Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 31, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta ETHBRUill HERALD F e. simpson .-1 ;hanan a. buchanan Don't bo a knocker. Li'thbridgo all the tiino. l-ioost S'JBSCBIPTXON: 1 Advauots - *1.50 a year ! nerwise ' - 32.00 a year ADVERTISING: "Par Month - PI.00 Per Inch NO DUTY FOR US. We believe, we voice the unanimous opinion of Soutliern Alberta, when we say the people here will not stand for an increased duty on fruit to protect the fruit raisers of Ontario. The government must remember Ontario is not all of Canada. It is all very well for the fruit farmers in the east to demand protection but, it must remembered tliat tlu- thousands of people living in the west want fruit at cheaper rates anl in better condition than the Ontario men can supply it. In order to get what we want wo have to look to the fruit sections of the western States, and the prices for berries pears and peacl es.. we get from there are high enouL;h now, without slamming a duty on to put money in the pocke's of the growers of Ontario and take money out of the pockets of the cousuiners of the west. Alberta, and the entire west, too, should make a most empliatic protest against the request that Ontario fruit growers propose making to the Ottawa govi>rnment. There is no better location for niaiiuiaeturing industries in the west than liet.ubridge. We have l!u! power close at hand, cheap fuel and a market at our doors. Let us aim to be the industrial centre of the west. In both Assiniboia and Saskat-tluwan lawyers are candidates For I he house of commons.

Il is predicted that, 25l)(X) Can-aili.uis from east of Lake Suix^rior atid mo.OOO Americans will mo\e to the west this year. Ci ive Leth-bridu'e and southern Alberta plenty of publicity and we will get our share of the new settlers. The Frank Paper is to be congratulated on the very creditable industrial number it has just issued. The Pass towns get a splendid boost. Every imlustry. trade and business is covered, and the issue is a dandy ad. centres. There illustrations. for these growing is an abuudaiu'e of BIG THING FOR THE TOWN. No better location could be found for a mr-at packing establishment than Lethbridge. Located as it is. in the heart of a great cattle raising district, the material is close at hand to keep the factory oixsrating from one year's end to the other. We woidd benefit by a large increase in wage earners. That is what the town wants. T!ie more money paid out the more money that will be spent. Then the farmers and ranchers will have a good market for their cattle right at their doors. That fact should ensure the rapid development of this district. We would advise the town council and the board of trade to ascertain, without delay, the standing of the Belgo-American Meat Packers financially. If they are rated Al, get after them and otfer every legitimate inducement to secure their location in this town. Calgary is aiming ,it ."iO.OOD population in four years. It would be very foolis-i for that city to induce p(>ople to come there to reside under false preteiicf-. I'nless it can otVer emplo' uiei. or openings in b ^i ex[)ect to reaci, ]u ii.ved. It will be .c, all. to induce mam wholesalers to loca; then only can it e^ rapidly. n factories s it cannot � lark it has ^ary. first of icturers and there mid ect to grow ON THE TRAIL. Hon. W. H. Gushing our minister of Public Works, is the type of administrator Alberta will cheer for. He is not going to sit in his office and decide the questions affecting his deimrtment. None of your arm chair legislation in his style. Wo find him out on the trail in Southern Alberta looking for spots where roads should be improved and bridges built. He will find plenty ot such i^laces, and that he will deal with them in a business like way and expediently is certain. Mr. Cusliing will not ho a partisan administrator either or we have been badly mistaken in the opinion we have formed of him. Ho will give all classes a fair deal and will act in the interests of thf! province. Tiie importance of tree jjlanting in Lethbridge cannot be over estimated. Nothing will make the l(3wii more cheerful and attractive than streets lined with trees. Too much cannot be said in praise ot the oii'ors of prizes by Messrs. Whitney and Hagell to encourage the beautifying of our streets and homes in this way These gentlemen folloAving the example set by the Herald a month or so ago, which was strongly endorsed by City Clerk Bowman. Put in a word, every chance you can get, to boost the fat stock, seed and poultry show to be held here ne.xt month. Lot us hayo a big crowd and an exhibition of the products of the Lethbridge district that will prove what we all believe; that tliere is no section of the west ecpial to ours Lethbridge is