Dr. Elliott rang'iip 'i'e night, operator at Wolseley,-anil silo promptly telephoned to Mr. Taylor's neighbors to go to the doctor's asislance. At a Jjite hour this afternoon, Mrs. Pox was out of danger, ami Mr. Taylor and his eldest, toy hud rallied ; somewhat, but Hobhic. the youngest '� hoy, had' not regained consciousness. informed of Although the'rtrmok, hasibeen' efrr-rg^t .ort, ,the street to^*y Uiat Frank liad experienced another, slide, this time on the north peak \of Turtle Mountain, the Herald has been able to get a flat denial of the story. The management of the Sanitoriuni Hotel at Frank stat'e.d over.the long distance telephone that there was absolutely no foundation to the rumor. As the report sppread, it began to take j on color, and the last story heard by the Herald man was of a bright yellow hue. It said that the slide was worse than the slide which made Frank famous, that three houses with their occupants had been swept away, and that a large number of empty houses in the condemned district'had been buried underneath an avalanche of rock and snow. Tho origin of the story is a mystery. Austria, on the other hand, js understood to be opposed to the annexation of any of the Aegean Islands by the allies, but it is inconceivable that even Austria can contemplate uk- possibility of Turkey resuming possession ol these Christian islands, am! turning loose upon them, the purely Asia-tic troops which are now assembled in Constantinople. In this, matter Creat. Britain may take a hand, in virtue of the power of her fleet at present in the Mediterranean, and if sh,. llCl,8 probably other powers will follow. War, it would seem, can only i)0 avoided if the Powers are agreed upon a line of action. Here is a shu-v.d test for the conference of smbs.^,!. dors now meeting at the For; -m 0;. i'ice^. Is there any one policy npon which all of these ambassador j,c>0 ^ a chance of preventing the renewal of the war; but, if not, then the war will surely break out afresh.

The figures are as i'oilows : Births ..... Marriages Deaths .... 1911. 312 a 10 197 1012 301 388 202 710 791 It will be observed that the number oi births during 1911 was somewhat in excess oi those registered duritig last year, nut this is explained by the fact that the foreign element do not at- times register births. There is no way of ascertaining the returns under such conditions.,- Marriages show a decided increase during 1912, while the death rate is only slightly advanced.

Mellen, president of. the New York,' New Haven and Hartford R.R. Co.; A. R. Smithers, chairman, and Edison J. Chamberlain, president of the Grand Trunk R.R. of Canada, on all the indictments found against them recently for a breach of the Sherinan anti-trust law. It is intended to put down the case for trial on the February term calendar. Before that, time other indictments may be found against some of the directors of the two roads. The determination of the government to hurry the trial of the raiiroad men as quickly as possible, came out �today when Mr. Mellon and Mr. Chamberlain were called on to plead in the court to other indictments. John D. Lindsey, v.lio apppeared as counsel for them, requested Judge Houghton to grant them an additional week in which to decide on lb-sir course of action. District-Attorney Guiler opposed the extension of time, on the ground that the government was anxious to proceed with the trial. Judge Houghton interrupted Mr. Guiler to ppoint cut that it was not. possible to 'place Mr. Melleu and Mr. Cnamberlain on trial immediately without upsetting the entire Fsderal Court calendar year. Consequeully hc grantod the week's delay asked for . - Mr'. Guiler explained that the government hoped to get to trial in February.

Voting on the question of local option took place yesterday in 100 Ontario municipalities and returns received indicate a signal victory for the temperance element, both by carrying the bylayv on a straight vote and defeating repeal contests brought on by, opponents of the measure. A ]2>rge number of places polled majorities in favor of the jet, but the three-fifths requirement will prevent them becoming law. (Continued on Pags 9.) Washington, .Ian. 7.-What.
