It is Just^nine miles south ol Macleod and Will- he the first station on the C; N. R, to'Pincher Creek. It is expected that the rails will run into the hew townsite this year, and big are the expectations.

On a-table 'was placed the line silver trophies, won hy the farmers, and it didn't require 8P^ech�s to extol the glories of Hazelmere distrlot.

Sam Hughes, received official ribtificattOn of his appointment as inspector , of penitentiaries at ?4,000 a'year. He will replace inspector G. W.

R, will run trains out ot Port Mann within the next few mouths. Plans on a huge scale have been made for the development of the town. Work shops arc to be cohstruoted and the manu tactur'e of locomotives and car.s pro vlded for. The prospect tor the future ot Port Mann seems assured. The de velopments now to b.e started 'will involve an,expenditure of about titteen million dollars. Premier McBride has made the following statement: "I can gafely say to this house that in the building ot th^ shops and works at Port Manjn, nothing will be left undone to have the best Installation ot tire kind that the science of engineering can pTofluce." He also said: There is In British Columbia ample supplies of timber that will enter into the construction of the freight cars of the railway, and I have good auth ority for saying that it is the intention of the company to build works at Port Mann, where a great deal oE the equipment ot the railway will he turned out." The great activity of the C, N. R. in the construction of the traus-contin-ental line shows that it must reach the coast within the ne.vt year, and it follows that much of the 'work which will be required at Port Mann in anticipation of its coming will have to be accomplished within the next tew months.

Mr. Asquith has pledged himself to do his best to give Ireland self-government, and besides' he is,-anxious that his name should he itientified with the accomplishment of' this measiire, as Mr. Gladstone's was with its advancement.
