OTTAWA. Ont . Jan 19.—"The
chief glory of (*:inada is its winter!"!
exclaimed Fir Wilfrid Laurier one crisp
r.lght last week. The enthusiasm of
thousands who nightly cheer the
swiftest hockey in the world, the
bright eyes and rosy cheeks of tlio
and girls, men and women who
seek sport with ^ki and toboggans on
the slopes of the snow clad hills, all
indorse the premier's v rdict. although
immigration authorities and rail-
roads deplore excessive exploitation
f Canada as a land of ice and snow.
In Ottawa, which is one of the most
nthuslastic sporting cities
v.a, the cue for indulgence in winter
sports is given by the governor gen-
] eral himself. At Rldeau Hall there i.i;

Banking Board Appoints Special Committee With Power to Employ
Counsel to further Prosecute Noble Ccunty Bank Guar-
in Any Case Before Courts Merry War Is Promised.
Convened for the purpose of appropria-
ting more than a million dollars, and
Attorney General Charles W«t re-
vived another slap ypsterday from the
governor's office when at a meeting of
the state banking board it wis decided
(.> |jpt nt a special committee with
power to employ special counsel to carry
tho state's case, in relation to the
Noble county bank guarantee suit, up to
the supreme court.
The fact that the administration seems
determined to take from the attorney
general every power he has, as well as
± I many of his duties, has long been an
' open secret, so the action of the bank-
% Ing board did not come as any great
•j. surprise to the attorney general, who
•^'recognizes, it Is said, in the movement.
$ another effort on th part of the governor
■£ to destroy him politically.
•fc j The agreement tfo en^'doy special
f I counsel was reached yesterday after-
^ I noon. The committee appointed to make,
the selection consists of Governor Has-
kell and State Auditor Trnpp.
The Noble bank suit Is one which was
so that Countess Grey's "at home'
cards, with "skating and toboggan-
ing" written in the corner, are eagerly
awaited each winter.

There promises to be a merry war
between the governor and the attorney
general during the sessions of the legis

to take a hand.

An effort was made by members of
the democratic side of tho legislature
to hold caucuses by both branches of
tho legislature, but the effort was a
signal failure owing to the fact that
many members refused to enter :i
caucus until they knew what they had
•en called together for.
From all indications those who re-
fused to go into the caucus of the
house will not be easily led by the fol-
lowers of the governor supporting
blindly any measure which he may
offer, and it is understood that there
will be no less than twenty subjects
brought to the attention of the legis-
lature by the governor.
Shortly before 8 o'clock last even-
ing it was announced that the demo-
cratic members of the house would
meet In the assembly room of Ihe
