Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 14, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta SENSATIONAL ESCAPE OF The Leihbridge Daily Herald Letiibridge, Alberta. Tuesday, .him Number 155 LEAGUE FOR CHECKING GERMANY Extraordinary Alleged Interview Has Been Published Paris, June. extraordinary alleged interview by an unnamed jour- to'answer for the murder of a while man, effected a sensational escape from the deputy sheriff in charge of him Juat as the Soo train No. 10S was pulling out of the station. The deputy chief of police at Ken- mare headed a yosse this morning which is scouring the counrry for the murderer. No trace of him has been found. The names of the, colored man or deputy sheriff cannot be learned, The officer boarded the train with his prisoner somewhere near Medicine "Hat, AUn. He was handcuffed to the seat on one of the day coaches. The deputy left him for a moment just as he was pulling out of Kenmare. The prisoner in some way got the hand- cuffs loose from the seat and made a break for liberty. He met the. con-' rtuctor in the vestibule and dashed 'him aside and jumped headlong through the vestibule window. The DUNSMUIR IN ANOTHER SUIT Jumped From Train With Handcuffs On Minot. N. D., June morn- ing fit 2.30 o'clock the colored man being1 taken back to Stillwater, Okla., nalisL with Premier Briand, has been published.'' 'According to the story the premier, gave thcj journalist to under- stand that owing .to the Belgian King's .'pro-German proclivities, France, Russia and England bad en- tered together to checkmate Ger- many's designs. The alleged interview points to Gesmany's need lor room to expand, and Bismarck France and England to divide Africa, the expansion must necessarily be Europe. The immensity of the Ger- man army and the ambitious plans of the navy, docks and the Kiel canal are instanced as evidence that they arc not aiming to realize any beautiful dream.of universal peace. Briand is represented as saying that the coun- tries concerned are pledged to a big naval expenditure, and will get the appropriations without much trouble. I There is little doubt but what the train had gained a good headway. For cntire story is faked, as no states- man would thus commit himself, ev- en'were it possible. some reason or other the deputy in his confusion at rhe man's escape did not stop the train. It was be- lieved possible -that he could not have survived the leap from the -window and he was confident that his man would be picked up by the side of the railroad track seriously, if not fatally injured. The deputy came through to Minot and went back on train No. 107 with the chief of police' and others. He has been scouring the country all day. There is no 'trace of the murder- er. He is still handcuffed as the handcuffs can be opened only by the application "of machinists' tools or the keys in the hands of.the deputy. Foot prints were found in the soft ground near the lake Kenmare 'but stop at the lake shore. The man may have entered the water and walked a short distance to cover up his trail and now: be .hiding some whe-e in the vicinity of the town. Most Sensational In the History Of B.C Victoria, B. C., 'June ,13. What promises to be the most sensational law suit in the history of the, prov- ince comes to trial June 22, when Henry Croft and others will bring ac- tion against Hon. James Dunsmuir and nine other descendants, claiming for alleged conspiracy re- specting an option on lands in the Esquimalt and Nanaimo Bill. The defendants are owners of lands in the Cranberry and Strawberry and Oyster districts. The plaintiffs claim that they obtained options on this land and commenced their develop- 1 r rnent as coal and negotiated for the sale of their rights. They al- leged that the defendants conspired to the granting of a second option to cloud their registration of the first option in order to prevent competi- tion in the coal producing business in which they claim defendant.Duns- muir, has monopolized. The defense is a denial, of these allegations' in toto.
