It is also most satisfactory to note the attitude which our two papers are taking in respect of advancing the claims of Lethbridge, 1 would like for a few moments to draw attention to the possibilities of the town for manufacture. The question is a large one. and 1. can hoi>e to do no more than to just point out a few leaders which can be followed up in diseti&sion which 1 trust you will give to this most important question. To begin with, what is local industry; of what benefit is it to a town, or, coining nearer home, of what benefit has it been to our town � Loca I iudiist ry may be said to be the development of natural resources for the common good; it increases population by bringing in skilled lal>or which naturally is of benefit to all business men. and 1 think I can safely that without local industry Uoost Lethbridge. .Don't boom Xobodv wants a boom.

We can, in my opinion, suni>ort a flour mill at Lethbridge. 1 am not sure but that a meat packing industry would do well here. This industry, it seems to me, would offer a solution of the present beef trouble, bring better prices to the rancher than he is getting now and such industry Would bring in its train numerous others for the consumption of the by-products, such for instance, as a tannery, and if a tannery, why not a bxit and shoe factory, and so on ad lib. It seems to me the proper way to arrive at anl wherever practicable establish such manufactures ourselves as our natural resources permit of and such a project ought to receive the favorable consideration of our business men at large. Flour and sugar for instance* are manufactur-tnl in the Lethbridge district. We ought to ask the question when we sit down toa m nt. is this Havmond Hour and Raymond sugar, and if not. why not? Make a home application. Why send fo Timothy Katon wlu-n we can get it here. Smoked meats come from Winning, Hamilton and Chicago; can mil meats from the greut American packinghouses and it would seem at first sight to be inconsistent with our local development for us to send our live beef to Chicago and get it back in tin cans labelled Armours, Cndahy. and eating the contents of tin* jans here with considerable relish because the can bears an American label. If it is thought well to appoint such i committee as 1 speak of, it striuld be composed of workers and men who are prepared to give the matter some though . I have not any time to lose but I should deem it a privilege to act on such a committee.

First, in that it gives a cheap product for home consumption; second, it gives steady employment to many men. and thirdly, most of the product is sold to outside points, thus bringing in money to the town for greater development. We have a brick company which employs 25 to S.W men steadily 7 months in the year; the brewery employs 10 men and the iron works 12 men. 1 nfention these specially as they are operating; along the same lines making a specially of outside trade, thus briuging in money from outside points for use in our town, whereas our electric light plant, sash and door factory, blacksmith shops, etc., look after our home wants and conserve our spending for these commodities within the town limits.
