Gait representing the Can- adian Pacific Railway company, the conciliation board, formed to adjust the existing difficulties between the company and the mechanical unions resumed its sittings yesterday after- noon. The fiction of the railway in adopting Mr. Gait as representative shows that it has acceded to the de- cision of the board Uiat its jurisdic- tion will extend over the eastern as well as the western lines, so that this phase of discussion, which took up so much time at the preliminary I meetings is finally settled.

Similar statements were made a year ago of the Dakotas, of the Por- tage plains, of the Regina country and until a few years ago of the Lcthbridge aml Cards; on districts. Today these places are veritable gra- naries and there is no reason to be- lieve any area of Southern Alberta to be semi-arid.

Afer dining at Luna Park the pre- late started out to see the sights. News of the cardinal's presence had sproacl and an immense crowd throng- ed about him. Undismayed, lie smiled blandly at the scene, nodded right and left, in friendly, democratic fash- ion. To the amazement oi his clerical friends the cardinal, catching sight of a shooting gallery, .remarked: "I you don't mind gentlemen, I'll a shot or two. Many's the rabbi I've hit on the run in tho old days.' Followed by Monsignor Hayes anc Father Lavelle, both obviously un easy at the unexpected sportivenes of their distinguished charge, th Cardinal strode quickly to the shoot ing gallery and picked up a rifle. It did not suit and he tried another To the amazement of all beholder he threw open the breach and ex amined the magazine mcchanisr with the eye of an expert. "This one is all he e> claimed, and in another minute 1 was blazing away at the sinalle bull's eye in the range. Ten shots he fired in quick suc- cession and six of his bullets found the mark. "Fine remarked one of the Cardinal's friends, while the watching crowd raised a cheer. "Yes, pretty calmly respond- ed His Eminence, "but I'm sadly out of practice to miss four shots." Then disregarding suggestions from the nervous clerics that it was time to be starting home, Cardinal I.oguc took in the side shows. He saw "The Shipwreck" and thought it fine, and then visited the mimic fight between the Monitor and the Mcrrimac with keen relish. The "Man Hunt" also pleased him immensely and again he declared that Ireland could never be truly happj without a Luna Park. Meanwhile enthusiasm had scize< upon the members of his party, and Chancellor Hayes, and Father Lavelle boldly entered the Dragon's Gorge; the Cardinal balked at ihat.
