The first time t cnino across the antl- * American feeling was when 1 started to have some land that I had purchased surveyed.

Then 1 had trouble a Uttle later about one of my titles nnd 1 placed the matter in the hands of en American Inwyen, the only lawyer, by the way, who seemed to Know anything aixiut law in that country at that time. 1 was told that I wouid have to employ a Canadian or Fnghshman tefore t could get a hear in? before -thv? commissioner, as my own lawyer would not be allow^ij to practice there.

"I have been greatly amused at tho surprise expressed by the American people over 'the recent action of Governor Swectenhnm of Jamaica. In his conduct toward Admiral Davis If those who are so wrought up over tho governor's unti-American feeling had lived on a borderland between this country and a llrltlsh colony as long as 1 haw they would not be at all surprised. It Just happened that tho world was looking that way when the governor expressed him -self, so the matter attracted att�-n -tion� hut nearly every British official that I haw come across In the past made feel at home. Now Mr. Floyd makes two charges that prove him to be on ignoramus. Does ha not know; thnt n Canadian transacting business in tho VniWd States conKl not employ a Canadian lawyer any more than an American cou\i employ an American lawyer in Canada. The same is the case w i th tho surveyor. Canada compels lawyers and doctors and dentists and surveyors to pass certain examtna -tions before they can practice their professions. The reason >is, we wont to keep the Stanford of the professions up to prevent any Tom, Pick or Harry 'hanging out a sh'ngle as a d jctor or lawyer. Cncle Sam.

From one authoritative source he that while the Britisn Columbia mines and smelters were crippled by lack of fuel. 1.000 empty freight cars stocd in the C.P.R.' yards in Winnipeg and 310 empty ears in the yards at.

The cars were available but could Tho city council had a difficult task put up to them on Monday when they had to select a city engineer from two such capable am) experienced applicants as A. M.

However, it Speaking of tho effect o*the severe wintor on thj cattle industry In Alberta, P. Burns of Calgary, said that as far as his firm is concerned th�re would be no loss of stock, as they were all under feed during the extremely cold weather. There Is bound to be a certain amount of loss every winter where cattle aro not proi>erly looked after. Ho considered that tine loss of stock* was greatly exaggerated and would be found to le not oVer 25 per cent, of what was exacted. People got excited when th-3 cold weather lasted such an unusually long time and imagined their losses were heavier thnn they will actually he found to ie. The present mild weather will put life into cattle and restore tho industry to its normal condition.
