Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 4, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 The Lethbridge Daily Herald VOLUME V. PRICE-FIVE CENTS Lcllibridgc, Alberta. Monday, November 4, INTERFERING WITH CHIEFS CAMPAIGN Has Alderman Intimated that Raids on Red Ligh District Must Will Ask Council for Protection and Guarantee of Position Is it a fact Unit'ihe recent police Interference in connection with the segregated area has raised tho ire ol certain persons who .profess to hiii-o a frl.rd at court in the City Council? Strange whisiierlllga are being wafted to and fro on the street this afternoon to tlio effect tlmt'nio Chief of Police had better case 0, Mse his job will be in jeopardy. The Herald, by a little careful reasoning, is inclined to the belief that there is already a "nig. ger" on the fence. Moreover, it is to leii-rn that the Minister- ial association intend appearing be- 1'ore the Ciiy Council tomorrow after- noon. For what reason, the Herald does not o.vaeUy know, but everything points to the conclusion that there will be sume important business to transact, the outcome of which will depeiit] upon whether or not the Chief of Police will continue hero or not. It is.very plain that the Chief of I'o- 3ice must be protected in the dis- charge of his duty, for if lie is not al- lowed to carry out. the law without fear or favor, it is certainly not likely that Lethbridge will over get a Chief vl Police of ability to come here. There will be developments at the Council meeting tomorrow, unless ths Herald is mistaken. At tho last meeting of the council, Chief Dai-is, through Mayor Hatch, asked that he be given a five-year con- tract, on account of the recent trouble in the police force, which, he was evidence, thai his Job was not pe maiient. He claims to have come- Lethb-ridge on the understanding tha the chiefship was under the control fi police commission. Not finding police commission in force hero h naturally believes that a change I municipal authorities may leave bin without a job. At the meeting of the city counc tomorrow afternoon, the chief wi'L likely ask that he be given a five year contract. The chief wants a five-y-ear contruc to assure him of: permanency in hi position. He will, however, waive thi If a police commission composed. the district judge, the police inagis trab and the Mayor is appointed take complete control of the polic Uaiuloids of threatens to rltmoi the sjstem I )nd coal aloni, tin, Lethhullgo Five thousand men are affected fronlj yards every evening. coast to coast and allhouth it maji" It also rumoitd on good author po'-iiblc to continue hlnppiiij, fer ilitv tint tnktt clerks m manj ot tho few davs unlebb the trouble is lirger centres are contemplating a ily adjusted the shipping facilities ol Mmpathetic strike should ihc strike the coinpin) bo tied Of the freight clerks and truekcrs be- 'P- {come serious.
