Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 12, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1918 TITE LETHBRIDGE DAlLr ^fhlflALD PAGE SEVEN Hkh and Poor, Young and Old, Generous and Mean, Kept the Magistrates Busy f Though J^ag'lstrate Irwin called olt police court cases on Monday to Ijbelebrate the iaig event, the Rotarlana weren't sbrgenerous. Instead they aet up a Kangaroo Gourt and with a big force of special cops, aided by Chief Hardy they arrested so many and' had their two magistrates, Messrs. George MacKay and R6y Davidson working so smoothly] that hy the time court was adjourtica at 11 o'clock they had enriched the treasury by $527.07. What was'it-'all lor? For the best cause in the woild-a Christmas tree for the kiddles ot the soldiers of Lothbridge. That's a job the Rotari-ans have taken on themselves and like the live wires, they are, they are go-! Ing to make a good job ot It. ! The idea ti'r^t came fpm Commis-i eioner Freeman. He suggested in the ) morning that the Kangaroo Court and 'Bpecial cops get biJsy for the Red Cross. He passed the Idea along to the Rotary Club, who were quick to ' take it up, but they decided tha', as the Red Cross would not be so much In need of;.fund/with the war over, Re is not Krlootly wonnd* ed.

And what better day than the day on w.hich fighting ceased, for securing funds to see that the kiddles whose fathers arc istlU In Europe in khaki have ^ real Christmas! So the llotarlans went to work. Chief/ Hardy supplied some old uniforms and helmets, and bands were secured with the letters "S.P.,"i)an(l about a dozen of them took to the streets early in the afternoon. Two courts were set up In Victory Loau headquarters, and all afternoon and'.evening arrests and convictions were the. order. A few objected, hut ooily a very few failed to pay their fijies. The usual tine was $1. With Some it was $5. The city auditor was arrested hecauBe he could boast nb children and was soaked $5. A young lady who celebrated by appearing in boys' clothes was arrested at night, when the court was moved over to the dance on the street. She had no money to pay her fine, so bad to mount a table and step dance, whltth. she did to a nicety. Another isttoiilng looking young lady carrying an American flag wap arrested for baying the stars and stripes displayed. Sbei had no money either. A good lobfttng young fellow .stepped up and p'ald^her fine on condition that she dance with him. She did, but the young man was arrested a few minutes later for being out ot step. Every 'excuse was a good excuse for an ar-Jrest, It was a lot of fun for the crowd and about 600 gathered in front at the Victory Loan headquarters all afternoon to watch proceedings. And now the court Is still open. Anyone who wants to donate to this good cause can get himself fined at the Victory Loan office and receive a receipt worded "Exempt, from further contribution to the Soldiers' ICiddies' CJiristmaa Tree.Fiind." � At the. Tegular meeting of the city council, which was postponed from Monday owing to the celebration, it was decided this morning that treasury notes for |131,000 sliould be is-yued against outstanding taxes, this money to, be uasd to pay the overdraft against the city's currojzt account at the Bank of Montreal and to purWiase another piece of molor fire apparatus at an approximate cost of f 10,000. ' The issue of tliese notes is subject to sanction both by the board ot util-jties and a vote of the people, and a money bylaw will ho submitted about six weeks hence if the sanction of the utilities board can be obtained. Of the money .the |108,000 is in lieu of the money paid fon the filter plant, against which no capital debentures have ever been issued. The purchase of the fire apparatus is desired by Chief Hardy in order to give a duplication of the LaPrance pumping truck. The unpaid taxes on which the treasury notes will be issued amdmit to $364,000, covering from 1914 up till the end o� 1917. Much of these taxes is not subject to collection at the present owing to the moratorium which will bo lifted some time after peace is declared. The council also authorized the pUV-chitae of a Ford one-ton truck for the electric department at an approximate cost ot 11000. The council also noted that Nov. 15 Is the last day on which those who have not paid the'lr 1918 taxes may arrange with, the city for payment so that no drastic action to Collect will he taken.

T\Tille the rest of us were celebrating you turned* out one of the finest pipets � I have seen. It was full ot telegraph . news and other news. I don't see how you did it.

Many other citizens have had occasion to tell us how well wo served the L6thbridge public mtbe wayrof making the news available. Fernl^ wired how it appreciated the 6arly special.

It is as good. as laundry soap can be. It is bigger, weighs more, and lasts longer than any other cake at the pric'e. When yoii buy it compare the size. When you use it compare the, quality. CM Soap ii math in the Proeter A GambWFaetiitrw Gold Mayor Hardle this morning tabled a letter at the council meeting which he had received in answer to one from him to General Mewbum, minlstr er ot militia, asking that Lethbrldge | be presented 'Wlh some war trophies.

A general statement as to the plan to be followed in distributing war^trophies to the cities of Canada will be Issued to the press shortly, the letter said. W. A, Buchanan, M.P., has already placed a request with the government for war trophies for Lethbrldge. Most ' people think that Lethbrldge being an artillery town should receive a whole battery of captured .Gorman guns. , ' ^ LOCAL DOCTOR "I firmly believe; that the we^aring of masks is absolutely unsanitary, doing far more harm than gopd/' said] Dr. Lovering to the magistrate this" morning in the city police court. The doctor .was arrested last week for failing to wear a mask and voiced a. strong prijtest against them this morning. He was fined the usual $1.00 and costs, and it is understopd that he will appeal the judgment i to. nialte a test case. "There are a lot of other directions in wttioh the police mlght.iuru their activity rather than on the niiask Ouestion," said the doctor. Six other delinquents were picked np qp Saturday night, Pete,MeriBpc-\ia, A. Merlencko, 0. Merlencko, j Ji; Gegler and T. Anydras. "rhey all pal* the customary fl.M and 'costs;. - .. L The war is won. The guns are silent'-'the trenches are vacanU-bloodshed has ceased-'Vidory is triumphant'-'Freedom is assured. Germany, the beaten, whirnpering bully of the nations, lies stripped of po^t, whih' ing for mercy, shudderingly awaiting the righteous retribution to be exacted for his fiendish crimes against outraged civilization. A war-worn world is nursing its wounds and planning for a future of peace arid universal freedom. In this day of thankful joy and^glmiCiis triumph let us rwt forget the imperatweM^ lying immediately before us. Let us manfully, dutifully and deter^ minedly round out the nation's splendid effort. ...... Let us be as bi0nthis triumphant day as our men have beeri%eroic in din and bloody peril of battle. a 'I 46823? ;
