Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 15, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta THI LitMamocft witktY HERALD Coleman; July splendi weather ushered in by the first, con tinues and everybody is rejoicing Kanchers near here are now confidett j they good crops and goo cattle for the fall market, whil market gardeners are doing a thriv ing business in small vegetables. lu Cuiemtm the signs of prosperity are many as is evidenced by th many new houses that have gone up the new sidewalks and improved streets and the new families that arc moving in. Bat in the works of .I.C. 0. Co.'s the marks of pro .gress are seen very clearly the pro gress that really makes that of th tnurn lUAficihlft Tho fnkn 4. w at full blast shipping two hundred and fifty tons daily, forty new ovens rapidly nearing completion and large improvement in the machinery de partment show a large increase in business done. To generate power sufficient for al. purposes there are eight large boilers but these have been found inadequate and two new large boilers are .being installed. To furnish compressed for the engines that haul out tha train loads of coal one of the largest types of air compressors have been used (made in Sherbrooke, but this cannot furnish air enough and another of equal capacity is being put in. The fan' that drives the air into the tunnels and rooms of the dine is run by power, generated by two other large boilers situated.two miles back over the mountains. .With all these it may be readily seen that the era of prosperity that came to Coleman a year ago bids fair to continue with her for some years to come. The new manager of the, "Coleman Hotel" took charge at noon Friday. His name is James MacNeil. a canny Scot from Cranbrook, B.C. Coleman, July Stephen- son, one of the most popular mem- bers oi the local branch of the Min- er's Union, left on Monday night for England. For the past year he has been treasurer of the union, which office he has filled most satisfactorily to all. Always ready to assist j anything that would help "the boys gentlemanly and good hearted Jo will-be missed while away and we corned heartily when he returns t Coleman. A large crowd of "Eagles of which lodge he is an active mem her escorted him to the train an "saw him off." James Grewcutt, fourteen year ol son of Mrs. Jane Grewcutt left o: Monday -night for Banff wh ;re he will learn the baker's trade and busines with his uncle. Jim is -a larg strong boy, quick to learn, and it i hoped that for his widowed mother' sake he will take to thu new lif kindly. We are very sorry the I. C. C. Co are allowing the foreign population to "occupy the new cottages on th second bench or to build houses NEWS FROM ALBERTA'S CAPITAL Praise for Dominion Exhibi- tion-Movements of Ministers Edmonton, July o Edmonton who have returned irorn the Dominion fair at Calgary ar loud in their praise of the Exhibi tion, the opening pageant and th' general arrangements made by th committee in charge of affairs. The enterprise and ability shown by the citizens of Calgary in this event an, commended by all thinking AlU-rbins in this portion of the province. Thi fair will be productive of much good beyond the benefits of the actual ten- days' exhibition, for visitors carried away very vivid impressions of the resources of Alberta as indi- cated in the various exhibits. The Pro vincial Government's striking display which is to be sent on to Toronto xhibition, has received such warm praise that Edmontonians regret the small likelihood there is of it being displayed in this city. The land office and land guides at this point are kept well occupied with the steady, stream, of settlers coming in. At present the majority are Americans. The Pembina and Lobstick districts along the line of he G.T.P. west, of Edmonton, draw many, while many others are settling At points south and east, of Edmon- there. Many of the Anglo Saxon race living there are not very wel pleased and- are uttering their com' plaints. With their strange speech their apparent disregard for the Sail bath, their fondness for beer and per- haps something stronger, their car- ousals on every occasion that furnish an excuse for one, they should be kept by themselves. Less than half a mile up the track is Slav town and they should be kept severe- ly in that town where they may car- ry out their ideas is they want to and not be.brought among people so completely unaccustomed To them and who will never mingle with them. Hiss Belle Laird and her Brother Douglas, returned home this morning on the express. They with another sister, Annie, have been enjoying a delightful visit at their grandfather'; in Ladysmith, B. C., for the past se- ven weeks. Annie will remain there some weeks longer until fully restor- ed to health after her long illness from typhoid fever. The others came by "flyer" to Frank last night, com- ing on to Coleman this morning. Both look as if much improved by their trip and their many frien.'s cor- dially welcome them back. Why docs not the flyer stop.at Colo man? Surely the business they would get would warrant it. Perhaps it is that there is so little at Coleman to look at but there is a town growing and growing. There are passengers many of them who would find the train a great convenience and it would pay them to stop here. Per- haps they stop at Frank for water, during the taking of which passen- gers have an opportunity to get on or off. If this is it and doubtless it is, why then we won't say any more ab'out it. Mr. .Leary, tired of paying rent, has started to build a house for him- self besides Marshall Laird's. It is to bo about 22 x 26 a storey and a half high. Pain will depart in exactly 20 min- utes if one of Dr. Shoop's Pink Pain Tablets is taken. Pain anywhere, Remember! Pain always means con- gestion, blood else. Headache is blood pressure; tooth- ache is blod pressure on the sensitive IITYS. Dr. Shoots Headache called Pink Pain quickly and safely coax this blood pressure away from pain centres. Painful, periods with women in- stant relief. 20 Tablets 25c. Sold by J. J. Johnston. The presence of Lawrence A. Wilson he wholesale liquor man of Mon- real, in the city this weeic i-esttrted in a merger between the Alberta Wine Importing Company in which he is interested and the Strathcona Brew- ing Company. The new concern, plans to erect several hotels through- out the province, it is said. The Alberta Wine Importing Company, with, it is understood, some Montrer al capital behind it, was started in. Edmonton last autumn. Rev. Dr. Pringle of Yukon reputa- tion visited Edmonton this w speaking on half a dozen occasions a Club lunches and in churches. 0 one occasion he was the guest of th newly organized Maratinie Provinc Club, the Doctor being a" native Prince Edward Island.

