Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 2, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, February 2,1913 THE LETHBRIDG E DAILY HERALD Pasre 7 COMPLETELY CURED OF DYSPEPSIA By Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia TaWete We are continually hearing from grateful people who nave hid experiences like that of Miss Alice E. Cooper, of Niagara Falls, Ont., who write*: "I wish to express my gratitude to you for the benefit I received from your most wonderful Dyspepsia Tablets. Haviug taken other medicines without having received the slightest relief, I heard of your,' Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tablets and thought I would give them a trial. I have been completely cured of dyspepsia^ I will be only too pleased to advise any one troubled with dyspepsia to give them a fair trial." Na-Dra-Co Dys-bep'sja Tablets not only give the immediate relief from heart-, burn, flatulence, acidity of the stomach and biliousness, which issomuch needed, but if taken regularly for a few days or weeks they completely cure the most aggravated cases of stomach trqublc, When for 500. you can get a box from your druggist,, why. go on suffering?

This man was applying for the position of ambulance nurse. � He told the Board of Guard-Jans he considered himself fully qualified for the poBt, as he had "two uncles and one cousin on the board." A Royal Commission has been appointed to enquire into the entire situation of civil service appointments, and the Association of Clerks has presented some strong criticism of present methods. It is alleged that caste and patronage are taken into consideration, who are choseu not because of their qualifications, hut because of their ability to bring personal influence to bear. Most of the best positions went to sons or relatives of politicians or officials, thus supporting the suggestion that the best places are;, kept for a certain class of the community. A representative at the association asked directly by the chairman of the commission, Lord Macdonnell, whether he thought there was any ground for the suggestion that heads of departments were -plainly biased in favor of a cer? tain social class, replied: "I should say so. I think it is unquestionably a preference for the- class of men who are recruited In the main, as we have seen, iroxn Oxford and Cam-bridge."..... L TRADE BOOMING BOSSES FELT IN GENEROUS MOOD TOWARDS THE,MEN London, Feb. 3.-rCoal miners in the federated area'of England and Wales have been given, a further inorease in wages of five per cent., effective last month. This is In addition "to the five per -cent, increase granted (last Oct tober; and it brings the wages of .all" the men in an4 around the Jnln'es up to sixty per cent, above the standard rate of 1888. - � Latterly the coal trade has been booming, '.and,, the miners are thus sharing in. the. prosperity of the owners. Thig last advance was granted by the unanimous1 vote of the Coal Conciliation Board,' composed of mine owners and representatives of the miners' union;''4 It adds upward of $5,000,000. fo':the annual pay roll of 400,000 men; =. �.,"' - The Scottish and South Wales coal fields, where' there is always more or less trouble between the men and the employers, are not in the federat-ea area. . convipo $51 An Epicurean Afterthciiight to make a ; Good Dinner Perfett. i D. 0.

The first change has been made at Portsmouth, where the heretofore familiar low bTick ana stone buildings have been replaced ^y numerous semi-Bub-terranean stores. These stores have been constructed of ferre-conerete, the roofs being covered with three or four feet of earth, and turfed over to make each magazine an insignificant object from above. The site selected is on one of the upper reaches of the harbor 'which can only be reached by small craft, the explosives being taken direct from them into the magazines. Both the land and water frontages are under constant watch by the police, who at night have the assistance of trained dogs. The Admiralty has also given instructions for a great in the oil fuel storage at Portsmouth, which goes to confirm the reports that all the new British hattleships and cruisers are to burn, that fuel. There are already rows of great oil tanks at For-ton, hear Portsmouth, and their number is to be largely increased. New pierB for unloading tank steamers and loading the largest warships also are under constructor The first of England's monster submarines, the E4, has just been commissioned. The new vessel is a remarkable advance upon her predecessors of the "D" class. She has four times the displacement of the "A's," and carries a pair of 12-pounder quick-firing guns, with disappearing mounts. Her oil engines of 1750-horsepower give her a speed of 16 knots on the surface, and 10 knots submerged. The surface tonnage is 700; Two more vessels of the same class are completing, and work has been commenced on the "F" class, which will have a speed of 20 knots. The increase in the size of all England's, warships, from battleships to submarines, and the higher wages to be paid the men, is going to have an appreciable effect on this year's naval estimates, which, ft is believed, will approximate 15256,000,000, an increase of nearly fifty millions over last year, The personnel of the navy will materially Bweil the expenditure, aa, it is understood that Prince Louis of Bat-tenberg, who as Second Sea Lord, was responsible, for the recruiting and training, consented to take the position of F^rst Sea Lord, and becomes chargeable for maintaining the fighting and sea-going efficiency of the fleet, and its organization for war, on the distinct understanding that a progressive line of policy would be adopted forthwith in regard to the personnel. The new estimates have also to take account of the renewed competition of Germany atnd her allies of the Triple Alliance.

