Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 15, 1905, Lethbridge, Alberta ADVERTISING: Per Month Per Inch High Grade Immigration. Oi recent years there has been a vast immigration of settlers from United' the fair and fertile domains Alberta and the Canadian west generally, This class of immigration is of the top-notch order, and every true, Canadian should be proud to see it and en- courage it. Thus shall our vast tracts of God's which we have enough and to spue for peopled by an in- telligent. race of our own kind, who will readily be de- veloped into permanent, patriotic, solid citizens, who will adhere to one which protects their homes and their whose posterity will be educated in our schools, become a part of our com- monwealth and eventually assume their logical positions as important faelovs iu our commercial and political fact become by natural evolution a part and parcel and inseparable from our proud standard of Canadian ism. This is all coming (as it has already come, but on a smaller scale, in years gone by) and it will be good. It has been prated and foreboded by the pessimistic alarmist that these inroads by Yankee settlers niay result in dire effects upon our national constitutionalism and that jmoerahce oi republican to bear as to bring about annexation. Nay, nay, Pauline; the greater will ab- sorb the lesser, 'and the chances are 'is happily married interest. He has id expenses, of which iis free, but- he has a happiness and comfort bachelor has not, and which makes the cares and expenses seem nothing in comparison. The married man becomes a settled figure in the community. His in- creased needs require on his part increased exertions and bring out iiebest that is in him. well as the young expects every nian to marry, and the man svho delays thid duty until middle age may find his bachelor habits so inveterate that he'cannot accom- modate himself to the new state of affairs." country that is blessed with one of the finest climates on earth today. The motto of the Board of trade should Lof.hbridge Grow." Lcihbridge be'" Watch Lethbridge has today the finest buildings of any town of its size in the west. And buildings like these carry with them ihestoryof thccon- fidence of the 'people, and make a wonderful impression upon the stranger. When the people who live in a town show their con- h'dence in a. substantial manner, the outside investor becomes inter- ested at once. H. E. ALeityu'h lias the right idea' when he suggests a curfew bell.: Too many bojs and girls ;iro allow-! ed to roam streets at night when they should be at. home. And in cases where the parent will not discipline the child it is the duty of the 'Municipality to take matters in hand so far as it is able. The i future of a boy or a girl often de- >eiids upon' their being kept at ome nights. Give us curfew, "hat will settle the business. The T'ff ft AM ft 1 NOT! fflAdON-lUoGH n. Editorial The campaign put ujj by the Honorable Or. DeVeber and Mr. C. Ires iu the Lethbridge district might well be taken as a pattern by candidates all over Canada. It was clean, energetic and absolutely devoid of the dirty personalities that has given cam- paigns in Canada and the United States such deplorable coloring. Both of the Letlibridge candidates are gentlemen. Both are honest mon. Both are respectable citizens, both were friends prior to the election and aFe friends after the election. The HonorableMr. Gushing owes a heavy debt of gratitude to the Calgary Herald. The policy oi abuse it pursued throughout the campaign made many friends for Air. The elections in the States this year were a great triumph for honesty and a iirni protest against graft. The Herald has been very kindly received by. the people and the newspapers of the district, a fact that is greatly appreciated by publishers. the The Xelson Tribune comments upon-the appearance of the Heralc in its usual manner. It announces the birth of this paper and takes left handed slap at one of the pub Ushers to give vent to an old spite The editor of the Tribune is always personal in the columns of the paper that he is presiding over by an accident, and for that reason cannot be successful. Watch Lethbridge grow. The mounted police are recog- nized as the greatest police organ- ization in the world today, every- thing taken into consideration. It gives protection to a vast domain' and under conditions that to the people in large cities would seem virtually' impossible.

One of these is the pros- perity of the community in which we live. Lethbridge is today one of the foremost towns of Alberta, .t is looked upon .by all as the coming town of Southern Alberta.

The town or Leth- bridge should be filled with lives roes today. If every resident of town had followed the example set by a great many Lethbrllge would be the 'prettiest town in Alberta today. The writer remem- bers that in Kansas where he first visited eighteen years ago, the people have changed the appear- ance of that country and uveu beneficial chango in the climate by the liberal planting of trees. Years ago' Avlien J.. Stirlin Morton went to the state of Ne- braska it was a barren prairie over which the winds swept with terrific fury, 3Ir. Morton became a crank on the tree question. He talked it early and late and by his iulluence .Nebraska became ;i tree-' pluucing state, iiiid have one day a year that is' called arbor day, and is celebrated as a general holiday. Last week ;i monument to his memory was unveiled in Nebraska and one of the chief speakers was G-rover Cleveland, the osily living ex-president of the United States. Of till that was said in praise of the memory of the'man, his grand work in encouraging the planting of .trees received the most attention. The people of Alberta should all become tree cranks. Too many trees cannot be planted. And Lethbvidge should have one holi- day a year, upon which occasion every person who owned a foot of property in the town should plant one or. more trees.

As a member of the provincial cabinet the Honorable Dr. DeYeber will'be in a position to do much for his district, and what is more the people know that he will do it. Young Man, Buckle Up. It is about time the news editor of the Spokane Spokesman-Review got next to the idea that Alberta was a bonafide province and that fp say .'.'Alberta.'N. W. T." is evidence of rank In view of the fact bridge has hosts of that Leth- marriaireable If the district about Lethbritlge continues to improve during the next five years as. it has. during the past five. Letlibridge will make rapid advancement indeed. 'young men pleading -along in a state of heedless celibacy, and as many or more young woman who are only waiting for the vital query, the following statements by a well-known writer, who has the question, furnish food for thought: "The! question whether or not a young man should marry c.-innot be answered in the affirmative for all young men, but it may lie alleged audit is here alleged that marriage is good for a young man if he is the sort of young man that is marry. Marriage ambition No- tariff should be high enough to permit the manufacturer of any commodity to sell that commodity thousands of miles away in a foreign country cheaper than he will sell it at home to the citizen of the country in which it is manu- factured. as come here engagetl in actual are the people .who are everlastingly singing the praises of the province and naturally their opinion goes a long way with the stranger who is looking over the land. To the man who has spent many winters in the colder sections of the country Sunny Alberta seems like a veritable land of sunshine.

There are people with money to invest who prefer to pay more for land and able to immedi- ate results rather than wait five %or ten years. These are the people for Lethbridge to cultivate, and it can be done with profit to the com- munity. There are many .peopl who come to Lethbridge and leave I without hearing a word for the town or country. This is unfor- tunate. The merchant who would fail to show his. goods would soon be out of business. Lethbridge has the goods, but they need pushing. LETHBRIDGE BREWING A Few Remarks. If there has been any crooked- ness in the recent election by Liberal or Herald trusts that the hcavv la w may come down on arm of the the heads of the guilty ones.

No young It seems strange that the C.P.R. will let a passenger ride as far as Macleod in the sleeper coming east, and then at that hour of the night have a negro porter fire the victim of a petty rule out of the car into the other coach that may be filled from one end to the other.
