A> last,experiment is to'>be- made, however;-.on the present site by1 sinking, casing'; a 'little distance, away from the hole, and sliarting a -!'hew one.

The-case was tried before Inspector Belcher and Magistrate Martin. .The-accused,;:w1)o was in the employ-of- T. Libel & Co., was charged wjth the theft of two hundred sacks of grain from the. firm, the grain... being shipped to Brocket. From the fact that another man was suspected of-' being in , collusion with Vroom; and that-two others against whom no charge is made, have skipped out, the suspicion is ' growing that several were interested in a. sharp practice of stealing Trom the firm of T. Libel & Co. The other sus-p�ted man, Cyr, was apprehended on the charge of stealing a ear of hay from the Alberta ITay Growers' Co., and is atpreseiit out on bail. Jack Eddy is also out on bail on a charge of receiving stolen property. The property is that in connection With the ttfsathtadtciy, an enuiely new hole j casesi a^�^'Yr?om '"|idr,JG/t- T^ A.

"That is one of the finest stretches of country I ever saw," said Grant Hall, assistant to Vice-President Huiy, to the Herald this morning just after his train returned from a lour of the A. "R. & I. lines, y After Mr. Hall's car reached Lethbridge'on the westbound local ycsier-ilay afternoon,, a special train ot thtec cars was made up, and thc^ .wiole party "consisting of Mr. Hall, Chief Engineer Sullivan, Winnipeg, S. N. Brooks, engineer of the Calgary district, Mr. St.'John, Winnipeg, General Superintendent Void. of. the Dominion ..Express, .Co., and about ten , others were taken over the A. R. & 1. lines visiting both Cardston and Coutts. Tl:e whole line was: gone over carefully, not only for the purpose of ascertaining the condition of: the road, but also to. learn the general state of afiairs along the line from a commercial standpoint. To say that they %yere all delight* cd with the stretch of country which they saw, the general air of prosperity as they travelled through the older towns along the western branch, and the rapid development the Stirling-Coutts branch is putting it-'mildly, and the whole party was of the opinion that in taking ovtr the A. R. & I. lines the company had added a very productive link to th'j system. �The..--amount- of passenger traffic ever the line was another thin;; vhi'.:h Mr. Hall commented upon very fav- orably. As the parij- stood talking on the depot platform the train, from con- for the heavy Ira flic which is tinually growing.  - However, little is likely to be done this summer except to put the t>ack in good shape to handle the season's crop in the fall.

In their report just issued; attention is drawn to the-expenditure of capital which the acceptance pf such contracts render necessary, olftaj;--ly owing to the improvement j�P%ei^; tension of the shipyards.
