Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 21, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta VOLUME VI. TEJJ PAGES Lethbrid^e, Alberta. Monday, April 21, 1913 PRICE-FIVE CENTS Number 110 1 ( Had Workecl Pass Towns for Hundreds in Stock Subscrip-' tions for Trust Company Coleman, AjJri) 20. - A bunch ol company promoters, who worked Coleman and other tdwns of the Pass, are in the toils of the Provincial Police at Fetnio, B. C, and will, in all probability, be Ijrought ,to Alberta when the British 'Columbia authorities get through with jtheni. Early in February E. Williams and 'James Davidson, claiming Vancouver, B. C, as their home, arrived in Coleman ostensibly to 'organize a Trust company. Shortly after the two men wcL'e joined by a third, Fred V. Peacock, of Vancouver, and the trio immediately got busy selling stock in the propo.sed Trust company. Davidson was the salesman, and the other two boosters for the project, which bore the high-sounding name of Anglo-Canadian Savings & Trust Company, Ltd. Olhce room was secured'from the Coleman Realty company, bankmg counter and fixtures installed and the grafters advertised they would open a branch at Coleman immediately, 'or as soon as a charter, applied for, could be secured. Being plausible talkeis- and of fairly good appearance the fellows made a rich and in adjacent towns. One of the baits used to dispose of stock in the concern was a guarantee to pay 20 pet cent, interest on all money invested in stock at the end of '12 months, and to buy back the stock from any dissatisfied HtoclHiolders at an increase of 50 per cent. They ^Iko advertised that they would pay i per, cent, mtsrest on checking accounts. Thi8, looked : pood to many people, Two Miners Were Crushed To Death Word comes from Pincher Creek today that an accident in the mine at Beaver Creek on Saturday afternoon resulted in the instantaneous death of two miners. Very few details of the accident can be learned other, than that the two men were working in the usual way when a fall of rock came unexpectedly, pinning them under and crushing and smothering them to death. The accident happened at two o'clock.' Inspector of Mines F. Aspinall has been notified and left this atte);rioDn to hold an inguest tomorrow. The mine is owned by the Western Coal and Coke Co. The miners were Allen McDonald and Patrick Ryan. .

However, the Experimental Farm boasts Uva^ record today. Wheat, sown on April 4, has made its appearance, and 'Mr. Fairfield is therefore very optimistic for the coming season,, which has every appearance of being normal in every way. . Seeding all over Southern Alberta is progiressing very iavor-ably. Thousands of acres which were prepared last fall are al- �ready seeded- Althougli it is not generally thought that the acreage under c^op in Southern Al- , berta 'this year will bo larger than last, the conditions, under which the seed is being put in the ground are hettpr, and the  result should he correspondingly better.

Cardston, Spring Coulee and 'Kimball districts. He hopes for a good crop this year, predicting as, a, result that the farmers would then use tlie money, not to 'buyifmore land, but to take up mixed farming. -* Medicine Hat, Aprils 21.-'With: fn,ll, .returna in, Hon.
