Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 13, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta MBRlDfla HERALD "H SAMPSON St BUCHANAN Publishers B. SIMMON W. A. BUCHANAN SUBSCRIPTION: n Advance   1.80  year O tverwlM  �2.00 a year of laibor to decide whether thoru in a strike on here or not.

The growth of our business in all departments necessitates the occupation of larger and more com mod  ious quarters, and next week, if oil goes well, this paper will be issued from the new office Just erected for it on Round Street, next to How ord Case & Co.'s, by Hick and Wake-Icy. This building will supply us with the room wo require for t ur growing business. The Herald is just nine month's old, but wo can soy, without fear of people looking upon us as egotistical, that no paper in such a short time,has won the favor and good will of the public so quickly as the Herald. Our subscription list has increased rapidly and .new readers are being added every day. It Is easy enough to discern that we have a heavy advertising patronage, due to the fact that the Herald is a popular pa|>er. The advertisers re nlizo" they are placing store news in every home, not only In the city but in the country as well, when they use Herald space. To talk a little more "shop." we can refer with pride to the rapid development of our Job department. Business in this line has increased every month, but even more important than that, is the fact that those who have patronized us have le n good scheme for the A.M. & I. to extend Us line to the Koo-tenay Lakes anil oi>en  a summer resort for Southern Alberts people there. Itaymond is losing n progressive and public spirited citizen by the re moval of A. 10. Moore. Ho was to the front in every movement for tho advancement of that town. Mark Cannon tells us the crops never were better around Stirling. In fact the Herald understands i'im men who ought to know that t'ie fields there can't be beaten in the district. We are not charging so much per line for what we are about to 9-ty. but we believe tho O. W. Kerr ''.> is entitled to a lot of praise from the people of Lethbrldgc. This company has brought more land-seekers Into this district this year than have been here in years. Ix-thbridgeVo future depends a great dual on agricultural development and no h on-cent is helping in the advancement to a greater extent than the 'verr people. They have lands to sell and are bringing in people by the car load to see this country nnd us a result the Ix�thbridge district is being splendidly advertised. The Chicago Tribune made a ;;r.;at reputation for itself last week. One of its reporters traced Stenslaud. the defaulting- bank president to Morocco ami succeeded in having him captured. The feat cost the Tribune wns flapping Its fins and winking Us eye, and grinning all over Us countenance at tho Macleod editor. Charles Fisher Hurris hasn't I iron cross examining witnesses, the greater part of his life without l>eing nble to "get next" quick. So he knew In minute that the gay little '.rout had pulled in his steel rod and was now gloating over Its capture. Naturally C. F, was mad ami he' Ir'.ed to give vent to his feelings on the horse.

" 'What I mean, mum,' the cook explained. 'Is that some folks like their birds stale.' " 'The tail'?' repeated the mistress more puzzled than ever. "And then, In order not to npp-?nr 'ignorant in the cook's eyes, s!-'e smiled brightly, and said: " 'Prepare the birds, please, wl'h the eyes nnd tails both.' " Will the Macleod copy tin? above.

They do some curious things in the t'ntled States, one of them Ivlng referred to by no less serious a paper than the New York Christian Advocate, and probably the subject will be fully set forth in its own words: "Tho Head Kce|>cr, George W. ,Os-borne, of tho New Jersey State Pns- i on, has notified shorifis all over the I state that unless their prisoners are I delivered at the prison sol>er they ' will net be received. Osborne states that not a few sheriffs take thi the the party ".hat Corruption and politics invariably complete Injury of practices R. Take Ontario for instance. The Liberal party was In p-jwor there for a quarter of a century and mig*it have been in power yet. If it had kept away from bribery. ballot box stuffing and other election evils. However, It thought it could strengthen itself, when it nad a small majority by resorting to tiny luetics. It won a few seats for a time but when the disclosures came ilie death knell of the party was sounded in the*province. Not orly vas the government smashed, but ridings, like West Klgin ami North Renfrew, that had been long in ilie Liberal fold, were so disgraced by tlic methods that had been resorted to, that they turned down their former love with u thud and it w'.ll take a long time to win them back to Liberalism. But Liberals throughout the province were disgusted also, ami showed their disapproval of the methods the first opportunity that came. Alberta is a new province and it is to bo hoped that neither party in this province will ever copy tho tactics of the parties in Ontario. Crookedness never pays. Far Iwtter to lose an election than besmirch a party name with sins that are 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 find you out." paper. W. .). Mrynn Is a fearless public man and the world could stand a lot more like him.

Men of supposed financial ability and foresight seem to bo "easy murks" for the "smooth chap." A case in point is an insurance company recently organised with a representative lot, of men on its directorate but with what we might term a "slick gent," as the manager. This man if his career had 'teas looked up, would havo been found to l>e a business failure, a dead laiat und a fleecer from/ Fleocorvllle. Ho was smooth and caught the sup  posedly wise men. He was given a big salary, though ho knows no more about Insurance than a baby. The directors will And this out soon but in tho meantime they tao examples of tho "sucker tribe.'' Tho "suckor tribo" has been peculiar to mining stocks, farms on mo'in  tain peaks, etc, but this is tho flrst tiino they havo been caught In insurance schemes. Lethbridge fair is money ah-viil. That Is good news ami is more lYin the fntirs in much larger places in Al!>erta can say. The Alberta government -di.vi'd see that the provincial inspector of mines is located In the centre->f the mining region of the province and not at Kdmonton as at present. If the Liberal government had located W. T. M. Preston as Canadian trade agent in Silieria, a lot of people would have boon better satisfied. Why is it a town is being built up on the American side of the border and none at Coutts? We are told the CamwKan ranchers gvt their supplies at Sweet Grass simply lie-causo there isn't a store at Coutts. Somebody needs to wuke up; if this it- the case. Coutts ought to be alio to supply the ranchers and Loth  bridge should have the trudo of Coutt's stores. The Postmaster General boasts that tho department will show a surplus of over a million. He should come out vest at once and spend a good deal of this amount putting tho postal service in this country- into l>etter snapofBut near the prison is known as '"The Last Stop for Refreshments." He also says deputy sheriffs have per  suaded prisoners to s|iend all their money at the bars by telling them that If they took money into the prison with them It woukl t� taken away and they would never see it nguin. This is an astonishing de -vclopment. It would surprise us more if we had not seen many prisoners on their wuy to Jail in differ- ; ent Slates of the 1'nion.
