Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 13, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta liMBRlUGaERALfi S'MPSON ft BUCHANAN ' Publishers E. ftfJtPSON W. A. BUOHASAS SUBSCRIPTION: n Advaacc 1.50 a year O nerwiia - , iSOO a year ADVERTISINO: Per Month - 1.00 Per Inch IN NEW QUARTERS. The Herald is movii* �c�in. The growth of our businass in &U departments necossKates the occupation of larger attd more com mod -ious quarters, and next week, if all goes well, this paper will be issued from the new ofDce just erected for Kt on Round Street, next to Howard Case fc.Co.'a. by Hide and Wake-ley. This building will supply us with the room wo require for (ar growing business. The Herald is just nine month's old, but we can, say, without fear of people looking upon us as egotistical, that no paper in sudi a .short tinic.has won the favor and good' will of the public so quickly as the Herald. Our subscription Mst has increased rapidly and mew readers are being added every day. It is cosy enough to discern that we have a heavy advertising patron*;^, citic to the fact that the Herald is a popular pai>er. The advertisers realize" they arc placing store news in every honic, not only in the city but in the country as well, when tUey uso Herald space. To talk a little .more "shop," wo can refer with pride to the rapid development of our job department. Business in this line has increased every month, but even mone important than that, is the fact �hat those who have patronized us ha\-e l-xsen delighted with the fine work we have turned out. In our new quarters wo will be Ijettcr able than ever to picase our customers. Come around and make us a ..all. Tlie Herald is alway.s glad to tnooX. its friends. cur OUT CORRUPTION. Corruption and crookcdnft�t in politics invariably redounds tti the complete injury of the party ;hat practices it. Take Ontario for instance. Tiie L.ibwal-. lut bo.\ stufTing and other election evils. However, it thought it could strengthen itself, when it nad a small majority by resorting to 'iirtj-tactics. It won a few scats for a time but when the disclosures came llie death knell of the party was sounded in the'province. Not oily vas the government smashed, Imt ridings, like West KIgin and N'orth Renfrew, that had been long in ilio Liberal fold, t\'crc so disgraced b.j' tlie methods that had been resorted to, that they turned down their former love with a thud and it will take a long time to win them back to Ll>)eralism. But Liberals throughput the province were disgusted also, and showed their disapproval of the methods the first opportunity that came. Alberta is a new province and it is to be hoped that neither party in this province will ever copy the tactics of the parties in Ontano. Crookedness never pays. Par better to lose an election than besmirch party name with sins that arc never forgotten. A riding won by unfair means, invariably turns about and punishes the sinners, by supporting the other party at the -next election. In political crimes, as others, "Be sure your sins will And you out." of Labor to decide whether thcra is a strike on here or not. It is up to Mr. Shcrinon to "mhko ijood" or take to tlvo tall timbor.s.

In fact the Herald understands iH-m men who ought to know that fields there can't be beaten in distitrt. i lie vhe We are not charging so much per line for what we are at>out to sny. but we believe the O. W. Kerr '!.� is entitled to a lot of praise from the people of Lethbridge. This company has brought more land-scck.>rs into this district this year than have been here in >vnrs. Lelhbridga's future depends a great deal on agricultural development and no iws-paper. W. J. Bryan is a fearless public man and the world could stand a lot more like him. At Chicago he read the Illinois State boss out of the party becauao he was a graftor. Toddy Roosevelt is strong but, he hasn't sailed into the grafters like Bryan. Win. Whyte, vice-president of the C.P.R. is'a sensible head. The order of railwa.v conductors met in Winnipeg the other day and he at-tcnde'e vent to his feelings on the horse.

He declares tiiat the practice is so general that fone place near the prison is known as 'The Stop for Refreshments." He also says deputy sherifi's have por -suadcd prisoners to spend nil their money at the bars by telling them that if they took money into the prison with them it would be taken away and they would never see it again. This is an astonishing de -velopmont.

The pror>erty is located at Taljcr, Alta., and consists of about 11,000 acres of land, underlaid, by a fifty -four inch vein of very valuable coiil. The proiiei^ty is said to be the fin -est domestic ami steam coal property in the vest. The deal is one of magnititdo and is of great import ance to . Western Canada inasmuch as the new company is prepared to siicnd a large amount of n�oney in developing the property, and expect to greatly increase the output of the mines. F. E. Kcnaston- the well known bankor awl manufacturer of Minneapolis, and O. A. Robertson of St. Paul who has large lumbering interests in Canada, are said to bo the principal factors in the ' deal. These two gentlemen are \voU and favorably known in Winnipeg and throughout the northwest, whcr they both hove very extensive business interests. B.
