Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 25, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta �s&aei tiki** ABRIDGE HERALD ^:f milTING CO^ LTD. 0, D. AUSTIN, EtHsf ni MiMftr. W. JORDAN, Sett. *f Jo* DtparuMSt. SUBSCRIPTION: In A.dvano�  04.80 a year Otherwise ta.00 a year ADVERTISING; Per Month  04.00 Per Inch If! - . � � m POINT IF VIEW Isn't It about ttmo that wo had the express delivery In this city. The flerald hns agitated for this convenience time end again and the Board of Trade has also taken up the mat. ter but without any tesult, There is hardly a city in the country without express delivery. According to the evidence of some of the lumbermen before the committee of Inquiry ot Ottawa, they are having an awful tltne to keep from starvation. The next thing we know the public will havo to get up a bcncfU concert for thorn. The Liberal Government at Ottawa continues to dlnplay a strong preference to Great Drltaih and the British. The latest evidence of this spirit is found in the decision to reduce the postage on British newspapers and periodicals. It Is not unusual to hear tha charge mado that our public men are grafters. There arc sinners in every class,but we question if any country in the world is freer from corruption amongst its public men in high places than Canada. Dkl you ever notice that some of the best known of our public men, when their estates , arc probated, are shown to be comparatively poor. R. B. Bennett of Calgary, has beaa made a K.C., by the Alberta government, which being interpreted politically means "Killed Completely." It took George E. Foster nearly three hours to tell the House of Commons that the finding of the Insurance Coin mission touched him In a very sore spot. With Old Man Simpson in the Senate toe pages of Hansard would have a chance to become as bright as the columns of the Cranbrook Herald. It pays to booNt especially when you have one of the best cKlcs in the vest, like Lethbridge, to boost tor. Rev. Anna Shaw says woman suffrage is necessary to peace. Yes! to peace In the homo. When women have tho franchise election day should be fixed Jtistprior to Easter. Then there would be Utile difficulty in buying their votes with an exceptionally nice Easter hat. Vow Brunswick is following in Al- erta's footsteps by arranging to establish a government telephone system. Manitoba has a Minister of Tele- phones, but doesn't possess a government telephone system. Alberta asn't a Minister of Telephones, but It possesses a government telephone Ine In actual operation. AS far a? the Bell Telephone Co is concerned the man who is pushing tho government telephone lines la Alberta should hnve been named Crushing Instead of Cushlng. Do you see the point? If not wo can assure youthe Bell i>eoplc dof Any party that will take udvan  tftge of nnothcr'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 tho parties In the present coal mining troubles that are known to be taking advantage of the public's urgent need j In order to advance their own interests. There Is no doubt that the public is in urgent need of coal. Transportation* and manufacturing interests demand a great supply in order to meet tho requirements of the incoming population. Coal is a prime necessity. The miners claim that the opera -tors, taking advantage of the lapse of the old agreement on April 1st, practically broke the provisions of tho Conciliation Act by posting notices ot a reduction of wages to take effect on May 10th. Tho miners on tho other hnnd are breaking the spirit ot tho law If not its letter by quitting work which ns tar as the public is concerned amounts to a strike. There is a distinction but no difference. days Of these than the miner of a ten per cent, increase, or the operator of a slight decrease of expend I -ture. The public demands that the Oovemincn* step in to Investigate and conciliate, and that tho oppos -ing partie* observe and honestly assist In the finding of a settlement. Hon. W. himself ns a ers and the as it were. .....................

