Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 8, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta VOLUME VI. TEN PAGES Lethbridge, Alberta. Wednesday, January 8, 11)13. PRICE-FIVE CENTS Number 215 TIE FIGHT FOR THE SOUTHERN MARKETS President Henderson Says Nothing Less Than An Open Market Will Satisfy Farmers Who Are Now Losing Money WILL ADHERE T0-BILL OF RIGHTS O v v > > TWELVE HORSES SMOTHERED "Infant" Industries Hoary With Age and Declaring Immense Dividends on Watered Stock are Throttling the West at Present Brandon, Jan. 8.-In the course or his nnmial address before the convention of t'hu Manitoba GTain Grower:;' association, President Henderson today said as follows: "Our bill of rights as presented to parliament at Ottawa sets forth very clearly the position we take on government ownership of public utilities and tariff reform and we still contend that until the principles therein contained are put into action through proper legislation there will not be developed that confidence between all classes which is so essential to the building up of national stability and greatness. We, therefore desire to place ourselves on record as to not having swered one iota from the position then taken. We believe that our transportation facilities should 1)0 under such control, as while it afforded reasonable dividends on al capital invested, as well as proper security for such capital .would also secure to the people of tihls country reasonable passenger and express rates. We therefore express our hope that the board of railway commissioners will at. their present sitting see the reasonableness of the demands made on then) by. tho people of the west for a reduction of' tho above. � . "We are well convinced that had our trade relations wifch the market to tho' south of us been opened up along the lines marked out in our Farmers' Bill of Rights, it would have resulted in the placing of millions of dollars in the pockets of our farmers this year, millions which could have been used to good advantage in meeting obligations which at this moment are pressing very heavily upon ns and under which not a few are being driven out of business. Nothing Less Will Do "We record our most emphatic determination to press, this issue still further. Nothing less than an open market to the south of us will satisfy. � "There was a time when I took the ground that tariff to help infant industries might be beneficial and that a tariff for revenue purposes seem to have some commendable features about it. "The experience through which we have passed, in the development of this country during the past 25 years has demonstrated beyond all doubt the utter fallacy of all such teachings. The present attitude of tho interests now down at Ottawa, on their knees before parliament, interests now becoming hoary with age, interests not only paying dividends but fabulous dividends, not only on the actual capital, but also on watered stock. Claresholm, .Ian. 7.-During' the high wind storm today, O. .1. Amundsen, living on the "bast end of town, suffered a big loss of valuable horses. About twelve of his farm horses were buried beneath a large straw stack at which they were funding. The stock iiad uteri running at this stack during the winter and had undermined it. During the high wind it toppled over on the hunch, and they were suffocated. Edson Liberals Support Position of Sir Wilfrid and Colleagues ROUSING MEETING 3. N. A. BANK BURNED Uelnionl, .Man., Jan. 7.--The Belmont branch of the Bank of British North America was completely destroyed by fire last- night, occasioning a loss estimated at ?10,000. The loss is fully covered in insurance. Kxcept the contents of the safe, nothing was saved but a few books . Building Up Alberta Policy of Sifton Government is Also Lauded STEEL TRUST THREATENS TO THE U. S. FOR Are Restive Under Prospects of the Democrats Lowering Tariff Barriers OIL STEAMER WRECKED Washington, Jan. 8.-More than one big American. manufacturer sitting in the hearing room of the ways and means committee asserted yesterday that the result of-the arbitrary methods of Chairman Hnderwood ''arid the other Democrats would be to "drive manufacturers of - the/ 'United States across the border into Canada." Attorneys for Chas. M. Schwab, of the Bethlehem Steel Works in Pennsylvania, who were present to get a line on the attitude of the committee on American industries, insisted that he would aibandon the steel business altogether, so far as the United States is concerned, if the Underwood steel bill is passed by congress and signed by Wilson. As the attorneys for the steel interests watched Mr. Underwood, his watch in hand, putting a brief time limit on every witness, they became more and more irritated, apparently becoming convinced . that' the steel business would receive no bettor consideration. Astoria, Ore., Jan. 7.-The oil steam-r-r Rosecrans went ashore on Peacock Spit early today, and owing to terrific seas and a 55-mile gale which is blowing, is expected to be a total wreck. Two tug boats and the life-saving crew arc endeavoring to rescue her crew of twenty men. WILD WEST FEVER HOLLIS KILBURN. ARRESTED \ FOR ATTEMPTED "SHOOTING UP" OF TOV/N Bdscm, Alta., Jan. S.-Following the most enthusiastic political organization meeting ever held in this district, the Liberals in session here on Tuesday, passed a resolution reading as follows: "Resolved, that this meeting views �with" enthusiastic approval the attitude of Sir Wilfrid Laurier and his Liberal colleagues in the Dominion House on the subject of the naval contribution, and the alternative of a Canadian navy, in emphasizing the distinctive requirements of the -dominion, yields to no party or section in its loyalty to the Empire; "Resolved, that the meeting offers to Hon. A. L. Sifton, its heartfelt congratulations on the successful administration of the affairs of the province and the useful' legislation added to the statute books by. the Liberal government since its entry into power, and further pledges itself to give unwavering support in the carrying out of the programme submitted by Mr. Sifton and his supporters in the provincial house." Other resolutions passed were expressing the thanks of. the. electors to Peter Gunn, M.L.A.,. f,o^vhis efforts in ^ehalff&the district since'his el-ectiori.'ana to Hon. C. W.

