Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 12, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta �r.^ii~Mi-tf;Miiitfii IBTHBRIIHiB HERALD KMnilfi CO^ LTD. A ft. AUSTIN, BIHtr mI M�m|cr. W. JOIPAN.

Wm. Pugsley in the, bye-election. Wonderful sucoesa and enthusiasm! The plague of lynxw that the east-era papers said had come upon Calgary and other Albarte ptfinte seems !to have extended eastward as ous was shot and anothn- captured alive iaihe heart of the city of Montreal. The Montceal Witness published several statemeniji made weeks and months ago by architects, contrac -tors and mechanics that the Quebec Bridge i^jiild collapse before it was flnlahed. ' The Government and the Company were warned. Them should be severe punishment, in store for those raaponsible for the terrible accident. St. Thomas, (Ont.) undoubtedly has the distinction of having the Most, novel labor Day parade ever held.

It is dilDcuH to see how the Conservative can really hope for an out- that the .several states and provin -ces devoted a great deal of money to the equipment of the libraries.

Of course, elections dollars �I��> this department and it are desperately uncertain; but there �� doubtful if any province in the is the general consideration that pominion can boast of half as good governments are hard to heat in � library as the one to b, found in times of prosperity and the special fact that Sir Vvilfrid Laurier's on Quebec does not seem to be loos-Icned, BO far, �� s ;ho Conservatives �ire concerned. At the same time, it is only natural to pxpect a decided accession of strength to Mr. Ilorden'* following.  The groat political divisions of Canada are: Quebec, 65 members. Ontario, 86 mam hers. The Prairie Provinces, a� Provinces, Parliament buildinns nt Toronto, hold JEvery branch of litoratui-o is wey rc-pKsonted. As fur back as 1867, when Ontario lli-st became a province the legislators had placed high value on a libcvry and votod flO.OOO towards the purchase of books and furnishings. As is well known, most of the �talc ond provincial libraries 'are stocked with books mostly of a [n-feronce character so that legisla -tors and others moy have at hand v^orks that will assist them in securing information on all the varied sub jects 'that creep into the discussions . lo-abors 35 meiu- The Maritime �laere.

