Ushyima came to the police station here yesterday j and asked for assistance in locating j his .white wife, his bride of two months, who has run away from j him. He said she had formerly lived in Let-hbridge and had an account in the Union Bank here. Detective Egan, later in the day, went to the Union Bank to enquire if the woman had been 'there recently and was then in- formed that the Jap had presented a cheque for bearing the supposed signature of his wife. They had re- fused to honor it and had retained the i cheque, as they believed1 it was forg- ed. The police consequently hunted -Ushyima and placed him under ar- rest.
