SHOULD BOOST ,THB LOCAL .CONCERNS Mr. Dunham thinks that the people oi this city should not overlook .ihe opportunity to develop their home field. He is a man with .wide aypcri- ence in the United States and Mex- ico, and'he has nothing to. advice is given freely, in. the .hope (hit the public will suppoct .loeal concerns endeavoring to get a foot- inj. it is quite possible that Mr. Dunham will give an address in the near lut.urc heforo the Ad Club or the Hoard o! Trade, when all will he given an opportunity of listening to his wonderful fund of information, only a small of which could he possibly given in. the space of a shell synopsis. He has specialized on every phase of oil, arid knows the game thoroughly. in endeavoring to .impreis upon the public the greatness of the oil indus- try, Mr. Dunham used some statis- tics. INDUSTRIES DEPEND OIL He claims that wheh''a inan says he cares nothing about oil! hc.'hasn't the slightest idea of what he is talk- ing about. There is not a man living who does not depend on :oil, directly or Indirectly. It is oil that lubricates the machinery which turns wheat In- to flour, and which .makes every wheel In the world run smoothly.: Coming closer home, Mr. Dunham pointed out that shoe polish' has Oil for Its nearly everyone gets a shine once In'a while. 'Para- fine, which practically created the Unccda Biscuit industry, and, which is so indispenslble in. the kitchen; is an oil product. Parafinc has wiped out, the tallow .candle apd .liuSincsB' hy iU wonderful {reserving qualities. jui. Dunham mentioned more little things that are direct products of oil than the average person thinks in existence, and went "on to emphasize of the gasoline trade, brought about largely hy the automo bile; He said: "When gasoline was only useful lor cleaning my lady's white gloVes and lor similar purposes it could hardly be given away. But now -there are in the United" States alone something like. gaso line engines, stationery, automobile, marine and aerial, with a past an- nual increase of not far from 000. In support ol this statement take the figures of 'Mitchell May, sec- retary of state of New York The results obtained through direct communication with the licensing au thorities in the several stales where registration laws prevail 'show that the total registration last year.was an increase of over 1011, when a similar list was pre- pared, showing a registration of automobiles alone. The motorists of Anierica yearly pay for their i gasoline, oil and grease, a sum great- er than the receipts of all the Col- leges the amounts required to transport all the United States .mails more than all the gold, silver and minc-r coin put out in the aver- age-year by all the units in the coun- try and nearly three times the total i value of the silver mined in the U. S. in a twelve month." j Mr. Dunham is coming back to Lcthbridge in a few days. He is very much interested In the developments and the mere fact that a man of "his' experience would" visit the dis- speaks well for the future.
