Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 24, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta .THUBSDAY, JANUARY 21,1018 THE LETHDnrrroK D;vn.t nKHALD MY 1ST HAVE II "The goveinmoncii nrc crying tn the farmers for more production, asking UK to crop every acre we poislbly can, and yot lome of the people In the ctt-leH want to handicap U8 by tnk ng away the convciilenco of Saturday night Rhopplng. Wo muHt Jiave, Saturday ntght ur Bome other night on which the ihopu are open, or we will bo compelled to tako half a dny oI( every week or ao to como to town And aliop, and wo will lose production by that much." That la O. T. Lathrop's view of the Factory Act a� e�pTOB�ed before tho apeclal coinmlM^on of inquiry on Tueiiday atterooon. Mr. Lathrop talk-od Btrulght from the ahciuldor. He Raid that he often came Id from hlB farm at Grassy Lake, 60 nilles away, to do special shopping on Saturday flvenings, leaving after six oclock and arriving tti' t.'me to complete his pur-vtiaoos. C. S. Creut atibatantlAtod thie evidence. He alBO said that he had six hired men. They want to shop a eouplo of ttmek'a month and he u�unlly rIvos theitk a horse and rig on Satur-dly oven'ngs to come to town for that purpose, if the shops were not open tMy would want to shop anyway and would ask for time off during the duy, and would thus lose a day or two a month. He thought it would-be unfair to clone the stores on Saturday evenings while the wor Is on. Miss Pe�rBon for the clerks protest-�d against the. 12-hour shopping day, on Saturday so far as tho lady clerks are concerned, stating that the long day was norve-wrcckL^g and ought to be abolished. She made a strong picn along this lino. That was all the evidence heard during tho afternoon sen-slpn and tho commission left for Calgary during the evening, NOTimiE III Det^it, Mich., Jan. 23.-Although nearly a score of persons ,ihad bpen taken to police headquarters and Questioned during tho d�y, no trace has been found pf the �66,000 in Jewels and cash taken by three men who yesterday held up tho downtown Jew Scandinarta eomoa Mporta lleirlDg that canditiqns -ara, |rfT�# of Hapar-andn, have proved ti.^relUbla'so fm-quently that thejr may, well be* race! ved with caution.

Sartdkoff and other leaders of the opjpcisttloh to the Bolshevlkl have arrived iii Petrograd from the Don and that severe fighting is in progress. It is reported the Bol-slicvlki have hastily summoned 2000 sailors from Halslngfors and Kron-stadt, arid that warships In tho Neva are taking part in the encounters. Another report from tha same source says the situation la rapidly approaching a cllnias but malcea no mention of a poncerted movameht or or actual fighting. It adds that events of the gravest Importance are Impending. TiaiHlEGISlATiON ISHASIYPm Says U. V. A. Committee in Presenting Report to the Annual Convention SHELL PERFECTED Will Be of Gre^t Value'in War Against Hun Submarines Wash;nKton, Jan. 23.-Tho non-ric ochot slioll, a weapon as deadly as ihn depth charge, la Ihd newest devJco' perfected by the navy ordnance experts for uso against German submarines. Tho new shell dives when It strikes the water, instead of bouncing, as do the ordinary missiles, Trhdiigh the use of .n new fuse tho charge c^n bo madn to explode on contact with a solid surface under tho water or at a pre-do terniined depth. The value of the latest anti-submarine weapon lies i^ the fact that rfliota which fail slightly short will be ot as much effect as those which register direct hits. Pursuing its course beneath tho water, tile shell' will ex- ! ploilo,asalnat the side of thesubmerg- ' cd submarine. : STEEL-SHIPBUILOING Ottawa, Jan. 23.--No fnrther^ an nouncement with regard to tho government's shipbuilding' progromme elry store of nalph Dewey.
