Js a good deal of speculation in financial circles as to what changes are likely to fol- low in the Bank of Montreal owing to the death of the president, Sir George Drummond. It Is generally believed that Sir Edward Clouston, the present vice-president and general manager, will be appointed president in succession to Drummond, but whe- ther he will retain the general man- agership or not is problematical. In the event of his relinquishing the gen- eral managership, it is expected that H. Vincent Meredith, the present lo- cal manager, will be come general manager and that Mr. Stavert will be appointed assistant general manager. BATTLE FOUGHT IN HONDURAS Opposed Having Fairs Association Delegates Accept Dr. Tory's Invitation To Visit University Grounds Edmonton, Feb. Tory, presi- Managua, Nicaragua. Feb. hundred insurgents under General Mfitnes have captured Boaco. a. town sixty miles east of Managua. The fighting lasted two hours but the cas- ualties are not known here. The town was defended by seventy- five government soldiers led by Col. Barquero. The latter were surround- ed but fought their way through the insurgents' linos, the survivors reach- ing the niiiin body of the government army at Tuostcpe. The fighting took place yesterday. The insurgents are advancing in three columns, with mi aggregate force of one thousand men. President Madris is confident that Hie advance he chocked at Tip- dent of the University, invited the delegates to Strathcona to look over the university grounds. The invita- tion was merely a courtesy and Dr. Tory had no idea of Its being con- strued in any other light. It seemed, however, that Geo. Hoadley, M. P. P. for Okotoks. one of the two straight Conservative members-elect of the legislature, conceived the Idea that Dr. Tory was attempting to rope the convention of farmers into an expres- sion of approval or the pkicing of the Agricultural College in conjunction with the university. "I do not think it he said, "for this convent- tion of representative farmers of the province to accept the invitation in view of the present situation in re- gard to the Agricultural College." A resolution to the effect that the con- vention accept the courteous invita- tion luid, however, been drafted, and the chairman, Jas. Ran, of Medicine Hat. called for a show of hands. The motion was carried by an indifferent majority, which needless to say was not very gratifying to Dr. Tory. He rose to say that the invitation been extended in perfect good faith and with no idea of committing thc- convention to any approval of any- thing. He wished merely to show the farmers the work the university was doing and to get some idea from i SOME OUTSIDE CAMPAIGN WORK lows: "That all the words after the word 'that1 b? left out and the following substituted .therefore: "The proposals of the government do not follow the suggestions and recommendations of the admiralty in so far as they em- power the government to withhold the naval forces of Canada from those of the Empire in time of War are ill advised and dangerous.
