While the heavy rains In the district visited did some 'slight and temporary damage to the railway tracks, they also put the country in splendid condition from an agricultural standpoint, and not only has the winter wheat attained a height of from 24 to 30 Inches, but the heads are forming in many (lelds. The spring wheat Is fron> 12 to 15 inches high, and in all three of the western provinces tlie crop is from three to five weeks ahead of last year. Mr. Doupe states that while work the i\ow line from Lcthljridgo to Jlac-Jeod H'ns dolnycd somewhat oy the recent rains, tlio contractors, JloaaiK. .Janson & McDonald have now a force of sub-contractors with InrgJ gangs of men distriljutod over practically the entire route and the construction work is being pushed to completion.

The new town has licen named Mon-. arch- and Is superbly situated about ono-half mile from tho bank of  tho Old Man river, in the centre of a rich agricultural district. The Canadian Pacific railway hus recently sold wild land in the neighborhood ns high as $2.'> per ncro, although tlie site for the new town is at present some 'Citlccn miles from >\ railroad, At Monnrclrtho C. P. R. will mal:o a departure from the usual storco-typoil method ot laying out a new community and instructions have bee,, issued that the plans include a large park to bo situated in tho heart o,' the townsite. With regard to general conditions througliout tho northwest, Mr. Doupe states that collections' aro being well mot over tlio whole country, and that while tho wostornors are cautious about buying, all liabilities were met promptly. GOT OUT OF JAIL HAIFBREED CAUGHT Fancheneuve Brought to the City From Spokane Escaped 2 Years J�an Baptlsto Fauohenouvo, nlins Jack Miller, is behind tlie bars again, Detective Egnn having brought him to tho barracks on Saturday morning from Spokane, Wash., where lie was brought by Deputy Sheriff, P.

Deputy Sheriff Hull aeconi-jinnied Detective Fgan, and they took no cliancos witJi tlio despol-ado, wlio is dressed with a 35lb. Oregon boot.

A GOOD GAME SCORE ATIE Football Match Between Macleod and Lethbridge Thorc was a big surprise pai'ty han-dcil out to tho Lethbridge .Riingers on Saturday evening when tho Macleod Y. M.

Tiie Jlaclcod boys came in on tho Calgary local which was delayed over two hours and went right onto � the field without having aav supper and although they tircs require las not IJeen met. Tlie (iroviiicial government explains that the statute fixes the completion of revi.>iion for July 1 and allows only one place in each county for the silting of revision courts. Mr Borden is himself desirous of meeting some of the.valid objections of the Government to tho present conditions in Manitoba and it is probable that the two leaders n� a result of tho negolintions now going on, hiay bo able to reacli some compromise satisfactory lo both parties. PEOPLE ON THE MOVE Jfrs. C. Charles went lo Calgary this afternoon on the local. Jlrs, V. Hfner was a jiasscngor on tho local tor Calgary this afternoon.

Hunter, general manager of the Western Canada Land Co,, has ust returned from a trip to central Ohio, where he sold a group of Ohio capitalists 4,800 acres of land located near Now Dayton, The most gratifying part of this sale is that the purchasers have formed a stock company known us the Miami Furming Co., with a capital stock fully paid up of 4100,000. same to be incorporated under the laws of Ohio and Alberta. $40,000 of this amount is to be used for immediate improvement. They already have one steam plow al work and will seed over 500 acres this fall, Tlie-balance of this years' appropriation will be used in erecting buildings, sinking wells, ncing, etc, Mr. Hunter will assume the temporary management oi this farm until suitable superintendent can be secured. Wo aro pleased to see sales of this kind as Ohio is a good slate to draw settlers from ond development work of this nature is bound to not only to attract additional oapital but prove to ,putsiders tho earning power of Alberta lands, Mr. Hunter.will probably remain at his now Lotlibridge ofllca on Glyn St. between Irrigation 'Hall and tho de pot, tho bttlancu of tho summer. BIG FARM FOR SWiALL FRUITS Several. Calgary, paiiii'ii nRsoeialed with C. ';Pi _ M'-Cidoeii own eighty acres of; irrignii-d land, oast ot the city ftnd^ n'ro RMing to start a f/irui for small fruits. Tlioy consider that the land and climuti! here is beltei; suited to the riu-iiig of berries and currants than d'ri; iliose ot British Columbia, and ihat the prairie provinces can. be supplied- with fruit from Southern Albf^Ttn. Thoy are starting work at;once, getting ready lor a yield in 1909. T. s. Mckenzie GOING -TO FARM T. S. McKenKio, the local field man ager for the O. ;W. ,Keh' Co., has decided -to settle pcrmauiiitly in Loth-bridge district and to tliat end has purchased a section i4 hind on the Cameron Ranch.

