The preliminary hearing of Henry Joseph Hilker, held lor the murder of Gilbert Whitford at Island Lake .on 12, began this morning; at..the barracks before Justice Leod. Some startling disclosures were marie by the witnesses who have been examined so far, chief among them being, the inlroduction into the case of Mary Ward, a comely native girl, evidently about twenty years of with whom both the murdered man and Hilker were in love. It appears that about- two weeks before the tragedy Whitford persuaded .the girl to accompany him to the priest U) be married, but for some reason so far unexplained, the ceremony was de- layed and they returned to her moth- er's home. The nest day she accom- panied Hilker to the cabin where he Jived with his brother, remaining there until the day after the murder. Whitford is said to have come to the' cabin on Sunday evening in an appar- ently intoxicated state and a Quarrel ensued, during which Hilfcer stabbed the dead man several times and shot him once, the gunshot wound proving fatal. The morning after the tragedy the prisoner took the girl to her mother's home and came on to Van- rona, where lie himself witeil tor Fields oi the murder and for him to come at: once. Upon the arrival of the inspector at Vanrena, Hilker met the car and in reply to the in- quiry as to whether the murderer was at large, replied "I am the man." He was placed under arrest- at once and the story which he told to the officers was borne out hy that told by the girl in the trial today.

C. Military District 13, Calgary, protesting against the city's proposal to charge a water rental at the Henderson Park barracks, was received and referred to Commissioner Grace for report.
