Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 29, 1905, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDii i MERALD SIMPSON Publ! !j P. E. SIMPSON SUBSC* In Advanou Otherwise fSTBTT S. BEKNET'; * l.BO a yeai 2.00 a year ADVERTISING: Per Month , -. 1.00 Per Inoh Matters Municipal. On Monday next nominations will be open for the various city offices and it will be the privilege of the electors to nominate such citizens as they may deem capable of filling the various positions. Let the best men be chosen. It is useless to vote a man into a position that he is not qualified to fill. The ballot is free; use it wisely. Editorial Notes. No man hns over visited Leth-Uridge without having n good word for the town and the ]>eople after he haves. This is praise fur any town. It is a good advertisement to huve people m other places Speak in praise of the "Lethbridge way " Watch Lethbridge grow. The Calgary Herald thinks the campaign is still on. If there was any crookedness in the recent election, go after the guilty ones. Don't stop to ask what party they belong to. Put them where th'ey belong, and that is behind the bars. Has a Great Future. 1 . :he growth of towns in the wes , or in any part of the country for .hat matter, any marked change for the better is always based upon a substantial foundation. Especially is this the case with a town like Lethbridge, that has been in existence for a number of years. Lethbridge. has been a prosperous town fcr many years, but until the past two or three years, not a town of great ambitions. There has been a remarkable change in this respect, and the town that has been called slow in the past, seems to have taken on new life, new-energy and new hope. And there are the very best of reasons for these changes. No town can grow-faster than the country that is tributary to that town and upon which the town depends for its support. If there is such a growth it is not a legitimate one and must be followed by a reaction that is detrimental in the extreme to the community. Fortunately for Lethbridge the town has never had such an experience, and now with the rapid development of southern Alberta, Lethbridge is in just the right condition to profit to the fullest extent. There is going to be a wonderful growth in this part of the province and there is no town in better shspe to take advantage of the conditions. The CP K, recognizes the importance of this location as is demonstrated by the vast improvements now under way by that company. And furthermore, the changing of the divisional point to this town is evidence of some of the many good" things that that company has in store for Lethbridge. But Lethbridge is recognized as astragetical point by the C. P. R. and the town is now and has been for somo time in the eye of James Hill, of the Great Northern, as the proper place for him to enter the prairie country for his share of tho busi-ivss that will be growing so rapid-1.- for the next ten or fifteen years. L >ill be the great gateway from th .nuth to the province that is bet: known at this time to th people of the states than any other western province. There will be hundreds and thousands pass through here during the next few years, and Lethbridge will reap advantages like Winnipeg and Moosejaw. The coal measures of this section are bound to undergo greater, development, for the rapid settlement of the prairie is an enormous market for fuel. That will mean the employment of a still greater number of men in this industry und add to the commercial importance of Lethbridge, The futuro of Lethbridge is as bright today as tho future of any town in Canada, and in saying this the Herald does not mean to say that there is to be a boom. There will be legitimate growth, but no boom. There must bo a growth of this town to meet the demand of the developing country and if there is not, if the people fail to arise to the opportunities, that growth will go to some other town in this part of the province. That is the situation in a nutshell, and for self protection the people must meet it. .Men who are in business here will see their business increase for the reason that the population in the town and around tho town, will increase, The needs of the times will bring about the establishment of new industries, and that will eventually prove the basis of prosperity in Lethbridge, for the larger the payroll the greater the success of any town.  Wo^jji for Lethbridge, think for Lethbridge, talk for Lethbridge, and the results will be most gratifying to every resident of tho town. Southern Alberta looks good to the people of the western states. It is not surprising that the mail ear caught lire in the wreck near North May when it is known that it contained several sacks from C'aleviry. and that must probably a t'ew eopies ol the Kve Opener were mixed up in the hunch. It's rather funny, but there is no place on record where a jK>litician had to bo given knock-out drops to make him take the monev. Hotter) 4k DiNcn Are you saving some of that money you draw as a salary, young man? If not, why not? You are oentetl amidst the greatest opiwr-tunitics that can be found on the American continent today, and if you are not taking advantage of them, you are the worst kind of a ninny. Get in line and get some of the good things that are in sight. Lethbridge boasts of the finest lub house in Alberta. That speaks well for the people of this town. this The politicians are busy-week in Saskatchewan, and any kind of a prediction on results can be heard. There will be millions spent on mil way building in