Colonel Wodehr)U8�, presiding at the annual, meeting, ot, the latter concern said that .beyond what had i^ppoared in th�, annual > report ot the Canadian I'adflc Rail waj', the board had no knowledge tjiat the letter had .secured such large interest in the Alberta company OS would constituto substAntial control.

The steady upward mo>-cment that has been in progress in tho price ot Alberta capital stock-the present ure is some 30 points above the lowest of the current year-jias, of course for some time past inijlcated import nnt market developments, quite apart from the material progress in the fortunes of this concern; and, as the chairman naively admitted at tho meeting, "should the Canadian Pacific have become large holders of their stock, they could consider themselves part of the Canadian Pacific Railway." Apart from tho reverse sustained in connection with floods, which will probably cost the Alberta compony in the neighborhood of t50,-000, tho directors' account of their stoward.ship is excellent in every respect, and the stockholders' are to be congratulated upon the very satisfactory progress recently made by this rnilwaj', land, irrigation and colliery concern.

AN INTERESTING CHANGE (Winnipeg Free Press ) On November 8, the Roman Catholic Church in Canada with the cwcption of the vicariates apostolic of ' Athabasca, Alockenzic, Tomiscam-ing and Labrador, uud the Roman Catholic Church in the United States pas.icd from the control of the "Sa-ci-ed, Conpfregtttion of the, I'ropogon-dtt" to enter for the future into di-tect relations with the Vatican. .This development in the administration of the lioman Catholic Church in Canada WHS enjolnetl by the i'ope in a "Sapienti Causilio" ot Jime 29 lust, though tho change only took cfToct on the 8tii of this month.
