Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - October 16, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 16, 1918 THE LETHBRIDGK DAILY n^Afji PAGE SEVEN * > * > > : * NEWS NOTE8 ? * > Hlty of Alberta has a peculiar intornst. In Khaki University, as President Tory haw boon overseas for practically n year and a halt engaged In lis organization und administration. Col. Oeo. V. Porter, In a special letter written from Lethhridgo to the Toronto Telegram ahout the. Monnou-Hen In Southern Alberta, sayB: While �ho basis of hostility toward the Invasion ot Mennonltes Into Southern Alberta In equally as deep and grim as in Saskatchewan, whnro the presonco of these aormnns Invited and prof:'*! from tlio burdens of military responsibility Is more Blaring, there is no suggestion In this pnrt of the provlneo yiat tlirro has been any misuse of Hie exemption rord such as Is commonly charged In thn Men-nonlto sottlctnonts of Haskatchewau. While, of course, Hie chief resent-inout against those alien enemies Is that they are Germans and not want ed hero on any terras, the immediate cause ot dissatisfaction Is the moth uilloai manner In which they nre grabbing all desirable laud that can be purchased between Lothhrldge and 1 the border for a distance oast and �west ot at leant fifty miles. Indignation Grows Then the fact has been disclosed that they are actually negotiating with the Government to try and pur-: cliase the Blackfoot Indian reserve Jr. was bad enough when It wns mnde  public a few days ago that thoso alien enomies had paid more than oho mllllou dollars In the past month for the most, desirable tracts of IhwI for sale In Southern Alberto, but the report ot their IntriRiie In get the Indian renorve, which it bus been felt would naturally bo settled tipon by the returned soldiers with the assist-iince of the Land Settlement Hoard, the Indignation of the people passed -.ill bounds. There, may be nothing developed, but It has uroused the people to anion. Whence Cornea the Cash? A curious aspect of this situation l� the. vasl quantities of cash at their � ommiind. Whence comes no much money at filch a time In (lie baud* nf all#n enemies? That Is the question being very generally dUrusgcd | on the street* and ut public meet- j Inns, lt:�htly or wrongly, the explanation that it comes from community funds Is not accepted. There is a strong belief that It Is (lerruan (lov-  rniaont money diverted from the huge sums known to have been In (lernma and Austrian hand* at the Utile Hi* Pnltud Htute* went to war. which their spies hud no further i hanrc to use in the republic and that it Is belni; utlllxvd for this purpose with sinister designs [�'or instance. a ioininltt��- of these Oermuns were last week �huwn nv Hie higher authorities These premises include the school, rhunh and various other buildings controlled by tho Anglican Church Missionary Society, Bin Deals The Calgary Colonisation recently , sold to lhc�o aliens ull their vast holdings south of Lthhridg a! Ilcr.-k-ford, and the first payment SI 75.000 In caah. These aliens r.lw.o-have cash or kjUI drafts on New York hank*. There seems to be no limit to the amount of cash they can i omnium! for deals of this kind wherr the land is desirable and in large tracts such u� make communal farm-lug possible. This spring the Mennonlles purchased outright for cash the old Pearson ranch of C'.'uo ai tv. including many valuable h'uilrtingr, u general store, etc., uSid a his colony l� already there breaking the luml and building communal houses The bill for first ahtpruent of lunger to this out tit, placed with Lethbrldge lumber company, was for ten thousand dollar*---all cash. The Pearson ranrh Is a famous-piece of fine agricultural laud at Standoff near .Macleod. Hinds of Calgary sold three thousand acres in this district to tho Men-nonlte committee. As usual, It was a  ash transaction. Tho Mcfuiyro ranch, southwest of Lethbrldge. containing IMO.0A0 acres, wunt to th�se same aliens, this committee, at sixty-two dollar p�r acre. Another Million The Traeht ranch, twenty miles south of Lethbrldge, went to the Men-nonltfi committee this spring at one hundred dollar* per acre. It was for cash and thiwe people don't quibble former Turkish aiuhnsmdor to Britain, as lias been provh uaiy i. nd, according to a Constantino;: Iroat �port-i ills- over prices. They apparently can af ford to pay more for land than other j an equally gratifying response The lantern slide service of the department, of extension of the Culver-slty or Alberta promises to be even mote popular this winter than l�nt. Claim or Individuals wishing to avail themselves or tltlR service should send In their applications as early as possible, and should In ovory case make a second and third choice In order to avoid delay and disappointment. Applications should he made to the visual instruction division, department of e\touslon, University of Alberta. There are also Indications that the services or the travelling library division of this department wilt ho used more extensively 'this yoar. The circulation of tho open shelf books during tho month of September was neurly three times that of September. 1917. In making application for these, as for lantern slides, a second and third choice should be made.

They drive out, look the place over, go direct to the owner, u�k his price and hand him a doposli the moment he ha* made the first offer, the balance to be in cash ou delivery of the papers. This Is entirely dlxerent from all tho experience of land dealers covering a considerable period In this territory. Usually they seem In furious haste to get titles, as if they feared tho Government might Interfere In the transactions. The Ferguson ranch, south of Mac-leod, went to the same colony that got the Mc-Intyre and Tracht ranches, the threo Involving exactly one million dollars. No Qtrtnan School* Perhaps these alien* know the Soldier Land Settlement Board has been Investigating this district and they want to pick up all the desirable laud before the commission can get action.

A department for educational services In the Canadian military overseas force* will be established, which will be responsible to the minister ot oversea* force* and will take care of the education of soldiers during the process of demobilization.

The Vulvar- Why Canada must borrow money to carry on Because Canada has put her hand to the plow and will not turn back:- -our country is in the war on the side of liberty and justice and will stay in it till complete victory is won and the unspeakable Hun is smashed and beaten to the ground; -a nation at war must make tremendous expenditures in cash to keepv up her armies and supply them with munitions, food and clothing; --Canada must frnance many millions of dollars of export trade in food, munitions and supplies which Britain and our allies must have on credit; -for these purposes Canada must borrow hundreds of millions of dollars- "v be of And, this money must borrowed from the people Canada:-- Therefore, Canada will presently come to her people for a new Victory Loan to carry on.    Canadians will loan the money by again buying Victory Bonds. The , national safety, the national honor and the national well-being require that each and every Canadian shall do his duty by lending to the nation every cent he can spare for this purpose. Be ready when the call comes to see your country through in its great war work. Issued by Canada's Victory Loan Committee in co-operation with the Minister of Finance of the Dominion of Canada, 51 ;
