Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 14, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta JPGE HERALD fRiNTING CO., LTD. IV W.Va. BUCHANAN. Maufiif DIrtcter. W. JORDAN. Sayt. of Jok OcfirtMOt SuBSCRlPTtON: In Advanoo - 91.60 a year OtherwiM  93.00 a yaar ADVERTIsma; Par Uonth  91.00 Per Inoh OUR POINT IF VIEW The Medicine Bat News celebrated its fourteenth birthday last week. It is twenty-four years since the paper \'-as started under another name. The editor lays claim with Hon. Frank Oliver and Si Saunders to bo among the fathers of journalism in Alberta, but still shows �igns of being yoimg and progrea -aive. Hon. L. P. B'.*odeur, mtniater of marine and fisheries, spoke very truly when he said that Canadian lake ports should be kept open lat er in the season. The longer season will enable more of our grain to go over Canadian routes, and Mr. Bro-deur will receive the gratitude of the west if he keeps the lake-ports open for a lunger sieaaon. It it to be hoped that Edward Brown's defeat in Manitoba will not cause him to retire from public life. He is too clean, honest and able a man to lose. It will not be long before the people of Manitoba will be glad to plaos. H. Woolford. Ho is modem .ia ,his methods and that is what co.upU now a days. That was a sorry day to the north when Medicine Hat captured the first prins in the spring wheat classes. it in meeting the needs of the south and our local reprceentatlve is cer-tainl>-4looking after the interests of his constituency faithfully and well. It is reported that n company has secured a portion of the river-boitcm," din'cily west of the city Tor a hog ranch. Such a locution for such an industry Is linrdly agrooablo to the citizens, who will broatho and suioll the gontlo voatorn zephyrs. Wo believe the city could uso this property for jmrk purposes to bettor advantage from tho citizens stand -point. A hog ranch is a good thing but not on tho wost side of the city if you please. The Lotnbridge public should interest themselves in the important 'question of school accommodation. Tho present situation calls for a brond, far-seeing policy on tho port of tho Bonrd of Ktlucntion. A heartily e.vprossed opinion from tlio public supporting such a policy will greatly aid tho Bonrd. A great future is before this city and we must prepare ..tor, it. The Minister of the Interior will do a good thing for the country by keeping under government control the coal lands. If a company pays several thousand dollar^ rental per annum, it will not delay its devclop-montoporations, but will proceed to work tho mines to get their' money back. The South is not finding it difficult to prove that it is the great grain raising section of Alberta. Watch us improve, tqo. All M. P. at Ottawa introduced a bill tq.^reve|it the importation of cigarettes. Yes, ^e accursed things �hould go. Sir Wilfrid Laurier says it diaguats him .every time lie sees a Ia(t puffing . at a. .clgaiiette. So say we all. Lethbridge is well thought of in the Xorth. On the trains and in the hotels, people are frequently heard to remark that it ia to be the big ity of the South. The announcement is made that twenty-five thousand dollars is the sum to bp spent here in the securing of proijcrty and the building of a ' provincial jail. There should be a provincial Jail in tae metropolis of the most densely populated district in the west. The government is to .be commended for the way in which ment is passing a law t^at is graat- ly in advance of the old law, and ono that places Alberta in the front rank among the provinces In temperance legislation, i Aitornpy-Ucncrul Cross sumnxid up tho policy of tho government in tho following torso sentences: I "In ci.nclusion, I may say that the present leg:islution, added to what was piiS3od at tho last session of tho legislature, will show very plainly and clearly to tho txiopio of this country that tho government are strongly In, favor: ) (1). Of any legislation which affords a well grounded hope of cur- ! tailing and restraining the drinking habit. i "(2). Of closing entirely unlicensed drinking places. I "(3). Reducing the sale and. consumption of intoxicating liquors. "(4). The prevention of the sale of liquors on Sundays and during prohibited hours. "(5). Tho enforcement,of stringent regulations regarding sanitary ar  rangemcnts of hotels. I "(G) The most rigorous enforce  ment of the license law in every particular. The Liberal party in Alberta in following out this policy will keep � up the traditions of tho party as tie-ing the hope of the temperance people in the country. THE LlQUOil ORDIXANCE. Tho nnienUnients to the liquor ordinance proposed b,y Attorney-Gon -tral Cross mean a big step toward the abolishing of the liquor traffic. The anienchxicnts are gbod. and the Attornoy-Ooneral says that the law will bo rigidly enforced. Under the proposed law, the ac -|Conunodati()n must be greatly inex-;Cess of that now demanded before a license will be granted, thus assuring a better class oi hiitels. M.iru v,!r.-the population requirement* are in -creased so that now there must bo forty residences within an area of a suction and a half before a license will be grunted. Plans for building must be submitted to the Gonnnissioners^ before tho building is commenced and the license can not lio granted until the building is completed. By forbidding the cashing of time checks on hotel promises tho government has gone a long way toward removing one of the greatest evils of the liquor truffle. The law is very stringent regard -ing tho sale of liquor to persons under twenty-one years of age and does not allow mirioi-s" to loaf around hotel premises. While miiny would have liked to have seen the government shorten the hours of selling and take -a sbep toward abolishing the bar yet every one must admit that the govern- ilGOSSlP ON THE SIDE My! How the real estate liars up ^ north do delight in knocking the � south. But they struck a snfi^ the I other day when they begad to "blabber and blurt" to Thos. Woolford of Card.ston. It was at the Alberta ' Hotel. Edmonton, a real estate man made himself acquainted with Mr. Woolford and enquired if he was interested in farm lands. Mr. Woolford naturally replied "yes." Then the seller of Imd began to lie, until I tho Cardston man pulled him up short. Ho said ho could sell him farm lands from 915 to 940 an acre. , The north was the place to buy, the south was nu good. The north had taken all the prizes at the seed grain fair. That Was too much for Wool-jford. Heturned in and told thetruth He said he belonged to the south and came from the district that captured every prize in Alberta Red. first prize in milling oats and second in two rowed barley, while another part., of , pouthorn Alberta, Medicine jSaif'got'the first prizes in the two grades of spring wheat. Mr. Woolford drove tho real estate tmin into the liars corner so quickly that the poor fjllow moide the liveliest dash for fresh air a man ever made. It would'pay the south to keep a man in ^hs north like Ur. Wo9tt�rd all the time, to combat theap prevar  ioators.

"The Lord ia alwaye on the side of the big battalions." Interpreting Napoleon's remark to the standing of the part^ ics in Alberta, it is easily to be underatopd that-Mr. l^borUon is leading the weali Side because the Lord is with the Oovcmment. and most likely.
