CREAMERY COMPANY OUGHT SUE THEALLIES Turkey Will be Given 24 Hours in Which to Reply HAS IT FALLEN BOUGHT FOUR LOTS CORNER OF EIGHTH AVENUE AND SEVENTH STREET SOUTH That the Lethbridge Creamery Co., Ltd., means business, and is in no way a bluff, was proven yesterday, when the company purchased four lots on the corner of Eighth avenue and Seventh street South, having a frontage of 100 feel on Seventh street and 147 feet on Eighth avenue.

JAILS ARE One Deplorable Feature of the Big Inrush of New Settlers BAD COME TOO Lethbridge Penetentiary Has 140 Prisoners and Only 110 Cells PUBLIC LIBRARY CALGARY FIGURES REVEAL BENEFITS OF FREE LIBRARY TO A CITY CANADIAN STEEL MEN APPREHENSIVE AFRAID THAT COMPETITION WILL COMPEL THEM TO LOWER THE PRICES Toronto, Jan. 2.--That the competition of the United States Steel Company whan they establish their plant at Sandwich, will have a disastrous offect on tho Canadian steel trade, is the general - opinion of .well informed financial men, who realize that the methods employed by the corporation to stifle competition in the United States may be adopted .here. The United States Corporation's business with Canada has of recent years rang, od from ,350,000 to. -100,000 tons annually, representing roughly from $13,000,000 to $15,000,000. Up to this they have paid a duty of six to seven dollar's a ton, and still make a-profit, which has given rise to the question among Canadian steel men as to how much lower, they will be able to sell their product when tills duty Is rendered unnciqsSary by reason of manufacturing: goods in Canada. Hamilton-steel men say their coming Will..have little effect, tout U looks as though steel In the near future will bo considerably cheaper than It Is at present' throughout the West and Ontario. Calgary, Jan. 3.--The Calgary public/library celebrated Its first annual amversary en January 'J, on' 'which dJte in 1912, it first opened Its doors. {There were added to the library dur-iJg the year 7210 volumes, making a tptal of 12,343 volumes at the close of 1H2. " � There were loaned during the year 4,573 volumes, but as no books were ianed until January 12,'this does not epresent a full year's work. As the looks available only averaged a ;. 1 it-;le over one per member, and tbe number loaned each month exceeded the number of 'books in the library, this is a somewhat remarkable showing. The membership has just passed the S900 mark. WALES LOSES THE PRICE OF COAL IS DIVERTING ORDERS TO THE UNITED STATES Edmonton, Jan. 3.-That the jails and guard rooms of Alberta are seriously overcrowded and that the flues-tion of additional accommodation for prisoners is fast becoming acute is a statement made today by L. F. Clar-ry, deputy attorney-general for the province. Lethbridge gaol which has accommodation, for 110 prisoners has now 140 prisoners eoniined there. Fifteen prisoners-were transferred to tho R.N.W.M.P. guard room at Macleod last week, which temporarily eased the congestion. Calgary police cells are also overcrowded while the R.N. W'.M.P. guard . room at "ort ,';?-katchewan has, more prisoners than can properly be cared for. Enquiry was made this morning at the Alberta penitentiary at Edmonton with a view to sending . some prisoners there, but 'officials stated that they were having to fix up temporary accommodation for prisoners who were already in the^Institution. The Provincial Asylum jiit Ponoka, recently extended by thfe^addition 0f almost-double former ^accommodation, is rapidly mlingup- .The reason for this state of ajffiairs is found in $he natural incpeas^ ,otlthe�;, population.. He Had to Turn Down a Big Order "We had to turn down one of the largest orders of the year this morning because we could not get space on the boats." That statement, made to the Herald this morning by G. W. Green, of the Kllison Milling Co., shows the importance of the export trade to the milling concerns of the prairie provinces. This company has always made a specialty of the Oriental export trade and today received one of the largest orders in the history of the company- But space on boats out of Vancouver has been all bought up by milling companies in Tacoma and Seattle with the result that the milling companies of Alberta are suffering. The two new C. P. R. boats for Pacific traffic to be put into commission next year will relieve the congestion somewhat, but Mr. Green is of the opinion that something should be done to reserve space on Pacific