Representatives were present iron Coleman, Pincher Creek, Frank, Cow ley and Macleod. Judging from ex pressions the league has come stay and when this present difficult} is righted will take up other vita makers affecting this district. The convention was a success in everj way. At noon the delegates were en tertained at a luncheon. They then adjourned to the hall, where resolu tions given below were passed after a of discussion and amend The following are officers of the organization: Alex. eron, Colemau; vice president, Chas Piucher Creek; Secretary, C 'L. Ouimette, Coleman; executive coin mittee, L. Grady, Macleod: Mark Drumm, Frank; Hugh Gunn, Cowley. Each town was assessed five lars to create a fund for the league; later regular yearly assessments- wilj be made. The League will take up the grievance with the Government un- til action is taken. The following are the resolutions passed: Whereas, coal nv.ning .n-l try of the Crows Nest Pass sectrm of Alberta and farming and ranching in tereste of Southern Alberta are iously handicapped in the regular course "of operations and business hd further development, of induct: greatly impeded by. the need-of com- petitive railway transportation I' whereas '.jihe Government of Alberta in its wisdom has undertaken Jc pr mote the construction of; increase! railway facilities by guaranteeing the bonds of certain-railway .corporAtions therefore ba it resolved that we dele- gates to .the convention of unicipa. councils and boards of trade of ;he territory affected assembled at Cole- man, Alberta, this clay re petition the Government of Alberts to use -the utmost means, at i c .iu- marid to promote the speedy construc- tion of-such railways as are in the guarantee of bonds and in the particular construction of such lines of railway from Macleod to Coien-an, thus affording the competitive mil- way facilities required. Fu support of this petition we would nvpf-ctfujly represent that within the ferit-ory af- fected are located mines r.he aggregate production .of which in the year was tons of coal and thus far for the current year 000 tons showing a large-incr use ovei the corresponding period of the pre- vious year.

Again within- territory under discussion there are m-'iny of virgin coal lands known carry commercial coal whieh only await ;id equate railway facilities to become producing properties. The possibil- ities with regard to coke and sister products are also very great. Relative1 to other potential possibilities of the district- in question as regards rail- way tonnage possibilities we point out that at the town of Blairmore is be- ing constructed a cement .manufactur- ing plant, which will begin opera- tions within a. year and -will have a of barrels per day. Lumber manufacturing plant's now in operation produce an Aggregate feet of lumber daily; lime kilns in continuous operation produce 100 tons a day and brick makrng plants will be in operation within a year having a capacity of brick a day.

Thfe long adjournment bas given the 3rown officials ample opportunity 'or picking up loose ends in one oi -he "most tangled skeins that ever was presented in the history of criminol- ogy and the prospects are that the results of their efforts will be shown u" some very startling evidence. While public opinion has veered to- vards the idea that only an open can be expected from the de- ibera-tions .of the jury, it is not rm- ikely that the denoument may b? of a. sensational character as incidents hat have marked the progress of the nquiry.

There were lots of appli- cants for the position, some of them very good men, and some who had little or no qualification for the posi- tion. 'The three who were finally voted upon by the aldermen were J. H. Thomas, Gus Neidig, and the suc- cessful applicant. Among the. other applicants were Capt. John Mc- Grath of the Calgary brigade, Capt. Chas. Hill of the Brandon, brigade. Assistant Chief J. B. .Priest of Sel- kirk, 0. Gunderson of Montreal who had been fire chief in three Norweg- ian cities, Chas. Sellens of Leth-' bridge who had been a fire chief in Kngland, A. of Oak Lake, Geo. HQuk, 1-ethbritige; Geo. Cribb, Lethbridge, and. Norman Knowles, Winnipeg. There -were appli-" cations for building inspector alone and for positions on. the paid fire brigade. While the appointment was being made there was considerable ..discus- sion on having the positions of fire chief and building inspector united.

The .department has bf-en asked to time and attention of a man. And, moreover, as the city was.-: growing so rapidly and was so scattered it would soon be necessary to have-one or two more-fire halls which would give the fire chief plenty to do. Aid- Hatch predicted that in two years there would be three fire -halls an .the city and inside of a year they would have, to place .one somewhere: along Westminster Road. Aid. Bowman remarked that- no one a year ago could predict the growth of this, year and it is only beginning. The people will have to realize that Letbbridge being so scattered, cover- ing such a large area, is going to be a most expensive city to govern. There is no comparison in the cost of providing ior a city like Lieth- bridgc- and a compact city like Med- icine Hat and others. Aid.

The chief in agreeing, said that he was very sorry to lose Kroning oft.the force but he was glad to see him promoted for.' he deserved it. The new fire chief, Sergt. Kroning, is at present on the city police force. For sonic time he was driver for Fire Chief Egan, of the Boston fire brigade, and later went to Tampa, Florida, at the reqiest of Chief'Har- ris.

THIS YEAR'S CROP Figuring on Increased ern Canada Will Hava Big Yield Winnipeg, Man., April Fowler, seeret.iry of" the. Northwest' Grain Dealers' Association said today: The natural increase in acreage this year will be about 800 thousand acres, at a rough estimate. This is the re- sult of lands thrown open and home- steading. The acreage last year was about, six million seven hundred thousand. This year it will be about seven million .five hundred thousand acres, at an average crop of 17 or 18 bushels to an acre, which is a small one. This will mean an increase in the estimate of last year of .about bushels. This added to.-the estimated one hundred million _bush- els of last year will be seen to make this year's bushels. Of course, this is taking ivcry advantage and disadvantage ;in- to consideration. ROOSEVELT Apr. 2UV--RoOseveU ar- rived this evening.
