ABLE TO PAY SEARCHING FOR THE MURDERER C Met at the Hat The Tenth Annual meeting of the Alberta Baptist Association, were held this week at Medicine Hat. Al- though there were fewer present than usual, ill parts of Al- berta were represented. Others pres were: Rev. A. P. principal of Brandon College; Rev; W.T.; Stackhouse, M. A.

The associational sermon .was preachedvby the Rev. B. Goodfield, B. A., Red Deer. His subject was Christ's commission to the Church, "Go Preach the Gospel." Mr. Good- field dealt in a masterly way with the many social and political .problems that confront the church today, and used fcome .very strong statements in speaking of some of the politicians of the present time. His chief' argu- ment, throughout his discourse, was that only the Gospel of Christ could meet the demands of humanity and solve -the problems of the'world. The educational address was deliv- ered by Dr. McDiarmid, of Brandon, as 'his subjecl The duty of the church was to bring life the the and the more: general and the better the education, the more real and more useful the life. The subject of -Home Missions was NO. Its Vancouver, B.

The mulatto who escaped from the Belingham police yesterday was later arrested at Stan wood fifty miles south of here, was taken to Blaine at noon and- tamed over to Chief Constable Spain. He is an octoroon named Joe Fisher. He admits he was at Clover- dale the day of the murder and walk- ed to Blaine that afternoon. Vancouver, B.

Butchers said that the meat trade was fast "recov- ering" from the depression resulting from the recent financial stringency and that the increase in the consump- tion of meats "necessitated an ad- vance." f In the cattle market cbeves on the hoof were selling at the highest at- tained since 1006, and receipts during the last two weeks were the lightest in nearly a quarter of a century. While the .advance in the .price oi meats is likely to induce the; house- wife to' look.for fruits, or fish as a substitute, butchers say that should there, be any great reduction iu the conviiiiipiibu they will put .'aside liberal stocks as for better trade.

REPUBLICANS AT CHICAGO Regina, Sask., June third session" oi the Saskatchewan Legisla- ture was prorogued this morning by Lieut. Governor Forget, before a full attendance of the members. Th'e ceremony was witnessed by a large number of the public. The section of a bill providing for the election of members of the Legislative Assembly, which allows the returning officer to marke the ballots without invalidating them, was criticized by Mr. Haultain who said that the action would go long way towards destroying the secrecy of the ballot and would al-j low, a good deal of wrong doing. Mr. Turgeon said the clauses had been fully, considered in committee and "restrictions were thrown around them by making the penalty for wrong doing heavy. They were, how- ever, of the opinion that acts of omis- sion or commission of the officials in charge of he polling booths should not spoil the ballot. The premier moved the third read- ing of the Legislative Assembly bill. Mr. Haultain moved an amendment that it- be- referred baclr to the com- mittee for the. purpose of striking out the clause which provided foi five years instead of a four year term. He objected to so important an am- endment being introduced at the last hour of the last day of ho session and said that the amendment'was in the wrong direction. The tendency of the times, said Mr. Haultain, was in the direction of shortening the term of legislature rather than lengthen- ing it.

Dear ir.-fAt a meeting of the Council of thetLethbridge Board- of Trade on j Friday evening, June 5th a circular sent out under your signa- ture announcing a series of lectures to be deKvened on drj' -farming by Professor Campbell, came up for con- sideration, and that part in which it is stated "We are convinced that the system recommended by 'Professor Campbell, ff- properly practiced is one which will make possible the pro- duction of large yiolds in the South- ern part of Alberta, where now 'the season must be most favorable if fair crops are to be was looked1 upon as a misrepresenta- Kon of conditions in that part of the province known as Southern Al- bertai The Board has no objection to our farmers being enlightened on the system of dry farming, but ser- iously disputes the. implication' in your circular that this part of the province is not producing large yields oi grain, and particularly that clause "Where now the scasob must be the most favorable, even if fair V _ crops are to be expected." There are a few dry sections in the south, but as a matter of truth, the grain yield in the district' known as Southern Alberta, is as large, if not larger than any other sect-ion of this Pro- vince or of Western Canada. The crop statistics in of your department would establish that fact. The Lethbridge Board of Trad< feels that your department, supposed to be in touch with agricultural con ditions in all pnrts of the province o Alberta, is completely ignorant ot th situation in Southern Alberta.