' Mr. McKcnzic is'.tiu' kind of settler this country wants.x During the time he has been in Lethbhilt'e lie lias become well known, asd iniUlic spirited citizen, ready to pro/note nny work that is good for the' :'dy ni- country.

NEWYORKIS LOSING ITS TRADE Montreal Beats Out in Shipments of Grain FEE IS Will Not Exist in Alberta After First of Next Month (Special to thf Herald) Edmonton, June tb.-At Inst the sheriffs are to bo put on salary. The new regulations, it iius boon learned on the best aulliorify, will go into effect on July 1st. Tliis move on the part of the Vroviiu'i;il Government is n consonances of llnir avowed policy f law reform and opposition to the foe sy.stem. The toe sy-item has been iiialadorous to the public from the time and it is high time it was abolished. Abolisln-il it is root and brunch in the Province  of Alberta. The regulation will also extend to Clerks of the Court. Alberta is the nly province in tin- Domiiiion where the sheriffs aro on salary. The fee system has pormitl(^d ahuses wherever it has been in operation and has of ten allowed minor ofRcials to make salaries in exci'.ss of the principals and heads of tin- dip:irtmental service. The new inspector of legal offices found many overoli.irges by the sheriffs and minor law otncers, and it is largely by the report to the Attorney General that the action has been brouglit about sn soon. The fees will provide a fund largi! enough to pay the silaries of Ihe sheriffs and clerks aiid leave a surplus be.sido for the- generol expenses of tlio department. The change eoiiiiii(.' on the heels of the enlargement of the small debts or inanee and the appointment of fitly or more process issmrs throughout the province is calculated to materially educe the cost of litigation. The cost of subpoenaing witnesses will be much loss. Hitherto if a witness at Athabasca Landing was to bo called tho sheriff was permitted to charge mileage to that iioiiit and return, all of which was added lo the costs of tho case. Henceforth the subpoena will bo issued at Athabasca Landing and ser vice made by Uu- biiiUff ot a fraction of the former cost. Costs are iigaiii Imt a bagatelle of their former iiroporlions since under the now district courts act the action is tried at Atlia)�isejj Landing. At the lirst sill ing of this Court at Olds and Didsbuiy a great number of cases were disposed of .that formerly would have been heard at Calgary, where delay would have inevitably ensued, because of this great mass of litigation that would probably stand on the list and hold priority, and would in addition run up a long bill of expenses for the maintenance of witnesses. Now York, June 15,-The withdraw al from the service ot the freight ships of the White Star Lino and the com plaint of the company that the rail roads have so discriminated against New York thot the grain of the coun try is being sent abroad by way ot Montreal, will bo thorougjily gone into by the Now York Produce Exchange next Thursday when its trade and transportation committee will sub-mil a report on the subject which is expect to recommend the appointment of a committee to confer with tho railroads, "New York should bo tho natural shipping point for the grain of the country," said President Ring, of the Fxchangc, "and thorc seems, to be no other reason for tho grain being sent to Montreal than that tho railroads are giving a lower rate than they are giving New York; They are handling the grain and all the terminals aro in good shape to admit of its handling. Tho railroads have plenty of cars and engines." Mr, King said that everything that could be done, would be done by his association to bring back the business to this city. HAPPENINGS IN THE CITY At tho auction sale of tho property of Lawrence N, McEwen, hold at noon today, Klius Adams bought tho property for $3120.

CHIEF JUSTICE IS HONORED Sir Charles Fitzpatrick Chosen as a Member of the Hague Tribunal Ottawa, June H.-Sir. Chas. Fitzpatrick, eliief justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, has been notifted of his appointment lo succeed tho Into Major General Sir A. J. Ardagh. ns one of the four representatives ot Great Britain on the permanent board of arbitration at the Hague, to settle international disputes. Some time ago in ratifying the appointment of Sir Chns. Fitzpatrick, as-the joint roiiresentative nt Canada, Newfoundland and Great Britain, to the Hague tribunal, to adjudieiile on matter.s in dispute witli thci United States with reference to the Atlantic fisheries, the British government suggested that Sir Charles might also bo appointed as a permanent member of tho Hague board to fill tho vacancy caused by the death of Major General Ardagh, The suggestion was naturally gratifying to Canada as being significant recognition of Canada's partnership in the affairs of the empire as a whole, and tho appointment has now been made. In view of the fact that tho United States Senate adjourned last month without passing tho treaty providing for the submission of tho fisheries question to the Hague the matter cannot now be dealt with until next year unless a special session of tho United States Senate bo held.
