"A Central News message, dated Alberta, Thursday, says: Th-e reception given to the Duke of Counaught last evening by Uie city of Lethbridge was not surpassed in cordiality by any accorded during the tour, although a large proportion of the residents are Americans, who are estimated to number 00 per cent, of the population. The Hon. A. L. sifton. Premier of Alberta, accompanied the illumiuattens were admirable. The .party witnessed a display of the nat- ural gas 'which is supplied to the in- habitants of Lcthb-rid'se at the rate of 15 cents per 1000 cubic feet. Tho gas from a sis-inch pipe was ignited, and the flames shot up to a height of 100 feet, about feet of gas being consumed. To-day is a public the Duke of Connaught will open a manual training school, and the parts- visit to a coal mine. A public re- ception place in the evening. CONSUMPTION OF COTTON INCREASES London, Oct. -world's con- sumption of cotton is increasing rap- idly, according to the annual statistics of cotton stocks and consumption is- sued by tire International Federation of Easter Cotton Spinners. The fig- ures rcse from bales ill 1910-1911 to In 1911-12. At the same time spinners' stocks of American cotton liavo increased by nearly a million bales. The report points out that as the world's spindles have only increased in this time from to it -is clear that the season just ended has been extraordinarily free from "short time" and labor dis- putes involving long and expensive stoppages. Depending upon re-ports of a bumper cotton crop in the United States, the Lancashire spinners are looking for- ward to a season of unprecedented -prosperity. During the last seven years the farming population tf New South Wales has increased by 7000 people.

BAD.GALE AT QUEBEC Qu-ebec, Oct. at the rate of a mile a minute a violent fall gale swept over the city and neighbor- hood yesterday and caused much dam- age, the full extent of which is not known yet. Shipping was much em' barrasseil and several bateaux 'were carried ashore. One barge was sunk, ferry boats were taken out of their course considerably, and several roofs and galleries in the city were blown away. Express wagons were blown over and broken and the electrica! service put out of business. OF BRITISH INDIES MATTER TO BE BROUGHT BE- FORE BRITISH GOVERNMENT FOR APPROVAL London. Oct. Federation of f cnlnnii'H 's probably to ho brousht before Hrilish government for approval very shortly. The proposed fudoration has been much discussed since the colonial ollice srniitod iwrmissioii for the trade ngreomont I'cnvcen Canada and tlie West Indian colonies. C. Murray, administrator of St. Vincent, lately prepared a schema for the fer- cration, but tills proved umiccBptable to the West Indies because it exclud- ed from iho plan Jamaica, thc Balia' mas and British Honduras. Tl... tllflnoi.ne nl till! COlOllial OlTlCC wiil'rarry "grea't weight If it declines j to aid tlie proposed fciloi-ition. for it controls all tho colonies except Barba- does. which has it constitution which gives It a more nearly responsible government than any other colony outside of the dominions. One of the initial difficulties to be r-vercoiiiB in the efforts of the federa- tion will be concerned in the mainten- ance of this constitution. It has been proposed to overcome this difficulty by malting Batliatloes the seat of tlie new federal government. It is claimed that federation would greatly reduce the cost of administra- tion, which is now disproportionately high: that, it would lead 10 the lisluuent of a common treasury, there-. by enhancing the credit of the colon-1 ies; that It would result in the aboli- tion of tlie present customs duties which the Islands have raised against each othc-r, and that it would srad-j ually establish uniform laws in place of the present tangled skein of Im- perial laws and orders in council. a Sacrifi ice E.
