Dr.' Pringle" before the' Presby- terian assembly at Winnipeg, in .which the latter denounced the scan- dals, which, he said, polluted public and private life in the. Yukon. "There is -no truth in. the said Mr.' Henderson. "Speaking of tho conditions- as J find them in Dawson they will cbinpara-.favorably with those prevailing in any other city in Western Canada. If Mr.- -..Pringle's -remarks were intended to convey the idea, they were worse' ho not! told HID truth. I can only describe him is an agitator. His remarks .arc made. for political ends. In fact he told me he had not been treated well by 'icvcs what he says, why did not he the Liberal party. If he really bc- co operate with me in carrying out she measure of reform passed at the last .session of the 'Yukon -council. Instead, since going' to Dawson, I have received no practical sympathy rrom Mr. Pringle in my efforts to- .wards a betterment of the country." Mr. Henderson has boon at Ottawa and is returning to Dawson.

STRIKERS MAY DO PICKET DUTY Cardston, Juno storm has proved a memorable one. Tim foot bridges are all out and the traffic bridge on Main Street was put out of business by the stream changing its course and cutting a new "channel south .of the bridge. Two dwelling-houses in Cardston have been- totally destroyed. The house of W. 0. Lee from which -Mr. Jas. Hampton and fgmily remov- ed as mentioned in our last letter, was taken down stream near noon on Friday last. It settled down into the .stream about ten. rods from its former position, the lower storey be- ing crushed and the roof with a por- tion of the sides holding together arid the apex being visible above the Waters during the whole of the down- pour. All the outbuildings were swept away. About ten o'clock Friday night the residence of Mr. Henry' Cook dropped oil into the torrent and wns swept stream. The building soon went "to- pieces but not until it had broken the electric light wires C3 it swept by the residence of Mr. Jbey. This loss was through stream changing channel and though Mr. Cook loses a line resi- dence, the change no doubt saved the power house and possibly the south part of Main street from destruction. As it is the "business section is not injured and lighls are going on the north all are thankful that the damage is no'more. Early Friday morning the residents i creek bottom began moving it; Miv took out his fa- mily very co in foil ably with a sheep ir-ngon.

The casket for the infant child of Mr, Harkcr WJIS crossed by swinging it from the telephone wires. The waters were slowly receding and a boat used in bridge construc- tion was utilized for a miniature, fer- ry on Saturday. The bridge was kept in place through hard work on Sunday. The main stroam was diverted by debris so as to strike the piles of the ap- proach. Three of these went out and the filling of "the pier also. The pier was refilled and repaired go as to be kept safely in place. Monday morning tho earth ap- proach, which had been partly cut out, was bridged and a foot bridge constructed KO that communication was again rarely established between the north and south sides. Team? Cnn now i... and Civil Service act as early as pos- sible, but .he added that the first duty of the House was to pass supply. Mr. B.ordVn said that while it was a matter for the Government to de- did not think that the intro- duction of the Civil Service bill would delay supply. A discussion -of the riii'ilia .esti- mates'was entered upon with the un-l derstanding that one item of 000 should stand and that full lati- tude would be'aliowed for discussion in that connection on any question in connection with the department. This suggestion was made bythc minister of militia, object of facilitat- ing the: passage of supply and was ac- "copled by. the Opposition. The first item taken was one of a.-million dol- lars for the annual drill and in con- nection with this, Sir Frederick an- nounced his plans for the and Quebec Tercentenary as far as they had. been worked out. The total force at Quebec had been limited to 000 by the request of the Tercenten- ary Commission. The city militia will go in battal- lions though not in full strength. others. A pas- senger train from Monos ran off the track and several were demolish- ed- The wrerkivge immediately caught fire and was consumed. It wns with much difficulty that the injured wore removed from the wreckage bo- fore the Humes rwu-liwl them. IS BREAKING ALL RECORDS They will" do their annual drill and will be paid for that but will not be paid extra for the trip to Quebec except their expenses. The rural militia will be represented by a com- pany from each battalion, the choos- ing to be left to Brigadier General Otter and tiie various Colonels. The men will be paid fur the time they are at Quebec plus expenses buf, noi for more than twelve days. The to tal representation will prob.ihly bo divided between the rural and urban troops. All the cavalry will go and a certain amount of field and garri- son arti'lery. II. L. Burden said that unless more of the rural militia were sent there would be trouble. Tiie men who were rejected from going to Que- bec would refuse, to go to camp. The minister replied that the number of men to be sent was fixed by the Bat- tlefields Commissioner at 12.000. The chief objection was the difliculty of transportation at a time when all the accommodation by rail or water would be used for the general public. After an hour's discussion the vote was passed. According to information that the Herald has received there is a prob- ability of trouble this summer be- tween the mine operators" ami the men, in the Crow's Nest Tass mines. The trouble will be the result oi a break between the companies and .sonif of the union officials who have boon keeping things quiet for them. The comUUons in the mines have not been satisfactory to the men but through the influence of the paid un- ion ollicinls, no trouble has arisen. Jlecently when the management: f o! one of the large mines changed, it was discovered that the previous manager had been paying a promin- ent district union official six hundred dollars month which was distribut- ed among leaders of tho local unions and one or two district officials, to pay them for keeping things quiet among the men. The new manage- ment cut off this monthly contribu- tion and now the beneficiaries threa- ten to make trouble with the men It is not known whether compan- ies paid the monthly levy or not. The revelation will likely cause trouble among the leaders of the miners unions and the members will probably go after the niu-it who were in their employers' hire in this man- ner. llogina, Sask., June pre- mier made an important announce- ment regarding the licenses 'at the House this morning when the liquor bill was up for third reading. The minister of agriculture read a tele- gram from the Presbyterian general assembly at Winnipeg, as follows: ''Following resolution unanimously adopted and ordered transmitted: 'General assembly is rejoicing in learning of the action the Saskatch- ewan government is now taking in granting to municipalities the right of local vote on a simple majority vote shortening hours of sale, closing bars on public and doing away with club .liquor licenses and other advanced provisions for the re- strfctlou of liqubr traffic. (Signed) J. G. Shearer." Mr. Scott said tluit although by ho means the most important, the" pro-'-' vision withdrawing from clubs the right to sell liquor: had received the most criticism at the hands of the Opposition and through the country. On a single point he desired to say that in Saskatchewan today there was not one club fulfilling functions of a home to the proper its members that is providing meals or sleeping accommodation, as clubs of Eastern Canada and the United "States do. Without committing the 'government to policy, however, he would say that when the "time came the Saskatche-' wan clubs did fill the function, when they provide meals and beds and- be- come the home of members, they would consider favorably the .restor- ing of the right to'dispose of liquor- among friends of members and mem-- hers. GET A'ttEHSE TO DRINK BOOZE VICTORY FOR: M.IGHSS Albany, N. Y., June Hughes' anti-gambling bill was de- clared passed at 12.45 by a vote oi 26 to 25.. Senator Foelker's grit and the vote of the new Senator Wallace saved tiie day .and the signature of Governor Hughes of course taken for granted, will put the bill upon the j statute books. Governor Hughes when informed of Uie passage of the bill made no at- tempt to conceal his elation. He sajd: "E am deeply gratified at this result.

These in brief arc the chief points of a plan announced by E. E.

The Government promised an answer by Thursday next. The trail will cost about and its construction would mean, it is alleged, that all supplies for tho construction of the Yellow Head Pass section of the G. T. P. would be sent by that route. It is claimed that would mean the pur- chase, of supplies approximately in value in British Columbia instead of in Calgary. If the road is not constructed the supplies will be sent via Edmonton.
