At the last Dominion elections, this work was done by the returning officers. A "thin red line" as described in the Manitoba Act, was struck ihrouga names that had to be transferred to an adjoining constituency. The Dominion Gftvern- ment thought it had provided for this in a clause of its own act ;but it was held by the Attorney-General of Man- itoba that the returning officers and Mr. Leach, the Liberal organizer, who know anything about it, admit that the statement is not true. And so on wi'ch the remainder ol his statements, concerning the alleged "thin red line" scandals. There were some no doubt, said Sir Wilfrid Laurier; but they j were only such errors as were likely j to take place in reducing the 40 Pro-1, vincial constituencies to 10 Dominion i constituencies; and in distributing! the votes to each.

C-, May terrible accident took place yesterday at the Upper Bonning-ton Falls, 12 miles of Nelson, John Mills, John Sharpies and a man named Richmond lost their lives through the upsetting of a boat in which they were cross- ing- the Kootenay. The current is very swift and it is supposed that one of the oars broke. The men were going on a fishing expedition. "Paddy" Mills was Nelson's provincial policeman and started the Paradise mine, west 01 the city, in 1S9S. He was 65 years of age.

Antwerp, May railroad acci- dent of unprecedented horror in the annals of Belgian train disasters, oc- curred at 9.06 this morning at Con- tich, a station six miles southeast of Antwerp on the main line. An express train from Antwerp to Brussels crash- ed into a train loaded with pilgrims on their way to a local shrine. This train was standing on a siding. Sev- eral of its cars were telescoped and shattered to matchwood. The total number of dead is placed at 50 and tho wounded at one hundred. Rescuers from Contich were soon at the scene and the labor of succor- ing the injured and removing the dead was conducted with all possible haste. Special trains with doctors, priests and 'nurses were sent to Contich from Antwerp and Brussels. The accident is supposed to have been due to a mis- placed switch. The engineer and the fireman of the express train were killed outright. It now appears that the locomotive of the express train jumped the track and plunged into and completely wrecked the lust three passenger coaches of the train on the siding. This train was carrying an excursion of pilgrims to a. local shrine. i Contich is a junction on the main line between Antwerp and It is a town of Of the serious railway accidents in Belgium the most notable one- of recent years was one. j at Ottignies in .1895 when seventeen people were killed and another at Forest near Brussels when twenty- i one people were killed and over one hundred injured.

Petersburg, May is a possibility that King Edward will prolong his projected visit to Russia and visit Emperor Nicholas at Peter- hof. The original plan restricted the coming of the British sovereign to the Reval because of the fear of a revo- lutionary demonstration and on ac- count of the embarrassment that would attend the necessary police ar- rangements. But the lively popular interest in the visit of the Empire king and the hearty approval voiced by the entire press of Russia has giv- en birth to a desire, that he make a more extended sojourn. The matter is no-v.under consideration. Claresholm. May a lot of discussion lias been caused among the farmer people as to the decision in the late case of Symonds against Gunilerson which was tru-d at the re- cent sitting of the District court here. The horse bought at a sale un- der the Estray Ordinance some time ago and the purchaser resold the horse to Gunderson. Later the origin- al owner turned up and sued Gunder- son for the horse. It turned out in the evidence that the sale had not been in conformity- with the proper Li-gal requirements and the result of the case- was that the horse was orcl-red to be returned to Symonds. In seems hard lines' on purchasers that they should suffer in this way. Another decision of interest was that in the case of Ugland vs. Berg, in which it was decided that owing to the transaction having happened before the coming into force of the Dominion Lord's Day Act and the only act applicable being the old English Act of Charles II. an agree- mem entered into on Sunday was I void because it was not made as in' the ordinary occupation oi the party seeking to uphold it. MacLeod, May J. Hamlin of Pincher Creek, has been arrested on the charge of perjury preferred against him by Mr. Foy, a detective of the C. P. R. This case arises out of the trial of Operator Mullin, who was acquited here at the late sitting of the Supreme court on the charge of manslaughter. It appears that Hamlin who is an operator, in giving evidence at the Mullin trial before the magistrate stated that during his three years employment with the com- pany, as night operator, he had had no holidays, and the officials of the company claim this statement to be false. The prisoner came before mag- istrate Stames today and was remand- ed for further hearing until Tuesday next. Colin Macleod who defended Mullin will also defend the prisoner. Hamlin. Dallas, Texas, May lives lost, more than a million dollars worth of property destroyed, fuur thousand persons homeless, and the telegraph and telephone wires west and southeast put out oi commission, are the results oi an over-flow of the Trinity river last night and today. The poor residence quarter of Dallas is under several feet of water and thousands have lost their whole ef- fects. The waterworks plant is out of commission and the light plant is inundated.

Obed Smith, assist- ant Superintendent of Immi- gration from Mr. L. H. Jeliff, whose farm is situated at at Spring Coulee, Alberta: "I had this year (1907) 214 acres in crop, ISO acres of wheat, 8 acres of barley, and 26 acres of oats. My average yield of oats to the acre was 55 bushels, wheat 52 bushels, and barley 30 bushels. The value to me per acre was: Wheat, 344.24; oats, j barley, The -value per acre to me last year (1906) was: Wheat 313; oats, barley, The highest price obtained by me this year or offered me for my grain was: Wheat, 67 cents per bushel; oats, SI.05 per hundred; barley, per hun- dred, 51.10. The above is bas- ed on value of oats, auu barit-y, offered to me or sold by me at threshing time for October 1 to November, not to the high prices offered me for seed purposes on grain reserved for that use. I had a small piece of land on farrn planted to "Khankoff" wheat, a Russian variety of hard winter wheat, which yielded 63.6 bushels por acre, but a?
