Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 16, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta ETHBRIDGE HERALD Publishers W.

Criticism has boon tnado that moet of tho members of tho Alberta Cub inct are poor speakers. Thank lu.i von that that's tho only weak point that can be discovered. Oratory is all very well, bu; i.n-less It is combined with sound, pr I-ness principles and surely ihut '* more Important than having On i > minister;! whoso only resource ready tongue. Allierta is In safe hands unri present administration and we sure of good government as ion,' ns they hold the ro ns of onVe.' Int6 for this part of Alberta tolllgently. They will bo able realize tho great resources of region. Prior to this trip ninny of thorn possessed tho foolish Idea that tho south was the tall end of Alberta, but they should now lie convinced that the south Is the richest ami best part of tho province. They saw here crops .that could not I o surpass-ed In the much boomed north and they will find in a few years that tho trend of Immigration will he more to this district than any other section of the west. Nothing impressed the vis 'lorstnore than the hospitality of the southern people. It dar.ed them. The receptions In the Mormon towns were simply immense l.eth!.r:dgo did lis part well, too. and it was encouraging to hour men of the practical, fur seeing type of lion. w. II.

Tho suggestion made at tho last m.eting of tne Hoard of Trade that an effort should be made to Improve our street walks and roadways ic of paramount importance. We are not anxious to rush the city too fast, but. nevertheless, there are many things we could do at tne present moment that will tatd in do veloping the city ami making it oik of the most up-to-date places In the entire west. Oranolethic walks should lo placed on all our business streets, and If at all possible, tho roadways surrounding the square, should be paved ns soon ns the city can see its .v ty clear. Pavements on the struts would remove ' "the dust nuisance, which Is n menace to our merchants Tho early introduction of these tin- ENCOURAGE THE FARMER. lxlhbridgc is ambitious lo ixUiln its grip upon the trade of tho far  mors in this region, but, if what wo have been told lately is true, soura of tho merchants here are not udopting a course, that will aiirast tho business of the people settled on tho farms round about us. Complaints huvo been made to the Herald by fanners, that they bring produce in hero und tho merchants refuse to purchusc it. As a result some of them are thinking seriously of cutting out this city as a mar ket and going to Clnresholm rnd other points instead. What Lcthbridge should do, Is to encourage in every way tlur cstab  Ushmont of tho best market in Southern Alberta here. Nothing will build up the trade of our merchants to a greater extent than treatliw tho fanners who come here as Mb-erally as possible. Iluy their butter, eggs and veset ables and never allow them to /v turn to their homes with one .bit ol the produce they have brought here for sale. Surely, tho merchants I* they cannot dispose of butter and eggs and vegetables to customers hero can find a ready market in the large industrial centres to the wn�' of us. provemenls lcthbridge. would be he'i'ful P> THE BYLAWS. THE MORMON FARMER. Nv.xt week the rutcpaycis will U> called upon to voto on throo �oy important bylaws-measures U t have much to do with tho de.vioii -trout of this city as an indiii centre. No city in the West offer* >iti�r opportunityb to manufacturers than! lcthbridge and all we need '.o "o, i ut tho present moment is to locate I a few concerns here and others will. follow in their footsteps, without j much effort. Tho discovery of natural gas is really the -foundation of our Indus -trial advancement. Hy its presence here, we will have cheap power to offer manufacturers. So it behooves tho ratepayers to support the bylaw to provide for the electric company to bore for gas. It gas Is discovered tho city has to reimburse the company to tho extent of $10,000 and has also to purchase tho electric light plant. Tho city will make ne held early In the week to discuss nil three by-laws. In order that, tho ratepayers may !.o .'t&perty 'enlightened. Tho Mormon ]>eoplo are naturally indignant at some aspersions cast n them in recent correspondence in the Toronto Ulobe, and tho Herald believes that they havo good reus >n I to feel aggrieved. As in other communities, the Mor  tuons have |r of agriculture, who ought to lie a first rate Judge, clulmod ho hud not seen Letter crn|>s or teller farm anywhere in tho province. The Mormon people may differ with the great itiujorlty of us in their le ligious belief, tint it is only just that . they should le given as ful.r treatment as other classes of the community. In many respori*. they cuu set us an example. The filobe's criticism of the Mormon farmer is rontradicted ii the article by tho 11vis'Ii piui�t-bestowed upon tho farm of .1. A. Silver. Mr. Silver Is a ive-Mormon ami he is recognized as a most progressive cili&n city council held yesterday afternoon the tax rate for IflOO was fixed at twelve and one half mills for all purposes with a ten pee cent, rebate for cash payments. Under municipal ownership the tax rata Is I e ing steadily reduced In a manner which Is satisfactory to tho cltlsons. Very extensive municipal \vor'.;s are being undertaken this yenr. The waterworks are being extended and a gravity Alteration system Installed and half a million gallon ste,>|sUnd pipe built on the hill. Thirty thvi* and dollars are being spent on gran ollthic sidewalks and tho rcwermie system has been started. The 9. 000 municipal building Is about completed. The rovenuo this yenr fr.nn the municipal gas system is estim -a ted at 980,000. When Kipling made his' famoustotir of Canada the' large cities of Montreal. Quebec, Ottawa, Toronto.

Calgary lleruld A southern Allierta pa|>er hud the following interesting news item In a recent munbor. Raymond, Alta.. Aug. 0.-The Al liertu Pacific elevator people offer Mr. Silver botweon 60 and 05 cents per bushel for h's wheat for Octolc er delivery. They aro shipping to Dakota and Nohraskn, tho homo of the Turkey Red. tho Allierta Red, which through Its improvement on the parent stock, is greatly prefer  able for seed, demonstrating the superiority of this country for wheat production. K. IC. Thompson, of High River, mudo Mr. Silver u flat offer of 7ft cents per bushel for 10,-OOO bushels, delivery to �w mal�c as soon as thn grain was threshed. Mr. tlllfoy, of tho Calgary Milling company in commenting upon this statement says that the prico of October wheat In Raymond is fill cts. This is exact. The price of wheut for October delivery In Wlnnipo^ it 71 i cents today. The home of Allierta red Is lot Dakota nnd Nobraska but Kunsas. Mr. flilfoy is heorllly,in favor of Mr. Carson's suggestion that the mills of Alberta eslnblish agencies in the Orient. He doubts however, whether the number of mills nt present located In tho province won prominent place In Japan and China Tho Hours of Washington aro lowtu* in price. Tho Washington millers get better rates by ut leust 2 cents per barrel. Austruliii is making a big bid for Uio Orleutiil trade. Tho flour of the Islund continent is au iui|k>rUMit* factor which must bo reckoned with. Australian millers put their flour at tfong Kong for 91.75, which is 00 cents cheuper than. Allierta millers can ship it. As soon as tho boycott was put on American flour the Australians nmdo a strenuous effort to get thir trade. Thore aro today fKN). 000 bags of thoir flour lying on tho Hong Kong market, worm oaten and languishing for buyers. . The. Raymond Milling company Is almost the only Allierta company who lutvo sliip|ied to the. Orient any large consignment during this year. Tho shipment scurcely paid.
