Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 10, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta HEAVY RAINS AT CARDSTON Water Higher There This Year Than Any Time Since 1903 (Special to The Herald.) Cardston, June the rains floods may hope and yet hope that no serious damage may result. However, the town has stationed out a man or two for the purpose of watching the bridg- es and keeping the driftwood afloat so as to prevent unnecessary pressure from the rising waters of Lee's Creek. Yesterday the rain was continuous and the creek reached its highest point last evening since the flood times of 1903. Though there was some rain last night a gradual cessation has led to clearing weather this morn- ing. We hope the storm has passed. Unlike our neighbors in the suppos- edly warm south we have had no snow and no rain was warm and growth continued without inter- ruption. INQUIRY TO BE RESUMED Department of Labor Hopeful of Set- tlement of C. P. R. Trouble Ottawa, Ont., June several days of negotiations between the min- ister of labor and the officials the latter have agreed to accept G. F. Gait of Winnipeg as the C. P. R. company's representative on the board of conciliation and investiga- tion to adjudiciate on the matters in issue between the employees in the shops anfi the company.

DUVAL THE MODERATOR TOMMY BURNS TO WIN He is Picked to Defeat Johnson, Negro the New York, June Burns having signed up to fight Jack John- son in Nevada for a purse, the match is on at Johnson sidesteps. Johnson may want to see steamer and railroad tickets, count the money, know the name of the referee, and then ma tions about the weather and baromet- rical pressure on the day of the fight Sam Fitzpatrick, no doubt, will tell reporters that it would be much more for Burns, to stay in England and fight Johnson there 20 rounds instead of to a. finish and for a purse instead of the offered by the Rickard com- bination. By showing such an inter- est in sportsmanship Fitzpatriek may pick up a fight for Johnson before leaving fight with Squires or Palmer or Moir or Er.che, or some other of debris left in the Tommy. But when Burns and Johnson once get into the ring it will be a very in- teresting occasion. Johnson has such a great advantage in height and reach and weight that he may not .sufft-i from his usual attack of heart failure when the champion' comes to him. If Johnson's ochre-colored ten- dencies don't crop out he'll certain- ly give Burns a run of it. The opinion that Tommy will beat the big black man is growing in favor. Burns is fast and clever and has a punch. Johnson has all of these to his great bulk. But Burns is game, and that is where Johnson falls short. Of course, John- son may have improved in the matter of gameness. Ring history shows that such a thing is possible. Winnipeg, June general as- sembly of the Presbyterian Church opened its 34th annual session in xnox Church last evening. The at- endance was very large.

The Fire, Water and Light and Wa- terworks Committees of the City Council held a joint meeting last night to consider Engineer C. B. Smith's report and while the mem- bers of the committees naturally do not care to discuss their recommen- dations publicly before they are pre- sented to the council, the Herald is at liberty to say that they will rec- ommend the adoption of the engin- eer's report regarding the second force main- and the elevated tank. They are undecided as yet as to what they will recommend regarding the installation of metres but- will prob- ably adopt Mr. Smith's report in their favor. Mr. Smith's report is in favor of a second cast iron force main from the pumping station to the top of j twelve inches and laid by a separate route from the present one. He es- timates the cost of this main, six thousand feet long, buried six feet deep, including engineering and con- ingenciesi to be For reasons of insurance and to enable pumping to be discontinued during the period from 4 p.m. to 12 p.m. in winter and 6 p.m. to 12 p.m. in summer, thereby keeping en- tirely off the lighting load and econ- omizing power and labor and improv- ing the load factor of the generating stration, Mr. Smith recommends the construction of a imperial gallon elevated tank as "the best in- vestment the city can make."
