TV'a hardly think the people ol Southern Alberta realize to the full very real efforts which are being made to explore the district for oil. South, of Cardston, Boston capital lias been engaged for over two years In drilling the first deep well south ot the Okotoks field. This concern has already" spent two or three hundred thousand dollars in the project. It la not a slock selling proposition. Nol a cent of money was erer secured from tho general public by means ol sale of stock. It is a case of these men backing their helief that a great pOol ot oil.underlies some portion ol Southern Alberta with real, hard cash to undertake the discovery. "The rig on the ground which has already sunk a hole to the depth of 2SOO feet IE the largest brought into Canada, anc the hole 'may he carried to 4000 feei If the indications warrant the under taking.

Just however, it must ake a back seat while the bandits are at large. against almost every obstacle mother nature can raise. And the police are confident ot success.

The rail- ways of Canada had already been granted two Increases Iu freight rates, one'of 15 per cent and the-other.ol 25 per cent.. If it could be 'shown that either Of the two great railway systems, the. Canadian Rational or the, Canadian Pacific, could make a reasonable revenue out of the pres- ent rates, there should be no increase! An advance in freight rates meant Inflation all'along the line from the producer to the consumer, said Mr. Jilaiu, because the increased rates was incorporated into the cost of the commodity .shipped and the percent- age ot profit was figured on the orig- inal cost plus the freight rate. The result .would he that the In- .crease orlgipally granted ;would be much greater when the consumer paid for the product. The manufac- turer sold an article for a 'certain price, plus the freight rate. Tho wholesaler charged his profit ot a certain percentage figured on the original cost plus the freight rate. Perhaps an article might pass through several hands until finally the con- sumer received ft, and he might be paying just five times what the rail- way commission had intended to grant as an increase.
