TEDDY SHOWS THEM HOW TO DO IT President Takes Long Ride On Horse- back ,FAVOR CHURCH UNION. Lyndon, Ont., Jan. Presbyterians yonterday adopted" a motion in fuvor of organic union. AV'ashiagton, Jan. Roosevelt rode, ninety-eight miles o: horse inick today and when he dis mounted at the White House door more than seventeen, hour's after hav- ing departed therefrom, he did no show any marked sign.s of weariness The object of his ride in the saddle he explained to a reporter of th Associated Press after- to "prove to the critics who have found fault with recent orders requir mg all army and navy- officers to take physical that if the president who is not'in training, can ride nine ty miles in one day without being laid up in bed. thereby it should nd be "too much to ask the men who are supposed to be in the of physi- cal training all the time, to ride nine- ty- three days." Both the 'outward and return trips lay through Fairfax Courthouse to Warrenton. In less than an after return- ing to the White House, the President had changed his ice-coated clothing for evening dress and appeared in the dining room ready for as hearty meal As he-Jias eaten for a long time. EDMONTON'S BOAST. Edmonton, Jan. charges for electric lights are very low-, compared with other Canadian cities, but it is not generally known that the people of the city are pay- .iag a lower pries than those of any Bother city in Canada, as far as the records can show., with the only ex- ception of. Ottawa, where they have ii water power plant. First Shipment By Western Route "Winnipeg, Man., Jan. first "big" shipment 01 grain under the C. -P. R.'s through tariA" is now en route to Liverpool. It left Calgary Satur- day and loaded this week in the Pacific coast steamers and start- ed on the long- trip over the western ocean. Owing to the lower through tariff, has .'given the Canadian road a decided advantage over com- petitors across the line which are re- stricted by the interstate commece laws, the C. P. R.- can handle the much qheaper than the Ameri- can roads and it is claimed with the low ocean rates at the Pacific coast', the production of the Western provinces can be transported more economically that way. The ship- .raent _en route1 is a sort of test and if-successful may mean a big ad- van'tage in shipping- to the eastern .route. FOUND GUILTY, Montreal, "Jan.

Calgary, ALBERTA LEGISLATURE OPENS AT EDMONTON Speech From the Throne Foreshadows Important Legislation Including Railway Measures, Redistribution and Election Act (Special to The Herald.) Edmonton, Jan. fourth session of the-Alberta Legislature was opened by Lieut .-Governor Bulyea RATE FOR The announcement 'that Inspector, Shaw, of the Calgary' K.K.W.M.P., is to be transferred to Coutts, "-has been received with general regret at the barracks, where he is very popu- lar- among the men, as well as a large number of friends in the city. Coutts i? a small station on-the A. 1. Railway., and is. .situated -the 'between Alberta and Montana. Inspector Shaw will have charge of several detachments along the border. The speech from the throne was as Mr- Speaker and Gentlemen of the Legislative Assembly: It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the fourth session ot the Legislature of the Province of Alberta EXaTEMENT AT RAYMOND School Was On Fire and the Children Were Badly Frightened Raymond, .Jan. 11-. Shortly after School call this morning a spark the chimney caught on the roof. Mr. J. T. Anderson was pusstnjr, ky and saw the fire and called out Fiic." The pupils rushed .out and there was great excitement. When, they got out and saw the fire they rushed back for their hooks and coats and there was urtber excitement. Mr. Baker, the Principal, rushed- to the roof and put snow on the lire. The Tire Engine came but the fire was. nearly out when they arrived. The children standing: by were very Tightened, and without wraps, got rery cold, and faces. over to the stores and their wraps Many had frozen hands The children aken over to them. More was done by cold than fire. The schoolhouse was not >burned 'cry much.- in 31r. Smith's oom and around the chimney. Much credit must be given' Mr. Cour Recent Disasters. Our thanks are due to Providence for the increasing prosperity of the province, and for its exemption from material disasters. Our sympathy has been evoked during the year by the terrible forest fires in the neighboring Province of British Col- umbia marked especially by the de- struction oi the city of Fernie, and our admiration has been equally evok- ud by the firmness with( which that catastrophe has been met. The re- cent earthquake in Italy calls for our heartfelt sympathy, and is an awful reminder of our 'mortal state, j Peace Reigns. The continuation of .peace within and without the Empire, is a matter for sincere gratitude and, I trust that the wisdom of those in "control of af- fairs may preserve inviolate. The year has been marked by the celebration of the three hundredth anniversary of the landing of Champ- lain, in the St. The festivities at Quebec, honored as they were by the gracious pres- ence of" the heir-apparent, were, of course, primarily of a Canadian and Imperial character. They served, however, to emphasize the good un- derstanding between the Mother Country of the two races to which our Dominion mainly owes its set- tlement, as well as ther, fact that within the division botween those races hasV-ceased to exist. The relation -with the United States showjsS. continued improvement and a dearer on each aide of the line to cemenCthe friend- ship so necessarv to botfil." BUSI- NESS PHONES. The Herald was in error yesterday in stating that the rate for business telephones had been reduced from to The old rate was and it has been reduced to j enable them to be placed and kept iu healthy surroundings in foster homes on farms or elsewhere under indenture. 1 trust that such provision will have a beneficial effect on a class that ii> assured of our most careful attention.

