Webber and Vallon, in their confessions, supplied many missing links in the confession of Rose. Speaking of Becker and his alleged connection with gambling. Rose said, "Why, of course, I was Becker's collector. Everybody knew it." Webber himself says that his protec Uon payment for his gambling house to Becker, through Rose, was $125 a month. Becker Pleads Innocence Lieut. Becker, who has been suspended, spent a quiet night in the Tombs. "This is an awful plight for an innocent man to find himself in," said Becker, this smorning. The three prisoners, Rose, Webber and Vallon were still in a state of terror today, though locked in a room in the District Attorney's office, and guarded by a squad of detectives. Webber was hysterical and frequent ly wept. The confession of Rose, and arrest and indictment of Becker, created a sensation in the police department, and officials and patrolmen alike wondered who would be next to be involved in the tragedy. That an investigation will be undertaken by the city into the police department appears to be a foregone conclusion. District Attorney Whitman said: "1 am well pleased with the progress we have made. I am not in a position 10 talk about Grand Jury proceedings, but statements made to me were start ling in the extreme, and I am bound to say each of them seem amply corroborated. I hope to clean up the whole affair." Forging the Links New York, July 29.-District At- : torney Whitman is said to be receiving reports from the investigations of private detectives that make him feel he now is on sure ground , and that the capture ot the slayers oi Gambler Herman Rosenthal soon will be announced. The public prosecutor has heard that the five assassins after shooting Rosenthal fled to Rockaway, and there in a gambling house lost the proceeds of their crimes on the gamb-ing tables. Once broke, the slayers came back into this city and went Into biding. The gambling house in which they played is said to be owned by Bald Jack Rose, one of the men now under arrest in connection with the shooting of Rosenthal. Rose, it is paid, saw to it that the slayers with the proceeds of their crime were taken to the Rockaway gambling house. Five thousand dollars is said to have been the price paid for the killing of Rosenthal, and the private detectives have confirmed the information that no less than I twenty persons were involved plot. in the Jaw Locked for Two Years (Continued from front page). and the patient ordered to work his jaws slowly emd gradually until they became accustomed to their natural functions.

