Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 19, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta Volume V. SIXTEEN 1'AGKS Ledibrulgc, Alberta. Tnewlay, November IV, CENTS Number 280 PROJECT ILL UP COAL British Caoital Interesfp. A and Scheme Looks Like a Profitable One LITTLE'SET BACK Bridge Will Have to be Bui! Over River at Diamond City by Company If plans, Which are at present o foot mature, Lethbridge will, withi the next two or three years, be th main terminal of a radial railway sys tern, built by British capital, and Operated as to connect the city pro per with the various "mining camp 'within a radius of'twelve miles, mak Ing them to all intents and purpose a part of Lethbridge. The scheme I cue of the largest ever undertake! in this part of the province, ant tho company, will represent mil lions of capital, the actuiil monetar; outlay will be close to the million mark.' That Is the outline of the LetVi bridge Radial Railway Co. scheme which has grown, it is believed, out o Hho visit of the British uianufactur ers' party to the city last summer Tho plan is in embryo as yet, -but i' is understood that President Cunning liam, of the Board of Trade ,is push .ing the undertaking from this em! "and while nothing'definite is given -out, there is evei-y likelihood of the plana maturing within a short time so that a charter for tho company Jiiay be applied for, Ttie_ reticence pC the local reprc- sen tat Iras of th'e''proposed company, makes to give ol their plans lu detail. The coming to a decision over the location oC the proposed bridge over the Belly River, whether It.: was to be at Dia- mond City or NoJan'B Crossing, has .also. s.e.t ;back. the efforts of the com- to get their plans on a working basis. However, since the provincial government has finally made its de- cision to locate the bridge at the lat- ter point, the company will now find it necessary to provide for the con- struction of a bridge, and it is under- stood that the British interests in the scheme have been' apprised of this fact. Charter Existing For several years there have been minors of building a radial railway Lethbridge as the centre, but owing to the noa-devefopment of the coal lands to the north and west of the city, nothing has ever been done. In fact, several years ago a company of local men, among them C. F. P.I Cony.beare, the late William Hender- son, a'nd two or three others, con- ceived the possibilities of such an un- dertaking, applied for, and were grant ed 11 charter for the construction and -operation of the road, although no fixed lines for the route were set forth in the charter. If this charter has lapsed tlwough non-fulfillment, It will he necessary for the new com- pany to apply for a new charter; if not, they will make overtures to the old company with the object of ab- sorbing the old charter. j (Continued on page (.0) The Steamer Mayflower Which Sank in the Madawaska River, Drowning Nine Persons "erdinand of Bulgaria .Send: Favorable Reply to Note From the Porte NEGOTIATE PEACE Austria Raising a.-Fuss Over Actions of the Montene- grin :Army Nov.