Jan. is generally understood that G. H. Mclntyre, M.P. for South Perth, will succeed Marcil M.P., Boaaventure, as Deputy Speaker of the House of Commons when the latter moves up to the Speaker's chair.. The names ;of Senators J. of Toronto; V. Ellis, of St. John, and Finlay .Young. of Manitoba, ,are mentioned for the Speakership of the Senate. .rT I COL DENISON IS WORRIED Great Britain Needs To Treat Canada Better Than It Does at Washington, the TURKEY ACCEPTS. Constantinople. Jan. The Tuik- ish .accepts the Austro- Hujigarian, offer in- demnity for the annexation of Bos- nia and Herzegovina, thus removing every possi of war. .London, Jan- T. Benson, of Toronto, writes to the Standard with reference to Groat Britain's loss of prestige in Canada in the last sep- tennium. The feeling is general in Canada that Canadian blood was she.i in South Africa in sacrifice to aid the empire, vwhich is too feebly- governed to profit by such loyal de- votion. If Britain does not soon re- ciprocate by a preference or at least .take "measures-, to protect herself from impending disaster, Canada may be induced to play her own business game. i ne good .Ambassador Eight Honorable James Bryce, have been of the greatest service in this regard. An invitation ;has been is- sued to Jus Excellency the Governor- General and to the Right Honorable Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and has been accepted by them, to take part-1 in the conference for the preservation of the natural resources of the contin- ent, which is to be held at Washing- ton, which should _be fraught with valuable, results with respect to our .forests, water powers "and minerals. In commercial and agricultural af- tairs the "year" has -beea the gradual" restoration of normal conditions, and by a. bountiful har- vest. The prosperity oi the fanners and their renewed ability to meet payments, have at once been reflect- ed in the financial condition of the commercial and in an im- rpulse to the flow of immigration. Transportation Facilities. The great problem of transporta- tion, facilities has been receiving most serious consideration of -my Government. I In the vast country to the norUt of us, all its1 "agricultural and min- eral possibilities, and in the mining and xvheat-producng districts of the south, the province has two assets of which the value can only be guess- ed xintil they have been penetrated and traversed by railways. The south country is, already tap- ped, but it needs and will -need, as time goes on, an increasing mea- sure, more and more arteries throug which its riches can' flow. The north has ntit at present single line, 'and without a line it i to.-fmeasure the vastnes of its future. Several bills will "be submitted fo your my G eminent to assist the railway deve! opment of the country. Both north and south will be foun> to be cared for in the bills present ed. The already' existing facilitie in the centre of the province will be very considerably supplemented. Municipal The municipal requirements the province, in so far as the cities are concerned, have been heretofore met by special charters. But i appears desirable that provision should be made for uniformity in this respect. -A bill will be pre- sented to you with this end in view Redistribution. My Government will submit to you two bills dealing with the constitu- tion oi this House. A bill respect- ing the Legislative Assembly pro- vides for an increase in the number of the representatives corresponding to the increase in the population oi the country, and enabling the people more., accurately and readily .to give expression to their wishes. The ne- cessary proposals as to the redistri- bution of seats have been framed carefully with these ends in view. An Election election bill Bill. substitutes To Buy Out -i" 4.

Indians Want Money Back Ont.. .Tan. depu- tation of Six-Xation Indian chiefs has gone to Otcawo to press a claim for the sum of 8150.000, which was s Invested by Imperial axithorities in the year 1834 in Grand River Navi- gation Company. Money' belonged to and the invest- ment turned .out to be "a total loss. 'Desccndents of chiefs, whoso money it is, said it was wasted in early days, and claim the amount as rightfully thcirs. The case may ultimatelv go to courts. more in line with the new provincial life than were provided by the ter- ordinance, which worked suf- ficiently well "in a sparsely "settled country, but die machinery of which was unsuited to modern conditions. The bill is based on a system pro- viding for the registration of voters. A careful review of the existing pro- vincial Acts has resulted in the com- pilation of 'a measure which it is thought embodies the best features of all, and will, I trust, meet with your unanimous approval. To Protect Children. A bill will be submitted to you'en- titled "A Children's Protection Bill." Experience has shown that with the gro-vuh of population oi the province' there is an increasing need for care and watchfulness in this regard. The bill will "give powers to take charge of children who have offended against the laws, or are in danger of being thrown into this position, and will vided that the care and maintenance of the insane should not be thrown entirely on the public, but that the estate of the patient should contri- bute equitably. This policy has to some extent been earned out, but it has been hampered by the lack of an official guardian, and the ne- cessity of applying to the courts for the appointment of a guardian hi each case, thus involving the estate and "the province in unnecessary legal expenses. An amendment 10 the Act concern- ing insane persons will be presented! to you, appointing the Attorney-Gen- eral official guardian of the estates of such thus enabling him economically to carry out his present discretionary powers. Legislation embodying other neces- sary amendments to the statute law of the province will also be laid be- fore The" public accounts and estimates will be laid before you at an early date. AN.

This is the. farewell message of a man who at the Queen's Hotel here yesterday as Al- bert E. H. Mann, whose dead body1 was found this morning with a bot- tle of carbolic acid lying near. The name given is evidently an alias, and it is thought that -the deceased has recently been released from New Westminster Upon the photograph a handsome woman lying near were the words in pencil, "This is the only woman in' the for me. EL G." The name of the girl, written in another hand- writing, is Helene Mokros, while ,the J photo was taken at the Atelier Apoi- lo, Breslau. The deceased registered at -the Queen's on Tuesday evening from New Westminster. He had no baggage, paid for his room in ad- vance, and bought himself a glass of beer with what is thought to have baen his last coin in the world. All marks had been removed from his clothing.
