Architect Room Block Phone 257 The list of enterprises mentioned iti this index might be still further ex- tended, but without any attempt to more fully particularize individual branches, it may be said that in all the elements of progressive and pro- ductive achievement Lethbridge holds a place among the Lading and most active communities the Northwest At the present time the Canadian Pacific Railway is spending consider- ably over a million dollars in erecting a bridge over the Belly River at this city. It will be one mile and forty feiA long and three hundred and seven feet high and will rank as one of the wonders of the world. In addition to this great expenditure this railroad i has appropriated' "to be! spent in making a direct line betwei n j Lethbridge anil Macleod and enlarg-1 ing the terminals at Lcthbridge to conform with the new bridge. The Gait mines, which have been in operation here since 1883, are the greatest domestic coal producng mines in Western Canada. They employ GOO men with a monthly pay roll of nearly Last year they mined tons. The market for Gait extends from Winnipeg on the east to Nelson and Rossland on the we.sU and from beyond Calgary- on the north to the cities of Great Falls, Helena and Butte on the south. The high quality of this coal, and the well established demand for it gives the town a guaranteed stability that strongly commends it to the incoming citizen. Close to the city are the Royal Col- lieries, the Diamond. Mine and the Pioneer mine. The two former arc spending hundreds of thousands of in development work and will soon be producing a thousand tons a day each. It is likely each of these mines will employ at least five hund- red men. The interests and industries that are tributary to the town arc important and varied. Chief of these is the busi- ness of mixed fanning on the irrigat- ed lands adjacent to the town. The products of tin's country are many and varied; wheat, Oats, Bar- Icy and Flax are the principal grain, though Speltz and Rye are successfully grown and are consider- ed good paying crops.

The worst enemy to the labor move meat is the cheap unionist who gaxen furtively down the street before be slides into a non-unionist shop to save a the fellow who scab tobacco and smokes scab cigars, who never wears a union label in hat or has the union stamp upon his shoes, arid wears attire manufactur- ed iti a scab shop. We have seen this fellow and so have you, and we kaow him for what lie as as the worst kind of a knocker where unionism is con- cerned. He spends his money to knock union men and provide employ- ment for scabs. He is ten timea worse than the private detective whom the Manufacturers' Association smuggles into the union, for the lat- ter is never supposed to have any principle and can be guarded against. Now, Mr. Union Man, just size your- self up and find if you are in the cheap, knocking class. When you use cigars or tobacco, do you call for blue label goods? Is the union label on your hat or in your shoes, and are your clothes measured up to a square union cut It isn't necessary to see where you belong. Just think yourself up and you will know that without any assistance on your part. Now, don't get mad."

It is a greater honor than a mere title of no- bility, for it is a king's recognition of services and of character.
