"What Is probably the first conviction to be obtained under the , new Alberta liquor law. In a case where the actual liquor was. not In evidence, was secured by. the city police yesterday afternoon when- Mrs. Ferguson, proprietor of the Windsor hotel, was fined $150 and costs, amounting to $177 in all. Mrs. Ferguson was charged with selling liquor on her hotel premises. The detectives discovered a man drinking on the premises, but just as he went to make the. seizure, Mrs. Ferguson threw th�! whiskey out, and the charge had to be laid without the usual evideDC� of the liquor. Mrs. Ferguson pleaded not guilty, but Magistrate Irwin after hearing the evidence of the iflan who drank the stuff and other witnesses, inflicted the line. The woman afterwards admitted that the stuff jvas real whiskey, but during the trial tried to run the bluff that the stuff was orange cider, a statement which brought a laugh in the court room.

[Y OF CPE OIL FALLS OFF  Washington, Sept. 20. - Serious shortage in tlie supply of crude oli Is noted in a report by the bureau of mines, compiled In response to a senate resolution and made public tonight. Insufficient crude oil to supply refineries is being produced, the report shows, while gasoline stocks have been reduced to a two or three weeks' supply, necessitating continued conservation by the public. The report will be transfhitted to the senate tomorrow. "The need for conservation is apparent," the report declares, "and the American people had voluntarily foregone the pleasure of needless automobile touring during these times. ,Suoh v61untary conservation now may prevent the necessity of more serious action later."

In July there was a decrease of 1,630,000 bairels in stock, while last month this decrease was estimated at 1,500,000 barrels. v, MACLEOD CITIZENS IN HUGE DEMONSTRATION AGAINST MENNONITES (Special to tlie Herald) Macleod, Sept. 21.-A public dem: onstratiou against the Mlsnnonites coming to the west from, the Uhlted States was held in the' town hall, .Macleod, on Friday evening.
