Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 1, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRID6E HERALD PMNTING CO.. LTD. 0. D. AUSTIN. Editor Md Muager. W. JORDAN. SHpt. of Job Departaci saBSCRIPTION: In Advance - tLSO a year Otherwise - 2.00 a year ADVERTISING: Per Month - 1.00 Per Inch OUR POINT IF VIEW Kcop this over before you, "The ARricultural College for ,Lotbbrkigo." Ilosolutions do not go far townrd Rocuritig such an object. Tnlk H ' up. Public opinion is a powerful fnc-tor in such mnttei's ond public opinion is made, not bom. The announcement that R. L. Dor-tion. Interest in the higher plane of politics i.s increased �by the personality of great loaders. To see and hoor the man who is a leader in the political world creates a greater and a healthier interest in politics than can Iw gained by rea ' ing more or less garbled reports in tha partizan press. Mr. Borden is to spend the first week of October in Alberta. Doubtless Lethbridgie will be one of the I>laces chosen for one of the a*ldress-cs. We have, no doubt that crowds irrespective of party ties, will hoar the Corservwtive leader. Borden is an important mnn in Canadian politics, not because he has shown any great powers as a loader cither in parliantent or out of it, but because of the fact that he is the leader of one of the great polit -ical parties. Should the people of Canada in tlio next election decide on a change of rulers. Borden would tie the man in whose hands the affairs of the country would rest. On account of the position he holds and on account of the faint possibility of his holding a greater position. Borden is a tiinn in vihom I'ho [xioplo should takf a lively inteiw-s-t. Now, altogether, hoo.'^l tlw- ficii'. TtcnKDivbcr the happy feeling you have when .you assist a good cause, and give tlie fair a lift. The fair is the city's and districts greate.sit publicity mediiiui. If you believe in the city, believe also in the fair. I'heir interests are one. If it wore not so the Herald would hav0 told you. 4�M# GOSSIP By the ON THE SIDE Tattltr The nK'ntloii of l{. 1.,. lUmlon as loiuior of the Consorvalive party, imlurully the inomory of that greater dvieltnin Sir .lohn A.

The reporter whippee!�traiigbt and clean. And they know their busi ness. The Whitney candidate in DufTcrin was elected by only one hundred niti-jority over tho temperance candidate 'Vhe usual Conservative majority is from one to two thousand. The ti'io that swept Boss out of power is turn ing and will .soon overwhelm Whitney and his liquor policy. When Mr. August Woolf of the Spokane Chamber of Commerce said in his letter to the 25,000 Club that the Club should niim to build up the district rather than the city, he made a statemient that will beur the careful atudy of every one interestcsd in the work of building up Lethbridge. Every settler hrought to thia district increases the den>a'Kl for the products manufactured hei-o or brought in. One of the first questions asked by most industrial concerns in looking for a location is about the local demand. Nearly every manufacturer looks to tho dis -trict within easy reach to give him a safe market for his product. Mis trade heyond this district brings him his extra profit. It is true tha* some AianuffictUivrN are not particular about a loca^ market hut. sudi is not the case wiith tho great .majority. While 'perhaps not altsolutely true, Mr. Wolf's cxproHHlon, "Fill up the country and the uMy will take care of itself," contains a great deal of truth. 13dinonlon nm.v have nnituml piped (ram the Morinviile wells !U*e city. gas to ccreul gold. Ciriiiin on Hieir eight farms is be  ing raised under all sorts of cofidit-iuiis. Tho most notable crop is the 1200 acivs of volunteer crop on the portion of the famous Silver farm purchased by Mr. Daniel this spring. This I.and Ixjsides 700 acnes more owncf�u properly cultivated. He has one fieln>ittoe, in the preparation of the grouods for the Fair. The vholc place has been revolutionized. 1^ old grandstand has been moved liaclc fifty feet, and a new stand been erecttKl at the oast end in place of the bleachers which *vere tle-stroycd, Ki\ing ample acconunodat-ion for one thousand people. The grand stand is ventilated and well buiH throughout. Between the graivdstand and the track is a l>addock 30 feet, by 240 feet, fenced olY. A gen� of a judge's stand has been built and the track on each side'is fenced otV to keep the usual fool from getting on tho track or around the judge's stand. The old stand is moved near any ojien stalls arrai�gcd so that ladies and childixm may view the exhibits without going among them. A circular patklock has been erected for tlie judging of stock. A fifty foot square poultry house has loen crectsjd. It is light and airy and so constructed as to be useful for horse shows, etc. The whole inside of the grounds is fenced off. Special entrances are provided for autonwbiles, and every precaution has been taken to avoid ac-cile city. The, track is rapidly lieing put into condttion and when this energetic grounds committee is through no one but a chronic kicker wilt have any^jdverse coMiment. Tl�e importance of the Liothbridgc Fair can be judged by the following prizes ofTere�d by the I\?rcheron Society of America for the exhibits hero. When it is considenxl that this is the first fair in Western Canada thusi to lie recognized, the aimouncement bi'ttr.'! greater importance. For eoch of the following the IV'icheion Society olT^s a gold medal as first prize and a reserve ribbon [ ThcWorid of Sport, j acres iieiirly all of which is i-jiising |fts second prize:-Best American bred Ktallioii any age; Ijest AnMsrican bred marc any age; champion stallion, ojien class; champion mare, open class; best five stallions, open class; iBcst five mures, open class; for the |>bcst stud (stallion and four mares) any age, ownetl by the exhibttor, the Society offers a chan�|iion.ship cup, ^-alue $lO0 and aDiploma for first prize, a gold medal and trumen-ikality of J.

In April last the immigrants of British origin outnumbered those from Continental Europe by nine to one. Mr. Oliver's policy in respect to immigration can bo briefly stated. First, "immigrants of good character only are wanted. Immigration offlc -ials are forbidden to imss any person morally or physically unfit to make a good citizen ot this country. .Second, special instructions have bean sent out and ^cial inducement are given to encourage the imcnigra-tion of fiersons who are fitted and who intend to follow agricultural pursuits or railway construction In Canada.
