P. Qirven and tho seizure at various points In the city of 121 case^ of Scotch whiskey, champagne \and brandy consigned to thfe "Girven Exporting Agency, Lethbridge." Girven will appear in the A. P^ P. couft at two oMock on Wednesday afternoon to answer charges of breaking*' the Alberta Liquor Act. ' Girven was released' after his arrest'on .|500' cash bail. It iB alleged, three or four more or less prominent men Bbout town, are" implicated in the case. Ever since booze was banned in Alberta nearly two years ago Lethbridge has beon free of the export, agencies--which have been trying to operate in Calgary and Edmonton. '-Whole Carload About a week ago, and 10 days bo-foro boozcless days wore introduced in Canada by law, it was whispered from ear to ear .that a whole Ifarload of.the real goods had arrived InLeth-br'ldge. The A. P. P. heard'the rumor and Inspector Piper at once endeavo?;-ed to'secure from Edmonton some information as to the status ot tbfb. Qirven Exporting Agency In' whos/name the wet goods had been shipped into the province. In the meantime Detectives Hesketh and Wigg wore, put to work shadowing the agency's activities, and after being out all night Monday-night they learned that the boozo was being carted about surrep:. tltiously, a few cases being put in-one warehouse, a few in another, and so on. It .is known that no lease from anyone in authority had been granted in the case of one warohouso where 37 cases were found stored. Inspector Piper decided that a company,- whoso BOlu power is to export liquor tO' another province, was acting In a-m^ost susplciuus manner, and action >waB' taken in the arrest ot Girven, who, it is. claimed, is a citizen of Virden, Man., and also formerly of Edmonton.. Girven, It j8 stated, Is undeffitood to have, been advlsedby 'a prominent Kdinon-ton lawyer thpt ho was within thVlaw in bringing in the booze under i aa exporting agency. -S. J. Shepherd will prosecute the case for the attocpey general's department. >, ' London, March 27.-A hea^ attack was made during the night against-the new British line south of the Somme.
