ADVERTISING; J��r Month l.OOPerlnoh| OUR POINT IF VIEW The first anniversary of the elevation of our municipality to eltyhoocl ] with lis privileges and rosponsibill -ties should be fittingly celebrated. The city council is taking hold of the matter energetically and deserves the | hearty support of every citizen and of ovcry business and social organisation. Ante-celebrntion suggestions j will bo move In order than post-celebration fault-finding. This is a matter lu which everyone has an interest Let every cltlaen realize that Leth-bridge Is not merely a place tnwhlch to make money, but it is a place In which to llvo and enjoy life. Those functions stimulate public spirit without which any place will stag nate as far as its life as a community ] is concerned. You are all Invited to the city's' first birthday party. Put on your ] sweetest smile and use your cheer -lost words to make the party a success. Seventeen hundred and thirty-five good big hoalthy trees planted in the city this spring wilt increaso the beauty of our city which is already noted for its verdant beauties. The Herald has admired tho Ed-1 monton Saturday News over since it commenced publication and it is with real pleasure, we notice that its growth has been rapid enough to ! warrant it purchasing a printing I plant of its own. Already a marked I improvement typographically is noticed and all wo hope for now is that the paper will 1)0 enlarged, so we can fill ourselves with tho good stuff the News deals out. Wo believe we are safo in saying the editorial views of the News uru the most thoughtful and carefully written of any paper in Alberta. The Xcws appeals to the highest tnorul sonsc and is rapidly becoming a factor in tho affairs ot| this province. Fowler, tho Conservative member, | who ma do insinuations against tho | morals of some of the Ottawa Cab lsot Ministers ought to prove his 1 charges or step out of public life. An investigation should 1h> held and if it is found tho private life of any Cabinet Minister Is immoral, ha tfhould bo forced out of public life, a. It tho charges ure not sustained then the scandul mongers ought to bc| "tarred and feathered." True Can -adians want pure men in Utvlr public life. The City's Birthday On Muy 9, the city will be a year j old and the event is to bo celebrated in a right and proper manner. Tho City Council is Inviting the Hoard of Trade, tho Trudes and Labor Council, and the various athletic clubs to co-o|>crate in the I celebration. The general plan as It is arranged so far is to huvo a pro -cession including the school children | othor bodies in tho morning, sports tho cadet corps, the flro brigado and in.the afternoon, with fireworks and some public function to close the day. Bell Telephone Change* W. H. Winter of Montreal, general I �uperintendont of construction and W. II. Hayes of Winnipeg, assistant! manager of tho North-West depart went of the Bell Telephone Co. wore | in the city looking over tho sltua -tlon with tho view of robuilding thai most of the open wire on tho streets plant to iucrease the capacity.

The majority of the entries have been for hoinestoad in the Littlo Bow district and in the territory lying between Tuber and Grassy Lake. The number of entries this year is slightly lower than that for March 1900. The flow of settlement has no "doubt been greatly retarded by tho unseasonable weather experienced bore this spring. With tho opening up of spring a great rush is oxpoctod. No More Free Firewood ..

J spiting GOSSIP Fcrnie hus organized a football team with some excellent material to make a winning aggregation. J. II. Brholflold, the veteran foot-bull enthusiast of Plncher Creek, In-formed the Herald man thai al -though he was retiring from active football management this year, he hoped to see his team the champion* of Canada. Last year, the English newspaper, The People, donated a 3400 shield to represent the champ -ionshlp of tho Dominion. The shield was given to the Thistles of Toronto, but is now in Winnipog, although tho Thistles are still the defenders. Tho series in ail the provinces are supposed to be through by mid * summer. Tho champions of. the western and eastorn provinces will play off until the champions on �ach side of Winnipeg will meet at tho exhibition in that city to decide the nat -ional championship, Mr. Scholfteld says that the Kinchor boys play better football than tho Eastern teams and he Is confident that the boautiful trophy will rest in tho hands of the first winners at Pincher Crook. It was only by a fluko that tho Western chainpiousUlp did not come their way last year remarked the Pincher manager. "You cannot go out and got a win-uing ball club in ten minutes," says Vice-President Kilfoyl. of the Cleveland Club. "Even if you have unlimited resources, you cannot accomplish it in a short time. At the least calculation three or four years are required. Uood.ball players do not grow every day and roonoy. will not buy a ball piuyor who cjih fteld and bat and run. They ere not for for the simple reason that some well established club has thorn tied iip and will - not let go/ Baseball has grown into a large business and is increasing in scope daily. About the only way a management can All its depleted ranks is to socuro the youngsters who look good and take a chance on developing major league players. And, even when you are do-Unf.tfial..". yo,B,i�ave.nothing better rtban' an even break 'with' the " other teams who have scouts in the minor leagues all the time. It is very easy to talk pennant vinnors and very hard to get them. It is difficult to estimate in money the value of an established lull pleyor of reputation. -+ MARRIED.
