Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 2, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGESTX THE LETHBRIDGE DAILT HER ALT? THURSDAY, AUGUST 2, 1017 BOSTOCK OFFERS IE ROYAL Wants Conscription Held Over Till After Election-Criticizes Premier  i Ottnwa. Aug. 1.-In the session of the senate last evnniiiK. Senator Bostock, leader or the opposition, replied to Sir James Lougliceil, the, government leader, lie opened by rending the letter that had been addressed to him by Sir Clifford Sifton and stated that.he had seen it in the press before he received It through the mails. With some of the statements of the letter nil could agree. With some, lie for one, could not agree for they were not founded upon fart. Ho could not agree with Sir Clifford's declaration that Sir Wilfrid Lauder had stated that no more men and no more money should be given by Canada. The fact was, Senator Bostock said. Sir Wilfrid had declared that Canada should continue to do all for the cause that lay-In her power to do, but Sir Wilfrid was not prepared to force conscription on Canada without the people being consulted. "That is a position with which, I think, the country will ngree." said Senator Bostock. There was no Justification for the statement that more men could not be obtained from Quebec under the voluntary system and that the rest of the country would refuse to contribute more men until Quebec'hud done its share. Ho did not believe that even If it were shown that Quebec were not doing her dnty the rest of the country would refuse to do Its duty. It was not true that there was a controlling element preventing Sir Wilfrid from doing what should bo done. He was doing all he could along' the lines that he deemed proper. The controlling element referrod to was the nationalist group. It was a strange thing that It was this very group that Sir Clifford Slfton, In 1911, had made use of In the election to oppose the Laurier naval policy. Sifton and the nationalists had killed that policy. If tt had not heen for them Canada would have warships on both the Atlantic and the Pacific, and the Pacific coast would not have had to depend upon Japan for protection and would have had yards established that could be building the ships Britain so much requires. The possibility of a coalition government disappeared when- Sir Robert Borden determined upon his compulsion policy before inviting Sir Wilfrid to consider union, tbe only thing that thon remained was an appeal to the people and in the opinion of Senator Bostock that was the proper way to settle the problem. Senator Bostock criticized the prime minister for hav ing sprung conscription on the people without preparation. This was in contrast to the manner in which the matter had been dealt with in Britain. Since the beginning of the year there had been 0,000 Canadian volunteers a month. The government should have seen what it could do in the way of getting volunteers before forcing conscription on the people, tt should have seen what it could do in raising volunteers lor the Canadian army among the 3,939,000 Canadians and descendants of Canadians in the United States who, last month, had Bent 2,800 volunteers to Canada. The light in Europe was democracy against autocracy, yet in Canada conscription wa� to be applied by autocratic methods. Ha quoted the declaration of the Hon. Mr. Balfour that the only form of government that was worth while �Was that in which the final authority was with the people. Therefore, he would offer an amendment declaring that the bill should receive second reading only "with the understanding that this bill will not come Into force until after a general lection." Finally he said that there was no deBlre to control the vote of any senator, but that each should vote M he personally felt. The debate was continued by Senator Dandurand and adjourned by Senator Perrier.

TOaONTO.CAMADA_ AUTO CLUB SENDS       *>.*   O     (CONTINUED ON PAGE SIX) GOVT. FARM LABOR * AGENT IS HERE ' A. D. Laraont arrived in the city �esterdW from Olds to open up the provincial government harvest labor agency here and was installed this morning In the Board of Trade build Ing, where he is ready to take orders for men and to place men with farm ere needing their services. Mr. La moat thinks most of Southern Alber ta's harvesters this year will come from Montana, Washington and Da kota points where the harvest is eltb er nearly over or where the cropi are very short. What the prevailing wage will be it is hard to say, but Calgary newspapers state that it will be in the neighborhood of $3 per day. Harvest in Southern Alberta will start next week and by August 15th It will be In full swing provided the present weather continues. unanimous in the support of the Chautauqua, and that possibly the intervening Sunday will be utilized by a great union meeting addressed by some of the noted talent of tho Chautauqua, and where some of the fine Chautauqua musicians may add to tho entertainment. Would it not be a great Idea to have J. C. Herbsman, who has a national reputation on "Community Building" to address a great union meeting on that subject on Sunday night at the Chautauqua auditorium One thing sure is that Leth-bridge church people will not be slow to foresee their opportunity and will co-operate in making a success of the Chautauqua. At somo other places the farmers have been slow to patronize the Chautauqua until they realized what it was, but at Lethbridge I am sure that our fanners will lose no opportunity to attend the Chautauqua. Listen to what a farmer from Spring Coulee says in writing to W. J. Lloyd for tickets: "The Chatauqua was one of the things that I vent much regretted leaving behind when I came here from the States, and am of course very glad to see it started here and am enclosing you 110.00 