Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 21, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta VOLUME VI. TEN PAGES Lethbridse. Alberta. Friday, February 21,1013. PRICE-FIVE CENTS Number 61 \:\\ 'hi') V INDUSTRIAL POLICY WHICH SHOULD APPEAL TO MANUFACTURERS CARDSTON FAVORED WITH MAGNIFICENT MORMON TEMPLE FOR CANADIAN CHURCH SITE OF�TEMPLE TO BE ON Wi SE E BY TH CO SETTLERS Will be Located on Com-illevation Beside Cardston Tabernacle COST $200,000 President E. J. Wood Going to Salt Lake to Complete the Details Cardston geta the tomple to be erected la Alberta, for Canadian mem-l)f rs of the Church of Jesus Chrigt o� lAtter Day Saints. - There has been koen rivalry be-'itw�on Cardston, Magrath and Ray-mop^ tar the big building, but the pioneer settlement ol Mormons in Al: �bertajSwon out, and the other towns will no doubt loyally fall In line. TheneWB was confirmed by President E. J. Wood, of,the Alberta Stajte,^ who was called up by the Herald'tOr: day. . Mr. Wqod .Jjas the official decision straight .from the^ead of the church at^Salt JUike City, _and next month Coesto the uffih; metropolis, to--confeir; with the dignitaries, and to complete nrrangements'for tlie starting of work this y�ar. When Mr. Card, the �lde�, and other pioneers of, the church, settled at Cardston, along Lee's creek,' they at that date had a prophetic vision that eome day, tho church would flourish �in this' country,' and would have a temple of. its own. With his vision . growing daily, they set asida a,slte on a pleasing eminence in Cardston, and on that site the temple will li& built. It Immediately adjoins; the present new tabernacle at the oliUrch at Cardston, �ThO'plans for the temple, will be comipleted when President Wood goes to-Salt Lake. : The elevations have been decided on, and the plans are euEtlcIently  advanced to rev�al a etructure of massive' proportions, and one which win be a" credit not only to the churchvbut to the province. It i'wlU; cost'between one and two hundred,thousand dollars, likely much nearedi to tbe latter amount, when completed.' ;� What It Means Tfifl significance of the temple will tneanvthe centralizing of the church functions in, this country, and obviating the necessity iOf^ long and expensive trips to Utah to enjoy those, rltea of tho.,ohurch-which :can only be administered In, the temple. Matrimony 1b one of the rites' 'involved. The placing of the temple here will tend to permanency of residence, in this fiountry, as it will tend to do away with the looking to -Salt Lake City as the mother �huroU In: a Jarge sense, although,, of .course, - the head of trie chu-rch will always be located In that city. . By having tlieir religious as well as commercial ,Interests centred here, it ie thought that it will maka the people satisfied and more completely round out ,their lives'and thus tend to permanency of settlement in Alberta, K-� SOMETHING TO OFFER MANUFACTURERS ^sIhARES TOOK A BOUND London, Feb'. 20.--^Furness, Withy & Co., ;Ltd;, shiires: made a; rapid Sipurt today when: conftrmation was received that the company liad'secured the contr.olling Interest: in the Richelieu and Ontario Navigation Co. . :� : ' . V" - * >, towards assisting'poor','worklng - .people'rto emigrate. - Last year > (P> ^ 0 ? * ? ? >> Congratulations to the 1913 city council. The power policy adopted last night is one well designed to place this city in a position where It can compete with any in the Dominion of Canada in�ofar as Inducements, to manufacturers are concerned. The city has niade'all possible concessions short of a bonue and reliable companies with'*fj'""'clal backing are not looking for bonuses. The price of power makes the inducement here quite as strong as free natural gas and there will be no expense of installing boilers and other expansive machinery sc necessary with the use of gas. Exemption from taxation for ten years is a very generous concession, but will doubtless be,heartily endorsed by the ratepayers. The city will, more than gain In the distribution of wages and the establishment of this city as one of the leading manufacturing centres in the west. It is also good business to offer light and water at cost. These are favors, but they are favors which more than pay their way. The city