Returning home feeling a little bet'.er he was stricken with- the third at tack and although he made a brave j light for life, death came at seven ' o'clock this morning. Mr. Kvans was a native of Smitti : Wales, iiavin^ been born about "ai years ago, and in his early Jays did a great deal of travelling. He visiteu i India, and later Australia, where in- j spent several years, subsequently ; crossing to the western hemisphere b I eating in Colorado, where he engaged j in irrigation work for years. Comin;. | .to .Lethbndgc ii .1,893..,-from, Denver ,7k; toon hold oi the irrigation work in this district and from a bald prairie with very few inhabitants tin-prosperous country of today was , evolved. i He was given full charge oi the canal system of, the Alberta Irrigation company which afterwards changed to the Canadian Northwest Irrigation company and subsequently the Alberta Railway and Irrigation company until last April, when it became a part of the C.P.R. possessions in the west. It is doubtful ii there was a farmer in this district when Mr. Evans took- hold of the work of making the country blossom as the rose and almost day and night since then he had labored for a district into which he threw his energies with enthusiastic ardor. lie was a - thorough expert in all things pertaining to irrigation and seemed to fall in love with Southern Alberta and with Lethbridge in particular. This city enjoyed his regard to a remarkable degree and alt his hopes were placed on building up a wealthy district which would make this the. big city which he believed it was destined to be. He was exceptionally popular with the farmers, having always given them a square deal and he had that tact which won his point ?nd held the closest friendship.

Grand Duke's appearance at the forthcoming celebrations of the tercentenary of the Romanoff dynasty. 1 for ihe ilrst few weeks the city charter will engage our attention," said Mayor llardie this morning. The 1912 t-iiuncil has passed into history and the, 1013 administration as on the job this morning. Bright and early Mayor Hardie was down in his ollice. and for the most of the morning was busy with the various heads of departments getting a line | nn the work where it was left off | ' U\ Mayor Hatch. j .Mayor llardie had already been ��worn in, that ceremony taking place, i tno moraine, after the elections, |w-� fore he left tor the sunny south.girlie i �(.'�� members of the city council, ( however, will not be sworn in till j ' tomorrow evening when Ihe first ; meeting of the year will he held. .It, ! wii:. however, not be the first regit- i ; meeting, as that will he held on j Monday evening hpx1 , being fixed by j ,-t,iute for the date. ! AVe will call the council together tomorrow evening for the consideration oi the charter, and at that time we will decide iust how it sha>'l be put iu tinished shape for the legtsla-j ture. There afe several clauses which have already been dealt- with bv the old council which I think it best for the new council to consider so that we may decide to take the charter from the very beginning." This morning City Solicitor Ball received word from L. F. Clarry, deputy attorney general, that if the charter were in the hands of the government by -Ian. loth, it would receive due consideration at the next session of the. legislature. This gives the new council two weeks to consider any changes which may fee' deemed necessary, but Mayor Hardie says such a short time will maike it imperative that they work very nearly every evening until that date. It may be necessary, he said, in order to facilitate the work that the council appoint the mayor and the city solicitor u committee to consider all changes in the charter, these to be ratified by the council at regular meetings. Such a course would give much more time to consider the many knotty points which are yet to be settled. There are fcivo or three points on which the last council passed judgment which will come under the .notice of the new body. / When shall the new charter take effect ? Are the city limits as decided upon by the old council satisfactory r Regarding the first question Mayor Hardie said lie was altogether satisfied, personally, with the. action of the council in having the new charter go into effect within sixty days utter being signed by the Edmonton authorities. But he' has his doubts about this being the pest, way. The mayor believed that the" work of the 1S13 council will lie in getting the affairs of the city in good shape so that when commission government comes into force i t will have a fair show. Iiy springing an election in the middle of tho year, after' the assessment has be an made, and just when the council is ready to issue the local (Continued on page' fl). That, lusty youngster, already christened 1S13. "blew in" since the last issue of the Herald in t!)12. And he blew in with a vengeance. It might likewise be said that 1912 has blown out. It was one last grand "blow out," especially for an old fellow passing into history. "Worst wind in thirty years," *ns the way Charley Hyssop put it, and Mr. Hyssop knows whereof he speaks, for he is one of the real old-time old-timers in the Lethbridge district, hav: ing lived here since the days when the wind had a free sweep from the Rockies to Medicine Hat, with only a few straggling villages to offer oppo sition.^Mr. Hyssop spent New Year's Mr. Hardie Will Be a Candidate SIR F.

That iy>nn will he Mayor Hardie. The mayor came straight out this morning and said he would be in the field. He Mas discussing the new charter at ilu- lime, and in siating that he would lite to .see the city ml good shape so that commission form of government might get a fair" trial from the very first, he intimated'that he might be putting in a good woi'd for himself personally. ; ' Then His Worship, when the.

The ravages of the wind storm, 'which ushered in the new year have not all been reported as yet, but the demolition of the C. P. R. station ~t Raley was. perhaps, the most costly. The'station was not exactly a model of architecture, but it served the purpose. It will do so no more. The 'way it tumbled about, according to stories rf passengers from the south this morning, showed that the wind was just as furious in the country south to, .Ca'rdston, as here. Over in the Rivervie-w district of the city, the wind took full advantage or its' long sweep, across from Maclew!-,-aiid hitting Mr. Asplin's residence it raised the roof off, completely wrecking it. It was thought that damage from fire might result, and a hurry-up call was put in for Chief Hardie, but nothing serious developed. Out. at. Henderson Park, the ill-fated hockey rink, which once before was a victim of the wind, went down, and piled up with the remains was an ex-shoe-shining stand, which had had a place at the edge of the lake as a dressing room for the skaters. Tho management of the sports at the lake-will do nothing until the wind subsides, and it looks as if it had subsided to stay tor a spell. The motormeu on the street railway system had no pleasant time on ' their first trips this morning, the sand and snow in the curves making it almost impossible to get the cars oveT the line. One car took nearly two hours to make a 36-minute trip, and was off the track three times. Broke Some Fancy Panes j. The Hull Block did not escape th� fury of the storm fiend, as one of the panes of decorated glass in front ot the Bank of Nova Scotia 'was bkrvn clean out. The damage 'took place between two and three o'clock- this morning, when the wind was at its height. Several of those in the apartments in the building heard-the crash and for a moment thought the building was in danger, but there did not, seein to be much cause for alavru, as this morning on examination everything was found to be intact with the exception of this damage done to the bank. Curious Tricks Some idea of the force of the storm may be gathered from the fact that the iron revolving doors at the car barns were completely put out of business, while the new fence the whole length of the Athletic Park 'was lifted clear over into an adjoining field. At the Lethbridge laundry, the iron chimney stalk, to within about twelve feet of the roof was carried clear away, with only slight damage to the roof. Eastward on- Third avenue and south along Ninth street, and on Westminster road, the wind had lashed the snow into huge drifts which clung to the sides, of residences, as if seeking shelter. Overhead the sky was black as ink, not a star being in evidence. Street cars had a hard time hauling their way over into North Lethbridge, where tbe gale played in strenuous fashion. i More Damage rl-he new Wilson Furniture store on ^ Westminster road North proved a. as nikrk, and tbe big plate glass 'wiudor. was literally blown clean out.
