The Star-Phoenix Goes Home. SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN, FRIDAY, APRIL 26, 9 3 The Star-Phoenix Goes Home. OfTwoMen MacMillan and Anderson Expected to Ask for Federal Nomination MEETING ON MONDAY JiNTRY OF THIRD CANDIDATE IS POSSIBLE; PRESENT MEMBER SURPRISED Saskatoon Conservatives ' likely will have a choice of two men for Federal honors when they gather on Monday evening for their nominating convention. F. It. MacMillan, the present member, and Dr. J. T. M. Anderson, former Premier of Saskatchewan, have indicated their intention of seeking the nomination. DARK HORSE MENTIONED While other names have been l mentioned In current political gos- sip, it Is understood the main forces of the Conservative Party are aligned behind Mr. MacMillan and Doctor Anderson. There are however rumors of a possible dark .horse from the younger ranks who ' might attempt to slip in between f the two main contestants. Mr. MacMillan, approached by the Star-Phocnix this morning, expressed the surprise he had felt on his return from Ottawa the beginning of the week to find he probably would be opposed at the con-f vention. Ho had taken for granted, he intimated, that his work at Ot-y tawa had secured him the confi-.. dence of his constituents and that he again would be the Conservative standard-bearer. Asked if ho would be in the field, Doctor Anderson replied, My reply must be Yes. If I am nominated, my name will go before the convention. He declined further comment, OrEN CONVENTION Both men have enjoyed a close friendship during many years and it is common knowledge that Mr. MacMillan was one of Doctor Andersons main supporters both when the latter was leader of the small Opposition of three before the 1929 election and when he afterwards became Premier. Monday evening's convention will be open. Each voter, in the accus-1 tomed manner, will be required to sign a pledge to support the policies and principles of the Conservative Party, and the candidate named. The gathering will be held in Third Avenue Church. Registration of delegates will start at 8 o'clock and the convention proper will start at 7 oclock. Besides Mr. MacMillan who probably will give a review of his stewardship at Ottawa since 1930. prin-j cipal speakers will Include Hon. R. ' B. Hanson, recently appointed minister of trade and commerce; W. 3. Ernst, K.C., M.C., member for Queens-Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, one of the younger members of the House of Commons and a Rhodes scholar; and J. T. Hackett, B.C.L., K.C., member for Stanstead, Quebec, a leading Montreal barrister. POINTS TO SERVICES Stating his reasons for seeking v the nomination Mr. MacMillan pointed out that early in his work i as Federal -member he was instrumental In securing the Nineteenth Street subway for the city at a smaller cost to the city than any other public work had cost a municipality in Canada. The member also pointed out that differences that had existed between the Federal Government and j Saskatoon municipal authorities over the relief store about which there had been unsuccessful negotiations during a period of 18 months, had been settled by himself when the city appealed to him recently. He was able to adjust the matter with a gain to the city of some (13,000 more than had been anticipated. ", While the Canadian National Railways was not in politics, the member also had impressed on the management the need for opening the Bessborough Hotel at this time. He had not pressed for it before as local hotelkeepers, taxpayers in the sum of some (75,000, had been entitled to as much business as they could get in bad times. Now, however, there were definite indications qf Improvement and amended liquor laws would aid in giving Support to the hotels. -The opening of the new hotel would bring great benefits to the city. Mr. MacMillan pointed out that - he had secured the appropriation for the Ceepee Bridge after two years of working and in the face of strong opposition among those in high authority at Ottawa. ' Referring to the possibility of a pedestrian subway between the important business sectors of the West Side and Second Avenue, the member felt the project was one that might be included in a works program with funds to come on equal shares from the grades crossing fund, the municipality and the Government. He looked on present conditions as a marking time period and the better part of wis-' "dom on the part of the city would be to prepare for the upturn of business and connect the two business sections of the city with an added link. - The Weather At t oclock this afternoon the Star-Phoenix thermometer registered 68 degrees. University of Saskatchewan readings at 8.15 o'clock this morning; Temperature, 45.7; barometer, 30.17; humidity, 42.

Special to the Star-Phoenix REGINA, April 25. Appeal of Stephen H. Mitchell, Saskatoon printer, who was injured in an auto-1 bicycle colision in April, 1934, was being heard by the Appeal Court Thursday. Judgment was reserved. Mitchell brought suit for (10.000 against Samuel J. Adlam, Saskatoon. He claimed negligence on Ad-lams part when Adlams car hit his bicycle.

His throat slashed and an ugly gash in his left wrist, D. G. Lyon, liquor vendor of this town who had been missing since 10 oclock Wednesday morning, was found shortly after 6 oclock tonight by Constable M. Medlyn, R.C.M.P. officer of Ituna, lying beside a slough a half mile east of the town.

