An immense blackfish or fmback whale thirty feet long located itsel under a pile driver at a fish trap lo cation near the entrance to Deceptio Pass a few days ago. The pile was pushed clear through the huge body Cardston, June reports concerning the floods bring no news of anything more serious than at first given out. In fact in some eases the damage is not so great us at first feared. Settlors have had losses only whore they were located on the river bottom lands. Mr. A.

The bill is considerably modified from the inea sure as introduced lost year. Cue of the chief modifications is the limitation of the area within which it will apply. may only be the bill, such townships us may be designated for that purpose by order of the govcrnor-in-coimcil within the following tract: Townships one to forty-four inclusive, bounded on the west by west line of range twenty-one west of the fourth principal jneriditm and on the east by the line of tne Minneapolis, St. Taul and Sault Ste Marie Railway from the point where that railway crosses the boundary to its junction with the main line of the of the fish aud was pounded into the tide lands underneath by the heavy driver hammer. The struggles of the fish shook the pile driver so violently that the loft- man fell from the second station o? the driver rigging to the deck, and was rescued from drowning only by the prompt action of John Nolson, working on the deck.

Looking at the map it will be see that this area comprises roughly th_ land lying west of the Soo line an the South Saskatchewan river, as far north as township 4.4, and as far west as range 21, west of the fourth meridian. Township 44 runs a little north of Battleford, touching the Gal gary and Edmonton railway between Ponoka and Wetaskiwin, and range 21 west is in the longitude of Lcth- bridge, The new proposed regula- tions as to pre-emption, briefly sum- marized, are as follows: A. person who is now holding a homestead within this area or who hereafter obtains entry for a hoine- Btead, may pre-empt any available quarter section lying alongside his homestead, or separated therefrom by only a road allowance. To secure a title for his homestead and his pre- emption it will be necessary for LMm to complete the requirements requi- site for him to receive letters patent for his homestead; tjo reside either on his homestead or on his pre-emption for six months in each of six succes- sive years; to cultivate, in addition to his homestead requirements, fifty Albion Ridge, June rcccn leavy rains which fell in the countrj auscd farmers to rejoice over the out ook for a good crop.

The price shall be per acre; one third will DC payable oa expiration ol thrco years, and the balance in five equal annual install- ments, with interest at the rate of 5 per cent. There is one other limitation of the area to which these provisions apply. In any township in which eight or more sections have been accepted by any railway company as part of its land grant, it will not be for homesteaders to avail themselves of the pre-emption privilege. This is an important qualification and should borne in mind. Another important feature of the bill is that providing for the pur- chasing of o. second homestead. Any person who has' a homestead any- where in Western Canada, and has se- cured his patent or has completed the requirements necessary to secure bis patent can purchase 1GO acres at the rate of per acre, in three annual installments. The purchaser must re-1 side upon the quarter section for six months in each year, must cxtltivate fifty acres, and must build a house worth at least If the purchas- ed homestead is within nine miles of the original homestead, residence up- .on cither homestead may be accepted as residence on the quarter section. Purchased homesteads may only be acquired within such townships in- cluded in the area set forth in the bill, as are specially designated for that purpose by order of the govern- ment. There is also the same provision with respect to pre-emption. The go- vernment is thus empowered to select the townships -within, this area, in which it 'will be possible to secure pre-emptions and second homesteads. The bill has been introduced in the House of Commons, but has not come up .for its second reading. roads here, was given an absolute denial today by D.
