Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 11, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE HERALD PRINTING CO., LTD. 0. D. AUSTIN, Editor and Mimftr. W. JORDAN, Sapt. of Job Dcpsrtacnt. ^jfiSCRIPTtON: lo KA anoo � Sl.BO a year Otherwise  93.00 a year ADVERTISING. Month  tl.00 Per Inoh OCR POINT IF VIEW The peotilc of this province wilt be dellehted with the plnn, unfolded In the TecislaUire by the Premier, to tax the lands outside of tht> organ -Izcd school districts for the support of "Education. The tax will not fall upon the settler except in ft few isolated cases for usually the man who has taken up land is a member of a community large enough to be organized into a school district. The new tax will affect, almost wholly, the holdings of corporations, syndicates and speculators, ami will compclt'hcsc people to pay tribute to tho very good cause of Education. This is as it should be. Why should the spec -ulator escape a tax, while tho settler who has taken up land and Is improving it, as welt ns the land, near at hand, held by a syndicate pays taxes. The settler wants a school for his family to attend and in the past he has had to pay a tax on his land for the support of schools while a township adjoining the one or*, goes untaxed. The untaxed hind in which he lives, held by speculat  is made more valuable by the existence near it of a school and a settlement of iK>oplc, �>ho arc cultivating the land and proving that tho country Is rich in its agricultural re -sources. Yet the speculator, up to the present has not l*>en taxed for the support of education, though the presence of a school, supported by the'settler, adds unquestionably to the value of his property. Realizing these conditions, the Minister of Fdu-eution, decided to submit to the legislature a bill providing for a tax . . . � � . ., _ pec1 public of two dollars per quarter section on ,,,________ lands in a district where a school has not been established. Tho rev - enue to le derived In this way will l>e appropriated wholly to the cause of Education, Iieing divided among public school, high school and un - iversities. by an educated people, and ihe pub  lie and high schools, and the University, which we are founding now, must be nt the foundation of such hopes. Alberta should be thankful that,.to-day It hns a government fully seized of the Importance of education but however grateful, we tuny feel to-day, it will be In the days to come, that we will rejoice-the days when We look back upon our early history and offer praise for the foresight of tho Government in rocoiy.Vz-Ing ut tho foundation of tin Pro / -inco the importance of tn.j ostabl sh-me/it without delay i f Univ. i-my.

The people in this province want newspapers with spirit and life. Tho trouble in the past, with the Alberta i'ress, has Insen their "copy cat" methods. They lnck originality llut the News is different- It is new, fresh, unique and ought to succeed easily. It's editor Dan McOlllicutidy, wields a facile pen.

The greatest reduction will denote tho greatest efllclency. The city will spend money that will bo i returned to tho people many times over in reduced Insurance rates and insure the best protection ut the nine tiuio, Tho Calgary Herald may bark and bite as much as it likes about the location of'the University at Strath-cona but we would like to inform It that IT HAS HUES' Calgary's worst friend ever since tho Liberals came into power In Alberta. It has abused private tneukbers and even one member, of tho Cabinet so persistent ly that we are safe in saying it has made them feel unfriendly to Calgary. The Herald'* CONDUCT Abb TllltOUOlI the capital fight was of such a style us Injured Calgary's interests. It will not be very long before tho government system of telephones will strike every place of importance In Alberta. than offer sc'.lNh criticism it will l*� time enough to give hwd to them. The city did a wise and grnclous net In ohictlng the retiring-secretary treasurer, ('. 11. liowtnnn. alderman without opposition. No man in the city is Ih'ttcr littfil for the position and it must ho a source of satisfaction to him to know that the city he has nerved so ninny years has taken its first opportunity lo thrust honor upon him.

The fact that Attorney General Cross is going to F.ugland nt tho same time as the Capital lacrosse team, of Ottawa, leads some people | to wonder whether ho is going to tie a. "ringer" on the English team, i Cross hus not forgotten the fine {points of the game yet. None of the other provinces havi; what Is known as a provincial university, so Alberta, In placing its university virtually at the capital, is following the example of overy province in Canada, possessing such an Institution.

