Likely to Get One / of Them (Western Associated Preee) -Fort William, Ont, Jan. 30.-An Important announcement is to be made in a few days affecting the grain business of farmers of Alberta and Saskatchewan. It is as good as settled that the 'Dominion government will, at an early date, proceed., to establish a very ex-tensive system of International ele'^ vatbra at central points In Alberta, Saskatchewan and possibly in Manitoba. Mr. Staples,, >one of the Grain Comraission�i'&, ha�-jb$,en very active In the matter; anl'has impreflsed upon the government the Imperative need for immediate action. The embargo announced by the ahle to give about four-fold^ the .presents service.

Privy Council De-. cidesAgainstPeople (Continued from front page) By another statute passed at the same time, any person claiming to �have �suffered, loss or damage, in consequence of the passing; of suob act might submit its claim to the government. The Lord Chancellor went on to cite the steps subsequently ta^en in the legal proceedings. following the claim for damages by the, appelant bank. Continuing, he said:'  "Their lordships are not concerned with i the merits of the political controversy which gave riBe to the statute whose validity is now impeached. The Legislature's Power.....

"If this were the only question which arose, the appeal could be disposed of without idlfftoulty, buf the Aot, under consideration, does more than modify existing legislation. It purports to appropriate to the prov inoe a balance standing at special accounts in the banks, and so change its position under the scheme to carry, out what bondholders had. subscribed their money.'' 1 i "Elaborately: :as^-tb,e':.;c)afl&^:.was; ar gued-4n the judgments "of learned Judges in courts below," went on the I%d Chancellor, "their lordshiDB were not satisfied that what appears tp'them to be the fundamental'que?-tioa *t issue has 1 been adequately considered.

"The statute was on this ground beyond the power of the Legislature of Alberta, inasmuch as what was sought and had been enacted was neither confined to property and civil rights within the province, nor directed solely tp matters of a merely local or private nature within it. 'Other questions," continued the Lord Chancellor, "have been, as already stated, raised in this appeal, as to whether the statute of 1910 infringes the provisions of section 91 of the British North America Act, by attempting to deal with a question relating to the banking, and by entrenching on a field already occupied by the Dominion Banking . Act. It was also contended that the approprl-aion of deposits to the general revenue- of the province was outside the powers assigned to the provincial legislature for raising revenue for provincial purposes. The conclusions already arrived at, make it unnecessary for their lordships to enter on a consideration of these questions, and of other points made during the arguments of counsel. "Tho Coui-t will advise His �Majesty," concluded the Lord Chancellor, "that the appeal should be allowed and the action dismissed. Tho respondents (the province of Alberta) may pay costs here and in the court below." M.E BYRNES COUINGWGDD HENRY T. REASON LONDON License Applications Heard Today (Continued from front page).

Work For Many Men Of the new huilding uudsrtakcn last year, and uncompleted at the end 0f the year, the post office and the browory addition are the largest. On the new,post office close to $200,,000 will be spent during 1913.

The Market Sete North. Lothbridge is up in arms because C. J. Eck&torm is desirous of establishing a market on the Athletic Park, and asks the endorsation of the council. Their objection to the market came to a head- today when J. Gilmore; A. Johnston, and W.. P. J.
