Pagc7 BANKERS FAVOR HAVING HOUSE Report To Board Of Trade League Of Empire Approved Of City From Explosives Liime shoulder is almost invariably caused by rheumatism of the muscles and yields quickly to the free applica- tion of .Chamberlain's Liniment.

NEWFOUNDLAND'S REPRESENTATIVE At the Hague At the hoard of trade luncheon yes- terday afternoon A. Tilley brought up the matter of the armory building and on the motion of the vice presi- dent the secretary was instructed to write the militia department, C, A. Magrath, M.P., and Senator DeVeber urging that its erection be delayed no longer. A letter was received from the dep- uty minister of public works at Ed- monton in reply to'a letter from the the board stating that an agreement had been made w th the- C.P.R. for the taking over by the department of the Six-Mile Coulee bridge, and that it was extremely unlikely that the parties who had bought the St. Mary's bridges tear it down also. No Danger A letter was received from P. L. Naismith, general manager of the A. R. I. Co., stating that he did not consider there was any possible dan- ger to the city from the companyjs powder house north of the tracks. There was never more than a carload of explosives stored there at any one time, while at any time almost, there is just as great a quantity on cars on the railroad. For the in- formation of the board, however, be stated that .the A. R. 1. Co. was considering the erection of a new powder house which would be some considerable distance outside the city limits.

G. STAPLES, Prop. being put in by Sanitary Inspector Owens, at Edmonton. League of Empire Supt.'. W. A. Hamilton, of city schools, who attended at the request, of the board, explained the objects of the League of Empire, the general secretary ol which, Mrs, Orde Mar- shall, oi London, Eug., was in the city recently. The object of the league was two- fold. First, it was educational. At a conference held in London, three years ago at which ex-Premier Rutherford attended as a delegate from Alberta, it was decided to en- courage the interchange of corres- pondence between school children in. all parts of the British Empire, by which the children in one part would become interested in and obtain con- iderable knowledge of other parts. The other side of the organization was the encouraging of immigration to this country of boys just.leaving the schools of other parts. Mrs. Marshall had come to Canada to study conditions and it was believed that if organizations could be formed in the various provinces to handle this end of it, matters would be fa- cilitated. .-proposed to organ- ize committees consisting of eight men at Calgary, Edmonton and Leth- b ridge in Alberta and pro- vincial committee of three1, from each city.

Taylor went over the ground with Mayor Adams and some of the aldermen, whereby the city will half the cost and the railroads hall. A letter was received from Supt. Taylor putting the matter in writing and plans of the proposed structure were submitted. The a three span bridge, the span's being ISO feet, 150 feet and 135 feet re- spectively from the Baroness road end and the remainder of 'the' eleven hun- dred feet being m.ade up of steel ap- proaches. The bridge will be 28 feet wide. The city will bear the cost of maintenance. Aid. Frayne thought that the railroads should be askod to pay half of the latter, but Aid. Sage and others thought that the mayor had arranged splendidly, and that the city could not ask for more. The C.P.R. will have the work car- ried out and agree to .have it com- pleted by November of this year. A communication was also .received irom Supt.-Taylor regarding the con- struction of a spur track to the city's industrial sites, paralleling its main line and asking permission from the city to cross Westminster road with it. It'was pointed out that a track had Jo be constructed from the west side'of Westminster Road in order to obviate the necessity of train orders having to be issued every time an engine went out to the sites. Aid. Frayne brought up the point that if the track was to be used as a stor- age track for cars it would render the Westminster track more danger- ous by shutting dut the main line from, the view of people about to cross and the motioi giving the per- mission read: "That the C.P.R. be granted permission to place a second track across Westminster road paral- lel to the main line the same to be used as a spur to the industrial sites and not as a storage track." Supt. Price wrote in reply to the city's request that crossings be op- ened rtp at.the road allowances east of the city between Westminster road and the sto'ck yards, and stated that he had given orders for them to be opened at once. I Frederick W. Brown wrote asking the council's permission for the use of the north half of the Galfc square during the week commencing "June 20 for a carnival on the same basis as last'year. He made the request ia view of the council's decision, not to cut the square up until Aug. 31st, and offered to deposit a forfeit that the square would be properly cleaned up. On the suggestion of Aid. Hatch that as -the population of the city had just about doubled since last year the license should be doubled, and on motion of Aid. Sage, the request was granted and the license fixed at per week (it was last exclusive of light and water. Aid. Sage and King were very much incensed at what they considered the arbitrary action of C. E. Browcr in constructing a wooden shanty be- tween his tailor shop and the store of the city bakery on the property on Ford street adjoining the city build-_._- ing, without obtaining a building per- mit. After some discussion a motion, was passed instructing the building- inspector to ascertain by whose au- thority "the space between the two buildings in this block" has been roofed in and a door put in, and whether the city's building or fire by- laws had been contravened and if they had to order the structure down at once. There were present at the meeting, Mayor Adams, Aldermen "Bowman, King, Hatch, Frayne and Sage.
