Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 4, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE HER AID S'MPSON A BUCHANAN Publishers G. SIMPSON W. A.

Jt town, and ns these papers are first | yelped so persistently and so loudly class papers, we conclude that In - at the naughty railroad and ti-.o nisfail und Okotoks are first class wretched postal service that. vho tan- J -jlo was soon straightened out and ADVERTISING: Pet Month  91.00 Per Inch OUR STREETS. Wo want to sec Lethbridge grow, but not In population atoms. . We must grow in energy, In appearance in unity and in enthusiasm., With out these assets in our campaign' to riialtc Lethbridge bigger and better ice cannot expect results. Just a word about the appearance ol' the city. Lethbridge looks well if you keep your eyes off the streets and boulevards, but when you take a glance downward, if you have any cl\tc pride at all, you feel ashamed. Our streets arc in a deplorable condition. They arc as full of "bumps" ns the proverbial rocky road which led Irto Dublin. What the city needs Is a stone crusher ami a grader that will keep the roads level and free from these disgustirg lumps that jolt a conveyance every time one passes along. Again the weeds on tho streets and boulevards would lead a stranger to believe tho city was a de sorted plnce. Weeds should never grow where there is energy and act ivity. Some of our streets are disgrace. The remedy Is a scraper that will clean them all out. They limy come up again, but keep scrap ing them out and the streets will look better. places. George Hulas Foster, once Anuhcc minister of Canada, is not as g'roat n financier, as the Conservative party tried to make him out to be. Tho exposures boforo tho Insurance Commission at Toronto, convince us that he has been greatly over rated. Finance master Pickling has been hold up to ridicule and scorn by the Tory press, but ho will stand mighty favorable comparison with ex-Fin-ance Minister Foster. "if life worth living?" Sure U is, If you are ll\lng in bright, -balmy, beautiful Southern Alberta. That steam show! ought to bo moved from the station to some of our streets, so that the rough spcts can be removed. Lethbrklge's stiwts are not n i.redlt to a cliy that is enterprising and modern in its ambitions. Buy a steam roller and have our streets kept In preset table shape. Tho crop of weeds In some-of l**th-brldgo's streets would rur rtbout 150 bushels to the acre. DELAY! DELAY! ltomember It Is Sheriff Young the future. In October 1st signalized our birth as u Judicial centre. Now let us have, a judge here. The Ottawa Government will never be criticised if .it always ma;os as sensible appointments as that of Charles A. Stuart to the l>eneh. Mr. Stuart is a lawyer of ability, integrity and industry ami he will bo a ; distinct credit to tho judiciary oi  Alberta. We hope the po.wors w-.U j sec that he is located at LethUridt,o j Mr. Stuart's resignation creates a vacancy in the Legislature. He was' the member for Ololchcn.

What Lethbridge needs is a publicity commissioner. The Hoard of Trade should appoint him ami pay him, out of the graV. given by the City Council, nnd the revenues of the Hoard, which could the t'amroso Mall, is now tho Uiiile by -which everybody swears. Capf.. Thomas is the quill driver to him, the only place on tho map is Cam rose. 'Old Man" Simpson tolls us: "One of the reasons that I'al Hums, the moat king 'of Canada, is so popular Is because of his democratic spirit.. In Calgary he has the finest rosid -once In. Western Canada whore he entertains In a most lavish imimor. And yet the other night ho rode from Calgary to Macleod in tho immigrant car with some friei ds to ho sociable. That Is the way Hums is made and it is a pity that there are not more like him. Money will tinv-or hurt him." tint ns a matter of fact, heaps of us that money would nover hurt, rido in those immigrant cars overy time we make a trip from Calgary to Maoleod. Why tho other night three such distinguished Journalists as Molt of tho Fornio 1/nl-ger: llngoll of tho News, and David Hearst Klton. had to sit . on slat j seats, ami with Chinamen nil alwuit, j them, on a trip from Calgary to j Macleod. It didn't alVoct their dig - j nlty though they did suffer physical j torment. Pat Hums is l'.ke tho ivsi | of sensible people he makes the best i of what tho CPU provides. \ There was nothing "dead" about A. P. Moore, who has just left Haymow! to reside in Cnlgnr.x. lie was | a booster from IVoostorvillo. Iliiy-mond can never value the work ho dkl for It. while hu resided there, lb-took cil'.zonship seriously and identified himself with all tho organi -/ations that wnukl help tho town and community. Ho became the life of some of those nnd now thnt h - j has left, his absence will le felt, prolmbly more than llnymnid ever ' roalixctl. One man can make himself a mighty factor in a town nnd A. V.. Moore was that sort. W� cannot occupy our new building before November and the selling season between that and the end of the year is too short to dispose of the immense stoek we bought for the opening of our new store on Sept. 1st. consequently we will sacrifice prices instead of carrying the goods over.

A P00I SERVICE. Tho telegraph system, which tho people of Ijethbridge have to 'depend upon Is simply wretched. It is not. a system at all but merely a bluff. A company that frequently takes r:x seven and eight hours to get mxt -sages through from Calgary, ought to lose its franchise. The west is growing hut tho tole -graph company does not seem t j realize tho fact. Why shouldn't the C.l'.ll. telegrupn Co. bo able to handle business hero us expediousty as in Ontario? Why should peoplo have to wait half a day or more to get a tole-gramto its destination? Why should the continual excuse I o oflored "wires down between here and Winnipeg" or "between hero and Calgary." Surely to goodness tho telegraph company has enough business in tho west to warrant three or four commercial wires. At present it looks as though wo were depend -ing upon one. Wait till competition comes ani see how quickly tho system will improve-, As long as tho com|iany has tho west at its mercy tho system will Ito as it is, unless tho peoplo raise a howl that "Will make tho company sit up and liston. Apart from that our only salvation .s competition and it cat't come loo soon. GOSSIP By the ON THE SIDE Tattler Arnold. In professional and snci tl possossod nhost tissue luted with n. (1.
