RUTHERFORD'S RESIGNATION Where the Fire Alarm Boxes Are Located -How Used Lethbridge has now just completed the installation of a fire alarm sys- tem which without doubt is along the most complete lines in operation in Canada. This system includes thir- ty-two fire alarm boxes, a two panel switch board with a capaciCy for four fire alarm box circuits and one, gong or circuit, indicator. At pres- ent only two box circuits arc used. Thc circuits arc to provide for the anticipated growth of the city. A COMPLETE SYSTEM The, system is so arranged that by yuiling a lever in any one of the box- es in any part of the city the stable door opens, thc gong sounds the box number and thc indicator shows in plain figures the number of the box from which thc alarm is sent. At the same instant the alarm is sound- ed in the two fire hallsiof the city, in the police station, awl at the pump- GERMANY HAD A SECRET AGENT Premier Makes No Statement In House-Marshall and Lessard ive Not r Resigned MURDERER OF THORBURNS DIES Canadian Parliament Spied On By the Kaiser would comeback tp'the cabinet' At-!
