Han-na, vice-president an J general manager of the Canadian Northern railway continued his evidence this morn- , ing at the railway board's inquiry I into..western freight rates. ISlr. Han-! na commented on the fact tliat there is a great den/aiul in .Sasltatcliowau and Alberta tor branch lines. Uranch lines do not pay, however, and a portion of thivcost of their operation must be taken from the earnings of .the .main linos. II all the branch lines'd'etiiaftfled were built, the Canadian Northern would not he able to stand tho financial strain. Referring to the question of grain rates, Mr. Hanna said that the Canadian Is'orthern gives rates In the Canadian West which arc more tavoraMi'-than the rates which prevail in the western states. The rates ate frutii-ed on the basis ot making the I' possible charge on ihe cliipi prortuit of tho country, grain. The fanner is , the man who needs the direct i,i'i-,tfU | of the plan. For the year ending .lune ir'.l last, the gross earnings of the (.'aiiailian Nortliern were $32,800,00(1 or .Sidn,- 000 more than the Canadian I'liciliC in 1896, while the net carninj;s woie $15,000,000 or two millions l-.-ss Tlii'^^ made clear the dilfcrence in the cost ot operation as eomparcil with l8Dli. ni doing the work in sympntliy with western provinces and thi' (ihIci-at government, the great denrand ot the West at the present moment is i for additional railway facilities. Questioned as to the general conditions prevailing in the West, Mr. , Ilanna .said "The West is prosperous! in,spite of the exTsting freight rales. ' 1 do not think a more prosperous ; community can he tound in the world ! today than the Canadian West." Mr. i Hanna then turned to^he recent ciist' of operation. In recent years, he said, wages have been steadily going up, while rates have been coming down, since 1905 the pay of conductors has increased by 22 per cent., engineers 28 per cent., firemen 22 per cimU., sho,p employees 33 per cent., nnd de-spateliurs 20 per cent. .Mr. Ilanna then informed the board lhav, in 181)8 when the Canadian Nordiem commenced business the gross oarnines of the Canadian Pacific wore $22,1100,000 and the net earnings $8,000,000. ROBIN HOOD MILLS BUY ELEVATORS HAVE TAKBN OVER THE WALL-BRIDGE ELEVATORS IN THIS PROVINCE Calgary,'Oct. 10.-Another hig elevator deal has just been coniiileted in which the six ohivators previously owned and controlled by the Wal- ^ bridge levator Co., Ltd., wevy pur- ; chased by the Hobin Hood mills, 'I'his deal does not cover as many cleva- , tors as tJio recent Alberta Pacific ' lillevator deal, but is very important tor the elevators turned over by the Walhridge Elevator Co. are all situated at very important pointu, and have been carrying on a very extensive business, , Tlie elevator!) arc situated at\Iigh Uivbr, Woodhoiise, Carstairs, Acme, Stratliniorc nnd Hassnno, Calgury, Oct. 10.-The case agiilnst R.

The dirigible, wliich was one of the semi-rigid .type with internal air bal-looncttes to ^preserve its shape, invented by Major Cross ot the Prussian army, was being retilled with hydrogen ga.s by soldiers of the Hying corps, 'flic gas which is highly in-llaiiunablc, was being passed into the envelope into llie envelope from metal cylinders, when the friction of the gas itself on the filling lube caused lire to break out. A violent explosion ensued, conipietcly destroying llie dirigible and blowing tho hall to siilintcrs, None of the crew was injured. Elevators Filled and Farmers Pouring in With Their Wheat Carmangay, Oct. 10.-A serious blockade will be felt Jn this town vary shortly, unless the railway company takes'some means to supply cars for the loading of grain.  Already the four elevators are practically full wxi with farmers con8tantli;|f;POurlnB in with loads, the outlook- |t not very rosy. On Jlonday last there were fifty-two wagons full'of wheat and only a y.ery small percejrtage - could be handled by the elevators. This Is surely a great hardship,- as some of them have to haul for 30 to 40 miles, only to find when they reach here, they have either,to wait in town until such time as cars can be produced, or haul tho grain back again. It is to be earnestly hoped that things will be quickly remedied, aa there is not yet five per cent of the grain In this district marketed. THE TRAIN HANDS WERE VICTIMS Chicago Junction, Oct. 10.-Engineer Ranahan was killed, fireman Leiand was fatally Injured and Ave mail clerks were hurt in the wreck of a Baltimore and Ohio passenger train shortly before six o'clock this morning. The train, which was running between Chicago and New York, ran into a cut of empty cars which had been left on the main track by a switch engine only a little while before and which could not bb seen by the onginenien of the passenger train on account of a heavy fog. None of the passengers were Injured, although all ot them were badly shaken up. The engine and two m^ill cars were derailed. W. W.

The salute was fired by the 25th Battery, Major Stewart commanding, all four sections taking part in the ceremony. The InspecUon ot mllltla units tikis morning was one ol the most pleaalng features of tho ducal visit, both from the standpoint of the visitors �iid tlie public. From nine o'clock this morning until noon, every car to the grounds was packed, and at that the service was totally inadequate. Close to three thousand people lined the sides of the inspection grounds beside the Royal train. At eleven o'clock when the Governor-Genera) and the members 6f the staff out on the platform which had been erected on the ground, with His Royal Highness' emblem floating above it, all the units were drawn up to meet him, and gave the toyaX salute, the Battery with the guns, and the Cadets and Veterans in fheiUSual manner. Both the Citizens and, KUtle bands were also in the enclosure, and livened the proceedings with military music sultaible to the occasion. Twenty-alx veterans in-" rank, com-inai}ded liy Lieut.

"I w^ould liUe nothing ] better than a chanee to talk with them as long as I would Mke." The interest ot the Duke in the Veterans was very pleasing to ihe thirty odd men who lined up to meet him. Carrying the flag at the head ol the regiment wa^ probably the oldest soldier in Western Canada toaay-, Henry Tcnnaut, of Coutts, one of the' remaining Crimean veterans. Mr. Ten-nant went through the siege ot Se-bastapol and since then served in the rebellion, when he first came to Alberta from Winnipeg, coming overland in the dead of winter in sleighs from old -Fort Garry. The old veteran, who is 74 years of age, was rather played out after the long march this morning and could not talk to tho Duke as he would have wished. However, he told I-Hs Royal Highness that he had served in guards ot honor botli lo Her Majesty, the late Queen Victoria and her Royal Consort, talhor and mother of the Duke of Connanght, He has also served in the guard of honor in Canada to the present King, wlicn us the Duko of Cornwall and York he visited Canada in li!02.

The Duke stopped at this throe-footer, asked him his name, patted him ou the,head, and gave hhu such a pleasing smile, that it is pretty safe to assume that there is not a prouder boy in Lethbridge this evening than Max Muscovltch, of B Coin^-puny, Lethbridge Schools Cadet Bat-lallou.
