Henderson Garage titli St.. and 6th Ave. Phone 588 Hillcrest Needs a Bank RUMOR THAT UNION WILL OPEN THERE-FOREST FIRE ON MOUNTAIN SIDE Hillcrest, Alta., June 3.-Several prominent men around town have been trying for some time to get the Union Bank of Canada to open up a branch here. At the time the bank was closed in Frank, the branch waB moved over to Bellevue, and Bellevue and Hillcrest made Bub-branches, open for business on alternate days during Uio week. There is a rumor going around nowadays that the bank is opening up an office in Hillcrest. Should they do so, it will prove a great convenience for the whole town, besides being one more step in the right direction. Mrs. AGeorge Brown ^Arrived in Hillcrest on Sunday evening last from the States. George has a fruit ranch down there, and is doing well with it, but he has found that money Is more plentiful in the land of the /Maple Loaf, and from the way his new bowling alley is patronized, we do not think he is making' any mistake in staying. A large number of Hillcrest people wore stung-and badly stung-at Blairmore the other evening, where they had gone to see a much-advertised play. The advertising was good, but the play was punk. The men In charge of the Opera House at Blairmore ought to be a little more careful in the way in which they 'let any bunch of strolling players take the boaTds, and fool the public in this way, for it knocks the Opera House worse than no play at all would, and, should a good play come to town, the residents are always scared of being stung again, and refuse to go-consequently the good companies get discouraged, and leave the town alone. A party of Hillcrest people took a trip to the South Fork last Sunday. It was a long ride for the ladies, some of whom are not accustomed to horse-riding, but as they say they enjoyed it w^ believe them. The cook at the Union Hotel has quit, and left town on Monday. All who have been fortunate enough to try his cooking are very sorry to seo him leave. Prank is wearing a deserted look at present, although there are a number of old-timers living in the old town still. Some of these are busy selling out, preparatory to leaving, while the others are awaiting the decision of the government regarding compensation. We do not know whether to praise these latter or not, in spite of It is announced that a wedding will shortly take place between Miss Annie Ellk, the eldest daughter of one of our prominent citizens, and Mr. N. Hartnick. Both parties being well known and liked in the town, it is probable that there will be a large attendance at the ceremony, which will take place at the Old Office, near the mine, ou Saturday, June 15. the fact that a man that stands by a losing cause is always entitled to a certain amount of respect. For with Hillcrest so near, we cannot un-dersland why they do not join us while waiting to hear the result of their deputation's visit to the Premier. Mr. Algernon Ferguson, who has focen spending the last six months in Hillcrest, teaching the young people o� Bellevue and Hillcrest the art ol dancing, left town on Saturday last with his sister and family. The Coal Company have moved their track scales from the old tipple to the new one, and are in a position to start running the latter almost immediately. The track gang are being-kept busy changing the mine car tracks, and as soon as these alterations are completed, they will be called upon to handle 561b. steel, extending the strandard'track yards at the tipple. It is lucky that Mr. Whillcr, the budding contractor of Frank; is a man with the good lines, otherwise half of Hillcrest. might have moved-unwillingly, of course,- to Frank. His horse shied at Mahoney's Rock and hit tlva high spots for home, but Jake was right there, and no damage was done. Mr. Whiller has had the contract for renovating several of the company's houses at the foot of the hill; this work he has nearly finished. . There is a great demand in town for dwelling houses at the present time, and many of the miners and others have taken to building for them Belves. There was a small bush fire on the side of Goat Mountain nearest Frank this afternoon, close by the new Rocky Mountains Sanitorium, but the wind, driving the fire to a bare space on the mountain side, no further damage was done, than the destruction of several acres of small timber and brush. Tennis is getting to be quite the rage in town these days,, in spite of the fact that the courts; are not yet finished. The'membership" is the laTg 'est the club has ever had, and no doubt as soon as the work on the courts is complete,' there will be a greater number still wishing to join. Didn't Advertise the Facts SOME IRREGULARITY IN CONNECTION WITH COLEMAN.  SCHOOL TENDERS Coleman, June 3.