The men demand that 48 hours' be a weeks' work, with a minimum of ?8.00 a weelr, or the penalty of striking. At present, it is said, there .are many cases of men working one hundred hours for $7.00. SPOKANE FLYER HIT THREE INSTANTLY KILLED AND TWO LIKELY TO DIE AS A R'ESOLT ASQUITH'S SUFFRAGETTES WILL START WAR PATH ? ? ? Martin, N.0., Jan. 27.-Jacob Helm and his two, sons were instantly ltili--ed,' Mrs. Helm and a'daughter probac bly fatally. Injured, and another dau^h ter and'a :MpheWUiMghtly  bruised when the Soo lin^.. Spokane iFlye?. \ struck a wagon-"in which they-" riding, at a grade crossing near here.' , . ... One of the Helm boys was driving, ipr0,] b t0 *bem Just before the crash. The slightly bruised daughter and the nephew jumped from the wagon. The vehicle was demolished, and .both horses killed".' The train was stopped and the dead and. Injured taken to the hospital at Anamoose. . Helm was one of the-wealthiest farmers in this section. A tempest in a tea cup has been raised by the statement that a farmer from out of town brought a quantity of produce to the*, city a few days ago, and was Joiced;t0,,take it home again, being unable Tto7sell" it, although it was stated he made futile attempts all day to do so.

Uranrct Forks m thp. innrninr  Thn spots, and unevenly � mixed, all Berlin,-Jan. 27.-Prince Henry of iPrussia is much disturbed by the: comparative scarcity of automobiles in Germany. He made the compari-; son this week that England had one j automobilp for every 249 inhabitants and France one for every 441, while Germany had one for every 927 only In his opinion this is largely due to excessive taxation in Germany, and he remarked that eleven years ago he had warned the Prussian minister of finance against too heavy taxation. The matter is important from the military point of view, as in case of war the-country able to requisition the most, automobiles would reap a decided advantage from that fact. Quebec, Jan. 27.-Details have been received of an almost incredible story of bestiality and crime. It occurred at Riviere Du Loup, below this city. The victim was the young wife of au I. C. R. employee, named Desjardins. He was in the habit of- entertaining friends each week-end and there was generally liquor in evidence. The story told is that during his absence last week-end, six of his friends went to his house, taking with- them a quantity of liquor and not only started a carousal, but gOt Mrs. Desjardins drunk as well. What happened then is unprintable. The husband on his return home found the body stuffed into an old apple barrel star'-nakeri with marks of the most fiendish brutality and outrage upon it. The woman was still living and able to give tlie names of her six assailants before she died. Her body had been slashed about, bitten, burned with cigars and otherwise mutilated. The priest sent for could not recognize her. Asquith Has Promised Bill Introduced by Private Member-Emmeline Pankhurst at Public Gathering Gdls on Women to Respond for Coming War DID FRED MAY FALL INTO THE RIVER? LUMBER CAMP - COOK MISSINC AND PEARS ARE FELT'AS TO CAL/SE Nelson, B.C., Jan. 27.-Fred May. copK- at a- 'lurnber.'.carnp, near Tag-hum, has disappeared, and is 'being searched,for by: the'.provincial! police. He left Nelflon -by irainc for. the camp, but got off at the first station, intend-lng to Walk, back to Nelson for a parcel he-had forgotteni The same availing cries were hoard by Frank-: -Ehilllps,' secretary of kthe miners' union; and it is feared May ''MV {Q'tl' thVt- railway bridge-,- while rousing, thp.

It was dot retail produce such as .would find a ready sale in the city. It will probably go to the camps'. Chickens may- be so dressed as to find a sale at all times. Then again, they may be so unattractive: that the meat markets will almost refuse to handle them. Dry picked chickens will bring a big premium over the other variety. Is There a "Market ? The manager smiled. The company during 1912 paid one- farmer  living not ten miles from the city a total of $12,000 in cash for produce supplied during the year. That farmer claims he can feed his wheat, and make it worth $1.25 per bushel. During the fall he bought up feed wheat at 32 cents per bushel. He will feed it and sell it for more than one dollar per bushel. This farmer has found ,a market.. ' '� ... There is not only a big local demand, :said tho manager, but, the der mand from tho Pass/"-towns is steadily increasing, and he claims- -tha't > the farmers, will bp able, to. sell all they can raise, and' sell. sit,, too,.:a't'.profi't-able figures, provided they study the market, and keep their produce ready �to go. on the market when-it it" not over-suplied. As -for the butter industry; rho claims that the creamery producb will always bring tlie best price, and tlie sooner tho farmers or ihe. government -take steps to. build creameries, thus taking the buttermaking ''away" from the -individual- farmers, the 'bet-; will be, arid,the� sooner:.

