Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 7, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta SATURDAY, JULY 7, KM 7 THE LETHBRTDGK DAILY HERALD PACK SEVEII HELD AT FERNIE � (fipeclnl In tlm Herald) Pernio, July ft.-Tho Workmen's Compensation I tan I'd, which was up-pointed last winter by tho provincial government, made Its first visit to J'ornto and hold Its first official session tills nftcrnoon In tho provincial court, room. Tho business brought before Ibe board was in tho nature of special claims upon tlm funds arising out of tlio explosion disaster at Coal (.'reek last April. Most of the claims had been disposed of before the arrival of the board, but in a few cases, in which special conditions existed, tho board IticiU tho evidence of several �witnesses, and will convene again tomorrow at four o'clock to take further evidence honrlng upon some claims made for additional compensation, where persons, other than widows or children, are said to be dependents upon men killed in the explosion, in ono case, the father of ;i man killed, lives in France and his son had been remitting to him a portion of his earnings In (lie mines. Another en so of seeming merit is that  of Mrs. Smith, who lost her husband and only son. leaving her alone, with no means of supporting herself. The board has boon working overtime ever since its organization, in formulating its methods of work, and ucipisilntlnrc itself with all the conditions bearing upon its duties. Tljc session this afternoon  demonstrated that the board has mastered Its duties as a court and everything moved as smoothly as any court, without much of tho formality pertaining in law courts. The personcl of the board Is widely known, all of them being men who have been In tho public eye for many years. The chairman, Mr. Winn, is tho youngest of the three, and is the lawyer of the body. He lias practised law in Rossland for several years and his residence In that mining town has brought him much experience and knowledge regarding metaliforous mining. Parker Williams, the moat unassuming, in appearance, of the three, liiis a most enviable reputation, earned by a long and successful membership in tho provincial legislature, where he rose by sheer merit and dtfggcd perseverance to n position second to none in that body of law makers. Mr. Williams has been a practical miner, and knows that business from top to bottom, and the coal miners of the province have a representative on tho board who knows their every need and the dangers under which they have to work. Me lias, also a keon senso of justice, and a thorough knowledge of men. especially of politicians and their ways. Mr. Gilmore, learned tho boiler maker's trade when yet young, and being a man of magnificent physique, he was not long in proving ills ability In that line. Ho did not remain a Bledgo hammer slinger for long, but climbed from tit* bottom to the top, and from there jumped out into the larger field of machinery, its manufacture, and especially its sale. He was for many years tho western representative of  the Watrous Engine Works, and left that service to take up tho duties of a member of the compensation board. There was criticism of the government, regarding the appointment of these men to their present positions, coming from som6 of the opposition press, but it would be difficult' to appoint another three men as well equipped for their duties or who would have created as little criticism. Tho board held a meeting with the management of the coal company after iis session In I lie court house, and have gone to Michel to meet any Interested parties that wish to see them there. They will return to Pernio and hold two public meetings tomorrow and another session at the court house before leaving to visit mines at Kimberly and other points on their return trip to the coast.

