Ruddick, dominion dairy and eold storage commlasionsr, at th Muedonald thl morning, "but the fact remains that more and more farmer are going Into dairying Intensively, wtth In-creaaed prosperity to themselves and to the country." In thla way did Mr. Ruddick dispose of th many times repeated complaint that fodder price were going so high that th producer of dairy product! would have to go out of business.

FOR FULL CAUCUS LI Government Policy on Proposed Amendments Are Not Yet Outlined What to do with the liquor law and just what changes to make in its methods of enforcement Is the question that is now occupying the attention of the Liberal members of legislature, in caucus assembled. Most of the Ather questions of policy that the government wanted to talk over with its supporters have been threshed out, but the liquor amendments still remain, awaiting decision.

The party caucus has been adjourned from Friday night to a date this week as early as a full attendance of the members can be arranged, but so far the Illness of several of the members has prevented such a meeting. Among the absentees from this cause have been J. McNaughton, the party whip; Hon. G. P.

Smith, who has returned from Calgary, but is still feeling the effects of his recent Illness; S. O. Tobln, who Is returning from California, and Turgeon, who was summoned home by illness in his family. According to Premier Stewart, there is practical unanimity among the members as to the necessity of taking some definite action on the liquor question, but there is a con siderable variance ot opinion as to what that action should be. The principle is admitted, but tha matter of methods Is so far in dispute.

The premier hope, however, that a defi nite pn'Ucy will be agreed upon with the combined effort and wisdom of the government members and that an announcement to that effect, outlin-I ing a proposed line of action fr the lecisljture. will be possible after an-i other sitting of the caucus.

FARMER NEAR WEISS WAS DETERMINED TO COMMIT SUICIDE Rope Broke First Time But a Second Attempt, Waa Successful Evincing a determination to commit suicide, which would brook no denial, Leon Kawalchuk, a farmer residing four miles north of Weisg, near Fedorah, was successful In his second attempt to lake hl life.

The parents and neighbors are unable to ascribe any reason for the rash act. Coroner Dr. Mooncy and Constable Stad visited Kawalchuk's farm, and after viewing the body and hearing the circumstances of the case decided that an 'nquest was unnecessary.

Rancher from Grande Prairie la Not the Man Wanted for Murder The euapiclon of being the murderer of two brothers In the Mtale of Oregon some fifteen years ago, which for a time gathered darkly around the bend of Angus McBaln, was definitely dispelled on Monday morning when Sheriff Reinhardt of Wallowa county, arrived In Kdmonton. A vtsit of a few minutes' duration to the provincial police guiird room and a glinipsa of the suspected man was sufficient to satisfy the sjierlft that the wrong man had been arrested.

Mcllaln was Immediately released from custody and resumes his role of private cltl-isen and respected rancher of the (Irande Prairie district. The sheriff returns to Oregon empty handed with the fifteen year old murdor mystery still unsolved. A most remarkable resemblance In facial characteristics and general ap-! pearance was responsible for Mc-i Bain's arrest, which was effected at Spirit River by Constable Powell Just as McBaln was about to board the train for Edmonton. The A P.P. constable brought his man along to Edmonton and lodged him In the local cells to await the arrival of the sheriff from Oregon.

That dignitary reached Edmonton on Monday morning's train, together with another man brought along for the purpose of Identification. When confronted with the suspected man they were not at first at all sure, but reference to the criminal Identification card, which they had brought with them, quickly exonerated Mclialn of alt suspicion. Sheriff Reinhardt states that the correct name of the man wanted for the crime committee In 1905 Is James H. McBaln. The murder took place in Wallowa county, Oregon, when two brother name Troue were shot down in cold blood.

The murderer Immediately decamped, and although the law ho camped relentlessly on his trail ever since, practically all trace has been lost. The description of McBaln as wired to the Wallowa sheriff tallied so closely with the wanted man that the authorities were misled and consequently Reinhardt made the long trip to Kdmonton. A personal inspection showed that the murderer Is about two inches shorter than the Grande Prairie rancher. The latter also has an excellent crop of hair, while the other MtRain was slightly bald-headed when last seen. Angus McUaln's wife and seven children, who are at present In Edmonton, although confident of Mc-Bain's innocence all the time, were naturally overjoyed at his release from custody.

This equipment may be set up on the city's property near the intersection of the C.N K. tracks and 95th street, where the city stables are.

The plant was bought from Calgary in 1014 at a cost of $20,000. It has not been used In recent years, the city making an arrangement with the Crown paving company to do he street maintenance work. That firm received 1500 a month. Now It Is reported thai the company will not be prepared to do this work, so It Is up to the city to resurrect the old plant. Owing to the central location, the city engineer favors taking th plant from where It now Is on 121st street to OMh street.

The cost of this change le estimated at $4,000, Each year tho city does about J5.000 Of maintenance work on roadway paving. It Is not expected that that amount will be exceeded this year. TTO HELP INDUSTRIES IS Industrial Congress Will Be Held In Edmonton Next Summer A civic grant of $2000 for the Alberta Industrial association's con- greses here this year. Is recommended to council by the finance committee. At the last meeting Mayor Brown Medicine Hat showed the great advantages the city would derive from the fact that the main sessions were to be held here, and the need of financial assistance.

The public school board is applying for an advance of $58,000 to meet February salaries which are due for payment next week. This allowance will be on the basis of the December schedule, as the trustees have not been able to yet review increases and pare down where that is possible. When council meets on Monday evening, they will receive the report of the commissioners asking for a policy to be laid down on the power situation. There is a full grist of communication and committee reports, all lending color to the belief that the aldermen have a long session ahead. MRS.
