Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 21, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta ftovlnoUl Llbnvy VOLUME I LETHBRIDQE,,ALBpRTA/SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 21, ig08 NO. 2B0. IS JAS. J. HILL GOING to BUILD? lii . ..... Frank Paper Hears Of Great Northern Plans In Canada CANADA'S P. M. Q. DEAN Frnnk, Xov. 21.-The Fnink Pftper is in poHscsHioii of iiifiiriiiii.tii)ii .coiii-from u sourcu upiuirfiiUl.v .so ri-liuliln that is is ilisposcil to Kive Un> iviioit a Ini-Ki'. uu'RHUfc. of erecli'uco, to tho cffcnt. tluit Uwn- iH iv stionR i>rol> thnt the lu.pus of ttio puoplo of Thu I'aHH for , i:qiii|il'1 iiif? line of niil-way .slun'l u k""'' c'hv"T . ViPing realized wilUin tlic next two yours by tho buiiiliiiB of the Ciroiil Xorthnrn across the main rangu of the llockios from llrilish Columbia into llils �li.s-trict. The -^tory iiH it has Iwon repeated to the I''rnnlon raniic into Alberta and running down n.cro.-i.S .souihwp.'-;tcx-i. Alberta lo a con nectlcm with the line at Coutts. Tho piMpoHul ix to Ijullil either from Mor-rissy via. the Xofth Kootenay Vixna or from ijichcl through t.he Cro\v'.s Puss, paralleling the CM'.U. No plan.-j have been definitely settled upon a.f to M'iiiVh route will be adopted ))Ut the ehjinces are stron^rl.v in favorj of thu line comihp this way as is shown liy Iho fact that the Mills have already purcha.sed existing charters, one throuifh the Crow'.s Nest l'as-,i and another for a iiorth and .south Uao fioiiiDwhnt to the cast of The Pass. Hy the use of charters the Orcnt Js'orthcrn could provide itself with the necessary connection mill thereli^- would bo oi)enctl up n. direct line from the coal fields of this di.strirt to the very extensive Montana ninrket, Oiui of the most cncournffing phn.scs of tho matter is tho fact that the Croat Northern MUST have a connection within two years or hnvo something over a hundred miles of road thrown into alnfiost complete (iifiuac ami thin hoinn Iho xnac tho Hklihood is that in the erait thalino comes through Tho Puss it will bo a realil.v in a very short timonnd in all probability construction will be bcRun next year. Another point of sreat significance wh'ich would .seem to bear out tho nii-thenticity of this story may be fovind found in the atntoment of Patrick Welch, the eminent railroad contractor of Spokane. Renders of the Frank I'aper will recall the interview with Mr. Welch publiBhed in lost week's insuo. Mr. Wuich in a member ol tho firm of Foley, Welch i Stewart, contractors who have built a great deal of road for tho Great Northern and who are very cioso to tho heads of the Hill concern. In his interview Mr. Welch, it will bo recalled, said: "1 ex/>cct to see throui,'h trnins from St. Paul, runninpr to Vancouver over tho Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern Hand before the end of 1001)." In the forogoinR statement of tho intentions of tho Great Northern this statement by Mr. Welch is pregnant with mirniDcanco. I'robnbly jio man not directly connected with tho Great Northern enjoys more of tho confidence of tho Hills than IIr. Welch and without a tioulit he spoke liy the card and had in Jnind the program to build tho conneetiiig lino between tho southenstcrn British Columbia brancli and tho line nt Coutts when ho made tho statement. With tho V. V. & K. Hearing coniplotion anil a year to build the proposed cunnecliuns his prediction would bo easy of reali/a tion. TJio Coleman boiinl nl trndo is nl ready in fiosso.ision of the Informa. tion herein contained and already has under way a movement to bring pros-sure to boar for the building of tho lino this way. There ja no doubt that other boards int^orcfited will follow.suit. Tho niniler ulll bo brought up in the Frank board at itfe next mooting. : HON.

"JU.-'I'he Anglican Syninl meets again on 'Pue.sduy next to endcaVor to aceomplish"tho task of electing a successor to the late Bishop Carmicluiel, and as tho date for convening day is near, public interest, ill tlie delilieratious of that body is-growing. Tlu" appointment of Ilishop l.ung, of .Slephen.v to the Archbishopric iif York after he was iinnniinous-ly chD.sun l)isliup of Montreal, has put inntlers in the same position as they were a iiioiitli airo, when the Synod, iinabK'. to choose between Dean Farthing and Dean T'lvaiis, uiinnimously llisliop l.ung. In the interval there has been much discussion in the regarding the deadlock between the laity and the clerg.v at till! last meiiLing and it is rcmeni-bel-ed that while tTie lalt.y went almost solid for Penn Kurlhing on the last liallol, hi' also .shtjwed signs of strength in the clerical votes. It is thought in .Vnglienn circles that jUcan Farthing will, if again put in Moniiuation lui Tiiesiliiy, .show incren,s| eel strength, rn'incipally in the clerical vote and there are those who look for his election t6 this important oirire.

The bison themselves upset all plans anil are now roaming at will on their native lientli.

It is said that Dr. Halo obeyed the instructions of the Foreign OfTico m tho preparation of his interview but later when tho manuscript was submitted to the fJcnnnn oflficials they aro said to havo so "butchered" it that little which was worth while was loft. It was in this final form, according to the World that tho article was finally accepted by the Century. It was practically ready for publication when tho request camo from Horlin that even tho interview in its revised form must bo withdrawn. These rumors may mean that his majesty has decided to abandon his idea of walking for a distance of three miles through the streets of St. Petersburg in the funeral cortege of his undo Grand Duke Alexis, who died recently in Paris. The entire route of the funeral procession is to be lined on either side by n living wall of troops hut in spite of thi.s there is considerable apprehension for the safe l.v of his majesty.

Mann, vice ijrcsident of the Canadian Northern characterizes as absurd the report from Duluth that Mackenzie nnd Mann were going to pay $10,000,000 for the Rainy'River railway. He said that ho had an option, but there was only $2,000,000 of stock and about tlie same amount of boiids invested in tho road. the cfural gate iiiid the scheme was pronounced a complete sncess. The shaggy bruti^ trotted tlirouli the gate into the corral with air indifference that should have aroused the suspicion of the men who were driving Ihem. It was not iiccording to the fibsfiiKite nature oi the beasts to net in this way niiless tlierr was something doing. The herders took no tliou!.'!it of anything but getting the bison tlirnuph that gate. That much tliey did and did well. In tliis iierformiiiiee they had the coniiilete co-o|ni'atinn of the bison, ' which were nior.' caper tc get into the enclosure from which there was an easy avenue to liberty which was not visible to the naked eye of the herdiii:. There was a rumble of the heavy mass getting into motion. Then the duj; trot of the bison quickened into u gollop with the resiionse of n troop of cavalry horses to a bugle call and in clouds of dust the unwieldy beasts charged across the enclosure straight at the high bluff whose vertical face had been supposed to be in.surmountablo by anything on feet. Dust obscured the sight of the beasts but hung over them, like a dense mantle and its movement marked the course of the qiiondoin property of the Doininiois. Straiglit luwanl th
