The mayor spoke of the high calling of the teachers, the moulding of the character of the young men and women of the future.

Montreal, dan. A Dan Callery. liberal M. I1 for Si. Man's divis- ' nt*"lv. The decision of the C. P. R. to erect a bridge over the Belly river, in ordor to shorten the route between here and Macleod, is important in several respects to tins citizens of Lethbridge. For years the town has hoped that the C.P.R. would take this action, as it was felt that the present course of the road between hen; and Macleod had considerable effect on Leth-hridge's future as a railway centre. hut great as is the* need of a railroad bridge at this point, still just as imperious is the demand lor a bridge to accomodate the farmers north and west of us,whose natural market is Lethbridge. At present they have to go out of their way a considerable distance before they can cross the river. As a matter of fact, though it nav not be realized, faititers with-in ien miles of us goto Claresholm 'o s'll their grain and produce. simply because they will not allow th�MT horses to pull heavy loads up '�he sic* j) hills between their hollies -ual Lethbridge by the route they, * present, have to travel. Now. when the C P.U. is about 'o liui.d a bridge, is Lethbridge's opportunity to possess the trad*? of the growing fanning country to the north and west, for all time to come. Efforts should be made at once to ascertain if the C. P. K. would permit a driveway to be erected alongside their tracks. Once the consent of the C. P. R. was secured, the government of Alberta would necessarily be asked to grant ii sum towards defraying the expense of enlarging the bridge an i Lethbridge would also be es-pse. proceed at once to secure the aid of the government. The matter is most important. If the bridge is built with only accomodation for the railroad, Lethbridge will eventually lose all of this trade, us the towns springing up north and west, will be en-abhnl to attract the farmers, solely U'cause of the inconvenience hi reaching this city. The project must not be permitted to lag a moment. The board of trade and the merchants must i commence the campaign immedi- ion, tins city, has be,-n unseated and dt.M|(tabfied. Justice |)ai id-son, in giving judgement, remarked that the case was without parallel. m. c. K. C!/ I'STON. (iKNKHtl.
