Editor of The Herald, Sir Robert Harvey undoubt- edly expressed the sentiments of a vast majority of the people to be served by his proposed location for the new bridge over the Belly river. Such u, one 'has been discussed among our people, yet none seem to take the active part to express them- selves openly to the public and call to the attention of the committee of the board of trade and members parliament their urgent needs aud justifiable rights of a voice in this matter.

While Nolan's ford seems, as Mr. Harvie says, "fitted by nature for a yet Hill's ford is almost as conven- ient for the vast numbers of people constantly compelled to drive an ex- tra 12 miles to reach Lethbridge. Practically all people from five townships north of the Little Bow, not considering the great .number from south of the river, Iron Springs and other vicinities, do their trading and. purchase their lumber, machin- ery and various other supplies from Lethbridge, and as these townships are all taken up and practically all now in actual residence on their homesteads, it. certainly means some- thing to the city to retain their trade. While nojie of them are bound to Lethbridge by legal bonds, yet, in coming here they have made it their point of destination in shipping and loading their first dealings with the mercfaaots and the business men.' of an agreeable nature they will na-i rurally not -wish to sever their rela-i tions in this matter if fairness in. j consideration is shown them. So j respectfully invite the attention of! the committee of the board of trade j and that of our members of parlia- i ment to give this matter their j thoughtful attention. j. A. P. ROSE, I B. K.