LET THERE BE NO CONTEST FOR SEAT FEELING CITY SHOULD NOT BE PUT TO EXPENSE OF BYE-ELECTION (Special to the Herald) i Carmangay, Jan. 27.-The - Bhort course school in agriculture opeped here at 1,30 o'clock this afternoon under auspices which, could: hardly-have been more favorable. - -..v. Thes, finest sample of Southern Alberta weather was soryed up and farmers and ranchers were here in large numbers for the opening season. Headed by the Carmangay band a procession formed on the main, street/and marched, to the big - tent, where > the lectures and judging of horses ^commenced. Professor Carlyle gave, the opening address, his subject-; pedug'1 ithe Percheron horse. The ranchers took a deep interest in the professor's remarks.and the judging of animals was followed with critical, eye, The attendance was; most pleasing for the opening day and there will likely be large erpwds throughout the week. On Wednesday night there.will be a big meeting at which Hon. Duncan Marshall and Dr. Tory are billed to speak. * - , The Women's institute ia meeting iriv'Buckloy's -hall and the opening lecture' was given by Miss Stevens. There .was "also 'a-good attendance, at this mooting. At a special meelng of the city council to be (held next Friday afternoon, arrangements will be made- for the election of an alderinan to fill the vacancy caused by the death of the late Aid. W. J. McCambly. It is expected that 'the date of the election will be set for late in February. So far, there has' been very little street talk of possible candidates, the general opinion being' that as the candidate elected will hold office for the remainder of the-y.^ar only, the election should go by acclamation. Louis Keel was the: high man on the list of defeated candidates at the December election, and. many are anxious that he should be.elected by acclamation? No other, possible candidates haye as yet,been! named. It is understood that the' ratepayers whom the electors of the south side. might desire to place in the-seat without the necessity of an election.

'.- A YOUNG B1SHC;P Charlottetown, rP.B.I.V'Jan 27.-Rev. Henry O'Leary,Bishop., of. Bathu'rst, N.B.f has,' ;been ' appointed Roman Catholic-Bishop of Prince Edward-Island, lie is Only thlrty-onu years old. He was 'e'ducatert 'at '>M6ntreal and in th^ Canadian College at Rome. London, Jan. 27.-The precincts of of the House of Commons presented many of the features of a well defined encampment when the House met this afternoon, being to a conclusion the current chapter of thtf work for the enfranchisement of women. Mounted and foot police were everywhere in great strength. Two thousand patrolmen and 100 mounted men were on duty while reserves were hidden In convenient yards ready to pounce on suffragettes if attempt were made to brea kthe peace. After the speakers ruling it was only a Question whether the cabinet would announce its capitulation before or after the vote had been taken on Sir Edward Grey's amendment. The amendment called for the omission of the word "male" and thus practically introduced adult suffrage. At the opening of todays session Premier ' Asquith asked the speaker to state again in more definite form that if any of the women's amendments weit :arried, the franchise bill would become substantially a new bill and would have to be withdrawn. Mr. Asquith announced the cabinet would not prolong the discussion urider-the circumstances but would -drop.the bill. The government, he added, within the life-time of the present parliament, would proceed with bills dealing'with electoral reform and plural votingi:. Premier Asquith repudiated-the-sugr gestion that the government^ had been' guilty of sharp practice regarding tdie* question of woman suffrage; He declared members of the cabinet had honestly endeavored to carry out their pledge to challenge a decision from the house on woman suffrage. The government, he continuerd, had now pledged itsself to give to'-a woman suffrage, bill, to be introduced by a private member next session, the same facilities as it had given to tihe oontrocersible government, measure, allowing members complete freedom to vote in accordance with thefr individual predilection. Those suffragettes who had be$n admitted into the outer lobby of the House of Commons and those in tlie vicinity of the house took the- rebuff to their (hopes with ominous quiet. 11 The outer lobby was" safely guarded by lines of police so as to prevent any possibility of the; women break' ing in and the inner sanctum wa^ crowded with representatives of var^ ioua suffrage societies but there was no demonstration when Premier Asquith' sannouncement became known, Mrs. Emmellne Pankhurst and hev sister militants, will hold a meeting tonight to decide their coarse of ba> tion. Tihe great display of poHce effect* ually dampened any projected out� breaks on the open space fronting the House of Parliament. Hundreds of women, many carry* ing sandwich boards advertising the views of rival organizations for and against woman suffrage, were swept back from parliament square to- the adjoining streets and barriers of sturdy policemen effectually closed all the approaches to the House of Commons. _ ' ' War to the Knife After the government decision had become known Mrs. Pankhurst stated that the women could not accept for a moment the suggestion of a private member's' bill. She added: "Unless we are told that we are having a government measure giving equal voting rights to men and wo-mep. or that the so-called suffragist ministers have resigned, our duty immediately is to resume militancy." A declaration of guerella warfare by the - suffragettes including sorties  and riots to-begin at once was made by-:Mrs.. "Kmrneline- PankhursT., the militant leader, at-a meeting this evening. , Mrs. Pankhurst called-for the names and addresses of those who wfere . "prepared to take part in the gallant onslaught." The suffragette leader declared that there were many women who were prepared to endanger their lives in the cause. Mrs. Annie Kenny, who has been prominent in the manoeuvres of the militants, added that the women would "make the lives of public men impossible," and, replying to an interrupter, said, "If,' you are a shopkeeper you had better look out. It is not Just your windows which ar* going to be attacked, it is something else. We are going to get this question settled once for all."' Many, shops immediately began to hoard up their windows.