-In the Herald's issue of May 20, reference was made to an alleged difficulty arising in connection with the crossing of "the C. P. R. right-of-way by the forest telephone line. This report is incorrect, Inasmuch as, while the law is complied with, no difficulties can obstruct the crossing of the railway's right-of-way. It now appears that the delay has been occasioned by other circumstances over which the railway has no control. The adult Bible class of the Institutional Church is conducting a picnic today in the reservoir park. Quite a number of members and adherents availed themselves of this opportunity of spending a day in the woods. The International "oal and Coke Co. established a record output of coal last month, the tonnage reaching the amount, of 8,860 tons. This is ths largest monthly output in the history of the company, anil all indications are that this record will bo surpassed. The pay roll for the month of May is expected to be in excess of all others on record. Jas. Grafton has purchased the Southern Hotel, of Bellevue. Mr. Grafton's personal popularityl will, no doubt, be further augmented by the future popularity of his house. Messrs. MacDonnld, Clark and C. Outmette attended the tennis tournament in Frank this afternoon. Frank and Blairmore are competing. Messrs. ex-Mayor Cameron and E. Disney have returned from the Grand Lodge A.F. and A.M., recently held in Edmonton. Mr. Ed. MacDo; aid, formerly of the E. T. bank, Coleman, now of the Bank of Commerce, Medicine Hat, is spending tho holiday in town. An alleged irregularity has occurred in connection with the. award of the tenders for the new schooi addition. It is charged that tenders were not properly advprtised In all particulars of the construction, and that tho opportunity to submit tenders was thus denied some would-be tenderers. The matter will be adjusted at the Wednesday night meeting of the Board. Mr. J. B. Sutherland, of Macleod, has been appointed manager of the Maclaren Lumber Co., succeeding Jas. Ruxton, late manager. Mr. Sutherland waB formerly the company's sales manager at Macleod. A. C. Flumerfelt, of Victoria B. C, president of the International Coal and Coke Co., and director of the Canadian Bank of Commerce, was in town on Saturday last. in the suit of Suronen vs. West-wood, the plaintiff was awarded $1000 and costs, for alleged injuries to a hand as a result of professional inefficiency. Although the defendant, ar-gu-ad that the services rendered were by Dr. Talbot, at. that time locum tenens for Dr. Westwood, the court held that his responsibility was in no degree diminished thereby. R. W. Riddell, managing director of the International"Coal and Coke Co., left on Saturday for a trip West. "The Girl and The Tramp," which was staged here on Saturday, was somewhat of a disappointment to a large audience. The main objections were that the plot was weak and uninteresting, and the dramatis personae v.ois incompetent, thus leaving little or nothing of merit in the play. It I.robably suffered also in comparison w'Ui "The Squaw Man" of the prevails week. A new tipple has been installed at Hi) nest, whose capacity is 3,000 tons per day. The Co-Operative Company has opened a branch store in Hillcrest, H. J. Cunningham is the new proprietor of the Union Hotel, Hillcrest. OPIUM ROOM ON OCEAN LINERS Known as "Hospital," But Only Chin ese Frequent It San Francisco, June 3.-Among oth- j er appointments for the comfort of passengers of the liner Siberia is an opium room m which Chinese smoke. So testffied ChaTles R. Kenney, lately third officer of the vessel, in a hear-J ing today before Francis Krull, United States commissioner. The room is marked "hospital," Kenney said, but so far as he knew only opium smokers used it. Commissioner Krull will pass on th-a application of Captain A. B. Seeder, master of tko Siberia, thai his line tor having contraband opium on board his vessel be reduced to nominal, as has been the custom in the past. Th-a captain pleads he ought not to be held accountable for tho action of every individual of his command. The records produced today show that 1928 tins of opium, valued at approximately ?26,125, have been taken from the Siberia on her last five voyages. Other Pacific mail liners that have brought opium during the same period are the Mongolia, 317 tins; the Corea, 117 tins; the Manchuria, 153 tins, and the China, I2S tins. The figures speak only for the seizures. How much undetected opium was smuggled ashore the customs officers do not �ue�a� SUNDIAL TO GET IMPROVED SERVICE WILL BE FOUR MAILS A WEEK- LITTLE CHAP BROKE HIS ARM Sundial, June 3.-Mr, and Mrs. B. G. Dunn and baby, drove to Leth-brldge on Wednesday, Mrs. Dunn and baby lott by the Thursday morning tr*in for Minnesota, where they expect to spend a month, visiting friends and relatives. Mr. McCombe, of Yet wood, drove through Sundial on Thursday on his way to Lone Star. Air and Mrs. J. W. Farley called on Mr. and Mrs. Rose on Sunday evening. Mrs. Barnes called on Mrs. Evens on TneBday. Mr. and Mrs. B. G. Dunn, Miss S. Engen and H. C. Dunn called on Mr. and Mrs. Dr. Woodcock on Sunday evening. Mr. and Mrs. 'KJrig called at. the Thwaite's home on Tuesday. M. Fremstad and Jens Berg drove over from Claresholm on Wednesday to spend a few days on the letter's homestead. CVIrB. A. P. Rose called at Ingram's on Wednesday. Quite a number of the Sundial young foiks attended the dance at Rosemead on Friday night. All report a jolly good time. Word has been received from the Post Office Department stating that Sundial 'will receive four mails per week, beginning some time in June. Mail will leave Sundial on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 8 o'clock, an-d arrive Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at six o'clock. Nothing slow about Sundial. While riding horseback on his pony one day last week, little Chum Connor had the misfortune to fall from the horse, and break his arm just above the elbow. Dr. Woodcock was called at once and set th� arm. The little fellow is doing nicely, and we all wish him a speedy recovery. Miss Pearl Ingram called on Mrs. Connor one day last week. Miss Iva Mills visited with Mrs. Evens on Saturday. A large crowd attended the school concert held in the Sundial school house on Saturday evening, June 1. Special credit is given to the teacher Elsie Bevor for her splendid training. All present report the - evening well spent. VAIN EFFORT TO STEM THE FLOW GOVERNORS CALL MEETING TO DISCUSS MEANS OF CHECKING EMIGRATION Great Falls, Mont.,: June 3.