Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 16, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIUG6, A U RSDAY, JULY II, I I 00. NO. 182 DOUKHOBORS FOUGHT THE POLICE Were Overcome After a Struggle and Sent to Jail Yorktoh, July 15 "under in- struciions from the provincial govern ment to have the Doukhobor ringlead- ers at the Arcadia Gamp -committed to gaol, Inspector Junget-decided to make a raid last nighLwhen ten con. stables of ihc :R. N. W. M. P. and Sergt. armed with warrants to arrest six men and six women, pro ceeded to their orders >at midnight. The Doukhobors fiercely resisted arrest and the whole sixty in number, turned to the assist- ance of the'twelve. 'A pitched 'battle -was' then fought between the police and the Dbukhobors during which the latter made use of sticks of cord wood and whatever weapons came handy. After three hours of fiercer struggl ing, the police effected the arrest and overpowered thejbalance, and leaving a strong guard "at the camp returned tovYorkton at.5 a. m. with the prison ers. These were at once brought before Inspector Junget sentenc- ed .to six-months imprisonment. The six women immediately, .after receiv- ing1 sentence -were quietly dispatched in wagons to Canora, on their way to Prince .Albert goal. The six men will leave early tomorrow morning to- be distributed" throughout the differ- ent goals in the province. This is part of the experiment to see the ef- fect OR thbser left Vbehind and'it is thought to be tn'e beginning 'of tho breaking up of the whole band. WRECK IN CONNECTICUT Greenwich, Conn., July. CORN TO SLAKE FOR DISEASE Italian Pellagra, Hat at in StatM Symp- American phy- sician, James Woods Babcock, Su- perintendent for the state hospital for the insane at Coluuibis, S. C. hag succeeded in solving the question which hag been under investigation tor a'long time as to whether the dU- ease pellagra among the peasants in Italy and in the south of Europe exists in the United States. Dr. Bubcock, who has been aided iin his research by the Italian authori- ties, has proved that the. Italian Pel- lagra and the .disease common in the southern states having the scienti- fic symptomns are one and ihft same. The disease pellagra which is also called Italian leprosy, Alpine scurvy and Asturian rose; is accompanied by a reddening of the skin and sometim- es a hypertrophy of the skin arid marked mental symptoms and it is said to be "caused by poison masse taken as food. According to Dr. Babcock, pellagra was unknown in the United States un- til after the importation, after the Civil War of immature and unsound corn. It is thought that it hasW cry may lead to government inspec tion :of corn.

Mr. Whyte states that well advised as his company was kept with regard to the Western crop con- ditions, he was agreeably surprised at the prospect and from what he had seen of the country in the course of his trip.. had no hesi- tation in estimating this year's crop at bushels. In the Souris district there was every indication that harvesting operations would commence in a fortnight's time while he believed cutting would be fairly general throughout the west by Aug- ust 15.

United States a Qose Second at the Olympic Games For This Year's Clips Meeting of the Asso- ciation An Exchange To Be Established A ineetirifc of the Southern Alber- Woolgrowers' Association was huld in the Dallas Hotel last evening with a. good representative attend- ance. The following memlxirs were present: R. C. Harvey, Raymond; E. llarkyr and J. A. Horker, Cardston; A. .Green Taber; Chin Stalker, Coulee; N. Thomson, Grassy M. Cainplxjll, Grassy Lake; B. Hyrie, Magrath; J. McCaig, Leth- bridge; C. S. Scott, Lethbridge; J. Neil, Grassy Lake. President H. .C. Harvey was In the chair and J. "ITcCaig acting as sec- retary. Mr. Harvey reviewed the wool situation the season. Buy- ers have not yet been active this sea- son and the market is somewhat un- settled. Sir. Harvey said there were two alternatives for the producers. One was to STORE THE WOOL for two or three months 'on the sheering ground or in Lethbridge where ntor- ftgc fft'ciiitics have boon ofTered" at a nominal cost, and hold until buyers know their minds the other was tu consign to eastern corr.rnis- pessimists have been handing, out to tho sheep men in advance of- shearing Our prices are in closer sympathy with Montana prices than they are with Montreal and if unwashed coarse in Montreal is only 8 cents it does not necessarily fix the price for the western province wools as east- ei-a and western wools are not com- peting. Eastern wool is coarse wool, our is a medium grade or in some cases good clothing wool and it goes on the market beside imported fine from South America. The upturn in "London wools of this sort will send buyers our way shortly. The promise of better busi- ness for the factories from the Wes- tern demand in the prosperous har- vest season just now Iwgtnning nil over the west will settle the manu- facturers into confident buying with in the next few weeks. Though pro- ducers arc not looking for last year's prices, they do not expect to clu.-in up below the 12 o r 13 cent _rlc and are not inclined to mal nny bargain day for the buyers just yet. The clip is of splendid quality this sion houses. These propositions were as the range stuff hod no weak discussed by the meeting.

France and Sweden secured one first each. The United States had to be satisfied with one silver medal, symbolic of second prize in the three mile team race. It was announced tonight from the offices of the British Olympic Associa- tion that the attendance at the sta- dium 'today was the largest since the opening. There were four finals as- signed to the day and of these Eng land won the 660 yards cycling race and the three mile team race, thus bringing the number of gold medals accredited to Great Britain up to four, with two standing to the cred- it of the United States. London's comparative apathy to- wards the Olympic games is the news paper comment. The great stadium holds over persons but never yet have there been more than 000 people present. This is regarded all the more disappointing as it is not unusual for a big football contest in the province to attract from 000 to' enthusiasts. It is sug gested that the prices of the scats have been fixed too high and also thai the affair has not been sxifflciently advertised. The final in iho putting the wejf contest was won by Ralph Rose, Ol- ympic Club, of San Francisco. Horgan, United Kingdom, was sec ond: J. C. Garrols, Chicago A. C. A third.

Mr. Boyce's colleague's on speak- cr'fi left apparently took little inter- est in the question OB attendance was very slight throughout. Hon. Frank Oliver, replying, rioted that it was an outrage on Parlia- ment ior Mr. Boyee to take up so much time in putting campaign lit- erature into Hansard, when only a few days remained to consider the balance of legislation on the order paper. He pointed out that the lands had been disposed of under the reg ular to tender and and the price paid for lease exclu- sive of mineral rights was thirty cents per acre. Any piece of sur- ounding land in New Ontario could lave been bought outright from the Crown at the prevailing price of fifty cents per acre.

City League Gave last Another one run victory wrth sensational finish was pulled off last night when the Y. 3L C. baseball team got" the odd in a score. It was all their own way until Pressites woke up and smote Robson for eight hits in the seventh, mak- ing seven runs and tying the score. The balance of the game was of the most strenuous kind and it was not until Johnstone gathered in Tulley's scratch hit and touched the bag that the game was. lost. Except for one innings Robson pitched a great game except that he was too gener ous. In the third with bases ful anil one out he closed the innings by fanning the next two men. In the fourth he threw only three balls am the infield retired the side. Geo Moore and Robson batted well, each getting a double and two singles Van Spanckercn had perfect batting record and Stewart's triple with two on bases was a beauty. Tate got out of a tight place in the seconc when with bases full and one out he retired the by Brandow's easy fly and fanning Johnstone AB R H E Grand -Junction.
