PROTEST ON PAPER
Premier Says Government
Interferes Only to Pro
By the Associated Press.
MONTREAL, December 19.—Pre
mier L. A. Taschereau stated today
that the Quebec government does not
mean to interfere between Quebec
newsprint manufacturers and their
cliente other than to protect the righto
and privileges of the public.
His comment was in reference to
an announcement yesterday by the
Newsprint Committee of the American
Newspaper Publishers' Association in
New York that If the Quebec govern
ment and certain Canadian bantu
"arbitrarily vitiated" contracts be
tween Quebec mills and United Statej
publishers, the association would "seek
other available and potential sources
The association was aroused by al
leged governmental Interference in an
agreement of the James MacLaren
Co.. Ltd., Buckingham, Quebec, bj
which it contracted to sell 30,000 torn
of newsprint to a United State# pub
lisher for less than the >42.50 price s
ton recently agreed upon as a stand
ard one by the majority of Canadian
Premier Taschereau stated suck
I cases as that of the MacLaren Co
hod been settled to the satisfaction
οf the government.
He said In conclusion, the only
way the government had of protecting
the interests of the population against
the depletion of natural resources for
the sole benefit of a "group of Indus
trialists and the American publishers
is to withdraw from the exploiters of
the Quebec forests, favors and priv
ileges granted so as to induce them to
pay reasonable wages to employes and
reasonable dividends to those who In
vested their savings In the Industry."
