So fKT your correspondent has not heard afiy names mention.ed, and is not in a position to say who the candidate will Itkflly be. The ConservatlveB held their convention some months ago, and re-nominated .John Kemmls, the sitting member. ,   Col. A. C. liemmls returned from a trip to'Ottawa today. The' oolOnel waj attending th^ military, conference at the capital. Mr. and Mr6. A. N. Alouat, who have been travelling In Europe for the past f�w months, returned home this morning. They report having had a splendid holiday In the old land, but had rather a i-ough voyage oil' the return trip. Miss Husband, 'who has been in Edmonton visiting friehda for the past few weeks, returned home the other day. The ladies of St. John's (Anglican) Church Inet at the home of Mrs. t. White oDg day last week, and presented her with a travelling bag or companion ,as an indication of the este'em In which Mrs. White is held by the ladies of St. .John's. Mr. and Mrs. White leave for their new horae al the coast in the noar future. The inoeting of the directors of the Pincher Creek Agricultural Society held in tilt Board of Trade rooms, Scott, Block, on Monday afternooh, proved to 1)^ one of the best, If not the best, meeting yet held in the history of the sooioty. Nearly all the directors were preseni, and ev�ry one of them took an active part in the dis^ cusslons, which arose during the afternoon. In addition to the appointment of the various committees to deal with the different branches of the work in connection with the 191.3 exhibition, the directors also decided that no stallion show should be held this year, for various reasons, given, and the seed, gi-ain and poultry, shows, will not be held until late in the fall of the year. A strong committee was also appointed to solicit and arrange as many special prizes _ as possible, and considerable attention ''will be paid to tMa branch of the work this year. Whil^ this matter was being^ discussed, Col. A. C. Kemmis Informed the meeting that he had secured a Special'iprise of $50.00 for the be�t cavalry remount. This announcement Was greatly appreciated, and was promptly followed'by -other promises of smaller sums. ' The queistion of raising revenue, foj; the Agricultural Society' beoam'e ^ome'-what exciting in spots, however; and finally ended by'the introduction qt' some rather drastic, but wHhalgdod' resolutions. The suggestion.' was-made that a campaign should be In-'^ augurated to sell as many anerobefV' tieltots -as possible at aidollar eadh,! and thus augment the funds, of -the]^ society. � R. L. Norman,'though not a director' and present only in the oapacltly. of; press reporter, asked, several, riues-, ttons, the answers, to whioh,;.fihowBd* that the gate receipts at theifair'last, year only amounted'to $15:00, and tl)at the total enrance fees amolinted;: to; $85, or the.rcaibouts; also that amemj^^ ber's ticket'was.of absolutely, no value to the holder. He then suggestedi thai' a member's ticket should entitle fthe,-holder and all his family to admission to the grounds on fair day, and alsa that a holder of one of these tlokats be permitted to exhibit any number or auantlty or articles without any en.-' trance fee, claiming that Jn tlils wayj; the public would be offered' some itt'; duoeraent to become' members 'of the, society; -whereas, at present if;a man. bought a jflember's ticket he was actually giving the dollar away, for. he, got absolutely nothing in return. This idea was vigo-rouBly opposed by Secretary Harwood, but Col. A. C. Kemmls supported it, and many other directors gradually saw advantages in the suggestion. This discussion lasted for considerably over an hour, and ended by the adoption of all the suggestions made by M'r. Norman. ' . ,: This was the first meetln|r, presided' ofeby the now president, H. H. Jen-, kins, an^ it that .gentleman .is .able to Iteep ui). the enthusiasm up .to, its present state, then the ultimate; sue-1 ctBS of the Pincher Ci-eek fall fair is': assured. The Pincher Creek agricultural fair at one time, was as good ,asi any in Western,Canada,:hut of reoeu'ti years thc interest seems to" have wan  6d.  , : A TwcHeaded Calf Pincher Creek, March "S.-^A tyi^o-;: lieaded calf brought into t6wh today by Wm. Bitnt, from the Afehvaie dis-trict, has arouSfed.considerable Int'^rr/ est here. This calf had fwo,distinct heads, but in ail other respects afi:,: peared to bo nult^ nbrmal. 'It had. only two"ears, biit was.eqdIppAd-WltUi fbiir eyes, and 'from the eyes to the tips of the noses the heads are perfectly fofmed. The ineetlrig of the rural taxpayers in the Pincher Creek school district took place this afternoon, according to apnounoement. Ther^ was a fair representation present of farmers whose lands are affecfed, and after discussing., the matter at length, and from all angles. It was finally decided to, send a, deputation to the Town Council on Monday evening next to ask that the 1013 assessment be placed Oh such a basis as will relieve the rural taxpayers of the heavy burden they are at present bearing in this inspect. In conversation with your cor-['respondeht, one of the farmers, who was present, expressed the opinion that most of the farmers affected would be satisfied to pay somewhere in the  neigliborhood of $25.00 per quarter section in school ta.xes. Last year they paid $40.00 per quarter section, The.whole trouble In this connection seems to have arisen from the fact that the new Towns Act was put into, .force without any warning, and in making their assessment under the provisions of this act the Town Council were at a very considerable disadvantage. Thei town assessment was almost eut In half, and as a certian sum of money had to lie raised for scliobl purposes, there seemed to be nothing for it but to raise the assess-metit of the farm lands within the school district. At first many of the far'iiaers talked of trying to havg their iand% taken out of the Pincher Creek School District, and added to the school district adjoining, but recently that Idea seems to have been dropped and the complainants are devoting their energies to securing a re duction iijL assessment.

