Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 17, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESDAY, JULY 17, 1M7 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE FIVE i __ __ Ottawa House Hears the Argument for Extension This would not. ho a serious step liocnuso it would merely provide o Bovnn-yonr pnrliuinnntary term. England had got along with a oovon yours' imrlinmcutary term for J GO yearn. Sir Itobort mild If. was not nocoBsnry to dwell upon tho gravity of tho war situation at Uio present tlmo. Wo IiitiHt realize, lio said, that tlio existence of tho emplro and of civilization is at stake. In support of this vlow Sir Robert quoted tho statement rnnilo by Sir Wilfrid Laurlor In February, 1910, when ho said that if Germany wero to win it would mean the end of all individual liberty. Sir Itobort Bald that tho government did not corao ns a suppliunt in connection with this mnttor. It was willing whenever It became neonssary to submit its roo-ord to the people. Mlstnkoa had boon lundo no doubt, In tho conduct of tho war, but lis fow mistakes had booii made by Canada as by any other part of tho empire. The government, ho said, does not foar an appeal to tho people. Sir Robert added that party questions have no plaoe with tho man at tho front whoso only object Is to win tho war for progross Mid humanity. Ho realized tho responsibility which rested upon his shoulders as well as tho responsibility which confronts Sir Wilfrid Laurler as loailor of the opposition. In closing, Sir Hobort said ho had received many lotters advislnn tho government if nocoasary to force this roaolutlon through tho house by a party majority. In this connection, when tho former resolution was Introduced ho said, that It would not bo passed In the face of opposition. Sir WANTED THE ALIEN Morgan 964 11th Street S. & Whittaker 612 7th 8treet S. Phone 1820 Autos Painted Paperhanging Wilfrid Laurler on that occasion, had said that tho Urltlsh authorities did not recognize a resolution that wns not unanimously ndoptod. Tlil� menus, ho said that a division in thin house would result In a division In the British house. Therefore, if the resolution cannot bo carried by a practically unanimous vote It would not ho prt;B30d. Sir Robert said ho \ would like to seo nn extension of tho parliamentary term Import on a fair union of tho two political parties and p'.odgod to boo the war to a victorious conclusion. Sir Robert repeated that he did not propose to press this motion If it is seriously opposed, but ho would once moro appeal to tho members of tho house to avoid tho very great evilB of a war eloctlon. Opposition Reply Tho opposition reply came from Hon. Goorgo 1\ Graham, who agreed with all that that tho prime minister had said in regard to tho desirability of pressing tho war to successful conclusion. "Wo aro in tho war," he said, "and proposo to stay in it until victory porches on tho banners of tho allies." Ho then announced his Intention of moving an amendment before ho took his seat. Mr. Graham, then wenf on to Bay that wo are losing our senso of proportion. This resolution was introduced hoforo the military service bill had beer passed, although the term of parliament will not expire for three months. Parliament, ho said, had dealt with only ono part of a necessary program. Ho had supported one branch. of tho program and ho was now going to ask the house to support tho other branch. Mr. Graham stated tho amendment he was going to movo was the one calling for a change in the taxation system of tho country, of which he gave notice somo tlmo ago He had not moved It In connection with the consideration of tho military servico bill bocauso ho would have been accused of delaying tho bill. It was just as important. ILifiJL Word came to the mounted pollco hern today to deport, tho three Austrian* arrested last week here for crossing Into Canada without proper passports or examination. Tho three men had, however, been fined and allowed their liberty last week. The pollen arc now hunting1 for them again, to fulfil the order for deportation. PACKERS ARE VERY Montreal, July 16.-"An ignorant and malicious attempt to get political advantage to help a discredited administration," was tho way Albert Matthews, director of Matthews. Black-well, Ltd., expressed himself in referring to the O'Connor report, charging his firm with having mado hugo profits from the supplying of foodstuffs to tho entente combatants. Mr. Matthews qualified tho whole report as a tlssuo of inaccuracies-ho used tho word "fabrication"-thus implying inaccuracies wilfully committed. Mr. Matthews said the prime minister had been asked for an investigation. Ho denied Mr. O'Connor's statement that there was a bacon monopoly. The American packers' profits on a percontnge basis were much larger than the Canadian firms, he arguod. Hennescy & Wilson, North Lethbridge PRESIDENT WILSON SELECTS LEGLESS WAN.
