Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 5, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbrhlge Daily Herald, Saturday, February INVESTOR: 3 ft You know Lethbridge thoroughly. You know that its future greatness is founded as solid as a rock on WHEAT and COAL, the two products that supply mankind's most fundamental needs. But for the very reason that you know the facts so well, perhaps they have never struck you with full force; perhaps you have not fully realized what the immediate future has in store for Ltthbricige. Have you fully appreciated, for example, what THIS year, the year 1909 will do for this city? Just by way of refreshing your memory, glance at the following newspaper items of the past month or two, in regard to the one matter of railway construction I WORK AT BOTH ENDS OF THE LETHBRXDGE- WEYBURN LINE C.P.R. Will Spend Thirty Million Dollars Constructing and Im- proving Western Lines Thisr Year Winnipeg, Feb. the Canadian Pacific is looking forward to a very busy summer of 1910 is evident and indicated by a statement made by General Manager Bury in Vancouver. He stated that the large sum of would be expend- ed in Western Canada this year. Among other Hues, In the construction of which thousands of people are interested, is to be a new road from Weyburn to LethUridgG About thirty miles of this road west from Weyburn has been built, and the supposition is that this year the company will do work from both ends. A line will be built east from Lethbridge and work will unquestionably be done on the line west from the present terminus of the line. The'greatest land rush in the history occurred last month into the country south of Lethbridge, which is tcx be served by this line. LETHBRIDGE WILL BE HEADQUARTERS FOR THE NEW RAILROAD Will Build Next Put Through This Open Offices in Leth- bridge After New Year A deal was put through in the city this morn- ing which means untold advantages to Lethbridge. This was the taking over of the charter of the British Columbia and Manitoba Railway company by a number of representative capitalists from Montreal, Ottawa and- Sudbury. In addition to this line surveys will be made next summer and have already been commenced on the northern line of a line from the southern boundary of the province passing through Leth- bridge thence north to Edmonton and Irom there to Dawson City. D.L.McKinnon, of Sudbury, is the president of the company; M. J. Fagan, of Ottawa, first vice-president and C. Brown, of Ottawa, the sec- retary-treasurer. The representatives have as- sured us that the offices will be opened here just as soon as they can possibly get back and the actual construction of the road will be well under way during the coming year. ALL ROADS LEAD TO LETHBRIDGE British Capitalists Will Build Railway From Winnipeg Montreal, Jan. Herald says: Lord Albert Fitzroy Somerset, brother of the Duke of Beaufort, accompanied by Mr. J. E. Leiter, of Chicago, were here yesterday for a few hours in company with local capitalists in regard to a great new railway project. They are on their way from the West to New York whence Lord Somerset intends to sail for England on Wednes- day. The line which it is proposed to build has been auuiorized under two charters which their syndicate have secured from separate groups of promoters and under these it is proposed to con- struct a line from Winnipeg to Lethbridge at the base of the itockies, and from there by way of v'alirary and Edmonton, to Dawson City and the Yukon fields. The road would not be far short of two thousand miles in length and would involve an outlay in construction and equipment of about No difficulty whatever is anticipated in the mat- ter of the raising of the necessary capital of this gigantic enterprise, winch will be in a sense inter- nation, as it will have connection from Lethbridge to Cards ton on the United States boundary from which it will connect with the Great Northern. C. N. K. WILL BE FIRST LINE HE11E From tlie Beat C.P.R. Wey burn-Line Feb. During the discussion it was made clear that the C. N. R. is building to Lethbridge from Mary- field more quickly than the C. P. R. from Wey- burn and will undoubtedly be here first. GRAND TRUNK PACIFIC Notice vrOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Grand Trunk Pacific Branch Lines Company wTTl ap- ply to the Parliament of Canada, at its present session, for an Act further amending the Act in- corporating the company, chapter 99 of the Stat- utes of 1906, by authorizing the construction of the following lines: From Regina, or a point in the vicinity thereof, thence in a southwesterly and westerly direction to Lethbridge or to a point in the vicinity of Leth- bridge on the line which the Company is, under paragraph 14 of clause 11 of said chapter 99, au- thorized to construct from Calgary to the south- ern boundary of the province of Alberta at or near Coutts.
