SOAK THE PUBLIC Ottawa, Nov. 4.-^The Board of Conciliation, under the Lemieux Act, ,. vhich conducted an inquiry Into the differences between the Hull Electric Company, �nd its employees, has award-ed'both conductorB and motor-men an increase of about two cents per hour. ' (Continued from Iront page). Chief Davis himself was present at the meeting with all the aldetmea present except Aid. Ashcrolt. Commenting on the letter ct resignation Mayor Hatch said he �)clicved It was a matter for the whole council to take up in police committee. Personally he disliked very much to lose the .services of a chief who so tar has proven himself a competent RcaC ot the department. Speaking to tTie council on his resignation Mr. Davis stated brielly that he could not consider lemKning in Lethbrldge without some form of protection. He had since coming here received offers ot similar positions where protection would bo awttded him, and under the circumstances ho could not do other than resign. It was decided to deal with the rc-! signation of the chief at a meeting ol > the police committee later la the week. The Police Report Other police matters were brougltt up through reports from tho Chief Constable. In his monthly report for j October he specially mentioned the! recent police strike, giving a history' of the case. Me stated that in appointing Inspector skelton from the Toronto force ho had deliberated a long time, and had only done so after a survey of the material of the old forco had led hira to the belief that there was not a man whose ability and dcportnfciit would warrart his promotion. He also mentioned that the police force was now on a fairly solid basis'. and hoped that he would soon ,bc able { to report that the force was attaining a more suitable standard ot efTi-ciency. In connection with recent Important arrests the chief specially mentioned Sergeant, now Detective Sergeant, Kroning. He also submitted prices on winter uniforms and recommended that a complete outfit be purchased at a cost of $1287, if ordered from Toronto. While he understood that the department was in the habit of ordering tho uniforms at home ho believed, they could get better prices from' Toronto. In the latter connection Mr. Thacll, ot Thaell and Dodd, addressed the council, stating that they had a force ot five men in their tailor shop and believed they could handle the work at very nearly the same price as Toronto firms. They had made the spring uniforms and were prepared to submit tenders tor the contract tor the winter supply. Mayor Hatch stated that it was the rule ot the council to have as much work as possible done at home and they would give the whole question careful consideration. "CURLF WHITNEY'S TRIAL STARTS CHARGED WITH RECEIVING ANIMALS STOLEN FROM THE INDIAN RESERVE St. John's Presbyterian Church, Pt. Perry, has ex-tended a call to Rev. W. J. West o� Bluevale.

The condition of his clothing seems to give the clue that he was killed elsewhere, and dragged there by the collar ot his coat. In this case the mystery grows deeper, and although every eflort is being made to locate the person or persons responsible lor Durda's death, so far no real clue has been found. What was the motive for the ' vjI deed ? Was it a direct result of a quarrel during the wedding festivities in Geo. Kotan's house. Kolan him-.self denies that there was any trouble all afternoon or evening although tlicy were all fairly rinmk before the dance broke up. The bride and bridegroom also deny any knowlcage �I a quarrel. Certain it is that the tCi-year-old bride was not the motive. There was no quarrel between Wypon and Durda. If there was a quarrel between Bcsoia and Durda, thti rest ot the party confess complete iguor-unco of it. Should Have, Uceu Found Earlier The distance between the house of the wedding feast and the spot where Durda was found is only one block, about two hundred feet. The other inmates of the house claim that hotli the murdered man ami the one oti whom suspicion rests left about 11 o'clock, although it might have been later. Chairman Wilson, of the Stafford Village council, who has liecu working on the case with the police, claiiHS that, if Durda had liccu ii\�r-dered where the body was found, it would have been discovered earlier, as it was found nn the main street, where miners are continually pas-'^iug back and forth at all liour.s of tho night, and one could not pass dowiv Main St., or 7tli Ave., N., without almost stepping on the victim of the tragedy. This .seems to bear oii� the contention that Durda was not struck down where found, but was mufdered clscwlicre later in the nighty and the body dragged there, lii this case the police are making euquivios to find out where Uesoia and l)urd;i parted, and if they wont elsewhere after tlic wedding dance. That it was a drunken quarrel brought about by some cause unknown IK as far as the police have been able to get in solving tho mystery. It is well known to the residents of the district that s.�ii"al Italian houses on tliat street keep liquor for sale. Tliese places have for some time been a revelling place for those who carouse, and it may bo that Durda went to one of these houses, anil there became mixed up in a quarrel which led to his death. Victim No Relatives Hoi� Durda was about 48 years of age, and uuinatfiod. Ho has no relatives living in Lethbrldge, although it is understood that ho has a brother, George, living iit Macleod. Like all Russians, ho was quanelsome when drinking, and this nuay have been tlin cause oC last iiigUt's tragedy. Near the hoilv a. nitin ivas toiiiuj. hut it iti not known whether this belonged to the dead man or not. If it wa.s it will do away with the theory that he was murdered elsewhere and dragged to. the John street crossing, but so far the police have been unable to fi.v the ownership of the pipe. Several men have been detailed on the case today. Every clue is being followed to the limit, hut owing to the fact that they have to deal with foreigners, the police are hampered at every turn. W. F. Wilson is giving every assistance in running the murderer to earth as lie wishes to clear up the mystery and prevent Stafford ; Village having another stain on its nante, which owing to events of the past lew years, is none too good in Lethbrldge proper. Constantinople's Water Supply (Continued from front page) "Do not think that the great powers are slower than other people to adjust their own views to the march ot events, Tlie powers are oxclianging views lu regard to the position to the neiir east but it must be a very delicate matter for tbom to interfere between two powers unless they do so at the request ot both." Asked as to whether Great Britain could not follow the precedent ot Mr. Roosevelt in the Russo-Japanese war. Sir Edwaixl Grey did not reply. Sir Edward, referring again to the war, said nothing untoward had yet happeneil at Constantinople. The situation there reiiiained aa It was yesterda.v, tho Elty being in a state of apprehension as to what might happen.
