Kails, postmaster at Fenella, about sixteen BROWN SOLD (Taber Free Press.) There has been considerable talk of late that the large tract of land near ,Taber, known as Brown base, had been disposed of to a com- pany who would promote an irri-' gation scheme. In 'factrsome went so far as to say that surveyors were on the-ground making the surveys. Though those who knew differently deni.-d it, yet for political purposes ,jrefis he ,story was kept going. To satisfy limself and get a positive latement n reference to it Senator DeVeber wrote to Mr. E. H. Mannsell, 'the owner of' thi lease, and asked him about it. Mr. Maunsell's reply is icreto appended at the request of Senator DeVeber and it speaks for itself.- -This should put a quietus'ori this party yarn. The" following is Maunsell's lett Macleod, Sept. 7th, 1908; Dear Senator had your letter of the 3rd ihst. in which you ask me if I have disposed of my in- terest' in lease to" parties whoss ob- ject is to promote an irrigation scheme. The extent" of the lease known as the Brown lease is between sixty and sixty-six thousand acres, and I understand that the order-in-council which sanctioned the granting of similar leases" permits the lessee to purchase one-tenth of th.2. lease, but at no fixed price. The. extent of the open lease is approximately acres. I report myself that I had disposed of the leases and would be much obliged, if you would contra >diet this.
