THE RETURN OF THE NATURAL RESOURCES Tho question of the return of the natural resources to the three prairie provinces has advanced to a stage has hitherto not reached, in the announcement made in the Legis- lature at Edmonton by Hon. C. R. Mitchell that the Government of Al- berta has received definite assurance from the Prime Minister of Canada that he will draft, during the present of the Dominion Parliament, a definite proposal for the restoration of these resources. It is to be trusted that when the matter comes before the Dominion ,Houie that it wjll be approached in an independent spirit so far as regards the claims of the West and those of the East. They should he treated as Independent and separate problems, each viewed on its distinctive merits. The problem of the natural resources as It concerns the West should he solved iu the spirit and on the princi- ple that it is one which concerns the West, and should not be made to hinge on whatever demands are made or any grievances alluded to by the East. Whatever these are, and what- ever justice the other provinces con- sider they are entitled to, should not be made to influence the policy oJ the natural resources in respect to what the demands. Whatever com- pensation the East considers its por- tion it one rwhich the Government should deal with as a distinct matter, without prejudicing the interests of the West. Anything of rival claimn should not be allowed, as it has been too long allowed, to he the rock on whiph a final agreement as to the resources should split. There appears a tendency on the part of certain of the Opposition in the Provincial House to make the question of the natural resources a political opportunity. In this they are not the true friends of the Province. It is idle and useless to delve into past history in respect to the natural refiourcas and to resort to recrimin- ations for past conduct. Such tactics deserve censure. A policy which might have appeared to he the right one ago does not necessarily, in the trend of circumstances, al- ways prove to by the right onq as lirao progresses. There is always the new view point which experience leaches. It is this consideration which tnakes for progress. It remains for the Province to present a united front to respect to the question of the na-1 news found pity to this very much misin- formed gentleman in regard to the status ot Canada in relation to Great Britain and ill respect to her place in the Commonwealth of British nations known aa the British Empire. At the same time, in view of this ignorance, it is a pity that there are some in the Dominion who, perhaps, help men such as Judge Cohalan to flounder still further by being "haunted The witness cald Cameron's state- ments often seemed exaggerated and often the accused would say one day that the Hupmobile was the best, hav- ing the moat power and two or three days later he would say the same about a Ford or a Mclaughlin. Feed Worrie% This went on until the early "fall, when Cameron was away a great deal. Feed matters, aaid Brown, took him out through the country, motoring to Winnipeg and return on one occasion. When he returned from the Winni- peg trip he was very optimistic about taking large stocks, of feed. Later in the fall he twice, against the advice of his relatives, made tripl to Chicago'with cattle. He was work- ing very hard, said Brown. In the middle of December Cameron suffer- ed a minor breakdown. Ho came to Ins home suffering from an accute at- tack of biliousness and had to be help- ed to his room, continued the witness.

He tour.hed there is some satisfaction that all in the United States are not painted with the same bilious and jaundiced hues. The Detroit Free Press, for in- stance, when commenting on the To- ronto text-book controversy, utters good editorial common sense when it says: "We on this side of tha Canadian border are being set a good example by the protest certain people In To- ronto are making against a new school text-book that criticizes rather harshly the conduct of the United States up to the time the country en- tered the world war, and, among other things, accuses us of being a nation of war profiteers.

Upon being further exam- ined on this point Brown said he has tried every way possible to locate these cattle but has not been success- ful. Cameron ilid not have any hesi- tancy talking about these cattle, If he brought up the subject himself, said Brown, but If anyone else started the conversation Cameron would not enter the discussion.

One day he would be optimistic and an- other day he would be depressed. He appeared moody and said Brown. Cameron seemed much relieved when spring came, averred Brown. He gave Brown the impression that he thought the hard work was all over. In June Cameron spoke as If there was very little work to do and posal to prosecute because he did not consider Cameron was in a condition to give a satisfactory explanation. Witness said he was unable to find that Cameron had benefitted himself at all. Everything Cameron did, Kem- mls said, was done for the benefit of the company. In answer to questions asked by Mr. MacDonald, witness said he believed Ihe exposure did not have anything to do with the Insanity, but it might have hastened things along. Mr. Kem- mls said he thought the report made In 1920 was the work of a crazy man. During the cross-examination Mr. MacDonald dwelt a great deal on the findings ot the official auditors. This report is a long one, containing in tha neighborhood of ten thousand words. All through the report references are made of the difficulty of securing needed information from the com- pany's books and tiles. g Criticism In Report "The of Sling was of snch a character as to render the gathering of information from documents very tedious and reads the report in one instance.