-In response to a call from the governors of seven western states, hundreds of the most progressive wide-awake men in the northwest will gather in Seattle to hold a great congress with a view to the formulation ot the plans and the evolution of schemes whereby it is. hoped to celebrate the development of the states which are included in the portion ot the United States west of the Mississippi and adjacent to and bordering on the Canadian west. In order to attain the desired cud, it is necessary that something should be done to stem the tide of emigration from this and other states to the Canadian west. Montana is not the only state of tho Union that has been suffering through a great number of her agriculturists yielding to the call of the newer land which lies to the north, but it is believed by many of the most observant here that she has suffered to an extent even greater than any. It is ,% realization of this that has prompted two hundred of the best* men of Montana to respond to the. call of the seven governors and hand themselves together in a great delegation under the leadership of Governor Morris, to attend the coming convention in Seattle. The Northwest development league was formed at I lelena a year ago and under its auspices the highly successful St. Paul land show was conducted just a few months ago. It is felt now that the movement has been altogether wise and well timed. Just what steps will be taken by the monster convention at Seattle can only be surmised, hut it is the opinion of many in this state and of a goodly number of those who form her delegation, that the enactment of a three-year homestead bill will prove tho only solution of the important problem of restraining the flow of the best American farmers to Canada. THE ARABS DISPERSED Fez, June 1 (delayed in transmission).-A strong column sent out by General Lyautay, the French commander, dispersed the tribesmen six miles outside of Fez. The French artillery shelled the camp, inflicting heavy loss on the tribesmen, who have been making continuous attackB against, the city.

W. Brad-shaw gave a reception in honor of their newly married daughter, Mrs. Norrls Blaxall. A large number of friends and relatives of Mr. and Mrs. Blaxall were present, and a most pleasant evening was spent. At halt time a dainty repast was served, which was thoroughly enjoyed by the, guests. The newly wedB were the recipients of many valuable presents as well as the unanimous congratulations and best wishes of all present, the Herald correspondent included. Mr. and Mrs. Blaxall will make their future home in Cardston where they have a very comfortable residence. The Magrath brick yard which N. McLean is managing, will start to manufacture brick next week. Mr. McLean lias made many improvements on his plant this spring, greatly facilitating the work, and is now in position to have a successful season's run. Mr. McLean has the contract of furnishing the brick for the new Mormon tabernacle, a job which will require the greater part of the summer to execute. T. F. Kirby, manager of the new Kirby Cafe, has this week installed a line system of gasoline lights. Signs point to there being a large number of Magrath people taking advantage of the low rates which are offered by the railway company to in view of tho annual conference of -ho Mutual Improvement Associa-I. 01,3 held in Salt Lake City,' in the r-arly part of this month.

On Wednesday evening a benefit concert was given iu the Electric Theatre, the proceeds ,of which wer�' donated to swell the Latter Day Saints church fund. Some excellent films were Hhown uhd the well known local humorist and entertainer, A. B. Cuichfleld, gave a genuinely funny act. as usual bringing down the house.: The large theatre was well filled, and the building fund increased materially as a result ot the concert. MUSIC AND DRAMA (Conducted by FIOCLIO) Musical Comedy at Majestic - A large audience greeted the Sherman-Cleveland opera company at. the Majestic Theatre last evening in the popular musical comedy success "The Time, the Place and the Girl." The company, although a small one, gave a. creditable performance from beginning to end of a piece which is in the last stages of decline. Musical comedy at the present day. is far from being up to a satisfactory standard, and it is a 'mystery sometimes to understand why authors and so-called musical composers get their goods before the public. As regards the performance, hWever, on this occasion the Sherman-Cleveland company surprised one with the nature of its work which was not in any way exaggerated. Perhaps the two outstanding successes in the cast were Miss Drena Mack in the part of Molly and H. B. Cleveland as Johnny Hicks, Miss Mack was warmly recalled for her solo in 'the second act, while the audience obviously appeared amused with Mr. Cleveland's refined comedy work. .  The bill tonight will be "The Follies of 1911," and it might be a good idea if the audience would make it a point of getting to the theatre before bedtime so that the curtain will rise at S.30 instead of nine o'clock.
