Ml IMPOSED FINE ON EDITOR STANLEY Fernie Editor Has To Pay Fine Or Go To Jail Vancouver, B. C., April judges and courts are open to criti- cism, but no person is at liberty to impute motives "to a judge and then hope to escape the consequences of his remarks by showing that -he, the writer, wrote under a sense of being injured or without due consideration of thought." So said the full court to Editor Stanley of the iFemie Led er, adjudging him guilty of contempt of court and imposed a fine af or imprisonment until paid, and de- manding a complete withdrawal of the recent attack upon his honor Judge Wilson 1'or the publication of which the editor admitted -he had no reasonable facts. Will Open New Yards MONEY IN THIS COW St. Thomas, April E. Rob- inson, of the Ontario Agricultural College, Guelph, has completed a seven-day official test of a pure-bred Holstein heifer, aged two years ten months, owned by David Caughell, of Yarmouth Centre. The heifer gave 434 pounds of milk in seven days, and made over twenty pounds of but- ter. This is the largest butter record ever made in Canada from a heifer two. years and ten months or under.

Lethbridge Won Practice Match Intelligence comes from Minneapo- lis, the city in which the Lethbridge baseball team is making its head- quarters at the present time, saying that- Jack Corrigan's Lethbridge team of the Western Canada League clash- ed last week with the crack Conrad Independent professionals of St. .Paul, and beat them 5 to 3.

GUN UNDER WALK TO FOOL POLICE Revolver Found Near Kin- radeHome In Ham- Haniilton, Oni., April thirty- two calibre revolver was found this morning ur.der a slate walk leading to the residence of Mrs. Abbot, Her- kimer street, two aoors west of the Kinrade home, by two men going to work. The general impression- is that the revolver is not the one which was used to murder Ethel but it was placed under a walk recently as a huge hoax on police and public- Last night at one btthe local theatres Miss Eva Fay, celebrated thauma- turgist announced that a revolver would be found under the sidewalk on Herkimer St. near the Kinrade resi- dence. There was not a speck of dust on the -weapon, showing that the revolver had been placed there recently. H. N. Sereth, president of the South Alberta Lumber Company, spent the past two days in the city. What he thinks of Southern Alberta and the prospects of the lumber business in this district is shown by the fact that as a result of his visit the com- pany will open up a number of new yards in the rising towns around Lethbridge. Mr. Sereth was amazed at the way Lethbridge is growing and in conference with the manager of the company, P. McMurphy, de- cided to erect another large shed to accommodate both rough and finish- ed lumber. The company have al- ways carried in stock about a mil- lion and a half feet and the in- creased accommodation the stock will be. greatly added to. New sheds and offices have been put up at the New Dayton and Ma- grath yards. The demand for lumber from these points is much greater than was anticipated but the com- pany are striving to supply their customers at these points with a com- plete and wide stock. Mr. Sereth is heavily interested in lumber yards throughout Alberta and his decision to expand operations in. this district is another evidence of the confidence of business men in its future. DOBBIN DOES NOTHAVETO PAY Important Decision In Regard To Real Es- state Licenses The charge laid. by Chief of Police Gillespie against W. R.

The car will be large enough for three or four persons and is being built for the benefit of any who find walking upstairs a labor. There are many steps to climb from the en- trance on Main street to 4he auditor-1 ium and requests have been made for! an elevator. Monday, with C. F. P. Conybeare, K. C., city solicitor for the prosecu- tion and W. .C. Simmons for the de- fence. Before evidnce was taken Mr. Simmons made several objections to the. validity of the amended by-law on licenses. Five of these were over- ruled but the sixth in which he said that section 19 -of the said principal by-law is bad inasmuch as it is an il- legal restraint upon trade in attempt- Ing to discriminate against real es- tate agents in the matter of a part- nership license. E. A. Sharman of the firm -of Dobbin Co., was the only witness and his evidence was merely formal. In his judgment Magistrate Mac- dougall found there is evidence that, E. Dobbin did carry on the busi- ness of real estate agent without hav- ing obtained license therefor, which under circumstances other than those of this case would be contrary to the by-law. In dealing with the sixth objection raised by Mr. Simmons and which decided the case, the magistrate said "As I am at present advised, the gist of this objection is fatal and on these grounds The power given" the Council, under their charter, .title 21, to make by-laws 'for the issue of li- cense and payment of license fees in respect- of any business' cannoi be interpreted to empower that body to make the discriminatory exception in the. case of real estate agents, ty chapman or transient traders men- tioned in section 19 of the by-law in question. The form in which licenses are exacted of real estate agents, etc., by said section 19 is, in my opinion, ultra vires the Council. .It is to be noted the authority given is as to a business rather than to persons. Mr. Conybeare in his argument drew my attention to the manner in which the by-law exacts a graduated license fee from persons carrying on the busi- ness of billiard or pool table keepers.. draymen stable keepers, etc., and T ned not point out that a like scale could equally (if permissable under said act of incorporation, of which T express no opinion) be applied to the licensing of the business of real esr tate agents having more than one of such apents associated or employed ed prices since that date.
