Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 18, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta liTHBRI96B HERALD nUNtlllG CO^ LTD. a D. AUSTIN. EIHm> aai MMagtr. W. JOKDAN, Sipt ! M OipwtiMat SaasCIUPTION: In AdvanoM 91.90  y�*r OtbarwiM 2.00  year f ThcWorMofSportJ THE HUDSON'S BAY COMPANY AOVERTISINO: Par Hontli 91.00 Par Inch OUR POINT IF VIEf^ Bdmontbn Fair suffered severely from the prenenoe of crooks and sharks. At t4te Calgary fair last ytiar these gimtlemen had a busy session. This year, however, the Cal gary diici of police let the word out that all these fellows would be sunk-imriiy treated if caught in the city. The consequence is thai Calgary fair this^}�ar was ckan. Our Chief of Police is known to toe death on these gambling sharks. It is altogether likely that Ijcthbridge will be ^ven a wide berth btrt it is just as well to lot it be known what reception will be ^iven them should they de-cide to take in the lethbridge Fair. If we interprErt tlie temper of the Agricultural Society directorate, of the civic police authorities and of the citimns generally, crooks and sharks can liclicve that the quality of mercy will not .be strained in their �)chalf. A St. Louis ntan cats only once every twenty days. He is trying to economize on grooery and mmt bi'ls. BASEBAIX REVIEW. Letltbridge has struck a real winning gait and is clirabing to tlie top just, as fast as the schedule will allow. After breaking even with the leaders in two series, the centres of Letihbridge's ho()cs proceeded to do things to EdnHynton. In 'Hie first game, last Thursday cvorj-thing looked rosy until Kunzie, who had distinguished himself the innings before by cleariT>g the bases for as many runs, in the fifth dropi>ed a fly lett-ingin two runs. The mischief was done and Edmonton won out by 7 to 6. Such stuff as crops are nwnte' of fell capiously the next evening and in baseball there wos nothing doing. On Saturday a double-header was pulled off vith eminent satisfaction to the local fans. The afternoon game was the gift of Umpire Mc-Ouidien who ruled out two of the visitors for misbehavior leoving them only eight men. At the �ime the "Deacon's" deaconesses were leading SI-1 but tb� .locaVs bade fair to get ahead �when the trouble arose. . Just to cinch the matter, Morrison's miners took the evening game in an un-miatakttble roonner. Fogorty who pitched in the afternoon was in the box again and pitched � groat gome kaeping the hits well scattered. Rogers distinguished himself by making two triples. The .score stood 10 to 0 at the fmish. A Dctertptioa of the Lcthbridge Ettftblithacnt-The Company** History in Canada. Wihen in 1891 the business of Messrs I. O. Hakcr & Co. was U\U\>n ovor by the Hudson's liny Co.. it wa.s generally considei�l by tlie 'then ivsi-dents that the town ha handsome mnv buikling was laid. The building toMract.

"I could die eating cucumbers" declared' a Denver woman and then she ate two and expired. She vas a very truthful woman that. A suggestion was made that Pt�ni> icr McBride, of British Columbia, en-Iter Dominion politics. As soon as 1'oung Richard heard it he had a bad attack of cold feet. HuslMiiKis, we advise you to eat all the strawberries for an eminent physician from Lcndon says that if women eat this fruit tbey will be sulky and bad tempered. R. O. McPherson, Liberal H. P., for Vancouver says the LiberalswiU carry every seat in British Columbia ait the next DomiBion elections. Premier McBride ffives ev�ry seat to the Torien. The public can Judga for itbemselvca which is the fiercest liar in the bunch. After def^ting Edmonton at the Capital in three straight games, the Cajgary bunch returned home to receive the same dose from Edmonton. TiM Medicine Hat came along and took three more. The Calgary team are playing consitrtently, be*ing the most regular losers the other teams could desire. A rich brewer escaped from the custody of an Ontario sheriff. Tha Sheriff must have had a weakness for beer.. "Never saw better anywhene" the universal report regarding crops. la tha Southern Alberta will show them all this year when the grain is gar  nerecl.

