Gars staiidi'ng on the tracks labelled dry-farming exhibits are the ordinary ilflit, and everywhere is a bustle such is seldom witnessed in the Leth- fcrldga terminal. This will be the busy week at tho Dry-Farming' headquarters. The of- fices have been remodelled for conven- ience in 'bundling the volume of busi- ness.

The people of the city as a whole are up to UK- I'nct that the congress is gcing to bo the event of the year, and more enthusiasm is being shown than lias been the case heretofore.

Water Probes Buried Rer Edward "Also Strongly Fav- ored It Dublin, Oct. has been caused In the camp of the Orange- men, by the discovery of the fact that the author of their slogan "Ulster will fight and Ulster will be was a fell traitor to the cause after all. Wilfrid Scaweu Blunt, digging into the records of'secret statesmanship, j through the Gladstonian period, up to the formation of the present ministry, has proved conclusively that Lord Randolph Churchill was actively working for Home Rule while he was, of the'Exchequer in the administration of the Marquis of Sal- isbury. In the fall ot" 1S85, he wrote many letters and gave numerous conferences tn Irish -members, in all of which he assured Parnell he was for Home Rule, a parliament at Dublin and all, 1 that he was educating bJs party to this point of view. Six months lat- er Gladstone's conversion to Irish self- government was announced. Lord Randolph Churchill switched around, and became tho most virulent foe of f the Irish Homo Rule party. This raking of the coals of the con- troversy over tho crave of a dead man, j h.'is shocked a good many people, both in England and here, where, altogether i apart from party opinion, tho fiery j father of Winston Churchill is held in i widow.

Rumor Causes Alarm London, Oct. Vienna comes a sensational report of an Aus- tro-Balkan agreement, laying the basis for a new European imperial confed- eration. Sir Edward Grey, Secretary of State for foreign affairs, declines to discuss the proposition, or to admit that Great Britain is officially aware of its existence, ih_fact. In diplomatic circles, however, the report is given general credence, and it does not seem to have taken the embassies by sur- prise. A former imder-secretary for foreign affairs is authority for the statement that Austria's interests in this regard have been the subject of official cor- respondence between England, Ger- many, Russia and Frace for the last month or six weeks. These nations, he says, will never tolerate such a strong combination in the far East.
