Ottawa, Jan. 23.-Mr. Herron of Alberta, offered resolution In the llousa to-day declaring that It Is important for tho rapid neltlement of tho North-Wesl that lumber should be supplied to settlers at �n low a rate as possible; that it Is claimed an unlawful combine exists among tho manufacturers and dcaVro for the purpose of unduly enhancing the price of lumber to tho consumer and therefore a select committee of nine should bo appointed for the purpose of enpjiring into the matter. In support of his resolution Mr. Her  ron declared that there was nothing .as necessary to the new weUter as lumber at a reasonable rate. At the present time the prices of lumber arc unreasonably high. It is believed that this is due to tbo operations of a combine which should bo deaJtwlth under the net provided for that purpose.
