Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 12, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta f ill VOLUME VI. Lethbridge, Alberta. Wednesday, February 13, 1913 PRICE-FIVE CENTS Number 53 OES INCLUDE THE QUARTER SECTION IN DISPUTE o- lf Record Doesn't Show it in � Department There is Clerical Error ' Consternation prevailed In Stafford vllage tlio other evening when the published', report was circulated that the' N. "E'. Vt. section 7-7-21 is not a p'art of the village. It was. the firBt time the reove and members of the council had heard of it, and they decided that if what was said were true they had been laboring under.a mls-npnrp.hnnsion ..for a couple of years. Hurried search".was made of musty records, and today'the powers that be in the mining village are woaring sunny smiles, for they claim that they have disproved the allegation. They claim to have proof from official Eources, together with approved plana of the village, showing that the provincial government two years ago added the quarter section In doubt to their limits, and all talk of claims for taxes illegally collected is therefore) without foundation, if the .records at the capital do not show It, there must be a clerical error. In any event, Chairman Wilson claims tlmt the $2,000 mentioned as the amount of taxes on the property in question is far from right. During the time the village has considered the additional quarter in the municipality $78G taxes have'been levied, and the claims cannot amount to more tnan that. During t'he morning the reeve of the village was in consultation with Mayor Hardie, and steps will be taken immediately to establish the fact that the N. Si.-:1/* of .:7 is actually part of the village, thus putting a quietus on the claims made. Opening new Streets One of the difficulties in the way of annexing Staffordylllo to the City of liethbridge has'.always been that-the streets of the village ars.not regular and do not conform to ;thosa of the vcity,,--, 0?o^toeet_llMS'^ Bintef^BIfttiafiafa "with 'the reeve of tho-vlltage^have been, busy during the past thr-eqi weeks, and have obtained "options on all the property necessary to open iip. the Btr.oets to conform with a proper plan. Almost without exception . the villagers have been more than willing'.to help along the step which will make them citizen's of Lethbridge proper, and when the new limits are ratified by the Legislature no time will be lost in setting everything in good-Order so far as the thoroughfarefa are concerned. �$> .> .> # * ? - - '- : PATTEN PLEADS GUILTY ? --�-r-:' � ?

M.-Who will bo the head ol the Conservative party-in Alberta? This is a question that is imitating the minds of all the Con-scrvativus gathered in convention hero simultaneous with the opening of itho . provincial legislature. E. E.
