Herald 'Volume III. Lethbridge, Alta., Thursday, August AN AUTO RAN OVER A Driver of the Machine Was Fined in Police Court An automobile attended with serious injuries to William Ma- thews, 222. Westminster road, occur- red in front of the latter's residence, in North Lethbridge about 9 o'clock j last night. As near as can be ascertained Mr. Mathews beside the au- tomobile belonging to J. W. Boulton, assisting to remove some rugs and other things from the (rear seat when another automobile belonging to A. W. Kings, of the Western Canada Ag- ency, and driven by A. S. Cook, a gasoline engineer, crashed into them, knocking Mr. Mathews down, passing completely over him and carrying him about twenty feet down the street. Unaware that he had done anything but graze another car, Cook kept his machine going and.-failed to heed the calls of Wm. Boulton, who running af- ter and hanging oh to the- rear of the car, yelled, stop you've run over somebody." While hanging on, however, the latter was able to discern the number of the car which was 68. The police were "phon- ed and in a very short time they had Cook arrested, charged with. driving a car recklessly, and later released him on bail until this morning. Meanwhile, Mr. Mathews was re- moved to his residence and medical attention called. He was found to be suffering from severe bruises and shock, but no bones' were broken.. The cause of the accident is hard to say. In the police court this morning when Cook was fined and costs, for driving without lights, he said he had no idea he had run over anyone until the police arrested him. Mr. Boulton says his car. was lit up brightly, and Cook may have been dazed by its brightness as he ap- proached, for he paid no attention to their crys both before and after the accident. The street is very poorly lighted and the- line of light poles renders the street very dangerous in any case. Cook explained at the police court this morning that he was returning from Coaldale, where he had gone to fix a gasoline tractor, and.had been detained later than he expected or he would not have been driving with- Number 216 CONTRACT FOR NEW BUILDING W.

Seen by the Herald representative j this morning, Mr. Mathews' condi- tion is indeed somewhat serious. Be-! sides the internal injuries he is badly scratched about the face, and the back of his head presents quite a gash. Mr. Mathews stated that if the chauffeur had wished he might have averted the accident by stopping the auto. "I grabbed and hung on to the said Mr. Mathews, "and was dragged several feet. I yelled to the driver to stop. Feeling no slacken- ing in the speed I could hold out no longer and dropped, and both wheels passed over my body. It was hind wheel that hurt the most.'

Ten thousand persons attending the grange picnic raised a cheer as the ex-president appeared. 'Catching sight of Senator Daven- port, Colonel Roosevelt greeted him, warmly. As soon as he began his speech, he turned to the senator and said I am glad to see you on the'plat- form, Senator Davenport. The only, kind of politics I care for is the kind of politics in which decency is com- bined with efficiency. I hold that the only way in which- a politician can really serve his party is by helping that party efficiently to serve the people.
