Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 18, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta iRIDGt HERALD PRINTING CO., LTD. .AUSTIN, BMsr asd Mssafer. JOWAN, S�st. � J*� DcMrtmit.

Wo a good stnrt (or a groat city and we want to hustle it along. A hustling, intelligent, resourceful pub->, Jlclty commissioner is an urgent ^Bbeeaaity. Lot us get out after busi-aesi and not merely wait for, it to h,2om� to ua. ha had not been intoxicate! ha would have been olive today. A Stettlor paper displays a very selfish disposition in expressing tie  light at the news that the C. P. It. will not extend Its line enst from thoro this year. Of course It looks good to Stettler because such a decision means that no town would nrlse east of it to rob its merchants of trade. But what of the settlors who have gone into that country, seventy and a hundred utiles from Stctllcr, under the Impression that tlicy were going to have a railroad Immediately? It is worth noting that the late Speaker of tho Ontario legislature, Hon. J. W. St. John, and his successor, Thos. Crawford, M.P.P., rank high as temperance advocates. Mr, Crawford is a big man nml so was Mr. St. John, each of thorn weigh  ing over two hundred pounds. Seeding starts in the south coun -try whilo sleighing is still good in the north. Southern Alberta is the best spot on this good earth.  I in royal style tho first anniversary ' ^ of its cltyhood, The Mayor will proclaim a civic holiday. The City jit Is ism mratv^iirrfi-i ill be open,to all Alberta. A comprehensive procession wtll be tho morning feature; games and sports will occupy tho attention in the afternoon, while a brilliant flroworks display and a Ixvnquot will probnbly teriulunts the day's proceedings. This Is a matter in which every oltuten should take an active inter -est. Such events as these stir up ono's civic pride. Get ready for it. Fix up your own part of the city, paint your house if it needs it, repair your fence, clean up your yard. Clot out your flags and other decorations. Celebrate In royal Btyto and start in early to get ready. Stand By Oliver. the Land Grabbers Who Are Opposing Mis New Lands Act. Sit } A word to farmers. In the selection of Meed grain, tor your own sokes and for the sake of tho reputation of �the country gut pure seed. The Cnn-� adlan West lost twenty million dol-4ara teat year because of foul seed. The freight rates, threshing rates, cost of bugging and hauling arc just as great on weed seed ns on Alberta Red No. 1. The best is the cheapest. One effort for prevention is worth a wore to overcome an evil. It is easier far to keep weeds out of your Jand than to get them out if they ' get- a st rt. Savo your time and money arid mako your reputation for being a feood farmor, by being particular on th;s point. The United States government has given J. J. II.II permission to raise 100,000,000 In bonds. Our publicity ' coaun.sslonor should keep before his mind the posaibiHtiea of Southern Al erte. Jim Hill can do a lot with sixty million. Hut we have no pub  llcliy commissioner! Tho Thaw Jury has disagreed. Ev  dently n couple of tho Jury couldn't be bought. Thaw will he crasy now, if he never was before. The administration of tho Allerta government telephone system could not be in better hands limit those of lion. W. H. etching. lie is a bust-no. k man from the ground- up. He believes in conducting his department so it will bo in the best interests of tho people TheToronto Globe worshipped tho ground Clifford Sifton v-alkod on, but it seems to delight to nuiko the path of Frank Oliver as difficult as possible. The Globe should got in touch with the sentiments of western Canudu. If it docs it will find that Oliver represents the true sen-! timcnts of the west and knows a good more about western conditions than Clifford Sifton over did. In the death of Dr. W. H monti, the Habitant poet, loses not only one of her most 11-l.strious literary man, but also one of her strongest nation- builders, with his keen appreciation of the French-Canadian character so beau -tifully expressed in hia poems, he has gl\en to the English speaking Canadians a deeper and truer insight into the real character of their French fellow-citizens.' On the other hand, the pool Ij of whom he wrote almost idoliw him. Perhaps no in n with the exception of Sir Wii -frlil Laurler, has done mora to con-olid lie the hitherto conflicting races Mum has Dr. Drummond. Canada in . .ins a poet and a statesman. Justice Langloy sounded a most unpopular note when he prophesied Canadian Independence. Doubtless Canada will lie the dominant portion of ihp British Empire some day but an Independence by sovorunce, never. The future of Britain and Canada will be worked out as ono. The pirns of the trip the American magazine writers ore taking call for their spending a month in tho West on the lines from Winnipeg to Calgary to Edmonton and back. Our Board of Trade should take Imsned  late action to have these writers, whose publications are read by millions, come to Lothbridge. No time can be wasted. Immediate action is necessary, if this portion of Allierta is to receive its share of publicity from this tour of the American Journalists. Is there any serious objection to our having one of the watering carts on the streots those