FISHERIES OF ALBERTA The annual of Marine and Fisheries contains an. interesting ap- pendix from, the pen of Harrison Young; Edmonton, on the Fisheries of Alberta. Few people in the province except a few of the old timers realize the asset the province has in its fisheries There are over 15 lakes in the pro- vince which can be developed into ex- cellent fishing grounds. As yet the only -two lakes fished for commercial purposes White Whale and pigeon The quality of the fish in pounds, while the had nothing whatever to do with average net price to 'the patron 21.10C- per pound.

Hon. Finlay in-addres- sing complained that the government creameries -were not being supported' by the farmers. A resolution was passed by the con- vention and will be presented to the minister, of agriculture asking for the establishment of a Rovernment pork curing and canning plant, operated upon the same basis as gor- ernraent creameries.

NANTON ABOUT THE SQUARE PROBLEM (From Monday's Daily.) When he in the city on Satur- day A. M. Xanton, the managing di- rector of the Alberta-Railway and Ir. rigation Company was interviewed by" the Herald concerning the Com- pany's position regarding the public square. When asked if the Company would agree to the exchange of the plot in the centra held by the com- pany for a similar area risewhtw on the square, Mr. Nanton replied that he understood from the press that a Mr. Canton said that'the returns coming- -to the company's office indi- cated "a great rush of the United States this spring. A, largo amount of land was being sold to actual settlers and others who htut bought two or three years ago were. coming to settle this spring. settlement would be mainly, around Warner and Milk River, while a many were coming-to the land soutk of Taber and east of Stirling. The Herald man remarked that tile people of Lethbridge would like to committee hud been appointed by the see tha. land north and east, of city council to place this matter .be- fore the company and that he rather expected to see tlie committee .or hear from theoi on this prop- osition "on this visit to the city. In the-meantime it would -no-t be right for him to say what the com- pany would da until he knew definite- ly what the council had to propose. The Company would, as it had al- ways done, try to meet the -wishes of the city and do what it 'thought best for the city. Asked upon what condition he city filled up and inquired if that land was now on the market. Nanton replied that every acre of the company owned was -the market but that the chief was for the cheaper full wheat Lands at present "und that the dearer irri- gated land was not going very: fast- He could not say when the area.1 in-' quired of settled.
