Changes River Course Near Cards ton - Carried Away Field of Oats Copies of tho new measure intro-duccd in the Uousu of Comnionsjjy Hon. Frank Oliver, amending the Lnuds Act arc now to hand. The Ijil' is considci'ubly modified from the mea sure os iutrodueed last year. One of tho chief modifications is tho limitation of tho area within whicli it will apply. "I'rc-uuiption may only bo acquired," sayi' tho bill, "within such townships as may be desiguateU for that purpose by order of the govcrnor-in-couucil within tlie following tract; Townships one to forty-four inclusive, bounded on the west by vrest line of range twenty-one west of the fourth principal ^lerldian and on the east by the line of liio Minneapolis, St. Paul and Sault Ste iSIariu Itailway from the point where that railway crosses tho bouuUarj- to its junction with the main liuo of the Uunadiun I'acilic Uailway, thence wos turly following tho main lino of the Canadian Tacific Knilway until it crosses the third principal meridian, thenco following tho principal meri-ilian to tho north line of township twenty-four to the South Saskatchewan river, thence down stream along tho said Saskatchewan river, to the north lino of township Ihirty-nuio, to the North Saskatchewan river, thonce up stream along the said North Saskatchewan river to the north line of township forty-four. Looking at the map it will be seen that this area comprises roughly tlu; land lying west of the Soo line and tho South Saskatchewan river, as for north us township -ii, and as far west as range '21, west of the fourth meridian. Township 44 runs a little north of Dattleford, touching the C'al gary and Kdmonlon railway between i'onoka and Metaskiwin, and range 21 west is in the longitude of I>;th-brldge. The now proposed regulations as to pre-emption, brielly suin-niarized, are as follows; A persan who Is now lioiding a homestead within this area or who liercaftcr obtains entry for a honie-Btcad, may pre-empt any available quarter section lying alongside his homestead, or separated therefrom l)y only a road allowance. To secure a title for his homestead and his preemption it will be necessary for Uim to complete the reciuirements requisite for him to receive letters patent for his homestead; to^ reside either on liis homestead or on liis i)ru-emption for six months in each of six successive years; to cultivate, in addition to his homestead reiiuireaicuts, fifty ncres, cither on his homestead or on the pre-emption on tho terins set forth. The price shall bo S3 per acre; one third wilt be payable ob the expiration ol three years, and the balance in five equal annual installments, with interest at tho rate of 5 per cent. There is one other limitation of tho area to which these provisions apply. In any township in which eight or more sections have been accepted by any railway company ns part of its land grant, it will not be op�n fo. liomcsteaders to avail themselves of the pre-emption privilege. This is an important qualification and should be borno in mind. Another important feature of tho jjill is that providing for the purchasing of a second homcstoad. yVny person who has' a liomcstead anywhere in Westuni Canada, and hos secured Ilia patent or has completed tho ' requirements necessary to secure his patent can purchase IGO acres at the rate of $3 per acre, in thrco annual installmcntB. Tho purchaser must ro-side ujion the quarter section for six months in each year, must cultivate fifty acres, and must build a iiousu worth at least ?300. Jf the purchased homestead Is within nine miles of tho original homestead, residence up-.on either homestead may ho accepted os rosidenco on the quarter section. Purcliased homesteads )niiy only be acquired within sucli townships included In tho area set forth in tho WH as are specially deslgiiateil for . tliat purpose by order of tho government. There is also tho same provision with respect to pre-emption. Tho go-vornment is thiis cinpoworod to select tho townships within this area, in which It'will be posslblo to secure pre-emptions and Bccond homostoads. Tho bill lins been Introduced in tho House of Commons, but has not come up.for its Bocond reading. WIIAV;: TMl'ALKD BY PILE (.Vnurortes correspondence Seattle rost-lntclligencer.) An iuuuoiiso blackflsh or flnbacit whale thirty fet>t long located itselt under a pile driver nt a fish trap location near the eiitrnnco to Deception Pass n few days ago. The pile was pushed clear through tho huge body of tho fish and was pounded into tlie tide lands underneath by the heavy driver hammer. Tlic strugglo-s of the fi.sh shook tho pile driver so violently that tho loft-man fell from the .second station of the driver rigging to the deck, and was re.scued from drowning only by the prompt action of .lohn Nolson, working on the deck. ui ALBION RIDGE Albion Kidpo, June 14.-The recent lionvy r.iiii.* wliich fell in tlio country caused farmers to rejoice over tlie outlook for n frond crop.

