Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 17, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta September 17, 1013 THE IRANBROOK IS COMING STRONG Cranbrook is coming to the Dry 'Burning Congress, and "they are going -make themselvea traard. At a re- meeting of the Board of Trade ittiiBre It was decided to get up an auto- )i mobile party with 20 machines to '.jtlriyo' from Cranbrooh: to the eipoti- i; tlpn to-rcharter a special train )to2oarry tho remainder of tlio deloga- aik the city council to arrange a civic holiday 90 that iiilght take advantage ot tbe ipecial the CongresE for a day, and kflked that everyone.come to a The .Cranbrootc building 'will be 011 e of the .features of the Con- gress apd -their exhibit will be differ- anything in that line ever seen ctty. Cranbrook bolieves tbat the Congreas is going to offer them a good opportunity to make their city known to the world and they in-tend make the-most of It. STAFFORDVILLE WANTS THE CARS A'HAIF MILE EXTENSION WOULD SERVE MANY AND INCREASE REVENUE Editor Lethbridge Herald: The ;Lethbridge Municipal railway fliup now runs north along 13th St., fis far as 9th Avenue North, which have continued west along: half mile or as fur as- 12th St; 'Street.) This would have enabled Che Stafford to go and come on tho cars. .Now, an i! is, they have to walk half a mile before getting' a ear. As It is only three-quarters oE a mile to1-the overhead bridge, oil 9th St. thn people of Stafford prefer walking tho three-quarters of a mile than walk laU a mile to catch a car. Most of-the-miners working at No.- und No. 3 reside at Stafford and jrnost of their financial business has to be transacted in Lethbridge, such. ,4s mo-aey orders, pay checks, etc.. ['which compels them to go to the city. Now if the street cars were running in 9th avenue north, as far as the G apur, then tho street railway department would double the business fjBone in North Lethbridge. As the ratepayers of Stafford sent In a petition once, salting for the cars to nvn on 9th avenue north, and on to street north; but as they were un- iware of the city limits at that time ind now the city limla esend as far along 9th Ave. north, as King .treeU.'CXtth St.) 'they see no reason i-hy the street car line couldn't be from .the comer vjf 13th .treet and 9th avenue north, to King treet or No. (j spur. The above mentioned petition was urneii down on the grounds that the tafford people had no say in the ireet car extensions, but. it may be ;rue that they haven't any say, but as he majority of the Stafford people '.re also ratepayers of the city of Leth- ridgo and also have votes on the uiiniclpal elections, but still perhaps "ley have no say yet. .What we want Is transportation and hat the street railway wants is a venue and this is one step towards ,e transportation and one towards he revenue for the Lethbridge Mnni- railway. It seems aome people are naturally selfish that they rather see the reet railway lose motley tlmn to ex- the line to Stafford to accom- date the villages which would bring ti a 'large revenue from that district. Before the C. P. R. machine shops, ml elevators, flour, mills, sash and _oor factories and other industries :hal have been' established in recent -ours, it was the miners that tho hole city had to depend on-and a A.
