Ll' ' 'THC deFppftfinal^n" to hasten the~ wcrk of .eitendlng the .Canadian deep water . channel-is emphasized by the growing jgrain trade, and the fact ithat BO large a portion of > the Canadian yield is-being routed via Buffalo and New York. When the Welland canal is completed, and probably before it is com-, plete, it is likely that the St. Law-rence'river canals, between Lake Ontario and Montreal, will be deepened or'duplicated, thus providdng a'thirty foot channel for that head of the 'lakes to Montreal. The iilans for the other great outlet' for western grain, the Hudson's 'Bay Railway, are also proceeding rapidly; and the contract for machinery for the dreSge at tho terminal of the HudsoA's Bay Riiilway was. on Saturday awarded to f;'H. Hoklns & Co.,. Montreal, for $13,500. S0LD1200, 5 ) V 1 \jn 0 �I Wood-Gundy Co. the Buyer -Given Option on Balance Same Price With Aid. Williamson fighting it at every turn and blocking the passing of a motion for nearly two hours, the city council tliis afternoon disposed of $200,000 of its five per cent thirty year bonds to the firm of Wood, Gundy & Co., at the rate of 89.53 net to the city. The sale calls for accrued interest to be added to the 89..53 per cent, bonds to he delivered in Lethbridge. The offer of the Wood Gundy Co. was thfe only one the city had to consider. One other offer had been submitted tor the $117,000 of 4%%, by ttie Stlmson.Co., but with this was no offer for the whole issue. Th(} Wood Gundy Co., asked for an option for 60 jdays on the lemalnder of the issue, but the sale was made provisionally on the company reducing the term of the option to 30 days. Mr. Rankin, wso is in the city representing the company, thinks they will grant that concession and is wiring the .head office tonight about the matter. Considering the state of the market the sale was fairly good. The following figures show comparative offers and the price obtained last year: I Wood Gundy for 5 per cents... .89.53 Wood Gundy for i^/^ per cents. ..82.42 Stimson and Co, 414 per cents. .82,00 Stimson & Co. 4'%'s,.1912 ... ..:88.50 The Wood Gundy carries accrued Interest, and is about 1.50 cen\s better than that of the Sclmson Co. Aid. Williamson fought.the sale on the ga-ounds that the city's experience In 8^1 i^iiig..options had been disastrous last year. He was the only member of the council to vote against the motion. If the option Is taken up the city will sen tji remainder, of the 5 per ,XMnts,Jabbut $109i0O0, :wo;-th,' and the $117,500 worth - of'per cents � wi tih-In, a month.
