Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 16, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESDAY, APRIL Ifi, 1i�1R THE LKTIJIMIIKiK DAILY lUVf.A.LD IT PAGE SEVEN Citizens in a Furore Over 'Joke' $4500 Garbage 'Can' T,ethbrldga Is today collecting Its garbage with ;i $4,500 motor truck. Ijethbi'idge cltUons toOay, since fleeing tlie truck in action, are collecting In little knots on the streets and condemning in no uncertain manner tlio action ot the city in put-chasing what Is said to he a 72-horso-powe/ truck which, in tlio collection ot garbage (or which purposo it was purchased, will do little more Hum what one of the old ono-horse dump carts would do. 'Til tell you what I'll do." said George McLean of .the McLean Transfer Co. to the Humid, "I'll bet one hundred dollars that, 1 can haul more garbnge in one day with my little $750 Ford truck than the city can with the $4,500 nsh pan the council has purchased. It's the joke of the season and a good chance for somebody to resign." The main kick about the truck is that, it is absolutely unsuited for the work it. Is called upon to do. It has plenty of power, but the body is not so large as on the ordinary delivery motor, and not half so large as on the Ford truck used by the McLean Transfer. The body is about seven feet wide and ten feet long, and holds altogether about one and one-half times whut one of the old one-horse dump carts will hold. Considering the fact that garbage is very light, it makes the city look absurd to see fhe truck trundling to 1ho garbage dump with what one good horse could easily haul. Past the Joke Stage "To think thnt three experts sat at the council table and foic.led that thing on us as a money-saver is past the joke stage--it's serious,"...commented President Marnoch of the bovrd of trade. "The truck is in no way suited to the work. It would have to hold six times as much to be of any use, And It Isn't covered. What a fine time we will have on a windy day. The horse carts had the saving grace of being slow so that they didn't jolt off the load, but now we'll have half our garbage on the streets before it ever gets to the dumping place. The re* BALFOUR TELLS"~ (J. S. LABOR MEN OF AIMS OF ALLIES London, April 15.-Germany stands today as a predatory nation and Is trying to destroy the British and French armies before the American forces can be brought into the field, said Arthur J. Balfour, minister for foreign affairs, in responding to a toast at a luncheon to the American Labor delegation today. Pointing out that, the destruction of Germany has never been an allied aim, and was desired, so far as he knew, by "no sane man," Mr. Balfour raid that the Germans had made many miscalculations, but none were more Kriovous than to underestimate the power of America. Britain, ho said, h\ confident that America will be able to send over her "indomitable troops in a way that no German general staff officer has ever calculated." "And in the Prussianized Germany there is a steady determination to prove to the world that force is the �way and the only way to obtain success. They preach that, doctrine and practice that doctrine to show that in the case of Germany it is successful. Object of Germans "It was quite clear from the events now going on in the west that the object of the Germans was. to overcome one fraction of the forces opposed to them in the belief that if these forces were knocked out the others must give in' and a German peace must tye the result. It was for this reason that they had cdncentrat-ed their efforts in front of the British army. "Was that military calculation going to succeed? (Cries of "No, No"). There were many reasons why it should not. Perhaps the most important was because the higher German command were determined that this land struggle should come to an end before the United States could bring its forces to bear upon1 the western front. "The Germans had made many false calculations in the course of the war. One was when they thought that the first passing would bring them to Paris; but it only brought them to the Alarne. Another was that' they thought nothing would induce America, either to break off diplomatic relations with them or enter the war. "Another miscalculation was when they not only boasted but. believed that a few months of unrestricted submarine warfare would destroy the resistance of Great Britain. "These were miscalculations from which the Gormuns were still suffering and from which they would suffer until peace came to the world. "Ab the Germans huve been proved hopelessly wrong In their estimates of the ideals, desires and determination Ot the American people," said Mr. Balfour, "so they will be proved wrong in their estimate as to the speed with �which the Americans will be uble to carry out their purpose and program. "The thought uppermost in all Bfit^ ish minds today is chiefly that America upset the.Germans plans, lihat America will be able to send over her indomitable forces in a way which no German staff officer has ever calculated. It is men we need now." The other speakers were Minister of Labor George N. Nicol Barnes, and Viscount Bryce. The American speakers were Ambassador Page, James Wilson, president of the Pattern Makers League of North America and Edward Meredith, director of tu� Aak-rican chamber of commerce. Plea For Men Viscount. Bryce emphasized Mr: Bul-lour'a alea for men. ^ �~ i sponsibility doesn't, rest with any one man on the council either. If one commissioner's judgment was bad, .surely we had a right to expect a check-rein from the other two." A Crime "What, kind of truck is It?" asked l per cent, less coal than we did during the winter. And wo have almost as many men on the payroll. The trouble Is that they are takftig too many holidays. Anything seems to he an excuse for laying off work these days." It is known that the output, of the Gall. Collieries has dropped from 1300 tons a day to !)00, though very few of the men have gone to other work for the summer. The Drumheller mines arc practically all rdosed, and the miners arc going away, but few of them are drifting to the southern fields. The question is one which is causing the operators a lot of uneasiness. G.H. Legler AUCTIONEER NANTON, ALBERTA Book your sales with W. H.

Blackwood, Manager J To the Citizens of Lethbridge: In the future the garbage collection will be made with the auto truck recently purchased by the City. It is our intention to save the cost of the machine in the first year; out of the appropriation allowed for Scavenging. To ensure success it will be necessary that the Citizens themselves assist us by providing proper receptacles or garbage cans and place them at the rear of the lots, so that collectors nay dump them into the truck without loss of '/me It will be impossible to collect ashes or garbage not placed in garbage cans which can be picked up and dumped. It is necessary to give instructions to our garbage men to this effect, and no garden refuse will be collected on any account. Yours truly, A. M. GRACE, Commissioner of Public Works.
