The lasted fourteen innings when Macleod made two runs winning the game by 20. For eight innings uot a man reached first base safely and for thir- innings no score was made. OPPOSITION GIVING UP TACTICS Winnipeg, Man., June la two weeks' trip of general inspection throughout the Calgary, Lethbridge and Macleod districts in Southern Al- berta, J. L. Doupe, assistant land commissioner of the C.P.R., returned to the city Wednesday, To a Free Press reporter who interviewed him at his office yesterday morning Mr, Doupe unhesitatingly mode the state- ment that never before in his western experience had he seen the wheat and other grains so far advanced as they are this season, nor giving such pro- mise for an immense yield at the coining harvest. While the heavy rains in. the district visited did some 'slight and tempor- ary the railway tracks, they also put the country in splendid condition from an agricultural stand- point, and not only has the winter wheat attained a height of from 24 to 30 inches, but the heads are' forming in many fields. The spring wheat is from 12 to 15 inches high, and in all three of the western, provinces the crop is from.three to five weeks of last year. Mr. Doupe states that while work the new line from Lethbridge to Mac- leod was delayed somewhat oy the re- cent rahiS; the contractors, Messis. .1 ansen McDonald have now a of sub-contractors with larg; gangs of men distributed over practically the entire route and the construction work is being pushed to. completion.

McMillan, whom he admits he shot he was walking with a woman, has resulted in disagree- ment. The jury was out all night Fri day and reported disagreement Sat- urday morning. Judge Fitzgerald sent them back telling them the evi- dence showed the prisoner was not in- sane when he killed as he pleaded in defence and applied to them to agree on a verdict in accordance with the evidence. They returned a second time and reported a disagreement and were discharged. The jury stood 7 to 5 for acquittal. The new trial be- gins today. v. A GOOD GAME I SCORE ATIE Football Match tween Macleod and Lethbridge pan jo oui[ afibut midway between its terminal points. The new: town. .has', been named and is superbly situated ab'out one-half mile from the bank of trie Old Man in the centre of a rich agricultural district. _ The Canadian Pacific railway has recently sold wild land in the neigh- borhood as high as per 'acre, .al- though the site for the .new town is at present some 'fifteen miles from a railroad.

GOT OUT OF JAIL EED CAUGOT BrNglrt to ike P Gtj r Escaped 2 Years There was a big surprise party han- ded out to the Lethbridge .Hungers on. Saturday .evening when the Mac- leod Y-. M. C. football team very near ly defeated theni on their, own stamp- ing ground. As it was" the game end. ed in a tie and the locals-.will have another' chance to get "into the. semi- finals for the Dennett shield, the em- blem of the provincial championship. The Macleod boys came' in on the 'Calgary local which was delayed over two hours and ju'ent right onto the Geld without having any supper and although they tired toward the end of the play, were game to the finish. There was an immense crowd see the Rangers put it over the Mac- i leod boys again but it did not take long to see that the locals were not playing their usual game" and that'ja victory was doubtful. The visitors .took the aggressive and maintained it the .greater part of the time. After each goalkeeper had made several good saves, the Macleod forwards ound the net after an extended piece f bombardment following a corner ick. The Lethbridge team gingered p somewhat now but could not get heir working. In the ormer part the second half thavi- itors still had somewhat the better f the game but toward the end be? an to tire.. Finally Vithin five min- tes of time, .Holberton shot one ast XHitty after as pretty a piece of vork as was seen in the game. Lcth- ridge tried hard to score again but Xfarr, Mounted Horse and Nutty were too for them, the game i -f The Macleod boys had the best of the gamp, not because they were fast- r or played a good combination, but because they wore sure kickg and al- ways played their positions. Marr .Ottawa, June Government will nuke a strong endeavor this week to materially advance the remaining business of Parliament for this ses- sion and it is hoped that the obstruc- tion tactics of the Opposition, which have been undergoing a gradual modi- fication during the "past few days, will be somewhat less in evidence dur- ing the ba'iance of the session. Sir Wilfrid Laurier aud K L. Borden will early in the week seek to reach some agreement looking to the facilitating of the passing of the rest oi the ses- sional agenda. Tcxky will be devot- ed principally to supply in public works estimates and on Tuesday it is probable the civil service bill will be introduced by the Hon. Sydney Fish- er. An effort will be made this week .to advance some of the Government bills now on the order paper, the less con-, tentious measures being taken up' first and passed on to the Seriate, the upper chamber being now prac- tically without grist for its mill. With regard to the election bill, there seems to'be at present little change in the situation. The Manitoba Govern- ment has so far done little to-remedy the grievances complained of by the Liberal members of that province with respect to the preparation and revision of new lists. The request for an amendment to the regulations governing the holding of the courts of revision with a view to having the courts sit for longer times than at' present provided for and to move from place tt> place in each county as'circumstances 'require has not been '.met. The provincial gov- ernment explains that the statute fixes the completion of for 1 and allows only one place in each county for the sitting of revision courts. Mr Borden is himself desirous of meeting some .of. the.valid objec- tions 'of 'the' Government to the pres- ent conditions in Manitoba and it is probable that the two leaders as a result of the negotiations now going on, may be able to reach some com- promise satisfactory to both parties.

"New York should be the natural shipping point for the grain of the said President Ring, of the Exchange, "and there seems, to be no other reason for the grain being sent to Montreal than that the railroads are giving a lower rate than they are giving New York; They are handling the grain and all the terminals are .in good shape, to admit of its handling. The railroads have plenty of cars and engines."