Tl e provision for departments of agriculture and engineering proves that the University will serve all that town has had a trip to Ottuwa at the country's expense. Wherever you go in this province you hear the prediction made that Lethbrldge is going to bo at least the third great city of Alberta. We want to see "Old Man" Simpson, of the Cranbrnok Herald get tho justification for that view. We would like to have seen the university placed in the south, but the fact that it is not coming to this part of the province In not a reason that the scctionul cry slim 11 be raised. Since the province cumo into existence Cnl-guiy has fared well. It hns been given the Normal school at an cx-IM'iidiltire of Sl.Vl.OOO Already $00-000 has been spent on one new-bridge uml $2*1,000 hns lieen appropriated for unotbei. There are also appropriations of $100,000 for a new registry oltlce and $33,000 for a court house site. $25,000 are to be s|ient on a coki storage creamery. Lethbrldge is to have the provincial Jail, upon which nearly $".">.OOo will lie expended. It is also likely u new-court house will bo built here in the very near future. A fine new court house Is under construction nt Curd-stun. A very costly bridge is Iving built nt Medicine Hat. and several in the Maclood and Pincher Creek districts. So from the m.iteriul stnnd-| point the south is boing well treat-led. We are informed by the lminigru  Hon Agent, that, owing to thechangc of the Dominion Fiscal year from the 30th .June to the 3lst of March, ' 1000-7 covers only the nine months ending nt the latter date. The figures cannot yet lie given, but the general information furnished will Le interesting to our readers, boar- ' ing, ns it directly does upon the economic conditions and progress of Southern Alberta. It is gratifying to know that the immigration dur  ing the past season has been very satisfactory, both ns regards intelligence and means, and, it may bo added, especially gratifying to us, inasmuch ns nearly all of the incomers settled in Alhertn, ami the largest proportion of these in the Southern parts of thv- Province. Tho unusual severity of the past viittcr, checked the movement very seriously, and the spring being late, not only hero but to the south of us. it is only recently that the hi ream hus begun to flow in, and promised lo develop into the most prolific season we have yet had. As usual by fur tho largest percentago of incomers consist of Americans, noticeably by their names of British stock illrcetly or originally; together with Cnnad ians and llritish.

No better man could be qualify for the professions of law,'.chosen and he would soon muko tho medicine und teaching have an op  porlunlty to bo educated In a Provincial University, but the young man. who is anxious lo gather a full knowledge of the science of agriculture, in order thai he may bo an intelligent farmer, will have at this Provincial University the opportunity of sccur -ing tho required training. And so It .will be with tho young man, Who is inclined to take up an engineering course Ho will |m> onablod to qualify himself at tho Alberta University thus avoiding the necessity, that exists now of going to Eastern Canada to tako such a course. Domestic Science and Manual Train ing in schools of our citios . and towns is to bo encouraged. That is good news. It is all very well for our young men and women to bo proficient in tho three R's. (reading, writing and arithmetic) but it is al dry bonds down thero come to life. It is men of the vigorous tyi>o like Simpson we want down there. Hon. H. It. Emmerson says he is a decent sinner.

Thoso of our boys and girls, who may not be ablo to pursue a University courso, can gather, however, in their locahwhools knowledge in manual training and domestic science, that will serve them well in life. Ah tho Province grows, comes tho necessity for more High Schools. The land tax will assist High School classes boing established in more of our tow us, and thus tho young people will be enabled to proceed far  tber ulong tho educational road at their home schools. Tho day is near at hund, .when schools, confined wholly to High .School work will exist in our cities and towns, and that day cannot come too soon, for such schools, well equipped and with i a staff of fully qualified teachers, can do much to promote the causa of hlgbef education.

