T.

P. :R. in the West and to build lines sweep- ing the great wheat country .south of its main line from Winnipeg to Ed- monton. The result may be to open up another large stretch of agricultur- al land and give a great stimulus to settlement in the West. As the next move toward placing the road in. a position to compete for the grain car- rying trade of the West the Company proposes to construct a line across Manitoba, Saskatchewan and South- ern Alberta. The route as projected will start from the present main line north of Brandon, run to Brandon, and thence run west across Saskatch- ewan into the coal district of South- ern Alberta. This will give the G. T. P. access to the vast area of the southern half of the granary of the empire, and will have in incalculable effect on the agricultural interest of the the terri- tory served. It will be another large item in the finishing of "Laurier's Work" during the next four years. The above report has been confirm- ed by a Western Associated Press De- spatch from Ottawa which reads as folows. "Reliable information has been re- ceived here that the G. T.

Fleetwood sent to the en cil a petition signed by sixty of tke men employed on the streets asking that a jmedica.1 man be appointed. In an accompanying "Mr- Fleet- wood said that a great majority of the men had expressed a preference for Dr. Mewburn. He had seen the doctor and he had offered to take the i work if the men could agree to a de- diction of one per cent, from their monthly wages which would pay for J medical attendance lor them and their families, they to pay for their own j medicines and for maternity cases. Aid. Cunningham moved that the appointment of a medical man be made general over the whole civic staff and that the list be made com- plete and be presented1 again. The mayor wanted to "have the ap- pointment made at once so as not to have those already desiring the medi- cal attendance without it. The al- dermen thought that the permanent force of the city office, the electric and waterworks department, the po- lice force and the firemen should start on the same basis if they wanted to. It was a privilege that should be ex- tended to all the staff at once. There are about forty who are not on. the list -presented. Aid. Hutton pointed out that as it is not legal to deduct the medical fees without the employee's consent, care must be taken to explain it to everyone entering- the city's employ. Aid. Cunningham's motion passed and before the next regular meeting all the employees will have an oppor- tunity of showing their desire to have the medical attendance on the proposed, basis.

Wilfrid Lau- rier today addressed ten thousand people at two rousing meetings. At both meetings the premier spoke to enthusiastic crowds, which filled the auditoriums to the doors and which greeted him with the same spontan- eous and generous acclaim that has been so marked a feature of all his campaign meetings. The premier's addresses were large- ly along the line of his speech on Saturday to an audience numbering ten thousand. He appealed for a renewal of the people's confidence on the ground that the Government had given to Canada twelve years of un- exampled prosperity, had turned the tide of immigration to this country, had promoted the unity of all races in the Dominion and had given Can- ada a new status in the Empire and among the nations of the world. As opposed to this ground of ap-' peal, he contrasted the Conservative i cry of "Time for a change" and their compaign of mud slinging. The cry that "Laurier must go" he said would be no more effective than the old cry of "Mowat must Mowat did not go and Laurier will not go until his work of the unification and of national development was done.
