Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 1, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta ftaturrtay,- Fcbnuiry 1, 1913. TUB' L'BTHBRItfGE DAILY HER ALU Page Z. A Pincher Creek Business Man's Opinion of "FROM A PINCHER CREEK BUSINESS MAN Replying to your letter of October 22nd, absence in Eastern Canada, we have-no hes buy lots in Pincher City, Alberta, as an in as we oan see, there is net one chance in Ing to anything more than It Is at the prese or 150 population. This case is just typical which you have so faithfully exposed during about going after Pincher City wild-catters" which came to hand during the writers' itation in saying that any man who would vestment, is very foolish indeed. As far five thousand of Pincher City ever amount-nt time; just a little hamlet of perhaps 100 of hundreds of others throughout the West recent months and you need not hesitate Prom Toronto Saturday Night. Phone 1425 P.O.Box 1$92 H. GALVIN & ^ Lethbridge, Iberta Corner 3rd St. and 4th Ave. Our attention has been called to the above opinion of Pincher City, by a mail who claims to /..'.be a business man of Pincher Creek, and 'was published in the December 21st issue 'of "Saturday ** Night," a weekly newspaper published in Toronto, a reply to the opinion was sent to-Saturday Night, but so far f he reply has not been published. .Wedp not know which of the twofPincher Creek business men it was who relieved himself of the above opinion, but this one claims that he "was in eastern Canada at the time the inquiry arrived, as- an apology to Saturday Night for. not handing down his opinion about the future of poor Pincher City sooner. (We presume he was in Eastern Canada handing down his opinion as to when Pincher Creek would have/another air line railway.) If "this is Mr. Pincher Creek businessinan^s/b'pinion of the future of Pincher City, yve would ,like to he4ar his opinion of the future of Pincher Creek, as the only nourishment it has received for the past 6 or 8 years, are repeated closes-of - false -Railway reports, and it looks very much as if this is what it will have to subsist on in the future. . We will not say .anything detrimental about Pincher Creek. If the Pincher Creek business man is satisfied with its future prospects, we are, and he need give himself no uneasiness about the future of Pincher City,'very- likely Ire -has'reasons for hoping that his opinion of its future may come true, and it's very evident that if he had his way about it, his prediction would come true., �. , . We believe that Pincher City has a future, the business men who have left; Pincher Creek and moved to. Pincher City believe it has a future, the Grain Growers' association which has just recently pulled up stakes in Pincher Creek and. moved to Pincher City ,believes it has a better future than has Pincher Creek or it would have remained in Pincher Creek. And the farmers owning land in the Pincher Creek School District, who are now applying for 'admittanceto the Pincher CitySchool District/believes Pincher City has a future. -'-'..Th^/business men of Pincher,City, also business men of Lethbridge, and Calgary, who bought Pincher City property after "having first personally investigated Pincher City and its surroundings/believes Pincher City has a future. And this Pincher Creek business man.expects you to believe that these men's opinions of Pincher*; City- arevall' wrong,-* and that his .opinion, not supported by one single � reason,~all"right. Our advice to hinVis;":to'.cut out his little two by four opinion abou't^Mhche'r City,.and use -a little j.iid^nienfby buying/a few' Pincher City lots, while the price is within, his reach, and write "Saturday Night" and advise them to ch� the"same. . -'/ 'Our reasons for believing that'Pincher City has a future are:  It is now believed that the house of commons will pacs a measure giving the vote to women in the new session. There is a large body of Liberals friendly to woman suffrage, but opposed to giving such a bill the protection of an act of parliament 'because the present house has uo mandate for votes for women. The Right Buy for Yoii in mm v,a I ws The Town of Natural Resources Abundant Most everybody's talking abouttho big investment opportunity afforded in Taber today-everybody who is watching investments..We believe that in no other town or city in Alberta, perhaps in the West, has such an immense, sale of property, fo so many Investors, been effected during the past two months. The reason i=> obvious-eleven coal mines now operating-- mighty gas and water - power at ...u,^ just waiting for full development-C. P. It. now planning to make it a divisional point-C. N. R. projecting a connoetion with it-a radial already mapping out its course into it-wonderfully productive wheat raising areas surrounding it-But we can't , toll you all here. ... . . ,. .

F NOTHING IN THEM BUT ADDED EXPENSE TO THE ALBERTA FARMER Edmonton, Jan. 31.-''"T/he fact'that the Canadian Pacific may establish a system of internal terminal elevators in Alberta beginning-with two one million bushel elevators at .-Calgary., and Edmonton,-will not^alter our position- in regard-to our1 demand;- - tor elevator competition,-1' :� said H: J.-Fream, honorary secretary � of the.

The probability is that.^he C.
