Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 17, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta VOLUME VII. 'KTHHKIDGE. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 17, 1914 NUMBER .164 Meeting Last Night Fav- ored That Step by Vote A STORMY SESSION Commissioners Slated Over the Market Question-Then Op- posed Bylaw J.T.ENGLISH PRESIDENT Of North Lethbridge Voters- Vote Not North Lethbridge Sentiment Says One those who have not yet sign- ed the petitioii, lively. Tire petition is in ray office, and is open to any care to it Thu felt; with a ring. They were uttered by" J: T. English, the Ethiopian in the recall woodpile, whose efforts, have: been concentrated for the past few on the Com- missioners' downfall. They.fell on the solemn silence of' the-cool night air, after a heated discus-sion, and an ex- citnig vote, into the ears of the North: Lethbridge .voters, who had hecn endeavoring for two hours to pasb a motion dealing with the re- call. As the vote; was being taken, stillness reigned supreme, and the suspense, could! have been shovelled iip lulb a pitchfork i 2A 10 13 There are exactly 23 supporters of; the recall petition among the mem bers of the North Lethbridge oters' .Association. Al leasf tliat is the natural con- el tlgton that fallows tiie result of'thft taken at the mefetinj; of that or- last night, for there were 2i m favoi of Mr Eughbh's motion, and it was stated on good authority -that all the north side supporters, who are-members the association, were present, -with the: exception of James Barclay There were fifteen against the mo- tion, which was finally put in the following manner "That this asso- ciation go on record as being in fav- or of the recall of' Commissioners Ifardie, Grace and Reid." CLEAR AS-CITY WATER J. R. 'Re veil, after considerable dis- cussion which was as clear as the city water, 'endeavored to> put a mo- tion that .the meeting go on record as not in favor of the recall. Mr. Knglish rose to object- that Mr. Rev- ell was not a ratepayer. Jity Revel! explained' that., the Association had, sonic to call the organization -the. voters, instead of the ratepayers' association, and that he .was-a voter, .It was pointed out, however, naine was not on the last list, -and that there- fore he had -'no voice in the meeting, so Mr. English's niot-ion over-ruled and was cariied, 23 to 15. MEETING OQOD NATURED Although the 'meeting became can- tankerous at times, there was a pre- valence of good nature and jollity, rie- fipile the fact that, the star vaude- ville performer was absent. The only reason why-the, commissioners should he recalled, in addition to those al- ready stated on the petition, was he- cause they had not carried out the wishes of the voters, and established a market on the site chosen, namely on 1st avenue .and. lath street, anil it was charged .th'at they had, con- trary wise, gone ,and established a market atrllie Kckstorm building, in finite of the voters' expression that Hie other site was1 the popular one. MARKET A BKf ISSUE On top of this made by 1lin supporters of the, recall, who were upheld in their motion by the major- ity of the meeting, that same meet- ing turned around and voted that they were not in favor of passing the Sitfon bylaw for the purpose of erect- ing buildings on their chosen site. Af- ter reviling 'the Commissioners be- cause, they had gone against the, voter's of the-north side, in placing a market ,on the south side, and ad- vancing' every conceivable argument in favor, of -the 1st.avenue and 13th street site, rought the remains of Mr. Cresswell to the surface. Since then the diver jimself succumbed while prosecuting lis searches into the ship's interior. Tho following special despatch from Rlmouskl gives tho details of the 'hiding of the first two bodies: The first bodies have been recover- ed from the sunken Empress of Ire- and. ;ilUrn.oou> ub'ouC Diver Cossobcom, of tho Yankee Salvage Co., of Quebec, came up the ladder of...the schooner Marie Jose- phine, carrying in his arms the re- mains of. a woman, who has been identified as Mrs. -Mardall. This has yet to be confirmed, and is by no means certain. .After, resting for some twenty min- utes, Cossoboom quietly, stated that he had soen another body whi'ie creep- ing along the deck wall of the ship and went down again. Before bring- ing It up, .however, having become familiar witli tho ship, and IB lying, he made fast a mooring chain to the propeller. Then 'uhrway hack, and this time [came to the surface with the body of a maii in his arms. It is believed that this is a passenger named "Cresswel! from .Letiibridge. This identification will also have to he confirmed.. The bodies were immediately embalmed, and Tvere'last night, brought to Him- from here they will be for- Quebec.