CALL TO SARNIA PASTOR Regina, June a meeting of the oflioiul board of the Metropolitan Methodist church last evening, it was decided to extend a call to the Rev. Joseph Oliver, of .Sarnia, to succeed Rev. C. W. Brown in the pastorate at the conclusion of the present church year in June of 1909. PROHIBITION IN FIVE YEARS Will Not Enst in Alberta After first Neil (Special to .the Herald) Edmonton, June the Jean Baptiste Fauchenouve, alias Jack Miller, is bc.hir.dl the bars again, Detective Egan haying brought him to the barracks on Saturday morning from Spokane, Wash., where he was brought by Deputy Sheriff, F.

In October, 1905, he wa sentenced by Judge Harvey at "Mac leod to ten years for horse rustling but, possibly profiting by his know ledge of the jail he broke from Ston Mountain on the 2nd ,of December 1905, and escaped into Montana, an has since been at large.

The new regulations, it has been learned on the best authority, will go into ef- fect on July 1st. This" move on the part of the Provincial Government is in consonance of their avowed policy of law reform and opposition to the fee system. The fee system has been maladorous to the public from the HAPPENINGS IN THE CITY At the auction sale of the property of Lawrence N.

Abolished it is root and branch in the of Alberta. The regulation will also: extend to Clerks of the Court. .Alberta is the only province in the Dominion where the sheriffs arc on salary. The feei system has permitted.abuses wherever it has been in operation and has of ten allowed minor officials to make salaries in excess of the principals and heads of the departmental service. The new inspector of legal -offices found many overcharges by the sher- iffs and minor law officers, and it is by the report- to the Attorney General that the action has .been about so fees will a fund largo enough to pay the-salaries of the sheriffs and clerks and leave' a neat surplus beside for the- general expenses of the depart- ment. The change coming on the heels of the enlargement of the small debts or dinance and the appointment of fifty or more process issuers throughout the province is calculated to materially reduce the cost of litigation. The cost of subpoenaing witnesses will be much less. Hitherto if a witness at Atha- basca Landing was to be called the sheriff was permitted to charge mile- age to that point and return, nil o which was added to the costs of the case. Henceforth the subpoena will be issued at Athabasca Landing and ser vice made by tho bailiff at a fraction of the former cost.

CHIEF JUSTICE IS HONORED Sir Charles Frtzpatrick Chos- en as a Member of (he Hague Tribunal Ottawa, June Chas. Fitz- patrick, chief justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, has been notified of his appointment to succeed the late Major General Sir A. J. Ardagh, as one of the four representatives of Great Britain on the .permanent board of arbitration at the Hague, to settle international disputes. Some time ago in ratifying the appointment of Sir Chas. as-the joint representative of Canada. Newfound- land and Groat Britain, to the Hague tribunal, to adjudicate on matters in dispute with tho United Slates with reference to the Atlantic fisheries, the British government suggested that Sir Charles might also be appointed as a permanent member of the Hague board to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Major General Ardagh. The suggestion was naturally grati- fying to Canada as being significant Speaking1 of: the results of their la- bor ,in Fortune said they were grateful'for the ten o'clock clos ing- which means a saving of a mill- ion to a million and a half dollars the legitimate business oi the pro- vince. The government and the Legis- lative Assembly were very sympathet- ic toward the temperance movement. The league will next usk for a straight majority in local option vote, and then for the abolition of the treating system, which the speak- er sarcastically described as insane. Drinkers themselves were opposed to it but followed the custom. The go- vernment is going to place a text- book on scientific temperance and hy- giene in the schools. Tn five years, prohibition would obtain in Alberta. The hotel men themselves predicted it. Their own actions in breaking the law will bring about their own downfall.

The reduction is ten cents on the present base rate of eighty-five cents. The city too has at last enacted and enforced a building by-law minimizing to a great extent the conflagration hazard. Government R. B. Bennett, K. C., of Calgary and Mr. Dennis, of the. C. P. R. Irriga- tion branch were in the city and call- ed upon the members of the Govern- ment who were in. Addressing Meeting Hon. C. W. Cross .-will spend some time next week with .the member for Leduc and will address three meetings in the riding. It is expected that Pre- mier Rutherford will shortly address a number of meetings in the Leduc and Strathcona ridings. Since sion has closed Mr. Rutherford has addressed, several meetings in various parts of the province, and by his straightforward and businesslike 'de- scription of what his government has accomplished during the last three years, has received a hearty recep- tion from all classes. Saskatchewan Cuts Up The Saskatchewan river which rose seventeen feet above low water mark this week clue to heavy rains and warm weather melting the snows in tht! 'mountain's, looked like a series of all week. It is es- timated that logs, belonging to Edmo'non mil hive n were" swept away. Local Option Considerable interest has been rife in the Capital since it was known that the Saskatchewan Legislature would introduciy-ameiKlments 'to_ the Liquor Ordinance. Ten o'clock clos- ing and the limitation of local option to municipalities are features that are popular here. As soon as a municipal act is passed in Alberta next year, no doubt similar legislation with regard to local option will be enacted. Hotelmen .Organizing It is rumored, nnd there are many signs of truth of the rumor, that the hotelmen arc working hard to perfect an organization that is to be used in the next provincial election against Hon.- C. W. Cross and the members of the Legislature for their action in passing the ten o'clock closing amend- ment. Credence is given to story from the fact that the solicitor of the- Licensed Victuallers' association, Mr. H. A. Mackie, has been abroad in the province to inspire the conception _ of such a scheme and has been prom- ised a considerable fund, of money to effect the success of the- plan. Recent- ly Mr. Mackie obtained considerable notoriety in an address before the Conservative association of Edmonton, by stating that the West did not re- quire railway competition. Evidently this lawyer has a fine taste for mon- opolies. RACE MEET HAD TO BE CALLED OFF Men's Own meeting urging of expenses for thf> maintenance ofi! recognition of Canada's partnership witnesses.
