Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 17, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE TEy THE LETHBJIDCB DAILY HERAU) SATURDAY. AUGUST 17, 3 .(- ALIEN ENEMYi 10 RETURN TO U. S-CRISIS AVERTED Local Veterans Hotlyi Protested . Presence Hei-e of Alien Who ^ Came From U. S. t �� -- Joseph Pincus, an alten, enemy on parole. Is leaving toilRv for tlfo United Slates, from which country he came Into Canada, and thereby a. situation which threatened at one- time to cause very serioiig trouble Jn Leth-bridge has been solved to tSie satisfaction of all. Threats of a- riot in �which the Great War Veter.ins and their friends would participaOe were at the bottom of the problem., which all hinged upon the dissatistactuon on th� part of the veterans of the local branch wi;h the whole plan of band-ling the alien enemy situation in Canada. The history of the case Is this: In 1916 Joseph Pincus. who is a brother-in-law of I^ouis ICecl. left Canada and went to the United States. Dur- ing the winter Mr. Keel wished to linvo hliii return, and wrote to W. A. Huohanan, M.I', at Ottawa, aslting him to use his good otficos to this end. Mr. Buchanan turned .Mr. Keel's letter over �o the department of imml-sration al Ottawa, aslting them to do what they could to meet the wishes t>t .Mr. Keel. Pincus came to the lino nt Coutts shortly after but was refused udtuisslon on the groimd that he had not received his alien enemy permit from WaaTliington allowing him to leave the country. Two months afterwards, on a wire from the superintendent of Immigration to the inspector Rt Coutts. Pincus was allowed to cross the line at Coutts, he having received tjie necessary . permit from Washington in the meantime. A tow days after Pincus crossed the line, the superintendent nt Ottawa fiWcd the inspector at Coutts not to allow Pincus to cross, on the ground that representations had been made that Pincus was pro German in his utterances and was therefore an undesirable citizen. However nncus was In Canada, and came to Lethbridge where he entered tho employ of Mr. Keel. Mr. Keel went to the Coast leaving Mr. Pincus In charge of his store. It then became noised about that he had taken the place of a British silbject, and the Great War Veterans were up in arms at Mr. Buchanan for his part in placing Mr. Keel's roquosl before the department of immigration and at tho department of immigration for allow- Consult'an expert heating; engineer without cost How manytimes last �ft'inter did you promise yourself that never again would you attempt to heat your l7omie.'\vith the rusty, cracked, smoky, drafty, crratic,a ))oor furnace is, is the man McClarys want to talk to aliotit the Sunshine Furnace, because he knows what-a gootf furancoought to be and do.

Immediately. Demand Hl� Internment. Prsstdent Longworth and Sccretarj* Maddlflon of tho O.W.V.A. wont to Mayor Hardie and the police officials with the problem. They demanded that Pincus bo either interned or sent back to the States. The police officials stated that there was no ground for Internment. Tlio Veterans' -officers declared that they would not bo responsible for the action ot their comrades If Pincus continued to hold his position In tho Keel store, for though It had been learned that no ttritlsli subject had been dismissetl to malio a place for Pincus It was feared that such would happen, and Pincus therefore constituted a menace to tho peace of the community. Mayor Ilar-dio at once took tho matter up with tho immlKration department at Ottawa, advising early action In the removal of Pincus. 'ITie reply was lo tlio effect that In case of trouble it would bo possible tor the city to increase tlie police force to deal with It. This served but to enrage the Veterans. However In the meantime, tho Voter J. C. WAITERS SPEAKS HERE; ROASTS LLOYDtORGE; DENOUNCES AHIDE OF COAST MEN IN DESERe CASE A good crowd ot labor men attended the labor hall last evening to hear President J. C. Wattora of the Domln-iqn Trades Congress, and they were certainly well repaid for their attendance. iMr. Walters proved a gifted speaker and his two and oiie-halt hours address was listened to with rapt attention. Mr. F. Smoed, president of the local trades council occupied the chair and after u few opening remarks, introduced the speaker. Mr. Watters opened his address with a few introductory remarks on Ilia past record .as president of tho Trades Congress, and explained tho reason of the stand ho took whon he opposed the Military Service Act. He said the labor party pledged themselves to support the gnvornment In tho prosecution of the war, and noth Ing was dono to hamper the govern-ans had taken the matter up with tho i meat in this respect. But there was to provincial branch and yesterday morn-' be no coercion, and tlicy had stood to ing W. ,1. nysom president ot the Alberta branch and a member of the Ai- de all they could to aid in winning the war. but on a voluntary basis.^ Mr. berta Returned Soldiers' Commission i Watters did not speak in very gloW' came to tho citv. and after discussing l ius terms of Premier Lloyd-George, the whole situation with tho Veterans'' and said he was a tricky politician, in officers here, with Mayor llardie and fact, the trickiest politician in English Supt.

Meeting of Veterans. .\ meeting ot the Great War Veterans was held last night when the whole matter was discussed and the solution announced. The correspondence in the matter was read by Secre-Mayor Hardie and S. stomach Lloyd-George. The speaker loudly decried the big profits made in the manufacture of munitions In this country, and said that if tho profits made on the manufacture of shells alone had been given to the men in the trenches, they would be receiving $5.00 a day instead of $1.10. Mr. Watters said he had great admiration for Dr. Robertson and he would prove tarv Maddison. .viayor naruie aiui o.; ,, ,, ,,. , , r ^ j J.

