COLLECTED $212 AT POLICE COURT MAGISTRATE BENT'LEY HAD SIXTEEN CASES TODAY-<-Q AMBLERS PLEADED GUILTY Although there was no public celebration yesterday on the occasion of the King's birthday, it seems to have been fairly well observed in some quarters of the city. At least that is what a perusal of the docket at the police court this morning would lead one to believe. No leBs.than sixteen faced Magistrate Bentley, who dealt out justice with such promptness that by eleven o'clock, $272 had been added to the city's strong box. It was_a very fair start for the month of June, and Chief Gillespie Is of the opinion that .if the record keeps up the record for May will,be beaten quite handily. .. A. couple or raids on the poker joints wer� responsible" for such an avalanche of hard-earned dollars a'a 'were raked across by the police court clerk, 'me men were caught with the goods on them, and decided that the best way out of their .dilemma would be to'plead guilty and pay up. This was done in every case. The first .bunch, led by \Vnii?Haker, the hanker of the emporium, appeared and contributed $90.00 and costs. Baker came across with $25, while Harry Moore, Ja8. Reynolds, J. A. Carringt'on,' Geo. Fan-non, Robert Harper and Bill Nicas each loosened lip on ten and costs, as inmates of the joint. Jack Johnston, an on-looker, got off light, contributing only a five-spot. Andy Johnston was the banker of the second frenzied financial institution. He paid, over $25, while Mike Saduski, Alex. Jones, .lack Johnston and "Slim" Johnston contributed teu boneB each for sitting in on the game, which' was not a penny ante affair, either. C. W. Smith, K. .1, Jackson and Dan McMillan were standing by and getting a few pointers on the gamepand were soaked five and costs therefor. E. It. Mcfntyre and H. O. Farrow got into a nica little scrap, and both j said they were sorry when they faced the cadi. He let them off with the costs of the case.

A. ; work. | Mrs. Mitchell then explained to the convention the difference between the united thankoffering and the diocesan thankoffering. Deaconess Lampard, or Calgary, addressed the meeting with a plea that any, who intend devoting themselves to missionary work in the west might trust their training to them in Calgary. An encouraging note was struck, when Mrs"! Geddes conveyed the knowledge that a young girl from Christ church, Kdmonton, had volunteered to go out and assist Mrs. Crawford'in Africa and is now training for that work. Bishop Pinkham delivered an exhaustive and comprehensive address on the work of the W. A. and made an urgent appeal that the work of the W. A. might not be superceded by Guilds, valuable as- they may be. He dwelt on the value and absolute need of united missionary effort in prayer, work and contributions. The meeting adjourned for luncheon at the Alexandra at 1.15, when fortv-five delegates and some hostesses Irom the local Anglican churches, sixty in all, sat down at two long tables, prettily decorated with red geraniums, red and white being the W. a. colors.

The Overhead Bridge Who opened the Ninth St. overhead bridge? Nobody on the 'Council Hoard seems to know. A letter from the city engineer asking that the matter be taken up with the C.P.R. for the purpose of effecting a settlement opened the matter for discussion today. Mayor Hatch said he had given no orders on behalf of the�-city that the bridge be opened to traffic. The special committee composed of Aid. Adams, chairman ; Aid. Ash-croft and Williamson, have, done nothing in the matter. Aid. Adams stated (hat he knew the bridge had beeTi opened by the company, and thinking the whole question settled, had done nothing further in the matter. All the correspondence was turned over to the special committee, and they will at once take it up with the C.P.R. officials, and effect a settlement of all financial difficulties.
