Alta.. Fub. fin- al session of the first legislature of Alberta prorogued at five o'clock yesterday by Lieut.-Governor Bulyea, with the same ceremony as was used at its opening- In all about sixty-one bills were passed by the Legislature. In com- menting on the work done, the Lieut. Governor said: "There can be but one feeling on the. subject of the provi- sion you have made lor the ex- tension of railway facilities to many portions of the prqviuce and when at some 'future date not very' far dis- tant the railway map of Alberta shows a still vaster expansion of mile aere you will be able to feel that in the session which has just closed was dug, so to speak, the first sod of the system. j Thu election acts which have passed make satisfactory provision for the representation of the people and are such as will meet the requirements of our expanding popu- lation." In of the whole yester- terday Mc-STab's labor bill for fort- nightly'pay days was voted down.

They announced they had found a very de- sirable crossing a couple of miles be- low Diamond City on the southwest quarter of 10-21. Mr. Hatch informed the council that the span of the; bridge would be about the same as the present bridge, but that there would be very little bottom on either, side of the bridge, and the grade to the bank was very easy. This bridge would be located so that it would j serve a great Jstretch of country. It j was decided to refer the matter to LIBERAL CONVENTION A convention of the Liberals of the Lc-thbridge country dis- trict will be held on Tuesday morning r.ext at 10 o'clock in Oliver's Kali, Lethbridge to select a candidate to coyest the riding in the coming pro- vincial It is very important that every division, in the riding should be represented by a delegate or delegates as "it is desired that the choice .of a standard bearer should be made by a representative ..con- vention.
