Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 21, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta ^iTpTHBRIDGB HERALD V- PRIMTmiC CO., LTD. W. A. BUCHANAN, MM�|i�C Wrtcttr. , ^ , W. JMtDAN, SHpt ! Job OtMrUMit BaasCBIPTIOK: .OtiMrwiu l.CO  year 2.00 a year AOVERTISXNO: Par Uontb 1.00 Per Inch OUR PaiNT IF VIEW The deatruction of the o0ee end ^plont of the Edmonton Bulletin, ibrlaga to ttiiad that this Is the first .' 1. reading room, there is not a place for young men and strangers to spend the evening. A free Ubraiy would be an attraction for theievea-ings. and a very helpful place it would be, too. Our public spirited cltisens should take this matter up at once and provide the city with this important institution. It is said t|iat Ron. W. S. 'Fielding has the refusal of knight  hood. He can make hinwelf much  stronger with the democratic Canadian people if he turns down the of- 'fer-With a thud. Canada has enough "Sirs" and only a few of them are worth much to the country. The mail service between Edmonton �and Lethbridge is fierce. It usually 'takes the Edmonton papers about - five days to reach here and We know of one instance where a letter, mailed at Belleville on the same day one was mailed at Edmonton, reached here along with the Edmonton letter. It is time pustofflce department wakes, up to the needs of the country and gets busy and improves the service, before a hundred or more new towns come into existence. Thos. Qreenway opposed Frank Oliver's new land bill. It looks as though Tom was a little Jealous of Frank end was merely, "acting up" in order Co attract attention. Ksep pounding it into everybody to whom jrott write or talk, that Southern Alberta won all the principal priMi at the Alberta ,Seed Fair at �dmout�a. Eight Senators and M. F.'s have died since the Dominion Parliament opened. Ottawa must be an unhealthy place. Altiurta-tee a-surplus of suiishlno. fcrlilo land and coal land, as well �a money. There is a rush of settlers to the Peace River this spring and they an nearly all from the land of that laaa of Peaos-Theodora Roosevelt. The land speculator will have to pay a tax for education. This will be good news to the actual settlor, who has had to pay for..the support of his township school, while a man or company owning probably the en-tlni tosnoship adjoining escaped without ptttUag �p a cent. llEe 'Liberals won an Icelandic seat The Zcelaaidt'rs possess more sense than moat people In Manitoba. Lethbridge must settle' the Indus  trial site prdhlem without delay. We .are'told that it is an impossibility for IniduBtrlea to get sites on even reasonable -terras. It is said the A.R. * I. Co. refused to provide a Bite for a saw mill on the river bottom unless a lease for five years was signed. Naturally the gentleman, who intended erecting a '$40,000 mill wouldn't listen to such a proposition. He wasn't going to invest #40,000 with the chance of being turned off the ground in five years. Another case, we heard of, was that of a firm desiring a site near the railroad track for a wholesale warehouse but could get nothing better than a one-year's lease with thirty days' notice. It baa been anticipated for some time that the comfwny and council would, meet and. arrange matters, but up to the present it has been impossible to arrange for a conference As matters atand the town is liable to loaeaaveral industries that arc looking vbera for' a location. We would suggest that the council go to the A.R. 4c I. and make an offer for the plot of ground to the north of the tracks. If the city could get possession of this land it would then .bo able to provide sites tor industries. If the company refuses to consider such an oiler then the people of this cith will know where to place the responsibility for the loss of induatries. Lethbridge must deal wisely and t)ro|^-aindad wHh corporations, but It would make a huge mistake if it followed a "give in" policy in I negotiating with them. The present City Council ia mads of betUc stuIT. than that. The Rea|}er is the product of the lied Door plant. It is one of ithe newsiest and best edited papers in the province and Mr. Oalbraith deserves the strung �ui>port of the citizens of Itod Doer. Attorney General Campfjell was elected in Morris, Man., by the vote of the returning officer. Many Manitoba -Tories would have befen glad if the oITicer had voted the other way. Prohibitionist!) will be pleased to learn thut the new state of Okia -honta has adopted a stringent prohibition law, pruhibiting the manu -fncture or importation of liquor of any kind. Say, that tax on real estate men seems to bo popular if one is to judge by the nun*ber of new men couiingto the city to enter into the real estate business. Medicine Hat is going to follow in Lcthbridge's footsteps and impose a tax. Hurrnh for the railway comnvission They have decided that railways in Alberta and Saskatchewan cannot charge more then 3 conts a mile for passenger fare. That decision will tickle the fancy and leave more change-in the pockets of the people to the south of us. The Railway Commission is prov  ing to be of service to the people ail right. Oneof the best boosters in South -ern Alberta is E. A. Barkor.of Card-ston. He should be'ie'ngaged as publicity ' commissioner for the south country. Recent articles he has written for the press prove that he knows more'about the resources and history, of this part~ of the'province than any other man. A. c.

He had before ?his been associated- with the movemehta that were initiated tu raise funds for the Uurmdon and Hartley disasters. Mr. Messer commenced business as a printer abd stationer in Turner St.. Waterloo, BIyth, and here he published a weekly newspaper under the title of "The Btyth and Bedllngton Star," which had only a short cor-jeer, however. Otherwise Mr. Messer was fairly successful in business. When he was between 50 and 60 years he conceived the notion of emigrating to America, and he and his family settled in Texas, but they soon tired of the conditions there, and then came ba�4{ to Northumberland. They resided in Wallsend, and Mr. Messer accepted a collector's position on the staff of the "New -castle Leader," but this he had to relinquish on account of the infirmities of cid age. He had a sunny disposition, and with his long white beard he was a picturesque peraon-ality of whom no one could speak ill, while his friends were legion. Mr. Messer vas in his 80th year, his wife predeceasing him only last year. The interment takes place at Wiit-loy Cemetery on Wednesday.- Blyth Eng., Star.
