killed in the explosion, leaving the facts as to the causes which produced the explosion, to be investigated by some other tribunal, but to this Mr. Campbell replied that he could not consent to splitting the evidence to a second investigation. To this Mr. jtfacxie replied that if the toreman would retract the statement mat 'Jie would not consider evidence relating to the cause of the explosion, he would be willing to take chances upon the other jurymen changing his mind as the investigation proceeded, but as the foreman flatly refused to reconsider his statement he, as attor- ney for the miners, must flatly refuse to'go on producing evidence before a judge who had rendered his decision in advance. To allow of further efforts to get Instructions from Edmonton, Coroner f inkney ,upon motion of Mr. Mackie adjourned tne sitting to seven o'clock in the evening. Tne attorneys in the case are act- ing in a perfectly friendly manner, and evince a desire to have the pro- ceedings take the widest possible scope in order that air the facts ,'jear- ins in any way upon the case may be brought to light. This feeling is also snown to the full extent by both mine workers and operators present. MAGRATH TEACHER HAS RESIGNED Magrath, Dec. Mr. Hess Heath.- brother of. G. .W. Heather- ,shaw, implement and.
