Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 5, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta TSe Lethbridge Daily Herald VOLUME V. PRICE-FIVE CENTS Lctlibridgc, Albcita. TiicHday, November 5,1912 TWELVE PAGES Number 2 FOUL MURDER IN WAKE OF A WEDDING FEASl NOLAN'S CROSSING SELECTED AS SITE OF THE NEW BRIDGE o- Diamond City Project Rejected' by Provincial Government-Hon. Archie McLean says Nolan Site Will Serve the Farmers the Best. The new bridge over the Belly River l� to be located at Nolan'* Ferry. Lethbrldge's agitation for the bridge at Diamond City ha* failed. This much the Herald learns from a semi-official source, though no announcement has been made by the Minister of Public Works. An effort to reach Hon. Mr. Mitchell at Edmonton failed, as it was learned that he was not in the capital. However, the Herald believes that there is no question that Nolan's is the site selected. There will be much disappointment In Lethbridge over the location, and there will also be much said about the treatment meted out to this city. For some years an agitation has proceed-'cd in favor of a bridge to cross the river at Diamond City. Lethbridge had the idea In view that with a bridge there the street railway could be extended to link up this city with the coal mining centres over the river. Hon. A. J. McLean was not in 4> favor of the idea, arguing that the ^ bridge should be located where it people, and not to accommodate the > street railway. He maintained the and to enable the farmers to get to market by the best possible route. Lethbridge pointed out that the gov- > ernment had assisted in building a railway bridge between Edmonton and # 8ti different sort of'case. Hon. Mr, Mor Lean, it is understood found much opposition in Diamond City to the location of the bridge at that point. The people there felt It would Injure the business of the town. On the other hand, the Provincial Secretary found his constituents In the Turin', Iron Springs and Sundial districts Just as favorable to Nolan's crossing a* to Diamond City. The objection made by those in favor of Dia hiond City was that the bridge at Nolan's would not be as necessary after the KIpp-Suffield line of the C. P. R. was built, for the reason that farmers in the communities to be served by this bridge would ship their grain from points on this branch, and would come into Lethbridge by train to do their shopping. Brings Farmers In One fact must be kept in rnind: and that la a bridge at Nolan's Ferry will make all the country north of the riv er, as far east as Sundial, tributary to Lethbridge. It will make this city much more accessible to the farmers In the well-settled communities north and east of the city. The money to erect th� bridge was voted at the last sesBlon of tlio Legislature, though no site was named, that being left wltU Hon. Mr. McLean to decide. Ffom' the start ho has heen opposed to tho Diamond City site, be^ liovlng that It would not servo the people nearly ag well as Nolan's. He could not be convinced either that it was a goad thing to help Lethbridge to got Its street railway across the river. Air. McLean was looking at matters from the standpoint oi: hla constituency. Ho was also unalterably opposed to a policy of building bridges to accommodate street railways. 1 He held that in such cases the parties interested should hulld the bridge, and not tlie government. It Is understood that prisoners from tho provincial jail will ho placed at work at once hauling gravel to No-Inn's In preparation for the erection of cement piers. It is said that tho Bteel has already been ordered. Those who are coniiJatent to judge, declare that Nolan's furulslios Ideal conditions tor a bridge. Tho approaches on cither Bide are good. What Citixent Think A well known citizen,,when informed of the site selected, declared that, apart from tb� plan of getting the street railway linked up with com munltlcs across the river, the Nolan's site was to bo preferred to Diamond City, if the idea was to bring the farmers north and east of the riVer into closer touch with Lotbhrldge. He said tho new bridge would bring a lot of now trade to Lethbridge, tho trade of prosperous and successful farmers. Another opinion offered by another citizen was that the bridge at Nolan's would be of little value after tho Ktpp-Suftield lino was constructed. MURDER AT KAMLOOPS Vancouver, B.
