Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 1, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta RID6E HERALD A BUCHANAN PubUsb�r� 9IJIP80S IT. A. OUCItANAX SCTBSCRIPTION: A�i^vaaew ! 60  year uarwlss W 00 � jrear ADVERTXSINO: F�i Uontta - 1.00 Per Incb ONE YEAR OLD. The BemM ia  yMr old today. FiHy two woelM ago. the ftrat t�-�ue caiao from the.presa, and ovvry UM of thoM wesks baa wHiMMed tl>e advaaco of thla paper �a the favor ol Mttt peopie 6( L�ihbiidco and Southora Alberta. The Herald began ita voyage ot, the Joumaliatic trait with a firm laitfa in X�thbridge aa a city of a great future. Wo ding to tfcat be-Aef. more etaunchly ttaea ever today,. IjaUibridge la ffro\riag and wUl continue to grow, It is and ever will be tlie�great market place, induatr'al hub, distributing point, and railway vcntn; of Southern AlberU. Nothing �n keep it back from being a great city. Loolnng Imck owr a j-car, the Iloratd fuels proud of Us rocord, t'ne .interacts ofXeth-bridge and Southern Alberta. That wfll be our first thought. Wo do not hrtiovo in knocking. Yet ifair criticism is 'not knocking" and fair friticiam will be offered on all of Southern Alberta, is vitally affected. We.bcUev� the Herald has won � place as a newsy newspaper, we in tend to retain that position and in the coming year wo will maku an increased effort to fill our columii9 with cvcrj' item of news, that is worth publishing. Wo will try i�.jt to miss a single item., Tlie Herald tvlll be published as u wteekly for the present. We have the ntouat confidence in Lethbridgo and Southern Alberta and beliew. in Vo^ fng pace with its growth, but v-e have not reached the stage, where �e feel, there is any warrant for the publication of a doCly edition of the Iferald. Frankly, wo. must admit, �-e are in the newspaper business to make a fow nickels,.and we will publish a good,, newsy weekly, until we feet, there is warrant for the issue of a daily, when that time comes wc will put forth every effort to furnish the people with a newsy dally. In the meantime'�-o call upon th>) people to WATCH LETHBRTDOE GROW. one ill" ihi' g1\*ato9t ini.xt.'d furni cch-Iqoeations asked. "IIoW. do you uc-lucss blacks and houses comiing int> tres of Souihorn Alberta and it will ! count for the progress your town is j sight every day. not be long until the C.P.R. wi4l be 'making?' 'To what cause do you.it do\m on Hs knees begging for bUsi-{ti'ibute the success ot Iterlio?' 'Ot'i tcds. That wUl be the time K'hsn'cr towns and cities have facilities ' soon, the farmers can get even. jauperior to those poaaaaaed by Iter- j -0_ lin and yet their prugKas ia slow, Lothbridge is not a boom town. We'll hardly know the old town THE fiAtniOSFITAL The fact that the Oalt Hospital is a general hospital In every sense of J the word docs not appear to toe fu'lj-understood by llw people of I�th -bridge, and in view of the house to house collection to be underUk^ next month by tho memJjcrsof thj Gait Hospital Women's Aid it may bew�lt to give a short history of the Institution. The hospital owes Ita- existence to the goocrosity of Sir Alexander Oati and was, until a couple of years, ago, entirely an .� B. * I. Institution. About that time on account of tack of suppoK from outside souraes the Company decided to close the HospiUl to all but its own employees; liowever, the matt?! was taken up by a committee of ieons and the hosfAtal liccamo frox that, date a general hospital. Tho Company still continues to dcdu.t 3Sc per month from its employees wages but the recent strike, which still continues, has mevtcrially reduced this source of revenue. Tho City of Le^bridge contributes tlOO.OQ per annum and about $1,000 is ia-coived from other sources, tho Government also contributing annually to th�> extent of fa.OOO. But with the running expenses reaching ihe figure of ov�r 930,000 H will be readily aeen how badly the institution is in need of outside support. Were It not for the rewnuo derived from private patients the hoapitat wouki have to close its doors. Vo body, however poor, being in nee I of help,' is ever turned avay.^and such cases are of very frequent occurrence. As a ineans to helping this very deserving work the Oalt Hospital Women's Aid ha\-o deternwned to make a house to liousc canvas during the month of November, as i� done in every city forigTcat big re\*nuo was m: lAifiA.