Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 9, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta 1*4 lAjjuAiiD S'MPSON A tTCJCHANAN Publishers P., StMPSON VV. A. MJCHANAN SUBSCRIPTION: n Adv*aoe  1BO a year O herwiae  �2.00 a year ADVERTISING; Per Month - 1.00 Per Inch USE THEM WELL The prtftc Itsi for the Curdalott fair came to hand this week. Jt wiis gotten tip by the Star and is ii fine sample of the work turned out at that bright newspaper office. The Medicine lint News is possessed ot the opinion that the new experimental farm located hero Is to bo devoted wholly to experiments in irrigation farming. That is where the News In mistaken for the greater part of the farm Is of dry land and will be devoted to demount rut Ions in dry land farming. Tho Pennsylvania editors Just stopped off here to see the coal mines, something they never see or hear of in Pennsylvania. To-morrow Lethbrldge will enjoy the privilege of entertaining the members of the Aret Legislature of Alberta, as well as the gentlemen who sit in the House ot Commons and Senate at Ottawa aa represen -tat Ives of the peoplo ot Alberta. It behoves Lethbrldge to give tho entire party a rousing welcome. Let them know that this city Is aa wide awake, energetic and prosperous as any in the province. Give tho visitors the warm hand of friendship, show them about the city and vicinity and impress them with our location as tho capital of Southern ^ Alberta. Pound into their ears, Orlt and Tory, Cabinet Minister and member, tho fact that LethbrWgc must have a lands titles office. Show them where the intends building Tt's* high level oriilge and point out the absolute necessity of tho government assisting In constructing a traffic bridge beneath the other bridge, as a .convenience to tho people of this district. Keep Lethbrldge and its needs before the legislators b�t above all. see that the low makers have a rollicking good lime-a time thai th-y will never forget. Lethbrldge breakfasts have a continental reputation. The Pennsylvania editors, oh their way east, came all the way round from Calgary to havo breakfast with us. The down east Tory press is ftlam-banglng Prank Oliver day In and day out. They might as well quit at once as Prank Oliver's honesty, Integrity and ability, is too well known in the west to be affect oil I y nny squeaking party organs. been most conspicuous from the very first day of the session-has been Mr. Winston Churchill. Ills rise has been rapid. There are those who predict that before many years, all going well, Mr. Churchill will bo the leader of tie Liberal party. Certainly ho has been the most fearless lighter of the session. Home think the blowswhlch ho deals arc too hard, but It must bo remembered that no politician in tOnglund has l)oen so terribly assailed as he. He hns triumphed over every obstacle, and although only t'n-der-Sccretary at tho Colonial OflUv, It Is my belief that he has much to do with tho shaping of the policy of that most important department. "A supremo effort has been made I to to render Mr. Churchill unpopular lu the colonies, and for nught I know in Canada (1 always distinguish I e-tween Canada and the colonies, because on the other side when I utn asked If 1 nm a colonial 1 invuriwhly say no, 1 am a Canadian.) "But to come back to my point. An unfortunato  attempt has been made to place Mr. Churchill in an unenviable light. This is u mistake. ! And, anyway, no matter v hut may ; be said about or against him, ha is i bound to prove in the long run the lire sum. lie has ul onu time hold as much its live thousand shares of this slock, all paid, and this is but. one of many In which he deals. What the old man gets out. of life it is hard to say. Year hy year he piles up money, compounding his interest time and again, and the only funds he Is known to spenh Is whnt he pays the authorities every so often for keeping an uncleanly dwelling. When (leo. Ham, the well known C. P. H. official, was in Nelson Inst week, a deputation waited upon him and urged in eloquent language that tbe C. P. U. should build an hotel In that city to accomodate the tourist trade, George listened partlently the harangue and at. Its close remarked, "Well, hoys, I don't think the C. P. It. can afford to put up an hotel here, but" and he put his hand in his poclet and pulled