Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 22, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHSRSDQE, ALT A., SATURDAY, AUGUST 22, 1908. NO. 213. PREMIER PARTY VISIT STIRLING Greatly Pleased With the in that District AddreM Fine Public Meeting in Evening (From a Staff Reporter.) Stirling, Aug. tar- lile and progressive a district as IE to be found on top of the soil in Al- Premier Rutherford and his party an opportunity to view rich fields surrounding the town yesterday. The" premier's trip has been a complete round of surprises and at no place was he more astonished than at Stirling.- He had heard the people were good farm- ers but his expectations wer? far more than realised. He saw fields- of the'.finest wheat, and oats that one could wish to place eyes upon. He observed threshing and saw for himself that the yield was as good as reports had -said. He viewed ce'ebrated Welle farm where several thousand acree were in crop with wheat, spring anc winter which are now being cut, anc bats'that would be hard to beat. This field of. the Wells Co. is two miles wide by. throe, long. Farms all through the district tell the" story of abund ant crops.; v Nearly 75 per cent, of the grain'ha been cut and in a few days the re mainder will have fully ripened. The Premier and party expressed much admiration for the beautiful farm home of H. Perreit. If there is a tastier iooking_property in the South the Herald like to, see it. Well chosen colors of paint adorn the house, barns, and fences. The lawn is one mass of. Sowers in. bloom, and trees line the fences and dot the grounds. The development in the Stir ".ing district is remarkably, great this year. Bishop says VthCf hat the Conservative party in its ailroad and trade policy was the rieud of the inonopo'.ist against the people. It was the party that gave the manufacturers all the protection they wanted and the C.P.R. even more than asked for. His arraignment of the C. P. R. was most effective and showed the C. P. R. to be in league with the Conservative party. In the West during the Conservative regime the P. R. did as it liked, in fact it oontrolled. rates and kept out compe- ition. Under Liberal rule the re- re'fse.was-the' case. Competition was encouraged, passenger and rates reduced, and the railroads were uade to toe the mark. Mr. Buchanan made a few remarks covering several features of Alberta egislation. The Premier and party drove into Lethbridge' in order to mako train .connections for Taber.
