Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 24, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta c0% TIE LETHBKIDGE 1XAILY HEKALD i'ltclay, January 24.11)13 A 1 ... � * / OF A GREAT IS REALTYfHOG IHE London, Jan. 23.-Sir George Paish, idltor of tile Statist, the well-known writer on statistics, has an article In The Statist, dealing with the inquiry into the "money trust," in which he points out the European view of the role played by the great hanks of the United States in the development of the country. These persons who are surprised to learn that the wealth of the United States is in the neighborhood of $150,-000,000,000, seem, according to Sir George, to be:under the impression that the concentration of money power and interests is opposed to the welfare of the people of the United States,, adding: "Persons who have studied the economic conditions in the United States and other countries, and are in a position to appreciate the forces making lex progress, are unable to accept the  popular vie'w.'" Sir George goes on to consider the reasons which make control by bankers of so many great corporations in the United States one of the most important factors in the permanent pros-l>erity of the enterprises over which iheir control is exercised. He thinks -his powerfutly contributes to the wonderful growth of the United States. Sir George predicts that the results of the inquiry will show that the influence of these banking houses has been wholly beneficial, and he shows how bankers in the United States have been largely instrumental in obtaining the vast amounts of capital spent in railway construction and development. BRIGHT FUTURE ASSURED THE SOUTHERN TOWN HAS STIMULATED REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT London will expropriate two houses and >three lots to complete the federal square site. MONSIEUR PAMS The Minister of Agriculture, who was Pomcare's closest candidate for ihe Presidency of France; The Cardston Globe says: Real estate is moving around Cardston and in the last yea'r a good deal of inside property has changed hands. The outside public seem to have faith in the future of Cardston, Not a bit of booming has been done by insiders or thos-a living here and not as much advertising as was done a few years back. When we look for the reason of the steady purchase of property around the town in good-si2ed chunks it is evidently brought about by the advantageous position the town of Cardston holds. It is so situated that U has a district and s trade of its own which keeps steadily up and thus keeps building steady and regular. One other factor has a great deal to do with prospects in Cardston, and that is the fact that there are five or six charters granted to railways to run through Cardston, and one has a good-sized bonus attached. The latest purchases have all been made in the last six 'weeks and quiet, ly. A "Lethe-ridge firm bought 20 acres of the west side from Staley & Stock-pole. They also purhcased a block of the Donovan adjoining from Mr. Mark Spencer and two blocks from C. J. Olsen close by. In addition they have annexed the Harker quarter on which is situated the grave yard. The Jas. P. Low quarter, north of this, has been sold to another party, and. we may say that the greater part of the land to the west of town is now held by paTties not residing in Cardston, for the fair grounds have been bought by parties living in British Columbia who may move in later. Thus the game goes on; there is no boom, but outsiders seem to like our property and want it, and are buying steadily for investment. This speaks we'l for our future and is certainly a subject for congratulation. The Card-Harris j Co. negotiated the sale of the fair! grounds; the other property passed through the hands of Mr. E. N. Barker. We expect there will be other sales to record before long, for others are nibbling at our'real estate. If we add to the above, details all the property annexed, by the International Securities in the last year, it would make a Dig list of what has actually changed hands. No doubt railroad talk has somethjng to do with this, as there is at least one road reported to be working rap/dly towards us from the [ south, and there are others coming. I Besides this there i3 no doubt taat our continued success in open competition at Dry-Farming Congresses (-and the many prizes >ve hare won have made' Is distinctly apparent that Cardston is the centre of a very rich district that can hold its own with any on the continent and therefore that Cardston. property is solid security for money invested therein. FARMERS SAY IT WILL MEAN A BIG MONEY-MAKER ALL HIS WHEAT THAT IS, ALL HE WILL SELL TO OUTSIDERS-HIS RULE FOR SEEDING She's wa on the flaymond, AUa., Jan. 22.-Henry Holmes, winner of  the Dry-Farming Congress sweepstake for the best bushel of threshed'wheat, has had a busy time cleaning and expressing the grain to the purchasers. All that is available for shipment away from the Raymond district is sold. Mr. Holmes, true to his- own district, has refused the" sales of .some grain to outside par- fties ,in""'OMler that his own neighbors may be able to avail themselves of the chance to secure seed later on.

