Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 12, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX THE LKTHBRinr.E DAILY WKPNTCSDAY. 12, inn; Nothing Better for that "All-in Hot Feeling than a Refreshing Glass of Crystal Butter Milk When the sun is hot ami you sinn Illter it would be next l-'ebruary before the plant could be in operation. Mr. Huberts, of Roberts Filler Co., is In the city today conferring with Commissioners Grace and Free- man. giving them estimates on the li-ost of the proposed gallon 'plant here and a general idea of the construction as related 10 the present i pumping plain. It expected that :another nitration expert will be in the city soon, and within u ample of j the council should be possessed of enough information to award u con- tract. Mr. Roberts assured tin: Herald this morning thai his filter would furnishl the residents of Lethbridge with' water Pt-'i' t'cnt. pure, without! using chloriliation.

Ottawa. July are being made by the department of the interior to collect the larger part of the advances for seed grain made to western farmers for the crop of last year. Over ton million dollars was loaned by the Dominion government to the drought-stricken districts of south- em Alberta and southern Saskatche- wan last year. Despite the heavy crop, many farmers were in no pos- ition to make any payments and the government gave them generous treat- ment. This year it is hoped to coi- iect the larger part of this amount. A head otfice has been opened in Moose Jaw, with Harry Cuttle, chief inspector of homestead agencies, in aharge. Arrangements have been made to have payments made to post- masters, while no collections 'will be made through elevators as In the past. Winnipeg. July Financial Post says: "It can be stated anthor- itatively that the next Canadian war loan -wilt be offered to the public in September. The amount has not yet been settled, but it will likely be tor one hundred million dollars. It is sible as in the case of the tirst loan j the amount will be fixed at fifty mil- lions and if the loan is over-subscrib- ed, the total will be raised to say one hundred millions. Lite the first j flotation it will be popular in char- acter. it will be widely advertised and an effort will be made to have the general public widely subscribe. The terms of the loan have, of course, not yet been considered by Sir Thomas White, but it is anticipated that it. will bo on similar lines to that floated last November. Ottawa has more confidence now ilniii it had. a year ago in placing on the Canadian market a domestic war' loan. The Canadian public was un- accustomed to investing in govern- ment or any .other'bonds. We had been borrowing hundreds of millions annually while the govern- ment had as a matter "almost of habit, aimed to the London for funds. even 'if there 'was. ihe money in the .public would invest in Dominion securities was a question of considerable doubt. Several prominent financiers express-, ed the the -time million dollars was-abouY.the'.llmk of subscriptions which could ed. The result ..was an astonishment to these financiers and to the govern- ment. Now the department of finance is looking with more confidence to the Canadian public. There has never .been an official statement on the for very good it is well knmvn hrofildal circles that the only munitions orders which are now be- ing placed on this continent are those let m Canada -through the.
