PUISWINM US THIS NOT A NEW DAYTON WITH EXTENSION OF RURAL LINES THERE WILL BE GREATLY IMPROVED SERVICE GOOD OMEN PRESIDENT-ELECT OUT FOR A WALK MET WITH A RATTLE- SNAKE Dayton, Alta., Nov. ar- rival of the party of telephone build- ers in the town and district recently marked auoth-er step in the advance- ment of the community. Not only will three new rural lines be constructed, but it is almost decided that a local j service will 'he given, each subscriber resident in New Dayton will have a separate line. One of the! rural lines will run 'east in the direc-j tiou of Kesseler Bros.' farm; another east and north, touching Koupps and Schills, and the third south and west via Morelands and the Miami Farm. In all probability the central office will remain in B. Duncan's store, but an operator will be employed to look after connections. About twenty- five men are in the construction gang aiid work is being rushed as rapidly as possible. John McKay, who has hoen head salesman in L. B. Duncan's store, has severed his connection 'with the mer- cantile business, and left for Marker's sheep ranch, east of New Dayton, where he will have charge of the flocks of Bishop Marker, of Alagrath. Mr. Laurie, of the Bank of Hamilton of Winnipeg, was a, visitor ia tC'wn last week, looking over the district. Mr. Laurie was formerly an employer of Mr. L. B. Duncan, of the local store.

For five miles he walked, swinging a heavy black cane, which came to grief on tho fourth mile, when Capt. "Bill" McDonald, Texas ranger and 'body guard, tried to kill a rattlesnake. The Governor spied ths snake, curl- ing through the leaves, and pointed it out to the captain. Immediately the face of the veteran hunter became ani- mated. borrowed the governor's crouched low, antl slapped the rattler into silence, but broke the cane. The captain apologized, and promised to buy the President-elect a new cane, but Governor Wilson re- minded him that he had many more canes at home. The President-elect heard today that United States secret service men were com hi g to guard him. "I found to my he said, "that it is the interpretation of the law to guard the President-elect even before he is inaugurated." Capt.

Fernie, Nov. new devel- oped in tlie freight handlers' strike here tcday, beyond the fact that Con- j Bruce, a C. P. R. special con- stable from Calgary, came in on the morning express. "No freight is being handled, and Superintendent Moth, of Cranbrook, is hero assisting in the handling of baggage. The Board of Trade met last night in sp-ecial session, and passed the fol- lowing preamble and resolution: "Whereas, tlie Canadian Brother, hood of _ Railway Employees, a-re on strike; and is greatly disorganized throughout the entire Wost; and Whereas, in the opinion of thi Board a settlement of tin strike should be effected as promptly as possible; Resolved, that the Minister of T L bor acceed to the request tho Bro- therhood, and appoint a Board of Coir ciliation under the Lemieux Act." Kverythfng is perfectly quiet, and there arc no indications of any at- tempt at violence by the striking men. General Manager Mensilos, of tho North West. Improvement Cu., is in town from Hoslyn, Wash. He has been looking over the Ccal Creek r.iines, han been visiting Manager Wilson, Mr. Menzies Is ac- companied by his wife, and is return ing from a visit to Northern Alberta. Cranbrook, B. C., Nov. G A meeting of thu Board of Trade was held last evening for the purpose of meeting the delegates from the Brotherhood and hear the reasons why the men are on strike. The case on behalf of the men was ably put before the board by the of- ficials of the Brotherhood and it was clearly pointed out that tlie chief points at issue were tho refusal of the C. P. It. to agree to tho appointment of a conciliation board and failure to recognize the Brotherhood. The Brotherhood state they-are perfectly willing to submit to the ruling of such a board and deeply regretted tho fact that inconvenience had been caused to tho public through their action. They feel they grievances and are only asking for the chance of lay- Ing such grievances before the board On behnlf of the men, it was pointed out that the average wage ot" those men affected ivas a month. Every effort has been mado by tho Brother- hood to settle the matter In an amic- able way, out without success. Letters I have been written to the 'C. P. H. ofiicials and have been ignored and, the retiuest to meet the oinclals re- fused. After hearing tho facts laid before them the Board stated that they con- sidered the roquesfs ot! the Brother- hood were reasonable and just and .in- timated they would take action in the matter and use their influence to- wards obtaining a settlement of this unfortunate dispute. Why won't tho C. P. R. agree to the formation oE a conciliation .bpiiriS. Docs it meaii they are afraid to do so because they will have to pay out 'a few more dollars? Tho men affected fire tho clerks, freight IK en and baggage checkers, and are the only men on the entire system whose union is not officially recognized. It certainly seems un- just that the public should be so in- convenienced through the action of the company when tltc men appear to have such a strong case for inquiry and it is hoped pressure will bo brought to bear upon tho C. P. R. of- ficials, which will result in an enquiry being held. At the present time business at the railway depot is practically at a stand- still and perishable goods are being seriously affected. In estimating the power required to drive a vehicle at a certain rate it is figured that the air friction varies as the square of the speed.
