Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 20, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta lEe Lethbridge Daily Herald VOL. LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 1909. NO. PREDICTS THE DEFEAT OF LIBERALS Suffragette Is Certain British Party Will Be Ousted New York, Nov. Times to- day says: "While the wintry blasts were at their keenest yesterday after- noon, Miss. Mary Keegan, an English suffragette who has served time in J Halloway Jail with Mrs. Pankhurst, stood in a sheltered corner of Madi- Square and talked suflragism to a crowd of men sufficiently interested in the cause to brave the cold." "Miss Keegan fold the men she-was an English Suffragette, more or less a typical one. She had been in pri- son; that she did not think any one need be afraid of her suffragette speech. Speaking of the present government in England she said: "The Liberals} are the most un-liberal on the face of j the globe. They are getting them-' selves very much disliked. They'will not remain in power and the Conser- vative government has learned some- thing from the present administra- tion. "There is not a worse suffragette in England than I, she said in -telling of the English suffragettes. you know how we came to be called suf- fragettes. The name was given us by an English paper as a term of de- rision but now' it is a name to be proud of and we don't like to be call- ed suffragists, and you know what they is the difference between the suffragist and the suffragettes. The suffragist wants the franchise and the j suffragette is going -to get it. j "We are only taking a chapter out j of the -men's book in what we are do- ing in England. If we had taken the whole book blood would have been j shed. The government is responsible! for everything that has happened. They would not let us do anything; and sent us to prison."

Winnipeg, Man., Nov. Lepine, Kiel's lieutenant, has just died at St. Vital; at the age of 75 years. It is interesting to recall Lepine's connection, with Western Canada, es- pecially as the day on which he died was the 24th anniversary of the ex- ecution of the great halfbreed lea-der of the Metis, Louis Riel. Lepine was adjutant general in the government of Pacl in 18G9-70. He was born in 1834, his father being a Canadian and his mother a Metis of the Red! River settlement. He received his instruction'.from the Christian broth- ers and himself wore the religious garb for several months. An adju- tant general.he presided at the court martial which condemned Thomas Scott to death. At the request of Mgr. Tache, Lepine consented in 1872 to leave "for the United States. In, company with Riel he left by night in a closed carriage, protected by 'a couple of policemen and was conduct- ed across the frontier, going to St. Paul, -where he stopped for a .year. On his return to Manitoba on Sept. he was arrested charge; of participating in the murder of Scott. He was brought to Winnipeg and lodged in the- fort. After a long trial, in which he was defended by Messrs. Dubuc, Girard and Royal, as well as by- Sir J. A. Chapleau, he" was condemned to death but" recom- mended to the mercy of the court. His execution was fixed for Nov. 4, 1574, but on the request of Mgr. Tache" the sentence was committed to two. years imprisonment with perpetual deprivation of his civil rights. After having served the sentence he went north eventually settling in the par- ish of Fprget, Sask., where he re- mained until quite recently, when he camu to his son's house at St. Vital to die. SIR THOMAS AND McBRlDE FRIENDLY Montreal. Nov. to- dny Sir Thomas Sha-ughnessy remark- ed that the newspaper reports QI an intf-Tview between Premier McBride and I'.irnself ;o-n the occasion of his last visit to British Columbia axe untrue. Their conversation when. Sir Thomas called to pay his respects was quite friendly and agreeable. Sir Thomas stated that whatever opinion he may entertain about Mr. McBride's railway policy the Can- adian Pacific Ry.

Cherry, Nov. two o'clock this afternoon it was reported that forty men were alive in the mine. The men were reached after a wall of de- bris had been broken down. At first the men were supposed to be dead but one of them lifted his hand and the rest were found to be breathing. The live men were immediately rushed to the shaft and stimulants administered." One of the men after being brought to the sunlight after seven days' entombment was only able to mutter incoherently. His face was black from the smoke and slightly scorched. It appeard that the men, after discovering their walled themselves in. Seth Crescini, was one of the two men brought up in the cage.
