Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 14, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, January II, 1013 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD Page 5 10 PAY PENALTY APPEALS FHOM CONVICTION FAIL -McKENNAS DECISION DERIDED IN PARLIAMENT wept bitterly when the lord chief jus-] tice decided the law must take its , course. Home Secretary McKenna last night gave parliament his reason for not allowing the marriage. "The marriage," he said, "would probably have the legal effect of preventing the woman being called to give evidence if so required by the court of appeals. Moreover, it must he remembered, that the question of the prerogative of mercy has. to be London, Jan. 14,-Two interesting ' cohered, -I* j* impOTBiMe.1or,(^Ile.. , , , to know the.motives which prompted murder appeals came before the new- tho request \m leaVe to marr_Vi bllt ly established criminal appeal court the effect of such a marriage would yesterday, both being dismissed, have been to excite strong expres-�which means that the prisoners mak- sions of sentiment which had no ing them will be hanged within the true bearing on the prisoner's guilt.'' next few days. j Cries of "a brutal decision," greet- The first was that of John Wil- ed the home secretary's answer. � LI ES PREFER TO E5 MORGANATIC MARRIAGES ARE ALL THE GO IN ROYAL CIRCLES NOW In the other ease Edward Hope-wood, a well known city man, appealed unsuccessfully against the conviction of the murder of' Florence Dudley, a vaudeville artist, in a taxicab. Hams, known as "The Hooded Man," who was convicted of the murder of Police Inspector Walls, at East Bourne. A pathetic circumstance connected with this case is the loyalty of a young woman, Florence Seymour, to Williams. It may tie remembered that Williams, since his conviction, asked permission of the home secretary to be allowed to marry the Seymour woman before the birth of their child, but the request was refused. She was in. court yesterday with her two weeks' old infant and broke down and j BRITAIN'S BUDGET-FOR 1913 WiLL YOUR CxREY HAIRS QUICKLY VANISH A HARMLESS REMEDY, MADE FROM GARD.EN SAGE, RESTORES COLOR TO THE GRAY HAIR A feeling of sadness accompanies the discovery of the first gray hairs which unfortunately are looked upon m heralds of advancing age. Gray hair, however, handsome it may be, makes a person look old. We all know the advantages of being young. Aside from the good impression a youthful appearance makes on others, simply knowing that you are "looking fit" gives one courage to undertake and Y accomplish things. So why suffer the handicap of looking old on account of gray hairs, when a simple remedy will give your hair youthful color and beauty in a few days' time? Most people know that common garden sage acts as a color restorer and scalp tonic as well. Our grandmothers used a "age Tea" for keeping their hair dark, soft and luxuriant. In Wyeth's Sage' and Sulphur Hair Remedy we have an ideal preparation of Sage, combined with Sulphur and other val-able remedies for dandruff, itching ocalp and thin, weak hair that Is split at the ends or constantly coming out. A few applications of this valuable remedy will bring back the color and In a short time It will remove every trace'of dandruff and greatly improve the growth and appearance of tho hair. Get a fifty cent bottle from your druggibt toduy, and notice the difference In your hair after a fow days' treatment. All druggists sell It, under guarantee that the money will bo refunded if the remedy Is not exactly as represented. Agents: J. D. Higinbotham & Co. druggists. LIKELY TOTAL $240,000,000 FOR DEFENSE London, Jan. 14-According to the Daily Mall, the 'work of framing the British navy estimates for the coming year is nearly completed. � � * The one point; remaining for decision, namely, whether five or six battleships shall 'be laid down, dependr upon the Austrian naval programme. If the Admiralty decides to wait tie-fpre taking action till the Austrian ships are laid down, it may he expected to.begin five battleships this year. The- naval programme will then, according to present Information, involve an expenditure of $24,000,000, and will include five battleships, six light armored cruisers, twenty destroyers, a number of submarines and an addition to the personnel of five ; thousand men, making a total of 142,-000 officers and men. ; The battleships will be of a new type, the largest and strongest which science can build or money supply. They will displace 27,000 or 28,000 tons, burn oil fuel alone, and steam 25 knots. ! Thus they will be intermediate between the present- dreadnought battleship and battle-cruisers, They will be armed, in all probability, with eight 18% inch guns, each firing2,200 � pound shells; or. i� the 16% inch gun is not, adopted, with 15 inch guns, firing shells that weigh about 1,600 i pounds. Be.-lin, Jan. 14.-The betrothal Of the charming Princess Olga Elizabeth of Saxe-Ateniburg, to Count Charles Frederick Von Puckler, has been an-announced. "Marrying and giving in marriage" in the royal and semi-royal families of Europe seems to be almost confined at the moment to left-handed marriages, more commonly cajled morganatic marriages. There is a' perfect epidemic of such marriages nowadays, which affects principally the Austrian courts and the lesser German courts. An archduchess or a princess, dripping tears, throws herself at the feet of the head of her house, and sobs out: "Your highness, let me marry Count So-and-So, or my life, my happiness, will be ruined." "Take him, and be happy," returns the head of the house, rather bored. "But first, you know, you must renounce all your rights as one of us." So she does. So must Princes^ Olga, before she marries her Count, for the. house of Saxe-Altenburg is pround and ancient, closely akin to that of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, of which Leopold, a prince of Great Britain and Ireland, is the reigning duke. Princess Olga is said to be as amiable as she is beautiful. She is a cousin of Ernest II., Duke of Saxe-Altenburg. Her father was the late Prince Albert Henry, his first wife, who was born a princess of Prussia. Princess Olga, who is 25 years old, was born at the Chateau of Albrechts-berg, near Dresden. The man whom she loves. Count Von Puckler, is one cf the noftle Sil-esiah family of that name. ' Some of its members are immensely wealthy. Tl HANOI TWO FOREIGNERS WILL BE HANGED IN QUEBEC-CABINET REFUSES TO INTERFERE E .5 How British Courts Deal With Gamblers - Women Chip Dealers London, Eng., Jan. M.-Here is how British law deals with society gamblers. In the Westminster police court today, as a sequel to a recent police raid on a fashionable Belgrav-ia pool room, Roy MacKav and Wm*. Grose were each fined $2,500 for running it. Counsel for the prosecution read several letters to MacKay from losers promising to Pay their debts, but the names of the writers were suppressed. One letter said to he from a well known society woman read : "I am going to ask you, as a great favor, whether you can let my �1,-500 stand to the end of the month, as I have practically no money of my allowance left. After all, I have been a very reliable gambler." A cheque for �800, sent bv another woman was drawn on Coutts bank and was dishonored. T STRUCK BY HUGE STONE Toronto, Jan. 13.-Donata Marrlna,' 25 years old, a laborer, was instantly killed today in a new building at 7 Queen street West. A stone for a window sill, weighing about two hun-i dred pounds, which he was carrying, 'fell on his head, and crushed out his brains.

