While placing the' designation south or north after the ivord "avenue" in the avenues as 'First avenue south, he had placed it in i front of the streets as South First street. The. council thought it be just as well to have a lin'- form plan in this regard, and accord- ingly made the amendment to place the'words- "south" and "north" af- ter the word "street" in the streets. Thc dividing line between north and south streets and avenues as pointed out. before in ihe Herald, is the rail- road yards and tracks. All avenues as well as streets south of thc tracks are designated "south" and all north arc designated "north." streets run north and south and the avenues 'east'and. vv-est.

There is a wealth of history con- nected with of the names being discarded. Those in the original towiisite, now the ir-ain port-ion of the city, were.taken from the names of shareholders in thc old Alberta Coal and Navigation Co., most of them old country people. The three streets Baroness, Kurdett and Coutts took their names from the late Bar- oness Burdett-CouUs. Her residence The fire bell clanged.' furiously at about eleven o'clock this morning. The chemical and -hose wagons dashe'd o.ut in response to an alarm sent in from the corner of Fifth Avenue and Eighth street.

The two men in the shack, Harold Owen and A. T. Bricknell, it is believed set the case on fire and were taken to the police station and booked on drunk and disorderly charges by Cons. Kroaing.

The Liber- als expect to ..poll-.-.-.and increase ihti majority However; It is; significant that neither Mr." McA'rthur' nor Mr. Riley would consent to gi-vc interviews last night because the vote was incom- plete and something, might happen. Mr. McArthur would not say he .was surdv elected and Mr. Riley did not concede it. The contest, which was perhaps the most vigorous over waged in Alberta was filled with surprises. Perhaps the biggest of iJiese' was thc big vote which the niilluirst polls gave Mr. Riley. This was. a personal tri- bute to the candidate. This district has carried Mr. Riley to victory long The Vote in Detail The vot-e is given below arid London roads. From the Bar- oness' son.

Since the completion of branches east from Wetaskiwin, to htardisty a large volume of traffic, of coal and lumber for northern Sas- Katchewan, which had formerly come via Letnbridge, Kirkcaldy and Re-' gma, was now .hauled north over the U. E. as it was the shortest route. ;rnere had consequently -been, 'an-in- crease in the volume-of traffic-over tnat branch, hence the need of build-' increased facilities at Macleod. Any reductions in the number pf, freight crews running out of Leti-' 'bridge since ago was due to the natural falling off traffic owing 10 the shorter crop and the smaller consumption of lumber and other mountain products, and by the doubl- ing up of loads consequent the 'opening up of the new line 'west-of .LetnDridge with its reduced grades.
