Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 19, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta lETHBRIDGB HERALD .

To the mind unfamiliar with engineering, it seems almost certittcd 90 : >; is . lablo cost � to tlio industrial ceilr-'s of ihe . province. It is Lethbridgie's duty to luki; up itihis power problem at,once and os-- certain if it is fea.sible. Jf a competent engineer reports favorably it means that the future of this city is to be marked by great indu9tri�,l development.. AVith cheap power at ^ur command we could draw to lur roidst, large factories, employing many hands and Lethbrklge would soon be tibe great n>anufaot�ring centre of Western Canada. Ccuiicil or the i^oople are in a poiiit-loii, evidently, to alter coiiditfons ntuv. "Four tilings stand out pronkincnt-ly in this question: (I) A by-law .sh(.uid ?n subniiiititod by the Mccyicine llat Council, and Uie verdict left with the burgesses ('tftc opinion muCk Aows but one tiling: 'liMt where Uiere a^e divcrginc opinioM there ia alao ttet mu -.h greaiter reaaoti why � verdiot fr.tta the body of burgesam MwuM be obtained-it 19 not the men on the street but the man *t the ballot hox, wiOh his intereaits and the city's in-teiests at stake, fiho couata; (3) There W'in be much regret on the pat", of the towvopeoplc if thie ia dustr} moves away, there will also be much criticism of the Council for not submitting a bylaw to the burgesses." ' Medicine Hat is surely mora to blbine in the matter than LeihhridCe It acted in such a manner, 4hait the Woollen Kill was forced to leave the city. L�thbridgp was approached, and Lethbrtdge consented to guarantee the Woollen Mills bonds, but not before it- wos established that the mill was �oing to leave the Hat 110 mat ter what offers to retain it were made. The charge of the News has not been proven, but on the other hand it has made out a very bad caac for Medicine Ibit and shows conclusively thiit. it did not treat ons of its in-di;.�.tries properly. Surely iioth -bridge should not l>c blamed. Ihis ojty has the most friendly feelings towards Medicine Ha* and not Ihe slightest intention of enticing its indub-tries away. It has not .set any "such '''pernicious example" as the Xews maintains and dot>3 net intend to. GOSSlPBr ontheside;t�"|�' the jiirwl to any extent. .iHjcau.sc we were nlnio.�t stop|x>d ot the tinw.

The Medicine H�it News, owned by Mn.xor FWer of that city charges that lethbridge is '"outbidding" Medicine Hat 'in an effort to locate the Medicine Ilat Woolkm Mills here*. Thcj News is lisually. a very fair fiap-er, but it is most unfair in the i.. terpr�tation it has made of IjoUi-bridg^'a offer to the Woollen Mill people. liKhbridge never thought of ^iv Medicine Hot Woollen Mills locating tivii} until a representative of the company came here and approacliod tha Board of Trade with a proposal to establish the Woollen mills. - From the conunenconoient of the negctiations i>t was made clear to th�.t gentleman that IjetWbridge would not touch tihe proposition it intendod for the purpose of "holding up" Medicine Hat. The ixjprosonta -tivo declared most emphatica^^ that the mill would be taken awa.v from Medicine Hat, lio matlpr what tho per.pl.j there mi^t offer, and it Loth-bridg-o d>d not wan't it, they wouWl go some place else. It is thus very den,' that Lethbridge dki not .bid (or one of Medicine Hat's "growing concerns"- as ithc N'cws-charges.
