R. depot this morning to discuss the alarming diminution in the cattle industry in the four western provinces, and if possible to devise means by which the farmers may be induced to take up this neglected branch. The press was excluded. The. meeting was called by the industrial department of the C.P.R., and was attended by the Hon. Duncan Marshall, Hon. Mr. Lawrence, Dr. Rutherford, Dr. Bell; Messrs. McMul-len and Dennis, of the C.P.R., Calgary, J. Cochrane Smith and H. � B. Arkell, who attended for the Hon. Martin Bur-rell. STORM EXPOSES OLD GATEWAY Winnipeg. July 20.-The severe storm > of Saturday laid bare to the eyes one of the historic'rks of Winnipeg in the underground gateway of old Port Garry which now may be seen at the foot of Main street, just beyond the new C. N: R. bridge over the Assinaboine. The rain struck the ground with such force that it has opened a hole about twenty feet deep and ten feet wide. The gateway is clearly to be seen and also the solid stonework of the wail. The bank of the river hats been filled in as the gateway is now some distance from the river, in fact nearly thirty feet, while it was formerly right on the bank.. It is claimed that by this secret gate Thomas Scott made good his escape from the Fort in 1870. MOULDING SHOP DESTROYED Amherst, N. S., July 29.-The moulding shop of the Robb Engineering Co., was destroyed by fire tonight. PETITION TO SUBMIT BYLAW PINCHER CREEK RATEPAYERS FAVOR NEW HALL-TO EXPLOIT OIL FIELDS Pincher Creek, July 29.-The usual formal petition was circulated throughout the town today asking the council to again submit the town hall bylaw to the burgesses for their approval. The quashing of the original bylaw does not seem to have had tlic effect of putting a.damper on the enterprise or enthusiasm of the aldermen, for, according to the petition circulated (which, by the way, sent around town . for signatures at the instances of the aldermen themselves) the ratepayers arc to he asked to authorize the expenditure of some thirty thousand dollars to. build and equip a municipal building and fire hall combined. The amount of the original bylaw was only twenty-five thousand dollars, talk on the street, it was at first apparent that to increase the amount stipulated in the original bylaw would spell certain defeat if the ratepayers were again called upon to.cast a vote on the question. But under the new Towns Act, taking into consideration the total number of names on the roll, something like a hundred and thirty signatures would be necessary* on the petition before the council could legally commence action along the line of submitting a new bylaw.. Your correspondent understands that the necessary number of signatures was secured  without any trouble whatever, and if .'every person who signed the petition gets out and votes for the bylaw, it will almost certainly pass. In any case, however, conceded to be practically impossible to erect the new town hall this year now, and there are many who think the council might very wisely leave the whole question over till next spring. H. H. Forwardj of the Pincher Creek Harness and Saddlery Company, denies the report that he is about to sever his connection with the above company and remove to Calgary. The fine, warm weather continues and as a result the farmers are happy. .' There is already considerable movement -�iiu harvesting machinery, and .haying also will be in full swing in a day or two. As far as the prospects for haying and harvesting are concerned, farmers appear to'�be entirely satisfied. But not so concerning the transportation problem. "If the railways cannot keep the mines, alone supplied with cars now, what will happen when ; the bun\per crop is ready for shipment ?" is 'the query one constantly hears on' all sides. A Mr. Buckingham, of Vancouver, has been in town for a few days making preparations to go out to the South Fork oil fields. Mr. Buckingham represents a company which has already . done, considerable development work in the locality referred to, and recent activities in the district west of Okotoks has doubtless caused these men to again resume operations. A number of land seekers from Calgary were in Pincher Creek over Sunday. We understand they were looking for investments. It seems rather odd to see a stranger in our midst who is not, floating some kind of a railway proposition. REBUILDING THE ELCAN TIPPLE COAL MINE WILL RESUME WORK IN AUGUST-JOLLY PARTY AT COALDALE Coal City, July 29.-The work of clearing the wrecked tipple of the El-can coal mine! is still in progress. It is hoped that the mine will be ready for work in August. Mr. Wark is leaving here for Calgary, having been appointed manager of the mine owned by the Newcastle Mining Co. T. Berford, passing an examination in Lethbridge, has secured the Pit Boss Certificate upon which he is to be congratulated. Mr. l'arkcs is now convalescent, but we are sorry to hear that Mrs. Bart-lott is suffering from typhoid fever. Her condition, however, is not serious, and we hope her recovery will be speedy. Considering the many inconveniences there was a good attendance at the Methodist service on Sunday evening The subject was "The Law oE Multiplication", and was attentively listened to. On Friday evening the lawn social in aid of I hp Methosist parsonaigcjiwas-held. Sports commenced at K.30 in which almost all the children in the town took pari.

Burleigh, police sergeant,'club wound on arm. Constable Silliker, bullet wound in left shoulder and club wound on left arm. Under arrest: Thomas Savage, for disorderly conduct. A parade of striking C. N. R. coal dock laborers which was directed by Madison Hicks, a labor leader, was held in the late afternoon and at 7 o'clock, pickets were placed at the C. N. R. crossing hear the coal docks. Three picktts interfered with two men attempting to go to work. A crowd of several hundred quickly gathered and Chief McLennan, Sergeant Burlelght, and two constables went to the rescue. The attempt of the officers to arrest one of the pickets was the signal for tbe production of clubs. Blows fell fast and the first man taken by the officers was rescued by his comrades. When the Chief of Police was laid low, a desperate struggle ensued, the police fighting over their fallen Chief. Some one pulled a gun, and as if by magic, they appeared in all hands. The firing was sharp and down went the assailant of the Chief of Police with several bullets in his body. Ata-V' other foreigner was stretched out but was borne by his/ comrades to tho woods which surround the bouses; cI the foreigners quite close by. Constable Peterson was given a dea-, perate beating by a big burly ehat> with a three foot club, but the foreigner was in turn knocked down by CtM- : stable Thurlow. The ambulance.was sent for, one of the badly wounded foreigners sent to the hospital under police guard while the wounded police themselves took the Btreet ear to go up town for repairs. The Port Arthur City counoil in session adjourned on hearing of the trouble and advised the Mayor to call out the Ninety Sixth Reflment If the situation warranted. All was quiet soon, though several hundred foreigners.were hanging around the scene of' the trouble and it was expected that in any peraon attempting to go to' work, rotting would break out afresh. The Ninety Sixth Regiment was called out as a precautionary method.- It is said the Chief of Police, Mr. McLennan may not recover. Two hundred men in the employ of the Canadian Northern coal and ore dock, quit work without demonstration yesterday afternoon. They declared a strike on account of their failure to get an increase in wages of about five* cents an hour from the award of a board of conciillation which made its': report last week.. The board consisted of Judge McKay, O. P. Horrigan and Fred TJrry. The first two names reporter against any increase over the rates which averaged about 25 cents per hour. .