days.' Tho dust is fierce at times, especially where excavations for bu I Id logs or water works are near. A wet stroet would catch the dust. A Rod Deer farmer makes the *;.uu incut that tho product of soven cows yielded him a revenuo of $80 a month- Tills proves again that mixed farming pays. Lothbrldgo district fanners should not confine their attention to grain growing. Trobably the fact thnt ho was not made Minister of the Interior Is wor-jrylng Thomas Green way more than I the new lands regulations. He is Drum- [simply trying to be nasty Canada � Tho Culgnry papers are working themmlvcs very hard trying tocroate a sectional strife between the north nnd the south over the locution of the provincial university. The Al bertan on Monday replies to our re murks of last week in this wise: "The Lothbridge Herald is another paiier which is epiile satis-fled with the treatment which tho south has received from tho Alberta Government and refers to tho Normal school nt'id two bridges which Calgary has recoivod also a registry office and thirty-three thousand dollars for a court house. The two bridges wore absolutely necessary, and transportation could not have liccn maintained without them. Tho registry office and the court houso were hero liefore tho province of Allierta, and all that the Alberta administration has dono is not to take them away, for which wo are vory thankful. Calgary is larger thun Edmonton and Stratbcona put togother, yet Edmonton has received in ordinary assistance more than Calgary oven with the Normal school, and that is not counting tho capital, which is groator than all else combined, and tho university which is the next Important institution in tho gift of the province. "Tho Lethbridgo Herald refers to favors that tho south has re-cnivod but overlooks what is probably tho most Important, which was tho appointment of tho proprietor of tho Lothbridge Hcr^ aid to un important position in tho premier's department In Edmonton, which doubtless explains tho remarkable position taken by his paper." Tho former part of this remarkable article in no wise rofutos tho arguments put forth In Justification of tho government's course, but is tho same thrcadbaro plea that Calgary continually puts lorth, viz.: "We want a lot because we are bis." In tho latter part, our contemporary descends from folly to meanness in practically saying that our sup- The toirlblo frequency of railway accidents during the past months calls for careful investigation. Almost invariably tho cause is laid to a broken rail. This may be the roal cause or it may not. If it is, there is something wrong with tho manufacture of these rails. Are they tested thoroughly t>cfore lives and property are risked upon their strength and endurance? If they arc, whythis frequency of broken rails? If they are not, why not? Is not the hon eaty of a steel rail of as much consequence as the honesty of a tin of beef, or a barrel of apples? Yet these arc subject to Inspection. If the excuse of broken rails is not tho real cause of tho accidents, what is? Tho most searching investigation should be given these accidents. Those familiar with railroad life know that it is no uncommon thing for an engineer to sleep on duty and allow the fireman to fulfil as best he can tho duties of both. Why Is this? Is It because they are deliberately shirking or is it because their hours of labor are beyond human endur  aneo? It is no uncommon thing tor section foremen to apply for new ties and now steel and be refused. Kotten ties cannot be bolstered up to stand the weight of present day traffic. Old steel cannot be repaired. An abundance of spikes even in solid ties cannot appreciably strengthen the rails. What then shall be done? Is Ithe public willing to chance their lives and their property, "freight shipped st owner's risk," under such circumstances? Aro they satisfied with a track inspection such as a road -muster can glv0 by riding on theback of a train once in a while? This loug continued chapter of ac cidenta calls for inspection by others than those whose policy it Is to en sure that degree of safety thnt will not interfere with the dividends and tho increase in tho value of the stock Tho situation seems to -call for Government Inspection. Why should not the Government havo track and rolling stock inspectors on tho railroads A defoctivo engine caused the loss of a life at Macleod a few weeks ago. A broken rail is tho reason given for tho recent disaster at Chaplcou. And so the list might bo extended, of bad culverts causing wash-outs, of ovor-workod employees asleep on duty, of section men not being supplied with rails, plates, ties and ballast. This is a matter, of vital interest to the public and demands that action bo taken by those to whom the public wolfare has been entrusted. An Act to ba Enforced, The Montreal Herald in discussing the Labour Conciliation Act speaks as follows:- if Mr. Lcnvieux's position upon the (|Ui>stlon of prosecutions under the goncral-there Is i a gap In that legislation which will hose to be filled In before it can be tvlied on to IfchivA'o the prime object for which It was passed. The Loin-I L'UX legislation, as we have pointed out ever since It was introduced, has Us entire ralBon d'etre in the public interests which are involved in cor  tain