Heavy Damages in Window Smashing Outrages Through Pospt Office Service London, Jan. 30.-Suffragettes continued 'their militant tactics , today with a further outbreak of window smashing. ..The buildings.attacked included the' 'Colonial, offtcei;. 'and the^ offices of the Hamburg-American line, which had already; suffered. At. the latter building. a window valued at $750,'the only one remaining whole from the previous onslaught, was smashed by a woman with a hammer. As was the case on Monday and Tuesday many extra policemen, patrolled the pavements. Quite a number of shopkeepers, moreover, re-in-forced this guard by stationing porters and other employees before their plate glass windows. Legal action is to be taken by a number of west-end firms in the hope of recovering from the suffragettes losses sustained by 'window smashing. The manager of. one insurance company estimates their damage on Tuesday night between $2,000 and $2,500. Since November, 1911, he said,' at least $250,000 worth-of glass had been destroyed by the suffragettes. Post Office Outrages From different parts of the country further pillar box attacks are reported, and in London twb hundred postal packets were destroyed by tar being poured into the pillar boxes on the West-end. At one post office a packet, addressed to Lloyd George, -burst into flames when opened, owing it is thought, to the action of sulphuric acid. The flames were; extinguished �before anyone was, injured. This' is the latest form of outrage invented by the suffragettes. While.-the.sorting staff of the-Croydon post office were at work tonight, several packages burst into flames, and gave off thick fumes. Tonight, when a postman cleared, the letter box at York,, a letter took, fire. It contained two glass tubes of iquid, which ignited on exposure to the .air. Similar outrages were coni-nitted at other pillar .boxes. Many '.otters containing tubes/'were addfess-3d to "Asquith, London." The suffragettes Vainly attempted to secure-admission to a hall where Mr*. Asquith was speaking at Leven. The crowd tolerated their conduct at tirst, but soon adopted a threatening attitude toward the women. Police rushed in and cleared the place. Anti-siiffragefte youths this afternoon attempted to raid the London office of the Women's Social and Political Union,: which is under the constant observation of detectives;" There were several scuffles,, between the women and the men, but the police soon succeeded in quelling the disturbance. Between twenty and thirty women were sentenced at Bow street charged with obstructing the police and damaging property during Tuesday night's disturbance. .' Chrlstobel pankhurst is apparently not in London. Scotland Yurd detectives! are'closely^, watching' all j channels. ,� ' " A TRIP- TRAGEDY Dawson, Y.T., Jan. 30.-W. F. Smith is believed to have killed his wife, and M. Kelly, of whom he was jealous, and then suicided. All three bodies have been found. A *�� A A > > �: MR. TERRILL GREENHOuT Will be Located in North Lethbridge and Cater to Big Trade Up-to-date greenhouses, with a residence'adjoining, to cost over $ 1 o.Oi.'O, will be erected by the Terril Floral Co., of this city, on Sixth avenue A North, on the spur line running out to the Royal Collieries. The new greenhouses will be of iron construction, and the equipment will be of the most approved type. Twin tubular boilers with a modern heating plant will - be installed, and when completed the buildings will compare very favorably with any in Western Canada. In. the new greenhouses the Terril Company will grow roses, carnations, Chrysanthemums, violets, and a large variety of other cut flowers, the production of which will be equal, if not superior, to any in the west. For some time past Mr. J. B. Terrill has been, casting around for a desirable location, in order to extend his present business. His decision to build in North Lethbridge is due to the fact that he feels satisfied the city can be better and more conveniently served. It is only some three yearsxago since Mr. Terril came to Lethbridge, and his business has increased by leaps and bounds until he has had to loqk after its further expansion in the shape of erecting new buildings. Just as "soon as the frost gets out of the'ground work on the new greenhouses. will commence. Mr. Terril stated to the Herald today that all the concessions he expects from the city will be water, sewer and light connections. F FOUR DAYS Pope Must Take Occasional Rest Does Not Appeal to the British Workmen London, Jan. 30.-At the meeting of the- British Labor Party today, the president referred to Canada's three battleships,and said: "Any gift which gr'eatly adds to our annual expenditure is open to criticism. Accepting the government assurance that our defensive forces are sufficient, then those three vessels must be above our requirements. Giving the colonies representation on the Imperiad Defence committee is a departure which must be thei subject of a searching enquiry." STEAMSHIP ARRIVALS The Canadian ' Pacific R.M.S. Empress of Ireland is reported by wireless off Chebucto; due at St. John on Friday evening; passengers due "in Winnipeg on Monday, and in Le'th, bridge at 3.50 on Wednesday morning- The Forecast of Budget London, Jan. 30.-In well informed is anticipated -that in bringing down'the naval estimates, Mr. "Churchill,-the Fust Lord of the Admiralty, will ask for an increase of two million pounds sterling! Probably he will ask authority for the laying down of five new battleships as the principal item of the year construction, program.. Rome, Jan. 30.-Dr. March-iaffa, the Pope's physician, has persuaded the Pontiff to take an occasional rest, and hence the audiences are likely to be suspended for a couple of days each week. There was none today. The physician insists that the Pope shall not attend fatiguing functions during the summer. He has also suggested that the anniversary of Pope lyeo XIII.'s death and the coronation of Pius X., which have heretofore been held in the Sistine chape] on January 20 and July 9, shall be transferred to November 5 and November 16. 19 Edmonton, Jan. 30.-The eighth annual convehtion of Alberta Agricultural societies will be held here on February 19 and 20. The schedule for Alberta fairs in 1913, will be arranged and the question of fair grounds and buildings for the small agricultural societies will be discussed.