Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 29, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday,' April 29, 1013 BRIDGE DAILY HERALD eiTABLISHED' DBcEM��niferl It is something of a sad reflection to realiEe that in coun-'{.'�'�.'tipies where adult suffrage does not prevail thwe l^ave been stren-" ;ous efforts made to obtain for each man, as far as possible, the eatest privilege to which a citizen is entitled, and yet, in this ^aaddiktrict'there are thbse ^ho have so.Kghtly regarded it. Eii^y^ recently we had ithe^:^^ in Belgium, where men ;.^e;eamestly striving to acquire tl^at wM"ch their western bro-^|ffi^s:haY^ obtained without a^ ^ ' ,Thereiis''evi^^%|thy d^layj^SSuxo^whoiesome, and the laxity in interest is %�!!(^fe-jn ke^m^|;^^Y^ democracy. Is it "''"'^^''^at'mai/-do-not ;pme, ^ so cheaply in their ds aIcbmp.arfedjwith'iOther nations?' If so, they have only to -�n th^ attention to the arduous struggles which history re-,^^,in^jt^at];Bn^ain^.^ lands. In so doing they can- ii but,r&g&dJ',me^prlvUe^e they possess as one which, though i^tlv=woti^non^"'tti6 les's' places them in an enviable position. mnglfimsJdistinction^^^;^^^ to the bcca- PBt';7vheia�ffieTopp^ \  ' I^The fact of; �,& many votes being unpolled likewise points to ' ''ant ot "efllci6ncy in both politioal organizations. It remans them -to heed vthe present eicample. One-third of the total Iffiag'Strength unpolled is^-a matter which calls for serious con-iplation. , HOMELBSSSONS I'^HE SUBJECT of "Home Lesaops" is one wliich comes up per-l^odically for discussion.

This was the justification for; tHe^nginal calling into jfTtiy of the closure as put into use in the flrifigh House of Conimbnsii But at Ottawa things cannot be said to be'iS[o at the present;Juncr lure. ' i^v. � . The federal parliament is dealina^jvith a questioi/,. whichj witliout proper authority, tlie goveTnment has assumed is the wish of the majority of the Canadian'pepple. But this is a Matter in which,the electors have not bee!tcpjt^ariIy"consulM-- So fur as the wishes of the electorate goiany'critefion for forming judgment ns to the kind of navalpolicy-which would appeal to the majority, is �fforded by the proceWdifaijgS in the I)arliament of 1909. The Laurier policy was thdn accepted by both political parties. Now the government is endeavoring to force tlirough a policy which, although it meets with the approval of the majority of the House, cannot under the circumstances be legitimately said to be the pohcy acceptable to-the majority of Canadian people. .A. common-ploce. and yet a common-sense, view of the situation is that of Mr. E.T. Congdon, K.C., a former M. P. for the Yukon. It was thus expressed: When men went into a game they did so imder an iofpartial rpferee, and under certain rules, but Mr. Borden had said: "Let's stop the game while we change the rules. We're getting the worst of the game, and we want the rules altered." Who is there who believes in fair play who will disagree with this sizing up of the situation? 'T'he'gffvernment is npiplay-ing the game on generally accepted principles, but with, the spirit which characterized Old Noll is endeavoring to arbitrarily push forward a policy by forpe majeure, ignoring the only precedure which jt-eason and fair play dictate.

P.O.Box 1979 Phone 1291 OUR POINT- OF VIEW SoiTthern Alberta has established a seeding recor^ again this year. As usual. Here's hoping the harvest follows suit. -' The get-rich-cheque artist has visited Weyburn. That should, weld another bond between Lethbridge and Wej'burn, but hardly such a welcome one as the Lethbridge-Weybum line will be. R. B. Bennett discovered two more cases of "gross partizan-ship" dm-ing his 12 hours' stay in Macleod. What would he have found had he gone to Cardston? Solve for X. The city engineer is looking for a recipe for killing the bugs that infest Henderson Park lake to the detriment of the swimmers. We rxiight suggest a small stream of Belly River water as it issues from the kitchen tap about high water season. The mayor suggests fish for the park lake. Won't Leth-bridge boosters have a great time telling fish stories when the finny specimens make their appearartc^? Thdt Nelson'fish that grunts like a pig will have to take to th backwoods swamps. ' ' Two years ago Lethbridge sold 4% per cent, bonds for 98%. This'*year it sells 5 pep;cents for 89%. 'The;men holding the "stringsidf the. world's ;inoneyi; bags have spoken and the munici-pahties have bowed to the in'evitable. ' i HisvMajeaty King George's subjects all oyer* the Dominion will hear ^ifith'delight of his intended visit to Canada. After the paA-ing of the way by H. R. PI. the Duke of Connaughti King George rufty; expect the most warm heai'ted kind' of welcome from his .subjects on this side of the pond. Tlie proposed visit is well timed.' Two years ago one could get 98% cents out of a dollar borrowed." Two years ago one could buy a respectable cut-of steak for the 98% cents. How much steak would one get for the 89%" cents one gets now for the doUar bond? If the cost of living and the cost of money keeps going up, we will be talking like millionaires in a few years while transacting ordinary business.- - The miners of district No. 18 will celebrate in Lethbridge on ThurSdayi It is Up to the people of this great mining" centre to turn out and show them we appreciate their presence. The mining industry has done nobly by Lethbridge during the past three years. Let us take off .our hats'and yell for the men who do the work in the coal camps. . . , Yesterday was declaration day in connection 'with the recent provincial elections. It declared, rather forcibly that Prpmier Sifton's majority is a gQod one, and incidentally'that Albeda'has given him a mandate, to ask Premier Borden |o turn oVetr the province's |^atural resources. If the federal Premieiiiturns a dieaf ear on the call, the people of Alberta will know what ^to tb'ink of him. - ' ' . Considering the reports of the reception of Edmonton's bond issue on the London market, il. does not appear that the city fatliers acted unwisely yesterday, in accepting thf; Woo4 Guiidy Compaily's offer. With most of the western cities "beggars-cannot afford to be choosers." However, the financial cloud hovering over tills, city apparently has a silver lining, and'it> seems reasonable to expect that normal conditions will jirey^U"soon again. Like every other city in the west, Lethbridge wasT caught in the middle of a financial landslide with a big summer^s-work well under way.
