Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 11, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta VOLUME VII. LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1911 RUSSIANS READY TO SIOOP NUMHER 281 ON CRACOW CAUSED I ER Finding of Judge Carpenter as Special Commissioner-Coal Company Not Criminally Negligent, but yentilation Might Have Been Bet! er-Two Amendments to Mines Act Recommended "The only solution tlioretore, that I can arrive iit, as n result of the whole evidence adduced at the enquiry, is that the diaasiler was caust-a by an ex-iploslou ot gas, the origin and seat o� wlilch is unascertainaljle, this explosion tclng augmented by the ignition of dust tluouglioiit the mint'." Thefio words, taken from the concluding paragraphs of tlie finding of Mia Honor Judge Carpenter, as coniniiasioner to emiuiro Into tln> causes of the HlUcrest mine disaster, is as close as tlio public or IIk; bereaved ones will ever come to knowing the exact cause of the mine horror which on June 19th last snuffed out the lives of 189 men. The report ot Judge Carpenter, wliicli is appended iierelo, is tlio result ot the action of the provincial government in appointing an independent comraisslou to entiuire into the disaster for tlie purpose ot arriving at the cause of the holocaust if iiossible, and to bring in  reeoniuiendations v.ith a view to the avoidance of siniiiar disaslors in the future. The commission has been unaijle to locate tlie cause, Die jnoii such as Ihc mine manager and the overman viho would bo likely to know, iiaving lieen numbered among the victims. It was tliereforc necessary to ^vork around the facts which everyone knew, apply expert evidence to tlicso facts, and arrive at a conclusion more or less sntisl'actory. The direct cause of the disaster, it is tliouglil, was either the careless ness of some miner or a l)l()wn-out shot. Which-no one will ever know. Tlie llamo or spark caused by one of those agencies is lliouglit to luive ignited a pocket ot gas, wliicli with tlie dust of a "fairly tiigli explosive character," as analysis lias since proved it, siu'cad -the explosion till it became a death-deaHjig agency iliGl w'ilV make June iK, lUM, a day to be sadly remembered lor a long time in tiie I'ass coal lield.

DOUBLE. OPFBNSIVB lx)ndoii, Nov, 11.-Yesterday all the armies were at each other's throats- the Russians ciasln gin cavalry engagements along the German frontier; the Rusaians still harassing the Austrians In Galicia and the French, British and Belgians holding back what appears .'jtii'i to be a tremendous at-tempt to break through the Allied line in the vicinity ot Ypres. Many dispatches speak of the movement of German troops eastward front Belgium as forecasting the necessity of reinforcing along the eastern frontier, but neitlier the French nor German official statements yesterday afternoon indicatPd any slackening iii the violence of German attacks in West Flanders. In fact, the French statement sa:'a that between the se* and Armentieres the opposing force* were both acting on the offensive. GERMANS PUli:P.A.RB RETREAT, As to the outcome of this double offensive, the rival contentions are ab-solutel.v contradictory, tiie Germans c^diiiVlfig S'ibw' progress neari Ypres, and the French asserting that the German attack there was beaten back.

ENEMY'S FORCE WEAKENS The situation along the battle line in France proper, from the standpoint of the Allies, was summed up in. a dispatch from an "observer with tho guns, and is here open to counter at- Indian corps," who says there has lack by the Belgians, whose field been no marked change any where, army occupies the fortified line of'ths though he professes to see a gardual Ypri's canal from Dixmudc to the | woakeninR of_the Germaii attacks. coast, netwcen Di.xmude and Ypres it is held bv the French and. from Ypres A GERMAN TRICK Aside from the railitaiT aspects of the war, what stood out boldest today through -trmenticrcs to Bothiine, just | the wii , j ... . . west of Labassee, the Uritis'.i ' army f'Vas Germany s reported threat to cut That ihc rcniarliS made by some of ihe Calgary shippers of live stuck an-eiit the iiuarantinc regulations cstvib-lished in several of the states \)\ ihe t'nitcd States Depart'nuiit of .\6ricul-luie, owing to the serious pro, or-tion.s as.suined by .t.'ic foot and lu'juth discas pa cnpiihn;/; of the price, to send liv stc.jK iinces iolwgganinj^., is tlu- opinion of several of the largi'st shippers in this vicinity.
