There is nothing wrong with this town, let me tell you that, although she may not be on the rosy side to the casual observer. There are lees vacant houses and stores in l,ethbridge by far than there are in Calgary in pro-ortion to the population. I have covered practically the entire city since coming here on this trip, and I know. I was here two months ago, and I can safely say that there is a very noticeable improvement since that time."

P. passes vvliich were stolen. industrial lOiicerns capitalized and managed by Lethbridge men give promise Of replacing the mythical outside concerns which every now and . tlieii announce their intention of locating here, aud tlie latest local proposition to he announced to the public is the Soutliern .\lberta Cold .Storage, Ltd.. some facts coacernlng which are given a'oove. This concern has been promoted chiefly by Secretary D. .1. Hay of the Board of Trade, and Allen Jack who. last year, was manager of the I^eth-bridge Iv.xhibitioii. Tliey grasped the excellent opportunity lying untouched and. backed by a number of the city's leading citizens, they launched their pro.iect at a time whicli is most propitious, .iudging by all the signs. The provisional directors of the company ai-e T. D. Kevin, Robert Liv-iugstoue, E. E. Carver, Allen Jack and D. .] Hay. The proposition is already on a good Solid footing, especially  for a project just announced. Before making its bow to the public the neat sura of .?20,00(j had been'subscribed. One tiling that adds to the attractiveness of a cold storage project is the Dominion government subsidy, it lias taken some time to negotiate this, but. once the government assured itself of the genuineness of the promoters' plans, it was easily settled and the papers are signed, seale!i as the work progresses. This makes the stock especially .attractive for it means that it is worth a premium ot $30 or $40 a share right at the outset, the only strings the government puts on the subsidy being tliat the plant shall be kept in operation and that it shall be conducted to build up the. meat, dairy and poultry industries in the district in which the plant is ly-catud. Stock is new being offered the pub- . lie by J. Harris & Co., aud is finding ready sale. Constructioa operations will be ''ommeiiced in the spring, and it i.s hoped to have the plant, which, will cost !f70,000, ready for business in the fall. Tlic government has given its undertaking' that it will not subsidise any other cold storage proposition in Southern .\lberta. "I am satisfied." said Secretary Hay ot the Board of Trade, on Thursday, "that the proposition is a mighty ^ood one that will appeal to our own oeople. The need for such a plant s here. \Our dressed meat, butter tnd eggs, poultry and truck garden iidustrics demand some such medium hrough which marketing may be lone successfully. These industries .ire growing' rapidly too and must lock to mai'kets further from home. There is tin excellent market in the mining area through the Crow's N'est Pass and Kastpin B. C.. and with cold storage facilities this market may be taken advantage ol' Then, too, tlic cold storage will help farmers to finance. Produce, for which there i.s no ready market when the farmer is ready to sell, may bo stored In the plant, ;.nd on the storage checks given, tilt; banks will lend up to 75 or SO per cent, of tlie value ot the commodities. Ail the cold storage plants west of Winnipeg are making money. Situated as we will be in the middle of tlio oldest irrigated tract in the west, and just on the edge of a big ciisli market, there is no reason why we should not do iis well, or show even better returns."
