CROSS Greatly hpressed With the Prosperity and Prospects ofLethbndge LAURIERAOS IN BEST OF FAITH Tkt is What Leader Bordet Said of die Preiier's Attitude lion. C. W. Cross, Attorney Gener- al of Alberta, and Duncan Marshall, manager of the Edmonton Bulletin, spent a few hours in the city last night on their way to visit J. p. ilarcellus, the local member for Pin- cher Creek.

That Sir Wilfrid's assurances com bined with the weight of argument .iln-ady adduced in the House, are NO. 111. JURY DISAGREED San Francisco; Cal., May 22.
