Canadian Companies to Recuperate from Pernio Losses. Winnipeg, Man., Aug. 12. Word was received here this afternoon that the Canadian Fire Underwriters' asso. elation today in Toronto considered seriously the situation arising out of the $3,000,000 losses sustained at the Fernle fire, and Increased rates were decided upon. Partly for this rea son and partly because the association regarded existing rates on grain in elevators In the western provinces too low, It was decided to Increase the rates 33 per cent on that class of Insurance, to become effective Imme diately on all new policies written. The present rate on this business Is 99 cents, and the new rate will be 11.32. The report of the Increase In grain and elevator fire Insurance rates in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Al berta was received here with conster nation. In local insurance circles it Is ex plained that adjusters from Toronto and Montreal, Seattle and Vancouver have gone to Fernle to adjust losses. Much of this loss will fall on Pacific coast companies. They too will reap part of the increased premiums from he grain and elevator service In the " jclflc provinces, due to the new jrder of things.

Mill SERVICE PHCITf AGENT C. J. Blanchard of Washington, D. C, the "newspaper .man" or publicity agent of the reclamation department, arrived last evening at Hermlston to secure information in regard to the Umatilla Irrigation project for pub lication in the reports of the recla mation bureau. Mr. Blanchord follows the hew pro jects and writes them up for press notices, and his specialty Is to give exact descriptions of the progress of work.' climatic conditions, agricultu ral opportunities and other features of the projects which might be of Interest to the public. Mr. Blanchard Is located in Wash- ngton, D. C, and la a son-in-law of Captain J. H. Alexander, special agent of the Interior department, who was formerly In this city. In gathering data for the Umatilla project, Mr. Blanchard finds a num. ber of unique features for publicity. He finds a cmpleted Irrigation project situated on a main line of railroad within 200 miles of one of the best markets In the country and surround ed by a fine settlement on all sides. Excepting the Idaho projects, most of .the reclamation projects are far In the interior, long distances from railroads, still .further from good mar kets and- but few of them have any old settlements like the Butter creek country adjacent. So he will have some entirely new features to chron icle concerning the Umatilla pro ject, and his descriptions and pres matter will be of especial Interest to homeseekers. He will remain at Hermlston sev eral days this week, after which he will go to the Tleton project, In Wash ington, and then to Klamath, in Southern Oregon.
