'IMto travellers were nccoumaatal by C. W. Spoors, colonization agent of tho Dominion government, and they had Just completed a trip through n portion of southern Alberta, whore they lns|)cctoxt lands especially In tho vicinity of tjothhrhlge ami Hayrnond. In tho west they also made most careful inquiry into the various processes connected with tho extraction of sugar from the sugar boot uml wow 'through tho plants which have I icon established there by tho Mormon settlors, Mr. Verigin could not lie soon, but information in roferonci to the trip and 'the general plans of the community wore obtained from Mr. Spoors. PLEASED WITH DEBT OKOWIXtt INDUSTHV. "While in tho west, tho committee made careful inquiry regarding the climate of Southern Alberta," said Mr. Spoors, "and also with reference to tho possible range of production in districts which can -he Irrigated. They were especially interested in the consideration of the culture of fruit, and, owing to, tho fact that tho ltus slnn people arc very familiar with all the processes connected with the extraction of sugar from beets, they wero desirous of learning all that was possible with reference to this industry. The committee was very well pleased with the districts visited, and were convinced that, by the use of proper methods, the industry of their people would soon produce most excellent results there. LAIKJE PURCHASE OP HOUSES. "While in the west, the committee completed the purchase of 250 horses which were shipped to Verigin, whore they will lie used in connection with the work of the industries which are to be established there and some of which have already been instituted. The Industries which have already been established include tho large brick yard, where both burned and pressed brick are produced and n plant for the production of cement, and pottery. They are just complet Ing n largo grist mill and an oat meal mill, and are ready to enter on any enterprise by means of which they will be able to afford the moans of a livelihood to their people. ldt-'gti R8 had been anticipated �tfller in tho year. At present, the ranch ers arc engaged in a combined effort to t-ound up nil the cuttle on the plains, and when this work Is completed, those that are found will tie dlslricutcd lo their owners." The "All-Red" Route Sir Sandford Fleming, who more than other gentleman, perhaps, In tho city or Dominion, has interested himself 'in groat imperial projects, is deeply concerned with the success of the proposed All Itotl fast mail tyne from England to Australia through Ciiuadn, and -the All Rod cable proposition. It was ho who Intimated the memorial to His Excellency ivc -ently. "1 have road with no ordinary interest," said Sir Sandford, "the proceedings and conclusions of the Imperial conference, Just ended, respecting tho fast steamship service to connect the mother country with Australia through Canada. Obviously it has now come to be realised that Canada is actually in an ideal geographical position to aid in drawing together in a practical way the several units of the great British Km pi re, For some time progress has lieen making in this part of theworld of important bearing on imperial development. "Forty years ago," he resumed, "llritish Columbia was tho most dis-tatit colony of the mother country; H was as far removed from England as New Zealand, the antipodes of ['England. The usual course to pursue by ships passing to or fro from llrit ish Columbia to England was via Cape Horn, thus crossing and rocro.x sing the equator in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans before reaching their destinations �.**fA.***aA*a#aa,es**��A*#�A Lethbridge Fair Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday tag. 6, i and 1 'Nat oae att. theatre* em"-WsadsU PaUMp*.

"Tho present wax the first extended tour mado by IVrtor Verigin since tho time of his return from Russia. That Journey was made by hi in at the request of his brethren iu tho com -munity for tho purpose of securing information in reference to the condition of the people of Russia and to inquire in reference to the pro-gross made by the |x'oplo there. Ho spent kevsral days with his friend, (Tolstoi, by whom he was received with the graatost cordiality. He was also well received by tho ollicials of jibe government who put no obsbaclu i in his way as he pursued his mission ; in tho country. He stated to too | that many of the ollicials in the ox-etutivo buildings in St. Petersburg were completely shut in owing to tho funeral insecurity and the fear of uhut might happen on the streets.

Some English pn-KS writers were disposed to laugh at this prediction, and perhaps it was not surprising, for formerly the Pacific coast at British Columbia hnd lioen distant several months' passage. It is not surprising, then. Hint doubts existed and that they thought the sender of the message ovr sanguine. ALL RED LINE. "It is now proposed to carry mail and passengers from London to Vancouver in eight days. The first trans continental train carried seven persons from the St. Lausvnos to Pugot Sound, and here I may say Vancou ver then had no existence. Lord Strathcona was among the seven and it is not improbable that toe occas ion awakened In his mind the imperial spirit which with him has borno so much fruit. It is well known that he is a firm believer in tho rapid steam service indorsed by the imperial conference. Today every member ol the empire may rejoico that Lord Strathcona is taking such a gnsit interest in the present movement, a movement that has the unqualified approval of such a wise and cautious stutesman as our own prom ler. It will, when curried into effect, us Hon. Clifford Sifton said, bo a benefit to every- person in the Do minion and all will see that it will tend to secure to Canada that dos-tiny that tho future bus in store for tier in the family of sister nations constituting tho twentieth century empire." lEe Greatest Fair -IX- Southern Alberta The Best Hone ExMMtian in I r Highest Prizes Offered in all Departments.
