Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 10, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta Volume V. Letlibriilge, Alberta. December 10, 1012 FIVE CENTS Number 307 Taft's Cabinet Met to Consider ,it To-day and Will Give An Answer'in a Few Days-Britain Wants it Referred .to the Hague Will the Senate Agree Friendly Negotiations Washington, nee. the formal presentation of Great Britain's against the Panama Canal Bill, Secretary Knox today got down to it careful study of the objections raised by, Sir Edward Grey, in the lengthy note transmitted last night by Ambassador Bryc'e. The British Minister of Foreign Af- fairs, basing his principal objection of the irropGna'i to relieve nil American shipping from paying canal tolls by exempting charges or remit- ting the tolls "paid, contends that sec- tion of.the law is In violation of the Hay-Panncefote treaty, and proposes that if the question ;can be settled In 110 other way, it he submitted to arbU tratlon at the Hague. Minister Grey also touched on the provision against trust-owned ships, and gave notice that if that were to apply to ships cf all nations, Great Uritaiij might desire to supplement her protest further. Now fhat the proposal for arbitra- tion, has. been securely presented, the means by which the question might be presented to the Hague are a centrn of interest. t The existing arbitration treaty between the United Statos and Great, .Britain expires by limitation next'June. If the controversy were to lie delayed until then, there would he no :treaty under .which the dispute be arbitrated." lu any case a special agreement approved 'by the Senate would be required before the dispute could be referred to the Hague and there: is a variance of opinion as to majority of the senate would case to go there. Several senators, among them those considered: the best lawyers in the upper house of Congress, have declar- ed 'that the" United States would sure- ly lose itft'caee at'the Hague. Meanwhile Secretary khox'wlil pre- pare a reply to the British note. It will be of the same, friendly tone as was Minister Grey's communication, entirely lacking any elements of bel- ligerency. Today was a regular Cabinet meet- Ing day, and the subject was up for in- formal discussion by President Taft, Secretary Knox, ami the rest of the President's official family. The outline of this government's re- ply will probablynot be discussed until the President and Secretary Knox Ilrltlsh London, question. _ The Pall Mall Gazette, representing! the Conservatlves.'says: "Sir Edward' Grey's despatch should provide ample Commission Government is Endorsed by Overwhelming Jjiajor- ity No Doubt About it This Time Dooley, Thompson' and McKillop Elected to School Board Iron Works Bylaw Carried have had opportunity to go over the William- son, McCambiy, Levering, Aird and McNabb. grounds for u return to the paths of TO-CARRY OUT suitable to arbitration by ihe Hague tribunal."

The Westminster Gazette, support- ing the Liberal government, declines to helievo tliu prophecy cabled from New Sir Robert Finlay Opened Ar- gument Today in Behalf of Royal Bank London, Rng., Dec. the judicial committee of the privy coun- cil, Chancellor Loreburu pre- Sir Robert Finlay, on behalf of the appellants, Ihe.Royal Hank of Canada, made argument this morning in the case of the Roy- al Bank of Canada and the King and1 the case resulting from the; Alberta and Great Waterways' railroad '.affair, thu (rues- lion-involving the'validity of an act of the legislature of 'Alberta dealing with the matter. Sir K. Finlay op- ened the appeal before the judicial committee of the privy council ami said that the main defence to the claim was that the-- act of IfllO re- quiring payment to the provincial treasurer was ultra vires, hut it was also contended that even if valid it did not, on proper construction, sup- port the plaintiff's claim, because The act was-ultra vires, leg- islation on such matters not coin- ing within any of the clauses of ihe ubjecU assigned by section 92 of the British North America Act to the provinces. I Because it dealt with essen- tial hanking legislation which was assigned exclusively to the Dominion under section 91; and was in con-; diet with the Dominion Hank Act; of 1906, in altering a time deposit j to a demand deposit and in destroy-i ing the effect, of the assignment1! whicli .was a valid security under thej Bank Act, and against conf seated i private property for the raising of! revenue.

Justified in their demand for a board of conciliation, and in the strike which followed Its refusal by the llinister'of Labor, is borne out in the majority report of the board which was later tiro'weeks .ago nlld which, this afternoon brought down its findings. The report which is signed .by Judge McGlbbon, of Brampton, Ont., chairman, and by J.

Bring a police commission into be- ing as soon as possible. Those are some of the matters to which' Ihn new city council for 1913 will- direct their attention, immediate- ly after taking their seats around the aldermaciic board. Mayor-elect Hardie spent part of the morning in the city offices getting a line on his new work, so that he will havn something to tMnk over dur- [1113 his holidays'.

That may or may not be one of the surprises of the election, hut it was one ;ot the outstanding features of the camr poign, and people by now will realize the fact that Lethbridge is a com- mission form of government city, a j single tax city, and a municipal own- ership city. With these tliree ad- vanced ideas of government in actual use, it is conceded that Lethbridge lias something wluch should attract the eyes of the whole North Ameri- can continent where direct legisla- tion is becoming one of the big "is- sues of the day'.
