Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 26, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta immi HERALD S'TiCPSON tance and a regular mail service. The presence of these advantages, bring him into touch with his. frjendfi end W'i'th the workl at large through the arrival of letters at>d papers. >Vhen a fanner has a farm ^to sell he invariaiWy; aays "near church, school luid pioatoAce'' knqwibg' full yfeW tiKit the proximity of the pos',-office. church and school attracts a buyer better than anything else he might mention. The government is spending a lot of money on inunigration, but seems to forget that the location of a post-ofBce as convenient as possible to �the settlers is one of the beet mag -nets for the attractiwi of new citizens. The presence of a poatofllce neor at hand appeals to the land-seeker Just as much as the presence of � railroad w'ith its 8lilppi'>g points. A post oirvg given to the lOlectric bight Co., tihoroby putting the control of the lighting atfd po;v-or of the city in the hattds of a private company. The proposition accepted l)y the city changoii Ihn petition of affairs so that it ga.ay it likes. The ITcraVd has no desire to knock tlie man who is in charge of .the city herd but we feel it our duty, nevertheless, to draw to the attontion of the citizens, the absolute foolishaess of LetMbrrdgo pretending to be a ofty when it has roaming atbout ics streets a herd of cattle-a mark of village life. Ihe herder does his best but he fails to prevent the cattle from destroying the shade trees on our streets. It is simply an outrage th.^ way .some of the tiws have been luin ed. No wonder the "heivl" is ua-popular with people who are nm-bitious to beautify the stiwls l)y lining fheiu with shade frws atn) keeping the boulevaivl in neat con -dition. The city sliouid abolish tb>! "honl" and make each individual owner of a cow responsrble for it. Lethbridge is too big a place to be anno}-ed wiih cattle Injuring property. All we ask the owners of cattle to do, is to consider how tbey would feel if a cow eame alons and deatnoy ed a tree of several year's growth. Would you not ftol Hke rfiooting the beast on the spot? Certainly you would if you have any pride for your property, and that is the way other people feel. EDITOUAL INm. of tha boya imi^ t^t^ of lietiybridge were allowed  to do as they liked. They wander about the .streets, whn; t4�Qy should be sound asleep. Tlwv talk back to their ciders and swear At their companions, bearing all thi> evidence of lack of training in ob.>l-ienre and molality. A curfew law-. effectively enforced might 'h� a icood thing rig^t here .in Letbbrldgi>. We are to have a visit from oiuoth-er pro.��s e.xcursion. It will Ik' mon this tinw. Ihe iwrty is nia.:k' up of editors of some of the Uvading impoi'.'* in the United States, 'l^hey will be here on Augtist 1 and we oug'tic to .see to it, 'thait they are given ever>-opportimity to get a gocd impivss-ion of this dintrict. Western r^ntKla wants all the Americans it can get to lopote on the ricst is .sure to attract .settlemen't to u.^. Wo don't rorpiiro the .stretching of the iuMffination in an.v articles written about this land. Plain faats tell a winning stor.v. Put in a Barent stock Is giv:otIy preferable If.>r s�>d. demonstrating tlte superiority of this country for wheat product. -ion. Mr. E. E.

Mr. Silver lia.'* lio.d so3ue e.xpeetatioD of building an eWv-iiig the land. Again, the Lot^lvljridge postofflcc officials should not Ix; comiielled to distribute the mails coming over the Alberta Railway from the Western States. The staff here has jjlenty enough labor, handling .the moiil t'ur this city, withottt ibeing compelled l.o make up mail from American points fft all over the West. A mail clerk on the south lines is 'the only remedy and . the postofflcc department should straiphtcn oirt this matter Avithout delay. MEANS MUNICIPAL OWNERSHIP To those in favor of municipal boring for gas, the action of thi> city council in accepting th� prop -ositHon of the Electric Liight Co. abouM not (be unsatisfactory, because It meana that the city will get the control of gas, if it is f^und, ait the ftgure the city expected the .boring operations to cost. If .gas is not found the city will not \ie out a cent. The Electric Light Co.'s proposition means also, that, if ffas  is found, the city must take over the electric plant. The IHerald argpuad In favor of municipal 'borioff but felt all along that the city would be compelled, if gas was found to purchase the electric light property, as the presence of natural gns here woi�M, to a great extent, destroy the value of the company's business. So tiho acceptance of the Electric Light Co.'s propo.ipa|.ities, and they will continue at it long as they can, which 'is just as long ns there is no bonus leg>is  laeion in force in the province, force 'in the province. The aboft-e from the Calgary Al'bor-tan i.s a lot of rot. Leth. bridge is not scrapping with Mc^ii -cine Hat. The woollen mill ap-proaohKl Lethbridgo w-Kh the declaration thot it waa going to leave Medicine Hat, whether Medicine Hat guarantectl its bonds or not. Leth-bridgc wants industries and after full considerattion 'decided to~ guarantee the Woollen Co.'s bonds, being oafc-guandod by a mortgage on the property of the company here ^nd ut Medicine Hat. We hardly think the .Alberton would criticise a simibir arrangement if Calgary was concer,�T ed. The general impression is that thi.s district w-ill have bumper crop.s. From the north. eo.