Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 15, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbridgfc Dally Herald. Tuesday. March EXCITEMENT OVER A PATTEN Was Bisrid By Angry Man cfcerter People On Exchange Liverpool, March A. the Chicago speculator, who was dri- ven out of the Manchester exchange yesterday, sailed for New York to- day on the steamer Mauritania. The James A. Patten incjikM: at the Manchester. cotton .terday, has stirred ijp feeling against the brokers there be- tween whom and the Liverpool deal- ers there is so much jealousy. The local business men are anxious to j clearly themselves from a suspicion of complicity in the insult and expulsion which followed''' the ap- ipearance pf the Chicago -speculator un the lloor of .the'cotton exchange. A Liverpool merchant today receiv- ed from New York this cable mes- sage: "Is the report of the treatment of Patten at "Manchester true? Eng- land pretends friendship for America, would heathenish China be guilty of this? Patten is one of America's purest men." The recipient of the cablegram re- plied thus: "Liverpool resented the Manchester treatment of Patten. The best Manchester men are ashamed aod personally feel the discourtesy stroug- jly." j The English press extends no sym- pathy to J. A. Patten, the Chicago j speculator, who was jostled and dri- j ven out of the Manchester exchange I yesterday. The Westminster Gazette [today says: "We are glad that the I American cotton king got out of the j Manchester cotton exchange with no- thing worse ihan some hustling and Looting, hut carmot profess any sym- pathy for hira or Iris .irouuded feel- ings." The paper expresses astonishment that Patten had the "impudeuce" cou sidering the injury whkfi his opera- lions had done to the Lancashire cot- ton industries, to presume upon the courtesy generally accorded visitors from across the Atlantic. It adds: "Men who makt; corners in raw .Tm- terials, in men, life and labor are no longer sect to prison, but they 'can- not reasonably expect to he welcom- ed by the people which have suffered through their operations." 'The Pall-Mall Gazette has no ques- tion that the Chicago speculator be in his life an honest dealer "but what is interesting and import- ant is the judgment of the Manches- ter business men upon his lines which they have considered responsible." The paper calls the cornering of the necessaries of lifo monstrous and adds "It would be diflicult to draw the line between legitimate and illegiti- mate in market methods. Hut that this is such a line is coofldcit judgment of our common morality which the Manchester exchange has given rough and ready execution." Mr. Patten was to have paid a vi- sit.ito' tile cotton exeiiange before sail- abandoned tis purpose as 'there appeared to'be a possibility that his appearance would be greeted with counter deinonstrations uijiJ he had no desire to be the cause of further excitement. He did however pay a farewell visit to the corn ex- change: the course of :m inter- view Jie said, "1 went to MauciKistcc io show 1 was an ordinary not adorned witii horns and tail but simply a bull on the 'ri-.ukct as 1 UacTtold them. That the hos- tile demonstrations did not represent the best elements in the cotton ex- change is shown by the persoiul and svritten expressions of regret vhlch.I Jiave. received from leading; of Manchester, some "of whoai .virited me today to convey an expression of their keen the occurrence. I have received many letters of durhij my Liverpool. I 'five and six hundred letters from all parts of this country. Many of tbese enclosed with which I was to speculate on behalf Of the senders. Others' were begging some of the writers askiag assistance iu developing inventions. Of. course all the money sent rue was returned irn- mediateiv." EXCURSiOK RATES TO UTAH ANNOUNCED. The A.

CANALS Ottawa, March George Pel- ley brought up in the house today the question of the use by Canadian ves- sels of New Vork state canals on terms of equity with other vessels. There was for many years a feeling in Canada that the United States had not given fair play and it ap- peared to be generally conceded that no vessels of Canadian register could go from Ottawa to New York down the New York state canals on equal terms with other vessels. Mr. .Perley read a letter he had received from the 'superintendent of public works at Albany showing there was no discri- mination'against Canadian boats and Mr. Perley thought the should be disabused in some, marmei 'as the general impression Was.- that the discrimination did exist. Mr. Border of Dun-das remarked that for forty years no vessel had been privileged to use New York state canals on equal terms. When under the treaty of Washing- ton the right to use federal owner canals had been accorded to Canada the United States government had urged New York state to give us per- mission in iti> state owned canalas. Sir Wilfrid said the understanding of the matter was that the state of New York had passed the necessary legislation but subsequently regula- tions had upset it. The matter how- fvyr would be loeint Mo. BASLEY GUILTY OF GRAND LARCENY. New York, March: delib- erating twenty minutes, the grand jury in the trial to-day of Francis G.
