Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 5, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta MoiHlay, May 5,1013 kwmm TEACHERS THE LETHBRIDGE JDAILY HERALD Paffe 9 National Council Women Say Eastern Supply is Depleted--Important Topics Jlonti-edl, May 3.-Saturday moi'n-Ing was devoted by the National Council ot Women to the reports of the slanding oomralttees on education and llie supervlBlon of playgrounds. Miss Ritfhia, In dealing with the oilnrallonal features of the Uominlon dPliloi-,-d that the better pay offered (ill' tein'hlnK pro-fossion In Western of one-�t the Land-seor Liona. She attu^k the polioe-tnan in the facp attd. her {riends regained- tJJe banneri'j'xq'i.nits the staff. This stvuggjp, artgejre'd - the - cro_\vd and tlie disorder yefJanie so genfTTl that ConiinlSglqnej! ".^VeUS, cojinmand-ing the mounted iplico', ojrdered the WhitohftU s.ide cle^ired. The order was carried out so roughly by the horsemen that Qoromissiiqiler Wells, noting the tewpex, ol the crowd, retired in favor of another. As. he was leaving, Wells was showered with eggs and orstnges and other missiles. Fights betyi'een the police and the crowd now be^nn, the 'chief results of which were battered faces' and minor injuries on both sid^s. Many of the rioters were arretted, but the crowds succeeded in rescuing raost ot the prisoners. There were a large number of isolated encounters, Requested to do so by the police, James Kier Hardie asked the crowd to disperse, which it reluctantly did, Mrs. Dcspard and other suffragettes spoke witiiout interference in spjte qf the interdict. Any attempt to arrest the women, in the temper ot the crowd, would probably have resulted in a dangerous situation. Addresses denouncing the government's alleged interference of tight of free speech were made by several members of parliament including Mr. Hardie, Josiah Clement Wedgwood, Liberal, and Joseph Martin, Liberal, and Robert Cunninghnrn-Qralmm,. a letter from George Lansbury, former Socialist member of parliament and now a militant suHragist, who was bound over yesterday in the sum ot $10,000 to keep the peace, was read,, demanding the right ot free speech at all times. At the Kihical church at Baywater last night, Mrs. Carrie Chapman-Catt, ot New York, president ot the International League ot Woman Suffrage, made an impassioned appeal to the British public to use every effort to suppress the white slave tralTlc between the heathen east and the west. She de'olared that this question alone wa.s sufficient reason for women to have the vole. The men's league tor woman suffrage, which was refused permission to bold a meeting ih Hyde Park this atternoon, attempted to do so. A tew speeches had betsn delivered before the police arrived and dispersed the crowd, amid disorder, o'wios to the presence of hostile crowds-Many women suffragettes tri?d to address the crowd, but all of the speakers were arrested. Two women wore arrested, one of them being the daughter of George Lausbury, the Socialist ex-mouiber ot parliament, who is now under' heavy bond to Iceep the peace.

Nlmmons; executive; Mrs. Courtfce, .Mrs. McKII-lop, Mrs. Rlgby, Mrs. Fairfield, Mrs. Gordon, Mrs. ^uchauan. Durt^ the , yfar Vie society held ten regtflar meetings with an average attendance of eleven, also three special meetings and one executive meeting. The president's report was: Ladies [vnd"'Gentlelnen:-The result of the operations of the society during the pa,at year, ending April 14th, 1913, 'will appear from the flnanoial statement and the nurse's report to have been very gratifying. The receipts from collections agd donations are considerably larger than during the preceding year, and not-Ti-ithstandlng the fact that the sale ot badges at the Lothbridge annual exhibition was prohibited and no charity ball was held, the total receipts reached practically tho same figures as during the year 19n-12. The expenditures, on the other hand, have slightly Increased owing to the large amoiint of work done by the society. It will be seen, therefore, that flnan-oially there is nothing to complain of. But the same cannot 'l^e said with regard to the Interest taken by the individual members in the work of the society. The attendance at the meetings has been exceedingly small with the result that the hu'rden of supervision has fallen upon the ghpujders of very few members. It it had not been for the faithful and intelligent attention of the society's nurses it Is feared that the anO'^^' statement would have shown very pngatlsfactoi'y results. It is to be hoped that during the ensuing year a more active interest will be taken by the members at large in the conduct of the affairs of tho society, so that there may be no decline In the steady iprpgrass that has been made since Its faundatton. The annual meeting will be asked to consider a change in the method of adminlBtratlon so as to ensure that in the absence of any one or more ot the officers from timo to time the work may proceed smoothly and without any hitch. A number ot the officers were, through a/bsence and ill health, unable during tb? past year to give the amount o� attention they would h.ive wished to the routiije work of the society and bb p. cons?-tjuenqe an undue proportion of this worH tell to be dona by a few. The annual meeting will no doubt consider the best method of meeting this conditiop In the future, 93 well fts some means of enlisting the more agt-ive co-operation and assistance of the members generally In cai'rying on the society's work. The society owes a debt of thanlts to Its nurses for their faithful attw-tlon to duty, to the doctors of the city tor their support and sympathy, and to those of the public who have gensrously qpiUrtbutsfl to the gq. cjsty'B funds a�d sp �i.nfrbl9d It to oarry o� Its goiPi mv�,' In presenting tlifs, our third annual repprt, we aro s.atiBflflij that the work of t'he mission continues to hU n great need In this city.

To the sicU in homes where the Income is vexy limited it means much to have our "loon supply" add to their meagre lot o'f bed linen and clothing, and thus give them the comfort of cleanliness they could not havo without this help, and the further benefit of medicine and necessary siiCk room supplies to those who unfortunately cannot provide these things. The city police have been very ready to provide coal and food to any needy families we have reported to them, and our relief has been given in clothing, medicine and sick room delicacies. Our Christmas relief this year was spent in giving Christmas dinners to nine families in their homes.. Toys and new clothing added to the'Christmas cheer. }m comparison with last year we i*eport an increase of 54 patients. A greater proportion of our patients have had free nurslpg, and a larger nuBiber have paid part of our regular fee. We cajl freguently on these ex-patients and as we have opportunity continue suggeations on the care and feeddiig ot intonts a,nd children, and genera! hygiene and sanitalign. The time in school is spent in assisting the >sohoo) medical Inspector with the exaraiuatlon of the pupils and in wnltlng the necessary notices to be sent to their parents. We would here express our gratitude to the doctors with whom we worked, to those who have contributed supplies and money for the work, and to those who have helped us -with words ot appreciation and en-coui'agemeot-that have meant more tp tjB at times than we can possibly express.
