McKensle, Deputy Minister of BSducation, went to Calgary Monday on Pepartmontal business. It is surmised that a very large portion of his mission is to discover rhether the ire of the Calgary people over the university coming to Strathcona has cooled sufficiently to make it safe for Premier Rutherford to go through the southern oHy on his way to the educational conference in England next month.-S>trath-cona Plaindealer. Lloydnainstor has chosen the fol -lowing citizens as nwinhera of Its flrst council; Ifoyor H. B.Hall; councillors, Dr. H'HI, H. P. Lylo, N. C. Lyster, J. Whitebraad. Geo. Scott and R. Adams. The miners through Frraident Lancaster of tlte Femie union, tannedi  a tely arra�|rBd for a mass meeting to be held in'Stock's hall at 4 p.m., and posters announcing the fact were on the streets at 1 p.m. These posters also made the announocRleot that a closed meeting of the miners would bo held in the same hall at 7.80 p. m. At 1.30 Hon. Mr. Cushing had an audience with the district board and Vice-President V Lewis. Mr. W. L. Mackenzie "King had arrived, and was a busy man from the beginning. The mass meeting was certainly a mass. The hill was packed to the doors with miners, with a good ;sprinkling ot business nien and. a few ladies. President Lancaster of Gladstone union, was in the chair, and on tba platform were seated Hon. Mr. Cushing. Mr. W. L. Mackenzie King, deputy, minister of labor; Vice-President T. L. Lowis, of Bridgeport Ohio; President. F. H: Sherman, Sec retnry Biggs, Board Member John Sullivan, of ilichel, and W. W. Tut-tie, president of the Femie board of trade. The flrst speaker after the usual preliminary remarks by the chainnan and Mr. Tuttie and was Minister of Works Cushing of Alberta. Mr. Cushing makes no pretense at. oratory, but having been a work-ingnmn and having had a long and successful experience wuth working men, he was in the confidence of that large audi-lence of miner workers before he had l>ecn on his: feet ten minutes. He gave them a plain, ungamlshed tale of how it came about thait the eight-hour lav. which the ralnem had expected to have passed through the Alberta legislature laat winter failed to become law, and gave'them hhi unquallflcd assurance that an eight-hour bank to bank law would be put on the statute books of thai prov-incc next session. The straightforward sUtement coming from such a man as Mr. Cushing. carried with it the weight of conviction, and he was nwvt heartily applauded. We do not belic\'e we are saying too niuoh when we assert that this plain talk of Mr. Cushing did more towards paving the way to an acceptance of the conciliation investigation than did all the other efforts made in that direction, and to the honorable minister of public works for Alberta belongs great credit for the valuable asaistanoe which he has rendered at a most critical juncture. -Femie Ledger, A LOCAL BUDGET.
