Frank C Denison, United States consul In this city, the exports 'through the Fernie consulate for the quarter ending Mar. 31 to the Amwlcan side, totalled $534,000. As is to be; expected the greater part of this is. the value of coal 'which vyaa shipped from the local mines. The exports of this commodity reached a total of $472,000, while coke amounted to; liT.OOO. The value o� emigrants' effects was a little short ol $7000, and hides, horses and lumber aggregated; about $3000. . It is reported that the Crow'a Nest Pass Coal company are putting on every available 'man, and it is expected that'in a few'.weeks at least the output ot coal will he nearly doubled. "Sifton's power is surely flowing, Every day It's stronger growing. Sweeping oer the land." Sure. The campaign for Slfton and Progress proceeds apace. Everywhere the Premier has visited in? Southern Alberta his constructive policy, his campaign for a greater and more prosperous Alberta, has caught the ear of the crowds, and today the &ifton government is stronger in the South than ever hefore. � It will, therefore, he pleasing news to the people of liCthbridge,, who believe in a booster and not in a knook-er,ito know that the Wemier will appear in Lethbrldge In the interests of Liberalism on Thursday ;night, April 10.
