Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 3, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta 2" PAGE FOUR TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 1918 Xetbbvt^gc Iberalb Xetbbrt&ge, alberta OAIUY AND WEEKLY Proprietor* and Publl�f�or� THC LSTHBRIbas HERAUD PRINT-' INO COMPANY, UMITKD n Cth street South, Uethbrtdt* . _ W, A. ^ rrooidaat and Maoarinx Dlr�etor totui Tonancs  - Bustneti Managar TSLKPHONE* VvitncBi Oftica .............. till Ultonal omc� .............. 1U4 Subacplptlon Rata^: Daily, CeliTerad. por- week ,.... �** ttetly, delivered, per year .....JSw Dally, by malJ. per yww -------J�-0� Weakly, by snail, per year J'' Weakly, by mall, par year to U.S..U.W Datea ot expiry ot aubBcrlptionn! a,;' year dally of fitface wWdi Is jiromptlng the leaders ot the country's iudustrlnl and financial orgnnlzatious nt the present tinio to call for a national pol-factiiring munitions, to find some-Icy, and it is this call which makes it imperative for all classes in the community to examine very closely existing economic conditions in Canada, and to discriminate, It possible, between the tr\io ami false sources of the nation's wealth. Mr. Lambert then goes on to point out that, though Canada's coal resources are a wonderful so'.irco ot wealth, the coal deposits aro poorly distributed to serve Canada best in a manufacturing way. and as a rosult the �wonderful results in niuaitions-making have been achie.ved because the 450 factories engaged in war work have mostly been able to secure power from that enormous Caundiaa asset, water power, as developed into hydro-electric energy. Without the hydro-electric power system of Ontario it would have been impossible for hundreds ot factories aiid workshopi! employed in nianntac-. turing munitions of war to do what I tliey have done in the past four years. Unquestionably trio, the most valuable forest product of Canada is pulp-wood, which, with proper encouragement, should attract the newsprint industry ot North America to Canadian territory. Water-power will be the hand-maiden of the pulpwood industry. The war has also given ris a fuller approciation ot Canada's next most valirable natural asset, namely fish. The necessity of finding substitutes for beef and pork, has developed the fishing industry; and has shown that in fresh and salt w-dters, Canada has a source of wealth practically untouched. Agricultural lands, pulpwood forests, mines, fisheries, water power. These are the great sources of national wealth. Slanufacturing. in the long run, can only succeed in Canada as it assumes Its proper function and relationship with those resources. After the war, the industrial activities which will cost least and at the same time give the maximum ot results in the form of national income, must be aimed at, and be uifflertaken. The policy which will fill this pioneer country of Canada with a busy and industrious people, will be a truly national policy. The lines of least 'resistance must be sought in the nation's development, it the best economic results are to follow, and the burden ot ta.xation which will be upon Canada's shoulders at the conclusion of this war, must be distributed so as to induce and not impede such a development A Motto for Canada .Many years ago. Industrial Canada, 'the organ of the Canadian Manufacturers* Association, used to carry this quotation on its front page: "There be three things which make a country great-a fertile soil, busy workshops and easy transportation of .man.and goods from place to place." For Canada today, that is a tine motto. The soil of Canada must come first; and in the solution o� the national problem of finding a suitable policy for this country after the war. the sons of the soil ought to be prepared to take their big part. A.s i2s-President Roosevelt once said in discussing the problem of country life in the United States: "The working farmers themselves in the last resort will have to solve this problem for themselves; hut as it also affects in only lesi3 degree all the rest ot us, it is not merely our duty, but In our interest, to see if we can render any help towards making the solution satisfactory." So it should be here. With organized agriculture from East to 'West presenting its case for the best kind of national development after the -war, it will not merely be the duty, but in the interest, of every class in the country to assist in "making the solution satisfactory." IDENBURG URGES PEOPLE 10 FIGHT TO BITTER END Amsterdam, Sept. 2.-^Field .Marshal Von Hindenburg, in a birthday telegram to Chancellor Von Hertllng, says: "Germany Is fighting a hitter battle. In every renewed attacks our enemies are attempting to enforce a decisive-break-through in which they have up to the present failed. They will continue their useless attempts. "A severe tattle has still to be fought. The German people know what is at stake. They know that on the battle field of France and Flanders the German army is defending the sacred ground ,ot the fatherland. Rece.nt announcements by enemy statesmen, show purely and simply the will to annihilation and demonstrate to all ot us the fate which Germany has to expect If she Is not victorious in this battla.
