Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 27, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbridge DaUy Herald VOL. II. LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA. THURSDAY, MAY 27, 1909. NO. Ut, MASONS HAD ENJOYABLE TIME Grand Lodge .Given a Banquet Last Night The Masonic banquet last night was a great success. The official re- porter kindly furnished The Herald with the following account of the good time The Grand Lodge of Alberta, A.F. A.M., gathered at the festive board in Caledonian hall last night. The board was clear of knots and the loads of good thing's laid thereon by the unaided efforts of the ladies of St. Monica's Guild broke nothing but vest buttons, which didn't count The banquet was altogether a suc- cess, and the assumed modesty of the -local brethren in meeting the volleys of praise from the visiting 'brethren was only veneer, and very thin at that. We know they are proud about themselves. The -genial Harry Fleet- wood was toastmaster, and every- thing went like clock work. To en- umerate the various items of the pro- gram or to praise any particular speaker, singer or reciter, would be only to make comparisons which Mr. Malaprop says are odorous. The program was as good as the grub, and everyone enjoyed himself to the full. A remark of Bro. "Dr. Stewart, W. 31., about the met a' chilling reply from a prom- .inent Edmonton brother, but we un- derstand they are still on speaking terms. M.W.G.M. Eev. G. H. Hog- bin always excels himself in felicitous and fluent speech and bis occasional appearances were warmly received. Today's Grand' Master-elect is also a speaker of much ability and weight we don't know his- weight ;but the chair will be comfortably .filled for the ensuing year. The singers who sang songs were all local and prominent ones, and when we mention E. -A. Cunningham and the member of the Skeitfr Tilley firm, sufficed. Worthy of note was the "song to classic music about a man with one hair. He wasn't was W. Bro. Luckwell's song. Particularly effective and affecting was the short speech of Chaplain R. W. Bro. Chivers in his toast, "The Fraternal More could not have been said in fewer words. "Happy to meet, sorry to happy to meet was received at the small hour of one a.m., and the brethren dispersed, full of enjoy- ment, intellectual and fraternal, but not of alcohol, which was absent from the board. Harper's orchestra was fine. ICELANDER KILLED Kenora, Ont., May Jackumson, an Icelander aged 35 was run over and killed by a work train this morning.

Ii was .also recommend that the decision of .the board should be: final and binding on both parties for a 'period .to be. decided by the the. same not to exceed three years. The recommendation was intended to afford the resumption of operations upon the terms of the previously ex- isting agreement .and that the per- sons to whom the. interifb agreement was referred, had no right to depart from the principles of such prior agreements. To this the mine workers were will- ing to agree which sufficiently es- tablished the fact that their' repre- sentative on the board is willing to leave everything carte blanche to its decision. The operators on the other hand offer an agreement which would make it binding upoa the board to certain things along the line of their contention. The mine Workers filed a proposed agreement with the Board but the operators have filed none. It. seems at the present time plain that the board will be unable to reach a decision unless they adopt the conditions insisted upon by the operators. i The board allowed Mr. Stockett's; obpection that counsel should not j be heard though the miners have mitted that the parties ought to have counsel, feeling that if they do, the respective 'lawyers' will be able to satisfy all doubts as to the interpret- ation "of the respective proposed agree- ments, Elected Today Tom McNabb Is D.G.M.
