OUR VISITORS have this Of all the visited Lethbridge during year none carry with greater possibilities of benefit to Lethbridge and district than do the parties who are with us today. H the Scottish agriculturalists and Bri- tish mining engineers are satisfied that this country is' alright from their respective standpoints, no one can estimate Che good that will ac- crue. Both parties are composed of experts who know exactly what they are looking for and will know it when they see it. Therefore it is the business of the people of this vicin- ity to show -them what we have with- full confidence best there is.

Al- though mining has been carried on here for many years the industry is but in its infancy. As yet the Gait mines are the only mines that have passed the development stage and are producing coal in any quantity There are several large properties in process of development as the Dia inond Coal Co., the Royal Collieries the Lethbridge Collieries and beside these there are several smaller mine producing coal in small quautitie which if taken over by concerns with capital would have the outpu greatly increased. Lethbridge i without doubt the centre of the greatest area of bituminous coal in Canada, if .not in America. As yet its extent is but imperfectly known. In nearly every coulee for scores cl miles in every direction there are outcroppings of coal. As farmers sink their wells in various parts of the country they come across layers of good coal. The visiting mine op- erators seeing the extent and quality of the coal are bound- to be interest- ed which to men of this stamp means much more than the satisfying of a passing curiosity. There is no doubt but what coalmining in this district is a good thing. There are unlimit- ed areas, and the quality is the best possible for domestic coal and much of it good steam coal. It is found in layers thick enough to make easy and profitable working, it being nec- essary to take out very little dirt with the coal. Moreover, there is a great and expanding market with good railway facilities with immed- iate prospects of much better. These are facts that doubtless the visiting miners will see for themselves and be convinced that this district is good place to invest their capital fo the production of the fuel for the Great Canadian West. v When travellers, excursion, parties and landseekers, come to us from across the line, or from eastern Ca- nada, they all come with the same eyes, viz, to sec wheat and wheat lands. But such ia not the case with the party of Scotch agriculturalls's. They come with eyes for a dozen or a score of things.

In New Brunswick the Libe party is divided and a Conservative Government is in power; but it is not probable that there will be anything like' a slump to the Conservatives in that Province. In Ontario and the West the Conservatives are sure to gain pome seats, but it is almost as certain that the Government will al- so make some gains, and the net gain "Jfernie, a prosperous town of six thousand in the south-eastern corner of Vancouver has been destroyed by fire'."

These have been in every case the percur- sors of the fire, and in many in- stances, warned people of the im- minence of the danger before it was otherwise known. The terrorized animals crowded the gullies and the prairie, where safety might be found, regardless of the presence of human beings." One wonders what brand would produce the above. It is a fact, and one which annoys English people who have settled or are so- journing in Canada, that English pa- pers, as a general rule, show such a lack, of knowledge about this country its people and the conditions here.

The exaggeration in. the above par- agraph is too evident to call for com ment. Further on, this great family newspaper of the English working classes says: "Then followed the news that after destroying Ferule the flames had wiped out Hosraer, with a population of 500; Olsen, with 300 inhabitants; and Sparwood, with 200, and had attacked Michel Morrissey was partially burned, and the devastation reach- ed as far south as Elko, only a small portion of the town escap- ing." Who ever telegraphed the above could have known very little about the lav of the country. Once more: "Appalling scenes were witnessed during the Sight of the people from the flames, which swept down the mountain sides like fierce torrents, devouring everything in their way.
