OUR LETTER BOX. -REPLY TO "RESTRICTION' Lcthbridge, April 15, 1909 Bditor Lethbridge Herald: Dear your issue of April 12th there appears an anonymous let ter; signed "-Restriction." I am ra- ther surprised that you did not ap- ply the full meaning of that word before allowing the rather cd his mess a "screed." "He probab- ly ditl not know the meaning of the word but we can forgive him for a little thing1 like that. It is very doubtful if he knows the meaning of life or the true worth of a man to the community. It was not enough for "Restriction" to put the interro- gation point after "ladies" but he must give vent to his. true character supplementing the same with a parenthetical expression. Blasphemy and that which "Restric- tion" stands for are twin brothers. your polumns for such They go hand in glove and "Eestric- scurrilous and slanderous matter as tioii's" shameful use of the name of "Restriction's" un-restricted letter Diety is but a revelation of the age contains. Heretofore the high moral thing itself. Twice in one little tone of your paper has 'been its chiet paragraph he uses the ''question and most praiseworthy, characteristic j mark" after the word The and while I am perfectly aware of the "question marks" are very frequent- fact that you do not hold yourseli so much so that one might be justly responsible -for the views entertained led to believe there was a question-- by1, your correspondents, still, when J able character behind it all. you permit two of the leading And whatsis this petition?

What ;do you thinJc of the backbone of the man who is ashamed to sign his own name his father man who engages in guerilla warfare from man who picks for his target two ies wfeo are respected and held in high esteem by all decent; jreputabla idents of the city, wish to present to your noticeTthe following petition. Whereas it is a matter of common, knowledge that certain houses :of ill- fame are said to exist city, notably in the vicinity of the Isola- tion Hospital and the Gait Hospital, and such a-state -of affairs we! con- sider" to be a disgrace :to our city, therefore we would petition you to do all in your power-towards closing such 'houses and suppressing- the so- cial evil ;to the full, extent of your le- gal power." v.. This is the petition that the ladies presented and it is for this that "JRestriction" is allow- ed to impute 'to them depraved -.mo- tives and -slander their fair names in a public press "did not even have the decency or com- Ccuneil and while o( the council arc a time when the delegation now having the matter In hand can -be heard, pcixl- Jjg that conference this precipitate castlgation of these ladies or or Up., work in hand is not only unwarrant-r ed but palpably mean and despicable in the extreme1. "Restriction" says that the ladioi took advantage of their sex to se- cure irames and that "live" of them surrounded him at one time for that purpose. While we admire their in- tegrity, we must condemn their judg-l rnent for wasting so much valuable time on such worthless stuff. A inan that is immune to the importunities of "five females" can have but little j hope in humanity or faith ia. him-'j self. This thing of saying that "five I females" xvere arguing the point allj at once is fiction pure and simple the mind of "Restriction" if his i mind is capable of entertaining such "simple" fiction. All that the petition asks is that the Council will exercise its legal powers towards the suppression of the social evil and remove the flag- rant advertisement to the City's shame which is flaunting itself right under the very "eyes and nose" of the officers of the law. It does not ask the Council to -go outside the law but merely to enforce the law. Every decent man will say "Amfeii" to the proposition, something be done." Some of the brightest and best men in the city have signed the petition. They signed it in good faith, in. the spirit and tenor of the same, signed it because they wanted to, not be- cause the ladies presented it before them and asked them to. TheyVere not coerced; they were not intimidat ed, cajoled or unduly persuaded. Since the petition has been in the hands of the writer men have called and asked to be permitted-to sign it and strange to say they, were not re- HOUSE CLEANING of being a mono- tonous drudgery a pleasure when Sunlight helps you.