Supposed Fiend Paris, July 30.-Stgnor Gabrielle D'Annunzzio. who is passing a few days in Paris, at the Hotel Meurich, outlinod yesterday his views on the burning question raised by Winston Spencer Churchill's guarded hint that in certain circumstances. Great Britain might have to count with the Italian -fleet as with the fleet of an enemy. "In the first place," said the most intensely Italian of all living Italians, "it is undeniable that Anglo-Italian official relations remain unaltered and I friendly, but it is equally undeniable that in Italian public sentiment a change is discernible in this respect. "The peopie are watching the course of events with anxious attention. The change is there, but it is yet awaiting crystallization in concrete form." "To what do you attribute the change?" he was asked. "To several causes," he replied. "The malevolent, mendacious and contemptible congratulation of some British newspapers in connection with the so-called atrccities in Tripoli first amazed, then pained and finally infuriated all Italians. "We were accustomed to consider Britain as a firm friend, as the protectress of Italy, whose friendship and support could be depended upon in j any crisis. Imagine, then, the shock j that it was to the nation to find the British press, approved apparently by the English, villifying our* troops and accusing them of beastial crimes, of atrocities unworthy, I won't say of civilized, but of human, 'beings. "That painful impression his been partially effaced, largely through the efforts of the fairer minded and clearer sighted writers and political leaders in Britain. "Any severity, which has been ex-cercised in Tripoli, could be paralleled with scores of hundreds of greater severities in the conduct of British colonial wars. Warmed Up Again "The cessation of the anti-Italian campaign in BritiBh newspapers brought back to the Italian heart the old sentiment of friendship for Britain. "At the present moment ths Italian press is lauding to the skies an English writer, who has come to Italy. Even the King and Queen called upon him a few days ago. I mean Richard Bagot, the novelist. "His pro-ttalianism may, perhaps atone for his novels." "But, alas, I said, although Italian public sentiment as regards Britain is difficult to define, being, as it were, in a state of flux, there is a lurking of uneasiness in it. We feel that. Bri tain has not given Italy tile support that Italy had every reason and every right to expect. "The prolongation of the war is in a great measure a consequence of Britain's policy. Britain could end the war, could have ended it long ago with a word, if Britain had wished. To prove the reality cf her professions of friendliness toward Italy, she had only to adopt a resolute attitude at Constantinople in the early phase of the war. Italy would have been on her aide, France would have been on her side, Russia would have been on her side; Turkey would not have dared to resist, and Germany and Austria would not have found it politic to encourage Turkey to do so." "Is it too late for Britain to act?" "No, 1 do not think go. On the contrary, I think that her wisest policy would be to place her diplomacy resolutely at Italy's service. In the evicting crisis acts, not. words, not sugared declaration* of amity, are requisite.. Britain would be wise to strive energetically to end the war, for her inaction has contributed to pro long it. "In this latter respect of inaction, Italian statesmen, also, are not blameless. The war has been conducted governmentally in a spirit of bureaucracy, not toy statesmen. Look at its salient characteristics, every act of audacity has been followed by a period of timidity; the government seems terrified by every success of the Italian army. Admiral CagniB magnificent e'iploit fired the spirit of Italy, and Inaction followed; Rhodes, Stam-palla, and others of the Aegan Sea, that are part of our history, that have witnessed Italian heroism and Italian grandeur, in its most glorious manifestations, were captured, arousing joy and hope in the nation, and inaction followed; Captain Millo, with "Good to eat" doesn'i begin to describe * CORN ^ FLAKES, a band of heroes, made a raid in the Dardanelles, that sent a thrill of pride through the Italian race-and Inaction followed. The Guiding Principle "Capt. Millo's exploit at once shows the guiding principle that should have governed the war. After almost a year, in which the Turks have had .every facility to organize the defence of the Dardanelles, five Italian, torpedo boats went half way up the strait, ran the gauntlet of the submarine mines, and the fire of the Turkish forts and Turkish gunboats, and returned scatliloss. Not a Turkish shot reached its mark. "If the Italian fleet had gone tip the Dardanelles in the first week of the war, when Turkey's defence was not even outlined, it could have arrived before Constantinople without a shot being fired, and Italy could have declared the terms of peace in the Turkish capital. The Powers would not have. Intervened-could not have intervened, except to support Italy with their diplomacy. Britain's Responsibility "As I said, Britain's inaction was largely responsible for the prolongation of the war. Our wmy and navy have fulfilled all expectations, but they have not been seconded with equal courage and energy. "The war has, however, served one purpose: It has demonstrated to the world that the regeneration of Italy as a military power is accomplished. "The fact that stupefacation has been caused abroad by the magnificent organization of our navy, by the superb initiative, allied with unflinching discipline and self-abnegation of the officers and men, would be amusing, were it not so incomprehensible. No one with eyes in his head can possibly have failed to -realize years ago the perfection of Italy's maritime. "The salt breezes of the sea reach to the flanks of the Alps and: sweep along the Apennines. The sea is in our blood. We all fe*l its eternal grandeur. Never does our flag seem so beautiful to us as when we see it waving proudly over our warships. "Mr. Winston Churchill is quite right. - The Italian fleet must from now on form an element in all international calculations. Wheher Britain should regard it as a weapon to her, or as one that may be used against her. is a question that Britain's action will answer." The City has Mad. (Continued from front page) covering the arrangement will be pass ed at the next meeting of the council. We will be able to complete the work we have undertaken, at any rate, and I think that the citizens will be well protected in all financial matters which come before us." It is the general belief among business men of the city, who have been following the bond market in the Old Country, that money will loosen up thiB fall, when the prosperity of the West becomes a settled fact. The bonds of growing Western cities have always been particularly favored in London, and it is likely that a normal condition of affairs will soon become apparent, and Lethbridge will be able to dispose of its large issue without difficulty. With the large public works coming to an end shortly, there will be only two more large pay rolls tor this year. During the Bummer, the city payroll has been close to fifty thousand dollars per month, but with the laying off of ithe large forces of men the payroll will take on a greatly diminished appearance.

George Fry, formerly principal of Campbellford public school, will move to Collingwood and take charge of the King George school there. The body of Geo. W.

