Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 25, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta 1 m 9 THBRID6B HERALD nnmiiiG c(Mm a ft. AUSnN, EMM- ai4 Muigtr. W. JOtDAN. Sapt. tt Jok DtpirtMat SUBSCRIPTION: ta A.dvano�  91.50 a year iOtlMnJriM ia-Ob a sraar Month ABVCRTISINO: . i;oo Per Inch Isn't it about tlmo that we had the oxpresa delivery In this city. The n�rald hiis agitated for this convenient tinw and again and the Board of Trade has also taken up the mat. ter but without any tesult. There ia hardly a city in the c3untry without expreas delivery. According to the evidence of some of the lumljernwn before the committee of inquiry at Ottawa, they are having an awful time to keep from starvation. The next thing we know the public will have to get up a benefit concert for them. phones, btit doesn't possess a gov-enmtent telephone system. Alberta aen't * Minister of Telephones, but It possessce a government telephone ine in actual operation. As far n? the Bell Tcluphonc Co is concerned the man who is pushing the government telephone lines ie Alberta should have been named Crushing instead of Gushing. Do you see the point? If not we can assure youthe Bell people dof Any party that will take advan -tage of another's absolute necessity to further his own interests has no claim- upon anybody's sympathy or support. The weight of public opinion will be totally against the part-I in the present coal nsining troubles that are known to bo taking advantage of the public's urgent need in order to advance their own interests. There is no doubt that the public is in urgent need of coal. Transpor-tation� and manufacturing interests demand a great supply in order to meet the requirements of the incoming population. Coal is a prime neceaaHy. The Lilferal Government at Ottawa continues to display a strong preference to Great Britain and the British. The latest evidence of thia apir-it ia found in the decision to reduce the postage on British newspapers �Bd periodicala. It ia not unusual to hear the charge made that our public men are grafters. There are sinners in every class.but we question if any countrj-in the world is freer from corruption . amongst its public men in high places than Canada. Vid you ever notice that some of the best known of our public men, when their' estates are probated, are shown to be com* parutively poor. B. B. Bennett of Calgary, has beaa made a K.C., by the Alberta government, whi^h being interpreted politically means "Killed Completely." It took Oedr^e C Foster nearly three hdurs to tell the Bowie of Commona tliat the finding of the In-aurance Cd&naiMibn tdiiehed 'hfim In a very sdra1q>ot.

It pkys to boost especliilly when you have one of the beat cities in tlie v-eat. 'like 1�thbrirta'a footsteps by arranging to establish a government telephone system. The miners claim thot the opera -tors, taking advantage of the lapse of the old agreement on April 1st, practically broke the provisions of the Conciliation Act by posting notices of a reduction of wages to take effect on May 10th. The miners on the other hand are breaking the spirit of the law if not its letter by quitting work which as far as the public is concerned amounts to a strike. 'I'hero is a distinction but no difference. It is practically certain that the Lethbridge union will not be drawn into the strike. It is time many men are leaving the mine. But in nearly every case, it is to go on to their ranches or to earn more money at other lines of work in the city. The referendum vote of 117 to 8 in favor of a strike was an expression of opinion that if after the requirements of the Ijabor Conciliation Act had been fulfilled, the Company did not grant certain conces.sions, they were prepared to strike. They have every confidence however, that the company, having honestly carried out their agreement so far, will meet their demands in a conciliatorj' manlier. The other mines did not break faith and strike to help them out last year i^nd they are not going to bireak faith to help out men who w'ere easy enough to be led into a secret agreement, or who will strike in the face of the provisions of the Conciliation Act and the efforts of the Oovemment to settle their grievances. Such is the attitude of the Lethbridge mines. Sherman's prediction that the Lethbridge mineswould be idle this week has been proved to he false. days bt them thVn the miner of a ten per cent, increase, or the operator of a slight decrease of expendi -ture. The public demands that the Government step In to Im'estigate :ind conciliate, and that the oppos -ing partiea observe the,law and honestly assist in the finding of a settlement. Hon. W. H. Cushing has offered himaelt as a buffer between the miners and the operators, a "cushion" as it were. Wanted-TWenty-five live industrial concerns in the City of Lethbridge to get out floats for May 9th. Two have volunteered so far. The School Board did well �-hcn it decided to build an entirely new school separated from the old.

