Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 13, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta VOLUME VI. Lethbridge, Alberta. Monday, January 13,1913 PRICE-FIVE CENTS Number 27 LETHBRIDGE-WEYBURN LINE WILL BE FINISHED IN 1914 C.P.R. Will Build 175 Miles this Year Linking Up in 1914 KIPP LINE Likely Tie In at Brant-Will Spend $100,000 in the City While the C. P. R. have not yet announced their construction program lor the western lines, a local party, who returned yesterday from Winnipeg, claims to have authentic information as to the plans of the company for Southern Alberta this year. Approximately 150 miles will bo built westerly on the Lethbridge-Wey-burn line. This will bring the line from the Weyburn liny as far as the boundary between Alberta and Saskatchewan. Twenty-five miles more will bo graded on the western end of the branch east of Stirling. Steel will be laid on this part of the line, which will be put in operation next year. The work of track-laying on the. 25 Miles already graded will start early In tho spring. ' The gap between the eastern and western ends of tho branch will be constructed in 1914, and there will then be another through line to Winnipeg from Lethbridge. The gap to be completed in 1914 will be about 05 miles. It is apparently the desire of the company to have the line completed in time for the opening of the Panama Canal in 1915. There .seems' to he:'some doubt about the plans of tho company so far as the. Kipp-Suffield line is concerned,, and bo far as could be learned, the line will not be constructed from Kipp to Retlaw, north of Taber, for some time. The rumor has been current for a long time that the line from Suffield would branch northwesterly at Retlaw, and would tie-in with the Aldersyde branch at Vulcan. This appears now to be the plan of the company, and the lino will be ox-tended this year either to Vulcan, or BTant, more probably the latter point. On this line the steel is already laid from Suffleld, as far west as the Bow River, and tho material is now being hauled for the bridge. The extension of this line to Kipp, however, has not been abandoned, and will eventually be constructed. Locally, however, Lethbridge is to benefit by the company's 1913 program, for the removal of the freight f-sheds to the new site on Thirteenth street North, will mean the expenditure of at least $100,000 right in the city on the sheds and yards. The company is applying to Parliament at this session for an extension of time for the construction of their new line from Macleod to Frank, north of the Old Man River. T^iis line 'will provide a much better grade through the Pass, and is an important link in the C. P. R. southern route. AN  ? * * "> * > * O * IMPORTANT MEETING ? The annual meeting of the Lethbridge Business Men's association will bo held tomorrow night, January 14, in the Board oE Trade rooms. The meeting assumes added importance from the fact that besides annual reports and election of officers, the question of amalgamation with the Board of Trade will be discussed and action probably taken. The importance of this meetiug should apnenl to all members of thfe association, and a large attendance is urged. * > > ? > MEDICINE HAT WILL HAVE BIG Y.M.C.A. Medicine Hat, Jan. 13.-At a largely attended meeting of the business men of Medicine Hat today at a luncheon in the Cecil Hotel, it was unanimously and enthusiastically decided to pro-coed with a campaign to raise money l.o erect a modern V'.M.C.A. building hero. Mayor Spencer presided, and addresses were given by Mr. C. R. Sayer, western general superintendent of the Y.M.C.A., and Mr. Harry Bal-lantyue, of Calgary, the new western secretary. A number of business men also bpoko briefly, pledging support, am-c'jg (.hem being Sunt. Cameron, of the C. P. It.; Mr. Hopper, of the Union Bank; W. O. Niblock, and others. All said the money was available, and a strong organization will go out after it. so as to have everything in readiness for commencinib building opcra-iii ns in the spring.

