Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 4, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbridge Daily Herald VOL. II. LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, FRIDAY, JUNE 4, IM9. NO. 147. CARRY CROPS ON KIMBALt BRANCH Line Will Be Made Standard Guage At Once (Special to The Herald) Cardston, .June A. Ma- grath, M.F., was here Tuesday and met with the town council and board of trade. The main topics discussed were relative to the opening up of a part of the Blood Reserve and the extension of the Kimball branch of j the A. H. 1. company's line. The first mentioned topic was treated j very briefly, but Mr. Magi-a'th gave assurances that the Kimball j branch would be made a standard j guage this wason and be prepared to haul the crop away. The rails will j nor, be extended beyond the field of J. W. Woolf for the present season. the laymeus' missionary society oi which Hon. Mr. Gushing is president. 0. W.

The fire extends for a hundred mili-s buiween Crooked River and Bowsm.Ui and from Hudson's Jct.-nhnost to I the Pass. Xo loss of lift- i? reported as yet. but it is feared that some the farmers away from the track have suffered. It is estimated that worth of property has been destroyed. The entire plant of tl.i' Ruby Lake Lumber Company saw mill, on the Hudson's Bay branch was wiped out last night. A four span bridge on the C. N. H. east of Envood was burned to the wa- ters edge, passenger trains being de- layed. The flames are being fanned by a 20 mile an hour gale and as it has been a very dry spring, it like matchwood.

Strathcona, Alia., June sessions of the Alberta conference opened this morning with General Superintendent Carman in the chair. He delivered an eloquent and stirring address which lasted forty-five min- utes. His patriotic references were fine. With reference to the recent trpversy on Scripture, he said he would as professor demand lib f-rty of thought, investigation and in- struction.' He believed in this. He believed in ground provided by G'xl in the sujwrmuuralism of Chris- tian religion without which religion is a fraud. This faith makes miracle.- of the old and new testament very clear. How could God reveal himself except by In conclusion he stated that he could and did be- lieve what Christ endorsed and he showing Christ's f-i the Old Testament. Christ was not an ignoramus, and the men broke down the foundations of faith do not bring men to Christ. 'Rev. C. H- Heustis, of Red Deer, was elected president on the second ballot, over A. R.

WAS MARRIED BEFORE HIS TIME Young Minister On the Car- pet At the Methodist Conference Strathcona, Alta., June was Ministerial day at the conference and a revfew was made of the financial and moral standing of -the various probationers. There was a lengthy discussion in the morning over the Wetmorp, case, a former probationer in the Fort Sas- katchewan district, who, acting c.n the advice of the chairman, of the cir- cuit, quietly withdrew from the min- istry.- The causes which led up to his withdrawal were due to rumors, though no specific charges could he laid. There was a variety of opinions. Several wanted o.n example made of the young man as an object lessee to others who might have a tendency to become careless, but the weight of argument of the moderator prevail- ed. Another interesting case up in the morning. Rev. Mr. Had- don, a probationer a short time ago and a special commit- tee was appointed to go thorouhly in- to the matter, review all correspond- ence and see if there were extenuat- circumstances to warrant the e being approved by the conference. Tt is a standing rule of the conference of the Methodists that no probationer shall get married without the consent of that body. If he does so his name shall be quietly dropped from the list. It appears that Mr. Haddon con- templated taking the matrimonial step last year and at that time gM the consent of the chairman of hip district. He changed his mind and the wedding did not take place till this year. Now it seems that the ap- proval of the chairman of last year does not bold good this year, hence the investigation this year. The afternoon was again taken up with ministerial routine work at whien the educational status of the proba- tioners was well as pro- posed college courses. There was mass mooting held in the ohiireh in tho evening under the auspices of MOOSE JAW IS SORE ON THE UMPIRE Played Match IJnder Protest From Fifth Innings Moose Jaw, June a large crowd the Coal Miners of Lethbridge defeated the Millers this afternoon by 5 to 2, playing under protest from the fifth inning. Both teams played excellent ball, and the game was one of the. best yet seen in' this city. Umpire Don- nelly continues to sit on the home team, and will not 'alter decisions, even when shown his mistake in the rule book. In the fifth mning. with the bases full, Gebeau threw high, the ball hitting the stand, but the umpire would not allow an advance on bases, so Manager Taylor prof1 tested.