But the chance to repeat on the joys of boyhood will be there, and anyone, who misses out, will have only himself to blame, and that would be one of his life regrets. For the fair management arc bound and determined this year that no one shall go to the big booth for lunch, and come away ii.'iittering such expressively slang phrases us 'rotten', 'punk', and all interspersed with something more spicy. To guard against such a state of affairs, and to make all visitors who 'feed' at the grounds happy, tlicy have awarded the privilege of the grand stand booth io the Latter Day Saints' church congregation at Raymond. That announcement should be sufficient to start a good healthy appetite growing without delay, and by the time the dinner bell rings on the first day of the fair, the gnawing feeling should have reached magnitudinous proportions. A few days ago the Board of Control of the Dry Farming Congress gathered up about two hymdY.eji excursionists to go to Cardston to invade that town and stir up interest in the coming congress. When they ; arrived at the southern town they were hungry. It would be quite impossible to tell how hungry they really were. They thought they would eat the good people of Cardston out of house and home. But when they: sat down at the bountiful feast which ; had been prepared they found they ' could hardly make an impression on the hospitality provided tor them. > That is going to be. just the way I it will be at the fair. There will be 1 enough for everybody and some to spare, and it will be the real kind. Raymond is going to advertise the j ability of its housekeepers at the 1 Lethbridge fair. It is also going to j advertise the wide ran^e of produc-1 tions of the district. Everything pro- ; vided in their booth will be Raymond grown. It, will be a Raymond dinner from first to last, the tea and , coffee excepted. Everything will be sweet, for Raymond,made sugar will figure exclusively in the pastry. It will be a grand Raymond boost, and after the fair is all over Raymond will have the finest lot of boosters in the, outside world that could be found 1 anywhere. For it is a well known and i well established maxim that "the way to a man's heart is through his stomach." FARMERS CROP STORY COMPETITION When the farmers in one district be- POWDER STORE HOUSE BLOWN UP C'lovebincl, Ohio, July 30. - The gin vicing with Uuise of another in ; storehouse of the Austin Powder Co. showing just how gooil their rcspec-| near Newhurg Heights, a tew trfiles tive crops arc, it is a pretty safe j from the heart, of the city, were sign that the crops arc pretty good j blown up at 7.30 o'clock this ttiorn-all round.

This morning \V. S. Sherd of the city, brought in a sample of winter wheat which shows up like the wheat that has made Southern Alberta famous. It was grown on the farm of Sam McClure, not many miles from Lethbridge, and Mr. McClure claims the early cutting record for the district, the binders having been turned into the fir Id a couple of days earlier than cutting started on the Experimental farm plots. .1. W. Russell, living thirty-five miles north-west of Taber, in one of the new districts of the south, also has some crop this year which deserves special mention. The Alby district is a new one in the farming world, bin, Mr. Russell has wheat standing four feet in height which promises to yield close to -10 bushels to the acre-a pretty fair record for the north country. His oats and flax are also an excellent crop. but thus far no loss of life has been shown. The force of the explosion was felt for miles around and in the city plate glass windows here and there wero smashed. Scores arc reported fo have sustained minor injuries, a number being blown off their feet. Will Make Restitution ALL ABOARD FOR THE PICNIC On the arrival in the city last evening of Deputy Sheriff McCarthy of Butte, he was greeted by a proposal to make restitution by Johnston and Randall, the two young mvu arrested by the local police a few days ago on advices from Butte charging them with forgery. The deputy sheriff wired) his chief in Butte informing him of the offer, and the men are now free on their own cognizance awaiting the answer from the man who wants them on the other side. It is understood that if their offer to make restitution is not accepted ; the men will fight extradition. Their j interests are in the. hands of C. F. j Harris, and in ease they aae still j wanted at Butte, the case will have I to he, taken before a District Court 'judge in order that extradition proceedings mav he entered upon.

They will* visit Ottawa and Toronto. The party j will then proceed to the Soo aud to the West. DOUBLE FOR LATE EDWARD VII Paris, July 30.-Paris had a true ghost story-ghostly because it dealt with the apparent visitation of a dead man and true because there really was a man in the case. Moreover, this particular "ghost" was a royal one, being nor other than that of his late Majesty Edward Vir. of England. A taxicab driver first saw the ghost' in the Champa Ely see, and he was so astonished he called a policeman to share his amazement. The driTer pointed out the visitant and the policeman, who had seen the English King many times, was seriously hesitating what to do until a well known boulevardier took off his hat to the ghost aud the two stopped for a chat. Then from the 'boulevardier the polVce- ; man learned that the King's double ' was Albert Bernard, -the distinguished ! painter. There really was good reason for the upset of the official for M. Bernard is strikingly like the late King in the face and it is impossible to see any difference in their beards. M. Bernard is busy painting an allegorical picture for the Hall of Sessions of the Peace Conference at the Hague. He is slxty-ihree years old and works harder than when he was a student in the Latin quarter. BEARISH CONDITIONS IN CHICAGO PIT Chicago, III., July 30.-Clear, cool weather in the northwest, and official predictions of more of the same sort, had a bearieh effect today on prices of wheat. The conditions outlined were well fit to minimize the black rust, and so acted as an offset to advices that the foreign crop outlook had become less favorable. There was rather free selling on the part of several large concerns. Opening prices were M
