TUESDAY; JULY i, ion THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE FIVE SECRETARY MM Conditions Not So Bad as Some Reports Would Indicate He Declares The south country is not anywiiere Hear as badly off as.has been reported according to Secretary Firiley of the Associate Hoards of Trade, who re- turned yesterday trii) to Sweet Gi'ass. where he accompanied Joseph JIacrtonald for the Fourth of July cel- ebration of the residents along the boundary." "There arc signs of Jt having: been very dry in many places, but there w.Hl be a fairly good crop in most of the districts south said .Mr. Finley, "There are fine fields of grain, around New Dayton, Warner and Milk River, and particularly east -.of Milk Hlver, and there has heen lots of rain throughout the homestead .country, along Uie Saskatchewan bor- der. South of Milk River., there is not likely to be a very large amount of grain harvested; iu fact, about all that i will be obtainable will be some feed. JThis is.the condition all around Coutts ,'and over Into-Montana. They have eeeu it raining many days miles a'way, but have had only a' small shower or two. But they got the usual Fourth of July shower Saturday afternoon, and it was a dandy, continuing through most of the night. This will assure them a good feed crop, and some of them will get their seed money back. Around AVaraer to the east there has been lots of rain and the crops are looking good, and-just east of New Dayton' there are fields that look like what is usually called a 25-busheI crop.' But they -will need more rain yet to make it in lots of these "One cf th.3 most gratifying reports I heard all along was that the home- steaders wore coming into: their own tills fall, for the entire homestead country, east of the Gontts line lias had, Jots of rain, and the crops are re- ported excellent. "There is market! Increase, in tho quantity of potatoes In this year over last year in the country between hern and Coutts, but there will be need for all of them for the local markets. Poultry, too, is getting more atten- tion and every farmer has a good lot of chickens this summer, and will have a good income from them 'when marketed this fall and winter. Turk- eys are not as plentiful as a year ago, while ducks are very scarce. Egg? are not aa .plentiful all along the Hue as they have and are likely to command a higher price in the mar- kets shortly, in fact, they are going up a little every week now, I made arangements. for the ship- ment to the Lethbridge public market of a large quantity of choice nutter and fresh eggs regularly throughout the summer and the people of the south country are already be- ginning to. appreciate the advantage this market will be to them. It will. ie but a short time before they will have the time-to come into market; themselves, instead of sending their products, and there are some forming co-operative marketing associations, so that each member takes a turn at going to market and selling the pro- ducts of the ones in the association. Tfols should be adopted everywhere, as it 'will have a tendency to Interest more farmers to-supply the market and satisfy the consumers they are getting their produce direct from the 'anriers." HE-SPOT FDR Oil Campany Working Quietly in the Lunclbrek Field- Derrick Erected Travers, Alia., .July was a shock to the people here to learn that :'ffcm. .Turner lost.- life in the Hill- crest mine. His brother "Will also lost liis life. These people bad-been gone 'from here for a year and a-half. The C.P.R. agent sold twenty-five Hots here. Mr. Arnot, the local agent; flias sold two .Air. Roads, from near Champion, just completed a 'well for Mr. Van- >liornc, getting plenty of water at 11.5 ;luet. He Is now drilling for Mr. Erick- son. Most of the farmers have started 'freaking since the recent rains. George Taylor's house burned down Sunday morning. He had started ithe fire and Mrs. Taylor had gone out 'to feed the chickens. The oldest child came out, carrying the baby, say- ing the house was on fire. They were to save anything, and forty dollars in money was burned, too. i They live about ten miles north of town. _ Jerry Rjcketts returned Friday from the north, having purchased 160 acres, and leased the rest of the sec- tion, with plenty- of -water and trees on it. They -will live between EI- mora and-Huxley; Alta., on the G. T. P, railroad. On our own- .elevator they have started cribbing now, and part of the lumber is here for the bell vie eleva- tor. Mr. Reynolds has put up a small harness shop on Main street. ULSTER WILL NOT COME IN AT POINT OF BAYONET London, July 'Edward Car- son, the Ulster Unionist leader, ad- dressing a gathering of Unionists in South London tonight, declared that- "Ulster would reject fcny proposals made by the government, placing a time limit of "any wt on her ei'clu- Gloii from Home.Rule. "If ever we go into the Irish Parlia- iie said, "we shall go in not at the point of the bayonet but of our iwn free will." Luhdbrcck; July 0. Whatever may lie the result of their enterprise, no one can accused the people with noisin, themselves abroad, iu their endeavor to strike oil.' The same conservative siicnct1, which has prevailed from the very start of their operations, has caused a great deal of speculation as to the company's intentions, and mure than one. expression of surprise was heard during the last few days, set1, a large and businesslike der- rick fully erected cci the site for their first, well, situated on Sec. 4, Tp. 8, R. 2, W. a. Several carloads of i chinery, too, wended their way to the scene of operations, and by what can he learned, it will only, lie a week or so before the second derrick is completed. 'Already the activities of this com- pany have caused more than a pass- ing flurry in leases, as a large deal in township f> was consummated on Saturday last, at a fancy price per acre. It is with a lot of difficulty one has to learn of the Faber people's doings, but it can be stated on good au- thority, that the drill will make its way in the early part 01 this week, to that part of the earth, which may mean riches for the lucky ones. By the amount of money the syndicate ate spending, they must feel fairly sanguine as to the ultimate outcome of their enterprise, as UK? machinery alone, must have caused a large de- (crease in their bank account. This, with the rest' of the mater- their operation, can only cause one to hope that their virtue may have its reward, and that gushers will spring up, where now, only sites can be seen. .ELECTION A- HOLIDAY?
