A f 1 I''' LXTHBR1DGE, tion Should be Created HEADQUARTERS AT LETHBRIDGE Only Two Offices in this Big Province Now. For all of Alberta, there are, at present, only two land titles offices, one at Calgary and one at ton. If a deed or mortgage from Lethbridge has to be registered it has to be sent to Calgary and it is frequently two months before it is returned, as tho office there is small and rushed with work. The land title offices are to be transferred from the control of the Dominion to the provincial government and one of the first acts of Premier Rutherford and his colleagues should be to create Southern Alberta into a land titles district, with Lethbridge us the headquarters. In Ontario every county has at least one, and some of them office, which is the same as a land titles office in this province. Atfpresent, lawyers and clients are inconvenienced greatly by the delay occasioned at Calgary in the registration of deeds and papers .id the government should see _ to t at once that proper accomodation s afforded the people by creating new district for Southern Alberta, nd as Lethbridge is the centre of bis important country, naturally he office should be located here.

A FLOUR MILL Effort to Secure a Big Mill for Lethbridge. A. E. Cunningham, chairman of he Industrial committee of the Board of Trade, sent an important ommunication to the Town coun- cil Monday night. It was in re- ;ard to the erection of a fbur mill here. The Board wanie.J to know if the council would grant a free site of 3 acres, exemption from taxation for 15 years and water at 5-cents per 1000 feet or free water, for a BOO barrel capacity mill or .a. Tree site of 5 acres, exemption for Bank of Montreal 'ESTABLISHED 1SI7 Capital ail paid Reserved Fund....................... Balance Profit and Loss.............. 20 years and water at o cents or free for a 500 barrel capacity mill. Mayor Rogers and Aldermen Dooley and Robinson were chosen to interview the A. R- I. and as- certain the cost of five acres of land. The idea of the Board of Trade is to have something to work upon with a view to securing a bi" flour mill for the town. D. J. Whitney sold two lots, at the south east corner of Smith and Redpath sts last Thursday for S3- 500 to the Northwest- Jobbing Commission Co. The frontage was 50 feet. Mr. Whitney purchased the lots some years Lethrbidge property, it -vill thus be seen, is rising in value rapidly. The Jobbing Co. purposes build- ing a brick warehouse on; this pro- perty, as well as three jidjoining lots to the east, which they pur- chased some time ago. It is un- derstood the company liave teen notified to vacate theii; present quarters'in sixty days by'the C. P; R., as the enlarging of the yards is 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 Natarally whole- sale 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 petition was presented toilie Town Council asking "that hiecessary steps be taken and provison made for a branch railway frornthe C.P. R. main line along Smith st. to Courtland st.. with the switching regulations, the corpora- tion to pay for cost of construction of the same and to be enumerated i here for by charging a rate on each car passing over the tracks thai will pay interest oii the expendi- ture" or "that the corporation sane tion-the coustuction of a raihvaj as previously mentioned, leuvin the construction of: the same to those interested.1' This petitioi was signed by A.

The Grand Trunk Sailway pur- poses building a branch line into Calgary and on to the boundary line. It is only natural to figure that this road will strike Leth- bridge. 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. Wt can stand two or three more roads and it is our duty to hustle for all we are worth to get them.

In speaking of Dr. Campbell's removal to this town, the Cardston Star says: Lethbridge will gain a jood man and Cardston will lose one of the best physicians in the Dom- inion'.

Simpson, or the Cranbrook Herald, visited Winnipeg last week, and purchased a carload ot machin- evy for his Lethbridge plant. Simpson has faith, in Southern Al- berta and Southern British Colum- bia. 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 Simp- son 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 benefit- ted through Simpson's active pen. Hat News. E. S. Williamson Toronto. Presi- dent of the Dickens fellowship, has discovered another relic of the great author, and one which curiously enough he has been car- rying around for a few years with- out knowing it. Re has been the possessor since 1901 of the first gold watch carried by Dickens, which was brought to this country by Francis Jeffery 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 be cleaned, and the latter discover- ed in the back case a secret recess.

The people of Lethbridge are un- der obligation to H. T. Cherry for securing two high, class attiactions for this town. The first, the Eng- lish Concert Co., com posed of Mine Beatrice Langley, a violinist of re- pute, who toured Canada not long ngo with the renowned Madame Stanley Adams, a celebrat- ed baritone nnd Miss Myrtle Meggy ver Australian pianist, is.to.be on Saturday and Sunday evenings.

On March 1 and 2 the Juvenile Bos- ton ian Opera, Co. made up of won- derfully clever children from 4 to {14 years of age will be here. Every 'person in Lethbridge and district should patronize these concerts. It can safely be said no such attract- ions have ever been ottered in this town.
