LETHBRID6E HERALD S'MPSON A BUCHANAN Publishers W. A. BVCHAMAK SaBSCRlPTION: ^nAdvaact* tlSO year O.herwlse 2.00 a year ADVERTISING: Pat Month SLOO Per Inch OUR STREETS. W� want to see Lettebridge grow, but not in population alone. . We muat grow in eneiigy, in appearance, in Unity and in cnthuaiaam., Without these assets in our campaign'to oVl^e a�d>bHdgie bigger and better n^e'caohtit expect rmults. Just, a word about the appearance of the city. Letbbridge looks well ii you keep your eyes off the streets and boulevards, but when you take a glance downu-ard, if you have any ci\tc pride at all, yoti feel ashamed. Our streets arc in a deplorable condition. They arc as full of bitmps" a.s the proverbial rocky road which led irto Dublin. What the city needs is a stone crusher and ' a grader that will keep the roads level and free from these disgustirg lumps that jolt a conv^eyonco every time one passes along. Again the weeds or the streets and boulevards woukl lead a stranger to believe the city was a deserted liiiace. Weeds should nevar grow where there is energy and activity. Some of our streets are a dl.sgracp. The remedy is -a scra|>(;|; Ihot will clean them all out. Thoy Jimy come up again, but keep scraping theni out and the streets look better. any indication, they are hustling freight and mail service ha\v ntnxco' towns, with a population of enor - driven it to the insane asylum. Jiut getic, thrifty |)erisins and modem in its ambitions. Buy a steam roller and httv�e our streets kept in presertablo shape. The crop of weeds in some-of Leth-bridgc's streets would rur> rtbout 150 bushels to the acre. Itemember it ts SheriW Young the future. in A niBLICmf CONMISSrONER. What Lethbridge ncotls is a publicity commissioner. The liuard of Trade should appoint him and pay him, out o( the grunt given by the City Council, ontl the revenues of the Board, which could be largely inrrcascd it the mcmb-.-r-ship fee was made at leost $3 | of the reasons that I'al Hurns. the meat king of Canadti. is so popular is because of his democratic spirit. In Calgary he has the finest rcsid -once in.Western Canada where ho cn = tertains in a most lavish riiaiii i>r. And yet the other night he rodo from Calgary to Maclood in tho 5ni-uiigrant car with some frieids to lio sociable. That is the way Burns is ntode and it is a pity that thoi� aro not more like him. Munoy will wv-er hurt him." But os a irattor of fact, heaps of us that money woulil never hurt, ride in thoso iminigrant cars every time wb innkc n trip from Calgary to Mauleod. Wh.v tho other night three such distiiiffuishod journalists as Mott of the Fernie I,o!l-ger: JIagell of tho News, and David Hearst Elton, had to sit . on slat seats, ond with Ohinamc-n all alxiu^ them, on a trip from Calgary lo Macleod. It didn't aficct their dig -nity though the.v di-d suffer phy.sical lorment. Pat Uurn.s is I'.kc the iv.sf, of sensible people ha makes tho licst of what the CP.It. provjiles. A POOR SERVICE. Tha telegraph system, which the people of I.�thbridge haye to realize tho fact. Why shouldn't the C.P.R. telegraph Co. be able to handle business here as expediously as in Ontario? Why should people have to wait half a day or more to get a ' tcle-gramto its destination? Why fdtould the continual excuse Ire offered "wires down between here and Winnipeg" or "between here and Calgary." Surely to goodness the tcl^raph company has enough business in the west to warrant three or four commercial wires. At present it looks as though wo were dcpemi-ing upon one. Wait till competition comes an'i see how quickly the system will improve. As long as tho company has the n-est at its mercy the system will 1m! as it is, unless the people raise a howl that will make the comiMiny sit up ami listen. Apart from that our only salvation .s rompe'tition and it car't come too soon. The Ottawa Ooverninont will never he criticised if .it always ma'ces as sensible appointments as that of Chorles A. Stuart to the bench. Mr. Stuart is a lawyer of ability, integrity and industry and he will be a distinct credit to the judiciar.v ol Alberta. We hope the powders -.viil sec that ho is locatc supported. Leader Robertson, the Opposition loader, has not proved himself to be a mkin of broad mind or energetic spirit, and has not warranted any such encouragement as the election of an adtlitional supporter might give him. There was nothing "dead" about A. E. Mooi-e. w-ho has just l-efl lla.v-mond to reside in Calgary. Ilo was a booster from Iloostervillc. tta.v-niond can never value the work ho drd for it. while he resided there. He took cil'lzcnship seriously and inlon-tifiorl himself with, all the orgnni-Nations that wouM help the town and community. He hocanio the life of some of thes-e and now that ho has left, his absence will telt, proljobly more than RaA-mord ever realized. One men can make himself a mrighty factor in a town and A. 15. Moore was that sori. C. M. ARNOLD LEAVES To Accept a Position in New Mexico. Railroad accidents seem to be the worst epidemic Canada is suffcrirg fron� at present. Xcarly every day rows comes of some disaster or other. The city should have put down every year a certain amount of cem'iit walks. I^t us gradually get rid of the wooden sidewalks, which have to be continually replaced. GOSSIP By the ON THESID� Tattler EMTORIAL MOTES. At the Alberta Press Association 1 met the proprietor of the Golden. B.C., Star. We spent most, of the time in a controversy as to why he did. not call the paper the OoMen Rule. He claimed it wouldn't have paid, if he had named it that. Ver.v general and genuine i-egrct was expressed in the city when it was learned that C. M, Arnold, chief engineer of the A.R. & I. Co. had resigned to accept a.t important pos: tion on an irrigation project in Nijw Mexico. It can he safely saifl tliat no gontlcmaii. has enjoyed tho lo-sjjoct and esteem of l.ythbridgc people to a greater extent than .Mr. Arnold. In professional and soc-iil life he t>osscs.scd ahost of friond.s. who trust that his absence in Now Mexico will not lie of a pormnncnl nature. Mr. Arnold, will be associated with fi. G. Anderson, consulting engineer, Denver, Col., formerl.v oj the .'\.H. A 1. Co. and his headquarters will be at Albuqucrquo New Mexico, A. M. Grace is also associated with Mr. Anderson in engineering work at Greeley, Colorado. Mr. /^old left for New Afexico t n Tuesday morning. Mrs. Arnold will romain ir: the city for some time Ijeforo joining her husband. Watch I.ethbridge grow. Udhbritlge is a fine city, but if all get together and boost, we can make it a goed deal bigger and better than it Is. The Herald Is growing in.iavor ev. ery day.