When he was found he was in a critical condition and was weakened by loss of blood from the wounds which were inflicted by a razor but he called out a greeting to the policeman whom he recognized. It is believed Lyon, who is an ex-soldier, 49 years of age and the father of one son, has been worrying over financial difficulties. Civil Servants Will Be Fired Debt Adjustment Board Staff To Be Cut ; Rumors Flying Thick in Regina Special to the Star-Phoenix REGINA, April 25. A number of civil servants are slated to get the blue ticket the end of this month. While no definite number could bo determined Thursday, the group included three from the Department of Agriculture, one from the old age pensions department and a number from the staff of the Debt Adjustment Board. Rumors that approximately 100 were slated to go were freely circulated about the city but Government information did not confirm this rumor. Indications were that less than half that number would be affected. Hon. T. C. Davis, K.C., attorney-general. said reductions of staffs in the Debt Adjustment Board office would be effected. This was made necessary because the decentralization of administration of debt adjustment work, lightening the work at the head office. When Saskatoon Was Younger From the FI lee of the Phoenix and the Star TWENTY YEARS AGO April 26. 1915. Mr. Justice Newiands opened an inquiry here Into alleged corruption in connection with a byelection held In the Rosthern Federal constituency the year before, at which W. B. Bashford, Liberal, was elected. The first witness, J. H. Hamm, declared that he had received a note from the successful candidate with Instructions to take It to the committee rooms. Witness said he had later received (2 from R. J. Wells. Mr. Wells denied that the money had been given because of the note initialed by the candidate. W. W. McKim who claimed he owned the property along which the street approached the Traffic Bridge threatened to close the street until his claim against the city was settled. TEN YEARS AGO April 26, 1925. According to the Manitoba Free Press crop report, seeding conditions throughout the three Prairie Provinces were the most favorable for several years. Work was 10 days in advance of the previous year. All service clubs In the city began a drive to raise (6.000 for the construction of a swimming pool.

Gordon against a King's Bench Court Judgment that denied her a divorce, for which she sued Herbert M. Gordon, Saskatoon. Evidence was that the husband admitted infidelity to his wife upon questioning and did the same when he saw his wifes counsel. Chief Justice Brown, in refusing a decree nisi, said that it would be very dangerous to grant a decree on evidence of this character. Third appeal on which judgment wss reserved was that of Clarence and John Kaasa, Cabrl, against the decision allowed Alfred Castagner, Swift Current. Castagner sued the Kaasa family for damages occurring in a motor car crash in 1931. Castagner won but before the judgment, it is claimed, John Kaasa transferred his share of property to his brother, Clarence. He then moved to the Peace River country. Castagner issued a writ of execution against John Kaasa and served it upon him at Baldonell, B.C., just over the British Columbia-Alberta border. Kaasa then claimed the writ had not been served properly because he was a resident of B.C. A King's Bench judge denied his application in chambers on this ground Kaasa appealed.

Mr. Halliday will be heard during the second annual provincial conference on social work, which is being held in Regina today. Commenting on an editorial in a Regina newepaper which urgea opponents of capital punishment to consider the victim of a murder and the feelings of a victims kin, Mr. Halliday observed that this argument stressed the revenge motive, which should be absent from a civilized Christian community in its dealings with wrongdoers. Boy Hasn't Chance to Lead Normal Life, Sobbing Mother Says in Juvenile Court A plucky little boy standing In the Juvenile Court this morning before Magistrate F. M. Brown, temmed a flood of tears with one puny fist, and promised that he would not steal again. The child, under weight for his 14 years of age, dressed In overalls and a tattered blue sweater, stood at attention to give hie answers, frankly and with becoming manners. But back of, and beyond the trial, tragedy stalked, Ironically sneering at that old bromide, often accepted as a truism, that all men are born-equal.

Referring to the announcement that building of a bridge at Ceepee would be carried out, Mr. MacMillan stated that the work would go forward at the earliest possible date. He mentioned that the plana could have been put through at Ottawa sooner, but that the Liberals had spent so much time talking on the subject that work could not move forward until May.

A new association of western Canadian livestock producers will have to he formed if Saskatchewan adopts the proposed livestock marketing plan under the Natural Products Marketing Act. Meeting in Regina all day today, first with Hon. Robert Weir, Dominion minister of agriculture, and later with Dr. R. G. Barton, deputy minister, the provincial marketing committee decided that, under the proposed scheme, a new producers' association would be necessary. The association niUHt, they argued, be adapted to the needs of Western Canada. It will form a legal structure through which the local marketing board may be selected from time to time, thus insuring producer control and responsibility. Committee members backed a resolution urging assurance of a new association on other provincial marketing boards considering the proposed marketing plans. The resolution read: After full discussion of the change in the livestock marketing scheme suggested by the Department of Justice, the members of this committee are Btill of the opinion that an association, as incorporated in the scheme approved March 15, is essential and, therefore, recommend to the executive of this committee that the members thereof, in conference with representatives of the committees of Alberta and Manitoba, emphasize the necessity of adherence to this policy." Arrangements are being made for a conference of executive representatives of committees of Manitoba, Alberta and Saskatchewan to be held in Regina.

