Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 14, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta volume VI. Lethbriflge, Alberta. Tuesday, January 14,1913 PRICE-FIVE CENTS Number 28 European Note to Turkey Will Not Likely Bring Any Results ALLIES\READY ? ? ? ��>">* > DR. PARSONS DEAD ? Having 400,000 Men Ready to Resume Fight Around Adrianople London, Jan. 14.-The latest advices received by the Turkish delegates show that the Ottoman grand council has not met yet at Constantinople and that it will probably not meet. The Turkish envoys understand that Kiamil Pasha, the Grand Vizier, will in all probability, resign should the situation develop in such a wav that the grandcouncil will be called together. Observers of the situation in London express the opinion that Turkey will reject the advice of the European powers and that hostilities will be resumed. The representatives of the Balkan allies 'ieclare that they are ready to face all events. They say that no fewer than -100,000 of their troops are concentrated around the [oftress of Adrianople and along the lines of Tchatalja, while all the heavy siege batteries have been placed in position before Adrianople. Before the Tchatalja lines defending Constantinople there is a ei'eat army 0f Bulgarians who are strongly entrenched and fronting them are large bodies of Turkish troops, some of them the remnants of the defeated armies which (led before the advancing Bulgarians "and fresh troops! brought up from the. Turkish provinces of Asia Minor. The threatening note of the allies to the Turks is to he worked in such a way that it will become effective only . in the event of, the Ottoman government refusing compliance with the advice given to it by the ambassadors of the European powers. The members of the Balkan league are of the opinion that the note drafted by the European diplomat is so diluted that it requires the admixture of a vitalizing tonic and this, they think, will be supplied-by their threat to continue hostilities.

MEMBERS WHO WILL SPEAK Iff PRESUMED NAVAL DEBATE je .: m a 3L s �--74--1 C o 1  15 t h -wm s LAURIER POLICY HON. FRANK OLIVER ADDRESSED AUDIENCE AT. VANCOUVER ON NAVAL ISSUE Vancouver, Jan. 13.-That Borden's naval policy was not one" that would appeal to the loyal Canadians,, and that Laurier's idea would, was the principal point in a trenchant speech celivered tonight 'by Hon. Frank Oliver, Minister of the Interior in Laurier's administration. His main attack on Borden's. policy was that it was non-constructive, and, therefore, not a naval policy at all. It had no foundation, and did not propose to build up a Canadian navy, but simply to hand money to the Old Country. Borden's supporters and himself argued that Canada is not yet ready to maintain and man a navy. There are 62,000. fishermen on the ' Atlantic coast, and the speaker argued that on the strength of those, Canada could maintain and man a navy. Of course, Canada would have to pay a higher rate for their services, but so far as ability was concerned these fishermen are equal to any nation in the world.

Twenty-three horses were suffocated. Loss about $20,000; well insured. , HON. _ "RODOLPHE LEMIEUK. "WHITE The above are the latest pictures of some'of Canada's Commoners, who are scheduled to talk in the Naval Debate-perhaps the hottest quecilon since Confederation. The debate will probably be quite protracted. Speaking at Montreal and Fergus respectively on January 6th, Messrs. Guthrie and Letn-leux spoke of necessity of submitting ihe question to, the people Jn general elections. This Is regarded as slgnlflcept of tha intention of the. Opposition In the Comtnonia riabate. i " DEFEATED GET PREFERENCE HOPELESSLY BEATEN ONES WILL BE TRANSFERRED TO THE RED CHAMBER Business Men Suggest That Inducements Should Be Made to Secure It Reports of the destruction by fire of the P. Burns' plant at Calgary, have set the business men of Leth-bridge thinking, and it is likely, that an agitation will be started to endeavor to have the Alberta millionaire cattle king erect a plant in Leth-bridge. So far the city council has said nothing about such a move, as they have not yet: got to the point where an industrial policy has come up for consideration. ; However, several membejrs of the Board of Trade have spoken of the possibility of the Burns' Co. establishing a plant In Southern Alberta, anld It is likely that the council will be asked to make representations to/' the head of the company on his return to; Calgary, asking him to consider the 'erection of a plant here. ' During the past year the Board of Trade has at different times been in communication with some of the large packing companies, but always received the same answer: that .South6rti Albret does not yet