One result of the fine weather which! has continued without even a bad frost I to date, is that many fields especially j along the foothills section, have been: cut, ready to thresh, which the owners' had never expected to make more than feed. This feature of the operations is going io have a bearing on the total elevator .there taken in-over-105.-' 000 bushelsf'ofjgrain. -to date, mostly .-No. 1 If would nW appear xtli'aT the'Ca'rdslon-lialey and the Ray- mond districts next in .the matter average yields. The Cards- ton average will be close to 25 bush- els while there will be more than a few 40 bushel yields. One large crop at Raymond Is running 30 bushels and the average for the whole dis- trict will be- over 25.: There is every reason to believe that the average wheat yield for the whole of the acre- age cut will be 18 bushels to the acre. Threshing is about '.-'25 per cent completed at the present time, it Is believed, and in two weeks more with Kood weather will be more than half done.

Not Satisfied With Award :0n Wages of the Royal Com- mission OLACE BAY, N.S., Sept. adian an. all-day discussion of the Royal commission report on' wages conditions the executive of the United Mine Workers last night 'unanimously de- cided against acceptance. They also decided to ask the locals to pass re- solutions authorizing- the executive to re-open negotiations with all.Nova Scotia operators. The attitude of the miners is that they will ask for tho a day to day workers and 24 cents a ton to contract have conditions remain as they were laid down under the Mc- Kinnon award which means that the chief stumbling block fn the way ot acceptance is that portion 'of the re- port recommending tho? adoption of the. partial advance and 'sliding scale scheme, suggested by the commis- sion as a means of tion ot coal. Briefly, Ihe situation is this: Ihe miners' executive rejected'the idea of the partial advance and sliding scale scheme, claiming' the right to open 'negotiations with the operators every tour months. They reject tho principle .of com- pnlfory arbitration, which, they hold, Is contained in tho idea of the body recommended by the.cpmmission to be set up between operators and men which the commission held would go far to settle miner disputes and ob- viate tho possibility of vacations and holidays.' Silby Barrett, international board member of the United Mine Workers, said last night that if the operators did not grant tho demands as outlined a strike in all Nova Scotia mines would result.

No Trace of Perpetrators YORK, Sept. Federal and police authorities today were admit- tedly as far as evsr from a solution ot the mystery surrounding the ei- plosion that spread death and destruc- tion in Wall Street last Thursday. Clues, at flrst apparently promising. have not developed and today Tirtual- ly the only trail being .followed was that supplied by Samuel B. Welling- ton, president of the West Indies Trading company, who told newspap- ermen he remembered seeing three suspicions looking men hastening from In front of. the United Stales assay office a few moments before the de- tonation knocked him unconscious. Wellington was asked to repeat his story today to tho police, and to Qhief Win. J. Flynn ot the department of; justice agents Investigating tho ex- plosion, as well to the September grand Jury. Investigators had not entirely given up pursuit ot the story by Joseph Meade of the Society for the Preven- tion of Cruelty to Animals, that he had seen the "death wagon" standing for more than an hour before the ei- iilosion in front ot the assay office. The Importance they attach to this story lies in the hope that through It they may be able to Identify the driver of the wagon, and In this way lead to the discovery of the person or persona responsible for the Hope ot developments from ques- tioning Edwin P.
