The progress of the Imperial gen- eral staff and development of its func- tions occupy attention. It is pointed out that u the imperial gen- eral staff jiai'been (carceiy two years In existence it could not be reasonable to look for. very, great progress. The general staff of the German army in present form has teen In existence for over half a century before its val- 118 proved to the world in 1866 ana 1870. The general start of the Japan army was over twenty-five years before the. campaign in 'Manchuria be- gan.

Evidently there is little fuel on tho Montana market and Montana people are just as anxious to see the strike in this district settlgd as the Alberta people themselves. Rumors on the street this morning seen? to point toward a settlement of the strike if the miners are allowed to voice their opinion by means of a vote on the majority report. A large number of local miners have intimat-1 cd their desire to go back to work, and it is more than likely that the Lclhbridge local at least, will vote W. J.

She got off with her starboard engine room pierced and with water rising there, but imablt to keep it down by her pumps. The first news of che stranding of the cruiser came shortly before one o'clock this morning by wireless from Capu Sable, Commander reported that the Niobe was in grave peril and required assistance.

The Nio'oe had been at Yarmouth for one of the attractions at a big old home week celebration, and she was to have sailed tomorrow for Liver- pool, N. S.

The ship drifted, on to the south-west ledge oft Cape Sable, the most dangerous part of this rock jound coast.

It is impossible to judge of other localities in the district, whether the proposeil scale may affect the miners to a greater extent, and it will take Ihe official result to determine the matter definitely. If Friday's vote re-suits favorably to a resumption of work it, will not take long to put Ihq mines in working condition again and the threatened fuel famine may yet be averted before much suffering will result from tho long shut-down throughout the district. ;
