Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 1, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, SATURDAY, MAY I, IW. BURDETT THE COMING TOWN FAIR WARNING You must act immediately to be certain of securing any of these lots at the present prices. In a very few days from now the price will advance. Call on HATCH COONS and WEBER REALTY CO., Agents for the Burdett Towrisite. Three thousand homesteads and pre-emptions within 40 rniles of Burdett Good hotel and livery accommodation and land locators at Burdett. Good opening for all kinds of business ABOUT.. DAD'S Jfae Lord Mayor's Sou The dopester who hands out the stuff in the editorial column of this rag swiped one of the ideas I had been treasuring up. when he cut loose on the question of giving Char- lie Kroning, the new fire chief, the whole say in. the management of the brigade, and everything pertaining to it. When a public official is not in a position to handle hins depart- ment off his own. bat, he is up again- st a stiff proposition. When Dad's council appointed Chief Gillespie they took a tumble to themselves, handed him the bylaws -and the stat- utes and told him to go to it. that, he ruled the city as far as law and order were concerned. It is the only to get an official to cut any mus tard. li Kroning is given" the full swing like Gillespie he'll go at the thing in earnest, knowing thai the whole thing is up to him and that he will have no ona to blame-but him self if there is not a tip-top brigade and all the rest .of it. The fire bri- gade is no place for the aldermen to butt in and the chief should be given power to put them in the fire-box if they try it. There is a little matter that is a source of a great deal of annoyance and great many cuss-words and that is the way some block-owners are allowed to have the water from the roofs of their buildings drain out onto the sidewalks. It hasn't tum- bled into my nut yet why this' is THE CANADIAN BANK OF COMMERCE HEAD OFFICE. TORONTO B. 1. WALKER, Presidtnt iilXAHDEE LAIRD, General Kuuger ESTABLISHED Paid-up Capital, Reserve Fund, TRAVELLERS1 CHEQUES The new Travellers' Cheques recently issued by this Bank are a most convenient wny in wfaicfa to carry money when travelling.

The cheques and all information regarding them may be obtained at every office if the Bank. 131 A Lethbridge Branch C. G. Oourse, Manager at all necessary. All the buildingsproposes to put in is cheaper than on Kedpath St. surely have sewers, and why they do not drain their roofs into the sewers is a puzzle to the pedestrians who have to -wade through the water or break their backs on the ice in front of these stores. .It should not be allowed and Dad's Council should pass the dis- allowance act pretty mighty quick. The city does not seem to have got very much excited yet .over the spend ing of a of hundred thousand dollars a week from Monday. I do not think that anyone has nerve to say that a new power plant is not ne i cessary. Some seem to- have the j idea that the city is paying too much for the proposed plant. All sorts of wild dreams have been aired but the dreamers have been wakened up with the real facts that according to the horse power the plant the city that got by other cities. There is no darn sense getting a cheap outfit for they are dear at any price. This the best there is without any trimmings. The plant ..recom- mended is considered the best that can be secured and all the fancy fix- ings have been lopped off reducing the 'outlay to the lowest point con- sistent with the policy of having a plant that will be satisfactory. The city should not favor any scheme for buying' any second hand junk-shop outfit or any cheap stuff that will be fie for the junk-shop in a few years. and being disgusted at not getting, any place to sleep, turn up their nos- es at Sunny Southern Alberta, and hike back to Dakota to become real live knockers. Some way will have to be found to get "more than eight people a night at the King David or the scheme will be a financial loss and the city will keep getting a black- er eye. It is hardly a square deal for a hotel porter to take people over to a hotel and have the clerk tell them there is "no room at the inn" for them. The porter would do it about once and then duck his liut as the -next train full of people for ethbridg-e hove in sight. If ttis hotels are full and the porters do not go to the station, the strangers not hearing anyone calling out thd just naturally think that the hotels are full and that there is no use .iryin gto hunt up a place to sleep that is more comfortable than the waiting room. By the time they hang around an hour or two they get good and sick of it, give up the Sunny Southern idea and hike back SITE NOT SUITABLE Alberta Clay Produce Company Are Not Satisfied with Site Ar- ranged for Medicine Hat, April site arranged for some months ago will not suit the Alberta Clay Products Co. This was the .decision of Mr. Lonjr, who with Mr. Warren Overpack was here on Tuesday and Wednes- day. Mr. Long represents the par- ty who are putting money into the en terprise. and is also desirous of look- ing over the field for himself. He says the company will require forty acres of level ground. Suitable sites on top of the hill and elsewhere-were looked over yesterday in company with Mayor Milne and Alderman. How son and Huckvale and others. A hill site would mean an additional mile or so of trackage to reach the works. Mr. Long has gone west with Mr. Overpack to look over the markets for clay products and s-wt: to where they blew in from. And pipe They will on Saturday to all the time there are beds galore jinite. arrangements remain here make aei- abo what is Alderman King's "King David" Hotel scheme don't seem to work out exactly right somehow or other. The hotels are packed full every night and are told that often there are people who come in from the trains BOW ISLHND ALBERTA Choice Business and Residential Lots This tqwnsite is situated sixty-four miles east of the City of Lethbridge, on the Crow's Nest Pass Division of the C.P.R., and has the celebrated Old Glory gas well adjoin- ing the townsite.

It looks as if the porter would have to find -out wheth- er the otter hotels are full and :i eir porters are not going to the station, he and use his musical voice to sing out "King David Ho-' teL" There- is one tthing sure there is no use having the cots empty when there are enough bedless people every night to fill them two or three over.
