A hundred years ago, Mc- Kenzie, the great, explorer, saw the river banks afire, and described it as burning bitumen. It is burning yet, and it will burn for ages. There antl more bitumen in Alberta and -'the north than was ever in Pejmsylvania. Railways' -will de- velop, these mines and make of this the great eoal bin of America. _ We know that in the Athabasca there are estimated a thousand square miles of bituminous deposit, of tar sands, oil gum or asphalt. There is enough .of this commodity to supply America for generations to come, and to enable Alberta cities and towns to have at a nominal cost-well paved streets and endless sidewalks. Rail-! ways will develop this asset, realke thus cheap commodity, and build a city at the place wliere the material point, also, are wells of natural gas natural commodities Lethbridge is looked upon as a citj with a great future, or it would no be given a seat in the Legislature. Afoosejaw Board of Trade is going to get out after wholesale houses this year. That city expects to be the centre of a big district to be opened up and settled by new irailroac branches, and it expects to lose a lot of retail trade on that account, but it is going after the wholesale trade so that it will be the dstributing point for these new places. Lethbridge might take a hint from Moose Jaw's action. We are already the centre oj a well populated district, and aU we need to do is to keep the public in- formed about our splendid location in order to secure more wholesale houses. We must not rest on our oars and expect wholesalers to rush here. We have to let them know about leth- and persistently advocate our claims. inexhaustible and various that can be profitably utilized on ac- count of the heat, such as clay and sand for crockery and glass, and min- eral ores to be profitably reduced and There are also there to be found great mines of salt and beds of-sulphur.

There is copper and silver, and there is doubtless gold. There is iron and tin and lead. A railway to the head of navigation in the north will make this country available to the exploiting energy of the world., and in and out, will flow great streams of wealth. It cannot flow past us without touching us and little of it will pass. Alike in the north and our streams .are full of power that need only to be harnessed to turn the wheels of factories. Raihvays will bring the people to build up a great population to support the factories which in turn will support great numbers of the people. We are a province of great and wonderfully diversified resources. At present we have only the agricultur- al resources developed, cand these only in the glightest degree. Of OUT tremendous agricultural area there is less than two per cent, utilized. and only roads will fill m> over lands. We draw our plows in the great wheat growing south by steam; we must literally plow the land with locomotives. Route will realiie the development of our agri-i cultural resources, until, instead of trops of :the Eureka the balance 'o this week...
