Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 27, 1905, Lethbridge, Alberta .ETHBI D H HERALD F. E. srMPS': 1 Advauce therwise Jo ucha.nan ners W. A. BUCHAXAX :ptton: 1.50 a year �2.00 a year Lethbridge is the centre oil Houtliern Alberta, in every way. We are surprised that Jiidgc I Harvey does not move here and j make this tlie judicial headqnarters. Tlu! judge is a fine fellow and should be living in onr growing town. ret ADVERTISING: Month - �1.00 Per Inch LETHBRIDGE WILL GROW. Will Lethbridge grow? Yes. It is growing and has been growing. Nothing will keep it back. It i.'; not a boom town, for which we all ought to be thankful. But in n few years time, with the develop, ment that is going on in Southern Alberta, this place will possess 6000 or 7000 inhabitants. The settlement of the lands in the vicinity, which is taking place steadily with a good class of people from the Uniteil States, Eastini Canada and England, will bring grist to the cash boxes of our stores and compel them to enlai^c and employ more hands. Then our coal area is being opened up and the growth of mining towns Uko Taber means much to Lethbridge. In what way you may isk. Well, the more towns that si>rin.-w' to the Herald.

ITALIAN IS NOT DEAD Miner, With Brolien Leg, Is Recovering. Last week we announced that Baroldi. the Italian miner was dead as the result of injuries sustained at the mines. The climate of Sunny Alberta works miracles and this week we are able to announce that Baroldi is alive and is improving daily. Very soon the Italian will be able to be out, and if he calls around at tho Herald Palace, we will supply him with a piper containing his obituary. Very few men have the o[)portunity of reading the announcfmeiit of their death. Baroldi only had one leg broken. He has been receiving the best of care and medic;! attention at the hospital. The mine authorities take the greatest interest in the care of their employees. Cabinet Minister Dead The death of Hon. Raymond Prefontaine has occuretl in Paris after a brief illness. stantial bank buildings, business blocks, as Lethbridge does today. Edmonton and Calgary are being boomed. Lethbridge is not, 3'et it is growing steadily. Let us, as citizens of this fair to^vn, take pride in our home, and its resources and advantages, and keep them before the public, and people will soon leam that Lethbridge, as the centre of Southern Alberta, has just as bright a future as Calgary or Edmonton. MAKE THEN FEEL "AT HOML' Lethbridge is to become the home of railroad men. As a divisional centre it will be the abode of trainmasters, desjiatchers, conductors, brakemen, engineers and firemen. What better place could they find to liye in than this enterprising, up-to-date town? None! What better class of men could Lethbridge possess as citizens than these men? None! When the railroad boys locate here, it should be 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, the man who is spying out the land, and the people of the places through which they pass that the finest town in the West is Lethbridge. Give the new comers a hearty western greeting. This town has all to gain by treating the railroad men well. EDITORIAL NOTES The dark horse didn't win in Kinistino, Saskatchewan. Somebody remarked that if Dr-Shadd was elected iii Kinistino, Sask., that he would be tiie first negro ever electeil to a Canadian Legislature. That may be the case but a colored gentleman, W. P. Hubbard, is a member of Toronto's Board of Control, and draws a salary of S5,000 per year. He is one of the best men in Toronto's city council. We have seen every town of importance in Alberta and not one of them makes as good an apiJear-ance as Lethbridge, for its size Imagine how fine we'll bo in a few years. Edmonton may become the capital of Alberta, but Lethbridge is and always will be the metropolis of Southern Alberta. Lethbridge needs a grist mill and the people of this town are ready to buy a Lethbridge brand of flour, It is a little early to talk about it, but "better now than never. Let us have an arbor day next spring, when the citizens can al get busy and plunt trees about the town. Nothing will beautify the place more than well shaded streets It will be a few years before wte reap the benefits, but the harvest will be worth waiting for. A HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR TO ALL. Boost Lethbridge. The electors of Saskatchewan ehouldcut politics out and commence Bhovelling the snow off the �idewalki. New Year Resolves. C. Hiebert, M. P.
