SECOND SECTION Irrigation Development Association Urges Sir James Lougheed To Proceed With Surveys Pending Water Decision PAGE ELEVEN Board of Trade Hears of Efforts Hopes C. Clisrlesworth Left On Irrigation Work At the weekly luncheon at the Hoard of Trade here today President Ktrnocb referred to the telegrams tilt havs passed between kirn an chairman at the Irrigation Develop- ment ic3ociation, and the minister of (ateriov, Sir Jamei Lougheed, during rho past few days. Replying to Mr. Mirnoch's message which appeared In issuo Sir James wired: "The dominion government has rftmo mud will continue to da all In Us power to expedite a decision by the international Joint commission In the St. Mary's-Milk River cage. Becent efforts to effect a fair compromise ot the differences have failed becauie of the refusal of the United Status to concede anything material. The pros- pect of an early decision is not hape- ful, as two new commissionera have recently been appointed by the Unit- ad States. They -will probably ask for time' to become acquainted with thy merits of the caso." In reply to this message- Chairman wired again "While-the news of still further de- lay in settlement of international vater question Is exceedingly disap. pointing, it is hoped that our reclam- ation service will push surveys tu completion this season so that immed- iate progress may be made whenever solntloa is reached." Doesn't Affect All To correct an impression that ap- pears to obtain that the division of tte wilera affocts all of the irriga- tion projects except the Lethbridge Northern, it was necessary to point out, said Mr. Marnoch, that the Unit- ed district, west of Cardstou. which bring acres under irriga- tion, and the South Macleod district wWch will have some or acres under the canals, will draw their water from the Waterton and Belly rivers, which are all-Canadian streams. Neither will it affect the acres east ot the Lethbridge Horthern, which will get water either by an extension of that project, draw- tag further upon the Canadian Old Man river, or possibly by some ar- rangement by which water could bo sot from the river, through the Canada LatJ ,iud Irrigation Co.'s canals. The great projects which are affect- by the international question aro those around Warner, New Dayton and eastwards towards Foremost, and the further .extensions that nre contemplated around Taber and on to Grassy Lake. Regret Charleiworth Move Referring to press dispatches which have seemed to Indicate that L. C. Charlesworth mignt be removed from his duties as chairman of the Irrigation Council to another office, President Marnoch said such a pro pos'al could not be viewed with equanimity. Mr. Charlesworth, he said, had become fully familiar with all the varied aspects of the great irrigation works that were to be es- tablished, he hoped, very soon; and bad developed a wise and sympathetic and comprehensive grasp of all the varied matters that would be involv- ed in their inception. He felt that it was absolutely necessary that Mr. Charlesworth should not be detached from this very" important work. the joint name; of himself and his wife, and the plaintiff is yet the hold or of these bonds.

Defendant did not appear, it being stated by bar Connie! that she WM expecting to be confined shortly, and le admitted that she had gone astray since she left her husband. In regard to the bonds Us Lord- ship ruled that should be paid the wifo, in grunting the dissolution of marriage asked for by the husband. The custody of tho child was given the husband. The present action was the aftermath of "a suit which was heard before Mr. Justice Walsh, when the plaintiff made an application for the custody of the child who had been stolen from him by his wife after SPECIAL EASIER ff ANTELOPE RESERVE AT NEMISCAM EXTENDED I Easier Messages and Special Music Suitable to Occasion Will Prevail I For the past two years an antelope reserve 1ms been maintained uear N'emfscarti and according, to an Ottawa .lis- patch til in reurvc is being en- enUrfcd to acres.
