Accordingly, when Mr. Macdonald was here yesterday he .began casting about for a location wherjn he would be able to obtain spur track frontage without further trouble. Smith street offered nothing which appealed to him and he therefore began to look ov er the wholesale district in the east of tho city, which is beginning to bo recognised as the main wholesale section of the city. Wishing to have the warehouse close to the business section also, he chose three lots on tlie corner of Ninth street and Sec- ond avenue, facing Second avenue.

Rupert Hinstol has oats pn 24-5-17 which are growing well to .75 bushels, and Chris Blotter on Sec. will reap 75 to SO bushels. .Mr. Blotter's grain suffered from hail.

On Reciprocity to be Made at the Republican Conventions Washington, July struggle over tl.y Canadian .reciprocity bill in the United States did not end with the President's signing. Indeed, It looks as it they were only begun. It was learned that the controversy is going to be carried into Republican politics in many states. It is likely to ho carried into tlie Republican na- tional convention next summer. Plans made to conduct a sort oC referendum on reciprocity, that is, the issue will be raised in a number of conventions which will be held next spring, prior to the Republican National convention next summer. _______ It Is expected, that a number of the j over Ihe Western provinces, and states, along with the attempts made to adop tplatforms against reciprocity there will Sbe attempts to get anti- Taft delegations. IE the anti-recipro- city elements can make the showing In different, states, which they hope to, they will- do their utmost to get the next national convention to make a stand opposed to reciprocity.

IN CIRCULATION .Montreal, July movement is gathering strength in banking circles here, to secure greater circulation during the period of the year when money is in greatest demand, namely, the period in which the crops are moved. Conservative bankers con- sider that capitalization on which note circulation rests, has been in- creased to tho limit of prudence al- ready. The next alternative, there- fore, is to be attempted, and the gov- ernment, will in all probability short- ly be aaked to lengthen the period In which the banks are allowed to !n- crcaso their note circulation by fif- tcen per cent, tn include the months of March and September, as well as October, November, December, Jan- uary am!

He will spend several weeks in the west as representative of an English syndicate, investigat- j ing a plan to ship Canadian and Am- ican cattle to Brazil, where the syndicate believes better pastures can be found ami superior breed of beef cattle, raised for the English market. Louis .Moore's explanation of thc in- .terview in the Herald about the strike is as follows: Ho was at n football match, and was sitting near the man-; ager of P. Burns Co.. who happened to ask him why there were no orders for supplies this week, and he replied "There are no orders this week." The reporter was silting close by, and Mr Alopre says his imagination got to work and made out that, supplies were cut out altogether. He did not say that the men were tired of -being out of work, and wore prepared to go back to work.

APPOINTMENTS TO NORMAL SCHOOL Edmonton, July 27. It was learn- ed at the Department of Education Jiis morning that two appointments to the Normal school at Calgary will made this afternoon, Tho office of principal will not likely bo filled or some time, and Dr. Coffin will continue to act in that capacity. H. M. Roberts. M.A.. muster of ma- hematics in the Edmonton High school, has boon appointed lecturer in History and education, and methods in higher mathematics. W. G. Car- penter, principal of the collegiate in- stitute in Calgary, IB the other ap- pointee. -Mr. Koberts has been In Edmonton for Ihreo. years. Bufore receiving the appointment In the High school here last year, he was principal of the Al- exandra Taylor public school. Mr. Koberts ia n young man yet, as he is only 27 years of age. Ho comes from Ontario, and both no niirt Mr. Cnr- pontnr took thoir university and ped- agogic training in Toronto. Attitude of Ministry is Very Strongly En? dorsed London, July London morn-. ing papers give great prominence to the statement of Premier Astiuith and Mr. Balfour, on the Moroccan difficul- ty editorially. They deal with the sit- uation In a tone of studied modera- tion, but all, irrespective of party, jress hearty approval of the gov- ernment statement, and while admlt- ting thc delicacy and gravity of the siiuatioh believe that the attitude of Great Britain revealed in Balfour's cordial endorsement of the govern- ment's policy, will assist in a peace? 'ul solution. The Chronicle, a government organ, lias authority to say that the interna- tional situation is distinctly easier than it was a few days when peace was trembling in the balance. The Daily Telegraph thinks that It ought still to be possible to secure unlcable adjustment between France by some limited acqui- by Germany on the side of Kamerun, as a result of the ratification of tlie frontiers Tho Morning Post canuot. believe that'the German Emperor who'so re- cently as King George's guest at the Guildhall expressed a desire for peace and good will towards England, could have spoken in that strain if his gov- ernment were expecting Great Britain to be faithless to her engagements- towards France. Optimistic at Paris Paris, J uly optimism prevailed .at capital today, though it was admitted that negotiations with Germany regarding Jloroccoan fairs remain difficult. The statement of Premier Asqulth. In the British House of Commons yes- terday, and Premier Chaillaux's ad- vice to the Fcnch to keep cool and be prudent relieved the tension at the momoiit when relief was most need- ed, as thc discreet military prepara- tions of the government were giving rise to apprehension that war was not impossible. These preparations included orders to cavalry to be ready for the field at the first signal; heavy provisioning of forts on the easter.a frontier by special supply trains run out of Paris at night, and mustering of.'all regiments to fill! lueta. It is understood that Baron Kldef- lon-Waechter, German foreign tary, who is conducting negotiation with Jules Cn'mbon, French Ambassa- dor, is asking for a part instead of tbe whole coast o.( the French Congo, but at the same time making other con- which Fvance, would find dif- ficulty in accepting. Nevertheless, there Is a strong feeling that a solu- tion will be found. The morning pa- pers welcome Mr. Asquith's speech as clarifying the situation, and hastening a settlement. The Figaro understands that Em- peror William told personal friends hat, the Moroccoan question could be settled amicH'bly with France. Look for Settlement Paris, July British Prime Minister's statement in the House of Commons is greeted here with tbe greatest satisfaction. Optimism is beginning to manifest itself, and thfj opinion expressed last night is one of confidence that- the deadlock be- .ween Franco and Germany over Mor rocco will be broken, and a settle- ment acceptable to all parties reach- ed. Premier Caillanx conferred with M, Do Selves, Minister of Foreign ministers of War. Marine, Public Affairs, and afterwards with Works and Finance, but thc confer- ences were conducted in tt calm, Jud- cinl manner. Later M. said that prudence and cool he-ads were more thnn ever necessary Jo all part- ies. must not lose sighl. of the said Ihe Premier, "that two ?roat nations ran and must ond arrange their differences."
