McCAW VE HUNDRED MILES OFF TRAIL Surveying Party on Jaunt in the Almost Unknown Part Alberta's Hinterland Edmonton, Jan. 11.-Five hundred tulles off the beaten trails, north of �he 55th parallel, where time tables lose their terrors and men do things because they want to do them, Was The region penetrated by .1. B. Graham, D. L. S., of Vancouver, D. C, and a party of IS engineers and help* uly a few Indian trappers after getting into the heart o� the wilderness," said E. O. Wood, a member of the party, "but everywhere we noticed tracks of big game and saw large uum hers of all kinds of l'urJbearing animals. However, we killed only wiiat we needed in camp. We might have brought out some fine heads, but this was a surveying expedition-not a big game hunt." The party was dispatched by the federal government to block out a tract of land 170 square miles in area, north and west of the Police Coupe district. One. hundred sections of �;4,U00 acres of this will be set aside for purchased . homestead purposes. Seventy sections will be for pre-emption. Mr. Graham said that in all probability the. government will have the last named tract 'ready for preemption next spring. The land is described as being well located in the rolling prairie country, � lose to the foothills pf the Rocky .Mountains, about 230 ml lea west, of the town of Dunvogan, It is well covered with small poplar, eaBlly cleared and has many flats. Indications of coal were numerous and there are many outcropping* of iron. Should the two minerals be found together, the country would 'be destined in the near future to become One of much industrial activity. Members of the surveying party report that climatic conditions were agreeable, though.the absence of snow and the unseasonably high temperatures made freighting over the government and other trails a difficult task. The surveyors left the north country on December 1, and arrived at Tremeley's ranch, ill the Pouce Coupe district after two weeks of steady traveling. After a 'brief rest and securing fresh horses they pushed across the prairies to Bdson, 130 miles west of Edmonton, where they boarded a train for the capital city.

This 'was decided recently at a meeting of the directors in Toronto, where the bank haB its headquarters. The announcement was made in Edmonton by C T. de la Plant, manager of the brandh at Calgary. The manager of the Edmonton branch has not yet been appointed, but it is intimated that he wijl be a man from the ranks, selected because of his experience and 'abilliy. It is expected that the appointment will be formally announced in February or March when the ofltcial will come to Edmonton to acquaint himself with conditions in the . capital and central Alberta. The quarters will 'be equipped with modern furnishings. There will be some changes made to the interior of the building, but, it will only, mean moving into a building . which has been -used'for such a purpose the last fifteen years. The ground is well located on the south side of Jaspei aveii'ie, between Queens and McDoug-all avenues and directly opposite.the branch of the Bank of Commerce. The Standard Bank has been endeavoring for some time to open a brauch in Edmonton, but nothing definite 'was done until it was learned that the Northern Crown' Bank had plana to move to a new building. G-. M. Schofield, general manager of the bank, came to Edmonton from Toronto several months ago to look over the field. H� was so much Impressed with the possibilities that he laid the matter before the directors with the foregoing result. The first efforts to locate in Edmonton were made a year ago by G. C. Perkins, formerly of Calgary, now manager of the branch at Vancouver, B. C, but no suitable location couid be secured at that time and negotiations were stopped.

Mcintyre, Chairnitm of the Ontario Railway Board, and retiring president Of the Oddfellqws' Relief association, was tendered a banquet by tho directors' association at theFron-tenaCx hotel, Kingston, and presented with ,11 gold watch and chain rvnd illuminated address. Toronto, Jan. 11.-'the King Edward i~Memorial, the million-dollar fund for the care of consumptives, has been raised. The million includes, $400,000 already subscribed, $200,000 voted by Toronto ratepayers and the $400,000 which the trustees undertook to raise. The full $400,000 has been promised, and itiore, too, said a trustee in speaking of the fund; More than half of the city grant will go to liquidate a debt of $104,000 on new buildings at Weston replacing those destroyed by fire. The millioh-doilar fund will permit the trustees to properly care for 400 patients of Weston and Graven-hurst. The trustees who spoke to the Globe said the association could use all the money sent in even though the memorial had been raised. Speaking of the generous response of the friends d'f the work, also the vote of the ratepayers on New Year's Day, the trustees mentioned several special sunis which had been given. Perhaps the largest individual amount was one hundred thousand dollars from one who has been a leader in the fight against the whjte plague, and is still acjtive in the work. Counsel for Rev. J. J.

Will Have to Pay Miss Callard for Failing to Marry Her (W. A. P. report.) Calgary, Jan. 11.-The largest verdict ever given in a breach of promise case in Alberta or the Dominion of Canada, $25,000, was awarded by a jury this afternoon to Miss Louise Callard, 27 years of age, a young school teacher at Nanton, who was suing Martin James Armstrong, owner of the Nanton Valley Ranch, for failure to keep his promise to marry her. The trial which consumed five days was fiercely fought and the verdict caused great surprise here because of its magnitude. It Is understood that Armstrong will appeal on Che grounds that the court, in summing up the evidence" misdirected the jury. had built all hopes on being taken into the city WEATHER TOO WET - FOR THE ROADS didn't reach normal amount of good roads work in ontario Toronto, Jan. 11.-The. amount of road construction in the provihce last, year under the highway improvement act,. according to estimates by W. A. Maclean, provincial engineer of highways, is something below normal; The principal reason for the falling off In mileage, Mr. Maclean states,; is the continued wst weather, which prevented the county organizations from getting to work. In all about 200 miles of road 'were constructed! The mileage varies from year to year, but in 1911 about 250 miles were completed. A great deal of work that was commenced last year,remains unfinished. Tho total expenditure on road construction was about $750,000, and of this amount $250,000 went into York county roads. In 1911 the expenditure waB $650,000, with very little going into York county. Last year a considerable sraount of money went into bridges, so it Will be seen that- the actual amount of road construction was well below normal. In addition to the wet weather having a marked effect, Mr. Maclean expressed the opinion that the decreased mileage reflected in some measure the disappointment Of-the county authorities In not receiving- any of the proposed federal grant, and .'when this Is available there is no doubt that there will .be a great impetus all over the province, and many counties will participate in the good roads scheme as well as those already engaged in extending their work. Stafford is in a gloom at present owing to the 1913 council turning down the Village of Stafford's request to be annexed to ttfs city.' The 1913 Council hail, whilst prepaxiup the new charter,' made provision to include the Village of Stafford, having received a petition from the ratepayers in the early part ot the year. 1912 for this. They had given this their attention. Now, at the last moment the new council has completely shattered their fondest hopes of being a part of the City of Leth-bridge. This is not the. Worst part of the deal, as the city intends to extend its boundaries so as to ta'tc in the adjoining lands to the village, and leave the village as it now stands. The people in Stafford havp received a blow, which, they never for one moment anticipated, from the 1913 council. Despite the cold weather now prevailing,- on Friday night a number of friends gathered at the home of Mr. Robert Moodie (Galbraith St.), in honor of Mr. Andrew Mcyes, who laft on the midnight train tor Scotland. Dancing and songs were the order of the evening, finishing up with singing, "For he's a jollv good fellow," and "Auld Lang S}>ne-" "Will ye no come back again." Refreshments were served throughout the evening. It was, in the words of some of the guests, "a dandy time." The stork paid a visit to the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Trofanerko, and brought a fine bouncing boy to their home ; and also to the home oE Mr. and Mrs. J. Luciano, Cralbraitli St., No. 47, a daughter.