The Cabinet Council today decided to let the law take its course in the cases of Rafaelo, an Italian, sentenced to be hanged at Sherbrooke, on Wednesday next, and of Yocovloff, a Pole; sentenced to be hanged at Montreal on .Friday. The murder crop in Canada has been unusually high of late. The foreign element are responsible for most of the crimes. During the past year no less than thlr>ty-e}ght capital cases have been dealt with by the Cabinet. PAY THE INTEREST COULDN'T MEET COUPONS ON LOAN DUE TODAY-MAY DEFAULT ON SALARIES London, Jan. 14-The decision to defiinitely break up the peace conference in London simultaneously with the presentation to the Turkish government of the note of the European powers, was reached today by the chiefs of the peace delegation of the Balkan allies. At the same time it was decided to instruct the commanders of the armed forces of the allies in the field to terminate the armstice which has been in operation since December 3. The resolution of the representatives of Bulgaria, Greece, Montenegro and Servia will be communicated to the porte in a formal note". Since December 3 hostilities between Bulgaria and Servia on the one side and Turkey on the other (have practically ceased. Greece, which did not sign the armstice pro tocol, however, has continued righting Turkey both on sea and land, with varying success. Montenegro, also, which was nominally a party to the armstice, has been engaged in the interim in many severe skirmishes with the troops forming the garrison of the Turkish fortress of Scutari, which shows no sign of yielding. It is believed that the Ottoman troops there, most of whom form part of the regular army, are fairly well provided with food and ammunition as Scutari was always a great centre of the grain trade and contains a large arsenal. Janini in the south of Epirius, was the rallying point for a large force of Turkish troops who escaped from Monastir and. other places in Macedonia and Albania. The Greeks, have closed all' approaches to the fortress from the south but to the north and west the communications are still open and the Turks there are able to obtain supplies. Conflicting reports as to conditions in the great fortress of Adrianople, are current, but it appears evident that the Turkish troops and  inhabitants of the city are suffering greatly from disease and lack of. supplies. They have been besieged ever since the last week of October by the Bulgarians who have since been reinforced by large bodies of Servians fresh from their victories on the other side of the peninsula. SPRUNG A LEAK $10,000 DAMAGE DONE TO STOCKS IN THE ROGERS BUILDING, TORONTO Toronto, Jan. 13.-The bursting of a sprinkling system tonight worked damage' by water to the extent of $10,000 to the stock of four firms in the Rogers building at 71 Wellington St., west.

The break in the system occurred at the top of the building,and the water had been pouring into the building ior some time before it was tlifscavnrad.

Six companies more of this play har-e been organized, and, contrary to tradition, "The Rosary" is repeating its last year's-succeas. The unequalled character of the Catholic priest in "The Rosary" leads the way to success for Edward E. Rose's' ideas, and the intense human interest settled in the body of the play formulates the heart interest that will bring success to such ideas as Mr. Rose, has. collected Jo tell the story of "The Rosary."........... . .

London, Jan. 13.-A dispute involving the etiquette of members of the Chertsoy ...Golf .club over the services of its professional player, W. H. Home, was aired . yesterday before Justice Coleridge and a jury in an action for breach of contract and libel, brought by Mrs. Evelyn Margaret Cavin, a Well known woman golfer, against Commander Charles Buck-land and other members of the Chert-sey club. Home is the member who recently went to New York, where, on the Cortlandt links, he is known as the "masked golfer." . It appears that a little over a year ago'Mr; and Mrs. Gavin thought they had secured the services of Home for an afternoon on thti links. When they arrived, however, they, found Home already playing with other members. Much annoyed, Mr. Gavin poo'icted the professional's hall after the latter had driven off from the first tee. A repetition of this/ act led to the matter boing reported to the club committee, with' the result that both Mr. and Mrs. Gavin were suspended.
