VOL. III. Herald Lethbridge, Alberta, Tuesday, .Time DEADLOCK IN RAILWAY STRIKE Cannot Agree Men Not Anxious To Go Out Montreal, June reach- ed a crucial stage in the negotiations between the Canadian Pacific man- agement, and trainmen of the eastern portion of the system, for after a conference lasting from noon until 1-15 this afternoon it was 'admitted on both sides 'that a deadlock had been reached. It is probable there will be no new developments until after the general committee of the trainmen have met the Grand Trunk management. A meeting with the latter is arranged for 11 o'clock to- morrow morning. The C.P.R., it is understood, have made all. arrange- ments for running trains in case a strike is declared. The officials claim that traffic will not be tied up as im- portations by the company and oth- ers .could he drafted in to take the the place of the strikers. On the men's part, it is stated if the com- mittee orders them out, immediately obey, but with reluct- ance, as many do not care for the prospect of losing their pensions. It is also said that considerable pres- sure, has been brought to bear on the committee not to declare a strike. There is nothing new in the situa- tion at the Grand Trunk. Unlike the C.P.R., the Grand Trunk has not yet announced whether they will ac- cept the award of the conciliation hoard or not.

A good many people arc asking the why did not the department investigate the actions of Gouldihrite. when he living in so expensive n style on a salary which until last year did not exccrd a year. The explanation is that he gave out that he had made large sums of mon- ey in the Right of Ways mines, and this seemed to have satisfied those in authority over him. It is currcntly reported that hoth Gouldthrite and his wife were plentifully supplied with rash xi-hm'thcy Ml, one estimate ot% tlio amount in cash taken away by GonUHhriie being forty thousand dol- APPOINTMENT CKITICIZED Gen.

Mr. Vause said: "We did this be- cause we learned .that the Radio- Telephone Company in spite of its huge capitalization and its glittering promises to stockholders, had no. money. We gave the officers of the company ample time to pay, but our leniency was only abused. 'My inves- tigations of the assets of the Radio- Telephone Company revealed that many of its claims were fictitious. It was claimed the company owned a wireless station in Washington. This is untrue. The company holds title to no such property." SUICIDE OF DROWNED IN POND. Grenfeii. Sask., June Hyde, eleven years old, son of Goo.

British Press Thinks Alleged Interview Is Inaccurate London, June alleged sum- mary of an interview in the real Gazette with Admiral Sir A. Douglas cabled from Montreal, is widely published here. In it the ad- miral charges the Candians holding responsible positions under the crown are harboring the idea of annexation to the United States in their hearts and saying that so long as that idea existed in the minds of those respon- sible for making and enforcing laws, Americans will be welcomed to the exclusion of Britishers. It is assumed in some papers that the remarks attributed to Douglas are inaccurate. The Times says the expectation in Canada of a change in the fiscal policy in grain is influenc- ing public opinion strongly against any tariff modifications, likely to im- pair the value of the imperial prefer- ence.

V., June WEATHER HAS CONTINUED HOT Alarming Reports Of Damage To Spring Wheat Winnipeg, June of over one hundred were recorded at a number of .Manitoba -points yes- terday and it is cjuite as hot today. This excessive heat is generally ac- companied with strong drying iwinds.. Around the Grain Exchange today, where wheat jumped five cerite yes- terday, the bulls had it all their own' way. Alarming reports of spring, no doubt many of them 'ex- aggerated, were received from all over the country. There Is no doubt that the crop has suffered consider- ably, said an expert today, and every day's continuance of che present con- ditions knocks down the average (per- centage. Under the torrid heat the grain is beginning to head out long before it is proper for it to mature. June in this country should be wet and not too hot, instead it has-been dry, barring some thunderstorms and a record in -heat for' any month, but it will not be possible to estimate the extent of the damage until reports are received from all districts.

If they would only see the difference ibetween Dakota and Alberta cney would soon change their tune. Mr. Anderson sa.ys that be- tween Moose Jaw and Portal there are as fine crops as tee ever saw, but two hundred yaras across the. U. S. boundary they are burnt black. It was the most remarkable thing, he ever saw.
