Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 24, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta VOLUME VI. TWELVE PAGES Lethbridge, Alberta. Friday, -January 24. 1913 PRICE-FIVE CENTS Number 37 BUSINESS MEN ARE PROPOSAL THAT IE ALOE Quite a Number of Leading Merchants Think There Shoi Some Consideration, But Others Think City's Finances  Not Permit-Should Have Been an Election Issue In order to get an expression of | "You will get better work out of opinion from the business men in the a man if you pay him, and on trr.vt city as to.' Mayor Hardie's suggestion to pay "aldermen for'general and special council meetings, a Herald representative visited a number of the merchants. The following are their view.s which speak for themselves. J. D. Higinbothain "1 am not in favor of paying aldermen at the - present time in view . of the financial stringency in which the city treasury is." A. E. Doilman .(Hudson's Bay Co.) "The idea of paying the aldermen is all right the. time is well spent. Personally, I don't think you can expect a man to give up so much time for nothing. I am in favor of the Mayor's idea." Alvjn Ripley (Uentley Co.) "It is only fair that the aldermen should receive some compensation for their services as things go at present, and for thai reason [ am in .sympathy with the mayor's Bug-, gestion." K. i.'.

P.?, The mistress of a "murder farm": the murderess of twenty-five men and women; the baffler of the police. Is she living? Not long ago the police of the Leth-bridge district, and the newspaper men of the city were' racking their brains to get an answer to that little question. It is a long cry from Laporte, Indiana, to Lethbridge, but both newspapers and police were be-selged with inquiries as to the possibility of the cold-blooded murderess living in the vicinity of Lethtrridge. For four long weeks the newspapers held their secret. It looked like the biggest "scoop" of the year. But Mrs. Guiness has gone to-., face her Maker. At least, her residence in the vicinity of Lethbridge has been >> >, �> ? 0 .,,', ...... i> ,- FIRE DESTROYING A HUDSON'S BAY STORE Portage la Prairie, Man., Jan. 24.-At 3.30 p.m., the Hudson's Bay store at this point, the fourth largest in the west, . is burning, and will be a total loss. The damage is estimated at $50,000. , J* �J� *J* > �J# > 4 LATE ALDERMAN L WAR MAY NOI CANADIAN PACIFIC Revolution in Constantinople and Overthrow of Government Causes Heart Burnings London, Jan. 24.-The confirmation of the news of complete revulsion of feeling in Constantinople against the proposed surrender to the allies, has created the impression among the peace delegates that the war will begin Jigatn almost immediately. There are, however, two cur-rents^of opinion among the representatives of the Balkan league. One of these of these is in favor of asking Sir Edward Grey, as honorary president of the peace conference, immediately to convoke a. session of the delegates at which.-the resumption of hos-tllitieir will be declared. The other urges that the Powers should be allowed to deal with Turkey. The European governments are already in communication with regard to the situation. The view here is that the reply of. Turkey to the Note of the Powers must be awaited before any drastic action can be inaugurated. Lack of information as to the real meaning and scope of the moveme.nt :in Constantinople precludes,, in the official eye, anything of the nature of pre-emptory action. ;.f RIOtS"FOLLOW CHANGES; IfJ WAR POLICY-NIAZZAM^ASH'A---ACCIDENTALLY SHOT WILL TAKE PLACE SATURDAY AFTERNOON-WILL BE LARGELY ATTENDED V The funeral of the late Alderman McCambly Will fee held tomorrow- afternoon at two o'clock, from the residence, 639 6th St., S.j to Knox church, where the funeral sermon will be preached by ths pastes:, Rev. A. G-. Cameron. Interment will ta'je place in  the- public cemetery. - . During the afternoon, all city, work will be suspended insofar as is-possible in honor of the deceased alderman. The members of the council will march in a body behind the hearse, and it is also expected that all mo'ii-bers of the Brotherhood of Locoiiio-tive Engineers and Firemen will also, march, the deceased having, been, prominent in labor circles in the city. The Trades and Labor ..Council ter quest that all members of. local, unions affiliated with the^ council will meet to take part in the funeral procession. Constantinople, Jan., 24.-Fighting has occured at several places in the city this morning.,�. A dozen or more persons been wounded, an'd many arrests have-, been made. Great excitement has followed the killing of Niazzam Pasha, the former War Minister, and commander of the Turkish army, who was shot duTing public demonstrations here last night. 'Tallat Bey, the new Minister of the Interior, informed the European embassies that all measures necessary to insure the security of the city had been taken. He also addressed circulars to the provincial governors, explaining the reasons for the change in the,government, and calling upon the people to lend their material aid to the government. "We are determined," he said, "to defend the interests of the country, now face to- face with the prospect of a resumption of hostilities." Knyer Bey, who had taken such a prominent part in the overthrow of Kiamil Pasha's cabinet, is the popular man of the day. Niazzam Pasha's death by a shot from the revolver of Enver Bey or Tallat Bey, is believed to have been accidental. The officers, in order to protect themselves from the fire of Niazzam Pasha's aide-de-camp,' who had 'shot at them from a window, drew their revolvers, and emptied them, at him. A bullet struck and kill ed Niazzam Pasha, who was seated inside..the room. ,' � Constantinople, Jan. 24.-The funeral .of Nazim Pasha, who was killed, tast night, took place this morning. - The new Grand Vizer and Minister, of War Mahnmond Schefket Pasha, an old comrade of the dead commander-in-chief attended. LIKE REGULATIONS PEDLARS OF MEAT IN CALGARY HAVE TO HAVE MEAT RIGIDLY INSPECTED Calgary, Jan. 'J4.-Some of the farmers, who have been in the habit of slaughtering cattle and hogs at their ranches, and bringing the meat into the city for sale, are protesting against the regulations which are now in force since tho public abattoir was opened. / The clause they particularly object to is that which compels them to bring In the organs of the animal slaughtered and show them to the city inspector at the abattoir before the meat can be sold. The Health department looks upon this as one of the most important of the provisions of the bylaw. Unless the inspector has an opportunity of viewing the organs of the animal he will not be in a postion to detect disease in all cases. Cases have been known where diseased animals have been killed and the meat sold in the city. The farmers who have good, healthy animals to sell will not likely make any serious objection to the regulation, which is absolutely necessary in order to safeguard the health of the community. Sir Thomas Shaughnessy After Three Days Deliberation Approves Policy of Mr. Bury for Extension of the Big System in Western Canada-Details of Lines to be Built Montreal. Jan. l\.-The annual ap-priation tor western lines has been taking the attention of Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, president of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company for the past three days. The appropriations had all been passed upon by Vice-President Gecrge Bury prior to bis departure for Japan on a vacation of six weeks. The appropriations were, therefore, placed before the president by Grant Hall, general manager of western lines. After many hours of consideration by -Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, Mr. Hall is able to announce the following work to be undertaken on western lines this year. The policy of Vice-President Bury, concurred in by the president, is that the terminals shall be increased, and the main line double-tracked to such an extent that they can care for the-present traffic and for a reasonable prospective increase. On the building of branch lines, Mr. Bury has also a distinctive policy. Early in the year he told a delegation that waited on him, asking that the Canadian Pacific Railway build a branch line into its city, already supplied with one railway, that he considered it a far more constructive policy to build branch lines into territory fairly well settled, but not serv- OIE'S STATEMENT ABOUT THE SEGREGATED : ?

