The following letter has been re- ceived by the secretary of the board of trade in reply to his letter of in- quiry of a few days ago regarding the country the new south branch will traverse: Chas. H. Webster, Esq., Secretary Board of Trade, Calgary. Dear to your letter of Nov. 6 asking our opinion of the country through which the proposed branch of the C. P. R. will run be- tween Calgary and Lethbridge. would say that with me exception 01 a iuw small portions, the country to be traversed is one of the best farming sections of Alberta. It a well- known fact that the territory east oi the Macleod branch contains more good land than that through which that line actually runs; and while of necessity the Macleod branch has been serving that country in a kind of way for sometime, with the com- pletion of the proposed branch an immense development will take place "which is at ihe present time being held back for Jack of railway facili ties. In fact as far as our line o business is concerned, may say that we consider that the qountry be- tween Calgary and Lethhridge, and east of the Macleod branch, is prob- ably the most fertile and best paying district we have in Alberta., and _ we shall indeed be glad, to see the line completed at the earliest possible date.
