McKenziu, re- presenting the business interests, will leave this evening for Ottawa, to co-operate there with C. A. Jlasrath in urging upon the Dominion govern- ment the mutter of securing a larger number of soldiers to winter in Lcth- ibridge than is at present proposed. -Mr. Ball was selected us representa- tive of the city by the commission- ers, and his expenses will be paid by Hie city. Mr. McKenzic'has been se- lected by the retail merchants and other business interests, and they will pay bis expenses east. It is felt that these two gentlemen will be able to place 'before Premier Borclen and his cabinet in ,1 forceful manner, the claims of Let lib ridge in the matlei of more soldiers for tlie winter. Want 13th C. M. R. At present it is proposed to Quarter here only (lie 39fh 'battery of'140 odd men, which together with the inter- nes now here, would make a total of less than 300. The 13th C. M. R., which was recruited for the greater part in tlie country adjacent to Loth- bridge, Is heiug sent to winter at Red D-BOr. Not only is this felt to be unfair tlie city of Lethbridge, but it Is felt also to unfair to the men themselves, many of vliom have south country, who will probably remove to Reel Deer if the unit is stationed there. If ttliis unit were'sent to Lethbridge the total of men here to about liOO. The district commanders are now meeting in Ottawa, and the Leth- bridge men arc hastening east order that they may present their claims 'before definite plans are fixed for the wintering of the soldiers.
