To Citizens of On account or the rainy weatHer tliat we usually have ditring the lat- ter part' ot June and" owing to the I act that we were unfortunate enough this year lo havn rain every day ol our Fair, them has been considerable criticism regarding the changing of the date of the Exposition, we wish to explain lo you some of the prin- cipal reasons lor making this change. For the past three years we have members. of Canada Fair Circuit, The members uf the circuit "and dales this year are1 as follows LetJihridge, June 3-J-2S'; CaJgary, JunD 30-Jnly 5 Winnipeg, July S-1G; Brandon, with the Dominion Exposi- tion July 15-25 Regius, July 28- August 2 Saskatoon, August -i-3 Edmonton, August II-J6. We have in. the past been the last on thft circuit, lollowing Edmonton, with the Fair thn third week in Au- gust. Our representatives attended the meeting ol the Association this year, were instrutied to try to ob- tain a date in -'uly, hut this was to ho impossible, and had to remain cllhi-r lost 'on the circuit, or come in Tits t. Our principal reason for deciding lo come in first was that, in August the farmers, upon whom wo largely depend tcr attend- ance, are in the middle of harvest, last week in June the farmers are jnore 3t libertv, nnd we could and diil obtain iraiiis. It is contccded hy sotnt ilmt our fair should lie in September, and that this year it is much loo early. In connection with this, you v notn by the above list, that the two biggest fairs in Western gary and Winnipeg, 'are next week and the week following ours, and a September Fair have meant jumping out of the'circuit. Being in the circuit means thai bave live stock exhibitions liore from all over Cnnaila and we have the best rare borKCs that arc raced io West- ern Canada. Our races arc handled by professional grand circuit men. are enabled to high class .attrac- tions for the platform and the mid- way, none of which we could hopt to IISTP, if we tt-cre out of the cir- cuit.
