The pur- pose of Jt is--to enable people to go {the .tb.ea.tre from cabs without getting wet when it is raining... 'VHS' to going to do about it, Mr. Bryan had had considerable difficulty in per- suading the directors of his company to -build in Lethbridge this yen- as they feared there might be some diffi- culty' in getting the buildings rented owing to the quiet times following the crop failure of last year. He had per- suaded them, however, to go ahead with the of the Theatre block and also the block adjoining the Do- minion block, the foundation for which Is already built He ntiew that if the directors believed that the city council -did not want them to build such build- ings as they wished, which are all a the city, they would prefer to leave the holes in the ground in- definitely. Mr. Bryan went on lo say that he had submitted the plans of the theatre to the building inspector and be had expressed the opinion that the portico would not .be contrary to the bylaw and he had gone ahead on that under- standing. He thought that the council could easily have the bylaw when they decided that as it stood, 'it would not permit of the portico being built. Company's Operations Speaking in general of the opera- tions of his company, Mr. Bryan said that it was their policy to invest mon- ey in good permanent buildings for rent and said that he believed that his company had invested more money in this way in the city than any other. Besides the two.buildings already men- tioned they intend to build a block on the. lots they recently bought on the northwest corner of Eighth street and Fourth avenue (Bnrdelt and They had also interested a good deal of other canital the city and on their recommendation Dr. Blow eerieusly considering the erection of s block on the northeast corner of the streets mentioned, east oi their own proposed building.
