Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 18, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta Sunshine no BENDINqj>OUBLE AND I'OKING AROUND TWe ashpit WITH a SHOVEL TOGET THE ASHES OUT OF THE SUNSHINE. The Sunshine is furnished with a good, big ash-pan. All you have to do is to grasp two strong, firmly attached, always-cobi, bale handles and the large, roomy ash-pan easily comes out. A minute or two is all it takes to perform the operation. All the ashes are in the pan, too. Because they are guided into it by means of ash-chutes attached innnediately below the fire-pot. Sunshine is the simplest, easiest-managed, cleanest kind of a furnace. You don't have to wear overalls and a smock when attending to the Sunshine. If your local dealer doe not handle the "Sunshine" write direct to us for Free Booklet. LONDON, TORONTO, MONTRfAi. WINNIKC^ VANCOUVER. ST.JOHN.N.B.

"What nonsense" they c.vclaimwl. "Why should we oHtahlish a system at any point in Alberta or any other province unless ve are gimranteen the monopoly, i't uierelj^- cau.seo-fore. many and mtiny the time, but they never aniounteil to anything- merely a bluff to hcodwink the electors. on a ay fol-iho the the nut Tiu'e passetl on its stonily coui-se aiKl the Ik'll people soon learnwithat t\w Allierta government wa."? unlike other governments.

If be will uqt letve you with our gow'.s'wriU; to the factory, giving the grocer's name, and lei; us seiul you a trial package at our expense. No danger of that. The govern -nient has too much confidence in the intelligence of the people of Alberta to believe for anionwnt that the last minute enterprise of the Bell Co. will attract support away frotn the tjovcrninent system. Tl*e fieoplevill surely see that the Ball Co. activity would never have bjeen more nol-ice -able than the riplcts crenteerta where the .1^11 |)eople ha\'�l�oen interested enough in the fnrmerH to erect lines along the concession roads in onler that the nwn wlio uiw tlw bone and .s-inew of this provincecould l..e piovided with one of the groat advantages ot modern times. It will puj' the pi'ople of Alberta to staiul loyally by the IVople's Telephone Sjstem, in preference to a monopoly that lacked enterprise up until the People's System was propcsed. ALBERTA BISCUIT CO., LTD. PaOTOBY at CaLUARV, Ar.BERTA A . � , AA.: A little bir* from Ontario informs me that the resign�.�ion ot Hon. Wiu. Paterson from the Lil>ei-al gov-ernnv.-nt at Ottawa nueans that he will succeetl Sir William Mortimer Clarke as Lieutenant Governor cf Ontario. Vou can take the report for what it. is worth. Bfr. Paterson nccompaniod Sir Wilfrid Lourier to Evdinonton nt tlie tinw ol tlw Pro -vince of /Wjlx-rtn. lielng inaugurated. At al]out the sanw time ns the Albortii UoMi Commission was hold � ing its sessions throughout tlie province a* Minor's F.ight Hour Day Com mittoe was preparing Hb report (or the British Oovominent. Fi'om the investigations of 'this comnvitteo it appears that the averago tinic from bonk to hank in all the coal mines of Great Britain is 0 hours and 3 minutes, 'liut the Actual averages worked vary from (1 hours, 49 minutes in Durham to 9 hour8 57 nkin-ut�s in Monouthshire for all clastes of uirdcrgrouml workers. When al -lowunco is made for customai^ weekly cr fortnightly totalstop daysahd short ilays the average theoretical week's work all over the countrj' is 49 hours, 53 minutes, which is not greatly in excess of a steady sis days a wock at eight hours a day. Working miners in .\Uierta, even at pre-sent, wouhl not averago any longer hours than these. It is figured in l!:ngland that th� reduction of tinte to a legnl eight hour tkvy would make a diflference, customary stops and short 4lays remaining as they are. of 10.27 per cent. The opera -tcrs figured that the loss in hours would ivducc the coal outpuy by twenty-six million tons a j-onr. The commrttee, ami It is worthy of n>en-tion that the members are nearly all scientific men who have given cool mining careful and thoughtful study, do not accept this conclusion of the oiMirators because they find that the actual average of working hours is 13.30 jier cent less than the theoretical or 4a hours i:i minutes, which gives an average of a little over si�ven hours tor six days in a week. 50 really under an eight hour day law the oiwrators would be faring fully ns Well as at present. Since Alberta is to have an eight hour hankto bank law it will interest the people of this province to learn the reasons advanced by the nnerVsh comniittee of investigation in favor ot such a law in (ireat Britain. 'J'hc comntittee believed tlie passage of" such a law would have, mitigating effects such as an improvement in the efflciency of la^jor, iniprovemsints in the mechanical cviuipments ^if the mines, an e.vtension of the use of Intjor Raving niflchincry, an exten -eton o( the multitude shift systent and some increase in the existing flow of outside labor to the mines. This commission found very much the same as the Alberta commission that the general health of miners was gOi>d and they do not think i>.>duced hours would bring ahout any ntarked change in that respect. This comnvittee thinks an immediate advance in prices, wages and demand for labor would fol  low the adoption of the law. An eight hour law in .\lberta will make Very little change in conditions at the mines for, as a matter of fact, nearly every large mine in this province works on the eight hour ilay basis. It is worthy of note that an eight hour law for nviners was adopted a tveek or so ago in the French Cham-\yev of Deputies. Tlie settlei'9 in the Peace River dist would necessitate the expenditure of a lot of money hut it would socn he amply repaid by the incoming of settlers. Xothing wiould atttract them more than the fact that the telegraph was hero to keep them in touch wrth the outer world. As a nutter of fact people in possession ot such conveniences as the telegraph f net telephone feel that they are as well off as the folks in the long iwttled comimunit -ies and consequently art more contented with their lot. One is not dreaming when he figUKs that the Government Telephone System will in a few years, in all iiltelihood, be connected with Athabaska Landing, which until recent years was looked upon 08 an outpost of civilization. And from there its wines will be stretched to the now settlements along the fertile plains of the Peace Hiver. As nearly every one knows land witnin a radius of four miiles at least of the city limits has been surveyed and sold to people who figure that Edmonton is going to be a second Winnipeg right away. Bdmonton is not the oqly city in Western Canada that has been pushing suburban property to the front. Everything looked rosy towards disposing of mc�>t of this outside stuil until the money markvt tightened up. S^ince that tiiiie real estate has been the deadest line ot business in the west. A. York, who had made a heap of money in Edmonton real es-iote looks for the market to bo very slowi for the next two years. The prices of inside property are not high but^utsido stulf was held at tou i^lg a figure and must come down Mr. York's conclusions in regard to Mmonton can lje applied to nearly every place in Western Canada where there hns Ixwn a boom ffnd people's InKiginations circled around the idea that their abode was to be a ci>ty of half a million in the next morning. Mr.Ycrk figures that Edmonton will te on a sounder foundation when the drop in outside real estate conies. CHARLES BUNN OUT ON BAIL. Charles Bunn, arrested some time ago at Athahasca I.Anding and held on a charge of asmult rlth intent to do bodily harm to .Ichn Pruden, has lioen released on $5,000 hail. The row, it will be ronvinibered, was the rcsuH of a dispute lietween Hislop and Nagle'h men,prior to leaving for their northern trip. Owing to Pru-den's condition, from tha hlow of an axe in Runn's handf>, the case eould not lie set down lor trial at the present sitting and may not comt: on till next January, owing to the ah-senec of many of the nitneeses in the north. Should it lie heard earlier it will likely be at the rsquest ot the crown for a special silting of the Supreme Court.