�t. west an-l soirth the story i.s tlje same. C. (J. K. N'ourse, Georsfe Hatch. E. M. .lolvnstonc and .1. W. McNieoll. took a drive through the Coaldale diotrtct t'ho otiher .day aiKl now they ure "whooping up" for the out thera like lan:l agents. The crops they saw otit 'there estiablishes iKyond doubt in their mind that the liOtMbridge district is only on the verge of development. Biigger things are yet to come. They saw during their drive 2,0aniel of the AM,crta Realty Co. ai>d if their estSuvaite of the fortune..* these men will neap this fall are correct, Daniel and Crest will Iw able to ere:i pa'laces in ti�e city and put on all the ! airs of capitalists. The time is not far distant when Letihbridge will bo the centre of t.he great fruit district of .Alberta. The Dominioa government does not want to/appoint every n>an fired from the Ontario government ser -vice to a j(^> or soon thene will be only Ontario nten on the pay roll. Greenwood, B. C, and Phoenix. TI. C, are five miles apart. They aip connected .by railroad, and yet it takes two days for a letter to gel from one place to -the other. Another instance of Ivow m\ioh t'hc postofflcc department are out of touch with western conditions. At the mountain clinvbers gathor -ing in the Voho Valley, tivere waie three Pr. Campiiells in aittondo'ncc and one was our own doetor of that natne. As �-e aW know Dr. Camti XyeW'h initials are P. M. aivd one ol the other Dr. Canvpbells owiwid tlie initials A. M. In camp they were nicknamed "morning" ai�d "evening.' Rudolph .I.�roieux. the new master 'gmeral, is a bright, awake feWow and we iclieve attention is �quickly drawn to weak points of the mail .service Western Canada the trouble soon be remediat will supiijy the markets of the west. Keep your nkind on that, now. Fernie is .to have a new poat offlea building, ereoted by the Dominion government. To our mind, Leth-brVdge has a hundred per omt. better claim to such a building than Femie, but it looks as thou|^ it wouki take t'hc greater portion of a hundivd years to convince Wie government of ..that foot. Sir Wilfrid Laurier's conduct oi. the Sabbath Oboeryanoe measure !ias won him the praise of both sides, lie diaplayod his clever statesmanship throvfhout the discussion of the bill. Rev. I>r. .lohnston, a leading Montreal Pw^bsterian minister says: "I know very well Sir Wilfrid Laur ier has sacrificod the friendship M some of his lifelong a'dmirer.4 'becaUsi> of his stand on the bill, yet ( believe his Position wi'U be .qtrcngthi.'.n-ad, not only *n 'tlie otiter provinces, but 'in QaAec as well. It is well un-'derstood titie passage of the 'hillooMid never have been secured had it not been for his hrowl-mindod and generous support of it. Personally, and I 'believe I s|)eak for gi-eat maii.t', my altvays fervent admiration for the Premier has 'been profoundl.v in-creoAod. It is sonvething tor whi>-h Oomoda tiKMiM 'be thankful tha't our Premier wa.s willing to opposo lifelong suppo;rters for 'the sake of pa.-i.='-ing a hill dealing with a great m.iral question which he felt to be desirable for the .beat interests of the country. Quebec is naturally proud of Laur-ier, as all Canada is proud of him, atnd his sinoority and his evi.l.^it fairness commends itself to men of II partfien. If I understand tihe fee)-'incr of Quebec at all, whatever opposition fnay have been aroused hy this hill will pass, and Sir Wildr!1-.s position-will l>o strengthened ratliei than weakened. yivi Macleod fl^zotte seems to be from the heat. Its recent issues have been full of warm attacks on the Council ani .some of the officials and all because they don't see things through the Gazette's s|�ecs. It is all very well to criticise fairly, but venomous attacks don't count for much. The Gazette bases its coui-se on the following theory: Kicking against wrong, kick.img n-gainst mismanagement ol public affairs and events, kicking against stupidi-ly, negligence and petty sel -(isbness in the conduot of town ot-: fices or committees for the purpose ' of preventing the recurrence of such ' things is not knocking the 'town. If it is, the term may be properly ni�-piiod to tisi we propose to keep up suc-h kicking. W-story has taught us that the kickef accom-pl'islirs good. It was the kicking of a few who caused tlie. Magna Charter to lie granted at Sunnymeade. It was tb3 kicking of Hampden against, the imposition of ship money which he could have paid easily that caused the civil wars of the Cromwellian period, the death of' Charles I and the wise laws that resulted, it �-as the kicking of a few New England inber. that all the money spent in publicity for Lothbridge will come back ton fold to every raitepayer in a few yews," says the Lic^thbridge, Alta., Herald, and there is a good^dcat of homely truth in I'hait remark, too, and its applicable ito other places than Lethbridge. It pays to let the people know what you have. Maclcol3VoTo'oioloio!b.n.o AoTo.o.o.o.o.oTo.o;^^^ o/ \' USE T.\BEI�l FIHE CL.Vy.. Pressed Brick '�AXtA Sandstone Oo. Calgary. a I (Calgary Herald.)
