NEW RULE WILL HIT THIS DISTRICT HARD Foreign Cars Cannot Be Used After Aug. 3 I for Handling Grain No foreign ears will be used to cany Canadian wheat over Canadian railroads this fall. On Monday next the new cor service rules will go in- ftp effect all ovor tho continent. By this rule, wliich 'ww put on Uie bcolts time ago tho Aiuerlcaa Eftil- association, all cars muit imme- diately be shipped buck to the rall- to which they belong, after they Ji-avft 'been cleared at tho point lo fwhlch they heen de'stliied. The .Canadian railways nre strong Actors Hi tho American Hallway association, nud the rule will afleot them, and be kept 'by them Just curcfully'ua by any United Slates railroad. Just how this rule IB golnp to af- fact the Canadian In the ol the 1912 Wentern crop is a question which experience -will iiavo to answer. But tho Herald- hai the word of a railway expert that the rule will make Itself felt In no uncer- tain way In tho west, and especially at euch points as connect directly with (American roa-dfl. Last year cars of United States rail roads wore used extensively lu moving the Canadian 'wheat crop. Thousands of American cars were held In Canda during the whole season, making sev- 'erfll trips between the Internal ole- vn'lors and the lake front. These cars "were never sent baclt to the Amerl- .can railways to which they belonged 'until In the spring' they were loaded with bonded grain .and ahlppe through American points. Various estimates of the number o foreign, cars which were In service Westeiii Canada lait year may be had Some experts put 'tho number as hlg ae fifty per cent, of the total. ThI 'Is thought lo be too high, howeveT and It IB moro likely that the num ber way less tbaji 25 per cent. Lethbrldge Affected However Unit-may be, it Is certain that L'ethbrltlfie enjoyed a pecullai position In this regard. Being thi terminal point of a railway which en tered Canada from an American road tho number of foreign cars In this vicinity was very large, and there Is not the least douht that halt the grain handled, over lines south of Lcth was handled In America cara. Tho statement that American cars kept the wheat in Southern Al bflrta moving during the sea eon does not seem to be Incorrect, aa It is be- lieved that the records will show thai almost hall of the Amoving easl out of this point, loaded -with grain were foreign cars. The C. P. R. has added almost.2fi par cent, .to tb'elr equipment for this year, the number of cars available be- ing as compared with -JE.ISC last year. If, however, the nav car service rules are followed, and the Hallway association will see to it that are, It would appear that Western Canada will suffer to extent of Just so many leas cars available for tho transportation of wheat, nnd .the sraln blockade which seems bound to come, will be Just so. much more Horlous. At any rate. It Is quite evi- dent that Lethbrldge and Southern Alberta will feel tho effect of the new rule, aud feel It badly. SPACE FOR THE B. C. EXHIBITION WILL 3E GIVEN 4000 SQUARE PEET OF SPACE AT THE CONGRESS In regular succession tbo applica- tions for space for exhibits at the Dry-Farming Congress 'exposition keep coming In. Canada and'the Un- ited States set tho good example, and now the British Columbia govern- ment ccmrea along with tho request for atJ-imuuh floor space as the exposi- tion committee can well spare. Chairman McNlcol yesterday re- telved the request for space from, ths 13. C. government, through 'their com- missioner, Mr. Brandrlth. who Is now in Toronto with the R.

All tho slables arc being turned into temporary exhibit buildings for tho ConRreeg, nnd from present .appear- ances all will be needed to accommo- date the applicants. The D. C. exhibit will be composed mainly 0{ fruit, and tho exposition committee has guaranteed that tho exhibit building 'u-fll be properly heat' ed, so that fruits nnd vegetables will not perish during the exposition. It has bean mooted that the B.