Poincare to the French presidency, says : ".It is admitted by all acquainted with tlie currents of diplomacy in Europe tliat the coming of Poincare put more electricity into llie Franco-Ger.man situation than has been there in many years. The appointment of Delcasse' as an avowed partisan of the policy of 'revenge' as ambassador to St. Petersburg constituted nothing less tlian a di'^*"^!' '^'^'^"'^"Ks to mshy, tlie-answer, to which, it is note\yorthy, has not yet lieen given and which, when it comes, may stagger the world with its suddenness. "Either," said the diplomat who holds a secretarial rank in the service, "Oermau judges that in view of the momentoiiS policy torcshadow-ed by Delcasse's appointment, discrc-l>ioh is at this momient her wisest policy or siternatcly, Germany may simply be observing a highly political silence, 'ivhile finally giving a careful look to her oitensive and defensive equipment. That Germanj^ which in 1006, insisted on the dismissal of Delcasse as a result of the Moroccan embroglio, givjng France an alternative in war, shoUia now quietly eat humble pie in the face of this virtual deft from tiie new head of the French republic, is at the present moment a. matter of undisgtiised, arnazement to all tlie chancellories of tlie world. "Even by itself it would have.been sufficient to arouse the ever-slumbering B^ranco-phobia of the Germans, but coming as it ei^id, on the an-noiinccnient that something like $B00,-000,00(1 was to be spent in strengthening tlie French land forces, the pol->icy of Poincare is susceptible of only one explanation-namely, that whereas .a certain measure of prudent passivity characterized the recent French government, the present liead of  the republic means at least to try and re-conquer tor France some of het lost prestige in the concern of the powers, as well as to break the political paramountacy of Berlin in Europe, . objects whose accompiishmeilt musii involve a resort to arms. '.'The situation," he continued, ''remains at present principally dependent on Germany's action. '.'Will the Berlin war party let pass forever their, undoubted cliance to force the French into war ?, It Germany postpones the occasion till later, it will be only to find a French army far better prepared to meet her than she is now. . . > �'Germany, if she acts soon, will-also be certainly able to count, on half of Austria and Italy as againb^ any move by the Russians toward protecting their slo^ brethren in tlie Balkan,! fi certainty which becomes continually , wealter as tl;e'old Kaiser of .Austria becomes older and thovio-toi^ious Balkans continue to look on the: horizon more practicable possibility. �.:�,��� � "''Indeed," continued tile diplomat, "never within the past ten years not even during the Dreyfus and Moroc-: can-.Cirisis has a Franco-German war been nearer in sight. Ge'lrmany; builds confidently, on twp � reasons-namely, first; that Englami's policy with re^ gard'to the French amounts merely to a determination to use the Frencji; arhiy, and ^ navy should events 'ever force tiiat' nccessityi-; secondi that' Engiandiij determined to'be no party to any triple alliance which would involve her, should one of the vconstitu-ent parties other than herself be at-tacked.' '.'Ih'other' words, Germany teelS that 'Enelahd's regard, for France � is essentially selfish and that any upheaval involving France as a priaci-p� will find Albion as perfidious as ever."^ ^ E A ST:' E R BRAND You men w>h6 lcr ted with up-to-date; equlpmiant.:'^ Customers receive the , best 9f' aiitentlon.
