Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 29, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta TEe Lethbridge Daily Herald 'VOL. II. LETHBRIDGE, ALBCPTA. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 29, I90t. NO. 271. .OFFICERS OF i THE NAVY REVOLT Very Serious Situ- ation Develops In Greece Athens, Greece, Oct. actual revolt in the navy has taken place d the situation is; acute. The band of naval officers which on Wed- nesday, -quitted the .captain and with- drew to Salamis, an island ten miles to the -west, today seized the arsenal there and are now entrenched. They met "no opposition. "The rebels are led by an officer., Tibaldos., and are now reported to number three .hundred men. The government has proclaimed Tibaldos a traitor ana ordered his arrest by the militia. The Greek fleet is anchored at Kar- ataini, on the further side of the is- land of Sjalamis" and has not yet had time to declare which side it take. Many of the junior naval officers in Athens disavow the revolt. Great ex- citement prevails in this city, and the ministry of marine is guarded by troops. Lieut. Tibaldos, ...who heads tlie re- folt, is 'commander of a flotilla of torpedo boats and submarines. )t appears that he demands that he be appointed Minister of Marine. He threatens if the appointment is not made, that he will overthrow the government and establish a dictator- ship. This afternoon, a regiment of infantry and a battery of field gr.i s were sent to Karamanga, on y coast, -a few miles from Athens and opposite LeroSj the, point on the .Is- land of Famis, where Tibaldo's are entrenched. It is now said Ti- baldos has secured the support rf the entire torpedo1 flotilla of eight ships and threatens employ these in sinking the reet of the fleet. As ?'i- baldos arsenal and ammun- ition depots, tJhe vessels in the pos- session of the government are vit-h- out ammunition, but have not fe molested. The cause of the naval revolt ir. Greece is to be found probably in the recent failure, of the Greek cause in Crete, when the powers upon lur- tcy's protest, removed .the Helenic flag which had been hoisted at OaT.- This failure' to secure Crete popularly blamed to governmental in- efficiency, and as a result several weeke battalions of troops at Athens mutinied. Retiring to th> suburbs i ijthev'-. demanded the surrender of the High Places held in the army by -Crown Prince tine. commander in chief of the Greek army; Prince Andrew, a captain of cavalry Christopher, a sub-lieutenant in :the infantry.

This order, issued from the office of the Superintendent of Postal Tel- egraph Company, here, has become a matter of grave concern to the wo- men clerks and operators in the em- ploy of the company in this city. They declare that not only will the order compel them to appear out of date, bdt that the modern feminine hass cannot be worn without the uni- versal "rat."

This was so because the winners of the fight did not bring bitterness and feeling of re- venge to the subsequent councils, but a 'determination to rob the Dutch of every grievance they might have.

They had simply endeavored to work out their plans and to establish an empire for Holland in South Africa, which they had a perfect right to do. Overtures in the direction of peace -had frequently been made, and the Dutch were not always to blame for their failure.

In it, Dr. Cook declared that he ascended Mount McKinley, that Barrill was with him at and that the records of his 'ascent were left on the summit of- the peak. The discussion tben waxed warmer, Barrill's attorney and friends de- nouncing Cook's statements, -while friends of the doctor contended for fair play.
