Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 29, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta VOLUME VI. TEN' PAGES Lethbridge, Alberta. Wednesday, January 2J), 1913. PRICE-FIVE CENTS Number TURKEY S! T Allies Abandon Hope of Reaching Terms With i Young Turks WILL FIGHT RESUME General Opinion is That Peace 'of Europe Will Not be Disturbed FOR TUESDAY NEXT NO PREVIOUS ANNOUNCEMENT -TOTAL IS BEING KEPT A STRICT SECRET London, Jan. 29.-The note drafted by the peace delegates of the allies was- delivered by Stojan Novako-vitch, of the Servian delegation, to Rechad Pasha, shortly after noon to-tiay. The determining i'actor Impelling the allies to this course of action was the receipt of reports during the night and; again this- morning of grave fer-ment-among-the-Tu'rkish troops stationed on the Tchatalja lines, a large portion of whom appear to be unwilling to follow the "lead of the Young Turks.  It is considered herc in view of the international complications in Turkey, Mahmoud Shefket Pasha, the new Grand Vizier, may yield, before the energetic action of the allies. The gravity of the situation at Constantinople is shown by the large naval forces concentrated by the European-Powers at the entrance to the DaTdanelles. Even Austria-Hungary, which, in the past, has refused to join the other; Powers in naval coercive measures, has now ordered two warships to be in readiness to start for the east at any moment. While the clouds are gathering ov-ter Donatantinople the' astronomers' who make a study of the European lirmAuient, consider that-' |)eace of Europe is no longer; in danger. As''a.proof of this- .their-, point oUt that'Italy has just disbanded an arltiy' of 10O;O00^S6ldiers who served in Tripoli. ... .r . *r.-v-*i. . ^Rechad Pasha this'morning express-1 ^Id the hope that the Powers,' realizing 1 "the unfair treatment which has been inflicted on Turkey" would help the Porte to surmount its -present difficulties, "thus insuring the- definite political -economic settlement of the whale eastern problem." Several members of the Bulgarian peace mission left London today, including T,- Theodoroff, the Bulgarian 'minister of finance. The text of the note! to Rechad Pasha, handed him by the Balkan dei-ogatss follows: .> issue of $1,000,000 'ffew -stocK '? with the citizens lighting the na- j at 200, to shareholder^.^* tutal concerli- in-ealgary, 'amt cord on Febniftry,..1.5../;,TherLBfc..TJ� ... & . ... ...h /* ^rectors were increased" from >? \ wlth SOToral Lcthbridgeitcs- assuming ^^^rfo^I�rttar^adlair--tP,!'--W."r p |a similar attitude, evident that ?

Gas Consumers' Association Complaints of the high cost of heating residences with gas have been so'i prevalent during the past few days1! that the Herald came, to the conclu-" sion something was the. matter, and investigated. And the result' of the investigation was the 'disclosure of; a movement on foot whereby the. gas users are contemplating the organization of a Gas Consumers' Associa-' tion. Evidently all is not well with the. Gas company, and the present appearances indicate that there Ayill. either be a big fight between the company and the � consumers fdt cheaper gas, or the company will deem it wise to reduce the .-price,-..Vol?' their own.-accord without takitjg.-. issue with their customers. , f�4w Gas for cooking purposes has come to stay in Lethbridge. The Herald' has talked to a large number,of gas consumers, and- in every instance there was an answer showing'.: >jjhe f customer to be perfectly satisfied with gas in the cooking ranges, ^'s! general neatness makes it desirable;,-;whilc the cost is not in excess coal. � �* ' � Taking Gas Out But with, heating' apparatus a different story is told, and- .several prominent citizens have taken � ,'the_ gas out of their furnaces because of excessive cost. One gentleman told the Herald this morning that his gais bill for the month of December was :$40, and there were few cold days'-In that, month.. Others complain,. ,of. 'bills from $20 up, which they/claim are in excess of their coal -bills, by i a large margin. Still others complain (Continued on page. 5). -wa^"'elected presideut. . ''. Hbn.

St. Petersburg, Jan. 29.-An extensive series of experiments with agricultural implements was carried out by the Russian department of agriculture during the season of 1312, with a view to putting an end to the dependence of Russia on American manufactures. Over one hundred reapers, mowers and hay, rakes manufactured in Canada and various European countries were put to work under the supervision of the officials of the department. A considerable number of these implements, according to a report issued today, : successfully stood the tests under varied and difficult conditions, notably those coming from Canada, and it is stated that they can be manufactured equally well in Canada. The department of agriculture is sending out copies of the report to co-operative societies and local government boards all over the country, as the Russian farmers are largely supplied through these sources. The government hopes to induce agriculturists to substitute other imiHe-ments for the American � machines. Seventy-two per cent of the business in this kind of machinery is now in the hands'* of American manufacturers.

The farmers,-and-in^ deed,., the townspeople, are talking' a deep interest in the lectures and ^he. discussions have been pn an exceptionally high level.- Yesterday there were very large crowds at all the lectures. In the tent Mr. W. J. Elliott, superintendent- 'ofr the - C. P. R. demonstration farms, gave two splendid lectures, and judg--ing demonstrations of beef cattle. - In the morning, he dealt with the cattle and had two fine bulls, which were used for judging and criticism. Prof. Elliott said that there was no use trying to build up a herd unless the foundation was laid properly,-and the right way that is to have, good-bulls. �'�' In the afternoon-Mr. Elliott ;dealt with the other side of .tile house, and had three fine heifers for judging purposes. His talk was followed -with keen, interest, and in the judging he complimented the farmers of the district on,their knowledge and discernment. Prof. Elliott did. not think there should, be much trouble in making Carmahgay district the centre of a fine stock country,- The Chicken Expert In .the'public hall, A. W.,'Foley, of the Department of Agriculture,. Edmonton,- talked on poultry -raising, breeding, housing and'feeding, and the-big crowd were simply delighted. Jiir. Foley knows his subject i:rom every standpoint, and the vast fund of-information he imparted was greatly appreciated* It certainly should do, much to stimulate the development of this important industry in this district. , . r At night, Mr..Foley was the princi-! pal speak�i- at a public meeting, and again told much about the poultry^ man and his business. The band was: {.vesent, and there was .another large crowd. -..: i Today the sessions again give evidence of large crowds and continued interest. : ' NO ARGUMENTS Merely Wish to Distribute Literature to Undo any Wrong Impressions Magrath, Jan. 29.-This morning-three missionaries of the Latter Day Saints' church departed for Lethbridge, where they will begin active operations at once. The party consisted of John J. Gibb, J. J. Head and J. T. Spencer, and they will likely be re-inforced by several missionaries from Raymond. From Mr. Gibb, who has charge of this mission, your correspondent learned the following: "We will canvass the city thoroughly, leaving tracts on doctrine whereever agreeable to the people. We intend to hold some meetings also, and endeavor to coTrect some of the falBe impressions concerning 'Mormonism,' and our people. . We 'will present our message in humility, and will in no way, upon anyone with whom we meet. We do not want any discussions or , debates, as it only serves to arouse feelings that result in evil on both si'Ves. We are advised to refrain from these debates, not that our religion will not stand Investigation, but because they only serve to stir up strife and contention, This we do not want. We respect all religions, and we hope the people of Lethbridge will hear the true side of 'Mormon-, iem,' and then form their final con> elusions." ,.;�-.
