Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 5, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta tiETHBWlDQt. ALBIRYA. THURSOAVi NOVEMBER B, li*. '1 IS IT NOT TRUE? That there are many kinds of advertising: but nothing is better to permanently establish a claim upon the patronage of all than the carrying of merchandise of conceded superiority.

Bilkiss, a graduate oi Baldwin seminary, until a slioTl time ogo a vaudeville performer and now head of Christ Mission in tlie rear of the Coeur d'Alene theatre, accompliahed in a brief exhortation on the street corners what could not be done by the entire police force of the city. She rounded up John P. Gamble, alias J.P.Munsfiold, a notorious highway man, converted hiui to Christianity and per.suadpd him to confess Ilia crimes to the authorities. He walked alone to the police .stution, where he told of more than 40 robberies. When t.-iken bc-fore Justice 8. A. Mann, he pleaded guilty to the atlfmpted robbery and shooting of H. E. Ayres, and was held to tho superior court in bonds of $2,000. Hi' said: "I understand what it will moan to me to confes.s, but I am willing to take any punisliment that may be given mo for my crime. At tlie name time, I want to any a word to the young men: Leave all liquor alone. It is the forerunner of evil. The drink may be the beginning of ti career of the blackest crimes. I committed all my crimes when drunk and always worked single-handed, the first being nt Helena, Mont., three years ago and I guess I've robbed men of thousands of dollars in my time. I am not boastful of this; I am sorry now, and I am willing to atone for my wrong-doings." Gamble gave several $10 gold pieces to stragglers in the river "Si.strict after talking v/ith Miss Bilkiea, also scattering $230 of his ill-gotten gains into the street while on the. way to the police station.

Tile general result lia^i been a most .uriquilUlied ondorsation of a strong and able Government under which Canada hna progressed as never be-fottl 8,000 people. Here the "Chinook" winds coming up from the west maintain a warm and agreeable cliniate through-.'>ut the winter. The longest railroad bridge for it.s height in tlie world is in process of construction over the river Houtli of the city, tlie estimated coat being over $1,500,000. This city ha.s an active and enterprising commercial club, and many former citizens of the States are to be found here. Coal is at)undant in this vicinity. Tlie irrigation project under way will add niateriitlly to the value of the lands in this section, although wheat is now giown quite exteiwive-ly. Land value.s range from $8 to $20 an acre rioiv. The National Editorial association were lucky enough to arrive in Lethbridge the night before homesteads were to be alloted. A line of nearly two hundred hopeful srttlers to b.- had formed shortly after dark in order to gel an early turn when ilie land office opened at nine o'clock tlie following morning. Homesteads are being constantly given out in nearly nil sections of Alberta and Saskatchewan, and many still remain in Miiiiitob^i. Over 100,-000 of these free iiomestead.s still remain in llie surveyed portions of theHc provinci's besittes great unsur-veyed areas to the nortlnvwit.