Print itl Sing ill The Southern Alberta furmer ought to rnmetnbor that all the money is not made in grain. Goneral farming is what the country needs and is exactly the thing that will mako the farmer prosperous. Keep cattle, pigs sheep and poultry. Deputy minister of Agriculture, Harco'urt, declared in a recent speech, that $400,000 ofeggs and poultry were imported into Alberta annually. This should bo ul -tared. Alberta should not only provide its own pooplo with eggs and poultry, but it should raise enough to supply other markets. It will pay the farmers to go into poultry rais -ing extensively. Thero is monoy iu it; the trouble Is little and the profits great. There is no bettor climate in the world for poultry rals  lag than Alberta either. The recommendation of Aid. Cun-nlngham that tho Council consult with the Underwriters' Association The Toronto Ololw expresses itsolf in sympathy with Mr. Green way's opposition to Oliver's Land Dill. Tho ghjcclluus of the Globo are from a western standpoint rather amusing and Indeed are only a reflection of a very strong sentiment apparently taking root with many oastem Canadians, that the rapid growth of the west will soon displace the balance of powor in Canada. To quote tho Gloho, -'What Mr. Greonwuy seems to fear is the disturbance of population that would ho caused by the offer of a uro-emptlon lot to overy western homesteader." Is tho memory of the GIoIhj so short as tb forget that in the settlement of tho autonomy terms tho reason givon by tho Federuf government for withholding the laud Irom tho new provinces was that the Dominion could hotter administer them in the interests of the Province an tho Dominion was already equipped with magnificent immigration machinery? The Minister of tho Interior, followed this up in tho first provincial campaign of tho now provinces by announcing that the policy of tho fedoral government was to piucoxiho lands in the hands of iho actual settlor rather than the speculator. Nelthor Mr. Green way [nor the GIoImj attempt to deny the efllcucy of Mr. Oliver's proposed laud bill to effect this purpose. Indeed their studied uttitudo of foar that it will he only too successful In this regard is a complete vindication not to mention unintentional, but well expressed trlbuto to Oliver's sagacity. This from tho Globe, after its pettifogging excuses of a few days previous for the tioing up in a closed louse of a large tract of land un-dor thu fiction of the Cal -wuy Horse and Cattle Company's leuso is indeed surprising and a rude shock to tho wostorn rouders of thu Globo who have looked upon thut Journal as t^ho mouthpiece of popular rights. Imagine tho Globo tolling a fanner immigrant from tho Wostorn Stutos that 320 acres is too lurgo a farm for him. Wus Mr. Greonwuy content to till a furtu of 100 acres? No one knows bettor than Greouway that the successful western fnrmor plant* ono half of his farm oacb season and keeps tho other half in open cultivation to be in proper condition, for seeding the following spring. llut who is beet fitted to advise Sir Wilfrid's government as to tho* disposal of Alborta lands? Is it the over three-fourths of the entire in comings during the season. The remainder consist of Scundinuvians, Germans ami other nationalities, including French, Hungarians, Finns, Swiss, Italians and Australians. Set-ling aside women and children and luborers, by fur the largest |>orcont-age consists of farmers and ranchers all of whom have personally taken up homesteads, or bought farming land in I ho Province or elsownvrv, for only those incomers nre register ed whose intention is to settle |>er-mancntly iu the country. A salient feature of our immigration front the States is its foreliandeiluess. A very l.irte proportion of immigrantscome well supplied with implements, stock househobl effects or ready money, and almost all are experienced. Their knowledge therefore is at once up  pl.ed to tho l.ind, tho result Ix-lng that they liecoine producers almost from the sturt. in sharp contrast with those who come In lacking these advantages. Tho value of the properly brought by them is very great, and is a marked addition to the accrued wealth of the province. Up -wards of 1,100 farmers, nearly all fri'in the Mountain nnd Wewlern States have come in via the A.H. & 1. Riihva.v yo.uiy for several yours jpust, and these now constitute by their correspondence with their relatives and friends in tho South, n valuable immigration agency. lly this and other means a real knowledge.of Western Canudu, of its rcsourcesnnd the inducements it offers In tho north of free or chenp lunds, low taxation, an exrcilont school system, nnd Just laws impartially administered is now becoming v-ido spread through tho l>iiitcd States nnd is drawing to us from till parts, farmers of tho best class.
