Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 6, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta TEe Lethbridge Daily Herald VOL. II. LtTHoHivwE, ALBERTA, THURSDAY, MAY I, I NO. in. COL. SMELLS SMOKE OF BATTLE Canada Should Build Dreadnoughts For War Toronto, May G. T. Denni- son, a well known military authority, speaking at the Empire League meet- ing tonight, said Germany was pre- paring for a great struggle and with- out concealment. This idea, had seized the imagination of her peo- ple who had formed navy leagues everywhere and who were clamorous for an overpowering fleet. "Our safety as a people depends upon the strength of Britain's navy, and it is not only our duty, but our keenest interest to assist to the" ut- mose of our power." The speaker believed small fleets on the Atlantic and Pacifiv would be a waste of money. A decisive fight would be decided by the great battle- ships and when the mastery of the sea. was settled by the defeat of the fleet that would end it all; scattered ships would not count. Col. Dennison strongly urged the building or purchasing of Dread- noughts by Canada for the defence of the Empire. .Canada, he said, should pay the expenses of manning ships, support ten per cent, of the cadets at Dartmouth College and have sailors trained for naval reserve. ARCHITECT FROM, THE OUTSIDE Advice Given To Claresholm Schoolboard Suspicious Chap As Room Mate Calgary, May this morn- ing a belated, traveller called at the police station and complained that he had paid lodging at a hotel for a single bed. and on retiring found he had to double up with an undesir- able bed mate. On inquiry the name of his roommate and his particular aversion to him, Sergeant Mackie was gratified 'to learn that the man was named John Isaac, for whom the police have been looking for since Tuesday on suspicion of theft. He was arrested and searched. Miscel- laneous articles in his possession in- cluded marked "United, States of with a race value of the interest coupons being also attached to the bond. The. police are investigating him furtfier. BOARD OF TRADE COUNCIL The Board of Council met at noon today and approved of the octagonal shaped building for pub- licity headquarters. It will be sur- mounted in all likelihood by a band- stand and placed where the present band stand is located on the square. The Dominion Express Co, informed the Board thai they were considering the matter of extending their de- livery limits here. PUGSLEY WONT LIE DOWN Edmonton, May action of the "Alberta Architects' Association in connection with the submitting of plans for the Claresholm public school has led the board to lay a complaint with the 'Education De- partment at Edmonton against what is considered to be a combine in re- straint, of trade. Asked by a Bulletin representative this morning as to what steps the 'department had token in the matter, D. S. Mackenzie, deputy minister of education, said that a suggestion had been forwarded by him to the school board at Claresholm to the effect that if Alberta architects could not be found to submit plans for the new school without requiring sub- mission by the school board to the stringent rules of the association, the board would be justified in get- ting an outside architect to draw up the plans. He also advised -the mem- bers of the -board to look about them and see the sort of building they desired t and have the plan of their' building -drawn in accordance -with idea being that if they knew what they wanted there would be no need of any competition among the architects. Mr. Mackenzie had no hesitation in saying that it was" ridiculous for the Architects' Association to expect that having in mind a school building, should be compelled to throw open the. submit- ting of plans to competition before any one Alberta architect would undertake .the work. II the school board submitted 'to this and paid all the architects who took a crack at it, a good figure, whether competitors or not, it would take a goodly proportion of the school ap- propriation to pay for the prelimin ary plans. The successful compet- itor would then make another charge for drawing up the plans in" detai for the contract to follow. In the letter which Mr. Mackenzie wrote to the school -board at Clares- hblfh; in their complaint, he did not commit himself to a state- ment that the architects bine in restraint of tra-de, nor did he say it was probable the government would ask the association of Archi- tects to amend their rules. Such proceeding on the part of the government would -be undertaken by the Attorney General's to do the amount in mos inefficient manner possible." f Hell, and it is more wonderful to ut Heaven into a-man's life than to -et him into Heaven. The work of revival is to lift a community into better state of. life. It is not of iaff but of God if it is of any value. The first object of a revival is to et Christians to take an-account of tock. A revival is a re-yivuig- and is impossible to revive a non- Christian until the Christians are evived.. Some people do not believe in re- cided to ask the Department of Labor to appoint a Board of Conciliation as provided by the Lemieux Act and named Pres- ident F. H. Sherman as their representative on the' board. MAY BE ANOTHER CONFERENCE Calgary', May there will be "another meeting of operators and representatives of the miners' union, assured. night H. McNeill, of Caiwnoret Amines, arrived in the and will leave again for the south this morning. Mr.' McN maintained that he did not kabw for what purpose he had been called to Macleod, by the Operators' Associa- tion, but intimated that another meeting of two parties to the strike was imminent. He stated that the general opinion -was _that if another meeting was held an agreement co aid be effected as the miners are out of funds and. the international organ- ization has refused to come to their support. From what pould-be gath- ered by the few remarks he made, the operators do not expect to make ivals or evangelistic missions. They >bject to the principle, but the Word if God is the basis of the principle. the churches ;nave been born in evivals and three-fourths of :hristians took their stand-in re-' any concessions arrived at: will and any agreement be on- the basis of the first. Macleod agreement. Speaking of the 'objection because f the excitement, Mr. Gale said that men like excitement and- hate dull times. They try to get excitement in politics, business and everything else. A little more genuine healthy excitement prompted of God would be a good thing in the spiritual life. It is true that some do not hold out after the mission is closed. Jesus Christ chose twelve and one-of them went back -and all of them did not support him very hard. Ninety- seven per cent, of men who go into business fail but they" try again.- A .arger ..percentage hold out in relig- ious life started in revivals than in anj'thing else. Other people object to the re-action Re-action always follows action. "I am not afraid of re-action but of no- action. No re-action ever followed a revival that was an injury to the church. I do not want any explo- sion that lasts only, for a minute, but a great conflagration. I want a revival of conviction. Men do not know what to believe and it my purpose to take the Word, bring out t'ne truths and place them before you. Get conviction and the Bible will be the authority of the Al- NO LET UP IN 'The revival must be one of earn- estness that is not easily lost but is solid in God at every step. The re- vival must be one of righteousness, too, in business, home and social circle as well as in the church. Some church members can pray" and' look saints but in politics, business society they give it all the lie. The church could easily win the world, for Christ if the Christian people backed it up with their living. The times the difference between his life and others. What is wanted is for Christians to live an uncompromis- ing life in Christ. If they do in Lethbridge, they will bring about a revival that the city will be sorry for. (Continued on Back CASE Very Bad Fires At Vancouver and Kamloops B. C., May early this morning destroyed the North Pacific Lumber company's pro- perty at Barnett. The loss is estimat- ed at The lumber yard and .dry kilns were saved, but six G: P. K. box cars were burned. No- body was hurt.

