Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 30, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta BRIDGE HERALD S'MPSON A BtfCHANAN Publishers t. 81llMOJ� W. A. BUCHANAN gas boring by-law, which gu*rint>*-d municipal ownership of both gun � electric light if gas was discovered and did not necessitate tUo city spending one cent in boring operat Ions, had the smallest majoriiv, �!. we believe to prejudice, inoro tn� anything else. There is on "'ome.i in every community that posi-iav-i in their minds, a dislike for every pc-son who is succeeding In lh- world and": altogether likely most of the votes cast against all the i.v'.iu-.,  wera Inspired by the feeling ih.it -few men might make a 'ditto ti.on>y . out of the success of the several enterprises. The broad minded view the welfare of Lethbrldge was not � taken. The growth and progress of lothbridge will soon make this class a nonentity In the community and the city will possess a united people, ever eager to advance the ' city and its interests. * We believe the endorsation of these by-laws will very quickly result in the rapid development of LetMirldge. Tt will convince outsiders that the people of .this city have confidence in the future of this country and the natural resources at our very doors. Capital will bo invested here in other lines, for capitalists believe In placing their money in a city hat possesses citizens who are alive and progressive. .  "Watch Leth- bridge grow." LABOR IAY~ JL the street corners, put up the metis -ley cry, "Oh, the newspapers were bought up. They represent the F.lec-trlc Light Co., the shareholdcYs of the flour mill and woollen mill, I'm onto their game."  Those chaps wore merely hanging round waiting for somebody to buy them up ami put this yarn in circulation, to see (f It wouldn't, start a dollar bill towards their own pockels. .Just for the.snke of satisfying the9c agitators, the Hernld can say, as far as it is concerned, that not one iXM'son ever asked it to sup port "any of the by-laws. The reason is easily understood. Loth bridge people, at least those who ore not living in the past, ages know the Herald Is strongly In favor of every movement for l/dhbrldge's advancement. We supported the by luws^n that account and we will continue advocating every project that will "boost, lothbridge along.' No Hip Van Winkle s.leeps for us 'X n the first place, wu want a resident judge located hero and we don't know a man who would All the bill better than Onus. A. Stuart who Is one of the ablest lawyers in Alberta. If'fx>thbrldge was to depend upon the enterprise that is to be found In the anatomy of some of lis residents, the streets would soon l>c marked with "To l^et." "For Sale" and "Mortgage Hale" signs. The. majorities for the by-laws were emphatic enough to prove that Lothbridge people" favor progress. Nov watch Lethbrldge grow. Lcthbrldge, the Industrial centre of Alberta. NOT "A FALLEN IDOL" The Calgary Herald terms Hon W. 8. Fielding "a fallen idol" be cause he was unseated as .member for Queens-Shclbourne, N.S., owing to corrupt acts by an agent. Mr. Fielding is not "a fallen Idol' by any means. He wns not impllc atcd, either by knowledge or auth orlty In the bribery that was prac Used. He Is too clean a public man to be Identified .with any such practices. Hut Mr. Fielding may have over zealous supporters, who would not even pay attention to his command "Keep It clean." As a matter of fact, though much to the disgrace of our political methods, very few. If any elections in Canada are conducted without resort, being made to bribery.  The candidates, however may not be. In fact, In most cases are not, aware of the corrupt-Ion that Is being used in their behalf. Mr. Fielding has simply been relentlessly pursued by his opponents in order to besmirch his reputation, itr* order that his great strength in Nova Scotia might lie lessened. Hut not onu bit of evidence given during the trial, implicates Mr. Fielding personally, and his record Is Just as .clean today ns it ever was. The Calgary Herald must not t get that the Conservatives did nut consider Sir John Macdonald and Sir John Carling "fullen idols" utter the election exposures in Kingston and Ixmdon, the latter election being one of the crookedest ever brought to' light in Canada. The knockers will soon >bc knocked out of business. Lothbridge blankets and l/>thhridge Hour will soon he on the market. To the people who conscientiously voted against the by-laws, no one can offer criticism, but the grumpy chaps, who marked their ballots a-galnst It, Just because they were afraid somebody else may make a dollar, ought to move to t'odunk. The city would be far better oft without them. W. II, ltobson possesses one of the finest properties In the city. He has displayed great taste in the planting of trees anil shrubs and In a few years he will have a lawn that will bo the envy of most of our citizens. His garden, too. Is Just ns fine as any in Southern Alberta. N'o wonder then, the Judges gnvo him the prize of #10 offered by 1). .). Whit -ney for the best collection of trees In the city, variety, number, thrifti-iipsh, cultivation and effectiveness of display to be considered. The Herald TllHEi; liy-LAWS (UltUIfSD dmplo Stood by a Progressiva Policy. Considerable Interest was manifested In the vote on the. bylaws Inst, Friday and a' large mimtier of ratepayers turned out to cast their ballots. * During the day certain misgivings existed amongst supporters of the flour mill and gns boring by-law, ns to their success, but these wet'.' removed when the ballots were cou tt ed anil it was learned all the bylaws had been carried by large majorities. The votes were as follows: NATURAL OAS BYLAW. For >.......................................... Of. Against ..................................... ft Majority for by-law FLOUU MILL HY-LAW. For ........

The feeling in the city is gen- in error, last week, gave the prize |praj tnat n good flow of gas will bv to another person and we gladly ] EDITORIAL NOTE! Last Friday wasn't an unlucky' day. If it hud been the bylaws would not have carried. We hope that the Electric Light Co.'s Christmas gift to Lothbridge will ue a well, with a big flow of gas. 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 thom. These schools deserve to lie closed, until the ratepayers are prepared 1o whack up a decent Income for the teachers. If any class deserves to lie paid well it is tjie men and women who have the education of the boys and girls of the country in their charge. The Inte Vcn.

B. Bowman Agency LETHBRIDGE ALBERTA GEORGE M. HATCH C. R. DANIEL ALBERTA REALTY COMPANY (OFFICES IN SOUTHARD BLOCK, LETHBRIDGE) Monday will bo celebrated throughout Canada and the United States aa Labor Day. It is a day that ran lie observed by every class In the community- From one year's end to the other, we all labor in different lines of work. Probably the day has more significance to the men, who nre employed in trades. These men huvu become a mighty force in the world. They have united and today no class Is stronger in numbers than the workingmen. Unions are �>olng organized in every city, town and village of the country, .with the very comnwdable object in view of protecting M�o employee. Very few jx'oplo are bigoted and narrow mind-i-d enough, to dispute the right ot trades unions to exist. The laboring men are as much Justified in uniting for thoir 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, their existence will be beneficial, but once they become the instruments of selfish and dishonorable men, to gain I ends that are unworthy, they will ^ be a curse to the community. Many of the. labor troubiea**that exist today could have been avoided if intelligence and foresight had been used. Too many labor leaders possess the insane idea that a strike must take place regularly or the world will not know they are allvn. For our part we believe, the labor leader who is intelligent and able enough to avoid a strike, and still gain assistance for his fellow men is the best friend labor possesses. The bull dog policy1 which demands that "everything we ask must be granted or we will strike" is a curse. It must always be remembered the .employer has rights' as well as the employee, and it will be a happy day, when employees and employers can sit down together and Battle their differences amicably by the "glvo and take" method, without resorting to strikes. No man deserves a holiday better than C. 0. ilowman. He is a tireless worker. He does not limit his labor to any number of hours, but works while there Is work to do. The Herald trusts he will have * real good holiday in his old haunts in Nova Scotia. MESS UUNMMtS.
