In Medicine Hat It is learned on good authority that Chambers and his companion were in Pdedicine Hat last Monday, and that enemies were cashed there on that day. Whether the pair will make a bolt for the other side of the line, Is not known, but the authorities are on a sharp look out, and will persistently track their man, no matter where he may go. Chambers is worth getting hold, of and no stone will be left unturned until he is /placed safely behind the bars. If Krank Hastien continues r>n his joyful way he will have, appeared he-fore all t.iin 'justices, ,iiic1ri-h and rnagist rales in the country before lie nn-ishes his little visit, to the Provincial .fail. One year ;x;o last September Bastion assaulted a man at Macleod. .J1.1d.17> Carpenter sent him down for one year. in March the prisoner took ;t sachay into the wilds. He was recaptured and Magistrate Hail lacked three months to the sentence. Later in the summer lie assaulted one of the jail guards and this time Inspector West soaked him a month. In October Hastien, who was then working on a road crew, took to the tall timbers again. For two months he lived in supreme happiness with bin native brothers on the. Blood Reserve. The day after Christmas lie was arrested by Detective Ashe in his home teepee and this afWnoon he was arraigned berore Magistrate K-lton and received his fourth sen-fence on his original on:; ycr term. This time he rrot thirty divs, which will let him out about the end or" March. A Woman in the Case It appears that there was a woman In company with Chambers. This much la learned through Mr. Hcbert-son, of the Robartson Co. Chambers and the woman, who,.by the nay, was well dressed, gave one the impression that they were newly married, as the lady assumed a bashful attitude at times.

ON BANKS ROSEATE REPORT DID LAND OFFICE BUSINESS AND RESERVE LARGELY EXCEEDS SUBSCRIBED CAPITAL London, Jan. 15.-Today's meeting of the ambassadors of the. powers was devoted chiefly to a discussion of the means of putting a brake on the threatened resumption of I ho war in the Balkans. Breathing time was I .'.riven for efforts in this direction by the decision of the Balkan plenipotentiaries today to delay further ac- J Lion until the Turkish unvernment has had full opportunity for the discussion of the ambassador's note, which will be presented this week. It is evident that both sides would welcome the discovery of an acceptable I wJiy to avoid further fighting. The ! Turkish delegates' argue but for the fact that the Kuropean powers have shown bias in favor of the claims put forward hy the allies thev would have been able to compromise with their adversaries long atao. The delegates of the allies deny thai the powers have raised an objection to their announced intention of breaking: off negotiations and denouncing the armistice. They point out t hat on Saturday last they, notified the British Foreign Minister and all the European ambassadors of their intention and none of them remonstrated. The representatives of Bulgaria, Greece and Servia declare.that they will protect their own interests, especially in avoid'n? indefnite procrastination on the port of the TurVs as since the conclusion of the armistice, in December the maintenance of the four allies armies on & war footing has represented ftn outlay of $200,000,000. This must, come to an end, they say. Within a week Turkey must either cede Adr'anople in a peaceful manner or lose it by a resumption of the war, which in the end would he less costly than this expensive peace.

When this last debate has been concluded, which must be >by tomorrow night, the measure will be passed to the House of Lords, where its rejection is a foregone conclusion, Public interest in the Heme Rule question is manifested by the great demand for seats on this occasion.

"ARSON TRUST" IS BEING EXPOSED TWO MEN CHARGED WITH COLLECTING HALF MILLION THROUGH INCENDIARY FIRES New York, Jan. 15.-George Grutz, an insurance brokn\ and a second man, said also to be an insurance broker, whose name was withheld, were indicted cn charges of arson yesterday by the grand jury that has be;n investigating the so-called arson trust, alleged to be responsible for more than three hundred fires in the past two years, Hi which, about ?500,-000 insurance was fraudulently collected. At Starland With today's entire change of programme at Starland, many new and pleasing features will be introduced. Foremost on the bill is a two-reel Parisian romance, entitled "Love's Sacrifice," an exquisite portrayal of a powerful and appealing theme. It will prove to be a most acceptable and artistic offering for the mid-week. On the same programme will also be shown another of the highly amusing Keystone comedies, entitled "At Coney Island," a farce funny enough to bring tears of joy to a pair of glass eyes, [t is one long scream of merriment, and is one of the most uproarious laugh producers of the season. "How the Ranger Was Cured" is a spirited Western story, crammed full of exciting incidents, and rich in dramatic surprises and healthy thrills. With another'amusing comedy "The Grocery Clevk'k Romance," and the latest copy of the popular Warwick Weekly Gazette on the hill, the whole programme leaves little to be desired.   "The Rosary" "The Rosary," Rowland and Clifford's theatrical success, which will be seen at the Majestic next Friday and Saturday, tells a story of a modern Garden of Eden, in which the serpent enters in the form of a rejected' suitor, who 'wrecks the home and happiness of a married couple by playing, upon the - jealousy of the hushand. There is diffused throughout the drama' a remarkable air of purity, faith and hope from the opening scene which pictures the happy couple about to celebrate their second marriage anniversary, and surrounded by all the creature comforts of modern civilization, to the last act when the twain, broken in health and fortune, and wrecked by jealousy, come like two weary children to the feet of the old priest; who has fathered them throughout their troubles. In the days of their prosperity they had built a chapel for their old friend the priest, and in their adversity they come back to the little edifice one Sunday morning, just as the chimes send their music rolling through the valley. The .story is interestingly told, and with a capable cast aiid scenic effects, the production is said to be worth attending. MATINEE EVERY DAY WE ARE FIRST WITH THE LATEST J. B..
