Mr. Perrey was in the city yesterday, and was enquiring whether the Bard of Trade intended to exhibit at the Dry-Farming Congress at Tulsa. Okla., next fall. He learned, how-j ever, that uothing definite was estab-i lished in this connection. Re U not know how I greatly interested in the United States his | eclamaticn service project in the border state, and is watching their movements closely. "The amount of steel and cement to be used in the project is truly wonderful," be continued, "it is. their intention to build a great dam at the St. Mary's Lakes, near (he foot of Chief Mountain. This dam will raise the water in the lakes forty feet, and will dam it back for eighteen miles. From the St. Mary's a channel is being cut to the Milk River, giving a stronger aad steadier supply of water in the Milk River, which will be used for irrigation in the northeastern part of 'Montana." Mr. Perrey expects to se� the labor supply short oi the demand in Southern Alberta this year. On the reclamation project which means so much to Cardston. there will he one camp at Babb, of over three hundred men. Arrangements for the establishment of this camp are under way now. Besides this,'tile CP. R. work qh the railway east of Stirling and also on the irrigation system northeast of the city will require several'hundreid hien. These, with all the men required for building in Lethbridge, will be a great drain on the labor market, which is even now short of men. ; The Cardston 'district" Is prcspferous just now, and the outlook for better farming conditions next year "than have prevailed for seine time, is resulting iu a most optimistic feeling in the southern town. � � Whips of both parties.. have been making� &^^^^iof0^:}^et out**. full vptg .jana^thexe- .'will., be. few ab: There aw^b^eiT^per'ali'-sp.ealiers, and 1 R. *Ri*(-�enVe|i^>ijiemb'er "foi-- Calgary, artiirerv of both the federal and reb- ^ftC^ao^fl^K-if "there is time.

Supt.'Reitl.(Lecturer on Electricity), Engineer Blanchard, the. Mayor and Aldermen, after a month of hard work of investigation, with the full knowledge of the situation here in all its uetaiifl, were unable xo come to any definite decision as to the lowest price at which the city could guar-iintee power to prospective Industries. . A gentleman,, entirely without this knowledge of the local situation was called.on to assist. He spent, at most, a few hours in mveatigation, probably taking a. trip round to see the beauties of the city, and indulging in luncheon, etc. As a result pf his cursory glance into the affairs of the city, we are informed with a,great flournsn of trumpets, that the city c.au supply power for industrial purposes at Jlfj.uu. Now,. -there., is something wrong here( {Mi-. Editor..,-.Either our City Kl-ectrical: Superintendent, our City Engineer, and our Mayor and Aldermen are-sadly lacking in the . uuaJitles needed for their respective positions, or, the result^ of this "expert iuvfsti-' gation" Is absolutely unreliable and calculated to place the city fn ditfi-cultylece or land. A little money thus expended this year would represent thousands of pounds in a few years hence. That reference to Uie increase in the value of the land recalls the suggestion which was made some time ago that the church could amply provide for its financial wants if it were to : ecme a portion of each newly opened township, but it was felt in many quarters that to do so-would put the church in the position of speculating fn land, which would not be at all advisable.

They have attracted wide attention from visits ors of all natlonp, I** it i�- toj b^ *hfi beauty spot, why not make it the centre of civic activl'Mas? That is the question the mayor asked himself, and he decided that ho would lost no time putting the matter before the council so that the C. P. R, might be communicated with and the policy evolved. The mayor is of the opinion that the company would have no objection to the further beautifying of the park by placing a magnificent city ball in the centi'e� provided the company could have the \ assurance that It would never be used'for'any 'other' purpose. . ,it does not appear as if. the olty is in . a position . to spend $250,000 or '$300,000 at the present time erecting such an edifice, but it might be possible to design structure which need not all be built at once,' An expenditure of 9100,000 "for. a- portion pi'V$ ba&HKf nalgfetr b� undertaken Within the next year or two, and the remainder added when circumstances warrant. �. �t'-i"B;�rl.:--at.'the-:Slue.JSto.re-,' 1.401.-Bth Ave. Nort|i;. � ;, - Opposite Westminster School ��'��..; ;:�..[.�,�,.., HOKSliOtD FURNITUREr## Lsd; rX woi7[ncul)atovs., a 1 inost tie \v i : . �.�--������ W.
