Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 14, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta HERALD hotel occoiwapd out CO., LTD. ^PP. JORDAN, Snpl. ol Job DtpirtMtiit. SUBSCRIPTION: ^ - in Advance Otherwise 1.50 a year 2.00 a year ADVERTISING; Per Month 1.00 Per Inch The new Hoenee law will not per-mlt hotel* in rural districts. Thus l *i e * Alberta will not bo cursed by tho road houses, which Arc dent oLcvll wherever thoy exist. X The cause of toropornnco will bo atded by tho provision In tho now law that pay checks cannot bo cashed In hotel bars. Many a worklng-u*an goes to a hotel with a chock for his wages, gets it cashed after buying a drink, tokos a few moro drinks and before an hour, has passed has spent a great part of his wages. Now the excuse to go to tho hotel bar to cash a check ts removed and ho will have to go some -where else. Thus the temptation to visit the bar Is removed. The Medicine Hat News eelobrated its fourteenth birthday last week. It Is twenty-four years since tho paper was started under another name. The editor lays claim with Hon. Frank Oliver and Si Saunders to be among tho fathers of journalism in Alberta, but still shows signs of boing young and progres -sive. Eton. L. P. B?odcur, minister of marine and fisheries, spoke very truly when ho said that Canadian lake ports should be kept open lat er in tho season. Tho longer season will enable moro of our grain to go over Canadian routes, and Mr. Bro-deur will receive tho gratitude of the west if he keeps the lake-ports open for a longer season. Another provision of tho law will be strictly enforced is that prevent-Ing young men under tho ago of 21 j entering a bar. Temperance people will admit that If young men can bo kept from places where liquor is sold until they are 31, their likelihood of forming tho drink habit Is greatly lessened. Good for Cardstonf That district V of Intelligent farmers won a signal victory last weok when it captured all tho prises for Alberta Rod at tho Seed Grain Fair. It was a happy day for J. W. Woolford, MP.P. Ho felt prouder.than over of his district. There are few better farmers in Alberta than Thos. II. Woolford. Ho is modern in his methods and that is what counts now a days. It Is meeting the need* of tho south and our local representative is cer-tniuly^looking after tho Interests of his constituency faithfully and well. It Is rcportod that a company hns secured a portion of tho rlvor-boitom, directly west of the city for a hog ranch, Such a location for such an industry is hardly agrooablo to tho citizens, who will breatho aud smell tho gontlu western wsphyrs. Wo believe tho city could uso this property for park purposes to bottor advantage from tho citizens stand -point. A hog ranch is a good thing but not on tho west sido of the city if you ploaso. The Lotnbrldgo public should interest themselves in tho Important ! question of school accommodation. Tho present situation calls for a broad, far seeing policy on tho part or tho Hoard of Kducatlon. A heartily expressed opinion from the public supporting such a policy will greatly aid tho Hoard. A groat future ts before this city and wo must prepare for, it. The Minister of tho Interior will do a good thing for tho country by keeping under government control tho coal hinds, if n company pays several thousand dollars, rontal per annum, it will not delay its develop-mcntoperntions, but will proceed to work tho mines to get theirt money back. mont Is passing a law t*hnt it greatly in advance of the old law, and ono that places Alberta in the front rank nmoug the provinces in temperance legislation. Attorney-General Cross suturned up the policy of tho government in tho following torso sentences: 'In conclusion, t .may say that tho present legislation, added to what wos passed at tho last session of tho legislature, will show very plainly and clearly to tho people of this country that tho government arc strongly In .favor: (1). Of any legislation which affords a voll groundod hope of curtailing and restraining the drinking habit. "(2). Of closing ontlroly unlicensed drinking places. �(3). Reducing tho ealo and consumption of Intoxicating liquors. "(4). The prevention of the sale of liquors on Sundays and during prohibited hours. "(5).

Interpreting Napoleon's remark to tho standing of tho parties In Alborta, it la easily to be understood that Mr. I\obertson is leading tho wea'k sido becauso tho Lord is with tho Government, and most likely, Mr. Robertson, who is a former Mothqdist ^mlnlstor, would ho glad to bjT leading the party upon whose side the JLord %la. of hit wearing apparel, to have bath. The wind in the meantime blew tho door, of his room shut, and on returning he found himself locked out Having no key, he was Just going tp break the lock, when an* other Idea struck him, ho went Into ono of tho o(Ticca and telephoned the other occupant of* the so mo room to send his key, and waitod pationtly until it arrived. a ler Pnu. and 01*0 Millinery Opening It Is to be hoped that Edward Brown's defeat in Manitoba will not cause him to retire from public life. Ho Is too clean, honest and able a man to lose. It will not be long before tho people of Manitoba will bo glad to place him at tho hoad of the government. Even tho Conservatives of Mani -tola are sorry that Attorney Gen -oral Campbell was not defeated. I I It is evident that tho Conservatives made a dead set on Liberal Loader Rrown in Portage La Prairio and we believe, if the history of the election Is revealed before the courts all Cunada would be astonished by tho corruption. That was a sorry day to the north when Medicine Hat captured the first prires in the spring wheat classes. The South Is not finding It difficult to prove that it is the great grain raising section of Alberta. Watch us improve, too. An M. P. at Ottawa introduced a bill to j>rovent thq importation of cigarettes. Yes, the accursed things should go. Sir Wilfrid Laurler says it disgusts him every time he sees a tad puffing at a cigarette. So say we all. Roblln and Rogers make a com -blnation hard to beat. Thoy are munioulators of the front rank. I Lcthbridge is well thought of in the North. On the trains and in the hotels, people are frequently heard to remark that it is to bo tho big ity of the South. THE LIQUOR ORDINANCE. Tho amendments to the liquor or-dinnuce proposed by Attorney-Gen -tral Cross mean a big step toward the abolishing of the liquor tralllc. The amendments arc good and tho Attorney-General says that tho law will be rigidly enforced. Under the proposed law, the ac -conunodation must bo greatly in excess of that now demanded before a liconso will bo granted, thus assuring a letter class of hi�U�is. M >r*� wr. tho population requirements are In - creased so that now there must bo forty residences within an area of a section and a half beforo a liconso will bo granted. Plans for building must bo submitted to the commissioners- before the building is commenced and tho liconso can not bo granted until the building is completed.
