WEDNESDAY, I'EBK'JARV 7, 1906. NUMBER 14 A NEW DISTRICTIATRANSFER TRACK For Land Titles Registration Sliould be Created HEADQUARTERS AT LETHBRIDGE Only Two Omces in this Big Province Now. To be Built from tlie C. P. R. Along SmitI) st. FOR TOWN'S WHOLESALE HOUSES For all of Alberta, there are, at present, only two land titles offices, oue at Calgary and one at Edmonton. If a deed or inortgase from Lethbridge has to be registered it has to be sent to Calgary and it is frequently two months before it is returned, as tlio office there is small and rushed witli work. The land title offices are to be transferred from the control of the Dominion to t h e provincial govenmient and one of the first acts of Premier Rutherford and his colleagues sliould be to create Southern Alberta into a land titles district, with Lethbridge fis the headquarters. In Ontario every county has at least one, and some of them two, registry office, which is the same as a land titles office in this province. At present, lawyers and clients are inconvenienced greatly by the delay occasionc^d at Calgary in the re^listration of deeds and papers and the govonmtent should see to it at once that proper accomodation is afforded the people by creating a new district for Southern Alberta, and as Lethbridge is the centre of this imix)rtant country, naturally the office should be located here. A FLOUR MILL Effort to Secure a Big Mill Lethbridge. for A. E. Cunningham, chairman of the Industrial committee of the Board of Trade, sent an imixirtan't communication to the Town council Monday night. It was in regard to tlie erection of a fbur mill here. The Board wante.l to know if the council would grant a free site of 3 acres, exemption from taxation for 15 years and water at 5 eents per 1000 feet or free water, for a 3 barrel capacity mill or a tree site of ,5 acres, exemption for 20 years and water at -5 cents or free for a 500 barrel capacity mill. Mayor Rogers and Aldermen Dooley and Robinson were chosen to interxiew the A. R. & I. and ascertain the cost of tive acres of land. The idea of tlie Board of Trade is to have something defmite to work upon with a view to securing a big flour mill for the town.

Whitney sold two lots, at the south east corner of Smith and RediJath sis last Thursday for $3-500 to the Northwest- Jobbing & Commission Co. The frontage was 50 feet. Mr. Whitney purchased the lots some years ago for $250. Lethrbidge property, it will thus be seen, is rising in value rapidly. The Jobbing Co. purposes building a brick warehouse on this property, as well as three adjoining lots to the east, which they purchased some time ago. It is mi-derstood the company have been notified to vacate their, present quarters in sixty days by'the C. P. R., as the enlarging of the yards ie expected to be in progress then and the ground on which the warehouse stands is required. The general feeling [ amongst merchants is that Smith st. will be the wholesale thoroughfare of the city. Already effort is being put forth to have the C. P. R. build a transfer track along this street, to accomodate wholesale houses and retail merchants Nat�irally wholesale houses find it of importance to have a siding at their doors to facilitate shipping. The projected transfer track took definite shape on Monday when a jxjtition was presented to the Town Council asking "that necessary steps be taken and proviBon made for a branch railway fro! the C. P. R. main line along Smith st. to Courtland st., with tlie *^neces8ary switching regulations, the corporation to p;iy for cost of construction of the same and to be renumerated therefor by charging a rate on each car passing over the tracks that will pay interest on the expenditure" or "that the corporation sanction the constuction of a railway as previously mentioned, leaving the coustruction of the same to those interested.'' This petition was signed by A. Maodonaid & Co, Adams Lumber Co., ' Sherlock Freeman & Co., HudsoifS BayCo., C. W. Gray, Harry Rose, C. J. Eckstorm & Co., C. Hyssop, Rose & Graves, Western Warehouse and Transfer Co., Morris & Hendricks, L. H. Fowler & Co., Howard Case & Co., A. E. Keys, John Bruce, H. T.Cherry, Geo. W. Robinson, Geo Rogers, John Brodie, T. H. Mew-burn, Northwest Jobbing & Commission Co., Reid & Co. Tne council passed a resolution agreeing to the construction of the track as far south as London st. The question of ownership and operation will be taken up at the next meeting of the council. MAY STRIKE HERE Grand Trunk Pacific Heading Lethbridge. for DR. P. W.

