W. Pear- eon to Ottawa, is impossible to ascer lain, but one thing Is certain: thc Lethbridge trio took the capital hy storm, and succeeded in making an im presslcji thai ivil'i be remembered. They went east on business, anil they transacted business. They met and interviewed practically every mem- ber of the Cabinet, leaving a decided imprint on Hie mind of each. Iii describing his trip to the Herald morning, Mayor Hardie, ivlio re- .urnetl last evening, expressed Uis.cfln- 'Idence that the Dominion government fully realizes the importance of the Old 'Man river diversion project. Pre- mier Bordeu Is heartily in accord with the scheme, and assured the delega- tion that provision would be made .In is year's estimates for a complete survey of the districts affected, the reports on Lhle survey to be made public. Senator Louglieed, who was present at the meeting, brought un the legal reefs m the way of the plan in R'way that demonstrated that only by Care- ful procedure would they be avoided. There are Provincial and Northwest Territories' nets in regard, to irriga- tion, an, d these will have to be Invest- igated and amended. As to any immediate relief to tbe unemployment question. Premier Bp.r- den brought out figures which went to show tluit the west 'was incomparably better off tliaii the east in tliis regard. Where thore is ii per cent, of tbe pop- ulation out of work in the west, there is 30 per ccnl, Jn thu east. The Dc- minion government is of thc opinion that the provincial governments will need to care for their own unemploy- ed. .Mr. Pearson of Iron Springs made a decided infgression on the members ot the cabinet, by his riescripUcJ) of the conditions a.a they actually exist in tbe west. The matter of coal, was gone into at length, and Mayor Hardie is of the op- inion that revenue is'tbe government's most pressing need at this time, just as it is the most urgent need of every municipality' and commercial enter- prise, The delegation 'waited upon Premier 13orden, Hon. J. Tloche, minister of the Interior; Hon. Robert Rogers, min- ister of Public Works; Hon. Arthur Meighen, Sollcitor-Oqiieral: Hon. .W, T. While, minister of Finance; Hon. T. W. Crothurs, minister of Lnbor; Hon. J, D. minister of Customs; A. Magrath, chairman of tho Wat- erways Commission; E. P. Drake, aup- of Irrigation, and others. AH were synipathetic with the pro- posals, but an account of (lie immen- sity of the thing, were loathe to make promises, for fear thai they would net be supported by the cabinet. The delegation was received also by George Bury, vice-president of the C.P.R., and one ol1 Lethbridge's best friends. Mr. Uury failed to see how the C.P.R. could get aloug, iE the west did not prosper, and promised his. ev- ery support of thc project, even going so far as to promise that he1 "would personally see that future "develop inenta were brought to the notice1 tbe government. It will undoubtedly fali to the lot ol Ihe Lcthbridge Board of Trade to look into the" legal aspects of the scheme, and to surmount auch other difficul- ties as they may appear, for Mr. Mar- noch is an optimist who does not stop at any obstacle, no matter hoiv largo H may appear. The matter Is not go- ing to drop, but will bo fostered and developed until it fa In such shape that tho government cannot refuse to recognize the demands. The attitude of tho ministers to the Lethbridge del- egation indicates (hat they are open to receive further argument, and that they will do what is possible In be- half ,of 'the big Irrigation project, which 'will solve not only the farmer's but the..unemployed man's problem as well....... this was forthcoming in -large quan- tities, free oi charge.. ____o In Toronto, the mayor visited the are many veterans of the Boer _ following bond houses: Lindsay and arfl showing .to good .advantage in their matching drills.