The risk, however, was one of the heaviest ever threatened by a blaze in the. city. The. volume of smoke issuing from the building and penetrating through the structure to the third storey was very � ixreat. and the firemen worked at a great disadvantage, in getting to the origin. It was evidently caused by contact between some inflammable rubbish and. a steampipe. The basement ceiling was scorched, hut outside of smoke damage, the loss will be very small. The new fire auto truck which arrived a couple oi days ago, will be put into'commission about the first of next week, and Lethbridge t will then have up-to-date fire lighting apparatus at the main hall, the  nucleus of apparatus which will make the whole department a motor equipped brigade. The trial run is expected to be made early in the week. HONESTY IN COMMERCE London. Jan. K.--A new phase oi' the system of piracy of law designs was mentioned last, �night, to the Nottingham Chamber of Commerce. by I!. l\ Hteigh, who stated he had autli-. entic information thai, American and continental firms were receiving designs almost at the same time as the now patterns were put on the machines in Nottingham, and were 'producing from the patterns simultaneously. Evidently, he said, somebody is being bribed to send these patterns abroad.

LETHBRIDGE POULTRY SHOW WILL WINTER ON THE BOATS Ottawa, Jan. 7.-A report received today at the Marine Department states that ten million bushels of grain will be stored on vessels at Port Arthur and Fort William this winter. Six million bushels are now stored away, and five vessels are waiting cargoes. Another shooting affray occurred last evening, the scene this time being at Kipp, when Hollis Kilburn, a youth of 21 years and obviously a dime novel reader, began to blaze away with the aid of two revolvers and a rifle. Two young fellows were in Watson's store at Kipp post office. . PRICE C E HE WILL CONFER WITH THE CITY ABOUT THE 13th ST. CROSSING Tuesday next is the date set for a conference between city and C.P.R. officials on matters pertaining to the 13th street crossing. A telegram to the mayor this morning asked that a meeting bo arranged, and as this is satisfactory to the council, the crossing matter will another step forward on that date.

