Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 4, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbridge Daily Herald VOL. vn. Alberta. FrUliiy, October 4, Number 231 WHERE THE EASTERNER HAS IT ON THE WESTERN MAN He Eats Our Prime Western Beef at Considerably Less Expense Than We Do and Living Costs Him Less WHY THE DIFFERENCE IN PRICE I High Cost of Living Embarrasses the Workingman .and He is Entitled to Know the Reason liOc and 18e, ba n Moose Jaw beef cent less but veal-'i The Dominion Labor Gazette for the mouth of September Inst furnishes some Interest-ing facts dealing with the retail of staple commodities in Canada during August. At once one ItROomes curious and without more' ado delves into that, great problem name- ly THM COST Which in at the present day proving a veritable thorn in flesh the workingma' and liis family. Some say we might be worse off but on the other hand when one makes a careful survey of the situation It dq'fls not seem at all likely that this can be so as things aland at the present lime. There is always unquestionably some underly- ing current which. Is responsible for the high and altogether unwarrantable prices asked lor particular commodit- ies. Will a solution ever be found and if so when? Some Meat Comparisons. It, Is interesting to note for Instance t.liat in "Winnipeg beef is quoted at c and veal 1'Jc, mutton 25c, and 18e, bacon, smoked 25c. eef prices are one -'is quoted at 23c, with mutton and pork the same as in Winnipeg, bacon however is 23c. At Edmonton beef is priced at 25u and J7c, veal and mutton and pork' the same. Bacoii'it will be-iioted is quoted at In Lethbridge beef prices "are 22c ,aud 17c, veal 22c, and mutton 25o, with, pork-at 22c. Bacon, is quoted at 30c. It will be observed that the 'greatest, difference in the I meat prices is in the price of best smokcU bacon which sells in Wlnni- peg for 6 c per pound less than it does in Lfithbridge. Calgary and lUoose Jaw only pay 23c per pound. On the other hand comparing prices against those quoted say iu Ottawa, we find beef quoted at 20c and 15c, veal mutton 35c, pork 18c, bacon 20c. To- ronto sells beef at 20c and mutton 15c, pork 16c, and bacon ]Sc. In Southern Alberta we raise our own beef practically at our very doors yet we have to pay more for il tha-n they do in the East. In Toron- to veal and mutton, for instance can be bought for and lac per pound while we in iLetbbridge have to pay 22c and 2Sc. What is the Farm Produce Dairy and creamery butter in Win- nipeg during August last sold for line, at Regiiia it was 25c and 30c, at Ed- monton and Lethbridge 30c to ofic, while Calgary paid 25c and "3Sc. lu Toronto dairy and creamery butter sold at 25c and But it is in the price of new laid eggs where we find a marked difference in prices. In Winnipeg, Moose Jaw and Calgary, in Toronto anil Ottawa they brought 30c. In Edmonton however we find the same price namely 30c, while In Lethbridge we paid -iOc, and here we have a reason. Mixed fanning in the northern capital fcs carried out on a very much larger scale than in Loth bridge where the ftinner has no market to sell his pro- uci. The encouragement of mixed farming Is a very essential matter in the question of low prices because ihe Ifirser market the producer has at his door the greater advantage will the i consumer derive. It is a matter of sup- ply and demand and the more exten- sive mixed farming becomes the quick- er will the cost ot living bo reduced and this also applies to stock raising. It is not enough thai the farmer should content himself with grain growing. He must do more than that. Yes, he must cultivate the garden truck hab- it ou a, wider scale, he must moreover go in for chicken raising and egg Cann- ing not forgetting stock raising. When he does these things he will hav-s placed himself in a very secure posi- tion, inasmuch as he will always have something ready tor maiv ketiiig. Markets, however, must be every town in Ca- the consumers can HOLIDAY FOR SCHOOLS The'Herald has received the following self-explanatory le'l- Iloyal Highness, the Dulte of Connaiight, Cover- nor-Guneral of Canada, has been pleased to command that the pupils of the Lethbrfdge schools be granted a holiday on the 10th-day oC October, on the oecasion of the visit of the Hoy- nl Party to that town.

Only one .profit, and Ihe man who will take the profit will be the horny handed son of tho soil. The workingnmn will save a penny or two and his family will have more off this world's goods. But there is one commodity which the consumer pays dearly for in Western Canada, partic- ularly in Southern Alberta and that ia potatoes. Here is abundant material Cor thought.

Christian appeared in the dock dressed almost identically in the way which he wag garbed when the shooting took place.

ES-Detectivo Egan was present, looking .rather .wan after his three weeks in the hospital. However, lie recovering from effects of the shot which nearly took his life, and made a good witness. He. sat while giving evidence, taking a posi- tion directly in front of the accused, and kept his eyes directly 011 him throughout the 'whole preliminary. Hf was somewhat pale when he faced Christian for the first time since the shooting, and for a moment the court held its breath fearful of develop- ments. Crown Attorney Conybeare appear- ed for the prosecution, while R. A. Smith appeared for the defence. Egnn stated that he had had no pre- vious relations with the accused, ei- cept that he had spoken to him a couple of times about his conduct while in the city. Ou the night of the shooting he had been to ihe post of- fice, and was on his way home. Christ- ian, with two other men, was stand- ing in tbe alcove beside the Bank of Commerce, when witness passed with Leslie Silliker and .M. S. Bryan. He sakl, "Come here, Egan, f want you." I said, "Go to-----. J want, nothing to do 'with you.'" "I heard a shot a second or two af- terwards, turned my head, and saw accused standing with the revolver still smoking, ani! pointing at me. T told Silliker I was shot, and to watch out for he had a revolver. After that I don't remember much of what hap- pened until I woke up in the hospital next morning."
