Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 14, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta rage 10 T1T13 LfeTMBKIPflE DAILY HERALD Saturday, II Spring Coulee Farmer Would Like to See Blood Indian Reserve Utilized Editor Lethuridfie Herald; a careful study of the conditions of the Hteod Indian Itcserve it scams that neither the Indian nor the white man are getting the hest results that it is possible to obtain. While it is the duly and undoubted- 1y the intention our government to do nil in ka power to holp the Indian to a higher plane of civilization and I intelligence, to make them mentally, i morally and physically better, i quesUon often comes to tho writer, I is the use now made of the roserve the best for all concerned? It would seem that there IB a hotter of handling the reserve, hotter j for, both the Indian and the white man. A plan that 'would produce a much j larger income to the country, aud provide employment the .Indian, teaching them to labor, to make use of their time, and showing them that they are.helping tho white man, and that hy working together each may obtain profit from the other. Instead of leasing the reserve to I n 011-residents, could it not be used to tnuoh. better advantage, and be made !to produce far more wealth by adopt- ing; plan: JluUe the j reserve -the herding ground for." LUe I entire surrounding- country, make the Indian tho herder, the caretaker of the stock. Under this plan many of tile farm- who no summer range could place their stock on the reserve from j April to November, taking them to their fa nil B after the threshing IB done for ,the 'Winter months, where i the finishing'of the matured animals he done, with profit. to the in- j dividual farmer and the enure coun- j'try. In this way the reserve would pro-! vide summer range for a good many more stock thati are now kept upon 11 It, as it must now provide both suim-j i iner and winter food for ihe. limited number cf stock kept there the entire year. Under this plan every farmer could j become n stock feeder. Consuming i ihe rough feed of the farms now largely wasted, taking care or tho frosted or in any way prainj continually being shipped ovit of the' country ar prices too low for profit. Under this pJan many thousand j mere cattle could he annually finish-! eel ami marketed, finding employment J for hundreds of men, making farm lands more fertile, more productive, and providing stock in sufficient quan- tity to warrant the building ot" ins plants in Lethbridge. The consumers arf in ihe west; make the country produce slock to the limit; the packing house, the tan- nen" and the manufacturer of leather goods follow. The reserve I'oitld'be divided into i several muler ihe direction f of the 'Indian and the Indians i might be-the caretakers of tile stock. Xd person should be allowed 10 '.take stock off the reserve except nt i stared times when ihe slock should j he rounded up for that purpose. The government might provide high i pradt? beef type sires to be kept, en the reserve entire year under the 1 care of ihe Indians, hi ihis way the breeding could be done at the proper time, and ihe country would soon producing uniform stock of the best quality. One of the bt-ef type breeds should be gplecied, ir makes but littlfi difference which :iru] a ti.ved fee charged for each female placed on the reserve. H. A. Spring f'onlee. Alia.
