Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 7, 1921, Lethbridge, Alberta FINAL lETHBHIDGE. ALBERTA. MONDAY, MARCH 7, 1921 PAGES NTMBER72 aV German Proposals Unacceptable, Troops Are Moving Always Some Hardship; About These Reducing ExercUos This Province Leads Way in At- tendance With 5.304 Recorded FINE ATTENDANCES j AT LAST STOPS i WEED TRAIN CONCLUSIONS C., F. Steele> The clou of the itinerary of the Weed Special marks the inaugur- ation of the most determined cam- paign against noxious weeds and for better and cleaner farming in the agricultural life of Western Canada, It is a co-operative move- msnt and rightly so. Tho farm- ing Interests of the thtee provin- ce; are so interwoven that the problems of ont- are common to all. In Manitoba the wild oat and the sow thistle are the most viru- lent weed. In Saikatchswan.it Is the sow thistle. In Alberta the Russian thistle is perhaps the worst weed. But the sow thistle, has made Its appearance in the south country, and this weed be- ing as much harder to destroy as Russian thistle is over Canadian thistle, seme idea of the serious- ness of it may be learned. Co-operation, and co-operation _' afoqe, will spell the defeat of the noxious, weed. If every farmer dees his duty and unites with his neighbor the weeds can be de- stroyed. The future security of the agricultural Interests of the west demands this ef the farmers of the west. In'sslf interest it behooves them to fight the weeds. The Weed Train also brought the three province! together in a common purpose. The effect has been pleasing, A clearer under- standing of fnterprovlnclal rela- tionships has been gained. Then the co-operation of the" C. P. R. in this most worthy move- ment is a pleasing feature.- The railroads are behind this thing be- cause they know it is good busi- ness.

OTTAWA, Ont., March though thoae who have been urg- ing an Investigation of the western grain trade art dally expecting an order-in-council to be issued con- taining the names of the commis- sion which was asked for. It is not likely.to appear Just yet. In fact, its appearance may be Indefinitely delayed. Strong opposition to the idea has developed In the govern, merit ranks, some of the most in- fluential western supporters of administration opposing the sug- gestion strongly. Two names are mentioned particularly as being strongly opposed to the govern- ment Interfering in the question, and they are those of men who would probably be considered as the leaders of the western dele- gation in tht house. It la also said that there Is opposition to the proposal from within the cabinet Itself. Looks Like Grudge t Those that oppose it say that there has not been any complaint from tha farmers' themselves, strong enough to warrant any In- vestigation nor have there bean such evidences of wrong-doing as have been alleged fay some of the members In the house. So far as at least one of the advocates of the proposition Is concarned, it ia felt that his objection la principally to gratify a private grudge against his former associates in one of the concerns against which it is understood the agitation is main- ly directed. There not absent the feeling that the present is not the time to do anything which may increase in the country and lead to a general dis- turbance of conditions, and that if the farmers feel they have been Improperly treated by the concerns with which they are doing business, the initiative both in the way of complaint and pros- ecution should come from them.

C.-ALBERTA POWER COMPANY AWARD JJIG CONTRACT FOR POLES Little 7-Year-Old Charlin Rossi Run Over By Truck, and i Dies Two Hours Lnter (From Our Owu Correspondent) j BLAIRMORE, March sad ac- cident occurred in Blairmore on Sat- lurday afternoon last, which resulted I In the death of little CMarlie Ross seven-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Antony Rossi ot this town. Death resulted from Injuries received when run over by a motor truck. It appears that the little Rossi hoy was In the habit of jumping on to tho hnavy mot- or lorry which is owned by Emil Plc- arello of Blairmore and operated by Tony Rota, and when questioned Rota acknowledged putting the child off fhe truck on two occasions ou Satur- day, but in persistency t'utj boy again climbed ,011 the lorry. On this last occasion and when turning a sharp corne'r the boy must have fallen off in such a way as to bo caught under one of the rear wheels which passed over his stomach and causing such Internal Injuries that the child passed away after about two hours ot suf- fering. The accident took place be- tween three auti Jciir in tho afternoon. Coroner t'lnkney nj Blairmore, who jwas Immediately summoned after qnes- 1 tionlng those concerned in the auXIr decided that an inquest was not neces- sary as the evidence already siibmlt- conrpany's geologist to have a more favorable appearance than where the present well is located, and great things are to be expected of it, later. This second structure will be tried out by the Western States company during tho coming season. The oil was found In the lower Em- bar sand. At the first impact of the drill in the upper layers of the sand, showings of oil and gas were found, encouraging further drilling. After the hard shale was penetrated, oil be- gan to rise rapidly at the rate of fifty feet an hour, until it poured over the top of the casing in a black stream. It is a real black .oil, so it is said, which contains a large percentage oi gasoline, far more in fact, than is usually found in that "grade of black oil. The gas pressure has developed greatly and as the drill goes deeper, the prospect is good for a much heav- ier How of oil from this well. Coin- ing.from the Embar. sand, as it does, it will sell at tho same price aa crude oil from tho Salt Creek, which is pro- duced in Hamilton Dome, a Wyoming field.
