Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 10, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta C4 lEHERiLD CO^ LTD. SaBSCRZPTXON: i.eo  yMr aifoo  year It. OVBRTZSmO; t^OO#�rlaob ||||i|lit Kind of Pablicity. Ex-Mayor Rogers told the wholD ftm'tb'whfcn he declared, on his return IffroAvthe east, that v^ry iH/Tle naa �kaowa down there about Lethbridge iittad;Southern Alberta. As a matter l^vfifiict tine has to take' a map and 4|M�lnt but this part ot the country E|>? Battlcford, Prince Alberta and ^ iUDtiig^fy have spent money in write and page advertisements in east papers. They put before the of- the eastern people all the knatB concerning their respectifvc dis-ItWctfc' : What has Lcthbridge done? Ij*;. It has yielded to the arguments ot >v(|wery'smooth tongucd individual who ^^^kad an illustrateKl edition to get out. iar with the great and rich resourc If . M;'of this country. We beWeve in vihis respect the lloarii of Trade and jiiJity Council, have follov-ed a rather unwise policy m the past. Write ups ;j and page ads are all right but they Swant to be put where they will do r'moBt good. ' J' .',W;ith such a policy in practice there ;:i�ouId be considerably less ignorance about Lethbridge and Southern Al-t�r�a. Hie Little Hammer Again. �yEnry causes more cruel and unde-Berve.'ighbor8 won�lenentation of Mr. BonVen's at-iterahoes the guilt cannot be attached to The Herald but to the Winni-I>eg Telegram and the Edmonton Tournal. Investigate This Case. The deAiti'te charge is made that the agent of the Dominion government deliberately declarctl that Southern AHwrta was not a good whi>at country on the ground that it was too. dry for wheat growing. This is a serious charge and the Department ot Interior should invt>s-tigate iind if proven the agent at Spokane should l�j handed his envelope nnd told to look for another job Southern Aiborta only asks fair pl�,y. Its fields are an evidence of its richness. But knocks such as are alk'g-ed to have boon handed out from Sj'.i kune will do us damage. iVopIs will not come near ustto .see .'or Ih'in-selves. They will not thinic it wi rth while after hearing the stat'iiwiit of a govornmont official. It is the dut.v of the Dop.i'-t mmt of the Interior to take thi.s :xuiltcr up without delay. If there r.rc any knockers of Southern Alberta in its service they must be got rid 'i. By the way the Dcpai-tinont s.ould administer a sound tongue ll.r�>iliing to this chap who issues reports nh-out the crops from Southern .M'jcrta and forgets all about tltu l^ellibiidge district. It is not a fair d. al Somebody in the dopartmotit nt Ottawa is either mighty cnrjloss or is using a little hammer in this district. Maaufactuivr Oumey wouM lite one of the political parties to haag Haelf on Haraan's gallows. Give Lethbridge more publiciity. This is a good city to talk about. Don't get cold feet just because you can't borrow a dollar in tht�se times of .stringency. There is a good time coming. LuthbridRe, the great railroad centre Of Alberta.

You can count on it that I^'th- misfortune in the shape of a snow-j K^'^K ^'^ " atorm and a frost. The people and by the Fargo (N.D.) Forum'and othr "papers in which the'hammer was' lapplicd vigorously to Alberta.^ The ^Bierald docs not hesitate to republish palpable falsehood;- �,^:J',"E^wy, day almost reports are lie-liiag'received hero of crop failures and liflappointments in Alberta, Canada. I^Ite situation is so bad that the '"Sunny Southern Alberta" is p^wgardcd as a joke. The term was |mppl>�d to the country by the oily Ibngucd land agents, who evidently bncludod that the country needed something poetical about' it, as nature failed to supply it, dopted a title which would lead one ta;w>lll not even be sflm^^ftmauir, unless he had t>bai^(A�c�wunt to draw from. 'MKt^experienoe of those who , . . ____^ing that one of the weaik points of /J;J?�"K'� (prop, which represented tho I^nurier govei^nmeni policy was tbey had.

It is true that Mr. Borden did deny in an interview at Winnipeg that ^bten In Alberta for several he had called these people "undesir-l^^st W4II probably put a dam-' ablp settlers" during his speechmak-"i^tbe-'iOinigration there.

Hon. R. P. Koblin was heralded to speak at Calgary at his leader's mooting but ho wasn'it there. If Koblin fails 'to show up at the Manitoba meetings Borden will wish he had postponed his western tour until after ho had whipped the malcontents into line. OUR POINT OF VIEW The 'EBBtem Tory papers are gett ing mixed. They teH of the frosts killing the crops and of the enthusiasm attending all Borden's meetings Tho proper order is a record of the frost that struck Borden and the enthusiasm that exists because of the bumjior croiw. Tho Toronto Mail and Empire,says in its isHuo of Sept. SOth. ''Mr. Borden is being received in the West with a degree of enthusiasm comparable only to that with which he has iKten greeted throughout Eastern Canada." Of course this/ was written before the lethbridge meeting which was as devoid of enthusiasm as a billiard ball of hair. One Bible character Is better .known now than ever befors �ttd that is Hanuui* A tariff as high as Haman'si gallows is the desire of one Toronto manufacturer. The political party that boosts the tariff as high as that will lie sairo to swing on those gallows too with tlie Canadian voters as the executioners. W. R. Hearst says he does not want the presidency of the United States. .For a very good reason, which he failfS to mention, and thot is that ho could not got it. , ; A Great Game. (Special to the Herald.)

The body, on Monday morning was shipped to Philadelphia, which' was the tormer home of the deceased gentleman. Mrs. Person and Wn- Henderson of the Lethbridge hotel, where the departed had made his home, accompanied the body. During the two years of his residence In Lethbridge, Col. Peterson had won a high place in the regard of the people of Lethbridge. Although an 4irdent American he entered heart-li'ly into any movement that was for tlw promotion of ttv welfare of leth bridge and the surrounding district. Doth as a public official and as a pri vate citizen he was very highly ee-teemed by the people < of Lethbridge, who have a deep fesling of sorrow at his untimely departure and of sympathy for Mrs. Peterson in lisr affliction.