After a three day fight in�'�.�which;the Progressives joined with many -Republicans in opposing the, restricted presidential terms, the original 'resolution was passed by a.",vote of 47 to 23.

LEOD OFFERS AJALVERSIONE IS ray CHEAP Council Feel That They Have Solved Big Problem-The Hospital Ball THE PEOPLES' FORUM "JUST A HINT" Editor, The Lethbridge Herald: Slr,~rFor the comfort cf the travelling public who ride on the street cars, would it not be possible to have the motorman close the door between the vestibule on his end of the car and the passengers' part of the car, when he opens the outside door to get down and throw IiIb switches. It does not look right that the passengers should have to sit in their seats and shiver while the motorman performs this work, while at the other end of the car the conductors keep their doors open the shortest time possible. This morning I had 'occasion to ride with the both crews 011 the cars on the "red1' line. One of the motormen was very careful to keep his door shut, while he threw his switches while the other man made no attempt to close his, but kept it wide open while he leisurely descended, threw the switch, looked around at the scenery, got up on the steps of the ear, 'wiped his feet, took a look in at the passengers to see how they were standing it, then slowly and carefully closed the outside door. Hoping that this letter will be the means of having this kind of thing stopped, I am, Yours truly, PUBLIC. Would Like to Live Until Tories Could Appoint His ES ML Montreal, Feb. 2.-By a unanimous finding, the judges of the local court" of appeals 0n Saturday reversed two judgments of Mr. Justice Weir in the | cause Celebre botween Dr. Workman and the Wesleyaa Theological Uol-. lege. The higher court refused tp concur in the findings of the trial judge, on practically all points and hence the award of $3,500 made m favqr of the plaintiff in the lower courts was : aniulled and the finding reversed with j cost's against Dr. Workman. The j judges of the higher tribunal to^ok up 'Dr.- Workman's Engagement as a professor in the Wesleyan College 1 and regarded it in the light of a conWac|, whereby he had bound himself 'to teach in conformity with the "doctrinal standards of the church. On at least three cardinal points: The deity of Christ, the virgin birth, and the atonement as an oxpiationi and propitiation, Dr. Workman's views were at variance with the doctrinal standards of the church, hence he had been guilty of breach of contract: Therefore, the body which engaged him had a right to dismiss him and he could have no recourse in IaAv againsts .his former employers. This is the second stage in the' cause celebre, which has been in the local courts for nearly five years. It is not known whether the finding.' 0? the court oE appeals1 will be � taken higher, this being a matter which will be determined upon after a .conference between Dr. Workman and his legal advisers.

GERMAN GRABS A BRITISH ART TREASURE Lendon, Feb, 1,-The depletion of English art treasures continues. The latest art object to take iljght is Reuben's large painting "Tribute to Money," which was Bhown a.t last year's royal academy winter exhibition by the trustees of the late Miss M. A. Driver. , Tills- time. it is Germany that has captured the prize,'-not America; � for tjae six-foot canvass has passed rip to the collection of Councillor Kopp'el^ of Berlin, the purchase price boihg great boon to the whole country, being made use of by all who require nursing. U. Spencer, who has undergone an operation at the hospital, is reported today as doing as well as can be ex-' pected. Bank managers report that no change in the money situation need be looked for until after the crop of 1913 is on the market. So the banks seem to depend on the farmer to feed the world, just like the rest of us. A leading man on the opposition side of the Alberta Provincial house spoke wlfen he heard, of the result of the A. & G. W. railroad. There is no possible chance of us defeating the Sifton government, hut this will help us to give them a better run, while one on the government- side remarked, this will kill what few Conservative members wo have now in the house. It was ever thus. Rev. E. S. Bishop delivered a pow-' erful sermon Sunday night on the subject of choosing companions, taking for his text, the love of Jonathan and David, setting forth in plain and pleasing way the life influence oi and choice of noble lives, that will lift us up to higher ideals in every-day life. On Wednesday, Feb. 5, 1913, the next lecture in the university series of lectures will be given by Dr. Hall, professor of geology o� Alberta university. The subject will be geologi-j cal research, and will be illustrated by electric slides. Word received from Mayor and Mrs. Stedman, is that in burying their daughter in California it was ["carrying out her wishes to be buried in the, land of flowers and fruit. Pier end had been a very peaceful one, just going to sleep and' not awaking. They will oiot return for some time. During the month of January build- | ing operations have been carried on j well. Two dwellings that had the ' foundations laid have been almost 1 finished outside, while the lathing and plumbing is completed inside, and ready for the plaster, which will no doubt be finished during February. The Lysart block will be completed and ready for the various tenants this week. EXPERIMENT IN SHIPPING ACROSS EQUATOR PROVED' TO BE COMPLETE SUCCESS 1. Ii'ondon, Feb. 3.--The New Zealand government is trying an interesting experiment, which, it is hoped, will Jead td'tho sending of.-large consign-ments'of eggs to the British markets. About six weeks ago the cases, each containing three hundred new laidr eggs, left New Zealand by steamship � for London. The eggs were kept in a temperature of 45 degrses and arrived in England on Tuesday. Although there wasia surplus of eggs on the market, the consignment found reacjy purchasers. The eggs when tesfed, were found to be in splendid condition. Although they hnd been sent about six thousand miles, they could still be- fairly described as "new laid';''..judging by. the analysis.

