Som-*rs, president of the Toronto Board of Trade, who is visiting here studying trade conditions in Western Canada, expresses the opinion that the western farmers 'are suffering a real hardship and injustice on account of /the present railway freight rates. Mr. iSomers thinks it is the urgent duty f>( the governments and railways to build large elevators and drying plants without delay at points a few. hundred miles apart. The equalization of freight rates throughout the �west would in the opinion of Mr. Komers, greatly aid in remedying. Blatters. Doctors Chiselled Away Superfluous Bone - Able to Eat Coleman, July -9.-Albert Yaguf, a Coleman miner, who met with an accident in the mines here nearly two years ago, from the effect of which his jaws have been interlocked since that date, was discharged from the Coleman miners' hospital yesterday cured. On June 7, 1910, Yaguf, while at work in the mines, was caught between a car and the wall of the mine and severely crushed. When conveyed to the hospital and examined it was found that the chief injuries were to his head and face. His jaws we're broken in several places and his face and head badly cut and bruised. Pus farmed in the wounds and it was two months before they healed, leaving the man's jaws firmly interlocked. Since that time until the operation, Yaguf has BubBisted entirely on liquids. He was repeatedly urged to submit to an operation in the hopes of releasing the interlocked jaws, but steadfastly refused. The coal company was paying nim a monthly indemnity, equal to one half his earning capacity as, a miner, and Yaguf was apparently 'content to allow matters to remain in that condition. It was not unWl he was notified by the company's solicitor that the compensation would be discontinued unless he submitted to an  operation, that he consented to consult the surgeon in charge of the hospital and submit to an examination. Even when assured that there was a chance for his recovery, Yaguf balked at the operation. The coal company then discontinued file indemnity fund and finally Yaguf appeared at the hospital and announced his readiness to "take a. change for his life." Yaguf's ja,w|s were so ttrmly interlocked and Had grown together in such a mannur that it was found necessary to perform a double operation. One side of '.his jaws were operated upon two weeks ago, and the mass of bone wlfifch had grown over them was chisel/ed away. Last week the ether slde^ was attended to, the shrunken rmuscles gathered and tied, (Continued on jQa&p 8}. ?   REGINA AFTER FERERAL LOAN Ottawa, July 30.--Mayor Peter McAra, Dr. \V. D. Cowan, and A. E. Whitmore, of Regina, interviewed the government yesterday, in regard to the question of a loan for rebuilding the city. J.

The ac cident is reported to have occurred thirty miles north of Boone Island.

London, July 3li|-Harold Spencer, writing editorially *in the Daily News (Liberal) on the subject of Cabinet control of foreign affairs in conjunction with the Overseas Dominions, points out how peace or war is now practically in the hands of the Cabinet, although it is even possible that war might be declared by the PremieT alone. Therefore, if the Overseas Dominions are given a statutory voice in this final decision, they would actually possess morepower that the House of Commons orHhe Cabinet. The article proceeds to apeak of the remarkable change in the attitude of the present British government: "If Canada is to have a voice, it is clear the other Dominions must also." Mr. Spencer goes on: "Any Imperial council so formed, will have to be consulted on all important questions of foreign policy, and if there is to be any reality in the plan, the British Cabinet,will have to accept their advice. In that way, the supremacy of the Cabinet will be quietly, but certainly, Impaired, and so far as the British Cabinet is impaired, to that extent a .blow will be struck at the British Parliament, from which the Cabinet Is.drawn. This fundamental change in government might make for peace or war. "It is to be feared it would make for war. Restraints on war ariBe chiefly from fear of the consequences of war, but as 'the Dominions are far removed fromvtbe possible centre of any Europeanj-war, they would be far less liable tov'jjiose restraints. It is perfectly ceived in comparative silence. > pity to spoil so many good farms to make so much very   i i ;
