J. i'raiiklyn of the Chris- tian church, will deliver his popular lecture on the above theme in the church on Tuesday, Feb. 8th. Mr. Franklyn resided'in the; Dominion of Now Zealand for 10 years, during which time he made a cafeful study of all phases of that country's life, and as preacher and lecturer has. travelled from the North Cape to the Bluff. This will be a rare opportun- ity for the residents of Lethbrldge, especially the young people, to learn, all about the prosperous, far off sister dominion of the Southern Pacific. By the aid of a set of. pictures, loaned by the New Zealand government, the scenic beauty, commercial activities, and resources ot this portion of our world-Huns empiro will be in- terestingly presented. In a personal letter from tho Hou. W. P. Massey, prime minister of New Zealand, the lecturer carries a great credential as to fitness iu dealing with this subject. Although greater Interest is daily being manifested in Lcthbridgo In the Montana oil field developments, those occurrences have not shown any ef- fect on the filing oil leases in Southern Alberta. .1. A. Reid, agent of tho Dominion Lauds, ill Lethbrldgc, this mprnlns said very little has bsen doing in the lease line. A few leases, of twenty-acre size, the minimum, have been taken out in the Foremost Held by individuals. Ho far as Mr. Reid knows no company is behind these but It is not generally known in Lethbridie that drilling in the Montana field bus been extended to within a few miles of the interna- tional boundary. The Elk Basin company lias gone north of Havre unit it is expected actual drilling .will commence in the near future. They hare prop- erty within a short of where the Imperial Oil Company Is drilling; at Consul, Saskatchewan, on the Lcthbridge-Weyburu line. This con- tinues a. line through the present Montana producing Held that extends right into Southern AlbarU, Other wells being drilled and leases being taken up chow that the Elk peo- ple would be on the eaittrn side ot the field. Kevin and Choteau perhaps form the western boundary, Choteau is .considerably southwest ot Kovla. A line extended through Kevin would come out through the Canleton dis- trict. Reports recalled in Lethbrldge this morning show that Interest Is running very high in the Montana (eld. New companies are going Into the field every day.
