Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 4, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ LETHBRIMfi HBRALD f||liniK?�^LtD. B. AUSTIN, BliMr Ml Miu|ir. !itUBflCRIPTION: In Adv�no� fi.�0 a yw OtharwiM taoo  ymr AOVEHtlSINO; Pttr Month - l.OO Pt Inch ItaynKind will los� � good citixen by tHe removal of E. S. afartin. niM��*r of the Bank tanc� and after a careful review of the Liberal members from that province it looks asthough Air Wilfrid was going to have a heap of trouble picking out a strong aad able man to succeed the Minis  ter of Public Works. Ontario is supposed to be the horns of Intel'cotuul and resourcnful men, but an acquaint ance with the representatives both parties send. to Ottawa leads one to conclude that it is falling away from the position it formerly held. As a matter of fact if air Wilfrid desires to HtreAgthch his cabinet in Ontario -and that should be his object- be will have to make his selection from outside the House of Commons. Probably he will wait until after the next general elections before hcmakes an appointment, .hoping that some able men will be elected. Of the present mpttihprs in the house from OnUrio the nanu>s ot X. Camptel^. W. S. CalveH, .Speaker Sutherland, Hufih n(ulhri� aod Geo. D.i Grant hove liccn mentionod as cabinet iimtpi-iHl. Some of these members have ability but they are weak in other rpsiiccts and theywould not fH in with the ideals of the average Ontario Liberal. them ifl the question reapMftiat our system of taxation �o aa to make H bear most heavily on the strain: the orther is the ques-those mo9t ca|iable>of supporting tlon of utilising, the general re -sources of the nation in the way that will be of most benefit to the nation as a whole. In utilizing and conserving the natural resources of the nation, the one consideration morp essential than any other is .regard for the fu  �ture. Hitherto a.s a notion we have tended to live with an .single to the pre-sent and have pcrnwttcd tha reckless wuste and destruction of much of our natural wealth. The conscr\"ation of our natural re.sources and their proper use constitute the full, probhim which underlies every problem of our national lifte. Unless we maintain an adequate material basis for our civilization wc cannot maintain the institutions in which we take so great pride and to waste attd destroy our national resources means to undermine this nwterial tmsis. Even such questions as, the regulation of railroad rates and tlw control of corporations are in reality subsidiary to the priniul problems of the preservation of interests of the whole people of the resources that nature has given us. If we fail to solve the problem no skiU in solving the others will in the end avail us greatly. "All who have studied the subject carefully have come to see that the jiolution of the public lattds question lies with the hotne maker, with the.settler who lives on his land, and that government control of the mineral, fuels and the public graxing lands is necessary and inevitable. "New as to the matter of taxation. Mo.val of tho building. A communication from tlio Olds Council wns read asking for co-operation uf municipalrtics in t.e.vtint; the of the C.l'.R. clo.siivg .stivel.s a�-aiiisit the wnshcs of the niunicipalitiea Tiki (;o�mcil suggested that the matter be referred to the .VHVPta I'nion of municipalities for oction.

They evidently rely a good deal on the fairness of Mr. Aubin. Cunnlnghnm Lumber Co. on the Po|)e. When .1. V. Whitney gets through appointing two hundred lawyers K. C.'s in Ontario, the fellows witkovt this rank will form the exclus-i\9 set in Ontario legal circles. Dr. Sproulc vill now arise and appeal to his Roman Catholic fellow crtiaens to oppose Sir Wilfrid Ijaur-�ier becouso ho callod on the rremior of France who is an opponent of the Church.

Robert Livingstone, superintendent of the .Standard Coal Comfwny said he had been engaged in mining for twenty-two years, ten years of which were spent in Alberta. Tho output of the mine was sixty to ncvcnty tons, but when the new equipment was installed they could mine about 150 tons |>er day in one mine about flft.v tons from another. They have about forty-five men on the |iay roll the average pay for contract miners being about $4.25 ami day men from 12.50 to $3 per day. Mr. Livingstone stated that they shipped coal but ho couldn't say whether there wos any scarcity of cars'. They had very little storage capociity at the mine.
