Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 27, 1905, Lethbridge, Alberta iKTHBI 9 t. E. 8IMPS' Si I Advaace tlierwise UCHANAN tiers \V. A. lU'CHANAN .PTTON: �1.50 a year �2.00 a year Lethbridge is the centre of Southern Alborta, in ovory way. Wo uiv surprised that Judge Harvev does not move ]>oro ami ' \ make this the judicial headquarters. ^ The judge is a fine Fellow and should be living in our growing town. ADVERTISING: for Month - S1.00 Per Inch LETHBRIDGE WILL GROW. Hockey is being played at Winnipeg these days, but here the weather is only lit for baseball and lacrosse. Will Lethbridge grow? Yes. It is growing and has been growing. Nothing will keep it back. It is uot a boom town, for which we all ought to be thankful. But in t few years time, with the develop ment that is going on in Southern Alberta, this place will possess (3000 or 7000 inhabitants. The settlement of the lands in the vicinity, which is taking place steadily with a goal class of people from the United States, Eastern Canada and England, will bring grist to the cash boxes of our stores and compel them to enlarge and employ more hands. Then our coal area is being opened up and the growth of mining towns like Tabor means much to Loth-bridge. In what way you may isk. Well, the more towns that spring up in Southern Alberta, the more merchants the wholesale houses of the town will have to serve. Leth-bridge is bound to become a distributing centre of importance. At the present time we supply most of the places in the district and naturally this business will expand as the country settles up The location of the divisional point of the (.'. P. R. here will add to our prestige and bring a lot of new residents as well. We have good reason to sr.y "Watch Lethbridge Grow". An-other circumstance that impresses us with the pn sent stability and bright prospects of Lethbridge is the investment the banks are making in projierty. The Bank of Montreal and I'nion Bank would not erect costly buildings here unless they ex|H'tted the town was going te^ uinourt to soinethjug greater than it is noli-. ^-fr^^Tjwrrationv^iiK^^cos^of three or four timfesHhe size iu the. East do uot possess nearly as s\ib-stantial bank buildings, a n d business blocks, as Lethbridge does today. Edmonton and Calgary are be'iim boomed. Lethbridge is not, yet it is growing steadily. Let us. as citizens of this fair town, take prid in our home, and its resources and advantages, und kec p them befon the public, and people will soon learn that Lethbridge, as tho centre of Southern Albert i. has just as bright a future as Calgary or Edmonton. The Eye Opener expects to announce in its next issue that "Your name is Dinnis." Down East people shiver when they think of Lethbiidge; yet if they came out here they couldn't find ice for curling or snow enough to make a snowball. With cheap coal and competitive freight rates, manufacturers should jump at the chance of locating in Lethbridge. The eoinixisition of the new-Alberta Legislature1. 21 to 1. is like the tally in a rural baseball match. C. Iliebert. of Rosebud, is going to be in trouble when lie holds the first Conservative caucus. Who is going to second his resolution that lie should be party leader? The bank managers To lend oney at the old rates. Sir Thos. Shaughnessy. of the ('. l\ H. To make Lethhridge a railroad centre of importance. The CP. R. Station To be the finest on the Crow. U. B.

Dr. DeVeber's name is being [H>rsistently connected with r viuco a little over a year. The West beats the East in more respects than big crops and a tine climate.

ITALIAN IS NOT DEAD Miner, With Broken Leg, Is Recovering. Last week we announced that Baroldi. tho Italian miner was dead as the result of injuries sustained at the mines. The climate of Sunny Alberta works miracles and this week we ;iro able to announce that Baro'.di is alive and is improving daily. Very soon the Italian will be able to be out. and if he cabs around at the lletwM Palace, we will supply jiiin with a |xiper containing his obituary. Very few men hare the opportunity of reading the announcement of their death. Baroldi only had one leg broken. He 1ms Wen receiving the best of en re and medic-1 attention at the hospital. The mine authorities take the greatest interest in the care of their employees. N NOUNCEMENT Mason & Piano Co.

John Bridge, of Magrath. was in Raymond last week, the Chronicle reports, looking for coal miners. He is negotiating for a lease of the Russell mine on the St. Marys river at the mouth of the Pot Hole. The Mntkin Bros., of Magrath. are prosecuting work on the Houk properties a little farther up the river. Cabinet Minister Dead The death of Hon.

As a divisional centre it will be the uIkxIi of trainmasters, despatehers, con ductors, brakemen, engineers and firemen. What better place could they find to live iu than this enter prising, up-to-date town? None What better class of men could Lethbridge possess as citizens than these. uumV None! When tin railroad boys locate here, it should bo the duty of every person to make them feel right at ease, so that when they are on the road, they can tell the traveling public tho man who is spying out the land and the iwople ot the places through which they pass that tho finest town in the West is Lethbridge. Give the new coiners a hearty western greeting. This town has all to gain by treating the railroad men well. We have seen every town of importance in Alberta and uot one of them makes as good an appearance as Lethbridge. for its size. Imagine how fine we'll be in a few-years. Edmonton may become the capital of Alberta, but Lethbridge is and always will be the inotro-jwlis of Southern Alberta. Lethbridge needs a grist mill and the people of this town are ready to buy a Lethbridge brand of (lour. It is a little early to talk about it, but '"better now than never." Let ub have an arbor day next spring, when the citizens can all get busy aud pltint trees about the town. Nothing will beautify the place more than well shaded streets It will bo a few years before we nap the benefits, but the harvest will be worth waiting for. A HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR TO ALL.
