OUR SPECIAL NUMBER j Today marks another important j tune in the history of the Lei-h- j bridge Herald, for today the Her- j aid issues it? first speciru number, j Money, time and labor Have been j generously expended in order to make the edition a success. Tine t Herald believes that this result j bf-en attained and is confident that; the public will concur in that opin- J ion. The Herald ha? always endear-1 ored to make itself the recognized; tritan oi Southern Alberta and if that} position, had not been already attain-; eri. there is no doubt but- what this j special publicity number "would havej the paper in tlie coveted j place. I The value or such a'i issut- dealing! as it does with all parts of the dis- j triet and with all. branches of the j iife of the country, can hardly be j estimated. The gratification that thej Herald feels in turning out such a j is not therefore entirely selfish, for it feels that- in so doing it. is per-j 'forming a work that will be a great j benefit to the part of the province j which it more particularly serves. UP TO THE PEOPLE NOW j The dissolution of the Alberta Leg-i islafrure announced yesterday does! not come as a surprise to either par- ty or to the people who do not pro- fess allegiance to either of the old parties. It was the general opin- ion that the government would go to the country as soon as the session was over. date is particularly j suitable to the southern part of the province as it will not- be long after the campaign is over before the peo- ple would be too busy to devote the time and attention to the election j that is necessary to a satisfactory re- sult for all parties. With the records the proceedings of the legislature fresh in the minds of the people the government followed a commendiably sensible and fair course in ordering a short campaign. The work of the.Legislature during the past four sessions and-the admin- fstraiion of.the government since the formation of the province Added to the policy announced by the govern, ment isill provide ample material for legitimate political discussion during the period of the campaign. The Government goes to the .electorate confident that their business-like ad- ministration and their progressive 1 policy -will meet with the approval} of the province. I OUIt POINT OF VIEW The Calgary Herald calls Calgary the Hub of Alberta but neglects to announce that Lethbridge is the main spoke; The best in the world is Alberta Bed. Our American friends have to i admit it. Lethbridge, or Southern .Alberta, can't afford to turn down the can-1 didates.. of a Government with at Build-Up-Alberta policy. Thank 'goodness, the election cam-j paicn will be short, we hope, j sweet.. i The Herald is a wee bit puffed tip.; today but you can't blame us. j The candidate most likely to win j in Rocky Mountain constituency is a; mountain member of the; Alpine club. Watch Lethbridge grow. Against .the world.. Alberta Red i CALLED M. P. A WHALE J Ottawa, Feb. A.
