LOWTHEU CHAIRMAN The-Right Hon. James Lowther, speaker of the House of Commons, who was chosen to 'preside over the conference, was the first to appear. He was followed bj Ihe eight men who represent various parties the Llbcril the Unionist the Na !tionalist and the Ulsterltes King with Baron Stain fotdham his private secretary, re- ceived the statesmen and shook hamis cordially with all of them Probablj this was the first time that John Redmond and John tbe Irish Nationalist leaders had exchanged greetings with their sovereign as it had been the prac tice ot Sationalist membeis of Par hament to remain away from all functions members of. the House of Commons were likely to be brought in contact with Rwalti NOT ALTOGETHER FRIGID Tho meeting of the Conservative and Liberal leaders on such intimate tooting was apparently friendly, hut could-not have been cordial, as Pre-. micr Asquith .and Andrew Bonar Law have been barely on speaking terms since Mr. Law practically ac- cused the Premier in the House of Commons ot lying about recent gov- eminent plans to suppress Ulster vol- unteers. The Marquis of Lansdowne, leader of the Unionists in. the House of Lords; and David Lloyd George, Chancellor of Exchequer, two of the other cbnferes, represent the most cxtrema aristocractic and democratic schools of British'politics, and arc generally believed to be bitter per- sonal enemies. Since personal feelings among poli- the-United Kingdom never fan so high as .at present, the atmos- phere at the. gathering could not hare'been otherwise than extremely chilly and formal. KINO WITHDRAWS After a brief conversation King George withdrew from the meeting about noon, leaving the conferees to their deliberations. PKESS COMMENT According to the Daily News which represents the section of-the Radicals liiai, lescnts the King's interference the, King intends to withhold assent from the Home Rule bill unless the amending bill is presented at the same time tor flic Royal assent, the court view being that the King is entitled to take this course because the introduction of .the amending hill iias vitiated the procedure under the Parliament-Act. The Daily News believes that it was the d fficulty thus raised which compelled- recourse, to the round table 'conference. It adds that the Unionist leaders at first refused lo enter the TORONTO ARISTOCRACY GOES A-FISH1NG CAVE-IN KILLS ONE Montreal, Que., July laborer named, Urancor wasfhilled, and Jos-j eph Duljuc was.

Grand Trunk Pacific Hail- way own well that is being erected south of the cttv, in the Coutts-Sweet Grass fields? Much speculation as to who is really behind what is commonly known as the Segur well in 1-12, was heard this morning when the information that the drilling machinery recently ship- ped to Coutts was billed to the Grand Trunk leaked out.

Whether the Grand Trunk really owns the drill- ing rig which will soon be operating is still a question open to speculation. Mr. Segur is in the north, and no con- firmation can be had from him at the present time, The drill Is practically ready for work now. Mr. Segur stated on the occasion of .his last, visit that he _ was merely waiting for' the steam, and that the boiler would be on the ground in a short time.

This is the answer made by the doctor to a query as to the wel- fare of the latest addition to the population, who arrived the lat- ter part of last week. The arrivals arc Ruthenian-Oan- three in number. The rea- son their welfare was sought af- ter, is -because they were so weak when tlicy first reacted here that they couldn't stand, and it was thought for a 'while that they would not enjoy the Alberta at- mosphere very long. The new residents are not immi- grants. They were horn here, and probably the fine Alberta air had something to do with their sur- vival. .They are the three daugh- ters of Mr. and Mrs. Stsve 1311uk, Rittlienians, who live just back of the ronnd-house. They arrived early Saturday morning, and are all, as tho doc- tor-said, doing line, including the mother. Each of the new citizens weighs 3.'. pounds.
