Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 6, 1905, Lethbridge, Alberta :M�SO>f A BE No. ' T Publisher-; s. r 'NNETT ra&VI............. It SUBSCRIPTION: Ivanoo - 11.50 a year fcherWise  92,00 a year ADVERTISING: ef ttonth - 81.00 Per Inch Every young man lias his destiny in Lis own hands, and tho host way to win out is by practicing industry, economy, sobriety and intelligence. That is a combination that cannot be biaten. Southern Alberta offers unsurpassed opportunities for those who are ready and willing to grasp op-portunit'es. BtnperanCe V. TcmpCranCC. The Herald of Calgary changed its tune the other dny enough to This idea of a bunch of radicals 8jng the praises of Mr, Gushing for taking tho government to close the good work done in behalf of Cal->ars in Alberta and have the booze gary. That is right. The election old under the management of the provincial authorities is the rankest rot ever put up in this country. There is no use of restricting the |ttle of whiskey by closing the bars \ long as the stuff is manufactur-and brought info the province. I the writer con Id stop the sale of lie stuff by turning over his hand, he hand would be turned over be-a man could wink bis eye. Jut it cannot be done so long as are distilleries all over the vorld working overtime. We have calked across the burning sands of temperance legislation in the state 'Kansas, where a man had to valk through nine cellars to get a ilrink of booze, and we never saw much drunkenness and depravi-'befoie or since. We have linger-in the local option towns of inois, where saloons were as icarco as old maid weddings, bnt emperanco did not prevail. On he contrary the youth of the land (rere prone to get drunk on rotgut Hostetter bitters. We have lived in Iowa where a man had to ike an oath that ho loved his lother-in-law to get a drink at a Wind pig, but the consumption of was not lessened or intern-orance diminished. No, these lakeshifts won't do. The way to Ineet the evil, is to meet it in an �pen handed way. Humanity has ndulged in intoxicants since the uice of the grape was drank by 3a3sar as he played his fiddle and vatched Rome burn, and it will done in all probability so long fts man is created in his present lould. Alberta has a splendid [iquor law now, and as a result aen engaged in the sale of intoxi-ite are the right kind, who aim �W;tk \an uf tin- la nil U11U UU> law of decency. This is a law that enforces restriction and does not lcourage hypocrisy and double iealing. As to government control, that is farce. They tried that in South irolina, and within three years it Bsulted in a wholesale grift for avored politicians. Meet the subject in a manly way, make the law ptrict and there will be no trouble. 7o belive in temperance in all lings, whether it be eating, drink-ag, or what it nay be, and as we lid before we vould rather see ^be whole thing cut out, but that mnot be done . i this age and day. friend once sa"l to us, "There is not a brilliant thought in a whole irrel of beer."

Young, local manager of tho Maedonald Company, is a pioneer 'n the country, and last N\ ednes-dny he was reminded that it was just 20years ago that eight Indians, who had participated in the North \V00,0r-ience should bo of some help to me in discharging the duties of mayor. Tho past two years have been very progressive years in municipal affairs. A water system has been installed, which is working satisfactorily, and which is capable of supplying water to the town when it is four or five times as large as at present. This has been done without any increase in the rate of taxation. Indeed, the revenue from the waterworks will, during the first year, amount to over $10,000. a lid we expect that the system will in a short time become self-sustaining. We realize from the water now being taken by the A. R. & I. Co. and the Electric Light Co. a sum more than sufficient to pay for the electric power used in operating the whole system. Wo have been able to close an agreement with the A. R. & I. Co. and theC. P. R., binding them to make Lethbridge a divisional point, and build a new station, freight sheds and round house. TheC. P. R. must also after the first year, have a pay roll of over $10,000 a month. On our part we grant exemption from taxation for twenty years and a rebate on the water used by them. A number of employees of tho C. P. R. will build their homes here and pay taxes, and the railway will pay for a large quantity of water, so that the town will gain by the transaction both in taxes and in water revenue, and at the same time, we expect, become a busy railway centre. If elected to office I will pursue a progressive policy; yet I will not vote for a cash bonus to any corporation or industry, nor will I favor any expenditure which would increase our taxes beyond the present low rate of 17 mills. I will favor municipal work being done by day labor, and the employment of men who live in Lethbridge. It will be my aim to keep all political, class and sectional influences out of the council, and I;Nothing Will Turn A Woman's Head;; ' 't ^aacaoay^^x^xsyssggsSO Completely &S^>x>xx>c^?�z?5z>x>>ttxsxc>c * J i; Fancy - NecKwearii | G, H.