out nn Imitation $100,000 bill given to him ns an ad for Saskatoon and handed It to the leader-of tho deputation. "I am glad to contribute personally this amount townrds the scheme. ' Nothing more was said about the hotel. Lcthlirldge's 'population may not1 conquering hero." be as large as expected but we have many companions in disuppoi'.tm -n'. Calgary for instance. OUR POPULATION Lcthbridgc'ii population did not come up to expectations as many people felt tho city had at least 3,500 population, but as far as tbe Herald can gather, Malcolm Young, tho enumerator, took a very exact census and 2.325 seems to be the number of our inhabitants, plus (he Stafford population which is virtually ours too. making the total population nearly 3,200. One satisfactory feature of the census is the big increase in our popu -lullon. In 1001, the census, in which Lelhhridgo was included, iov-.�rod north and South Lethbrldge. North Lethbrldge covered twenty-three townships and included tne counts north of the tracks. It's population was 8(11. South Lethbrldge covered seven townships and had 1462 population. Together North and South I*th-bridge with !J0 townships hod 2320 popnlaton in 1901. Ivothbrldge city alone in 1906 has 2.325 and Lethbrldge with Stafford village and the men at the mine hns 3.128. Not so bad after all. --0- FAIR OON'TS Don't forget the fair next week. With all duo respect to Culgury, wo think it was touching too high e figure when it estimated its poptdut ion at 18,000 or 20,000. Of course a ramble through tho corridors of the hotels and on the platform would lend ono to bclievo tho population was as big as that of New York and probably that is what our dear friend, the Herald, is ei-uut ing in its estimate. The Edmonton Bulletin is be.ftan  ing to talk of the population north and south of Hod Deer again. Por goodness sake cut out the refcrvn-e to a division in the province. Let us be united and talk of the provltwo as it is, bounded on the south by the I'nlted States, tho oast by >'n�-katchewan. tho west by Britlsn Columbia and the north by tho A roll'-ocean. Many people are ot the opinion that the new depot will not bo lurge enough for Lcthbridgc's needs. We hope such is the case. Let Leth -bridge grow so fast that tho stati >n will have to be enlarged to keep up with it. Three big business blocks I �nj erected and another one about tu be constructed are evidence of lcthbridgc's growth. Saskatoon has been boasting of 5.000 population but the census shows that Lethbrldge is just as large as it is. It ever a place was boomed, it has been Saskatoon, o Mayor Adam, ot Buffalo, recently requested his fellow citizens to send in suggestions tor the betterment ot his city. Here are a few of the replies: "That the city buy and maintain a herd of 1,000 goats because there is never sickness in a family where a goat is." "That a law be passed restraining hens to their owners' premises, because hens use the next door porch for a chicken- run, but never lay eggs there." "That all the city's electric lights be made "to wink the hour, so that a man need not take his watch out in tho winter." "That it bo a misdemeanor to leave a gate open, because it's bad luck to close a gate after anyboly has left it open. "That every citizen be compelled to plant a roscbdsh before his house, to make the air sweeter." "That there be no brass street signs and that mirrors shall not be carried through the streets, because they reflect the sun into weak eyes." j "That there be dally parades In summer to amuse the children." ! "That the city supply megaphone* ! to street car conductors, so thut I deaf passengers may not be curried 'past their streets." GOSSIP �r �* ON THE SIDE jT-,tkr Don't miss a boost it along. day from now to Don't fall to see that every friend you have is urged to take in the big event.     Pon't forget to impress upon them, that Lethbrldge has tho biggest and liest fair in all Southorn Alberta. Pon't keep away from them the news that thoro will bo the best program of sports ever offered to un Alberta croud. EDITORIAL NOTES. Welcome to the Legislators. brightest lethbrldge is the in Sunny Alberta. Now. legislators you didn't put the bridge. plo.' THE MAN WHO GETS. South Blenheim, Pa., Globe.

A visito- in tho city lust week remarked that Lethbrldge hud three striking drawbacks.

