He showed up at the wrestling match last night and challenged the winner of the Maxwell-Macdonald bout. Chief Gillespie undertook to dissuade him whereupon he challenged the chief. Taking him up, the chief jockeyed him outside the building ana sccurcu the first fall in short order. Un- daunted Jonathan came back again but the chief after a short tussle on the soft mat of mud got the second fall.

NORTH-WEST ASSOCIATION OF STATIONARY ENGINEERS Meet in the L'abor Hall every sec- ond and fourth Mondays in ths month. Employers requiring certificated en- gineers, and engineers out of employ- ment, would do well to communicate with us. ROBERT NEVIN, Chief. GEO. BRUCE, Secretary. 13-lyr The famous flood of 1902 is likely to be surpassed by the flood of 1903, and it is confidently stated by those who know that tomorrow will see the great- est flood ever known on the Belly Riv- er. Rain has been falling almost con- tinuously. for" forty-eight hours and air tlie rivers are running-with tre- mendous force. The railway systems are almost completely tied up; tele- graphic, service is practically useless and business is at a standstill. The Belly river has risen six feet since yesterday and is rising at the rate of between four and five inches an hour. Walter Appleby was forced to move out of the old Ashcroft house near the pump house this morning half a dozen Mounted Police, Consta- ble Cribb, of the city police, assisted by three teams of.Jas. Ashcroft's be- ing called upon to get his effects away in time. The city pumps are not in any.dan- ger as they are still five- feet above the water and can run while still several feet under water. The galleries may get filled by the mud carried in. The work of the bridge gang is completely tied up but they have not lost any of their working apparatus. Great Rush of Water Reports to the Alberta Railway and Irrigation Co. office from various points in their service say that the riv- ers, creeks and coulees are full. Last year the high water at the headgates on the St. Mary's was seven thousand cubic feet per second but this morn- ing it was running thirty thousand and is still rising while the raiin is falling just as hard as ever. Willow Creek, Lee's Creek, Spring Coulee and the Pot Hole are all raging torrents, the last named running ten thousand per second at Magrath. Fears are entertained at the bridge 'there. Lee's Creek has overflowed the whole bot- tom at, Cardston and people are being taken from their upstairs windows in boats. This morning R. W. Pilling who is in the city received a message from his home stating that. they had to move out. A. R. I. Tracks Carried Away About ten o'clock this morning the dam at the big reservoir at the Knight Sugar factory at Raymond broke and carried away a portion of the A. R. I. track. The Cardston local went out this morning as usual, got as far as Stirling alright but never reach- ed Raymond and is now back here. The telegraph and telephone lines have not been working past Magrath since ton o'clock and it is not known how affairs are there. C. P. R. Tied Up The C. P. R. west line is completely tied up. There is a report that the bridge over Pincher Creek at Brocket went down with No. 6 and that three of the train crew were killed but the latter. part oi the report has not as yet been confirmed. The Lethbridge j operator cannot get the gires further west than St. Mary's The fact re- mains that neither No. 6 nor No. 8, the eastbound flyer has arrived yet. This morning at S.30 a train came in from Macleod to take the Flyer's run. When it arrived the engine look- ed like an old mud scow being com- pletely covered with, mud and the conductor and his crew looked like ditch navvies. Near St. Mary's they ran into a three foot mud slide and had to dig through it to get here. A train "taking the transferred pas- sengers from No, 6 at Brocket was sup- posed to have arrived here at noon but the latest report says that it ran into a big mud slide this side of St. Mary's and no one knows when it will arrive. The City Being Soaked In town people are having a serious time of it. Cellars are filled, ware- houses flooded and sewer trenches in the streets and lawns are tailing in. The old wooden buildings are leaking like sieves and the wind is driving the rain through the roofs of even the newer and better buildings. Crops All Right The rain as yet has not been suffi- cient to do any damage to the crops nor will it unless the water stands for a long time. A good deal of the low- lying flat land between Calgary and Mr. Harrison is stationed at Leth- bridge, Wesley Church, again, but a minister has not yet been named for Westminster Church. F. Cook is lo- cated at Huntsville, P. S- Parrott at Sundial, W. A. Lewis at Macleod, William Hollingsworth at Granuni, H. Bosomvorth at Rocky Coulee, R. E. Finlay at Pincher Creek, J. F-. Carelton at Lundbreck, S. S. Peat at Fishburn, Henry HadcJon at Frank, Charles Bishop at Macleod south, L. R. Macdonald at Okotoks, A. A. Ly- tle, at present at Westminster church at Ridgeview, E. S. Bishop at Nan- ton, A. B. Argue at'Claresholm, Jos. F. Woodsworth at Carmengav, A. H. Leslie at Stavely, T. P. Perry at High River. W. R. Seeley of Pincher Creek goes to Springvalei in the Red Deer dis- trict. Thos. Powell of Maple Creek, is transferred to Lacombe, Wm. 3x. Allen, of Vegreville to Blackfalls, J. B. Howard to H. E. ordon Qt Lacombe to Strathcona, W. Daly to Vegreville, G. W. Johnstone to Maple Creek, R. M. lark to Gull Lake. All these changes are subject to al- teration on the second draft. ITALY ADMIRES BRIM POLICY Rome, June the discus- sion of the foreign office budget in the Chamber of Deputies yesterday, Signor Titoni, the foreign minister delivered a speech which was intend- remove the impression of a disagree- ment among the powers, especially be txveen Great Britain and Italy on the Macedonian question. He cited the fact that Prance had followed along same lines as Italy and without losing her friendship with England except to make it stronger. He de- clared that the British proposals re- garding Macedonia were humanitarian deals, while the Russian proposals were of practical value. Macleod is under water but no injury will come to any grain but that which has not yet got a good start. Around Lethbridge no land is reported to be flooded as it is more rolling and bet- ter drained. It is not. expected that any of the crops will suffer in this district School Closed School was closed this morning. A C11Y COUNCIL WAS SCORED large number of pupils came in spite of the rain but as the basement was flooded it was impossible to heat the building. Amount of Rainfall Between 7.30 yesterday morning and the same time today .95 inches of rain had fallen which added to the 1.14 inches reported yesterday makes a total of 2.09 inches in forty-eight hours and it has been raining hard ever since. Bad at Pincher A telephone message from the Her- ald correspondent at Pincher Creek received late this afternoon says that the bridge at Brocket was broken but not washed out. The east bound train is on one side of the bridge and the westbound on the other. They exchanged passengers and and wil lendeavor to return. The Pinohfr is vprv hifrh, The South Fork has broken all records and is beginning to widen out, having washed away its banks in many plac- es. Eight at the town the banks have been badly cut away and many hous- es are in danger. The people and their effects are being moved safely, however. It is still raining hard with no sign of stopping. Flooded Excavation The excavation for the new Knox church was flooded to a depth of three feet yesterday. The sewer connec- tions were made but the surface wa- ter, caused by the incessant rains in running along a low place over the sewer soaked in through the loose earth and besides flooding the excava- tion, blocked the sewer connection with earth. With some difficulty this was removed and the water drained off. Fortunately no damage was done. Blocks Trains in Montana Helena, Montana, June 5. The (From Friday's Daily.) At the Ratepayers Association meeting last night J. W. Boulton. re- quested that publicity be given the facts concerning the recent request of the trustees of Westminster Church. for a. crossing across Westminster Road opposite the church. "The said Mr. Boulton, "had sent the laconic reply that they couldn't as the church, was outside the city 'The church is out- side but the crossing asked for would not be outside and the street was in- side and we did not .ask for a walk to the church.. It is a shame to make the hundreds of people going to the church flounder through the mud to get there." He did not object to the refusal so much as the spirit shown by the council in the matter. In this connection A. Frayne asked if the C.P.R. and A. R. I. freight sheds and station were inside the city limits. The plan of the city showed they were not and yet the city had built four crossings Road to these on Baroness greatest railway blockade in the his- tory of Montana has resulted from the rainfall of the last week. Last night the streets of Helena were flooded and every side of the city, railway tracks are washed out. A report said last night that, the Norther tracks at Wool! Creek are under thirty inches of water. Railroad officials say it is impossible to say when traffic will be resumed. HODGINS INQUIRY Ottawa, Juno the Hodgins in- quiry yesterday afternoon Major said that if Mr. Grant, in- specting engineer, of .the Transcon- tinental commission had added to the cost o? the line by ovcrclassifica- tion, it was an orror cf judgment and not deliberate n-rong doing. The inquiry was adjourned for a week. In the meantime Chief Engineer Lumsden, of the Transcontinental commission and Mr. Wood, assistant chief engineer of the Grand Trunk Pacific will go over the district which Major Hodgins formerly had charge of.

