Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 18, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta we WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 18, 19l� �rHE' LEIMBKIDGE DAILY i^riALD PAGE SE Peculiar^Mik^up in Policy Circles Over Hold-up Case Quite tho niost peculiar situation �which has arisen in police circlos In a^ethbridgo for a long time was pre-spnte^ on Tuesday afternoon in the case of J. li. Ritchie charged under the criminal code With robbery oi: An-celo Avian, a local Italian in the red light district on the night of December 13tb. The case opened with Supt. Penno-father on the .bench, Magistrate Irwin sitting with blm, but taking no part in the proceedinjss.. The prisoner was not in tile dock, nor was Avian present. J. C Hendry, appearing tor Avian, wbo bad laid the charge, asked tor a remand for half an hour as his man wa� eicic owl unable to attend court aad he wanted to �et a doctor's that effect. The request was gmnteiilt In half an hour court resumed again, but jagain the accused was Dot In the dock. Mr. Hendry presentod a certificate from Dr, Oal-brftitli tbtt Angelo Avian, the informant in the. action, was HI with the pneumonia ind could not appear lor a week. Mr. ^Hendry later Bupplement-ed this with a jstatement that the in- lOOKAT CHILD'S !1 Nurry, Mother!

Popple of Edmonton, was present to appear for the accused. Ho objected to the whole proiceediars,' and especially to the remand, asking for a dismissal of the case on the ground that toe accused had not appeared in oouft, that the charge had not been read to him, and becansa the informant Was not present. ' > Oidfi't Havs Charge "But J can't remand something ' I haven't got," saja 8upt. Pennefather, referring to tjbe tact that tlie accused man. was not in the ^ock. "That is not my fault,", eaid Mr. Hendry. "The accused, V understand, is in the possession �f thip'provincial poliee. We caiioot go into the ^rov'ln-clal police cells to arrest blm,'but I understand that the A.p.P. would produce him here at 2.30. tbi8:.;�fternoou. The fact that he IS! not here is not our fault, and places mo in a, most Invidious position." '�( "We are ready to produce the man in question at any ttue on the order of this court," said Mr. Popple in answer to this. - "Bring him In," requested the court, Produced the Man Court was adjourned for a lew minutes while Inspector, Mundy went across A. P. P.-headquarters and soon Ritchie appeared, in A.P.P. uniform, thus setting arrest ttie conjectures about his being a member of the A.P.P. force. H� was guarded by a member of the A;]^.P. while be stood in the dock. The charge lal[5l -by Angelo Avian, the alleged victim of the bQidup, -was then read to him. As the trial was a prelimtoary-hearing he was not asked to answer it. There was a^ long con troversy between, the court, and Mr. Hendry as to whether tbeyCbarge had been laid in tbtf p;-oper terms, but this was allowed to pass. Then Mr, Hendry asked for a remand until ten o'clock, Dec. 24th,-1'h1s was granted and bail was fixed by the court at $3,000 being the accused for, $1000 and two Burettes for $1000 eacl> furiUsh-ed by Inspector Mundy dud II. P. Maddlson. . v / During the discvsslOQ as to whether bail should, be granted, Mr: Hendry made the statement'that. In case the bail was not granted, the accnsiM should be turned over to the city police as he was their prisoner. This brought about another aquabVle i># tween counsel. The A>P.P. ;intimat�d that Ritchie was their prisoner and would femjain so, Mr. Hendry wanted^ Chief Hardy to arrest Rltishle while he was in the dock, .but tbis didn't appear to be legal. Supt.

It is now said that a tei^ drops of,a drug called freezone applied directly upon a tender, ac^ng corn relieves the .soreness and aoou'' the entire corn, root and all, 'Can be lifted out -ft'ltliout pain. For little liost a quarter of ' an ounce of freezone dan be obtained from any drug store which is claimed to be sufficient to remove every hard or soft com or callus from one's feet.

Donahoe, of Foremost", Who was in tho city last night on his way to Calgary to attend a meeting of the executive of the organization to complete arrangements for the an-,nual convention which is being held , this year in Calgary. "We could have ( got it last year.for I..ethbrldge, with | but a few more votes, but I think we ) can make it for next year. I feel i that there will be a great deal more interest taken in this organization in the south It we could hold one convention at, Jjethbridge. This would lead to the organization of more rural municipalities, but as long as the conventions are held away in the north, the south farmers will not take the proper interest.m them.
