Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 16, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta Publishers =t B. siMraos ui - saBSCRIPTION. n Advauc* - 1.50 a year O rierwl�e - taoo a year ADVBRTISINO. Vet Montb - fH.OOPiBr Inch ARE fRACnCAL MEN. Criticlam has been made that moct ol the members of the Alberta Cth inet are poor speaJcera. Thank h�ii-vcn that that's the only weak point that can be discovered. Orotory is all very well, liu; un-less it is combined with souqj, pr-'-tical business methods on the irxn ol a public man. it is iwt worti the snap of the finger .n thi u-luiiu^tration of the aiTairs of govi.rpm,�nt. . The Alberta government, as U >f>. A. C. Rutherford remarked, In lho of bis speeches, is applying: to iiiTairs of this province practical business ideos. They nre coni ic'^inij the business of the people �ii :>.>'i-ncss principles and surety thai '� more important than having Ca i i' ministers whose only resource ready tongue. Alticrta is in safe hands und r !�., present administration and wo aic sure of good government as lon-t as they hold the rena of olBce. PEITNANENT INPROVENENTS. The suggestion made at the last m.cting Ol tRe Board of /Trade that an etlort should be ma�)e to improve our street walks and roadways is of paramou&t importance. We are not anxious to rush the city too fast, but, nevertheless, there arc many things wo couid do at tne present moment that v-ill taid in dc vcloping the city and making it on> of the most up-to- people, ft dazMl them. The receptions in the Mormon towns were shn-ply imiueiise. l.cth!.r;dge did its part well, too. and it was encouraging to hear men of the practical, far seeing type of Hon. W. U. Gushing, foretell that this city was bound to grov- and become one of the great cities of Alberta. Ix>thbridge .a8s. up. i Just read this to prove wliiit iiat oral ga.s does for Medicine Itut: At �n adjourned mcctiig of the city council hold yesterday afternoon the tax rate for 1906 was fixed at t�el\-e and one halt mills for all with a ten per cent. ro-] liate for cash payinehts. Under muni-icipal ownership the tax rate is Ic ing steadily nnluced in. a manner which is satisfactory to the citixcns. Very extensive municipal worl.s �re being undertaken this year. The watcrworlcs are being extended and a gravity fllteration system install.Hl and half a million gallon stealstand pipe built on the hill. Thirty th>.is and dollars are being spent on gran olithic sidewalks and the rcwerairp system has been started. The 985.-000 municipal building is about completed. The revenue this year from the mimicipal gas system is rst iiu -ated at $30,000. GOSSIP-xH: ON THE SIDE rattler THE MORMON FARMER. \c.xt week the ratepayers will Ijo called upon to vote on threo >n them in recent correspondence in the Toronto Globe, and the Herald believes that they have good rcoson to feel aggrieved. As in other communities, the Mor -mons have people, who arc poor slovenly farmers, but investigation will show, that as a rule tho. Mormons are up-to-date, scien -tific farmers. True many of them, in, tho early years of their residence in Southern Alberta, did not farm in a manner to meet with great success, but the advanced methods of some of their neighbors have be.n adopted and a visit to the Cardston, Uay-mond, Magrath and Siirling districts today will reveal some of the finest farms that are to be found in .Vl-berta. The legislators on their tri|> to the south Inst week wcra strotig ly of this, opinion and the minist..>r of agriculture, who ought to be a first rate judge, claimed he had not scan tetter crops or letter fa;in anywhere in the province. The Mormon people may differ with tho great majority of us in their le ligious belief, but it is only just that � they should be given as fatr (frealment as other clu-sses of the community. In many rcsjiects, thcy can set us nn example. The Globe's criticism of the Mormon farmer is contradicted the article by the luvis'h piaite. bestowed upon the farm of .f. A. Silver. Mr. Silver Is n ropri'srntat ivo-Mormon and he is recognized as a most progressive citiacn.

I,cihbridgc, Alberta. the hub of Central We award the Mormom people the prisie for being the bejt entertainer within the borders of Canada. Hon. W. H. Cushing can see Xieth-bridge growing. Sure! it is coming along splendidly. Who'd have ''thunk" it. Moose Jaw beats Regina out in population Moose Jaw has 6250 and Retina has 6317. Regina is drinking from/the cup of disappointment. It figured on a population of 10,000 and i� nearly 4000 shy. Somebody must have pulled the "wool" over the eyes ol the Kditor of the Medicina Bat Kews, wher said the ''veriest dolt of a farmci could grow crops with irrigation." Does he imagine for a moment that in the practical application of irrigation no brains are required? Of course in the fostering of home in dustries he may be content to le: the "wool" remain over the eyes, under the Hat. They are very f^w farmers who understand the laws and the values of irr.gation. It requires years of experience to properly control the water and �:;vi!;t it onto the land so as to provide liie life giving properties to the growing crops. We .question . whether Lethbridge ever had a better write up of its resources and possibilities than the article written for tho ToronloGlobc by P. A. Acland. Mr. Acland came here and made a thorough inspection of the city and the surrou.idin district and bis impr.-(sibns of 3ur grain fields and~ the growth of the city, should cheer all of us. Tha ar tide wasn't paid for, so it cm Vo looked upon as a fair and imp.irti il judgment. Lieutenant Governor Bulyea's suggestion in his speech here last Fri-day thlit the members of tho Doniiii ion Parliament should come herein inspect the country is in the right direction. They need .to be cnlight -ened about the west and only a trip over the land will gi%-e them an id-.-a of tho great country they are os sisting in governing. Sunny Atherta, it was all las', week.

