Londonderry, Ireland, Jan. -20.- The stay-at-home man of County Dor-ry is admiring such voters. as .John Mitchell of Toronto, Ont., who, within a tow hours of learning of the coming election-' started home1 to vote. He used to live in a street of Londonderry where only one other Unionist resided. The Unionist final meeting, despite fears to the contrary, passed oft Without disorder, except the firing of blank cartridges three times. The Duchess of Abercorn, wife of the late member, made a stirring speech'. * LURID STORY WAS' APPARENTLY A FAKE Yarn. About Woman Being Brutally Ill-Used Had no Basis In Fact Riviere du Loup, P.Q., Jan. 28.- Death of tuberculosis, caused'by an excessive use of alcohol, is the conclusions of IJrs. Parent and Pettigrew, who attended the wonian Desjardines, who died a few days ago in the hospital kept by the Sisters of Providence. " ' The reputation of the deceased was none too good, and stories told about her years ago were unearthed ;and enlarged to the extent that mention of crime was made. The local police who have investigated the case do not find the remotest cause for a crime in all the story, and the physicians also state emphatically that death, was caused by tuberculosis only, and that no traces of violence were found, over the body of the woman,. either, before or after her death. The woman was suffering, from tuberculosis for a long while,, and her death was absolutely natural. Several people are indignant atv the circulation oE the story of a crime that seems to have originated, in Quebec. It is not true that the .attorney-general ' has seat provincial detectives here. y; Li New Dayton, .(an. 2!).-Mrs. William Scott, wife of William Scott, a prominent farmer, here, died suddenly last evening, after a brief illness. Mrs. Scott came here five years ago from Noun Dakota, and since then had taken much interest in social and church work. Thdriving through thKCountry.i attending to oth' cr.

' v"'  of the cost of installation, and say that the actual cost is much in excess of, the estimate made by the Gas company before the installation was undertaken. The gentlemen who are behind the movement for the organization of the Gas Consumers claim that the company is not carrying out. the promises made by .its representatives at the time of the vote on the bylaw, whereby the company was allowed to raise its rates from -15 cents and 25 cents to 20' cents and 35 cents for manufacturing and domestic purposes respectively. At that time, they say, the company claimed that the fuel bill would be reduced, ciit in two, and for that reason they voted overwhelmingly in favor of the amendment of the franchise. Now, however, when they actually have their monthly accounts for comparison, they claim that'they are paying more for their fuel than when cdal was used exclusively.  : � The Company's Side To get the "other side of the story1, the Herald representative also called on Mr. Anderson, local manager of the Gas company. 'At the present time approximately 1,000,0*00 feet of gas are being consumed in Lethbridge daily. Mr. Anderson stated that the number of complaints did not number very many, that there are far more who are satisfied because, they show ar saving in their fuel bills, and that most of the complaints have already been adjusted. No more complaints are being received, he stated, than may be expected by a Bas company just starting in business, and they expected no trouble with the people of Lethbridge.
