GOVERNMENT HAS DONE MUCH IN FOUR MONTHS .Mayor llardie and Oapt. McKenzle, who ojinpcecd the mission to Ottawa nud Montreal to urge the government and tlie railways to undei^take a big reconstruction program In the �west provide against unemployment, have returned feeling very well satis-fleoke w-itb jtreat earnestness, and In ortler that he might say exactly what he had in his mind he fotlo\^;ed closely his written nddress. The only pity was tliat the nddress could not have been delivered to an audience of 3000 instead of 300. for ho struck a broadly spirit-tial tioto when he declared that Canadians must not,look altogether on the material side o^ things during the present era. Beginning nt the heginning, ha said that, broadly speaking, wealth is labor applied to the natural resources cation, but beortHi--e of n high protective tariff which the consumers had to pay. Canada in tho future will n�^ed about $350,000,000 annually tti pay her debt nnd the running expenses of the gov-ornnient. 'IM pay this Canada will huvo to watch her trade balance. Canada must not have an adverse 'balance against her. That, ot course,. Is one ot the main arguments ot tho vested interests of the east . Uut Great nrltaiu Is facing a eimilar problem and Great Britain Is not going to have an adverse Ijalance for she realizes she cannot have her cako and eat It. So to keep from spending money abroad tlia British Government on .March 1st put Ubsoltrte reMrictlons against raauy in>ports. while restricliotw still other goods, including fruiis, will be put on on July i. Must-Lower Tariff The speakers contention was that, Canada must work toward a gradually lower tariff because the west, where tJie growth nnd development is to take place which will pay the country's debt, must havt* the conmioditics of life and the commodities for development as cheaply as possible. Capt. Pearson concluded with an appeal ifor a better distribution of our comiifixlitles so that there may be no poverty. a country like- Canada where so mucit was. prodticed should be unheard of, and the complex machinery of society would 'have to (be remodelled and ad- F)ICKED UP IN ASSING FOn THE BUSY MAN It is uudersctood that the government hiis docldt'd to dlsfrandilso the enemy uIliniR for Iwonty'years. Officers ot high rank are being aeut by the peace contercuce to the eastern .-Vdriatic coast to examine the sltua-tfon there. Four slMps have lioon chartered for tho voyage from China to Europe for tho repatriation ot all Qcrmans lu China excepting a few miseionarlos. It Is stated that there will ihorlly be a change made among the senior officers ^t the .Kingston Armories, as the demobilization plans call tor a general reduction in staff. Rev. W. F. Cari>cnter, U.A.. has resigned tho pariah of llornings .Mills, and is to bo 'in charge of the parish ot Kingston, Virginia, living at the. town of iMatthews. Tor the first tiiuo tlie program ot-tha various sumuner schools to be held Uiroughout the Dominion this year wilt Include a course In Social Service. llov. .lames H.

As for labor, he be-! lieved that Canada with the natural Canada until ~\ushel , ^^^^ ^^^^ ^ dream to most ot us wliose closest acquaintance �with the man-roanutao lured birds has been on the occasion of visits from exhfbHlon aviators. But prohably it -won't be so long till the dream comes true. It -wasn't many years ago that the first automobile was a thing of wonderment on tho straeta c.: Lethbridge. Looking bacTc at those old models -whlcli chugged, noisily through our thoroughfares, oft-times refusing fco chug, to the merni-meht of the unbelievers, it is safe to say few of us thought then that 16 year's hence would see t!he automobile and the autotruck In such common use as is the case today. Then who Is there to say that ten ytters hence Gait Gardens will not have a space set apart for tilr-drome and landing field for the traffta of the air . it would 4)e a most convenient spot and would give Lethbridge advantages over other cities in that a landing would be possible in tho very heart of the city, In~a iheautlful park, whareae Oalgary and Medicine Hat wouUl be forced to put their alr-sta-ilons lu the suburbs. It's a fascinating problem, thla air travel. Juet think of -summering at Watcrton l^akca National Park, get ting up In' the ibbmlns and Jumphig Into your air-Ford to reach Lethbridge In halt an hour in plenty ot time for a good dfiy's work. � Or a sudden, call (riiore than Bow Island famierii. is not jr^ghL It is not as though the com-jj.any had not had time to complete the ^a&. The only excuse advanced by (be company Is that the line Is not a paying proposition. That is not the fkult pi the people who went into the country traversed by the branch after the C.P,R. had announced its intention and had commenced con-Btructfon. The C.P.R. owes a duty to riiese -people. �What the country should do now Is to construct 'the branch, and then put forth pvery effort to develop the district IhrougJi which It passes. Let the company throw Its Influence he-hind the big irrigation project planned for the country southeast ot Leth-brfdgo and there will be no do-a'bt that the western end of the branch will jtoy verry soon.

