DATi.Y HERA Mi PAGE NEW AGRICULTURAL SCHOOL IN SOUTH Tl Govt Buys Land From R�y Knight Believed for That Pnrpoae Though oo announcement has been made olftotally at Edmonton, the Herald la ta receipt of Information that tlio agricultural school and demonstra-tion tarm, which It waa announced a year igo would bo established south of Lethbrldge, la to bo located at Raymond. Tho race for the school was a hot one between Kaymond, Magrath anl Warner.

EXPLANATION OF AN AUTO EMBARGO A Vast Amount of Money Used Up In Exchange on Drafta auch oommodlttea as aatomobllei. tiros, accessor!ea, pateit medicines, ellrarware, Jewelry, nrealcal instru-meats of all kinds, heota aid shoes, i-eady-made clothing, aaa, la fact, oy-ry article which can be manufactured In Canada. On Ceal Imports Also Borne of the local coal operators, talking to the Herald about this matter this morning pointed out that the use of America* coal in the wast tended to aggravate the exchange sit uatlon. I'Sit year there were import-ad In Western Canada from the Tin itod States 2,213.0W tons of American coal valued at |l,4iO,000. tt tho same amount of American coal Is brought In this year It will not only add by over 16,009,000 to the hn.'tnce of trade against ns, bat It will require nearly 11*0,000 to pay the exchange In transferring that amount of money to the American banks. And 1120.-000 would br.y nearly 30,000 tons of Alberta coal at tho pit-mouth, enough to keep a mine capable of producing 100 tons a day busy a whole year. it waa this state of affairs which was partly responsible for the passing of tho following resolution at the lust meeting of the Rocky Mountain branch of the Canadian Mining Institute In Pcrnle: "That this meeting of the Rocky Mountain branch of the Canadian Mining Institute Is of the opinion that i the government of the Dotri.ilon of Canada should consider diverting American coal to Ontario in auch quantities as the mines of Alberta are In a position to replace in the market*) of Manitoba and Saskatchewan." A copy of this resolution lias linen forwarded to Sir Robert L. Uordon, Hon. Martin Burrell, Minister of Mine*. Hon. A. L. Slfton, Minister of diatoms, and Mr. C. A. Magrath, Ki:�f Controller. Certainly the exchange question is beginning to come home to the people or Canada who are doing business with 1'. S. firms, and they quite understand the government's efforts to cat down Imports from across the line. L'H AN OPEN MARKET !
