Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 21, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta ml i! The Lethbridge Daily Herald i, ALBERTA. WEDNESDAY, JULY 21, 1909. WILL HAVE TO PUT UP THE MONEY NO. ISS. M. P. FOR STHATHCONA HAS PASSED AWAY For Local Improve- ments and Be Reim- bursed Next Year No more I'.cal improvements can be done tliis year unless the property- owners bear the whole cost with the hope of being reimbursed next year when the expenditure is passed in a bylaw. This was the decision of the city council "Monday night when sev- eral applications for sidewalks, water and sewer were considered. The Works and Property Commit- tee reported in favor of the 12-foot ce- ment walk on Round St. instead of an eight-foot one as provided in the by-law as per petition presented at last meeting. The mayor proposed to leave the matter over this year as there is a walk there. It would mean the mov- ing of the poles again. The mayor afterwards pointed out that there is a contract already made to put in eight foot sidewalks and to put a motion to leave it over would be a breach of contract. Aid. Oliver thought when they had petitioned for it they should get it. The secretary said there was nion ey provided for the extra four feet and if it were built the property owners would to bear the whole cost. Aid. Bowman pointed out that it would have to be advertised again as the council had no authority to spend money for a 12-foot walk when only an 8-foot walk was chithorized by the bylaw passed. H. B. Miebach asked to have the sidewalk extended 72 feet on the east side of Gait St. along the Windsor, St. when the present walk TMHG St. where the present walk is two Strathcona, July Wilbert doctor had recently purchased Mclntyre, 31.P. for Struthcona con- beautiful home in Strathcona. stituency, succumbed to an acute at- I tack of kidney trouble- at 4.40 0'.clock tauffht school this morning.

In the-opinion of this jury the accident was caused through the disgracefully dangerous condition of this road, and we" would recommend that it be closed to the travelling public until such time as at is put in proper repair.
