Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 17, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta HERALD S'UPSbM A BUCHANAN Publisher* f H. fttMMON W. A. BUCHANAN | It Adv�ac  ti.SO * year I O ti�rwite  2.00 � year | AbVCftTtStNO: Per Month �1.00 Per Inch | NO REASON TO COMPLAIN In order to hoodwink the doctors, the charge in being mode that th� AMx>rta Government had neglected the south country. There is not Hie least foundation for such a state-moftt. Any person who has tallowed J the proceedings of the Legislature will know that the south country has toen liberally treated. The lioet. sugar bonus 4s tor a purely Southern Albert* -Industry. The new mining act, with provisions offering the towt of protection to the working men, is of more value to Southern Altwta than any other part of the province. The aM>rot>rlotlon for well boring 4s a god-send to the settlers in this country, more than any other section of the province. We know whereof we speak when we say that this country will get n very big share of the money to be expended for tklly, la tributary to this crty, and the farmers them should patronise the merchants of this city. Are they? We are told a good many of Uwm are not. Why? Docs use they are attracted to Olotvs-holra. owing to a flour mill being there. They go to that town With tholr grain to grist, and when they get there. they buy clothing and groceries from the Claresholm merchants. Those people prefer to trade in Lethbrirlge. and would come hero all the time if we had a flour mill. TV) you see the point? Oet hu�y and form a company, engage a g�od practical miller, build it flour mill of large rapacity, and the riiy will lie heneAUed. IMn't allow the matter to rest until we hnvp the mill. Keep at H hnsc of the forestry question, showing what a wnhdorhil. Influcn.e lives exert, npon t Ito climate. The dost ruction of tiWH inay, nml I may my Iwtve rendered vast tracts of fertile lands barren nml desolate. We h:t\c abundant proof of this in the barren wastes which we today nml, particularly in Central Asia, in regions which once supported 'teeming Millions. It is thetvforu nol too much to con-rhiile that our sonti-nrkl western plains, may, >by irrigation and forestry, be converted into a most fruitful ami 'delightful country. llut lot the waete of lotvsts go on, by destructive fir.1.* and other causes, and the result will bo disastrous, and the dest mot if�n of the forests which ltound out vast prairies, will extend and incivase the andity of our western climate, leaving laripp tracts of country 'barren and desolate. It Is therefore dt the utmost importance that our people should lie stlm�d up to the great imiH>rtafncc of this question. Fortunately for our great pnrlrio provinces, at least so far as the forestry proMem is concerned, � the public lands are controlled by the Federal Government. This will enable the federal authorities to carry out a policy or system Of protecting the furewts, which Will t>c applicable to this great central region as a whole. As the forests extciHl from one province into another, effective provincial action might be pre-vented by lack of tiction in another province, weiv the forests vested in the province. As im�t-tors stutNl. the federal Oovern-ment litis full m-o|>c fur imhniu-(icriil action, in taking iiMf water early in the .season, followtil Ity dry rl\er beds later on. 'I'iic same thing applies to the other watersheds of our prairie r.on, as for Instance the Assinoboinc r>lwr watershed. Allow the fore.wls of the itsling .Mountain country to l�e wiped out, mkI we woukl have annual inundations along the As-f�lnihohic river and Its trlbotnr-ries, followed by stagnant pools or dry river beds. at.

The water which now rushes away in torrents early la the season will lie retained. It will be spread out over the land, carrying a vast evaporation of this hitherto wasted moisture, Wins ameliorating tlie influence, of the hot drying winds �4vich sweep over tlie country, and which coming from the south are severely felt throughout our own western plains. The planting of trees, which will follow irrigation, will further chock the progress and severity of these drying winds. Trees take up and evaporate on immense amount of moisture. It is . estimated that a large tree will transpire through its leaves, Quit talking about Uthhrtdgo as o town. Don't you know we have been created a city.

It is easy to tlu-orite on matters of thht kind, but it is far easier to lie practical nml sie��p until w� are coin|n'lled to get up. We all know that, ami yet we are glad we saw the beauties of tho early morn one time at least. Lethbridge is on tho up-grade, you notice how real estate is selling. The C. P.
