Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 27, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LEtllBRIDGE PAlfrY HERALD FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 1918 Mil TO PUBLIC fo the Public: / ; y When any private'citizen desires to Write 4x> the papers, or minister apeak . rroni the pulpit, and say all kinds of  jrreguhir,:.thtn#ra and untruths, - such jt commim'tcatJfcjn or speech . is all right He is Justified In maligning a {esponaible officer and reflecting on lis character, his honor, his Judg-� ment and bis intellect. This is not a tirade, but simply a public communication. When, however, the mayor re-, plies defeidlng -himself from al! these violent, untruthful statements, in a common-sense logical manner,, he is guilty of delivering a tirade, in the judgment. of= Jtfr. Ursenbach and Mr. Cragg. I am willing to let the public |udge who is delivering the tirade. ; In answer to Mr. Vrsenbach's sec- ond letter I might be permitted to say that he presents a one-sided argument that will never convince the majority of minds that he has the right view, and further he does not take the wider view that the wise men of all -countries have been working on this same problem for hundreds of years Vwlthout. an effective solution. I have not the'.teemrlty to aik the paper' for  enough space to answer the questions raised in detail. I must he content with b relatively shor- reply, and say: (1) I am. familiar with the details of Lord Kitchener's method, which reduced the number'of cases of venereal disease cases in the Indian army fully ninety per cent. 1 cannot go into details, but suffice it to say that tht! method was the one that largely influenced me in adopting the view J have. lS) The Imperial government appointed a royal commission which issued a very long scientific report on the subject. That report makes the flat statement that seventy-five per cent.-six in every eight cases of venereal disease in the male population CONCLUDES SESSION OF THE SUPREME COURT The PetersonJ-assault ease' was a conclusion yesterday afternoon, resulting in a fine of ISO being imposed on Charles Neil, the aggressor in the affair, and a $26 fine for the other Nell brother. . His Lordship In 'summing up the case said that there was no doubt that both the accused were guilty of assault, but as there; were certain circumstances that tended to aggravate them, the penalty Imposed would be of & light nature. This case concludes this sitting of the Supreme Court.. was contracted from semi-professional prostitutes-a form of prostitution that could not be effectively controlled by any public process. It does not fail to point out the lamentable effect on the individual and posterity. In fact it sounds a note of alarm, and ' very strongly recommends curative means as the.way to combat the ravages of venereal disease. I do not think the American government Ins done anything so effective as the action of the Imperial government. In nearly every British paper you read, you will find the following: Some Perils of Venereal Disease. "This announcement is issued by the National Council for Combatting Venereal Diseases, a representative body recognised by the government. President. Rt. Hon. Lord Sydenham; Vice-presidents, the Bishop of Southward Sir Thomas Barlow, Bart. K.C.V. O.M.D.. chairman of propaganda, Sir Malcolm Morris K.C.V.O. F.R.C.S.E., General Secretary, Mrs. A. C. Got to, O.B.E. Typical Cases. "A" says that he has "only*a slight touch of it." and does not worry. If the disease is not treated at on^e it may spread and bring most dnnger-out results. "B" has "had it a good while and tried different kinds of stuff without getting well." "B" should immediately consult a doctor. Self drugging is almost always useless, and frequently dangerous. "C" says "after all, the risk of catch#| ing venereal disease is very small." No. There are about 140,000 fresh cases every year. The recent royal commission found, that in large cities one person out of every ten of the population is or has been Inflicted with syphilis. "D" waited to see "if it got anv worse" before'he went to the doctor. This Is to risk being broken for Ladies'Coats, Queen Quality99 Coats Another shipment of 34 of; these fashionable coats arrived yesterday afternoon, completing our Fall Order. . / These garments are all of the latest and best styles the season has brought forward, and the material and workmanship is unsurpassed at the price. ,We have 65 of these coats no two alike.

