Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 24, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta 'B way Herdi ,ftlitodl>r^� D*U7 B�nld Priutlag : 1^^^^ mty Uwlal _�T�DU^^t _________ _____ . jwlul �T�niBC * :~tttL..ttlta,.tfi9nd St..

It looks rather large to some that the city should pay thirty thousand dollars for a hospital and then contribute a thousand dollars a yeor for its maintenance. This in itself is no sound argument, for hospital is something wc must have and it ia far easier to pay half the pf-icc than to pay the whole of it. But thfre is something else that the people of this city should remember and that ia that the present hospital has cost them but very little although they have^ had all the benefits of it. The building cost thejm nothing being the gift of the Gall family. For many years the city made no contribution . to its maintenance but later gave four hundred dollars a year, increased a year or so ago to' six hundfced which is t\u- amount at present contributed. Outside of the. f^Hw paid by the patients, the A. R. & I. Go. pay the largest part of the cost of maintenance, lost yaar their payment being $3,811.90. the grant by the Alberta government being $3,112.25, and that of the city $600. Thus it will be s^en that the city has been getting off very light during the past years and if now it .should be that it .should pay its share in the up-keop of the institution, .it would be no more than what is right and ust. But such is not the case. Mr. Gait presents the city with the site and U�e cost of the building over and above thirty thousand dollars, his minimum gift to be thirty thousand, equal to what the city gives. How much more than thirty thousand he will give is not known but all that the city is asked to contribute is tlvat amount. The thousand a year that the city gives for maintonnnce i.s but n very small amount. Seldom is it the lot of a city to have the opportunity to secure a real good hospital ot so small a cost and the people would show a very short sighted policy if they rejt-ctod the generous offer of Mr. Gait. Compared with the boneljt to be derived and with the nmount that is beinp given the city by Mr. Gait, the cost to tlie city is a mere baguti-lle. attd r look After it anc( nothing else. 'At thiavPMiod of the year a man's iet\tire time cnn be occupied in weighing tho loads of farmer's grain and produce. We understand that when the now scales are ready for uso a wdghmastor will always bo on hnnd. Why not have a weighmastcr appointed at once so that thorfe will be no further complaints about delays at the old scales P The farmers deserve fair treatment in this matter. It is a penny wise and pound foolish policy to delay the appointment of a weighmaster. If tho farmers go about the country complaining of the weighing system in this city we will lose, trade. - We ought to do all that we possibly can to make the farming community perfectly satisfied with this city os a market place. OUR POINT or VIEW Tabcr coal sells for 18 a ton in Saskatoon. Quito a bit ot profit for the persons hunctllng this fuel between Taber �nd Saskatoon isn't there? C. W. Itowloy, the Calgary banker, in a letter to a (Calgary poijcr, points out that cheap living is an important essential in a city's growth. Cheap living ought to commence with cheai> rents hut in this western, country rents .seem to be placed at tho highest possible figure. House owners seem to want to get the vcrj-highest interest on their iuvostuienl. LtrHBRIDOE, ALBBNTA, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER S4, 1908. When You Cant Sleep.
