Oliver's survey of public lands, and to amend the irrigation act. Several clauses of the former not disposed of when the bill was dealt with were put through with little discussion and the bill .given second and third readings. The Irrigation Bill proved a more contentious measure, and did not get beyond the explanatory stage. During recess Mr. Oliver added several clauses which were discussed before Christmas and had the bill reprinted. The clause for the' protection of municipalities provoked considerable discussion. The minister explained that he had secured an opinion from the department of justice that as the consent of municipalities was necessary to permit construction, it was within their rights to dictate such terms as would adequately protect them and the object of the clause was to limit the rights of irrigation companies when they conflicted with municipal control " of any arrangements. McCarthy, Calgary. Borden and others criticised the bill. The former referred to the recommendations made by the union of Alberta municipalities, which met at Red Deer, in cose of municipal - boundaries as to include the district in which work had commenced. Hon. Oliver was inclined to think .municipalities could provide, for that in making their original arrangements with irrigation companies. Hon. Oliver said it might be a serious matter to interfere too much with some large irrigation projects now under way. He thought the clause as framed would meet present' requirements. No immediate difficulty was in sight and it might be well to wait and see the trend of circumstances before doing any more. Mr. McCarthy expressed the opinion that tho bill should not be proceeded with until the minister had further communication with the Alberta union of-"municipalities. He quoted a letter from the secretary of that body to show that it considered the legislation suggested did not meet all requirements. An j entirely .new bill was suggested, and it was particularly important that Boyertown, Pa., Jan. 14.-Rhowds opera house was destroyed by Tire tonight, and it is estimated that 150 people were burned to death. A tank used in connection with the moving pictures .exploded, and a terrible stampede at once ensued. The theatre was crowded with people at an entertainment given- by the St. John Lutheran Sunday school and hundreds of women and children were in the audience. The people on the stags tried to stop the panic, but their efforts were in vain. Coal oil lamps were used for foot-lights and (ably short time these were up3et in ths mad rush of j opera house wa the people. They at once set firs to the building. The flames rushed up to the ceiling. Many women and children were trampled to death. Entire families went to daath together. The fire apparatus failed and the building v.-as given over to the flames. and readied that the bodies were being roasted in the ruins. One woman became'insane when she realized that she alone of her family was left alive. How many were killed may never be .known, for among the victims of this awful disaster, were a number of visitors and* soma strangers. The list of known dead is as follows: Mrs. John Booker and two children; Dr. Charles Mayer and daughter; Robert Lapish; child of Rev. A. M. Weber. When the explosion occurred some one yelled, "Fire," and in a remark-tho conter of the a blazing furnace. !
