Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 11, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, JULY 11, 1918 THE LETHBRTDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE FIVE Drastic Action Pending in Moore Case, is Believed Calgary, July 11.-That drastic action la ponding In llio Mooro case, Is doomed corloiii. Shorlff Graham ro-portod to Jiiatico Stowiirt, to .liiatice BBck and to Chlot .lustlco Uarvy today, that ho had located Llt!ut.-Col. Moore at tho Victoria Barracks, but that thcro ho, encountorod Colonel McDonald, officer conuiuyKlIng tho difltrlct, who Informnil lilin tliat Instructlona had been received from Ottawa to resist tho arrest ordered Jjy tho court. Shorlft Graham explained to tho conrt that ho thoroupon considered It dvlsablo to report back to tho court without an attempt to enforce the nandato by placing Ijt.-Oolonol Mooro Jn custody for tho reason he feurod Ijhyslcal resistance. Imiiiedlatoly upon receipt of this Information tho court ordered that all tho solicitors jn the case Involved and Major Carson reprGseiilIng (ho military, be ordered to appear at two o'clock this afternoon at tho court Jiouse. At this appearance Solicitor Mulr, representing tho minister of justice, presented a tivo-pago telegram, closely filled with typewritten copy, .stating that it was from tho minister of Justice and pleaded for a stay of action until tho supremo court had time to consider the case. Solicitor Mulr did not read the lolu-gram but explained that the minister of justice asked that lie request tho appellate division of tlio Alberta Sup- reme court to adjourn the cases for two weeks. The moHsago explained, ho said, that tho supremo court would bo able, In all llkoliliood, to act before that time. ' Must Obey Courts Chief .Tusllce Harvey staled that ho would have no ohjeolion to put ling Stt furtlKjr con.slduration until 10 o'clock on Friday morning, provided the solicitor roprosentlng Uio military would communicute wllli the mlnlstor of Justice in tho meantimo and secure an order of Instructions to tho military instructing tlicin to comply with the,orders ol tho courts. Solicitor L. II. MlUor declared that no delay as requested liv ilm minister of justice should be grunted until all the men affected and many of whom wero reported to ho now out of the province at Ihp orders of tho military, should bo returned to within tho court's jurisdiction. Chief Justice Harvey thereupon declared that thi.s was embodied In his statement to Solicitor Mulr. S(^liclior Varlcy had spoken of tho dignity of the court having been flouted, .md the chief Justice, commenting upon this, explained that the court was in no way concerned with Its dignity as such. "It Is the Vight of tho citizens as entrusted to this court wiilch is Involved," declared Justice Harvey, "and It is these rights which the court wishes to protect." FIGHT IN HILLS Rome, July 11.-Italian advanced posts at Cornone, on the Asia-go Plateau yesterday drove back Auatro - Hungarian detachments, says the Italian official statement today reporting military op-firatlons on the Italian mountain front. Artillery fire was active In the Brenta Valley. On the remainder of the front there was the usual reconnoitring and har-acalna actions. PROTEST AGAINST GERMAN MURDteRS Chrlstianln, July 11.-Hans Olsen, one of Norway's best known pilots, who for years piloted the German emperor's yacht on its .summer cruises in Norwegian waters, has returned to the German legation the numerous decorations given him by the emperor. He wrote the German minister'that tho decorations were returned as a Iirotest against tlio shameful murder and cruel massacre of Norwegian sail- ors, many of them his friends, by Gor-I man submarines. While he has ap-I predated tho decorations, their pos-' session now gave hira no feeling but disgust. . While standing on tho street talking with another woman, Mrs. W. F. Sick, prominent in women's organi zatlons in Didsburj-, and wifo of the town constable, was killed Instantly when a runaway team raced on to tho side walk. Mrs. Sick was thrown tor a distance of 10 feet. She received severe wounds In tlio head. An inquest will be held. : : ? : : : : : > > ?

This transformation of a people into a race of ihnnons wlioso very name is anathema among tho generous minded people of tho world is tho result of a system of education designed to furnish tho eolfi.'-h aims of an autocrat." With a voice vibrant of paaslon and strong for denunciation. Peter W. G'oehel, of Kansas City, Corir.or presl dent of the American P.aiiUers' association, now '.tansas clialrman of tho war saving:; and thrift c-.mpaigii, a native of tliat same Ocnn.uiy, hut as stalwart an American as any who boasts generations of American born ancestry, voiced tho .spirit of awaken ed Americanism in the course of the most vitally eloquent and elenieutally powerful address that waa heard from the platform during tho entire two days of .session of the Kansas Bankers' association convention at Hutchinson recently. "As a lad of I') ycar.5." said Mr. Goehel,^ "i lived in a German garrison city. Tliere 1 have seen little insignificant sorgeant.s ,uid .suh-Hcutensnts strike in the face strong men privates In the ranks; 1 have seen them nplt in their faces; I have hoard them call these soldiers the most vile epithets that ever found iiuman lips, and these men were forced by the iron discipline of I'rusGla to stand and endure these insults.