- TWO CIVIC PROBLEMS FOR, 1913 One year ago, the capital expenditure of the city was cut and dried. The 1911 Council had handed down a sheaf of contracts, amounting in all to nearly $1,-000,000. This year It Is different, and Mayor Hardie Is puzzling his ; head about the amount of capital expenditure, and where it should ., be spent. i - "We have'nt been thinking about the estimates very much yet," he said.this morning, "as none of the' departments have sent in their recommendations. It is hardly likely that the committee estimates will be brought down for a month or two yet." The Mayor said there was really very little call for capital expenditure this year. However, some would have to be undertaken, and this would be spent in such a way as to leave the greater part of the money in .the city. The City iingineer'e department will undertake the greatest outlay, while that of the street rait-way department will likely be very small. ROOKE'S CHANCES SLIM Dauphin, Man., Jan. 30.-Constable .Rooke. put in a rather restless night, but is feeling slightly better this morning, although his condition. oa>i. not be said to be improved. , ' ,; "If you were mayor of Lethbridge, and you were facing a deficit of $60,000 handed down from previous years; if interest charges were adding to that deficit at the rate of $6,000 per month; if you had to make provision for th'e deficit and the ihterest: by a charge against current account, what would you do about It?" There is a pice little'question in civics, which is far more inters estlng than whether or not it is right to collect poll tax. It was sprung on the Herald man this morning by Mayor Hardie, who is willing tp accept any practical solution, He is getting tired of facing If; every day or so, and would like, someone to Come forward with an answer. A deficit in current account can only-be met by the-revenue provided for current account. Revenue'for current account cannot be raised by debenture. If' that $100,000 deficit, as it will be in a few months, when the interest Is taken into consideration, is to be met, (t will have to be from the current revenue for 1913. The . estimated assessment1 for is $18,000,000. To.raise $100,.. qn this assessment "will re-qu,lfQ. : > Turkey's Reply to Note of the Powers-Offers Com-promse but is in no way Acceptable to the Balkan Allies-Situation Interesting Constantinople, Jan. 30.-The Balkan allies today gave notice of the termination of the arrnstice, the period of grace of four days to start at 7 o'clock this evening. Turkish Reply to Powers Constantinople, Jan. 30.-The Turkish government displays a spirit of compromise in its reply to the note handed to it by the representatives of the European powers on January 17. The response was presented today by Mahoud Shefket Pasha, the Grand Vizier to Margrave Johann Von Pal-lavicin, dean of the diplomatic corps in the Turkish capital.

It pro- Chatty Interview With Easterner who Has Interests in Lethbridge District "Manufacturers will follow population. No need to worry about that." Ail the way from Massachusetts, Mr. H. B. .Chaffle, of Oxford, is in ' today, and.will, remain for a couple of weeks, enjoying Sunny Southern Alberta weather. He- is enjoying it, too, and at the same time, is looking after, a land investment made by him a couple of years ago, when he became interested in a tract in Uo vicinity of Coaldale, � Mr. Chaffle is the; proprietor of a box factory in Oxford, employing about 150 hands. He is also largely interested in timber lands in his native state, but he has made an investment' in Southern Alberta because he believes Western Canada to be the coming section of the-continent. The gentleman from Massachusstts is greatly interested in the 'back to the land' movement which is heard about so frequently in connection with the New England States. The campaign being the Saturday Evening Post and other leading eastern publications, has drawn attention to the state of the farming industry in the older sections of the continent, and Mr. Chaffle believes that there is cause for the movement. "Massachusetts," he said, "has a population of over three' million people, but the total area of the six New England States is only about one-fifth of that of Alberta. Within the past decade people have �'� week just ended amount to * > > poses to leave in the hands of the powers the disposal of the land on the right bank of Maritza river, which runs through Adrianople. At the same time the government consents lo the dismantling oi the fortifications of that city. In reference to the Turkish Islands in the Aegean Sea, the document insists on the maintenance of Turkish sovereignty there owing to the proximity of the islands to the Turkish mainland, but intimated the readiness of Ottoman government to leave the settlement of the insular reigme to the powers. Allies Reject Reply London. Jan. ?>0.-"Emphatically the Turkish reply to the note of the European powers is not acceptable" was the. commenl. made by Dr. Daneff, leader of the Bulgarian peace delegation when he was shown the terms of the Ottoman response. He continued: "Speaking on behalf of ail the allies, I state that the Turkish reply is not of a character to form the basis of fresh negotiations. We have said that the fortress of Adrianople and the Turkish Islands in the Aegean Sea must be ceded and without this the negotiations will not be resumed. "Morover, this cession must be made before hostilities are resumed as the first shot will change our conditions." Suffragettes Win Strong Ally in Labor Mr. they London, Jan. 30.-The British Labor Party today officially declared itself in favor of woman suffrage. By a vote of 850 to 437, a conference of the representatives of the trade unions of the United Kingdom adopted a resolution instructing labor members of parliament to oppose any franchise bill in which women were not included. The significance to the woman suffrage movement of this resolution is very great. The trade unions have between two - and three million members, nearly all of. whom are electors. I GO TO E Ottawa, Jan. 30.-Their Royal Highnesses, the'Duke and Duchess of Con-naught will go to England in the spring in order that the Duchess may secure further medical advice.
