Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 29, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta Fiiday, August 20, 1913 THK LETHBBIDGE DAILY nEBALD Pagfe 5 Lumberman From Across Line is Greatly Impressed With This District CtiiNESEHK OE mil Peking, Aug, 28.~A crlsds was roaoii-6(1 here today, owing to tSie a'lrest of nine more raemberE of the Chinese parliament. Since bho procla.uatlon ot ^n^rtlal law lit the capital, arrestB summary executions (have been of frequent occurrence, eevoral of the victims being membors c� parliament. Many, of the dop'jitJos have departed for th� Boath in foair for tholr lives, and the assembly of the parliamentary quorum .has been prevented oni numerous occaslone, owing: to rumors that tiho police Intended to make further arreats. The senate today pas�9d a motion delegating the speaker and deputy-speaker to visit P'rovlslonal President Yuan SM Kal, and aek ,hlm for an explanation of the arrests and alao to Inquire whether he still desired to WILSONS^ Use tjieiri outddc, in or near thts 'f;^.i,'bagc; barrel, as well as in tJje liouae or ttore. All Drw^'eists, Grocers anH General Storekeepers , Wilson's ?!y P.~ds, govern China with the i.elp of the parliament ci- not. At the sanle time the senate resolved not to sit again If the reply of Yuan Shi Kai- proved unsat-IsfactoiT. The lower house passed resolutions In a similar strain.- "Vou have a wonderful country all around Lelhbrldgc, and it surprise.s me,'' said D. C. Neafus, a mill man from, the Pcnd Grille country in v^astcrn Washington and Idaho, who spent ye.stpnlay in touring by auti) the country north of this city in company with Secretary Finlcy, of the Associate Board of Trade. j\lr. Neafus, besides operating a large lumber mill at Locke, Wash., is the owner of the largest deposit of tlie linest, quality clay found on tirs continent and is building a $50,-OOU factory at Medicine Hat for the manufacture of porcelain goods. He asserts that lie will revolutionize the insulator business through manufacturing one fi-oiu clay that will be superior to those made of glass, and will carry llie highest volta;iC wires, while at the same time costing much less. "I had heard a great deal about Lethbridgc Leforu 1 came i-.p to Alberta some months ago, but this is | the first time I had an opportunity to pay a visit to Lethbridge, and I was induced to do so by friends in I Spokane, who urged mo to visit 0. T. Latlirop and Mr. Finley. I am more than surprised, and I want to say frankly that Lethbrid;.:,e is th^ prettiest and the best city I have seen in Western Canada, and it cer- ! tainly has a great future in store,,| You have more j)Usiness here today than any of the others, and your people all look happy, contented and prosperous. There is one sure, thing they are all optimists, and that whit makes a town grow. "I came up here just to look around, but, as I was leaving, a man down in Idaho made me an oiter of j a trade of some ot his property up j ..s;ar Albion' UidfjC for some of mine | in Washington, and while I iiad not given the matter a serious thought I ! want to say that after I had made a ' trip to Uowville with Secretary Fin-ley and had seen the land and the property all around it in excellent, crops, I wired an acceptance of his' offer. It is thD best land I have seen. The soil is just like that of northern California, and it will grow almost j anything if it is handled properly. It wants to be worked, and worked, and it should bo plowed deeper than some of your farmers plow it to get the best results. I shall return in a few i days, and see that tl:c oats cn the place, nart ot which have beten cut, ; are tliroshed, and the straw balsd tor I making hog houses for the winter, and 1 am going to go right on to that land and plow it as deep as I can and harrow it right after the plow. Next spring 1 will give it another turning over, too, and when I put a crop in there it will grow, yen I bet. I believp in the conservation of moisture, and while I have farmed a great deal and in a good many places I want to say that the best chance in the world tor a good, livej farmer is right here in Sou.thern Alberta. Going Right Way About It "I come from Kcntucliy, and down there they know how to raise some lilue grass and other th'njs, end thiy ^ farm their land tor all it is worth,' and do not run it out or leave it Hie ; and every other thing. Land wants to be worked.' And wh:n I work land j I don't plow a part ef it and leave the rest idle. I shall put every inch I at that ICO acres right under the' plow, and thall begin next we;k, too. i If the cold weatlicr holds oS Ion?' enough 1 may turn it over a second' time this fall, and then disc it be-' fore drilling in (he spring. I shnll probably put it into barley, tor it is land just suited to grow the plump-cist and whitest barley, and srome of your folks, who have been capturing prizes for barley, \s'i!l have somebody else to contend with next year, and I'll give them a good run for their money." ; Mr.' Neafus left for the Hat this morning, and will return the first ol ,the week, when he contompUtrs looking at a section of land west of Champion, which he has under consideration. Before departing he ex ; pressed himself as "dead scfcagainst! any let-hcr-go-gallavher larmcrs," 1 and would give such an illustration '� of farming nc.vt year lhat would tiv an improvement on a government demonstration farm.

Saskatoon, Aug. 28.-Coal deposits, vhich look very prroinlslng, have been Ji&covered aCiout a hundred miles west of Saskatoon, on the G. T. P. This morn'lDg, A. C. Tangedahl, a Montreal, Aug. 2.S.-"As far as I can judge the general situation in Canada is absolutely sound," said Ferdinand Faithful Begg, chairman of the London Chamber of Commerce and member ot the committee of the London Stock Exchange, who, alter a trip through the west tot purposes ot personally acquainting himselt with Canadian conditions, returned to the Ritz Carlton hotel yesterday. "You have got this black blot on real estate and since I saw you before I started for the west," said Mr. Begg, "the other weak spot seems to be in connection with the unemployment question. There is an appreciable amount of unemployment, i not in the sense that we know it in ' England, literally unemployment, the actual want ot work, but what you call unemployment, the unwillingness of the average man to work for the average wage. There are no signs of , unemployment here such as we know j of in England, and even in Winnipeg jX.which from time to time has report-ei'-. considerable surplus labor) I fbunrt no dearth ot work or unem- '''t'he flnarioi^I situation in London is.steidily iniproving, and as far as t'anadiaH ttiunl6ipaiiti?8 are concern- ' ed Lontfori is now quife.-4nclined- to consider aSy.reasonable propositions.

Tangedahl_ tlie discoverer, was ac-conipaBicd to- the city this morning by G. Schaffer, who is promoting the scheme for develop,nient. The land the coal v.'as discovered on belongs to the C. N. R., and a mining right had to be oblalned before the mlnie wns worked. The property lies directly west of Saskatoon, and ahout fifteen miles east ot Kerrobcrt, and thirty-six mllea west of Blg^ar. The G. T. P. nuiB within a few miles of the find, from wliich a spur could be built Vrfhen the mine ie worked. To clinch t!ic property both the discoverer and the promoter got a string on It this morniing. Mr. Schaffer took out a mineral permit, and Mr. Tanse-dah! filed on a purchased homestead. A. C. Tangedahl, the discoverer ot the coal, has been prospecting In the locality for the past four or five years. He is well vorsed in geology, and from certain Indications he was sure that there was coal In the vicinity. The vein which he has struck conies toward the surface In the shape of an Inverted V, and along the length is from twenty inches to sixteen inches 111 wId.Vi at its narrowest part. Already Mr. Tangedahl has made experiments with the article^ and finds it burns vvith great 'brightnoss, gives off a good heat, and leaves little aE:he3.
