Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 28, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta Herald VOL. II. TO TRAIN MEN ON OUR SHIPS In Order That Canada Would Be Protected On the Seas LETHBRIDQE, ALBERTA, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 21, 1909. Ottawa, senate held the centre of the stage today with a debate on the motion of the Hon U. W. Ross to the effect that Liberal provision should at once be made for the instruction of Canadian mariners in seamanship and navigation with a view to the development of the ship- ping interests of Canada, and if need be the protection of Canada's com- merce in coast waters and on the high.seas. He was glad to see that both sides were agreed on the ques- tion of naval defence during- the re- cent discussion in the House of Com- mons, and it was gratifying to note >that the British press approved of the position taken by Canada. Can- ada at present was Braking only mea- gre provision for the education of her seamen. Canada was spend- ing about a year on mili- tary services and he thought that a point had .been reached where halt should be called and something be done for the sea forces. As far as he could see not a thousand dollars a year, was now being so spent. He Out Of Coal School Closed The Central school is closed today for the luck of coal. No coal is available any place before Friday, so that the schools will not be open un- til Friday morning. The Board has entered into a contract for the sup- ply of coal for the schools.

It will be completed before the bridge over the Old Man river near Maeleod and'the steel for the Calgary-Lethbridgc line .will be taken over it.

"That all depends on the settlement. The Weyburn line will be in the na- ture of a colonization road and will be built as required. If the settlers go in they must have facilities." He was much interested to hear of the question said Mr. Whyte. "They have been shipping there for many years but the trade will increase very largely. As it is now Vancouver is the largest wheat shipping port on the Pacific Coast. The wheat is han- dled differently there being shipped in sacks. This seems necessary as grain shipped in bulk heats while going through the tropics on the Cape Horn route. Thf Pacific wheat trade, too, is done with sailing vessels or tramp steamers.. These are not built with bulkheads and in heavy seas C.N.R. NEf TRACK FOR m YEAR tie.

Hamid's disastrous reign, which opened with Bulgarian atrocities, closes in a most dramatic fashion with massacres of Armenians in Anatolia. His disap- pearance as Sultan appears to cause but few regrets here and abroad but the- course of Turkish affairs will still be watched with great anxiety. The Young Turks acted boldly_and swiftly but not.without the sanction of the Schaik-UWslam. A despatch to the Times says that it was stated in the Chamber that Abdul Hamid would probably be sent to Salonika. Paris, April newspapers in general approve the dethronement of Sultan Abdul Hamid and express the hope that the Young Turks will' profit by the lesson of recent events and show the same self possession in. the exercise of government as they displayed in winning a victory. London, April Bey, the local representative of Young Turks declared today that when Abdul Ham- id reached Salonika he probably would 'have to stand trial. on 'charges set forth in the Fetwa deposing him." "A sentence of execution is not continued Hallid Bey, "but he will probably be imprisoned.
