Many or the ladies of the court have already signified an intention to remain in retirement so long as Premier Canalejas continues in power.

The es- sence of religion is love and the es- sence of love; is giving 'and serving to the fullest extent of one's ability. The man who is not embued with missionary zeal is not of Christ and the man who does not believe in for- eign missions has nothing-left but the 'Judiast-ic religious idea of saving his "own mean little soul. H. Ballantyne The former part of Mr. "Ballantyne's address was devoted to expressing some oi the thoughts he got while attending; the Canadian National Mis- sionary 'Congress at Toronto, and the States National. Missionary at Chicago. The fact that "fonly one in four womeji and one in eight men -who w-ere members of the clwrches of America contributed to missions showed the dire need of the IJaymen's Missionary Movement. Can- wss the first country to adopt national missionary policy and was closely followed by the United States. The missionary problem is no longer local, but is imperial.

Was Up The Board of Commission- ers for Canada Tield a meeting in the court Jib use this morning and dispos- ed of all five cases set down for hear- ing here. The most important case was tha application of the Canadian Pacific Kail way Company for an order auth- orizing the location of a proposed new station at Kipp in the .northeast quar- ter of section 30, township 9, range 22. This case is a sequel to the or- der .obtained, by H. ..Grant Hannan, proprietor of the Scottish stores at Kipp, in. February last, rescinding the order granted the C.-P.H. a. year. ago changing the location of their Kipp townsite and.Carinangay line junction to "a point approximately a mile west of "the point originally decided upon by the railway company and deferr- ing the application of Mr. Hannan for an order compelling the company to erect a station on the site originally intended. Mr. Hannan, it will be re- membered, purchased for. townsite a parcel of land in section -9, at the school 'lands auction sals 'about fifteen months ago, the land ad- joining a'parcel of 25 acres purchased from'the Dominion government some time.previously for the stated purpose of being a -way .and station. The C. ;P. purchase the parcel of auction sale, but 'Mr Hana-an.-'- outbid- their' agent. The C. P. their' stop- on the'original junction and yards, purchased another of land further west, and secur.ed an or- der from the'-board authorizing them to change their plans for yards accordingly. This was the or- 'der'rescinded: by the board last Feb- ruary. At the -sitting this morning the C. P. R. .was represented by R. B. Ben- nett, counsel; F. W. Peters, as- sistant Land Commis- sioner Griffi-n: General Supt. Price, and. also being present. W.- C. Ives represented H. Grant Han- nan. and-opposed the application. Li .opening the case R.

Sept. is stated that the Georgian Bay Canal project will likely be a prominent feature of dis- cussion at the forthcoming session. Although a" private company has charter to do this work, influences are being brought to bear to have the government take up the work as a state undertaking. The main argu- ment'.advanced is that the revenue derived from the of wa- ter'power would be sufficient to pay interest on the cost of the undertak- ing.
