NEAR MACLEOD Taken With Crnmpa-Effort To Save Him-Death of Indian Chief Communications under thla heading ' must bear the signatures ot the writers. MODERN ADVERTISING. To the City Commissioners: I note with a great deal of satisfaction your advanced move in using Gait Gardens for advertieing purppses. This I may say is not appreciated by everyone. Some ot the moss-backs have actually voiced their disapproval, going so far as to say that It is a disgrace to mar the beauties of that lovely spot with unsightly signs. Thla just goes to show how far behind the times they are. Personally I think it is a capital Idea it carried out In a proper businesslike basis; an advertising scheme such as I herein suggest would bring in such a revenue to the city that the total debt would be shortly wiped out and we would have very little if any taxes to pay. That newspaper advertising is an absolute failure, the tax sale proves. I suggest that the city build or allow to be built a dozen or more such buildings as the one at present in Gait Gardens scattered all over the grounds and plastered on all sides with the very brightest colored signs. Tlie trees could be used to hang up more signs. The water tanksi on Ninth and Fourteenth Btrcets provide valuable apace tor soap signs, etc. Let us arrange It that the public, no matter which way they go, cannot get away from the thought of busir.i'sjB, buslnese first last and all the li:;;e. Again I suggest that wo erect a goodly number ot varied colored signs in the cemetery; lest perchance some one may ao far forget business and himself as to wander out thorp to mourn over the grave ot a loved one; lot him be brought back to tlio stern realities of life by reading on a'huge sign that the U. &. Y. Co. sell shingles or the C.S. Co. buy second hand furniture, etc. The gardeners In the park and the street sweepers could be utilized. Though � loan lot, their backs could be made use ot. For instance the . sweepers could carry a sign, such ae "Buy your garbage can from the city." The motorraen could while on duty carry the ad ot a rummage or .iuly sale. The police could be made profitable as well as ornamental. The very name sugKests to ine a huge man witli a broad back and a bulging front, who could provide considerable space both tore apd aft tor either a patent medicine or a chewing gum sign, it could be arranged for him without too much exertion to make a halt turn say every fifteen mlnutos. ' Theso are only a few suggostlons; if you In your advanced ideas of adver-tiali!;^ �o anything worth while in wha' 1 nave written r would hp only too ideaaod - to uncork some more. Yours, Ji\ J, SOAIIKS. fFrbm Our Own rorresponrtcnf) Mnclcort, July 12.-On Wednesday morning while a small party of young people were swimming in a 'slough about 10 miles east of Orton, Philip Hornbergor called for help, saying I am all In. who were with him made every effort to save bim but to no avail, as ho sank and did not rise again. It is quite evident that the cold water from springs which feed those sloughs gave him a severe shock, and heart failure from over exertion In trying to swim across the slough the secouii lime. The body was_ recovered In a few hours, and fho cordher notified. He did not consider an inquest necessary. The young man was just IG years ot age, and a line type ot manliood. as he stood over 6 feet, and welghe(\ nearly 200 lbs. His parents live in Orton. Indian Chief Dead On the morning ot July 11th there passed away at the Jlaclood Municipal Hospital, Big Swan, the chief ot the riegan Indians, at the age ot 92 years. Big Swan was one of the Indians who helped his people to make the treaty with the government years ago, and there ia only nne of that notable party left on the Piegan reserve. He was all that his name implies, the Indians called him Big Hearted Indian, and added the name because he was so true and gentle. The body was removed to the reserve for burial, where great mourning will be indulged in by his many friends. m GUILTY OF. FALSE PRETENCE Fernie Miner Found Guilty Securing Money By False Pretences (Special tn tlip HeraltU Fernie, July 12.-The case ot the Crown against H. Monlik, a miner who has been working at Michel, and who was charged by the Crows Xest Pass Coal Co. with obtaining money under false pretenses, was concluded yesterday before His Honor Judge Tiioms.on, in the county court here, when His Honor found the accused guilty and imposed {i fine of $100.00 or six months in jailj' A feature of the case was the contention of the defendant, that the placing ot check.s upon company cars of coal was a customary thing when a contract miner was taken from the face and put at company work, as a remuneration for loss ot wages by such transfer. Several witnesses for the defense testified that thi.-i practice was a custom which had been practiced ^n all the mines of the Pass. Witnesses for the crown. Fire Bosses and Pit Bosses, contradicted this evidence and the court ruled in accordance with their evidence, finding the defendant guilty as above stated. The crown was represented by Attorney Smith and A. MacNelU defended the accused. A mass meeting of Gladstone Union was held last night at which it was decided to give notice to the company to prepare places,,for the miners so that the single sliift system could be put in practice on'the 1st of August. ^^oodi not tkt fofic^ fugk policed ojw5. iSna u FORSlJOHN,N.B.