Many factories have been flooded and hundreds of persons thrown out of work. The Ohio river continued to rise steadily, but more slowly today, the stage at 9 o'clock being 61.2 feet. The government forecaster predicted that the rise would continue today and tomorrow, and that probably a maximum stage of. 63 feet would be reached. Dr. Otto P. Grier, of the Cincinnati department of charities and corrections, has opened soup houses and inaugurated other means of succor. Mayor Hunt hag issued a proclamation-asking for funds to aid sufferers, and will ask the council to approve a $20,000 special bond issue, which is to be added to the fund. GREEKS' VIGOROUS CAMPAIGN London, Jan. 13.-A Saloniki despatch  to the Times says that the Greek government has decided to send another Greek division from that town to Epirus, in order to hasten the campaign. The Burns' Fire Is Still Burning Calgary, Alta., Jan. 13. - Losses arising out of the destruction of stock and buildings of the P. Burns packing plant yesterday will total approximately one million dollars, said Manager Black this morning. This is fully covered bv insurance. The company lost 4,000 carcasses, but they will be able to take care ot their business just the same, as they have a large herd of cattle in close nrox-� imity to Calgary, which can bo drawn V V > v v > > ;> ?

The (lames arc still in evidence and it is beared that I tho slaughter house may now he con-' sumed. Should this happen there, will be a heavy additional loss, as there are thousands of barrels of la>.d hi addition to expensive machinery. Against the ravages of, the fire ttie efforts of Calgary's first class fire equipment availed nothing on account of tho totally inadequate' supply , of water. This phase of the matter lias stirred the citizens and as a result there is not the slightest doubt but that �mmediate steps will be taken to instal a new hieh pressure system. Prominent business men are emphatic as to the urgent necessity � of the watfr ouestion being properly settled without ally delay. j This mornini there ' was nothing left of the once splendid plant but the slaughter house. The concrete walls of the main buildins: .offered no barrier to the devastating flames which worked with great rapidity, devouring everything aided by the grease from the quantities of bacon and carcassos of pork . and inutton which were stored there. ' :�' . The lire brigade is still on the scene and all oilorts are now being, made to prevent the slaughter house from. catching lire. It; is thought' likely j that it Will be saved.- .. .' I To keep one hundred and forty men employed through the long winter months is a hard task for Warden Rivers, of the provincial jail, but the problem seems to have been solved. The department has arranged for the installation of a broom factory at the jail, and from now on the curlers of Lethbridge and district will always be sure of a good supply of brooms for the roarin' winter sport. For the past year the provincial government has been, considering the installation of a broom factory at the local prison, but it was only recently that the decision to do so was arrived at. Part of the machinery is now here from Toronto, while the remainder, together with ten tons of brooni corn, has arrived from Areola, 111. The main reason for the installation of the factory is to provide a winter job for the prisoners, of whom there aTe now about 140 at the jail. In summer it is easy to find work for them, when the department of public works employs a large number on road construction. Warden Rivers does not believe that there will be any objection to employing prisoners in the manufacture of brooms. It is one of the big industries at the Central Prison, Toron-to, and as there is no broom factory in Western Canada, they will not be competing with free labor in any sense. It is intended first of all, however, to supply all the government buildings of the province, but if more can be made than are necessary -for this purpose, a . outside market will be found. An expert broomrnaker will arrive shortly from Toronto, who will instal the machinery and take charge of the work. It is testimated that between eight and ten dozen brooms will be manufactured daily. If the market 'warrants it, the factory may be kept in operation the year round. COAT IN HOCK Gone but not forgotten, F. II. 'Stevenson, giving his address a� Holland Landing, Ontario, and claiming to be a commerc'al traveller, presented himself ot the local police hejdquar-ters Saturday morning and applied for a position on the police force. Chief Davis informed the man that there were no vacancies, and -huth.s services would not be required. Stevenson thereafter went on his way and the same oveuing 'a report came to the police that a toan named Stevenson,had lost a coon coat. Stevenson, who was staying at a hotel, it is alleged hung up his coat in the corridor and stepped out for a stroll. When ho returned it is further alleged the coat was eone. The matter hazing been reported to the "police Sergt. Kroning was detailed on the caso, and after investigation discovered tho coat in a second hand store where it was sold bv Stevenson. The' coat, which is valued at $125, is� still yi the hands of the police,, and so far\ Stevenson has failed to put in an appearance. The case is a mystery motintima. � � � \ Charter Disposed of Council Will Get Busy on Power Problem "Will the city appoint an industrial commissioner to carry out its industrial pollcyV" That question was asked Mayor Hardie thin morning, but he was unable to give a definite answer. "I am hoping that tho new charter will be off our hands this afternoon, and then wc will be ab!*> to go into the industrial proposition fully. I could not say whether cr not we will appoint a commissioner for this purpose, as I have not yet consulted the other members of the council. "However, before we touch the industrial policy w-e must first find out what we can sell power for, or what we must sell power, for, {o compete with other places. I have been working cn it for a few days, and have compiled a lot of data, but I think I will turn it over to Aid. McCambly, who will have the whole matter in ha'.d Once we know where we are at on the po'wer question, we will get dovm to business on the Industrial pciicy." Tiie Mayor has received all the en-quiri-ef. which have come into the Board of Trade office of late, and will have at out a dozen prospects to work on . IS STILL ON ROCK Halifax, NT. S., Jaa. 13.-Despite all attempts at high tide at noon today to tug the steamer Uranium off, ' she remained hard and fast on the I reef nine miles below Halifax. There i | was a Tavorable northerly wind when the steamer Lady Lauricr made the j first effort, and the Uranium aided by | working her own screws hard astern, i but to no effect. Should the wind >remain favorable, the vessel is not in a j dangerous position, and it is intend-I ed to lighten her this afternoon. | Should an unfavorable breeze arise, then there is a distinct danger that the ship will be lost. The weather is now favorable, however, and the indications point to a moderate sea. The captain and crew are still on board, and express the utmost confidence of saving both ship and cargo. There arc seven and a half feet of water in No. 2 hold. Otherwise the vessel is sound, as before she struck. NO. 514 CPA EXPRESS DERAILED ONE MILE WEST OF BURMIS DUCHESS BETTER Montreal, .Tan. 1?,.--The following bulletin was issued in regard to the condition of her Royal HighneHs the Duchess of Counuught from the Roynl Victoria Hospital at t'J.30: "Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Connaught passed the best night last, night since arriving in the hospital.

