Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 22, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIBCE DECEMBER 22, 1909 5K i I i I I s I All growing cities pass through similar stages of development. Within the memory of the present most of the larger cities of the Western States were but frontier villages. Anyone who then prophesied their future greatness was classed as a mere dreamer. But we in Western Canada today have the ad- vantage of their example before our eyes. We may act with confidence upon our belief, knowing that it is not mere guesswork, but rests upon the firm foundation of the accomplished fact. Nor Is this all. Southwestern Canada began its growth after the perfection of the Railroad. Its development, therefore, has been and must continue to be much more rapid "than its prototype of the States.- Watch This This is the fourth of a series of articles in which we are outlining from day to day the causes which indicate that Lethbridge is to be one of Western Canada's great cities, its increase as com- pared with other cities, its funda- mental resources, its certain des- tiny in the light of the past and present and the course which this growth and must take. __ In making this comparison between the States and Canada there is one distinction to be kept in mind. It is this: The Canadian prairie extends much farther westward than that of the States. This.not onh- increases its area, but brings the fields nearer to the Pacific Ocean, the ocean that Trill bear the great commerce of the future. Then the products of the Canadian prairie will tend to flow westward far more than is the case in the States. And then we should expect to find its centre of population occupying a much more central po- sition. The Canadian cities that correspond with St. Paul, Minneapolis, Omaha and Kansas City, we should expect to find near the western border of the prairie. SUCH IS, IN FACT, THE CASE. Every city of Canada occupies a more westerly position than thp city in the States. LETH3RID-E, "THE GSTY OF COAL AND WHEAT, has this advantageous westGrly location. St. Paul and Minneapolis rank great i ail- road centres. They are served by some fifteen or sixteen lines. Kansas the southern railway centre of the middle western States, has about an equal 'number, Within the next few years LETHBRIDCE will be reached by at least FOURTEEN lines of railroad. Every factor necessary to its growth is there- fore present. To attempt to give a definite figure for the in- crease of a city is always a difficult matter and al- ways open to possible criticism. B-jt, judging by the examples we have cited, cohsidaring the size and wealth of its surrounding territory, consisting its commanding location and the lines cf transportation now focusing upon it, we believe it to be a very conservative estimate to say that LETHBRIDCE, BACKED BY THE L.ETH- BRIDQE SPIRIT, WILL DOUBLE WITHIN THREE OR FOUR YEARS AND THAT IT WILL ATTAIN A POPULATION OF A HUNDRED THOUSAND WITHIN FROM FIFTEEN TO TWENTY YEARS.
