Canadian affairs culminated at the end .September in a difficult and dangerous financial situation. Since then conditions arc slowly and this tem- porary 'check in .progress will prove the very greatest benefit to Canada. Expenditure is now on an extremely conservative' basis throughout thc whole country 'and we may hope that lasting lessons will have been taunht in the exercise of economy of capital and in the methods of raising it, es- pecially in the postponement of ex- penditure until the money to pay for it is actually in hand. "NTo MIC can say. how soon thc for- mer-vigor-will-be restored to the march of- Canadian, developments, but we .'.can' say.' with absolute certainty that wlttiin a very few years Canada again' be. lull of progress and prosperity. ;'th'e 'last four all .heard' many dis; -about the Can- adian Northern railway system and those responsible for 'It. These state- ments have been put into circulation by a few paltry unscrupulous enemies. The- affairs of the Canadian Northern 'have boon suhjnr.t to a thor- ough and-prolonged investigation by the government of -Canada with the most satisfactory results. Nothing further need non' be said, but I should-like to tell you that at no moment was'the'money invested in Canadian'Northern securities in dan- ger of .loss. The Canadian Northern is now certain of immediate comple- tion and it is to.be constructed in a manner that ensures as economical and rapid a movement of traflic as any railway on the American conti- nent ahfi its very great success can re regarded as absolutely certain." A shareholder who inspected alt the company's Canadian undertakings last' year, assured the meeting of his of Canadals fundamental soundness.

Dnrazzo, Albania, June strong force of Albanian Mussulman insurgents opened an attack on this city at an early hour this morning, maintaining for hours a sharp rifle fire supported by artillery. Amoag the first of the defenders of the Albanian capital to be killed was Colonel Thomas, the Dutch offi- cer selected by the powers to com- nand the gendarmerie in succession lo the Swedish officers who previous- ly had he'id the position. Hluejackets from the international fleet lying off the Albanian coast have been sent ashore to guard the [oreisn legations. The assault which started at five o'clock was carried out by three sen drate columns of insurgents. Today's attack by tlie insurgents came as a complete surprise tp the residents of the capital, where official statements had been published, declaring that the .Mussulman rebellion against the rule of Prince William had bcon utterly defeated by the government forces a few days ago. Tt was asserted that the remnant of the rebel forces was surrounded by .government troops at Shlak, between and Tirana. Accounts vary as to the strength of tho opposing forces in the field. It is generally estimated, however, that the government has nine thousand trained men who are said to.bc op- posed by about Insurgents.

And the reason Because .Mr. Gordon has visited the wells that have furnished the only ever brought from theVbow- cls of Mother Earth in this province. He has seen the actual crude oil, has used it iiufact, for tarring pipe lines it Pinchcr Creek. The oil, according lo Mr. Gordon, who was in the city for a few days, is very thick, and came from the old Lineham wells at Oil City.

The is an all-absorhins one w itii a milliter of Calgary bar- risters just nmv, to au- thentic information received in thu Herald from a Calgary visitor on Saturday. A party of Calgary legal men believe the British North America Act vests the mineral rights on homesteads taken up prior lo 1908 with the Homesteader instead o! with the Crown. The interpreta- tion which has generally been put on the Act is that the Crown re- served the mineral rights, alter 1S98. Hut. the Calgary gentlemen have had the ruling of eminent counsel on the matter, and will attack the ruling making 1008 the [late on which the act was chang- ed making the Crown the owner of the mineral rights. The Calgary lawyers have syndicated, and are offering homesteaders through the country a price for Ihcir rights, and will make a test case of it.

The court upheld the theatre and the city paid the costs and toot the defeat 'with a murmur. Several inquiries were received as to the city's intention regarding an appeal. Macleod, Calgary and Ed- monton city solicitors offered their assistance, but the civic government did not care to spend any more money. Finally the Provincial gov- ernment asked that the city appeal in order that the case might be thor- oughly tested. The commissioners acquiesced, provided that the govern- ment would bear half the costs. Since then, City Solicitor Ball has been advised that the government would stand the whole cost, win or lose.
