The crossing at Diamond City has been recommended by a committee of the Board oi Trade and pity Council but that location Is not accepted'by many of the settlers as the most desirable. Thos. knows the country well, and he prepared a plan of the country, showing the several districts north pf the river. Accompanying it was j following letter: j "I note through your news col- umns that signatures to the proposed bridge endorsed by the Board of Trade is not .meeting witfi the prompt res- ponse that such a bonanza to the farmers should be expected to. I be- lieve had the members of the Board gone thoroughly into the question oi a bridge location, they should know the cause of the dilitariness on the part of those most interested, i.e., the farmers north of the river. I enclose herewith a plan, of the river, coulees, trails and lay of the country north of the city, a glance at which should, I think, be con- vincing. Look at the route taken by those living in Township 11, Ranges 19 and 20, not forgetting those living east of the Little Bow river who no doubt- would prefer to come to Leth- bridge rather than to Taber to transact their business. The distance to Nolan's when the river is fordable is 17 miles, when not, fordable 29 miles (by "measurement.) Note the detour that trail'takes away from the river in order to be able to cross 12 mile Coulee and Picture- Butte Coulee, but above all please note what actual distance would be saved by anyone living 3 miles from Diamond Mine by a bridge being, placed at this point, again what ex- pense would be incurred'to make as easy a gradient both ways from the j river at Diamond City as' the pres- 'ent road (bad and all as it is.) Now Mr. Editor, doubtless some of these points being considered by the farmers north before signing a petition for a much needed bridge. doubt in time a bridge at Dia- mond City will be a requirement and will come, but in the "mean time if a bridge can be got, let it be placed where it will be of the greatest bene- fit to the .greatest number."
