Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 13, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE EIGHT HE LETHimiDGK DATtT HERALD rmmsDAY. EMDEU ralgary, Sepl. Alberta food control committee1! yesterday decided to mate an appeal to ihc lood control- ler lo make representation to the jov- crnmeai Tor the establishment ot a nifnlon Inland trade commission to; oversee iho relationships of iiroduccr.-, manufacturers and distributors, so as i to Insure greater fairness; for ihe re-i duction ol Import duties on liable-' tuenis and other ihfngs. and ihe aboli- tion ot war duty on foods; a reorgan- isation of Ihe fishing Industry under, government control, so as to prevent j tt'asie and reduce prices; and to laXe greater care in the conservation of IlTcStcci; used ler food. Hreolutions embodying these sug-1 gestions were ouilined by ihe 5Ubfoni-j tolttpc on conditions in Alberts yos-1 lerday morning, and were presented to 1 the Alberta food control committee sflcrnoon. Tho committee endorsed each ol !bese resolutions uu-1 animously after discussion. There was nlraosL no difiercnce o[ opinion on tiny ol the details. Speaking of the neeeEflly for reduc- ing all import dulles, and particularly the war duly on foods, Mr. Harry t Tweed, of Medicine Hat, called alien- lion to the curtailment ot producllor In many lines caused by the country being drained of Its young men for military ma- chines could be made lo take the plac- ts of men, they must be usefl, and the producers of the country should not bo hampered ia procuring these ma- chines by import duties, he declared. Mr. G" R, Marnocb, of Lethbrldge. who presided, referred in particular to the exorbitant duty on canned salmon, which -iras, la many cases, the only substitute for meat available to the farmers. Recenlly lie Canadian can- ning companies had heen able lo mset only eight per cent, of Ibe demard: The -were compelled to draw their supply from across the line acd lo pay a duty of per cent. On a case of salmon which costs ?1Q to the consumer in Seattle, the Alberta Earm- er-must pay per case duty. This not only raises the cost of imported salmon, -but also raises the price of the Canadian canned product to Ihe level. Mr. Marnoch pointed out Ibal similar conditions eilsied for maoy otber foojl products. The sub-committee on Alberta con- ditlons consisted of J. H. Lamb, Alei. Hoss, M.LJL.; If. L. Tweed and Fream, -with the secretary. Dean Howes, and tbc T ice-chairman G. R. j-Maxnoch, ei-officio.
