NOVEMBER 20, 8 WROTE FAREWELL MESSAGE Wl TOOTHPICK DIPPED III HIS BL60D mayor favors a Veach affirms that he rushed In and freed tho stock, alter this he was too much afraid of Chutofskl to withdraw. It .seems that Veach was rather nearer succeeding in his attempt than first reports indicated. "May these blood-stained messages he given as much publicity in the I-iethbrldge Herald, as was the storj of my crime," Writing this farewell message to the world with a toothpick dipped in his own blood, squeezed from slash he mado In his ami. Chas. Veach. reported yostorday to have attempted �ni-cido at the provincial jnll here. prepared to take leave of life, ratti'-r than endure imprisonment. Veach's blood-stained iues.-nge. to llis wife and the world was turned over to the proviticl.il police and caused a. sensation in police circles today. Veach was found unconscious. haiiKir.K 1o the door of his cell with a short hi; of chain about his neck, and a slash in Ills arm. Strenuous efforts wt>re re- quired to revive liini. lie will be ehnrped with attempted suicide as soon as he is uL'le !~ attend court. Veach delihorately cut a veiu in his arm and with a tooth pick penned his farewell message, covering three good 1'ized shoots of paper. He poes on to explain the whole affair, stating that rather than undergo the disgrace of imprisonment he will do nwiiy - ith himself. His story of the black mailing episode it Stnvo'y last month tor which lie is held is that he was approach*'.1 by a man named Chutofski who proposed the whole plan, offering Veach S."iiH� to write the letters, and threatening him. with death if he made public the proposition.

Davidsoit of the public school board, who will he a candidate for re-election at the coming school board election. Is not in accord with Trustee Coo. R MacKay's suggestion that the member* of the board should bo paid Sin a meeting. "I can see what lie is driving at. and think his purpose is goo.i. but that $10 a meeting would bring out belter men for the positions I do not believe. As a matter of fact it might result in bringing out a swarm of candidates who are not of the right stamp to control the affairs of such a large corporation.' Mayor llardle thinks the school board would do well to follow the example of Gait Hospital board. When Canon Murrell-Wright was named as chairman the position was honorary. Hut it needed someone to give the hospital more attention in the way of administrative details, purchasing, etc. and as Canon Mur/ell-V.'righ' could spare the lime he was granted a salary of leii a month for the work, and acts as u sort of hospital commissioner. Mayor Hardie declares that he has saved that sum many times over since lie took hold of the position while the affairs of the hospital are always up to date rather than dragging along, waiting for the monthly meeting of members who are busy with their our, affairs. A school commissioner Is .Mayor Hurdle's Idea. The ido-ii of a soldiers' iiiemovlal for I.ethbridKe. which has been broached editorially by The Herald, is catching on in good style in the city, and is now the subject of many a discus- PUT IRRIGATION SYSTEM IN GOOD SHAPE FOR 1919 Supt.
