N.W.JJ.P. ot Mrs. Hildegard von Wil-uckl on a charge of having banaeil Oerman papers in her possession, the Mounted Police, who are charged with the duty otloolclng after alien ononi-ies in the west, came upon a ratlier remarkable story of German Intriguo whlth. savors atvbngly o^ a depp laid spy plbj^l The voii Wiluckl's were discovered �by Detective I^bh of "K" division of-the mounted police as a rosuH ot a Husplcion which had lurked for sonio time In the mind of W. J.' Hall, J.P., a,t' Alderson, who stated that he had teen told, that there was a farm near that place, owned by a Qerman, where a quantity of papers and railway niaps of a suspicious nature were hidden., Detective Lobb went to Alderson and on to the von Wilucki homestead, which is called the Lindau farm, and Which has been rented to a Ruasian named Chas. Destules; Mrs. von Wilucki is, living at 950 Yulil St., Medicine Hal, while her husband ts some- - Where in thig liacombe district. On searching the premises, lie found a large amount of correispond-eiiceand papers, printed and written ill German, which he seized and took with hiai to Medicine Hat. .'.\:\.

Willie I am American born. I yet feel that I ani^hrfte-foiirths German." Relsberg is an organist' in a New York churchy i- Btameci' it'on England, I In another letter he wrote;- "Recently I have-received letters from two cousins of mine on my mother's side, both of whom have been in Bel- ?ium or nortliern France, hoth wound-id, sent home but " ure r^cwering. They write aa if .in very full confi-'denco that Germany will win, and I do hope and pray that this may be the case, I too am beginning to hate the English who are the real^culprits, the real troublemakers, in this war. But for them Trance and Russia would long ago have been thoroughly whippet!. * * * With best wishes for your happiness and the hope to smash lilng-latid before lone,'"^ j In anotherletter he said: "You must not believe what you read in the Canadian, papers for they merely .echo the English papers, mostly lies. We here gbt tli-c facts long before the English people themselves do." Sent Re�ervittCv Back to Fight. . There was also evidence in tlie mass pt correspondenco that the Wi-luckl'a had aided in sending German reservists out of Alberta back to Germany through the United States iu the early days of the war. One note in^er diarj' says: "Herman drove to town and sent away the trunk belonging to Rudatz." On Aug. 9,~l914, she wrote: "Rudatz is .In-the war." I On^^-Jan. 22, 1916, _She .made the follow tog entry, wiilch! Is rathap remarkable iu the light of  recent, � events: "Another .buncJi of, new^Spapers sect from New York from Germany. - They say that now, in'Jatiu�ry,"tii^ liaiser is to abdicate, bat thcAe Kn^Ilah,. what do they think they-ai'e?' Hope they will perish." Elevator Biirned Down. On January 30th of the; same month she %vrote: "Something luckj- happen: ed today. The elevator in iown burned down w(^th 120,000 losa.

Tlio two  Ijaronr,, Rechenberg, also left Canada just a couple of days before the war broke out, and wont to New York via .Seattlu for some unknown reason, though it is suspected that they made tlie roundabout trip to get in touch with German spies scattered througlioht Uie States. Very Poor Now. Owing to the fact that the war is over and tlie Germans have Ijeen unmercifully drubbed, it \Js hardly likely that tlie authorities will arrest the von Witocki pair as s?pie.s. The belief is that theNwoman is a spy, though not in the pay of tho Oerman government. They are now very poor owing to the fact that all comraunicatiop with Germany was out off after tho U.S. went, into the war. and when Mrs. Wilucki was convicted and fined ?aO the other day she 'fainted in. the court room. One thing tlie police are very anxious to learn i,"? how Ihe'many letters i ' to the Wllucki's over got through the i j tlic Canadian mails. Wilucki came to ' ! Canada in J909 and proved up'his iiomeatead in'1912, then becoming a British subject, lii that year he returned to Germany- and married Baroness of Reuss.

He was determined to remain no longer a member of a cabinet whicli was fast driftinc into that policy." j_ sociAlims OFiNCRIlS BUILO IE BRIDGE OVER R!VE A temporary bridge spanning the river, is being built liy the Foderal Coals, Ltd., at the point where tho ferry at present cro.?se8.
