Cameron Expressed General Regret of Community in Great Loss The funeral of Hie late Alderman W. J. McCambly this afternoon was one of the most solemn and impressive in the history of the city. It was very largely attended, men in all walks of life being present to pay their respects to one who had always been a brother in very truth, a man among men. It was very noticeable that there were a large number of outsiders present, fellow members of lodges both in Calgary and Cran-brook. The attendance of private citizens was very large indeed, but besides, ,the procession was formed of many municipal and labor bodieas. In honor of their deceased colleague", the hearse was followed by the mayor and members of the city council, of which the deceased had. been a. member for three short weeks. In addition there were present in tile "line of march the city police department, in uniform, the local lodge of the Brotherhood of Firemen and Enginemen, of which the deceased was an old and valued member, the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, and the members of the local Trades and Labor Council. The funeral procession left the resi-dencel0n 6th St., S., at two o'clock headed by the Citizens Band, playing the Dead March in .Saul. As the long procession wound i,ts way to. Knox church, the,.streets, were.Jined ,on both sides by'citizens who .turned;; out to honor .their.; departed townsman whose loss is so;. Keenly felt. At the church w.here the funeral sermon was preached by Rev. A. Gr. Cameron, the minister referred in most fitting terms to the great loss suffered by the community, by the cutting off .in the very fullness of life of one who had given such promise of being able to do much for humanity. -, The deceased had always been an earnest man, who had won the confidence of the community by his very earnestness. He was looked up to and respected by -men in all walks of life. But a kind Providence had seen fit to remove him from our midst for a better reward in another life. The minister extended the sympathy of the whole community to the sorrowing loved ones who had been left behind by the removal of a true and faithful husband and a loving, father, i Interment was made in the public I cemetery, where many wept to pay ; their last respects. The. pall bearers were John P. Garrett,; Fred J. James, and James Perry, representing the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, and Alfred Killins, Edward R. McMahen and W. A. Kennedy representing the Brotherhood of Firemen and Enginemen.

BADLY HECKLED BRIAND GOT RATTLED AND WAS BADLY WORSTED-VOTE WAS ALL RIGHT Paris, Jan. 25.-No new ministry ever was so heckled by savage and Jish, the secretary of the federation, ! to address the meeting. This was given by President Tregillus, of the V. F. A., and he gatfe us to understand that the mattSBr of affiliation would be one of .that questions that would be beforej;he''-convention. He also suggested* tnal? be-th of us would have the floor to explain the purpose of the Alberta federation of labor on the understanding that we did not occupy too much time on account of the large number of matters that would be discussed. All In Favor Then "Mr. Tregillus aud Mr. Quinsey, with the other six ' delegates wine present during the' convention at which the Federation of Labor was organized in Lethbridge in June last, and all the delegates of the U. F. A. were heartily in favor of forming an Alberta Federation, ;;: "There-'is not;.-the slightest attempt on our part to 'capture' the U.F.A.'.', said Mr. Jones. "Our only desire is to adopt some ways and means of getting closer together where we can. come" to an understanding on common grjijiind, as we feel that in passing rtsqliitions at a conference without' havipg enough force behind them ,'dQ''hofc�serve any practical purpose.;."� i.y ' r"r want to state'%iat- I feel that .had 1 the promises, or -fee understanding which was given to me, been carried out, by granting the privilege of explaining-the -.purpose of the Alberta Federation of Labor, that the U.F. ,A., would have cqme to a thorough 'uride/standing of the great benefits accruing- by affiliation.;.. and it seems td;%e that it is only a matter of time when the United Farmers will be compelled, to deal with this question, and that they will resolve themselves to an'affiliation on common grounds, of all the wealth producers of this province which would enable us to present our demands with one solid front to the legislature." ; Mr. Stubbs Speaks Mr. Stubbs in expressing his view's said ; "In the first place I want to state very definitely that I hold no official or executive position with the AMhefta Federation of" Labor, and that my visit to Calgary on. this oc-cpSion is in connection with business affairs of my own organization. "True, I had anticipated from the promise given by President Tregillus of the U./ F. A., that I might some time during the convention be allowed to extend' to the delegates of the TJ; F.

