Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 31, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta 31, 1912. T n E T n i D G E D AILY ITERATE -ftgM THE CANADIAN BANK CROOK AT.MEDICINE HAT 3RAG- QED OF DEEDS TO CHIEF OF POLICE 1 The Mortlciiic Hat Mews says: On Thursday Chief llt'tico wan stand- ing on ilip foniflr of Hallway and Main Ktreels di-ussed in citizen'a clothcH, wliun a young man approached him. mid started handing out a line of stuff about the-chief beiiiK a good looking fellow, and making a hit with him, etc., which must have made tho chief hhisli.' The younK man then on io tell'that be was the best cattle rustler in the evaded the customs, 'etc., several and also dropiied a him that ho might he want- ed in .Moose Jav; fur borrowing some- one's horse, and returning it. Ho sure didn't-know that he was talking to an officer, or he would sure have lought shy of him. However, greatly 1o his surprise, the chief grasped him by the arm, "with the exclamation, "Well, if you're wan toil in Moose Jav.', we'll take care of you for and right spway he waltzed the prisoner to Ihe station. ttealimig' that he had sure put bis foot in it, the man, "Willie Anderson he said bis uame-wa.s, tried to get out of it, and denied everything that he had told the chief. Into .the cells ho went, however, and ;i wire was sent to Moose Jaw. Up to late yesterday afternoon the chief'had received no wire about the prisoner, and was of huir a, mind to let him go. but changed bis mind. This morning the 'mounte-d police re- ceived a wire from the inspector at Moose Jaw, slating1'that they held a warrant for the prs'bher's arrest for horse stealing, and to take him in charge, and also to take no chances with him. I Anderson no'w go back to the scene of his alleged misdeeds, there not to blow- about them, but probably to pay the penalty for them. MTfl ABOLISH VVILt HOLD ONE GREAT FINAL ..SMASH AT FIFTY CENTS A CHANCE -Milan, Dec. Italian govern- Hieiitiis about 1.0 adopt measures abol-" lahing the lotteries which hitherto have been H monopoly, bringing in enormous suras of money every year, this announcement being ;L Uiml of advertisement "f its intention to hold one more great anybody inny take part in any quarter of the world. The drawing will take jilace in (tome. This last lottery will carry prizes amounting Io more than Kach licket will cost a little moro than half a dollar and the first prize will be U. I-. Colllson of Winchester Spring will become principal of the Blmlra public school. GERMANY IS LAW TOO MANY PETTY LAWS WHICH PEOPLE VIOLATE'WITHOUT NOTICING FACT Berliu, Dec. the average of ihn new laws Imposed upon the peo- ple of Germany in the last feu' years is maintained it may soon bo seen that walking ncrose a thoroughfare was ono of ilie punishable offences tmdcr the penal code. Germany en- joys the distinction of Mng'hy far the most law-ridden country ;in tho world and the promised new .regula- tions for iimking streets and those for I lie control of automobile traffic will add greatly to the already sorry number of offenders against tho minor la'ivs. Ur. Finkolbnrg, governor of the foremost of the famous Moablt prisr, ons in Uorlin, In his book "People who have been punished in which is published as a part of his campaign for the revision of the pen: al code, says that already every sixUi man and every twenty-fifth woman in the German Empire has been punish- ed for some violation of the laws. Mis statistics are given in the hope that these revelations concerning the num- ber of (jermiin "criminals" may ctra- tributo to the reduction of tlie great number of punishments for trivial transgressions 'of petty, irritating laws. Dr. Kliikeiburg shows the number ol criminals in Germany a.t the pres- ent time to be of., are males and females. Every forty-third boy- and every 214th girl between the ages of 12 and IS has been punished.' The iiew regulations propbsed for imposition on 'automobilists in the province of Brandenburg, which in- cludes Berlin, contains most stringent clauses. In the first place, the maxi- mum speed must not exceed ten mil-is, an hour on, at ail cross roads and at sharp corner junctions. Secondly, each car is to have three lanterns each at least of TOO candle power, well visible at a hundred yards distant, and placed four feet above the roafl'way. The car is to have numbers on both sides as well as the back and front, and the number plates must bo placed sufficiently high to escape being ob- scured by dust. It is not believed'that these regulations, as here given, can be put into effect, but probably -will go through in a slightly modified state as German legislators love nothing better than the passing of laws that will hit some'harmless citizen; TO OWEN SOUND.