Twenty years! Very few people indeed appreciate what that means. Twenty years of continuous work in the weekly newspaper business in a town like Lethbridge means twenty of the l>est years of a man's life devoted to the upbuilding of a community. Twenty years! The tiles of the News for that period is a personal history of the entire community. Nowhere else is it recorded. Nowhere else can it be found. Tho joys and sorrows of the people, their hopes and aspirations, their defeats and their success, their troubles and their good fortunes are written as they came and went, forming as a whole not only a history of the town but a complete and unbiased history of the doings of the people. Twenty years! During that time, perhaps, there is not a man who has not reason to feel thankful for a kind word, for a line of encouragement, for a boost toward success. Twenty years! During that time the births of those who are now young men and women have been recorded. Twenty years! And during that time the deaths of many have been published with a tear of sympathy and sorrow dropped upon the bier for the lwrenved ones. Twenty years! Anil during that time how many marriages have been recorded, always with words of congratulation and hope for the future? Twenty years of hope, of work, of toil, of encouragement, of all that tends to aid u town in growth, of all that gives to tho people as a whole the news of the community and the link that binds everyone together in the bond of good fellowship and good cheer. There have been clouds of adversity, but the columns of the News always reflected sunshine. There have been difficulties innumerable, but the iviper has always shown the smile of tho optimist, never the frown of tho pessimist. Twenty years of constant service to the town and the people, and now he is going away among strangers. Lethbridge owes "Si" Saunders a debt of gratitude that it can never repay. A debt contracted by twenty years of unabating loyalty to Lethbridge, and her best interests, and the Herald, although a stranger in tho community, would say, "Farewell, Si, and may tho gods of good fortune strew your path with the roses of pence aud prosperity, a reward that is yours for your long service to your people." ........

Respectfully yours, Geosog Kooekk. of course have the same effect on the business all over Canada, u-usterti Pjiniulii csiMiciully. but interest in tho matter locally centres in the business that is coming into life between Frank and the Kooteuay districts of British Columbia. It is a move incut to secure an increase on the luty on zinc'imported into Canada and viewing the question in the light of the facts in the ruse it would seem there is tmall reason to doubt that the movement will terminate successfully and that it will have a most beneficial effect on (he business in the two sections referred to. General Manager G. P. Grant of the Pass Power and Lighting company is now furnishing light to four towns in Alberta and will be soon lighting the fifth. When here Sat unlay, Air. Grant stated that in addition to Frank, Blainnore and Macleod, he has now a plant in successful operation at Okotoks and is installing n plant at Clares-holm which will be ready for oper ationB iu a short time. W. Blair, master mechanic, has moved his family from Blainnore to Lille. Work on the new hotel at Lille and the cottages the coal company is erecting, is delayed by the boil weather. The car shortage is being felt to a considerable extent at Lille, especially by the coke plant, which | is considerably behind on shipments from inability to get enough | cars. Wright Devitt, Charles Pitman and John Roberts sustained quite a serious loss Tuesday from a fire which destroyed their bachelor quarters ut Blainnore. The three wore baching in a tent house and had left what they supposed was but a spark of fire in tho stove after tho lunch hour. No one was in ut the time but it is supposed they left more tire thun they imagined and that the canvas caught. The loss of the temporary habita-, tion was not of great account but in it tho men had ull their effects destroyed. Frank stands iu great need of having something done iu the way of street lighting.
