Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 13, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta VOLUME VII. LETHBRIDGE. ALBBKTA. MONDAY, JULY 13, 1914 NUMBER 179 So Says Sir Conan Doyle on his Return Home be Annex- ed to States Loiidon, July 13. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "has reached home from tola Ca- nadian-tour. Speaking of the Dominion's political destiny, he said. "Annexation to the United States is absolutely out of the question, lu. my opinion. There As not a single instance in. (history where two nations, standing apart like well-looted oaks have become' united. ''Then there is -the possibility, of Canada becoming: independent. I have the ''strongest view 'that this is equally impossible.' Canada .gets 73 per cent. of her" investments from Great Britain, 34 per cent. from. the United States, and 13 per cent, within her own bor- her a free insurance policy in the navy, and the diplomatic service of the Einplre is at her dis- posal. Canada is 'bound in honor in the. near future' to mako the Mother Country, some return for these priv- ileges. But from a material .point- of view she cannot break away from us for at least two or three generations, arid apart from material considera- tions, which I ,do not wish to rate too highly, J am convinced that there is a very real 'widespread element of imperial loyalty in Canada. They re- 'ttain- the "traditions of their ancestors by the end of the present i: centur-jv when Great Brjtaln will find; her daughter: bigger- than ;the of independence will have way: but iihtil then; at any rate, Canada is not likely. to throw off her allegiance. "The disturbing element in our rela- tions, jiisUnbw is, the Hindu question. I consider that the most difficult and, indeed, dangerous one. Jf ever the Empire is 'wrecked, it will be some such rock as. this. had no choice but to back up British Colum- bia hi keeping out the Indians."

Dominion Department of Agri- culture Would Help Farmers get Better Prices LET FARMERS SPEAK UP If tile poultrymen or Southern Al- berta, producers and buyers, wish to. better the marketing conditions in connection with eggs, the Dominion Department oi. Agriculture, through the poultry division, .will extend all the aid necessary. Mr: W. H. Ault, of the poultry di- vision; was in the city over the week- end, endeavoring to get in touch '.vith the actual-conditions as they exist today.. It is.the object of the depart-' ment to form what is known egg circles. Great strides have been made during the past year in -this connec- tion, and Mr, Ault-has just'been- io British Columbia, where he has suc- ceeded in convincing the poultryncn of the value of the scheme. It is es- timatcii that Canadian farmers lose annually between five and six million dollars as'a result of carelessness in the handling and marketing of The practice of simply using eggs as a medium of exchange for goods at local' store and of estimating their value by number, rather than by quality, has not been conductive to the'marketing'of a .high, c'.ass article. A cooperative egg circle is an association among farmers fur the purpose of marketing eggs frequently and regularly through a common me- dium. The object is to improve the quality of the eggs as they leave the farm, and to place them in the hands of the. consumer with the least pos- sible delay, and in the best .possible condition; The circle banks on the ever g'.wv- ing trade that will pay a premium for new laid eggs oi-uniform quality. The producer is often able by person- al canvas's, taking advantage of the local'market to obtain the price by the consumer, but the producer living at a distance has not this' opportunity, he has not a sufficient-, quantity nor is his supply constant enough to .warrant the. trou- ble and expense necessary to make special shipments. A co-operativo egg circle overcomes this-difficulty, and obtains for the at a1 distance approxi- mately' premium, less the transportation charges, that the near- by farmer'can secure. The eggs are collected at, regular intervals and the association secures 'the advantages of cheaper- transportation by. shipping (Continued on 1'atc -Assailant Waited Two Weeks VICTIM HAD GREAT POWER OVER CZAR St. Petersburg, Russia, July ;13.- Dctails reached here today in a ties- patch to the-Courier of a prbhahle fatal attache on the rmstic laj monk, Rasputin v. hose influence the Emperoi is said to he very great.

And Acres Choice1 Oil Lands Were Lost Under Their Very Noses IN 1 COUnS FIELD Somehody slumbered at. the switch, and thereby a party of local men "became the applicants for about three thousand acres of choice oil lands'in the Coutts district, when those who. previously filed coal applications basked in the belief that their coal leases blanketed the petroleum and natural gas rights also. Some time ago the word was pass- ed around to the eRect that an, plication for coal rights prohibited, the taking of applications for rights within the period allowed for the payment of the coal rentals. Some large filings for coal were taken at the local office, -iai some of the choicest of the oil lands in the.Couits field. On Friday tha word came from Ottawa that an ap- plication for coal did not blanket the land insofar as the petroleum rights were concerned. The local men be- came aware cf this fact, and C. E- Mitford proceeded to appropriate land office steps as a place of abode on Friday night, remaining in camp, until this morning, when R. F. Hau- sen, Dr. Cragg' and. W. B. Mitford got in on the oil applications foe 'about acrcsi located in town- ship 1 range 12, township 2, .range 11, and township 2, range-la. The land office officials thab there has always been 9 distinction between the coal and oil, just as then: is a difference between the homestead or surface rights and the petroleum rights the coal ap- plications liled it is presumed the. applicants were titides the delusion that thev had the first right to file c-n the petroleum rights, or that 'their coal applications blank- eted the oil and gas rights. If -the rentals .are paid their applications would have to be dealt with before any applications for oil could he taken, but under the old regulations' it was assumed that the oil rights; were not available when once the coal rights had been filed, whether the" rentals were paid of not, within the thirty days, had elapsed After the thirty days without any. payments being maue, the coal applications and oil applications received. No coal applications can now be made to blanket the rights to othec minerals.