boats for Canadian trade. Mr. Green stated that the Oriental trade had been so good this year chat .they could have disregarded all other trade, and kept their plants going supplying the Orient alone. JLD INSTAL A 600 BARREL PLANT Mayor Hardie Thinks It Can Be Accomplished and Will Give Problem Immediate Attention if the Council Approves M; ALSO BUILD 250,000 BUSHEL ELEVATOR Taylor Green Makes Straight Business Proposition - Mr. Also Awaiting City's New Industrial Policy A Big Milling Centre -* "If the city of Lethbridge can guarantee to furnish our plant power at $15.00 per horse-power per annum, 1 can guarantee that we will at once, after the signing of the contract, In-stal the necessary machinery to double the size of our plant, making: it a (�00-ibarrel mill, employing about forty people. "And if we do this, it may be taken for granted that v,-s wilL-also erect shortly a large terminal elevator of. ' zhitt': at least 250,000 bushels capacity, for we would require large storage capacity for ourselves, and that would give the people of Southern Alberta a terminal elevator in which they could-store their grain for shipment either east or west. "That would be preparation for the opening of the Panama Canal, when Lethbridge is bound to become an as sembling point, where graiu can be stored and treated. "It would also be a move w.hich would force the government to establish a grain inspection point here.'' The above is the dictum delivered by G. W. Green, of the Ellison Milling-Co. this morning. Now, the question, is: "Can Lethbridge supply electric power at $I5.1)jl> .per horse-power per annum, day THERE IS NO SERIOUS SHORTAGE �.P.R.

Chengtu, Province of Sz6 Cheun, China, Jan, 2.-Three,hundred Ohlji-ese soldiers were killed by a force of Tibetans near Hsiangx,Cheng on- the borders of Tibet Muring 'a 'night afe tack last night, ^ha-'chhjese droops also lost six macbjne gufiB;; The official reason given tor the defeat of the regular troops is that �^e-.soldlei'a vev lusisd to trust "tbe}rCQminander's knowledge of the country and became lnsu'bordina te. During' the confusion which, ensued the Tibetana .solzefLthe opportunity ol attacking; the column which waa totally defeatfe-d, Mayor Thinks So Mayor W. D. L. Hardie is of the opinion that it can be done, and If enough, of his colleagues on the council thinic with him., fifteen-dollar electric power will be the boon Lethbridge will be able to. offeT manufacturers before the end of 1913, and they are ready to offer it Lethbridge is assured of a 600-barrel mill, and alBO a terminal elevator, thus making the first step toward building up this city as the milling centre it naturally should be. Electric power at $15.00 per horsepower is the equivalent of free gas. That opinion is held by both Mayor Hardie and Mr. Green. The latter in-, tends making some experiments in the near,future with natural gas,- and he believes his contention will be borne out. V As for electric poweiy.the city is now in a position to manufacture our- boge.nerator...'being ;capaBTe otrmanu-' fac|iirihg i lipi'se-ppAYer with Bixteen pounds of steam, whereas the: old 1 pjantrequired twenty-pounds or more.,' And as electric power Is being furnish- ' ed-now at $22.50 per horse-power net,,-,it is believed that the city can supply current from now on at $15.00, and lose very little, if any. In fact, Mr. Green declares that they should loso '�; nothing at all. Would be on Minimum Basis Of course, power would hot be furnished tq small concerns, using only a limited' horse-power at $15.00. It would be to plants requiring 100 horsepower-, or over, that would enjoy the low rate. But with milling concerns in particular, ^cheap power is a. vety special inducement, for power is one of their large items of expenie. To show how an industry helps to build up a city, Mr, Green stated that iemployees of "their mill had built'ten. residences in Lethbridge since i the concern started here. The revenue the city alone receives in taxes is,; therefore, over $500 annually. Mayor Hardie is a strong believer  in the industrial development of Leth-: bridge, and after the new charter is off the council's hands in the next two weeks, they will bend their energies in that direction, and the milling companies will oorhe in for their" fair share of consideration. ? ? * ? ft-*^ > DUKE OF A^ERCORN DEAD,' ^ & London,,*j'an,'3.~James Hajii*, * ilton, the seoojyl Duke 0f 'AJv' \-'" ? ? ? ? ? >,? ? w& ate,.
