Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 16, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta Page 4 Momlay, Dcceinher 10,1912. LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD �TABkltHKO DICKMMin ItOT �iiklMt)td by the Lattibrldg* Her�i� PubUahinfl Co., LW., �very IwM Vtnlni tt. Iti ���, Sixth ttraet, Cathbrldae, Alinrta, C�na��. W. A.

Th�lr citizens believe In boltig right ifp-lo-date. � Quit Stumbling Along in the Dark THE FACTS brought by General JIanager Reld of the Chinook CoUl^erles regarding the waste of slack coal fuel from local mines should be carefully studied by every member o� the Incoming council. His statements bear the stamp.of prac^ ticabillty, and while other methods of making use of this fuel other than that propounded by him might be considered better after further investigation, nevertheless he has shown a way out of the power dllB-; culty which confronts Lethbrldge whenever the question, of an industrial policy comes up. But there is no use in the council sitting back and talking of what imight be done with this slack coal. , They must find out exactly what can be done. Medicine Hat does not think It can give free gas; it knows it can, and that is the reason MedicinQ Hal is giving' Industries. And to find out just what us� may be made of the alack for manufiac-turing purposes, it appears that the only'thing to do is to bring In an expert. When a factory is not paying, and the management does not know the reason, they bring In experts to find the weak spots. Thei weak spot in Lethbrldge's .campaign for far is that we have not yet learned what are our strong points.. Hire an expert-gel a good man and pay him his price. Let bltn put u� right, and then we will know once and. foi; qll whether Lethbrldge can cvjer'become the manufaoturlng centre It' seems destined to be. i^iv ing in hope may be alright, but it Is not Ih-Ing"in the 20th century. The Industrial policy was made au issue in the^ municipal campaign, and the Herald' does not propose to allov^' the 1913 council to forget Jt. i Encourage the Boys THE ROYS of Lethbrldge form an appreciable percentage of Its population, and all schemes In their Interest are worthy of public : support. And when the support desired Is moral rather than pecuniary, there is no excuse which can be raised i for not entering into the spirit Of � movements made for the moral and Intellectual welfare of those wbo will shortly liecome responsible citizens.' Such a movement la one just fn-augurated by the Y. M. C. A., .an4' .' known as the Boys" Hobfiy Show. It � Is Intended to hold an exhibition to-' wards the end of January, consisting � of the handiwork of boys of the city. � The calls for Ingenuity and application are various, and Inoludo in their � scope many U8efu.l objects for indus-' try, such as Carpentering, .Woodwork, Carving, Designing, etc. There are �also awards for what is dear to the minds of most boys, Collectlona, ' which Include stamps, coins, natural history specimens, and so on. Exhibits are also called for of pet anlmala, ffom dogs down to pigeons. Here a wise provision is made for atlmul|it- Ing kindness and humanity to dumb creatures, which should form the � traits of character of every right-minded youth. � ' The entry classes are scheduled to Include boys from under 13 years of age to those over 10 years. To ensure success the movement requires the patronage of parents, and they can do. m,uch in-helping it by giving their offspring^ the necessary encouragement. The scheme has been well devised tor furnishing occupation and pastime for boys, and at the same time it brings out what is best and latent in the youthful mind. H will serve to cause lads to spend their spare time at hoipe, and to keep them from IdaTln'if'sSiid Idling in the streets. It will, likewise. Instil a worthy spirit |of- emulation amongst them, and teach boys to depend on themselves tor amusing themselves during their leisure moments. It will be more profitable to them than reaitlng trashj' books, on which a good many are apt to depend for amusement and relaxation! Every parent of boys should bridge ig doing now, they would bo saved from a reputation which still clings to them/ l^ws and Tcgtilatlqii, for the moral welfare of a nation ahould be iinlforra. There should bp no dividing line between En�t and West in this resiiect. If old-time spirit Is to- prevail It meant a clog to progress and development OUR POINT OF VIEW Who mentioned Cnlltornln? The Utflo old gambling bylaw Una passed out of existence. Its cause appears to he doing likewise. It mi^y be that the gdniblers Will yet be sorry that they had the city bylaw: quashed. With so much slack coal going to waste It looks as If someone was mighty slack not to. have Invented some scheme to lUllize it to advantage. That the mines use it to develop their own power Is proof of the pudding. Mr. PeJleiier, who wept salt tears during the aoiKxal election in Quebec over the participation of Canadians in England's wars Is apparently developing into an ardent imperialist.-^Olllce has sonielbing to its credit after all. The Hordeu naval policy is In keeping with the wishes of the wealthy manufacturers of the east. Sir Wilfrid's is more palatable to the virile sons of the west, where a man is taken lor what he is, not because he has a long line of/credit. Tho mail who drove forty miles to soil 201) chickens in U>thl/rtdpo and failed to accomplish bis mission will wish the citizens would display n little more of the spirit of the south. Upon tho peace contorcnce now slttljiK m London rests tho onus of deciding for a cessation to war or the precipltatloii of awful carnage In Europe. Tho C. P. R. is putting on an urquiul-the-world trip starting April 1 next. But just because thoy can tjiko one round the globe, they needn't think they own tho whole universe. What Lethbrldge needs Is a public market. The incoming council should not overlook this tact. But they must renierabc* that a commifaton house for handling nuirket produce la a necessity in connection to make tho venture pay. The Calgtlry papers are gloating over tho time when the C, P. R. will enter the Brazenu coal Holds so they can get a conl supply. It's iiectiHar how atudlo^aly tho Calgary folk avoid any niontldn of Lethbrldge. Even Calgary dOes not use moreS than'lOOj-000 tons monthly, the amount mined in this Immediate district. And wo occupy the proud position oi being only 125 miles from that groat and glorious burg. However, we donsole ourselves over the fact that Calgary once brought several hundred tons of coal from Wyoming.

