In large type on the front page of his local organ' he makes an endeavqr to assert the truth of IiiS charge that the Edmonton and Dunve-gan Railway taps the timber limits bwned by T. A. Burrows, "brother-in-law of'Siftbn." - Mr^JBurrows is really the brother-in-law of Clifford Sif ton. But the use of the words quoted is merely oiie of Mr. Mlchener's little tricks for misrepresenting facts. It is a puny attempt to cause those not in the know to imagine'that the relationship be-' tween Mr. Burrows .and the Premier is nearelr than it really is., It is worthy of ihe man, who makes it. . ' ' , ' ' Mr. Michener gives the area in figures of the "timber berths owned by T.. A. Burrows, and located on the Athabasca River and tributaries, which ai-e tapped by the Ethnonton and Dunve-gan Railway, crossing the Athabasca River." They are as follows: 37, 45, 22, 82, 37 and 49 square miles. "Which, wh^n itor tailed, any schoolboy will find comes, to 272. Then proceeds Mr. Michener to say "the balance, 505 square miles, lies further south." From these statements he arrives at the deduction that 'This clearly shows that over one-half of the timber limits own-; ed by Mr. Burro'n;s find their outlet on the Athabasca, and Avill be conveniently served by the Edmonton and Dunvegan Railway." , ^' , � � -��__I_ .:v^^ V^'.Vl: Rdal Estate.and l]pvei||:m^nts c^ilKs of Moriiin_ P^iSitfilMil'iSherlock Bldgw P.O.Box 1979 Phone 1291 :-f^ RIIVC FOUR REAL �r^^\^\J'U pKJ ID-GqOD CORNEJRS r; TWOfplf VMIETEEiTH STR]2ET NOETH (on Oar Line).. : 'B'4^v.4B3^^3^;ois d^^^^^^ 46, for $^,000 , Blk. 169; Lots 25 to 28 for $3,000 TWO OOENERS HALF A BLOCK EitOM CAE LUSTIt.
