Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 2, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, JANUARY 2, 1914 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE NINE i W FELL UNIIL MARCH 'KOOTENAY" BROWN RECALLS THE YEAR 1877 IN THIS COUNTRY Canlsloii, Aiiii., ,Uiii. 2.-TUo semi-atimial orKaiil/.iilici ineRtliiK O'f "The BentliKi'ls," llic [iiliill Hibln class o� St. Aiidi-ewH Prcaliytmliin cluircli, waH hold In the church on Tuesday night.

The Indian a^ent -on the Blood re-Bervo in liis last rencrt to the Do-partmont of Indian affairs states that the general liealth of the Indians has been good during the past year. No contagious dlKcaa(!.4 hiive been present and those ailnientH rotiiiiring most nttciiitlon were intestinal troubles during the summer and bronchial during the winter. W'l Indians were vaccinated during the yeaT. It is said in tlie report that tuberculosis is not by any means arrested anions the Bloods. The reserve physician, Dr. Edwards, hius takemi all precauti-:->n, however, to instruct those livJng ndlacent to such cases what measures should bo adopted to prevent its spread. The Indians, says the a:?en(, are .paying more attention to malting their Iiomes and surroundings more attractive and clean, and I are not so much given to overcro'wd-Ing. The Indians have been giving more attention to buildings. There are now upwards of 200 dwellings of log st;ructure and 15 of frame. They have 75 borse stables and 100 cattle tjtables. Tlie reserve has a splendid hospital situated at Stand-Oft on the Belly river and conducted by the Sisters of Jlercy of the Roman Catholic church. The institution is visited regularly by the reserve physician. Two isolation wards provide for contagious cases. The Cardston creamery continues to turn out great boxes of butter. On the last day oC the old year Mr. Mcintosh churned nearly 1,000 pounds of butter. Last month the total ran up to 5,2S0 pounds, which is 1,580 IK)'unds in excess of December 1912. Tliere is abundant lindicatloni in these ligures that Cardston district is going into mixed farming in ea.rnest. The creamery year ends with this month, and a meeting of patrons and stockholders will be htld shortly after at which a statement of the year's business will be given. The excpptiona'ily mild weather of the last montli has brought fO'rth some comparisons with othe-r Alberta winters. Spmo of these have appeared in the press and have come to the notice of John Geo. Bpowin, superintendent at the- Waterton Lakes park. In a letter to the Herald cc-respondent Mr. Brown says: "I have seen in some of the papers that such weather as 'we ai*e having �was never known in Alberta beloie. This is (I mistake. In 1877 and 1888 there w-as just such a winter. Thesi were the years the buffalo left the country. Not a hit of snow till March 15th, and then not very much. I v/andered around betweew the Sweet Grass Hills and Fort Walsh in tlie Cypress mountains in a wagon all the season with my wife and three litfle '.drlldren. 1 was huntin;;- and tra.pping. It was warm all the time." What might have been a serious fire smotliered Itself in the small Jiours o;'. Jlonday moniing. It occurred in the pool parlor of Mr. Jordan and Its origin is a mystery. Mr. Jordou was in the building at one o'clock In tlie morning and there was i:o Biign of Are thou. When he opened his place of business oni Jlonday about 8 o'clock the walls 'were covered with soot, and the floor charred In places. How the lire occurred is not known. January 2nd, 1914 January 2nd, 1914 At the l)eij;-iiiniiij�' of si New Yeiir we aim to impress on every piircliaser of a motor ear-yes, on every citi/eii-how much his own personal interests.arc advanced l)y the development in Canada of a manufacturing^ enterprise of the size of oursw � The i>uildiii^ up of suc'li an industry requires years of time and large expenditures of money, but it has a real value to e\ery citizen to an extent that few realize. ..y,,,^..: ,^1^^^,^ , $3,711,532 in Wages, Materials, etc. In llie past Iwo years this Company lias out f'of wages and salaries in Canada the sum of Jj!l,()7(S,i;i2.0(). In ils own sliojjs and olliccs it has directly employed the year round an avei-age of 1,240 people. This is only part of the employment aii'orded. Although the Company manufactures the greater portion ol' ils cars, it buys raw materials and su])-plies ouLside, such as lumber, sleel, rubber, rubber tires, bodies, leatlRM; ler upholstering, for belling, oils, gi-eases and lubricants, copper, brass and alnminum. electric lixtures, glass, plate glass, brushes, brooms, factory supplies, liuilding materials, structural steel, hair for upholslei-ing, can-va's, bolts, nuts, screws, machinery, paints varnishes, catalogues, printed matci-ial. elec.tricily for power, gas for lighting and manufacturing purposes, and a host of other minor items. So great a volume 'do these attain, thai