Sir,- Willi your permission I would like to draw attention to an incident which took place last evening at Henderson lake: Two young men wore on the hike in a canoe, when for some reason or other the canoe capsized and its occupants received a bodily immersion In the water. An alarm was glvm, and a boat was sont to their rescue, which was soon effected, as they were fortunate enough to hang on to the upturned canoe. Among the onlookers was the owner of a motor car which was standing near the scene ] of tjjo accident, and yet in spite of; the proclamation that is being made j from the housetops: "To show that j touch of human sympathy to our less fortunate fellows," the owner of tho! car allowed the two young men to 1 walk to town in their water soaked clothes instead of offering to take them in his car. While there was no crowd present to applaud such a friendly act, yet I think that-had the j enr been offered the. owner would have gained the undying gratltudo of the victims of the accident. Let us hope that the gentleman in question will read this letter, and should an opportunity present itself again, he will remember "that a fellow feeling makes one wondrous kind." I was a witness of the accident in question. Yours respectfully, SIDNEY T. BATSPORD. (From The Ottawa Journal.) atrnthroy, Ont., .Juno 29.- "Are you Mrs. Currlo?" "Yes." "The mother of General Sir Arthur Currlo?" "Yes." The quickest way into the sitting-room lay through tho kitchen. A wood fire was roaring in tho stove milking it too hot oven for tho cat. "We're baking tho bread," said tho general's mother, referring to herself and the Miss Currlo who pro-sided over the stove. "Come in here, it's cooler." Tho shortest-possibly tho beBt- recruiting speech ever delivered was repealed in a fnrmhouso four miles from here today by a woman of seventy. It was not new, oven In the farmhouse. So far It has directly recruited only ono soldier. That soldier, however, was General Sir Arthur Carrie, commander-in-chief of tho Canadian forces In France. The "speech" was from his mother. It was: "HE HONEST WITH YOURSELF!" It was tho maxim of the farm household from which Coneral Currlo has risen to honor and responsibility. Up The Shady Lane. A long journey by rail from Toronto, a four-mllo drive down a sleepy country road, a shady lane and a little path-these lead to the birthplace of General Currlo and the home of his mother, his two sisters fa third is in England with his wife, and two children), nnd his big brother, .John. Other Canadian soldiers may have como from palatial homes In busy cities, with a portochere to receive tho arriving motor cars. Tho mothers of other Canadian fighting men may live in cities and ride in street cars, but that Canadian whose word Is law-over three hundred thousand fighting men and upon whose authority these other Canadian sons risk their lives - still addresses his letters "homo" to a plain Canadian farmhouse, and one of those sturdy Canadian farm mothers that is more at home in an apron than a silk dress, and still bakes her own bread. Call Him "Art" Now. There are many people in Stratta-roy today calling General Currlo '"Art" who never knew him before ; as anything but "the big Currie boy, who went West." It is a token of the community's pride in him. They tell you at the hotel in Strath-roy that it's four miles out to the Currie's, and the best thing to do is telephone big .John Currie- the general's brother, that you're coining. They refer you also to the druggist's wife, who sent a Christmas basket to the general last winter and had a twelve-page letter back from him, in his own hand recalling the days when he went to High School in Strathroy. Not a levy of the older townsfolk spend their spare tlmo recalling early episodes connoc.ted with "the big Currie boy. Arthur"; Jiow he raised I particular Ned on a certain Hal- up. Tho. rain was beating rod petals from a full-blown peony growing at. the edge of the lawn. The row of trees besides the lano was swaying violently In the wind. Sharp lightning and violent thunderclaps suggested at least lo tho mother, the flash and roar of artillery. Wishes War Over. 'I suppose," she ventured, during a lull In tho storm, "that this would seem nothing to him-to any uf tho soldiers at the front." Presently the reporter offcrod another question. "What do you think about this war, Mrs. Carrie?" Pause. "I wish it was over." Pause. "I hope and prny that It will soon be over-and that he'll como back." Pause. "Without a scratch." "Did you know ho intended going when the war broke out?" "Yes. Wo knew he would go." "And you approved of his going?" "Yes." "Hut what would you say to the people who refuse to boo their duty that way?" A long pause. "Well," she said. "I've said before; It. Is for them to decide-not me. ... I tnught my hoys to lie honest with themselves. Tf men and women are that-tiiey don't need much advice." "To be honest with one's self?" "That's It. That's all I askod my children. He honest with yourself." Did Everything Well. Arthur Currlo. according to his brother John, had no special hobbles, and no special fiiRtes. "He liked everything and was Interested in everybody " He was a good farmer, a good student, a good business man, and a good soldier.

Sunday's discussion and wiH?i suggest the true place of the church j in the newer national life of ouif!j Empire. 1 Despite the obb and flow-of the ages.-j democracy holds the ultimate fu�,j ture. A democratic government and J a monarchical religion will be aal unthinkable as undesirable. One of the reasons may be, why Jesurt . still claims the admiration of men i and His church tholr criticisms and I censure, that they are now able to divine the difference and balance tho distinctions of His matchless Ufa and our inherited and illogical ecclesiastlcism. Democracy will want a sister religion. A cordial invitation i3 extended.
