AURIER'S FATE STAKE Whether Present Prime Minister Shall Continue Pn Office or Be Supplanted by "t. L. Borden, Opposition Leader, Depends Upon Election to Be Held Within Six Weeks by Canadians. Ottawa, Ont., Aug. 6.-Readjustment of political Ilans and preparation for tihe campaign throughout the dominion over recilprocity with the United States Lave characterized the week just past. The extent of the.surprise occasioned by the dissolutloon of parliament is in dicatied by the tact that few members were ready to leave for their conetltu Snceles to seek re-election and the last gr.ups are now leaving Ottawa . Meanwhile tons of printed matter, have been mailed, the franking priv Ilege having been extended one week. Little election machinery is in running order, the contest having been precipi tated a year before its normal time. Nominating conventions, however, are scheduled and the naming of candl dates will be completed in a month. Laurier's Fate. It id the evident purpose of the op ponents of reciprocity to divert atten tion from it as much as possible. But the government will insist that in the election six weeks from now every bal lot shall be morally a decision wheth er there shall be reciprocity with the United States. On so deciding the peo pile will determine whether Sir Wilfrid Laurier shall continue to be .prime minister or whether he shall be re placed by R. L. Borden, the opposition leader. Prominent members of the govern ment express increased confidence that the new parliament to be opened in October by the new governor gen eral, the Duke of Connaught, will make its initial act the ratification of the reciprocity agreement. No opposi tion asserts that the crest of a tidal wave of anti-reciprocity sentiment has been sighted and that the conserva tive and French nationalist majority In the new parliament will kill the pact. Parliament has a membership of 221. Today 188 are government support ere. Taft's Part. President Taft is almost as great a personality as Sir Wilfrld Laurier in the present campaign, and it is safe to say that his utterances on red procity will be more often quoted throughout the provinces the coming weeks than those of Sir Wilfrid or Finance Minister Fielding. Already extensive use of them has been made by both sides In parliament. The op position will cover several acres of •billboards with them. The views of Champ Clark and other American champions of reciprocity also will figure largely in the speech making. as will the opinions of British statesmen relative to the effect reci procity would have on British tariff reform and imperial preference . Despite assertions to the contrary, the annexation bogey is hardly alive. But the opposition will probably re new Its efforts to makb use of it. FARMER MURDERED. Oklaloma City, Aug. 6.-B. W.

Washington, Aug. 6.-Reverently and with a brief invocation in Japanese, ;: Admiral Count Togo placed a wreath of roses on the tomb of Washington at Mount Vernon today. A group of a dozen watched the admiral enter the mausoleum and stand silntly at sa lute. He spoke softly, bu audibly, for a moment and then set down the wreath. Emerging from the tomb, 'the solem nity of the occasion was t.oken by the admiral himself, who smiled as he saw confronting him a battery of cameras. "That's the only way we'll ever shoot at you, I guess," remarked Rear Ad. miral Wainwright, amid laughter. As the guest of the nation, Ad imlral Togo's trip from the city to i Mount Vernon was made on the presi dent's yacht, the Mayflower. After the ceremony at ,the tomb the party strolled through the picturesque Washington estate to the mansion in which the nation's first president lived and tiled. He bowed and saluted. He paused before Wash ington's sword and carefully read the Inscription. One of the party pointed out the wine and liquor Oase which once figured in the hospitality of Mount Vernon.

