Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 14, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX THE LETIIBRIDGE DAILY HERALD THURSDAY, .TUNE 14, 1917 LIBERALS PROPOSE A RESOLUTION TO Hon. G. P. Graham To Offer It, But Not as Amendment to Conscription Bill TEACHER SUED I Ottawa, .Tune 13.- Matters relating to trade and transportation enpngod the attention of parliament today, when tho estimates of Sir George Foster, minister of trade and commerce, were under review. Incidentally the question of settlement of the westenn coal strike came up and Hon. T. YV. Orothers stated that action would he taken very' shortly by the government to insure the operation of the mines, if an agreement is not arrived at between the operators and the miners. \V. K. Knowles referred to the urgency of the matter. He said that delay now might mean the loss of human life In the west in the months to come. Sir George Foster stated that it was the purpose of Great Hritain to purchase supplies as far as possible in Canada. Referring to tho matter of the control of prices, he stated that there could be no arbitrary fixing of values by a food controller. Storage of foods and speculation play a part in the matter of high prices, but the basic causes of present prices is the war and conditions in which we live. Col. J. A. Currte criticized the policy of the United States in stipulating that money lent to the allies shall be spent for supplies in that country. He thought this an unfriendly act. He was also disposed to criticize the minister of trade and commerce for lack of aggressiveness in regard to trade matters. He said the country would favor the exercise of more energy on the part of the department. Conscription of Wealth. Hon. Geo. P. Graham has given notice of a resolution relative to the conscription of wealth, which is to be moved as an amendment to tho motion to go into supply and voted on in order-to give the members of the opposition an opportunity to express tiieir views as to what steps they think should be taken by the government in addition to the conscription of men. It will not be moved ns an amendment to the military service bill probably because of the fear of the Liberal supporters of conscription that such an amendment would endanger that measure. Mr. Graham's resolution is as follows: "That in the opinion of this house it is desirable that steps should be taken forthwith by the government to provide that accumulated wealth shctild contribute tomediately and effectively to the cost of the war; and that all agricultural, industrial, transportation and national resources of the country should be organized forthwith so as to insure the greatest possible assistance to the empire in the war. and to reduce the cost of living to the Canadian people." (From Our Own CorresponflenO Macleod. Juno 14.-In the district court Judge Mc.N'oill presiding, several cases were on the list. Some were settled out of court others laid over to the next sitting except that of Pearson vs. Hazelmern School District. Pearson had boon engaged by tho official trustee during the hard years, and agreed to teach one month free if engaged for a year. I>atcr he changed his mind and sued for the months pay, which was given him by the judge, but without cost or interest, as it was not in writing. Tho judge scored Pearson severely for making his bond of less value than his wortl. Heavy rains of the past five days make travelling very bad. but make the growing crops very good, one can almost hear it grow, and has the tendency to attract land seekers and buyers to this desirable district. Several sales have been made the past week, and several pending. The agent for the Ford motor tractor gave an exhibition Wednesday afternoon, at Mr. R. Hackets farm south of town, all worked well, but the north end of the land was very-wet, and the wheels cut in some but nothing to interfere with the tractor doing good work. Rev. \V. A. Lewis left for Edmonton Wednesday to move his family to Macleod, where he will reside for the next four years, 43 pastor of the Methodist church.

Many residents ot the town and district are hunting the wood pile these days-not from choice, but from necessity-as no coal has beon shipped ihto town for about a month now and very many people are entirely out of fuel save* for the wood that can be had.

Between now and the end of the year the organization for assessing and collecting this tax will be completed and already steps have b.een taken to perfect the system, tfrtilch is necessarily complicated and difficult of administration.

June 13-Eighty-one alleged "slackers" are In jail in rnnge towns as the result of n drive by authorities. Nine men who came to the court today to register, they said, Were arrested. With tho capture ot Jerusalem by British forces, imminent, there is pnr-tlculnr timeliness in tho discussion by Dr. It. W. Soton-Watson (D. Litt; King's College, London) in "The Now Europe" ot the problem of tho establishment of a Jewish colony under British auspices In 1'nlestino.' Tho Holy Land is In 11 position to become tho surest bulwark of tho Sue/. Canal against tho predatory nmbitlona of the GermmiR in tholr "thrust toward tho East." "A British Palestine." writes Doctor Seton-W'ntaon, "must bo a Jewish Palestine tho homo of a restored Jewish people, the spiritual centre ot the whole Jewish race." Ho fortifies his contention by tho traditional concern of the British In tho history ot tho Holy Land and of its inhabitants nnd the national grntitudo that Jews tho world over will feel toward those who havo wrought for the rectification of social and political abuses from which the Jews have suffered all those centuries. "Our strategical needs have sent us to Pnlestino. They conspire with tho British instinct for liberty nnd nationality to Induco us to encourage tlio development in Pnlestino of a. Jowish dominion utider the British flog. Tho strongest ot all bulwarks is a large and progressive population devoted to the soil upon which it dwolls and loyftl to the British cause, which only tho Jewish people can constitute in Palestine. They alone can bring a passionate love for the land of their ancestors and the goal .of their longing durlug 2000 years; they alone can bring along with this spiritual force knowledge, technical skill and material resources for the full expansion of Palestine's natural powers. Experience has taught us that the self-governing dominions, so far from being nn extension of burdens, are towers of strength in the days of trial. A self-governing dominion in Palestine, in like fashion, could assume in the pro- e^Tfs.ROYAL YEAST Ha* been Canada's favcrlta yeast for over * quarter �f a century; Broad behed with Royal Vaaat will keep froth and moist tonffoMhan that made with any other, so that a full week's supply can easily be made at ono baking, and the last loaf will be Just as food as tho first.
