The subject is in two reels and as the whole of toe Selig eastern staff took part, together -^s'lth a small army of the most .skilfull and daring cowboys in the country, one will readily appreciate the excellence of the production. The whole subject is itreated in such a vividly roalistic manner that one's attention is held at fever pitch all through the araazuig program.

BUTCHER GIVES S VIEWS I ABAITOm THINKS IT WOULD COST $50,000 -PROBLEM A HARD ONE TO SOLVE Lethbrldge, April 12. Editor Lethbrldge I-Ierald: Sir;-I beg leave for space in your valuable paper to correct a wrong- impression created on the public miud through'misrepresentation on the abattoir question, and the attitude of the butchers on same. In Wednesday's paper I see it stated if Lethbrldge district is to regain the meat trade with British Columbia, lost through the enforcement of the government regulations calling for meat inspection, an abattoir must be constructed here, and about the only way this can be accomplished will be by the city making it a municipal institution. If such an abattoir la built the government will Immediately es-tabiisli a meat inspector here. Now sir, the butchers of Lethbrldge have not lost any trade with B, C. for the simple reason th6y never did any business with B. C, don't at the present time, nor intend to in the future, so there is no need here for an abattoir for Lethbridge butchers. As for the farmers in the district, they don't need to hkve it inspected as they are such an honorable hunch the government evidently thought they wouldn't do anything wrong. Vv. Fisher had an interview with the powers that be and he suggested that If the council wants to protect the health ot the community, erect an abattoir, and it such an abattoir is built, he will immediately furnish an inspectoi'. It seems strange to me that a Dominion inspector can oirerrule the provincial and municipal governments. I understand wo have two good and eflScient doctors attending to the health of the people and an energetic sanitary officer to attend to these things. However, it they are not sufhcient and we have to get another Inspector, it is up to our municipal council to engage one and not the Dominion government to appoint one over the hea,ds ot this province and city. To me it seems strange. Yoa also state, sir, that the butchers of the city have been agitating � the mayor to build an abattoir. No butcher ot this city has aisked the hiayor to build one. The majority,,6f ihp butchers waited on him to stop a hylaw being passed without our consent to make us go Into a certain private slaughter-house run by one man. Many of us have' slaughter houses of our own which would 'be of no use and -would be a great loss to us to have to go Into a public abattoir without compensation, but we stated if thy would build one' and hare inspection we were quite willing, to pay certain prices pQV bead which at presenit would amount to about 190 per week it all the meat-in Lethbrldge 'were, slaughtered' there. At present I reckon one-fourth ot the meat sold in- Lethbrldge is sent in dressed. Secretary. .Finley imade a statement that he knew several shippers in the s6uth who would send their stock here to be slaughtered and inspected and that the revenue from this source would-materially help to pay interest on the outlay. (I alw-ays gave Secretary Finley credit for having .a little sense until I saw that, statement.) 'We �Lethbrldge butchers might as well send our Btock to 'Calgary to be slaughtered and inspected as the shipper from Card-ston and Pincher Creek ,to send it up here and take it, back again. j X see also Dr. Fisher has suggested the woolen mills. 'Now I think that is about the worst location in or around Leth'brJdge. It has been ' a white-elephant long enough; don't To-day All-Feature Program, ' Including His Sergeaut^s Stripes Powerful Military Drama To-morrow A. Record-Breaklng "Bponcho" Thriller ,The Sinews of War In Two Parts Special Notice Owing to the Enormouc Crowds seeing th� The Dayton Flood Pictures In Calgary, they will not be hown here until Friday and Saturday turn it into a smelling one. The most natural and proper place lor one is out near the stock yatds and we say: "Mr. Mayor, when you have the money that is. the place, and we will all help you," but I think to put up an up-to-date plant to satisfy Lethbridge waoits for say ten or fifteen years to come, you will have to provide nearer fifty thousand dollars than the amounts that have been mentioned in your paper. Thanking you, Mr. Editor, in anticipaition, I remain, Yours truly, A BUTCHER. One Killed in Calgary Auto Accident Calgary, April 14,-Carl Zwioker, a flhaufteur, was killed and G, McCarthy was seriously injured when a five passenger moior crashed through a fence and down an emhankment on the Riverside boulevard, opposite the General hospital, shortly after three o'clock this morning.
