Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 20, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta VOLUME VI. TEN PAGES Lethbridge, Alberta. Monday, January 20, 1913 PRICE-FIVE CENTS Number. 33 WEST WIND BLOW WOODROW WILSON'S PARENTS o- Street Cars Had Tough Time, But C.P.R. Kept Trains Moving One of the worst blizzards seen hevo in years followed on the heels vt the change in weather this morn-lug, and by noon street car traffic was almost completely demoralized. An effort was made to keep the lines open, but in spite of snow plough attachments, the curs were unable to keep up their regular schedule, and Boon several were Btalled, and unable to get -bnclc to. the barns. Everyone had to walk from the business section at neon, while during the day the number ol! pedestrians on the streets was less than usual. The chinook followed close on the change in temperature last night. At ten o'clock the mercury was hovering around 35 degrees below zero, the coldest 'weather experienced this winter. Suddenly about eleven o'clock the wind veered from the east to the south-west, and although not Wowing with much force, it was enough to caus-e the thermometer to register a higher temperature. The back hone of the cold spell had been broken. Everyone welcomed the change this morning, when the mercury stood tat 16 degrees about eight o'clock. Within nine hours, the chinook had caused a change in temperature of 52 degrees, and all morning, as the frost disappeared out of the snow, the �wind kept getting warmer, until at noon freezing point was reached. It was one of the quickest changes in temperature witnessed fc/r years. But with the higher temperature came the strong wind, and the street fjars which had gone out confidently in the morning, soon found it impossible to keep to the schedules. The blue line cars encountered the drifts along Thirteenth street North first, and at ten o'clock one of the cars was across ^. > '*"' . '. . * ?

There was the usual apprehension among the C. P. R. employees over the possibility of blocked roads, but during the day no trains -east and 'west on this division ran behind time. The westbound Flyer was its usual five hours late, but this was due to delays on the eastern divisions. The south lines, which usually give a great deal of trouble went out and arrived as usual. Some trouble was experienced in the yards here, where a large gang of sweepers was kept busy clearing the switches. What street cars were running today had trouble in making contact, on account of the snow on the tracks, and the amount of "juice" escaping through the snow waa a big factor.

That a man named Grace would have so little grace as to steal prayer books from a house of worship is hardly conceivable. Nevertheless, Bernard Grace, not long out from the old sod, will spend sixty days in the barracks on just that charge, and after his term is expired, it is likely that he will be deported.' On January 17, Grace gained entrance to St. Patrick's Church, and gathered up a sample lot of prayer books, etc. He also took away with him a mounted squirrel, one of the ornaments of the vestry. He was arrested with the goods on him, and received ithe fiO-d&y sentence this .morning. Grace was at one time a member pf the street railway force, but was dismissed under suspicious circumstances. He is believed .to be a kleptomaniac.

It is proposed to combine the co-operative forces of the country, representing 2,750,000 of people, and organized labor, numbering 2,250,000 in a working fusion. Should this scheme come to ft'ui-j tion, millions of pounds sterling invested by trade unions and other affiliated organizations will be added to the $185,000,000 share capital of the co-operators, and �90,000,000 loan and reserve, backed by the ever-increasing profits on the turnover. Jt' all the present and suggested schetneli are successful, the aims and ideals of two great wings of the labor movement will 'be co-operated, and united action will be taken industrially, socially, and in legislative matters. The leading bodies in this vast scheme are the Trades Union Congress, the General Federation of Trade Unions, th� Labor party, and its allied organizations, Women's Trade Unions, the Independent Labor party, and the co-operative societies of the United Kingdom. In many respects the work of these bodies London, Jan. 20-Bulgaria, Ser-, overlaps via, and Montenegro today present- Money which is spent for eduea* ed an ultimatum to Turkey giving the ' tional and social work is often wast-Ottoman government fourteen days i It is recognized that this tremen- Balkan Allies Notify the Porte That War Will Then Ri esume in which to make a favorable reply to their demands, according to dispatches from Constantinople.

Guechofi', who told them- ' tp exercise it whenever in tho'p opinion further peace negotiatlp-ns^becamc- use-less. �' / '- ''"''''"'�v*.^., The representatives of the Balktm allies will therefore directly, notify General Savoff, the Bulgarian;. commander, in-chief, that the armistice has come to an end as, soon as it becomes apparent that there ,is no hope of the peace plenipotentiaries reaching a mutual satisfactory arrangement. Hostilities will then conrmence four days afterwards. ' . (Continued on page - . . dous venture on the part of united labor will take years to organize before any definite practical results can be effected. > The step is to be taken in the course of a few days, when the cooperative unions will meet to consider the. question, prior to calling-a joint gathering of all other impcrta,ut organizations concerned. The points j which Will come under consideration i-embrace a. study of how the organiza-{foils cf each section-can be co-ordin-atedv'fqr Educational,. industrial and parliamentary purposes, with 'what practical steps should be taken~to ' secure control of industry and .commerce, enabling the working people to solve the problem of labor unrest for themselves. Co-operative association executives are enthusiastic in their devotion to a successful issue of the movement, because they believe fields untouched: by co-operative enterprise would ;be opened, and they could enter industries which at the present moment are solely under private cpntrol. v When in working order, the scheme would not propose to purchase exist-:, ing undertakings; for the co-operative movement is always founded on its/ ,own mills and manufactories. This;' it is said, would not only form a prof-, itable investment for the funds "of working class organizations, but would at the same time be a practioai step toward nationalization of industry, and the unrest which exists, to- I day, would cease. The co-operative movement  has--' been practically untouched by any outside labor agitation. It employs 130,000 persons. ^' One co-operative leader, discussing the proposition, said it 'would be^sel- ; fish if this was merely an'.ideaa;to ; seek an accession of; strength*-'for the co-operative movement. The' success of one would support the other,. and the strength of the whole Would raake the movement one .of-seltde-fence! for those in it. �h-rguisad - NO.