A special meeting will be held a week from to-night to discuss the city charter and it is ixjssible meetings will be held the two following nights for the same purpose, Jas. Greenwood had his leg broken Monday, The Grand Trunk Railway purposes building a branch line into Calgary and on to the boundary line. It is only natural to figure that this road will strike Lethbridge. We would urge the Town Council and Board of Trade to get into communication at once with the officials of the G. T. P. and present the claims of this town. There is nothing like keeping the railroads impressed with the importance of Lethbridge. We can stand two or three more roads and it is our duty to hustle for all we are worth to get them, A NEW POSTOFFICE Lethbridge has a one than better right the Hat. to No one man ever has too many pairs of Trouners, but this store tir;s more than it should have just now. They're tH new goods, modelled on correct lines and made up from regular trouserings. Never before have we had so many sterling values in trustworthy fabrics and wide variety of tiisty patterns, and only the overstock is responsible for the special prices we have marked on them in order to sell them rapidly. We Can Gi\ e You Just what You Want, either Ready-to-Wear or Made-to-Order. A LOCAL BUDGET. The Calgar>' lacrosse team sent a challenge to the local team last week to play in Calgary but it was impossible to accept as the Lethbridge twtOve could not be got together.

It is urged that inasmuch as the women pay so large a jmrt in the settlement of this country and have to share so many of the hardships of pioneer life, they should have some share by law in the property acquired.. F. E. Simpson, of the Cranbiook Herald, visited Winnipeg last week, and purchased a carload of machin-ery for his Lethbridge plant. Simpson has faith in Southern Alberta and Southern British Columbia . The man who is without faith in the Canadian West these days is an oddity. The faith which begets deeds is the good kind, and Simpson has it. Some man good at figures would have his work cut out if he sat down to figure up how much East Kootenay has benefitted through Simpson's active pen. -Medicine Hat News. E. S. Williamson Toronto. President of the Dickens fellowship, has discovereii another relic of the great author, and one which curiously enough he has been carrying around for a few years without knowing it. He has been the possessor since 1901 of the first gold watch carried by Dickens, which was brought to this country by Francis Jeffery Dickens,the third son of the author, who came to Canada shortly after his father's death and became inspector in the Northwest Mounted Police. His father gave him the watch as a keep sake. Recently Mr. Williamson sent the timepiece to a jeweller to bo cleaned, and the latter discovered in the back case a secret recess. Ill this was a lock of dark hair, a man's evidently, tied with thread. ~Mr. Williamson thinks it may have been cut from the novelist's own hair, and placed in his watch when he was giving it to his son. Tiie people of Lethbridge are under obligation to H. T. Cherry for securing two high class attractions for this town. The first, the Eng-liili Concert Co., composed of Mme Beatrice Langley, a violinist of repute, who toured Canada not long ago with the renowned Madame Allmui, Stanley Adams, a celebrated baritone andMiss Myrtle Megey a clever Australian pianist, is to be here on Saturday and Sunday evenings, Feb. 17 and 18. A sacred concert will be given on the latler evening. This company has only appeared in the large cities and Mr. Cherrv is to be complimented upon securing such a rate musical treat for Lethbridge. On March 1 and 2 the Juvenile Boston ian Opera Co. made up of wonderfully clever children from 4 to 14 years of age will be here. Every lii'ison in Lethbridge and district should patronize these concerts. It can safely be said no such attractions have ever been ott'ored in this town. now that is not equalled in Alberta outside of PJdmonton or Calgary. and will enable us to produce the \ three base hits.