Of CANADA, LIMITCO. 165 The British foreign minister announced last November, that he would decline to approach Russia with a view to securing the withdrawal of the restrictions placed on British Jews in that country, on the ground that such action on the part of Greaf Britain would lead to the termination of the Russo-British treaty of commerce. BECKER BABY DIED New York, Feb. 2.-A baby daughter born yesterday to Mrs. Chas., Becker, wife of the former police lieutenant, who is in the death" house at Sing Sing, awaiting execution for the murder, of Herman Rosenthal, the gambler, died thig, afternoon. ��:'.... The attending ^physicians from-the first had held out little hope of preserving, the life of the child, owing to its condition of ^general weakness. successor London, Feb. 3.-The Irue facts con. earning the illness of Lord Alverstone, Lord Chief Justice of England, still familiarly known as "Dick" Webster, although his peerage is already a dozen years old, are h�i�g studiously kept from the knowledge of the public. His condition is much more grave than is generally supposed. At his town residence. Lord Alverstone is lying surrounded by all the members of tho family. The King on Saturday sent a special equerry from Buckingham Palace with a sympathetic message, and judges and leading King's counsel have visited him. Pie is suffering seriously from heart trouble, and a critical attack of internal hemoirhage has rendered his condition so precarious that oxygen has since been administered at frequent intervals. The general impression among those knowing the real facts is that the Lord Chief Justice will n^ver return to the Royal Palace of Justice again. For many weeks ill health has prevented Lord Alverstone from properly conducting the business of the courts. On frequent occasions recently he has had dangerous attacks while on the bench, rendering necessary prolonged retirements to his private chambers to recuperate, and the abandonment of public business. So grave is the Lord Chief's condition that doctors are always in readiness for an emergency, but the 'Web-sters are of old fighting stock. Richard Everard Webster was a great athlete in the 00's. When at Cambridge he broke all previous records on the running track, and until a few ypavn 'hack attended all the big football matches and sporting events throughout the county. No doubt on� of the chief reasons for his continuing in office has been his desire that the reversion of the appointment to the Chief Justiceship should fall to the Tories. In the event of his present retirement or decease, negotiations for a re-arrangement of officers have, already taken place. Sir Rufus Isaacs, the present Attorney-General, is sure to have the post offered him. Sir Rufus was entitled to the Lord Chanoelorship, when that office became vacant by the withdrawal of Lord Loreburn from the Cabinet, but obviously it 'was felt that it would be incongruous for a Jew to be exercising" the ecclesiastical patronage vested in the Crown in the selection of clergymen 'for the Church of Bnghnd livings. Theoretically, too, the Lord Chancellor is the keeper of the Royal, conscience, a fact which bars Roman Catholics from that office, as was shown when Lord Russell of Killowen was awarded the second, instead of the first, prize of the English judiciary- the salary of the Lord Chief Justice being $35,000 annually, as compared with the Lord Chancellor's ?50,000 a-year and a pension of $25,000 a year on leaving the woolsack, even if he has only held the office for a day. The last instance of a Jew holding high office was that of Sir George Jessel, one of the most distinguished Masters of the Roils England has ever seen. Sir Rufus Isaacs' appointment will certainly be most popular among the members of the bar. The vacant Attorney-Generalship will naturally fall to Sir John Allse-brook Simon, Solicitor-General, whdse rapid rise at the bar has beep one of the remarkable incidents in recent history. New York, Feb! l.TFor misapplying $50,00Q of the funds 0� the Audubon National Bank in a deal to obtain control of tlic institution, pavjid S.