On the recent trip of tho lojislat; ors I was m.uth iitlpressed with the Lieutenant Governor. Hon. Mr. Bul-yea is a typical westerner. He is a genial man and puts on none of the "side" that: is usually found al.out the (lersons representing the crown in the provinces. He is as ap -proachable as when he was u cab -inet minister or citizen of Indian Head*. A Lieutenant Governor of his sort will do much to make the olllco popular in this province, which is being rapidly inhabited by Americans, who have an impression that Governor Generals and Lieutenant* Governors are high and mighty and do not coitdcscend to mix with tho people. Pincher Creek is one of the moft delightfully located places I haveseen in the west, the country about it is magnificent and the drive from tie station-and whatever made the C. P.

Mr. MacMicking should join the gun club without delay. The Queen's hotel, Macleod, is ine of the best hotel buildings I have seen in the West. It is tarnished in keeping with the richness of the structure.

Don't allow the result of these important, measures to be decided by a few people. Medicine Hat News says: Medicine Hat will be in the third placa amun^ Alberta cities in population. Our figures will be greater than those of I/!thbridge with Stafford and the mines included.

Can't something be done to set a-side part of thevbbautlful river bottom for canifiors^ Many of lur citizens would like to go down there and camp diiring the hot summer months, hut we understand they are prevented froni doing so. The City Council ought to acquire once, as much of Jthe land along the east side of the river. as possible, and set it out as a park and recreation ground. It would l>e a great'] asset not only for the present cren eration, but for the future as well> A. merchant said the other day "It looks lUio the only way to bring [armcrs to town these days is to advertise a special sale, "That is the way the up-to-date merchant cov. -ducts his business. A few, years ago it was an accepted fact thai from about the first of July to the first of October and from January 1 to April 1, business practically stopped Now these months are as liUay as any. When there is nothing that I>eoplo have to buy, the merchants make sales with pricesTsb attractiv that everyone wantis to buy. The iff suit is that business keeps up w'th-out any period of sta^hatioh; the merchant doesn't carry over a lot of goods from one season to'anoth er, and farmers and others can buy necessities at much lower prices than if they wait until tliey must te t'ad at any price.-Ex. - ' -Magrath Plpneer;-Why don't, you go to and paint that hoiise of yours Must wo eternally and everlastingly keep on trying to imund this into your httad?

Some people spend their time in looking for windfalls instead of boosting the town and then takin:; what will come his way. They hand the town a black "bunch," and kick liecause they are too lazy to work. Some people would like to see this or that happen-not for the town's good, but because it will swell their i-esourcen-but will not do a th'ng towards helping their scheme bee^u^ it might help some one else at the same time.

'Calgary ilerald ; ; ; A southern Alberta paiier had the following' interesting news itcmi in a recent nuu^r. Raymond, Alta., Aug. 6.-The a1 berta;; Pacific elevator people offer Mr. silver between 60 and 65 cents per bushel for h's wheat for October delivery. They are shipping to Dakota and Nebraska, the home 01 the Turkey Red, the Alberta Red, which through its improvement on the parent stock, is greatly preferable for seed, demonstrating the superiority of this country for wheat production. E. �. Thompson, of High River, nmde Mr,, Hilver a flat offer of 7a cents per Imshcl for 10,-000 bushels, delivery to be mabc as soon as the^grain was threshed, Mr. Gilfoy, of the Calgary Milling company in conmientlng upon khis statement sa.vs that tho price of October fwheat in Raymond is 51J cts. This is exact. Tho price of wheat for October delivery in Winnipeg is 71i cents today. The home of Alberta red is lot Dakota and Nebraska but Kansas. Mr. Gilfoy is heartily_in fovor ol Mr. iCarson's suggestion that tho mills of Alberta establish agen-' eles in the Orient. He doubts however, whether the number of mills nt present located in the province won Id justify the expense at present. The^Calgary Milling company an intiimttoly in touch 'whh the Oriental - nmrkets.

ITio flour of the Island continent is an important^ factor Avhich must be reckoned With. Australian ihillers put their lloiir at Hong Kong for �i.75, which is 00 cents cheaper than..

There are todoy 800-000 bags of their flour Jying oh the Hong Kong market, worm eaten and languishing for buyers. , The Raymond Milling company is. almosttho only Alberta company who hiue shipped to tho Orient any large consignment during this year.

R. is giving favorable rates, in fact is showing a ^dec[dcd pre'erence to. the Oriental trade, and trana-oeeanic shipnients are facilitated by the local freight department.
