Meeting Was Encouraging How many here arc Christians asked Evangelist Gale at the opening of the service last night. All but two answered in the affirmative. In consequence of. this the subject was changed, and was same earnest, simple and convincing manner as former subjects. In his discourse the evangelist en- to make it plain that un- less the church members met their responsibility by attending and work- ong in the- interests of the meetings, it could not be. expected that, those outside the church would come. The meeting was one of the brightest and most encouraging the cam- paign. The meeting was thrown open after the address had been given and judging from" the remarks of the large number who spoke it is expected thut the church will be filled tonight. The topic was based on the inci- dent of the. death of Lazarus, when Martha said to her sister. "The Master is come and caJleth for thee." They sent for Him because they felt they needed Him. Just so pastors send for an evangelist when they needed help. The tendency of- ten is for the people to put too ni-uch confidence in evangelists and not depend for everything upon The evangelist urged his audience to "roll away the stone" so that God might be able to work. Great things lost time and the crop will gain in the end. This fine weather will also dry up the road up., and down the hills on the bridge road across the river. It is very important to this city that the settlers be given a good road at all seasons to cross the river to mar- ket their products here. For if the road is bad they will assuredly go to'sonic, of the new towns springing up on the railway lines.. Also the matter of a traffic bridge across the Belly River at or near Diamond City mention of which has been male before should be given careful consideration and the bridge erected as soon as possible. The set- tlers north of the river especially those directly north and east of Dia- mond City certainly dislike the idea of hauling their grain west a couple of miles and then pulling it back east again to get into Lethbridge, which i.s necessary with the present traffic bridge. The people at Diamond City figure on getting a railway ..track in there this summer and on having an ele- vator in time to take care of this season's crop. If they get there it will" hold a lot of grain from the ter- and will make considerable saving j rapid growth will soon make up for the achdce. pftlieir in both, time and distance between 1--1 ---1 these points."
