Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 29, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta November .1972 TTTF, DAILY HEK AM PRICES CREAM BAKING POWDER A pure, healthful, Cream of Tartar Baking Powder When buying an article of food you are entitled to know exactly what you are buy- quality and ingredients. If this information is refused don't buy it. Some of the low grade baking powders are advertised, but the ingredients of the powders are scrupulously concealed. A housekeeper would not use a baking powder containing alum if she knew it. It is well when buying to examine the label on the tan. Unless it shows the ingredient cream of tartar, don't buy it. Dr. Price's baking powder is absolutely free from alum. HERR WEBBER SAYS TWO COUN- TRIES ARE CLOSER TO. GETHER THAN EVER Edmonton, Nov. is not the remotest danger oC war. between Germany and Great Britain. We are closer today than ever. I have no patience with the war gossips of a B-ritannico-Germanico embroglio. It 'can not be in this age." Herr Webber, court councillor of Leipzig, Germany, and owner arid publisher of the Illustrated Zeitung, said this here today in announcing i that a hundred prominent bankers, manufacturers and merchants will visit Edmonton next June on a. tour of Western Canada. "At home and abroad I am an ad- vocate of an international comity that makes for business Herr Webber added, "and 1 believe that Canada can be made a link for uniting Great Britain and Germany more closely in friendship. Canada has many claims. "I believe that Germany could pro- fitably share 'with Great Britain and Canada in the development of the country. There are vast opportuni- ties for German manufacturers, owing to the youth of the Dominion and the rapid development of the coast and prairie provinces and the opening of the Peace River -country to the north. "The party of German business men coming to the Canadian west next summer is prepared to invest several millions of dollars in new enterprises and some of this money undoubtedly will find its way into Edmonton. The people here impress me as being alert, progressive and enterprising. They have faith in their city and the fullest confidence in the country. Nothing can stop their progress There are now over 150 notices of inquiries of the Ministry, motions for j production of official papers, resolu- tions, and bills by private nwmburs, etc., in the Commons. TO KEEP IT FOR THE Clever Woman Starts Agitation to Have Legislature Buy Old Edmonton Fort TO ENCOURAGE POULTRY INDUSTRY Ethnonton, Nov. Arthur Murphy, president of the Women's Canadian Club of Edmonton, is at the head of a movement to briny be- fore the provincial legislature, which 1 meet here next spring, a plan for taking steps to preserve for the peo pie the buildings known as Fort ttd- monton, and occupied by factors and traders of the Hudson's Bay company, organized in 1670. These buildings have been used by the department of works of Al- berta for storage and office purposes, "hut Mrs. Murphy says, "that the parliament buildings, costing have been completed and opened, there no longer exists any valid reason why the fort should not be restored and kept as a memorial the days when it was known as 'the of The original fort was owned by the North West Fur Company and built in the latter part of the 38th century by J. Hughes, M. Shaw and J. McDonald, of Garth. It was known as Fort des Prairiee and sometimes as Fort, in 1805. Later, it was, called Fort Augustus. There is no authentic record of the exact date when the 'Hudson's Bay company built Its fort in Edmonton, but it had I one as early as 1S05, when Donald McDonald was in charge. It was a small and comparatively unimportant Edmonton, Nov. Duncan .Marshall, minister of agriculture for Alberta, has placed an order with a firm in Montreal for a thousand pure- bred Barred Plymouth Hocks, Hhode Island Reds, Buff Orp- ingtons and White Wyandottes for delivery early next spring to the provincial poultry farm in Edmonton. The birds are solely for breeding purposes. Stock and eggs will be deliv- ered to farmers and poultry growers direct from the ex- perimental farms in various parts cf the province. It is expected that several thousand high 'grade birds will be added to the Hocks during the coin- ing year. Mr. Marshall believes the best way to encourage the industry is to assist the form- ers. post at this time, for the main post of the Hudson's Bay company wag at Dogrump Fort, near St. Paul de Metis. These t'wo companies were amalga- mated in 1821. At this period, the Hudson's Bay company was in char of iM. Bird, who named the new po Fort Edmonton after his birthplace England Mr. Bird was retired fro service, and the new fort placed the charge of John Rowand, a nati of Quebec, associated with the Nor West Fur -who 'built th house known as "Rowand's named because it consisted of thn storeys. This was the first sky sera er of the province of Alberta. Ro and died in Edmonton. He was "I 'factor of the post" and on his1 deat bed commanded that his bones be i terred in. Quebec. It may interest tl curious to know that his order carried out to the letter, the flesh fir being removed from the bones by th process of boiling. Rowand's successors as chief fac ors were, in turn, Messrs. Sinclai Christie, Swanson and Hard is t; "Rowand's Folly" was razed in 1ST by Chief Factor .Hardisty, who bui what became known as the "Hi House." This residence was destro; ed by fire ten years ago. Many notable men visited the pos at Fort Edmonton 'from time to time one of the most interesting bein Captain Palliser, who was sent out i 'by the British government t study the conditions in Western Can ada .with a view to considering it pcssibility as a home for white peo pie. Mrs. Murphy's plan is to either hav. the decayed logs replaced or to re build the structure in the same man ner and in the same dimensions, ing, wherever possible, the origina materials. The massive timbers ii the assembly hall, which 'were whij: sawn and bewn with broad axes, an still in good condition. The clamps anil bolts which fastened the shutters to the windows, and the ponderous locks and keys, winch weigh a poum ouch, are yet in the building. The cellar, where the honorable company of gentlemen stored their wines, is still preserved u-nd the brick powtlei house was until recently used by the government as a rabbit-hutch. "In requesting the legislature to reserve these Mrs. Murphj said, "we nee-el fct-1 no diffidence not cffcr any apology. The fort is pro- vincial property and as citizens of Al- berta we look to our representatives to seo that it is preserved, and if no- cessary, properly restored. "Wo have oomo a long 'way since then but the remains of the old fort wo have with us still, and I 'believe the members of the legislature people in general will agree with mo that its history Is of sufficient interest and value to bo preserved as a central landmark of ihe capital city of the province of Alberta."
