Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 9, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbridge Daily Herald, Wednesday, February LETHBRIDGE BOARD OF TRADE BANQUET (Continued from front page) VOL.! LETHBBJPGE, ALTA.. FEBRUARY 9 1910 No. 18 1 I The annual presidential address given by C. G. K. Noursc, the presi- dent of the Board of Trade, was as follows: you are doubtless aware the City of Lethbridge has just passed through the most successful year iu Its history. That the citizens are proud of their city and the pro- gress madr during the year goes with- out saying. In every community the I are building up a magnificent city. Our own merchants are not so slow. When was passed around this fall to meet a possible deficit in our funds they responded to the ex- tent of over in one afternoon. 1 propose now to go briefly over SOJHO of the matters taken up by the Board during the year. Mail Service Numerous complaints have reached Hoard of Trade should be a potent fac- regarding inadequate mall deliv tor in the business life and we should eries at points on the Crow's Nes 'acillc Railway and the A. R. and I. Company, but, I am slad to say, that 10 serious difficulties of any kind lave arisen. The latter company las assisted us in many ways', all of which lias been duly acknowledged. Hie C. P. R. have always shown a disposition to listen and grant any reasonable demands we have made, and I am pleased to say they have shown us every consideration. On more than one occasion they have dlspatc'hed one of their officials to! confer with us on matters to whjch we had directed their attention. The only regret we have In our negotia- tions with the company is that we were unable to convince them that It would be to their interests to start the construction of the, Weyburn branch from this end during the com- Appointment N.M.TMK Km a strive to steer our course so that we' lino between here and Medicine I ig year.

CILBEY, of Scotch DEATH FROM HOT END OF A CIGAR Windsor, Feb. a direct re- sult oC placing the lighted end of a cigar in his mouth about two years ago, Frick Fox, president and man-1 ager of the Erie Tobacco Co., is dead. His mouth and his lips were severely burned at the time and a short time ater a cancer developed. Mr. Fox was 45 years old and came to Wind- sor from Leamington. He was the first person to recognize the growing importance of Essex tobacco industry and. established the first factory for each year. We can only do this by jj having the active services of the busi- ness men on the council of the Board or Trade and the hearty co-operation of the business men generally. Possibly if we were not all quite so j prosperous the Board of Trade, as a business man's Institution would be: popular and have a larger mem- bership. There are too many people n Lethbridge who are too well satis- fled with their prosperity and won't ;ive their services or financial sup- port to any organization having the welfare of the city as its aim. This city has a great future before it; there Is no limit to our possibili- ties, and I -would strongly urge all good citizens to give hearty support to such institutions as the Board of Trade and the Canadian Club.. The man vho has some grievance against tue Board of Trade should attend the meetings and let the people hear of them. If he doesn't get what he wants he will feel better for having unloaded his It Is a. pleasure tp record that in the forty odd meetings held during my occupancy of the chair, that we have never lacked a quorum. This desirable state of affairs is chiefly due to the suggestion made by one Hat. This matter was taken up with the C. P. R. and the government, and we believe the towns effected are now comparatively well satisfied with their service. Express Delivery. We were informed by the local Ex- press Agent a few mouths ago that company intended cutting down the limits of their express delivery. After some correspondence with the Company, and a visit from their Sup- erintendent, we succeeded in, not on- ly getting the limits extended to and London Roads, but the number of delivery wagons was increased. i Railways. We have had a large volume of correspondence with the Canadian Skin Diseases. hey will start construction work here f not this year, probably in 1911. On he other hand we owe the C. P.

I am glad to say that very hearty support has been given our efforts during the year by the great majority of business men, but it is to the city council "we are chiefly indebted for any successful results we may have obtained. They have generously re- into chewing tobacco. the manufacture of home grown leaf sponded to our requests for toanclal assistance and as you are aware, without money little can be accom- plished by any Board of Trade.

The Company have also favored us co a very large extent by the er- ection of a monument to their pro- gressiveness here which has excited the admiration of the engineering world. I refer to the Lethbridge Via duct, which is the longest bridge o its height in the world. We en deavored to show our appreciation fo the large expenditure they had mad here by offering to arrange an offl cial opening of the bridge, but th company, with considerable modest} stated it was against their practice t make a demonstration of any kind o such an occasion. Publicity Building. During the year the Board of Trad has erected a Publicity Building o the square, which, we believe, serving an excellent purpose. Inadequate Hotel Accommodation. The hotel accommodation for visi- tors to the City was so taxed early in the year that the Board induced the City Council to provide accom- modation for the overflow in the pub- lia school building. While some com- plaints have been made because this was not a financial success, the board feels it accomplished all that was ask- ed of it. The situation is now reliev- Black t While D. 0.

We have taken up with the Domin- ion Government the question of chang- ing the name of our river from the the question of widening Westminster Road north of the track. The Coun- cil declined to take any action at che time, but we understnd they are again considering the matter. Shortage of Fall Wheat Seed and Sub- Grain Inspector. We took up with the Dominion Gov- ernment the probable shortage in fall wheat for seed purposes, but were un- able to accomplish anything in this di- rection. We also carried on considerable cor- respondence with the Government re- garding the establishment of a deputy- grain inspector at this point, but so far accomplished nothing.
