Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 4, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbndge Dally Ilerald, Friday, February Daily Herald Established December, 1907. Published by the Lethbridge Herald Printing Co., Ltd., every lawful e.en- Ing at its office, Crabb St., Letbbridge Alberta, Canada. W. A.

WEEKLY Published every Wednesday in eight pages, and contains a summary of the world's uews of the week, local and foreign. J mined effort was made to stampede (tlii-m for Si nator Casgrain, who claim- Jed to be of Hit1 ir blood, while Dr. Guer- in is not French. It was the regular turn for an English-speaking mayor to be elected and the French people gave him a majority. In addition to this the leaders of the "twenty-three" were Rrencu. and made frantic appeals to wiOir racial prejudices in order to se- cure a vindication from the charges nude by Judge Cannon in his repoA. English, and French alike casting aside all other considerations, stood together for reform and clean government. OUR POINT OF VIEW The Herald's publicity iiumber will a greater than has The C. P. R. brought the city boilers from Montreal in nine days. The city offices will now be besieged with busi- ness men wanting to find out how it was done. Keep the date in mind, Lethbridge fair, August 9, 10, and 11. Prepare now for the exhibition.

THE SPECIAL NUMBER In yesterday's issue the Herald made an announcement of its regular annual special number. The first at tempt in this line was made last yeur when the Herald special publicity number was the biggest thing of ita kind ever published in Alberta. The many favorable it and the fact that the whole issue was sold out before the demand on the day of publication was satisfied are evidence to the publishers that the issue was just about, as good as it was big. Gratified with this success the Her aid determined to make the special number an annual affair and hence the announcement that the 1910 number will be published about the middle of March. Tiie value of such a special number as a means of advertising the city and surrounding country is acknowl- edged by all to be very great. Busi- ness men have found out that adver- tising in such an issue brings big re- turns The publication of such special num- bers involves a large expense on the part of the-Herald. The editing of the paper, the-photos, cuts, and tiie me- chanical work in connection therewith run up into a lot of money The Her- ald, however, emboldened by tne gra- tifying support given its issue last year, feels safe in undertaking the ex- penditure The preparation of the special num- ber this year is in the hands of Mr. J. Ju. Man-waring, who is well known in .oethbridge and the surrounding coun- try, as a newspaper man, and as one thoroughly conversant with the affairs of the district and well Qualified to prepare an edition that will be credit- able and valuable The number will contain many fea- tures that are out of the ordinary in the preparation of special numbers. The Herald is confident that the pub- lic will await the publication of tbo issue with interest and will then be well satisfied with it when it is pub- lished. It is now expected that Europe will get all excited over the fact that a few Cretans prefer to visit Greece rath- er than Turkey. Bonar Law's Retort Probably more good stories are tola of .Mr. Homir Law limn of uuy of the politicians of first either sidc 01 the House of Commons. At the time of the hist general elec- tion, Mr. Bouar Law was speaking in Glasgow uud happened to refer to the attitude Mr. Halfoi'.r then took on the fiscal question. He pointed out thai the "English people love compro- and instanced the course taken by Henry V11I. at the time of the Re- formation.

FROM OTHER SANCTUMS THE INTERCOLONIAL SURPLUS Hon. George P. Graham, in givin his report on the working of the Inter- colonial railway shows a surplus of nearly seven hundred thousand doll- ars. The Dominion government thus has been able to wipe off th'e last of it deficits. The regular Foster deficits changed to Fielding surpluses of ever increasing size right from the start. The regular Conservative post office deficit was speedily changed to a large annual surplus. It took a long to work out a system of operat- ing the government railroad so as to make a political railroad a business railroad. But apparently it has been done. Last year Mr. Graham put the road under the management of a business commission and the road has been run as a business proposition and nothing else. The result is the sur- plus, the first recorded in the history of the road. THE ...ONTREAL ELECTIONS The clean sweep made by the re- form candidates in is indeed creditable to the people of that city. Not one of the famous, or rather no- torious, "twenty-three" who were op- posed to all reform, if indeed they did -not take a share in the graft so scath- ingly condemned by Judge Cannon. not. one of them was elected, and some- even lost their deposits.