I know this, the German people will celebrate the anniversary of that day with the same reverent thankfulness tliat wo Americans celebrate tho Fourth of July as the day upon which the ultimate emancipation of Germany from tho most damnable tyranny ot history was declared."

Henderson returned this week from the Empress district, where he has been in connection ^-lith taking up a homestead and tho quarter section granted to returned veterans by the Dominion Government. Mr. Henderson has a fine half section of land now and will' remove there in the .spring. Since labor unions are legal organizations, recognized as such by tho order-ln-conncll relating to the apprehension of those not engacicd in an eseential occupation, and siace J. H.

London, July 11.-In reference to the great mine fields which v/ere so notably restricting the submarines, Sir Eric Geddes said they stretched from Norway to the north coast of Scotland. There was a barrage across the Straits of Dover, he added, and mines in Heligoland Bight. Some of the fastest a^d best cr.ift of the navy v/hlch certainly should be ranked as the corps do elite, had gone Into the bight at night to lay them. HUNS DISSATISFIED. Washington, July 11.-Dissatisfaction in Germany over the work of tho submarines hr.s not been lessened by the recent optimistic statements of Admiral Von Cap-elle, says an official dispatch today from Switzerland. In ' this connection the Cologne Volks Zeltung Is quoted as follows: "We hear It said all around us that the results of the submarine war are becoming less satisfactory every week, or else that more submarines are being sunk than we can construct. This submarine warfare is even cursed, doubtless though it has contributed to bringing into action the redoubtable American Intervention." TRY TO BE OPTIMISTIC. Amsterdam, Jui'y 11.-The Cologne Voiko Zeltung, in a leading article deprecating pessimism over tlio submarine campaign, says if In some particular months the sinkings of U-boats exceed the new construction of these craft, the cases are only exceptional.

Those who cavil at tho present rates charged by the banks and other lending organizations fail to undeiv-itand the flnderlylng tarts in the situation, says the Monetary Times this week. Interest is the rcvard paid tor tho use of capital, an'l its rate is determined l/y the relations between the demand for atid liio supply of that capital. Thu' rate, iu the long run. is fixed at the point tliut equalizes tlie supply and the d It is plain that producers must pay higli interest rates for years to come under the conditions that confront tho world. , Not only is It, harder to save than ever before, but there is a great demand for loanable tuuds. Aside from war loans and spendthrift loans, capital is neodeO. tor productive purposes. And it is plain as a pike staff that, in the long run, interest can be paid only from the productive use ot capital-even the Interest upon War and other loans ot a similar nature. This is a consideration that should give serious pause to such public men as may feel iuulined to make 'the capitalists pay for the war." Tlie interest upon war debtii, and the ultimate extinguishment ot the debts thomBolvoa, ciiu only bo accomplished through speeding up production and increasing the nation's economic output. It is equally clear that no legislation can bo tolerated that, will tend to drive capital out ot the country; tor without capital tho nation's economic activilios will be curtailoil to tho point of stagnatioa and industrial decay.

Ilotary week in Kansas City was an iuspiratinn, not so much to the Rotarians themselves as to tho people of this city. The convention was a most remarkable gathei"lng at - a remarkable time and under remarkable ciroumBtancee. With the war spirit at full tide all over tho nation, these thousaurts ot fine busineas and pro fesslonal men cnmo to tho heart ot America to consider raattors of os tenslble importance only to them-aelvea. But from the moment tho gavol toll upon the opening ot tho iconventlon until the laBt speech was delivered, it was a wonderful demon Btvatlon oif patriotism. Enthusiasm tor the war, support ot every war factor and unbounded loyalty marked every utterance, and tho international character of tho meeting gave It special significance. It was something of a revelation to Kansas City to have Ujeso thou sands of Rotarlania here. Not, that there was ever the Bllghtest doubt in anybody's mind as to where the dele-gatoa stood lu relation to.the war. But that so much of the time and attoii-tion of tho speakers ^nd convention leaders should have beeii given to tho war was an amazing thing. The convention w(i8 only Incidentally a Rotary convention. It was more truly an Ainorloan convention,, made up of youngj strong and yjrlle business men who represent tiio hlghovt typo of tlie nation's and tho world's citizenship. The presence of these men was ii stimulation to endeavor 6nfl consecration In the winning of tho war. "LOST.A COOK" TWO REEL KEYSTONE COMEDY Mrs. Dane's Defence ;
