Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 23, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDQE VviEKLY HEflALO StVEM ELECTIONS, OCTOBER 26TH Ottawa, September tenth Parliament of Canada has been dissolved-and the electors will be asked to say by their votes on Monday, October o-: 'not the present government has deserved the reward .of another tenure r. This was the announcement handled out-After a m.ee tin? of the cabinet (this afternoon. Nominations will.be October 19th with polling a week later, The date is a little earlier than originally selected, as the government found that all arrangements for put- 'ting the machinery of election law into operation could b completed in time to put the date forward two OL- three vdaya. Moreover, it was considered that Monday would, all things -being considered, be a more convenient day ifor the general public than a mid-week day.- The writs for.the holding of the election will be sent out at once various constituencies. Hon. R.-W. Scott, Secretary-, of State, who has of an immense amount of detail work involved the of the election lists, appointment of returning officers, etc., will continue in office until the. work is .-finished. the incoming minister, Charles Murphy, will not be sworn in until next week. The re- turning officers in most of the constituencies have already been selected. With but few'exceptions, they will be -the sheriffs of theif respective districts, although in some cases it has been-found that other appointments were .-rendered necessary? The government is going to the country in confidence that the verdict-uj the electors'will'be a repetition of verdicts given in 1900 and 1904. Reports-received from every province indicate that the outlook for the. Liberal is most favorable and now ihat have had a chance to fed.the political pulse- of their respec- tive ape in a most optimistic mood, The general opinion as far as can be gathered here H that there is practically no doubt that the present will.be returned to power.

The cargo, included' salmon, two million feed" of red wood arid some gasoline engines. Ono of these engines was fitted in a shipsboat to take Captain Downie, the second officer and' two engineers to Fanning Island, lying 14 miles northwest to cable news of the disaster. Some of the salmon and general- merchandise was recovered and taken ashore with the ship's boats and a stock of water secured, the supply on Christmas Island being Downie had a difficult time reaching Fanning- Island. The engine fitted in the ships boat refus- ed to work and the boat was rowed back to the island where it was re- fitted and- after a long and arduous trip, reached Fanning Island this morning the crew being succored and treated kindly by the staff of the Fanning Island" station.

Possibly thc walls of the "police station have never rung with such iiot cross-firing as they did yesterday 'The case was that against A. J. Pyte. a- strike breaker, for carrying concealed firearm, and was heard by Magistrates Humphries and Wast. Chief Gillespie conducted thc prose- cution, and C, F, Harris appeared for the defendant. Constable Si Hiker was kept in the witness box for an hour and a half. He told of how from information re- from two men he went to Windsor Hotel to get Pyle. On his arrival he saw whom he thought was Pyle in the office. He asked him if liis name was Pyle and was answcr- in the The constable him to come, to the police sta- tion and accused said he would, but immediately turned and ran upstairs. He was asked to come back but con- tinued to runi. Thc constable follow- ed and saw Pyle rim down the hall. take a revolver from his pocket and throw it out thc door. He then .placed him under arrest, warned him that anything he might say would bo .osed as evidence and placed him der the charge of Mr. Bcasley whilo he went down to get thc revolver. Ho found it and said it his. Asked wrv he threw it away Pyle said he did not want to be ar- rested with a gun on him. The constable then brought' him to the police station, locked him up and no- tified the Chief. To Mr. Harris the Constable said that two men who said they had worked for the C.P.R. laid the infor- mation'and said that Pyle had thvea tened to pump somebody full of. lead if he were molested. The .constable did not know the men by name. Ask- ed if were any union men in the room the Constable said he did not know unless it was Mr. Penne- fathev. Then the fun commenced. Mr, Pen- nefather thought this an insult and objected strenuously, alleging that the constable knew ho v.'as r.ot a union man. Mr. Harris endeavored to find out if these strikers could be found by nny means so that they could be summoned. Witness did not know whore to find them or anything about them. The Constable said he was accompanied to the hotel by two men who said that Pyle had made threats and had a gun. The men said they, were strikers but the con- stable did not know them. They pointed Pylo. out to the constable through the tflass floor, followed a argument as to the right or wrong of making the arrest. The constable firmly maintained he did right to arrest a man for carry- ing a concealed weapon while Mr. gun. effect that he and his wife were ac- costed on the street and threatened by a gang of men. He escaped by giving them to understand he had a Harris asked him if he were not guil- ty of a crime for making ail assault and interfering with a man in his home. Chief Gillcspie said he saw that the drift Vent of to the show cross-examination that the po- lice were prejudiced in favor of the strikers but that he wo'uld prove that they were not. He then asked the witness regarding the arrest and maintained that the constable was doing his duty. Constable Tvroning told of receiv- ing infornmijon from Pyle to the The constable told him that if he could point out the men he would take action at once. Pjrle- told Kroning that he had threatened the men by putting his hand to his hip pocket.. Constable Kron'ing then told Pyle to return at -a later hour in the morning and he would go with, him. in search of the men who had molested him. Constable Silliker were afraid to come to the police station and lay a charge. Also that there was no evi- dence to convict as Pyle was in his boarding house when arrested and was not seen with a gun on the street and that he had much reason to fear he was in danger. Chief Gillespie again made clear that it fully proven that the law had been broken. Also that there was no evidence that Pyle had been molested but if tho men could be found the police would immediate- ly take action to protect Pyle. S. McLaughlin Co..

Winnipeg, Man., Sept. '03 Dear note your letter of the 14th inst. as to the spread be- tween No. 1 Alberta Red wheat and No. 1 Nor. wheat. It is a very hard thing to fix an arbitrary be- tween these two grades. The Alberta Red wheat this year is of exception- ally good milling quality and for this reason the price has been advanced until today the Xo. 1 Alberta is worth the same price as No. 1 Nor. wheat. Both of these grades are worth from 99J cents to Si.00 per bushel in store Fort William.

"Tn other said the magistrate to Mr. Harris, "you want the evidence fav- orable- to your client.'but not what is against him." Mr. Harris then warned the chief that if the evidence proceeded the re- sult would be on his own head.

Big grain vessels from Fort William are at Nine Mile Point unable to get into the harbor.