in tiie two years, our purchases amounted to the sum of ?2,0;^3,-100,00, distributed among 1,011 Ciuiadian corporations and firms. Made Up to In other words, this Company (hd an average bu.s- Down iness of over $2,000.00 each with more than 1,000 Canadian corporations and firms. Supports 8,000 People This means that our industry has been and is responsible for the employment of approximately eight liiindred more work people in the other offices and factories in-Canada, Irom whom wc buy. Add these to our 1,200 employes. That makes a total of 2.000 people in employmertt in Canada as a result of our factory. If, as is genei-ally assumed, one worker supports, on an average three others besides him .self, this industry is directly responsible for the muintenance of 8,000 people in Canada, and the relenllon in Canada of over $3,700,000.00 of money, the larger part of which would have gone out of the country had the goods been imported instead of made here. A New City KNIGHT The area of the Cily of Torolito (roughly) is M .square miles, or 21,-ROO acres. The population in 1912, according to the Police Census, was 425,-000, or 20 inhabitants per acre. In other words, an industi-y of our size is responsible for the population of a district comprising (roughly) 400 acres, poj)ulated at the average density of the City of Toronto. If this business is developed to double ils present size, it means the addition of another 8,000 people to the country's population. It means a new town in CEHiada larger than any of the following: Collingwood, Lindsajs Orilla or Osh-awa, in Ontario; New Glasgow or North Sydney in the East; Portage la Prairie, Prince Albert or Medicine Hat in the West. � Is there a public coi-poralion, manufacturing firm, merchant, newspaper, real estate dealer or professional man who does not, directly or indirectly, benefit by the growth and extension of such an industry? Other manufacturers .should consider -what it means to them. Not a few of them may be seen riding down in imported cars to meetings and conventions to boost the sale of "Made-in-Canada" goods, in w^hich they themselves are intei'ested. Is their position sound? What is the Conclusion? Should everyone buy a car from our company because it is made in Canada? No! They should buy the car which suits their requirements, which, according to their peculiar needs offers the most for their money. But this much we are confident, is clear frdm the above, viz: that before they send their money away, they should try the car produced at home. We have no quarrel with the man who looks over our goods, and, not finding "what he wants, buys elsewhere. But are the hundreds of citizens fair who, because of old prejudices, carelessness or for any other reason, purchase cars from abroad and send their money, made in Canada, to the building up of rival cities across the line, without inspection or test of that wliich is now produced at home. a Standard, to a Price. We have only one request to make, viz: That you who are in the market for the season of 1914. resolve that before piuchasiug elscAvhere, you will inspect and try the car in wInch you have such a dir-" ect interest.  ,.�....... This is all Ave are entitled to. A mjlnufactiu'er in Canada has no right to expect more. Nor do we. The Russell car has been developed to a point where it asks no favors. Steadily, year by year, there have been built into it qualities of excellence of Avhich many who purchai>ie outside have no conception. We must secure your business on merit alone. We expect it on no other basis.

The report most i fretiucntly heard was that, as a first !step the firm would give up the trus-I tceship o� several- corporations in-; cUuiing the Southern Railway com-! pauy. No conlirmation of these re-; ports could be obtained prior to to-j day and in fact, it was understood 1 if any action of this kind were tak-!en,it would be in the shape of resignation ti'om time to time of var-ous members of the firm whenever the ioccasion was presented, j No such blanket withdrawl from no ; less than thirty corporations had ' even "been scented at and JMr. Mor-' gan's announcement created a sensa-jtioh such as Wall street has rarely i experienced. I In spite of the large number of re-|signations announced today, Morgan [ and Co. are still represented on the boards ot a number ot iniportant corporations. The only effect on the stock market ot Morgan's announcement was I to bring trade virtually to a stand-i still. When the news was flashed by ' telephone and news tickers to the stock exchange, brokers dropped their \ business and tor some time the ex-i change was practically given up to ' discussion of the announcement fyhicli, probably, was a complete surprise to every man on tlie door. The announcement had no effect on the market. Even the stock of corporations most directly connected with the. House of Morgan, did not vary in prices.
