Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 5, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta iHEKALD PM|iTINaca.vLTO. 0. D. AUSTIN, Editor mi MtMfer. W. JORDAN. S�pt ! Jok Oepartaeat.

Tha subscriptian for tha daily will b# four dallars a yaar delivered, and thraa dollar* a year to subacribar* who aacura tha paper through the past affica. Every part of tha city will be covered by the delivery sy�-taip. We are now open to receive .aubscription* and advertieinig. Don't 'be backward in coming forward with both. The Daily Herald will do you good, and we are not backward in also saying that it will do the city good too. ~ "Sfr. Ives is right. No sane citizon expoCta men who have tli.spluyecl faith in qiir'city by investing in our in-lustriei, � to be dobarreoi froiu scrying it the council board.. Of c^rs� wc .vould object to them - sitting in the council with no other purpose in view than to grind their own axe. Thos. McNabb struck it right. City councils, no matter how hard they work for the city, "never get any credit. The're is always some narrow minded little knocker around who is prepared to squeal if the taxes go up a half mill. When all is said and done, Leth-bridge had as good a Mayor last year, as it ever had. Dr. Oalbraith gave the city good service. Maple Creek knew a good, progressive man when it placed Fred Downer on its council board. We don't know whether Mr. Downer is a citizen of Maple Creek or Lethbridge, but no matter where he is. he is always at the back of every good movement for the advancement of both places. He is a booster all the time. Sunday Sckool ConyentkHL Tlii.s aftiTiioon in Kiio.v Church, a -Sunriay School Convent on for the eleulnriil di.sli-.'ct of Lethbridge .and Cnrdst.on is in . taken and special niukic lomleru*!. To.tbe Ratepayers of the City of Letlibridge H.tving been to panjr's consent must be secured but the Herald is confident there will be no difficulty in that respect as that company is public spirited and - is anxious for the improvement of the appearance of the city. The square as a breathing place would still be with as. The new public buildings could be placed systematically at one section of the square, probably in the centre. Lots of open space would be left (or park purposes. Leading up to these buildings would be paths lined by beds of flowers and trees, in fact the entire square could be transformed into the most beautiful park In western Canada and thv: , cost of maintenance would not all , rest upon the city either, for it is certain ;that the Provincial and Dominion governments would be wilting to assist in keeping up the lawns, flower beds and trees. We are sure ttiejr.would be glad to do it.. ' The entire matter i.t one that should ; l�e taken up without delay. The Provincial government has an option on aeveral sites for a new Court house, and the council cannot act too soon. The Gait Company must be approached first, and once their consent ia secured the government could be approached. As far as Wm. Henderson is concerned, we believe lie is entitled to fair play. He is a good citizen. He has lived in Lethbridge lor many years. Most of his money is invested here and lit is always willing to help the city along. He has had municipal experience, too, and his platform as announced in the Herald, with the exception of the ward system proposal is commendable. We may not agree with him in every respect but we believe in rendering credit where credit is due. - A LOCAL BUDGET. k. B. Macdonald, the choce of the Liberals of the Macleod district for the Federal House, is a pioneer of Alberta. Probably no man is better known than this' popular native of Glengarry, who has been ranching at the foothills of the Bockies for many years. He is acquainted with the needs of all classes, and would make an exceptionally capable representative of the constituency at Ottawa. He is a man of the very best character, well informed on all public queatipuK, and ^ thorough believer in the futurs of Western Canada. Macleod should work (or his election .enthusiastically and earn estly. OUR POINT OF VIEW The atmosphere of Sunny Southern Alberta is the finest in the land. Times are better in Lethbridge than any other part of Alberta. r , Our fanners are still ploughing and this is the first week of December. Do your Christmas shopping early and save the clerks from being rushed to death on Christmas eve. Much criticism is oflered to members of the council accepting business from the municipality. If may be a hardship to some to lose business nn account of their being members of the council, but it is only proper that the law in this respect should be Observed. It looks too much like graft when members of the council arc given contracts for this, that and the other thing. It appears as though they were in the council for the benefit of their own pockets, and naturally and rightly the people are critical. The new council should be made up of men wh^ will, refuse to accept busine-ss from the city. A Lethbridge lady wrote a letter to a friend in the east saying that she was penning the epistle while sitting at the back door of her home with the rays of Alberta's fine old sun shining upon her. The lady in the east could not understand such weather conditions for in Ontario, the sun wasn ot shining, but on the other hand there were rain and raw winds. Sunny Alberta ought to be good enough for anybody. ^ Any candidate for alderman who thinks our streets are creditable should be trimmed at the polls. 