It has been before that the Spokane Chamber of Commerce was coming to Lethbridge to attend the Congress in October, but It remained to Hon. Daniel Morgan, vice-presi- dent of the Congress In the Inland Empire, and member of the Spokane Chamber of Commerce, to bring the ironl.lD person. The Spokane'organ- ization ii greatly interested in Hie Congress, which is to 'be held In'Ca- nada this fall for the first time, and they intend tn -repay with interest the visit of the Board of Trade to the Congress at Spokane in 1910. Another reason why the Spokan soft variety, "and it is becoming more and more necessary to import hard wheat from Canada, as the hard wheat growing industry in the United States is growing less and less every year. Immense quantities of Alberta oats- could be used In the Pacific States, where they are, now selling at per hundredweight. Although Mr. Morgan is a banker, ue is also a farmer, says he is here ag a, farmer. One thing he ad- vocates for Alberta is mixed -farming. Hundreds of thousands of dollars' MEET AT CALGARY TO CONSIDER PANAMA ROUTE TVcstcra to Alive c of Business That the opening of the Panama canal will play a part of supreme inv lortance in the development of West- ern Canada, not only -as regards the cities of the coast, but also in the f tit- ire of. the whole priarie section, is opinion of HonJTJaniel -Morgan, vho is in the city today at the invita- worth of pork and mutton ure ship- lion of the Board of Control of the led 3'early inJo the Inland Enipire. That is one of the" things they are .rying to overcome. Alherta finds it- s-elf in. the same boat'in this regard, nil the hoards 'of. trade should take some means to change such a state f affairs. Mixed fanning tends to eliminate waste, and tile elimination if waste means thousands of dollars o the country every year. Mr. Morgan. laid iempliasis on one hihg in uaTilcnlar; which will result Dry-Farming Congress. Hon. Mr. Morgan is one of the .vice-presidents in the Inland .Empire, and will, ad- dress the workers at the informal din- ner'to be held this evening in the St. Augustin's hall. To the Herald this morning.Mr. Mor gan said that the opening Of the Pan- ama canal would build up on the Pac- ific- coast a" city "which will rival New York. It will be the clearing house of the great American West; It will T publicity the Chamber of Commerce is much infer-1 get the farmers of Western Canada ested In things Canadian, may iha they have a former Canadian memtiei of Parliament as their president. .Mr R. Iniinger Is the head of the trade organization in Uie coast I one of the good citizens Canada lias Ipet.' Yesterday before Air. Morpan left Spokane, Mr. insinger opened the magnificent neiv Chamber of t'nm- merce building, wliicii was built there during the winter. Speaking of the benefit which Western Canada and tc Lethbrldge from the holding of the Dry-Farming Congress session here this fall, .Mr. Morgan said the eyes of the whole world, -from an agricultural standpoint, are turned on tho home of the congress, ami that this part of the world is.gelting more publicity of a desirable nature than it his ever got. in any time previous. Mr. Morgan owns a large tract of land in Alberta, and Is therefore not averse to boosting a little in Cana- da's favor. Speaking of Uie tnitlc re- lations which might esisl between Al- berta and Ihe Inland Empire, of which Spokane is the metropolis, he said that Alberta has an almost unlimited market there for its hard wheat, its oau. li.iy. lumber and coal. Although fnintid KmpSre.las; year produced sometvheTR in Ihe neighborhood of 7fiT- bushels of wheat, It is of the ram' holding the Congress here this th-e clearing, house thejmmigra- ear. Besides the immense amount tion of the vorwt and Western Can- city and district will .Uia. Ou account of its large tracts of public lands still open to settlement will draw a very large proportion of the immigrants who land.aMhls city which is to be. Mr. Morgan just mentioned this mat ter in a general way, 'while comment- have arranged to hold-this con- vention ut a a strong repre- sentation of British manufacturers will he in Calgary on a visit, and it Is our intention to invite them to- this convention. "This invitation is being extended to every Board of Trade and Indus- trial Bureau as far East, and includ- ing Moose Jaw, and all west of that point to the Pacific Coast, believing that all within that sphere will be in- terested and affected by-this extensive development.'

The Board of Trade will take the matter up at the next meeting of.its executive, and delegates will be ap- lolnted to attend the convention, vhich jjromis-es to be one of the most mportant affairs of the. kind ever icld in this part of the world; An iclion taken at will b carried to the Federal governmen every precaution taken to set hat Western Canada receives it Ights in the matter. Lethbridge is particularly Interest ed, owing to uie possibility of the fill ure movement of the grain praririe secticns being through to'th anil clearing house of millions p bushels of bur grain. To stir tip interest in the Panama canal question, the Board bf Trade will endeavor to have Geo. son, C.E., is now. visiting in the district, -deliver a lecture on the Pan am a and its possibilities. "Mr.' Ander son spent the winter in the-Panama canal zone, and is thoroughly yiarsant with all the International surrounding the ope'nlng of the canal. He has with him n larg number of fine pictures of the canal and its operations, and the public will have the whole question brought, very home by hearing Mr, Anderson.

That would require a. cold storage plant, and Lethbridge would be the Ideal location of such; an enterprise. Then proba .bly, instead of importing thousands of dollars worth of these commodities every year, Letribri-dge and district could export them, and become just sc much more'pro'sperous than now- Several diiring .the past fei weeks, the Herald has advocated the taking of steps which would result Ii the establishment of a cold storage plant here. it begins to look as though these hopes might he realized There is in the city today a gentleman who is closely identified with the cold storage industry in Western Canada and if his efforts, together with the support of the Board of Trade, are car rlert out, Letlib'rldge will have :i re- frigerator plant this year.
