In adriact yet but it is destined to be one of tho groat. cities of, tho west. have litre, Mr. Hnrris very, properly points out, great'agricultural riches as well as tho uTfal productive coal area in tlio west.

'I'lio very fact ttuit properties H.djoin Henderson Park make them not only deiirnblo Hiid In our opinion around tho park will be found the finest homes of the city in a very few years. Some of the subdivisions Mr. Harris has treat- ed so kindly are not in'the aamo claea j with this pnir. It is always that a fine residential section is to be found around a park. Watch and see if that Isn't the caso with l.ethbridgo. The very fa'ct that local people are heavy bu.vera in these subdivisions Is proof thp.f. they are good Investments. OUR POINT OF VIEW Those ready made farms at Coal- dale will soon be a reaiity, Well, we're getting plenty of rain just now. Lethbririge has every reason think well of its football team. Borden's Skeleton POOR BOKDfcV WInle lie is the mucfi feted gucct o the King and people of .Great Bntaii a feast there-Is a -okolc tori, in every strain .or music a dis- cordant note, in every speech some- thing that.-jars. That awful It will npt'-dowii. If he talks to the 'King, behold It is there, "making cautions Canadian pre- miers protestations of If he Desponds" to a toast in the' presence a cheering host, behold it is there, in person and Bourassa over the sea. He must needs be careful] for fear. what he says Is repeated in the homes of Nationalism. Mf he is in conversation the press, behold the. spectre is present. news of" the navy but say anything for-: fear They want he dare not the calm thought -of "the midnight or early morning hours will cause liim to change his mind. Uneasy lies the head that carries .a navy question; it's dreams houTs full of spectres, fears and misgivings. Ah! no! the premier's trip to the heart, of the Empire is HO holiday jaunt; he has 110 pleasure in it. Football is a good cleun game am Leihbrldgc has clever exponents, o; this popular pastime. The idea of securing: the island in the river for a park is wet! worth serious consideration. Barons celebrated and then it cot gas. If the gas pans out well It will celebrate again. Lethbridge on" its merits as an im portent business centre, Is entitled to a.substantial post office building. The Crow line provides enough traffic fcr a through Pullman to Win- nipeg. Don't let tho agitation for it simmer. A Roosevelt man says Taft, is the third party candidate. Well, It looks as though he would end up third ill the presidential race.. "Trees and telegraph poles blown down, and crops cut to pieces." No, not in Alberta but in Ontario. Don't think that other parts of the world arc never struck bv misfortunes. It would have''been better to have paved first avenue to the depot than Third avenue to Thirteenth street. It looks as though it was too late now to get the work done this year. The Herald does not pretend to be an authority on subdivision values, but It holds the opinion that properly close to a-park or a street-railway line is bound-to become valuable and holders of lots in-such subdivisions bne no need to worn Toronto Saturday Night, says-Gait Park is worth a million dollars to this city. Now that the grass is grpw dud the tioneis are in blocm, we must admit that this-estimate-is-not too high. It will double In value to the people ,next year, top. The Coming Exhibition TXDICATIONS point to the Leth j_ bridge annual exhibition being the biggest and best of'those held. This it should be events like the exhibition are so many notches 'marking the pro i'gress and development of the citj and district. The bigger the con Vlrast between tha -present and its pre- decessor in magnitude and! interest ;iind in favor of the former, so much '.does it indicate a forward stride. Space in the main- buildings, -we ".understand, is being rapidly taken up, and Jocal -merchants have .received, a hint that; they should lose flo. time in engaging the same for their several exhibits. Itjs well, therefore, that they .should take time by ihe forelock and make the necessary arrangements. iThis will not only save any quent.disappointment, but will relieve" .the labors of the management by preventing any undue stress. Thefe ought to be individual effort to make his -exliibit the best ever. Thej better the local exhibits: so much the I better as an" advertisement for Leth- for, the energy and entcr- 'pris.e .of its business men. The ar- rangement of exhibits on art artistic basis means a great deal to its adver- tising value here there is a scope for .ranch ingenuity. It