Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 11, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta IETHBRID6B HERALD S*T)cral candidate, had been in the field only about ten days oiving to the with-ilrawnl of Hepburn. He did well voder the circunutances, and ntaterWil-ly bettered the position o( tlie lAb-cral party." That soems to be a truthful statement and yet papers in Alberta wouUI try to clicer tlio downcast Conscrvatiws with the report that East I-^lgCn had retnmo;J a Conservative for the first time in twenty >-cnr.s. CROOKED MKTHODS. Rger of the Doll Tclophom? Co., he has proved hinmvlf .a obliging official and we ilo not, know of a place where there arc as few com -plaints about telcplionc service as Lethbridgc and this is due to the careful ami diligent attention Mr. iiallirord. has given to nintntainin>f the elllciency of the sorvico. He has built up the c.xchangi' here, until there are nearly two huttdred phones now in use, liethbridge standing third in the province. We trust is not far distant when Mr. Oalliford will lie Imck with us again. >�> GOSSIP By llw ON THE SIDE Tattltr  �---- - 1 1  The Pioneer is agitating for a bank for, Magrath. EUon is making so much money down there that Iw wants a vault in which to place it. The Reform party in Ontario is cur.sed with a few "slick" politjCians and the sooner tliey are put out of the party the better for liberalism ond political morality. No better class of people can bi-found in Ontario than those who call themselves Liberals and believe in the pbi.ey of the Liberal government, but there is an element gain -ing ground in the Liberal party, that will wreck it sooner or later, unless they are put out of the ranks. The revelations in London. Oat., -proA'c that that city is cursed wiH the dominance in the Liberal party there of "smart alecks" who thitik the only, way to win an election if to buy i votes by the wholesale. London ts a croohwl c;ty, politically Conservative crookedness has b.j�n exposed there on many occasions ami now that the searchli^t has been turned on the Liberals, thuy are fouiid to Ije just as bad. It is to be hoped that the exp s-urc will teach Liberals the lossjn that political immorality is a curse to the party, and will make them resolve to banish from their ranks all mi.Ted up in crookjd deals. ANOTHER TEAM NEEDED. During last week, when the wind was blowing heavy, the merchants had to suffer from the dust nuisance even though the city had purchased two watering oarts, which if they bad been at work sprinkling on the Mtreeu; would have counteracted the w.nd'a influence. But they weren't at work. Why? Because the city has only one team to do all the corporation work, and as they are busy at present drawing material for the worjc now being done constructing �ew.-!r and waterworks extensions. In case of fir* tWs team is also brought i>i-to aervioe. .Surely I�thhridgc can alTord an extra team of corporation horsrs, no that, the city can have its streets sprinkled regularly, and other nece.-i-sory work done, without loading upon on� team all the work. Look '.nto this matter, and si>e if it cannot be remedied. With electric lights and the Star shining in Cardston, that town Aould be the brightest spot in .Alberta. One of our cst.mablc young men was out at a very late hour om evening last week. The wind was lilouing and it carried the hat oil the young man's head. Ho starte>l in pursuit and chased it half a mile and finally had to fall on it to pre veni it lieing carried to Taber.     Another hat opisoile. The wind took n fedora off an oW gcntlcmon's "pate" and hustled it along Ford St. Ben Kiever's dog Is an ade|>� in rrchnnt said: "J'II give you tho l�est hat(l"\^ got in the. stoJv if you tell me what countryman I am," Me. McKillop thought it over while the man was waiting on a customer and in a few minutes declarwi, "Why you're from the Isle of Man." The merchant nearly fell over, but tw had enough breath left to loll .Mr. McKillop to pick out the I*."?! hat m the tihop. scHooLjroim Drill Competition and Games Were a Success. Thei-hurcbes are clanioriag for men for religious work in the west. .Every Tom. Dick and Harry will not do out here, we want the right sort. We want cheerful, buoyaivt, broad-minded pn^acbers, not the narrow,, tUink-the-world-is-gett-ing worse class. Bishop Talbot take it a pi>int to impress this coni-littny wKb our splendid location in 4he eeniro of a big grain growing ilMriet.

OalHfoi^ 'l�a>�ng. tfM dty Bishop Talbot in the article I mention tells a good story on Bishop Kemper. It appears the latter, while driving in a stage coach, was once,held up by highwajincn. The robbers wanted the Bishop to dis -gorg^. Ife told them he was a Bishop. "Did you say you were a Bishop''" one of them asked. "Yes, just a poor Bishop." "What church?" 'n�e EpiscopcU." "The hell you arc. Why that's the church 1 belong to. Driver you niay pass on." A fow woolis ugo I .said Medicine Hat hn�l more �torps than Leth-bridgv, but 1 netiioclod to point o\t\ that none of them wero as large or commodious, or carried as larg'o a stock as those in thiS city. I question whether any place \n the west has as well stocked and good ap -poaring business places as those to bu found in Lethbridge. A doctor, not a thousand miles fi-om LotfabridgB wired to a coroner. "Ohild.difld hero today without n� assistance." Did the doctor make this admission or was it -fn iirror of the telegraph company. In the meantime the contents wiU. furnish ' shot for Mary Baker Eiddy's campaign. Rev. Chas. McKillop is a Sherlock Holmes. In a hotel in London. Eng, he went up and spoke to a man and without the least hesitation said: "You're from (Jeorgio, are you not?" and the man was dumb founded and replied, "yes! Why bow-could you tell." It was the man's A citiaen of l^'thbridgv, while travelling in one of the Orow tiain.s the other night, was invciglwl into a game of cards with threo ir.iii, who turned out to be sharks, piuc tising the methods pursut-d I j t.ho men on the C. and E. trains n tho north arjd exposed by the K.vx> Opener last week. The Lelhbridgcite wos asketl to take part in a game of pedro, which the sharpers called five up. The fellows were pretty smooth and when a remark was made about a pack of cards, they said they would gwt them from the "Newsy," though there was no on the train. Otte of them went into another conch un-i came back with a pack. Tho gam.s started and after a couple of haitds had been played one of the "ileocers: remarked that he had a good poker hand. So had the lcthbridge n>an aiHl he bet on it and won. The petl ro game started again and in a few minutes another good poker hand was in evidence. The fellows began to bet, and as the Lethbridg� man had four kings he put a hand in and put up a tenner. He was raised but didn't stay in, ns he became sii.s -;�iciouK. The hands wci-e oxposod and one of tho other players hold four noes and another four jacks. The game endt^d and the Leth -bridge man to,d the othor fellows that he had l)oen buncoed and they didn't deny it. A little later the brakeman on the train got "next" to the "sk'n" gante and he made the sharpers hand the money back to the lcthbridge man. The 8har{i frying-pan. The crowd roar�'ottgy-looiy.

The idea is to put up a modern rink, that could be u.sed for skating hockey and curling, on the Athletic (Grounds. It would be built so that ice would be assured most of the season.
