Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 22, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE WEEKLY HERALD Lethbridge Herald PRINTING LTD. W. A. irector and Editor. SUBSCRIPTION In Advanct SI.50 a year Otheriwse a year ADVERTISING Month per inch THE EAST AND THE WEST The shippers or dealers are not the only ones who will benefit by the Georgian Bay caiial. The cost of ter for the local producers as the us- I ing of the local product would save double freight and it is hoped that j the local mill men will be heard' from before the wool leaves the coun- try. The clip for the year is just about what the local plant would require for a year's operations. THE CATTLE EMBARGO The reported words of Premier As- quith that if he- were convinced that: Jive cattle could be admitted safely j he would favour n removal of the present cattle embargo, bear to the cattlemen of Canada a prospect of a concession for which they have long been asking. The present condition is most unfavoraOle to the trade in live cattle, as tlie law requires that the cattle be slaughtered on their ar- rival. The cattlemen of Great Bri- tain fearing the competition of Amer- ica have managed to keep this law on me lariner. uiten uie shipment, Hke faUsjia force persuading goyern. men: that it- would be unsafe because of disease existing among our cattle to allow them to -orougtit to Great Britain and kept alive. The strong influence of the landed proprietors added to the natural desire of the farmer does not see this; just as frequently, perhaps he sees it, but cannot help himself. The west- ern farmer is the one wlio will ben- efit by this Wit- ness (Independent.) Yes. "The western farmer is one who will benefit by this route but the eastern farmer has the privilege of paying for it. It is like all these great Ont., Re- view The Review voices the sentiment of a large section of the Conservative Press in Eastern Canada in- its be- littlement of the needs of the West and a selfish, narrow appeal to the Eastern farmer. It is as clear as daylight that the Review wants to lead the farmers to believe that the Liberal government at Ottawa thinking to much of the needs of the West and adding to the taxes of the farmers in the East. Talk of that kind is worthy only of "Little Can- adians." The Review man wants to take a trip to the West and see for himself this country and study it! needs. He will the West ii point of population is poorly servec with transportation facilities anc that the "building of the Grand Trunk Pacific railway, a part of the Liberal policy, is an absolute necessity, if the farmers are to find means to ship out their-grain. Closer study of transpor- tation facilities and rates, will con- vince him that the shortest -water toate possible is desirable from Fort William to the sea. The round-about route from the head of Lake Superior to Montreal is top expensive and too slow as is the'all rail route. It is the duty of the government to solve this problem, just, as it was the duty of the government to build the Trent Valley Canal to solve the transporta- tion problem in the Peterboro district. The Western farmer has his share to pay in the expense of that minor un- dertaking of benefit to a limited few, just as eastern' farmers must bear a part of the cost of the Georgian Bay a vast territory, that could swal- low" up several provinces like Ontar- FOR SICK WOMEN NO RAISE FOR CHIEF OF POLICE North Ward Residents Want Water Service A Stable on the Street Line schedule and avoid trouble and coun- cil by motion agreed.

It will open up a prac- tically unknown country and create many new towns and add to Leth- bridge's importance as a railroad cen- tre. The years to come mean much to this city. No one needs to about the future of this city. It will take very good care of itself. OUR POINT OF VIEW The growth and prosperity of the West doesn't fit in with the ideas of some of the down-east Tories. Angus A. McLean, Conservative M. P. for will probably install this system of I Edward Island whines, "The curing or any other concern that! West is getting everything." The chooses could do so, and then the is only getting what it is eniitl- market would be supplied without im- ed to, Mr.McLean, and is fast learn- ing that it foolish to trust to a party made up of parish politi- tians of the type of McLean for con- sideration of the needs of this great country that could swallow up a hun- dred or more Prince Edward Islands and then not be overloaded. porting irom across commission tried to the line, learn at The what price American bacon is laid down at Edmonton wholesale houses, but was not successful. This is an im- portant point, as it may determine the cause of the present high re- tail prices for bacon. Of course, home bacon will never be sure of a good price until the deal- ers are certain of a regular and suffi- cient supply in the province to war- rant abandoning the American ar- ticle. As it is there is no difficulty in getting all the American pork we want but there is uncertainty as to The Alberta premier was given a word of praise in an unexpected quarter the other day. In introduc- ing Premier Rutherford on the occa- sion of the opening of the Winnipeg Exhibition, W, Sanford Evans said: "The citizens of Winnipeg and of the UUt UltltT IS uu li C v tA.T LU T i -i province gave him a most hearty wel- the supply m Alberta. Once the deal- {n hig administmion convinced that Alberta farm- ers can raise enough pork to sup- ply the market, they ought to go into that his application is Cled as their is no position vacant at the present time. BUILDTXT; ON STPJEETS Engineer Arnold made the Council aware that A. Southard's brick sta- ble is one foot two inches on Duffer- in St. and ono foot seven inches on the lane. He advised that JVIr. Sou- thard be asked to make his stable conform to the Dufferin St. line and that he be given a lease for a term 01 years for a portion, of the lane covered by the stable. The Council accepted the advicb and -will grant ilr. Southard an annual lease. The City Engineer is allowing six inches for fences and buildings on the streets. This will clear nearly all the buildings but a good many, fences are outside the limit.

