Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - January 4, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FiUDAY, .TANUAHY 1, 11)18 THE LETIIBRIDGE rr.-.Vf.Y ilEIlALD PAGE SEVEN REIGHT RATES I 0 mr.ip^v Paper Argues That Uy.

No ono will attempt to deny that was need for action of some In order to main fain our rail-unimpaired, some drastic action immediately necessary. Tho question to bo settled was the there kind. \va ya was onl v nnturo of that action, admittedly im-peratlvo In itH urgency to rolieVQ an mitirnly unbearable situation. Canada's government railway board, tin Independent and admittedly impartial commission, ban decided that a general lncreo.Rn of rates Ik a necessary measure. Whatever else, may be said of Canada's railway board, it must be admitted that it has both the knowledge to enable- it to understand thoroughly what is necessary and what is linneccHHary, Whatever else may be sa.'d oi' it, it must also bo admitted that any mistakos of judgment it may have made in tho past, these have not leaned impartially to tho side of the railways. Tho board has, through all tiie years of (is existence, been so im partial a judge aa to have earned the censure of tho railways! for its rigid regurd for the rights of the put,. ~. For years it has stood between tho railways and the people, with a record for fair dealing that ia second to no court in the country. From such -t board might well be expected a decision which would not infringe* upon any rights of the public as against the railways. It must bo, then. thai, the board, in coming to Ita recent momentous decision, has de!ib-orated carefully, taken all cireumstau- ON OR SOUR. ACID STOMACH Instant Relief!

Board 27 4-21 cos info account, and reached its conclusion logically, with due regard to nil the needs of tho oh ho and all the hardships which might accrue. To question the hoard's action, therefore, must presupposo some ulterior motive, some motive not to ho found In tho urgent needs for the action taken as a measure of rellof. Until some charge of this nature is made, until it shall bo shown that the board has some object in view not in tho best interest?} of tho country, it. must bo conceded that tho action of tho board is a s.ncere action: Tho railway board, appointed for the purpose of using Judgment In matters pertaining to railways and (heir relation to tho public, approved by that public In its stand ou audi matters throughout Its whole existence for yearn, has exercised that, judgment in this matter, sincerely and honestly, with a single eyo to the best interests of Canada. Has Not Acted Hastily It being admitted that tho board has acted not hastily, but with every caro and entirely in what it thinks are the best interests of Canada, it is in order to go into the reasons for such action. J.*;ve.r sJuee the beginning of the war, the cost of all kinds of supplies has* been going up by leaps and bounds. Not only the cost of labor, hut the cost of raw material, of finished products, of machinery of everything in all kinds of buH.norises; and this to a very largo extent, ia the cause of tho increased cost of living. No Industry has been free from this excessively rapid increase. lOvery industry has felt it. Mvery industry has responded in tho only possible way open to it-by the price of what it has to sell-every industry, we should say, but Die railway industry. The railway Industry lias been subject for years to a similar kind of regulation to that, which is just now beginning to he imposed upon other industries. The prices at which the railways have sold their product have been restricted at every turn in the interests of public. At the same time, the railways have been equally, with every other industry subjected to the rapidly rising cost of everything they had to buy. Labor has been only a part of this general increase. To such an extent has this been tho case, that the two weaker trans-continental roads fell into serious financial difficulties. The stock of the third has dropped to almost unprecedented^' low figures. * No Signs of Halt. There are no signs of a halt to the increase in cost. There is a very evident danger of the usefulness of the roads being impaired to a disastrous degree through inability of the receipts to cope with the necessary replenishment and increase in rolling stock and other facilities for carrying on their business. If present conditions are to continue, in the face of constantly increasing cost, disaster must if no relief is found. Must Protect Stock, is-a point which bears direct-on the need for relief. The stock of the Canadian Pacific Railway is Canada's premier security. It is widely held, and has been regarded as one of the safest securities in the world. All kinds of financial institutions hold this stock as security for advances on all kinds of widely varied enterprises. To allow it to be depreciated to such an extent as to throw all this stock on the market would be a financial disaster. And Canada is in no position today to stand up under such.a disaster as this would be. For that same reason of stress In nor present financing, Canada is not in a position to nationalize the C.P.H. If. would be an almost impossible load ' even did Canada not need every cent 1 of money she can possibly raise by ti.x or loan for the purpose of carjy-. i:;g her war enterprises. As things are, Canada cannot possibly afford to r,;.:rr into such a gigantic enterprise, in the fact of the unavoidable liabilities sue must enter into for the period i of tiie war and probably long after. J At the same time it must bo ad-' mitted that the railways have just ;.; much right to reimburse themselves r 'to a reasonable extent in the face of i enormously increased costs as have ; the manufacturers, the merchants or .'the shipper. On these grounds, then, it is reasonable to suppose, the railway board hps made its decision. This is a case, the ! board has announced by this decision, ' in which the people of Canada must | make a certain limited sacrifice. ! The sacrifice involved, although it j looms large in the lump sum, is little  enough. It is a mere bagatelle com-' pared with what may yet be expected in almost every direction. It is as nothing compared with what lias already been by Canada's soldiers. The people who stay at home must be prepared to make stupendous sacrifices. They must make sacrifices In .ever-increasing proportions aa the war ! goes on. They must endeavor to ro-| train from embarrassing the government, which they have just, elected to undertake the task of equitably dis- FROM HEAD LAKES FOR 1917 SEASON Port Arthur, Ont., Jan. 4.-A statement of the Dominion board of grain commissioners regarding grain shipments from Port Arthur and Fort William for tho 1017 season of navigation in bushela shows the following: To Canadian Ports Wheat R0,fi59,G6G.

