A lengthy interview with him appeared in the Free Press. He covered the sub-jects ot irrigation, ranching, fall wheat, beet sugar and climate. The mayor told the newspaper man that Lethbridge could of!'.>rgreater iudiicemeutb to industries than any town in the west, as it was in a position to furnish power and water at a nominal figure, and slack from the coal mines could lie had at 50c a ton. The mayor also made the very wise suggestion that Lethbridge-would be an appropriate place for the manufacture of candies, bis. cuits or oilier industries in which sugar is the principd ingredient. Lethbridge. he |>oiutcd out. must also liecome a gnat milling centre. The town gives no bonus to industries, but offers liberal exemption from taxes for a number of years. "This section." continued Mr. Rogers, "to my mind is much better than any part of California, and is fully equal, if not better, than Denver. Colorado I have much cx|iericiuv in the matter and belie\c if the consumptives of Canada could be sent there in the early stages of the disease, fully ill) ]xjr cent of jmtients suffering from | it would recover. 1 greatly regret ( McCrea.

This 1 fear is due to the narrow feeling ol provincial governments, who, in awarding their grants, inai.e conditions that the money must be spent within the jurisdiction of their own territories. When a man hashing trouble, he requires the best conditions possible. These can be obtained in Alberta. We have there high uliitude with dry mild climate and an abundance of sunshine, all of which are conducive to health for the patient with pulmonary diseases. The Dominion government should set aside a township of land, and the govern Sunday evening, in addition to the hymns und anthems, a beautiful solo entitled, "Oh Dry Those Tears" wus sung by Miss Allie Tiffin. The uudienct was very large and appreciative. In the song and social service at the close of the evening service the Young Men's parlor was filled to its utmost capacity. Application is to be made to the egislature at its coming session for an a�.t to incorporate the Alberta Koui'ueni Railway, which proposes to build lines iroin this town. One branch will run from here to Calgary, (mother in a westerly direction towards Hiitisli Columbia and a third from Macleod to intersect the branch from here to Cal-licine Hat. _ .