There are very many citizens \yho are prominent in nhq town affairs, who exorcise a great Interest in the welfare of the municipality, who en-en contribute Indirectly to a great extent to the revenue of the town, hut who are disenfranchised because they do not happen to own any projfcrty.

A little encouragement goes a long way. The Y. M. C.A. Is doing a great deal for the moral uplift of the boys of Lethbrldge. It ia engaged In a moat laudable task, and its work Is as much for the benefit of parents as for the boys themselves. All It needs Is cooperation, and this should come forth spontaneously. "The Spirit of the West" IN ALL CO.MMUNITIES there is found a certain section who, eveii if not directly interested, arc apt to kick against lUlempts at reforms. Tho reasons gtinerally put. forward for expressing disapprobation are those which havo in them the votieor of plauBlblllty, but this does not make them any the more sound. In this part of the Dominion we iii'e apt to hear a good deal of the eplrlt of the West, with tlio liberty which is claimed for It. Unfortunately, tho few who place stress on this Bentlment are led away by the glamor OL a word, and do not pause to give It the consideration 'which it de-servos. Thoy do not realize that tho West is in process of evolution, and having thrown off Its swaddling clothes is well on Its way to deliver itself from tlie wild and .woolly re-' port with which It has been accustomed to be associatod, and which la atm held with regard to it in some places outside. AVe refer to what some choose to call the Introduction of eastern methods In the regulation of the moral tone of ithls city.

There has been more work "done on the roads In 1912 than In, any two years since the Cardston district wiis organized. At Magrath and south of Raymond ftvc-outllts have been busily employed on the roads while V-000 haa been spent on the roads east of Coutts.- A new,steel bridge Is being put in at Milk River station, while another such structure is being placed at Ashe's crossing 21 miles enst of Coutls.

Liberty in this case spells licence, for it allows praolicea which have been declared unlawful in all clviliv-ed communities. The countenancQ ot such on thP sole plea that it is in keeping with the western spirit would be enough to turn Lethbrldge into a city of retuge tor the worst element in the (�onllneiit. -Surely, no one Interested in the weltiiro o( the city would wish it to earn thig opprobrium, purely foi- the sake of a meretricious idea.

The Anonymous Writer (SImcoe Reformer) A number of newspapers in Ontario have decided to no longer publish the communications of anonymous correspondents, and thus put "Ratepayer," "Pro Bono Publicq," etc., out ot business, If a similar policy had been rigidly adhered to in the long ago there would not have been no ".lun-lus" letters. There are undoubtedly times when resort to anonymity is both Justltlable and desirable, but, on tho other hand. It is often resorted to in order to mislead the public or to indulge In personal attacks from under cover. It would not be wise to.insist that all letters intended for newspaper publication should be signed by the real name of tho writer, but no self-respecting publisher will permit the newspaper which ho controls to become an instrument for the venting ot private mallcp or for unfair attack.

"Was it as big aa my two Bsts?" "It ban bigger." "Was it as big as my head?" "It: ban about as long, but not so thick!'.' replied the Swede amid the laughter of the court.-Saturday Evening Post.
