Ilobittson �nA Haixling niovoJ the following resolution: "That d's ctune in. If it came to Letl^ridgc, it must be subject to the control of LetMrMge stockholders. It shoul'd alao be subject t* an agreement to stay here. It would employ from 30 to 60 hands. It would hamlle from aoo.OOO to 600.000 lbs. of wool. It asked for no bonus, no special water rate, no tax-exeinption or free sit but wished the Council to submit tp the ratepayers a by-taw guarant^je -tog boodii. Mr. McPheraon the reprcsout.ttivc of the Medicine Hat Co., remarko.-l that if this mill came another in -�diiatry wouM follow wWidi wouWI eaq>loy,.,50 hands. �. A. Cunningham estimated that tte Medi^ne Bnt building andground would sell for $iaO,000 which (^ould be uaed to retire � portion of tho booda. AM. Oliver wanted to know what guarsntae there was that the luiii-p*ny would he i|ble to sell the Mmti ciae Bat property %t that price. Mr. -4fcPberson 8�id that tncre wera two compapies itteto u :)jn.'. u third company for making biscuits. The prospect* for disposing '.if the buildinc?.and land wore goat.!. Mr. Hordialf "How soon will you come hero?" Mr. McPheraon: "Just as soon as we can gil the building up here and work slackens so the machinery can bo transferred. We wiH bejpin the building at once and .1 expc-ci we will be hero by December 1." The Mayor: "What privileges hav# you at ttie Hat?" Mr. McFberaon: "Exemption from taxation for 10 years.". The Mayor: "Are (hey noi willing to guaranty the honds there?" Mr. Mcnterson: '"'Hiere was a di�-agroeroent in council and the roattoi has become badly tangled, Time is being lost; and the delay is very injurious. We must know promptly where �e sitand, and we cannot do so theiw." The Mayor: "When in the Itet I �-ent through, the mill. The building is exceedingly'gooA-I should sey worth $25,000 to $80.0i-}�ons asstirniicc libnt itho mill would locate here no matJIer what an.v ot'hcr place might oiler. Mr. rreoman douMod if guaraintee-inK 'lK>nany .sihoukl issue .O00 per annum accoi-ding to the amount of business 'done. Conipaivd with the eastern mills which purchase our wool, a nvill here would save 5c per poun;� of btianket in freight alone, and ehi.s on an otitput of 200,000 lbs. per annum would be $10,000. AkI. Robinson: "Tho interest on the 'bonds to be g^iarantecd would be o�ly $2000 per annum. Are jou sure of a mnfket for your product?" Mr. McPheraon said they already had orders in advance to thii? amount of some $12,0(iO. Enough 'blonk'cts were so!d in the West to take their output many times over. 'Hioywould also recc-i\c thrtr share of ipovern-mcivt orders. Mr. Freetnan mode an cfTective speech. He declared t'hat ifho jgreat thing to ido in buiMing up Lctih -bridge was to geit the first lindus -tries here. These would then attract others. Lethbridge wos a 'botiter location, was better stiuatied for an induMrial centre than Calgnry or Medicine t{g so. Mayor Rogers agreed that it was a rather Itaid principle to guarantee bonds, but we needed industries and if We got a flour null and woollen mall, we would get a standing as an industrial point. Biscuit factories and knitting factories might natur-alb' be expected to follow. He did not believe the city was taking any risk. Mr. Cunningham: Every indiiatry wants to know what the city^ will giVc. Aid. Oliver; Yes, and thoit is what ruincJ niony a place in Ontario. T'lio Mayor felt the city had good protection in the mortigagky on the plant aivd buiMinga. The company wouid not got the guarantee until the mill was bt/ilt ond the plant re-niovetl. ^ Aid. nobin renmrked that the would have to 'be decided up-om �l)y t!ie ratepayers anyway. Mr. Cunni'ng^am polntod out that Leih'bridgo was a growing lk?ld. It wa� a xiistribnting centre second to nono. It I'oukI not be excelled in its facilities for cheap 'uel and ppwer.

That a graded school may do '.ho most efhcient work; nwy lie a unit instead of a num'tier ot seporate 'rte-partmcntti under one roof, the work of each department must lie dovetailed Into both that which proce.3ds and that which follows. There must be no overlapping or no misses. T* obtain this adequate supervision and direction of^ the work 'in all grades is necessary.