7 '. Wm. Henderson's platform has ' aome real good planks, but there is '"i\v), and that is the division of the 6//'v' city into wards, that the Herald will fc�?ri"r*>PP�� ^'om 'pow until, doomsday. In older cities the ward system is Ijl^Bftbeing^gradually ^abolished.. ' Compel the new citjr council to |V;-4'^nrlx?r in Seaman's barber .shop, d'e^l at Maple Creek thi.s week. The Mission Band of Knox Church had a successful .sale at tho residence of Mrs, O. H. .lohuston on Friday. Frank H. Sherman has been elected district president of the United Mineworkers o( America again, his opponent, Wm. Douglas, o( Miche, having retired. Tho Ladies Aid of Wesle.v Church iMid a very successful stole of work, and cookery on Tuesday. Evwy-thing was sold, netting the ladies over opc hundred dollars. Mre. .1. S. Stewart will receive for the tirst time at her home on Bur-dett St., on Friday afternoon andl evening the Cth of l>ec., and not again until the first Thursday in February. A very RUcco.ssful! meeting of the Anglican. Young I>eopIe'H AMioclation wa.s held in the vestry of St. Augus-tin's Church on Tuesday evening. The programme con.sisted of essays and songs, all of which were enjoyed by the large number present. The meeting on Tuesday evening, Uec. lOth, promises to bo of unusual interest. The Ladies Aid of Gait Hospital will meet at the residence of SIr�. Oeorge Rogers on .Saturday, Dec. 7th at .four o'clock. Mrs. .\. B. S'tafford will not reccjve on Friday afternoon of this woek. Gus* Neidig conducted a most suc-'cessful ma.s4|U(>ra(t(3 hall in the Bijou Hall last Thursday evening. As ail exidonce of Lothbridgc's publicity in the British Po.staI Service is tho receipt of a letter by Postmaster Higinbothaan of a letter addressed to n lady in Lethbridgw, Victoria, Australia, from ISngiand. Mortimer Priest went down to Ma� pie Cr(.e conducted by the Pa.stor. In tho forenoon hia subject will ijc "A Dark Valley" and in the evening "The Kxternal and Internal spread of Christianity." Bv-erjbotly made welcome at the Tabernacle. Tlie prograinine at the Bijou for the balance of this 'veek pro.niscs some very exciting life-like scenes, and will include "Dres,sing in a H ry," "CarHMjo Hunt," Dog Acrobat, Mag;ic Drawing Boom, and Prisoner's Escape. Ah exhibition of veivtril by .1. W. Sherrati. will also be included on this |>rO)^ramme. The Williams .Jubilee Singers during ^hc past wciak gave two of the l>est concerts ever given in the city. The company, which includes a male quartotite and a female quartette, is a dcciilcflly strong aggregation. Unlike most negro companies,'they are as Htrong in the "white" songs mfi in their own melodies. Every number yvun thoroughly enjoyed both at the Saturday and Wednesday evening con cei'ts by the largo audiences. The Williams Company can be sure of a hearty reception just as oftert as they wish to come to Lethbridge. The Epworth Iit�gue, under whoso auspic es they appeared, is to be congratulated on securing such good entertain ers. The following item will e of interest to many people in the South Country who have met Mr. Mclntyre during his connection with the Alberta government: A quiet wedding took place at St. George's Church. Fort Saskatchewan, on Sunday, Nov. 24. when R. Mclntyre, assistant chief engineer of the provincial gcrv-^rnment, and Miss M. Sharpe, of London, Eng., were united In marriage by the Rev. Canon d'Easum. an ^Id-time friend of the bridegroom. Mr. Mclntyre is one of the early Calgary resdents, dating from -sgo, who ntioved to gtrathcuna last spring. . Mr. Mclntyre wu a resident -of Lethbridge in the early days, during the A.. B. A I. eonitruotion. If elected it will ixj my eniteavor to have the alTttirs of the city carried on as economically as possible, in order that tins revenue deriwd from taxation can be used to the greatest possible advantage, llic prc^)c>n't con d:tion of the money market practically excludes the possibility of many largw public improveinents being carried out, and it will be a question for the council 'to dccifle if conditions do not irnprovc as to whether it would not be odvisable to postpone sonv! thiiigs until chea|)er money can t� had. I have always urged that the district covered by the suiier-ossessment was too extensive and unfair, inasmuch that it may be some time before improvcniauts of a public na-Jturo will'he required in the outlying portions. I will endeavor to restrict the district to parts in which inone.V is to be spent, or to rctluco the ixirccntuge of- assessment on such parts us are only indirectly benefitted by improvements. Our fire department needs improv-'i ing in the matter of quick turn out nnd 1 will 8\ip)>ort any reasonable act on towards this, and for the more genornl dis^tributing of tho e<|-uipmcnt to enable the east end and North Ward to have greater protection. 1 will do oil in my power to advance tlie welfare o. the city, by ew-couraging industries, and will carry �on a vigorous publicity campaign for this purpose. All bylaws and statutes alTecting the good government of the city .will be strictly enforced. I am in favor of greater publicity in municipal afTairs that ratepayers may know the manner in which their interests are looked after. Having- had eleven ycttrs experience in city matters I feel I can serve you to advantage on account of my know ledge of general rectuircmcnts, and) I will endeavor in oil things, to protect your interests without partiality. Vours faithfully. our growing city close and businesslike attention. Believe me, Vours respectfully. HkUn bjfi Moidiy liit, In. 1 To the ElEctors Having been nominated for Alderman of the City, 1 respectfully solicit your vote and influence. If elected I shall give the City's in terests my best attention in every regard. Voting takes place on Monday, December 9th.
