Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 30, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta �" FRIDAY, AUGUST 30, 1918 TMB LETHBniDnK DATT.T IIKKKLXf PAGE TliREE THAT SON-IN-LAW OF PA'S By Wellington trnmiTHmivi vears it sure fiOTTCtfTDC^WN on MY SrXJKIN' Y KEEP rROh Dt-PRWIN' OUR BOYS dlHElR. T'BACCa autOWANCE, SO THESE O^VssiH. iiryant, R. Todd, Andr^^v Barrio, Tom Slian-non, .1. Chemotl and H. Pliilipps and many otUers. Wasliington, Aug. ao.-The biggest -Intun.^ivo round-up of illicit whl.sltey di.stilier.s ovor undertaken by tlie gov-ornmont lias just been completed in southern mountain dl.stricts by revenue agents under direction of International Revenue Commissioner Daniel C. Roper.  Tiio activities of tho agents in tlic Bolzure of 48G stills', arrest of 200 moonshiners, killing of five outlaws and two s'heriffa and the wounding of a number of other government men and liquor nialjcrs. Tills systematic campaign of raids lias been under way for eight weeks, mainly in tliu mountains of Tonnes-see, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, North and South Carolina-ail dry states- but arrests wero withheld until today to avoid giving information to moonshiners of tiio activities of a flying squadron of 11 experienced revenue agents. Tiio band working swiftly from community to comimin ity, cleaned out nests of moonshiners �without difflcul'.y. More than thirty thousand gallons i:f nioonshino whis key was seized and destroyed. More than ?100,000 worth of illicit copper stills of all sizes and other paraphernalia, autoinobiles, liorses, mills, wagons and others goods belonging to tho distiliors was taken by tho flying Hquadron. About 21,000 pounds of sugar found on (liatillory premlsea �was confiscated and most of it given to the Red Cross. Recommendations for 321 prosecutions have been sent to tho .department of justice and forwarded to tho United States attorneys while most of tho moonshiners cauglit at their stills ^ire beliind Ivarg lu Bouthern jails awaiting trial. STE Will Help Allied Cause By Lecturing For The Red Cross f SENTATION AT Dawson. Y.T., Aug. 29.-Villiajalmur Stofanssou, who headed tho Canadian expedition exploring the Arctic regions of Canada, which sailed from Victoria, B.C., in 191u, arrived here today enrouto back to Victoria to nake his report. He will tiien pro ceed to Ottawa and later go to New York wliero he will open his official Rod Cross lecturo tour, probably late in October. Ho reports no definite news from Storlcorson, his assistant, who left Hersehol Island last winter. Storkerson last sent back word in April that he had reached a point 17.J miles north of the Alaskan coast, opiloalto Cross laliand. That location is 100 miles beyond tlie Leffing-wcll-Miltkelsen party's advance point, the farthest north ovor reached in that section of the Arctic. Stefansson believes that Storkerson travelled easterly, trying to reach Melviilo Island, whifth is 600 miles further across tho ice, belug one of the longest journeys over attempted over Arctic ice. Storkerson had three Rakiraos and two sleds of supplies when last heard from and with good luck ho may have reached Melville. LOOKING WELL Stefansson is looking well but says that it probably -will bo a year yet be foro hla old time physical endurance returns, when ho says he, will again assume Arctic explorations. Ho will visit his mother at Wynward near Saskatoon, before proceeding to Ottawa. On the night of the 28lh August last, tho miners and citizens of Diamond City, assefnbled on tho lawn of Mr. and Mrs. Bamling's residence, and presented them with a case of HilvorwanJ, suitably inscribed, in tok-on at their esteem, on their departure for Kelowna, B.C., where they have purcliasOd a fruit farm and in' tend to make their future liome. Tho presentation was made by Mr. J. L. Parker, general manager of tho Diamond Coal Mine, on behall of tho donators, who made a short speech, Humnrarlzing Mr. Bamling'g work during the past 12 years, 10 of which were"^ spent as overman at tho'Diamond coal mine and 2 years at the Chinook coal mine. Amongst, the things said wero that Mr. Banillug liid proved himself loyal to the UitevestB of tho company and that the".speaker personally regretted the" severance of relations, nd that, ho voiced