Mayor Lavigouor stated that he �went to the scene of the trouble Thursday night, found that the trouble had subsided and returned home, confident that the whole thing was quieted, but at 1 a.m., Captain 13es-rochers of the military police, telephoned him that Uelanger had been killed by the mob. Mayor Lavigeuer said he understood the trouble had been brought about by the public sentiment that had grievances against Uelanger and Evmiturel, two Federal "spotters" for the manner in which they treated men alleged to be absentees.

Passing the corner of Palace and St. Johns Streets I saw a group of disturbers. 1 went to General Landry's office where we remained half an hour. Jn the meantime the mob had smashed the windows of The Chronicle and L'Evenment. i there asked General Landry to call the militia but he said to do this he would have to obtain authority in writing from the mayor and two justices of the peace. After hunting up a justice of the peace, who signed the papers, i returned to General' Landry who told me that the troops were at my disposal and that to get them, I had only to read the Riot Act." > The mayor then related the events of Sunday night, the breaking into Brousaeau'a and Mavtineau's hardware stores, and Armaud Lavergne's intervention.

Lavergne called on him reporting the agreement he had made witli Colonel Muchin who-was representing (he department of justice at Ottawa and added that if Uie Military were kept from going to St. Roch there would be no trouble.

WATER RATES .___tx Lothhrldge, .April 7, lit IS. To Hie l-'dilor Herald: � Dear Sir.- May I ask for a. Utile space in your paper to air what i consider a big grievance sonic of (he citizens of Lethbridge have al (lie present time. Some little time hack our worthy commissioners suggested raising the wind by increasing the price of the I electric light., bill as some of the con-{ sinners in a large way kicked and threatened a. boycott that idea was dropped. Said commissioners then turned their attention lo the water, and ile-i rided to raise (lie price of that eom-J modlty. (hey considering they had the upper baud there as they could cut. it off it the price is not paid. They decided, if 1 mistake no), lo raise the price UU per cent. Very good, so far, but why do they discriminate lad ween people who have if laid on from (bo main, and those who are not connecled Willi the main, because, unfortunately for them, vthe commissioner* do not see their way to spend the money necessary to lay the main to the said consumers' -houses. Tile 20 per cent, holds good for people connected with the water main, but the poor unfortunates not so connected are told they must pay an extra GOc per month on what they have been paying, viz., $1.00, thus making a round two dollars per month for water, while the 20 per cent, increase would" bring it to $1.80 for which sum the commissioners kindly supply us with water to the amount of one barrel filled three times per week, thus limiting us very quantity we may For tills large qtians i small sum o! money count when we pay monthly as we have to pay, it, while the householder on the main litis an unlimited supply and also gels a discount on his money when he pays a' the end >>!' each quarter. I would like to ask why the two systems of payment? We all n-,e uatcr whether served from the main or from Ihe water carl into our one barrel. Why arc we not. all on tin; same basis ol' payment---quarterly- so that we might all gel lIn- benefit of the. discount, even though one is limited i;i (lie amount used, I think it is kind of adding' insult I" injury. If (he sum of $,fi,0(IU.(IO spent a lillle nine hack on a iliist-eollecting motor line'.- ii;id been spont in laying (he water main to some of the nouses in the. immediate vic i11- I Hy of Ihe city, i think the cmnmis- I sioners would have done move good I for those living here -already and would have helped to draw more peo-I pie Into (lie district., a.: the want of water will only help to drive away j rather than lir.'tw besides encourairin;t ' ! people to liu'ld, as they would prefm � I lo build on the water line rather than without, and as a. citizen of nine years; standing. I think the sura ol *5.'.>U'.l.nn � 'for a dust-collecting motor (ruck was ; a waste of money in these days when i v.-ft are. told by the same people. Hint 1 v. e must, economize.
