Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 4, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta \PA A.W.. ^MHkTTOaV Vt*WHl MM; 'fcUWT^Con'ft.uilJj ie�earTQ.c*MA&4 crispy, delicious Flakes. That's; whyeatingDominion Toasted Cor n Flakes is a lesson easily learned. Always Packed WAXT1TE Made by KELLOGG TOASTED CORN FLAKE COMPANY Toronto and BattI* Creek 9 Ottawa. July 3. - With thirteen members still anxious to spenk after the adjournment of too house tonight, the prospect of division on tho second reading of the military service 1)111 and amendments thereto at tho Wednesday sitting, are not very bright. There is no doubt, however, that If divisions cannot be taken tomorrow thoy will come on Thursday. The speakers in tho debate today Included J. H. Sinclair, of Guysboro; F. B. McCurdy. under secretary of the militia department; W. E. Knowlos, of Mooso Jaw; Col. Currie, of North Slmcoo; L. T. Picaud, of Megantic; A. LnChance, Quebec Center; C. A. Wilson. Laval, and G. Boycr, of Vau-dreuil. Mr. McCurdy gave some Interesting figures to show the urgent need for infantry reinforcements at the front. He maintained that the present reserves would be used up in less than six months. This was apart from 10.;son men still in Canada at the time the estimate was made. Support foi* Sir Wilfrid Lauder's referendum amendment came from Mr. Sinclair, Mr. Knowles and the French-Canadian speakers on tho opposition side of the house, while Mr. McCurdy and Col. Cunio supported the bill. Supported Referendum Mr. Knowles. while favoring the referendum, said ho was not opposed to the principle of conscription, if he thought the bill would get tho number of men required. Ho believed that the best plan to follow would be to let conditions revert to the situation which prevailed in England. He would let conscription stand in abeyance for the time to see it the party lenders could not reach some common gsound on which to further the interests of the country in the war. Col. Currie praised the French-Canadian soldiers and said he believed the majority of the people of Quebec would accept the measure without protest. He was disposed to ridicule taxation proposals emanating from the opposing benches, more particularly the proposals to tax land and conscr'pt wealth. CALGARY WITHOUT ADEQUATE POLICE This Is Developed at Inquest Into Mysterious Murder of Constable I* Calgary, July 3.-Testimony Introduced at the inquest last night over the body of Policeman Arthur Duncan, the officer who was shot and killed In the main part of the city 'l Monday morning, and whose body was  not discovered until four hours later, emphasized the fact that Calgary is without adequate polfce protection in the down-town districts. Policemen whose neats adjoined Duncan's testified last night that they were so far from the scene of the midnight shooting that they heard no gunshots. It was also shown that although Duncan disappeared at midnight, and this fact was known at headquarters, there were not enough officers on duty to make an adequate search for the missing policeman. A cursory search on the street failed to bring the presence of the missing officer to light and the search was not extended to the alleys. Facts tending to reveal the murderer were few and far between. On account of the threads of evidence pointing at variance, the coroner's jury adjourned last night for one week to give the police a chanco to solidify their evidence.

Chief Hardy was out till 11 o'clock last night superintending the pumping out of cellars where valuable goods wore stored. Tho macaroni factory was saved from a flooding by quick work by the lire dejuirtment. During the storm water lay to a depth of more than one foot on the corner of 5th street and 3rd avenue south between the Union and Merchants banks. Though gardens in tho city were riddled by the hail, the Chinese market gardens two miles southeast of the city were untouched. Very few hail claims are being made. Ttetlaw is reported to be harder hit than this district. Farmers state, however, that the hall damage will amount to very little, the grain being too young for the damage to be permanent. Telephone service throughout the south was badly hit by the storm but the lines are being rapidly repaired. The electric lighting system in the city also has a long trouble sheet today. NEED PUBLICITY E (From Our own Correspondent) Plncher Creek, July 3.-This was a happy day for the Fishburn neighborhood, the occasion being tho welcoming home of one of their most popular boys. Corp. Tom MnrcelluH, who had been in France and invalided home, arrived on the train this morning. A bevy of friendB from Fishburn were at the depot and carried their returned veteran proudly off. Corp. Mar-cellus is one of the three sons of Mr. and Mrs. J. P. Marcellus, who have been on active service for Home (time. He left with the 13th C.M.R. but for the greater part ot his. time overseas was one of the famous fighting 10th battalion. After a few days' vlBlt at home he will return to Ogden convalescent home for further treatment. London, July 3.-The people ot London generally, apart from tho Canadian and official circles, showed little interest In Canada's ">0th anniversary or In the jubilee services. The press gave far less publicity to it than they did to Baby week. The average London citizen did not know anything about it, and this condition showed the need of an active Canadian publicity bureau attached to Sir George Perley's office, like Australia has. Service Was Canadian Tho moving, poignant Westminster Abbey service was almost surely Canadian. The king, bronzed and sol-dler-liko, looking lit, joined heartily in the service. The interior of tiie abbey was dominated by Wolfe's monument, which was brilliantly decortod with the colors of numerous Canadian battalions.- "Bohold that monument," said the dean dramatically, during tho sermon. "There see tho symbol of Canadian liberties." From the windows of tho National Liberal club 150 Canadian mothers and widows of soldiers viewed the royal procession. Tho king stopped and received a deputation fro nithent. i Blanching of vegetables removes excessive ac;i:.i and improves the flavor, as well as causing some shrinkage, which will enable a larger quantity to be packed in a container, NOTICE OF DISSOLUTION PARTNERSHIP NOTICE is herei)y given that the partnership heretofore subsisting be-twoen us, the nndersigned, as General Merchants and Hardware Merchants, at Monarch, in the Province of Alberta, under the firm name and style of "Monarch Trading Store," has this day been dissolved by mutual consent.