is, bj no means too eiiU to work ti.ut schemes in this direction. The num- ber of Iqcal woultl also mean ti great'deal, and the larger these are from a numerical point so much better for the benefit ot the whole. Grandstand attractions are to on a larser and., more interesting' scale This is satiafactor} for there Is .of improvement in this judging from previous dis- plays. The! matter is an important one and the management, is well? advised in giving this serious atten- tion. Let the numerous visitors have something to talk aboiit when they return' something to look 10 .without disappointment when-' thev. exhibition comes round again. If outsiders cannot be induced to build an abbatofr and cold storage plant, how would it be for local ital to invest in the cap The Toronto Saturday Night man couldn't find rnueh fault with Leth bridge. That was only ;to be expect ed. An abbatoir and a cold .-storage plant in Lethbridge .would be a.igreat stimulus to mixed farming in the south. Lethbridge' wants industries it can support. An .abbatoir and a. cold stor- age plant, it is being proved, are of that kind. AH power to .Mr. Lathrop in his efforts In thiaVdirection. f Mr. Haultain says reciprocity had most to do with his-defeat in Sas- katchewan lie been even more candid and admitted that lie flop on that question did the trick. Western people dqn't admire .weak kneed men. Defeat at the finish of a strenubuc week's football' 'while admittedly-- a disappointment, to their hundreds of admirers in this city, leaves the. Lcth- [bridge competitors for the Peoples Shield, the emblem, of the champion- ship football in .Canada, in the first rank. The team's record was of the highest order. ..They played firstclass football all through and undoubtedly left the impression on soccer enthus- iasts at Winnipeg that :this city is the home of footballers'-artio know all.the flne points about the game. They reached the finals because their play ing in even' instance deserved'. suc- cess. Lethbridge citizens are proud of-the team and will back them In another effdrt to'capture'the coveted trophy. Governments and Governments WHEN V PLACb has reached the pioporuons of Lethbndge it la entitleU to a post offi arid a land titles office, whether it .elects a supporter of the party in power or not. Partisanship of the narrowest type seems to possess gov ernments in their treatment of'this .city. When the Liberal government was in power at Ottawa the Herald criticised it for neglecting this city in the matter of a post office. Leth- bridge's postal business then .warrant- ed a proper post office building. To- day the business is much greater but there is no post, office in sight. The Conservative.government seems to, be-as careless of our interests as the old. It is poor politics, in fact, It isn't politics at all. Lethbridge, a city of ten thousand population, with ,a postal revenue of if simple -justice had been meted out. would shave, bad a post office building ssv- eral.years ago. It is an outrage thai- this city has to put up with the post "office .accommodation it'has at pres- ent., Our. post office quarters can'be duplicated and improved upon- in a hundred .towns and villages in Can- Jda. are made to-suffer simply .Kecaiise the constituency in which the .jcfty is located, happens to return an opponent of the government. One party is as bad. as another in this respect.'and it is high time our SOT- ernments abandoned picayune poli- tics.'and followed higher motives in locating: public buildings. As to the-land'titles office .the posi- tion is The Alberta govern- ment still adheres to the centraliza- tion system which has proved.itself to ;be-inefficient arid in- Alberta trv offices There should begone in eadh judicial district, as in Ontario. The lo- cal: government1 has-not announced a change in its .policy'in this matter, bill if.any new land titles offices are to- be created, this city should re- ceive first .consideration. The neces- sity for one Is sreat. We have placed our claims before the government, in fact Lethbridge 'was the first place-in the province to make application for a land titles office. This city, is the largest business centre In the south. For that reason alone it should be considered favorably when a new office is Politics should not'be a factor in the decision.. The office should come to Lehbrldge "for several reasons. It is centre of a big district; the greater proportion of the land titles business at the Calgary office outride Calgary comes from- Lothbridge, and ii la favored as the location by mpst of Ine. tonns in the south.
