It was a good show with strong features and some weak spots. Out standing was the' showing in horses. There was s. big array of equine beau- ty and gracefulness and ewiiue plain- Jiess'aml utility.

CALGARY POLICE ARE-BAFFLED Calgary, Aug. police seem to be completely baffled In their chase for Shorty Lyons, murdered of Brakeman Blair, who was reported to be hiding along the Bow River practically in the1 centre of the city. The latest report said that the murderer-had been seen swim- ming rivsr from Prlncwc Is- land to'the north bank and he is later said to have bean seen hid bushes in that vicinity. The thicket in which he was sup, posed to be hiding, was surround- ed all night by forty .armed :men, but when daylight came there .nobody to be found. People here are coming to the conclusion that the police, force is either gullible or Incompetent, It seems in- credible that a fugitive could hide himicif .from the eyes of hundred! of searchers half a mile from the heart of .the city for- twenty-four hours or more. CIRCUS DAY IN LETHBRIDGE A. B. MACDONALD LOSES JOB Vtnff, Aug. A. B. Mucdonild, the veteran superin- of the Nirtlenal park, has rteelved notice from Ottawa that his no longer requir- ed, and U packing up, preparatory to quitting the official residence. Mr. Mdcdonald has no .Idea of what he will do now, but there Is fttllng lhst.lt a flrac- lous act on the part of .the prov- incial government, to give him a position if there Is one'available. He over seventy of age and took absolutely no part in the election campaign. His only of- fence seems to be that he Is a Lib- eral, and was once a' candidate, and some hungry opponent wants his job.

The men, all seem so confident of winning theic cases that they are willing to go be- fore the highest court ia the laad_and air their grievances and make their charges, which were primariljf made leforc the police committee, on day'afternoon. There are no new developments ot particular interest todav. The p II cal'ed on Chief Cfillcspie and asked for a statement, hut the duel was of the opinion that this, was not jasb llio time to talk. He seemed to take the whole matter very cooly, however, and is uow engaged princi- pally in awaiting developments. He made several statements which aio not for publication, although op- ened up a few surprises m the line ot evidence which he has stowed awayj to make public at the time of the isr vestigatlon Wants Something Specific "Really, I cannot say vciy much at this time I know wlut somo of the charges against me but they, have been made ouiy in a general and I do not feel tihat I need to be concerned as yet. Before more must be specific charges Then I "will couie right out yrith what I have to say1. Z> .S--'rI am somewhat cut up about the way this matter has turned out." I put my implicit faith in Inspector Silliker and Detective Egan, I bcliev-, cd tlmt they were working0 in the in- terests ol the force, but now I find that they hav e been secretly working against me for months. It is getting ;o be hard to know one's friends upw- adavs My (.onhdence has been abused, but when I go before the_investiga- tion committee I will tell a few lungs which will surprise somo of. _ tic people of this town." The die! made no bones about stating that he had been suspended pending an investigation, He slid hat he had told some of Us tends ibout the whole affair on Thursday, hut he has not been talking or publication up to the present.
