Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 4, 1919, Lethbridge, Alberta .'OLUMEX11. LKTHBUlDtiK, TUESDAY, MAUCII 1, I'Jl'-l NT? :K 7t> Refuses To Aid In Feeding Hungry Germans WILL BREAK UP BIG HUN To Aid in Defending Populace From ans Issue Appeal to Over- throw Government. COPENHAGEN, March Tlic Prussian government lias declared a stale, of siege in Hit1 police line or prf-jmro to meet an e-inal- uatJou of rales which would gavn residents along the line tho ad- vantages vn freight rates which completion of the line would bring. A Contradiction On Monday, the morning papers of 'he west carried another dis- patch stating that at the Bitting in Regina, Sir Ucnry Dray ton-had' staled to the delegation from the eastern aeclJon of the Lethbridgo Weyburn line, who apjie.tred hc- forc the urgius the Itumedlato conBlriu-tion ot the road, that "The 0, P. U. had made up Its mind to complete this lino as soon as possible, otherwise the board would have ordered it This contradiction of reports did not jnpcar right to the Herald so the Canadian Press was quer- ied, irllh Ihe result that Vice- PresJcIent Coleman was interview- ed at Brandon, and the following was received this raorn- a Luxifcry" r' "Interviewed today on (he tude oE the C. P. H. in connection with the completion of tho Wey- line, C. Cole- man, vice-president ot that com- pany, Eaiil: "The position of the C. P. K. with respect to the completion the line is that Iho gap to be completed would sarvc a district which, is lield under Ions term grazing and thero is no prospect of sutncient local traffic to niahe that portion of the lino profitable. "When there is ?o much neces- sary liulldlne ivhicli should bo done as soon as iiosaiblc It would be "a pity to divert money, tabor and malerinl to the construction of a line which can not be regarded as an absolute necessity or as anything more than a luxury.'1 A Strons Point One of the strong points made by the delegation from the Leth- bridgo-Vfelburn line at Rc'gma was that Letlibridge coal was de- livered at Manyberries nt a rate of a ton, while- at CJovanlock, 37 miles away but across" the gap, the freight rateTis a ion, or 133 per cent higher. The same applies on cemetit and lumber. However, Ihc question seems to have simmered down now that either the C. P. fl. will build the line or equalized freight ratea will be put into eli'ect. Foch Demands Sun-ender Of Hun Merc .antile Fleet COPENHAGEN, March Foch has demanded the immed- iate delivery of the German mercantile fleet without regard to the ques- tion of food supply, according lo i dispatch from Weimar, where the German national assembly is in session. Only Fair Play To All Will Save Civilization LONDON, March Lloyd George, in addressing the fint mertina today of the joint committee of employers and employees con. stitutcd by the industrial parliament last week, said: "Civilization unless try to it, may be precipitated and shat- tered to atoms. It can only be saved by the triumph of justice and fair- play to all classes alike. Let the workers the premier de- clared, "that where there is an Increase of products they wilt get a fair share of it." Mr. Lloyd George said that what was wanted was more confidenca and underttandins between employers and employees. TT French Govt.