London, Jail. 8.-Mr. L. Ginnell, the fiery Nationalist me(mber of Parliament for We6t Meath, who alleges that the missing Dublin Crown jewels have been restored, or will be, if Mr. Augustine Blrrell Chief Secretary for Ireland, only says the word, asked in the House of Commons yesterday for 'Police Inspector Kane's report of his special mission to Ireland in 1907. When his request was denied, Mr. Ginnell-bluntly asked if Mr. Kane's report did not contain the names of Lord Haddo, Lord Ronald Gower, and Lord-here the Speaker silenced the-Nationalist, rebuking him for making charges under the guise of asking questions. Mr. Ginnell is, however, determined that Parliament will soon hear more about the miaslng jewels. The Fall of Adrianople Will Settle the Balkan War APPEAL THE A.G. The ninth annual exhibition of. the Lethbridge Poultry and Pet Stock association, which is being held in the city market was opened this .': forenoon at eleven o'clock by Mayor Hat-die, who in a brief'speech congratulated the association for the excellence of the show. The mayor took the opportunity of expressing his utmost faith in the future o� the poultry industry which he hoped would keep on developing until the country at large would be able to properly appreciate its real significance. The mayor had not the slightest doubt but that the present show would be one of the most successful ever held in Lethbridge, if uot in,the province. Ex-Mayor Hatch and C.' J. 'Eckstortn were also on hand, the former taking a keen interest in the opening speech made by Mayor Hardie. Socrctary Percy King was a busy 'man, while the judges, Ross Wallace, Calgary, and J. Shaskleton, 0f Olds, have not yet finished their task of selecting the prize winners. A Great Show There is no question whatever but that the show totally eclipses any hitherto held in this city, and it would indeed, as a matter of fact, be very hard to find anything, as good in the whole province. The casual visitor has only to cast his eyes here and there to discover that Lethbridge has actually .every-, reason to boast of a nifty exhibition. The judges themselves are agreeably surprised with tho charactsr of the entries which they say would be hard to heat anywhere. One of the finest lot of birds in the . show is the display of a number of white orping-ton's belonging to A. W'heeley, yvho lives in North Lethbridge. Another attractive exhibit is that shown by .1. Hen ton in his group of grey Dorkings, while no one could overlook one or two splendid speciments of white I turkeys.

Geo. E.

Eckslorni has kindly consent- Magrath, Jan. 7.-Further details of the proposed Latter Day Saints* temple have- arrived from Salt Lake City, the principal feature being the announcement of the plans for the great edifice and the cost, which is placed by President Joseph F. Smith, at $100,000. Jt is also officially announced that actual construction will begin in the spring, and in one year what will undoubtedly be one of the finest religious buildings in the' Dominion will be ready for dedication. Fourteen architects were invited to submit plans and specifications: for the proposed temple. They werte received on December 24 by the Preside ing Bishopric, and last week the selection was made, Pope & Burton, of Salt Lake, being the successful bidders. B'rom the rough blue prints, reproduced in the Church organ, thef'Des-eret News, the temple will be a most Imposing structure. It Is a radical deviation from the other temples of. the church, in that there is a total-absence of spires, or towers, which, atrleily speaking have no special symbolical signlfcance, hence the el- , imlnation. While the architecture cannot be identified with any historically accepted style, .it resembles tho old Grecian type, and bears a striking likeness, in many respects, to the famous Pantheon of Athens. The aim of the architects was to conform to the peculiar requirements of such a building, rather than to imitate any particular style. The Interior will be very similar to the temples in Utah, and the revealed plan will be followed to tho minutest detail. It is proposed to make the interior, the sum of perfection, and nothing will be spared to add to the beauty and magnificence of the various rooms and furnishings. All of the chambers, wherein the different sacred ordinances are observed, are fully provided for, as is also the great baptismal font, in which the vicarious work for the dead will be done by their living friends or kindred. In the Salt .Lake , temple this font is supported by. twelve bronze oxen covered with gold. The walls will he adorned with-paintings by eminent artists of the' church, and the ceilings; stairways, etc., will be richly carved and em-, bellished. There will be a spacious assembly  chambers, provided with graded sections for each quorum of the Melchizedec and Aaronic priesthoods.
