J. Ross Robertson, the foremost Mason in 'Canada and ^ the founder and stay of one 'Of the city's finest charitable 'institutions, the Sick Children's Hospital, is the owner. er than he could when times wore generally good. A period of financial depression works no hardship on the salaried portion of the population as long as the salaries are continued at the standard to wfiich they were raised during the more prosperous times. i --- THE FINANCIAL STRINGENCY Some favorable signs of improvement arc making their appearance. The Uank of England rate has been reduced from seven to six per cent., confidence in the United States banks has boon restored, and there is considerable activity in the bond market So far as Canada is concerned, the most important of the above facts, is the sign of the loosening of money ! for the purchase of bonds. This will hold the student' body to the college. It is argued in favor of having the college and. university together, that -there will Iw better professors lecturing in the college ns the university professors will assist. This is really one of the great arguments against the idea. These professors consider this college a secondary concern. They do not lecture from the standpoint of the former or of the students before him. The universityjlec turer on botany, chemistry, geology, natural philosophy, civil law or hy-geine can not and docs not do so from the agricultural point of viow and henco his teachings are not prnc tical or valuable.

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 province which can be developed into excellent fishing grounds. As yet the only two lakes fished for commercial purposes are White Whale and Pigeon Lakes. The quality of the fish in ALBERTA'S WHEAT BELT In a work published in the United States in 1859, it was held that wheat could not be successfully grown west or north of Idaho . Ernest Thompson Seton, who had spent several seasons in northern Canada has pushed the wheat line far enough north to include a great, part of the Yukon and all 'of Alberta in the wheat belt of Canada. Last year the member for the Yu-~koa produced a sample of wheat grown at Dawson in the House of Commons -which was greeted with patriotic cheers from the entire house. Westward and northward the wheat line holds its sway. This will become as currant a saying as the well known statement of Empire. is Alberta Red ^continues to im- Tlon. Hudolphe Lemieux on his return from Japan had the following to say: "The Associated Press of the United States has stated that my mission to the Orient was a failure. The reason they gave for the failure was that 1 had not called on the American minister in Tokio. But. I had nothing whatever to do with the American minister. My business was a serious one with the Japanese government, and I was not respons iblo in any degree to the rcpresentu tive of a foreign power. I wish to be judged by my own parliament, by the people and the press of my own country, and not by the American Associated Press." GOVERNMENT CANNERY _/ Alberta / Farmers' Association .

PROTECT YOUR FALL WHEAT (Magrath Pioneer) The Pioneer had an interesting conversation with J. F. Bradshaw, one of Magrath's leading farmers. Mr. Bradshaw says that where the ground was well prepared by being thoroughly worked up the fall wheat is progressing nicely. The 'action [of the wind in this particular forma a dust mulch, and this retains the moisture. During this dry weather, horseB and cattle should be kept off the fields as they are doing much to destroy it. Speaking of the snow storm in September, Mr. Bradshaw said, "If it hadn't been for that big 9now storm we cried so much about, I wouldn't have given you this much (with a snap of the finger) for all the fall grain in this country." There is sufficient moisture where proper "cultivation has conserved the same. The keeping of horses from the fields of grain is an item that should not be overlooked. TABER IS O. K. Has anyone seen the latest American and eastern papers with big headlines "No snow in Southern Alberta," Thermometer registers from 34 to 52 ait I.ethbridge this week," "January baseball at Claresholm, Alberta," Should not these be given prominence similar to the September snow storm and the cattle (Calgary Albertan.) H. F. Annable, real estate- dealer, of Taber, is in the city. Mr. An-ablc reports that the financial depression has not yet tcached Taber. The coal mines are working and the monthly pay roll is steadily increasing with each month as new properties are being opened up. In fact, he said, business is improving rather , than dropping off. | At the present tlnte-Taber has .-i population of over 2,000 and the prospect's are that it will be doubled in the next year. Building operations- have continvied all winter, mid if the present weather continues will be continuously kept up. Edmonton, Jan. 11.-Over 000 delegates from all parts of Alberta were present at the third nnnuu'l convention of the Alberta Farmers' Association held here Wednesday and Thursday. Hon. W. T. Finlny in-addressing the~�*invcntion complained that the government creameries were not being supported by the farmers. A resolution was passed by the convention and will be presented to the luiiiisUT of agriculture asking for the estublialinienV of a government pork and bu�f curing and canning plant, operated upon tlie same basis as gor-crnnu'iit creameries. A resolution was also passed endorsing the actifin of the Provincial and Dominion government in arranging for a supply of seed grain for the coming spring. DID] NOT SE MR. NANTON ABOUT THE SQUARE PROBLEM (From Monday's Daily.) When he was in the city on Satxir-day A. M. Nan ton, the managing director of the Alberta; Railway and Ir rigation Company wok interviewed by the Herald concerning the Company's position regarding the public square. When asked if the Company would agree to the exchange of the plot in the centre held by the company for a similar area elsewhere on the square, Mr. Nun ton replied that he understood from the press that a committee had been appointed by the city council to place this matter before the company and that he rather exacted to see the committee or hear from them on this proposition ' on this visit to the city. In the meantime it would not be right for him to say whn-t the company would do until he knew definitely what the council had to propose. The Company would, as it had always done, try to meet the wishes of the city and do what it thought best for the city. Asked upon what condition ho would favorably consider the transfer of the centre area to the city by sale or gift Mr. Nanton said he would rather say nothing until the city's proposition were placed before, him. Mr. Nanton said that the returns cominq: to the company's office indicated a great rush of settlers fro*� the United States this spring. A largo amount of land was being sold to actual settlers and others who had bought two or three years ago were, coming to settle this spring. Th*, settlement would be mainly aronnrf Warner and Milk Kiver, while a> great many wore coming to the land south of Taber and east of Stirling. The Herald man remarked that tfee people of Lethbridge would like to sea the land north and east of the city filled up and inquired if that land was now on the market. -Mr. Nanton replied that every acre of land that the company owned was on the market but that the chief demaad was for the cheaper fall wheat lands at present and that the dearer irrigated land was not going vory fast. He could not say when the area' in- ' quired of would be settled. When asked this morning as to whs ther tho committee from the City Council has seen A. M. Nanton concerning the square, Mayor Hondersoa said that^'the committee had not �ee� him as he did not gco tho use of ia-tervicwing or communicating with anj-one but E. T. Gait, who knew all about the matter and Mr. Naatoa did not. titampede that winter? didn't happen last The Seed Fair and" Market to be held here mixt Saturday should be the best object lesson on the grain growing possibilities of this district, that it is possible to have. The exhibits should be numerous, they are sure to be good. x It was with deep regret that the Agricuitaral Society accepted -the'resignation of Secretary Treasurer A. E, Humphries. The wonderful success of. tho Society's effort to increase the number and quality of the exhibits last year was almost entirely due to his energy. From the time he accepted the position he was always on the lookout for exhibits and ho was, directly responsible for the splendid exhibits of horses. The Society appointed a worthy successor in Major Burnett but he will have to travel pretty fast to keep up with the pace set by the retiring secretary. He will do it, however, and the fair of 1908 will be greater than ever.
