MAXWELL HELGERSON Alberta Block, Lethbridge PINCHER CITY Although Pincher City is younji in years it is oHl in exper- ience, and if its whole history were written in full it would furnish very interesting reading t.o those who are noi familiar with early struggles, and many would be sprprised at it. reaching its present magnitude if they knew of the many obsta- cles with which il had to contend and overcome. It is hardly necessary t.o men- tion that Pincher City bus had a strong rival town, and some of its have nor always used fair means in an endeavor to get :i strangle hold on Pincher City with a view of putting it out of business. Pincher City's first hotel had a short but eventful lif-1. 'H: parties who had a year lease on the building were in business but a short time, when a bus- iness man of our who at. that time "had more money than business foresight, and had bis financial strength very much 'overestimated purchased tiie hotel building on the instalment plan, making a substantial cash payment on the deal. n a short time afterwards the licen- se was cencelled. This master stroke was intended for a knock out blow to Pincher City, but the blow fell short and the ag- gressor 'cst the stakes (or the instalment) and this was the cause of the building the magni- ficent hotel which is giving the public _ satisfactory service ar. Pincher City at the present time. The license for the new hotel was strongly opposed by the same party and be actually had the audacity to question the de- cision of the License Commis- sioners who had recommended the granting of the Hotel Licen- se and unwisely resorted to the .supreme court for a decision in the matter, where th-anlcs to Canadian justice, he was again defeated and assessed thi? costs of his interference wit.U the pro- gress of Pincher City. In organizing and establs'ning the boundary lines of the Pin- cher City School District we again met fierce opposition, but after the matter was Invest'gat- ed by the proper authorities the decision was in favor of The con- tention of Pincher City and as a we have a fine school building where the youths of Pincher City are now being ed- ucated. Pincher City has progressed wonderfully considering the many obstacles with -vhich ir. had to contend and brush aside and some of the obstacles it re- quired considerable ;ime 10 brush them aside, as they not yield t.o the brush very read- ily, but Pincher City is now at. the top of the grade, is es- tablished on a solid basis, and can now use its time, money an.d energy in developing into a real city, instead of as heretofore of having1 to use same fighting and brushing aside obstructions which retarded its development For the benefit of those who might think, or might have been told that Pincher City 3.5 yei, is of very little if any importance we will state that it is locati-d in i. he business and railway r li- tre of the immense Pinrhor District. Everything shipped in to this immense uistnei must come lo Pincher City also thing shipped out of this imnn'ii- se district must be shipped from Pincher City, people coming in. and going out of the district. must come and KO by way of Pinchtr City. It. has a C. P.
