Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 20, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta ki'HBRlUita hmALD S'MPSON & BUCHANAN Publishers t & antraos W. A. BUCHANAN SCJBSCRIPTION: n Advauoe - 91.50 a year O .herwlse  92.00 a year ADVERTISING. Per Month  91.00 Per Inch oituinfttod front the liiotith or1 fter says typhoid Is epidemic In tho south. Well, Lcth-brldge is in the south and there is not a single case here. Lcthbridge is tho healthiest spot In -the entire west. Lethbrklge'.s kick nliout the crop reports bore fruit mighty quickly. This week's C.l'.It. crop bulletin mentions Ijethbridgv for the first time in several months. The sensation of the week-�tho crop report. W. A. Hamilton suved the Atbcrta government from instant dismissal. Had he not admit teil being one of Lethbridgc has a chance to figure In a big baseball league m xt yenr A proposition Is being ui*�d by j i.'ulgary and Kdmonton to form r.n all t'nnudlan league to take in llu> three towns inentioneil and three of the following towns: Brandon, .Saskatoon, Iteginn. Medicine Hat, Moose .taw, ami Lethhridge. They point out that though Calgary anil Edmonton have been playing la -I ween themselves for the most part of the season both towns have been supporting teams costing as much or inoro than the northern Copper county league. Tho success of this league depends entirely on Winnipeg entering it. The cost of entering a league of this proportion would be consider -able, but If Lcthbridge iv ild place a strong team in tho field there is hardly any doubt but that the citizens would give liberal support. There would be plenty of matches all summer and that is what tho people want. Uut no, Mr. Cushlng, permitted tho crop reporters, some of the local Mr. Itobertson to travel with tho Conservative leaders would haw not Yost of the ordinary members. and now the Opposition leader cries "A political trick."' MR. SHERMAN'S CHARGE. It is almost three weeks since Frank II. Sherman startled Loth -bridge with the statement that ho could prove the explosions in the North Ward were instigated by detectives in the employ of tho Coal Company. That was a serious charge to prefer and If proved would injure the company in the eyes of the public slept a minute until the Wlmonton government bad been hoisted out of power, lock, stock and Imrivl. Lethhrldgu seems to lack a tu.-*te for refined musicui and literary entertainments. Recently the ISpworth League of Wesley Church has brought talented artists to the city but the citizens havo patronized tho entertainments very slimly. Sui  there are enough people In lx�tn-briilge, with a taste for high class musical and literary efforts, to encourage an organization like the Kp-worth Lengue in bringing talent of The position of the president of ! ,h" c',l",r" of Hr.

Tho City Council very properly paid heed to Mr. Sherman's Mate-ment and oflered to prosecute the de McCoy and I'nderhill and Mr. .lolly to this city. We understand tho League may bring the celebrated Westminster Abbey choir hen^ this fall nnd it is to Werato from Medicine Hat. The intention Is to do a general passenger and freighting business up and down tho river, ami with tho a-mount of settlement which Is now going on, the time seems rl|>o for a proposition of this nature. With the completion of tho Irrigation scheme which the Kngllsh syndicate Is undertaking just south of the city. II is hardly probable that one vessel j will lie able to handle ,the tratio and a brisk business will undoubtedly spring up in tho near future which will necessitate several steamers l.e-ing placed on the Saskatchewan .it this point. Two cities such as Meti-clne Hat and Lcthbridge should furnish enough excursions to keep a boat quite busy in tho early summer before the grain season starts. The company is capitalized at $50- i 1000, of which Sl.1,000 is already i REV. C. McKlLLOP HACK. Relates an Amusing Incident Widen Occurred at, Moose Jaw. Rev. Chas. McKillop returned from I he Old Country on Tuesday. He had a most enjoyable trip. While in the city he reluted several amusing incidents of his voyage, but the ion mot of nil, happened at Moose daw. Mr. McKillop travelled to Montreal with a train load of cattle . At Moose .law the CP.It. was not going to unload the cattle to water ami feed them, but Mr. McKillop |>erslsted that this should be done and succeeded In gaining his point.

It is now up to Mr. Sherman t i substantiate his charge. If he ,'ai's to do so. he must expect the Jiejple to judge him as a man whose purpose is to excite animosity to the coal company by making reckless ami imaginery charges.

Why? lWause the\ know I.cth-hridgv is going to l>o a big centre und investments here will reap returns. Likely Sir Thomas Slmughnessy is postpoiAng his visit here until he can make a triumphant entry Into the city over the new high level bridge. The Provincial IX'partment of Agriculture should not issue crop reports until it is certain it has -or rectfacts4and figures. No wonder tint ridiculous statistics it gave of th acreage and crop in the Lethbrid district aroused indignation. False impressions, which this report presented, would do inestimable damage to this district-a district where gruin growing has been wonderfully advancing during tho imst year, f the report, wtiicn has boon scattered broadcast. The reports of tho DepM>tmant o' Agriculture should 1k> reliable, to that land seekers can gather nccur -ate information about the country hut if tho ivcent bulletin is a sample the reports uro worthless. What the Department should do is to en- | gage a competent man in every district to prepare the.;o reports. Pay him for his trouble, so that he will take pains to gather tho corivct data. It is impossible to expect lo get capable men to send in reliaole reports for each township in a district, but it is possible to uscc.rt.iln all tho information desired by engaging a man, at a mileage or |>ei diem allowance. A few politicians who seem to employ their minds to no other pur  pose, than looking for chances to criticise tho Provincial government, attempted to make out that the report in regard to the Lothbridgo district, had been Issued with tho sole object in view of injuring South ern Alberta in ordor to boom, the north.

Dodsworth writes the Calgary Herald and sides with Conservative leader Robertson in saying that the Legislator's trip wus a political dodge. Now. if the Herald would enlighten the public us to who tills Mr. Podsworlh is, his charge might receive a few second's consideration anyway. We have an idea that .1. .1.

Supt. ltrownloe looked up. He know Mr. McKillop and immediately asked tho reason ol his appearance on the scene with tho roadmaster as his prisoner. Mr. MvKillop told him all about it end the Sujierintendent was so convu''ted that he fell oil his chnir. As soon as he arose, he said to tho Itoad master. "Do you know the man who hail you by the collar is a parson." Hut the roadmaster would n't believe it. Mr. McKillop gulncd his point, however, for the superintendent ir dcrcd the roadmaster to procure six men and load the cattle in nil haste. WILSON' OOT TWO YEARS.

From tho evidence it appeared that tho homesteader applied ing obtained the sum of 115 by falsit for money to pay for a homestead to his daughter, who was a domestic servant in tho town. The girl went for tho money lo her mistress, who in turn consulted her husband, with the result that the matter was Inquired Into, und it was discovered that the accused hud represented that the homestead would cost which tho homesteader paid. The accused was found guilty. Mr. Harris, who defended, suggested that the interests of Justice would lie sut is fled by the infliction of a fine. The chief JustXce said ho did not think so at all. Such offences us this were not to be tolerated in western Cnnudu. where intending settlers hud to rely very largely on the integrity of tho ofllcluls with whom they had to deal.
