The report was irr circula- tion last night that several companies, occupying most strategical positions both as lo finances and as to lease- might be concerned in a large amalgamation. The affect- ed to bs the Herron- Elder.'-tlie C.A.P., the Alberta Petro- leum, the Okotoks company, and large company in the process of or- ganization. .As the story goes, the merger' would control over acres of choice oil holdings, much of which would be inside of the "blue" of the Dowling survey of the Domin- ion geological department. Aside from the local petroleoerats interests and Califor- Ris capitalists are said to be concern- ed in the big merger. The scheme is said to contemplate .n extensive development campaign, with eight or ten strings of tools in operation in various sections of, the district. The story could not be confirmed last night. It is understood, however, that .nil tiie directorates of the com- panies held star chamber ses- sions yesterday, hut none of the vari- ous directors seen would talk. President Robert L.. Shaw, of'the Herrbn-Elder, was seen Just before his departure for Edmonton last night. "Is there any -truth in this story o' he was asked. .W. D. replied the near-cabinet minister, as he disap- peared Into the sleeping car. Mr. Outman was interviewed. "Perhaps C. A. Owens could tell you said Mr. Outman. Owens said It was possible that something of the kind was contemplat- ed, he suggested that W .H. McLaws might .lie willing to talk about'tho merger. But the legal wazard of tho local petroleum world was not to ho found, and tho merger mystery remains un- solved. WEATHER .14. Lethbridge, cloudy.

Facts About the Rain Intermittent, but mighty good, and thoroughly That is the way Supt. Fairfielri sized up the re- cent shower visitations today. A goodly amount fell today, the total up to 2 o'clock being .35. On Monday the fall was .28, instead of ,08. The fall has been general, in showers, and most of the crops that managed to weather the dry spell, 'will have enough moisture' now lo guarantee well-filled heads and solid" kernels. The rain has done practically .no of being implicated in the alleged nois-' damage to the hay in the district east of the city. Mr. Fafrfield states that the majority of the alfalfa is already in the stack, and very little of the timothy is down. The alfalfa crop is one.of the best in years, and the farm- ers are looking for good prices this fall.
