KNOX GIVEN A CHILLY SHAKE Tokio, Sept. Henry of Prussia, who will represent the Kaiser at the funeral of the Mik- ado, arrived here today.. Consid- erable comment was caused by the fact that Instead of sending government officers to meet him, as in the case of Secretary of State Knox, the new Mikado met Prince Henry at the railroad sta- tion. He will similarly honor Prince Arthur of Connaught, re- presenting King George of Britain who will arrive tomorrow. The distinction is interpreted by many., as lending color to the reports Japanese se- cretly think Secretary Knox came a commercial mission than one of pure sympathy, and are deeply offended at the appar- ent lack of sincerity behind .the. ostensible object of RAY KNIGHT THIS BOUGHT THE CATTLE Stackers Bought From Oklahoma Man for Milk River Ranch A big deal in cattle IB report- ed from Raymond.

CLASH WITH LABOR PROVING EXPENSIVE Liberals Lose Gladstone's Old Seat Due to Divi- sion in Ranks ARKANSAS NOT A RADICAL STATE Little Rock, Ark., Sept. 11 turns from Monday's general election In Arkansas are sufficient to confirm earlier indications that stale wide prohibition, and that with one excep- tion, the several other proposals sub- mitted to the voters failed of, enact- ment.

The Master of Elftmnk strongly ad- vised the Liberal executive to refrain from putting a candidate in the field and abandon the scat to the- Labor party. But his counsels wervi scouted, with tho present catastrophe to the government as the result. TO SEE HIS COUNTRY Quebec, Que., Sept.

LUMBER DEAL WAS NOT MERGER Officials ot the companies interested, denied in most emphatic terms the; story printed in the Herald yesterday that Hui sale of the Farmers' Lumber j company' involved a merger of tbuj Citizens and Pioneer companies. was simply a straight business deal i whereby tho Pioneer company bought' the yards at Magrath, Winhilreil, Grassy Lake and liiinlcU, while the Citizens the Diair.ond-j City yard, and the Malo-Mahon Lum- ber company of Tatjcr, take the yard Purple .Springs. Hcckcr Yatrs take over the yard at New Dayton. The other yards at. Taber and Milk River-will likely he discontinued. The sale was merely Ihe outcome of the unloading by Mr. I'elcr Lund of parts of his lumber holdings, and he accom- plished fins ny xuiiing to different companies.. These companies are as separate in action as any other two companies in a similar line of busi- ness, and the only mutual benefit by the sale is the removal of so iruch competition by the buying out oi rival. The Pioneer, Farmers, Iicckcr A Yales acted independently in their purchases and have no inter- ests in common The taking over nt the FarnTors' company, yards takes efiect at oacc.

Many Want the Chief Up to the Council Everybody is asking today what Is to be the outcome ot the police investigation The report of Judge Winter has taken the step further, leaving it lu the hands of the city council, ft now reaU with them what is to be done with GUles-. pie, Silliker and Egan. There are all sorts of rumors .on the streets today about the probable action of the city council at the day meeting 'when they will as a police committee. None, of these rumors have any ground for truth, however, and the aldermen will- not talk. The matter will be definitely settled on Friday, and no inkling of the probable outcome can he glean- ed today. That there are factions In tho city arising out of the trouble In police circles is seen from the fact that A. H. McKeown is busy today circulating a petition asking that Chief allies- pie be reinstated in view of the flndj ing of Judge Winter. This signed by many of the buBineBis men, but a large number; refuse to append their signatures, believing that, as "city council was elected by the peo- pie to handle the business of the city for this year, they allowed to dispose- of the case in way they may right and proper. Chief Gillespie himself refuses to talk for publication' although he is satisfied that the finding of the court judicial .enquiry has exonerated him, and paved thet way for his re- Inetatement. As for the future of Sllllker and Egan, this also will be decided at the Friday meeting. If the council is sat- isfied that they were justified -in' lay- ing complaints against the head department, they will probably vbe, reinstated. But just at the present moment dark.

Rumors of signing a petition are rife today iu the North Ward, and the Herald met; with the same desire, namelj% the presenting of a petition, to the city- council for the purpose of the chief -in his former position. North Ward ratepayers are more or less in- dignant at the manner in which the civic fathers have conducted affairs leading up to the suspension of Chief Gillespie and while one or two ad- mit almost reluctantly that the Chief may have erred unconsciously, still they hold firmly to the view that as Chief of Police he has been success in the matter of keeping down crime in the city.
