Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 14, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta SATURDAY. AUGUST 14, 1920 LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD ELEVEN Alberta Press >OnIrrigation TIME FOR SHOW DOWN (Calgary Premier Stewart li said to have.re- fused to budge from his previous poel- tiou wllh respect to .irrigation ID bouthern Alberta.

He ilia's that the province has the machinery needed to collect all taxes. If he. refuse's to assume on'-behalf of the Eoferijmen't this legitimate re- sponsibility, he Is d'amnlng the mpet importa'nt bit of. development work EoutHern. Alberla has .'ever- known. In other.words the premier'is saying that; has no real confidence in the south country and; nothVithslanding 'the fact that.his own' engineers have report-, ed favorably oil tho: project. -The Herald trusts that its-.- Ed- monton-' dispatch .is In' error. Tho essential in this matter IB "speed, and Preriiler.'Stewari, who knows this as well' as'-.aivv'one, has'no excuse for It Is up. to lilm-no.w' to. prove a man capable': of grasping the.''essentials of a great-project'that -spells' future wealthvip th.e whole province or'slamp man who has a mind so small that it is incapable ot getting the ,UM pro- l- goTernmeiit to rtoniJer process: of tiie "holler" they cause to be given out tho idea that by means of Irrigation the whole dry area of the aouth can be ensured'against crop failure. As a matter of fact the area that It is possible to Irrigate efficiently be- cause of the measure of water supply Is so small as to be almost negligible In comparison lo the total crop pro- ducing area of the country. Irriga- tion is Important and every reason- hie own independent judgment would give tbe aid necessary full tupport for the projects from t: Donjlnlon authorities. H beli.et.- that (he provincial cawl- all fpr the north and uoft- ing for the aoulh Is holding mier back, and It The Bulle- tin attack ai thix.partlculir moment his been Inniired because tbe feared the premier might to the vV 0 There'. facts Titt ttfrinec- and irj' it out for one yeir, intlmat: ng that if that was not sufficient to ensbio association'id market the bonds to advantage the legislature might be prepared to KO further. This reply was not entirely satis- actory. But no amendment or rcso-' utioh w.as moved In the house, and he legislation was not challenged by any vote. The newspapers which are taking tbe leading part in criticising the gov- ernment had nothing to say at that imc. If they said anything it was such a still sniall voice that uj person ever heard it or ever saw it. Following the drifting in the south country this spring tho need 'or irrigation became more apparent. It was then suggested that the pro- government change the NOfi f HEprJ ;IDEA OF IRRiGAT ION (EdlilOJiton Bulletin.)

The Dominion govern- ment evidently: Intends to; use its able effort should be made to extend it; but there should be no misunder- standing either as to the cost, or as to the number of people and acreage of land affocted. No matter how good anything may be, it is always possible to pay more for it than it Is worth. In place the residents ot certain townships In an area north of Uie-cily ot Lethhridge. petitioned, the provincial leglslalure'-for'. author- ity to form an irrigation' district, with corporate powers to hiako ar- rangements with the Dominion're- gardlng the use of water, and to meet costs by borrowing money debenture and levying; taxation to pay interest. .was passed. passing ...the' legislation the province had. discharged its "full responsibility in the matter. The next step was to raise money- by sale ot the. debentures. It was found.that the debentures would not sell at a'.suitable, without a lupppr'tlng guarantee.by.the provlnca )r tie' Thar 'rb.onilnlbn guarantee .that :the province should take the responsibil- ity.

The Bulletin argues that hecausa the Dominion government controls the ater rights of tha province, as It docs, by the way in every province; also because it at one time owned the lands that are to be benefited by rrigation, therefore Us duty la to give the financial support neoded for the enterprise. It denies that tho pro- vincial government has any responsi- bility in the matter nt all. Tho Bulle- tin article JirisUos with mis-statement ot facts of which not the least glaring is that the Dominion authorities are seeking to convey the impression that tho whole south country can he in- sured against crop failure by Irriga- tion, p When the Dulletin implies that there is something wrong because tho Dominion government controls the water rights 'of the province, it Is displaying an ignorance of facts and conditions that Its ago and experience should save It from. Every Alberta waterway Is either.Interprovinclal or international. To suggest that power over water rights within Iho provlnco should te relegated lo provincial au- thorities Is the veriest nonsense, in- viting, as it would, complications of a most serious sort interprovincial and inlcrnallonal.

The Stewart government was wrong in its Irrigation pulley, but it is right In refusing to use the order in council to 'obligate tbe province lo a large sum of money In furthering a policy entirely different from that adopted by. ihe legislature last session.

Clip Nearly All Gone Forward Cars Sell at 52 Cents Though the market for wool is not very well established as yet, the Southern Alberta wool Growers' as- sociation has sold two more carloads at a straight average price cf 53 cents per pound, constituting the best sale- yet made ot any ot this year's clip. Little of tho clip has been sold as yet however. So far this year the association has shipped GS carloads. A few scattered small shipments are still to como in to tho warehouse for shipment, and when the clip is all sent forward the associp.tion wiU'have shipped about 65 cars. As the average carload contains more than pounds, there have been shipped cooperatively to Uio Canadian Cooperative Wool Growers, Ltd., ut Toronto, over pounds from this one centred In addition there has been consider- able wool handled privately, so that the shipments will probably total around one and three-quarler million pou'nijE. or about the same amount as was shipped in 1919.' N. T, MacLeod, manager of the as- soi'ialion states that the grade sheets are beginning lo come back from the Toronto warehouse. This year field jraOing, which lias been done for four or five years past, was dispensed with, and the grading Is all being done in the warehouse at Toronto. In this way less'varlstlon in the grades is secured am! all wool of one grade con ba Kept together so that it can he shown ihe buyer to belter 'advantage: Mr. MacLeod fitates that he hopes to clean up the shipping of tho 1920 clip by the end of. next week.