C. than to serve in opposition in Ottawa. 1^ United States Congress haa enacted a law which will abolish the eld saying, "Otace on American al ways an American." Hereafter all citiaens of the United States living in foreign lands must register at tfaa Jioarest consular office every year or be expatriated. The cbject is to lesson the number of in'ternational dis -putes caused by trouble between foreign govemroents and American citi aens. Evidently the folding of the Stars and Stripes round every citi Tien wherever he may be is becoming a cuinbersonw undertaking. Some well-known Lindsay (Ont.) citiMns have been arrested for mak ing counterfeit money. The country does not Meem to appreciate their ef forta to relieve the stringency in the money market. The C.P.P. made a wiie move when k appointed Jack Moe, fcrmerly ag ent here, district passenger agent at Nelson. Mr. Moe deserved the pro motion. Uo ia one of the vaott capable man, the big read haa in its fiervioe^ He is popular and courteous and is always anxious to do a good turn for friend or stranger. :|tay he climti up higher, ia the wish ;of the Herald.

Schurch was too generous so Mor  rison got on the firing end and relieved a delicote situation. Sykcol -ogy had no terrors for the local Atudents and his problems w^ene eas -ly solved. Morrison actually made a home run on a vicious grounder that mowed down the shortstop and left fielder as well as a wide swath of hay on its way to the fence. The tallyHtward should Calgary 7, Leth-bridga 10.. On Tuesday niglrt the trick was duplicated. Schurch hod Fidler's Fumblers at his mercy vhlle the local baimtqrmed Bametead for fourteen hits. But for Boylan's error the game would have been a shut out. As it was the score stood 6-1.

The Hudson's Bay Com pany started humbly, but in tho course of generations jrt developed until it has risento be the greatest fur trading corporation in the world wHh half" a continent dotted thick ly with its trading posts, with in numerable white men and Indians in its employ, and with a name and pre.'itige universal. Thougti the laws of the great west are not now nktde and administered by the Hwlson's Bay Company and the entine trade ir, not controlled by it >'ot one twen -tieth of the "fertile belt" was giv. en to the company by the Cano'dian government when the new provinces were organized nearly forty years ago, and it is a very wealthy and influential organization. On the second day of May, two hundred and thirty-seven years ago eighteen London merchants secured from King Charles, England's merry monarch, a charter granting them t'he privilegeof e.vcl,u8ive tfade in furs in that part of British North America drained by the streama flowing into Hudson bay. His Royal Highness Prince Rupert, nephowof tho king, the dashing cavalry leader who performed such pro ctigijis o^ valor against Cromwell's invinpiblf fro^sides, Vfun soh!Ot�i by tho pKorchofits fs 'tl^ qt tifoir compopy and the phnfter wag granted to "The Ooverapr and Cpmpf^ny of Adventurers Trading into Hudson The orgunication of thsgrcat trading comiiany was tha outeomoof a trading expedition which t4w mer-Phants had sent to the Hudson bay country a year or two ppDViously. They had spied out the lami . and kpew that It would yield \a bountiful fur harvest, which would bring abundant returns to them when placed on the niarkot in London. The char ter gave not only the fur trade but the minerals in the district, the administration of Justice and the power to "make war or peace w4tli nrn christian peoples or prinoos." and two black beavers, but the papers show that �300 o( the original stock was placed to his credit and the payments of tho divi'donds were made a matter of considerable importance. "Pro Pellc Cutera," the motto of the company signifies skin for skin and illustrates that tradinjj and fur trading principaVy, vos ihe prime object of tho 'Hudson's Bay Company. Tho organizers at onco I'fitted out ships which carried traders and merchants to the shores of .^lo Hudson Boy and ofienod up trade, by barter, with the Indians. GraduaUy the trade was pushed forward and covered British North America. As the company grew in wealth ond p&wer tho imrtncrs on this side of the water made their headquarters ot Montreal where they lived iitgroat splendor and their meetings wrth the wintering partners at the wusicrii headquarters, on the shores of tho givat lakes wore occasions of mu ,\\ pomp and ceremony accompanied 1 y wonderful feasts. \ The story of the sacossion of disaffected partners and the organi/.a  tion of the X. y. and Nor'West com-pouies and the sanguinary struggle which was carried on ov'er tho prai--ie country, culminating in the terrible disaster of Seven Oaks, is well known to all readers and nequires iio comnteiit.

The Duke of Marborough was for a time governor after the death of Princo Rupert, and when the om-atgatnation of tho companies took place in 1821, Sir George Simpson was chosen as its hood. He wos a young man, inexperienced, but possessed of. wonderful organizing abil -i'ty and soon had all wounds healo.1. So great was his power 'that he was called the "Emperor of the Fur Trade." Tho prs>aent Bovemor of the company is Lord S'truthcona, who spent many of his earlier >'ears us a junior clerk of the com|�ny in tho wilds of northtwstorn Canada.
