Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 21, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta VOLUME VJII. LETHBRIDGE. ALBERTA. WEDNESDAY, JULY 21, 1915 NUMBER 186 SWARD OIL m Five Thousand on Report Says Rioter Killed Strike Bad Boys Fined For Damaging Vacant Houses New York, N.Y., July rioting occurred, during which one man, John Molosky, 18 years old, was- killed, and nearly three score more or lent seriously Injured, marked the second day of the strike of the work- men at the plant of the Standard Oil Co. of New Jersey, at Bayonne, N.J. The workers, most of whom are of foreign birth, and unorganized, gath- ered at the gates of the an early hour, and disorder, which then began, lasted until nearly noon. At that hour me polite, assisted by deputy sheriffs and firemen, brought the situation under tempor- ary control at least. The police say several thousand persons took part in the attack. Of the 53 injured tak- en to the Bayonne hospital, 50 are men and boys' who fought about, the gates of the .plant; the other three are .policemen. Inspector Cady had a horse shot under him and later narrowly-escaped serious injury when he was one .time surrounded hv riot- ers at a fire house when he had gone to stop an attack. Mischievous boys who have been breaking windows and removing pro- perty in vacant houses have beer, taught a lesson by the punishment meted out to them at the juvenile court on several occasions lately. Fines were imposed upon the hoys to impress them with the fact that this wanton destruction oi properly was criminal, and it is hoped that there will be no further damage of this kind (lone to houses. Parents should impress upon their children that' they must not damage property, that if they do so they will have to appear in court and he punished. In the cases which came up lo the juvenile court Unes were im- posed in every instance. A reward of has been offered to parties giving information leading to the conviction of ..persons who damage property. The hoys would serve the community and themselves much better if they would take an interest ill seeing that property is not damaged, and where it is dam- aged if they can supvly information as to the parties who damage it they should advise the chief of police.

Germany Still Being Fed Despite British Blockade London, July 21. The question whether, despite the cot- 7.ton and foodstuffs .are still reaching Germany, is seriously exercising the British press.. The Times refers to the subject this morning, regretting Asquitli was unable; to hold out greater hopes of effectually dealing with the cotton difficulty The. Daily Chronicle points to i the enormous increase in .'exports of raw cotton and foodstuffs; linseed oil, and similar articles to Holland and Scan- dinavia, and disclosed by the board of trade returns, and says "The question frankly arises whe- ther, without knowing it, we are feeding the enemy, fn the case of linseed oil the question is dpubiy im- portant, because, in addition to be- ing a constituent of cattle iood, if is also material for the production of high explosives in which glycerine is used. It is therefore in the same cate- gory as cptton and the question of its export requires the earnest at- tention of the board of trade."

Returns Will be Bulletined at Herald Returns of the voting throughout the province as received by wirs will be bulletined and announced by megaphone at the Herald Office tonight. Returns from all city polls should be complete shortly after seven o'clock, and returns from southern points.should be in shortly afterwards. A general idea of how the pro- vince has voted should be possible by ten in the evening. Returns from city polls will be tabulated and posted on the Herald Bulletin Board in proper order. HUGE VOTE POLLED TO-DAY Forecasts that the biggest vote In the history of the city wauld be polled today, are being more than borne out by the indications of the morning By ten o'clock in some polls, one-third of the vote had been cast, and by noon this was the case with almost every poll. Every available conveyance had been com- mandeered by both parties to get out the vote, and there will be few to- night who have not cast their ballot. This means that in the city, polls over 3000 wilL-rote, Many names have not been .enumerated, and this has necessitated the swearing in of many, voters. The drys showed the greatest ,act-. ivity the earliest, but it was not long before the streets were full of flying autos and hastening rigs hired b'y both, parties. There is very little evidence of any trouble at anyfof the polls. The local hotel keepers voluntarily dosed their bars, although given the right to keen open. In the country districts the vote is coming o.uj in. good shape, and a re- cord vote is being polled.- Soldiers Not Here Voting is evidently too expensive a proposition for the majority of the Lethbridge soldiers of Sarcee City. Although .the hoys were granted a day's leave to go back home to'vote, hot many of them were inclined to foot the bill. A couple of the tioys" returned on the Aldersyde train this_ afternoon. At'Edmbntor. '.Edmonton, Alta., "July on the prohibition plebiscite started at S o'clock this morning wltb the "dry" vote showing the greatest early morning activity. Both sides- have strong_organizations in Edmonton and adjacent territory, and are confident that a heavy vote will be polled be- fore G o'clock. City polls are being watched out- side by women on behalf of the the women being busy band- ing out last-minute literature and ap- peals for prohibition. The business men's vote has not yet commenced to be cast in earnest, but it is expected that the so-cal'Ied silent vote will be polled during the" early afternoon. Thus far proceed- ings have been of an orderly nature. At Calgary Calgary, Alta., July on the prohibition plebiscite continued throughout the forenoon all over the city, and both sides are making every effort to get supporters, to the polls Up to nooa the recording of the bal lots had proceeded without incident, there being no arrests made for ir- regularities under the Flection Act London, July is expressed in editorials this morning at the settlement of the coal strike, but is tempered by misgivings. As to the: possible outcome of the complete surrendeu to the men, who obtain virtually all their original demands, except that instead of an agreement for three years, which they desired, they secured an agreement uhich run untiF six months alter peace has been declared.

