Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 17, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRID6B HERALD raiNTING CO., LTD. W. A. BUCHANAN, Manafiof Director. W. JORDAN, Sapt. of Job Dcpartaeot. SOBSCRIPTION: :Iq. Advanctf  91.50 a year Ot'i iwue  92.00 a year ADVERTISINO; rer Uontb - SI.00 Per Inch AmrUOE TOWARD RAILWAYS. Tlia C.P.n. or any other railroad thould be wuQuragod in all efforts put forth to niako Lethbridge a :l�rge milroaO ccntro but that cn-Coun^geiutiit should not be so far raachlng as to allow corporations to trample on our rights or stifle criticism of wronff duins. Tfca Herald believes the C.\r.A. is lioing and can do, a great doo.1 to-,war;:� adv-ancin^ Lcthbridgo. Tho city (Jiauld deal with the big road M genjrously as possible but it Would ije foolish to follow a "lay down" policy and allow it to run tba city. It has not attomptod to do 00. but it the advice of some people wero followed it would be given a,tree hand to do nearly as it liked. Xtfthbridge wants to avoid being a corporation controUod city. Encour-Offing a railroad or any other in  Utution is a diderent matter to band njj the future of the city over to It. Lethbridge should watch ev-, . '!> move the railroads make in or- ! ''"^^ " * ren.lnder we might rder that the interests of the city '^"^'on * l^aseball match took place hould be protected. On the other P"'^"^ � W> ri^''^^ haad it should offer cncouragannent i mdDjr. And why should not the Oovemmcnt of All)o^ta take up this matter and if what EC?nis to be the reasonable conttntion of the uitners, can be enforced, by law, without to any extent iinpot^iiiX a hardship up-o>n the general public, and without inju.slice to ihe operator.s, then the tiiue Is opportune to re-enact the eight hour law. It is true, the Miners Unions of the Crow's Nest Pass led by 8hcrman, have oflfercd the most bitter opposition to the supporters of the Al -bcrta government on every occasion, but this same government have already placed thL-mscIves upon record, to the effect that tne favorable or adverse attitude of any class or constituency, will not in the least affect or influenco the governnwnt in carrying out what they deem to toe in th3 public interest. The Liberal convention which nominated Mr. Siiiuuotu as a candidate for the kib^slative assembly endorsed the eight hour law for miners, and jbe, as a niember of that convention, practically pledged himself to support.such a nvfosurc. The ubiquitous Sherman is apparently too busy with B. C. politics to take any active interest in tegisla-fion for iha ufnar.s in this province. Tha tinw is opportune for the gov-omnKHL to give this importixnt question Careful and dispassionate consideration, �n(l if the public and general interests arc not likely to toe joopai-dizcd, then to gracefully grant to thj minors as a ir.attor of lawwhat they so pcrsisienlly claim as a matter of right. proposition stage.

Kirchofler is a type of the man who gets the "swellotl head ' if a I Lord of Earl even bows to him. Cnlgnry is dissati.sfied with tha ; service th3 Dell Telephone is giving, jIn that city. The Herald hasn't mu(h use for the Dell Co. a.f a monopoly but it must say it is giving Lethbridge a very satisfactory service. It could hardlj- be improved upon. EDITORIAL NOTES. te all legitimate irays to every railroad that seeks tt> enter this city and aid in its growth. REFUSE THE APPLICATION. liSthbridge Is not in need of an-O^kher hotel license, at least no^t such a hotel as the Davis house on Bar -oneso road, could create. The city has six hotels now and if jmothcr one is really nocded, it is a hotel superior to any we now pos -ttf/M. We don't want the standard lowerad but raised atid a license for the Davis house would provide in-feilor accommodation. ' The commi.ssioners ia granting licenses, should always consider the TCharacter of the accommodation to toe provided and the location of the huildii^. If they do so in tbts case, they a-ilt not delay a minute in refusing the application- We would remind Mr. Sinuijops before he leaves for �klmonion that legislation fixing a bounty an coyotes would bo acceptable amongst the farmers and stock raiser^. These animals are a pest and should be got rid of. Fcrnio Liberals did a good stroke of tousiness when they nominated Wni. Dickon, a leading union man as their candidate. Dicktn is a lovol-h�id-d and well informed miner and led the opposilTon to President Sherman during the Feinie strike. Foin'^ Liberals i Dickcas. intend to raise the The Council wants to stick to that City engineer Idea. Wo haven't heard one whimper against it.

To the public, the merits and d�-JBWrits of the question, with two ex-dtptlooa are largely academic, and jot of general intcrcs't.