R. train with line- men and firemen, and carrying a fire other apparatus from Vancouver was quickly on the scene and it was due to this quick action that the fire did not do much greater damage.

Barns and houses fell prey to, the fire and many head of cattle were lost while many settlers had to leave, everything be- hind and Chasten to save their lives. While it is impossible to estimate the loss it is known that it. will reach nearly half-a million dollars. .-East of the; principal losers are N. JV Suckle, A. Jude and S. P. Matthews.

TheCrown Decides To Continue Investi- gations Toronto, May General Foy announced this afternoon tha: the investigation into the Kinrade murder would be continued. Beyond that he could not say anything. He asked for a report on the case from Dr. Bruce Smith, provincial inspect- or of asylums, and Dr. Clarke, super- intendent of Toronto asylum, who were some time ago detailed to con- duct observations in connection with the case. This will be ready in .a. few days and it is stated will con- tain several startling deductions. It is likely that an officer will be de- tailed on the case anjd that another attempt to find Miss Elliott will be made. So far the case has cost the Crown about Hamilton, Ont., May ot the jury today stated that not at any' time did they consider naming any particular person in tHeir ver- dict. The delay in rendering it was due to the manner in which the de- nunciation of unreliability of the evi- dence produced should be worded. TELEGRAPHIC BRIEFS Calgary is having a, police cens-.s taken and guesses are made that population will touch At the Stratford assizes Frank Roughmound, a negro, was found guilty of the rcurdef of Mrs. William Peake, the wife of a respectable far- mer, and was sentenced to hang on June 28th. .The evidence, showod that he had outraged his victim.

Fernie, May civic election, i held today, to vote on the water and light debentures, "brought out quite a representative vote. Both proposi- tions were carried by decided majori- ties, which insures the beginning of operations for the erection of a new power plant for the electric light system and the beginning of the con- struction if a new pipe line from Farey creek'from when the new sup- ply of water is to be obtained. The amount of bonds authorized for the water plant and the new con- nection with Farey creek is f and the .amount authorized for the purchase of the electric light plant from the .Crows Nest Electric Light and Power: Co., and for the erection of a new power house is making a total voted today of 000. Offers for these bonds at good figures have already been and no difficulty will be experienced in marketing them at good figures. With this addition to the building opera- tions to be carried on in Fernie this year, the amount to be expended in that line thifr summer will mount well up to the mark. The Trites-Wood- Co. began active operations yesterday morning on their store building which will be larger than the old one. "'W. 'H.
