Settle your difficulties here and then hack and let every man do his full share in building up this union until the time will come when no man shall mine coal in this country unless he belongs to -the un- ion. This was my dream, my ambi- tion, it is my dearest wish. What concerns me now is not the possibil- ity of going to prison. T am con- c'ernod abc-ut this union. A GLOOMY PROSPECT.

The Lethbringe Hockey team met their Waterloo at Macieod last night by the small margin of The game is said to be one of the most sensational ever witnessed in that town. Both teams put up a better class of hockey than they did on the occasion, of 'their previous meeting and Lethbridge. JMacIeod's line-up was a. new one in many respects. Lethbridge also had a changed team. Mar.leod worked in a ringer who did a great dea.l of efTeotive work and figured largely in their victory. He went under the name of Lee but his real name is said to be Bawlf. The usual number or penalties were- paid by both -teams for occasional roughness. Xone of the players were- hurt ser- iously however. Murphy scored Macleod's first goal four minutes after play commenced, by a long shot from centre. Ten min utes later his team, through Bawlf, alias Lee, scored the next, after Loe, who lagged offside throughout the game, stopped the puck, which had been shot from the Macleod goal to the opposite end and shot it into the net. Cook soon after scored one for Lethbridge and in a short while deliv ered another of the same kind after a pretty run up the ice. making the score a tie. The excitement of the large crowd of spectators at this time grew great and at. .three minutes from half time when Macleod teami scored another .coal, cheered their team to the echo. At half time the score stood in Macleod's The second half was oven a i-elter exhibition than the- first. The teams played with great determination end checked each other hard. Lethbridge tied the score by a pass from Sin- clair to Matheson. who cleverly sccr- ed. Mack-od eight minutes after- wards took the lead again by anoth- er goal. Shortly afterwards McGillis went through the Macleod defence with the puck and scored. Both sides were playing with equal ability within five minutes of J'ull time and it appeared as if the game would end a tie. However a ininute afterwards Macleod rushed the puck up to the Lethbridge g-oal and, des- Edmonton. Alta.. Jan. proposals which the Rutherford Gov- ernment have made to us are entire- ly satisfactory, and the .C.N.R. are perfectly willing to proceed with the construction of branch lines through- out the province in accordance with the -agreement said D.

In the party were the general manager, Mr. Maeleod, and Col. Davidson, Commissioner for the Crown Lands. When asked what line the company intended to build Mr. Mann said that he considered that the Government should an- nounce what lines they wanted built. "However." he said, "among the iirst to be constructed under the pres- ent agreement will be the branch to Calgary and one to Athabasca Land- Miner Suicides At Michel B. C. (Special to The Herald.)

HE TURNED TABLES ON BORDEN Ottawa, Jan. sessional floodgates of political' eloquence were flung wide open in the Commons to- day. The opening debate of -the ses- brought a heavy outpouring of charges and counter-charges which have been simmering since the elec- tions. The debate was ostensibly ,on the address in reply to the .speech from the throne, but as usual, the discus, sion got.far away from the subjects mentioned in the speech, and ran the whole -.gamut of political issues. Op- headed hy Messrs. Bordeh and Foster, evidently felt called upon to explain just why it happened that they were' still .in opposition, but the attempt proved disastrous. The moral of the election campaign was evidently, lost on them, and the charges, they made against the Gov- ernment today only served to bring more trouble on: their heads. Mr. Bordeh's charge of -wholesale bribery by the'Government, and repetition of the charge that the Conservatives were not responsible for the "duty of the hour' most ef- fectively met- by Sir Wilfrid. He pointed out that Mr. Borden had car- ried British Columbia largely ori the strength of a telegram sent to the Victoria Colonist, and used by the Conservative candidates to give the Opposition leaders' declaration in fa. vor of the absolute exclusion of ali Asiatics. Mr. Borden declared that the telegram published by the Colon- ist was a fabrication, and Sir Wil- frid reiterated that consequently the Conservative members from British Columbia were holding their seats as a.result of deliberate fabrication and misrepresentation. As to the famous "duty of the hour" pamphlet it was pointed out that it was used every- where in the case of Opposition can- didates. W. F. Todd, Charlotte, in moving the address, uttered a ploa for Gov- ernment aid for agriculture, lumber- ing and fishing industries in bad years. J. P. Turcotte, Quebec coun- ty, speaking in French, paid a high tribute to fiarl Grey for his services n connection with the tercentenary. ;
