Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 13, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta DaOy Herald Volume III. Lethbriclge, Alta.. Saturday, August Number 206 QUARTER OF A MILLION BUS. Marketable Crop This Year In Claresholm District Winnipeg, Aug. E. Cora Hind reports on the crops in the Claresholm district as follows: The district comprises roughly, the territory lying twenty-five miles west, fifteen 'east, sis. north, and six south of the is very gener- ally settled. I drove over thirty-five miles, making a good circuit in all di- rections, and could not help marvel-" ling at the quality of crops grown, under such very adverse conditions, as there was no-rain in the district from July, 1909, until: the end '.of June; 1910, and then'only one heavy' shower. During the last few days, in common with other parts of.southern Alberta, there has been some good showers 'here. There were seeded in this district TO winter wheat and spring crops about acres, and of this fully one-third is a total loss so far as marketable grain is concerned, though a portion of it will yield a percent- age of feed which will he .valuable. This leaves roughly acres of varying value It is safe to say from which crops will be reaped. that acres will be wheat, as oats, as elsewhere, are a very general failure. Of the wheat land, possibly one-third is winter, and the balance spring wheat, or say acres of winter, and of spring. Judg- ing from the large number of fields examined, winter wheat will average around twenty bushels, and may- go> even a little higher, but the grade will vary all the way irbm one to four. Some of the best fields show a fine plump berry, but others are shrivelled and bleached by' the sun. 'The spring wheat crop is the best so far seen in southern Alberta. The heads are well-'filled, and though the straw is short, it will yield well. A number of fields seen will run to twenty bushels, but the average-will be around fifteen, though with an- other shower to help filling it might even go higher. These figures suggest a .marketable crop of from to bushels. Last year Clares- holm and tributary elevators at Woodhouse shipped .bushels, of which ninety-five per cent, was wheat. There is a smaller area of land fallowed and ready for winter wheat than in other districts visited. What has been said over and over again this season must be repeated here, the_ men who farmed well will have crops of some kind the careless farmer have none. LUMBER DROPS TWO DOLLARS A THOUSAND Vancouver, B. C.} Aug. and mountain mill men at a confer- ence with the prairie retailers at concluded to reduce the price on common lumber per thousand. A number of retail- ers who expressed an unwillingness to give the'farmer the benefit of the reduction were given a warning. All reports presented showed the trade to be in a flourishing condition. Stocks of coast mill men were shown to -have been ,one hundred and one million feet as compared with two hundred million feet on January 1, and one hundred and sev- enty-five million feet a year" ago. Stocks of the mountain mills are now one hundred and sixty-five mil- lion feet as against two hundred mil- lion feet this time last year. Spruce mills reported that they, will have, twenty million feet on hand at the end of the season, as compared with seventy-five million a year ago and the white pine men of show- ed that their stocks are forty per cent, less than they were a year ago. Several spruce mills and one white pine saw mill have closed through lack of supplies, of logs. The former included -the Red Deer mill .at Prince Albert. Two large saw mills in the Kootenays were, destroyed by fire last month, -thus reducing the output for the 'present. British Columbia mill men also reduce price on.shiplap per thousand. They also agree that odd lengths would not comprise more than 25 per cent, of their ship- ments to the prairies. DISTRICT COURT-WILL BE .HELD NEXT WEEK His Honor Judge Roland Winter has written that he hopes to -be able to come down and hold district court here next week. There are a number of cases for speedy trial on hand, which have been accumulating since the -last sittings of the court held by Judge Carpenter in July. Since Judge Mitchell's appointment to the Alberta cabinet the dearth of judges has -been very much felt Judge Winter has 'been acting in Judge Mitchell's place at Calgary and Judge Carpenter" of Macleod has been away and finds his own court -business piled up -consid- erably on his return. DEW IS TIRED OF QUEBEC Rimouski, Aug. Dew has arrived here from Quebec to see Chief Gavereau of Rimonski. They will-meet the steamer Lake Manitoba of the Canadian Pacific line, which is expected to arrive at Father Point today at noon. She has. on .board Detective Mitchell and the two men sent by Scotland Yard-to bring back Dr. Crippen and Miss Leneve. Detect- ive Mitchell bias, the necessary papers for the return of the prisoners. In- spector is saldr is tired of his stay in Quebec as the people there made almost as much fuss over him as over being some new ramor. The latest .is that the lives of the prisoners will be endan- gered if they are taken from the jail in daylight Inspector Dew is looking forward to his departure for England with big prisoners on or about Aug. I6tn. He stated that more than two thousand people have visited the jail since Crippen'g arrest but Ihft no one hag yet seen the prisoners. FINE BUILDING OF ROYAL BANK Handsome And Commodious Quarters-Is Nearly Finished The inside finishing of the handsome building of the Royal Bank of Canada at the corner of G-lyn and Redpath streets will be completed in about two weeks' time, when the bank, which for some months has been occupying temporary quarters at the east side. of the building will move into their spacious quarters. The although by no means the largest, is certainly one >i the handsomest structures in the
