Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 14, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HEKALD FrWay, March It, tOT3. A^RIOH, FRASIIAinn] TEA Oi^ion's Ohoic��t UttttT th� World Producaa. SKAbEO PACKCTSiOMLT. BiMily ePMn and Mbcwl Premie^'Sifton Delivered Speech Refuting Aspersion of Knockers SCHOLARS PieiORE! SCHO Fleetwood Pupils Arrange'Fine Entertainment-Pack the Building for Them oiv- the i-Rilway development in Alberta under the Liberal admin'stratlon. He said that undea- the proviucinl guarantee policy adopted in 1909, 1,500 miles of �teel, repreeentiug a vrUh" of |S0,-000,000, had been laid iu the province, and in addition 780 milf'S had bflen graded. The government policy ^vas also responsible for a large amount of railroad coustruotlon by the C. N. R. in the southern and eastern portions of the province not unde;' guarantee. The value of farm lands ahJiig the railway branch lines had, duriag ^he last three years Increased $5.00 poi- acre. In thirty years previous to the incorporation of the province and the coming in of a Liberal adminiatration, there had been bull; one thousand miles of railway, whereas today there was treble that amoiint of railway line in the province. Regarding telephone e.xtensious. the Premier said he thought more people had telephones iu Alberta iu proportion to population than in an.v other province in the Dominion, and they had also, he believed, a better service. But it was not complete yet. The rural lines of this countr.v were not paying on their own basis, but with the assistance of the long distance lines and tjie exchanges we are able to keep on extending those lines, and the peo-' pie did not have' to pay the interest on the six millions that had been expended upon them. But even if the teiephouss were not revenue producing, he would say that expenditure of money on telephones, was worth more than double the money it represented. If the farmers were to continue to do their business on t/he beat possible 'basis, it was necessaiy that they should keep in touch with distant mar kets. and it was in that way that the 'phones were valuable to the farmers at the prch'ince. In rural settlements, too, the.v were able to secure quicker response to calls for medical aW, afld thus to save life. These wer^ I advantages which could not be reckoned in dollars and cants. . He had always taken the view that a government-owned telephone system should be kept in an efficient state, and lhat capital. account should not be impaired. There were corporiitipns' which would pay much more than six millions for the provincial Jeiephone system, and give them a very large bonus in addition. (Cheers.) Figures were quoted by the Premier showing that in the past seven years,; $83,328,365 had been expended by the. proTinoial government, while the cost incurred by civil government, that is, for adminstration, was $l,14tj,694. Saskatchewan had - eipe^nded in i the same period ;$23,000;(M)b, and had spent on administration $1,165,000; while Manitoba ^had expendeid $26,-813,289-six millions less than Alberta-and the 'administration ..liad the ! cost $1.348,290-^Jr $200,000 more. ! On educalipniiitiiose seven yeai's and I the figures wei-e: Alberta, $2,539;00O; Saskatchewan, $2,294,000; .Manitoba," $2,318,000. For education e.T;pendflure: had been: Alberta, $2,204,000; Saskatchewan , $1,206,000; Manitoba, $885,000. Proud' Comparison Notwithstanding the' tiiuch greater amounts expended In Alberta for the benefit of the people at much less cost in government. Alberta had, during part of that time, only Ijaltthe popu-latioi of Manitoba and only two-thirds that of Saskatchewan.

