Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 18, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta WILSON NOW SINKING OF THE LUSITAIA; U.S. IN DISAGREEABLE LIGHT C.P1 WE Sleeper Attached to Spokane Flyer, Giving Night Service Between Here and Calgary TWO TRAINS WEEK FOR FOREMOST LINE j London, Oct. IS.-Under the heading I lie Evening Standard commenting on tlio United States pro- test against British cruisers hovering off United States ports and treatment of the German submarine U-B3, says that not a protest was made by the United Statos against the activity ot the submersible. Our only indication oC Waslimk- ton's the newspaper says. "Is that she reimidated the alllch view that the submarine is not en- titled to the privileges ot an ordin- ary warship. It will be interesting to see whether President Wilson finds the German submarine activity in the Atlantic waters as annoying as tho British hovering." Much-Desired Daylight Ser- vice on the Crow Line Is Refused I Earl Grey, former governor general of Canada, as supplementing his question with the remark that "Any such action on the part of the United States war vessels would Involve a new and startling departure from the old tra- ditions of naval service. U S. In Disagreeable Light London. Oct. IS.-The statement of Viscount Un-y. foreign secretary to tho House of Lords Tuesday regard- ing the operations of belligerent war- ships off the coast of the United States caused a considerable st r. says the London correspondent of the Liv- erpool Post. "II lias thrown a most disagreeable light upon the atlitude of tho United! Slates government in the early stages of the war." The correspondent commented: "Washington is shown in a querulous captious mood, making demands which it is admitted were not legally tenable. The incident is now ancient history and might well be forgotten, but in view of the 'extraordinary proceed- ings in connection with the U-53 the members are speaking very bitterly of the behaviour of the United States government. Stories mentioned by Returns of Census in West Dis- appointing Calgary Has Only Returns Not Yet Complete "I'm going to p.ut the'police on_ it now. I'm not satisfied." That's the way Mayor Hardle received the information that Lethbridge's population is acording to the Dominion govern- ment census taken last June According to the last published police census the city's population was This was taken early in 1914 Considering the fact that over 1500 Lethbridge men have ioined the colors, the new census figures may not be. so far wrong, but the Mayor says they will have to "show him."
