Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 22, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta AUGUST THAT SdNINLAW OF PAS TUB OAflLT PAGE Tfffifel By Wellington HIGH CAPITAL financial 1 Canadian credit has been seriously damaged abroad by the blindness and rapacity of the public ownership ad vocates who see no sanctity in an agreement and have no respect for rights ot invested The Meck projects and the conflacatory legislation arising ont of them may yet cause the withdrawal of British from Canada to such an extent as to cripple industry The Financial Post has given warn ing repeatedly if tho dangprons tendency to override to nullify to to to make capital a foot ball for the i allowed further the results will he ser ious Evidences of the un easiness among investors in Great Britain havo been given but a de npatch in the Toronto Globe of shows how widespread this feeling of has The which is shows that British capital has beea suffi ciently alarmed to confront the Cana dian cabinet ministers now in England vauiliwv squarely with the issue ami to de mand positive The it is will be that the ministers will realize the gravity of the situa tion and return to Canada determined to check what the Globe correspon dent has called the Bolshevik ten dency Canadian ministers to Great Britain and their conferences with British in ivestors regarding the governments plans for railway nationalization and a postwar influx of British capital to have disclosed acertain feel of uneasiness there as to a pos Wlble Bolshevik tendency in Security for private contracts and in vestments in Canada against any fed eral or provincial governmental public Ownership or expropriation onslaught Bias been put up to the Canadian ministers by the British whose fears seem to have been arous by the railway nationalization pro Imosals in the special fixation and the other evidences of expropriating for the peoplo the jrults of private This uneasiness ot capital as to fur ther investment in Canada be due only to an unjustified ecare over newspaper reports of public ownership proposals in connec tion with railway and power compan but it is nevertheless a fac tor in the solution of Canadas present and future financial and during their rtay in London the Can adian wore oblige to give public reassurance that Canada would keep faith wim those who invested their money Arthur Melg while in gave A positive declaration on behalf of tlis govern ment iihfit allow no cofaorlptfori of legitimate inveat ASuspected Kls lielngU6Jnied that can hardly carry its intended reassuring influence so long asa certain by the Borden government in March of jlast is not Tills order which nas hitherto appar ently escaped notice or comment in gives suthority to gov ernment to adopt the most extreme in so far as tho arbi trary expropriation of private property compensation is British and apparently know of On March whiles Rob ert Rogers was still a foremost mem ber of the and when a general election was seen to io im an orderincouncil was pass under authority of the War Meah uros amending the Expropriation Act It was recited that the govern ment had power tirteclaro that for reasons of war could take over any real or or any lands contract of description Limit to The mere declaration of the govern ment that tho state required tho pro perty in question was declared to be all that was necessary to proving I no right of Then follows this significant Clause In determining or assessing the compensation for the taking ot such land and personal property as heie inbefore mentioned or no allowance of any percentage or bonus whether or not customary or usually allowed in shajl be made to compensate for or to represent elements of loss or whether in proof or la addition to the actual value of the property to the persons interested there in at the time of the vesting thereof in his Majesty if by the order of the GovernorinCouncil authorizing the taking it be declared that the compensation which may oe allowed for the premises taken or any part thereof shall not exceed an amount thereby be a nominal then the right to compensation of the persons interest ed in the premises shall be accordingly limited so that the compensation re shall not exceed tUo amount thus Extreme Power In other the government took authority to override the essen tial provisions of the Expropriation V nnri ft THE CHAMP REPLIES Hare been received for ibe following numbers and are waiting to be called tial provisions of the Expropriation Actas passed and de that it expropriate pri vate property virtually without contl even though contract rights and property were The longestablished function of the Ex chequer In determining Just compensation to private parties for property expropriated by the Crown was deliberately It was made and it is still for for the government to de clare that it is in the interest of the state to take over tlie whole of bir Joseph Flavelles bacon industry and award him therefore only the nominal sum of one The possibility of such a weapon in the hands of unscrupulous government during elec tion time in forcing a campaign con tribution from any larga corporation may be It is possible that the elimination of Rogers from the cabinet and the formation of a Union government prevented a wider exer cise of the power taken than was ac tually attempted to be It may be noted that the Canadian Northern expropriation proposals fol lowed soon although in this case the restricted amount to was referred to parliament for ratifi and subsequently the arbitra tion court was asked to fix a valua which valuation will doubtless be Repeal Is la view of the existence of this the necessity for which has never been it is not to toe wondered at that British and American investors under all the