What will tl5l^PBi!�i��V-desl^tlopBthey j;we say In a few years to ^oroo when land to the soldiers wbo will want to farm. Me said that so far the land settlement policy had not beten very encouraging 'for It -was the intention at first to apply it to land far removed from railways. Now, however, tho Dominion government has a plan for the expropriation ol the land necessary out ot the 20 or 30 millions of acres ot vacant lands lying -within -d miles ot the railways. Whether this would prove satisfactorj- he could' not say. The main trouble would be over the price. Getting the land for the soldiers at a reasonable prlue is one of the greatest problems of reconstruction, and he was rather afraW that the vested interests which held much ot tills land would be afraid of such a radical measure. Capt, Pearson declared he was also afraid of Jbe result of arbitration to' set the prices for this land. Prices set by arbitration have a tendency to be high. Along with the land there are rich natural resources in the forests, mines and In the country's fisheries. Canada's coal deiwjsits ,are the second largest in the -world, and Alberta has 92 per cent, ot them. n The Railway Problem Wotvever much Canada produces, it is necessary, in order^to make 'it help carry the burden of the nation, that tbere be markets for it and transportation. Canada's railway problems occupied some of the speaker's time. Canada today, ho said, has railways enough for a population of '25,000,000 people. They are aheavy liability on the population at pre.tent. The C.N.R. and the O.T.P. both ex'penslvely built, had had to be taken over by.tbe government, and the speaker said it looked like a condition insCanada -svhe^ln an expensively built and bonded system ot railways operated by the government would he forced to compete with a less Expensively built and better managed corporation, the C.P.R., witi tlie result that Jt didn't look bright for cheaper transportatloir. Incidentally he declared tliat If Great Britain nationalizes her railways as Hon. Winston Churchill declares -will happen, the CP.K. will remain the only large privately owned railway system ,ln the British Etnplre. Capt. Pearson urged sqeezing the �^vat6�r out of Canadian railways, distributing them more evenly, and'thus making an el!fort to get cheaper transportation. .Too Generous to Capital Turning to tho question of -.Inance, Capt. Pearson presepted facts showing Canada's national debt at the present time to be $1,957,000,000 or $271 per capita, larger tharl that of Australia or U. S. or South Africa though onlj' about -10 per cent, a.s heavy as ihij per capita debt of Great Britain. But, said the speaUBr, the trouble in Canada is that we arc trying to niiso too much ot our revenue to meet this debt out of a tax on consunt&tion. rather than a tax on land and Improvement and an income tax. Groat Britain Jiad paid about 20 per cent, of the cost of the war during the Tvar by beavy ta^-e� on incomes, while the IJ.. S. paid 44 per cant, of the cost of the war out of needs of the soldiers in the best pes siblo way and this had been shown by the arrangement for a post discharge gratuity w-hich would cost Canada $130,000,000. He also asked for a broade'ning of educational policy that the spiritual and tho Idealistic might not be lost sight of in the materlaU 1 "J FAIERS FPR NEW HAIL NSURANCE ACT �ui6 ^l^^g fo setrup-^ithelr owfa'torrn'ot 6roud city ot Ijetli-bridge, "Surely these are stirring times.' (From Our Own Corrcspondeni) M.\CLEOD. March 3.-February 27, 191!!, was voting day Here aiid all over the province for election ot councillors and foi- or against the Muuniclpal Hail bylaw. In the Bright district while the total returns are not public, it is thought that a majority is in favor of the act. Only one contest was held for councillor, in the Ardenville district, where W. Perrin was elected over his opponent by a vote ot three to one. In district 6. Pearce, one ot the men withdrew before election day, thus giving five councillors acclamation. The 'flu epidemic is almost- past, only one death out of several cases has occurred recently. The M. H. Ofllcer put the ban on concerts apd dances, thus preventing the spread of disease. In one ot the districts south, many houses Jiave been uuder quarantine, which has now been lltt.etl. Sad Death A sad death In a home in jSwelme district was that ot.M/s.