F. 15. Simpson of the Cranbrook Herald has been appointed Liberal organizer for tho interior of British Columbia. Mr. Simpson represents a good cause und should have no trouble getting tho peoplo aroused to tho necessity of getting rid ot tno present poor government that rulos that province. Boost for the fair next week. Do your best to make all the visitors vbo will lie here next week hnppy. t'ulgary should have had its census taken while tho fair was on there. How would it be to hold a public meeting to discuss the three bylaws thut nro to be submitted this month. f.'eorgo Hatch tells me land seekers who have farmed in Nebraska, Dakota and other Western States do not pay any attention to knockers. They met them v lien they went to Nebraska and again as they moved farther west and have learned by experience that a knocker is usually a sour, narrow, bigoted, ignoront individual. These men when they como I up here and look at tho (and think jeulous of |thp opportunities for farming hero the cap are away ahead of most of tho western States. Wo'll bet the legislators will Icavo hero with regrets that tho capital hadn't boon located in lethbrldge. Malcolm Young says that every chap who has kicked to him about his name not being taken for the census, has had proved to his satisfaction that he was counted. Porusal of English despatches during the BOHsion ot tho Itritish parliament has convinced us that Winston Churchill, though barely thirty years of age, is probably tho biggest and by all moans, tho foremost member of tho present Liberal admlnls -tratlon. It is Interesting to read what C. II. Devlin, formerly a member of tho Canadian parliament, but now member for Galway, in tho British Parliament thinks of Mr. Churchill. Hero is what he says: "A striking figure in the now Government-perhaps the man who bns Tho News is running a column of "Twenty year's ago" items and J Wm. Henderson in glancing through , our contemporary one day last week j spied an item announcing that a j dance to be given at the Hotel ] Lethbrldge hod been |H>stponed. He couldn't understand it. He had rot heard of a dance, much less a postponement, so he accosted Louis Pabst, the hotel manager, for information. Then the joke was on Mr. Henderson for it turned out that tho postponed dance was an affair of twenty years's ago. � �-�� In the Toronto Saturday night the following item, which proves lust how mean and miserly some men can become, appears: With the carrying off of old ! jhn Morrison the list of Montreal's odd characters in finance by no mea:is comes to au end. There Is old N-il Brodie, for insttince. who is worth | perhaps four or five hundred thous  land dollars, and who is arrest>1 ; regularly at intervals for ko.p ng Ids residence in an unsanitary, not to |t>ay filthy, condition. It wus only I the other day that ho was one more {brought into court and given the ; option of a fine or imprisonment for this sumo offense; while a tow m in ths ago the authorities took it upon themselves to wash his old den out with a fire hose, tho stench beln,; such that tho neighbors complained. Here Is a man of education, and probably in his earlier years, refinement; rich beyond tho average o; mortals, and who still prefers to live in squalor and go about filthy and unclean. Neil Brodie was at onu time a minister of the gospel, and even yet bears the title of reverend. In his early days, he was, I believe, a school teacher, though how ho obtained the beginnings of his present large fortune appears to be unknown. For years he has froquonteil Montreal brokerage offices, and at times has been among the lurgest purchasers of certaiu stocks. After a visit from Neil Brodie the broker will open wide his doors and windows, even it it be mid-win-tor. He enters the office liko a man who is haunted. His watery cyo* l>oer from side to side, and his shaggy head turns as it expecting a blow fromliehind. He creeps rather than walks, and speaks in whispers. When his lean hands hold tbe ticker tape they shake as with tho palsy; but while old, Neil Brodie is apparently over in good health. For hours at i. time Brodie will sit in a puhlicsquuro shaking his head, but oblivious of all about him. The small t>oy shouts and yells at him' and shies a decayed onion or tomato; hut ho pays no attention. He is thinking of his gains und his losses, and v hut is a sta n more or less on that shabby oln coat Some idea of tho old man's stock transactions may be gained from the fact that some time since he purchased no less than four thousand shares of Montreal Street Bail -way, giving his cheque for the en- \ few weeks ago 1 copied a chnr -acteristic Item from the Mncleod Gazette but in some way or other credit was not given to that spirited weekly and 1 am now burdened with its authorship. Here is what the St. Thomas >tournal says: The following significant article from tho Letnbrldgo Herald is cul -ciliated to make people hero wonder whether Brer, Buchanan, so peaceful and genial when conducting the Journal here, has put on war paint and cultivated muscle. Evidently there's troublo brewing: As the editor will bo out of town for tho next three days and tear of immediate physical damage has temporarily left him, we would like to insinuate in a ""'d manner and in gentle terms void of all intention to offend, that it is a blockhead fool or a d-n thin skinned scoundrel who thinks that tho roal knockers of Muoleod are not the persons who mismanage Its affairs and events and ruin its fair reputation rather than this paper that is doing its utmost to raise the name ot tho town out of the sloth and mire that has for some time distinguished it, and induce Its j citizens to awaken to a knowledge of i their duties and responsibilities. A man told me the other day the easiest way to have a good time, without any expense, in the west, was to call on the real estate men and tell them he was going to invest in property. Immediately he was driven all over the country, end entertained royally.