applying for a city charter. What is Medicine Hat going to do, aslis the Times. That's easy, why. remain a town. sure. JUST LOOK AROUND. Just a few more words about patronizing local merchants. Don't send away to Winnipeg for an article because you think you cannot get it here. You know we are all liable to think wrong once in a while. Visit the stores, make inquiries and probably you will find the piece of dress goods, the hat or the suit you want right in town at as reasonable a price as it will cost you at Winnipeg or Toronto, after express and money order charges have been paid. The cultivation of loyalty to Lethbridge will pay in the long run. We will all benefit. The bye-election for Kingston, (Jnt.. is to be fought out on new lines. One of the clauses in an agreemtmt between the candidates is as follows: "It is furthei agreed by the jjarties hc'reto that to prevent any doubts as to the observance of the; law, no vehicle shall be hired, asked to b^ volunteered, volunteered or used, either in connection with till! registration of voters or to take persons up to register, or on election day to take voters to the poll to vote. Each candidate is, however, allowed to ' have one vehicle on election day for liis personal use, v.hich he may employ to transfer his workers from one poll to another to work, , but not to vote." lioth ix)litical parlic's should niiikc a place for t'lis agreement in tli.'ir platforms and'see that it is cai- led out. It � would not be long, then, before ! political corruption is wijDefl out. Corruption is a curse to any land. HERALD HAMMERLETS. What's the use of worrying about ' the winds here.

Why do people travel away to California to avoid the winter, when they can enjoy summer weather in the good Canadian town of Lethbridge. Fred Kenny is an old timer, which means that ho is old enough to vote. If Cidgary wants to have 'jOfiiX) population in four years it will have to begin and bribe people to como there to live. Woman gives and forgives-man ' gets and forgets. ' A Word to the Farmers Editor of The Herald Sir-The farmers of Southern Alberta, and the farmers in the west and wherever the seed grain car on the C. P. R. and the specialists and practical gentlemen have made their triumphal progress these few days back, the farmers of all those districts cannot fail to be highly gratitied. and thankful for the elVorts that have been made, for their special benefit, to gise them practical instructions and object lessons, which in time to come if carried out, may help them to grow big crops, and tight successfully the enemies incidental to their work. They must also be pleased, at least those who are located on or near the lines of the pro^wsed railroads whose applications to the provincial parliament, for the necessary charters are now published in the newspapers. They will have pleasurable feelings too at the news of enciuiries, to the Lethljridge Board of Trade made i)y a meat concern, and hope then; will Ije no disapoititment. But the trouble to the Southern Alberta farmers, at least the most of them, is the lack of money in sufficient amount to work their huLlings and farms to the best advantage. Towns and cities are growing at nrch a rapid rate and are drawing so hard and heavy on all financial institutions, that the farmers who need extra working capita!, can neither be seen nor heard. Let us hope that the extraordinary growth of these cities and towns, may not be an outgrowth, which will be by and by, something like Stevenson's Desert Island wlieie the people earned a precarious existence by taking in each other's washing. It must be apparent to all stvrdents of economical things, that it would be far Ijetter if the rural inhabitants, grew and prosijcred in a fair ratio with those of the cities and towns. Seeing then that the farmers can find noavailable tiuancialinstitution suitable to their needs, what is to be done? The writer regrets that though on the continent of Europe in Italy, Hungary-. Austria, and the German Empire, France and England and the United States, they have institutions which meet the needs of each septirate country, there is nothing like it in Canada, I I do not wish to raise any quarrel with the chartered banks ot Canada, nor yet with the trust and loan companies of Canada, but all I have to say is, thvy do not meet the needs of the farmer, consequently the farmers would do well: to look abroad and see if they can-' not coUectivly help themselves. � Personally I am in favor of the Austrian and German systems of land credit banks, and I would ad-' vise all farmers in the district of Southern Alberta to get lasted on the operations and constitutions of those banks, and if Hon. Dr. De-Veber our representative in the local house, would take a hand in the matter, it would be a great heli^ O.
