Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 14, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta Lethbridge Daily Herald Volume III. Lethbridge, Alberta. Monday, February Number 51. CRIME COMMITTED BY NEGRO In Edmontpn-Murder- ed Woman and Then Suicided' Edmonton, Feb. a hole torn through his head by the passage of a heavy bullet, self inflicted, a negro named Robert McCormick, lies dead in the morgue here, while an unconscious woman, supposed, to be wife, occupies a bed in the publ'c hospital with a bullet in the base of ner skull and two razor slashes on her arm. man is responsible for the >vo man's injuries but what started the tragic affair will probably remain a secret, as late tonight physicians say secret, as late tonight physicians say the woman cannot live. The quarrel occurred shortly after 4.30 this after- noon and although neighbors heard the woman's cries and immediately ran to her assistance, they could do nothing. The first man on the scene was just in time to see McCormick fall to the noor after he had slashed the woman and fired three shots at her, and then turn the gun on himself. The last bullet he fired splashed his brains on the wall and tearing through his head embedded itself in the wood- work. The couple came here six months ago and nothing is known regarding them. The tragedy occurred in a house they occupied at the corner of Isabella street and Queens avenue, NEW MAYOR.OF MONTREAL Hon. J. J. E.

Mr. Brodeur will not be compelled to withdraw from the'gov- ernment. A fairly well defined rum- or is prevalent tonight in parliamen- tary circles to the effect that Hon. Raoul Dandurand, an ex-speaker of the Senate and one of the most pro- minent and ablest Liberals in the pro- vince of Quebec may be induced-to enter the government in the near' fu- ture, in the event of Mr. Brodcur's illness necessitating his retirement from the cabinet. COMMONS MAY REJECT THE BUDGET House Of Lords Veto Must Be Settled First London, Feb. Radicals are hopeful that John Redmond did not mean business at Dublin on Thursday on trie- ground that his language re- specting Ireland in past has not al- ways been an index to his actions in London, and they also declare that if he forced the defeat of the budget the government will resign. This is probably in belief that he will recoil from such demonstratlous consequen- ces. John Fuller, Liberal whip, speaking at Trowbridge, said he was free to admit that in the last three days diffi- culties had arisen which made it (luite possible that the commons would reject the budget. The King's gov- ernment, the navy and old age pen- sions had to be carried on and gov- ernment had to get money somehow, but one thing was certain and that was they would not tax food.

Evidently he did not see or hear the train as he drove on the crossing right In front of the train. When he did realize his danger he tried to swing the team around and succeeded in getting one horse off the track but the other was struck and killed instantly. How Mr. Smith managed to escape he probably never will know exactly, but when the train had passed he found himself standing in thc snow with one horse hitched to the rig and the other lying dead a few feet away. infuriated man.
