Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 26, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta NUNflNG CO., LTD. W. A. Backaiu, Mjoiagiuf Director oud Editor. SUSCRIPTION: tn Advance a year thoroughly. He has argument alter esiguiucht of the most effective nu- turo in his speech in favor, of tliis legislation and only the most preju- diced and interested parties will at- tempt to meet his contentions. Mr. Gushing very effectively meets state- ments that the shorter working day will affect the output of the mines by referring to figures from other countries where such laws are" in force. Better work was done by men Other wi33 a year' working under short hours than long ADVERTISING. r e. Stt-OClttl iiours. He was also able to show that the shorter hours did not cause my increase in. the cost of coal and aloo that accidents were not as Sl.GO Per Inch. taider shorter hours as during longer hours. The anoimcement that Mr. Gushing making amendments to the mine regulations proves that the Min- 1'rubably the most public Works and the Al- ture vf the political history of At- torney CmiipbelL of Manito- ba J'or the last year is his silence. Gushing made in support of it wae by all odds the best thing of the session. Simmons also came up like a little man and made a cod- idle to .Cushing's address which sounded like the. real.thiug. Rob- ertson and Hiebort for the oppos- ition were for it strong and the! southern members, although they have not been heard of yet, but by their silence are giving consent. In fact no one seeins to have a word to say against it, as far as cun be seen on the surface. Surface show- ings, however, are not always in- dications, and in this particular case the surface indications are only hiding a pretty sharp struggle be- neath. Not that the government is averse to passing the act. but it is in deadly earnest in its anxiety that it should pass, but for probably the first time iu the history of la- bor in Canada, or for that matter j iu America, we have a government Great Jield In Southern Alberta Farmers of This District Tell Tale of Fortunes Made in Grain Growing Last Year As everyone knows, the harvest in Southern Alberta in 1907 was the best in all Western Canada.

In this case the only clamor that seems to be arising from the out- side seems to be from the operators, and believe me they are hollering for fair. Some of the notes, wires, and messages that have been re- year, has secured the following let- ters, which speak for themselves. They tell the tale of prosperity amongst the men who have taken up agriculture in this section of the .Pro- vince, and if any other part of Can- ada or the United States can beat the record, we would like to hear from Goaldale, Alta., Nov. 19, 1907.

It is free gossip around the lobby and hotels, however, that the operators are after Gross's scalp for the com- pensation act. and that they intend to make a dead set en him at the next election for what they consid- er the most unkindest cut of all; it sisting of 197 acres of spring wheat and 152, acres of oats.
