Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 6, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta :trbri06e herald MumMicoHLm Or D. AUSTIN. and ManafCr. W. JORDAN, S�pi. of Job Departownt. 14. ,4 SUBSCRIPTION:-I.a Advance - �1.S0 a year ,v' ,Oth�rwis9 - 2.00 a year m m ADVERTISINO: ' rVir Month  1.00 Per Inch ipcrusc th� ,fjcct of advertising ils manufacturing attractions is n good one. .An-d such a hurea'u in coiisirioriiig tho claims of various indu.strie.s would not take everylhiiig for grontofl. [ TlicWoridofSpcrt J One of the interesting visitors in town to-day is Senator IXfveber of l^thbridgc. In his younger e surprising that the more staid statesman of middle age should ye* l)w founfl with a youthful j heart and a wholeeomc imoi-est in j up the grouch of some fresh young pla.\cr who fancioH ||e hu.s been injured. The umpire, the pla>-crs. and the public have mutual obligations. Ar+.^ie O'Dea docs not run as if he were going fast but he is n hard man to cntch on the. bo.ses just the same. ODR POINT IF VIEW Now that the city is to have a numbering of houses, why should not the streets receive attention al.sc? .Sooner or later the antiqiuated uum-; ing: o( our thortughfares must be changed and the sooner the better. An it IS now tiie names of our straet hearno relation to each other. More than tlint, the terms "streets" "avenues" and "roads" have no fiignificAncc. Bompas street, Argylo Avenue and .London Boad arc para.i-el cutting narttett street and Westminster Road at right angles. What i.s theiV! in the imming of the streets :to guide anyone? Wh.v not discard the 'Old names and num.|)ci' the Streets? One street, say Uesipath -Street or Kound street, could Ije taken as a centre. The thoroughfares woukl be numbered as they ai-e distant from the centre. Those running one direction to be called streets and those in the othei', avenues. The difflcuUy of finding ami reniemilxiring the location of houses and lotswouki be retluced to a minimum, and Llio city would be up-to-date in tiiis important matter. To the average present-day citizen of Lethbridge the names of tho �treeta have no significance. Sucli terras as Crabb, Ford, Bartlett, or Wood have no meaning to him and there will lie no regrets because of the passing of the names, that in the early days may have ha Wost.

We notice that a Japanese Princo is to pass through Canada on his return home ifroin England. The pajiers tell us he is to stop off atMontreal, n'orontos Ottawa and Winnipeg bvit no't a word of a visit to Alberta. Now we would like to make a sug-gcst.ion to the Lieutenant Governor �of this province that he invite the Prince to bo his guest. As tlio Prince is travelling on the main line of the C.P.K. ho could not Ije ex -liected to branch off at Calgary ami go north to the Oubematorial heacl-iiuarters but the Lieutenant Governor can afford to go south to Calgary, the Alberta metropolis, and enter -tain the Royal Guest there. "Why the ne:ti of all this fu.ss over a foreign prince?" some of our readers may ask. Well, we possess an idea that very soon Japan is to be one of Alberta's .best customers for the pro-iluce of our farm.s are full but the necessary single is in�t forthcoming.

We ert ami Pennington were tho opposing pitchers. Umpire Knowlton gave the game to the Hat alleging that the visitors were trying to delay tho game. After their strenuous time al the Oas City, our roprwsentntivcs jour -ney�l to the capital and ofienad up that series with the best gams of the seflson.

The best way to ; reach that position is for local men to invest all the money they con in , industries. We notice that the city of St. Thomas, Ont., is going tohavo n car factory, financed by S't. Thom-^os money. The people in that city, and Wo ought to realize it even more here, realize that if there is one thing in Canada of which there is no over production, it is passcng�>r, freight awl Hat cars. So they are going to start and manufacture thenv and ex- | Iicct to give etoployraent to 500 poo- ; pie. ! 'I �."5,000 or ItUKl..' All boost and no bust. II looks as if Umpire Knowlton has it in for the Lethbridge fellows, or that thoy have it in for him, or bolli.

Tho players are going to get all they can for nothing anil no ball plaj'crs will blame tlicm. The funs too will try to lilulT his iir.ip's " into favoring their pets. But this autocratic ruler is paid to hear, no fan And to favor no player or team. He has no right to curry the favor of fans, players, or man -agers by ' "siiunring" his. decisions. He should know tho game, watch it with eagle c,\'cs,.aMl give his decis -Ions accordingly. Ho will mnkc mistakes at times no ilouht. Tho public will excuse that, but when an umpire evidently shows fceliag cithor foY or against any player or club, its patience is promptly exhausted, �'layers and fans want no partiality but a square doal for all hands, On tho other hand, the uijipire should gvt a square deal. The unt-pire is but human with limitations j common to the rest of humanity. Tho average iiinpire gives decisions on the plays just as ho sees them and plays no favorites as it is - to his interests to give satisfaction.
