A t all the receptions lie held since his return the partisan element lias been eliminated. The series 01 wet-, comes throughout have been spontan- eous tributes to the PreurJer 'as a leader and a man. The spirit of thousands who lined the wharf and long route seemed one of sincerity and the tribute paid was appreciated by Premier Borden, who in a brief address at the landing slatre and at the reception in the tVindsoc hotel, expressed his pleasure at he- ing home again'. The keynote of both his utterances in reply to addresses from the Mayor -was for an entente conliale which exists between Uie two- nations and between the two great races of 'this country.

Their Iloyal Highnesses hud an interesting day of it yesterday. The Ducliuss and Prin- cess Patricia remained hi Calgary, while the Duke went out on the Uoy- al train to Gleichen, fifty miles-east of Calgary, and motored out from that point in a .wide circuit over iho htm his first opportunity of seeing, except from the train, an expanse o! western country. The runs which had Ijeen planned from previous points on the tour were abandoned on account of bad weather. Yesterday's motor run afforded him views of wheat fields, spreading to the sky-rim, with the heavy crop al- ready largely in .the stook and with cutting operations in progress. Oats, barley and flax were also seen, and during the day motors passed 'urge lierjs of cattle grazing on the slopes in the vicinity of the water courses. "Many fine bunches of horses were al-. seen. The motor run was wholly undulating plains to view tlm trrigs- j s tion works of the Southern Alberta through the great acrea across which Irrigation company. The Royal I'v.ini the. water is to be carried more than a hundred miles to the company's acres. It was an ideal day for such an expedition, the interest being heightened by the fact that tii order to save time and give His Royal was preceded to Gleichen by -he .spe- cial train carrying 'the 'Canadian ag- ticy party, including' Mr. Arthur Grenfell, Kir Ronald Lane, Sir Wil- liam Garstin, Sir Arthur -Lawlcy, Sir Charles Lord Lord Stanhope, Lord Hyde, Major Malcolm Murray and a number of guests, including Premier Sifton, Hon.

But it half past four when the string of a dozen motors, after having covered IB 90 miles, arrived at the hand- somely decorated Slarquee in Gleieh- en where the luncheon was served. The'Duke was delighted with "Hjs day on the plains, which as lie re- marked in the pleasant little speech made at the luncheon, had given Highness the greatest possible variety of views, the trails were several times departed from, and short cuts made, the procession of motors hav- ing more than once to retrace its course to find a better way round a hill or across a valley. This was specially enjoyed by the Duke, who] jocularly spoke of it as an experjenc of being lost on the plains. Served Together At luncheon, after the motor run the health of His Koyal Higuncs was proposed by Sir Ronald, who in the course of a brief aud most felici tous speech recalled the days when the Duke and he were subalterns to gcllicr in the rifle brigade in Canada being stationed-at Montreal, and re marked that if any man had predict ed in those days the present develop menfc in 'Western Canada he w.oulc have been set down as a visionary In replying to Sir Ronald's speech the Duke also indulged in remimsc ences, recalling one experience whic' he and Sir Ronald had together a: young men, when they were nearl; drowned at the mouth of the Seine speaking of the great irrigation work; which had .been visited during th day, he confident belie that as a result.of that magnificentlj planned system there would be iai mouse developments of prosperous ?g ricultural activity throughout th vast area of richly fertile soil'sout east of the area traversed in tbi motor run, thus to he served with an assured provision of water.

P. W. Bon- Jiiuis de Vriea, a banker of The Hague, Holland, and director of the Mortgage Bank of 'Can- ada, announced in Edmonton that more than of Holland cap- ilal will be invested in the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan the com- ing year. The company has already placed, of Dutch money in the two provinces, and, the banker added, the returns are highly satis- factory. Tbe head offices are in Win- nipeg, (he business in the Edmonton district being handled by the Nation- al Trust Company, the Royal Trust company and the Standard Trust, com pany. Discussing the possibilities of war between Germany and England, Dr de Vries said: '-The economic interests of Europe are so deeply involved in the main tenance of international peace that am forced to believe that the govern ments of 0-ermany and Great Britain w'iil think twice before going to war Tbe commercial classes of both na- tions realize that their best inter- ests He in peace." The banker however intimated that the influence of the armament mak- ers and the newspapers is strong. "The newspapers of Germany an-d Elugland are he added, "and undoubtedly much anti-German sentiment is expressed in the English newspapers and the same thing prob- ably is true of the German press. Powerful newspapers, which inflame international distrust and jealousies, might lead to complications, in spite of the efforts of the mercantile cs to eliminate Uie economic waster of war."

The child was quickly taken to her home and with Dr. Gillesple in attendance is doing well. Owing to the bad weather and the departure of some of the players, II looks as if the tennis tournaments tho Hosmer Tennis club will have to be abandoned for this year. The special meeting which was held at the school house on Saturday morn- ing lust for the purpose of electing throe trustees was to all intents anil purposes a failure, and it is more than likely that Hosmer in the very near future will be faced by the possibility of having school closed; that such state of things is possible is cer- tainly a disgrace to the community; the only people present at the meet- ng- were the three late trustees, auditor, Mr. H.