Kichardson is unable as yet in give a statement as to the fin- ancial result of the exhibition. He confidently expects, however, that a balance on the right side will be shown. The expenses on the building and grounds was to 000 more than expected, and the loss on the fitting up of the schools is more than was anticipated. The large attendances have, it is expect- ed, made up for these losses. The gate attendance at 25 cents a ,head, would mean receipts of 359.75, -and the grand stand at the A feature with oar fold collars is, plenty of space for the under the fold.

The Foley Welch Stewart Company, who hav, the contract for grading east and west of this city are moving their forces from Battle River section where the work is about completed ;o the country west of Edmonton be- tween the Pembina and Maclcod riv- ers. It was like the advance of a portion of an industrial army when a. few days since in the dusk of grow ng dawn 120 teams belonging to this company passed through the city their long journey west. It ixpected that the steel will be laid clear to Buttle River bridge by the middle of next xveek.

The first that was known of the jobbery was about eight o'clock this morning when Mr. Hay, who is act- ing as cashier as well as chief clerk, during the absence of Cashier Eniest Kenny, went to unlock the safe. He then discovered the loss and prompt- ly reported it to the B.N.W.M.P. and in a very short time Sergt. Setcctlve Egan was on the scene. During the night attempts were made to gain entrance to the stores of E. J. Hill and Misses L. J. Mc- Leay. All the back windows of the former store were tried and one which showed, signs of being worked by a was broken. The screen was torn from the back window of other store and the burglars were evidently ready to get in through the window which was not very strong but were seemingly frightened Constable Silliker happening along the lane in the course of his rounds noticed the window torn open and went inside to investigate but found no further trace. This is the second time this week that the Misses Mc- Leay establishment was tried, a sim- ilar effort having beea made last Monday night but that attempt was apparently by amateurs. _Chief Gillespie complains that in spite of tho frequent warnings he has given the business men of the city, they continue" to leave their doors and windows insecurely fasten- The sad details of the accident b which Miss Helen Hatch came to he death are told by those who returne to the city from the Alpine Clu meeting to attend the funeral.
