Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 29, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta TiicBday.Jtily THE LETHBRIDGE MONUMENTAL. AND OUT STONE1 WORKS BELGIAN HORSES FOR FAIR Entry of Twenty Thoroughbreds Made From Bel- Are Now on the Ocean Thirteen horses, all the way from-AlciVicoI has been unable to quite [Antwerp, Bclgiumy will arrive in the make nut what tlie names really are, city in the course of three weeks j but is satisfied thai any man who for exhibition at Southern Alberta's j will bring noises that distance for ex- big 'exhibition. Horses crossing the iMbition purposes must have some con- great 'Atlantic, and then almost across another continent to add to' the numbers exhibited at the bridge fair is u new departure in this part of the world, but it certainly pocs to show that Lcthbridgc is be- coming known outside, the American continent. Manager McNMcoI, of the Lcthbridgc Exhibition Board, .only yesterday re- ceived word 'o[ this notable entry. When he received., the letter bearing ftlie Foreign post mark, he thought he was getting some voluminous litera- ture informing, him of the pleasures of spending'.the winter in Europe, and was about to consign the letter to "the waste paper basket. But when he rejul, the contents he took a brace, ami awoke to the fact that this was about ,the biggest thing which has ever happened to the Lethbridge fair. The letter was written from Ant-, the. had :wcrp, Belgium, and stated that writer's brother, A. I-Iowvzen, sailed From there on July .twenty stallions and mares, of which .'thirteen were to be exhibited, and 'that the brother would pay the en- trance fees on .his arrival. .Four stal- lipuK -and- nine--.marcs .will, fid.; All are pure and- the .exjiibiidr furnished, a .list .o[ the to ,the foreign tinge.on the names of tlie animals, Manager Jldgncc in hisrabiliiy as a breeder. It is thought that the'shipper is a noted horse breeder in Uelgimn. Dur- ing the years hundreds o! Belgian horses have been shipped to Alberta to raise the standard of the stock in this province breeding is becoming -recognized one of the.most profitable industries which can he engaged in. 'And the shipper, desiring to establish his re- i putation as a breeder of Belgian horses, is taking the opportunity oE exhibiting at Lethbridge to accom- plish his end. Last year the special horse judges from. Chicago were unreserved in their praise of the quality of horses exhibited at the Lethbridge fair, and the fiiw prizes awarded has acted as a stimulant in the horsemen of tho province so that the'number of en- tries this year will be greatly in- creased. Now the 'announcement of competition with pure bred horses com- ment until the full judgment comes to hand. general.impression is that the Privy Council haying concurred in the view held by Hon. C. J. Doherty, Min- ister oE Justice, .and his predecessor in office, Sir 13, Aylcaworth, that the Dominion Parliament has no authority to paes a general marriage law, Httle more will be heard of the matter, more particuulrly; as tlia declared that thy civil oC the country in regard to mar- riage over-rldo, any ecclesiastical canon. There Is-the course, that those who are still anxiounifor.a Dominion' marriage law, will inHInfn a movement to have the B. -Act amended. Such an agitation would introduce 'the vexed .question still more inio; the Parliamentary arena. Tjic Impression appears ,to be some- what general, that no such action Is likely to be taken by Mr. A. B, Lan- caster, or other parties concerned, at least for the present, and but little will be heard of the matter at the ap- proaching session of Parliament. Toronlo parties are involved in a half-million real estate deal at (ialt. know how. However, I believe the worst is over." On-enquiry from several of the lo- cal .plumbing concerns yesterday it was learned that unless a supply oi soil pipe arrived this week several large jobs would be delayed until ar- rival of shipnrents from the 'east. It appears, that some work will be delayed but the delay in gen- eral will not be serious tie up building all over the city. FIND HARD COAL ON ARCOLA FARM Claim Discovery During Well Digging Means Supply Equal in Quality to Beit Arcola, Sask.f July farm owned by William Lees, affiliated fit the foot of Moose Mountains, near Arcola, is the location of- what is likely to prove an important ery.

On -boring further another vein of coal was discovered at a depth of about ono hundred and Uv'o feet. To- day the second vein has been bored to the extent of about four foci. Plenty of water was struck at this depth which Hows steadily day and night.
