Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 9, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta SIX THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD 0, IflHi For the Laundry Silver Gloss Starch Commission Looks With Grave Suspicion On All of Allison's Transactions The visit of 'Mr. Sanford Evans was talked of at the meeting of ihe board of trade yesterday. It was felt that this was important, especially to the farmers, and the entertainment com- mittee were asked to take charge of the arrangements for the occasion and provide an opportunity for a good crowd to hear this gentleman, who will be in Lethbridge on June 22nd. There was same talk about issuing a visitors' guide to the city, describ- ing the points of interest, attractions at the park, river bottom, giving the street car schedule, etc. Commission- er Freeman has the idea in hand. The matter of appointing an attrac- tion committee was also brought up, and S. J. Siiepherd asked to report on the legal standing of such a commit- tee. Attraction committees are at- tached to a number of boards of trade, the purpose being to relieve persons from unnecessary expense or legal action when-matters of trade or busi- ness were in dispute or required ad- justing.

It was predicted that Cur- veil would nail him to the cross, but his performances hnd been a miser- able fiasco. Kef erring to Sir Sum Hughes' letters of rocoinmondntiun to the shell commission, Mr. Henderson said it was u perfectly proper thins for a minister to endeavor to get put- roitngo for his own constituency in u legitimate way. Col. Allison knew the j Commissioner Duu1 did not think so. Jfr. Henderson having referred to tile commission payments and subse- fjuent division as an automatic chain, Commissioner DuiT said that it ap- peared to bo an emiloss chain. He. was not the keeper of thoir conscience but ho would like to have seen some of them. It was stnmgo that Alli- son's name appeared now here, in transactions though lie beneilited io the extent of -Mr. Henderson: "It was ft loose, and careless arrangement." type ot" men he was introducing to the shell commission. He was not look- ing for commissions at the time. "He have contemplated that it Yoakum got anything he would siiuro it." commented Sir William iUeritlith. Mr. Henderson admitted that now this was quite obvious. Then Mr. Henderson referred to letters Allison sent to the International people and Dowler-Forbes, saying that nothing was to be added to the price to pro- vide a commission for himself. Sir William Meredith observed thai lie must have led General Hughes to believe that he was taking that course rith regard to all fuse contracts. Mr. Justice Duff said that the.com- mission business required a good deal j On the. other hand ho thought it to be a carefully calculated arrangement. He was not concerned abo-it the Am- ericans. but with his i el low-country- men concerned in this thing and the whole thing, he said, is that Col. Alli- son, as confidential agent of the min- ister of militia, dips his hand in the till to the tune of in connec- tion with these contracts. Mr. Henderson: "That is a strong expression." Commissioner Duff: "I intend it to be strong."

He thought there would have been no difficulty at the ime in raising any amount of money on the 34.00 graze fuse contract. The commissioner said that Allison had gone to one of his own partners in to commission, aud addressing Mr. Henderson, added: "Probably hat is something that am sure you vouhl not preteud to justify without the whole position as he- ween himself and Yoakum to the commission and Gen. Hughes'." Mr. Henderson: ''It was distinctly egrettable that he did not explain he situation to the minister." Sir "Win. Meredith: "Was he not nly honestly, but legally bound to disclose that Mr. Henderson declared that if "Mr. Allison told the minister this the reply would have been to "go to it.'r In the course of further argument by (Mr. Henderson, Sir Wm. Meredith said that when Allison was told by Yoakum there was a commission for him he had not the moral courage to resist j it. Commissioner Duff asked Mr. Hen- derson if he did not think' that Yoa- kum. if he had realized that his part- ner was dealing with the confidential agent of General Hughes, would have dropped the transaction. To him such a thing was inconceivable. He added: "Dti you think a man in a confidential position would do what has been done without arousing suspicion, I think that everything in 'connection with the transaction must be examined with suspicion." Mr. Henderson: "I entirely agree with you that Col. Ailison later realiz- ed that the transaction would be look- ed upon with suspicion." Sir William Meredith: "Then, -why didn't he return the money? Mr. Henderson: "To Sir William Meredith; "No, to his principal." air. Henderson: "i know of only one case where it was done." Commissioner Duff: "I am sorry that you say only Winnipeg.
