Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 10, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta .ETH'dRIDGE HERALD S' '-tPSON & BUCHANAN Publishers f E. SIMPSON W. A. BUCHANAN yuBSCRlPTTON: Adv-auce - $1.50 a year  iierwise - 2.O0 a year ADVERTISING: >"et Month - �1.00 Per Inoh THE Cin OF LETHBRID6E. The 1906 coxincil is on the right track. The action taken at last week's meeting towards securing; the incorporation of Lethbridge as a city is to be commended. It moans more than providing us witli classification in the same column as Calgary and Edmonton Once we become a city prestige is addetl. Outsiders are then convinced that Lethbridge is growing. We have been a town long enough and if we remaineti one, the opinion might easily be formed that wo hadn't grown euoueh to lie anything else. As towns go, we over-ehadow every other town in Alberta. We have outgrown town clothes. Lethbridge is big enough and is sufficiently certain of its future growth to don the garb of a city and strut about in the compiuy of Calgary and Edmonton. We are now the hub of Southern Alberta but when we become a city the hub will look bigger in the eyes of the people who are turning to the West for location in the near future, than we do now. What is our population? We never amountetl to much in guessing contests as to the number of beans in a jar, but we are prepfired to stake whatever reputation we still possess in the prophetical line, by asserting that Lethbridge todny has mighty close to 5000 ijeople in its confines. Probably before we get fairly started on the city road we will be able to turn the 6U00 comer and in five years time we will be strutting about claiming title as a metropolis. By all means deck Lethbridge out in city costume. It will not do us a bit of harm but, instead, will raise xis considerably higher in the eyes of the world. We do not want the lift merely as an advertisement, for we have everything to warrant our creation as a city. Watch the city of Lethbridge grow. ness section and tliey ought to b forced to move at once. They have no more right to wash and iron clothes in a shack in a residential section than a grocer has to soil groceries or a butcher meats. Nothing will injure our residential section to a greater extent than permitting laundries to exist at the very doors of our homes. Pass a bylaw at once, Mr. Councillors, and , force the Chinamen to do business in the business section. EDITORIAL NOTES The Bulletin is keeping paio with Edmonton's growth. A Cox duplex press, the first one in Alberta, has boon installed and the paper enlargotl and in many ways improvetl. Billy McAdams. the breezy reporter, lately from B. C. is brightening the local news pigi'S considerably. The new "Westminster school is a monument to the forosi"ht and good judgement of the school txaartl. With confidence in the future of the town, the trustees erected a building capibleof accouiotlating a constantly growing school jxjpu-lation. While only two rooms are occupietl now; in a years time, it is safe to say, the other two rooms will be filled with scholars, too. A street sprinkler seems to be required more in Lethbridge in the winter than in an eastern city in the summer months. AN EXPRESS DEUVERY. There is enough express business in Lethbridge to warrant a delivery of parcels to and from the trains by the Dominion Express Co. Other towns of equal size possess this accomodation, and why not Lethbridge, the third place in sizw and importance in Alberta. When the new station is completed it is unreasonable to exiwct business men to send over to that part of the town for their express parcels. But even with the question of distance obliterated, this town is large enough and is the centre of sufficient express business to warrant a delivery system. The company would find that the provision of tlys convenience to merchants and. all classes of citizens, would develop th 3 express business sufficiently to cover the additional expense, in the first year. The Herald will make it a point to bring this matter before the Dominion Express authorities. We have an uptown telegraph office and we are warranted in asking for a delivery system by the express company. The merchants, botird of trade and, in fact, everybody, should push this idea along for all they are worth. The faith that our people have in Lethbridge is evidenced by the preparations that are being made to invest large sums of money in business blocks. Nothing will impress the visitor more strongly of our substantial foundation, than the appearuice before his eyes of imposing business blocks. No better ad. for the town can be had than good school buildings. They appeal to the intending settler a good deal more effectively than we imagine. Laird is angry because he was Bole-d out of Regina. High River has been taught an expensive lesson. A town of its size and pretensions should possess fire protection. Not a moment should be wasted in ordering an engine and hose. A town whose own citizens think well enough to invest money in its industries need not worry about its progress Lethbridge is such a place. If you don't think so, just ascertain the names of the men who have money invested in the Iron Works, the Alberta Brewery, the Electric Light Co. and the steam Inundry and you will find they all belong to Lethbridge. There is nothing slow about the newspapers in the Kootenays. The Cranbrook Herald,Phoenix Pioneer Feniie Free Press, and Nelson News all issued holiday numbers that outshine anything of the sort we have seen from Eastern Canada. We paid our tribute to tha Cranbrook Herald last week, and since, we have been favored with copies of the other papers and, like the Herald annual, they make us admire the enterprise of the fellows in the moimtains. All the pages of these editions are original; no importations from jobbing houses, but reading matterand advertising, put together in the respective towns. Western papers are up-to-date. MAKE THEM MOVE. The town council would, we believe, meet with the approval of the citizens if it passed a bylaw confining the Chinese lanndries within certain boundaries. To our mind, the Celestials should not be allowed  to carry on business on residential streets. At the present time the "washeo" men have their signs hanging out on streets that are not in the business district at all. This is objectionable in many ways, and certainly lessens the value and attractiveness of property in localities where considerable money has been invested in erecting substantial homes. A man has every reason. to object to a Chinese laundry being located alongside liis residence. There is plenty of fodm lor these fellows in the busi- No town in the west can provide cheaper fuel tor mannfacturing piirix)S08 than Lethbridge. Slack coal can be delivered to the factory door here at less than half a dollar a ton. Calgary is making a proper complaint against the decision of the postoffice department not to send b mail on the new morning train to the south. It is easy to understand that towns on this line would prefer a morning mail to one that leaves Calgary at 7 o'clock at night and is unavailable to the public until the next day. HERALD HAMMERLEH.

Sillack, Lutheran pastor, with headquarters at Medicine Hat, was in town Sunday and Monday. He spent two weeks at the Estonian settlement, twenty miles west of here. In a talk with the Herald he said that he found these Riissian people, who settled there two years ago, flourishing. They were making money and improving their farms. He told of one man who had built a frame house, 50 ft. long by 26 ft. wide, and of another who had erected a modern windmill on ins property. A church has not been built yet, though the Lutherans number 63 souls, A school is about to be opened in this district Mr. Sillack says his church will not accept state aid of any nature for the erection or maintenance of schools or churches, though they favor church schools. "If Rockefeller was to offer us his entire fortune we would refuse it," he declared. '(As to our teaching, we preach the gospel of the Bible just as God; mve it to us; no higher criticism for us" was another point he emph-asissed.  ;' Mr, Sillak b'slid n service for a number of Oermans, employed at the mines, on Sunday, I Lethbridge A City ^ Well, we carry now as extensive and varied an assortment of Jewelry, Watches and Clocks as any jeweler in any city in the West.
