F BÏ SHOOTING ÄT BELT Justice Lamere Fixes Amount Necessary For Release of Tony Moreilo. A bail bond in the amount of $2,500 is demanded in the justice court ol' P. E. Lamere for the release from the county jail of Tony Moreilo, accused of first degree assault as a result of the si).Kit ing of Charles Sanders at Belt two weeks ago. Moreilo was held without bail until Thursday owing to uncertainties sur rounding the outcome of Sanders' injur ies, but with the passing of the patient beyond the critical stage a complaint al leging assault in the first degree was filed and the fixing of the bond submit ted to the court. Justice Lamere held that in view of the seriousness of the charge a heavy bond should be demanded, and named §2,500 as the amount necessary for the prison er's release. The bond had not been furnished Thursday evening. It is al leged that Moreilo shot Sanders while the latter and James Dano, Morello's partner, were engaged in an altercation in front of the Anacooida pool hall at Belt.

Woolworth's today—Carnation milk (tall size) 10 cents a can.—Adv. Forsees No Decline Soon in Retail Price of Women's Garments "There is not likely to be any percept ible drop in the prices of women's ready to wear garments before spring, any how." Miss Frances Gage of the Gage Specialty shop, who has just returned from a buying trip in the east, said. "To be sure there has been a drop in the price of raw materials, but owing to the high cost of labor the drop is not being felt in the ready-to-wear markets. There was one or two places that were over stocked that were selling at a reduction, but in most places garments are scarce and the-prices high. Of course one can buy cheap things but one always could— that is things of flimsy material and poorly made. But in the quality of goods I have always carried I found I was not able to buy any cheaper in spite of the stories that are being circulated about the lowering prices."
