SIFTON TALKS ABOUT RESOURCES Tells Ottawa Audience About Importance Of Their Conservation UNQN CONCERT BAND An enthhusiastic meeting of the Union Concert Band .was held last night in St. Augustin's Hall. Pres- ident E. A. Cunningham called the meeting to order at. 8.15 p-m. St. Augustin'a Hall has been secured for regular "weely practices. The matter of uniforms and instruments was con sidered and committees appointed to deal with th matter. Several new- members were admitted. The finan- cial condition of the band is satis; factory and prospects are good for the coming The question of a new leader was thoroughly gone into and steps taken to secure a competent man' Jor the position. A committee was appoint- ed to advertise in the largest Ameri- can and Canadian, papers for compe- tent musicians. It was unanimous- ly decided that the band would ap- pear on the public square and give free concerts during the summer. A great deal of the feeling, between the Union Band and the Citizens' Band has been overcome and friendly ri- valry in the production of first class music now exists. The city has grown to such a size that there is now plenty of room for two first class bands and a friendly rivalry will im- prove both. SUNLIGHT SOAP MISS H. A.

(Ottawa Free Press) The immediate appointment of a lanadian Commission to carry out the principles -promulgated at the recent International conference in Washington on the conservation of national resources was advocated by Hon. Clifford Sifton, former Minis- ter of the.Interior, in the course of an address to the Toronto Univer- sity club at the Normal school lost night. Mr. Sifton showed the great waste of the forests, water power and fer- tility of the soil that was occurring all the, time, and very forcibly dwelt upon the danger of exhaustion of Canada's forests. Hon.. Sidney Fisher spoke briefly along the same lines, favoring the establishment of the proposed Com- mission on Resources. Hon. Mr. Sifton reviewed the work done at the International conference on the conservation of -resources which'he himself had attended as one of Canada's representatives. The conference had endeavored to lay down a set of principles which when adopted by. various governments would lead to. proper conservation of resources. It was decided that a Bureau to propogate the principles should be started in each country taking up the scheme. DANGERS ON LAKE ERIE One of the first questions taken up was that of public health- He had been rather surprised. to learn, that Lake Erie was in danger of contam- ination on account o'f the immense caanot spoil your There are no in Sun- Ucht Soap to bite hota In tbe most delicate fabric are ed to anyone finding adulteration in Sunlight Soap.

The conserving" of the purity of great bodies of water was one ques- tion to'be kept to the fore. In the different provinces there were different policies pursued in re- gard to 'the control of water power. The province of Ontario undoubted- ly had the most progressive policy, j In the whole Dominion there was; horse power easily avail- j able. This would be equivalent .to an annual consumption of j 000 tons of coal. If he. lived to the ordinary ailotedj span, expected to see "Ottawa not only lighted by electricity, but ed by electricity. It was only a few years since the: electric light was re- garded as a dream. All that was needed for electric heaters was aj proper mechanism, and he expected ere long to see the homes of Ottawa heated not by the present dirty and troublesome "method, hut by merely turning a switch. SHOULD PAY RENTAL. Canada's resources were not in the clutches of monopolists as was the United States. In his opinion a cer- tain amount of the gross receipts from operated by various concerns should be paid into the public treasury as rental. If some arrangement was made whereby the Dominion Government and the Pro- vincial Government would conform to the principles that had been laid down, the benefit to the Canadian pseple would be great. ItAVAGE OF WEEDS In Manitoba, great areas of land were becoming -almost useless on ac- count of weeds. people of Can- ada annually lost from 25 to 50 millions of dollars on account of the use of improper seed. The proposed Bureau would strengthen the hands of a minister who was working in the right direction. For the last 13 years the increase in Canada's mineral output had amountejd to 67 million dollars. It was not unreasonable to presume that, within the next 25 years one of the greatest mineral developments in UP YOUR HOME A coit or two of Sherwin- Williuni Brighten Up Finish Family Paint vrill "brigbten up" your shelve! cupboards, etc. repeated wash- tag. 17 good colon. witer.

FORESTS A GREAT FIELD The greatest immediate field for action in the direction of conserva- tion was to be found in the forests, which were so vitally necessary for increase and would continue ,to in- crease for all time to come.
