Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 22, 1905, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRiDGB HERALD SIIEFSON ft BENNETT Publishers r.l. BIMP80N A.S.BENNETT SUBSCRIPTION: In Advanoa 91.60 a year Otbarwiae a.OO a year ADVERTISINQ: Par Month - 91.00 Per Inch Work for Alberta. The^election is over, but there is a big oontest oouiiug, and one that it to wit for years, and that is the great titrnggle in the building up of theprovince of Alberta. The dbontfjf should be unanimous on this proposition, but yet there will be pesliiuists found, there will be knockers in the land, there will be doubting Thomases, and these men be able to do considerable injiuyiiu their devious was. There are more and better opportimities in Alberta today than can be found in any other province in Canada; that does not say a word against any other province, but simply emphasizes the glorious chances presented in this province. There will be millions spent in railway building during the next ten years there will be hundreds of thousands spent in government improvements there will be hundreds of thousands spent by the army of settlers who are coming here to make their homes, and to turn the barren prairie soil into vast gardens that will produce foodstuffs for the millions. There is great work ahead for the people of Alberta but it will be a glorious work, for it will be a labor of love that will reap the harvest of success and satisfaction. The growth of the province, the prosperity of the people, the happiness of the homes is more to one and all than petty political prejudice and the advancement of any one individual. It is the time for independence o: thought, for untrammelled action for unselfish devotion. Let us unite for one object, one hope one desire, the advancement of Al berta. No better slogan is needed in the struggle to come, no stronger incentive is required, no richer reward asked for than the with the tremendous immigration poiiring in from all sources, it behooves usto look to our own interests and save the cost of transportation." pf AlMa. thia i^/fdil^^^^^ dioe^li|^ci(Mil;fownti ii0V ^ns for the propoga-tiun of indiv.tria! enterprises; to ciirefiJly sti.iy the natural resources of the community, and to see that the proper steps are taken to develop them; to suggest loail improvements, and to work in bar-niony with tho cotuicil in carrying measures and matters to a successful issue whicl>. in any wise effect the well-beine of the town.

Aad thea sat down to rest, If to 'I climb DO farther npwaid, come^, what mar V\ v. ^ ' ^ good things acxjom-plished, just as the inactive one or the absence of one is responsible for much that might have been accomplished. Now, for a moment, let us give this matter a local application, and look at it from the standpoint of common sense and the greatest good to the community. Leth-bridgehasa board of trade consisting of some seventy members, and yet at the last mectting it could hardly secure a quorum. This is not as it should be. The board has, we understand, accomplished many things iu the past for which the city owes it a debt of gratitude. The town is at present in a most prosperous condition, and is occupying a high position in the commercial life of the west. Nature has given her many things which are bound to bring her to the front and keep her there. The boundless resources of the country surrounding Lethbridge are forcing the town's growth and importance. And for these very reasons there should be all the more work for the board of trade to do. ' It is as imperative for it to get up and hustle at the present time as it ever was and more so. With increased growth comes increased necessities. We do not for a moment mean to accuse the ni�/nbers of our board of trade with bijiiig disloyal to the town. Far from it. But we do believe that many of them have become too passive and that through the stress of their business cares do not stop to realiise that just at this time when business is good and prospects are bright is just the time for them to strike out and use the effective power they possess to procure industries and institutions the necessity of which is more and more becoming felt by reason of the tremendous growth both in population and industry for miles and miles in every direction around us. This is the proper channel through which many advantages to this town might be obtained and not only established industries advanced, but new and larger ones induced to locate here. Lethbridge should keep pace with the growth that is being forced upon her. She should not become like the t&tm boy with his "high-waters," by allowing her in. dustrial clothes to shorten with her aatunil growth. Stand by the homo merchant. Hr pays taxes, he ussints in every public enterprise that benefits the toAvn. and it is his effort.'J that are making the wage of tlie country what it is toiiay. Suppose every one here sent dcvu east for their supplies, how long would it bc before this town would be the same as eastcmjtowns? Wages would go down and you would be no better off than when you came here. You left the oast to better yoiir condition in the west, and if yon persist in sending back east for your supplies yon will in time kill the goose that laid the golden egg. You arc getting better wages here than you did in the east. Be consistent then, and stand by the home business man. He has stood by you A subscription to the Herald would make a very nice Christmas present to sOme friend in the ejist, and one that would be appreciated, as it would be a weekly reminder of your kintbiess. Politic graft is getting unpopular in the States. Hetty Green is the richest woman in the world, and the most miserable. J. D. Kockerfelh^' is the richest man and he cannot eat a square meal without suffering the tortures of the condemned. That has settled it with us, and we are content to remain in the newspaper business and work for humanity and thus avoid the curse of riches. Tlie day will come when Lethbridge will have a branch of the Grand Tnuik railway. A knocker is hke a skmik, always strikes backward. he What Mr. Gibbs has to say regarding Neepawa, can be applied in many respects to Lethbridge. And in addition to the advantages enjoyed by Neepawa, Lethbridge has great coal viens at her very door. The pay roll is what builds up cities. It is not the big residences or the . lai|g�.-ijjto|fe| HKiiy may^lf^funTon^^^^jB^: Lethbridge must do all in her lx)werto induce manufacttirers to locate liePB. Crerj'iustihxtiuu that adds ten or twenty men to the payroll of the town is another spoke in the wheel of progress. Mr. Gibbs has sized up the proposition correctly, and his remaaks are worthy of conideration. If you have got a man guilty of violating the election laws of the province, put him where he belongs, in jail, and look for his political leanings afterward. Spare no man who has attempted to bring disgrace on the new iMovince by crookedness on electio^ay. The vote belongs to' the people and ng man or combination of men have a right to deprive the people of legitimate results, and the party that attempts to protect a man b&. cause he is a member of that party is inviting defeat and disgrace. Let us preserve the purity of our ballot. That is the duty of both parties, and when it comes to election corruption it is time to throw away party prejudice and; miite for honesty.