SUNDAY ROASTS THE CLERGY Ball Player Evangelist TeHs isters Why They Fail Min- Pitsburg, Pa., June minis- ters of Pittsburg invited Evangelist Billy Sunday, former ball player to come to them and deliver a lecture on "Why Some Ministers Fail." Sunday reached town from Sharon, Pa., and some of the ministers are sorry he came, for his talk in the fashionable First Presbyterian church was from the shoulder and there was no minc- ing of words. He roasted the local ministers fearfully, saying that some of them ought to be back on the farm. In part Sunday said: "Your churches of today have de- generated into third and fourth rate amusement houses. The congrega- tions are made up largely of cham- pagne guzzling, beer drinking, wine sizzling, Sunday golf playing, novel reading persons, who lie back and sing "Throw Out the Life when thay couldn't throw out a clothes line. Sunday said that one of the reasons most ministers failed was because they were full of "lemonade and but- termilk, instead of tobasco sauce and mustard." At one point he shouted: "I preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. I preach heaven and hell. I go back to the old theology. If the consensus of opinion says one thing and the lat- est scholarship says another, then the latest, scholarship can go plumb to for all I care." the.- evangelist said many of the j ministers of the present day werej "fudgo eating mollycoddles, who arc continually springing bum bill Icon to their congregations." He assorted that few ministers of tod ay are any- thing but salary quacks, will- ing to accept social distinction, and that many of them are qualified can- didates for the "funny" house. Continuing, he said: "Some of you ministers arc con- trolled by richos, and not by the bi- ble. Many of you are grafters, pure and simple. You know this, too. 1 There arc some of you preaching to- TRY WM.

During Sunday's address some am- usement was provoked by his recog- nition of High Sheriff Addison G. Gumbert, of Pittsburg, who used to play ball in Sunday's time with Chi- cago. Bumbert slipped into church quietly, but Sunday recognized him and shouted: "There's just room for one more sinner up front here. You come up her, 'Ad' and get into the game. You'll enjoy it, T know." High Sheriff Gumbert walked up and took the seat designated by his old team mate and took a lively pnrt in the proceedings, Sunday frequently using him as the butt of some joke. Gumbert laughed aloud when Sunday- said he would like to tear down all the religious seminaries in the coun- try and duck the professors in mud puddles. FERN'IE SEPARATION Fernio, B. C., June first sepurutimi case over tried in East Kootonay, occupied the attention of his lordship Judge Irving for the space of twenty minutes, when Wil- liam Moore was granted a separation from his wife on the usual statutory grounds.
