Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 4, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbridge Daily Herald, Friday, February Page 0 THE GERMAN-AMERICAN TARIFF IS FIXED the United States to the German cus- toms territory at the tariff rates ol the existing commercial treaties. This authorisation will remain in force so long as the Unit-oil States does not subject the products of the German Empire and those countries and ter- ritories united with it in customs ro- tations to highi-r duties than are con- tained in Section 1 of the American tariff law of August 5, 1909. The bill further sots forth the con- ditions under which the Bundesrath condition would arise if the United States through legislation adopted or by treaties with a third country or otherwise should introduce changes exchange of goods the.German Empire and the United States to the disadvantage of Ger- many. MYSTERY IS CLEARED UP Berlin, Feb. was officially an-1 nounced today that the tariff negotia- tions had made such progress that a bill for the regulation of trade rela- tions between Germany and the Unit- ed States had been passed already by the federal council and would be in- troduced 'in the Reichstag this after- noon. Assuming that the measure it sanctioned by the council will be ad- opted by the legislative body it may be regarded as certain that Ger- many's general tariff will not be ap- plied to American imports after Feb. 7th as would have been the case had the diplomatic exchanges failed. The measure for the ratification of the German-American tariff agree- ment was laid before the Reichstag this afternoon. The principal para- graph reads: "The Bundesrath is au- thorized to admit to a reasonable' April 22 ami May 2, 1907. A seconditeruoon. No inquest will now be held.

"We build the local and long dis- tance lines and also construct the rur- al lines as fast as the people demand them, and we are building many miles railway bonds of which are guaranteed, additional every year." Wisely enough, Mr. Gushing admits Mr. Gushing attributes the great sue- that tkere wil1 bc a Complete revolu- cess of the Alberta telephone of the systera before his ership will be adopted, but under the present system of party divisions he does not believe that practicable. He believes, however, in securing a large measure of control over freight rates, expenditures and capitalization of the cess of the Alberta telephone system to the fact that the-telephone is these lines be "means of communication be- the towns and cities and be- iOUt. tween tween the farms of the country, and the people oi' his province are appre- ciating this fact more every day. fn addAUon to getting more miles of. tele- phone line for the money than any other company In Cauada, Mr. Gushing claims that they provide the service cheaper thaii any other place. In Cal- gary, for instance, the business tele- phone costs the same as in Regina, and it provides access to about twice as many connections. The residence telephone in Calgary costs only a month, as against in Regina, Mr. Cushing points out, however, that this is out of proportipn. He believes there should be a greater difference between Provincial Finances According to Mr. Cushing's story, Alberta has not yet faced the neces- sity of reducing school grants and grants to agricultural societies of de- pleted incomes, as the government of Saskatchewan has long 'ago reached that stage it was naturally a matter of. some comment between Mr- Gushing and his interviewer. The revenues of i the province; he said, are quite ade- quate for all ordinary purposes, and up to the present Alberta has not found it necessary to borrow any money. There are, however, certain public works of a more or less permanent nature which it is proposed to charge up to capital account and to secure the mon- Artistic and Commercial Printers- SHEPARD BLK.

When sick folks down there want to get well, they send to Canada for Gin Pills. At least, that is the way Mr. H. S.Ball, of Oxford, Ohio, was cured of a bad case of Kidney Disease. Mr. Ball took the usual remedies pres- cribed by the doctors, and wore plasters, and was rubbed with In a letter to his in Canada, Mr. Ball wrote of ills serious condition His daughter immediately sent him two boxes of Gin Pills, which did him so much good that be knew be had found the right remedy at hst.

The farmers will operate the plant but the government will own it. It is also to be agreed that the farmers shall pro- vide a certain quantities of hogs at a set price every year, and any above that number must not be sold to other pork packing establishments until the government plnnf'has been offered the chance to purchase them at the figure fixed.
