Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 1, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta j. OM f w, delivered Daily, rix Booth Daily, detiwta B4Othm Kansas City, Missouri. The clt) ranks filth in the list of manufactur- ing cities o! the United States. One year ago there were 256 saloons in this county, 300 gambling deus and about 60 of social evil Today there ir not a saloon, no opei gambling den, nor. a house. It is the largest city in th world without these dens of vice, a. i as we have now existed about twelv months without them, it affords living example of the fact that a larg city can grow and prosper without such evils. At the commencement of the son t st a large number of our. people thought it svould ruin business iestro'y our prosperity, but it btinmlttted business in all lines. Our population has increased at a greater rate than ever before." The deposits of the banks have gained by one and a half million dol.' turs. Tlnv merchant on our streets have j had to 'empoly additional elerks. The attendant in our public schools has increased largely, and we have had to employ eighteen addi- tional teachers.

The Indians will soon be informed by mis chievious whites that industrial schools are only jails, to -which white children are' only sent by the courts for wrong doing. This would start a Qretty row am- ong the Indians, and it might end as far as educational hopes are concern- ed. It is moreover argued that chil- dren dismissed from the "reformatory could, if It were known as an indus- trial school, pose as a student train- ed at the real industrial schools, and here again confusion would arise. The matter certainly deserves re-consider- If the institution were called a Pro- tectory, as such places are some- times called in the States and Eng- land, or merely "Institute" preceded by the name of the town in which it is as Blahksville Instt- arguments against either Franklin county is the birthplace of the "ilissouri as those persons who desire to give It .a more aristocratic name have christened the Of corncob pipes during the year boys and girls of from twelve to six- teen years of age, who prior to the c'osing of the saloons were compel.

The juven- ile court, which has the care de_s pzndent, "children, had but two ap- plications in the past eight months, j while prior to the closing of the joints from eight to eighty .eight children required aid and asistance each month.

Blackberry time, good folks, .is "A high f co pie sometimes resent lanterti-slides as an insult to their intelligence. For example, P., struck by happy thought he had often used in his Sunday School class in Montreal, took a magic lantern into Saskatche wan to confront the Scott Govern ment with Grit wickedness. Where- upon the Grit newspapers stirred up strife by calling it Ames' Peep Show, and thereafter all the pictures of stol en timber areas and bogus tenders were of no avail. The lantern-slides maddened the electors, but not the way Ames, M. P., intended. They helped to make Scott's majority twice what it was before."

What Lethbridge badly needs at} the present -time i.s a large public hall.

Today the doors of the jaila swing idly upon their hinges and we have no use for those we have.
