PRICE--FIVE CENTS Number 24 LETHBR1DGE HAD ITS SHARE OF CRIME IN THE YEAR PAST Chief Davis in Lengthy Annual Report Presents; Interesting Fact3 for Consideration Oua of the most interesting; annual reports of the year is that just issued by Chief Constable Davis, giving ti resume ot the police department for the .year. The police department made history in 1912, and Uic following comparative statement carries much of general interest. The report follows: ' Chairman and Ulemlters of the Police Committee: Gentlemen:-I have the honor to �submit to you herewith a report, of the police department for the year ending December '' * ff .> * .J.

I), He ingratiated himself and for  a time they lived together there. Then, by holding out bright prospects in Wes ern Canada, and by making her grand promises which he could never fulfill, they came together- to Letbbridgc, and according to her story, it was their intention to take up land. In the meantime he had also promised to marry her and mak^ her position right before the world. Arriving at Lethbridge they took up their residence at 1208 2nd Ave.,' S. Then it began to dawn upon Mrs. Cardwell that Hannigan had other designs and never intended to marry her. He kept her,, she says, a virtual prisoner, took all her mouey, and did everything in his power to prevent her from communicating with her North Dakota friends. However, about Christinas she managed to get a letter past him to her relatives in Towner, in which she explained^ her precarious position, and advanced the opinion that Hannigan had brought her to Canada for immoral purposes. She implored her friends to aid her to escape and. return home, out of the clutches of her quondam friend. J. D. Cornell, attorney at law at Towner, was put in possession of tho facts, and immediately wrote Chief Davis apprising liiui of the circumstances, and enclosing a draft for $30, which was to be given to Mrs. Cardwell to buy a ticket home for herself and her little seven-year-old son. Detective Kroiimg was detailed 'on the job, and last night went to the house where the woman was a prisoner. Tho detective assigned the role of collector. Going to the house, he inquired for a man named Smith, j and being told by -Hannigan that he did not known the person sought, Vc gained time bv �s''!ng for � drink of water. While Hannigan was a"s-nt on this errand of mercy, the p',5eer whispered to Mrs. Cardwell that tho chief of polico would be pleased to sec her. PROPOSED AREA OF GREATER LETHBRIDGE GLOBE ADVISES A Significant Editorial in Chief Liberal Paper in Ontario this Morning REDISTRIBUTION Demands Extra Seats for West and an Appeal to the Country i I Toronto, Out., Jan. 9.-As a prelude to what is regarded here as a Liberal attempt to force a general election, the Globe this morning editorially says in part : ___"Shall the Liberal party so set"'Ha course in parliament that Mr. Borden will be farced to take the vcr-dict of the people on his naval policy. It becomes increasingly evident that not a few of the leading members will return to Ottawa next week strongly in favor of demanding a general election. The Globe is strongly in favor of demanding a i general election. The Globe i;-t J strongly of opinion that the Liberals . in the commons should take upon themselves the duty of preventing thb passage of the measure rather than . leave it to the seuate to reject thn bill. If dissolution is rendered inevitable it is probable that the government will not prolong the present, session. An endeavor will he usule by the Liberals to secure for the West the representation to which it Is entitled in the councils of the nation'. The Conservatives claim that half of the twenty additional lncm-i hers from the West would be follow~ j ers of' Mr.-.Borden. If they think so, there can be no party reason for refusing to: introduce and adopt a measure' of "redistribution'' before the election. There is no Reason why the navy, issue should settled by thi> people early in April. Still the opportunity to make good his pledge may be at hand." FIRST BIG REAL ESTATE DEAL THE OF YEAR MR. D. J. WHITNEY BOUGHT 50-ACRE TRACT OF FAIR- ' FIELD FARM FOR $25,000 Map showing Greater Lethbridge as agreed upon by the 1912 council and the CP. R. officials. The 1913 council does not seem disposed to ratify the new limite. New area is a little over 6500 acres-old area 4048 ac res. The new limits include all the subdivisions with the exception of two or three minor additions north of the proposed lirniYs, in the neighborhood of No. 6. Mine. The village of Stafford is slated for annexation rr-uch to the relief to ihe citizens of that district,bu'c Mayor Hardie and the present council do not seem disposed to look upon the mining village with favor, as the bonded indebtedness of the village is $25,000 against an assessment of approximately $200,000. The industrial sites will be taken into the city", this step being favored by both councils. There Is a great difference of opinion about the extension of the limits and the citizens should give the council the full benefit of their ideas on the matter. The proposed new area will give about $1,500,000 added assessment at a conservative estimate.

The property, which is just across . the road allowance east of Mr. Whitney's home, was sold by W. H. . Fairfield, and is part of the firs'c farm bought by that gentleman when he came here about 12 years ago. It is understood that the price for the property is 25,000, although this has not been confirmed. The deal was put through by R. V. Gibbons & Co. In purchasing this property Mr. Whitney is looking to the future when subdivision property in that part of the, city will be in' great demand, and he believes that the time is coming shortly, for with the council, bent on securing new industries and w'r'ch the proposed railways getting nearer the city every day, he believes Lethbridge will 8001T tome into her own. It is understood that he will start in . the spring planting trees on the property so.that when it Is subdivided and put on the market it will be ready boulevarded and ; have a park-like appearance. .> > i' �> O A' �� McDONALD ON TRIAL ?
