Lethbridge Phone 1183 JIM NOT His Appointment to Important Office Has Occasioned Great Surprise SPARKS FROM RAYMOND Berlin, Feb. ' 3-The appointment of H-err von Jagow as secretary of foreign, affairs was received with considerable surprise by the German self-nsser-t;pri''usually ftt-Wbiited to a Prussian ' ni'ist.ocr;t. The new secretary is ; )iia fiftieth, yoar and almost youth I iu. upiJCnranoa, "��'".." Raymond, Jan. 31.-The Raymond First Ward Dramatic Co. returned from Cardstonj where they presented the play, "The Golden Giant Mine," to a large and very appreciative audience. The troupe made up on the train and upon their arrival at Cardston at 8:40 p. m., were driven to too opera house, which was in-reaidiness and within fifteen minutes the curtain went up and they were down to business: The first act captured the audience' and the applause continued throughout tho play. The moving picture shows shut down and turned out to give the Raymondites a welcome, and their kindliness was appreciated. Several travellers who were present at the play, were''heard to remark that, they had paid $1.50 tor "hows that were not as. good ts this production, so it is evident that the troupe gave satisfaction. Wc learn that Stirling and Magrath will be visited, in the near future and no doubt will turn out in large numbers to see the play. Mrs. Z. N. Skouson, Miss Blanche Wasden, Bessie CluiT, Miss Eva Skouson, ,Thos. Albitsou, Wm. .Card and D. G. Selman were visitors to Cards-ton in company with the dramatic company, and all report having"had a very enjoyable visit to our sister town. The Stake schedule shows a'basketball ganvo tonight between-the two Raymond Wards, but we learn that both teams fearing defeat, owing to sickness among their players, and their unwillingness to substitute lest they should meet � disappointment, have secured doctor's certificates that a .sufficient number are indisposed, so as to meet the requirements of the rules adopted, which requires three members of a team to be unable to play in order to have a game called off. The public have been counting on this game and have watched the calendar very carefully for the day and then to be disappointed is worse than defeat in the face of obstacles. The town is well enough supplied with good baisket ball men, to avoid anything like this and the schedule should he carried out even if substitutes fail to do just as good work as the regulars. The games are given for the benefit of all, and not simply for victory sake, therefore if substitutes are necessary remember that some day- he may be one of the regulars and this very game may be the reason of his promotion. James II. Budd, brother of George H. Budd, of Raymond, leaves for Lethbridge Monday, to take charge of the office of the Prairie Agencies, which company is under the management of John R. Revill, and have offices in the Kirkham building, near the Merchants Bank. Mr. Budd is a man of considerable experience in this line and wili prove a profitable addition to Mr. Kevill's force. William Redd and Orrin 11. Snow will be visitors to Lethbridge on Saturday's train. ' The moving pictures at the Alta on Thursday night were excellent, and a good crowd was in attendance. The Jubilee Singers are hooked for February 5th, and a good turnout is expected, as the singers gave satisfaction the last time they appeared here amd Ravmom people appreciate good singing.

Another important subject to be 'discussed at the same meeting was- that of the town taking over the i exhibition, and running it as a public enterprise'. This had both champions and opponents, but on the motion being put for the municipality to take over the fair the voting stood twenty-four for and sixteen against. The people and an election held. Mr. Ackroyd was in tho chair, in the absence of Mayor Ririe, and I. Matkin outlined the object of the meeting, which was to discuss these two very-vital measures in the affairs of the agricultural society. Mr. Mat-kin, secretary of the society since its organization in 1903, submitted a concise report since that time up to the end of the past year. It showed that in those: nine years the society had paid out. in prize money $9,000, owned grounds and buildings to the value of ?5,000 aud the only liability was a small mortgage. The secretary stat-td that C. B. Lewis had told fliim personally that Magrath stood fourth in the province in regards to fairs, and he hoped that the people would cooperate more in the future than they ihad in the past, so that the good name could be sustained. After disposing of the amalgamation problem as recorded above the chairman, B. Matkin, John Turner, Bishop Harker and others all spoke; in support of tho proposition of the j town taking over the fair, but it was j opposed with equal vigor by O. W. j Wooley, John Bridge, Ed. Hodge- and ! D. P. Woodruff. Tho dtbate at times 1 became very heated, and it looke'd as though the meeting- would break up in a stormy scene. But fortunately this was averted by the putting of the motion which was carried with vociferous applause. The proposal of the agricultural society was simply the shifting of the load from the shoulders of a few onto those of' the whole community,, stated B. L. Jensen. He said that the entire public benefited by the fair and he saw no reason why each citizen should not bear a portion of the burden if burden it could be called. Mayor J. B. Ririe has beon called to West Weber, Utah, to the bedside of'one of his children, who is seriously1, ill. If is not definitely known* j when ho will return. { .'Mr.--and Mrs.0,000l factories building .