industries and which suffer by their suspension. It was not passed for the protection of either or both of tho pnrtios to the labor-nnd-cnp -ital relation. ritlinntoly, it leaves both of those parties, unpi-otoctdnnd unrestricted, to the issues of Indus -tries. But it does assert a right of the people as a whole, of tho Innocent public unaffected by questions at issue but gravoly affected by the struggle itself, to impose certain con dltions that must bo observed before the resort to hostilities-conditions .which are likely In most cases to ob viotc tho hostilities themselves. That right of tho public was given by Mr. Lcmioux and was accepted by the entire Parliament, which adopt -ed, the legislation practically without formal opposition, as the basis of Its logic. But now wo find that the Act Is ineffective except upon in- Officc-Ott Block Phone W7 (From the Winnipeg Tribune.) A member of Parliament at Ottawa and one of the keenest observers and new Conciliation Act which most independent of tho lot, writing My boars his name is correct to a friend In Winnipeg, speaks as follows with reference to lion. Frank Oliver and his land bill, that is being sidetracked for the present ses  sion: We expect to get through In two weeks' time. Oliver's Land bill, will have to stand over until next year; in tho meantime people will be ablo to discuss it and form an opinion about it. The greatest opposition to it appears to come from certain parties (you know them) who do not like to see this big tract of. land disposed of to tho settlers; they would rather got it themselves and then dispense it out to the settlors at $15.00 to 120.00 an acre. As \ long as the land is kept by tho Government intact, they havo a chancn. Ministers may come and ministers may go, and the sun of prosperity may shine again, but if this bill woro to become law their hopes would vanish. Do not pass this beastly act, Keep, oh keep, tho land Intact. True, our, powor is on tho wane, Out we may wander back again. I believe Frank Oliver Is, according to his lights, doing his best for tho settlers. He may not be nn astute politician of the manipulating kind, but I am certain he is honest, and ho ought to bo upheld and assisted. Ho has had a hard row to hoc. As you know, ho has not been put -ting as much swill Into the trough ns he might, and In consequence the hungry swine begin to howl. , , , ..,_,,i,, ,, �. u ,. *.. �� , ,. 1 whereby the Federal authorities, In We believe with the correspondent ",v ^ f 4t__ ______, _4 ,______,___ that Mr. Oliver is doing his bost to give the country the benefit of an honest administration of his great department.

Cory, Methodist probationer on Lothbridge Second mission, had boon drowned in the Old Man River. Tho ford is vory dangerous if not well known and Mr. Cory getting on tbo edge of thoshoal was tipped out of his cart. His foot however caught, preventing him from swimming to tho shore which was only about thirty feet distant. Secur ing a short rope, a gallant half breed, Alox Suckeman mad* s bravo though futile attempt to rescue the drowning man. Benumbed by the chilly water, and utterly exhausted, but with a bright smilo and a word of cheer, Mr. Oory laid down his life in the work of preaching tho gospel In this now West. On Saturday afternoon the body was recovered and on Sunday night brought to Lothbridge by Bev. W.A Lewis of MacLeod. On Monday an impressive service was held in Won-ioy Church in which parts were tak en by lie v. W. A, Lewis of Macleod Rev. O. A. Kettyls of Macleod Sputh Rsv.

Tho sadness of the event 4s aug men ted by facta gleamed from letters that were in the office for the dis cased from his homo in London, Eng land. One was from his widowed mother lulling of plans for. tho send ing of his fourteen year old brother to him. Another dated a few day later from a brother told of tho mother's instantaneous accidental death. Each was.mercifully spared the news of tin other's decease, Being an intimate personal frlond of the deceased, the Herald's editor knew him to be a man in every sense of the word, an earnest, de voted Christian, an indefatigable worker, ami one who. followed dill -- | gently in tho footsteps of the Mas On May 0th the eity will celebrate ter whose Ootpei he preached. the name of the people at largewhom this legislation is designed to pro  tcct, may treat them as crimes, and stop them as crimes, and punishthem as crimes, unless a private person can be found to come forward nnd take the onus of prosecution. Now we have no sympathy with those Amcricanlzcrs of our polity who would like to turn the Govern -mcnt of Canada into a hired attorney for the prosecution of personal grievances. Uut it does not seem necessary that the Government should undertake the enforcement of laws In which the public ilttercstmny be so grout, and the private interest so little, as Is the case with the Conciliation Act. Surely tho purpose of that Act is not fulfilled If (as mny very easily happen) both sides  the dispute decide that they do not want to lie in vest! gated and would rather go right ahead and fight, leaving the Hcgistrnr of the lAcl. and the Minister of Ijihour, to sit powerless in their offices while ! the public is robbed of its transportation facilities, its light, Its fuel or its sources of power.
