Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 31, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta 1'0 PAGE FOUR Xetbbti^ge Detalb DAILY AND WEEKLY our they will better serve tiielr 4ay and generation hy selecting, troubled waters to receive their libation and avoiding smouldering fires." illeferring to'the charge of seeking to establish a monopoly in fuel the British Ambasaadtn' after, referring to reports "in some nefl^spapers of magazine that Britain has acquired aq oil monopoly and proposes to hold the world to ransom," said 70 per cent, of the world's output was frdm . American Boil and 16 per cent, froip Mexico^ American capital cpntroiling three-fourtha of the Mexican yield. In addition,: he declared, Americans were aeeklng oil in at least 10 other countries, but regardless of those opelra-tiotts, he concluded, "you have 82 per cant. 9f the present world supply of oil under your contjwl." For the future of the peace of the world and for the functioning of the liSague of Nations for this purpose, it Is well that not only certain in the States, who for their own political purposes are seeking to bring about an estrangement between the BSnpire and the Republic, but the world in general ahould know that the paths of Great Britain are the paths of peace. 6ir Auckland Geddes made tliis fact evident when in answering what he characterized as "wild duck" publica-tions as to B^tish purposes, he dea'it first with the British Navy, saying that while more than 1,000 ships, including four battle cruisers, were under construction when the armistice was signed, one cruiser, the Hood, too far advanced to permit cancellation, was the only major ship completed. "We have not a single capital ship building or completing, and not one ship, large or small, has been laid down since the armistice," he said. The British army and air force had been "even more drasUcally" dealt with. Sir Auckland continued: It was with something of irony , which the occasion called for when the Ambassador added "It is no business of mine to compare these facts with the corresponding action of any other nations, hut I ask yon who know yourselves to be nonmilitarist ,:to contrast them with your own national acts if you are inclined to think England mUltarist." Oregon. The circumstance shoira that the man considered that the issue was bigger then hia own personality. This is an index of the attribute of what is contained in the phrase "a hig man." It Is stated that Herbert Hoover requested cessatioD of all effort in bis behalf in the primary canipaign in Oregon, according to the construction placed by ^Chester G. Murphy, his State campaign chairman, upon Mr. Hoover's telegram to him. Murphy declared the request would be heeded and that no further effort in Hoover's behalf would be made in Oregon, although it was too late to have his name taken off the primary ballot. He based his action on this paragraph from Mr. Hoover's message : "I understand there are five candidates on tbe Republican ballot (in Oregon), all Of whom have friends. Some of these candidates are for and some against the'League, No one of these candidates can withdraw. Con-i sequently there will be a great aplit In the votes between nlere names, resulting in the clouding of the vital issues. The total vote recorded against the 'no league' candidates may give some indication of Oregon's views and every effort should be dU reeled to this end, rathisr than to the advancement of my name.^' ; Mr. Hoover^is a firm, believer in .the League of Nations. The only caiidl^ date of importance before the elector? ate of the'Sta:te of Oregon was Senator Hiram Johnson, who is strongly opj^ posed io the League. In asking" for the withdrawal of his name there is good ground for surmise that Mr. Hoover desired the opportunity of the defeat of the "no league" candidate, which would not perhaps have been possible in the further splitting of the vote the submission of his own namd wouid occasion. With the price of bread going up with other commodities, the necessities of yesterday become the luxuries of today, With all the irritation that taxes are causing these days, It is a very difficult ndatter to "keep smiling." This injunction should change its name to "Grin and bear it." With the 8ky-�azing caused by the flying machine having become a local institution, the .people of Lethbridge are becoming . a stift-necked generation. "Glad you are mayor", must have been the regular form of congratulation tendered Camille Gladu who has just been elected mayor of Eastview, Turks have! expressed their determination to'destroy Thrace by fire rathei-than allow it to fall into the hands of the Greeks. , In other words they mean to leave no trace of it "Alberta. coal for Ontario" is the tune which "Old IQng Cole," that merry old soul, is calling on his fiddlers three to play at this time. It should become.a popular tune. Western coal for eastern CJanada is a policy of mutual benefit to both parts of the Dominion. This is an important fact which should have a bearing on the internal economic ^licy of the day. Whether women should smoke or not may be an open question but there is a strong appeal in the argument of the woman who said she did not smoke because she "didn't want to get the ashes in the cooking." Ethel Ferrier of Spokane was granted a divorce on her testimony that her husband would not talk to her. Most women would have welcomed the monopoly Mrs. Ferrier seems to have had in conversation. If all public men appreciated the importance of irrigation in the measure 'Mr. C. A Magrath emphasized it in his public utterances in the city it should not be long before irrigation comes to be regarded aa a national policy. Mr. Hoover declares that the decrease of agricultural production in the States may result in that country becoming dependent on overseas food supplies. This is a grave warning and applies equally to Canada. It urges the necessity of tbe removal of all handicaps which tend to discour-age production. The handicaps of Nature on farming are bad enough without the artificial handicaps Imposed by a tariff on the implements of husbandry. THE MAN AND THE ISSUE Herbert Hoover has, in the great part he played in the war, showed bimaelf to be a big man. That he is the big man still, as he is universally acknowledged to have been in the practical faahion he handled the problem of feeding starving Europe devast-ed by the enemy, is proved by the action he took in regard to his name being submitted as Presidential candidate in the primaries in the state of A TUNNEL UNDER CHANNEL LIKELY In order to expedite a decision respecting the construction of a tunnel under the English Channel, a deputation of the channel tunnel committee of the House of Commons recently called upon the Prime Minister. His attention was called to the fact that no serious engineering difficulties were anticipated; that the time npces sary for the completion would be five years and the total cost would be $155,728,000 or double the pie-war estimate. There was said to be great onthusiasm for the scheme in France. TODAY'S QUESTIONS 1, How came the iiame tariff? 2. What is a pome comitatus? ii. What is the oi-lgih of the name nicotine? 4.
