JAPS COMING TO ALBERTA s '--- It is Definitely Announced that Land has been Purchased near Gleichen and Two Hundred of the Dark hip s will Come Out and Raise Beets (Western Associated Press.) Vancouver, Jan. 6.-Nag Tany, a well known Japanese resident of Canada for several years, left for Tokio today, to complete' arrangements for a colonization scheme in Canada. He has purchased twenty-five thousand acres of irrigated C. P. R. lands out of Calgary. A company is incorporated for half a million yen. Two hundred Japanese will be brought over early in the spring to start operations. Sugar beets will be grown and a refinery erected. The Japanese government is being severely criticized in Japn, said Tany in an interview, for agreeing to limit imigration to Canada. As a matter of fact, Japanese people wish to come to Canada and many expect to come. A company is being organized in Japan' for the purpose of starting a newspaper in British Columbia to take our side and show people here it is to their interest to be friendly with subjects of the Mikado and not only to welcome them but to treat them well when they arrive. You will see that arrangements will be made for thousands of the better class of Japanese to come here and other parts of Canada in the near future. We wish to come here and start a vigorous campaign in favor of Japanese being allowed to live here peaceably.

Hon.W.H.dishing, pnivin-eial minister of public works, was in the city, having coine down for the purpose of selecting a site for the court house to be erected here. The matter wits discussed by the council, Mr. Cushing discussed it with some of the citizens who are not on the council, hnd wound up by, meeting a committee from the council. Two very distinct opinions were expressed. The minister of Public Works made himself pluin that the choice of the site was to rest with the people of Lethbridge. The Government would place the building where the city thought best. Mayor Henderson and Aid. Macbeth were opposed to having the, square cut up and used for buildings, the nrayor's idea being to have the Dominion and Provincial Governments unite with the city and erect one' lingo building costing $2.10,000 to $300,000, which would serve all'three. Aid. Mucbeh was opposed to using the square for buildings under any circumstances. Aid. Adams and Cunningham, the remaining members of the Council's committee expressed themselves willing to have the square used for public buildings provided they were urranged so as to have a civdita bio appt-a ranee. At the discussion ih the Council the mayor said that he had consulted with Manager Naismith of the A. R. and I. Co. as to the cuni|niny'a consent to an e.xchange of the plot in the centre of the square fur some other portion and hod been assured that the company would oppose nothing that was in the interests of tho city. They would want to be assured that any buildings erected on the square would be creditable structure. While the Council was in session a phone message was received saying that the H^.
