THE STATE Berlin, Feb. 4.-The trial of seven ainber dealers and turners on a charge of defrauding the Prussian treasury of $250,000 worth of amber began in the first criminal court yesterday. The amber, or fosil reBin, is washed upon the shores of the Baltic Sea, from the sea floor and is the chief source of the world's supply. It belongs, by virtue of an ancient monopoly, to the Prussian state which collects the amber and distributed it to the turners and dealers to be worked and sold. The turners must account for every ounce, including the valuable trimmings cut from the block amber. The seven men are accused of acting in collaboration to obtain great quantities of amber from the state under false pretenses and selling it for their own advantage, and further 'with keeping the trimmings and selling them to be made into pressed amber, known in the trade as amberoid. The preliminary investigation lasted four years and the evidence filled 400 pages. nine 1Wm ^ Womertrsiteommonest'allrnont t -the root of's'o.mueh of their" i l!l�Vea/tK*^prorfiptly yieldsita . the; igen'tle 'but' certain, action of'NarDruiCo' Laxatives. * 25c. a0�IJADA, tlMITCO. oFb7'theWwarm:wo'atWr. >lbf> skat- * au,nm)r lTTai macmne, expiamea ing rink was .also b^Bfeag�in Mon- �ow ?e made it, what he put into it, dav nicht > , 7 " 1how lt �Poratcd and what the dam- nu. , j- � J mt,T �se would be to the person who ^ The young ladies. ,;^a^^: return should open it The Taylor and Bos-dance and cvemn^aghame in- the fllsk bo^ r entrusted town hfcll February ,ftd(/ Jo thmr to ^ ^ gentlemen !neBd�.i,t^^^0wd In t,e 6 f H F fl, 8&{d was present, and a. yc.rV enjoyable he had ^ Herrera evening was spent^^all, was away, and had placed the bomb, C.

The syndioate secured the lands,.im-medlaiely following the announcement by the Canadian Pacific 'Railway" of their plans for 1913, which call for the .'construction of a line that will go near the Willow Creek coal fields; on the way from Calgary to Empress-and" further east. _ rt'- ' The plans of th,e syndicate to:ques--tion' are said to be-to open up'th'8 district, and establish a group'^ mines, with the ultimate object of endeavoring ,to - invade - the western states with the product.

A fine crowd was present, there being 08 tables; in play and everyone thoroughly enjoyed., themselves. This affair was held, it will be remembered, for the benefit oi little Gertrude Doe, who met with an unfortunate accident at the 13th street crossing, resulting in the amputation of a foot: Although most o! those present were there for the sake of helping this cause, the concert was certainly 'worth ,thei price of admission, and the KentisKt society are to be congratulated on their efforts to make this affair a success, for never was there, on a Lethbridge platform, better local talent than that, which took past last night.; The first'item-on the program was a solo by Mr. J. T.- Petts, which was rendered in a very .acceptable manner. For an encore he.very graciously sang, "Absent'-'p a difficult, song for. a male voice, but nevertheless well rendered. Miss 'Simm followed with "Life's Blessing1/, and certainly lived'up to her refutation as a contralto soloist. Fo^an encore-she sangr "To Youy Ohr-Sp,eak?',a which met with hearty applause. Mr. 'G. Fryer, who made his first appearance on a Lethbridge platform last-night, as an impersonator, certainly created lots of merriment with his .funny jokes and stories, Mr. A. S. Mc-Gougan', who-* needs 110^ introduction to sLcthbridge citizens,: t in his .pleasant-rendition of "Two. JDyes.of Grey" excelled himself, even though the piece -was.a,simple one. If,or an encore he sang- "Myra",. a pleasing Scotch ballad., with a charm peculiar-to itself. This met.with hearty applause, which ^wastwell, merited. Mr.  G- E-. Fleming. followed with "The Bedouin Isove Song";: a piece with lots. of possibilities for a bass voice*..but he certainly proved himself equal to the task. "A Barque at Midnight1', rendered as an encore, w;as. certainly enjoyed by all, judging .'.by the' applause. Mrs.Waddington, as � accompanist, performed !her duties: inv-a very gratifying manner, her playing being in sympathy with the songs tendered, and helping;, in a great (measure to make the concert the success it was. .- ' After a vote of thanks proposed'by .the .chairman, and. followed by rounds of applause, cards were resumed, whioh.vlasted till midnight, when the result's', were made known.  , > ,- Ladies' first: prize, Mrs. Faunch ; Gentjemen's,' Mr. Lee. - Consolation, (Ladies)), Mrs. J.
