Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 11, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbridge Daily Herald VOLUME II. UfTHBRIDQE, ALBERTA. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY II, I KM. MO. MEDICINE HAT ANXIOUS TO GETIT j. ire Through New Irri gated Country Edmonton, Alta., Feb. Milne of Medicine Hat and A. M. of the Southern ..Al- berta Irrigation Co., to- night to urge upon the government the regular guarantee of bonds for the Southern Alberta Ry. Co. Medi- cine Hat is pushing "this scheme but it is of great mportance to Calgary as well- Here is the proposition: South of the C. R. -from Medicine Hat to Gleichea is a .district watered by the Southern Alberta Irrigation. Co. The district .'is golden in, its :promise of development and is already filled with homesteaders. The Medicine Hat people want a road to divert from C. P. R. at Sutfield about twen- ty miles west ofc Medicine Hat, strike south of the. line and follow along thirty miles south of the C. P- R. line and hit the C. E. at Okotoks, and thence to .Calgary. It will, pass through Southern Al- berta irrigated districts and thence through a district quite as rich as that- through which the proposed Calgary to Lethbridge line, -will pass which is not served by any road and will not be-served for .many years. The government policy is to assist trunk. fines and to assist others because the government cannot be sure that others would pay. Here is the answer: The promoters are bor- ing for gas just four miles from Bow Island, the most .remarkable gas well ever struck. They- expect and not without reason to develop ten thou- sand horse power and will electrify this road and it will be an .electric road and sure to pay. No other road' wjll accommodate these farmers. It will pass through Sundial and Optic. It will mean as much to. Calgary as to Medicine Hat and will be as im- portant to C.algary as the Lethbridge Calgary road, as it opens quite a valuable territory. In. addition to other advantages it passes through a coal belt as rich as. Gait coal, Leth- bridge.; and would mean cheaper coal for Calgary. GOING TO THE COAST (Special to the Herald.) W.
