Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 17, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta .MHBRIDQE HERALD �' '/I?SON �S: BUCHANAN Publishers t E, SIMEON W. A. BUCHANAN ".ij BSCRIPTTON. i Advance - �1.50 a year 'M^rwMse  12.00 a yenr ADVERTISING V\>t Month - *1.00 Per Inch NATURE'S GIFT TO ALBERTA. The strongest nrsrunient in favor of Banff as the capital of Alberta is the beauty and grandeur of it location. Most countries sock to make their capitals beautiful, or to locate them in places which natun has endowed with threat scenic ad Vantages. A capital located in a beautiful spot does not lessen tin cost of government, but a capit-d beautifully located is a treasure tt the province and a pride of tin people. The United States create*' a capital on the virtually unin habited banks of the Potomac where Washington, a capital city soley. not a commercial city in any rosjx-ct, stands, the pride of tin American i>eople. Washington was founded as the capital a tic since that day has been develo]x-e gardener in beautifying a park or a great estate. So we say. let Alberta's capital be at BantF. which nature has endowwl with a fortune of scenery unequalled in the world. Let us have a capital there that for commanding situation and attractive arrangement will excel any capital in Canada, yes. any capital on this continent. Ontario's parliament buildings udorn a beautilul park. Quebec's capital is situated on a lofty location overlooking the St. Lawrence. British Columbia prides itself on the Iteauty of its capital at Victoria. Take our own Dominion. Have you not often admired the judgement that was displayed in selecting that striking site, on the banks of the noble Ottawa, with a setting of the Lanrentian hills in the distance, significant of the groat timber wealth of the land, to the other side the Chanliero fulls emblematic of the water power facilities of the land and then facing the noble site of buildings, the peaceful valleys, telling of the agricultural greatness of our country. But far above these capitals Banff would stand. Flere just at the entrance to the rolling prairies of Alberta, would be our capital, situated at the foot of the great mountain peaks, and close to th shores of the winding and rushing Bow. What greater asset would Alberta want than the location of its capital in this magnificent spot': Nature has given us a si>ot for the most strikingly beautiful capital in America. Let us cast off the claims of Calgary and Edmonton, who merely seek the prize to add to their prestige for the sake of th dollars and cents it may bring them, and rustle for Banff. meut we can offer to settlers than our climate, tt is not to b equal-lud in the entire Dominion. The farmers in this fair district do not have to wade through snow drifts or put on a heavy overcoat, when they go out to do the day's chores. But instead a balmy atmosphere greets them almost every day. Nothing would appeal to the Eastern farmer more strongly than t he weather conditions which bless Southern Alberta. Let us encourage all the railroads that propose to enter this district. Let us act as missionaries foi Southern Alberta. When you write a letter, put in a gocxl honest word for Lethbridge and the country round about. Let us work together as business, professional and working men.with the great idea in view of making Lethbridge a substantial city and Southern Alberta the most prosperous section of the province. Railroads and settlers will conn to a country possessed with people who are enthusiastic anil progressive. JOIN HANDS AND DRILL. It is important for the welfare of this town, soon to be a city, and Southern Alberta that railroad development should be encouraged. Sooner or later a line will be built from here direct to Calgary. Already a new railroad is seeking incorporation with that in view. Lethbridge's duty now is to con-tinually keep this section of the province before the public eye. Just at present, the boom ut Edmonton is drawing attention to the north, and, while Lethbridge and Southern Alberta should frown on u boom, at least the class of booni which Winnipeg experienced some years ago, still it is necessary that the resources uud prosperity of this region should be legitimately emphasized in every way possible. Southern Alberta, with the introduction of new railroads, would, we believe, offer as great inducements to the settler, as any section of the province. Farming on the' irrigated lands has been a complete success and the men who have located on what are known as the dry lands are not grumbling but are flourishing. It is not alone tho duty of the government and the Irrigation Co. to promote settlement, but us citizens we should persistently boost the district and the town. Edmonton is succeeding after following a similar course. To our mind, there is no greater induce- A NEW JUDICIAL DISTRICT. Sooner or later, new judicial listriels will be created in Alberta. Already the Southern Alberta district is too large for one judge. Lethbridge is the hub of a populous section that can keep a judge busy and if the southern district is to 1m.* divided, this town is entitled to be the headquarters of the new court. EDITORIAL NOTES Here's our hand. Mayor Rogers, you're the right sort. That Winnipeg interview is worth many lollars to this town. We should dl aim to keep Lethbridge in the public eye. Hustle that grist mill scheme along. Let us have it oj*-n for business at harvest ti,n\ Prepare to plant more trees this spring. We would like to see cement walks in front of all our business blocks. They serve as a good ad. for the town. The more railroads the merrier. Edmonton is supporting Calgary's claim for the Dominion exhibition. Calgary would much rather have the northern city's support for the capital. Watch Lethbridge grow. Raymond has a high regard for the Gait hospital. We trust the ball they purpose giving in that town for the benefit of this worthy institution will be well patronized. Southern Albeita has no greater asset than the (Jalt Hospital. Wherever you go, boost Lethbridge. HERALD HAMMERLETS. You never know how many people want to treat you until you swear off. Toronto spends four millions a year in booze.

The condition of the fall v\ heat of Alberta today is declared to be excellent. C. \V. Rowley manger of the local branch of the Canadian Bank of Commerce, has received �ord from a large number of places and it is most favorable. The acreage is largely increased as compared with HMi5. and the pmgess of the plant is good in every instance. From Lethbridge the report asserts thai the fall wheat acreage is heavy, and as a result of recent snows, in very favorable condition. Prom Xanton the fall wheat is a very fair average. High Hiver is not quite so optimistic, the re|)ort saying that the wheat has not secured it good start yet. except that on the summer fid-low, whi'-h is most flattering. I) is six inches high on summer fallow and quite .igorous That ja.t in after September 15. however, is not so go-.(I. A favorable spring, liowi-ver. will result in a large crop. Macleod reports a splendid condition and prospects of a fine yield. At Clan-sholui. one of the "Alberta Ibil" districts in the west, the condition is most satisfactory, the plant is strong and making excellent progress Much snow has fallen then-, which is good. At Piucher Creek everything is reported progressing with a largely increased acreage and prosjtects of a huge yield. Two feet of snow fell in that district in December and much of it remains as a win in. wet cover for the growing grain.
