Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta TiMOday, Fobniorr UTHMIDQI MtRALD-tt NAPOLEONIC PAPERS FILED IN ARCHIVES Remains following explosion OTTAWA (CP) A cloak- and-dagger story of Napoleon Bonaparte's preparations for his ill-fated 1812 inarch on Russia has been lodged in the National Archives of Canada by the acquisition of 29 hand- written letters. The letters from Napoleon's confidential secretary, Hugues Maret, Due de Bassano, to the French ambassador in Poland, were presented to the archives Friday by Montreal collector Casimir G. Stanczykowski, who said he acquired them individually over a period of years. The first, dated Dec. 31, 1811, says arms and provisions, including Hungarian wine, should be assembled in various places in Poland. Towards the end of January in 1812, Napoleon in- structed the ambassador, the Baron Bignon, to be prepared to march with him. By the end of May, 1812, Na- poleon asked for men who knew the terrain and resources of Lithuania and the Ukraine to meet him. A month later, Napoleon suggested the Polish Diet be called into session secretly. Finally in the corres- pondence, on June 17, 1812. Napoleon proposed a national uprising in Poland against Quebec City police examine a car which was damaged Monday by an explosion. One man was killed and two were injured In the blast. Police believe Appears United States preparing to go ahead with Garrison project WASHINGTON (CP) The United States is preparing to tell Canada that it plans to continue its current work on the controversial Garrison irrigation project in North Dakota, but will consult with Ottawa about any future expansion which may affect rivers flowing into Manitoba. This disclosure of the American position came this week from a variety of informants in the U S. government and Congress. However, all stressed that the official note to be delivered to the Canadian government by the state department is still being drafted and its exact wording has not yet been determined. Canada asked the United States last October to halt all further work on the Garrison project until it is assured that Canadian rights will be pro- tected under the Boundary Waters Treaty of 1909. It said the project, as envisaged, would harm the quality of water flowing into the Red and Souris rivers of Manitoba. The U.S. reply to Ottawa's demand is expected to be delivered within a week or so. The state and interior departments are reported to be still consulting about some minor points on wording. A further indication that Canada has not succeeded in stopping the project altogether came from congressional sources who said the powerful White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has agreed to include funds for Garrison in the 1974-75 federal budget. PRESSURE IMPOSED One congressional aide, who asked not to be named, said the budget office bowed to pressure from North Dakota's influential congressional delegation to continue allocating money for the project, but the amount would be substantially less than the delegation wanted. The OMB has been lukewarm to the Garrison scheme for some time because it doubted that the benefits justified the cost. But the project has the ardent support of Senator Milton Young of North Dakota, senior Republican member on the budget-setting Senate appropriations committee, who is de- termined to press on with Garrison during a year in which be is up for reelection. Although there was no con- firmation from UK OMB, a congressional source said next year's budget is expected to include about llO-million in appropriations for Garrison. That figure would represent about one-half the current fiscal year's allocation and only about one-third of the amount considered necessary to keep the project moving at its current pace. The U.S., hi its reply to Ot- tawa's demand for a temporary halt to work on the Garrison project, is expected to contend that portions under construction now will have no effect on the quality of water flowing into Canada and there is therefore no reason to stop the work. The U.S. is likely to offer full consultation with Canada before proceeding with portions of the project that might damage Canadian interests, informants said. Canadians have argued that although current work does not directly affect Canada, the work makes little practical sense unless the entire scheme is carried through to completion. Ottawa fears that by going ahead now, the U.S. will find itself too heavily committed to back away from completition of the project at some future date. About million has already been spent on the project, which is designed to provide irrigation water eventually for some North Dakota through a system of canals, reservoirs and drains. If the project is ever com- pleted as planned, most of the water would drain off into the Souris and Red rivers, raising the mineral content of the rivers sharply as they flow toward Manitoba. Bell productivity 'double that of economy as whole9 By PETER LLOYD OTTAWA (CP) The rosy picture of a burgeoning econ- omy and a bustling Bell Canada operation came under scrutiny Monday as the Canadian Transport Commission (CTC) began hearings on the company's bid for increased rates. In one report, Toronto economist W. Allan Beckett predicts demand for gross new capital formation during the next eight years "will reach the staggering sum of billion." Robert Olley, a University of Saskatchewan economist, told the hearing Bell's productivity gains during the past two years are about doable those of the economy as a whole. Both men were answering questions stemming from re- ports they prepared for Bell, seeking its fifth rate increase since. 1969. Leading, the questioning were lawyers Dan Burtnick and Ross Goodwin, representing the Ontario and Quebec governments respectively. The proposed rate increases would affect about 4.3 million Ontario, Quebec and the Northwest Territories subscribers and add about 10 cents to monthly home telephone bills. Under questioning, Mr. Beckett admitted that his view of the immediate economic future probably is considered optimistic by most economists. However, be feds it would stand the test of time, even in toe face of the "so- called energy crisis." NEEDS INVESTMENT In its application, Bell says it needs increased rates to add about million to its 1974 revenues, allowing it to attract needed in vestment of about million to maintain and expand service. Mr. Olley said Bell's productivity improvement shows it has made very substantial contribution to rising real standards of living and absorbed a large part of rising dollars costs... without proportional price increases." A decision is also expected today on whether BeflTs sub- sidiary, Northern Electric, should be included in studying over-all company operations. Last month, the Ontario and Quebec governments said Bell-Northern relations should be examined to ensure Bell subscribers are not subsidizing Northern. Bell lawyers argue that the two companies are separate and the commission has no ju- risdiction over Northern, which manufactures communication equipment components at its plants in Ontario and Quebec. Two groups walked out of Monday's hearings saying are nothing but a farce for those without