Italian Ran Amongst In Montreal In Awful State Montreal, Dec. was witnessed tonight on ,a crowded thoroughfare of ah. Italian running among the shoppers with his throat cut. He was gashed by a razor iii the hands of an unknown assailant. The blood left "a trail-' in the snow, and the injured man collapsed within sight of his home. Robbery or re- venge was thought "to be the motive. The man'was taken to an hospital and it is thought he will probably die. His assailant has not yet been caught. by Capttin Chicago Angeles, CaL, Accord- ing to an interview with Frank Chance, captain of the Chicago Na iiorml League team lagt (teason, pub- lished here today, the haa not been told of the alleged disgraceful treatment accorded the Chicago team by some New York .fans and players prior to deciding game with the Giants oil October 8th. "Fearing that they could not beat us even with the advantage of play- ing on their own grounds, the Giants deliberately planned to cripple sev- nnr jTion bofore ths said Chance. '.-For, this. purpose they had a dozen prize fighters congregated in a con- venient place, and the starting of a tight would have been the signal for them to jump and beat up some of our best men." LETHBRIDGE HAS A POPULATION OVER SEVEN THOUSAND Within the City Limits There Are Over jSix Thousand People Population Doubled In Past Two Years STOCK GROWERS ARE DEPLETING THE RANGES Unwise Policy of Shipping Out the Best Young Breeding Stock.

Regina, Bask., Dec. the Le- gislature Attorney-general Turgeoii moved-the second reading of the bill providing for the creation of rural municipalities throughout, the pro- vince.

SHRUBB TO RACE LONGBOAT. Contest Will Take Place in-New York Early in the Year. Boston, Dec. Shrubb, the "long distance English profession- al champion runner, has accepted the challenge to meet.Tom Longboat, the Canadian Indian, the vanquisher of Dorando Pietri, in Madison Square Garden, New York. Whatever be the result of the Shrubb-Longboat con- test, it is said that the four-cornered long distance fight .between Dorando, Slu-ubb, Longboat and Hayes will be held soon after. to year, although they were sot up that of some former years. Mr. -McMullen said that, he felt like sounding a note of warning to cattle raisers who were engaged in -the ruin- ous policy of shipping out to market their breeding xstock. Fully 50 per cent, of the beef output this year has been well bred young breeding cows, the loss of which will be most keen- ly. felt in. a year or two. The practice will most 'assuredly have the effect of enhancing the price of: such and necessarily curtail tie output of beef animals until the breeding stock has been replaced. Some breeders became discouraged by the losses sustained in the severe winter .of and quit the-, busir ness. Others arc giving their entire attention to wheat raising, overlook- ing the fact that.ihe breeding stock is an essential, part of the "farming in- dustry. ..__'. "I cannot but said Mr. McMullen, "but that -this lint of con- duct will prove very costly in the end and be one that will be of great in- jury to the stock industry of the coun .try." The matter referred to by Mr. llc- Mulien is one of serious importance to the cattle industry of Southern Al- berta. It is true that the days of the cattle ranges are over, but there are still millions of acres of fine grazing lands in the West, capable of sustain- ing many times the number of cattle that were ever in .the country.
