Piucher Creek, Sept. Mr. T. C. Pickard, manager of the Pin- cher Creek Mill and Elevator .Co., op- ened up the mill office this morning he found that an attempt had been made to break open the safe during the night. The work, it was quite evident, was not that of on expert cracksman. It was in. fact a very crude sort of ah effort. A hole -had been drilled down through the top of .the safe, apparently with, a breast drill. Then 'a quantity of smokeless powder was put down in the safe and a fuse ignited. _ The explosion was strong' enough to" damage the "safe to any extent and "the burglar failed in. his 'effort' to getntrr He" in- convenienced the" carrying away of Harty, era! asaoeiatkm that ha. will not again be a- candidate for the Commons.

MR DOUGLAS TELLS ABOUT THE SALE Answers Charge About Sale Of Site For the Jail At Lethbridge Calgary, Sept. the head house on it, which the government ing "Another effort at scandal.goes wanted. The A. R. I. Co. has Albertan says: .On Saturday the-Eye Opener pub- lished what it .described a3-a scandal in. connection with the purchase by the provincial government of land near Lethbridge for the provincial jail. It said' that Howard Douglas, superintendent of Parks, purchased-a quarter of a section of land In Jardine Faction Was Victorious New Westminster. B. C., The Jardine faction of the. divided local Liberal party -won a signal vic- tory -at a meeting held last night for the purpose of electing delegates to the nominating convention next week, only two Kennedy men being elected out of a total of forty-eight, delegates. Aa this city furnishes nearly fifty per cent, of the delegates to the convention the nomination, oi Robert Jardine, as the Liberal candidate is conceded on all gidea. Jardine had been nomin- ated in November of last year, but rtnifned a few weeks ago because of the opposition of the Kennedy men. bridge for and insido "of weeks sold the same to the'-.govern- ment for It refers to this as the" "juicy Howard Douglas and intimates that a portion of the profits in this case went for election in the Lethbridge election. Hr. Douglas was in, the city yester- day, leaving last night JTpr Montana. He gave the details of the transac- tion and properly and promptly nail- Entries Under the New Act OlUwa, Ont., Sept.

Mr. Douglas stated to the Albertan that he had been informed that the Eye Opener would make a correction in the next issue and that the editor had admitted that he had been mis- informed. Mr. Douglas said that he and Mr. Carey in June, 1906. hart bought a quarter section and an additional 80 acres, paying for the proper- ty. They got it afirr the forclosurc of a by the Union Bank. They paid and tbe rest was on a .mortgage. In July 1907 the provincial gov- ernment Txnight the 8O acres and paid for it. Mr. Carey wanted the money and agreed to give Mr. Douglas the rest of tho property, that is the 160 acres in return for the government cheque for Mr. Douglas assuming the mortgage. This seemed good to Mr. land further out, which was not fenced, with no buildings on it; which was in no way improved, they are holding now at an acre. The transaction was in ev- ery way above board and honest." It will be seen that everything was done in the most businesslike man- ner. There-cannot be the slightest suspicion of wrongdoing or graft. Any person, who knows Mr. Douglas is cor tain -that ho would not be a party to anything 6f that kind. The provincial government has been quite free from o.ny charges of irregularities and the 'first accusation of graft will come to a sudden and speedy finish. The Albertan refers to the Eye Opener's abuse of W. C. Simmons, after quoting some of the abusive language used by that paper, the Al- bertan says: What do the people of Medicine Hat riding think of a campaign such as this? Mr. Simmons was the selection of the Medicine Hat Liberals, who represent probably half of the voters that riding at least. What do the people of Lethbridge think of this? Mr. Simmons was elected by bridge people to represent "them in the provincial legislature. Is this kind of a campaign endorsed by Mr. Magrath, the Conservative candidate? An attack such as that, requires no answer. It is its own best answer. (Spectirto the Herald.) Clareshblm, elevator men and grain shippers at a loss, to understand how Manag- er Strong of the Pacific Elevator Company should "-make the statement he did hi the Calgary News on the 19th irust. claiming; that the South country elevators' in particular, being well supplied" with cars by the C.P.R., while are oa far as this point is Concerned, and we believe that we are.'no worse off than others, that we Claresholm today are no less thTai 85 cars short for grain. As that nuihiber is already up- on, the order book" the good service Mr. Strong praises the C.P.H. for, onsists so far'ks- Claresholm is concerned, three -cars per day since shipping began one? month ago. It would take no Jess than twelve months- at this 'rate to move our present grain crop.v'Unless we can an average ._of ten cars day there: "is serious" trduble" aheiar and great loss to our fanning commun- ity. Mr. Strong's own elevator has been practically out of commission for want of cars for some days past and is today completely blocked as are each of the three elevators in town. The Claresholm Grain and El- evator Co. require 50 cars today, 25 for Claresholm and 25 for Granum, both elevators are out of. business, at present. We are informed by a per- son we believe is in a position to know that the C.P.R. Co. has no shortage of cars. That there are to- day and have been for many days sufficient empty cars at Calgary al- one to relieve the pressure at this point. The difficulty appears tobe that tlwy had neither men or engine to move them. The question ol i.'ar shortage is becoming- very: acute, vbe statements of Mr. and the C.
