Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 1, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta 9tut>soM RIDGE HERALD APBOVt & BUCHANAN Publisher* W. A. BUCHANAN one of llio latest mlxid farm cch-^questions asked.

ONE YEAR OLD. and The Herald Is a year old today. Fifty two weeks ago. the first u-*ue came from tho. press, and ovcry ubo of those weeks has witnessed the advance of this paper In the favor of tho people of Lethbridge Southern Alberta. The Herald began its voyage ot, tho Journalistic trail with a Arm faith In Lethbridge as a city of a great future. We cling to that be-ftef, more staunchly than ever today;, lethbridge Is growing and will continue to grow. It Is and ever will be tho (great market place, industr'al hub. distributing point, and railway contro of Southern Alberta. Kothlng An keep it back from being a great city. Looking back over a year, the Herald fuels proud of its record, end tho record of the city too. Wo are proud, also, that we have been able to chronicle week In and week out, incidents of the advancement of Lethbridge. We are glad that we haw used our efforts to boost 'bo city along. Wo end tho year with -out any regrets; yes we have one and that Is. that wo did not locate in this Hve city, with It* immens.; opportunities and glorious climate years before. Fot the year to come. What Is our purpose? Wo will do our utmost to promote the interests of Lethbridge and Southern Alberta. That will bo our first thought. Wo do not believe- in knocking. Yet fajr crlt  Idem is 'not knocking" and f.ilr rritlcism will be offered on alt The fact that the Oixlt IloBpitnl is a general hospital In every sense of tho word does not npiwar to be tu'ly understood by tho peop'c of Leth  bridge, ami in view of the house to house collection to be undertaken noxt month by tho members of th: tiatt Hospital Women's Aid It may be well to give a short history ot tho Institution. The hospital owes Its existence to the generosity of dir Alexander Gait and was, until a couplo of years ago, entirely on a R. tt I. Institution. About that time on account of lack of support from outside sources the Company decide! to close the Hospital to all but its own employees; however, the matter was taken up by a committee of 11 Icons and the hosrAtal became from that, date a general hospital. The Company still continues to dedu.t 95c per month from Its employees wages but the recent strike, which atllt continues, has materially reduced this source of revenue. Tho City of Lethbridge contributes $100.00 per annum and about #1,000 is in with the Hoard of Trade may be readily;seen by the report of our secretary, which shows that our mem hership has again Increased and thut our total this year Is about thtve hundred. Our meetings throughout the year hnvo been well attended, questions of importance relating to the welfare of our town have btvjn discussed and much good work has been accomplished." Lethbridge is not a boom town but it's a booming town. Do yoa know the difference. All power to the effort of Mogr.Uh llaymond and Cardston to secure a daily mall service. They should haw tt.

Frankly, we must admit, we arc In tho newspaper business to make a few nickels, and wo will publish a good, newsy weakly, until wo feel, there is warrant for the Issuo of a dally, when that time comes we will put forth every effort to furnish the people with u newsy dally. In tho meantime we call upon ttv people to watch LRTimnroaE onow for various reasons the revenue from this source has fallen off and the led ies have determined to substitute an annual house to house collection I place of thc ball. Accordingly dur -\ws tho month of November this first canvass will he made and it is hoped that the lndlos will to kin-ity received. ,�. ,n similar ratio. Why shou:d Lethbridge, a growing western city, accept conditions that arc not ti be found in villages in the east. bo Ailed by good, capable, aggrosil.e j citizens. We don't want any drones, -o- . | It is tho duty of every citWn in take a liw interest in civic affair.t.

Ho has decided to utilize tho entire ground floor, including the office bo had intended renting to the Singer Bowing Machine Co. This accomodation may do for a year, or ' so but Lethbridge is growing so rapidly that � larger building will ag.iln he required in at least two years. EMTOMAL NOTES. We're just grow. a year old.

Calgary Albertan: If Southern SI-Iwrta is to advaoce to the position nature intended that it should occupy, it through it's wealth in agriculture and coal. , At the present time there is a Ktrike in one of the largest coal mines in Southern Alberta and renditions arc always threatcnicg in the other mines...Last week therewns a striko in tho sugar beet fuctory in Raymond and it, is rumored that conditions are so unpromising that the beet factory-.may close down next year. Ah wo know ,\r�ll in all other parts of Alberta there are strikes frequently and persistently. In Calgary, for instance, we have seen during the last six months, strikes of the leather 'workers, of stonemasons and. bricklayers end ol the different building trades in the city. If the employers and employees of Alberta cannot get on a better understanding it looks bad for the future of tho province. The Albertan has persistently favored the compulsory arbitration of labor difficulties, believing that the state should give,, some protection to the goncral public. All must admit that we in Calgary arc paying well both in money awl '.nconwnlenccs for the difference existing between the employers and employees which is unjust and moat unfair. The present labor system la both objectionable and costly. Until soma change is made the progress will ho very seriously lm|ieded. Cethbridqe iron ttlorks Co..
