'PAGE TIN THE BUCHANAN'S BLACK AND WHITE CHILI AGREES TO ARBITRATION Santiago. Chili, Nov. Chil- ian government today opened nego- tiations with Wasliiregion with a view of submitting the Alsop of the United States against Chili to a specially -constituted court -of -arbitra- tion at the Hague. Thk action followed the notifica- tion through Chilian minister at Washington that the U. S. would close its legation at Santiago within a few days unless the Chilian government consented to an adjustment of the claim or a reference to the. Hague. This notification was regarded by. many as an ultimatum. In 1874 the j Alsop company of New York and Con- necticut advanced large sums of money to the Bolivian government in exchange for the right to valuable guano deiwsits. in that country and other concession.

The Supreme Incident To many who now have their homes in Central Alberta the- Edmonton Land Office has had an entity almost human, bet probably very few know of the interesting bit of history to which that entity relates. After sev- enteen years the Land Office has had an opportunity to recover from the supreme incident in its career, and south bank of the Saskatchewan and the company proceeded to popularize .South Edmonton, now called Strath- cona. Strong antipathy arose be- tween the two settlements on- the north and south banks of the river. 'South Edmonton'was puffed with pride at the acquiring of railway faci- lities, and. Old Edmonton, perched on its regal throne on the -high, bank to the north, viewed with wrath the at- tempt to rob it of its glory. A Tais of Two Cities From this situation sprang a tale of two cities. Edmonton had what South Edmonton very much coveted land office. History relates that the 'land "agent was interested in the prosperity of South Edmonton and used his influence to have the office moved across the river. His repre- sentations to the Minister of the In- terior, Hon. Mr. Dewdney, lat-er char- acterized in the Bulletin as "Dirty -were successful, and the order was received from far away.

Nova Scotia wool is. perfectly blended. It is sdft: and smooth, yet staunch and strong. It can be spun like silk and wears almost like steel. Garments, knitted of this fine wool, give the and are not heavy or bulky. It is no exaggeration to say that the Stanfields get the pick of the Nova Scotia wool. The founder of these mills did much to develop the throughout the Maritime Provinces. The farmers saved their best wool for him, and continue to send their high grade wool to the Stanfield mills. .Then, this wool reaches the mills in the best possible condition.

Loud.. would have been the note ot indignation on the part o! the ,old Edraontonians Jf the order generally known. Strategy was to be the game of the land agent, and the office was to be moved by stealth. On a Saturday afternoon, toward the close rof.June, building, was jacked and .placed three wagon boxes. Preparations were al- most complete for moving off when a small boy was despatched into the Bulletin Office to insert an advertise- ment before the paper went to press, that the Land Office had been moved to South Edmonton. Citizens to the Rescue The trumpet of Mars wa.s sounded along the Jasper avenue- of twenty seven years ago. Blue was the ozone with the deprecations which were called on the head of the offenders; Mayor McCauley, now Warden Mc- Cauley, led the van of indignant citi- zens to the Land Office, where tMe horses were beginning to" make of with the treasure. A sudden Malt was made, the whiffietrees were re- moved, the nuts on the axles -were unscrewed, so as to put further nro- gress out of the question. A guard was "laced on the whick the arrival of the police could mot disperse. That evening a public meeting was held, at which the 'following resolu- tions were unanimously passed "That in the opinion of ..this meet- ing the removal of the government land and timber offices is contrary to the wishes and detrimental to the best interests of nine-tenths of tfc.e people of this district. "That pending the receipt of a re- ply from the Department of Interior to said removal, the citi- zens of Edmonton and vicinity be a committee, with power to add- their numbers, to. prohibit remoTAl and that a copy of the resolutions lie wired to the Premier."

Captain G-riesbacfc came up from Fort with a pOsse of Mounted Police, um- instructions to ,360 that the Office was moved at once. "What shall I do said the coi- stabulary captain.

I am prepared to take my cham- ces if you care to do the same." A feeble attempt was made carry out the order, but the guard" proved too ominous and tfctj idea was dropped. I On Wednesday at ten o'clock tte Land Office was back in its place i more open for business. It had stood! for three days on the' wheels, prob-: ably wondering at the strange treat-1 ment to which it has been subjected.
