The inference then was tliat thoy would parallel the Great Northern rrom Minneapolis throbgli the Dakotas to Great Falls, with''tlie intention of eventually" lihkr ine UP with the company's main lines in Alberta at .Lethbridge. This announcement has aroused tlio ire of the Jim Hill interests and if the C, P.