If the Conservatives do well enough cost of the Ottawa to hold Sir Wilfrid down to 70, and carry Ontario by 36, the figures would be cut down to about 100 Liberals and 86 Conwrvotives. Of the thirty prairie scats, ten are wholly now, and many more espec -|ially the northernmost, are under Government influence. Under the circumstancee the Conservatives will make remarkat^lo gains if they divide the representation evenly. British Columlvia has two seats, to which the Yukon must be added, which simply fall to the winner. The Cbnser vative cause is looking up in the mountains, and the party is hbpeful we may give it the benefit oi the guess, and suppose that throe of the five contestable seats iura Coaaerva live. This means that the thirty eight Western seats will divide. Liberal twenty. Conservative eightoen. Or a total estimate of Liberals from 19U to 130; Conservatives from 94 to 104, or a liberal ma jorlty of from 15 to 35. A fJberal victory with a serious scaling down of tbe majority. This is, of course, the roughest postible estimate. Putting it in another way, Mr. Borden needs 113 votes to win. It Sir Wilfrid Laurkn-comes to the Ottawa with 75 votes, Mr. Borden must win 88 votes out of the remaining 194. If tlie Conservatives hold tho Lib4>ral!i down to 79, they still must win 83 seatw in Ontario and the Wust. Itoversing it THE BOSTON PUBLIC LIBRARY. Mr. Buchanan says the finest library he visited during his trip was the Boston Public library. It is housed in a magnificent building that cosit several million dollars ond on Ttm W. C. T. U. TiiB LARGER PATRtOTISi^. Our growing self-consciousness as Canadians has become very appaivnt in a greater e.tploHtt'tion of our magnificent country. Its potential gnat-ness, particularly i^s vast material resources, has liccome the wonderand envy of some old world centres that a fe^w years ago rogar(letuam, which is an exceptionally good showing considering that there wciv 560 competitors. The thrae are D. Mclnnus of Strathcona, who won also the Governor-Genera I's prize, and shot on the Palnia team lost week, S. S. Brown of Kdmowton, and Alex. Martin of Calgory. On Friday tbe Western Canada Baseball champions dcfeatiKl the Maroons of WinniiKg, the Northern-Copper champions 4-3. Works and Bushelman were the opposing pitch -ers. Bucs and Foster pla.ved third and centre for the Hat. Benny made throe of tlie hits .secured by the team The touring Medicine Hot team defeated ttegina 9-0 lost Thursday. its shelves are over 900,000 volumes hold up high ideals of patiriotism. The library is maintained by the (leople of Boston and ranks ne.vt to the Congressional library at Wash -ington. Mr. Buchanan gathered many ifleas an to the system of conducting libraries and he is confident that the Emerson, the grand old sage of Concord, onoe said: "We hesitate to use a word so much abused as patriotism, whose true sense is almost the revffse of the popular sense. We have no sympathy with that boyish Alberta Provincial library will in a egotism, hoarse with cheering for few years be one of the best in the dominion and a credit to the people of the province. ONTARIO IS FRIENDLY. "What is the atritmie of the Ontario people towards Wcsitern Canada?" Mr. Buchanan was asked. "Generally speaking c\tromel.v friendly, but I ran up against a few pessimistic |>oople. They doubted all Jobs vas pulled into the vat o( liO degrees .,pi^'Mbi^t,^:weat.ia bead ;flik aDd^'isaJlleailtf -bplpw the bubb^ ;, ''ling mrflj^. cqijiBing up^ allook , his mane Wd^vwom^ aeroas �trum that five continents might hear, how great are our "peculiar and legitimate advantages." It now devolves upon us in our experiment the stories about the great resources, j, ^^,i,,. demonetrate of the country and siocmed to l�',^),gj_ anxious to do a little knocking. That' ciass of Canadian is fast finding its way to the cemetery. There is a type {though thaterworks and sewerage systems ore farther advanced than Ontario cities were when tlvey were even 60 .vears old. If they only compare Al-4)erta with the Ontario of even 20 years ago, the cities of the' l,atter province would look as backward as some trading post in the north may be just now." A. O. Lucas, a former Lethbridgo crickotcr, is .still doing things for the Edmonton team, as the following clipping from the Bulletin would indicate: "Returning to Red Deer on the ITuesday afternoon tlxc team plajtjd a return match there. Priest and Bort-cnshaw, were again in splendid form with the Imt ond scoiwl 35 and 36 runs before both pla.ved on to their wicket olY Stephenson. Tlie innings closed for 109. Red Deer could make no stand against Lucas and Borten -shew and were dismissed for 29, Lucas taking 7 for 7. Chief of Police Chamlierluin of Vancouver has prohibttetl priae-fighting in that city. The paper^� of the city commend the action of the chief in putting a stop to these encounters. "Not gold, but only man. can make A people groat and strong: Men who for truth and honor's sake Stand fast and suffer long. Brave men who work while others sleep. Who dare while others fly- They build a nation's pillars deep And lift them to tbeeky." PEEL THE PINCH. TOO. "Is the oast suflering from a financial stringency?" "I should sny it was. Every per -son seems to delight in hunting up long and fierce adjectives to accompany their opinion of the banks. It is the case in the States, too. But the people seem to have money for they are travelling and having a good time just as though the banks had so much money that the.v hail to engage the store next door to pile it in." INTERESTED IN CROPS. Mr. Buchanan found people keenly interested in the crops. The gciieral impit�d for mixed farming. "I met a man in Toronto who wondered why we wore not able to produce butter and eggs, hogs, etc., enough to feed not only Alliorta, but British Columbia. "Why," 4>.e declared, "your people need never Worry about frosts, etc.. If they adopt mixed farming. If they lose in one branch thoy will make up in the other. There is a lot of sound sense in that view." Political prophets are proclaiming that "so Canada belongs the twen -tieth century," May there he given to the world by our young nation an object lesson of � national development along the lines of that truer patriotism, which means not only dying for our country in constant, daily service of the right kind. Every moral and religious organization that aims to lead its members up to higher plains of thinking and living is a factor in developing the higher, the larger patriotism. Wc are glad that in our day patriotism and militarism are not necessarily synonymous terras. We firmly beMeve in the statement of Presi dent Eliot, of Harvard, that "There is no need of bringing on wars in order to brecdh erocs. Civilized life affords pleirty of opportunities tor heroes, and for a better kind than war or any other savagery ever produced." Because of our adherwice to, and efforts to promulgate, those prjn -ciples, which wc believe go to the development of the boat in our country's life, the Union ean truthfully lay claim to l>eing a patriotic or -aniiiation of the highest type. "To 'minister to the bpst development of the land which is one's home, to seek its higheet advancement, to love with a love whjch sacrifices selfish interest to the larger interests of the common country-this is true pat -riotism-and every department of our work leads that way. Our department of peace and arbKration aims nt the ideal patriotism vhich {the poet foresaw wbeii he sang of "The Parliament of Man, the Fed-ration of the World." Same intereniipg information is imported by the railway map of the Dominion, recently issued by the Department of the Interiar. The first charter for a railway la Canada was obtained in 1633 for a line from the St. Lawrence to Lake Champlain, which was a|icnod in 1886. By 1855 th6re were 563 miles of railways in Coinada, ami in 1867, at the time of Confederation, tbe mileage vt^a about 2.000. The 4otal mileage now in operation is 31.3^3, representing n capital outlay ot $1,833,498,705. When Septcmlier-wheat reached a dollar, some of tbe farmers wired. in saying thut "a dollar in the hand is worth two in the bush, Si�ll ten thousand now." Tom Longboat, the Indian runner, easily defeated .lobn Morsh of Winnipeg on Saturdoy. Marsh recently fimked a race with Art, Burn of Calgary. Evidently knowing he was a dead one, he thought he would rather snuR out liehind a great one like Longboat than liehind a lesser light like Burn, FINAL BASEU.\LL STANDING.
