Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 13, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE TEJi THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY ro-' duction of steel from which ships ' could be built had not received a l direct answer from"the government. ; It had, however, received a most dis-' couraging indirect answer in the state-' ment that the government had contracted with a firm in Nova Scolia for all the ship plates that Canada would require for the next five years and that there was no need tor any one else to apply. He said there was no possibility of an unaided firm competing with the Nova S.'otia firm which had received bonuses in the past. The debate was adjourned. FACILITIES, COAL W. A. Buchanan Says Coal Would Be Available if Transportation In a discussion on fuel shortage in the House of Commons on April 3 Hansard reports W. A. Buchanan, M. P. for Lethbridge, as making the following observations: "I do not. represent a part of the country that is suffering from fuel shortage: in our part of the country we have all we require and are able to supply a good portion of Western Canada. Bat I would like to offer a suggestion to the Government, and it relates somewhat to the question of anthracite coal mentioned by my hon. friend from Calgary (Mr. Twee-dte). The mines ot Western Canada unquestionably could supply the demands of Western Canada, if the transportation facilities were available, and if we could alwaye be sure of the conditions of the labor market. Given those conditions, all the anthracite coal at present going into Manitoba and parts of Saskatchewan could go to Ontario, for instance, where the shortage is the greatest. But it is necessary first of all to make sure of the transportation facilities in order to get coal from the mines of Alberta east to the provinces of Saskatchewan and Manitoba. It is also important that the labor market should be assured all the year round. The chief difficulty with the mines of Western Canada at present is that they are not sure of an all-the-year-round market, month, in and month out, and until that is remedied it will be impossible to have a steady supply of labor, because miners are dissatisfied it they can secure only four -or five months' work with one mine owner, and during the rest of the year have to look around for employment at other occupations. If we could arrange to provide the mines of Western Canada with the entire Western Canada market, it would assist to a great extent in meeting the labor situation. Of course, there has been the difficulty that Western Canada coal has lost some of its fuel value when in storage, and dealers have not been anxious to store it for that reason, but discoveries hove been made -that seem to promise success, and I would suggest to the Government that they inquire into these remedies either through the Conservation Commission or through the Fuel Controller's Department. . Once the storage difficulty is overcome it will be possible for the dealers throughout the prairie provinces to acquire coal during the summer months for use in the fall and winter, and when we can do that, we can keep the mines in operation the year round, and that will solve the labor- difficulty. - We have only tapped> the - coal resources of Western Canada. The mines of Western Canada at the present time have a greater capacity than the demand of that country, and there are unlimited areas of coal as yet untouched. If the difficulties I have mentioned could be overcome.",\Vestern Canada could supply the demands of all Ontario. I believe. Of course, Ontario is accustomed to using a hard coal, and we are accustomed to using a coal that is called soft, but it suits our purpose in every respect, and I am . sure .Ontario wuvld find it quite useful, especially to "meet shortages of the kind that occurred during last winter.''

Grassy Lake, Apr. 12.-A freight train east-bound was badly wrecked at 9 o'clock Thursday morning about a mile east of town. ^ The passenger trains were held up till about 6 o'clock in the evening when the track was cleared and traffic resumed. Things were pretty badly piled up on either side, one box car lays upside down in the ditch, two box cars are smashed to kindling wood. A car of sacked wheat is scattered over the ground. A car of lumber is scattered and broken. The wrecking train which arrived about noon, soon got the track cleared and are still working at the scene of the wreck. Fortunately no one was hurt.

Edmonton, Apr. 12.-Declaring he made the statement indirectly attributed to him in a question at the public accounts committee of the legislature that he would have offered two points more than the provincial bottdisstie of $1.,"100,000 was spld for Inst August, James McGeorge of McGeorge, Chauvin and Townshend, Insurance and financial agents, appeared before the, committee Friday morning and indignantly challenged the statement of W. V. Newson, deputy provincial treasurer, thai he was seeking "inside information." "I don't want anyone to hate the impression I ever asked Mr. Mitchell or any of his subordinates either for any inside information trr any information I was not entitled to," warmly declared Mr. McGeorge, anil he said if anybody had said so it was absolutely untrue. The provincial treasurer admitted he had told Mr. McGeorge he would be notified but had to act so suddenly when in Toronto he thought there was no use in communicating with Edmonton. Mr. McGeorge took' particular exception to a question of Hon. G. P. Smith, "did ho want to find out what w<*uld the beet and slickest time to bid?" Mr. Smith, he said, had denied the use of the word and .the official stenographer was requested to read his notes. The insinuation in the adjective, Mr. McGeorge declared, was derogatory of his bunlnesa character. Both Hon. A. G. MacKay, and Hon. Wilfrid Garfepy pointed out that the minister had not made any statement. He Simply put a question. "They call mo slick every day," humorously commented the* member for Athabasca, "it's a compliment." "That's the cause you are and I am not," rejoined Mr. McGeorge, and the committee roared. "Mr. McGeorge Is Jnst plain Scotch,'* answered Mr. MacKay.

