Your correspondent learns that Mr. A. J. McMillan, of Rossiand, 'kftBAKing director of Le Roi Mining Smelting Company, is likely to be offered the position of Lieutenant- GoTernor of British Columbia, suc- ceeding Hon. James Dunsmuir, who has asked to be relieved. It is only within the last day or two that Mr. McMillan has been con- sidered a possibility for the office, his consent having been obtained to allow his name to be submitted ito Ottawa, party leaders in the pro- Vince think that there can hardly be any doubt that Sir Wilfrid Laurier will tender him the position. Mr. McMillan has long been identified with the Liberal party in British Co- j lumbia, though noi in any aggressive way, being for the most part absctrb- ed in his business interests. He is .personally very popular, and is uni- versally considered the type of man who would fill the position of Lieut- Governor with dignity and honor. Mr. J. -A. Macdonald, leader of the Solid.

A LADIES' BRANCH A local branch of the Grand In- ternational Auxiliary of the Brother- hood of Locomotive Engineers was organiezd yesterday afternoon in the K. of P. hall by the wives and sis- ters of the local trainmen. ATI "At Home" was given by the ladies in the "Caledonian Hall last- evening at- tended by the their fam- ilies and friends. (Regina Standard.) In the midst of the corner stone laying ceremony yesterday afternoon an old man: bent with the weight of years, and wearing a shaggy grey whisker the keep of which denoted years of life in a frontier country, rose from a rear seat on the plat- form. One of the formal addresses of the day was being delivered, and the rising of the venerable man immedi- ately attracted attention. All eyes were turned upon him as he walked slowly up the aisle between the two rows of seats. In marked contrast to the shining tiles of the male guests and the gorgeous dresses of the ladies, he looked neither to right nor the left, but made his way direct to the chair where His Excellency had been on the war path and- -the gallant General Custer was seat out with a company of-cavalry to quell the troubles. Sitting Bull and his band and! not a single man returned to the frontier towns to tell the tale. When the Indians with Sit- ting Bull came into Canada and ed the Legare post, they had the scalps of Custer's'band hanging from their belts. They' were in full war paint and prepared'for anything: Armed to the teeth with rifles that were modern at that time, they were prepared to resist arrest. Legare saw his stores go, and was'thankful he came out alive. Probably all that saved him was the fact that in his veins coursed the blood of Indian forefathers.

Without a word the old man turned and offered his hand to Premier Scott. The Premier acknowledged the salutation and the old man turned to leave. Marching back to .his seat as slowly as he iiad come forward, he secured his coat and hat, and left the place. Many wondered who was this "old man, but few knew that to his life was attached a history as interest- ing as the brightest page of fiction. It was Jean Louis Legare. The man stores had been raided by the war chief Sitting Bull and whose j 'home for years bore the brunt -'of I frontier 'attacks, had'come all -the way from Willow Bunch to shake hands with the personal representa- tive of the Great White Father.

He had a large'terms with the government of the stock of stores in there many years! United States and returned across ago, but one day the chief Sitting Bull and his band came along. They were "heap big hungry" and made day, they made their tra- dition tells that at the present site of Pilot Butte they encountered a herd of buffalo. An awful slaughter took place and when night fell thous- 'ands of buffalo lay dead upon the plain. Years ago the piles of bones could be plainly seen marking the spot where the Sitting Bull band skinned the Buffalo, and from These the Wascana Creek was named "Pile ov Bones Creek." From this district Sitting Bull and his band went to the Qu'Appelle val- ley country, and visited the Catholic mission at Quebec. The aged Father Hugenout can sit to this day at the front door of the Mission; and point out; to' the visitor. the exact turn In the road around which he first saw the Sitting Bull band approaching more years ago. ,The priest and Jean Legare took council .with Sitting Bull and it was as a result of their advice that the Indian made Fit-Reform Suits and Have proved their today are the choice of well dressed men in every section of Canada.

Lady Cardigan declares that the Court of King Edward is "broader- minded" now than it has been for years, and King does not exhi- bit those sometimes rather unkind and inconsistent peculiarities which were shown by' his mother." She thinks that her Majesty's dislike of widows marrying again was very re- markable, "considering that she was the offspring of a happy second mar- riage.7' She goes on to say ''The late Queen was" most kind to me when I was young, but I fear the way in which T defied convention, be- fore'I married Lord Cardigan, did were unpleasant, and "had Dizzy lived in those days, his wife would have been able to divorce him without anv difficulty.
