Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 30, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, July 30,1912 THE LETHBRlgni&E DAILY tfERALP BELGIAN HORSES FOR FAIR Entry of Twenty Thoroughbreds Made From Belgium- Are Now on the Ocean Thirteen horses, all the way from j McNicol has been unable to quite lAntwerp, Flelgiurrp, will arrive in the make out what the names really are, city in the course of three weeks | but is satisfied thai any man who (or exhibition at Southern Alberta's | will bring horses that distance for ex-big exhibition. Morses crossing the , hibilion purposes must have some con-great Atlantic, and then almost! fidence in Instability as a breeder across another continent to add to the numbers exhibited at the Lethbridge fair is a new departure in this part of the world, but it certainly goes to show that Lethbridge is becoming known outside the American continent. Manager McNicol, of the Lethbridge Exhibition Board, only yesterday received word of this notable entry. When he received the letter bearing Rhe foreign post mark, he thought he was getting some voluminous literature informing, him of the pleasures of spending the winter in Europe, and was about to consign the letter to it he waste paper basket. But when he iread the contents he took a brace, and awoke to the fact that this was B')out the biggest thing which has ever happened to the Lethbridge fair. The letter was written from Antwerp, Belgium, and stated that the writer's brother, A. Howvzen, had sailed from there on July 6, with twenty stallions and mares, of which thirteen were to be exhibited, and that the brother would pay the entrance fees on his arrival. Four stallions and nine niajres will be exhibited. All are pure bred animals,, and t!:e exjiibitor furnished a list of the names.- Owing to the foreign tinge on the names of the animals, Manager It is thought that the shipper is a noted horse breeder in Belgium. During the past few years hundreds of Belgian horses have been shipped to Alberta to raise the standard of the stock in this province where horse-breeding is becoming recognized as one of the most prolitable industries which can be engaged in. And the shipper, desiring to establish his reputation as a breeder of Belgian horses, is taking the opportunity of exhibiting at Lethbridge to accomplish his end. Last year the special horse judges from. Chicago were unreserved in their praise of the quality of horses exhibited at the Lethbridge fair, and the fine prizes awarded has acted as a stimulant in the horsemen of the province so that the number of entries this year will be greatly increased. Now the announcement of competition with pure bred horses direct from the land where the best horses in the world are bred should add an extra inducement to the Alberta breeders to be here with their show stock, and there seems to be no reason to doubt that the horse classes this year will furnish a competition which is seldom seen outside the annual fairs in the great, metropolitan centres. TROOPS PACE PORT ARTHUR Port Arthur, July 30.-Red-coated Jnilitiamen pace up aud down the avenue about the coal docks section, while fellow soldiers are endeavoring Ho catch up with the night's sleep which they lost, in rude beds hurriedly made ready in box cars, a few workmen are coming and going from the coal docks. . Straggling strikers look on at the representatives of the law and order and all is quiet about the. place which last evening was the scene of a pitched battle between the police and rioters, resulting in the serious wounding of at least six men, though his condition is critical some hopes are held out that he will recover from his wounds, of which the most serious is a fractured skull. There have been practically no, developments since the militia turned out last evening. The company has not made any determined effort to recruit its forces at the docks, although it is understood they hope to bring in enough men to fill the vacant places, the presence of the militia affording a much better opportunity to do this than would have been the case had riot violence made the calling out of the soldiers advis NEW YORK IN TERROR OF GUNMEN Two Merchants Are Shot Down by Thugs-Bad Man Arrested New York, July 30.-Two daring shootings in which storekeepers in busy sections of the city were the victims, one receiving injuries which caused death, marked the latest outbreak by gun men in the city yesterday. A man identified by the police as Raymond Forby, alias Clark, with a long criminal record, who was captured by officers at the point of revolvers, is locked up, charged with both of the crimes. He was identified as their assailant by both victims. According to the police Forby was one of the three men who shot and killed Walter Meseritz, a flat buah haberdashery man, in a hold-up last February. The prisoner who described himself as Charles Wilson, 25 years old, a Brooklyn salesman, denies his guilt. Merris Schwartzkopf, an east side jeweler, was shot in the neck by a man who bad called to have a watch repaired, when an argument arose over the charge for the work. The man walked calmly from the store and disappeared. Shortly before he died, Schwartzkopf identified Wilson or Forby as his assailant. The second victim was Maxwell Katz, chief clerk in a large cigar store in Cooper Square. A Btranger, who had entered the place suddenly drew a revolver and began shooting. Katz closed with the man and was shot three times. A crowd charged the assailant into the cellar of an apartment house. The police who entered with drawn revolvers found Wilson or Forby hiding under a bundle of rags. Katz declared without hesitation that the prisoner was the man who had shot him.

The government members and officials primarily interested in the matter are --THE-- BROWN BETTY TEA ROOMS OPEN DAILY, 11-6 Business Men's \ Lunch i2-2 Afternoon Tea Ike Cream At the Sign of the T Cor. 3rd Ave. and Flftl in England at the present time, and those in the city do not care to comment until the full judgment comes to hand. The general impression is that the Privy Council having concurred in the view held by Hon. C. .1. Doherty, Minister of Justice, and his predecessor in office, Sir Allien B. Ayleswortli, that the Dominion Parliament lias no authority to pass a general marriage law, little more will be heard of the matter, more particualrly. as tli-a courts have declared that the civil laws of the country In regard to marriage over-ridei any ecclesiastical canon. There is the possibility, of course, thai, those who aire still anxious for a Dominion marriage law, will initiate a movement to have the B. N. A. Act amended. Such an agitation would introduce (the vexed question still more into the Parliamentary arena. TJie impression appears to toe somewhat general, that no such action is likely to be taken by Mr. A. E. Lancaster, or other parties concerned, at leasit for the present, and but little will be heard of the matter at the approaching session of Parliament. Toronto parties are involved In a half-milliou real estate deal at Gait. PLUMBING SUPPLIES ARE STILL SCARCE "Plumbing supplies are still scar-*," said Jas. Olenister, of Metals, Ltd., today, when asked about the situation at present in Western Cam la. "The greatest trouble still is to get soil pipe," he continued, -nut we are advised that a shipment is on the way from Toronto, and the situation will then be relieved. rh;ie is-still a scarcity of plumbing supplies in the big eastern factories, and western wholesalers will have supply the demand the best way they know how. However, I believe the worst is over." On -enquiry from several of the local plumbing concerns yesterday it was learned that unless a supply of soil pipe arrived this week several large jobs would be delayed until arrival of shipments from the 'east. It appears, however, that some work will be delayed but the delay in general will not be serious enough - to tie up building all over the city. FIND HARD COAL ON ARCOLA FARM Mrs.'S. J.
