And Stafford Village follows suit. The fate ot the village of Stafford is more in doubt than the world's baseball championship �ver was, eveii with Home Run Baker at the bat, It'rS. enough to wreck the nerves o� the patient council of the mining inudi-clpaiity. '�, Three weeks ago, after two ra'onths of wiggling on the fence, the people of Stafford were patting themselves on the back that probably after' all their patience would be rewarded by the City of Lethbridge taking them within enfolding arms during the present session of the legislature. Now their security is scattered to the four winds, and If Stafford Village is taken into the city, It will only he after some hard pleading on the pp.t of their head officials. ' . . ' .V; For yesterday the city engineer, iii'-formed the city council amid breathless silence that the cost of laying out the new streets in the village, and of expropriating the necessary , property for said streets would be not less than $15,000. He has It figured up to $20,600 now, and has only abput half the property arranged for. It appeared to be an expen&ive job, but he admits that only about half a dozen Stafford property owners are trying to soak the city on the land necessary for the new streets. Stafford Village is an expensive luxury. So said Dr. Levering when he lieard the report. When the village council waited on the city council not long ago and brought along a financial report shewing the village with $2500 to the good the mayor thought.that $2500 �yvould about buy the property needed to lay Stafford Village out along straight and respectable- lines. The $20,600 jolt yesterday was therefore a surprise for.His Wbrshlii. However the council will not give in until the work of obtaining-options on all the property needed is finish'ed.: Then it will gird up its belt and look over the prospects, which at the present time are none too bright^ Staf-^ ford's chances seem to hang in'the' balance. , � > , : Aids. Skeith and Aird Force Issue with Motion to Start Business Going Electrical power at $20 per hbrse'power per annum, ten per cent, off for cash. Exemption from taxation for 10 yegr's. Water, light and sev/er connection at cost. Site at cost, plus the inferest on the cost. The city council this year is in earnest about its industrial policy. So Is the public. 'W'ith a dozen or more good prospects hanging fire. Aid: iSlceith and Alrtl decided yesterday that it was about time to start the bail rolling toward that definite policy promised the people several weeks ago, so at the conclusion of yesterday's council meeting the aldei-men above mentioned brought down a resolution covering the induBtrlal inducements mentioned. They said they did not wish to force the matter to a decision at the time, but they wished to have something ou tJie records to talk to without putting it off any longer. They realised that the {ratepayers are getting anxious.. When power at $20 per horse power was mentioned It drew from Aid, Levering -the ^ remark that there was a strong' Impression on the streets that it should be at cost, not above the figures quoted by Expert Ross on his recent trip here. He thought it would be a.miatakie to make it any higher if the" city' could seii it at that rate. Aid. Aird and Skeith said they were wililhg to discuss, it. The . coilhcil then referred to the diagrains submitted by Supt. Reid showitig' -the load curve in summer and the;Ba,me in winter. This proved that inhere are 1500 horse sell frqm, 1 till 4.30 p.m. in winter ana from 1 a.m. till 6 p.m. in the summBf. :A11 the power between the pi-esent load. and the 1500 kilowatt line can be sold, and stlil leave a reserve of 600 kilowatt for breakdowns. This would draw on about 60 )ier cent, of the plant efflciency. It in now the objeci to bpII the surpluH load during the hours ot low load, to the best advantage, it a better rato than $18 net can Ijo set, the council will do so, but .Mayor Wiirdio was of the opinion yesterday that it would be bettei' before making a decision to hear Mr, Ross' report, Tlic $18 figure would be for power at the sites, for an eleven hour day, 313 days in the year. The ciiiestion of obtalnini; a different site from that now hold by the city was mooted, but Aid. Williamson said that as the site had been bought for IndustTial purposes It appeared ns it It would have to be used that way. The mayor said that the only objection was that the transmission loss would be heavy. In order to carry the power to the site it would be necessary to erect a high potential line, carrying about 13,000 volts. Such a line would cost about $16,000 if built overhead and close to $,"i0,000 If put underground. There was a difference of opinion aE. to whether it would be necessary to build an underground line, as in many cities a high potential overhead line would not be allowed. The question was also raised whetli-er it would not he wise to set a graduated sclieduie cf rates for power, the large consumers to get the benefit. The mayor said that Mr. Ross would probably give figures covering this, as he had been asked when here to do so. Mayor Hardie.-This is a matter at which we will have to go slow, but we should try to got everything fixed befcre the middle ot next month if �We are going to do anything this year. Aid. Aird.-I think we are ready to lose a little on $20 power, provided we can get results. Aid. Levering.-We must get down to business quickly. It can't bo put off any longer. It 'was decided in the end that a special mGating should be called shortly to discuss the whole question, so that when Mr. Ross' report arrives the council will be ready for it.