OP I OPENERS yesterday will kindly return them today as they are of exceptional value B. suet ^^Mmmm Cardstoii, June 11.-Pnrtlier reports concerning the Hoods bring no news 1 anything more serious than at first given out. In faot in sonic cases tlio aninge is not .so great ns at first feared, Setllers havo hud losses only where they were located on the river bottom lands, Mr, A. Architthld made nn insi)ec-tion west recently to look into the condition of the roads and bridgs. In nearly every ca.',� were intact but the earthwork npiiroaches are badly cut and will require refills most cases. On Belly Rivor Tliere have been some losses by rnnciior.s along the river. Mr. Elias ChTiatiaiisen, near Caldwell, suffered ratlior severely ns his hogs niuTpoul try were located in buildings within reach of the waters. Quite a number of animals were rowned and his direct loss will rench from $300 to $400 to say nothing in regard to tho depreciation of all lands located in the river valley. \t the old Cochrane Horse Rnncli the river lias cut a new clionnol, overflowing nil the meadow lands and covering them with sand and gravel. About 110 ocres ol spring plowed land sown to onts have been wuslied out- the soil turned over in the plowing being completely curried awny. iV good sized stream flows a few rods south of the Bungalow, rendering this beautiful stone residence unsafe for permanent dwelling purposes. Tlie water did not damage tlie interior save (or filling up the cellar, thus necessitating the overhauling of the heating plant. At the old ranch house under the lill the outbuildings have all been partially submerged-the fences are all swept away-the new barn accom modating the dairy herd of some 50 cows has been temporarily abandoned and the butter phint put out of busi noss. All imiirovemonts will have to bi moved from the lower hinds in or der to be absolutely secure. The present owner, Mr. K.J. Wood is thus a heavy loset. However, his usual optimism pre vails and he makes no complaints. There arc quite a nuniber of locators plowing or breaking land ou the Cochrane tract and the rains have only aided in this work, the usually tough sod turning much more readily now. The corner of Mr. J. W. earl's brick house wliieh was taken out by the flood will be fully repaired by tomorrow. The damage was not so great as many seemed to think. He will again occupy the liouse Mr. Harris was tlv nia.son in charge. The telei)hniic service is being put in shape, on the South of Lee's Cree and residents can say "Hello" very soon now. Mr. Galloon has a number of teams at work getting up the lumber taken down stream. Some of it is said have reached the "Old Moffat Ranch, down St. Mary's. The twon council held an adjourned meeting on Wednesday eve for th purpose of considering tho offer on the debentures sent recently. As th telegrams in reply had not been for warded from Cardston, there could b(i no action taken. Personals _ Mr. S, M. Dudley was up from Spring Coulee the oth(u- day. Floods have had no effect save to delay sum mer fallowing. Mr. J. M. Billingslcy, ol Caldwell came in on Wednesday also. He ports the old Oxley ranch between the Waterton and Belly rivers ns com plctely wrecked as to fencing and im provonients. Mr; B. lost only 100 log through high water. Mr. H, L. Thompson from Kimball was in yesterday and states the great est damage is to the bridge, one spun gone, as reported, and the work the intake of the canal. All the rock work and guides put in at the head gates havo been sAvept awny. Settle are doing well. frank McDonald who meets Graco, tho Greek in wrestling match at Oliver's Hall to hiorrow night. Tlie Greojc belongs to Calgary and has a wide reputation as a wrestler. Ho is also well know throughout the States. McDonald has wrestled in L'ethbridgo and needs no introduction.