Ice cream and lemonaSe were served by Ben White and Will Hawkins and daughter. It was given out that there would be a baseball game and dance at the same place two weeks from that date. We would like to see the ball game take place as they have been trying to get those two nines togeth- er all summer. The picnic and ball game will take place at about lour, o'clock Saturday afternoon on the river banks ai the ford and there will be a dance afterwards up near the mine in a house. Everybody come. There will be refreshments served on the ground. We see by all the papers that the last surveying party is going to come through, here soon to settle on a rail- road between Lethbridge and gary. Cal- GOMPER'S DENIAL Erie. July Samuel Gompcr, of the American Federa- tion of Labor, said to a reporter of the Associated Press that there is absolutely no truth in the publish- ed reports that he had cabled Mr. Hearst, leader of the Independent League, urging the editor to. use his influence to prevent the league from nominating its own candidate for president, and to urge tho league to Carclsron, July The provincial government has shown its sympathy 'or our district because of the losses occasioned by the floods in a very ubstantial manner. First of all reparis were made as rapidly as possible through the acti- vity of the local member, Mr. Jno. Woolf. Next came a visit from the deputy minister of public works a. week or ten days back and now have Mr. D. McKinnon with his crew of twen- ty men to put in a new bridge across Lee's Creek. Because the changes of channel so apt to occur, the bridge will be two span, each one hundred or 'one hun- dred and ten feet with cement piers and a attached to the west side. This will be a good boon to the people south of Cardston, as 'all traf- fic from that direction must pass over the bridge to reach the mill, the ele- vators or the railway station. The- citizens of Cardston are sincerely grateful for this prompt recognition of their needs and the fact that our Main Street will be thus restored in great measure to its old time usefulness. A Trip to the North Pres. Edw. Wood and party, a'r- vived in. Cardston late Wednesday night after a six hundred mile trip in visiting .the settlements north of Cardston where are located organiza- tions of the so-called Mormons. .The party comprised the Stake president Supt. Mark A. Coombs, nrid Miss Addie Robinson and De Voe Woolf of the Sunday School Union Board, Misses Ida Archibald and Et- ta Dowdle, Patriarchs H. L. Hin- man and Jno. A. Woolf, Mrs. Jane Hinman of the Stake Relief Society Board and Mr. J. F. Brown of the High Council. The Sunday Schools were the ob- ject of attention and annu- al conferences were held at Qrton j Ward July 5th, at Bran L uu July nth, Frankberg July 12th, Pine Coulee (west of Stavely) July 13th and Claresholm July 14th Two -sessions wjre held at every point and a pro- gram prepared specially by the clas- ses of each school was rendered. .Vo more creditable showing was made by -any school visited than that held Biam east of High River s- roc- eighteen miles. The party drove to Orton, six mil- es east of Macleod and then took the train for Calgary on the 6th imt. Of course they had a scurry the met. a big delegation 'of Cardstonians. the special car cm- tinjrent not having departed and there being some twelve or fourteen who were "doing the exhibition."

Meetings were, heldT on the evening of the 7th and morning of the 3th and a good at- tendance indicated the interest all felt. By unanimous vote of the peo- ple llicie au urffunization was effect- ed. The Gleichen branch -'will be affili- ated with the Frankberg Ward, its nearest ward organization. Mr. Ralph B. Robson is the Presiding Elder, and Messrs. Langley, Moore and Jno. Naylor his aids. A Sunday School and Primary as- sociation were also organized. Upon the return to Calgary, there being a day or two. to spare, nine members of the party took advantage of the excursion rate to Banff on the 9th arid spent a day that will ever live in. memory as being one of the greatest experiences in viewing Na- ture's beauties that can come to the avera'ge mortal.
