Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 10, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta ALMRTA, tATUROAV, OCTOBER II, 'lM PAQt TMfttt. ABOUT.. COUNCIL fcfe Ltd Jbjw'i Well, thpfte salary iucreaies' .did kick up u small tempest and brought the council in for the .wowt gatioa it has got this year. And then we hear later through so quietly thai even the ears of the reporters could, noj, hear it slipping through. It must "been on the strict Q. .T. And the fun of it is that tin one that was so surreptitiously spirited through was the most popular ot-the buuvu. Everyone admits that Arthur Reid should have a larger salary than he was. getting. what a gathering under' the plum-tree there was, when tlu city officials knew that the plums were ripe and that Dad and Aid. lyes, the finance minister, were shaking the tree. Thera was an awful skiirryiiig to get under, especially when they saw that the Scriptural 'injunctions were being carried out in so "far that the city solicitor asked lor a. plum they game him a watermelon. The watermaster got under and ask- ed Dad to shake him down a plum, but instead of a plum they gave him a lemon. There was another stand- ing under the tree but whjn he saw the lemons starting to fall he skidoo- ed. The plums reserved for the po- lice force'were found to be a little gresn and will not b shaken off for a few days. I know -Dad would get into a mix-up; if he started out giving fat increases they were de- served or not, especially sine before the estimates were made he and the others had decided that money was too valuable, because of its scarcity, to be away.' A good many peo- ple have strong feelings that if salar- ies are being raiseu at all that the watermaster should have one coming too, when the city engine, r in whom Dad have such implicit, faith that he u as good as an engineer.. and hat teen serving the city .Uiihfully since the tystenn waa put in..

Box 62 7 FOSTER, FOWLER, POPE ft COMPANY When the" police made a'raid the homes of the painted and powder- ed beauties the other day they found out some things that are not record- ed in' the sentences given by the magistrate. These women are bad enough and are a serious menace to society. But no one who has any of the milk of human kindness left in his "befog can help but-feel some measure of sympathy for the poor fallen creatures who, arc outcasts of society because of the lust and greed of men who were stronger. But what words can exprcas the" feelings any person would have for a man who would live upon the )f vice of ,these falien WHAT LAURIER HAS DONE creatures. From? trie Te.yjWerfce.; given by the police as a result- the raids it ie almdet 'certain that th re t, beings going -by the in this city who '-are making unholy profit out of the nefarious business. Among tlie ways that they are doing it is -to rent houses to them at most exorbitant; rentals. is to build a: house for -them and s ,11 it to them at a price far exceeding what they would get from anyone else. It maybe a hard 'matter for the police to. get evidence t" prove that' these things exist. But if they do it means long terms in the penitentiary miserable men who would sell their own souls and other people's virtu.. for a few paltry dollars. It is to, be. hoped and it is believed that Chief Gillespie will make a. most 'rigid vestigation and -soak the fellows who are responsible for a good deal of tha vice th'at exists -in the city. (Montreal Herald.) After all, Laurier's work, the record of accomplishment in the Twelve Years of Laurier, is at least as worthy of consideration as the flaws his opponents have been able to find in some items of administration after going all over it with a rake.

Mr. Fowler got his nomination on Saturday last, and on accepting it, made a speech defending himself ugainst the charges laid at his door. He declared that all his proce.dings in connection with his purchase of land from the Canadian Pacific Rail- way wore straightforward business transactions. He "Some years ago I bought in the open market a large tract of land from the Canadian Pacific Railway Company. I bought it in open trade, just as any man could have bought it, it with the intc-ntion to sell it at a profit if I could. Is there any crime in that?

In view of this explanation, added interest will found in the letter written by Mr. Fowler to his co-la- borer, Mr. kefurgey, on Oct. 4, 1902 "Dear havi suc- ceeded beyond our wildest hopes.

The main purport in narratr- ing Mr. Fowler's connection with them is to get his view as to what is straight business transaction. In the quotation from his speech given above he asks: Do you say that your rep- resentatives iu Parliament must not engage in fair and honest should have explained about buying property at and hav- ing the deed prepared as if he had paid for'it.

Laurier's' work conduced to an in- crease in- the amount of capital in- vested in manufacturing industries, from in 1900 to 834 mil- lions in 1905; in the amount of wages paid from 113 millions in 1900 to 162 millions in 1905; in the amount of output .from 481 millions in 1900 to 706 millions in 1905. Laurier's work has led to the entry of immigrants the twelve yeara ..of Lauri.-r, and to the stop- page of the exodus which 1897 was draining Canada of its life-bipod. Laurier's work is responsible for there being a million people in the Western provinces and nearly 000 farms.

Messrs. Fowler and Pope do not appear to put up more "than apiece; Messrs. Le- furgey and Bennett, who were in the syndicate, appear have really put up a considerable sum of money. Mr. Bennett has stated that he put into the transaction. Before it was posible. to turn the deal ov.-r it was necessary to make another payment. In this emergency Meusr.s. Fowler and Pope were enabled to me.t their of the great coal and metaliferous I obligation by a note signed by them areas of the Crow's Pass district and endorsed, by Mackenzie Mann. Soon after this the speculators en- countered Mr. Foster, with the trust fund millions of the Foresters at his back. He was manager of the Union Trust Company, controlling the funds, of the Foresters. Did he ,as manager of the .trust company, deal directly with Messrs. Fowler and Pop1? Ah, no; there would have been nothing for the boy in that process. It was necessary to create a toll-gate between these gr-'at personages of the world of high finance.

Brock, of Winnipeg, general manager of the Great West Life In- surance Co., his son, and C. P. Mc- Queen, of Calgary, general agent of the company for Alberta, were in the city yesterday. Mr. Brock says that their opinion of Lethbridge can best be expressed by tlie fact that the company has placed in loans in Lt'thbridge this year. by the construction of a railway. j Lfiurier's work is seen in the Rail- wp.y Commission, continuously arbi- trating between railroads and cus- tomers, so successful as to be the envy of other countries.
