D. B. Harkness For some weeks the pastor and congregation of the First Baptist church have, been looking forward to the time when, the repairs and alter- ations would be completed and the church would be ready for the spec- ial re-opening services. The pastor, liev. W. HeiU, was a leader among the volunteers wno so energetically devoted their time and means so that the church might be enlu.rgeti and beautified. All could be pardoned yes terday for feeling prkle, for the work has been well done. Partitions have been removed and the auditorium reseated with com- fortable chairs. The building has been painted decorated in appro- priate tints. Much of the material and labor was donated by members of the congregation. For example, one man. gave the sidewalk, another the paint, another the pulpit, etc. So far they have received about in contributions and promises, while the total expense was about but yesterday's collections would help reduce the balance. As yet the congregation has not solicited con- tributions from any outside of their own church. The superintendent of Baptist Mis- sions for the four Western Provinces, Rev. D. B. Harkness. j who is on a tour of the West, pre- sided in the pulpit both morning and evening. In the morning he preached an ex- cellent sermon on the text found in Luke where Peter said "Mas- ter, it is good for us to be referring to the transfiguration scene- As an introduction the speaker re- ferred to his first visit to Lethbridge and the occupation of the remodelled church by the congregation. The speaker drew many practical lessons which could be learned from the in- cident of Peter's remark at the Transfiguration of the Saviour. "The old-time fisherman was great- ly honored by being present at the transfiguration. God's gentlemen are not known by the clothes that they wear. What were the motives that moulded the personality and charac- ter of Peter The disciples of Christ ever had the shadow of the cross be- fore them. We are like Peter in be- ing- impressionable with the influ- ences of nature and nature's God. To this was added the fellowship of Peter with Christ and Mos'es and Klias. The re-action of the past was upon him and he wanted to be with them forever. It was simply a pretty dream. Yet if granted, it would not develop sterling manhood in Peter. On and on. must be the everlasting struggle of the soul that seeUs the truth. "A man must always be what he Pursued Fellow Workmen and Slew Five of Them Surnerville, Mass., June ;i maniac look, John Murphy turned from pig sticking to maukiliing in the NbrUi Packing and Provision Company's slaughter house today and driving his fellow workmen before him like a herd of swine, slew five of them and wounded four others. Among tlie wounded is Dr. Daniel S. Hayes and Government Inspector Walt ham. Shortly after two .o'clock be. sudden- ly uttered a "terrible shriek and jumped at Dr. Hayes, waving his 15 inch razor-edged knue in his hand. He cut Dr. Hayes a deep gash in the neck, stabbed him over the heart and practically dismembered him. The terrified workmen rushed for the door, but were not quick enough to escape Murphy who ra.ii after them, slashing right and left. Every man be struck went down with a groan. The men plunged down stairs with Murphy after them and at every landr ing he struck somebody. Oajthe sec- ond floor one of the workmen, -an Italian seized a heavy bar of iron and felled ;Murphy to the floor, but Mur- phy was quickly on his feet and wounded another man. On the street, floor he was given another ter- rific blow on the head and hi.s knife was wrenched from his hand. Two policemen came to assistance and Murphy was, given a fearful beat- ing before he was finally overpowered. Murphy is 50 years old, weighs 200 pounds and was regarded as the strongest men in the pl-uit. He had been engaged in pi killing for the same company some years.

FORESTERS AT KNOX CHURCH GO AND SEE THE COLONIES Lord Rosebery's Adivce-The Imperial Press Con- ference Ottawa, .June announce- ment in a Montreal paper on Satur- day to the effect that the Canadian government has -rushed into arrange- ments with Hawthorne, Leslie Cootc Co., of Newcastle-on-Tyne, for immediate construction of. a of vessels for the proposed Canadian auxiliary navy, is on the face of it absurd. The various ship building firms of Great Britain are alive to the fact that Canada in course of a short time their services and have not been slow to get into touch with the Minister of Marino and Fisheries, but it is safe to say tbat until the imperial naval defence conference is held in July no con- tracts will be let. nor is it likely that the real character of Canada's navy will be taken up by the con- ference.