^^^^ in }W4%' Pppvt\*^ te�e�;'ito�4j**SfWi�V^ 'i|feC.P;�K.owiiedstlie:ubliahing Co. and will have complete charge of tile mechanical department. Mr: Jordan ia a inan of wide experience in tho newspaper business and down in Ontario he is rated aa a Job printer of advanced ideas and excelljat taate in workmanship, for some years he waa foreman of the large job department of the St. Tlionus, Ont.. Journal. Latterly he has held reaponaible poaitiona witji the printing departments of the Melodist Book Room and Saturday Night, Toronto. The Job department of- the Herald has ticen in .gOod hands aince this paper began publication. Geo. I. Campliell. the foreman, has proved himself a mosb capable man and the work turned out from this office lias always given satiafaetion. As an od setter. Mr. Campbell holds a plaoa ia the front rank. Mr. Camt>-belt leaves In a few days to assume the management of a weeicly paper about to be started in Tabor We can recommend him to n with the Board of Trade mo^' lie readily:seen by the report of our secretary, which shows that our mem bcrship has again increased and that our total this yvar is about thr.^e hundred. Our meetings throughout the >'enr8, .ispuUlsbodinthe form of an illustrated pamphlet en titled "Busy Berlin." A little of the town's history is given, and its ad%-nnlagea to manufaaturers, . mvr-rhants and aa a ptaee in li\'e in uro; set forth, inaddlt;on to the annual report of the Praatdeat ef tlMBoard^ of Trade, ita financial stateamtt,; list of nembera, etc In his annual report the TrMiMsBt aaya:. %iir friiltieAtly do wa hear (be What Lcthbridge nonls is n post-office building that will enable the postal business of thi^ city and thi; targe district for wMch it is a mail distrihutiag centre, to be conducted with despatch. Postoffices have \)Wa built in places in Eastern C-anaJa where the revenue is hardly one-tenth of what it is here and therjjiiwwMB* mt^|*>1f*uSS!^'Vbe^B\.Bin, 'L'^ ,n similar ratio. Why sbou'.d Lethbridge. a growing western city, accept conditions tliat are not to be found in villages in the east. The postofHoe department boasts of a huge surplus. What the west wants, is a decent service; the surr plus can go to the mischief. -o- It ia Tjo credit to thff department to boast of a surplus while the Citizens of western Canada have to jiut up with a service that is simpy mnk. The Herald has quoted iiuftanc>�ort of Magr^th Itayniond and Cardston to secure a daily mail aoryioo. Tiwy should have It. It would; pay the .raitrotd to give it to them and railroads never do anything for tbe puMie un� less they see tbe currency- in aigbt. Raymond Is ulUng electric light'. Good idea, we hope to aoon see tho reffcction in the :aoutbem sky. Bo sure and see that tho town li�t�i'.s and controls ,the. plant. Tho Westminster Choir was the best musical treat Lethbridgo has hod in.years. The Epwortb Leaif�w of Ibesley Church is a wide awake orgonization and the peopto are u>. der obligation to it for bringing such cxceltent talent here. Lethbridge needs' a largo opera house. Let ua have a building that will attract to the city all the best companiea touring tbe a-est. Th-;i\! is a good investment in this lin.> for some of our capitalists. Don't forgot. City Council. .vo simply must hav� Iwttcr streets. G�t rid of those nasty weeds. Business men should be willing t--> servo in the City Council. Any vacancies in tlw council thrls year should be filled by good, capable, aggres.)ive ciClrens. Wo dbn^t want any drones. It is the duty of every citizen to take a live inte:rest in civic affair.!. If Lethbridge is to be a desiraote city to 11^*0 ir.Mif:?d^ce of our streets. ^.Iiaj^j^jar!' ^luobelieve it pays to put up pubKc buildings that will add AU tiixtion io the city. A department having a revenue of over tT.OOO a year at Lethbridge, ought to put up a buIMing to decently houae tbat businiesK and to employ a staff big enough to handle Tlie only rcdeenving feature in the situation here is that Mr. Hlg-n-botham is erecting mucli larger and improved quarters for the poetofllce. He bos decided to utilize tho entire ground floor, including the office be had intended renting to the 8ing>fr Sewing Machine Co. Thia accomodation may do for a j'ear or " t� but Lethbrtdfe la gr6wlag ao rapid ly that a larger building irill ogAio be required in at least two y�ara. In a recent public address, Hon. Mr. Ayleswoirtb is reported by the Toronto Globe as saying: -Mr, Ayleswortb took occasion to refer to the splendid surplus in tbe Post-office Department, and intimated that he believed his Ministerial colleague had under careful invostlgat -ion tho whole situation with tlio hope of giving, bock 'eca which ia uiijust and most unfair.'  Tho present labor ayatem ia both objectionable and.coatly. Until aona change ia made ti^e"j>rogresa will be very seriouaty imtwded. � r .' "k: i BOWSeR-ADAMS KUPTIALa.
