SNOW STORM IN EDMONTON Old Timers Tell of Previous Storm- Effect on Crops SWARMING OVER FROM THIS SiD-H Congress Told of the Rush Canadian Lumberjacks Are Making to Reach U. S. Washington. D. C., April sideration of the tariff bill was re- sumed by the senate today. Mr. Nel- son took the floor to present bis ob- jections to numerous "joktrs" in ttie lumber schedules. While ostensibly -the rates of duty on lumber were lowered, he said they in fact were higher even, than the Dingley rates. He quoted statistics to show that in seven classes of lumber, the increases Edmoiiton, April real good snow storm has to come about this time every said H. W. Mc- Kenney, M.P.P., for Pembina, when asked this morning as to his opin- ion of the weather. "This snow storm will settle the he stated to a Bulletin repre- sentative. "With a change of moon and the usual storm over we are entitled to look for fine weather and I think wo will get it." "In the old days farmers used ttv welcome a snow storm such as this. The unfortunate part of it, however, is that there is no spi'injr. seeding done. The storm used to come later than this when most- of the spring wheat was in the ground. With the warm, bright weather after the storm the grain sprouted very fast and splendid crops were the result. The storni at' this certainly puts spring very late, but it is not too late yet. "Old Bill Cust used to say that spring wheat sown before May 24th 1. T 2. The PtriN 3. Day ii Ike Amy 4.

My experience is that whenever the seeding season is accompanied by a heavy snow stonn, excellent crops are the result." Mr. McKeuny, who is one of the oldest of the old timers, of St. Al- bert, recalled the thirty years or so since he quartered in Albena. and said that a big- snow storni in April is a common thing in the old days It usually came before April 15. but in prices from 1900 to 1907 were more than 57 per cent, while the in- crease of wages was only from 15. to 20 per cent.

C., April finance committee substitute for the Payne tariff and minimum provision was reported to the senate today by Senator Aid- rich, chairman of the comitittee. It puts in effect after MarcbSj-l a maximum provision for an addi- tional 25 per cent, a-d valorem on all of the rates of the senate bill, and then gives to the president the pow- er to apply the minimum rates to any country or section ol country by proclamation. It provides for a duty of five cents on coffee and ten cents on tea ini- "Thft heaviest, fall of the beautiful, that I ever said Mr. McKen- j ney, "was on the fifth of June, in J the year 1S65. All traffic was stop- j ped .for a week between Winnipeg! and St. Paul, where immigrants were making their-way into Mani-l toba in the old Red River carts." j Mr. McKenny thought that a snow! storm at this stage ten years' ago, would have been a calamity in the, Edmonton district. Then the farmers j did not- practice mixed forming as: I they do now and a failure of the! wheat- crop meant that they were' practically ruined. Now with their] horses, cattle, hogs and poultry, j in one branch of farming they maKe- .lip in another. He did not think, however, it would be wise to sow a large acreage of spring wheat this year. "The country will be all right, snow storm, or no snow said Mr. McKenney in concluding the in- terview. ve Of i ..nled Hi I'M uir. "Tha..- coutmueu Mr. Ileuwyck. with cool deliberation, nodding vigor- "Yes." smiled Richard, the humor of the situation appealing to him in spite of its possibilities. "I've heard him called" ttiftt, too. a poker game." The adventurer was sinking every moment deeper into the mire. He did not think the present instant was auspicious for declaring himself a riper, yet telJ his name he must soon, for even DOW they had passed the iron gateway of the Renwycks' country home and were whirling up a -winding- avenue .lined with trees. What the re- sult of this declaration would be he could but too well imagine. His heart sank; his hopes vanished. Suddenly into his brain there flashed a brilliant less than an Inspiration. To avoid trouble the Earl of Croyland had coolly appropriated the name of Richard Williams. A, fair exchange was no robbery by the laws of love and war, and if Richard bor- rowed the Englishman's title for the time being an imminent calamity might be averted. At all events, he would meet the girl he loved, which was the chief object in view, and, be- tides, the proposition appealed to his sense of humor. His spirits rose at once. me, Mr. he observed, with a faint suggestion of what he thought was the English' man's drawling "what Jolly fine grounds you have! What d'ye "Restmore." "Ha, ha! Very good.

How could he have ever let it go? "Lord said Mr. Renwyck, Indifferently enough, as if adorable girls like that were as plenty as black- berries, "allow me to present you to my daughter." The adorable girl smiled and extend- ed a hand, which Richard took, striv- ing to prevent his own from trembling. "Miss he murmured, look- Ing squarely Into her eyes, "you con- vince me that America Is the very finest country In the world." T CHAPTER V. O dive is one thing, to swim about is another, and to get safely out is still a third. Hay- ing taken the plunge, Richard Williams was now at leisure to con- template the deeps in which he found himself. Here he was In a strange house under a borrowed name and ti- tle, with little knowledge or experi- ence to enable him to carry off the im- position successfully. True, from his associations with the earl in Texas he could recall some of the Englishman's oddities of speech and manner, to which his own soft southern accent readily accommodated Itself, bet this was a flimsy scaffolding -by which to build a successful fraud. Though well educated, Richard's environment had afforded him small opportunity to be- come familiar with the manners of po- lite society, and his knowledge of Eng- land and English customs, like that of many better informed Americans, was meager. On the other hand, he had plenty of common sense, much of his father's native shrewdness, a fund ol ready wit, a cool courage in an emer- gehcy-and in general nerve enough to brazen out the affair until sncb a time as he might see fit to make a clean breast pf it and trusi- the rest jo.
