A lengthy interview with him appeared in the Free Press. He covered the sub- jects of irrigation, ranching, fall wheat, beet sugar and climate. The mayor told the newspaper man that Lethbridge could otl'argreater inducements 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 i the coal mines could bo had at 50c la ton. The mayor also made the very wise suggestion that Lethbridge would be an appropriate place for [the manufacture of candies, bis- I cuits or other industries in whicl I sugar is the principal ingredient Lethbridge. he pointed out. mus also Ixicome a great milling centre Tho town gives no bonus to in [dustries. but. otters' liberal exemp i tion from taxes for a number of years. _ _ continued Mr. Rogers, "to my mind is much [better than any part of California, and is fully equal, if not bettor, than Denver, Colorado T have j much experience in the matter and believe if the consumptives of Canada could be sent there in the lie month.