AFFAIRS London, Jan. 25.-Alfred Smithers, chairman of the English board of directors of the Grand Trunk Railroad, gave out today the following statement regarding � reports of difference between the directors. "Mr. Chamberlain has repeatedly stated why the New England work was stopped at the commencement oi the winter, and will five every information. It is untrue that there have been any differences on the London board on any subject. On the contrary harmony has always and does now prevail. "I have not the slightest idea what the refusal of funds for the Pacific-Halifax line can possibly mean. As to having spent $18,000,000 0n the New England line the statement is absurd, as such ah amount greatly exceeds tho estimate for the line when completed." : dom permit of his doing so. ?

London, Jan. 25.-England started the New Year with a strike of the taxicab drivers, and if. the threats of the labor leaders are only partially carried out the present year will prove an even more serious one industrially than th-at which preceded it, Despite this the trade of the country likewise broke all records. While the taxi strike causes much inconvenience in the city, it is the disputes in the industrial districts that are creating the greatest, uneasiness. The coal trriners' of 'Wales, who were the hardest fighters in the last coal strike, are again restless, being dissatisfied with the award of the commissioner appointed under the act passed by parliament to end the last strike, fixing the minimum wage. A general conference is to be held to deal with the matter. It is certain that the owners will fight against any increase in the cost of production, as they have already lost to America contracts f�r the Italian government and Egyptian State rail ways, because of the high price at which they made tenders. Short of Money There are, however, two points against a general strike of the miners. The last struggle almost exhausted the funds of the unions, and under ah old agreement the miners' wages are increased as the contract price of coal is raised. As the price has gone up, the miners, in the north of England, at any rate, would probably be against another contest'with the owners. ' . Another serious trouble threatened is that arising from the agitation of the seamen and firemen for a sys-tematization of the rates and wages and conditions of service on board ship. The men, under the. leadership of Kaveloclc Wilson, have been agitating for this for years. They-have asked time and time again that a conciliation board be appointed by the owners and unions The card' room' workers also have, grievances against the .agreement^andfthey too have given the necessary-month's \nptice of withr drawal. .�'��'..; " ;�.'� � ' �� � fContinued ou paRc 9y..

Constantinople, Jan. 25.-A ftevere' earthquake shook the Turkish capital at an early hour this morning. No loss of life has been reported up to noon. State of Selge London, Jan. 25.-Constantinople is practically in a state of seige, according to despatches received today by the peace delegates of the allies. TAe young Turks fearing that the reins of power may again escape from their hands are said to be arresting their political adversaries right and left, searching houses and clubs and confiscating documents. They hope in this way to break-up the opposition. The allies expressed the opinion ("that under the circumstances any excess may be expected. With this, prospect in view the European powers are sending war vessels to reinforce the ordinary guard ships stationed at .Constantinople. � Italy especially is alarmed over thei return to power of the young Turks who were inexorable during the Lib-ian war. Djavld Bey, now head of the committee, of Union and Progress, declares that Turkey will fight in Tripoli as long as she possesses a soldier. - The position ot the 5,000 Italian residents of .Turkey-is.'now regarded tys^sQri precarious that Italy has des-'paftched to'Constantinople two cruisers and a gunboat prepared to land 500 bluejackets.

OF SIR EDWARD HOLDEN TALKS ON MONETARY CONDITIONS THROUGHOUT WORLD London, Jan. 25.-Sir Edward Hold-en, the famous banker, presiding at a meeting of the London City and Midland Bank, made some interesting re. marks on the. financial- situation in-C-airlous countries during the past! year, with special reference to the gold scarcity in England and the-United States.- He said, that in the United States deposits flowed freely from the western states to New i'ork' right up to the end of June, and from June were withdrawn again continuously right up to the middle cf December. Loans he said, showed a similar movement. . New security issues of the year 1912 amounted to $2,000,000,000,. according to Sir Edward,- and it might; be taken that the increase of ^old-would be about 7 per cent, ot the liabilities.
