"And I ventured to tell the people of the Mother Country that, if I un- .derstood the spirit of Canadian peo- ple aright, Canada did not propose to be an adjunct even of the British Empire, "And, speaking at a great .many places, before parliamentarians, be- fore the Royal Colonial Institute, th London Chamber of Commerce, an before an audience of five thousan people at Glasgow, no statement.th_ T made was more warmly received o f more 'enthusiastically applauded tha the statement that with co-operatio iu Imperial defence, must also com a certain voice with Canada in se tliug the' issues of peace and war."

After refer ring to September 21 last, he said lhat recent events had justified even argument used in the last election against the reciprocity pact. Theii I'riends of the Opposition were stil saying that there was a strong feel ing developing in Canada in favor of reciprocity. They made this claim with particular reference to the West- em country, and supported their ar- gument with a reference to the re- cent election, which took place in Saskatchewan. "Lot me tell said Hon. Mr. forcibly, "as a "Western man, acquainted with Western conditions, mid responsible to the Western peo- ple, that I deny the existence of any sentiment that is either real or hon- est." The lion, minister said that the ef- forts of tho Liberal press were now directed toward exciting race, relig- ions, class and language contentions, and contrasted that with "the tradi- tional policy of the Conservative party, so 'well carried on by the pre- sent Premier, to place at all times and under all circumstances, the bos interests of the country before those of party."

Chie< L- cense Inspector Forster detailed this particular 'branch of Stampede work to Provincial Detective Hodoldns, wjii employed half-a-dozen men to assis him, two of them Indians and two half-breeds. The result of the .work 'was that there were fourteen con victions of Indians for imbibing too freely, and two convictions of half- breeds for supplying liquor to In- dians. Iu both the latter offences thefa were prison terras of three months inflicted. Sixteen offences among a large num her of Indians, under such circum- stances, does not appear to he an un- reasonably large proportion, and would stand favorable comparison with 'the number of similar offences among the white section of Calgary's population during Stampede week. It is, in fact, an outstanding com- ami con- the life-work and de- votion of Rev. John McDougall, Rev. Archdeacon Timms. Rev. Father La- combe and others, who have labored among the Western Canadian Indians for many years. There are always some men who so far neglect their duty to their neighbor, who for the purpose? of gain and greed, will en- deavor lo debase themselves and de- bauch tho Indians, and it was this class that was particularly watched by the Liquor License Department men during Stampede week, and tho energy of these men and their Indian "specials'" had no doubt much to do With minimizing this particular class of lawlessness. During the Stampede, in addition to this work, officers of the License De- partment obtained convictions against one man for running a gambling game on the exhibition grounds, and againpt two negroes, each charged with sell- ing liquor without a license. Fines of 5100 were inflicted in each of these three cases. WOULD REDUCE NUMBER YARDS SENSIBLE BUSINESS MOVE IS RE- PORTED FROM'WARNER- STATION AGENT RE- SIGNS RESIGNED AS PATRIOTS Constantinople.
