Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 9, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta t ?AGE TEN1 TlTC LETHBRIDGE l)A?t.Y HERALD TUESDAY, APRIL 9, 1918 NEW ERA DAWNS FOR HOLY LAND First Easter Since British Occupation Significant of ' Era of Peace London. April 9.-Jerusalem's first Easter since the British occupation �was celebrated with quiet solemnity, nays Reuter's'correspondent in 'the Holy City. The usual swarms of pilgrims who throng Jerusalem at this teason were missing but their place was taken to some extent by khaki clad soldiers who participated in services of both the Protestant and Catholic churches. "Pontifical Mass," the correspondent adds, "was observed in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and was attended by the governor of Jerusalem and numerous officers, including a representative of the French government. The Passover coincided with our, festival and was celebrated with a new meaning of joy to the Jews in the new occupied territory there. "Although occupation only dates four months back, the very atmosphere of this region seemed to have undergone a change. Distress has vanished and sickness and fears no longer are at the thresholds of the 1UI IE Say it Will Not Be Fair To Farmers To Comply With Factory Act MADE CANADA MM Of ITS UHli Per m&klng Par waehlfiff tfleiiea. �tf JIalnftetIn* Per remevin* eflwry ototrao-Mem fr*m araln ptpm and sink*.

C.G OLANDER 524 THIRTEENTH STREET NORTH Rumors that the mounted police ! may be removed from the west and ' used for special military duty have j been revived by statements recently i at Ottawa and Edmonton and members of "K" division are on the qui-vive tor any move that may be ordered. The fact that the cavalry, has been. used to good advantage on the western front has stirred up hope in their breasts, and they would not be surprised to get orders for special cavalry training any day. The possibility that they may be moved has also been the subject of discussion on the part of the city's old-timers. Robert Sage of the treasurer's department at the city hall, and one of . the oldest old-timers in the city, told the Herald this morning that several years ago there was talk at one time of removing "K" division to Macleod and closing up the barracks here. At that time a largely | signed petition of citizens was sent to Ottawa asking that, in the event of the barracks here being abandoned, the four city blocks on which they stand should be turned over to the city. He states that the government replied favorably to the suggestion at i that time, and thinks that, if the ! mountles should be sent abroad for ! military purposes during this war, j the citizens should approach the government to see that the barracks land should be handed over to the city. For Military Hospital The suggestion is also made that, if '%" division is called out, the land and Buildings should be set aside for military hospital purposes. It is known that it has been suggested to the military hospitals commission. Lethbridge has been passed up by the military hospitals authorities, and'as men are now returning to Alberta at the rate of 350 per month, it is felt that those from the south should be given attention in the central city of the south instead of being sent to Calgary and Edmonton and other places tar removed from their* families. Definite word as to the fate of the famous mounted police will therefore be awaited eagerly by Lethbridge citizens. ASSISTANT TO BAKER Washington, April 9.-The nomination of E. R. Stettinius of New York, as assistant secretary of war, was confirmed late yesterday by the senate. The nomination of F. P. Keppel for a similar position went over temporarily, although it is said tiiat there was no objection to his confirmation. PROMOTION BY SELECTION London, April 9.-King George has signed a Royal warrant providing that promotions to the rank of general in the British army shall be by selection instead of by seniority.

"The Busy Store" E, Travers, April 5.-The windstorm on the afternoon of Easter Sunday made a general mixup of the Pioneer Lumber yard at this place, many pieces being blown across the street and through the windows of the stores opposite. We are pleased to learn that the C.P.R. intends to build a new station house at Travers this summer. It Is surely needed. Mr. Mitchell and family of Lomond have moved here to take charge of the large new Ford garage owned by Mr. TesJky. Sergeant Harry Chapman has returned after three years' service in [the war and is going to try farming on his homestead. He has built a new house this spring and is now unloading a car of woven wire fence material with which to fence his farm. Price of Land. The price of land seems to be an interesting topic around here, although there are but few who ^ish to sell. We understand that Mr. Keen sold his half section tor $10,000 and we hear that 11. Charter bought a half section, known as the Pelcher farm, for $10,000. Some hold the price at $50 per acre and do not care spire can be seen for many miles. Several fine new houses have been built on the farms around here within the last year, all equipped with latest modern Improvements, which speaks well for the country. Mr. and Mrs. P. J. McCann left for Calgary last week to remain for a short tJme. Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Elliot are happy over the arrival of a fine baby boy who came to them March 23rd. Miss Turner, our milliner and Pur-cell's most efficient lady clerk, has been very sick with an ajtack of "Grippe," which took her off duty for several days. We are glad to see her back at work again. Mr. Bradley, who was teller in the Standard bank of this place last year, is here on a visit to his many friends. Why not agitate the question of local telephones? We need them badly and should have them. The extra amount of gasoline we use running around with our motors to learn the news would pay for the telephone system in the country.
