Inspect- or Belcher, of., the mounted police, and Decaux was again taken into cus- assizes. History of Case The affair originated with the death of a miner at Frank. The unfortun- ate man met his d eath by being struck by one of the truck cars which bear the ore the mine, and De- caux was accused of starting the car on purpose so that it would strike the dead man. He was immediately arrested and a coroner's jury which investigated the matter brought in a verdict which contained the statement that there was no evidence on which to connect Decaux with the death of the man. Hon.: .Mr: Mitchell stated that an exonerated by a coroner's jury does not mean an acquittal, as the pro- ceedings before such a jury are only for inquiry, and that if any evidence is forthcoming which 'shows that some person is guilty of murder, then the police must act and arrest the guilty parties if possible. In the case, of Decaux, the man was re-ar- rested after some facts came out. in the investigation by the coroner's jury which the mounted police thought were a basis for a case.

So powerful are the jaws of 'a that the insect has been known puncture a sea shill. His speech was delivered with vigor and force and interest did not lag, though it was more than an hour in length and-tbe audience had to stand on the green. Mr. Borden referred to the articles on Conservative policy set forth in the Halifax platform, which has ibeen ac- cepted by the Liberal-Conservative jparty throughout Canada, and still stands as its policy. The excellence of the Halifax platform of 1907 was so great that our opponents were im- pelled by force of public opinion to adopt several of its provisions, he said. He did not mean that this was carried out in every respect in the or along the lines which were contemplated, but some pretense at action was manifest. He referred es- pecially to the articles of policy call- iaf; for the reform of the civil service tiie reorganization of the railway com- mission, the management of the T. C. a commission, the inception of a system of free rural mail delivery, and: the more careful selection and in- spection of immigrants. The propos- als contained 1n these articles of pol- icy would be carried out in their true spirit when the Liberal-Conservative party is returned to power.- The op- position leader then reviewed the gov- ernment's record and made many crit- icisms. still waited the Unionist programme.

Craig Has Good Word For the Local Fair interview with, the Herald H. A. Craig, superintendent of fairs and institutes, said that he had now attended three Lethbridge fairs and he noticed a marked improvement What struck him most was the swing with which everything was going. There was a smoothness and -a snap about the way things were ibeing'rnn. Considering the year, Mr. thought that the exhibits of grains, grasses and vegetables were splendid. They were far -better than he expect- ed, for until he came south, a -week ago he had the Idea that Is .generally prevalent in the north, that the whole south was burnt up and nothing was- being produced. The stuff shown was d.fa any year: Outside of the provincial fairs, Mr. Craig .thinks that the Lethbridge Fair this years holds the record for at- tendance. He -commented on the good order that prevailed. "It is plainly to be he con- "that the exhibition has" out- grown the accommodation, and I am glad to know tbat the society is al- ready-preparing lor -better. There Is no .reason >why in the very near future this fair should not be the equal of, anything-, in; the province."

A gap was made in the west- fence, adjoining the gates to the stock pens, through which the Indians entered, the horses and other .stock following immediate- ly behind without a break oi a foot. When the last animal was out, the parade forced a line three-quarters of a mile in length and completely en- circled the irack and doubled across contrf rue paraae passing on any delay, wu-noui a ed the races to start on time, and to finish up in good time.

As he did so a second shoe pierced Edward's sleeve, inflicting a slight flesh wound on the commissioner's right arm, which in the excitement, remained undiscovered TGI- hours. Unmindful of his wound, Edwards hit the man a crashing blow on the face, and they fell to the deck to- gether, Gallagher struggling with the strength of desperation and pulling at the trigger in an attempt to fire an- other shot. Edwards rained blow after blow in Gallaghers face, while Adamson and Archibald R. Watson, corporation counsel, flung themselves on the struggling two in an attempt to grasp the weapon. When Mr. Watson had obtained possession of the gun, Ed- wards and Gallagher continued a bit- ter struggle about the deck, Edwards now crying and shouting in his anger and excitement, and Gallagher pant- ing and exhausted. When Gallagher was completely subdued, a pair of steel nippers was slipped on his wrists by a special officer, and he was hurried through a threatening crowd off the vessel.
