There is one outstanding tiiought left in the minds of. nearly everyone who saw and listened to him, and that means practlcajly evei-y man, woman and child in tjetlibridge: his enthusiasm for his work, his hearty interest in the "boys," and his desire to advance their interests, whether lu training here the firing line In Kurope, Is absolutely sincere and true. iHe has guided.the military destiny of Canada with a loving ^hand, and it is no 'wonder that the Canadian soldiers deeply admire and respect him. The first tiling that Major-Generai Hughes did upon his arrival in Leth-hridge, showed his calibre to be Vi.a. After meeting Mayor Hardie, and shaking hands with the members of tile reception committee, he strode up tji.e platform toward the engine to in-,c|,uire after the welfare of the engln-ar-.who hafl brought bis special, to Ijetbijildge on the dot, and to thank' him for. a safe trip;, � ;.;in�p,ected Detention Camp ife M'as then escorted, with Colonel -Gnifliflliiuiks,-officef' commanding Mil- ------ ^Jng the local battety. of ar^ coll. , . _ . . . . . - - till.Qry; .�Captain McMlllen, and the citizens'' cQmmittee, to a Henderson Park special" car, which'had been decorated profusely 'with Union Jacks. From, the end of the car line he was conveyed to the e.vhlbition grounds where the soldiers are now quartered in Fire Chief Hardy's car. His first move was to inspect the guard, under Sergt.-llajor Jiidsou, outside the detention camp. He then proceeded to listen to a,few complaints from the German, Turkish and Austrian reservists held in bondage here; He found 101 prisoners of wav, gathered from all parts,of Alberta. �� Severa'l Germans thought thay were being held unneces-' Barily, but not . so,. JTaJor-General Hughes, who put this test to them unexpectedly: "Yoii are much better off , hero,-where you iiavie plenty of food and good 'warm ibeds, than you would be fighting the Russians on the battlefields o'f Europe." The German jaws in front of him dropped several- notches at this remark, and the owners thereof will continue to view the outside from the inside. . The local troops were lu line in the main exhibition building, awaiting In-specticn, and the Major^eneral was given th^ salute, and greeted with a bugle-call upon his appearance. .