Alberta during the next ten years. The way to get ahead in this world is to work for it. Luck is a poor element, to depend upon. It won't hurt any man to attend church, and a lot of you fellows would be helped. Try it once. Our brothers and sisters across the imaginary line will revel in the joys of Thanksgiving turkey tomorrow. Another strike in the leather factories seems imminent. It will b�-hoove us to look to the saving of our soles. Old Missouri is getting wise She has passed a law forbidding the New York Life Insurance Co to transact business in that state You've got to show them in Missouri. Bringing comparison down to mathematical basis, Winnipeg is likely to have an average temijora-ture the coming winter of 10li;| degrees below zero. Of course tin comparison is based on the increased amount of heavy clothing so far stolen this fall. Jim Jeffries has come out with a declaration against football as being a brutal game. Poor, gentle, sensitive Jim! Being raised on lx>iler making and innocent pugilistic championships, it's no wonder th dreadful scrimmage gets on his nerves. A movement is on foot in New York for the scientific rearing of in fnnts that has for its object the ro lievingof tired and careworn parents from their arduous duties in connection with bringing youngsters through tho trying periods. Th thing sounds good and as fathers arc taking to it with avidity we wish it every success. However, as it has never been our duty to tread the hurricane deck of a cold and tack-bestrewn bedroom in the "still watches of tho night with a squalling kid in our arms, we are unabl to pass expert opinion. W. R. Hearst, of New York, am R. B. Bennett, of Calgary, will now have plenty of time to plan for a trip up the Arrow lukes next sum mer, when they can sympathize with one another and discuss "ways and means." Tmpuie milk is the latest thing to be condemned in Calgary. Our northern friends should keep al "taintablo" articles in a hermetically sealed cold storago cellar while there is an election on. ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING Of A. R. & I. Co.-Interesting Facts and Figures Showing Progress and Prosperity. The annual general meeting of the Alberta Railway and Irrigation Co.. was held at Winchester house. London. Kng. The Times' re|Kirt i says Mr. Klliott T. Gait was in the hair. In moving tin- adoption of the it'iK>rt which dealt with the operations of the conqviny during the nine months ended June !5H ast. thi' president stated that the property account, after adding the xpenditure and deducting the cost of land and nar.ow gauge equipment sold during that period, stood in the balance sheet at ST.-IStf.OiW. ind taking the lands at the price of $�1 per acre th cuiqKiny had altogether properi., * sufficient to cover the )�tr value of their issues of lebentures and shares. The net revenue from colliery, railways, anals, and land sales amounted to and after providing for London exiwiise.*, So.SHi and interest on prior lien debenture stock. $117.4 2N, there was a balance of $150.1*1. The current liabilities were offset by the current assets, and the conqwuiy had unencumbered tin estate, sold, but not yet jxtid for. of the valuecf $7.V\24. During the nine months under review the company sold 18,000 acres of and irrigable and unirrigable at an average price of $12.50 per acre, the maximum price received for the irrigable lands being $110 ]ier acre nd the minimum price 10. The The $'M land was situated immediately outside and around tin town of Lethbridge. the headquarters of the company's lines, where the Gait collertes wen located. The minimum price of $10 was below the present selling price, 1 nit the land was sold at that price to a cluster of settlers. For the non-irrigable or winter wheat land the maximum price received was $7and the minimum price was5 |�er acre. Tin- sale of irrigable land was the more profitable, inasmuch as the couqiany received not only i'i per cent. on the unpaid Ivtlituce of the purchase money, but also SI per acre per annum according to the quantity of water,! he purchaser might take. The receipts from water rentals for the nine months were ^lti.'.nit'i. This year they would probably amount'to $1*.01X). The couqiany gave what practically amounted to free water if peopl contracted to stav for two or thre years. It would therefore tak probably from one to three years before they received the maximum rentals of thi- whole of the lands already sold. The expenses of operating the canals were about S' year. In the four mouths which had elapsed since July 1st the company had sold -1.0*11 acres at an aggregate price of over i?:t7.00l>. 'The tentative stage had now been passed and it was considered that in future better prices ought to be realized. The jxjsition of the company was so good that they could iifl'oi 1 to wait for tin prices to which it was consider*'* they were entitled. Irrigable lands hacrouB concern, and indirectly, the company were great lv interested in its prosperity they had an excellent combination in the ownership of the colliery,the railways, the lands and the water which all fed each other. They |X)SBcsscd large cash rerseves, and in addition, had upwards of $(,K>,-000 of land mortgages, which were easy of Bale and available, for any outlay that may be required. There were absolutely no bail debts or depreciation to write off. Mr A M. Nanton, of the firm of Messrs Osier, Hammond & Nanton, of Winnipeg, had been api>oiuted managing dhector of the coiujxiny The business had grown ro much that the appointment was absolute ly necessary.
