A. Bu- chanan's speech In the House ot I'cun- nons on Keb. 31, relative lo provin- cial control ol natural resources: Ur. W.A. Buchanan (Medicine Hat) 1 would like to deal with a nattet of considerable to tbe westera provinces. This House is fa- miliar with the. fact that the policy of the present Prime Minister, the leadw ot the Opposition ia ISM, was favorablt to the transfer! to the wes- tern provinces oi their natural re- sources. That policy was adhered during tbe campaign ot aai I to ascertain from the Prime, Minister today whether K is to of the government to trans- fer to the western provinces tbeli na- tural resources, as promised by ilm sell in many public declaration! throughout .western prom Ised on the Halifax platform and a! prolmnently mentioned In the Con servatives' handbook which was tree- ly distributed throughout the country during tbe 1S11 campaign. It has bees 'Said that, on accouo of the fact that certafc oi the- prov- inces ot western Canada have return ed Liberal governments to admlniste their policy ot the Prim Minister has cot been acceptable t the people o! the West. I do no think that argument holds water, lo e promises. 1 was ot the opinion at be would carry out his promises promptly as he could. Instead of lat.-the Prime Minister ol thiscouu- y is departing from the policy htcli ke had in 1955 and lo because we ttit the bora- Hies of Manitoba were extended the ,ea ot living the provinces their na- ural resources was to a greater S3 extent abandoned. But early THE POSITION OF ULSTER. WHAT the proposed concessions to Ulster are lo be will be a mailer of interest not p.hly 16 the people of Great Britain, bill to those in the Overseas Dominions. For the Home Rule ques.- llpn is an Imperial question, and with the Wliiics of conflict Muted at by Ulster, the Empire high time that the remqdy should arrive. .Mr. Hatch's scheme looks good. It will mean a Leth- bridge price for live stock, although this price may not be established by local consumption or demand for a while, yet the fact that the world's markets are open lo us guarantees unlimited competition in buying so there can be no doubt but what it will be satisfactory. Prices are good now but they will be better when this market is this reasoa, that ever since the- firs elections in 1905 and the elections o 1909 in the provinces oi the flwt th Prime Minister has a'ibered to tha part of his platform in regard to th :eturn to the western provinces their natural resources. In th campaign this was oce ot the ments used to offset strong sen- timent in favor of reciprocity in tbe prairia provinces. I had very much pleasure in listening rill look to wise salesmanship to solve in a fair for many incidental expenses incur red by the buyer, which are always paid by the herc possible, a conciliatory manner of the most intricate problems of the day. Monday next is the day: fixed by Mr. 'Asquilh for making his statement. At this stage it would be opportune to con- skier the position taken up by Protestant Ulster in .one particular, and that is with 'reference to the proposed reduction of Irish members iu Ihe- linpcfial parliament frgm 103 to 42, as Ihe out- come of Home Rule. Under the. BUI the present representalion_of Ulster will be reduced from 33 1 Pro'.cslanMIlster strongly objects lo as one of the grounds against lhe: granting of Home Rule. It is one which ap- pears a constitutionally knotty point for Premier Asquith to gel over. Protestant Ulster-has also tliis contention that at present it is under-reprH- sented in. the Imperial Parliament according to population. That Home Rule for Ireland is inevitable, sooner or later, may be taken for granted. It is only a case of a wise measure being brought into effect which will meet as far as possible with the wishes, of both, parlies in.Ireland for the. assur- Hiicc.'df peace, and for a time, but for all time. With this hope "we await with in- terest the outcome of next Monday's1 announce- ment. session anil the record ol-lke govern- ment; Ot course, as tuts matter ot iiatural-resources is. the peo- ple of the West promise'made to it, 1 rpmijW them, unless they returned 7dniervative governments to power .n Alberta ar.d Saskatchewan.
