Zitto, fhe Italian miner i of Bteirmore who on the night of Dec. 12 last shot Mrs. Olive McDonald, also of Blairmore, with the result that she died a few days later, was this afternoon found "guilty of manslaughter" by the jury after a two-day trial. Zitto was sentenced by Mr. Justice Ives to two years less one day in the Lethbridge jail, the sentence to run j S from Dec. 14 last. It was fairly, evident after the conclusion of the csse and the retirement of the jury to bring in their verdict that manslaughter would be the verdict. There was no effort on the part of the defense to establish that Zitto had not done the shooting. That it was accidental was the principal plea of the defense, and the fact that Zitto made no effort to escape but did everything he could to help her after having given her the death wound counted strongly in his favor.

March dying Vaccination Under Debate An Amendment to Health Act Brings Question Under Fire in Legislature (Special to the Herald) EDMON7TON, Mar. subject of_ compulsory vaccination waa raised in" the legislature Tuesday afternoon In the consideration ot Bill 31, amend- ing the public health act. Major Jan. Lowry, opposition, Alexandra, said that the legislature -had .never made any definite ruling calling for com- pulsory vaccination, and on this ac- count objected to the wording amendment reading: CAny executive officer who Is cer- 3d by tha provincial board to be capable of performing vaccination or may vaccinate or Inocu- late any person required to be vac-______ __ ciliated under the provisions of the and I think ho had been drinking, pUblic health act or the regulations. 8DIi he put his arms around me and made thereunder.'.' I Mr. Zitto must have seen him through Mr. Lowry contended that tbe word-' Ing ot tho amendment recognized compulsory vaccination. Here C. R. Mitchell, provincial treasiffsr and min- ister of health, argued that the bill went no further than existing legisla- tion In this respect but merely ox- tended authority to vaccinate to offic- ials not having it now. Mrs. L. C. McKInney (Non-Partisan) Claresholm, remarked that great caution would have to be exercised as "somo sani- tary officers are not In the bast of condition when they arrlvev at towns to carry on their work." Mr. Mitchell thought the fear of compulsion might be eliminated if the words "any per- son required to be vaccinated" were changed to "any person desiring to be vaccinated." After some wrang- ling, the section waa allowed to stand, over for consultation with officials of the department of health.
