Tho farmers of the district speak in-glowing terms harvest prospect this A conservative estimate is that there come bushels of wheat ready for shipment, and grave tears are entertained with regard to the want of elevators..At present-'then- are only two, but at'least four more will be needed for the expected crop. Within the recollection oi the oldest fanner here there has been no better year than the present. The rainfall has been heavy, the record for the year so far, according to the govern- ment, guape at the Carmangay farm, being; 10 inches.

Economize on Water Mayor Pickson, in view of the com- ing scarcity of coal unless the pres- ent strike is soon'settled, has issued ia request to the citizens of Macleod to economize on the water; as the supply of coal at'the power house is limited and'will only last for about seven weeks. In future anyone found wasting water from the municipal water system will be prosecuted, there already- being two convictions on this charge. If the coal strike continues much longer it is probable that the town" will' have to economize even more on the, street lighting ser- vice.

Alberta, thirty days to the date of expiration of this agree- ment, to negotiate a new agreement. The conference proved fruitless, tlie agreement lapsed on March 31st 1911, and immediately the miners through- out .practically the whole district covered by the eighteen mines 'ceas- ed work.' The department of labor Immediately offered a conciliation board: the parties finally accepted: The hoard was constituted with A..T.

The board regreUuits Inability to present "an unanimous report., A. J. Carter being unable to accept 'the proposed'-wage scale, will present a minority "report. The board further deeply regrets that the utmost dill- pence and care in the securing and weighing of evidence secured during .the investigation and after the most strenuous and prolonged efforts to harmonise the opinions and attitudes of the parties, that it is forced to re- port a failure in this respect, In that neither of the parties is prepared to accept the finding of the board. H is, WOMAN IS NOT TO BE HANGED Ottawa. July a largely at- tended cabinet council this morning rit was decided to recommend execu- tive clemency In the case of Mrs. An- gela Neapolitano under sentence of death at the Soo for killing her hus- band. .The woman's'delicate physical condition and the jury's recommenda- tion to mercy, and the favorable re- port of the trial judge together with Wie'.woman's story of provocation were the principal grounds upon which the government has acted.' however, tho conviction !of the board, that after- due consideration of the equity of tho effect, of the parties will come to an agreemcM upon the basis" gested. The, problems confronting the board in dealing with this dispute so intricate and varied and the issues involved so vast and far reach- Ing, that the time consumed was far beyond the expectation of any of the members. B'JI having, entet.'.-d upon the task it was that anything but the most thorough and exhaustive In- vestigation would satisfy neither the board itself nor the department nor the country at large.

The report points out that during 'the Investigation-'ev- ery mine; was ery called and every grievance probed ai desired, sworn statement! taken- from the company and union' officals-were.placed on the stand: Situation xwaX_inspected and the cost' production, tonnage and output of mines, the'sell- ing.-prlce of coal, markets, relations of coaj companies to railway companies, and all similar matters were at the instigation 'of the- parties and on its own motion fully, investigated. In dscusslng the question of the causes of Uie perennial strife between the parties to "this" dispute, the board remarks that many of he miners-were reported arising' from conditions of work, interpretation of agreement, discrimination, in sonic cases to misunderstandings, Inj some to petty subordin- ate officials, In some to mismanage- ment of mines-and In gome again to unwise interference of union officers. At this point the board ventures the opinion that a stupid or tyrannical or- unsympathetic. pit boss or forernta may work great injury in a mine and sho.uld be removed, and that a meddle-' some secretary of a .local u'nloifcaa with greatest, a camp in a state of turmoil.- His-local should deal with him.
