Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 7, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta HERALD! MINTING CO., LTD. W. A. BUCHANAN, MaM|)ig Director. W. JORDAN, Sapt. of Job Dtpartncnt. Manitoba will be back to Its nor. imal condition to-morrow. The elections will be over then. s, SUBSCRIPTION: In Advanco  91.60 a year Otherwise  93.00 a year ADVERTISING; Per Month - 1.00 Per Inoh OUR POINT 0F VIEW Now how high will roal ostato go \ .when gas is struck. Chcor up, Lethbrldgo is going to ' bo a big city. Lcthbrldgo Is too good a placo to knock. If you do knock now, you can't do any harm anyway. Every railroad .accident, no mnttor how small some of them may bo, should be investigated thoroughly If the railroads arc proved to bo negligent, they should bo severely punished. Railroads to-day arc causing more deaths than the most virulent dis cases. Saskatchewan is to' havo a Supremo Court, consisting of a Chief Justice and four Justices. There will bo eight district Judges.

U. maud tor b�m* helped directly to send those two girls reeling down H.hcdnrk treot to-God nlonc knows what tharo will bo bugaboos raised that the province wilt lose heavily In this scheme. Just to prove, that public qwnorshlp pays handsomely let me. quote, tho following despatch from Port Arthur,- Ont.: "The population of this town Is conslderabfy less than 10.000 but nevertheless last year It made a net profit of $8885 from its electric lighting plant. Tho town also owns its own telephone plant and is In competition with tho Hell company, but for all that it cleared $2055 during 1900. Tho telephones are $24 for business phonos and $12 for residences. The cost of Installation was $50-000 and tho plant has already paid for itsolf. Tho town also o|>crt\tf!s a municipal street railway system which runs between how and tho twin town of Fort William with n population of 11-000. During 1000 tho revenue from fares, freight and advertising amounted to $63,722.31 and tho total expenditure amounted to 820,408 less than that. Tho fares on the line are 5 cents for single" fares with six tickets tor 25 cents, workmen eight tickets for 25 cents, and children ten for 25 cents. This town is held up as an example to others in tho Canadian northwest and with such u record a monopoly has but a poor chance of obtaining a franchise In "tho last vest." Our proof that Southern Alborta is growing is tho fact thnt throe now postolTlces wore opened this month. Many new offices aro stPl ncedod, but the department seems to bo very tow In realizing that tact. A town is to bo started at Wood-pockor. If it expects to amount to anything it must change Its name. Criticisms may be offered to evangelists, but one thing It certain and that Is, that men like Mr. Ranton work hard. It ta a big strain on a man to preach every night in the week and threo or four times on Sunday. That was Mr. Rnnton's record while hero and we question whether anybody In tho city workod as hard in tho same period of time Somo 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 a tip. Mr. Robortaon, tho Opposition leader at Edmonton is a picayune typo 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 Rigor, which Mr. Robertson represents.

Canadians had hopes, though not very great, that Eddie Duman, the nephew of Ned Haulan, would bring back to its proper resting place the emblem of the world's sculling championship, but George Towns, the Australian proved too much for him, anil our hopes were dashed to tho ground. Tho wedding took place in Bran don on Monday, at tho residence the bride's uncle, of Gordon Sinclair Parker, eldest ton of Capt. Parker, of the R.N.W.M.P., Medicine Hat, and Miss Mabel Miller, until recently matron of the Brandon lAsylum.