Cronkite of the University of Saskatchewan discussed the rights of the beneficiary with relation to the Bankruptcy Act in his address titled "Insurance Ijjw." S. 8. Squarebriggs traced the beginnings of industrial life insurance and diHcussed developments in that particular type of Insurance, i The cost of the industrial policy was not so great aa that of the ordinary life insurance policy, the speaker stated. The policy carried double indemnity and disability clauses and dividends paid weie on a par with those paid for other types of insurance. Mr. Squarebriggs developed the thought that life insurance companies were safeguards to the health of the nation. It was to the benefit of Insurance companies to decrease the death rate of a country and those insurance companies which had sold industrial Insurance. had been of great service in distributing health pamphlets. W. A. Kennedy. C.L.U., Dominion president, discussed the "Mirrors of Life. There were five different methods through which the prospective buyer of life insurance could he approached, he stated.

Norman Not Entitled to Use Union Printing Label, Is Charge j There is only one printing shop in Saskatoon that is entitled to use the union label of the Allied Printing Trades, Fred Gordon, delegate from the typographical union told members of the Tiades and Labor Council Wednesday night. This came as a surprise to most of the members of the council as several of them protested that the firm opei-ated by G. W. Norman was still using tlie union label. Mr. Gordon stated that because Mr. Norman had been unable to pay his union men their wuges, these men had been unable to pay their union dues and so had been dropped from the international organization. Mr. Gordon was immediately asked why the firm was allowed to continue the use of the label. LETS OUT SECRET I am going to let you into a secret, Mr. Gordon replied. There was certain legislation which we wanted at the last session, so we allowed Mr. Norman to continue using the union stamp in hopes that he would help us in the Legislature." Continuing, Mr. Gordon stated the desired legislation had not been forthcoming. Since then, Mr. Norman had been asked to give up the union label in his possession. This he had refused to do, Mr. Gordon charged. As the label was copyrighted, Mr. Gordon said, there would be no difficulty in getting the stamp returned when the Allied Pryiting Trades Council went after it. The whole discussion started when the typographical delegate chal- Gives Explanation On May Day Matter Labor Council Not Sponsoring Celebration, Is Response To Danylchuk In reply to tho statement made yesterday by J.

The invitation to the Trades and Labor Council was issued by J. J. Egge, member of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, T. Carter, member of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen and J. E. Tobin, member of the International Alliance of Theatrical Staff Employees. If Mr. Egge, Mr. Carter and Mr. Tobin and the organizations they represent are even CommuniHUcally inclined, it certainly is news to the Trades and Labor Council, said Gerald Dealtrv, secretary of the council, this morning. Cyril Harding, representative of the Communist Party, said today: We willingly absolve Mi. Danyl-chuk of any guilt of paiticlpalion in working class activities. We would suggest, however, that he take further courses In mind-reading before rushing Into the pi ess as the only disorders which exist in connection with May Day exist In the mind of Mr. Danylchuk. The Communist Party la glad to be able to co-operate with the recognized trade unionists and the progressive Ukrainians in the celebration of the day initiated as Iibnr Day by the American Federation of Labor."

South Still C a n Raise Best Wheat Stricken Section Will Come Back, Premier Gardiner Says NEED DECENT PRICE HISTORY OF PLAINS TOLD AT MEETING OF LIFE UNDERWRITERS HERE Convinced that there was no place in the world better fitted to the needs of raisins a family than southern Saskatchewan, and emphasizing the need of a systematic method of saving money in order to meet recurring difficulties. Premier James G. Gardiner last night addressed a banquet attended by members and guests of the Saskatoon Life Underwriters Association, in congress here, BEST WHEAT More than 150 persons attended the affair, held In the King George Hotel dining room. S. S. Squarebriggs, president of the local association, preaided and W. A. Kennedy, C.L.U., Dominion president of the Life Underwriters Association, His Worship the Mayor, and A. J. Trotter, Board of Trade president, sat at the head table. The Premier traced the history of that section of the Province which lately had become known as the drouth area." Taking an oblong sheet of paper, he folded it diagonally to represent the division between the northern moist section and the southern dry sector. The dry section, he commented, was on the third steppe of the Prairies, about 3,400 feet above sea level That country, due to ita higher altitude, could support only grasses, whereas territory a short distance away, yet lower in altitude, could support huge trees. It was on that high land that the world's best wheat was produced, the Premier claimed. The wheat waa harder and more rich in protein, due to the fact that, it received a minimum amount of moisture. Experience over an 18-year period of wheat producing In the southern section of the Province had taught farmers there that climatic conditions were variable. It had been shown that it was possible for a crop failure to occur one year and the very next year a bumper crop t might he reaped. Agriculturists I must learn to store up during the 1 good years to provide for the lean ones, the Premier stressed. Up lo 1928 that section of Saskatchewan had produced more wheat than the Federal Government would allow to be exported. TURN TO PAGE 10 COLUMN 3 A.
