Y Y 'Y Y NEW RAILWAY FOR PINCHER Charter Granted To a Com- pany At Last Session Of Parliament I Pincher Crtick, June the advent of summer, projected railway enterprises are always in order here. For the past three weeks whispers ot a proposed railroad which would make Pincher Creek a terminal point, ihave been cautiously uttered by one jor two more conversant with the .scheme than they seemed willing to acknowledge, for what reason one is !at a loss to understand. I As learned by your correspondent [the facts simply that within a tew days of the Dominion parliament 'proroguing at its last session a bharter was granted which cost its Womotcrs .about to rush through. This charter empowers a L-ompany to build and operate a rail- jroad from Carnston to Pincher Creek. 'From Pincher the line will cross the iJ.P.R. at Pincher thence to palgary. The promoters only applied Tor a charter to bviikl south from Pincher Station to Cardston for the MASQUERADING AS AN R.C. PRIEST >rcsent, hut; the line is eventually ncant to extend as far as Calgary, he McGuirc survey will he used, the romotcrs having offered Mr. McGuirc for the same, which has been ccepted. Although there was noth- ng stipulated in granting thc char- -n cr tribunal and finding a suitable meeting place, but it took no interest whatever in the search for more commodious quarters. "Event- ually the tribunal discovered in the top flat of the parliament building a huge ungainly, unlighted and unfur- nished attic, vacant. As there is nothing else .in. view the interested parties are in a quandry as to what to do. At present they are undecided whether to take possession of the "roof garden" or apply for permission to use the Chevalier Hall, the head- quarters of the Netherland Knights. The correspondent adds that the prevalent idea that the Dutch official- dom is going down on its knees to the great powers of the world begging them to come to Hague is rather orronous. Dutchmen will ;nbt be un- willing' if they come, but at the same time, they are quite willing that visit- ors should find accommodation for themselves. Sir Robt. Finlay is open- ing the case on behalf of the Canad- ian government and it is expected his speech will last a fortnight. By ar- rangement the speeches -of Attorney- General Robs.on and Senator Root will not be -delivered until the close of the arbitration.

What is supposed to be an organ- ized gang of "bullrushers" as they are known to the police, land office officials and others, received a set- back this morning when they endeav- ored to again turn the well-known trick of ejecting by brute force the man holding first place at the land office in the rush for a homestead thrown open for settlement. This morning It was the S. W. 1-4 of section 21, township 10, range 13, situated near Grassy Lake, that be- came open. It was previously owned as a pre-emption by William C. Llew- elyn but he having recently sold his homestead, by the regulations the pre- emption automatically became vacant. Llewelyn, however, had the right to purchase a homestead and thus he was attempting to apply on this quar- ter this morning. According to a land office official, at half past eight there were only two or three men present. Llewelyn and one or two others who had been since Friday or Saturday. or three minutes before nine o'clock, however, tho gang which J. W. 'Staf- ford, the agent, and other oiTioic'ls knew to be the same gang which had operated at numerous other rushes, drove up in a couple of aiuMniohiie? and immediately made a set ar elyn and forced him and his friends away, taking possession of the A'jiumber of spectators and sided immediately with wiin the result that a sort of Donnytvook fair scene was enacted. Some one ran for the police and Constable Taylor arrived and later Sergt. Lamh. They stopped the fighting but there their M powers ceased. Agent Stafford, who had witnessed the whole affair, how- ever, came put and asked them to eject off the premises the whole crowd with the exception of young Llewelyn, which was dons amid the cheers and applause of the spectators, made eiiicny of men engaged at work upon the Dominion watching from the open windows above. Llewelyn Got It secured the Quarter sec- tion but the matter did not rest there for he laid a charge of assault against Edward Douglas, one of the ringlead- ers of the gang, whom he declared had first seized him and endeavored to pull him away front the door over the shoulders of the crowd, fail- ing that bad succeeded by crawling through the crowd and seizing him by the legs! Douglas arrested Douglas was placed under arrest and taken to the' police station where the charge was booked. The court was just opening and the case proceeded with at once. The complainant was the first wit- ness and told thc court that he and some of his friends were standing on the steps of the land office this morn- ing.' where they had been since Satur- day morning. Shortly before nine o'clock defendant came up with a crowd of men and endeavored to take him from his place. The first time defendant grabbed him by the coat but. dirt not succeed !n getting him away, but, later succeeded in doing so. Defendant got him by the legs and vanned him out. Father's Evidence Job Llewelyn, father of the previous witness, followed and .told the court fence and over the shoulders of the crowd and seize witness' son by the coat. Witness grabbed hold of de- fendant and asked him what he meant, and the witness was immed- iately seized from behind by one else and dragged out, but he suc- ceeded in dragging accused with him. He went away for a policeman and came back with one and saw that defendant with four or five others had gained possession of the steps. Mr. Stafford came out and ordered the police to put them away and let his son. return to his position. Cross- examined by defendant he said he was standing next his son when de- fendant grabbed the latter. Sergt. Lamb testified that he went to accused was the man who had caused all the dis- turbance. Defendant was what the police called a a mem- ber of tlce at DR.

Atwood, architect of this town, has taken the contract to build a Dutch church liere, and the specifications are in readiness for the procedure of the work. A petition is also in circula- tion for funds for erecting a Presby- terian church, and the work of erec- tion is expected soon to be under way. The Crown Lumber Co., is erecting a large two-story office, with residence on the second floor. Bert riansen, manager, slates that the enormous increase in the business of late has rendered the present office very inadequate for the purpose Building is going on rapidly" in the town and surrounding which is evidenced by the increasing month- ly reports at the lumber offirc here. The new bowling hall, -which has recently been completed, will swing open its doors the first of the week. Mr. has begun the work on -the sew depot here, and the town water tank is nearing completion. There is a splendid opening he-re for a goon painter and decorator, md abundant work is awaiting. Thc merchants of Monarch are hav- a busy season, and each testifies that a rush is on continuously. This is an indication of an increased farm- ing community and speaks well of the farming conditions of the district. Commercial travellers are frequent callers in the town, and" each departs with a smile of satisfaction that he has put through his intended sales. The new hotel is being lauded for its excellent cuisine and splemliri ser- ASSEMBLY IN VERY WARM SESSION Queen's University And Church Union Debated Halifax, .Jmie debate the warmest nature was precipitated in the General Assembly to-day t when the Commission Of Queen's 'Univers- ity named in the assembly' of" 1909' i made its report. Popular interest; in the discussion was shown by the fact that the attendance both of commis- sioners and general public was larger than any day last week. Rev. "Dr. Lyle, Moderator of thc Assembly of 1909. laid the report of the commis- sion before the assembly, when MacLeod, of Barrie, at once asked whether the minority report ought to be submitted at that juncture.- A move was apparently made by friends of separation to shut out this report on a technicality, and half a dozen Points of order were raised. Four or five speakers were on" the platform at one time 'and the Moderator spent a strenuous half hour. --It was finally decided to accept both reports and there were submitted; Church Union The first mention of "church" union was made at thc assembly in the morning'session. Dr. Patrick, of Win- nipeg, read the report of the Union Committee which was in absolate ac- cordance with the cause of the uiion. After giving some account of, and stating clearly various arguments for" union the report recommended .that the statement be sent down to the Presbyteries for a vote, such' vote to be taken prior to May 1911. Prin- cipal McKay, on behalf 0E those op- posed to the union secured permis- sion to have an alternate plan pre- sented. Business is so great that the assembly may be compelled to re- main in session till the end of the week.
