Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 30, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta I. nmrtcai RIDfili HERALD W. A. BCCIAltAlf V SVaSCRZPTZOK: nAdy�ao� 91.80 ayMr '0',h�rwl�� a.OO a year U , ADVERTI8IHO: far-Month . 91,00 Par Inch wATCi lEiiitiKi aww. VWatch Lethbridgv Orow" now "that the'^ratepajrera hav� shown the - good aounid aenfle'to aupport all the "by-lawa ; that wei� aubmltted to them last Friday. The ehdonatibn of-these meaaures marks the cdmiaenoeineiit at the in-  dustrial era in our hiMory.nnd from now on liethhridge must ntnk as one of the manufacturing: eentrea of Western Canada. I�thbridge offers exceptional opportunities to manufacturers, which will bo increased when natural gas is found. All that is necessary now ;^ is to get the Hour mill and woollen mill in operation, and soon other industries will locate here and avail themselves of the facilities this city possesses.! The vote on the by-laws was ni*:-what sjirprising. The measure that soemcfi'most'likely to meet strunv opposition, the Woollen Mill by-law stood to the front, while t^�i k>r iWa believe,to prejudice, oioro tnm an}-thing eiae. Therp is kn o)->nuuit ^n^'every cdminunity that poss!i�o^ m their miods, a dislike for every ;>c -son who is succeeding in th.t �ri.>i'lii andi'al'togiitlKr likely most of iho votes cast against all the lyifiw.. w^.Inspired by the feeling ihtit ^ few men thight make a Uttle n.�)njy >. out of the succMS of the several enterprises. The broad minded view tha welfare of liCthbridge was not  taken. The growth and progress of I.�thbridg� will soon uMike this ' bridgn grow."' the street corners, put u|> thu mcas -ley cry, "Oh, the newspapcrn were bought up. They repioNcrit y-laws were emphatic enough to prove that Lethbridge peopld^' favor progress. Nor, watch Lethbridge grow. Lethbridge, the industrial centre of Alberta. The knockers will soon 'be knocked out of business. IHte Calgary Herald terms Hon. W. S. Fielding "a fallen idol" because' he was unseated as mcnuber for Queens-Shelbournc, N.S., owing to corrupt acts by an agent. Mr. Fielding is not "a. fallen idol" by any means. He was not impiic -ated, cither by knowledge or auth -ority. in the bribery that' was prac -Used. He is too clean a public man to bo identified .with any such practices. Hut Mr. Fielding may have o^'er zealous supporters, who wouhl not even pay iittention to his c6nv-mand "Keep it clean." As a matter of fact, though much lo the disgrace of our political methods, very few, if any elections in Canada arc conducted without resort, being nude to bribery; i The candidates, how,-ever may not be, in fact, in most cases are ndt. aware of the corruption that is being used in their behalf. Mr. Fielding has simply �>een !�-lentlessly^ pursued by his opponents in onler to besmirch his reputation, in-order that hie great strength in jfova Scotia nright be lessened. But not one bit of evidence given during the trial, implicates Mr. Field)3g personally, and his record is just a.s .|,clean today as it ever was. The Calgary Herald nuist no.t (--get that the Conservativk>s did not consider Sir John Macdonald' and Sir John Carling "fallen idols" after the election exposures in Kingston and London, the latter election being one of the crookedest ev.u-brought to' light in Canada. Lethbridge blankets ond I.*thbrirfge Hour will soon Iw on the market. Monday will be oelebratad througb-; out Canada and the United States as Labor Day. It ia a day that ran Ije observed by every class in the conunimity. From one year's end to the other, we all labor in diOerent lines ' of work. Probably the day has more significance to the men, who are employed in trades. These men have become a mighty force in the world. They have united and today no class is stronipr in numbers -than the wqrkihgmen. Unions are Ijeing organised in every city, town and village of the country., wkh the very conuneRdable object in view of protecting pie employee. Very few )>eople are bigot�d and.narrow minded enough, to dispute the right of trades unions to exist. The laboring men are as much justified in uniting, for their protection, as the capitalists who favor trusts and combines in,order to keep up prices and put out of existence the small concerns. As long as labor unions are guided by intelligent men, tteir existence will be beneficial, but once they become the instruments of selfish and dishonorable men, to gain ' ends ' that are imworthy, they will ^ be a curae to the community. Many of the labor troubles'that exist today could have been avoiiled if intelligence and foroai^ had been " used. Top many labor leader* possess the insane idea that a strike must take place regularly or the . world will not know they are alive. For our'iiart we'believe, the labol leader who is iBtellicBnt and able enough avoitl a strike, and still gain assisUnce for his fellow men ia the best friend latwr poaacnes.. The buU dog polic;^ i^hich demands thai "everything wis ask mutt be granted or wr wJiKstrlke'V^ii/'a'�It must always be reuiemliered the ,�!�> ploycr has rights''as � well oa the -employee, and, it will be a happy day, when employees and employen � cap,..,:�lt down together. aiid aeitle their(:iiifferenees amicabiy by the V - of most of our citizens. His garden, too, is just as Hnc as any in Southern Alberta. No wonder then, the judges gave him the prize of �10 oflferod by D. J, Whit -ney for the best collection of trees in the city, variety, numiber, thrifti-ness, cultivation ond effectiveness of display to be considered. The Herald in error, last week, gave the prize to another person and we gladly-make the correction now. Several'Ontario schools didn't open at the first of the month. The reason is they didn't offer salaries large enough to induce teachers to accept positions with thotn. These schools deserve to Ijc closed, until the ratepayers are prepared to whack up a decent income for the teachers. If any class deserves to be paid well it is t^e men and women who have the education of the boys and girls of the country in their charge. TUHEE; ny-hJim CARltlBU. fNtoplo Stood by a Trogresaive Pol- ic.y. Considerable interest was nwni-fes(od in the vote on the bylaws Inst Friday and a'large numlier of ri^e-payors turned out to cast their hai lots.  * Ihiring (he day certain misgivings existed amongst supiwrters of the Hour mill and gas boring by-law-. to their success, bikt thc.s4> wer>: rt'uioved' when (he ballots were coii.tt ed and it vas learned all the bylaws had been carried by large majorities.

The feeling in the city is gen-[.eral that a good flow of gas will be secured. 'I'he Woollen mill may be in .operation in D�!cembcr. A site will be secured as soon as possible and the liuilding of the factory immediately lORHiienced. The removal.' o( the plant from Medicine Hat will not take place until the factory is ready for occupancy. Last Friday wasn't an uiilucky! day. If it had been the bylaws would not have carried. ^ We hope that the Electric Light fjo.'a Christmas gift to Lethbridge will be a well, with a big flow of gas.  m iNociiNfi.
