When Mr. August Woolf of the Spokano Chamber of Commerce said in his letter to the 25,000 Club that the Club should aim to build up the district rather than the city, he made n statement that will l>ear the careful stuily of every one Interested in the work of building up Lethbridge. Every settler brought to this district increases tho demand for tho products manufactured hero or. brought in. One of the Drst questions asked by most industrial con-corns in looking for a location is about tho local demand. Nearly every manufacturer looks to tho ilis -trlct within easy reach to give him a safe market for his product. Ilis trade beyond this district brings him his extra profit. It is true that some *nanufpcturers are not particular about a local, market hut. such is not the case wiith tho great majority. While 'perhaps not alisolutely true, Mr. Wolf's expression, "Fill up tho country ami tho city will tuko euro of Itself," contains a great deal of truth. a spring wheat containing 0-10 uci'es which Is a, sight to deliglft the heart of any farmer.

Unwthonvwaite Owing to the fact that the last fiscal period ending March last was only nine months it is impossible to make a comparison with the previous fiscal year. But for the nine months British immigration totalled 55.701, an Increase of 18,710 over the same period of 1005-O0. ami continental ion totalled 31,217, nn Increase of 11.001. The total Imml -grution for the nine months was 121.007, an Increase of 35,850. For the month of May last the total immigration was more than for the whole twelve months of 10OI nnd over double the total immigration for the whole of 1807. Prolwbly the most gratifying, feature of the whole immigration movement is the fact that, of the total nunilier of new settlers coining to (\innda from across tho Atlantic during the |mst two or three years, the proportion of British subjects has been steadily and rapidly incrcas ,ng, and. according to the linmlgra tion officials, the character of the immigrants is tietter than ever 1�-fore. In April lust the immigrants of British origin outnumtarod those from Continental Euro|>c by nine to one. Mr. Oliver's policy in res|iect to intnvigrntion can be briefly stutenl First, -Immigrants of good diameter only are wanted. Immigration ofllc ials arc forbidden lo pass any person morally or physically unfit to make a good citizen of this country. Second, special 'instructions have been sent out and s|iecial inducement arc given to encourage the immigration of |iersons who arc fitted and who Intend to follow agricultural pursuits or railway construction in Canada. Third, the energies of the de|wrtment are ilevoteil chiefly to inducing immigration uf Anglo-Sax on stock, I.e., from Great Britain or from tho United States.
