Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 13, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbridge Daily Herald VOL. II. LETHBRIDQE, ALBERTA. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 1909. NO. 283. CHANGES IN THE CITY SCHOOLS High and Public De partments To Be Separated TELEGRAPHIC BRIEFS The Odessa municipal council has petitioned Emperor Nicholas to dis- franchise' French voters. Governor John Burke, of North Da- kota, has named. Fountain L. Thomp- son, of Cando, States Sen- ator to succeed the late Senator Johnson, who died in Fargo several weeks ago. Thompson is a Demo- crat. G. S. Craig, Superintendent of the Excelsior Life Insurance has been in Halifax ten days, checking the accounts of M. C. MacLennan, the Halifax manager of the company. Mr. Craig said that Mr. MaeLennah's accounts are short PEACE REIGNS AT CAIRO, NOW The School Board took a very im- portant step last 'night when they 'passed a resolution '.by which the High School and Public School de- partments will become separate in- stitutions. The High School is in a separate building now, and on ac- e-cunt of this as well as in view of giving better supervision to the puo- lic school work, .the Board decided to separate the two institutions place W. A. Hamilton, the present principal in full charge of the public school system as .principal and su pervisor to which duties he will his entire time. One of the teachers of the High School Department, Jos. Morgan, Ts WILL NOT SELl THE SCHOOL Bailey Si. Building May Be Needed Again Soon MHita Likely To E advertise for two teachers for ti High School, a principal and anothe; specialist, to make with Miss JBen- "nett, a .High School staff of three. The change is to take effect Jan. 1, 1910. The Board granted the request of Miss Beryl Nimmons for a three leave of absence to take a special course in art work in Toronto.. They will advertise for two teachers at once, one to take Miss Nimmon's place during her absence and another to take a III class made necessary by the overcrowding of the present classes. Miss f Bessie Hazell having under- taken the work of Kindergarten as- sistant with Miss Ault at the cen- tral Kindergarten, was appointed to the position at of per; month. The meeting of the Board was a special meeting called to consider these things, which had bee-n previous- ly discussed by the committees. Those present were Chairman Fleet- wood, Trustees Stewart, Johnston and Austin, and Principal Hamilton. MAY BUY HUDSON .BAY CO STORES London, Nov. is learned on what seems good authority that Har- rolds Stores, Limited, which is on6 of London's greatest emporiums, has offered the Hudsons Bay Co. 55.000.- 000 for its stores in Canada. Mr. Burbidge, managing director of Harrolds, visited Canada last sum- mer, going out at the same time as Lord Strathcona, and it is known that he made exhaustive investiga- tion of the shop methods of the Hud- Co. at its various Canadian centres. I Mr. Burbidge is also honorary trea- surer of the Chamberlain Tariff Com- mission, and is keenly interested in the extension of British trade with Canada. He is well backed by influ- ential British nnanciers, who have great faith in his judgment and ex- perience. London, Nov. Strathcona when interviewed with regard to the i rumor that Harrods Limited had of-; fered the Hudson Bay Co., for its stores in Canada, as governor of Hudson's i Bay O., nor privately do I know that I 'Harrods have made anq such offer." Replying to further questions he said: Mr. Burridge. was in Can- ada this autumn, T met him. there, but I am not aware that Hatreds are thinking anything of the kind." The Public School Board held special meeting last night and met a deputation of Some members of .the Presbvterian Church who spoke to the Board with reference to purchas- ing the Bailey St. school in North Ward for- a -church to be used by the Presbyterian congregation being or- ganized in that pare or the city. The matter was placed before -the Board by Eey. A. M. Gordon, min- ister of Knox Church, and he was supported by Rev. W. W. Briden, the minister of the new congregation, E. U. Rylands, J. B. Davies andrH. Macbeth. The Board after a. lengthy -discus- sion of .the subject decided that it was not in the best 'interests of the chools to sell the property at -'the present time. Although the Bailey St. school will be vacated on. the com- pletion of the addition to'thev West-- minster school, the Board figured it -nit that it would not be many months beam-- it would be required again'as] the probability is that the. Westmin- ster School will be filled -by next sum- mer at the latest. The Board offered Cairo, 111., Nov. for the clemobolization of the fourth regiment of the Illinois National guard, which have occupied Cairo since early yes-j terday were expected by the com- manders of the organization this morn ing. The absence last night of trou- j ble and the safe arrival at Kankakee of Arthur Alexander who was escort- ed from here late yesterday by two companies of the military led- both the local and state authorities to be- Uieve that there .would be no chance of further disturbance in the city. Alexander, who is suspected of the murder of Annie Pelley, is the only person in whom the members of the BOURASSA'S CANDIDATE LOST BYE-ELECTION Montreal, Quo., Nov Aid.

Tbe officials of the C. P. R. were present put.' in a basis upon iwhich their rates were charged. The Galbraith Coal Co. submitted a sche- dule of comparisons of. old and new- rates showing how the present rates discriminated in favor of the Leth- bridge mines and against the mines at Lundbreck, Hellenic, and" other points in the Crow's'Nest Pass. The decision was reserved. "The- rates in question affect tbe coal bus- iness of both producer and consumer and the case is of interest to Boards of Trade of several towns. The Galbraith Coal Co. complain that in the new compared with the old one, there is a dtscrim- balance and was caught again.
