LETHBRIDGE BRANCH: J. R. Manager. WatervaJ Boven Bridge NEW DEVIATION In Favor of a New City Hall Men inD ilemma Over a Baby Italian Miner From Alberta In Montreal i (Montreal Witness.) When the Pacific "Express arrived at the Windsor Street Station this mor- ning a dark eyed, swarthy Italian workman, with three, tiny children hanging onto his coattails, and a mysterious bundle in his arms, alight cd on the. platform. He'looked, ar- ound the station in bcwilderment-for n while, and then inquired of !the at- tendants if there was any place in which he could stay with his children until the train goes out this evening for New York. The troubled demeanor of the an anywhere in sight to: ofTcr ,a sug- gestion. Fnally the fatherly Richards hit upon an idcn. "What havc you been Feeding the poor little thing he asked. The man produced a feeding half-filled with cold and apparently sour milk. Richards -emphatically condemned the stuff on the spot. "Don't give it any he said, don't know much about it, but I'm sure that's not the "proper stuff to feed the little creature on." I "But what I asked the man pathetically. "I'll '-tell you what to said The newly organized Ratepayers' Association inci iu the council chain- last night to 'complete 'the of organizing and for the election of the permanent officers. Aid. K. A. Cunningham was ap- pointed to the chair and in. a neat little speech declared himself to be-in sympathy with any "organization cal- culated to bring the public and the cpuncil closer, and expressed the hope that good would result from the for- mation of a Citizen's League. He bclicy'ed that something would be accomplished if undue criticism were not made. In Mr. Cunningham's opinion there should be no closed committee meet- ings. The people should know all the details of municipal work. Howard Case was after the scalps of those who are chromic hard "kick- ers" on the streets but who had no- thing to say .at a meeting where grievances should be aired. He also found fault with the training the Lord Mayor gave his son who pre- sumtuously called the League a "fledgeling." He expected to behold it as a strong bird! This same young- ster spoke disrespectfully of the "knockers" wh'6 attended the first meeting. .In his inauguration address Davi King explained that he. had started the .movement, because he had been asked to take "kicks" to the council, and laid down as his first rule that no private matter or individual spite could he brought before the associa- tion. He hoped all would take a propor view of the aims of the league and thus help it to be a help to the coun- cil, lie asked for the cooperation of all that the work might be conduct- ed in a straight forward, manly way. The fee to become a member of "the league was fixed at oac Aftcr" s'omo discussion "as to a7nahic for the organization it decided that it-should be called "The Leth- bridge Ratepayers' Association." The, secretary was asked to com- municate with the Citizen's League at Calgary and procure a copy of their bylaws for consideration at tho next meeting. The bilkers ,vero elected: President, David Vice-president, Howard Case. Secretary, J. L. Caldcr. Treasurer, .Tqhn .IVodie. Barclay, lluch- Staflord, Daniels, ilktchett, and the a.wkward care with whiclvhu carried the bundle in his arms caused Richards, and he told him. The re- sult was that with a few minutes the matron at the Italian boarding house on Osborne street had agreed to take the baby in.-, charge and wash and feed it, till .this evening. And .when a 'Witness' representative left the sta- tion at noon, the bereaved father was brushing up his_other three lit- tle ones in the immigration sheds. under the direction of the aforesaid .Home q'-iestienirig, nntl reply the to the astonishment of the at- tendants, unwrapped his bundle and exhibited a new-born "Where did you get he was asked. "It is he replied. "Yes, but whcre's the "She is dead." Jn good Knglish the man told his sad story. He was, he said, a nat- uralized American hut had been working during the past winter in the coal mines in Alberta. Ten days ago his .wife died in'giving birth ijto the baby. He buried away in Alberta, and was now tak- ing the baby and his three other lit- tlc'children to his sister in New York. At this point the newly-born burst into n. loud squall, as if to show that it was very much alive despite its tender, age. The fallier tried in vain to comfort it, and a dozen of the station stafT stood around, and scratched thctf. heads in perplexity ns to what ought to done. There was not a single worn- Richards. Adam Withers, xWiotfaml, Hagell and Hedges. At the conclusion of the :tion Aid. Cunningham gave a detail- ed account of tKe condition of the fire, department and of the intended improvements. He asked for the co- operation of, the citizens along this line and .hopod they would look fav- orably upon the bylaw' when it came before them. One feature in connection with the new fire hall mentioned by Mr. Cun- ningham met with the hearty appro- val of the meeting, providing accommodation "-.for the brigade, which would tend to increase its effi- ciency. Asked as to whether the gymnas- ium and amusement hall provided for the firemen would take the placo of a general 'dub room which is at j present bfing spoken of, Mr. Cun-1 ningham said, that the fire hull equip] ment would not embrace or conflict with such a scheme on the part of the city as a .wholf. The firemen however, would be at lilwrty to: in-. ,vite their friends. 7 The matter of a..public hall for the city was mentionwl by several of. those present. As a result Howard Case gave no- tice, of a.motion to he brought in at next meeting to. trie effect thai a res- olution ,be passed1-'asking the council to consider the matter with a view The next meeting of the league will be held on April 15th, unless otherwise notified through the press. 25o. one Insertion, (j> liuiertioiw f 1.00 for cfcurch.

Utah .needs fewer of the knockers she has and more boosters like John of Cardaton, Canada. He sees clearly that Utah has not grown, can never grow as long as there ia suh vicious contests in the state He wouldn't put a dollar here, and the number that would, or do, arc few. Mr. 'Wbolf says, "get together." pull together, forget the crazy relig- ious-political crank, bury the hatchet and grow. He believes Senator Smoot should either cut out hia apos- lleship or his good of the state demands it.

He believes that strong senti- ment in favor of broadness and liber- ,y, both politically religiously, would result in a progressive Utah, and certainly a happier Utah. Mr. Woolf comes from a section there is little or no contention of any kind, where the people are unit- ed for progress and greater welfare of the whole and he necessarily finds contact with Utah's conditions dis- agreeable beyond measure. Just how much_ more intolerable it is to tho same man who lives in the midst of this contention, who hUs it for break- fast, dinner and supper and hears it on the gramophone and telephone at night, is easier .imagined .than des- cribed.
