Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 22, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, AUGUST 22, 1918 THAT SON-IN-LAW OF PA'S PAGE THREli By Wellington TM SPR^2,\ r DISTURB VA. BUT rt^t- HAVfe r ASK i-^jjH our ^ER' PoCkEtS-UXSKIN' FE UNEASINESS OF BRITISH CAPITAL -:- 3 govern-iJidht ;thRt '-tlaaada would allow no . cohsorlptronot legitimate investment."' , ::. . I- . � AiSutpected Order. I(;'is belneipointod oufTiowever, that this idecjaration can hfirdiy carry its Intarided raaasurJnR influence so long as' a certain "o'rder-ln-cbuncil," passed liy the Borden government In Marcli of I'Hast year, is no* rosimded, Tais order-^In-couucil, which nas hitherto appar- 1* REPI.IB8 HaTS been received for ibs  dficlaro that for reasons of war it could take over any property, real or personal., or .any factory, mills, machinery, plant, lands, buildings, contract rights, etc., of acy description -whatsoever. Limit to Compensation. Tlio mere declaration of the govcrn-lucut that tho stale required tlio pi-o-perty in uuestion was declared to bo all that was necessary to proving tho right of expropriation. Then follows this significant clause: "In determining or assessing the compensation for (he taking ot sncli land and personal pi'oporly as hereinbefore mentioned or desci-ibed, no allowance ot any percentage or bonus, whether or not customary or usually allowed in expropriation, shajl be made to co;npensato for or to represent elements o� value, loss or damage, whether in proof- or not. In. addition to tho actuil valjle ot the property taken, to tho peraous interested therein at the time o� the vesting thereof in his Majesty, and, moreover, it by the order of the Governor-in-Councii authorizing the taking it bo declared that the compensation which may he allowed for the premises taken or any part thereof shall not exceed nn amount thereby specified (which may bo a nominal sum), then'the right to compensation ot tho persons interested in the premises shall bo accordingly limited so that the compensation recoverable shall not~ exceed tho amount thus apecified." Extreme Poyver Taken. In other words, tho government took authority to override tiie essential provisions ot tho Expropriation Act as passed by. parllahient, and declared that it could, expropriate private property virtually without coni^^l pensatiou, oven though contract rights' and property loss" were proven. The iong-esttibiished function ot tho Exchequer Court. In determining compensntion to private parties for property expropriated by the Crown was deliberately abolished. It was made possible, and it is still po.'isible, for instance, tor the government to declare that it is in the^ Interest ot the state to take over th"e whole of Sir Joseph Flavelle's hacon industry and award him therefore only the nominal sum ot one dollar. The poasibllity oC such a weapon in the hands of ^an unscrupulous government during election time in forcing a campaign contribution -from any large corporation may be Imagined. It Is possible that the elipiination of Mr. Rogers from the cabinet and the formation of a Union government prevented a wider exercise of the power taken than was ao-tiiaily attempted to bo.ei^prcisod It may -be noted that tiio Canadian Northern expropriation proposals followed soon afterwards, although in this case the restricted amount to bo.paid was referred to parliament for ratification, and subsequently the arbitration court was asked to fix a valuation, which valuation will doubtless be paid. Repeal Is Aiked, In view of the continuad,eaistence of this order-;ln-council, tiie'necosBity .for which has never been explained, it is consequently, perhaps, not to te Wondered at that British and American Investors are. under all the circumstances, asking for Its repeal bplore entrustin'k their capital to the mercy and,good totth ot tho Canadian govern' inent., � .  > > ? ? ? ? adl03 Orcliostra; Glenn Wells Com-pny and tho Kaffir Boys Choir. What a galaxy of lecturers came. Think of it. There were Capt. Woods Briggs, Dr. Salem Bland. Sgt. Arthur Gibbons, .Tulius Ceasar Nayphe, Dr. Y. MinakuchI and J. C. Ilerbsman, ,T. II. Balmor, Leila M. Bloomllcld. They gave of their wisdom, their humor, their learning, their e.xperIonces and of their hearts. Everyone ot them was saturated with patriotism. Blairmore is tho better of their coming and has signed up for another year. A couple'of families of Coleman did the right thing .this year. They came down with their tents and camped beside the big Chautauqua tent, all attended tlie sessions during the week. They consider that they had a splendid holiday time. W'e agree with them. Dr. Y. Minakuchi addressed the congregation of the Union church on Sunday evening, much to tho edification and delight of tile large audience that was present to hear him. Our Chief of Police had quite an adventure on Saturday evening. .� man somewhat intoxicated was making considerable noise at the oast end of town . The chief proceeded to arrest him, but in the attempt was hit on the head with' the butt of his as aailant's revolver. Tho assailant Js now out on $2000.00 bail. Capt.