REPLY In reply Mr. Harcourt has sent the ollowing letter: Edmonton, June 10th, 1908 H. J. H. Skeith, Esq., Sec. Board of .Lethbridge, Sir, I am in receipt of your favor of 6th instant, with' reference to Mis misrepresentation of the south coim- ry in a circular letter' sontr- eat with regard to the lectures to given by Campbell on Thi.? circular letter wns prepared in thu office of the Supcriutcndent of Fairs and Institutes, and I presume the Su- perintendent intended only to empha- size the fact that it required favor- able seasons to grow crops, and made the statement unduly strong ia order to emphasize the advisability of farmers attending Prof. Campbell's lectures. I am nilly perswuied that the Superintendent of Fairs and In- stitutes knows the situation In the southern portion of the Province thoroughly, nnd would not have said intentionally anything that would m the least detract from' .the good name of your district. That no reflection was intended is amply- evidenced by the i'uct that the circular letter was sent out to farmers anorothers likely to attend these meetings throughout the whole of that portion of Pro- vince running to the south of Dids- bury, and it was not- sent outside of the Province, consequently while not stating the situation. correctly, yet I fail to sec that any particular dam- age has been done to any district so far aH the outside world is concerned. You must admit that the last few years- have the most favorable years for the growth of crops, that it unfair to draw too the -returns obtninrd during t.hp few years, consequently in a very LAW IN THE FAR Sir Wilfrid's Cwrespafctce Wti Rev. 1 G. fact that iKis'circular letter has been carried into more damage to the district than any other 'staterticnts which Depart- ment has sent out. J. note your' reference to the crop report of two years ago, reading as follows: "The careless preparation of crop reports two years ago did this district more damage than you imag- ine." I wish to correct your impres- sion of this. The reports were not prepared in a careless manner, but were based entirely upon the crop re- ports sent in by the Crop Correspon- dents of'your own district. Without stating whether your reports were right or wrong, the Department pub- lished the- estimate prepared by your Board of Trade in a supplementary Bulletin and gave it ,thc .same distri- bution as the original bulletin. The Department, however, waited for time to vindicate its ing itself by calling attention to the very high averages which, your Board claimed for the district. The actual returns from the threshers of your district showed that the returns were not nearly so "high as your Board had as the follow- ing statement will show: Board of. Trade Kstmiate Acres Bushels Average Wheat spring 26. Wheat winter 22. -18. Rarfey 20. Actual Returns spring 21.79 Wheat winter 16.71 Oats Barley 36.50 602 28.09 In the interests of your section of the country the Department has not taken the trouble of contradicting your boom statement because that is what it was felt to be at the time it was pub- lished. Crop averages arc very peculiar things.

It will be remembered that some weeks ago the miners, in Coleman struck because the company wanted them to accept a new scale of wages. The men claim ed the proposition made was'unfair, since an agreement that does not expire until April 1st, 1909, been entered into by both parties concerned and they were determined to hold the company to The compauy oh their part claimed, that when a man gets over five dollars a. indeed, six or seven or more, he'was getting more than they could afford to pay espec ially under the existing Financial con- ditions. They claim it is not possible to pay the shareholders the dividends they should naturally expect from a, going concern such as this mine un- doubtedly'is. They are quito willing to pay a fair day's wage for a fair day's work not merely a living wage but one upon which a man may bo able to save something as well. The men struck when proposed this and for two days -were idle when a compromise by, which both parties- agreed to submit the dispute joint disputes com- mittee-for settlement, each agreeing to abide by whatever decision was arrived at. The men then returned to work and everybody lias been anx iously awaiting the sitting nnd the finding of the court. And now it is over. The trouble at Michel gave them something else to discuss and settle. Today the word has been given ,out that the Michel miners lost their case while the Cole- man men vvou theirs. This is per- haps as all expected in the face of the facts and the agreement. It simply means that the present sys tern of Swages will continue until Ap ril 1st, 1009, when a new agrcemen will have to be made.

Hughes complained that the Peace River Colonization -and Land Development company had not been living up to the terms of the contract with the Government. Mr. Oliver, in r.eply said the con- tract was entered, into for-the pur- pose of attracting settlers to the Peace River district. Jhe Government, how- over, was now seeking to cancel con- cessions though recent decision .of Yukon appeals made it doubtful whe- ther the Governmet had the Bright of cancellation.

Then the com- pany wil hold the power in their hands and few doubt but that the day's wage system will be establish ed. If a wage of four dollars and fifty cents of five dollars a day is given, nwny declare they will bo satisfied.