SIMPSON "Winnipeg, Man., July Direct'evidence indicating that a bilge sum of money was pass- ed by Thomas Kelly, contract- or for the Parliament build- ings to Dr. R. M. Simpson, Con- servative party leader in Win- nipeg, was given before the Royal Commission by an official of Bank of Canada. This official identifies a seal found in Dr. Simpson's safety deposit box in the Union Trust Co. as the seal on a bund'ie of which ,was part of a sum of .paid out to Kelly by the bank on June 10, 1914. does not clearly but as it has "been expressly stated -that none of them will be penalized for the part taken by them in the present dispute, nothing more will be heard of the fines to which they were sub- ject icason oi their stop- ped >vork and it may be assumed that-'as far as they are concerned, the munitions act is a dead letter. FILES IIS SUI1 Winnipeg, Man., July ing on behalf of the provincial government, Attorney General Hudson filed his statement of claim in the'civil suit instituted against Thomas Kelly, Lawrence Kelly and Charles Kelly, con- tractors, under.the name of Thorn as Kelly Sons, to recover money alleged to have been improperly paid in connection with the erac- tion of the Parliament buildings, here.

Days Without Food. George can tell ,you some stories of fighting.that make your blood con geal He has been fighting almost steadily since he left At one time, for three months, day and nighO he was In the tliick of the fight, and it-.-was-a .-literal hell, with no .welcome shelter of trenches, b.ut out in the open where, every bullet had a fair chance of meeting a hu- man target.

Time to shave1" exclaim ed George "No time In even eat or drink. For five dan without a meal Many days without water, often. That s no joke It was fierce figting, all right." Warsaw Drive Apparently Capture of Riga Would be Severe Blow to Russian Supply Sources London, July of the fall of Warsaw are In circula- tion today, but the latest com- munications from both sides in- dicate the Austro-German rush ward the Polish capital, has slow- ed down. The Russians continue to lose nround, but apparently, the campaign has not yet been brought to a decisive issue. The most important success now reported by the Germans has been won by General Woyrlch, south of Ivangorod. This seems to have been a surprise attack. The Russians, who had heavy re- inforcements in the neighborhood later delivered vigorous counter attacks, but failed to recover the lost ground. Wlndau, in Ccurtland on the" Saltic, is definitely in the of the Germans, who are now within 35 miles of the Important Russian seaport of Riga. Pol- session of Riga by the Germans would force the Russian armies near Shavlt and Mitau to retreat, as the Baltic port is their chief point of supplies. The ambitious advance of the Germans in the Baltic indicates that they hope not only to capture Warsaw, but to cut off the retreat of the Russians by placing forces between the re- tiring armies and Petrograd. AM these [ate advances plaea Grand Duke Nicholas, the Rus- sian commander-in-chief, In an em- barrassing position.. STRIKERS AIM TO TIE UP ALL THE MUNITION FACTORIES IN STATES Bridgeport, Conn., July calls resulted today in machinists throwing down their tools in a num- ber of Bridgeport shops, and walking out.