produce- enough live stock to warrant the expenditure necessary to build a plant here. However, through the efforts of the board a large number of farmers.have taken up the hog industry, and it is estimated that next year there will be 200,000 hogs raised. in what is commonly known as .Southern Alberta, with Lethbridge as the central, point. The burning of the Burns' abattoir at Calgary will cause many of the towns along the Pass to look elsewhere for their meat supply for some time to come, and Lethbridge Is being looked to fcr at least, a portion of this supply, although the Burns' plant at Vancouver will-ber called on to meet most of the demand. The fact remains, however,' that' the mia-ing camps through1 the Pass,"and in' southeastern British Columbia are large meat users, and-it seems'logical that they should lcolt to Southern Alberta for their supply. . During the past year there has.been a general revival of the livfe stock industry In the south, and. those members of the Board- of Trade who have the matter in hand, believe that the, city council should lose no time in communicating with Mr.' Burns, and making him an offer' which would in-duce him to locate a-plant here. At present Alberta's leading millionaire has over $100,000 worth of property in the city, and this should cause him to look' on the city's request- with some degree of favor. By having two plants he would only suffer 50 per cent, of loss in the event of another fire. Ottawa, Jan. 14.-It is understood that It is practically settled that Dr. H. E. Munro, of Saskatoon,.will be one of the new, senior's from Saskatchewan. . - A Saskatchewan deputation was in the city, and. called,on several mem-, bers "of the government to press Dr. Munro's claims. .;They,.stated this appointment was almost certain. The southern appointment lis ;.he-tween R. S.'LaJte, ex'-M:P., and H. W. Laird, with the chances favoring the former.' The appointments will not be made until the bill 'before, the House is passed. ... !  There ar^w^Ojitario vacancies in the upper chamber, which is is expected will be filled; at jsnce. GOES OVER UNTIL SPRING Hamilton, Ont., Jan. 13.-Owing to the absence from the city 'over the week-end of J. J. Ross, of St. James' street Baptist Church, 'against whom Pastor Russell, of Brooklyn, has pre ferred a charge of writing and publishing a defamatory article, the reverend gentleman escaped service 0; the subpoenae which' the Brooklyi minister secured on Saturday. As Mr. Ross will not return unti' tomorrow afternoon, the case' wil not come up for trial until the sprinr assizes. ' HON. MR. MARSHALL Minister Doing Much for Farmers Will be There Friday Night Magrath, Jan. 14.-Thei short course school In  agriculture and domestic science opened yesterday at 1-30 p.m., under the most favorable conditions. It is the first school held, but it will doubtless rank among the best. Supt. C. B. Lewis, who has direct charge of the school, In a conversation with the Herald representative, stated that it far exceeded his most sanguine expectations, and he was more than gratified with the warm reception they had received here. Over four hundred attended the classes today, many coming from the outside towns. The lectures were very instructive and 'were followed closely by the students. In the large, warm tent, F. S. Jacobs, of Calgary, known widely as a journalist, as well as an expert horse judge dilated on the Per-cheron horse, treating his topic terse, ly, lucidly and comprehensively. Sev-eral fine stallions and brood mares were examined and judged, the students scoring. ' The domestic science school attracted an unusual amount of attention and the lecture hall 'was crowded to its greatest capacity. Miss Stevens and her able assistant, won the hearts of their studients directly and the ladies who were present are enthusiastic ov- \ er the splendid course. The visiting ladies are the guests, while in town, of the Farm. Worn en's Institute. ; Today, the Clydesdale will be discussed by.the'men under the guidance of Mr. Jacobs, and this evening in the town hall, an Illustrated lecture on poultry 'will be given by W. H. Foley, superintendent of the poultry branch of the Agricultural Department. The visit of the Minister of Agriculture, Hon. Duncan Marshall has been postponed until Friday evening. Mr. . Marshall is at present in Vancouver on public business, and it will be impossible for him to be here for tomorrow evening. This meeting prom- � ises to be a very interesting event, and will likely bo largely attended. Tomorrow evening will be a'merry night, notwithstanding. The local committee oh entertainment will give a: grand ball In the Electric Theatre,  the Women's Institute will serve lun- > cheon, and a real enjoyable time- is assured.
