He demonstrated it at the Eepublican convention. Mr. and Mrs. Longworth were seat- ed in the front row on the platform.

Y., June With nothing to protect him but a j cork life preserver George Powell, a one armed Buffalo man this afternoon swam the Devil's Hole rapids and on to Lewiston. He coveted the two and one half miles in thirty-five minutes. This is a feat which has been perform- ed only twice before. Powell entered the water at the flat rock just below the whirlpool and swam directly to the middle of the river. At the turn below the whirlpool Powell made a desperate struggle to keep above the water. At one time he disappeared for sixty seconds. Passing the lower refused in tones that sent the ther mometer down ten degrees', At this point Nicholas intervened. He leaned forward and said, ti5.u octtcr take uu your hat. my dear."

Frank Oliver's- western land bill and when adjournment came, just before mid- night some seventy of the one hun- dred and two clauses of the bill had been passed through committee with the endorsement of the Opposition. The bill, -while of large importance to the West, involves few points of general interest and the attendance was small and the debate of unusual quiet- character. An illuminative feature of the dis- cussion of the bill this year is the apparent eagerness with, which, the Oposition is going back on its policy j of last year with respect to the pre- emption clauses of the bill. Last session the gentleman, on the speak- er's left, "strenuously oposed the bill as involving a discrimination in fa- vor of new as against old settlers. This year with the pre-emption area restricted to the two newer provinces the trend of criticism from the Op- position side was that the area had been unduly restricted. Hon. Frank Oliver gave notice of an amendment extending the area a little in the northeast and west, so as to make it more symmetrical. The increased area will include three and four" million acres'. Consideration of the bill will be resumed on Monday. LETHBRIDGE GIRLS AT THE FRONT Hazleton.

Maple Creek, June serious accident occurred near here today. A young man named Bailey Horton was the victim, while plowing for Henry i Hassett, three miles south of town, i An electric storm was raging at the time, and Horton was struck by lightning. He was badly burned all down the right side. He was brought to the hospital in town and little hope is entertained for his recovery. Horton is an Englishman and has no friends in this country. Two other men rounding up cattle were also struck "Out not seriously hurt. Raleigh, N. C., June sign- ing of the prohibition proclamation by Gov. Glenn was made the occasion of elaborate and interesting exercises. Gov. Glenn signed the proclamation, announcing the vote as reported be-j fore, and said it was the happiest day of his life and the most important document ever signed by a governor. The pen used was presented to Presi- dent Clarkson, the chair to Chairman Oates and the silver inkstand to J.E. Pegram, secretary of the Anti-Saloon League. The opening prayer was made by the Rev.

Ram Lai's Pure Tea Sold by all Grocers in Half and One Lb, Packets and 1, 3 and 5 Ib. Tins Boston, June at the failure tji Lhe republican national convention to follow his full page dis- play advertised advice and nominate Roosevelt, Thomas W. Lawson today guaranteed to raise to fi- nance the Democratic campaign, but with this trifling condition: Johnson must get the nomination and Bryan must be content to take second place. This offer was made in a letter to Mr. Bryan today, in which Mr. Law- son said: "The sum total of Roosevelt's work was but to put the people in better condition for the same old seats at the galley oars." Mr. Lawson speaks of "professional feeders at the public crib" with an insolence which would cause the Roman Claudius to turn in bis grave, and refers to the super- ior scheming of President Roosevelt whom the people have lifted to a'dic- tatorship so supreme that he has just chosen his successor against the will of the people. He says that "owing to a peculiar combination of condi- tions and after a thorough canvas of the entire country it will be impos- sible in my opinion for you to be elected. If you accept in thc spirit of a self-sacrificing patriot the nom- ination for vice-president this one act of yours will wipe out the insult put upon the- people last Thursday and will bring about.a revival of hope- in the breasts of the people." The reports of Havergal College published in the Winnipeg papers show that the Lethbridge students swept the examinations and captured the prizes in practically every depart- ment. These clever girls are Misses Edna and Etta Henderson, daughters cf Mayor Henderson, and Miss Gladys Downer, daughter of Mr. F. Downer. Miss Edna Henderson took the gen- eral proficiency prize in Part 1 ma- triculation besides taking hei part 1 matriculation to Manitoba uni- versity. She took also the boarders scholarship of presented by E. L. Drewery. In athletics she took the Drewery cup for gymnastics and sec- ond prize for tennis. Miss Etta Henderson won the' gen- eral proficiency prize in Form 6 (Part II matriculation) besides passing her second part of matriculation to Man- itoba university. The first prize for tennis went to her. Miss Gladys Downer was' success- ful in getting the Form V general pro- ficiency prize and first class honors in the Toronto College of Music'piano competition for pupils of Havergal. The Herald congratulates the young ladies on their brilliant successes. Ben James today sent an exhibit of his prize-winning oats to the Domin- ion Fair. LORD STRATHCONA RESCUED THE TIMES True Story of Mr. Pearson's Failure to Get the Great Newspaper Comes to Light London, June appears that the retention of the Times in the hands of the Walters family, who have so successfully directed up- times for the past century and is due directly to the good offices of Lord Strathcona and Mount Royal. When the first hitch in the Pearson negotiations was nade evident, Lord Strathcona, who had signified his willingness to take stock in the new company, seeing that the difficulty was not one likely to be easily set- tled, made overtures through a third party with the object of saving the paper from the hands of the minor ity of shareholders who were dissat- isfied with the dividends received, and intimated in this way his will- ingness to guarantee a sum sufficient to satisfy the claims of the latter and ensure the payment of a dividend to that prior to the advent of the Times Book Club. The ultimate failure of Mr. Pearson to raise sufficient confidence in the shape of hard cash and reasonable conditions of transfer made Lord Strathcona's task all the more easy. When Mr. Walters came forward with his final fresh capital, the offer made by a friend and coming from the High Commissioner for Canada prov- ed most acceptable, and though the source from which the requisite help came was not made known to any save those most intimately concerned it was none the less keenly appreciat- ed. At the present time, it is stated, Lord Strathcona holds a controlling interest in the ordinary stock of the Times. Yet his cash guarantee was made absolutely without any condi- tions, save that the paper should con- tinue the same policy in regard to foreign affairs that had characterized it in the past, and should give the same impartial and full attention to colonial affairs.

