Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 15, 1905, Lethbridge, Alberta 3H.T .1 year ^"a year ADVERTISING. Per Month - $1.00 Per Inch High Grade Immigration. Of recent years there has been a vastinimigration of settlers from the United States to the fair and fertile domains of Alberto and the Canadian west generally. This class of immigration is of the top-notch order, and every true Canadian should be proud to sec it and encourage- it. Thus shall our vast tracts of God's bountifulness-of which we have enough and to spare for all-be peopled by an intelligent, progressive race of our own kind, who will readily bo de-veloped into permanent, patriotic. so;id citizens, who will adhere to one flag-that which protects their homes and their rights-and whose posterity will be educated in our schools, become n part of our commonwealth and eventually assume their logical positions as important factors in our commercial and political life-in fact become by natural evolution a part and parcel of and inseparable from our proud standard of Canadianism. 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 may result in dire effects upon our national constitutionalism and that prance of republican .mght to bear as to Juilly briny about | annexation. Nay nay, Pauline; the greater will ub-sorb the lesser, and the chances ah that the average immigrant comiu" to Canada is not only annexing himself to a better lino of prosperity than he has known, but lie is also getting at teust a shade the*| "of It from a governmental it,- Are not our laws _ , GutolfB enough, our nation-intelligence high enough, our jreat cnongh,.oojr climate jr bCOT o\ir futun fan attitude of superiority^fSjSPi any other country on the face of this green footstool? Yea, verily. Intelligent settlers from the United States, Great Britain or any other civilized and progressive nation come here imbued with thespirit of expansion and bound to establish a home for themselves and a future for their children. What time or thought have such as these for dipping deeply into the harrowing details of republicanism, imperialism or the score of other "isms" which the [display-Not lor ispority: ney want, and will demand, good government, and their chances of getting it in Canada are as bright and favorable* as in any of the lands they have left, God knows.

He has � id expenses of which is free, but he has a happiness and comfort w.,�,-.i Uie bachelor has not, and which makes the cares and expenses seem nothing in comparison. The married man becomes a settl. d figure in the community. His in-creused needs require on his part increased exertions and bring out the best that is in him. Nature,as well as the young women, expect* everv man to marry, and the man who delays this duty until middle age may iind Ins bachelor habits so inveterate that he cannot accommodate himself to the new state of affairs." country that is blessed with one of the finest climates on earth today.

And buildings like.these carry with them the story of the confidence of the people, and make a wonderful impression upon the stranger. When the people who live in a town show their confidence in a substantial manner, tho outside investor liecomes interested at once. H. E, Meibjioh has tho right idea ' WUtBMEKBBUSmEBSS when he suggests a curfew bell. Too many boJs and girls are allowed to roam the 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 lake matters in hand so far as it is able. The ,. future of a boy or a girl often depends upon their l>oing kept at home nights. Give us the curfew. That will settle the business. �>)* MaSON-RiSGH iJO The elections in the States this year were a great triumph for honesty and a firm protest against graft. The Herald has b( en very kindly received by the people and the newspapers of the district, a fact that is greatly appreciated by the publishers. Editorial Notes. The campaign put up by the Honorable Dr. DeVobor and Mr. \V. C. Ives in the Lethbridge district might well be taken as a pattern by candidates all over Canada, tt was clenn, energetic and absolutely devoid of the dirty personalities ihut has given campaigns in Cai.ada and the United States suc.i deplorable coloring. The Nelson Tribune comments Both of the Letlibridge candidates upon the appearance of the Herald are gentlemen. Both are honest in its usual manner. It announces nun. Both are respectable citizens, the birth of this paper and takes a ;,d both were friends prior to the left handed slap at one of the pub ection and uTe friends after the Ushers to give vent to an old spite, lection.

The tiolicy of cannot be successful ibuse it pursued throughout the .ampaign made many friends for Mr. dishing. Watch Lethbridge grow. The mounted police are rect nizod as the greatest police organization in the �orld today, every thing taken into consideration. It gives protection to a vast domain and under conditions that to the people i n large cities would seem virtually impossible. The record of the organization for bravery, honesty, fidelity and fliciency is without a parallel in die history of the world. The campaign is over. The vet diet has been almost unanimous. Now is the time to get together and make Alberta the greatest province iu Canada. There are some things in this world that are of more importance to the people at large than the political success of any individual or the success of any political party. One of these is the prosperity of the community in which we live. Lethbridge is today one of the foremost towns of Alberta. It is looked upon by all as the coming town of Southern Alberta. The success of the town is the goal for the ambitious and now is the time to get together and work as n unit for the unbuilding of Lethbridge. What Southern Alberta wants is more trees. The town of Lethbridge should be tilled with trees trees today. If every resident of the town had followed the example set by a great many Lethbridge would be the prettiest town in Alberta today. The writer remembers that in Kansas where he lirst visited eighteen years ago. Unpeople have changed the upix- in the climate by the liberal planting of trees. Years ago when .1. Stirling Morton went to the state of Nebraska it was a barren prairie over which the winds swept with terrific fury. Mr. Morton became a crank on the tree question. He talked it early and late and by his influence Nebraska became a tree planting state, and they have one day a year that iu called arl>or day. and is celebrated as a general holiday. Last week a monument to his memory was unveiled in Nebraska and one of the chief speakers was Grover Cleveland, the only living x-president of the United States. Of all that was said in praise of the memory of the man. his grand work in encouraging the planting of trees received the niostattention. The people of Allxrta should all l>econie tree cranks. Too many trees cannot be planted. And Lethbridge should have one holiday a year, upon which occasion every jierson who a foot of property iu the town should plant one or more trees.

In view of the fact that Lethbridge bus hosts of marriageable young men plodding along in a state of heedless celibacy, and as many or more young woman who are only waiting for the vital query, tho following statements by a well-known writer, who has vstudied tho question, furnish tWl for thought: "The question whether or not a young man should marry cannot be answered in tho affirmative for all young men, but it may be alleged and it is hero alleged that marriage is good for a young man if ho is the sort of young man that is fit to will be in a position to do much for his district, and what is more the people know that he will do it. It is ulxjut time the news editor of tin; Spokane Spokesman-Review got next to the it lea that Alberta was a bonalido province and that to say "Alberta, N. W. T." is evidence of rank ignorance. If the district about Letlibridge continues to improve during tho next five years us it has during the past five, Letlibridge will make rapid advancement indeed. Xo 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 manufactured. If there has been any crooked, ness in the recent election by Liberal or Conservative,the Herald trusts that the heavy arm of tho law may come down on the heads of the guilty ones. There should be no party distinction when there can bo shown dishonesty in the carrying on of an election. To the man who has spent many winters in the colder sections of the country Sunny Allierta seems like a veritable land of sunshine. If you have a moment to spare ask your friend to subscribe for the Lethbridge Herald. It will do him good, it will do tho Herald good and it will do tho country good. Talk Lethbridge. There are hundreds of people passing through Lethbridite each year looking for land and houies. That is where this town is overlooking a fine proposition.

There are people with money to invest who prefer to pay more for land and lie able to get immediate results rather than ten years. These are for Letlibridge to eultb can lie done with profit to the community. There are many people who come to Lethbridge and leave without hearing a word for the town or country. This is unfortunate. The merchant who would fail to show his goods would soon be out of business. Lethbridge has the goods, but they need pushing.
