Mrs. Howie said that she and the children were well but that they had lost everything. Twelve Lost London,. Feb. 27.-The number of dead or missing was given by the Cunard company this afternoon as 12, , BO ! made up as follows: Passengers, three The | dead, three missing; crew: ays that the Laconia was torpedoed In comparatively calm weather. The first torpedo struck near the stern, and when .the vessel was struck a second time she listed quickly to star-hoard. The boats got away with considerable difficulty but there was no panic among the 'passengers.

He knew of inany farmers in the district southwest of the city who have four thousand or wore bushels of grain lying in their fields at the mercy at the weather; which will have to" be hauled in the spring when they should be using their men and teams.'in seeding. H. El Miebach of 'Monarch, said that during his threshing-' operations last fall he had threshed grain when it was a little wet, and had lost $200 or .more per car on it. Had an internal elevator been established here he would hare saved this loss. The farmers of Southern Alberta need a storage elevator at Lethbridge moi>e than any other one thing. Chas. Egan of Warner, said fifty per cent, of the .grain-in . that district is yet to be shipped, and will have to be hauled during the spring and summer. "The farmer living ten or fifteen miles from an elevator is the man who needs a storage elevator the most for as a rule he is unable to thresh until late, when the car and terminal elevator congestion is on. There are 175 names on the car order book at Warner now, and no relief in sight till spring. Geo. W. Green of the Ellison Milling Co., thought there would be no doubt that Southern Alberta farmers would use the elevator here to capacity, for the reason .that "they would have the advantage of the home mar ket as well as having their grain in fair position for the export, market.

The moving of the grain from, a storage elevator to lake and ocean ports could afterwards. be taken in hand when general railway, lake and ocean* transportation conditions became easier.  . r . .' ,:J Banking and other financial" business, as well as all .general business, would be facilitated if interior storage elevator accommodation were available. - The warehouse receipts, with weight and grade* stated, would" provide means for a farmer either to make a complete and final sale, or to finance upon the oasis of the warehouse receipt"!and then to complete the sale at some later date. There has fortunately been but little damp and tough grain in this dis; trict from the 1916 and 1916 crops;; but conditions have arisen in some seasons when such grain had to be dealt with.

Mrs. Robert Howie, Eeast Kildontr., .with three children, are alio be 'eved 1 to have been passengers on the Laconia. Mail Is Lost London, Feb, 26.-The Central News says it is feared the large amount of mail which the Laconia was bringing from the United States has been lost. cheaply in an internal elevator here, besides., having it in a^jwsition where they could sell to milling interests at any time should a premuim prevail. Mr. Green then went on to show that the milling needs of Lethbridge and the west are growing. Lethbridge, Raymond and Cardston have' milling capacity of 1150 barrels, which re quires 1,725,000 bushels per year.

Thus grain moving east from local points to^. Fort William through Lethbridge,'  Would be balanced as-to freight charges on grain moving west through Lethbridge from local points. Ilis important to note that the position of Lethbridge as a railway xentre for the movement of grain is unique in the Province of Alberta. No other point possesses the same facilities.for the provision of interior'- storage in respect of a movement ' for grain which gives a farmer, t.he option to ship' most advantageously either eastwards to the Atlantic, . or west wards to the Pacific,' Jfe will 'he conceded that it is desirable that our. producers should, be/ enabled. *tp secure for themselves...the best prices obtainable; 'and that'r storage at a point that is equally available for markets is better, than storage where only one market is available. , It should also be remembered that Spring _ . t  We will hol& oiir 'hrd. eb&wiag of. spring, millinery *$M �� ittcas fpi- |lie^mm$: season Will be "on'^pla)^.; *f'ou . are invited to view them.  v ; ' - � L. &l McLEAY ; '.-.'
