Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 2, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta HTHgRIDQE, ALitRYA, SATURDAY, JANUARY 2, IWM. FIVE r MOVING .DVANCEQ VAUDEVILLE, THE THATEN DUO Ads 1 The Broadway Swell and the Bowery Bun 2. The Bogie Man I .'Different Ways of Smuggling 2. Jim Gets a New Job 3. Tulips 4. Perjuries All Feature Prices I5c and 25c Continuous Performance Starting at 7.30 ABOUT.. DAD'S the Lord -Mayor's Son Gee. that was an awful know ,what prices on the power plant. If Dad hears abou it the folks over in Scotland wil know what a "war whoop" sovmcL like. Think of it, over th original estimate. That's worse than a woman's idea of the ultimate cos of a new ball dress. With Past Al dermun Cunningham I believe it is bust to go slow in this matter. Sup ply present needs for a while, anc start to build for a larger city few years hence. It might be we! to allow the plant to remain where it is for a while until we can. see clearlv where we are at. It-was a good idea to send City Engineer Arnold to Toronto. He will find out more about the power plans in a day than a month's correspond- ence would bring forth. If it is 'pos- sible for him to slice the plans so that the cost will not be over the amount the city voted for a power plant it will be all right, provided the plans are not so altered that the original idea would be buried. Bel? ter wait a while aud get what we want than to hurry and take some- thing only fit for a year or two's ser- vice. Davjd King is now a full-fledged alderman. I want him to keep in .a ring by himself, and out of every other for there are always rings in- a. Council. I look to Dave to be the watch dog of the the fellow who will trip up every little scheme that -has a bad look. It would be era; of the aldermen "to be a sour stomach critic. All I expect him to criticize is the things he thinks are wrong and not in the city's interest. Don't vote against .a thing because the uther fellows favor. A greater maxim than that is, Dave, "Don't vote for a thing just because a good fel- low alongside of you smiles and asks you to give his -motion or plan a boost." Do your own thinking and voting. I'll bet a dollar to a snowball in Florida that the 'building permits this year were nearer five hundred thousand than three hundred and thousand. The Presbyterian church, the Public school and the fire hall alone total 'nearly two hun- dred thousand. Look around you and count the new houses and new busi- ness blocks that have gone up this year, and if you don't say there is another two hundred and fifty thou- sand I will go back to school and a course in mathematics. Build- ing Inspector Fowler wants to see that in 1909 that a building "permit is taken out for everything, from a. palace to a henhouse. That's the way they do in Edmonton and Sas- katoon, and it explains why those cities run their building figures up into such large figures. Permits should be taken out before a build-, ing is started instead of after it is up and occupied. One-third off merchants' and busi- ness men's blank books, to clear out this line. J. Johnston.
