Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - March 8, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta May flax Low VOLUME VIII. LETHBHIDGE, ALBERTA, MONDAY, MAItCH 8, 1915 NUMBER 73 C.N.R. NOT ABLE TO GETCASH And is Unlikely Line from Calgary to Lethbridge Will be Built Soon BUCHANAN URGES BUILDING OF LINE Ottawa, March is diiitc clear that, there- is very little possibility of the Canadian Northern Railway un- dertaking Ihc construction lines in Canada this year, or probably fur several years This fail- road finds it impossible to raise mon- ey, anil, LuiisL'ciuentlv, it is asking tor the extension of time for the con- struction oi lines for which it lias received char UTS. Ucforc the llaihvay Conimil.tec it was intimated by the representative of the company that if The time, was not extended they would have to consent lo the charters laps- ing. One of the extensions asked lot and granted was that of the line from Calgary to Lethbridge, though at thu time liii.s request was under consider- ation was liiritcc' tiiat as the mon- ey had been raised for the construc- tion of this line mulor Ihr, Riiarnnteca given by the Alberta Government, il was impossible that some work might be undertaken this year. A. Uu- chanun, the member lor Medicine HaL constituency, has placed before the Premier, the urgent need of the con- struction of the proposed C. N, H. lines in his constituency, anil Mr, Bordeh has written the Canadian Northern railway authorities com- mending the request.. It is not likely, however, that, the Canadian Northern railway will undertake any construc- tion work except on the lines gnar- teed by the Provincial government, and even in this case it is question- able whether they are in a position lo act. From .all that can be gather- ed it wqi ;keep Uic U.iV.R.. busy to operate existing lines, without under- taking any work.'They cannot raise that means that they cannot-build -new liner; GREEK COUNCIL VOTES TO ENTER WAR BUT KING BLOCKS WAY On the Iclt is a view ui Constantinople taken from I he opposite'side of the river, showing Uic Turkish capital (now abandoned by the government) which is soon expected to fall into the hands .of llic allies On tlic right is a Ijird's-eyc view o[ the Dardanelles from Kum Kail'.

Some of the correspondents ex- press the belief that the present deadlock between King Conatan- tine and many of Ms advisers, re- garding the country's intervention in the war, is the result of antag- onism has arisen between the ruler and VenezeloG, premier in the Cabinet that resigned Sat- urday, after its declaration in fa- vor of joining the Allies was frowned upon by the King. Other correspondents are of the opinion that the intervention of Greece on the side of the Allies already has.been snreed upon, and that the-crisis, which now is ap- -parcnt is artificial, havjng been arranged to make It easier for King Conctantine to decide ag- ainst Germany, to which he has feft under obligations for fam- ily and political reasons. The in- fluence of Germany is supposed to have been responsible in a con- siderable measure for Greece ob- taining possession of Kavala and Salonlki on the Acnean Sea at the end of the Balkan war.
