Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 10, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE TEN THE LETqBRIDGE DAILY HERALD THURSDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1918 Matthews, Horse Thief, Retaken; Found By Posse Under Bed At His Ranch, Armed to the Teeth Oiio of the most sensational captures ever effected in southern Alberta was carried out yesterday on the franch of Chas. Matthews, the escaped convict, when that tough specimen *ras run to earth by Const. Allen and tlis posse in a most dramatic manner. Matthews escaped from the provincial jail here last week, for the sec-trad time. A few days previous Inspector Mundy of the provincial police here had been out interrogating liini on some other matters, and the man complained to him that people were stealing hay from his place at Beaver Mines, and that one of the neighbors was threatening to shoot his wife. It was only a few days after that that Matthews made his escape. The provincial police si once took on the task of running him down. A Bad Actor Matthews is known as a bad actor �nd extra efforts were made to capture him. The residents of his home district also were anxious that he should be captured as soon as possible and formed a posse for the assistance of the police. The search was at 'irsf in charge of Constables Allen and Smith, who scoured the south country for the convict Const. Rogan of Pincher Creek, also kept a lnokour. Rogan phoned to Inspector Mundy on Oct Sth that aiatthews had been seen in the vicinity of his old home, and that the woman who was supposed to be his wife �was collecting ammunition for fight-� ing off the police.. Const. Rogan in the meantime was organizing and di-; reeling the search for the convict.

Finally the posse yesterday afternoon, after the woman and the father and brother of Matthews had beeu arrested, went to the home for a search. The day previous on the approach o� the posse the woman had come out and fired two shots in the air as a warning. Armed to the Teeth Yesterday the posse under Const. Allen went to the house to search the place. They were looking about for the rifle which the woman had used, when one of the civilians with the party, D. A. Mitchell, happened to look under the bed and saw the muzzle of a rifle. He investigated a little further and saw that the rifle was in the hands of Matthews, who "was hidden among the rubbish under the bed. Const. Allen, who was standing near, drew his automatic, and held the man up. taking him prisoner. The rifle was found to be loaded, and Matthews also had an automatic. How Allen ever escaped getting shot is a mystery. The capture has caused great relief in the district and much credit is coming to Const. Rogan for the direction of the search. Const. Allen who nerv-ily held up the convict, formerly was stationed at Retlaw. The woman was given three months on a vagrancy charge, and tEe father and brother of Matthews are being held.

A most unwelcome visitor appeared in the city last night when some half dozen cases of Spanish influenza were found, some in an advanced stage. It would appear that this intrusion is being made light of by the doctors of the city as at noon today no cases had been reported to the City Health Officer. Jn most cities the utmost precautions are being taken, in, all cases complete quarantine is ordered and in some cases the patients are removed to the isolation hospitals. Here, however, nothing had 'been done up to a late hour today. When spoken to by a Herald representative Health Officer DeVeher stated that, he had no knowledge of the presence of the epidemic in the city, yet there happens to be a case next door to the Doctor's residence. In Winnipeg Winnipeg. Oct. 10.-Dr. A. J. Douglas, health officer, announced today that a proclamation will be issued When 20 more truckers are secured at the freight sheds the staff will be complete, according to information furnished the Herald this morning at the general offices of the C.P.R. here. At present a staff of 24 is at work in the sheds and freight offices. Way freight is being fairly well handled, but over 40 cars of transfer freight have not been touched. The baggage room staff is complete and the yard office staff practically so. Local interest in the strike centers on the action to be taken at the mass meeting of local labor men tomorrow evening. The executive of the freight handlers' union has handed the Herald the following statement: The freight handlers and clerks very much regret to hear that the Western Transfer, Co. have found it necessary to permit their teamsters to check, stack and truck freight at the local freight sheds.during the trouble. We hardly credit this unless they wish to give the teamsters a little enjoyment by being among the ladies. At Calgary. Calgary, Oct. 10.-According to a statement of the Calgary Trades and Labor Council out of 21 unions of the city who have taken a vote on a strike in sympathy with the Canadian Pacific railway freight handlers, who walked out over a fortnight ago, 19 have voted in favor of a general strike being called. Twelve other unions are still to be heard from. It is probable that the strike may take effect from Monday next. A meeting of the strike committee is being held this afternoon when this within a few days closing schools, P�inl. fae decided I Sure! High Heels t: Cause Corns But Who Cares Now �*.

The decision of the health authorities has not been arrived at because of alarming conditions present, but it is considered that prompt action will prevent conditions such as have arrived in the east. If the epidemic spreads similar action will be taken throughout the province. new cases were report ed today. Reports have been circulated that the Next-of-Kln was responsible for women taking the strikers' placest in the freight sheds here. The local Nextof-Kin are not responsible in any way for any women taking the place of a striker, and in order to ascertain the attitude of the Calgary association the following wire was sent to the branch there: A rumor in Leth*ridge that soldiers' dependents who are working in the freight sheds as strike-breakers are here with the Calgary branch N.

DEBATE ON EVANGELISM -Hamilton, Ont., Oct. 9.-The question of the creation of a separate department of evangelism for the Methodist church v/as hotly debated this morning in the general conference committee on social service and evangelism but no decision was arrived at, the speakers being pretty evenly divided on the subject. Two sub-committees had been appointed to deal with the question, one of which reported in favor of and the other against the formation of the new department. The feeling of some is that the cause j of evangelism has suffered through ' the attention of the present department being devoted almost exclusively to social service. Others hold that evangelism is best forwarded through social service.