Test it n. few days and be convinced. Sold by J. J. Johnston. the annual meeting in London, .of Alberta" Land 'iv tion. system near Medicine Hat, the president, in his address, made the following remarks which will be of in terest in. this district: "You may have noticed that some comment was, made ia Canada on .the favorable terms granted to us but I I think that people in Canada hardly appreciated the magnitude the work we have undertaken; er did they appreciate the fact that our success, though it may mean large profits for our shareholders, means much larger profits for Cana- da, and especially for the province of Alberta. In according us fair and generous terms the Government have, in my opinion, shown both foresight and business ability; at any rate, they have got us to put our shoulder to the wheel and we may expect great interesting developments nefore us. "As regard the development of our estate, some shareholders may be dis- appointed that our progress has been so slow, but from my knowledge of irrigation generally I know it is very easy to make slight mistakes at thc beginning, and such mistakes, per- haps amount-trier to an error, in sur- veying, if only a few feet, may mean such huge penalties that your board nave adopted the most difficult, but 1 urn sure the .safest and wisest, pol- icy of going'slow and sure at the in having all schemes and reports most Carefully checked up- Mr. McGregor selected Mr. Grace who has already made o, great rep- utation as an irrigation engineer m Western America and in Canada es- pecially at thc Alberta Irrigation Cunifany's works arid i may say than the patience arid thoroughness shown by Loth Mr. McGregor and Mr, Grace have certainly won our con- fidence, and I am sure will equally win yours. It would have been mnc.h easier for them to have adopted one of thc many schemes reported feas- ible, and made a hurried start. In-, stead of this, as soon as they more or loss decided they set out to sec could im- prove on it, result thnt, though, had to show pa- on behalf of the board T. must Ihiink the shareholders for tne patience they have you may feel satisfied that the scheme before us is a great on those originally considered, and one which should prove of great value to the company. After all, genii timeii, a. great undertaking like this, cannot be unduly hurried. We have a estate, situated in a which probably enjoys the best climate in Canada. We know that the land is extremely -fertile, and that with irri- gation it will give extraordinary re- suits and command very great pric- es. When I say we know the land is fertile, it is because, as- Mr. McGre- gor tell you, the company has been running an experimental farm with great success. We shall not need to tell farmers we think this or that can. be done; we can show them the results that have actually been accomplished. There is no conjuring trick required to irrigate these lands; it is merely a question of how much it will cost to put water on them, and the cheaper we can do it the grea- ter will be our profit, Messrs. Mc- Gregor and Grace were therefore ful- ly justified, in our opinion, in mak- ing certain of the cost, etc., before they embarked on the expenditure of the necessary sum. The size of our estate will probably surprise some shareholders. It is practically 600 square than twice the size of the whole county of Middle- sex and nearly as large as the whole of Surrey. If you proposed to irri- i gate the county of Surrey the mag- nitude of your work would probably alarm you, cause you to hesi- tate until you were quite certain, not merely that you solved the prob Jem, but that you had found the best solution'. Though our estate 5n Sou- thern Alberta is nearly as big as Sur rey, there is a difference in its population. Surrey has nearly 000 inhabitants but our Southern Al bcrta estate has practically not one. Yet, onco it is irrigated, it f-n.n only be a question of time hundreds JUKI thousands wiil settled on these lands, and and industries will spring up. Dry Farming ADDRESSES Addresses on the principles under- lying farming under semi-arid condi- tions, explaining particularly what is known as "Dry will, be given under the auspices of the De- partment, of Agriculture and the local Agricultural Societies as follows: PLACES June Hat, at 2 p.m. June June June bridge June Creek June June June June River June June Sir Wilfrid Laurier May Make West ern Tour With Bourassa on His Tracks Toronto, June despatch ceived by a local paper from Ottawa states that Sir Wilfrid Laurier, it ijj understood, is planning to make his big Western tour, starting from Ott wa the first week in September.

Prof. Campbell is the famous dry farming expert of Nebraska and Col- orado, whose system cultivating land has revolutionized the semi-arid districts of the United States. Every farmer should make a spe- cial effort to hear him. SNUBBED BY KING Old Family Friend Voted in Censure and King Edward Resents It London, June Edward has made the first serious mistake of his reign. Arthur Ponsonby, formerl} private secretary to the late premier] Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman, anc now his successor as member of liament for Stirling, voted recently with the Radical and Socialist minor] ity in condemnation of the king's staet visit to the Czar. When subsequently the invitatior list to Windsor garden party was pre-1 pared, the king ordered the names of Ponsonby, Liberal; and Keir-Hs die and Victor Grayson, Socialists, be omitted. Close Connections with Royalty Ponsonby is a son of the late Sii Henry Ponsonby, Queen Victoria's private secretary. His brother, Ms-i jor Fritz Ponsonby, is equerry to the! king. King Edward probably resent I od Ponsonby's defection, especially] because of the family connection with royalty. But the serious point is that the king sought to punish by exclus- ion from a state function a membe of Parliament for exercising his con- stitutional right of voting according to his conscience.