P. R. IN, SOLID HERE ," Says He Was Not Fully Quoted -Is Opposed to Area--Giv'6s . Police Free Hand .. Mayor Hardie is of the opinion that the newspapers of the city have misquoted him in ihe controversy regarding the segregated area. He does not think bliey have done so intentionally, but it worries him that he has been placed in what he considers an unfavorable light. So to clear the atmosphere, he handed the Herald this morning a written statement of his position in the matter. It says: "A half a truth is often worse than a lie. I said during the campaign that if 1 had my way and it were.possible I would -stamp out vice in this city. Those were my views then.. They; are my vjews now. .. ' �.. I was in favor then of, the Chief; of Police having an absolutely, free hand; I am still of the same, opinion. "' "I have endeavored to look at this subject of vice from every view point and have consulted all classes of citizens with the single view of the-council helping the Chief along;,the lines that would give the most satisfaction. This is, always haa been, and always, will be 'dirty linen' that must necessarily soil the fingers of those who touch it. I was touching it so lightly that I thought I might escape, any taint but it appears that I was mistaken.

Mr. Bury considers that every farmer that is given an advantage over what he now possesses in placing his products on the market is adding an asset to the country. To reach the farmers that now have to haul their products beyond what is considered a reasonable distance to enable him to compete with one who has been in the country a much longer period is, Mr. Bury thinks, doing something that will encourage the man who is. on the ground, as well as the man who contemplates coming. In addition to the new work on branch lines and the double-tracking, many of the lines now in operation will be improved, and laid with heavier steel, Toad bed improved and additions to smaller stations, and general improvement to yards and passing tracks. A Busy Year Altogether, it will be one of the busiest years the Canadian Pacific Railway Company has ever had in building and improving. New lines to be built, 532. Miles of double-track, 280. Last year there was put in operation in the west by the Canadian. Pacific Railway about 450 miles of new lines. In addition to the new.-lines placed in operation the great bridge at Outlook was finished, thus -completing a practically new line from Moose Jaw to Edmonton. The -outlook bridge is over three thousand feet long. The big shops at Ogden are now enclosed and steps are be- : ing taken to nut them in operation. Itto is estimated that the population of the Calgary district will be increased by ten thousand by the opening, of the !( shops. The high level bridge at Edmonton is'7.5-per. cent, completed, and will,:; connect-the-two sections- of the "city! tpr both', railway/and highway traffic.,'; At .Fort William, the company has.; completed a million-ton coal handling:; plant, and bridges across the river &t;, that place are nearing completion, ; thus placing the terminal there in po-. sition to care for the immense traffic now coming from the west.
