P. Kroning, chief of detectives of the Edmonton police force, and formerly sergeant on the Lethbridge force, under ex-Chief W. K. Davis, is in danger every hour. Tho following Edmonton dispatch tells of the terrible fate Hanging over him: 'Commissioner H. S. Booth has re- ceived a letter written in a .very il- literate hand, telling him that if he does not dismiss the present chief .of detectives, he will lose his life and ihis family will die with him.- 'Tho 'writer says he represents fifty citizens, and complains bitterly of the manner' In which the negro women lave been treated, and that doors of louses are broken in. Death is :hreatenod both the commissioner ind the chief of detectives. "The letter, after criticising the ac- tion of the police, asKB for the imme- diate removal of Chief of Detectives Kroning, and says: 'Say, here is what s going to take place if you don't re- move this chief of detectives inside of so ninny days, you and your whole family are going to lose your lives, and we, the Citer Sous of Edmonton are not' going to have this town mis- treated by a bunch of cut-throats like you. We will burn every house and we aim to kilt "Kroney" (meaning Kronlng) inside of twenty days if something is not done. If you re- move him you will save your wife, and if you doa't you will lose her head and yours, too.'" The Simpson Co. Limited Agents for Lethtridge striding the capacity tit a car, ac cording to. the weight of the material carried. Figuring oats at thirty-four pounds to the bushel, which up to hat time' was the standard every vhere, the yard-men'had loaded the ars exactly to the load-lines, and b) all ordinary laws, the cars were 0. In the course ol time the- trouble came up to General the Western Division, William Whyte 4c did not swear at anybody. That wasn't his way. He .listened to the end, anil then said maltcr-of-facth 'Suppose you weight those oats The division superintendent open- ed his mouth to speak, thought bet ter of it, and sought a scale with a bushel of oats. i six thirty-eight These wcstern- oats took from forty to six- pounds of iron to balance them, and the mystery was solved. Why to had used plain, sane common- sense, which aEter all is about as uncommon as any other quality of mankind and in three minutes had settled a difficulty over which the whole prairie section of the line had boggled for weeks."

WEST VIRGINIA COAL STRIKE HOSTILITIES BREAK OUT AGAIN Colliers, W. Va., June attack was made early .today on tlic Locust Orove. mine, of the West Vir- ginia and Pillsburg Coal company, where a strike lias been in progress tinee last September. Shots wcro fired from the hill .tops and a dyna- mite bomb was exploded at, the mine opening as the men were going .to .work. Deputy sheriffs scoured the hills in search of the attacking pnr- ty, hut without result. Union told the, strikers last night that; strike benefit's due yesterday would not. be paid for several weeks as the money was not available. I They Were Alberta Oats John Arbuthnplte, willing bt the late Sir William Whyte in June Cau- I ada Monthly, tolls a characteristic i story of.him when he was general su- i norinlendcnt of the western division on the Canadian 1'aclllc. He says "Men who worked beside him twen- ty years ago tell many stories of the practical common-sense that lie brought, to bear on the problems of the. road from the beginning of his ser- vice. The story of the Edmonton oavs is urn: M lite most typical, "iu. his first general superintendent days, the Canadian 1'acillc was hav- ing, a world of trouble with i.ts freight cars engaged in carrying oats. There..was a large and increasing ton- nage of grain to be hauled, and :all the rolling stock was needed. Yet the repair shops were in constant re- ceipt1 of freight cars which came, limp- ing in with ruined journals, broken down apparently by overloading. The shops swore at the yard-men, and the division superintendent, with his desk- piled up with kicks from irate farm- ers, swore at the shops.
