DEVI A FAVORITE Three :Appolntinents Will be Made Very Soon. It is learned that a deputation waited upon Hon. Frank Oliver at Edmonton last week and ui^ed the appointment of A. B. Maodonald; the Macleod rancher, to the senate,. Hon. Dr. DeVeber, however, is looked upon as the almost certain choice for the senate from Southern Alberta. His long and active service for the Liberal party in the days when Liberalism was far from being as strong as it is today in this country, and his thorough acquaintance with the needs and conditions of Alberta, are not likely to be overlooked when the appointment is made. Rumor says that John A. Mc-Dougall, the well known Edmonton merchant, will be the choice for the nortliem part of the province.. Dr. Lafferty, Jas. Reilly, P. Burns and Dr. Rouleau are mentioned for the appointment that will be given to Central Alberta. Alberta at the present time has niily one senator, Hon. J. A. Loug-heed, of Calgary, but the autonomy bill provided that the new provinces were to be given four representatives each in the upper chamber. PETITION FOR MAIL FACIUTATIES Settiement An idei wiiich tiie bridgt^ is developing?, is gatES from two petitions that have recently bi'ini received by Postmaster Higinbotham for postoifices at Little Bow, twenty miles north of here and from Rocky Coulee, about the same distance west. Close upon seventy names, the heads of families, made the request for the office at Little Bow and forty or fifty for the office at Rocky Coulee. The settlement of these sections has advanced phenomonally, and the petitions of the twocommunities for-postoifiue facilities are likely to be granted, though it will be sometime before the postpffice department reaches a decision^ as' they have to secure reports front the Inspector and the postmasters in the vicinity. Both places would have their mail distributed from Lethbridge, and in conseguence, a stage route may be established between this town and these places. Coaldale is also going to send in a petition for a postoffice. The settlers feel that the popiilation in that section warrants the location of an office there. GOING OVER BOOKS Investigatfon into Finan ces of Raymond ALLEGED TO BE A SHORTAGE It Is Said the Security Compiny Will Prosecute. An investigation is being made into the books of the late treasurer of'the town of Raymond, and it is quite likely that an official audi will follow. Rumor has been busy during the past few days, insinuat-ingthat there was ashortageof $2000 in the town funds bat no verifica-for this gossip could be found, though it was admitted that sever, al discrepancies has been discovered in the books. Editor Matheson, late of the Ohronicle, bad been flecretary-treaj surer of the town, but left there lately to take a government position at Edmonton. It is probable his friends think, if he was on the ground;' tbe errors found in the books, could be explained to the satisfaction of the town.i, It is understood that the town is protected from any loss by security company bonds. It is said today that the securities company will take criminal proceedings against Matheson, who it is alleged, is not now at Edmonton. Matheson is a clever newspaper man and was formeriy at Frank and Pincher Creek. For a fime he was in Britiiih Columbia. His home is in Georgetown, Ont. He married and has one child |THE BIG IS STILU And the manner in which the people of Lethbridge have responded to our aii::C'nTicemei havemade any merchant's heart glad, and best of all not one of the hundn>dH v^') .it tended went away dissatisfied The people of Lethbridge are certainly quick to take advantag;; of: suchioppor-tunities where many a nimble six-pence went far beyond all expectations. Wv^ve gratified;ht the response our great sale met and wish to thank the many patrons that we gained tji rough;; this; salo \ People came for miles to attend and went home delighted. And from umny v/e have 'i Thieves atWork. Thieves have been prowling about the town lately. Chi Wednesday night the Massey-Harris offices and the News office were broken into and thoroughly ransacked, but, in neither instance, are loses reported. Entrance was gained at the Massey-Harris office by foroing a window. The till was opened but as the cash had been deposited, the burghirs had to leave, without securing a nickel. Papers were strewn about, but none were taken away. At the News office, the cash box was empty too, but the prowlers left traces of their presence by sctitter-ing letters and the like about. A number of citizens report their clothes lines have been robbed of wearing apparel. Evidently the same gang is working in the offices and about the back yards. Failing to secure the coin, they are doing the next best thing, in stealing clothes to cover their bodies. It is to be hoped the rascals will be captured and punished. Given A Gold Watch. T. On Wednesday evening last, E. Saunders was summoned into one of the rooms of the Dallas to sign a paper but he found to his surprise tnere was no need for using a pen or pencil Instead he had to stand up and listentothe praises of his worth and popularity from the Knights of Pythias, of which he was an honored member. But that was not all. He was given i beautiful gold wateh also, and "Si. found tbe/'mainspring" of thought wouldn't work, but the smile that wreathed his countenance told the Knights that he valued tbe gift mora tlian words oould tell.
