Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 27, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta *W*.->i-,'.r , �>.M-...,-rt\vds not concerned. Efforts were being made to get in touch with those who returned from overseas before the commission had been nppointed. At present there were every day about 450 men.in attendance at the ulassos, and from fall to. spring seventy-five to 100 at EJmonton and Ogden. )n addition men were taking outside courses under the same conditions as if they were in the school. One man was learning pastry making in a bakery, one dental mechanics with a dentist, one was taking up oxy-acelylene welding at Edmonton. Others were qualifying for grain ir.spccting: and the operating of elevator?, and one man was making a �;ieat success at 'pictoral sign pafnt-ing. /is n result of this vocational training among older men who, Mr. Boyce said,' enlisted at the ago of forty-two, but  whose ages were in reality from forty-seven to sixty-five, it was thought there would be a general- influence all over the country, as the?e men act as trustees of schools in their districts toward the better adjusting of hand and head �work in the Schools and lie also hoped to see in every well equipped hospital occupational work carried on as a part of curative treatment and a trade school for the purpose of assisting industrial cripples, instead of being obliged by reasou of their disability to exist under compensation received under the compensation act FOMlfS FIRE IN HOTEL Backed by a reputation the canadian salt co, limited People's Forum Communications under this heading must bear the signatures of the writers.

IA T\ I TT"V cnt I-Liils Pain . Foremost, Sept. 27.-Fire broke out' here in the Foremost hotel owned and operated by Mr. Geo. Anton, between two and three o'clock this morning, destroying the building and contents together with the building and contents owned by P. Davidson, barber and the private garages of Mr. Swan-son and Mr. Douohcie. The fire appears to have started in thB kitchen of the hotel, and with the wind in the southwest came to the forward part of the building arouBing Miss Carte in whose charge the place was In the absence of the proprietor. She in turn gave the alarm and the ringing of the church bell aroused the community. Only the heroic-efforts of the citizens and the somewhat favorable position of the wind saved a large part of the town from being destroyed. As it was there were times when the Donohue Block and the printing office and the residence of Mr. Swanson were in em-mlnent danger. There were only three transients in the hotel, Mr. and Mrs. Gerklin and Mr. Bade of Orion. All of the occupants escaped, the ladies however only in their night robes. The building was, owned by Chas. Rusmey, together with the upstairs furniture. All is a total loss, though insured"fir $2500. The house and contonts of Mr. Davidson were insured for |900. It Is not ascertained what amount of insurance was on the property of Mr. Anton. HAND TAILORED CLOTHE and . t The superiority of hand made articles is well known.

TAILOR FOR MEN AND WOMEN FIFTH STREET SOUTH "* LETHBRIDGE A COALHURST CASE ^ Tho Editor Lethbridge Herald: Sir,-Would you he kind enough to place in y"our valuable paper the follow ing, in order to correct a juis-atiaumeiit made in your issue of Sept. 24tb last, the case of Lee Kee, of Coalhurst, fined $25.00 for throwing a bucket of slops on a neighbor's kitchen. For the above statement I will let the evidence of Mr. Clarence Hart, who stated on oath that he himself and tho Health Inspector from Edmonton had inspected the place some time, ago and had ordered a clean up and tho purchase of a. garbage can. Some time later Mr. Clarence Hart of. the Alberta Provincial Police called and repeated tho order and still no action was taken by Lee Koe. A third call was made and still no garbage can had been purchased and an inch of dirt and slops covered with flies being in evidence- just outside the back door. The Village Reeve stated after seeing the building that he considered it unsanitary and many others' made the same remark. The Court was declared open In the name of the King with the charge being read to the accused and asked if guilty or not guilty. He would give no straight answer and made several statements not bearing on the cas'e. He never asked for a lawyer and When convicted and further dictated that two dollars would be all he would pay but, I could not see that a man who defied the Health. Officer for not keep ing a sanitary place which is a ulen-nco to the public health should be'allowed to dictate what fine he will pay. I offered an appeal of the case and refused him nothing bearing, on the case. The prosecutor informed ine that the case was not again coming in court nor did he appear himself to defend it. On the prosecutor's information that the case was not up in court I did not appear. f. Mcdonald. Coaihurst, Alta., Sept. 26th, 1918. Editor of the Herald: Sir,-Since my letter appeared in last Saturday's issue there has been very much comment favorable to the necessity of a municipal "house cleaning," and from all appearances the good people of Lethbridge are at 'a point where they will take steps to demand it. I am informed that heretofore similar agitations have been set on foot, but later allowed to cool off without any steps having been taken sufficient to bring about effective results, but this time It, will require more than a charge to ".stop your pen and shut your