He offered to bring clown the whole file or any por- tion of it if Mr. Haultain would make a request.- This Mr. Haultain refused to do insisting that the documents had been left on the table and should be brought back without application. Mr. Haultain eventually withdrew his motion to adjourn the House and the discussion ended. Chief Gillespis and his new force will have a proper initiation next week when the race track followers are here. Already there is quite a company of these gaudy clothed, smooth-tongued, light-fingered, yellow cigaretted, sporting-house-visaged, smug-faced gentry in the city watch- ing their chances to relieve the fool and unwary of his money by fakes of" one sort or' another. But the new- chief has a regular bloodhound nose for these fellows and will make their lives as miserable as that of the old' Greek guy who had a sword hanging over his head all the time. By the time he has filled the cells a couple of times and closed up a few of their joints, they will begin to think that the Lethbridge air does not agree with them and they need a change of clim- ate at once.
