Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 7, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta IinffiRIDGE BERALO nUNTING CO.. LTD. W^A BUCHANAN. Mau(iai Dinctor. W. JORDAN.

Cheer up, Lethbridga is going to be a big city. ZiCthbrldge is too good a place to knock. If you do knock now, you do any harm anyway. can't Every railroad .accident, no matter how small some of them may be, should be investigated thoroughly. If the railroads are proved to b� negligent, they should be severely punished. Railroads to-day are causing more deaths than the most'vinilent diseases. Saskatchewan is to' have a Supreme Court, consisting of a Chief Justice and four Justices. There will be eight district Judges. Mr. Sherman claima the Alberta government turned the miners down. Kuw all the government did, was to decide not to introduce an eight hour day law until a commission had investigated conditions. Surely the minors are prepared to put in thb limelight of an investigation, as welt as the operators. Mtaltoba Will be back to its nor-'jual- condition to-morrow. The election* will be oVer then. The goblins moy catch Roblin in Uanitoba today. Our proof that Southern Alberta Is growing is the fact that three new postofflcee wore opened this month. Uany new offices are still needod. but the department seems to be very slow in realising that fact. A town is to be started at Woodpecker. If it expects to amount to anything it must change its name. Criticisms may be offered to evangelists, but one thin^ it certain and that ia, that men like kr. Ranton work hard. It ia a big strain on a man to preach every night in the week and three or. four times on Sunday.' That was Mr. Ranton's record while here and wo question whether anybody in the city worked as hard in the same period of time Some people say tipping is a form of gambling. It is certainly a gamble if you will not got what you want in some places unless you give tip. Mr. Robertson, the Opposition leader at Kdmonton is a picayune tyi^o of statesman. Last fall he declared the Minister of Public Works had been very fair in the expenditure of public money in the constituency of High Riger. which Mr. Robertson re-preseats. In the Oleichcn bye-elec  tion the Tories tried to influence vote* for their candidate by declafr-ing that a constituency in opposi -tion was better treated than oneire-presented by a government supporter. In spite of all this Mr. Robertson is trying to make out now that High River hasn't been given a qua!re deal. His views seem to chaufe with tbe wind. The trouble with Mr. Shenmin is that he is a kicker. Even if the miners got all they asked for, yes and more, Sherman would not cease to kick. It seems to bo a diseaec with him. Lethbridge ahould take advantage of the provisions of the new free library bill. If there is one thing more than another that this city needs it is.a free library. are aiwoiy* mtuiD^abaut sueeeasful operation of utilities by municlpaVitics or goviemmcnts.'] .'^going into pullic ownership extensively and there will be bugaboos raised that the province will lose heavily in this scheme. Just to prove that public i^whcrship pn.v.a handsomely let mc quote the following despatch from Port Arthur.- Ont.: "The population of Uiih town ia considerabfy less than 10.000 but uoycrtholess lost year it mado a net profit of f8S85 from its electric lighting plant. The town also owns its own telephone plant and is in competition with the Bell company, but for all that it cleared SauSS during 1906. The tclephonoa are S24 for business phones and $12 for residences. The cost of installation was $30-000 and the plant has already paid for itself. The town operates a municipal street railway system which runs between hero and the twin town of Fort Wiltinnt with a population of 11-000. X>uring 1906 the re^'enuo from fares, freight and advertising amounted to $63,722.31 and tho total expenditure amounted to $1>0,403 less than that. The |. fur^ on the line are 5 cents for stngl(eaking against the motion. The attorney general said that the regulation oi the atreet railway traffic might have been incorporated in the Dominion Railway act but that tho Dominion had wisely left this to the provinces so that they might suit � themselves.

The Alberta government is prepare ed to do more for labor and the laboring man, than any other provincial government in the Dominion. In the liglit of the terrible disas  ter in Montreal, the school board cannot do too. much to provide plenty of flro protectian and encourage Ore drills among tho pupils at ou^ schools. The News has berated, the Alberta Government time and again about its failure to treat Lethbridge right. Now when a penitentiary is to be located here it gets cross and begins to cry, just tiecauae it cannot get its way. The Heaald is a machine organ. Oh yes, jutt hs much as another paper we know is independent. It is always a delight of the cd)--porations to tell of the failure of public ownership ventures, but they The appointment of Geo. W. Robinson to the position secretary-treasurer of this city is one that will be heartily approved of by .tho citizens in general. Mr. Robinson is an .old resident, of the city, and having been alderman for several years, including the past fifteen months, is eminently qualified to carry on the business pertaining to the offlce. His integrity, ability, and experience no one can gainsay, and the city is to be congratulated on securing so efficient a civic official. business, that it would be foolish for them to talk business matters over, witii them. But. no matterhow much experience you may have had, no iittatter woot a great brain you may have had. no matter what a great.'brain you may Jiave, you need on Day Act which went into effect Mairch Ist. To this Mr. Robertson said that the people themselves would preserve the sanctity of the Lotd's .Day and would lie their own moral censors. Mr. Cushing thought that if this were true there would be little use the swiftness and the accuracy, of j'or legislatures or laws against mis-woman's instinct to keep you from demeanors. making alliance with bad men. and from foolish things generally."- London Pree Press. KIPL1N(3 a PIlOHtBITIONIST. Rudyurd Kipling says in his .^er-lean Notes concerning what he saw in a Concert Hull in Ruffaio: Whereupon Don Heibert grew prophetic and said that we had come to the time when the people had thelaws within their hands. 'I do not think' he said.."that the religious point of view should coitoe in at all." Mr. Robertson termed the whole thing medieval legislation and asked that tho clause be dropped oil the The other oycuing one of our leading citizens ' attended Evangelist Ranton's mooting. Some time after tke meeting was over ho dotorminod to go to see tho preacher Slid u|>on inquiry found that he was at the jhome of one of our citizen's most intimate friends, into whose home he Was accustomed to enter with -put ceremony. , He watkeid in and was surprised to see the floor littered with baby's clothes, as he knew his -ziond had no children. It was only when he saw a woman enter ihn rooiu with a .baby in her arms that he realized his mistake. Thirty cents was too much to oiTer to buy our fricnddut. He felt cheaper. For wit, argument, eloquence, appeal, laughter and tears, wo havo seldom heard anything to equal the addressi given at tho Methodistchurch by Evangelist Ranton, last Sunday lafternoou. The Hochelaga School disaster in Montreal brings forcibly to our mind the dangers of poorly built schools and other public buildings. Fire drills are not sufficient to save pupils in school. Fire escapes shoold be provided at several points in the building ai^ careful tra^nin|( given to the pro|)or uso of them. IT WORKED.

Mr. Rosenroll called it legislation with a vengeance inspired- by oldtime Puritanists that had ne\-er been a benefit to the municipality. Simmons argued that the purpose of the bill was to get for the working men one day of rest! The motion was put and" carried as recorded. The legislature spent the whole of the evening on tho same act'in committee of the whole but did not complete it. No radical changes fromtho original text of the* bill ar* fdroshad-owed.
