TUESDAY, MARCH 15, 1921 FJRST SECTION7 NUMBER 79 Declares in Commons it Is One of Needs in Develop- ing Cauda'g Resources FINANCIAL AIH, IS THE GREATEST NEED OTTAWA, March (By Canadian Prut) The House spent Monday more listlessly perhaps, than usual. In the discussion pf natural resources, Captain Manioc of Fort William and Halay River brought the snbject lie- fare the home last Cession and again today. It was vOpt. Maaton who In- troduced the subject. He. had a motion urging UK advisability of the govem- inent bringing forward a policy, having for Ita object llie development of the natural resources of Canada. He em- pnastxtd the importance of Canada's undeveloped .resources from Iron ore to the possibilities at tbe reindeer in tiustrj in the wilderness of the north. A. pound of he eidalmcii, "is worth a ton of oratory." While not binding himself to any particular source, he suggested aj possible .means of development: Tariff protection to encourage iron ore prodnction AMlitanee to anil co-operation yitli private corporations and a thorough investigation Into the entire iltuatiou. There was aii evidence of niggard- ness and the captain, stated, amid mnch laughter, that the geographical parties contained cooks who were paid as much at technical expnrta. Many western men held the floor for a great part of the day. Dr. Cowan of Retina sneaking from governmtnt benches, declared that Champagne fazz Hold Sway in DuSseldorf DCSBELDOHF1, March nliht-long revelry In which Ger- man civilians, German police and French, British and Belgian sold- freely fraternise, holds un- interrupted sway in Duaaeldorfs gay >nnch halls ud wine restaurants. The curfew regulation! tnpooea by the French commandant have beea lifted. Popping ot cham- pagne corks, the screeching of music and the strident voices of girl entertainers continue until after the soldiers roll out of their bnnki for reveille. The ehlaf body-of soldiers is still held barracks but many of the men manage to Insure turaal gafoty with their officers who are trammeled with few re- strictions. The occupying forces vie 'with each other and with the Germans for dances with pretty girls, or permission to pnrchase for them, and tbe hard working orchestras are kept busy satisfying appeals for favor- ite national dance tanea. "German police view the merry making-from rims of bubbling wine glasaes and make no sign of Interference if, u bap- pens on ram oeeutons, misunder- standings threaian disorder. The night crowds appear to lake the occupation and the occu- piers In cheerful spirit and the proprietors of the amusement places, with, molt elaborate cour- tesies, are unable to conceal their delight at the steady piling up of profits. C.P.R. Will Undertake No New Project Requiring Capital Expenditure Till The Conditions Are More Settled WINNIPEG. Mar. Canadian Pacific Railway has de- cided that no new project involv- ing expenditure un capital ac- count will bo undertaken in the west until business conditions are more said D. C. Cole- man, vice-president in charge of western linos today. Mr. Cole- man has been in the east confer- ring with head office officials. "There is no occasion for gloom or despondency about the future of Western Canada, hut Cana- dians at the moment certainly de- mand that business enterprises- shall be prudence and caution." Mr. Colcman stated. "If the situation clears up a bit later in the year we liavc in mind a reasonably program of improve- ments and extensions but, for the time being any action in connec- tion with that piwram ir, defe'r- red." Asked as to what the acliaa uf the C.P.R. would be regarding wages, Mr. said "the Can- adian railway! have not taken any steps up to the present in connec- tion with a general wage adjust- ment. Of course, any genera! movement in connection with the wages of railroad labor on this continent has tended hitherto to be international in its applica- tion." The Principals in the Murder Case at Macleod FIVE BURN PULLMAN PUEBLO, Colo, March Five nereons were burned to death when a rear Pullman car Denver and Rio Grande Railroad caught fire early this morning between Pueblo and Wilson- burg. The origin of the fire is j unknown. etpansion. Member on Irrigation "All the Klondike: of the north lave not been discovered." echoed Dr. Thompson of the Yukon, and W. A. Buchanan, Lethbrldge, speaking from cross benches argued that devel- opment was being retarded by the lirescst uncertainty in control over western natural resources. Irrigation was the necessity for the arid and uemi-arid belts of Alberta and Saskat- chewan. The development of natural resources, declared Hon. R. Leinleui. expressing a liberal view should be the A. B. C. of government. Natural Control V. A. Buchanan. Lethbridge, said that n-hether or the control orthe nat- ural resources WAS in the hands of the. Dominion or provincial govern- ment must be immediately decided. The. present situation was retarding development. Beoet for Alberta Coal DeaUng with the situation in Alber- ta. Mr. Buchanan placed figures on the c5al supply of that province before the house. This statement showed that Alberta had CC9.COO.OOO tons of an- thracite, tons of bitum- inous coal and .probably a grand total of tons. Alberta had eighty-sir per cent, 'of the coal resources of Canada. 61 per cent, of the coal resources of the British Em- pire and 14 cent, ot the coal re- sources of the world. The production H. A.

Some person unknown .entered Bow island Drug and Stationery store on Saturday night and extracted therefrom six of real good Scotch and made good their es- cape. The parties or wire certainly endowed with a great thirst as they did not take any- thing but the liquor. The entrance was 'from the rear of the building and by breaking the glass and it would appear they were fully acquainted with the inside of the building and knew where to 90 and get whit they wanted. The police are working on sev- eral clues and hope to have the guilty 'party shortly. Edmonton New Rcf ulatioas Set Artie OTTAWA, Bar. A. Mackie Edmonton, Introduced in the house 'of common's last night, his re- solution asking the house to declare regulations governing the Kenzie river oH district detrimental to the development of the industry anl discouraging to private enterprise.
