Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 4, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4, 1918 THE LETIIBRIDGE DAILY HERALD Embargo Local Freight Sheds Result of Handlers' Strike An embargo on all freight through the local sheds, both ingoing and outgoing, was declared by local officials of the C.P.R. this morning. That IB the direct result of Lhe strike of freight hnndlors, baggage checkers und yard office men declared at ten o'clock Thursday morning. The strike has reached a stage now �where tho public is closely interested, lor the movement of all L.C.L. freight Is at a standstill practically throughout the west, and within a week, unless a settlement is reached, a serious condition will result. No negotiations between tho company officials and the strikers at local points will take place, thrf Herald understands. It Is now a matter to be dealt with by the Winnipeg officials of the company and the union's delegates there. If a settlement cannot be effected in Winnipeg an appeal will have to be made to a government commission. It is hardly likely that the good offices of the Railway War Board will be availed of, owing to the fact that the settlement of the freight handlers' demands, which was handed down by the war labor board the other day, does not seem to have met with the approval of the striking employees. A Quick turn was given the strike tin's morning by an appeal from Calvary for a sympathetic strike vote by the Lethbrldge Trades and Labor Council. The Herald understands that nil trades councils in the west are ,1)cing asked to take such a vote on be-Ihalf of the striking railwaymen and particularly on behalf of those in Calgary whose positions have been filled. 'The strikers are insistent that the men dismissed at Calgary will he reinstated. So far the local trades council has taken no action, but It Is possible a meeting of the executive will be held tonight to consider the best course to pursue. There is a desire in some quarters locally to wait until It is learned what support the railway bro-thorhoods, who are closely in touch with the freight handlers, will give the strikers before unions outside the railways tako a hand in the matter. In the moan time a serious tie-up is resulting here from the strike, though so far It has affected only freight In less than car lots. Through freight is being moved.. Passenger trains are not being delayed for want of baggage checkers. Spur track freight Is being handled also. The general office staff is being disposed to keep the urgent freight moving. At Macleod four men went out. At Medicine Hat only the freight handlers and yard office men quit. The freight offico clerks remained on the job. Grant Hall's Statement Winnipeg, Oct. 3.-Grant Hall stated this morning that there is "really no point of dispute between the freight shed employees at Winnipeg and the management." Mr. Hall stated that the point of whether, the granting of the "McAdoo award" to the employees should be retro-active to May 1. on which the strike Is ostensibly based, has been referred to the board of adjustment In Montreal, the men agreeing to leave the point to that board on condition that all freight shed employees at DON'T ENDURE RHEUMATIC PAIN!

"Sloan's :tl:rii merit Calgary, now on strike, should be reinstated. Mr. Hall points out that the freight shod employees at Calgary did not carry out their undertaking with the fair wage officer at Calgary to return to work on Sept. 24. The Canadian Pacific had in the meantime obtained assistance in their freight sheds at; Calgary in order to give the public a proper service and the employees taken on must be protected.' Mr. Kail recommended to the men's committee that the strikers In Calgary should make application at once to the fail-wage officer for any positions which may be vacant in the freight sheds there. 'Mr. Hall stated that the Calgary men struck to enforce their demand that a foreman, removed for failure to give satisfaction In that capacity, should ba reinstated, or in the alternative the foremans position should be given to a man nominated by the freight handlers themselves. Mr. Hall quotes the report on the Calgary strike sent in by Assistant General Manager D. C. Coleman, who emphasizes that the strike in the freight sheds there hinges on the question of the choice of officials. �*:** : > > > : > * * : WESTMINSTER SCHOOL * > v � : * � # : : * > Socks knitted in Westminster School during September, 04 pairs as follows: Ethel Allen 14, Olive Anderson 1, Madge Annetts 2, May Annetts 2, Bessie Balrd 1, Kathle Balrd 2, Kdith Barclay 1, James Bowker 3, Joe How-ker 2, James Carter ), Margaret Chap-low 1, Muriel Clarke 2, Chrissie Horn 2, Archie Jones 1, Hazel Jones 1, Ina Jones I, Lizzie Jarvie 1, Ethel Larson 3, Sheila McCallum 1, Annie Mc-Nab 1, .Grace McNulty 1.

KILL MANY BOLSHEVIKI - A wholesale break for liberty was made at the Provincial Jail yesterday afternoon when four, convicts succeeded in making their getaway. In the case of three of them, however, their liberty was of ?. short duration for they were captured within a few hours of the alarm. The fourth, however, succeeded in getting clear away. His name is Charles Matthews and he is notorious for horse thieving and a general bad man.. Matthews is serving time for horse thieving and jail breaking, the latter occurring last fall here when he got away to the States but was picked up there by Pat Egan. He was to be tried this week at Macleod on another theft charge and it was evidently to escape this that he made this last break. So far no clue has been received as to his whereabouts. London, Oct. 2.-Very heavy casualties were inflicted upon the Bolsheviki troops by the entente forces when they captured Ukhtinskaya, in northern European Russia on Sept 20, according to an official statement issued by the war office. The town, which had been intended as a base for Bolsheviki operations in Karelia had been fortified under German supei-visipn. 29 FLOWING ILLS IN ARTESIAN BASIN Remarkable Work Accomplished As Result of Investigation Southeast of City.

HOW TO RECOGNIZE SPANISH INFLUENZA Before the so-called "Spanish influenza" strikes us und authorities agree that we shall not escape it- a few facts ought, to be acceptable. According- ro a leading editorial in the Journal of the American Medical Association (Chicago. August 24). the name was bestowed in the belief thai the disease starlet! in Spain, but there is apparently no authority for Hits. No part ^of Europe, civilized or barbarian, ha.s been exempt. Fortunately the outbreak in England and among the Allied troops on the Continent is now on the wane. Thus far most of the articles and notes regarding the disease have been ephemeral; the more elaborate and finished studies will doubtless come later. Says The Journal: "The symptoms are described practically always in about the same terms sudden onset with chills, severe heRdache. pains in the back ami elsewhere. general malaise, flushed face, some soreness of the throat, and fever of from 101 deg. to 104 deg. F., with a rather slow pulse. Usually crisis has occurred after two or three days, with rapid and complete recovery. In many cases there has been a harsh cough with a scanty-sputum; occasionally more severe bronchitis and even bronchopneumonia have developed, but among the young and healthy there seems to have been no serious consequences, and no definite statements are made as to the death-rate, which in any event thus far has been very low. Gastro-intestlnal disturbances have not been observed. "The observers on whose autuorlty these statements are ventured do not agree as to the bacteriology of the disease. Blood cultures have not yielded any definite results, and so far no immunilogic tests seem to have been made. In editorial comment, The British Medical Journal states that the influeuza has been fouud in many different places,, especially in cases with bronchitis and PAGE SEVEN a :---- ' 1.....1 > : .

This opinion is by no means unanimous, however, and the bacteriologic and other evidence at hand certainly does not warrant its acceptance. Much further work is required before we can feel sure that we understand the true nature and cause of this and similar pandemics. "The treatment remains symptomatic-rest in bed, free movements of the bowels, and light diet are the most important measures. "No doubt the spread of the infection, whatever it is, would be limited considerably if the dangers of droplet infection were recognized more widely and guarded against."
