Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 10, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBR1DGE HERALD - HUNTING CO., LTD. W. A. IUCHANAN, MtBifl�| Mrwtor. W. JOWaN, Sast at J* BtMrtiMat. ; i \ SUBSCRIPTION: in Advance 91.50 a year 2.00 a year ADVERTISING: ^riklonth . ' 1.00 Per Inoh UNWISE MEN IN THE EAST Many of our manufacturer* In tho cast are still sleeping. Their vision docs not jot reach beyond ttoo bounds of Ontario. They knov little or nothing about the great population In tho Canadian .West. What is tho mult? Today many wholesalers in this country cannot get � supply of staple lines of goods. Only the other day we were toM that 4t was Irn-posslblo to got certain lines of articles fiom Ontario manufacturers. Their output has been consumed bo-fore the winter was well advanced. Tho trouble with tho Ontario manufacturer Is that he Is afraid tc turn out from his factory, any more goods than )hj Is Certain he sees a market fcr, when he starts to mas* thein. He fails to rvaHro that the country is growing and that there are thoummis more mouths to feed and bodies to clothe, than the year befdre. Unless Ontario wakens up tho trade of this country will inevitably turn to tho 1'nHcd. States. 'Elgin. , The feasibility of procuring power from the river here. Is being talked about, around the cHy, inspired, doubtless by the presence of C. V. engineers, who are invostigivting preparatory cun tii mined had an acceptable candidate been In thctVold against him. Partisanship In municipal polities got a body blow in Toronto last week. A city government conducted on party lines is nearly always rotten to the core. B.a;ough the cartoonist, has tx*n elected to the Toronto CHy Council Now that he has entered public life he will haw to undergo tho penalty ol being "cartooned'' too. This year the provincial govern -meat operated thirteen creanmrlcs with a total butter output of t ,0,*0,-580 pounds for the rix summer months netting at tho cream!ries the handsome sum of #133,070.77, |jjv -ing an average price of 91.338 (vnts per |>ound at tho creameries, vlildi were patronized by 1756 patr.�is. This is a good showing. It Im to be hoped a creamory will soon ho established here. It will be sevn it would nven a nice revenue for our farmers. Remarkable railroad development took place in Canada in 1000. over three thousand miles were constructed at a total coat of 863,01)0,000 The C.P.H. spent $28,000,000, the C.N.It $15,000,000; tne O.T.It. $5.-000.000, the U.T.P. *7.CV0O,00O and the Great Northorn $10,000,000. T The It looks as though thero was going to be "somethln' doln' " in the new Council this year. transportation facilities in the at the present time are par-aVized. True the weathor conditions are not helpful to the railroads, but ( _ even oiler granting that, a'closo In-1 ^_ . ^ligation into the transportation j The Major s speech was a gocd problem of .this country will convince jonc. , people thai the railroads aro not ,,,.mj.ii,, i  �. j. i. >___Another problem in transportation abte to handle the great and growing! 1 T � business of the west. Tho construction of new lines is making tho situation woWo Instead of better, for the reason, that rolling stock and motive power that is absolutely re- , ^ (asl , , to n�Wt vh0 quired to hamile tho freight on exist- ft^^. of thc8ratlroRd wrccks |to*iay are duo either to the amateur lis the inability of the railroads to I get iiHii to operate their trains. I The development has been so fast, I that qualified engineers, firemen and o|>oralor�. especially, have not been ing lines, is being taken to the new tranches and consequently centres Mke I�thbridge have to-�ulTcr. No one objects tc thu opviuhg of the entire west to soltlcmciH and no one disputes that railroads are neces -sary 'n that work, but tho Dominion government should mo to it, that r.o railroad is giv^a n charter for extension on a new line of railroad unless i^guarantees to provide sufficient rolling stock and power to handle the buslnoss. Hukv the penalty for failure to do this, a loss of the charter- � On the .CP.IV at the present tiroa, and we presume ii is true of other western roads too. freight, is bound up so tight, that many linos of business aro crippled for the want of goods. If the railroad provided sufficient pow�r ami cars, they could easily remove this complaint. But no. they must build branch lines, to get. into  now country, forgetting � that they are neglecting the portions of th3 west that are already settled. The rallrcad, as we remarked before, should he compelled to guarantee their ability to handfo tho business in old as well as now lines, before f*hey are given further charters. The Dominion government can make it  aoH-.strong by having such a clause inserted*' in every railroad charter. CITY ENGINEER. The lieiakl is entirely in accord with most of the suggestions in the Major's speech. Especially do we favor his argument for a City Engineer. If Lothbridgu streets, sowers and water-works are to be constructed in a way that will bo a credit to the city in after years, an official, trained in this class of work, is absolutely necr-sHary. He could also re-littvc the present city clerk of some cf his numerous duties, for if ever a umu> had a lot of work to do, it is O. B, Dov-man. The-Herald has a mun in view for