Frank; Paper says the police and the police magistrate have having a busy time of it the past week. Corporal Moses, the new head of the local detachment, whose reputation as a thorough going officer has preceded hiui, is going after "the undesirables in characteristic fashion, and with the efficient assistance from Constable Holmclen, is rapidly making a reputation for himself for efficient work. Police Judge Martin 1ms in consequence been kept busy hearing- cases ranging from serious assault to petty offences. The most important case 'of the week was that in which Gregog Kin- ack was charged with" assault and Wasil Cyepil as accessory, ly' beating up Wm. G-ordy. All are Slavs living at Hillcrest. Tuesday last'it .was charged, the two attack- ed Gordy and while Cyepil held Gor- dy down, Kinack pounded him on the head with a rock. Gordy had his skull crushed and was terribly bruis- ed; up. The evidence against Cyepil being conflicting, he was discharged but-Kmack was held ;for- trial in bonds of which he Another case from Hillcrest was that of Germaine Kickard and Leon Lalliot who were fined for disorderly conduct. In this case, it appears that, the trouble arose over Rickard objecting to Lalliot paying too, much attention to his wife. As Laliiot has considerable of a reputation as a Lo- having broken up at least one other fai-sil" -Closes took steps to see that he left_the district. These and other arrests made dur- ing the week reached quite a large total, all of which were heard and disposed of -in police court. They were'rnostly of minor importance and were in connection, chiefly, Avith Cor- poral design to clean up the district. Edmonton, Dec! one of. tho biggest houses seen in Al- berta Billy Lauder of Calgary, and Jimmy Potts, Minneapolis, went 15 rounds to a druw. The decision, was a good one and pleased the crowd which was hoping that a draw was the only decision that could be, given. The bout from start to finish, was a. good one and by far the best ever seen here. Lauder was in good shape and was very fast and his splendid footwork j alone saved him from a knockout, as he was tired after the getaway from a heavy uppercat or straight left. Potts laid back for a knockout but the little Scot was careful and never gave Potts a chance to laud his hea- vy fist. Jimmy in the earlier rounds did not land as often as Lauder did but when he did put his right or left on Ladder's jaw or wind, it shook the little Scot every time. Potts proved very clever iu avoiding Laud- er's left jabs as he took quite a num- ber ol them on his gloves and the bal- ance he stopped with his jaw. OL-auder was careful not to mix it and he put up one. of his famous running fights, being in the middle of the ring jabbing Potts one second and the next he was over on the other side of the ring with Potts nowhere near him. .In. the fifth, .round. Potts got in a hard .one to Billy's wind and made the Cal- gary boy take notice. Only during the last two rounds did Potts come out and follow Lauder step for step and, during that bout wajr the fastest of the evening. Jimmy .put all he knew to land a knockout and some of 'his uppercuts, had tkey landed square on any part of "Laud- er's the referee could, have-counts ed a hundred before he would nave opened his eyes, but Billy, usually any where but the place where Potts could knock him out.