power and financial resources. Vaughn Dowie of the Greater Montreal Anti- Poverty Co-ordinating Committee led his group put of the hearing after saying "the normal channels don't work." Operation Family Rights of Toronto joined the walkout after a spokesman said poor people have no power in the deliberations. Bell's application says the company needs to establish an 8.6 per cent rate of return on investment to attract investors. Under its proposal, the cost of local coin box calls would go to 2P cents from 10 cents and a new 25-cent charge would be mad for operator assistance on numbers listed in the directory, except when the calls were made by handicapped persons or from call boxes. The rate request has met with an unprecedented 113 official interventions by groups or individuals wishing to oppose the proposal during the commission bearings. Russia, and it was five days later that he declared war on Russia. Mr. Stanczykowski said he believed the letters contained facts not known to history, particularly the way in which a Polish uprising was prompted to trigger Napoleon's attack on Russia. CANADA GOOD Mr. Stanczykowski who is president and general manager of Chateau Broadcasting Ltd., owners and operators of radio station CFMB in Montreal, said he was giving the papers to the archives because, since he emigrated to Canada 26 years ago, "Canada has been good to me." He hoped the gift would encourage others to donate historic records to the archives, believing there may be many documents in Canada owned by immigrants from Europe. He also said he hoped Ottawa would soon establish an ethnic museum and research centre. In fact, he said in an interview, he has had plans drawn up for such a museum. The Napoleonic papers were acquired mainly from the families of the people involved in the corres- pondence, Mr. Stanczykow- ski said. it took place in connection with warring motorcycle gangs. Book publishers seek paper export controls TORONTO (CP) The Globe and Mail says the Independent Publishers Association has asked the federal government to impose immediate controls on all exports of paper and to apply price controls within 90 days if paper companies do not withdraw recent price in- creases. The association requests were made in an unpublished brief to Allastair Gillespie, minister of industry, trade and commerce, says the newspaper in an article from Ottawa. The association brief says that a scarcity of paper and a sharp rise in prices resulted from increased paper exports to the United States, The Globe and Mail says. The association, representing 62 Canadian- owned publishers of English- language books, says the price of fine paper used in book publishing increased about 35 per cent last year and more increases are pending, reports the newspaper. It quotes the brief as saying "irreparable harm will be done to Canadian writing and Canadian publishing" if the government does not step in. CUT BOOK OUTPUT Ann West, president of Sono Nis Press, is quoted in an interview from Delta, B.C., as saying her firm published only five books last its 1972 of the paper shortage. Also her firm was printing only 500 copies of each title rather than a normal run of 000, Miss West told The Globe and Mail. Robert M. Schmon, the new president of the Canadian Pulp and Paper Association, said in a separate interview that newsprint recently increased by about a ton to and that this was a real shock to publishers. "It would have been prefer- able to have this happen gradually over the last two years but it did said Mr. Schmon, who also is president of the Ontario Paper Co. Ltd. of Thorold, Ont. He added that consumption of newsprint in the United States may ease slightly this year but, he added "there are other places in the world to take up the slack. House warranty forecast HALIFAX (CP) Plans for national house warranty program to protect consu Potentially usable fish tossed away as 'garbage9 MONTREAL (CP) About 400 million pounds of "garbage" is tossed overboard by Canadian fishermen off the East Coast every year. The trouble is that most of the so-called garbage is fish that might be usable. This is one of the problems scheduled for discussion at a three-day government- industry conference on Atlantic fisheries, which begins today. Fisheries expert L. Hinds of Ottawa is to deliver a paper on utilization of the now- discarded fish, in which he says the handling of these discarded species most be overhauled if this country is to sustain a reasonable rate of growth in fish production. "Our established fisheries will have to make radical changes in fishing method's and strategies, modify or construct vessels to handle discards, modify shore facilities to process the new resource and win consumer acceptance of new fishery Mr. Hinds said in a summary, released Monday night. Many of today's 11 papers deal with this question: bow do you sell stuff that fishermen now consider too poor to hold on to? More than 200 delegates from the federal government, the five eastern provinces, the United States and industry will spend Wednesday in workshops discussing the proposals in the from which a series of rec- ommendations are expected Thursday. C. M. Bladcwood of the fish- eries inspection branch in Ot- tawa says in his paper that mechanization of fish-process- ing plants may play a signifi- cant role in utilization of trash one obstacle facing Canadian production of trash species is that there may be trouble finding a domestic market for some. Capelin, a relatively unknown species, is already the subject of a federal marketing campaign aimed at reducing the enormous flow of imported sardines. Mr. Cknston says another species with good potential is the queen crab, which Atlantic fishermen previously treated as a nuisance. were announced here Monday by Urban Affairs Minister Ron Basford. First step will be appointment of an interim committee to organize a national home warranty council to operate warranty program, Mr. Basford said in a speech to the annual meeting of the Housing and Urban Development Association of Canada. The interim committee will start work in March. Mr. Basford said the National Building Code is not sufficient to provide complete consumer protection. The code ensured bouses were built to minimum health and safety standards. But each house should be built to the "level of quality and performance that the builders and the purchaser have agreed on at the time the boose is Mr. Basford said. "A warranty would then provide an obligation that the house has been built as agreed and that the builder will remedy defects arising from failure to nerform to that level." He suggested that neither the federal nor provincial "governments or the builders acting alone could establish an adequate warranty program. The best solution would be an independent national council including builders, consumers and governments. These groups working together could draft the best possible plan for borne purchasers. CAREER However, the 701 processing plants on the East Coast are not operating at capacity. MAY FORCE CHANCE Mr. Blackwood says increasing prices for conventional fish products, coupled with rising demand, may force the industry to start using species now dis- carded.
