B. R. Lawrence said today. The minister was questioned by Premier William Davis and five cabinet members. In an interview later, Mr. Lawrence said some paper work might be eliminated if the government paid an agreed lump sum to a hospital for a certain number of patients treated in an emergency ward, rather than having to deal with a multiplicity of individual claims under the provincial medical care insurance program. the parry and to outline party policies, Gerry Beck, Alberta vice - president, said in a news release today. "We will elaborate on the fears of western Canadians with regard to the federal government laws and regulations concerning the economic growth of western Canada, including the continued trend of Franconization of Canada," the release said. The western Canada Party was formed earlier this year. It has held one closed national meeting, in Edmonton last month, to elect executive for the four western provinces.

He hopes to spend bis 58th as mayor of Oklahoma's largest city. Denton, who was sentenced to die in 1934 for the slaying of a former wife's boy-friend, is one of eight candidates seeking the Oklahoma City mayor's post. His death sentence was commuted to life in prison. He was paroled in 1950 and officially pardoned in 1964. "I have time for one last service to my fellows," he says. "I'm gotag to just listen to everybody's troubles and help them if I can." And that philosophy sums up the simple platform Denton put together while serving 16 years in prison and later working as an insurance man, painter, taxi-cab driver and roofing contractor.

Russell Horsbnrgh, reinstated as a minister of the United Church of Canada in January, says be is dying of cancer but he is not afraid of death even though he does not believe in an afterlife. "I confess that I'm not at all afraid of death," he said in an interview.

Mr. Davis told a news conference a writ has been issued seeking $25 million for general damages and another $10 million to pay for the cost of dredging the bottom of the waterways to remove the pollutants. Under a mandatory order requested in the suit, the companies would have the option of removing the existing polluting materials, or give the province $10 million to do the job. It is the first time the province has attempted to sue a company in relation to mercury pollution of provincial waterways. Attorney-General Allan Lawrence, who attended the news conference along with George Kerr, energy and resources minister, said the suit would be a test case before the Ontario Supreme Court. If the suit is successful, suits may be launched against other polluters. Mr. Davis said the government was forced into its decision by the failure of Dow to co-operate in resolving "all matters." Dow had indicated early last year that it was prepared to help those who suffered damage and to co-operate in other ways. But Mr. Kerr said the company informed the province last summer "they couldn't co-operate." The damage action also seeks an order to prevent the company from continuing "any process that would create further pollutioin." Mercury pollution was first discovered in the St Clair system a year ago and led to a federal ban on the export of fish from those waters. Since then, the federal and provincial governments have co-operated in establishing loan funds to help fishermen affected by the Ashing ban.
