Many Autos In South In his report President Green stated that 50 ner cent, of the automobiles in the province are in the southern district, south of Calgary, and Lethbridge should have the largest club in the province. He said also that, as the money from auto licenses, are to be spent on the roads in the districts producing the revenue, the southern part of the province should hereafter receire greater attention in road building, in this regard it was decided to write Hon. A. J. McLean pointing out to him the great difficulty hi securing teams and men for road work, nnd urging on him that the latest improvements in tractor-drawn graders should be secured so that the roads may be put into condition to meet the demands of the fast increasing traffic. A letter will also be sent to the legislative committee of the Provincial Motor League urging that a close watch be kept on road legislation this session, and expressing approval of the new bill just introduced by Hon. Mr. McLean, minister of public works. L Demand is Big--�Farm Lands Selling1-New Communities Heally legitimate real estate trade Is more brisk in Lethbridge and in farm lands in the district today than it has ever been. City property is moving every day. Newcomers are flook-lng to the city and being unable to rent bouses, they are buying, and the unfortunate tenants are finding themselves scrambling for another house. There is a bigger demand for Improved property than at any time since the boom of 3912. There will be a number of private houses built this year by owners, but very few for rental purposes, and by fall the housing situation will be really critical. A measure of relief may be afforded by the erection of a number of apartment houses. The Herald understands a couple of syndicate's have practically decided to build modern apartment houses. It is also stated on good authority that another syndicate Is considering the erection of a large hotel, while another company or capitalists have opened negotiations for the purchase of a large downtown business block which they are considering as a hotel proposition. Farm Land* 8ell Fast Farm lands are moving more briskly than city property, however, and it is here that the big influx of new settlers will find an outlet for their capital. The brokers in the city state that they are finding a hard time to keep their listings up to date, trade has been so brisk. Every part of the south is receiving new settlers, but the new district between Stirling and Foremost is now receiving more attention than ever, the former holders of this stretch of land baring decided to put it on the market. It is stated tha.t there have been 60 newcomers on the town-site of Skiff this week, and that quite a lot of building is in sight there for the summer, as a large community is springing up south of that point. Thousands of acres of land south and southwest of Skiff have been bought by settlers this spring at prices ranging from $15 to |25 per acre. South or GraBsy Lake also there is a Dig movement in land, several large deals now pending. Mayor Hardle returned yesterday afternoon from Edmonton where he had boon in attendance at the legislature on matters relative to the financial condition of the various cities, the col; lection of outstanding taxes, otc. Tho Herald was unable to secure an interview with HIr Worship this morning as he was busy with various callers, but he had time to say: "They sat 011 us at every turn up there." The mayor referred particularly to the request of the cities of the province that the government collect a portion of the Patriotic Fund by means of an income tax. While in Edmonton the mayor attended � meeting of the Military Hospitals Commission of which he was a member and brought hack voluminous reports of the work of tho commission during the past year. Several recommendations are being made to Ottawa in connection with demobilization, the care of returned soldiers, the land settlement scheme, re-education, etc. FELGER MUST PAY 1750 AND COSTS For Harboring Wife of Van Dsrn, a Farmer Near Lethbridge Calgary, March 14.-Mr. Justice Walsh has found Charles Felger, a farmer in the Lethbridge district liable in damages to Edward Van Dorn ot Lethbridge, in the sum of $750 and costs for wrongfully and against the will of the plaintiff, receiving and harboring and detaining Anna Van Dorn, the plaintiff's wife. The plaintiff and his wife and five children went to live at the defendant's farm in April, 1917, the husband as a laborer, and the wife to do the house work, under a contract which was to continue until January 1, 1018, for which plaintiff was to receive the [ proceeds of the crop to be raised on j 22 acres at the expense of the defen-I dant.
