Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - March 8, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, MARCtj 8, 1918 THE LETHBKinr.K DAILY HERALD i,g______jjmmmnj PACK SEVEN ONE-FOUR PEOPLE I Send Protest to Ottawa and Demand That Ranch Be Opened For Settlement (From Our own correspondent) Onefour. Feb. 22.-Mrs. F. K. O. Chlnholm and Mr. and Mre. .lames Poster from the Blaoklall Ranch dirt post officii business Saturday, but would not say (but it was a flue day for sleifjlilng. The customary mid-February thaw which lias favored us for Jbe past alx .winters, slipped a cog this year, and all we got was it distant look at a chlnooky shadow us it blew off south Into" Montana, The following .chill reminded noma that Saskatchewan used to bo a cold place to live it;.  "There are too many homesteaders hero some of them will have to get. nut," said somebody romewhere in Canada, but, in spite of the adverse circumstances under which we labor and the malign influences which would nuppresu us, our numbers are increasing. Word hat; been received that Thure Carlson lias filed for the N.E. quarter of 26, and will be iu to build a house as soon as.weathcr permits. Mr. OarlBon is a'married man with family and will be a valued addition to our colony. Preterit Grievances* to Government The local farmers' union is sending the following letter to the heads of the government at Ottawa In an attempt to open up more land for BettlenwMt in this locality: - Onefour Farmers' Union. Ohetour, Alta. Jan. 31, 1918. Sir,-The regulations in respect to leasing Dominion lands tor grazing purposes contemplate the granting oi leases for tracts that arc unsuitable for agriculture only, but notwithstanding this feature leases have been allowed irrespective of the quality of lhe laud. In southeastern Alberta and southwestern Saskatchewan nearly all the Dominion lands in the territory tributary to the unfinished portion of the Lethbrfdge-Weyburn branch of tno C.P.R. are held in large grazing leases and seniors are few- and scattering. This territory includes much valuable agricultural land ihat would be seised eagerly by land seekers were it thrown open for homcstoudlng. ' About'eignt years ago an area comprising 12 sections iu township 1,R. 4, W. 4 M. and nix sections in Tivp. _. II. .">, was opened and although surrounded by leased land most of it was entered at once by settlers. These settlers soon found themselves cramped by reason of their isolated position, their fewness in numbers, their distances from railroads and market labilities, their inability to obtain roads, aehools, churches, and other social institutions, and a consequent lack of opportunity for social and material advancement. For the purpose of Improving the ------im_WH|UIUI|LJlJJU�--L-BJlg-W situation a petition wait forwarded to �thu minister of the Interior on April 5, l�i;t, requesting that certain sections of iHnd, agricultural' in character, adjoining the present settled area be withdrawn from lease and thrown open for settlement. Action on this petition was delayed and refused but finally In 1914 a special Inspector sent out by the department eiamined the lands and reported u, largo portion suitable for agriculture. No action was taken for the relief of the setllei'H however, as the regular ranch inspector had made au adverse report. On December 1, I OH, an appeal signed by nearly all, the land-holders in this district was sent to the governor-ganerai-ln-councU. Although we have been ussured that this appeal would ha acted on by the council, no notice of such action his been received here -those illegul leases continue lo segregate valuable agricultural laud from the productive area of the Dominion, continue to hamper the efforts of the settlers, and to restrict our prosperity, It is wrong that this condition should exist; that a few settlers should be shut in here, Isolated in Canada, deprived of the benefits of larger association, condemned to live behind the ranchers' barbed wire barricade, our children growing up in Ignorance and our women pining for the brightening Influence of social work, it Is^wrong that agricultural land Hhouid he withheld froni settlement, at this time when the Empire is in need of more gram and other farm produce. It is wrong that large traces of agricultural land should be thus segregated and used only for the raising of a fow head of cattle to the benefit of a few individuals when they might be made the homes of many Industrious and successful farmers. It is wrong that this condition should exist in Canadu, and we ask your co-operation to terminate the illegal monopoly* that is obstructing progress In this district. We Invite full investigation of all statements whjcb have been made by the settlers in regard to this subject on file at Ottawa, and we suggest careful scrutiny of all circumstances surrounding the granting of these illegal grazing leases, and their continued existence underlie grazing regulations. Respectfully, T. L. DUNCAN, A. LINDSAY, SAMUEL, CROSS. . ! Committee j A Later Budge* I Onefour, March 1.-The thaw has J started now. t  j Oomrey is petitioning for twicea-week mail service. jMisses Ullian, Grace and Annie Wetherelt write from Havre that they I will be home soon. ! Morse buyer Bowlen of Calgary and Tom .Mcftham foreman of the Q. ranch were around yesterday looking for stray horses. They were much impressed by the looks of this district and Mr. Bowlen remarked: "This will be a wheat country someday." Word has been received from David Ormfston who has been under a surgical operation in a Medicine Hat hospital, that he would be discharged this week, and we hope to see him back with us again soon. I CONTRIBUTE WELL TO THE RED CROSS Ooallmrst, March 7.-- We wore sorry to hoar that Mr. W. t.\ Clark, late electrician at the local colliery and now located at. Diamond City, lias been Blck Willi typhoid fever. His many friends here will wish him a speedy rocovery. It Is to he hoped lha,t this village will escape the usual spring; outbreak of typhoid which is ho oflou found in the .small as well as large towns. I'ndoubledly our people could do much lo safeguard themselves by taking very simple precautions such as boiling all water lor drinking purposes and for washing of dishes, keeping the houses free 1'rom flies and allowing themselves ro be inoculated hi accordance with approved modern HCience. it is hard to get people to realize how comparatively simple it is to prevent an outbreak of typhoid. The Ladies' Aid met in the Manse on Wednesday of last week and among Other items of business arranged for ii social on the 20th of this month. The last social was a pronounced suc> cess. The local Oddfellows enjoyed a social and dance in tile school last Wednesday evening when there was a large crowd present. The lodge intends to hold another dance on March 15th. D.

AS EGG POWDER Ottawa, March 7. -The chief analyslst of the Inland revenue department lias drawn attention to the fact that a number of articles, which are essentially nothing more than baking powders, are offered for sale under names which involve the use of the word "egg." These articles, eo far as they have been analyzed contain a yellow-dye Intended to suggest the presence of egg yolk and some of thehi also contain small amounts of powdered defalcated egg, cagefo, or gelatin, but in no case Is the lufntity ao great as to Justify their being offered as egg sub stltute* or egg Bpwders. The report staffi that the department interpret* tap term "egg powder" a* being equivalent to powdered eggs and If other material than powdered eggs is used In these articles the label must show it. The use of a yellow dye in anr article claimiug to be powdered egg or 4gg substitute is considered by the department to constitute an adulteration of the article, unless it actually meets requirements for egg powder or egg substitution LIST OF AGENTS IN ALBERTA: BURNED TO DEATH , Chatham, N.B., Mar. 8,-rJames Whit-ly. aged 35, aud his two year old daughter, were suffocated or burned to death in a fire which brqjte out In their, home on Ploasan^ street soon after they had retired last nlgbt, while Mrs. Whitty was abiartt from the home, ARMSTRONG �.
