Nesbit, A. Wash Montreal.. June oi the death' of Albert Edward Lewis of Van- couver, cabled from Paris, recalls the nine days' wonder of a decade ago. Mr. Lewis was then a resident of Montreal and supposed to be wealthy as he had married a daughter of Stanley Bagg, who owned a large slice of valuable property in a fash-: ionable residential pan of the city.1 Lewis was a real estate agent and trying to put through a deal a suburb of Mfle End, now Ville St. Louis to which was violent oppo-' -siiion. One night he left- home'os-1 tensibly to keep an appointment in connection with the matter. He has not been seen since in Montreal. The letter making the appointment was a dark corner of a straggling suft- which did not have so good a reputation then as now. There were hints of a terriffic struggle and one of Mr. Lewis' gloves and cap near by. Threatening letters were found in the house and the police went to work on a foul play theory. Before long they "began to look further afield and soon had no doubt that Lewis was alive and well. Months after it was discov- ered that he was in Japan. He re- mained there for a year or two after wards returning to Canada and tak- ing up his residence in Vancouver where his wife rejoined him. They are said to have owned a good deal of property in Vancouver. 1.. Tokio, July noon today the resignation of the cabinet" was tendered. There is reason to believe that the emperor has already nstructed Marquis Katsura to form a new cabinet but the announcemen will not be made officially before July and may be delayed until the arrival of Prince Ito from Seoul, July 12. The next cabinet will likely be largely composed of adher- ents of Marquis Yamagaa, and will be constructed on non-partisan lines. A well- known authority said to the Associated Press: "All rum- ours that a change in the cabinet means increasing mili tarism are absolutely unfoun- ded.
