Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 29, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRJDOE WEEKLY HERALD Lethbridge Herald PRINTING CO.. LTD. W. A. Buckaiu, Director and Editor. SUBSCRIPTION In Advance a year Otheriwte a year ADVERTISING Per Month per Inch LETHBRIDGE'S FUTURE making a trip.through the Canadian West remarks upon the remarkable growth of towns along the new rail- road fines and upon what railway construction means to the growth of towns. There are one hundred sta- tions along the main line of the C. N. R. between Winnipeg and Edmon- ton and there will be as many more on the C. P. E. line from Winnipeg to Wetaskiwin. Another hundred will be along the main line of the G. T. P. and half as many on the C. P. R. extension from Lacombe to Saska- aggregate is held by the English.

Thi O.nadbn Courier a thoroughly independent weekly, in a recent issue. devoted some attention to 'Canada's development since the aggressive Liberal policy of immigration was in- augurated after Sir Wilfrid Laurier came to power. The Courier does party not mention the Liberal in its article other than to commend as the leaders in this immigration movement Hon. Clifford Siftoc and Hon. Frank Oliver, the two able men who have directed this branch of the government since 1896. As is well known the Liberal party took over the reins of government in 1835 and the Courier, points out that ior the calendar year ending June 30th 1397, the total number of im- migrants to Canada was by June 1903, another figure was added to the sum, which became in June of 1903 the first figure of the sum was doubled and the aggregate became -262.469. Thus in eleven years the increase of total irnmisration to Canada, was from which is an expansion of more than twelve hundred per cent, or more than one hundred per cent, every year. This of course includes every na- tionality admitted. Separate figures for the British people arrivals are equally instructive. In 1897 total of British immigration reached in June 1903, the number for the nsc al year reached again in JUIK 1908, the aggregate for twelve months had jumped to which was an increase of more and mon than a hundred per cent, over 1906 1907, and a total increase of nearly eleven hundred per cent, for the per- iod, or nearly doubling the original aggregate each year. As to the proportionate arrivals of English, Irish and Scotch, the fig- ures show that the Scotch have con- tinued to than either of the other two; although the large tion or social organizp.tious. "We have in Canada, in our na- tural resources of agriculture, three vast areas; we have coming eastward from the Atlantic, prac- tically a thousand miles in round figures, where you may have in the summer, as you have in Other countries, apple blossoms and clo- ver and these are two conditions of rural life that make human life and human civilization capable of per- manence at their last. I do riot know any other two conditions that define the natural resources of a with equal simplicity and aptness as do apple blossoms and clover. As soon as you leave that area you enter an area of ail kinds of risks for stability, prosperity and Dr. Wilbert Mclntyre, M. P. for strathcona in an admirable article in the Canadian Courier, makes reply to the- professor's statements and shows that the country is undergo- ing a true development. He. points >ut that the raising of one hundred million bushels of grain in a terri- tory, fifty years ago considered an uninhabitable wilderness, and the planting of eleven million trees in seven years by the people of the West can surely be counted as velopment. The farmers of the West use more scientific means of farming as a rule than do the easterners and their intensive farming as demon- strated by the raising of sugar beets is on a par with that of the older pro- The learned professor speaks of ap- ple blossoms and clover as being 'the two conditions of rural life that make human life and human civiliz- ation capable of permanence at their last." Dr. Mclntyre points out that these are emblematical of comfort and luxury and the history of the nations of the world has proven con- clusively that the conditions that make for luxury nro the conditions thnt more than -any other for tlv.- nation's decay nnd downfall.

In Alberta we have our thousands of acres oi alfalfa and all over the West apples are being suc- cessfully raised, not in large quanti- ties it is true, because of the pecul- iar conditions, but the success is none the less truly demonstrated. The suc- cess in raising of small fruits exceeds even that of the East. Settlers com- ing to older Canada had to meet new twenty-one weeklies and will pay for the publication of pertinent para- graphs making clear the Unitarian view. This looks too much like run- ning the church as a business. i' Since the; inception of the Govern- ment of this Province the ideal of the executive heads has been to con- duct the affairs of state as much as possible upon of an enter- prising business firm.

The new conditions of i the West are being met with greater rapidity and success and the time is not far distant when we shall have apple blossoms and clover in all the beautiful profusion of the East. When Professor Robertson learns the real meaning and true signs of permanent development he should make another visit to the West and he will find ample proof ihat the West is being built on a sure found- ation and that it is undergoing a true development and that her per- rnaneoy is assured.

A second force main and stand pipe is absulutely necessary. It is only the other day that Grand Forks, B. C., suffered a loss of nearly by fire. Had the water supply been adequate the disaster might not have occurred. Lethbridge ratepayers should see that the city always has a water supply more than sufficient to meet the needs of the city. From several parts of the country demands are coming in. to the Prov- incial Government for more repre- sentation in the legislature. These demands, in some measure, arising from the increased settlement of the country in the past three years, ara mainly based upon the fact that In the Province there are as yet no municipalities, road work and Consequently all bridges have to be the central govern- ment, which in turn has to be advis- ed by the local member, and if he has too large a district to represent the district is liable to suffer through unintentional neglect.
