"We itiiy feel proud that we have ' at, the prea^nt.tlwe," said Rev. T. P. Perry, "the cleanest city we have ever had.*' Rev, A. G. Cameron concurred In this statement, and most of the members of the council were inclined to say "Amen." , "I'll do whatever the. council in-Mi'iicts ine to do in the matter," said. Chief Davis, who was called in to the consultation. He was asked repeatedly what he thought of segregation as ngaihst non-segregation, and every tinio "he advanced the Same answer. WILLIAM'R.

He was perfectly satisfied to give the chief of policy a free harijd'. Rev,. Mr. Cameron said he was glad to seeithat ChietlDavis had got action and clfeancd out'the. district. He had studied* reports from vice, commissions iiu other cities larger than Leth-bridge-, �ad it was shown clearly in these reports that segregation did not segregate, and that segregation was no more protection to' a commuc ity than non-segregation. He would be satisfied to Ieawe matters. a� they stand. Mayor Hardie came in, and.he told, of his trials because of the vice.

The reason of this can, no doubt, be traced to I/resent economic conditions which are such that the farmers have been forced to rush their grain to the market as soon as it is threshed in order to meet their obligations, and until some method is devised whereby this kiLd of thing can be prevented, it Is possible that conditions similar to those which prevailed during the past few hlpnths will hate to be faced again in future seasons.

"That the conditions under .which an elevator could be erected at any point would be l"or the, farmers in that district to subscribe for Sufficient stock to build an elevator and for the subscribers to have an annual crop average of -,000 acres for each 10,000 bushels of elevator capacity.

IS INSPIRED E Remarkable Precautions Against Attack on Lives of the Cabinet Ministers London, Jan. -Extraordinary precautions are being taken by the police and the government authorities' iu anticipation of a further frenzied outburst of violence on the part of militant suffragettes, expected after the defeat of Sir Edward Meyer's amendment to the franchise registration bill on Friday. At Scotland Yard tho gravest fears are entertained and an anonymous warning sent to the home ofTice has given rise to great alarm. The lives of cabinet ministers have been threatened and these threats ate regarded with so much seriousness that the precautions taken by the oolico are almost without a parallel. "It is all very well for the leaders to talk about human life being sacred, but the peril lies in the individual action, of women who, even if sane, are highly hysterical." This is the comment of a leading police official who has charge of the special force to deal with tho expected outrages., EVery cabinet minister is being closely guarded. When Mr. Asqulth left the House ot Commons last night two automobiles containing detectives followed the premier's car to' its destination. Other ministers who walked the short distance to their official residences were followed by a small retinue of plain clothes men. A typical example of the way the loaders of the government are guarded is shown iu the case of Augustine Birrell. Mr. Birrell frequently passes through the passage under the New Bridge street to the underground railway. At the ticket office one evening recently he asked for "South Kensington, first class, single." Two smartly dressed young men, apparently strangers to each other, made the saliie request. One entered the carriage and sat beside the Irish chief secretary, the other following. Both occupied seats within a foot, of him, and all three seemed oblivious of the presence of each of the two othei;s, but all the whole the two officers carefully watched every person near their charge. These proceedings occur daily. Whatever the militants intend to do next is a secret well kept. "It will he war 'with a vengeance," said one leader today, adding that she. was prepartd to die to advance the cause. "We are not Tool?,' she continued.- ''-We mean to havn the vote, and if We do not got it, then the time will come when our opponents will be. glad'to offer it. V\ hut has gone before will seem mere at child's play comparted with what, is to come. In the old'days when war had been declared, beacons blazed In every shire.

The plot is that ot a young man seeking a position in a climate more suitable to his health, and although of ,q;pod breeding,, applies at a ranch for a job as a cow-puncher, which he secures. A Mexican, who is intensely jealous of him, owing- to the mutual aftection existing between the ranchowner's daughter and the young cowboy, plans vengeance upon the pair. During a cattle raid of a gang o'" Mexicans whom he has joined, he gets his opportunity, and after rendering the girl's lover helpless, and apparently dead, he compels the girl to accompany him bi.'-k lo the insurrector's camp, where she hecomes a prisoner, to await the villain's intentions. However, before he gets the opportunity to harm the girl, something happens. Just what is better shown in the films as they unravel, than mere words can tell. This is said to be a masterpiece ot western dramatists, not only 'in originality or plot, but in photography as well. This special film will be shown today and tomorrow only, and lovers of sensation are sure to find a treat awaiting them.