Wm. Iteld, day. That Is the only chance agreat J as president for the Lethbridge clcc many pwo|le have of riding with a,toral district in tho Alberta" Tern' It is practically certain that tho Lethbridge union will not be drawn Into the strike. It is tlmo many men are leaving the mine. Hut 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. Tho referendum vote of 117 to 8 in favor of a striko was an expression of opinion that if after the requirements of the Labor Conciliation Act had been fulfilled, tho Compnny did not grant certain concessions, they were prepared to strike. They have every confidence however, that the company, having honestly carried out their agreement go far, will meet their demands in a conciliatory manner. Tiie other mines did not break faith and strike to help them out last year and they arc not going to break faith to help out men who were 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 Government to settle their grievances. Such is the attitude ot the Lethbridge mines. Sherman's prediction that tho LolhbrUlge mlncswould bo idlo this week has lieen proved to he false. Wanted-Twenty-five live Industrial concerns in the City of Lethbridge to get out floats for May 9th. Two havo volunteered so far. The School Board did well when It decided to build an entirely new-school separated from tho old. Tho stylo of tho new wing is such that no building could bo attached to it and look liko a good building. A piece-work building is over an eyesore. Of all the committees of the City Council, the one with the biggest contract on its hands is the accommodation committee. Nothing short of extraordinary measures can meet tho situation. 1'ooplo by scores nnl hunhreds will shortly bo pouring Into this country and what can we do with them? The committee must get a big move on, and do something in keeping with the enormity ot its task. N'ext Wednesday being the first in the month brings the Board of Trade meeting. Every business man should make a special effort to attend. The Hoard is not doing all it should to holp 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 s� w hours on Wednesday evening. So our local contemporary forgot our existence-was nslecp as usual. An operator suggests that Sherman bo locked up and a miner suggests that Lindsey stay in Toronto. The Calgary News, however, ventures to suggest that both Sherman und Lindsey go to Peace Bivcr for a trip, so as to expedite tho settlement We would second tho proposal.

The Tatler dropped into tho office ot the Secretary of tho Board ot Trade the other day Just as he was reading a succession of interrogation marks. The writer was a plumlicr who hnd been cleaned out by tho San Francisco fire, ami what he wanted to know was: 1. Havo you a water and sanitary sewerage in your town? 2. How many inhabitants and how-many plumbing shops are there? J). What wages does a plumber, a machinist, or a blacksmith get? I. How far must I go to buy gov-eminent, railroad, or Hudson's Bay Co. londs? 5. Havo you many mosquitoes? fl. What is the average rent for a slx-roouicd cottage? 7. Do you know of a town where a man who is a good plumtor, machinist and blacksmith, is needed? The Tatler had the pleasure of conversing with a New Zealander tho other day. Mr. .John Mitchell of Auckland is not one of the Now '/inlanders of the type vc have in mind. New Zealand to most "people | is a land of ideals, a land where women suffrage, compulsory arbitration and perfect prohibition arc extant bvcauso there are no difficulties to prevent. But conversation with this Auckland oftV.iut gives us to understand that in order to attain these ideals or nearly to attain them, great difficulties hud to be fared ana overcome.

There is no doubt that tho Department of Labor is doing- its best to bring these things to a satisfactory settlement. Thero is lib -solutely no doubt that the public needs the coal.

As a source of entertainment as well as one of instruction, seldom ever has an attraction visited the city thai is tho equal of the glass blowers, who may bo aeon daily at their work in tho Opera House. Every afternoon and evening the place is crowded to the doors with interested spectators, and so ontranc Ing Is the work performed by tho two expert glass blowers that the longer one wants to stay, and is loathe to leave tho place of so much interest. Each and every visitor to tho place receives a beautiful souvenir, free, and on Saturday a big drawing will bo hold at which sov -eral very valuable prizes are awarded to lucky ticket holders. Perhaps tho most Interesting part of tho glass blowing is tho demon titration made of tho olastlcity ot glass. An inch ot tubular glum i� heated, tho blowor places tho oihor end to his mouth and blows tb*ough tho tubo vith tho result that the small piece of heatod gloss la stretched out a distance of fully four toot, when oxploding it falls to the floor in millions ot fragments as fine as silk. This demonstration is not always successful on account of tho atmos phoro which at times is mora dense than at others. It also takes an on ormous lung power to por form tho foot successfully. Another demonstra tion which In itself is well worth going to see is tho spinning ot glass around a spinning wheel. So thin is this skoln of silk that it can scar coly bo perceived by the naked eye as it is drawn out of the common glass and wound around the wheel as fast as tho operator can 'turn the handle It was out of the glass spun in this manner that tho dross was made which is on exhibition in tho same room whoro tho glass blowers oper ate.
