Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 8, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta REV. DR. GORDON LIES NEW YORK Winnipeg Pastor Finds Gotham Not So Terribly Bad. .GIVES SOME ADVICE Says New. York la the Best Ted City in the World. MR. PRICE OFTEN EMPLOYED BY BQRDEN AND WHITNEY New Chairman of Compensation Board Has Had Many Comniis and, Say the Punsters, Always-Com- mands a Good Price. RCV. DR JAMES L. GOBDO of the Central Congr Church Is visiting New York and is preach! on Sundays at the Bioadway Tnbe Bacle. It is. Dr. Gordon h; been shrewdly observant in Ne Voik, for he lias got into the pape with sp'ine.-advlce to New Yorkers o wjmt they need and how to get it, j well as handing the city a word two of praise.- "In the first said Dr. Goi don, "It's'fjiiite clear that no couuti can criticize" America without makl: (in implied criticism of itself, fo America, and-New York in partlcula Is the "world in-miniature. "The'earliest and one of the stron est. impressions I got of New Yor was that it presented 'the greateb possitjlGcontrast to London In tw closely related Lon tioner .is" Ill-fed. and unhealthy, th Reo. J. LI Gordon. New Yorker Js well-fed and healthy You hate got Jo physical basis for 'and so when 'ou reflect, hpw closely our minds and our morals are related to our physical health, this matter of being well-fed becomes one of great im- portance. "I should say that New York Is the best fed city. In tho world. Some people talk to me of the expense, but although true on tho one hand that I can got an excellent din- ner for 53, It is equally true on the other hnnd that I can get for 25 cents food which will fill the same space and afford me the same amount of nourishment. Morals Not So Bad CtrF anyone cominjr to New York i were to judge Its moral condi- tion simply by what he reads in the newspapers he would arrive at number .of very, gloomy conclusions about the mbral condition of the city; but, for my. part, after going about n. and looking into things with some care, I find myself marvel- ling .that In-'-all the rush and hurry and competition and business and pleasure and success and failure, which go to make up the turmoil of this city's life, people are as good as they-are. I cannot spend my time bemoaning the sins of people; I'n; devoutly thankful .they're no worse. A A IVh MAN who -has; been much em- >ycd by bo'th tlje'Bordeh and Whitney Governments is the new chairman of 'tho Workmen's Compensation San: Price, K.C., of St.Thomaa. In fact, Mr. Price -has been c Ployed by both Iho samo la'-- estimated that since the Eordcn Government came into power its has. paid Mr. "Price about for his services in vari- ous capacities. His- salary as chair- man of the 000. As his punning friends will irobably say, is. a man who can command a good price." Here Is a of -what Mr. Price has dono-for tho two .Gov- ii'nments: Consolidation of Railway -Act, two at It, npt.yet.completed; Pay- ment probably Inquiry into labor Hots at Fortl William and Port Arthur, took abou e. month at per day and all ex pensos.

Ho was educated n the Public schools of St Thomas and at Strathroy, and St. Thomas Collegiate. Then he attended Trin- graduating1 with the gold medal in 1835. He was cal- ed to the Bar in the same year, and 'cut back to St Thomas to practice man's relationship -with man." Such an institution would afford a splen- did opportunity of helpfulness to the which are insplred'by moral and re- igious sentiments.

IE Duke Is ono of the most enthusiastic yachts- men in society, keeps up on his Corn- ish estates a quaint custom which, in an age that is fatal to picturesque i ritual, is very pleasing.
