Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 26, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta 1; EfHlRIDGE HERALD ^ ^ i:' 'AirSOV 4 BUCK AN AK T-l Publishers k SI MESON ' i. W. A. BUCHANAN gttBSCRIPTION: Advaaca 60 a year iStherwlao - 2.00 a year i�>n* ought to be �ible to get thoir Uppers and be at n coucort on fciujo. -Nothing will tliaa the no Wis pto are never asylum. tickle Rockfcll�r more that 'iMild'headed poo-found in a goal or K ADVERTISING. Her Month - 91.00 Per Inch OFF THE TRACK. It Malcolm Macknzic, M. L. A., of Macleod. is corrwjtly roponwf, he did Ijebhbridge a decided injustice in some conwnenfs ho made on our bill seeking a charter as a city. Tlic report says Medicine Hat mwde the first application for a charter, and tothbridg* followod suit, iniplyiitg iikAt this town oitl.y made tilic uppli-Q�tiou, in oi'der not to allow the llat to get eihead of. us. �AjMr. Mackenzie's whole argument is jrrecked iiy the fact 'thttt Lothbridge Vras the first place to sock a charter. Medicine Hat took up 't>hc imattcr later, and its solicitor came Iteixj to look over the charter propaix^d by tebhbrjdge's town solicitor. Mr. Mackenzie should be sure of bis grouml before he moki-s .iiisino-'tions in the Legislature. INVITE THEN TO COME. _ * The nieinbers of the Legislature in all likelihood will make a trip to the south country this sximmcr or fall, likely in tiie fall, when the sugar beet factory wt nnymond is op-ierating. This trip will enable tlHjm to see our thriving 'town, and the Town Council and Board of Tratle should write away at once and invite the liegi�lators to visit us, if they iivake a trip to Baymond. It will pay the members to sec all of Alberta. A good, many of them know little about this section, and a trip down here will enlighten them on our resources and activity. As a bonus to the beet sugar Industry is a matter for early eonsrd-erabion by the Legislature, a visit ,to the factory at llaymond is' necessary in order to inform the members of Parliament on 'the amount of money investod in this business and the wonderful opportunities it oEters �the fanocr to enrioh the soil as well ^'s his pockets with the {iroiluotion .of sugar beots. By all means let us send aa enthusiastic invitafion to the L�g-islature to paj- our district a visit. When they come down we will guarantee them a right royal welcome. 'l'J�'jr� are some great graftei-s in Yankee 'dyiu. Huffalo is the scene o-f fine of tilie greatest scandals of the age. A cemetery was sold to the L'. a, (jowjrnnient lor an nruiory. A man was given 1.5 for every corpse removL'U. it was estiuial�eit in eaisli row, 38,600; 89 rows, Itt pieces in each row, 1,408; raws,. 30 pieces'in each row, 5,040; 89 rows, 6 pieces iu each row, 534; 80 rows, tt pieces in each row, 480; total, 41,003. Vottrs etc., W. A. Mann." Can't some of our lardies lYe�t this record. If so, let us know, for we would like nothing better resei{t this portion of tlte west is without railroad competition, and we all know that competition amongst railroads is stimulating and helpful, as instance the case of �>d-inonton, where the entrance of the C. N. R. brought down Irieght rates and enabled the merchants there to sell their goods far more cheaply, .so that the entire community derived �the benefit. The Hill line has an opportunity to open a givat section of the country between "the Rockies and Winni-.pog. If it does this country will soon be rapidly settled where it is now bare prairie. Sown eajft, some of the paiJers fear Hill's line will divert tmdo to the Unibud iStattes. We ttavc no foar of that. The merchants here wiil be loyal to Camadia'n interests, and if they order their goods Bhipi*ed in over the new road, that does not mean they will come from American points. As it is even now, ahip-mbnts are mode from Winnipeg over 'the Great Northern 'to Lothbridge, and the same will be the case when J. J. Hill buiWs a groat transcontinental line. Competition is thu life of trade, and we must buw railroad coinijoti-tion bom. H will not �hurt C'ana'dian interests a 'bit. On the otlinitoba would 'begin the movement of reform. At the present 'time parties were ^jut 'in power by the money of cor|)orations, and that involved 'the politioi'on in a course of action which spelled ftie neglect of ipublic interests at the of corporation interests. To comtwt 'this state of things was the paramount reason that kept him in political Ufe." A man with Mr. Brown's ambitions is needed iit political life. Corruption of ail sorts must be stamped out' if wc want Canaaa to stand iyo-fore the w'orld as a clean couutrv. The interests of the people should always be considered paramount. Corporations should receive their due but not one whit more. Some public men may say tihis does not pay but tiie experience of Folk, in Missouri^ La FoUette in Wisconsin, Jerome in New York, and Wieaver in Philadelphiia, sliows that the people will always stand 'by the man who fights corporations and corrupti'On Mr. Uroun's attitude in Manitoba deserves the loyal support of the people of that province. Sing, and tiho world's harmonious. Grumble, and things go wrong, .'Vnd all the time You are out of rhyme W'ith the busy, hustling throng. Kick, and there's trouble brewing. Whistle, and life is gay, And the worid's in tune Like a day in June, .Vml the clouds all melt away. Shniile, uml the vorW shniites niit you; Laugh, und the vorkl vill roar; Howl, und the vorkl vill leaf you L'nd't nefor come back no more; For all of us couldn't poeen handsome. Nor all of us vear goot clothes; But a shinile vas not expensive, Und covers a ^�orld of woes. -Soleotdd. EDITORIAL NOTHS. Keep a 'boosting. ttliy lias'nt Lethbridgc a mounted mfantry corps. The 16th Wght Horse, with beadqtUtrters at Calgary, has several companies in the south country, 'but none here. A military training would be a first-rate thing for some erf our young men. It ought to be easy to form a regiment in this district, with .eom-panies ait i'incher Creek, Macleod, Cardston and here. We have plenty of good horsonion, and the military experience woukl Ijc of i'Destimablc value. These rains will be as welcome as gold dollars to the farmers. That additional grant from the Town Council will prove a sploiKlid stimulant lor the Board of Trade. Watch Lethbridgc grow when the Work on the C. P. �. improvements starts. J Oamida proved its friondli'uess to tJM United States in a substantial way when It voted *100,000 to the San Francisco ^puflerers.

The concert'was lumounoed to start but ron-to Saturday Night proves that in the foilowing incident which it relates: "When Hon. U. W.

"With tornadoes i'n Texas and eruptions from Vesuvius, wo may feel reconciled to the dust storms sweeping over Toronto." So says the Toronto Globe, and to the wbini'ng people here 'there ought to be some consolation in the news that Toronto has du.'�t storms. To hear some folks talk, one would think the oast knew not dust or wind. Oh�ror up, men who have become bald. A scientist says 'baW-hoaded criminals' are' unknown.

That made no difference to Sir John when he came up to Smith, )i as we will coiM him, he cxciaimed, "Well, how are you Mr. Smith,"v�nd Smith was fla'obcrgosted.
