COAST LABOR IN strange Doings Investigated and A Startling Discovery is Made Pincher Crock, August 2.-Constablo Rogan has received several complaints from citizens of Beaver Mines as to queer doings of some strange men in that vicinity. Different reports have come in aa to armed foreigners and' rough looking characters being seen in the neighborhood .and the suspicion has been growing that the old Prentice ranch was being used as a rendezvous for some kind of deviltry. Tbo has had his weather eye peeled and on Wednesday afternoon he noticed a couple of strangers in a car. They aroused his suspicions enough to cause him to arrest them and they were found to be literally armed to the teeth. From information gleaned from them, a trip was made to the Prentice place and'" there a strange sight greeted the eyes of the constable's party. Entrenchments have been dug around the house and the place fortified. Stores of ammunition were piled up. Two men, who wore evidently feeling quite secure, were surprised and brought in and are now companions of the two arrested on Wednesday nnd are awaiting trial, which is to be held this (Thursday) afternoon. The names :;iven by the men are. Dave AViiliams, .Jim Jlitehell, R. Godson and an un-pronouncable name, all believed to be aliases. Speculation is rife as to what the outcome of the investigation will be. It is believed that other men are hiding in the brush. The men arrested, it is alleged, belong to the I. W. W. They claim to be members of the F. W.'U.

LETHBRIDGE FAILS "If they can't get it any other way, they'll make It" said a detective of tho A. P. P. to the Herald this morning referring to the illicit booze which is one of the hardest problems the department has to fight. His remarks were called forth by the Hading of quantities of raisin wine in a miner's dwelling across tho river in one of the coal camps. There was wine in all stages of fermentation. Some of it had a kick to it that would remind one of Charlie Hyssop's mule, the detective said. Some of it was still in the mash stage. . It is evident from the findings of the detective that raisin wine is popular, as one batch of the wine in process of manufacture had required a 24 pound cas6 of raisins and a 20-pound sack of sugar. It is understood s,amples of the illicit wine will be taken to Edmonton for analysis by the government analyst bcpore any prosecutions are undertak- Irrigation Meet Will Go To Medicine Hat Instead of Lethbridge x  Though Lethbridge expected to secure the 101!) convention of the Western Canada Irrigation Association, tho invitation was passed over in favor of an invitation from Medicine Hnt which was strongly backed by the Canada Land and Irrigation Co. operating In that district, according to President Mamoch of the Board of Trade who returned last night from tUo convention and a fishing trip which ho took with Peter Lund following.
