Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - January 21, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta page six THE LETHBRinr.R DAILY HERALD MONDAY, JANUARY-21, 1918 HOTEL LICENSE TO VARY FROM $100 THF WONDERFUL IT Rooming Houses $25-Hospital Ne&fc $ ivOOO for Coming Year Hotel keepers of the city of Lethbridge will pay a license this year varying from $100 for the larger hotels to $25 for the. smaller, while rooming houses which are run in competition with hotels will be compelled to pay a license with $25 as the base rale. This was'decided at a meeting of the city council this morning which was ' attended by the hotel keepers. They "J demurred at paying quite so high aj license. Inu. it was finally agreed that I the Alexandra, Pailus and I Coaldalc should pay JK:0 each, the j Arlington and the Paris $50 each and i the Windsor $25. j Don't Need Another Hotel Incidentally the h'.nelkeepevs told the city council that all the talk of the city neeu'ng another hotel was bosh, that the established hotels are not making nearly the money some people think and flint they should not be ask-j ed, to pay too high license. i Board of Trade J . The council also decided that the j cost of printing the annual report of1 the board of trade should be borne as j usual. The cost will be in the neigh-j borhood of S3"i0.

A. Buchanan, M. V.. at the Peoples Forum yesterday afternoon. The meeting: was by far the best attended in the history of the Forum, and/the^iddress elicited a great deal of Interesting discussion. "It is our bounden duty to assume this responsibility," said the speaker. Totalled 171 Millions-Was 19 Millions for December Alone Ottawa.

C-ommisioner Freeman, however, thought the city re-Mired a great deal more good from the board of trade than the amount of money it cost ar.d therefore the cost of the printing should be paid without protest. Hospital Budjjst The Gait Hospital budget for 191S shows requirements of $4,000 from the city. The request was referred to the finance department, and if acceded to will be included iu the estimates. Approval of the issue of bonds for S70.312 tor the installation of the turbo generator has heen raceived from Sir Thomas ""White, minister of finance.

Their object is-"to take the government over into their own hands," by partisan criticism ot the conduct of the war. he declared. Citing statements of the Republican leaders regarding the political plans and editorials of Col. Roosevelt, which, he said, are "villainous screeds" published- for money, Senator Stone declared: "On my responsibility as a senator, I charge that since our entry nto the war Roosevelt by his attacks on'the government has been a menace and obstruction to the succesntul prosecution of the war." sions followed. Mr. Filmer raised'the question as to how these farms would be distributed and said that he thought it ought to be on the basis of length ot service. W.

He thought the limited hours would do much to meet the employ- 160 acres and a loan ot $2,500. schools of agriculture will be estab lished for instructing the men in the. latest scientific methods of farming. Of course there are certain difficulties that arise from this plan. One of the chief is that of preferential allocation. Most of the land suitable for agriculture has been settled at points that are near a railroad or a community, large or small as the case may be. Now it would appear that the sold'er would have to take the less desirable location as some more, or lass remote spot. This will have to be looked into. To the latter objection, however, there is a certain solution, and that, is that the immense amount of idle land ment problem. Commissioner Freeman suggested putting the men to work on suitable tracts immediately:oti'their return, and not wait until the termination of the war. The mayor outlined-at some length, a system of reducing the war debt whereby the nionled interests 'would pay the greater share. He met with an ovation. Robt. Barrowman, J. D. Higinbotham and others also offered .sane observations.

Now although we have by treaty allotted this land to the Indiana, it is a well known fact that in the majority of cases,, these, the most fertile and productive of lands, are absolutely without cultivation. It seems to me that we could give these people some other land in a less productive district and that they would be equally satisfied. It is also my sound opinion that the bulk of the huge leases In this and other provinces should be cancelled and the land turned over to small farmers. "I believe that it should become/tin ambition with the government to make rural life as attractive as possible in the years that follow.