tho sentiments of ail when ho said that they regretted losing Mr. and Mrs. IHamiing. He also alluded to Mrs. Bainling as being a perfect hostess and also to tho great sacrifice both parents had made, through their only sou John Bamling, joining up with the overseas forces, and hoped that ho would return safe and sound, so that future young Bamlinga-when they looked upon tho mute presentation about to be made-could rejoice from tho fact of the rooipionts standing so well in llio community. Dr, Inkroto spoko of the great I056 tho town of Diamond would suffer through their leaving as did Messrs. Ohristle, Wyatt, Lawrence, 'Scott and others. . Mr. Bamling responded feelingly to tho various speeches am} thanked one and nil for tlieir roniarks and good will and 'for tlio handsome present madJ, and anld that lie did not think lie had so many friends, as ho ovi dently had, but he was obliged to leave, having purohasod a bit of ground in the Garden oC Kden (Kol owim, B.C.), and that both ho and Mrs, Bamling would be glad to see ny of their Diumond friends at any tinio I'hey cured to pay them a visit, and In conclusion thanltod them all tor tlioir kind thoughts as expressed lu tho gift and also for their presence there that evening. 'I'lio crowd thou sang "For tbe.v. are >silly jjooU tollowa,!" and rofroBhiueuts NEW EXAAiPLE of GERMAN KNAVERY London, Aug. 30.-(Canadian Press Dispatch fr"om Reuters Limited )-neutral was an eye witness of the fol lowing .example of German knavery British airmen liad bombed and partly destroyed a German military train kliiing and wounding many soldiers. But before any attempt was made to succor tho wounded, a number of men began painting a huge rod cross on the wrecked carriages, the Idea being only to pretend that it was a hospital train. The Germans then photograph ed tho wrecked train and doubtless copies of this are circulating in Germany and neutral countries. SIBERIAN FORCE TO MOBILIZE AT COAST Ottawa, Aug. 30.-Canada's expodl tionary force to Siberia probiibly will be mobilized at either Vancouver or Victoria. Tho military authorities have not deflnltely as yet decided on tho date or exact place of'mobilization It is hardly probable, however, thii tho force will bo ready to sail much before the end of the year. N GREAT VICTORY London, Aug. 29.-(Canadian Press IDispatch from Reuters)-Tho Canadians between Monday and six o'clock this morning have taken three thou sand prisoners. Greatest Victory Ottawa. Aug. 29.-"This is our greatest victory," the phrase occurs in a message whicii Lieut. General ir Arthur Currie, commander of the Canadian corps in France, has sent to tho premier in response to a telegram of congratulation. Sir Arthur Curio's message roads: Your kind message of congratulation is greatly appreciated by myself and the forces unuor my command. To tho splendid discipline and leadership, the indomitable courage and morale throughout the lighting force, and to the cooperation of all services and the marked efliciency of all the tafi', this is our greatest victory is undoubtedly due. With such a com-binafion I am conlideut that wo shall bo able in the future to accomplish oven greater things toward the attainment of those principles for which we are fighting, and tlie establishment of a firm and lasting peace." The premier's message was sent before lie left London. It had reference to the achievements of the Canadian forces of August 8th ifnd 9th. / GET THE London, Aug. 30.-The departmen tal committee to which was referred tho question of wages for women workers on tho busses, trams and underground railways, after tho women had returned to work, has awarded tho women virtually what tliey demanded. Their new rate of pay will be equivalent to 25 shillings a week above what it was before tho war. Some claims, however, it is declared, can only bo decided on a national basis after a full inquii:y. The gov ernment, therefore, has appointed a committee "to investigate and report as to the relations which should be maintained between the wages of men and women having regard to the interest of both as well as to the value oi their work." One woman on tho committee is Mrs. Sydney Webb. Orlllia'a tax rate for tho y.ear 191S is 39 mills on tho dollar, less 5 per cent, it paid before December 10th.
