Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 27, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta Volume V e Daily Herald Lethbridge, Alberta. Friday, May Number 1441 O'BRIEN MADE DISGUSTING SCENE Legislature Members Indignant At Socialist Member Edmoiton, May A. L.; Sifton uatil this morning Chief Jus- tice of. Alberta, is now its premier, the bouse is prorogued and on Mon- day OF shortly thereafter the new premier will announce the personnel of the mtw cabinet. What men will comprise it no one knows but him- self. Whem the House met this after- noon. Dr. Rutherford presented a resolution of condolence on the death of the late King, and made some appropriate remarks. The motion was seconded by R.- B. Bennett, who paid eloquent tribute to the de- parted monarch, and prophesied a great reign for his successor. As sooi as he had finished C. M. O'Brien, the Socialist member, arose and made some disparaging remarks about the late King, disgusting every- body present. Had he said the same things in front of a street crowd not hound by the rules of propriety, he might have been handled roughly, as il was he was squelched almost as soon as he began. He started, "The King was a man 'who worked little and ate well." Mr. Bennett object- ed to such remarks being allowed in the House. O'Brien hastened to ex- plain that he meant nothing personal and was speaking only on that sub- ject to protect himself and force the privilege of holding the floor. O'Brien declared he hated to make an amend- ment as he could get no seconder. He muttered something about not being 'allowed free speech. By the time commanding sat down every man and woman in the hall was so indignant that it is EX-ATTORNEY-GENERAL HON, C. W. CROSS a wonder the Socialist was not thrown bodily but of the house. Lieut.-Governor Bulvea then read Local Battery Of Artillery Still Has Room For Recruits ilore recruits are wanted to bring Battery No. 25, Canadian Field Artil- lery, up to its full'complement of 100 men. A number of good men have recently been taken on and there are now about fifty members. Col. Cruik- slnuik, D. 0. C., is very anxious that the battery shall turn out in full strength at the camp at Calgary next month. At least two big field days will be held during the camp, when the tactics and manoeuvres will be unuer the eye of General Sir John French. More teams are also required for guns and wagons. Horses must weigh about 1200 pounds. Drills are 'held every evening in the city market building.

Judge Mit- chell is a good lawyer and will make good as attorney-general. He will find a seat in Medicine Hat.

Dr. Rutherford was president of the Executive Council, Minister of Education and Provincial Treasurer, C. W. Cross, Attorney-General, W. H. Gushing, Minister of Public Works, W. T.

Edmonton, May most determined eft'orr. is being put this city to have Mr. Cross in the new government, but it is safe to say that Sif- ton will not listen to the pro- posals.

The morning says Hon. VV. A. Buchanan, Lethbridge, will be included in the new cabinet, but this is only a guess. Mr. Buchanan, from intimations he has made, seems to be sick of politics and prefers to devote his fut- ure attention TO business. Today1 it is rumored that Sir- ton may look after tlie attor- ney-general's department him- self. The' legislature is not likely to meet again until Oc- tober. "T" Marshall P. _E.

V The title or the lots still remains aif the city or Lethbridge and they- were purchased under the promise Jrom the Dominion government that the armory would be constructed The aioney was voted in the House Commons before rbe last but no steps towards erecting the building have, beyond that, ever beeiT-' made. On the otner hand, it 'is un-' del-stood that the Militia Department has leaser! temporary quarters oh Dufferin street from Airs. M. E. Hoy for a period of two years. The pro- j perty is now worth considerable more than what was paid for it and ATJU certainly be sold unless the govern- ment gives an undertaking to start on the building right away. "It is not a fair deal to the ratepay- ers to tie up their money in this man- says the mayor.- "Their consent was obtained only on the understand- ing that the armory was to be erected immediately the lots were secured. Their taxes are heavy enough as it is without burdening them in this manner." Calgary, and Mr. Buchanan retired ldayaEternooD for ReSJna- ne from the cabinet in February. Leaders Meet The first meeting between the new premier and the leader of the oppo- sition took place at fifteen minutes to one this afternoon, just at "the door of the Alberta Hotel.
