TRACY OUTLINES SAFE AND SANE INDUSTRIAL POLICY FOR ADVANCEMENT OF CITY There is a diversity of gifts in our human nature that is in- teresting in this connection. I-br example, a piece of metal in hand, oim may produce a match, another a stove, nttollicr a gun, auollier a rail, another a ship, another a sword, another a plowshare, another a spear, iinollier a pruning-liuuk., With a bit of silica sand 'one miiy produce a an- other a bottle, anollier a vase, another a marble, another a side-, anollier a.stone. My Iboiighl then is fo'arouse iiave 'aTi of Ibe opporlnnilics for the exercise of Iheir gifts in Lethbridge. 11 The iirsl is that those wiio have already tnulertaken the 'manufnrJnrc of anything in Lelbbridge ex- pand and cnlafgcithcir enterprises as-far as they can safely and profitably_do so.- To these we offer hearty sujiporl. The next natural is that those who live in this locality ami incline fo manufacture anything, or who have capi- tal lo invest, -will first undertake their cntcrpiise in Lclhuridgc.

The. next natural expectation is that Ihose of oilier localities who may consider the establishment of manufacturing elsewhere be attracted by a capable and systematic presentation of the advantages and inducements for mamifaclnrc lo lie found in Lethbridge. These will he searched for, and earnestly and hon- estly dealt -wilh. Now Ihcse three expectations may all he lively at the same lime. I simply put them iif the natural order of results.
