Riley goes up against the opponent he wanted, for. the late member has de- cided to. run as an independent' and will likely be given Conservative sup- port. Riley was on his mettle and though he was strongly attacked for the position lie .had taken in resign- ing and the failure to properly look after his constituency, he kept his colors flying.

Sask., July Winnipeg- Oil Co. was completely out this afternoon as the re- sult of a disastrous fire which orig- inated through the explosion of gas that had generated from the oil in I one of the tanks of the xvarehouse. The explosion occurred at 2.15' and within half an hour -the ibuildings were 'burned to the ground, there be- ing nothing left standing. Barrels were -hurled some 200 feet in the air -and bursting fed the flames with fresh fuel. The fire -brigade is on. the spot but is powerless in face of the burning oil to do more than prevent the fire spreading. At four o'clock 'barrels of oil were still exploding every two or three minutes and at each explosion the names receTved fresh fuel. There is great fear that the heat may explode two enormous tanks of gasoline which at present are the only things which with the ex- ception of a number of empty -barrels are left untouched by the fire.

It was indeed a tired, but happy very satisfied crowd -that disem- barked at the various stations on the home route. Upon every side was heard expressions, smacking of sin- cerity, and all loudly voicing a great and entire satisfaction backed up by an excellent time. A certain share of the extraordin- ary success of the affair falls to the managing committee, but a mighty factor in the day's undertakings was j neatly missed, the train crew who conducted their sist them in formulating their re- commendations as to changes in the proposed bill. As drafted by the government, the bill covers forty-eight pages of print- ed matter and contains 115 sections. 'All these sections were gor.2 into in detail and the recommendations of the miners' representatives noted as the clauses were passed. There Will Be Changes The bill' had received careful con- sideration by the minister of before it was submitted to the own- operators and mi if? xvorkers, but if the Fernie session is a fair sample of all the others thai have proceeded it, -there will be many changes in the wording of the act before it is submitted to the legislature for final action.. The preponderance of recom- mendations made by the miners here was along the line of better condi- tions for the men working in the mines and the better guarding of life from the many dangers to which it is exposed in coal mining.
