Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 29, 1905, Lethbridge, Alberta lETRBRIDai^ jERALD SIMPSON c Publ.i T. E. SIMPSON SXJBSCf In Advance Otherwise S. BENNETT ti.50 a yea: 92.00 a year ADVERTISINO: Per Month _ -1 1.00 Per Inch 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 buUot is free; use it wisely. Editorial Notes. No nmn has ever visited Letli-bridge without having n good word for the town and the jn'ople after he, h'.'ivt's. This is praise for any town. It is a good adverlisouu'nt to have people in other places speak in praise of the "Lethbridge wav " Watch Lethbridge grow. The Ualgary Herald tliinks cam]>aign is still on. the Has a Great Future. no ad- 1 i the growth of towns in the wes:, or in any part of the country for ihat matter, any marked change for the better is always based upon a substantial foundation. Especially is this the case with a tovax 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 apd 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 be a wonderful growth in this part of the province and there is to>ra in better shspe to take vantage of the conditions. The C. P E. 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 evidence of some of the many good things that that company has in store for Lethbridge. But Leth bridge is recognized as a stragetica point by the C. P. R. and the town is now and has been for some 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 the busi ucss that will be growing so rapid ly for the next ten or fifteen years Ii will be the great gateway from the south to the province that bet:. ;. known at this time to the people of the states than any other western province. There will be hundreds and thousands jmss through here during the next few years, and Lethbridge will roup 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 still greater number of men in this industry and add to the commercial importance of Lethbridge, The future of Lethbridge is as bright today as the 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 be a growth oi 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 sita-ution in a nutshell, and for self protection the people must meet it. Men who are in business here will Bee their business increase for the reason that the popuktion in the town and around the 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. �'-^jo^ for Lethbridge, think for lethbridge, talk for Lethbridge, - American continent today, and if ment sold during that perioil. stootl you are not taking advantage of iu the balance stieet at ST,4St5,0o0. them, you are the worst kind of a ''^^"'y 1''"^^^ ''^ ^^^'r pr'��of ^ . . ,.