mouth" to cool the already heated crucible. The Iron Is being struck while hot and will be kept hot. by striking, as it is not proposed that the lid be securely fastened back on the detestable segregated mess or "minimum of toleration" under the guise of law' and police protection, allowing the conspiracy of silence to maintain. Guise of law did 1 say? No, I retract that for the administration in this regard, is In open violation of the Criminal Code of Canada. In substantiation of this bold assertion I quote from the Criminal Code: "Section 228. - Disorderly1 House. Every one vis guilty of an indictable offense and liable to one year's imprisonment who keeps any disorderly house, that is to say, any common bawdy-house, common gambling-house, common betting-house or opium joint as hereinbefore defined. The definition referred to is given in the preceding section: "Section 225. - Common Bawdy-House Defined. A common bawdy-house is a house, room, set of rooms or place of any kind kept for the purposes of prostitution, or occupied or resorted to by one or more persons for such purposes." Sections 238 and 230 declare that the keeper of a baoydy-house is a vagrant and may be punished on summary conviction. i "Tho. keeping of a bawdy-house is a nuisance at common law." (I. Russell on Crimes. 5th Ed. 427.) \ And in the face of this we,' the only city in Alberta, have a restricted district in open challenge to tho Crini-innl-Codc of Canada. It is incumbent upon every man in public office, not to shake hands with himself and gloat along in ther throes of public environment, but to raise himself above that environment and create a loftier one for his subjects, whereby governmental or municipal standards may bo ameliorated, and to this end' democratic governments elect men of their choice, placing them on probation to administer in eminent functions, sworn to serve the public without fear or favor, partiality or affection. A leading minister of this city askod me yesterday what 'it was that prompted my first letter on legalized vice. I answered that, being a real estate man I had, experiences that were really shocking. I related an instance of a woman who came to my office a short time since, for the purpose of renting a teii roomed residence, and she did not hesitate in the least in telling me that she wanted it for commercial purposes. She said she was a stranger to Lethbridge but had been inform** (fer Lethbridge and Great Falls were very desirable locol �ltles for her business. I Informed her that If I did have such a place for rent,, that I would not rent it for such immoral purposes. What if I had rented a house next door to some clean family? What would you have thought of me? How many questionable houses are neighbors to Lethbridge residents loday? During the past week I have talked with, several business men relative, to thn condition and on Home few occasions, I hkve been informed that sympathy was with tho movement but 'that for commercial reasons they do net cure to -express, themselves publicly. For me I can afford to sacrifice my business on the altar for so grave a condition as confronts us today. Besides municipal history of reforms have stimulated legitimate businesses as is evidenced in the elimination of the hbIooh from our streets. It will Do. remembered that hotels threatened to close their dnora, etc., and today they can,- not accommodate! their guests. ' I am Inclined lo think, and I say this in all kindncsK. (hat the ministers op tho clly have been a little too modest in educating their people along these lln'-s. However, the Reverend-Father McCaffrey and also the Reverend C. VI. (,'ragg are to be complimented in their fearlesf, handling of the Bubject lam. Sunday, and from what I can glean their congregations endorsed their sentiments. Now someone must lead in this reform, and who should it be? I hardly think v/e could expect the Board of Trade to lead out as their interests are, primarily commercial. The seat o� reform lien in every father and mother's'heart. Who is their advisor in ethical life hut their minister? So J appeal to you mothers and fathers to cr-me to your minister without delay either in person or by letter before the coming Sabbath service and express the desires of your heart in this regard. J feel sure your effort will not be in vain, tor, being men of moral fibre and high sense of Christian duty, they will fearlessly bring this matter lo a focus, even thpugh in so doing it becomes their duty to demand that a man of highest moral efficiency pilot this municipal ship, through the dashing wav^s and rocky shoals af sin and iniquity through which we are now passing. O. F. UHSENBACH. 10 CALL SESSIONv IT JAN. 15TH Montreal, Sept. 27.-Advices from Ottawa indicate that from all present appearance* parliament will not be summoned before Jan. 15, next. The government has not decided the date upon which the legislators should be convened and Its members seem inclined to the view that an autumn session is unnecessary. So far there does not appear to Joe any prospect of a heavy legis- fatlve programme and the feeling prevails that It should be possible to call parliament together in January and(speaeofI.M?PB8Tf^ ness to be transacted before the late spring. ,' Yuen Quong Xin, a Montreal Chinaman, pleaded guilty at New Westminster to shipping a trunk containing $3,000 worth of opium from Montreal to New Westminster and was fined $150. The opium is in the hands of the customs authorities at Montreal.
