SEPTEMBER 18, 1918 PLEiYOFMFIC Cardston Expti Train Loaded With Tri-Wedtly Senice Great iMwcomfort There �was no evidence of Jack of traffic on the Cardston branch traJn which went out of here yesterday morning.

The CRYSTAL DAIRY Ltd. - PHONE 1576 1 THESHEEP Apparently Accounts Satisfactorily for Presence of Shsep on His Farm ^ The famous Stewart sheep stealing case which has attracted so much In-teresit in this district, came up before Mr, JusUce "Walsh In tfie supremo court this morning. The case for the crown was concluded about noon, after which Stewart was put on the s^and in his own defence, and gave his own story of the whole affair. The flra't witness called upon was the owner of the sheep, Geo. Kerr, Mr. Kerr told lils story of how he,missed the sheep and later found mtthy of'the animals on the prerQlses occupied by Stewart. Ha laid information to this effect witii the provincial pallce, and Detective Hesketh went out to investigate with Mr. Kerr, Stewart was absent from his farm and after some search he was located at the Leth-bridge jail canvassing for Y.M.C.A. funds. Upon being questioned by Detective Hesketh he made a writtto statement of all he knew about the affair, which apparently was very little. The statement was produced and read in court and accounted for the presence of the sheep on Stewart's farm. The next witness. Gold!c Dawson, who is serving a three years' sentence for complicity in the aftair, gAve forth very crushing evidence against the accused, He stated that he and Ha-&el. his confederate, took the sheep to Stewart, admitted that they were stolen and offered him them at a very low figure which was agreed to. He intimated that Stewart was aware of the whole business. He also added that when Stewart was trying to make a deal with Greien. he (Stewart) suggested to Dawson that he should state that he had bought the sheep off "Jack Reynolds" (a purely fictitious person, of Spring Coulee. This in order to allay any suspicion. Geo. Green, manager of the Ellison Milling Co. here, gave testimony to the effect that he had been approached by Stewart with, the view of purchasing a bunch of sheep. At first he seemed to think favorably ot the matter, but on looking into it and acting on the'advice of his solicitor he declined to touch the proposition. Detective Hesketh told ot his visit to Stewart's farm and of locating Stewart at the Lethbridge jail. He said that he had no; trouble in getting the signed statement from Stewart. The crown closed its, case at this point, Ste�f;�irt'8 Story Stewart then told his story of the affair. He said he met Hagel in front of the Y.M.C.A. one day and the latter asked him if be was in the market for any sheep. Stewart said yes, but nothing more was' done. Some days later Hagel saw him again and asked him to go out and look at the bunch. A date was fixed when Stewart should Ibok the bunch over, hut Hagel'did not appear and could not be located. Several days later Stewart met Hagel in town and reminded him that he had not kept the appointment, Hajfel said he could not make it, but the herder who owned these sheep was bringing them into town and would paas Stewart's place. It was agreed that the sheep should be kept in Stewart's corral whilst he looked them over. ' Stewart was in town for the next two or three days. On his return to his farm he found the sheep in his corral. He waited for several days before anybody came to see him about them, when one morning Hagel and Goldie Dawson came up, Dawson being introduced as the owner of the sheep. They wanted Stewart to handle the sheep immediately but he did not have enough money to do so. He bought an option for $100 and later went to see Mr. Green and suggested that he purchase the sheep, the^result being,shown in the evidence given by Mr. Green himself. On- being questioned Stewart vigorously denied any guilty knowledge of the affair and flatly contradicted the evidence ot Dawson in all respects. / Some time after ^Mr. Green's refusal to purchase. R. H, Waddell returned from Calgary with a number ot horses he had purchased there and he was induced to add them to the money Stewart had raised (about fl200) and the sheep were purchased on equal shares, a bill of sale signed by Dav/son and Hagel being given. This was produced in court and was made out for 125 sheep, when there wore actually 215 stolen. The difference In numbers was explained by Dawson to make the price seem more nearly suitable. Champion Man Discharged At Tuesday afternoon's sitting of the supreme court Wm. Blair, of Champion, was adjudged not guilty of cattle stealing, by Mr. Justice Walsh, The evidence was such that there was no proof that Blair had any dishonest intentions w-ith the cattle which he located as strays, A. B. Hogg appeared for the accused.

People' Pleads for the Belgian Children W. Herbert Hoover, Food-Controller of the United States, has earned the title bestowed upon him by King Albert and the Belgian Government- ' 'Citizen of Honour and Friend of the Belgian People." , The world knows what was accomplished under Hoover's administration before America's.entrance into the War. In July of this year, he was in London in connection with his responsibilities as Food Controller, and took the opportunity toiearn how things stood in Belgium. So terribly serious are conditions - there among the children ^ Mr. Hoover wrote an ftrgent^plea, partsof w^ich are quoted: that "On May 14th, 1917, I aavbed you of the financial arrsngement with tha United StatM Govenimant whereby fundi were provided for tha general rationing pi the civilian population ol Belcium ..... 1 sUted my hope that the various committees oi the Commiition for KelleJ m Belgium that had already accompliihed so much urould hold together despite the new linanaal arrangement in order to support certain needed special charities �ngement in order to support certain neeaed special cnaniie*...... "It can be readily understood that in providing 'a general ration for the whole nation the rigorous system necessary to handle such a great projeA can mslie little provision for special cesei and for special needs. Theie caiei, running into hundreds pf thousands, of sick and defedlive children.......cannot be taken car* of by the general funds. There is an increasing need for funds in these cases. The gifts are running low, and out laft reports'show that the soup lines of Belgium have increased from one-and?a-h^lf to'tw��ad�-ha)l million parsons. .......... "1 vrish paiticularly to remove any doubt as to the acceptability of contributions to.the Commiuion for Relief in Belgium for the special purpbiet above indicated. ...... This transmission of money is absolutely guaranteed, by virtue of an agreement between the belligerent Goveripments, the C. R. B. and the Neutral (Spanish and Dutch) protecting MiniAert in Bnutelsl^ Read between the lines of Mr. Hbovei^s letter to his aisociates, and you will realize the ever fresh tragedy oif Beloium. You will see little babies, pinched with hunger, waiting in line tor the bowl of soup i and the two pieces of bread that form their daily ration. Think of it! Is it any wonder Consumption and kindred ills sweep through the stricken country, harvesting the starved orphans left behind by soldiers who died holding back the Hun in the first days of the War.' Put your sympathy info practical form. Don't shudder-and then do nothing! While you wait, children are dying. Be generous! Be quick!
