Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 30, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta JfctaH (VOLUME X. LETHBR1DGE. ALBERTA, THURSDAY, AUGUST 30, 1917 NUMBER 221 This Is Opinion of Big Stock Dealer, Who Is Visiting City WOULD BE ERROR TO FIX THE PRICES "Jus* tho minute you begin to legislate prices downwards to decrease the cost of living, production �will fall off." Thiit was tho ouinion expressed to tho Herald today by W. IT. Faros, of Gordon, IronHiile.4 and Faros, prominent Winnipeg packers, who is in the city today. jlr. Pares said he did not know what to make of the statement of Food Controller Htitma yesterday that a big doorcase (n the price of beef might be expectort before Christmas. Ho intimated that it would be a bad tiling for Western Canada whero people have been buying breeding stock at high price* in order to increase the amount of beef produced. And tlioy arc producing. Mr. Fares declares that ho | had not believed it was possible for the farmers and'ranchers of the prairies to keep audi a continual supply 1 of beef cattle going into the various stockyards of the wost. More farmers are raising cattlo.in western Canada today than ever before. Legislating prices for a few commodities is a serious thing, thinks Mr. Faros. "Who shall say what tho farmer should bo paid for his wheat? Suppose they set tho price at $i.(!5. How much is $1.G5 worth? How-much will It buy? What is its relative value as compared with other commodities? That's tho point where trouble arises. The farmer is paying $4 a day for labor as against $2-a fow years ago. Everything eiso is up in proportion. And the price of livestock has a very close relation to the prlco of grain. Certainly It will roqulro a great deal of tact and understanding to ioglnlato the prices of what tho farmer has to soil bo that lie will fool satisfied to keep his production up to tho top notch," * Speaking of tho bacon situation Mr. Fares Is of tho opinion that the prlco will remain high. The IT. S. government is buying enormous quantities for its army, and with tho high prices of grain the price of bacon cannot help but bo highs Mr. Fares declares that boot even at its present prico is tho cheapest food commodity on tho mar ket today., FALL OF TRIESTE 18 NEAR Washington, Aug. 2D.-That tho fall of Trieste before tho Italian advanco is threatened, is tho encouraging hews received by the Italian embassy in its ,. dally comnfunlcation from /?

"It is impossible to be too sanguine about the Dominion's future develop-ment," he declared, stepping off the boat at Liverpool at the conclusion of his term of office aa governor-general ot Canada. . . . Canada one day will be the dominant factor In the empire." Next day in London the king conferred on him the K.CIB. Earl Orey delivered ' a etriktng speech on Canada four days afterward. His references at that same time to Quebec are especially interesting a| the present time. "The naval program of the Dominion may be possibly objected to by some in Quebec and per*, haps other provinces are opposed to participation in the naval defense of the empire. For the moment that is true, but I honestly believe that it Is tor the moment only. It is my conviction that the reluctance of the French-descended citizens of Quebec is due, not to any lack of appreciation of the -requirements of the empire. To exaggerate its omnipotence and then to tell them the empire- requires assistance seemsto them absurd. Once let them grasp the true facts of the situation and I am confident they will prove as ready to do their duty to the flag: as in the days of Montcalm or on the fields of Chateauguay. From self-interest, there are more-than the hak>, tants of Quebec who stand to gala from the naval supremacy of the empire. - A Sincere Fr/snd Toronto, Aug. 29.-The late Karl Grey had a personality ot his own, said Sir John Hendrie, lieutenant-governor, this afternoon on being informed on the death ot Canada's former governor-general.