Reid (retired), says Gin Pills Succeeded where all other remedies Failed! At Advanced Age, Veteran offers (or Service in France. Hamilton, Ont.-Count yourself fortunate if you ever have the opportunity to talk with Mr. W. G. Heid. a veteran of the Fenian Raid, and probably the only man who has served nearly half a century as a commercial, traveller in Canada. Hale and hearty, and irith the smooth, clear complexion of a man fifty years younger, Mr. Beid walks with a firm step, anil plows with enthusiasm as lie tells you of the fighting in the Feninn Itaid, of his travels in Canada during the hist 50 years, and of his desire to Berve in France right nowr'if the authorities enn bo made to realize that men of "three score years and ten" may be fit for active work abroad., And you may bo sure of this. If Mr. Reid succeeds in bsing sent to France, he will take along with him a liberal supply of Gin Pills, to which he credits his remarkable health. As a matter of fact, it was because of his stout reliance on Gin Pills that the writer sought Mr. Reid in his office in Hamilton, where he is still a guiding spirit in half a dozen enterprises. In answer to the question how he eame to try Gin Pills, the veteran said: j'l can hardly tell you how long it is since' I was first -Concerned 1 about my Kidneys, Travelling in Canada forty years ago was very different from the way you came down to Hamilton to-day, with your corridor trains, Pullman and chair ears and fine meals served on the trains, . "When I started on the roan", it often meant behind an old livery stable nag, riding through all weathers and putting up with whatever accommodation could bo found. I would often find myself doubled up with pains across the back. I was seldom free for a day from the aches, and at night my rest was disturbed as is often the case with those suffering from Kidney trouble. "I worried about my health, and it was made clear to me that if I did not get my kidneys in better shape Diabetes or Bright's Disease would inevitably follow. "I 6aw the best doctors of the day, nnd took their advice and medicines without any real benefit. Following their instructions, I have tried a change of climate-half a dozen changes-but if I got any benefit at all it was becauso of the rest, and I am not the resting kind. '' For years I took my life in my hands ?;oing ahead travelling, both here in Janada and in trips to the Old Country, always tortured by my bach and kidneys, with my legs swelling and my knuckles growing tad. '' Then one day-it must be fully fifteen years ago-I was sitting in a small hotel in Thessalon, Out.-out on the Soo braucii-and somebody noticed my distress and asked ma what was the matter. I explained, and this gentleman, Mr. A. C. Garden, ever since then a firm friend of mine, asked me to try Gin Pills.. I said it was no use, that I bad spent hundreds of dollars already for professional advice-and foi' change off climate and so on, and it wasn't likely that Giu Pills or any other preparation could avert, the tragedy I was headed for. "However, Mr. Garden was bo insistent that he had known others as sick as I was who had been very materially helped, that when ho pulled a box of Gin Pills out of his pocket and offered me some, I'took a couple then and there. "Now I am not going to tell you I was cured on the spot; I wan not. But iuside of six hours I had evidence that I had struck something different: I got so much relief that I eagerly bought a box of Gin Pills and took them according to instructions, noting happy changes for the better all^the time. "By the time I had taken"eig1it boxes 5 could honeBtly say I was cured. Waa I delighted? Why, say, I could work with my old time vim once iribre, and Bleep right through the oight without trouble. Furthermore, my dread of, Diabetes and Bright'3 Disease was gone forever. "I know I had found in Gin Pills tho conqueror of Kidney Disease, and whenever since then, as a man of my years must expect, thero has been any symptoms of the Kidneys not acting properly, ont comes my box of Gin Pills and the trouble never has a chance to develop. "Ton can Imagine I felt pretty grateful for the relief afforded me, and determined to recommend Gin Pills at every opportunity. And you will believe I have had somo opportunities. During the last ten years, though in my seventies, I have been ictive on the road from Halifax to Vancouver, and I very much doubt that what with my road work, my service in tho Fenian I?a!d of '66, and my long association with lodge work, whether you could find a dozen men in Canada with more personal acquaintances than I have. / "Train men especially seem to be subject to Kidney trouble, and. many a conductor has taken my advice regarding Gin Pills, and thanked me for it. When I remember what I endured through Kidnoy trouble and Bheumatismj and tho freedom from these which I now enjoy, I feel it not. only a duty but a pleasure to recommend Gin Pills to my thousands of personal friends.throughout Caufldt." As we walked down the road together, the writer had to step briskly to keep up with this "young" man, so that it did not seem bo strange to hear a veteran of the Fenian Uaid talk of tho services he hoped yet to be allowed to render in France. Captain Reid (he is a retired senior Captain of the 13th Royal) has offered his services to the Government to assist in taking the soldier voto in the trenches of France and Flanders. Captain Keid's only son is 0/ tho firing line. One nephew has made the supreme sacrifice. In giving this interview Mr. Reid hopes to carry on the message he has spread regarding tho treatment of Bheuniatism and Kidney Disease. And just as his new health dated from tho day he was given a sample, so may yours. Gia Pills depend for their enormous sale on tho actual results they obtain. That is why tho manufacturers are willing at all times to scud a sample hox, without charge, to anyone writing for same. Furthermore, tho full treatment mar bo purchased with equal confidence. The price is 50' cents a bor or 6 boxes for $2.50, sold by nil dealers on the understanding that if you do not derive satisfaction your money will be returned. Even though' you, personally, may have little faith in Gin Pill*; remember that others who have been cured wera equally doubtful of obtaining- results until they actually tried Gin Pills. If you, or any of your friends, hava any of the- following indications of kidney or bladder trouble, try Gin Pills: Backache, Swollen Joints, Stiffness of tho Knees, Rheumatism, Pains across the Kidneys or through tho Groins, Dizziness on Stooping, Constant Headaches, Urinary Disorders, Stono, Gravel or Inflammation of the Bladder, Lumbago or Sciatica.
