Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 29, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE EIGHT 1 HE LETHDRIDGE DAILY HERALD WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 29, 101 RE RULE ON CNR. BILL PASSED Twenty Minute Limit on Speakers in House-Some Were Given "Overtime" Ottawa. Anp. 2S.-There - were no preliminaries in the Common" tills afternoon. As soon as the speaker took the chair, the house went into committee on the Canadian Northern bill. Sir Thomas White then moved the formal closure motion malslne the clauses o� the hill the first oriler of business and providing that they should ho disposed of before the adjournment of the house. The opposition demanded a vote with the result that the closure motion .fas adopted on a division of .".L" to -f', a government majority of -7. .7. G. Turriff, voted with the government. Dr. Michael Clark who voted with the government yesterday, was not in the house. The ' dehato was then resumed. There is a 20 niinutei time limit on the speakers, and the proceedings must terminate by two o'clock on Wednesday morn inf. Hon. Jacques iiuremi. who was the first speaker, said that no man could conscientiously support the bill in view of the paucity of information Riven to the house. That, he said, was his reason for opposing the bill. Parliament had not been enlightened as :o the amount of obligations the country would he called upon to assume. Mr*�ure:�u held that the capital stock 3f the (" N. H. is watered, the stock possessi no real value. At twenty-six minutes to four aty Speaker Hainville told Mr. 3au his time was up. "I started at twenty minutes three," Mr. Dure-.iu protested. Mr. Hainville allowed Mr. Bureau two minutes, "overtime" and the member for Three Rivers concluded before the extra minutes had elapsed. .1. C. Ethier of Two Mountains, followed, speaking as Mr. Bureau had done, in French. He declared that since Sir Robert Borden had returned from England, he had deliberately undertaken to wrest every vestige of justice from the administration of affairs in Can^ ad a. Mr. Ethier said that the government had been warned in regard to this bill by a group of the most prominent financial men in Montreal, the majority of its friends. There was opposition to the bill from Toronto's financial men also. Mr. Ethier also objected to the legislation on the score that it breaks the contract made In 1014 under which the C. N. H. would become the property of the government in the case- of default. Mr. Ethier maintained that the bill would cost Quebec.province alone $1(>0,iiho,-000. AV. E. Knowles of Moose Jaw. who had the next 20 minutes, said that the autocratic action of the minister of finance, would shut oft r>0 members from reasonable discussion ot the The more you know about coffee--and the more particular you are about aroma and flavour -the more you will appreciate "SEAL BRAND" COFFEE. Once you have tried it, your choice will always be Chase & Sanborn's "SEAL BRAND" COFFEE, la }i, 1 and J pound tins. Whole-- ground-pulverized- (inc ground for Percolators. Never sold in bulk. ia� CHASE & SANBORN, MONTREAL. Dep- j Hur- i I past i bill. The only reasonable explanation of the matter, he said. was. that the minister feared open discussion. Ii was particularly unfortunate that t^ir Thomas lu'd done this because in the public mind he was linked up closely with Sir William Mackenzie. It was a matter of public opinion, lie said, that the minister 'of'finance had been nominated by Sir William Mackenzie. Sir liobert Borden rose to say that there was absolutely no truth in the (statement'. Mr. Knowles said he accepted the premier's statement, but he was speaking of public dpinion. Mr. Knowles objected to the appointmeut of Sir William Meredith as government arbitrator. It was well known he s.iid. that although Sir William Meredith is judge he is closely associated with tit" Conservative government of Ontario and drafts some of their legislation. Mr. Knowles said that the way to make railways pay is to adopt the policy which will encourage the production of wheat in western Canada. If the minister had kept the ratio of increased production in the west up to the level of the increase under the Laurier policy there would be plenty of business for the railways. -.1. li. Turriff, said under ordinary conditions he would have favored the C. N". R. gohig into i^.o hands of a receiver. But under present conditions he doubled if this was advisable. There wore faults in the bill, he said, but on the whole the proposal was a reasonable one. I STATES REPLY TO POPE'S PEACE NOTE Believed it Failed to Find Any Ground on Which To Discuss Peace I Washington. Aug. 2?.-The reply | by the I'nited States 'government to i Pope Benedict's peace proposals has I gone forward. -It is understood it will ! be transmitted through the British foreign office .through which the pope's communication came. In the best informed quarters, it Is believed the reply, while responding to the Pontiff's proposal with the delicacy and respect which the latter commands, does not find that there is any ground on which to proceed to advise discussion of peace in the absence of a commissioner as to her terms. It was made known officially that the reply was dispatched last night. WOMEN WANT CONSCRIPTION Clean to handle. Sold by all Drug, gists, Groccra and General Store* Portage la Prairie, Man., Aug. 27.- Resolutions stating that conscription of men and resources must be immediately adopted and enforced, and that a national non-partisan government must be established for the vigorous prosecution of the war, were carried unanimously tonight at a mass meeting arranged by the local council of women. oiiiiiQi�ii>siiiii>r;iiiiii.i THESE little rosy-cheeked sunshine tots have sunshine iii their hearts for Dominion Toasted Corn Flakes.

Aug. 'JS.-The main thing of note at the council meeting on Monday was the scarcity of accounts, there only being two to worry with, totalling 1S.50 altogether. Judging by the feeling evident at the meeting we are likely to have the bridge paved with concrete blocks in the near future, as a very satisfactory report had been received in reply to inquiries made by the secretary. The question of altering the present mode of getting in tho taxes was i up for discussion. It is proposed that two discounts be offered instead of one as at present. The matter was considered food for further thought and will come up later. The question of cement sidewalk from the opera house and along the side of Fraser-McRobert's-store was decided and the council was in favor ! of the proposition. The town will pay-half and the property owners half. It j was also decjded to put cement crossings across Main street. Representatives from St. John's church were present to try and adjust the question of the arrears of taxes on the church property. There is' a complication over a mistake in the title held by the church and the present plan of town. The church want to Bet-tie- with the town for $200, but as the arrears claimed by the town amount to over SS0O the town is appealing to the moral obligation of the church, although legally they feel they could not force them to pay a cent. A conference to arrive at- a decision will be held with the rector, Rev. A. \V. Mac-Michael, as soon as he returns from a short trip. The store belonging to Chas. Boucher at Pineher Station, was totally destroyed by fire.on Wednesday of last week. As far as can be learned the cause is unknown. Mr. Boucher was alone in the house,- which is connected with the store, at the time, and as it was late in the night he had a narrow escape, having to vacate without waiting for such trivial things as clothes. The safe was open and all the books and papers were destroyed. Chicago, Aug. 28.-The most daring and murderous of a long series of payroll robberies was perpetrated here at noon today in tho presence of scores of factory workers and others. Louis Osenberg, -'4 years old and Barton Allen, employees of the Brinks Bxpress company, who were bringing I'.UUO for the payroll of Winslow Brothers company, were shot and killed. The robbers, five in number, escaped with tho money in an automobile. Osenberg and Allen, �vho with "Kit" Lewis, brought the money in an automobile were killed when they reached for their weapons. Lewis with two pistols pointed at his head, was subdued, while one 'of the bandits bUjccI the sat 'iel containing tho money from -'.ien's lifeless hand. Other Bhots were fired to intimidate the. crowd. Three' shots were fired after the rebbers after thoy sped away but without effect so far as could be seen.
