Two men entered a little grocery store, kept, by a Pole, and after demanding tobacco, one of them pulled a revolver and shot the pro-! priotor in the groin and wounded his wife in the shoulder. Then they rifled the till and got away. The chances "l catching them seem slight. (Reprinted from the Financial Times, June ISi'h.) The second ordinary general meet- ing of the Southern' Alberta Land! Oinpany.

McGregor and Grace have decided on a very much bolder, and in my opinin, a very much safer scheme, than any- thing we have contemplated in the past. When I say this scheme is very much bolder, I do not mean that it is more risky, as from its simplicity it is very much less risky than any scheme which we had before; but I say "bolder" because not only do we lovk to irrigate the vast tract of ter- ritory which comprises our lands, but we also look to supplying water to a territory even twice as large as ours, already settled and occupied, which with water available will become a I large and thriving community. The scheme, therefore, is a great deal larg er than any tiling we have previously considered. Taking your own tract alone, you will find that instead o: hoping to irrigate to we now contemplate irrigating ONLY 65 LEFT OUR LOTS ON WESTMINSTER ROAD ARE SELLING FAST. IN- QUIRE AT ONCE.

The live stock etc., amounts to and, as yoxi j were informed last- year, our policy is to liquidate this item as opportun- ity occurs, it being the intention oi the company to devote itself chiefly to the irrigation scheme and land business. In addition to this we have sundry debtors loans and cash, which total up to so that as regards liquid assets we are in a very sound position. This, I think, deals fully with, the balance sheet. As already advised yon, we have been able to carry out a very satisfactory exchange of land, which.naturally altered our plans and necessitated fresh surveys and the consideration of an entirely new scheme, the net result of which j is 'thai a much greater proportion of your land'will, we believe, how be rendered irrigable. of Scheme I trust that you have all read Mr. Anderson's excellent report, .which deals very the scheme of ir- rigation proposed by Sir. McGregor and Mr. Grace and which he so fully endorses. I would urge that any who have not done so to study this report- most carefully. You will see-that 'Mr. I Anderson urges the adoption of the ommended by our consulting engineer which has been tully endorsed by Mr. Anderson. I need hardly, tell you that the proposals to which your ap- proval is asked is the result of long deliberation and- after consideration of several other alternatives. In the original scheme we raised 000 for.working capital, which we con- considered, with the assets of the Grand.Forks Cattle Company, would be nearly sufficient to irrigate to acres. The original estimat- ed cost was of this was provided in cash and was the estimated value of 'the assets of the Grand 'Forks; .When we met last year you will remember that we had before us a pumping scheme. This we contemplate irrigating 100 per .cent, more of your land today than we had estimated in the past. In ad- dition to this, as our canals traverse through nearly ninety miles of coun- try, we shall be able to offer water to many holders of hundreds of thou- sands of acres of land from which we expect to derive a very large revenue. I have only prefaced the details of tlie financial scheme by these remarks because I think it is of importance in considering the financial side to real- ize how we propose to invest your money, and even though we are rais- ing today a greater sum than we an- ticipatAd, we will at the same time ir- rigate a far greater area than we had j contemplated, and the net results will I believe, yield ultimate profits very much larger than we had in any way- hoped for. We shall ask you today to approve the scheme to raise 000 which, in addition to the we have in hand, we propose to in- vest in the irrigation scheme which has been so 'strongly recommended by Mr. G. G. Anderson. In case some of the shareholders are inclined to cri- ticize .the. large sum which we have to raise, I want to make it quite clear, not only that the money would be vested in irrigating a far greater pro portion of your lands, but that we ex pect to derive a considerable'income from.water rights, and I believe tha the investment of the money that propose to make for your account, wil be justified, merely on the prospective return from water rights alone, apart altogether from the irigation of our own lands.