council last night did a great night's work for Lethbrldge. The next step is to-.oarr.y'these inducements to the manufacturers. Let them see and know what;Lethbridge has to offer and with the decided advantages we enjoy In the way of a desirable city for residential purposes, with good schools and up-to-date parks and other attractions, it should oertalhly prove a big factor In throwing the scale In favor of Lethbrldge when the manufacturer starts in toweigh the advantages.,, Lethbrldge, the city offering the ohe�jest power and the greatest advantages of any city. In Western'Canada, is a good enough slogan and it's a slogan based on actual fact, , L OUT Fllfi �filFlFfilEt fOAHO^ QU'Ar'aNTiKIED BY CALI-POkh-A 'and . pest': HAS APPEARED IN UTAH Farmers in the alfalfa belt east and south of Lethbrldge are,warned to be on the lookout for an .af-falfa weevU which has just been discovered in the State of-Idaho. It was not known until just re: oentiy that there was suoha'thing as an alfalfa weevil, but the quarantine issued by .the Department of Agriculture of the. State of California against Idaho alfalfa entering that state has.caused a furore among the farmers in the border^ Ing states, and commissiohe are now busy making a thorough In^ vestlgatlon. ' " A. E. HumphrlisB, Immigration inspector here, has Just returned from Boise^ Idaho, and- canries the warning to alfalfa growers In Southern Alberta, He says ; he does not, know much about tK-e destruction caused by the weevil, but If California considers It of enough importance to impose a quarantine, it must be serious. He suggests'that the "alfalfa growers of the district bring the': matter to the attenion 'of the departments of agriculture^, as, ^wjth new settlers coming in every_day from, Idaho, It woiiid be very: easy .to introduce the weevil In Alberta. It Is feared that the weevil has also spread 'to the stkter of Utah.

Opposition leader, Mr. Michen- cr, and various other members were absent, no doubt taking a vest. Nineteen bills were given a Secoud reading, none oE'them being; questioned or spoken to,' tiie house merely nodding its assent a.s titles of bills were called. Almost a like number were-read the first tune, including two government measures, an act relating to small-;, ditches and village accounts.

' Hon. Malcolm-McKeiizie replying to Dr. Uuthcrford stated that he had raised $7,400,000 by way ot a Joan on: the credit of the province by virtue of chapter 12 (second session) istatutcs 1910, by treasury hills. In a further reply to Dr: Rutherford Mr. McEenzje said that $400,000 being a porti6D\of the proceeds of the Alberta- and Grreat Waterways bonds, was not standing to the credit of the pro-vinoial) treasurer in'' the Dominion bank, but bad lieen paid into court. The -rate of interest allowed by the banlc was 3,v , per cent, and the amount of interest standing to the credil/ of the provincial .treasurer was $46,1)57.33, Neither was the sum of : (Continued on page 8.) manufacturer who Is bent on establishing a plant In the West, he will be able to address him in the above terms, Lethbrldge has a real industrial policy. After three years of waiting, the city council of 1913 took the bit in its teeth last night, and egged on by the Board'of Trade and the North Lethbrldge Business Men's Association, sue-, ceeded in evolving an industrial policy which can talk of its.ov.m accord. Lethbrldge is out for industries, and IVIayor Hardie has a free hand to.go after them, if he needs any aid, all he has to do is to call on one of his trusted lieutenants. The adoption of the new industrial policy, even to the new rates on power, was unanimous, and the expressions of satisfaction utteped, by members of the council were equalled only by the confidence-expressed that the action taken last night would be productive of good results,:: LBE THAT IS REPORT SENT TO WASHINGTON BY UNITED STATES , /CONSUL LIGHI IS m Washihgton, D,C, Feb, 21.- Francisco i, Madero, deposed president of Mexico, will not be rall-rioaded to Jail, thrown into a mad house or summarily executed by provisional .president Huerta, According to reports today from Ambassador'Wilson, Madero, the Ambassador reports, will be given a fair trial, and possibly the worst fate that will await him will be exile.