for four season tickets." Suppose that the weather is dry and the crop will not make as much as you expected, is that any reason why you should miss the things that go to make life more enjoyable? The Chautauqua is particularly for the farmers. I am sure that no farmer who can possibly attend will miss his opportunity to do so. At other places parents have been slow to send their children until they knew more of what the Chautauqua did in that regard, but in Leth bridge, the Chautauqua Town, I am sure that the kiddies will be sent In great numbers to the first Chautauqua. One town closed with 200 kiddies in the final "All Nations Pageant." Let Leth-brjdge make a record by opening the Chautauqua with double that number of kiddies present. Let the mothers and the kiddies both come to the Chautauqua on the first day at ten o'clock. If you will do this, take my word for it you will begin then and there to be a booster for the Chautauqua. Sunday school teachers particularly should boost for the Chautauqua. And then there are our English peaking miners. The writer was raised with people of that kind, and knows them to stand high in intelligence, we ill miss our guess if the miners' families do not attend the Chautauqua in great numbers. , ' Are you too busy to take a vacation and go to some distant place of amusement? The Chautauqua brings your vacation to your very door, and in-lead of costing you $100.00 or more, it costs you but $2.50. Are we poor, too many in the family to get away, or to go to expensive entertainments? Remember at the Chautauqua for $2.50 season ticket, you get twelve entertainments, any one of which would cost you near that price if attended singly In the cities. The big Chautauqua will be held at the Eckstorm rink. It can be made to accommodate five thousand people. The city and the surrounding country as Btated in the first of this letter is lining up beautifully. Let us live up to our reputation as real live community builders, and whether we are merchants or farmers, whether we are rich or poor, whether we are busy or taking our vacation, let us all get behind the movement, and as Lethbridge was the first to Invite the Chautauqua to Canada, let us prove that we ave the best prepared for its coming, and the most able to. utilize the groat advantage that comes to a by war of the Chautauqua. Forty-Five Carloads Visit North Town and Accorded A Great Welcome lethbridge Auto Club paid Its respects to the people of Carmangay and they did it in right proper fashion. Hetwoen 40 and 50 automobiles wore in the procession which left here at shortly after two o'clock for the 4.'-mile run. and they arrived In Carman-gay between four and five o'clock. Altogether there wore more than 200 people from Lethbridge on the trip, the majority of them business men. And they wero royally entertained at Carmangay by the members of the Carmangay Auto Cinb. Secretary P. II. Russell of the Carmangay and P. Craddock met the Lethbridge visitors about five miles from the town, pointing the way. As the autos arrived the committee of the Carmangay Club piloted tho visitors to the Orange Hotel, where a fine lunch was served. The return trip last evening was a sort of free and easy affair. There was no effort made to keep the Lethbridge contingent together. Quite a number stayed for the dance which concluded the afternoon'* entertainment. Altogether the trip, which was the first largoly attended tour of the Lethbridge Auto Club was a huge success and augurs well for the future. J. T. Graham was pathfinder for the crowd, but various roads were taken by other members of the party in order to escape the newly graded roads and the dust. The baseball team wishes to thank Mr. Graham for his kindness in putting at their disposal, on behalf of the Auto Club, his new Studebakor ten-seater bus, which did fine service on the trip. Members of the Carmangay Club told the Herald man who accompanied the Lethbridge party that they were greatly pleased at the return visit of the people from the south, and that any disappointment they may have felt over the unfortunate turn of events when Carmangay visited Lethbridge had been forgotten.

Aug. 1.-Sixty-three Internes from Mara Lake camp, which is being closed, arrived at Morrissey internment camp yesterday and will be held with the other prisoners. About fifteen more guards have been added, mostly from the 102nd militia regiment. A dense cloud of smoke has again risen.up the Elk river, and seems to be gaining in volume. Forest Ranger Hart and Fire Warden Ingram are looking after the fire on behalf of the government and the Elk Lumber company are keeping men at work to protect their timber and endeavor to keep the fire from reaching surrounding green timber. The recent rains helped temporarily, to subdue the fires, but there has not been sufficient fall to permanently affect the dry condition of the slashings and other timber, and the danger still threatens the timber not yet~visited by fire. No danger to towns or camps is now apprehended. Enquiries at the office of the Grows Nest Pass Coal company, failed to elicit any confirmation of the story of the incendiary nature of the fire at the Michel tipple. There Is no evidence that it was the result of incendiaries, and it is not believed that any such cause" can be attributed. The men who were working in Number Eight mine, will have to be placed temporarily, in other mines and the output will not be affected to any appreciable extent during the repairing of the tipple. This Is the day for the small boy and girl in town. The union Sunday school picnic is being held at the city park and is largely attended, children from all the schools being present in unprecedented numbers, and community I hundreds of old children are present J to see the children enjoy themselves.
