Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 19, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta PRINTING CO.. LTD. 0. D. AUSTIN, Editor aai Maugen ^W. jiNtDAN. Si^ of Job Dcpartia�iit. SUBSCRIPTION, tn Advanca - l.SO a year Otberwise - ta.OO a year AOVERTISINO Par IConth  !.00 Per Inch ptetent there'ia no proper place for the termers to ezpoae their produce. Ther are compelled to leave their itcams gtanding on tlie Rtreets^and run around looking up people to Sny their bajr and grain. If a piece of ground was put apart as a sort of market-plate it would serve as a splendid inducement to bring all the farmers ef this .district here with all kinds of produce. The farmer is a very important factor in this district now, and he is bcjcoming more important as the ybars iriovc on. He must be treated right and made to feel we ap' predate his presence and are glad to have his trade. In a few year!* this district will be populated by a great agricultural community and Eiethbridge must impress him as the beat market'place in the south country. We must keep that idea ever before us. What the government should do is to' start of! with a-registry office for every' two judicial districts, viz.: One for Lethbridge and Macleod districts, one for Culgary and the Southern half of the Wetaskiwin district and one for Edmonton and the Northern half of the Wetaskawin district. Later in the history of the province there will be almost certainly aeed to be aregistry office in each judicial district. BROAD-MINDED PEOPLE. The Calgary Albertan commends the broad-minded spirit of th^ electors of Raymond in electing a non-Mormon as Mayor of that thriving town. It is characteristic of the Mormon people to treat all creeds on the same basis in matters of this nature. Raymond, which has a very small Gentile population, not only, elected- a Grentile Mayor, Dr. Rivers, but a Gentile councillor, R. -fretting themHeIv�� into nn �nrly grave hankering after so many things that they could just a�, ctisily do without. The more wc ha>V the more we want. The most money was spent on horse fi.Murcs and horse nc-coutretnonts or guns, and many a man was "riding a forty dollar saddle on a twenty dollar horse," real truth in poctrj-.

Mr. Magrath has not yet announced his decision as to whether or not he Will contest this riding in the next Dominion elections. It's about time tot him to fire or give up the gun and let .tomcbudy shoot that will .shoot, if that "somebody" can be found. To say the least, it has placed the Conservative party in what the .1 man from Dixie would call "A sorry Iverr Co. Every hour m every day !^,, ^ powerful hard place." Mr. they are doing something to keep Southern Alberta before the eyes of the public. That's the kind of people we ought to encourage. We believe the Board of Trade of this city could do nothing better than place on record a resolution of appreciation of this company's work. Our friends across the line are turning very strongly against the liquor trailic. Local option is in force in many counties of Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri and other western and middle states and now the despatches tell us that cities of the size and importance of Worcester, Lowell and Lynn in Masssachusetts have voted against licenses. Magrath is not strengthening his cahdidature by wavering. Indecision in a political contest is weakness. most of our disca.'jcs that ure callerl "original sins." Jiut, as Iluskin says, the best work is seldom poid lor and it will prol>ably be a coming race thai will . I tiij pioneer was his sense of humor ANSWER BY THE MORMONS. THE WEST IS 0. K. / A real good newspaper is the Edmonton Saturday News and one of ' ita moti valued contributors'is "Peggy." This lady has many admirers, her writings are bright, racy and full of Ute. Thanks to some wise person's X sugigeation. "Peggy" has compiled a little volume ol some of her contribu-ttons to her paper. Each article is a stioiuUnt, especially to those foolish people who are not satisfied with their lot in the west. "Peggy" sees the be�t aide oMife out here and tells about it In a style that cheers even the most desolate. As a matter of fact, the- lure of the west is real. Very few of us xtouUI want to go back east to live. Alberta with its ; freedom, its graud climate and its wouderful possibilities i.s plenty good enough for those wlio watit to be '"somebody" in this world. Just ponder over the weather we are having now and then think of the winter days in the east. "Peggy" has imbibed the spirit of the west and if her little volume was sent across the meM and into the StatCK as a piece of immigration literature it would be tt magnet. Raymond is going to keep step with Cardston on the electric light question. Our southern neighbor has voted to put in electric lights and we will soon see the reflection in the sky. Keep going ahead Raymond. A LANDS TITLES OFFICE. Probably nothing would impress the Alberta government with the absolute need of a lands titles office in Southern Alberta than the passage of a strong resolution covering the nntire situation hyi/the Associated Boards of Trade at 'the convention here'ncict: month; ' ^^'^Up to'theprescnt the demand has loneers hud some chnrocter and or: iginalty of they vould hftvc waited like others till things Wcte made easier, anad of the fvilow or have been .so far out.