Downer, Redpnth St., barn G. CurnV. Courltond St.. two tions, cago in sixty days and to be install- ed inlboth feities by October 1, The Lethbridge system will have a capacity of instruments of which six hundred are to be in operation by the first of October. The automatic system, which is to be installed in East Calgary, will work in conjunction with- the old manual system now in use. Mr. C'ushing, when interviewed by The Bulletin, stated that the prim- ary object of his tour of investiga- tion in the East had been to ascer- tain how the automatic system stood the test of time, and that on that score he was now satisfied. "In Grand said Mr. Cush- ing, "I inspected a system which has been in. operation for over eight years and which is giving complete satisfaction, with no indicat ons whatever of playing out. There are ten thousand 'phones operating in this system. The rates are very low, a year for office 'phones and for -house 'phones. "In Columbus I found a system in operation six or seven years and in the best of working order. This city has fourteen thousand automatic 'phones and the rates are about the same as in Grand Rapids. "Omaha affords a good example of the economical operation of the sys- tem. Mr. Eversoll, manager of the Omaha Independent 'Phone Company- has three men looking after five thousand instruments. I find that it is considered an easy matter for one man to handle an- exchange of one thousand 'phones." Mr, Cushmg- stated that, opinion, borne out by investigation, the Strowger automatic 'phone sys- tem was much the most satisfactory in existence and the most economical in the long run. It would ultimately supplant the old manual exchange, and, in adopting the" system. Alberta was leading the way in Cana-da in a movement which was already general m the United States. The Automatic Electric Company, of Chicago, which owns the patent for the Strowger invention, is a com- pany .of large proportions, capital- at eight million dollars, six mil- lions paid up. Joseph Harris, of Chicago, a director in a number of other large corporations in Chicago an-i New York, is president. He was the first to develop the idea of matic telephone service and of the automatic telephone switch as a com- mercial possibility, one which now bids fair to revolutionize the tele- phone business of the world. The system has been in operation in Los Angeles for seven years and now ounts subscribers. A sys- tem of 'phones is being in- stalled in San Francisco, to be in operation by th-i of June, 1900. A contract has recently been closed to put in systems in sixty towns in Cuba, starting with Havana. The company has an exclusive franchise for the island of C'uba, and the first right to construct long distance lines. The construction of those lines never has bocn permitted before, as the people are so subject to revolution- ary movements and could use the phones for the purpose of speedy mobilization. Negotiations Lave re- cently been closed for patent rights any and are ponding for France and Italy. NEW TIME TABLE IS ANNOUNCED The new C. P. K. time table effective June 6th will be an important change for Leth- bridge. There will now be three first-class passenger trains both east and west of Lethbridge.

C. Pratt, leader of the strikers tonight. This declaration, together with State Senator MoNichol's statement that the strike would be settled within 24 hours, has brougfft a ray of hope to the thousands of footsore Phila- delphians, who have been plodding to and from their daily toil since Sat- urday, May 29. The .report that the strike would probably be settled within 24 hours, spread like wild fixe tonight, but not before the rioters in Kensington 'district had started on their errand of destruction.

The Great Northern railroad bridge at Elko was washed away this morning and it will take some days to repair the damage. Cattle and horses at pasture have been washed into the current and drown- ed, and the people are seeking the higher ground for safety.

MUST PAY For Biographical Sketch and Photo in "Souvenir of Alberta" Edmonton, June reason of a judgment handed out. in the Dis- trict Court this morning by Judge Winters, Frank WaJker, M.P.P.. of Fort Saskatchewan will have to pay for the biographical -sketch published by the Lanward Publishing Co., in a booklet, entitled, "Souvenir of ta." This book contains sketches and engravings of a large number of prom- inent men in Alberta, each sketch costing in the neighborhood of After the book appeared a number of those who had contracted for space in it refused to pay as they claimed the work was not as it was represent- ed to be. A number of these cases have been tried in this "district court from time to time, the company win- ning out in nearly every instance. In the case of Hanley vs. Walker, the whole defence was based on th-: fact that the sketch and proof of the article nnrl engraving was not sub mitted tn the defendant prior to publication a? provided for in the {contract. Judfro Winters held, how- ever, that the defendant had writ- ten the company with reference to the acceptance of their draft, it was sufieient proof, that he had contracted for and expected the article to be pub- lished. He accordingly gave judg- ment for the plaintiff with Regina, Sask., June in- teresting statements were made by Kinkade during his cross-exam- ination by 31r.

Ernest Morris was present at a service held at the witness' house before the body was taken to Milestone, and had not shown any inclination or desire to [leave the vicinity at any time. The witness admitted being the one who j volunteered the information to the j public regarding the tracks of the de- ceased horse, etc. The accused was! engaged to the witness' daughter and j he had been told something with re- gards to one of his family and the j accused, which might influence him j against the prisoner, but he did not.

He had stated bel'ore on oath that ho believed Ernest to be a good boy and did not think he would do a tempers he got into over her doctor j and hospital bills when she was ili. was the cause of her leaving him i and going back to her parents. She also swore that neither her parents j nor herself were Mormons, and that Ishft and her husband had never dis- cussed the subject- of religion at an> i lime. Mrs. Barclay, who looks very il" I and troubled, appeared in court car- I rying her baby. Her parents also ap- j peared with her arid she was repre jsented by Mr. C. Simmons, of i Lethbridge. i Mr. Barclay was represented by C. i F. Harris. The case was not caller' until very late, owing to Judge Beck being detained by the sittings of i court en bane, and Mrs. Barclay wai still on the stand when an adjourn- until this afternoon was made. i Judge Beck suggested that when the adjournment was taken, the two i parties adjourn, to an adjoining Toon. i for a few minutes and see if the trou- jble could not be patched up. Barclay appeared t-o be very willing to this arrangement, but his wife refused t-o meet him or have anything to say to him at all. The case is> .being held in camera.

Regina, Sask., June light was thrown on the circumstan- ces surrounding the murder of Chas. Morris, at the trial today, when John Shonfron was on the stand. He told of buying a horse from Ern- est Morris, the accused, for S435. It was this horse deal which is sup- posed to have furnished the motive for murder, Ernest Morris being al- leged to have sold the animal be- longing to his brother. Shcmfron also deposed to having been awaken- ed on morning of the murder at 1.30 by prisoner, who slept that night with him. Next morning they heard of the fire, and witness told prison- er, who mnde no comment.

It is understood that the northerly terminus is not yet. decided upon. It will come to either High River or Aldersyde. The chanc- es are more in -favor of the latter place as at Aldersyde the company owns sites on either track whreas if it to High River it will have to buy property which would run into many thousands of dollars. On the other hand by coining to Aldersyde the company will have to build a steel bridge, across the High River.
