The reckless and unpatriotic attack begun yesterday by his majesty's loy- al Opposition upon Canada's national army, a spectacle in itself unique and unparalleled in any other country assumed an .amusing phase today when force was sudden- ly assailed with a raking lusilade from their own camp. The guns were hurriedly reversed and instead of be- ing traind on the government were di- rected at one of the Opposition's friends to wit. Col. Sam Hughes, to apply the term used against the Ross rifle by its enemies, the bolt which the Opposition shot yesterday "blew back" and scattered in dismay and confusion those who shot it.

Tobacco for Minors Mr. Ayk-sworth today introduced and explained his bill, "To restrain the use of tobacco by young persons." The bill i.s designed to prevent the use of tobacco in any form by those under 16 years of age and it shall be an offense on the part, of any one to give cigarettes or cigarette papers to any young persons. The penalty is provided for any offence by any young person against the enactment consist- ing of a reprimand for the first offence a minimum fine of for the sec- ond offence, and a minimum fine of 54 for the third offence. The officers of the law are empowered, to seize any tobacco found on any young person. Mr. Aylesworth said that there are no provincial laws in regard to the matter except in Manitoba and Que- bec, but as they differ in character, it has been deemed advisable to have a bill of general character applicable Musk, second; Dart third.

ALBERTA MILLER AT WINNIPEG Hs Is Full of Hope in Regard to Win- ter Wheat Prospects Winnipeg Free Press.) G. W. Green, manager of the Elli- son Milling and JElevator company, of Raymond, Lethbridge and Magrath is in the city on his first visit. Mr. Green, who is an ex-mayor of Ray- mond, says that crop prospects throughout southern Alberta were never brighter. Alberta fall wheat, he says, is a month in advance of last year. He brought a sample of grow- ing Alberta Red wheat from a acre field on the Wells Land and Cat- tle Co.'s farm and showed it to a rep- resentative of the Free Press. It measures nearly 14 inches in langth and is remarkably well stooled, pos- sessing from 15 td 20 strong stems from a single root. Spring wheat in Alberta is, of course, somewhat be- hind this, but shows an excellent growth and is, in Mr. Green's opin- ion considerably in advance of the Manitoba prop is without irrigation. MILK RIVER IRRIGATION An addition to the water supply of the Milk River irrigation project is secured by water right filed in the county clerk's office today by H. N. Savage, as agent for. the United States government, says the Fort Benton River Press. One of the water rights appropriates cubic feet per second to the flow of People's Creek to assist in irrigating acres of land lying between that stream and the mouth of Milk river. Another water right appropriates a similar am- ount of the flow of Dodson Creek, to bo used in the irrigation of about 000 acres of land in that vicinity. DR. BAIN DEAD Toronto, Ont., May Bain, L. L.

He walked in inno- cently enough, and appeared rather surprised to learn from Corporal Jenkyn that a warrant was issued for his arrest ior resisting arrest on the previous evening. He had unwitting- ly saved the police a great amount of trouble. Zimmerman was bailed out by D. G. WThite and will appear before a mag- istrate. The maximum penalty for resisting arrest is 14 years.