Finley Com- missioner-Macleod and Taber Have Dropped Out With Macleod and Taber out of It tho Southern Alberta Associated Boards of Trade will begin the now year on practically the same footing as witnessed the orgnnlxatlon's Incep- tion early in 1913. And W. D. Klnley, formerly1 publicity director of the Dry Farming Congress, will be the new commissioner, vice IJ. L. Leach, TB- elgned. The executive meeting of the Asso- ciated Boards held in the commis- sioner's office ycsierdiiy afternoon was not productive of much fireworks after all. It was a peculiar meeting because it meant either that the association was to end the year by dying a nat- ural death or else it was to spread its wings for u new lease of life. The attitude of the Taber and Macleod Hoards of Trade, the latter especially, had made Bonie of the officials rather dubious as to the outcome of the meeting, but in the end they all left feeling that they had. followed the only possible course towards greater progress for Southern. Alberta, The whole Issue before the meeting was the question of policy for a paid secretary as has been the case in 1912, or an hononrry secretary. That was the question which had caus- ed all the trouble at the annual meet- ing, Macleod then being the chief op- position. Yesterday Second Vice President A. H. Allen came down from Macleod with the ultimatum of that body in hts pockut. It declared that Mucluod Would follow their decision to with- draw from the association unless the paid secretary was done away with and an honorary secretary put in his stead. The plebiscite asked for by the com- missioner after the annual meeting was then referred -to, and It was found that besides the eight boards who had signified their intention of remaining with the organization be- fore the annual meeting was held, more had come in since, Maclood. and Taber arc the only two of the 20 boards who have withdrawn. H 'was therefore decided to continue the organization with a paid secretary treasurer as heretoforo. The with- drawal of the MaMeod board was ac- cordingly accepted, and .Mr. Allen was forced to resign as a vice presi- dent, no matter what his personal feelings in the matter might be. Having decided to continue the old organization the question of filling the position of commissioner vacated by Mr. Leach was next taken up and it was found that Mere was only one that of O. Finley, whose application was accepted at the same salary as is .being paid the present commissioner. Matters of finance were then con- sidered. It was decided to make the levies on Jan. 1, March 1, May 1 and July 1, the total amount to be raised during the year being in the neighbor- hood The .levies -will each be per 100 of: population of the affiliated town's and cities. Those present at the meeting were President Barker, Cardston; C. A. Gigot, High River; A. H. Allen, Macleod; A. F. Dulmage, Bow Island. A. N. Mouat, Pincher Creek, was ap- pointed second vice president, vice Mr. Allen resigned. J, B. Tuniey, of Lethbridge, was appointed treasurer.

MORE ABOUT CAPETSAN'S DEATH BLIZZARD RftGING IN, CROW'S Coloman, Dec. 30. The remains of the late Jolin Capetsan'weie Interred in the Blairmore cemetery on Sun- day afternoon. Funeral serviceo were held at Bcllevuc, and were large- ly attended by members of the local order of U. M. W. of A., of 'which de- ceased ivas a member. John. Capetsan was1 found lying dead by the trail near the Rocky Mountain Sanitarium, at an early hour last Thursday morning. The body 'was sti'ii warm when discovered, and it was to the hospital at Frank, and every effort made at resuscitation, but if. was too late. There was a depres- sion in the skull of the unfortunate man, and one eye was badly discolor- ed. He had driven up from Bellevue to Coleman on Christmas Day with the wife and family of Mr. Savon, fire boss at the York Creek mino. He reached here about four o'clock in the afternoon, and 'phoned out to York Creek. He left York Creek about eight o'clock the same night, in com- pany with another miner, and arriving in Coleman put his team In a livery barn, remaining here until two o'clock in the morning, when he got out his team and started for Bellevue. Tho team was found about a quarter of a mile east of the body, with the car- Ttage badly smashed, and the harness (angled up a telephone pole. The first supposition was that the tear.a had become frightened, thrown the driver out and run away. But later investigation tends to ttie belief that foul play bad something to do with Ihe man's death. Capetfiiin was 38 years old, a native of Fludland, and employed in t-hn Bellevue coal mines. He was a single man, and had no near relatives. At a meeting of Summit Lodge, No. 30, A.F. and A.M., held on Saturday tlie following officers were i installed for ensuing year: E. Dis- ney, W.M.; .1. H. Ross, S.W.: .1. fail's- bury, J.W.; A. Cameron, trcas.; AV, U Ommetle, secretary; D. C. Roberts, tyler; II. G. Gooclevo, S.D.; R. Barnes. .I.D.; ,1. 0. C. McDonald, chaplain; C. H.

MINES is one of the road commitMonen of Wayne County, Michigan, in charge of the highways leading from a pros- perous farming district to the market in Detroit. He ha> probably had more experience with concrete thaa any ether raid commissioner. He told some of hit in an addrew in Chicafo kit May. He WM road commissioner before he used concrete. He was .not aatuned with macadam roods. In his own words: "We decided that a change vru not only neeewary. and we act oat to find a more permanent and durable material which would approximate in rial coat that of a first clau macadam.. "After thorough investigation, we decided that a concrete road .would man' nearly realize this ideal than other The considered being in favor were: Comparatively low first cost; low maintenance freedom from dirt; comparative of traction for vehicles of all descriptions; and tile small crown Mccssarj to get rid of surface water."

Whon Her Majesty heard that Lady Esher, with many other noble women the realm, actually ititt-nded to go into the slums and instruct the and daughters of the factory -workem In the healthful, economical prepara- tion of food, she eagerly gave he: ap- proval of the project. Some of the ladies 'who will take In the movement are the Vls- ocuntess Falkland, Lady Helen Bras- sey, Lady Altamont and Lady Diick- wnrth.