There should be' no idle days. The big problem just notr is hot the shortage of food, but of fuel. Mr. Watters concluded his remarks by asking the labor man to think and study now as he has never done before and be prepared to help solve the problems that will arise after the war. Questions were asked by Messrs. Barrowtnan and Symonds, the latter asking .Mr. Wuttera if It was the intention of the Trades and Labor Con-gross to get recognition ot tho G. W. V. A., as one of the greatest after-tho-war problems would be to find employment for the returned men. Mr. Watters replied it would bo impractical to get together, as they were not a trade union, but as most ot the men are eligible to join a trade union, he could sec no reason why they should not co-operate, and humanity would benefit by co-operation. Sergt, Jowett also spoke ot tho friendly .relationship that existed be-tWosB'the O.'.W.;'V. A. and labor, and hoped, to ^aee the tl^o wlion they would be more solidly uiilted.

The Peace River district has been for many years the subject of much Interest and speculation. Alluring tales from 'adyehturoUs pioneers, of its wobderful resoufces, charming climate and varying scenery, have long since l�ht to the district that charm of romance which distance and uncertainty blended with glowing promises. Now, however, the land so long famed by legend and mystery is being proved a reality, modern transportation having, so to speak, brought it to our very doors.

During his address he urged against violence ot any kind In these cases, declaring ___....... ______ that it did not tend to strengthen the j ^^eie "injbued"with the Idea they'were G.W.V.A. but he thought the Veterans should use the incident to insist that the alien enemy policy of the government should be greatly altered along the lines suggested at the Toronto convention where a resolution was passed that the alien enemy citizens should be conscripted to work at soldiers' pay and that the amount earned by them over and above the $1.10 per day should go Into the treasury of the country to be used in prosecutliig the war. . - . ^ Should Be Given Chance. During his remarks Mayor Hardie stated his belief that anything Mr. Buchanan had done in the case had been done thoughtlessly or he thought Mr. Buchanan oa his return should be given a fair chance to explain President Longworth also expressed the same belief, but he declared the Veterans should see to it that he didn't make such a mistake again. He made It clear however that he didn't think Mr. Buchanan had endeavored to use his influence to do sonjethlng which would hurt the Veterans. It was an unfortunate occurrence, and Mr. Buchanan would be put in pos-ses-slon of the Veterans' stand on the whole alien enemy question so that it anything of a similar nature arose In future he would know what action he should take. The meeting se.emed to be very well satisfied with the solution of the Pincus affair, and.^a vote of thanks was passed to President Dyson, Mayor Hardie and all those who had helped in reaching the solution. fighting for their existence. He said they should try and bring the German people together instead of dividing them. "Our duty lies in doing ail we can even in spite of the government, to save democracy. We cannot all go to the front. Men must be left in the mines, in the factory and on the land. Mr. Watters denounced the attitude of the coast labor men in the case of Goodwin, the deserter who was shot. He said the man was a deserter. In khaki and was armed, and it he had been in the States he would have been shot long before. Mr. Watters said there was an element at the coast which was doing more harm to labor cause than good. Mines Should Keep at Work The man that is digging coal Is feeding the country just as much as the farmer." lUr. Watters said there Is a Ford anc/ Service Of the Ford Car, itself, surely little need be said. Everyone knows its supreme value. Its reputation as a most-car-for-the-money automobile has penetrated to farthest regions and to all points of the compass. This reputation has been, in no sense, a "lucky" happening. Excellent In design and long In value-to-the-dollar, as the Ford Car undehatnhly Is. It � could never have won Its reputation had not tho Company back of it recognized how essential Real Service to the buyers and owners ot Ford Cars was hound to be.

FORD GARAGE 6. C. McCREERY, Manager H. E. IVIEIBACH, Proprietor ALL SOUTH TOWNS On account of an erroneous state ment which seemed to Indicate that the half rate of hay to be shipped In for the use ot farmers did not extend to points further south than Wilson Siding, there seems to have been con siderable misunderstanding on the parts of the farmers on the Weyburn, Coutts and Cardston lines. S. S. Dunham took this matter up with' tho secretary of the U. F. A. with a view of securing the.same rate for the farmers along these lines that were granted to the other parts of Southern Alberta affected by the drought. As a result ilr, Higginbotham has sent to Mr. Dunham the following copy ot a letter from the Depart ment ot Agriculture: "I am directed to reply to your letter of August 12th addressed to Mf. Craig regarding free transportation of hay to the settlers on the Weyburn, Coutts and Cardston lines ot the C. P. R. "This matter came to our attention about a week ago and we immediately took it up with the C. P. R. offlcials here. They Informed us that it was the intention of the company to in elude the lines In question in territory A of their tariff W. 4216. The local agent at Cardston had apparently mis interpreted the description of this territory. I understand that shipments are now being made from these lines without any dlfflcuity." It would seem from the above letter that tho half rate applies to all points on the above lines, and that the rates In question are available to all farmers of that district, Several draft evaders attending tho shrine at St. Anno Dos Chenes, Manitoba wore arrested by tho Dominion police, They were with a ^ll|rlmaf9.
