Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 27, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta T3n accrue on their investments. t Companies may be in order from, a lega .pomtxof view, but this does not exactly indicate the assurance of favorable returns That .is matter for. the public to de Jermine. Now.that thestampede for getting in on whaj lias of being thing has abated, there is time for a careful looking in into what is held forth. With cprnpaniei starling piactically every day there is much choice in selection. They are not all bound to turn up trumps, however legitimate their inten- tion. Whatever prospects are held in store-- for them is for investors to form their own opinions on before acting By sc doing will i be saved, and much money -will be gained by judicious investments. BECKER'S FATE WITH THE experience of many of the trials in the United States we have been ac- Itustqnied to look on the procedure of the law ptliere with its many delays, as being favorable jjlolhose who are influential citizens or endowed jiwith much wealth. In this aspect the trials-of jBecker, with the verdict of murder in the .first idegree recorded twice, furnish an amount of 'interest as to the final outcome. The counsel for the man brought in guilty I by his fellows has-followed the usual plan, and I (asked for delay on technical grounds. This has (been granted for a short time. 1 -The ex-lieutenant of the New York Police, j.who has been twice convicted for being instru- mental in the murder of the gambler Rosenthal, I has been making a hard fight for his life. '.Through the methods of procedure in tlie Arner- j jcari Courts he has so far considerably delayed Kile-1 meeting of the doom to which the evidence i in both trials pointed as one he deserved. It is said that a new lone has recently come over the courts of justice in the United States, and particularly in New York Slate. victed by the jurjvon practically the same.evid- ence, it is difficult to see how Becker can escape the electric chair. The court when it sits to hear the pleas of the counsel will substantiate, or other- Wise, the truth of the reform spoken of. inion has made in her own interests, and for her own welfare. While directly carrying out the re cent order prohibiting the arrival in Canada for some months to come of artisans or laborers, there is also underneath it, in this particular Cuse something of -the spirit which uriderlied Kip- ling's statement that east is wett is west, and the two can never meet. This latter view alone must post- pone Imperial Federation. For, in spite of rigk sentimentalists, there are many objections iuTt gard to "east" and meeting on common ground which cannot be easily overcome. But, apart from this, the mere fact that any portion of the Empire may have to fall in with the scheme of a central authority which the majority of its Imperial representatives may see fit to countenance, and which the particular por- tion affected considers detrimental to its Velfare will cause a tension. This tension may be so severe as to lead to ultimate severance. The Komagatu the' vessel chartered for bringing in the Hindus to Canada, and the incident which it liusfcaused, inust-give the believers in Imperial Federation a', serious pause. The idea is beautiful but in practice will be found Urbe unworkable. OTJK POINT Ot Mr. Masterman seems to 'be master loser. Who can blame the Hindu for wanting to come to Canada? Cardston has led the fray ju prises. Why not in oil? many -enter- Up Edmonton way the popular version of :he saying is "It's just brie chief after, "another." will rise within cording to the latest from Ottavya. Despite the ack of a naval debate, they managed to prolong the agony fairly successfully. _.. An Okotoks man went dippy following .the iffer of a fabulous price for his homestead near he big oil well. Hon. Chas. Stewart was wiser ban he knew when he decided .on that Ponoka addition. Praise is being showered on tlie Lethbridge adets. With this encouragement we look see them upholding their reputation in ompelilion some of the days as Calgary lioys are doing at present THE VICTORIA INCIDENT THE surrounds the vcs-' scl with her Hindu passengers, now anchor- ed in Victoria harbor, furnishes an example of the difficulty which is hedged.around the reali- zation of the ideal of Imperial Federation. Here, under the laws of one part of the Empire, rsub- jecls of the same Empire, living in nn- pther portion of it, "are debarred the; right of pntry. Under Imperial Federation, with the free- dom to move within the confines of the Empire allowed to every individual member, irrespective ofv race, creed or considered as an1 ideal part of the scheme, an incident like the'present must tug heavily at its maintenance. The law There doesn't seem to be very niuch doubt bout Ira Segur sinking a well in the boundary ountry. It is lessithan two years ago that Mr.. Segur, when in tetlihridge, said prospects for iland gas within a 75-miles radius And now he's going to prove it. Here's hoping! From Peace River Landing on the north, to the international boundary on the'south, and be- }'ondi the whole taik is bii. Each district thinks it has a chance. And with just one more strike such as that at the Dingman well, all those var- ious chances will be carefully investigated, 'for the capital will in to. do jt] ,If Alberta, has mineral wealth we are due to find it oul. In bringing in an expert to pass w the local field, Lethbridge Oils is doing the. right thing to gain (he confidence of investors. And if his re- port is grounds for sinking a wcjl here the company will receive loyal support. There is a determination behind the drilling operations now that Was always lacking before, and it is that determination that is likely to turn the of success our way. ,i l l f The Intense Oil Excitement In Western Canada Means Fortunes From Oil For A Good Many.
