For rears it was a mere mining town. Four or five years ago it began its career as an agricultural and industrial centre. Then it became a railway centre. But through all these stages it was not recognized by the outside world as being in the same class of cities as Regina, Brandon, Saskatoon, Calgarv, and Edmonton. These cities were constantly in the public eye while publicity came slowly to Lethbridge. Even yet it seems as if it were almost impossible for the outside world to realize that Lethbridge in a year or two has rank cd up with the best. The growth and prosperity of Lethbridge has been the talk of the country but few realized just what it meant. With a population of ten thousand Letkbridge ranks eighth among the cities between the Great Lakes and the Rocky Mountains and its percentage of growth during the last three years was the greatest of any. Only three prairie cities hat* had a larger building permit record during the past year. The school population is about twelve hundred in the public and separate schools, and nearly thirty teachers are employed. There are many statistics which might be given to show how Lethbridge stands as a city, as a trade centre, and as the metropolis of a lar^e portion of Alberta. REAL ESTATE VALUES A comparative statement published by a Winnipeg paper shows that real estate values in the business district of Lethbridge are not at all high. According to this statement the highest price paid in Lethbridge during the past year for business property was $600 a foot. In Brandon it was $1,200, in Calgary $2,300, in Edmonton $2,000, in Regina $1,000, in Saskatoon $700. The general price in Lethbridge for a good central location is stated to be $375 a foot, while in Brandon it was $500, in Calgary $1750, in Edmonton $1,000, in Regina $675, and in Saskatoon $400. Some lower places are Medicine Hat $150. Moose Jaw $200, Portage la Prairie $200, Prince Albert $200. Some of these places are larger than Lethbridge, while others have a small er population. London. Jan. 7.-The political situation in a nutshell is "Conservatives are hoping and the Liberals are expecting." Sir Charles Dilke saya the Liberals may lose a few seats in London which may have a slight effect on the country but that victory is assured. Lloyd-George addressing an enthusiastic meeung of 6,000 people at Reading on Saturday said he found everywhere the same determination on the part of the people to win . (Cheers). Their opponents were constantly quoting colonial opinion. They said: "Here are our kinsmen. Why don't you take them by the hand ? They are asking you to pay two shillings duty on wheat. W'hy don t you do that? "Their colonial brethren have been watching the budget fight with great interest and were expressing 'h^ir opinions very freely about it. They were thoroughly ashamed of their Lordships friends over the way. They decided to pay up like men." (Cheers) He thought the taril'f reformers were rather glad their coionisi kinsmen were across the seas and not in Eng-lan" to take part in the election. The Chancellor then proceeded to chaff scare-makers who mistook the rattling of milkmen's cans in the mornings for the jingle of spurs of German Hussars. "In men and material we were three to one on sea compared to Germany. Their opponents, those great Imperial souls, imagine that one German would eat three Britishers as if they were Frankfurt sausages." He then dwelt with the provision made in the budget for social reform. They were all for security of capital, but he wanted security for dally bread. .Men who never knew the sting of poverty closely flung out human provision lor sick, wounded and unemployed sol diers of industry and rejected the budget. He emphasized the fact that he had raised 18,000,000 pounds for social reform. "We mean to drive hunger away from our hearths and our opponents' contribution to the problem is a two shilling tax on bread," he concluded amid cheers. The meeting was interrupted by suffragettes who begrimed and bedraggled emerged from beneath the platform and were summarily ejected. The ilarquis of Salisbury had a trying time at St. Albans where cheers were given for Liberal candidates. Sev eral other peers spoke at various plac es. It is stated that the Conservative leaders have revised the list of campaigning of the lords. There are tri-ea^'ular fights in liity-two constituencies in which twenty-eight are official labor candidates, five imofficial and eleven Socialists. Mr. Balfour has arranged for six speeches before the campaign.
