An agitation has been on foot, for some months .to have, a full judicial district iormcd in the Taber riding with this town as court headquar- ters, but (he attorney-general's de- partment lias decided to make this a sub-judicial district, to Let-hbridge, just as the district of Medicine Hat has been a sub-district to Calgary, with a residi-nt district court' jihlgu at the Hat. The move will mean the erection of a substantial court house in Taber, and the necessary .orssr.i7.o.tion and office stafT of a sub-district, "and pos- sibly a resident district court judge. It will also bring about the trial of all supreme court cases in' Taber, in- stead oi at Lethbridge, as in the Times. WIFE-BEATER IS COMMITTED FOR TRIAL Fernie, B.C., July J.
