PERSONAL REGISTRATION The basis of the Manitoba lists is personal registration.

He had quite an experience in returning from a trip to British Columbia, via Lethbridge, Shelby Junction and Havre by foot, handcar, work train and everything but swimming, and sometimes it looked like a good chance for that. He wrote the following graphic story of the floods and their work: ''The loss caused bv this flood cau never be computed. The grand total is appalling. Every section of the state has suffered.

While the flood was at its height drays and wagons were rushing frantically round conveying merchandise and personal effects to higher ground.

There was one serious washout on the ISforth- ern not more than 500 yards from the Havre depot. A large gang of men with a pile driver worked a day and to repair th6 uamags.

Cowley winning the toss, kicked off before a good many spectators. After the bail had been in play a few minutes a mix-up be- tween the Cowley backs let Pincher down the ball getting through. Af- ter that the game was very even Cow ley occasionally getting away. Half time arrived the game standing in favor ot" Pincher 1 goal to 0. The second half began by Rowley working their way up the slope towards the home goal. By a clever piece of work by Bob Baker and Clem Free- man the ball was almost through when four of the home players clear- ed in the melee. After that Pincher made the pace but failed 'to stay, Cowley taking advantage and fairly dancing around their opponents but failed to score on account of Pincher packing their goal. Just before time Pincher broke away, playing the ball behind. The referee allowed them to bring the ball in and score just on time. Everyone af the Cowley boys played a rattling good game.

PARTISAN REGISTRATION The executive of the Provincial Go- vernment appoints the registration clerks, and a necessary qualification for appointment is fidelity to the Conservative party. The registration clerks have made up the lists; and, wherever favor can be snown to the Conservative party it is shown. This goes so far as putting Conservatives on the lists, without exacting, as in the case of manifest Liberals, their personal attendance. The Provincial Government its .registration clerks to act parti- sanly. The law, as originally con- ceived and enacted, provided for an independent preparation of the voters lists.

It has been a try- ing time. Long hours, hard and often dangerous work, wet clothes and fre- quently no food or scanty meals has- tily devoured didn't seem to affect the railroad men.

"I read a very interesting: editorial in The Tribune a day or so ago, pay- ing deserved and handsome tribute to the loyal band of men in this city who helped save the city from the desroy- ing waters. Reading that, I -was re- minded of the deed of a Great North- ern train crew in Northern Montana a few days ago. A through train was stalled at a point near the little sta- tion of Essex in Flathead country. There was a washout and landslide and five miles of the track was im- passable. A train from the west stood on the other side of the gap. Some of the passengers bound for coast points and anxious to get to their destina- tion determined to walk over the mountains and catch the train on the other side. It was in a wild, rugged and heavily wooded region. There was a great mountain to chmb and the footing was dim and uncertain. One oi tiit; passengers from the east was an old lady, sick unto death, on her way to her home in Seattle. She had been advised by her physi- cians she had but a few days to live and she was hurrying home before death overtook her. When the men who intended to walk over the trail were preparing to leave the car the old lady piteously appealed to be tak- en along in some way. They assured her that was utterly impossible. Some of the train men heard of the case. They promptly rigged up a rude stretcher, went to the Pullman, ten- derly took the aged sufferer, raised her upon their stout shoulders and carried her over the mountain trail more than five miles, and sent her west On the other train.

Mr. Martin states that all except Mr. Haag's own horses were billed for Lethbridge at 6 o'clock on Monday morning. The unsettled state of the weather was responsible for the delay. "And" said Mr. Martin, "every horse sent would have raced. There would have been no camp-followers and hangers- on.

Mrs. Clark came to the city merely as an alter- nate delegate. Three hours after her arrival, however, the Utah delegates went into caucus. Then it was found that one of the regular delegates, C. E. Toose, of Provo City, would not come to the position, thereupon the vacant position was alloted to Mrs. Clark as a regular delegate.