The Tatler dropped into the office of the Secretary of the Board of Trade the other day just as he was reading a succession of interrogation marks. The writer was a plunvlicr who had been cl'CHihcd out by the San Francisco Arc, and what he wanted to know was: 1. Have you a water and sanitary seqcrage in your town? 2. How ntany inhabitants and hotw many plumbing shops are there? 3. What wages does a plumber, a machinist, or a blacksmith get? 4. How far must 1 go to buy government, railroad, or Hudson's Bay Co. lands? 3. Have you many mosquitoes? 6. What is the average rent for a six-roomed cottage? 7. Do you know of a town where a man who is a good plumber, machinist and blacksmith, is needed? What's in a name?

Nothing short of extraordinary measures can meet the sittmtion. People by scores anl hunhrcds will shortly be pouring into this country and what can we lio with them? The committee must got a big move on, and do something in keeping with the enor-.mity of its task. Ne.xt Wednesday being the first in the month brings the Board of Trade meeting. E^ery business man should make a s|iecial effort to attend. The Board is not doing all it should to help on the city. The matter of a publicity commissioner must be at -tended to without delay. Delays are expensive at this stage of the city's life. Individual Interests should give place to public interest for a hours on Wednesday evening.

There is no doubt that the operators have matters to adjuat. There is no doubt that the Department of Labor is doing- its best to bring these things to a satisfactory settlement. There is ab -aolutely no doubt that the public needs the coal. With the miners working to their full capacity there would not be too much coal for the immediate needs. Settlers coming in must hgve their elTects and their ions demand cement, brick and lumber. Last year's crop of wheat is building material. Building oiicrat-not yet marketed. The public has We are in receipt of the Lamont Weekly Times, Vol. 1, No. 2, a clean, bright little sheet with the proper newspaper spirit in every line. The Tatler had the plcosure of conversing with a New Zealander the other day. Mr. John Mitchell of Auckland is not one of the Now iZeatanders of the type vc have in mind. New Zealand to most "^people The Calgary News, However, ven- jg ^ j^^j iUeals. a land where wo-tures to suggest that both Sherman suffrage, compulsory "arbitration perfect prohibition are extant because there are no ditilcultiGS to prevent. But conversation with this Auckland ofilniul gives us to understand that in order to attain these ideals or nearly to attain them, great diiBcultics had to be faced and overcome. New Zealand is noe theoretical, but practical and common-sense. One of the Calgary papers waa tooting a little the other day on the score that counting the automobiles in the city and those on the ^way, tltcre were forty-five cars in their city, and seemed to think jt,.-waa a big Ihing, almost as big as the university. But Lethbridge, according to population, which the neighboring city loves to dwell upon, has them skinned to death on the automobile proposition. There are now ten in the city and five more will arrive in a few days, making fifteen in all. In proportion to population, Cal  gary would have at this rate, about seventy. And what is more, we ara going to have an automobile factory in a few weeks and an up-to-date auto livery. Money to k� Spent in Alberta On Friday the supplementary estimates were presented to parliament Among the expenditures arranged for ara $3,000 for fitting up the Calgary Land office; $80,000 additional for Edmonton public buildings; $3,688 to finish payment ^on Red Deer Court House; $148.00 for salaries of additional post office inspectors and 'clerks; $30,000 for increase of sal -ary of Calgary post office staff; $12,-000 for the Eidmonton post office staff; $59,000 for waterworks, sewerage and roads in Banff park; $13, 200 and $8,000 revote for improvement of the Old Man River at MacLeod.

Another demonstration which In itself ia well worth going to aee is the apinning of glaaa around a spinning wheel.
