RESTAURANT Altercation Between Farmer and Thresher Over a Bill Cowley, Oct. case that has been, creating considerable interest in Cowley and vicinity for several days past was ventilated in the police court here this afternoon. The trouble arose through J: C. Drury, a wealthy rancher near Cow- ley, refusing to pay in full for his threshing and claiming the right to charge against the account the full value of. some sixty bushels of wheat which he claims he was docked on in- spection at Fort William because of broken or cracked grain which he al- j leged was'the fault of the machine. i The amount in dispute was REPARATIONS FOR 'and he also claimed that the law, 4 RAINY RIVER BURGLAR CAUGHT Toronto Ont., Nov.

Schmousky told de- tectives on Saturday that'plans for the robbery of the bank had been made in St. Paul, Minn., where he and two other foreigners had" been working. They went from St. Paul .to Duluth and then crossed over to Canada and built a shack in the bush in the Rainy River district in order to familiarize themselves with the lo- cality and the bank's surroundings. Schmousky has made known to the authorities names of two foreigners who helped him rob the bank. He declares, however, that he never han- dled a revolver during the robbery, but simply, submitted to dictation of the. ringleaders of the gang, who had previous experience as bank robbers and safe blowers.- LIBERALS OF FERN1E IN FIELD (Continued from Front Page) since its first settlement, and A.

Herewith are the true facts of the case: It is perfectly true that Jim Kuowl- ton came in first, but he does not win the race or cup, having been disqualified by Judge Whiteside- Say, Mr. Upton, how did that cup go by wire-or by freight? To my certain knowledge it still lies in Mr. Cameron's store. Mr. Brandon also made a foolish break in signing that certificate but moVe especially in stating in the "Coleman that Mr. White- side was awaiting: the decision of the "Alberta Amateur Athletic Associa- tion." As .Wh'iteside pointed out to Brandon on Friday this was entirely, false at the time.