the poaition of City Engineer. It is A. M. Grace, llu ,, not only thoroughly capable, but ho understands conditions hore better than any other man we could select. The position should be offered to him. --� NAME IT LETHIMOGE. Merchants am* manufacturers of Dockford Illinois, advertise their . cHy by prefixing to their firm .name that of Rockford. thus, "The Hock- lanl-M'f'g. Co.," or "Tho Uock- jokj_-Milling Co." A word to the wise ia sufficient. Rockford now holds second place with arand Rapids, Mioh., as the Jarges^ manufacturing point in furniture. It ia popularly known in HUn-%�> / M "mauA Lynn" * which Majtee to its commercial activity. '�Tfi'wi in addition to its 85,000 peo-^ple;* furlhvr Swedish population of T|fl,0Q0, A groat many of its manu-Saeiorle*-aiy operated by water pow-^ which ia obtained from the Rock * v�r, dammed at that point. It i^^ht.lar^att f�W*�.h�I>u l log plant* in the country nnd i|^tghhor of that other fanwua land Abutter' producing c4ty, who Is operating tho train or to overworked employees, who owing to the scarcKy of u*>n are given too i much to do. The Schcol Board found J. H. Fleetwood worthy of re-election oh chairman and the citizens are in accord with their action. Mr. Fleetwood does not look upon the office solely as an honor, but gives clone attention to the schools and is wide awake to every movement' toward* improving the educational faoilitiea of the city. Lethbridge is destined to he a very important railroad contre. Very few people yet realize the extent of tho C.l'.H. operations horo. The fact that ths capacity of the rotind houso is to i*> enlarged proves that they have bigger plans in view-, than had been anticipated. Again, the location of a superintendent and do  spatchers here, establishes tho fact that this Is to lie a divisional point of the first rank. No doubt within a few years the C.P.R. will have several roads branching out from this city into the country north and east of us. Lethbridge is bound to forge ahead at a wonderful rate this year. A keen, American business man, after visiting all parts of Alberta made the remark the other day that Lethbridge waa bound to be a bigger city than Calgary He claims there is more warrant for rapid growth here, than any other place in j the province. Tho cvnsus shown Northern Albert* has more population than Southern Alberta, The naxt census will tell a different story- Southern Alberta is being settled rapidly and te a few years it will double, yes treble, its present population. Tho Toronto Olobo is very bitter against W. F. Maclean. MP. Maclean is a radical and a lighter nd he makes enemies easily. The Olobe is criticising hint hotly and one of tho recent editorials contained tho fol -lowing red hot paragraph: "The Question is asked:- How comeB it that this man regards every other man as a traitor or a thiet? And tho answer Is: Ho Judges them by what ho knows about himself. Ho knows tnat there never was a trust imposed In him which for a price ho would not betray, and very few which he did not betray. And ho knows that his own word "cheat" would fittingly apply to himself in his relations with the public, and especially as a member of Parliament." Billy Maclean has his faults, but he has many good points too, at least, he 'a the champion of good measures. Whether he ia genuinely in earnest or only anxious to stand in the limelight, he alone can tell. Maclean's opposition to railway donn *J�*$Ml �H>ne i� � foou, VHH ,or Canada. "Too many of our public men acetn to he too willing to giva the big monopolies a free har.d and Hon. A. 0. Blair Is trying to gain a fcolholct as a Liberal leader in New Drunwirk again. Mr. Blair's politics wore never, of a staple character. The Montreal Herald recently remarked: "He was at the top of the wave in Now Drunswirk, when, just ten years ago, Sir 5lackcnzio Bowel! wuh hunting for Cabinet material after the Nest of Traitors episode. It has been said, nn;l never explicitly denied, that Mr. Blair |Kar-v was Invited by Sir MacKetir.ic to i1"1''' take part in the Irish lace Her hat was of cream embroidered chifTon, with cream oRtrich plume.-.. tMie carried a -bouquet of pink rosc-v The groom was supported by his brother. \V.

The bride's going away gown was of navy blue apollo silk, a long coat of tan chiffon .broadcloth, a blue velvet .toque hat, and a mink set of furs and muff, the gift of the groom. Among those from a distance present at tho wedding were Mr. and Mrs. P. Navin, and Miss Joslo Navin Moose Jaw, Mr. and Mrs. J. Scott. Crnnbrojk; Miss Vangie Navin. Oil  Morris Navin.

Bote, MP. stated that he understood that a bill would be introduced by tho Dominion government during the .present wwslon dealing with the question of homestead- \ ing. Thero were, in the west some 170.000,000 acres of habitable land. Of this 40,000.000 had already been honMstceded, and 82,000.000 taken up by railway grants, while 25,000,-000 wero marked off to the Hudson's Ray Co., school lands, etc., Icav -ing a balance of TU.OOO.OOO acres. He understood that it was the intention of tho government in their hill to throw open tho odd-numbered sections for homesteads, and also to allow new settlers the privilege of preemption, a privilege that would also be granted to sottlers who had already hotnosteaded hut had not previously had that right.
