Borden's naval policy was not one that would appeal to the loyal ami that, Laurier's idea would, was tlie principal point in a trenchant speech aelircred tonight 'by Hon. Frank Oli- ver, Minister of the Interior in Laur- iov's administration. Hig main at- tack on Harden's policy was that it was non-constructive, and, therefore, not a nava'. policy ,-tt all. it had no foundation, and did not propose to build up a Canadian ;navy, but simply to hand money to the Old Country. Borden'e supporters and himself ar- gued that Canada is not yet ready to maintain and man a navy. There are fishermen on the Atlantic and the speaker argued that on ihe strength of those, Canada could' maintain ami man a navy, Of course, Canada have to pay a rate for tlieir services, bul so ability was concerned these fishermen arc equal to any nation in the world.! today, to the police throughout country Sandy hair and moustache.

Twoli- ly-three horses suffocated. Loss I about well insured. The above are the latest pictures cf some of Canada's Commoners, who are scheduled to talk in the Naval the hottest question since Confederation. The debate will probably be quite protracted. Speaking at Montreal and Ferguc respectively on January 6th, Messrs. Guthrte and Lem- iev spoke of necessity of submitting ihe question to the people fn general elections. This 3s regarded as sitjnificent of the intention of the Opposition in the Commonia ricbate. HOPELESSLY BEATEN ONES WILL BE TRANSFERRED TO THE RED CHAMBER Ottawa, Jan. is understood that it is practically settled that Dr. H, B. Munro, of Saskatoon, will be of the new senators from Saskatche- wan. A Saskatchewan deputation was in the city and uuiiuc! On mem- bers of the government to press Dr. Munro's claims, this ap- pointment was almost certain. The southern appointment tween U. 3, Lake, ex-M.P., and H.'W. Laird, with the chances -favcThig the former. The appointments will not be made until the bill before the House is passed. There vacancies in Business Men Suggest That In- ducements Should Be Made to Secure It Reports of tiie destruction by fire of the P. I3urns' plant at Calgary, have set tho business men of Leth- bridge linking, and it is likely that an-agitation will be started to endea- vor to have tho Alberta millionaire cattle king erect a plant in Leth- bridge. So far the city council has said nothing about such-a move, as they have not yet got to u-e point where an Industrial policy has come up for consideration. However, several members pf the Board of Trade have spoken of tho possibility of the Burns' Co. fng a plant fn Southern Alberta, and It is likely that the council will bo aflkotf to make representations to the head ot the company on h'm return .sary, asking him to consider the'erec- tion of a plant here. During the past year the Board of Trade has at different times been in communication with some of the large packing companies, but alwtya receiv. ed the same answer: that Southern Albret does net yet produce enough live stock to warrant the expenditure necessary to build a plant here- How- ever, through the efforts of the board a large number of farm era. have tak- en up the hog industry, and it Is esti- mated that next year there wfi] be hogs raised in what is com- monly known as Southern Alberta, with Lcthbridge ae the central point. The burning of tho Burns' abattoir Great Interest is Shown Department Officials Highly Pleased HON. MR. MARSHALL Minister Doing Much for Farnv ers Will be There Friday Night at Calgary many of the towns along the Pass to look else- where for their meat supply for some time to come, and Lethbridge io be- ing looked to for at least a portion of this supply, although the Burns' plaJit at Vancouver win be called on to meet most of the demand. The fact remains, however, that the ing camps through the in southeastern British Coiumibia are large meat -ftnrl it seems logical that they should Icok to Southern Al- berta for their supply. During the past year there has been a general revival of the live stock: in- dustry in the south, and thoae mem- bers of the Board of Trade who have the matter in hand, believe that the, cffy council should lose no time in communicating with. Mr.' Burns, and making him an offer" which would in- duce him to locate a-plant hore. At present Alberta's leading millionaire has over worth of property in the city, and this should cause him to look on the city's r.equest with some degree of favor. By having two plants he would only suffer 50 per cent, of loss in the event of another fire. GOES OVER UNTIL SPRING Hamilton, Out., Jan. to the absence from the city ovor thr week-end of J. J.

The lectures were- very Instructive and "were followed closely by the students. In the large, warm tent, F. S. Jacobs, of Calgary, known ivldely as a journalist, as well as an export borae judge dilated on tho Pw- cheron horse, treating hie topic terse- ly, lucidly nnd comprehensively. Sev- eral fine stallions and brood marts were examined and judged, the stud- ents scoring. 1 The domestic science school attract- ed ui unusual amount of attention and the lecture ball 'was crowded to its greatest capacity. Miss Stevens and her able assistant, won this hearts oC tueir Htur.iBuis lite y-ho were present are enthusiastic ov- er the splendid course.

A Park Ranger Frozen to Death Cards ton, .Tfin. to deaUi in the Glazier National Park, just south of the boundary, was the fate of Criince, a ranger, well known here. Crimce belonged to the park force, and wrtth two others was "moving camp." The and the long tramp through the snow ceems to have overcome him, and he souk exhausted. His two companions teft tho upper chamber, which is Is expect-1 him and pushed on for help, Crlmce ed will be tilted at once. to aialte no effort to move on after he had rested a while.
