Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 13, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta SATURDAY, APRIL 13, 1918 TIIE LETHBRIOGE , DAILY HRRALD PAGE THIRTEEN Carvell Tells of Haying Abolished The Patronage Ottawa, April 13.-Some Interesting omspondence between Hon. F. B. CarvaU and A. K. Fripp, senior mem-bar for Ottawa, relative to tho abolition of patronage was tabled in the commons yesterday at the rcquent of A. R. McMaster, Liberal member (or Brome. In the correspondence the minister of public works states most emphatically that patronage has been abolished insofar as his department is concerned, while Mr. Fripp expresses himself as being pleased that this is the case. The correspondence commenced on October 1*, 1917, when Mr. Fripp wrote the minister asking that the firm of JMcFarland and Douglas be placed on the patronage list. Replying to this communication on October 23, Mr. Carvell said: "Your friends will have opportunity of tending; on any work coming within their line, but so far as this department Is concerned, there will be no patronage list in the future. As far as possible everything will be done by public tender and contract and every member of the community will have an equal opportunity of .working for) the government. Efficiency and economy Will be the guiding principles in carrying on the business affairs of the Dominion." On January 3, 1918, Mr. Fripp sent to Mr. Carvell a memorandum he had transmitted to Hon. N. W. Kowell, president of the privy council suggesting that with regard to the mechanics employed in the dredging branch and the shipyard, some 1,000 men, some one had beon appointed to deal with applications tor work. Mr. Fripp suggested that Mr. Shearer, the man who employs these men was too busy and further suggested the appointment of Mr. David Rice to look after the em ployment of the men required. He des cribed Mr. Rice as an ex-alderman of Ottawa, "who knows the laboring classes very well." Mr, Carvell replied to Mr. Fripp on January 4, saying he was sorry he could not agree with the member for Ottawa. "If Mr. Shearer has not the necessary ability to employ these men," he said, "I think it is up to me to find some person who has." Keplying on the following day, Mr. Fripp eaid It was apparent he had not made himself clear. I want to get rid of the 50 Or 60 people who crowds my office daily, he said, adding, the people Of Ottawa have lived on patronage for 60 years and It .will require some tajCt to eradicate the practice. Writing to Mr. Fripp on January 11, Mr. Carvell said: "I haye given Mr. Shearer instructions regarding employment or the. class of people referred to In your letter, I have "also instructed him that it will not be necessary for them to produce a letter from either yourselS or Dr. Chahot (Junior'memnor for Ottawa) or the use of tho other influence for the purpose of ohtalnirig employment in this department." Tho correspondence also shows that on February 12, Mr. Fripp wroto to the minister asking that a number of Ottawa concerns be given an opportunity of tendering for tho new department building. The minister in reply said in part: "Every contractor not only in Ottawa but in Canada will be given an opportunity to tender. The contract will go to the lowest tenderer, pro vlded the firm has the financial ity to carry out the work." ibil- Regina, Apr. 13.-The Canadian government offered the services of the R.N.W.M.P. to the British government aa a cavalry unit about a year ago, was the statement made to the Canadian Press today by a returned soldier in close touch with military circles both In Ottawa and London. He states that it was well known to Canadian officers attached to Ar-gyle House at the time and that it was also known that the British government had accepted the offer of the services of the famous force but the "project was killed," by what the Regina Post informant termed, "the sinister influences which lurked around Argyle House."

Robertson).--It is believed to be impossible to grant the request to extend the three months' furlough granted the married men' of the "original firsts" now In "Canada. It is understood that Canadian auijhorities' here give the following griountfs for refusal: '� "The conditions under which married men of the first contingent received leave was the fact that it was thought there would be sufficient time for them to return to Prance .before the big German offensive started. "There was also considerable difficulty in securing consent for leave to Canada of such a large number of men. . Not only was there the transportation problem, but the fact that other Dominions have been unable to secure such a privilege. The military situation is such at the present time that every one is being recalled as it would be.unfair to Canadians in the trenches in this crisis to' grant an extension to married men' now in Can-", ada. . , "It is considered here that the calling up of married men under the Military Service Act has no bearing whatever on. the return of the first Contingent married men."

Northrup, MR., new clerit'of the House of Commons. oil---; S5fkMost Beautiful Car in/bnerica r - -IE The "Preferred Investment 99 The wise man selects his motor car investment in much the same way that he selects a first mortgage bond or any other high grade security. He looks for permanent, enduring quality-not mere surface veneer. He looks to the integrity of the manufacturer, the critical expressions of the average owner and the history of the product over a period of years. It Is on this basis that we would have you consider the Paige. From the standpoint of initial cast, ". �. our's is not a cheap motor car. There ere many cars on the market that sell for less money than' the . Paige and we could readily buijd them ourselves if we considered that the best.policy. But we don't. We firmly believe "that self-respect, comfort, and enduring satisfaction have an actual market value. So we build those things into our product. We take just a little more timet-just a little more care in the selection of materials-^justia little more pride in our work.v And the result is a real motor car-not a makeshift or com-, promise. In brief, while^eagreeth�t first cost is' an important consideration, v/e are convinced that Ultimate cost is vastly more important. We Believe that the only true test of economy is twelve months of hard, gruelling service on the road. We believe that freedom from repair bills -and excessive depreciation is infinitely more desirable than a mere catch-penny list price. ' These are our convictions."" We have held to them staunchly during many fitful periods'in the motor car, industry'.'" So long as the Paige Company is a factor in tine making and distributing of motor cars, we shall continue to adhere to them. And it: is because of these convictions, , and their practical application to manufacturing, that the Paige car is regarded as a "Preferred Invest-' ment" in every automobile mart of the world.