If the diseases are treated early, they,can almost certainly be cured; if. they are neglected the gravest results may' ensue. There is one thing, and one thing only to be done by anyone who is Infected, who suspects infection, or who has taken a risk of infection- It is to go to the^ doctor or hospital at ones It is no 'use saying "I am tied to business." ;Business must' wait. It is no use saying '"I am afraid to go." There is-no reason to be afraid to go; there is every reason to be afraid If one does not go. Free'Treatment.. Free treatment, under conditions of secrecy, is provided by the government in most centres. Apply at the out-patients department of the nearest hospital, or to the local medical officer of health. Further notes will appear next Sunday in this paper." I do not think I need pursue Mr. Ursenbach's argument further. We have here authoritative information first hand, from our own government and suited to our national life. My friend the Rev. Mr. Cragg accuses me of being an infidel. I am not. I am a Presbyterian, and just as good a one an he is a Methodist. 1 am a Calvlnlst," because I conceive that is the only theory that is consistent with the Omnipotence of God. I do not press anyone else to be a Calvinist. With me religion is a matter of individual conscience, and neither Mr. Cragg nor any other man is allowed to think for me. On many subjects I know more, at least I think so when I listen to them, than the preachers, but that does not lessen my appreciation of the minister's endeavors, nor does it reduce my interest in what he says. To the contrary the fact that I do not agree stimulates thought. In trying to recontrovert my reasoning, he refers to tbe conversion of St. Paul and Luther. When was Paul an Irreligious man? As I read the scriptures there never was a minute of St. Paul's thinking life that he was not religious. How then does his conversion refute ray argument? Again when in all Luther's life was he not a Christian, and when was be an irreligious man? Never. He was born a^ Christian. Is not the Roman Catholic church Christian? He was a monk .of that church. The "Herald" says "he (Mr. Cragg) repeated assertions he had made before that there was not a section ot the city which, did not have a bouse of Hi-fame." I brand this as. wrong, and defy Mr. Cragg to prove It. I do so because Mr. Cragg has come to the police station (he has never come lu the mayor's office, to discuss things or'give the mayor a fair chance) and quizzed the ooltce, I presume, to get something behind mr|back that might convict me of connivance. He has made almor; the. same statement to the police as given above, as a leader or a trip, and then when he found it did not work, took it back, saying he did not intend it-it was a slip. That Is not very honorable on Mr. Cragg's part, but I am willing that he do all that kind ot work that his conscience will permit of. I have nothing to fear from it. I have said to Mr. Cragg before and say it again: If you know of one place of assignation in this city or suspect one place, drop the mayor a note, ft need not even be signed if you do not want to, and it will be thoroughly, investigated by orders from the mayor. Mr. Cragg hitherto has never taken advantage of this invitation. Will he now when it is so publicly made? But I shall insist on the most careful Investigation, "because the stigma of wrongful arrest in one single case, could not be compensated for by ten convictions. The mayor receives a great deal of criticism. He has worked hard in the best interests of the city morally and every other way, in return for which he 1b sniped at from preBs and pulpit in a most unjust way. When he replies it Is a tirade. He is accused of being a Czar or a Kaiser, when he Js really the moBt democratic of men by nature, and his critics by actions and words show themselves only pretended democrats, who, are' at heart Autocrats of the worstr order. I am sorry I have not a full record of Mr. Cragg's statements. He says he wanted to invite me to his church to hear him on Saturday. He says he tried to get me on the phone twice.-I was in my office from 9:30 a.m. to 1:20 p.m. without a single minute's intermission, and at my home from 6 p.m: to 8:30 p.m., when I went to a picture show with my wife. 1 cannot see that he tried very hard to get me; I am sorry to crave this space from the paper, and to Impose this subject on the public, but I give intimation now that I do not propose to let any man traduce me or make unwarranted statements. W. D. U HARDIE. P.S.-It might be interesting to note that it is conclusively proven that syphilis was introduced from the American continent to Europe in the first 'days of the 15th century. I made this statement before at the Forum. It was pronounced as untrue by, at least one physician. I would,, suggest that our people should read, read and read, as I have done, everything they'can lay hands on pertaining to the'subject under discussion. I promise you; if you do, a very interesting time. "I suppose I can rely on these eggs being fresh ?" "Certainly, madam. We get tbeih dfrMfc from the manufacturer."-Life. OWN PARTY FAILS TO BACK HERTLING Leader of Centrist Party Also Attacks German War Minister Copenhagen, Sept. 26.-It appears from reports of yeste'rday'b session of the .reichstag- main committee in Berlin that Adolph. Groeber, one of the centrist leaders, delivered a speech before that body which is interpreted as being. somewhat  antagonistic to Chancellor von Hertling, who. himself is a centrist and lias heretofore had that party's support. Herr � Croeber's speech came as a surprfBe. to his hearers, as it had been expected that he, 'as the party's spokesman, would place himself back of the chancellor. According to the Tageblatt; however, "the circles . of the left see in bis" speech, If .not a complete disavowal of the chancellor, nevertheless, a policy which is no longer in agreement with all the measures of the government. -The sharp attack on the war minister, (Von, Stein), aroused special ;?Interest." . The Lbkal Anzeiger says It-learns from parliamentary sources that Herr Oroeber's speech caused general surprise, "it .was generally accepted," the newspaper adds, "as an Indication of a change in the attitude ot the clericals, even though Herr Groeber defended the chancellor, great numbers of his auditors had a feeilag that his words were a mere, formality and that the centre, in actuality, is.'facing a hew orientation which will prepare the ground for an understanding with "both the majority parties.''.1; BUY YOUR , LADIES'BOOTS AT THE HUDSON'S BAY SHOE SALE Ladies' and Children's Fall Shoes " Fashion's: latest shoes in bNxwh.*, grayB, blacks and taupe ' buck In 8 to 10 Inch tops.