D.

An attempt is made to fasten the onus for the hissing on "Englishmen." The Herald has investigatted, and has' no hesitancy in saying that not only were "Englishmen" not responsible, but that no one intended it It as a slur on the big Republic. According to one of the participators in the demonstration there was a "bunch" of young fellows in'the galleries, aged from 18 to 22 years, who were out to have a good time at the "sacred" concert, and to jolly the band.. Some of them hooted and hissed and as many applauded. The whole Incident seemed to be a preconcerted attempt at "deviltry," and had no direct relation to national feelings. It is decidedly unfair to blame "Englishmen" for every outbreak against tho United States, and the offenders last night were' largely Canadians, young fellows with an exaggerated conception of what constitutes a good time, especially on Sunday evening. An Interview with father in the wood6l:'ed Is what most of them need.

Them were two motions .before the city council this afternoon, one moved by Aid. Skcith fixing the assessment at $1250 and 12 months' residence, and the S400 clause which was moved as an amendment.

LOCAL .-CB-TION IN NORTH l-S COSTING MONEY Running six miles an hour, Xo. 51*, eaatbound express ran into a switch a. mile west of Btrrmis last night and four cars were derailed, including the pullman. The engine and baggage-cars remained; on the track. "While a, few passengers were shaken and suffered slight contusions, there were only two who had to be taken to the hospital. Pullman Porter A. Morris, colored, suffered a contusion of the head, and was unconscious all night. Macleod hospital authorities report him as all right this morning. When the curs overturned, the dining-car crew were all in bed, and all suffered a severe shaking-up. Alix Newbauer, a waiter, had his collar bone broken, and a cool:, name unknown, had a hip badly bruised. With the exception of Morris and Newbauer, taken to Macleod, the other patients were treated by Burmig doctors. Just how the accident happened has not been definitely learned, but a broken rail is thought to have played some part in the upset. Superintend, ent Harshaw was on the scene as rapidly as a special could get him there, and he soon had arrangements made for the carrying of the passengers to their destination. A special was run from Macleod, and the passengers transferred to the trains on the west side of the spill.
