ALLIED FLEET HAMMERING UP DARDANELLES WITH 15-INCH GUNS Raymond is Happy Today -I- -I- -i- Work on the Factory Stops "r v" Does Government Object? Raymond, Alta., March on dismantling the Knight Sugar factory for removal to Layton, Utah, stopped suddenly this morning. The Dyer Go. of Cleveland, in charge of tHc work, issued the order, ttll- jng the men to conic around tomorrow morning when they will be paid off, What is the cause for the sudden cliancie in plans? The Dyer Co. refvjscd to talk. Not a word can be gathered from the Sugar do, officialc, who absolutely refuse to divulne the secret. Eut there is a strong feeling prevailing around Raymond that the pro- vincial government has stepped in and demanded a "show-down." When the coriTJanv first came to Raymond they were given a large acreage of Irnii, freedom from taxation for 20 years, and the government arranged to firing the machinery, worth msnv thousands of dollars, across the line duty free. It is firmly believed the government waited until it became evident that the company did not intend to fulfil its contract, when they decided it was time to move. And the result so is highly satisfactory to Hay- monri. Death Calls Dr. McClure; City Loses Good Citizen FIFTEjBN INCH NAVAL1 GUNS ARE BUSY HAM31ERIXG THE DARDANELLES TOUTS.
