Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 17, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE HERALD PRINTING CO., LTD. W. A. BUCHANAN, Minajlnt Director. W. JORDAN, Sopt. of Job Department. SUBSCRIPTION: la Advance  f 1.60 a year Oil :WUe  92.00 a year ADVERTISING. Fer Month  tl.00 Per Inch APTITUDE TOWARD RAILWAYS. Tho CP.It. or any olhor railroad should bo encouraged in all efforts put forth to luako Lethbridge a Urge railroad centre but that cn -couragotnvnt should not be so far reaching as to allow corporations to tramplo on our rights or stifle criticism of wrong do in?. Tho Herald bclloves the C.1-. I. Is doing and can do. a great deal to-war -� advancing Lethbridge. Tho city fchould deal with tho big road M gen,>roualy as possible but it Would be foolish to follow a "lay down" policy and allow it to run the city. It has not attempted to do �o, but if the advice of some people were followed it would bo given a free hand to do nearly as it liked. Loth-bridge wants to avoid being a corporation controlled city. Encouraging a railroad or any other In -tltution is a din,'rout matter to hand n^ the future of tho city over to it. Lelhbridgo should watch every move the railroads make In order that the interests of the city �hould be pro tec tod. On the other head it bhould offer encouragement is all legitimate ways to every railroad that seeks to enter this city and aid in its growth. nidtur. And why should not the'proposition stage. Government of Alberta take up this I -- matter ami if what wins to be the We'd bettor turn -that sign th-> reasonable contention of the intnjrs, '"Colorado of Canada" to the wall, can be enforced, by law, without to j until this cold dip leaves us. any extent itnpo.Hiittf a hardship up- . --- on tho general public, and without What t-othbridge should do right Injustice to the operators, then tho 'away Is engage a publicity eommis-tinic Is opportune to re-enact the jsloner. Pay him a good salary nnd eight hour law. It is trim, tho Minors Unions of the Crow's Nest Pass led by Hherman, have offered tho most bitter opposition to tho supporters of tho Al -bprta government on every occasion, but this same government haw already placed themselves upon record, to the ulloi-t that tnc favorable or adverse atuitude of any class or constituency, wilt not in tho least affect or influence tho government *n carrying out what thoy deem to t� In tho public Interest. The LUicral convention which nominated Mr. Sinunons as a candidate for the legislative assembly endorsed the eight hour law for miners, and be, as a member of that convention, practically pledged hliuself to support such a moasurc. The ubiquitous Sherman Is apparently too busy with H. C. politics to I take any active interest in legislation for ihj uAnars in this province, j Tho timvs Is opportune for the gov-lemnHnL to give this lm|*>rtant quv�-it ion careful and dispassionate con-isidcration. and if the public and interests are not likely to be let hint devote his tiiuo to keeping this city bofoiv the manufacturers and in gathering statistics that will appeal to thos^x, who want InfoniMt-Icn about this part tf Alberta. This is bad weather for tho bananas. Instead of granting Senator Kireh-hoffer a lease of swamp land for hunt ng purposes, the Dominion government should have inud^ him King of Ixibrndtr or the North Pole, for tho Senator dearly loves a title. Senator Kirchhuffer has no right to swamp lands. All he wants them for Is to entertain the nobility from over the ocean, whom he likes to hob-nob with. Kirchoffer is a type of th,aixl,/.ed. then to gracefully grant �"ol>' ,ml il 1,1,11,1 sftJ' 11 ,* g,Vl"B to thj miners as a .ratter of lawwhat I^thbrid-go a very satisfactory ser- 'they so pvnfetenilv claim as amat-!vu'0 11 could hnr,l,y "0 ",,�,r*vort ter of right. 'upon. REFUSE THE APPLICATION. Lethbridge Is not in need of another hotel license, at least not such a hotel aa tho Davis house on Oar -oneM road, could create. The city has six hotels now and if another ono is really ircodcd, it is a hotel superior to any we now pos  se&s. Wo don't wunt the standard lowered hut raised and a license for the Davis house would provide Inferior accommodation. The commissioners is granting1 licenses, should always consider the character of the accommodation to be provided and the location of the building. If they do vo In this case, they will not dcluy a rainuto in refusing the application. ------ # i � j Kcinle Liberals did a gnod streko j FllimDIil MATFf of business when they nominated , CUIIUKlAb IWIU.

In the year 1809. chiefly at the instigation ol Senator Do Vcber. who then represented Lethbridge Electoral Diet rut in the Territorial As-^eroUy, an eight hour law fcr miners was placed upen the statute (book ol thj North West Territories. The IlaulUiln government wore lukc warns |n their support of tho measure, ami wh.n in 1000 Mr. II. U. Dennett, who thin represented Calgary, und who was supposed to champicn th* Cause .of the operators, advocated its repeal. Mr. Haultnin almndorvxi own offspring, and although the Doctor*VJ'iig1"l>l""cd its cause, the cold h.ttrtcdsS�j4i"rt' �r rath"r lacl�Vr�f of lho K�v" ernnxnt wax taken a.s a'cSie,)V their f�,ith.ul followers, and tho |fl�u>ure was by th.'in wiped from the MoftrUL took, unwept, unhonorod and un-punj. (by the Legislative Assembly;. Since that date, chiefly on account of pressure brought upon the o|*>ra-tors by thj Unions tho eight hour law has become tho rule in practically all tho mines of Alberta with the exception of Leih'tridge. TaW mines still work ten hours but the operators have entered into an arrangement with the Union, providing for the introduction of the ei^ht hour system, in the near future. To tho public, the merits and demerits of the Question, with two exceptions are large'y academic, and jjot of general interest. The one exception is that the miners claim an eight hour law {or underground work era is necessary, since the character of the work entails more than the ^jiauaI amount of hardship, disconv fort and physical strain upon the men. The other exception ing in thj onVe, I Deforo the royal grain commission !nt Ibsrna Hon. Mr Motherwell, min-jister of agriculture, opposexl the suggestion of a reciprocal demurrage tax on railways.
