JOHN ROSS DEAD Ottawa, Jan. 28.-John Ross, of- Dillingham, Alta., who was Liberal candidate In the provincial bye-election pf OctobeT, -1911, In which he was,defeated by,John Kemmls, died suddenly 'in Scotland, Word to that 'effect, has been received by �Dr.'Warnook, MVP., Mr. Ross was a wealthy rancher, and a man, who was very highly esteemed by all who knew him. The late^Jdin_vRoss,^9t Dllllnahain, Alta., who- died suddenfy in Scotland With the confirmation of the an-nouncercent made last year that the International Harvester Co., of America, Would build a four-storey warehouse here, there is every indication of an active season in building circles in Lethbridge, and somewhat over half a million dollars' -worth of construction is practically decided upon. Lethbridge is considered the logical distributing centre of Southern Alberta toy the International Harvester Co., and as such, they intend to make provision here for the'business of the future, During the summer they will build a warehouse which will compare favorably with any they have built on the American, continent. It will be one of the largest and best buildings in Lethbridge. costing over $100,000. The: exaet location has., not yet been decided upon, but it will toe on one of two sites owned by the company in North Lethbridge. Early last spring the company bought- eleven lots on First avenue; about two blocks east of Thirteenth street crossing. Later in the'year they .purchased another site of eleven lots on-Second avenue North;; just. west of the north app*roach to the Ninth street overhead bridge. Both sites are already served toy spur track, and the First avenue site is now being used as a shipping yard. At the City Council meeting late yesterday afternoon, Mayor Hardie stated that he had been approached by Charles McClenaghan, superintendent of the company's - branches in Southe-m Alberta, and asked to make-certain provisions for supplying them with public utilities in case they build here. They want water, light, power, sewer, and graded - streets brought to the site on which they may erect their building, and ..some asurance that in future it, will be served the street 'railway,' al: though they did not hold out for the latter' concession. Of course, the company is not asking for these, conveniences as concessions, but wish to make their plant here up-to-date. The requsst was favorably considered by all the members of the Council present at yesterday's meeting, and at the special meeting- on Friday afternoon, Aid. Aird, chairman cf the -Public Works' committee, will report- back. � In the imeantime,. the city engineer will -be scon'sulted,- and the cost of making -t,h'e>-netiesti'ary ex-' tensions will be estimated: �* The Manager; Speaks .:. "I returned from Chicago a few days'.ago, after attending; the annual nieetlng- of the; directors ,:of 'the "In? ternational Har.vestsr Co,," said Mr. McClbnaghan, this morning, "and they, have given us-an appropriation for the building he*o,*-Just -as-'soon as we can - decide on .which' site ,the-building should toe be started. , . (Continued on gage'9).' One year ago, there were miners aplenty in the Southern Alberta coal fields, who could find no work during the winter months. The mines were working, but during the strike period the whole prairie country had been flooded with American coal, and the mining companies were unable to find a market for their supply. This 'winter it is different, and instead of idle miners, it is almost impossible to find enough men to meet the demand. All the mines through the Pass are working to full capacity and every miner is employed. The closing down of a few of the mines has not had any effect on the labor market, for immediately the men thrown out of work are snapped up by other concerns. This pleasing condition of affairs among the miners was shown, when the Herald today investigated a complaint from Raymond that a. scarcity of coal prevailed there during the recent cold snap. In this connection, the Raymond Leader, in an editorial article states: "For the past two weeks, the people of Raymond have been very much inconvenienced owing to the fact that there has been practically no coal in town. For ten days both dealers were out of coal, and those unlucky people 'who happened to be out at the same time either burned their neighbor's chicken coop, or lived with their more fortunate friends. This shortage of. coal at a time like this is a serious proposition." Inquiry at the offices of the Gait Collieries this morning' confirmed the report; tout- the-officials-laid the blame at the door of the coal dealers of rtaymohd. The dealers do not keep a .large enough supply :on hand, and, as the Gait Collieries' have as many orders as they can possibly handle, the dealers who do not have their orders booked in advance find themselves Without coal, while waiting their turn to get their orders filled. There are about 350 men employed at the mines of the Gait Collieries. The mines are working only one shift -but this is owing to the fact that enough miners cannot ^be obtained to put on a double shift. However, more coal is being raised than ever in the history of the mines. More coal is going out-of this, division of the C. P. R. than ever before. But the country is rapidly filling up with settlers, with the result that the market is growing wider, and the demand increasingly greater. The atosence of American coal, owing to strikes in the coal fields in the United. States* has also increased the demands on the coal fields of this section of th� country, and the 1912-13 season will bo set down as the most; prosperous: -year in the history of the coal mine* of the Southern Alberta field.
