To the Editor, Lethbridge Herald. Dear Sir,-1 see that Prosident Marnoch of the board of trade had a visit from A. B. McCallum, chairman of the Dominion Research Council of the west, looking into tho possibility of developing tho various industries of the country after the war. ThiB has led me to_wrlte you, that there is now conclusive evidence of a great coal field between the Little Bow and Big Bow with its south area resting on the Old Man (late Belly) river. D. B. Dowling of the Geological survey reports that below the, mouth of tho Little Bow there is a coal seam 3ft. 3 in. thick. The other day T. J. Walburger, riding north of the bridge on the Little Bow got interested In a gopher digging out coal for his winter Bupply, which made the said gentleman start digging too, which proved to bo a 2% foot seam! which will no doubt thicken out to a splendid working seam of coal. At Fuller's Ranch the coal is overlaid there with a sandstone. At Rot-law 70 feot down they strike tho rock. There is no doubt now but the whole of the Cameron field along with tho Retlaw and Sundial areas are^an immense field of coal overlaid by a sandstone roof, which will bo producing coal when the Hoary {Head of the mines lie sleeping in the grave. What we need now is a mining company to start up and get this, coal area developed and along with C. S. Noblo's wheat Interests, get the railway through between Retlaw and Kipp and tap this great natural resource. Yours, ROBT. HARVIE.