Michener, As Ucual, Not Ready Kdward JUohener, leader of the Op-pooltion,' asked to have the debate adjourned. The Premier was at first unwilling on account of pressure of business, but yielded to Mr. jnoh*n-or's plea, and the House went into .oommlli>ee of ihc whole o" private legislation. Mr. Michaner has given notice that he will move on Monday that no writs for election be is�ued until after thirty days following dissolution. He will also move for a commission to inquire into thfl e.\pendllureB of the province. , � The Afternoon's .Work The afternoon was ow:upied in the. consideration of several important tinaacial resolutions in committee of the whole. These were in regard to raising $,^,000,000 for telephones for telephones and public works, raising interest on Canadian Northern securities to \ii pet cent, under 5uar.intee oi 1!�11-12, fixing rates to be Charged U� insurance companies operating within the province and for granting as�i.stance to the Alberta Farmers' I'llevator t'o-operative Co. When the pren�ier moved on behalf oi Hon. .Alalcolm McKen/.ie that the house do immediately resolve itself into a committee of the whole houss to consider a resolution respecting a bill to raise $5,000,000 on the credit of the province, the leader of the opposition, K. Michener, moved an amendment as follows : Knocker's Work "That this house do not resolve itself into committee to consider this bill until such time as there is presented by the governinenl a resolution of the dilTiculty into which the province has become involved in connection with the Alberta & Great Waterways railway." Mr. jTichener said the house was not warranted incurring further bonded indebtedness for $5,000,000 until they had settlement satisfactory to the house of the question which was costing the province $1000 per day interest. Not only were tliey having; icr pay that interest, but the province was, discredited in the eyes of the linancial world. Mr. .Michener said that interest charges on the debt of the province and on the bonds ot the A. & G. \V. Co., were $1,090,000, while if this ladditional loan was authorized interest charges would be brought up to $l,.'i4O,00"b.; or. sixty to sixty-live per cent, of ttie %hole of the provincial revenue frbrii/'local sources. The credit of the province today is in a deplorable condition, concluded Mr. Michener, "despite editorials of the government which try to prove that provincial credit has not been injured." The,, amendment was seconded by T. M. Tweedie, Calgary, who repeated the assertion of Mr. Michener that t-lie credit of the province was in a more deplorable condition than that of any other province in the Dominion of Canada or elsewhere. . Premier Siftpn in reply said not much attention need be paid to opin-tons-ot.the teal estate, journals from which the leader-of-.; the opposition had tjuoted. The business of the province was not; going to. stand still, nptwithstanding. what ,-i|iie opposition thought about the settlement of the A. & G. W. question. In order to carry on the public business of the province, it was necessary to raise money in the ordinary way. Members on the opposite side had even advocated an increase in the expenditure, not, .of course on accotint of the fact that there was going to be an election, but nierely in the interests of the public. Money had to be borrowed because the e.xpendilures could not be met out of the ordinary revenues of the country. The revetiues were increasing ia.st, hut money needed to be borrowed and it would be borrowed as was necessary for the development of the country.. The resolution which was to be considered in committee >f the whole WAS as follows : :"Resolved, that the Ijieutenant-Gov-ernor is hereby authoriked to raise by way of loan on the credit of the province a sum of money not exceeding five millions for the following purposes : � 'Carrying on public works authorized by the legislature, three million. 'for the construction of telephone lines, two million. "The-aforesaid sum of money may be borrowed for any term of years Ddt exceeding fifty at a rate of interest not c.vceeding four per ceat. per annum. Mr. Michener : "Will the bonds be sold at four per cent ?" Mr. Sifton ; "The bonds are not sold at a rate of interest, they are discounted." Mr. Michener asked why it,was pro-Posed to rai.se the rate of interest on the Caii^idian Northern railway securities to four and a halt per cent, The Premier : "I am very strpngly opposed to .raising the rate of interest of this province. I have no doubt that this raise in the rate of interest, is merely a temporary matter .and the matters the leader of the opposition has mentioned have no more to do with the interest on securities of this province, than have a lot of oth-ihiugi on ihe credii ot otliei; couu-, tries. The effect of the present financial condition, however, gives the leader of the opposition the deluded at ot to idea.tlMkt acts of this f;oyetnment,:atfc responsible, for something which , is aftectiiig the whole of the civilix^d world. "I repeat agftin," said the Premier, "that"the credit of this province is as good as t.h�fc of any other province in the Dominion, and bonds 61 the other provinces are selling at the satfne rates and for the a&rac kinds of securities. There never has been more than a cent to a cent and a half difference, and that difference is accounted for by the diflexence in date when they are to he paid. The rate of interest on good interest bearing bonds is not permanently raised, for the same thing has happened several times during the last thirty or forty years. The interest wUl go down again and the price of bonds will go up. Even if you have.to pay 4 5 per cent, or five per cent, discount you have settled the matter once and for all that your bonds are interest bearing the rate of four per cent. The house went into committee the whole and reported the bill raise five million on.the credit of the province after which the bill was read a lirst time. Hills raistne the rate of interest on C. N. R. bands, the bill respecting assistance to elevators, and in regard to insurance companies were also reported from committee of' the whole. The resolution affecting the insurance companies fixed the initial licence certificate ot registration or renewal for insurance companies doing business in the province at the following fees. Fire and lite $300, accident Guarantee $200, mutual $100, all other companies $100.