The prize grain weighed 65% pounds to the: bushel and .notwithstanding a very dry season yielded 31 bushels to the acre, A report has been published in some of'the agricultural papers of Canada and the United States that Mr. Holmes sowed -12 bushels on 40 acres. The fact of the matter is Mr. Holmas sowed nearly a bushel to the acre. Interviewed .re1 cently, Mr. Hoimes made the statement to the representative of this paper that he thinks that less than 55 pounds would be sowing too thin. He sows hardly half a bushel of Kork-off wheat, 40 to 50 pounds of Red Fife, and only 30 pounds of Alberta Red; but Marquis requires a good 55 pounds. Mr. Holmes will next sow 80 acres of Marquis. LAW PARTNERS 8CRAP -Vancouver, 'Jan. 23.-Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper and his late law part; lier, W. it. Griffin, are now engaged in a lawsuit,'tne'dispute arising out'of differences in settling their accounts. Representatives of Middlesex County municipalities met in London and organized a publicity campaign to be undertaken in England by Re"eve T. Benstead of Strathroy. Magrath, Jan. 22.-To make Ma-grath the centre for pure bred hogs for Southern Alberta is the aim of j the local swine breeders, and If the j present outlook is any criterion to go by they will succeed marvelously well. Until about two years ago there were very few farmers engaged in this profitable branch of agficul tirre, a few scrubs being grown an nually for the farmer's table use. At about that time, however, there was a wonderful change brought about in farming conditions in this section of the province. It dawned upon the farmers that straight wheat farming was not a paying proposition. They looked about them, and discovered that the cheapest and most effective way of diversifying their operations was to put on their' land some live stock. It was then that the hog came into prominence. Today there are more than a dozen successful breeders of pure bred hogs in the Magrath district. Chief among these might be cited Peterson Bros., J. B. Ririe, George Thompson, A. R. Bennett and C. P. Sindlinger. They are all making good at the business, and are the prime movers in the scheme to make Magrath lead in the production of blooded swine. A representative of the Herald had a very interesting conversation the other day with the last named of these breeders, Mr. Sindlinger. He told a'wonderful story of success and predicted many fine things for the, future of this branch of farming in j the Magrath district. Among other things, all good but unrecorded on account of pressure of space, he said, speaking of his experience in hog raising: "In May, 1910, I bought of Oscar Miller, of Cheadle, Alta, three, females and one male, being three animals recommended by Mr. Miller as "the nucleus of a Duroc herd, chose the Duroc Jerseys because they have been demonstrated to be the best all-round lard hog for the Alberta climate. The animals I bought were i'rom the famous imported dam, Rubertha H. (829-627742A) and Quality Girl. These three sows farrowed that same year, netting nie twenty-four, good, sound healthy pigs. I sold to various farmers throughout the province and" shipped: one as far east as Maple Creek, Sask; I disposed of all my males and one female, the average price received being $23.50. And this was before they were seven months old. "I simply couldn't fill nsy orders. I received fifty letters asking for hogs in three months. . But next'year I wiH. provide for this. I intend' to �breed fifteen sows, all pure bred animals, and I bank on these giving, me a hundred pigs. I am ageing to enlarge iny building capacity in the spring, and I look for a most successful year. I have eshibited atiall the fairs of Southern Alberta, and in just pride I \ carried off most of the honors for the breed. *I can produce papers -for all my stock, as they are all registered both in Qanada and the, United States. Take it from me, Al-1 berta cannot be "beaten for raising j pure bred hogs, and I'm going far it extensively." What will probably be the finest musical event of the season, will be put on next Friday evening, when the L. D. S. choir will hold a first class concert. The best talent in the town will take part, and a thoroughly enjoyable evening is in store for all music lovers. The. proceeds will be devoted to the- general choir fund. While playing with a gun, ' supposedly to be unloaded, the eight-year-old son of Bruce Cope was shot in the leg on Saturday last, Medical aid was promptly summoned, but it was only with long and delicate operation that the bullet was extracted from the limb. According to latest reports the unfortunate lad is doing as well as can be expected. Mayor Ririe, who has been confined to his home with la. grippe for the past two weeks, is, still unable to leave his home. There is several municipal matters that ought to be attended to, but they, are being delayed until His Worship is able to meet with the remainder of the council. The upper room of the town hall has been- excellently fitted up as the permanent meeting hall of the Farm Womens' Institute. The next meeting will be held on the 29th inst., when an unusually attractive program will be rendered.. The institute Is doing splendid work, and the current year will undoubtedly prove of inestimable worth to the ladles' of the community. as- homes for. ducks iind rabbits.
