Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 14, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE EIGHT THE I LETHBniDGE DATL\ HERALD rUESDAY, MAY II. 1*^ Faririers Ask Privilege of Addressing Commons Ottawa, May 14.-WKeii tho house net this morning, T. Vions. Lothlii-are, asked It representatives of iho larmers' organizations at present in lUe city interviewing the government had asked for an opportunity to lul-areas the house. Ho wanted to luiow 'i� the request would be pranteil and in hour fixed for the rnriners' repre-entatives to be heard. Speaker Rhodes announced that iic had received a eomniunioation t'lom li. H. Halbert, eluiiiman nf tlie farmers' organization in session here, making tho rcquc.deration of Labor, and which Bipressed the liopo that the democracy [indsor ' Table Salt THE CANADIAN SALT CO. LIMITEO of Canada would be likewise honored. Speaker KHodes said that it was a matter tor the house to decld\^ and that there was no precetlent. Lauricr's View. Sir Wilfrid Laurlcr said that the speaker had discharged his duty in 'conimunieating the invitation to the house. AVhatever action was taktMi must come from the leader of the government. He e.vpressed the view that the head of a Canadian organization had just as good a claim to be heard by parliament as the head of an organisation of anotlier country. Sir Wilfrid referred to tho fact that some years ago tho government of Canada liad received a large deputation of farmers from western Canada. Spealier Rhodes remarked that on that occasion llie gathering took place in tho house of commons chamber but the house was not in session. Sir Wilfrid suggested that the matter might stand over until Sir Robert was present. Sir George Foster, who was leadin.K the house, explained that Sir Robert llorden was at that moment engaged with the farmers' delegation and sn?:-gested tliat no action should be taken by the house in tiis absence. He promised to commnnicBte at once with the premier and threw out the suggestion that the farmers" representatives could be heard at six o'clock when thflMiouse adjourns for the dinner rece'Bs. This, ^le said, would put them on the SHme tooting as Mr. Gom-pers. wbo addressed the liouse during its adjournment. The house then resnmeri discussion of Hon. A. K. MacLeahVs resolution which provides for the meeting of maturing Canadian Northern, Railway securities. , S. Cahill of Pontiac asked who the stockholders were, - maintaining' that the people of Canada should know where the money to be advanced by tiie government is going. Mr. .MacLean stated that the gov- ernment wished to renew with' as small principal payment as possible the securities maturing this year. The legislation last year provided for an advance 'to the CnnatHan Northern Unllway not exccoding $25,000,000. "Where did it go?" asked Mr. Cahill. "The amount was expended Ilirgely in tho payment of secnrille.i falling due Inst year." rei)iieil Mr. .MacLean. Sir Wilfrid Laurier asserted that tho government was not treating the iiouse with proper respect hocaiise" It had not up to the present time made an anuonncenient as to it.* policy In regard to the C.N.R. Ho could not undotstand why there should bo nn.v objection to such a statement being made now. .Mr. Cahill had previously as.iierted tJiat if. the .government owns the C. N'.H. its management should be taken over; to which tho minister had replied that a new boated or directors would bo appointed as soon as "tho value of tho common stock has boon ascertained by the coniiulsslou now inquiring into tlie matter.

This frank admission is made by Mayor Hardie in a letter to the Brohm-McMuUen Co. of Minneapolis, agents for the Acme moior garbage truck which created spmewha: of a sensation among the citizens wlien it appeared on the streets some time ago. The luayor's letter to the sales manager of the motor truck concern is most frank and declares that it is up to the selling company to make a change in the bed or box. and thus remove tho !v criticism which has been heaped on' the heads of the council. Mr. McMul- j len replies stating tliat the new garbage bed is being forwarded, and as"!;-ing tho city to send back tho old box as soon as the new one is received. Tt ia more than likely, as n result of tho agitation started by tho aniaiga-ranted fair board, that the crowds at tho various e\hihltious on tlic Western Oanadit fair clrctiii will'see a real army aviator in action this summer. Wluit 1* more, the birdman who will make the ciroirit i( the arrangements are completed satisfactorily, will likely fly from one point to another and make.his landing on the fair grounds while'tho big" exhibitions are on. During tho winter, when recruiting tor the flying corps was first started In Lethbridge. it was suggested to the fair board^ Sheriff Young, chairman of the local recruiting committee of the Uoyal Flying Corps, that cxhibilions by an army aviator would do a great deal to iiulnce enlistment in a branch of the service which needs men in the worst possible way. Sheriff Young took tho matter up with Lieut. SlcNaniara ai Winnipeg, and Manager Moore of the fair bgprd was Instructed to negotiato with Ottawa. The result is that now data as to the distances between the various fal'" centres and the facilities for landirfg are being gathered and on tho report the flying corps will decide what can ho done. It is understood the proposal to fly from one place to another is snggegted in order to save the expense of taking down the nnichine and shipping by rail. It tlte scheme goes through It is culctilated to be one of the greatest features of the various fairs, and will no doubt do much to stiraulatc recruiting in the aerial wing of the fighting forces.
