Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - February 8, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta ?�'iwoay. i-RBniiAny x.'mmh TMK LETUBKIIXii; DAILY 11KRALJ7 PAIR SEVEN FOR. II SALE OF Decision at Regina Has Effect on Druggists AH Over Canada TteRbm, Peli. R.-MugiHlrate Jleffer-luujj in the city police court, this morning gave out. a judgment in an "invalid ]>ori. wine"'case that dirwdly afford � aU'n Vstered druggist* in Canada. William TMatjig, a registered druggist, of^hia 'city, was fined $100 and cost* nnd sentenced to one month's imprisonment lor the sale of "Win-rarnis Port Wine," a. so-called tonic wine made in EngUuid and registered under Uio Dominion Proprietory or Patent Medicine Act, hi passing hoi it-on re the magistrate strongly Unit tlie imprisonment, should lie remitted. Tim point in trje defense that distinguished the easo from recent simi-lar ones was that under the act a registered druggist was protected in the salo of an article duly registered under tho act. The mtigistnito held that the temperance act and the proprietory juedleino act do not enter upon the same fields of legislation. Ho contended that the Dominion Act was ,passed to protect the public in (he sale or purchase'of''patent medicines �nd# did not purport upon the licensee any special authority lo carry on trade in Canada.

Rut. 1 have been here now about three weeks and have seen as disagreeable weather as I ever saw in Alberta. The thermometer registering 24 below with a fierce wind blowing the snow in every direction. Coal Shortage Tiie coal sh&rfrage is^very serious. People here, even women standing in line all night to place an order for coal. I heard one woman ray she had to teai' up their -fence to get fuel Jo keep from freezing. No one could buy more Mian two pounds of sugar at one time, an,I Borne days not even a pound to be had. When I left Alhcriu there was plenty of coal and sugar whore I lived at least and it seemed so strange when ] thought iliat tho U. S. had only recently-entered tho war and there was such a shortage* bY* 'food stuff, while in Canada with.nearly four years of war we .well supplied. Rut indeed a touching tribute to the love and loyalty of'the American republic to see" tjje* sacrifices that arc be.lng.'ma^deM'or hur. long time friends acrossl; th.e:afca.,.U.reminds me pf that beautiful passage, "Cast 1hy bread upon the waters and it shall return after many days." Many Soldiers The city here is full of soldier boys from Camp Custer, .jukI. outside tho city. Thousands of them are training every day ami soon will be marching "over there." The tiling I wish to say most, however, is, J do not. think the, people of Alberta- are appreciative of the advantages and opportunities of the country in which they live. Michigan is a grand state, her resources are wonderful. I was raised here and Brought up on a farm and am proud to be called her son. Dave also farmed in DaUofa, Minnesota, California and kiios/ from practical experience that they are good places in which to live, Rut I can truthfully say from my eight: years of experience in farming in Southern. Alberta, these slates are not to be compared with it. Kspeciaily as to opportunities for those who have limited capital and who want to get ahead. People here in Michigan who have to keep their stock up and feed them cosily hay and grain, will scarcely believe it when I loll them that stock live out on the prairie anil do well in Alberta the whohf* year. They are astonished when I tell them'that good land can tie bong lit on easy terms for from 5^0.00 to ? 50.00 per acre that will produi-o ("10 bushels of wheat withom any fertilisation. 1 tell them they ought to go hungry if they slay and work in the cities at. wages that will give them just the bare necessities of life and in many cases not that. After they know whore they can gei, cheap land that is almost groaning to he broken up and cultivated and will produce enough for their own use and feed the world beside. Millions of acres of the most fertile land in the world lying idle and millions o� people going hungry every day. Is there not some way the two may he brought together? The man and the laud. Where is tho benefactor to the race who is big enough to accomplish such a result. Kvery time I ride over plowed fields and tlunk of ing nations of the earth, what can be done to change such an inconsistent condition of affairs in a world of intelligent, civilized beings. L. 13.

LITTLE EFFECT LOCALLY I the construction of large numbers of freight cars in all factories which are at present idle. It is further contended that immediate steps should be taken to force railroad companies in the United States to return to Canada all freight cars belonging to companies in the Dominion.  The committee thinks that the transportation of corn from the United States should be begun at once and surplus hay in Canada sent to the United States. STRIKE CALLED OFF St. Louis, Mo., Feb. 8.-A five day strike of 3,000 motormen and conductors of the United Railways Company, which demoralized traction transportation in this city, -was called off early today. t those un-the starv-1 wonder ST PARTY DRAFTEES Annapolis, Md., Feb. S.-The Maryland legislature has practically ratified the federal prohibition constitutional amendment. By a vote of 58 Lo 42 the house joined the senate last evening in approving the, report of the temperance committee in favor of ratification. An amendment provid; ing for a referendum to the people to vote on the question was defeated in both houses. The ratification resolution7 is advanced to a third reading in the house by this evening's vote and its passage is assured. Local general offices of the C. P.

As wheat and coal are the two large commodities moved on this division the order will make very little difference in freight traffic The way freights will he taken off and. put to work hauling coal. The movement of wheat is very light just at present, there having been an embargo for a long time on shipments to Fort William, the local mills throughout the west being the only outlet from the elevators. "It is a touch of real war conditions as they are feeling it in bther parts of North America," said a railway official here of the order. i Whitby, Ont, Feb. 8.-Upon instructions of the town council corporation, workmen have begun today cutting down shade trees on the streets to burn as fuel.
