Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 20, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESDAY, j|EBRUARY 20, 1917 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE THRES SUES THE FOR TEN THOUSAND; HE E ROCK IN HOUSE The Sporting Editor in In bad with the management. He has a ten thousand dollar libel, action hanging over hie head, and "he axe is likely to fall at any minute. It all arose out of a curling game at Claresholm, when A. E. QUayle of Carmangay was sadly slammed by the report that he got one rock out of a round two dozen Into the house. He wants 10,000 bones because he claims he got at least'three by actual count into the magic circles. As balm to his wounded feelings, his solicitor is demanding the ten thou., and goes after it thUB-l.v: :;; - Carmangay, Feb. 17, 1917. W. A. Buchanan, Esq., Editor, Lethbrldgev Herald, Lethbrldge, Alberta. Dear Sir,-Mr. A. E. Quayle has requested me to write to you, demanding payment of the sum of ten thousand dollars, as damage for a libellous statement contained in the issue of the Lethbrldge Herald- dated February 16th, 191J. Your paper contained the statement that during the whole course of a turilng game at ' Claresholm, Mr. Quelle succeeded only once in getting a rock in the ring. Mr. Quayle tells | me that this statement is a' icoss I fabrication, and that he succeeded in getting a'rock in the house at least I three times. I You will readily understand what a {serious, breach this has made'on Mr. Quayle's feelings. "I" think that mod-jerate is no wofd at all to apply-to his demands. I may say that Mr. Quayle feels that such a prominent member of the Liberal party as you are will justify his right to the name of "Liberal," and will settle as best befits a man carrying such a title. ' I shall be pleased to receive your cheque in due course. There is, of course, no question of bias about this letter. Prejudice is entirely absents Yours very truly, P. H. RUSSELL, Solicitor, Notary, etc. STRIKE IS OFF Eight Fraternity Players Their Signatures On Contracts Put Chicago, Feb. 19.-Eight members of'the Chicago Nationals who had refused to sign 1917 contracts because of the Baseball Players' Fraternity, and unsatisfactory sal-arias offered to them, came to terms with President Weeghman today.

Do you overlook their business to protect the people?" Dr. Blow: "I know, but the B. D. & B. C. desired the railway commission to allow them to charge moun-i tain freight rates although they were operating in a prairie country." Mr. Mitchell: "-Have the railway commission fixed these charges " ' * Dr. Blow: "It is not a matter of W what-charges were fixed; this is a prairie country." Mr. Mitchell: "Are you prepared to make the statement that the present rates charged on the E. D. & B. C. equal the rates charged on the mountain division of the C .P. R.?" ] Mr. Michener intervened with the object that the member for (Salgary south, should not be interrupted by this questioning. I - Mr. Mitchell: "He made a state-' ment, and I was trying-to find out if he was willing to stand by it." "I will tell you a little more," said Dr. Blow, but lie did not answer the question of the provincial secretary, and the little more he had to Bay on the rate situation was a statement that the rates on fish were more than on the C.P.R., 39 cents for 18'l miles, against 39 cents for 200 miles. I Proceeding, Dr. Blow contended that the cities and towns were not being fairly treated in the matter of taxation and that the schools and hospitals had not been supported as they should. The people in the towns and cities, he said, had to maintain schools that the. people of '.the' country districts could have their children properly educated. j Before concluding, he reverted to the railways again and asserted that the province had not security in the McArthur lines for the. money guar-, anteed. .  i S, B.

HARRY HOLMAN, MANAGER was challenged by Hon. C. R. Mitchell with regard to rates he quoted as be- j ing in operation on the E. D. & B. C. railway. He said they were practically mountain rates but when he was asked if he would stand by that statement all he would -say was that he had got the information in some office and. abruptly- left, the subject. Both the provincial treasurer and Mr. Puffer pointed out that the rates had been j authorized by the railway commission and that no' doubt the commission had had regard to the - fact that the lines in the north country were not yet quite completed. Dr. Blow dealt withjthe railway policy of the government and said that the railway expert for Alberta was J. D. McArthur. For years they had been endeavoring to find out who his associates were but unsuccessfully, air profits .on construction went to J. D. McArthur, but profits on construction on the C. P. R. were turned over to the company. Dr. Blow asserted that the freight rates on the E. D. & B. C. railway were 30 per cent, more than on tbe C. P. R. ThiB was because the railway was only worth 60 per cent, of what had
