I learned that Southern Alberta had a considerably milder climate than most places of the same latitude, and while real cold for short periods, is partic- ularly pleasant most of the-time and very healthful; that the soil is most excellent, producing unusually good crops of the finest quality with rea- sonably good fanning; that the drouths are not as damaging as in the majority of wheat growing reg- ions, and may b'e more easily coun- teracted majorit; We are bere to stay and build our nest 1 accordingly.

The apeal was from a judgment of Judge MacDonald on the trial of an inter- pleader Issue which found that the sum of paid into the court by the Canadian White Co. was the prop- erty of the respondents. The issue de- cided was the relationship existing be- tween the appellant and the respond- ent company and whether or not he was an independent sub-contractor or a mere servant of that company in do- ing certain work on the bridges. The courts below held that he was a ser- vant or an agent of'the MacDonald Mc- Millan Co., and that the contract he if the Great Northern, or any other large railroad, were doing the work it made with the Canadian White Co. was for the benefit of his employers. would be done in less than one supreme court affirms this view.