Well, we are .breaking records on a shipment of HeifUzman Pianos, arrived yester-day. Come to our store today ami investigate these beautiful instruments.

In Mncleod riding, of which the Nanton district forms a part, both candidates are old-time residents, and botii enjoy the confidence and esteem of their neighbors. Mer. Her-ron is the present member and has that mueli the lead over Mr. McDonald. But Mr. McDonald is the frtod by the first .settlors' efforts, the -y peer of Mr. Herron in ability and results of which arc, however, to | sharacter, and there is no reason RAYMOND'S MAYOR. If our labor friends persist in their present intentions we will have a three cornered tight for the Commons in this riding. The proposal that the scholars in tlie Sunday schools of the city should unite and make the presentation of some useful gifts to Gait Hospital is 11 capital one. There is no more deserving institution in the city. The uleu will also have a good effect on the children, as it will help them to think of others ul the festive season. Tlio Agricultural Society owes much to U. .1. Whitncj", its retiring president. The Fair this yejvr was the greatest that over was nnd in no small measures was this due to the indofatitwablc efforts of Mr. Whitney. W'ith his strong common-sense, unbounded optiniisni and enthusiasm, and untiring clTopts coupled with unfailing tact, D. J. Whitney stands out as an ideal president for an Agricultural Society. Judge Beck, during the sittings of the Supreme Court this week has impressed the public with his fairness and courtcousnesB. After going through the sugar factory at Raymond, a Lethbridge girl is reported to have said: "Raymond is too sweet for anything." Now, are'nt our Lethbridge girls clever. (Raymond Rustler.)' Here's to the good health, Tongrlffe and happiness of the new mayor'. He may have Rivers of sorrow but his back is broad and strong. He shoold be able to feel the public pulse and keep the body political in good' condition. The coming year will be a busy one for the civic offlcpts of Raymond, and Raymond will d'emaiad much of their time and attentioe. There are some important matters to be worked out and the men elbcted will require to be in the harness early and late. y FUNERAL OF M. BROWN.

(By Wsstsrn Asiaciatsd Prtss) Hughtown, Scilly Islands, Dec. 14. -Tihe American seven masted schooner, "Thos, W. Lawson," was wrecked in Bcrad Sound,' Sicilly Islands, during a severe gale during the night. So far as know only one man of the crew survived. The schooner turned turtle and is now floating bottom up. Three dead bodies have been found of the crew, which was composed of 18 men. often ab.sorl^ed l>y a company that comes along later which has a pull down east. The early shacks were built with logs, then diked with yplit timber and cracks plastered with alkali mud; throwing it in is for sujw ior to trying to!�r it with a trowel, iron and nails ,were scarcto', nnd many an ear,y shack wu.s was easy . for it simply meant turning tlie old hay out uf doors and then bringing a rope full in for a now matti-css. A few boxes from the -store, a nail keg or two, an empty pickle barrel, etc., furnish-of chairs, some split logs made a table. A rough stable and a horso' corrall rmi.sbcd the'eorly ranch. Still' further back a dug-out served the purpose of a house and folks lived down below with the gophers and coyote all in the same earth together. The greatest inconvenience was the termites crawling over evorj-thing. Grub, was about the only thing that cost inonoy and vins all pric^, and some say is yet- K has l)een said that the , most expensive why he should not receive the sup-jort of every voter who believes in he principles of the Liberal party and endorses the administration of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, The News believes that Macleod i,^ a doubtful constituency, and that the contest will be one of principled and not of personalities. The real contest is a year ahead, which will suW'ly give voters time to inform themselves so' they can cast an intelligent ballot. i Merchants lank of Canada HEAD OFFICE, MONTREAL Established 1864 Pnid.ap Capital................................$6,000,000 Reserve Funds................................ 4,036,256 Total Assets.................................. 62,000,000 Savings Bank Depaftment Fep^sits of $1.00 and upwards received.