Tils is Uie prln-, eipal feature of tlie'; correspondence tabled in the Hous4 today, dealing with the action ot the government, In remitting half of the cement duty for four months of last siimmeT. -The file is a voluminous one, be-.'ginning with the demands from the Winnipeg board of trade arid other points In the west in Decemberj 1911, and .fnnuary, 1912, for prompt action to' relieve the situation in regard to the scarcity and high prices of; cement, and asking for-a remission of tji'6 duty: � .- . . ..'. In" reply: to these, the"independent' companies, through President James Pearson, of the Maple Leaf Portland' Cement Co., declared that if their prg-'tection.. was aboUsh^d . they would have fo go out ot business,; The figures submitted by the- Independent companies declared that the average cOBf of production in, 1910 was $1,31 per 'barrel, whereas the average selling price was only $1.35 per barrel for all the independent companies, giving a.profit of only ten thousand dollar.-ow a turnover of $1,360,000. For the last four years, Mr. Pearson said, the cement Industry in Canada had siiown losses year after year, and Lslmiiar conditions prevailed In other coiintrles.

He mainiained that the" Canada Cement Coj wag in aposition to take scdri of .all. the cement requirements of Canada. _ For 1913, lie said, thd com-pany,--woald have a; papaolty of ten lAilllon:' barifeis, while last year the V' �'':',rtb,fal go}i'B)iroption "wa^ eight million^ 99 barrels. In 1911, the company's shipments for points west of the Great Lakes totalled 1,299,507 barrels, and last year they were about 2,571,000. The company's plans at present have been for the doubling of* the output of its Winnipeg mill, the erection of a new mill in Ontario, and a new mill in the Maritime: provinces. The company Would be, Mr. .Tones said, "in a position to-tdk^,-care of the whole requirements of Canada for years to icome." jHe maintained that since 1907 there had been a reduction of 20 per cent. iHfthe average price.charged for cement in Canada, despite Increases in-o'oal and freigiits, and despite the-factthat the price of every other build ing commodity had been advanced. In regard to the present position of the cement company he claimecl, consld- Purity in food, lower cost of living- these are the demands of the day. Pure food is health, and health is economy itself. We cannot have health without healthful food. The most healthful foods are the quickly raised flour foods - biscuit, cake, muffins, crusts and other pastry, when perfectly made from wholesome ingredients. Dr. PRICE'S baking powder makes these foods in specially attractive, appetizing and wholesome form, and for both economic and hygienic reasons, such food should be more largely substituted for meat in the daily diet. But bear in mind that alum, or unwholesome baking powder, can never make pure, whole" some food. erwig the aT'erago price cf $1,55 jier barrel, now charged In the states, the net protection aftorded in Canada Is only 33 per cent, ad valorem. There was also a strong protest against the remission ot the duty on the builders' supplies section of the retail merchants' association of Can-, ada. They claimed that the remission of the duty depreciated the value, ot their stocks on hand, and strongly petitioned the government to limit the time for which the remission ot the duties was in .tffect. The correspondence winds up with a letter written under date of October 14, 1912, to the Minister of Finance Ijy Mr, Jones, on behalf of the Canada Gsmeiit Company. It is to the effect that a. strong appeal against any repetition of the.action ^ast summer: in remitting the duties would .be made and contains the following significanj!; statement: -i. "The. present pollc-y of. the Oanada' Cement Company was formed and ad-: opted with the belief that the policy of the government was to give the cement industry in Canada adequate protection. It the cement industry Is not to be so protected, it will be placed in a dangerous position, and if it can exist will only  be able to do so by changing our policy,' and on every occasion and in every market - obtain the highest possible price for our produce, in order that business again be depressed in the United States, wc, in Canada, would be in^ a position prineipaily through having accumuiat ed a reserve, to meet the -American slaughter prices by operating our mills at cost or less, tha_rj, eost while such American prices - are In effect. Last year and this spring, oement man ; ufacturers in America, were selling ce-< ment at less than its actual cost. This fall, tlie cement business in the United States hag a merited revival and' prices have advanced from 50 to 100 per cent, in different-localities. � In Canada our price has not advanced. The price today, delivered at Fort William, exclusive of the sacks, is'$1.40 per barrel, so that should wo be forced to change our policy: we would advance, our price Practically all over the country from 30 to 50.per cent, per barrel.