M. FOWLER Conming as a comnplete sur'prise and being news that will be received with c 'much regret is the announcement that '1uperlntendcnt M. M. Fowler of the Rocky Mountain division of the North erit pacific railway has resigned from the service of tile company and with hls family will leave Missoula In a few days. This announcement was con 'firmed by Mlr. ,owler himself yester day when he slated that a combination of circumstances made his action seem best at this time. Mr. Fow', r's resigna tion comes at the end of a period of 24 years continuous service with the Northern Pacific. Flor the past two years he has made Missoula his head quarters, while in charge of the Rocky 'mountain division. He and his family have made many warm friends In the Garden city who will be sincerely sorry to hear of their prospective departure, and all along the line of the local di vision, where the superintendent is held in high respect and esteem, the news of his resignation will be re ceived with anything but pleasure. A I competent official and a most affable, gentleman, Mr. Fowler is universally liked everywhere he was known and his loss will be keenly felt both in the social elrcle of Missoula and among the lmen of his division, . Long Service. M. M. Fowler's railroad career dates back to. the year 1874 when he com menced work as an operator for the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway company under Ht. it. Williams, now president of the Puget Sound road, From thist position, where his first job 'was at Newport, eight miles below St. Paul, he worked lip Jo be chief dis patcher, holding this position until 1887 when he left the service of the Mil waukee for the Northern Pacific. He served as a dispatcher at Brain ard and then went to Minneapolis in ,the same capacity, advancing step by Istýep through the stages of chief dis patcher and assistant superintendent to ,superintendent of the Ht. Paul division, He was at the head of this division for I t number of years when, owing to It :rearrangement of the operating forus, the was made trainmaster for a period. t It was from this posltion that Mr. Fowler was assigned the charge of the Rocky Mountain division two years ago, he having arrived here Kept. 9, 1909. He came without the blowing of trumpets to assumne the place that had KIDNAPERS PINCHED FOR MAKING 'WAY b WITH GROOM it d DALE WILLIAMS MARRIES INDIAN HEIRE8SS AND IS GIVEN d WILD RIDE. Caney, Wan., Aug. 6.-Mlxteen proml | nent young men of c'uney were arrested L. today on a charge of kidnaping Dale ,h Williams, who was married yesterday m to Pauline Canary, hllo tas a nmonthlly income of $2,000. lier uicomo is de ' rived from the Ct'nr;ly oil pool, which is loca0ed on her land allotment in the former Cherokee nation, three miles ll south of here. le Among the young men arrested are ly two brothers of the bride. Their sister at eused the arrest of the entire party. The kidnaping party took the bride groom from the holrne of his parents at 11 o'clock last night and gave him a wild motor car ride across the country, bringing himn )hons at :3 o'clock this morning with hi. liotlh's badly tor1n. e- The city nlarseial had been notittied be by the bride, but hlis frantic efforts to c- stop the speeding moturists were in vain, just ex en made vacant iy the transfer of Superintendent Rapelje. The first year of his work here was one of the most strenuous in the dvllalon's his tory, but it has always been handled by the superintendent in a tnapner which was admired and praised' by railway men. His working organism tion is considered splendid and the fullest co-operation of his employes was due in no small measure to his own personality and methods of fair dealing. These same characteristics have', mde Mr. Fowler extremely pop ular with the shllipers of him road and they will share In the general regret at the announcement of his Intended departure. Whin seen by a Mlssoullan reporter yesterday and questioned concerning the report of his resignation, Mr. Pow tar said: "Yes. It is true that I have resigned my iposltlon with the company and Bx iect to leave Missoula just as soon as I am relieved. I am not sure yet who is to be the new superintendent of this division, hut w ill probably recwvye some official word within a week and the cilangl will probably be made within the niex 10 days. "In many ways I regret to leave Mis soula for the relations of both myself and my family with Missoula people have t'een very pleasant and in going we must leave behind cheriphed friends. However, the clrcumstances at this time made my decision seem best. We have no definite plans to announce as yet. It has been a num her of )years since I have had what may be termed a real vacation . and just as soon as possible after being re lieved W wwill leave for a trip to the coast. After that our plans are unde. cided," Tihe l.ast that can be said of the woroc of I;uperlntendent Fowler on the Iticky Mountain division, one of the nmost difficult to manage on the whole systemr, is that he will turn It over to his successor In as fine a condition as lit has ever enjoyed since the first through train from the eeat passed over the li.ne in the early '80's.

BOTH SES OEDWENT City Railway Company and Carmen's Union Obey Mandate of Judge Law. rence de Graff of Distriot Court and Conductore and Motormen Return to Their Original Positions. Des Moines, Aug. 8.-Promptly at S o'clock this afternoon street car trat tic was resumed in Des Mlnea and the 48-hour strike which began at 1 o'clock Baturday morning was termt. nated. For the first time In the hisl tory of the country the order of a court has put an end to what gave every Indication of becoming a bitter labor struggle. The mandate lasued by Judge Law rence de Graff of the distrtict court last night was promptly obeyed by the Dee Moines City Railway company and the carmen's union, and, while there is ample prospeot of a fight later in the courts, an injuanctlon has restored temporarily, at eat. nearly l O con ductors and motormen to their otelinal positions. By d o'clock traffic had al. most resumed its normal condition. New Method. That a new method of handllng labor dlfficulties has .been discoveed was the statement of N. T. Guernesey, at. torney for the street car company, to night, following the acquleqoenoo of the company in Judg De D Graffs or der. He said his clients were not sat Isfleld that the court was wtthin its jurisdiction n issluung the mandatory injunction, but that for the present -they were willing to abide by it, leav i Ing to a later date the trial of the case on its merits. Pred ay, tnternational. board mem. I ber of the Amalamated Assooation of Street and ileotrt Employel of Amler I ce, who conducted the ,briet striker was much pleased with the turn of a events tonight. He said that while the Smembers of the executve committee I had preferred that the strike continu a until a new agreement wap signed, the intervention f the court was aocept. able because it gave to the union ex. aotly what it had aske. 'This was the reinstatement of Conductor Platt. whose recent discharge without an la vestigation led to the trouble and the order that arbitration must deolde whether he Is to remain with the come Spanty. The suit in equity whiobh terminated t the strike was brought by the oity of Des Moines, upon the order of the otl* council late last nllht. A bearing to determine whether the injunction shall habe made permanent probably will be had tomorrow. Legal Phase. o N. T.