What would be thought of the families of the men of Canada's army, of the families of the 100,000 men soon to go over, if they should rise up in arms against the sacrifice their men and they themselves will have to make by order of the government. They arc making no such objection, they recognize the need and they are willing to undertake their share of the task. And theirs is a sacrifice immeasurably beyond that which will be entailed on the rest of us by a fifteen per cant, increase in freight rates. The burden, while groat, is little enough compared with theirs. The manufacturers, the merchants, the shippers and the individuals in Canada who stay at home while these men fight for us, can well afford to bear H, aud think themselves fortunate they are not called upon to give their all for their country, as these others have. The Canadian people are in a mood for radical measures at the present time. It is quite right that they should he. But it Is nocessary that they dis^ tluguish between sound and unsound radicalism. The railway board's order has all the appearances of being sound. Mere objection to it on grounds of personal interest does not disprove its soundness. A popular demand based on expert knowledge whatever, for the adoption of some other not only radical but revolutionary measure to supplement or take the place of the recent radical an apparently sound governmental dispositions in 1 railway matters, would come under the head of dangerous radicalism such as might defeat the very purposes that it was intended to serve. Let not tho people become too impetuous. Let them not become impatient with the government. Let them have full confidence in it. It has every need of their confidence. The war is furnishing it with embarrassments in abundance without its being compelled to stop and argue with the public the wisdom and justice of every war measure that It finds itself compelled to adopf.. \ Pro v.

Winnipeg, Man., Jan. 2.--The Winnipeg Telegram in discussing the statement of Premier Norris on Manitoba's liability In connection with Canadian Northern bonds, and the propoa-ed raise of freight rates says: "Premier Norris is not to be taken seriously when he says that Manitoba's liability under Its guarantees of C.N. R. bonds still remains, even though the Dominion government is taking over the system Mr. Norris probably does not expect to be taken seriously 1 by any but the ignorant. j "When tho Dominion government i takes over the C-.N.H. and buys out the original owners it becomes the owner and the Dominion of Canada becomes responsible for every cent that tho system owes Manitoba, and every other province thus automatically he-comes released horn the scores of millions of nominal liabilities that they would otherwise have been called up to liquidate if the Dominion government had not come to tho rescue of this system. , "When Manitoba is thus released of $25,221,&.so liability, it would at least become Manitoba's premier to refrain from making a shout of protest against Pro due tie n ThU illustrates the unusual amount of sediment of ordinary Cocoas unboiled Sediment of Cowan's Cocoa when hnff- ed from 1 to 3 minutes.

"It is mighty unfortunate for Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia, that the Dominion government is taking over the C.N.R. and thus relieving them of liabilities that it would ruin them to have to pay. "That being the case it Is in mighty bad task for the premier of any of these provinces to carp and kick when a Dominion government board decides that having assumed these enormous liabilities, it is necessary to take measures to prevent other liabilities from being added to them, and therefore recommends a railway tariff increase to enable the railways to pay for the cost of their upkeep and operation." case it developed that several other stores hud been Victimized to greater or less extent, and it. is thought that these three youthful culprits could tell a great deal about what became of the articles which have been, from time to time, taken during the absence of the proprietors of these stores.

Ottawa, Jan. 4.-A statement issued from the office of the food controller urges the importance of a large supply of natural ice being stored this winter, especially in small towns and country districts. An Increase In the quantity of natural ice will probably be required, it is said,  by dairjpfeen and otMr dealers in perishable food products because the supply of artificial ice may bo much reduced during the coming summer and next fall. them to the industrial school at New Westminster, for two years.

Mr. Suddaby had missed a small amount of cash from his cash register and a few fountain pens on the' morning before Christmas, and he notified the police and took extra precautions for protecting his store. Christmas night, while Mr. Suddaby was enjoying his Christmas dinner with a few friends, Constable Dooley, was taking a careful walk about town, being careful to take in the alley in the rear of tho Suddaby store. Here he found a window into the basement open and entering he succeeded In reaching the store room and turning on the lights before the three boys were aware of danger. Being caught with the goods/ having robbed the cash register, and having m*ule quite a selection of knives, pons, fountain pens and other things, they were completely surprised and Constable Dooley at once phoned Mr. Suddaby the result and the proprietor was soon on hand. Dooley's work was so cleverly executed that there was no defence to be made aud after holding the boys for several days under bond, they came before Magistrate YVhimeter yesterday afternoon and were sent before Judge Thompson this morning with the above mentioned result.
