Eight were acquitted and one not tried an the ovMeiice was the same aa in the case ,of one acquitted. The trL^ils have bwn in progress since Tuesd*y mbrning;. The evidence in nearly all cases was a condict between the police dlHcers, who swore they saw the prisoners in the eroWd and rioters and attempts of such  prisoners prove an alibi failod.

"That would be bad tast?, but I do say that in years past our naval questions were beyond politics, but now naval officers years old was killed and B*red Swath-bank, 15 years old, sustained a frac-j Pander to politicians in admiralty, turud skull, which will probably cause i "I" days gone by Admirals asked death. to !

PREPARE FOR With One Hand and Clung To Train STRATHCONA UNVEILS TABLET Winnipeg Man., Aug. 27.-The unveiling of a.^ braes tablet placed by the Winnipeg Canadian club on the old stone gateway of Fort Garry today by Lord Strathcona was probably of as intense interest to the large number of people who participated in the ceremony and to Lord Strathcona as any function in which the venerable statesman has participated during this week of events in Winnipeg. SHEPARD IS ON THE MOVE Former Real Estate Agent Now Reported To Be In Oregon Enquiries are often heard concerning Y. S. Shepard, who cut such a wide swath' in Lethbridge and Calgary real estate. Many friends in Alberta are always an.\ious to know his whereabouts ond especially of the possibility of his returning so that bo can bo interviewed. A few days ago a letter was received in Lethbridge from a person in Spokane who has l>oen intimately associated with Shepard and knows a good deal of his doings. The letter says that Shepard dirt up. Spokane properly, leaving large bills for aidvertising, office help, anto-qiobilo. hire besides leaving several poopio anxious to see him with regard to certain lands they have paid for but for which Shepard has been has been unable to deliver title. Rav ing worked Spokane to the limit the letter says ho went to Denver and In now thought to be in Portland, bragon. It is reported that he has deserted the younjy wife he brought to Lethbridge and that she is instituting proceedings to secure a divorce. I Regarding the protection of trade i routes, liord Charles said that that j was what he had been contending for. !The Germans are smiling because we -iW^ oppressed with the notion that ' iwe should only build Dreadnoughts, nut to.

The train rocked ! from side to side, threatening to break his hold and throw both him and the dead man beneath the fwt-movlng wheels, . But he hold on. When the train reached Butte Brown fell to the ground completely'exhaust ed. The body of his dead partner rolled on top 01 him. Fear Repetition Of Trouble in Pennsyl. vahla Works Pttsburg, Ph., Aug. 27.-At sundown tonight sixty state troopers mounted guard at the plant of the Pressed Steel Car , Company in SchoenviHe, Wlliwe 3,600 employees of that concern are striking, anticipating before another 24 hours, a ropi-tition of the bloody riot of last Sunday. All during today imprisoned workmen have been deserting the Pressed Steel Car plant in droyes of from two to two' hundred. The men doclrire that they have been misused, sub-tage then for policemen to get aftsr ! jected ; to indignities and forced to work whether they chose or not. As quickly as the men reached outside the stockade they were welcomed in open arms by the striking employees and within half an hour the imported workmen had entered iiito a strike spirit. It is declared that the company will suspend operations before morning. "It is a marvellous thing to see unity here in Canada, with French and British. The way to keep that up is to call yourselves all Canadians; It is only right French Canadians ahould have their love for their language, they would not be human oherwise. Bu 1 think also that all ships should be built by British labor. We must get best ship yards and in the meantime let Canada develop her naval regoureei. "What you must do though, is to make your own navy with your own men. I^et your sons and daughters take pride in it as we do across in the Old Home. When fathers have sons' in the navy, fathers will wax enthueiastic over it. In the past Britain provided ships because her own prestige depended upon it. Now, .sons are outgrowing parent and it is for them to protect themselves and | also assist the parent. "It was said, and I believe it, that the Britisher is a very ugly customer to meet when his stomach is empty, but we don't want that to happen; wn want to build quietly and protect our shipping. Let there be no panic, and above all, no aggressiveness for that is contrary to Bri-(.tish traditions. When time cornea let us all be prepared to meet any enemy and preserve intact safety and honor of Empire, which we all so dearly love." Concluding, Lord Charles said: "I will say plenty here is nothing to what I will say when I meet my opponents face to face in the House of Commons. That is why I want >.v get back as soon as possible to the House, as the whole responsibility of this naval matter rests upon my shoulders." He expressed the hope ithat he would be able to return to Montreal but he remarked that he had to go Mexico to look after his estates there, "For you know," Ke added, "when the cats away the mice will play." He regretted very much that he would be unable to avail himself of pressing invitations to visit Western Canada and the Pacific Coast. He would lie to have had several months here. This Bachelor Is in Demand Spokane, Wash., Aug. 27.-Edwin W. Hyde, a btushelor rancher at Wilson Creek, Wash., who won a homestead valued at $16,000 in the drawing for Indian lands in the Flathead rescrvaticm in Western Montana, two weeks ago, is carrying his mail homo in a wheelbarrow these days and the local postmaster threatens to resign because of overwork. He is bcscigcd by widows, spinsters and romantic young women from various parts of the Northwest and middle and east-em States who arc eager for the position of housekeeper on his new ranch. He has also received a half hundred proposals of marriage from women in New York^ Chicago^ Boston, and other large centers. To say that 'Hyde is embarrassed is putt ing it mildly. He says the flood of letters was started by the publication of his photograph in a number of eastern arid western newspapers at the time of the drawing, when the corrMporidents announced that ho needed only, a helpmate to make Mfe complete.

This is the main event of aviation week, Curtiss's first round was slower by 2 1-5 seconds than his trial, but on the last round he let out his motor to its full speed and came home like a 8tr�ak, his time for the round being 7 minutes, 53 1-5 seconds, breaking the worl)d'8 record. Curtis' competitors showed plainly their astonishment at this remarkable performance and hastily prepared to compete with him. Blcrior made at| trial with his big machine, but his time was 7 minutes. 58' 1-2 sectnds slower than any one of Curtis' rounds Blerlot had made his flight for the Intornoitional Cup. He covered the first round in 7 minutes, 68 8-6 seconds, two-fifths of a second behind Curtis' best time for a lap. Bleriot's time for the full course is gfiven ofB-eially as 15 minutes, 56 1-5 seconds. Latham has not started and consequently Curtis is the winner of this great international event.
