Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 23, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHMIMK. ALMOTA, WCDNCfDAY, ritetecby Pnotiuc Uvtai at Eouinl St..

Sam Hugiiee, a Conservative member of who declared that he preferred Hin- dus to AM ia Can- ada. The Liberal party has encour- aged the American settler to couie to i this country and now the Conjaecva- tives are try in y to moke out that these people, who are of our blood and language are not as good as Hindus. What do you think of that for political tactics? aiwd; but botti firea. old ONLY LIBERALS BARRED We are told by section of the Conservative press m tfcis province tuat it is liot t'ioe business of members of -the Alberta Government to participate ID tbe Dominion elec- tions. That is a new doctrine and is not even practiced by the cabinet ministers of Conservative govern- ments. The Opposition leader open- ed his campaign, away down on the Taber is now able to talk with the outside world, thaffka to the progres- sive policy of the Alberta govern- ment. If it had waited for the Bell Co. to act it.would have been isolat e4 for years. Isn't it about time the 13ell Tele- phone signs were taken down. They ought to be put on the scrap heap. Hon.

Rutherford, Cush- oriKiu of thc mark ing, Cross and Finlay, are criticized one of-tho curios and condemned in the I1" thc da-vs of thc American campaign in Alberta. Such is the in- the St. Louis Globe-Demo consistency of the Conservative prett. crat. there, was utter confusion in the circulating medium. Several col Mr. Rutherford and his colleagues citizens of Alberta. They have every bit as much right to participate in the campaign as the humblest e tor. Senator DeVeber is also taken r-o task for assisting Mr. Simmons. When, was a rule established that 'a Senator was not to opin- ions and exert his influence for" his party friends? If k such, an understand ing exists, it does not affect. Senatoi Lougheed, or Senator Perley, or Sen ator McKeen, who presided at the Borden meeting in Halifax. Prob- ably the Conservative press have ar- ranged the matter so that 4t is only to affect Senators professing ence to Liberal principles. It -looks very much like it and has all the ap- pearance of the Conservative defini- tion of a "square deal." A PROBLEM FOR THE CITIZENS Every man in Lethbridge who has a desire to see the young men j ana boys of this city developing into real men instead of into loafers and bums would do well to consider the words uttered by Superintendent Wilson at the Cricket Club smoker last Fri- day. His words on the moral value of good clean sport caaie with dou- ble force because of the fact of his position at the-head of the police di- vision and ot his having been always the patron of good sport. When he says that manhood is develop- ed by good sport and that, it is ruined by loafing around barrooms and such places he knows what he is talking about. And when he ad- vises the city to provide a place for the recreation, of the men and boys so as to keep them from these places tHat destroy their manhood, sensible people will take- heed to his words. Lethbridge has been fairly well sup- plied with recreation grounds and the large crowds that play lacrosse, foot ball and baseball on the square ev- ery summer evening show that This particular place is appreciated. But that place will not long be available for such sports as it is in the best interests of the city to give it. more of a parklike appearance. Other plac es must be provided and -Mayor Hen- derson's proposition that the city should acquire the base- .ball park, thc fair ground.' thc lake at the east end of the city seems a feasible solution for the problem of providing places for out- door sports. One of the. great reasons why sports in summer are not engaged in by young men is that during the win ter they pet out of training and loso their interests in strenuous sports hy loafing arounrl places that good for them in no respect. overcome this difficulty and provide good recre- ation throughout the winter .f. C. A. It is doubtful if there is another city of its size in Canada that has as mam- young men with- out homes. Tt is the duly of the as a municipality ot" its bus- inessmen as employers of these young men, and of thc citizen body gener- to provide means by which these young men may make the most of themselves and attnin the highest po-, Rible standard of manhood and citi- zenship. Xo organization yet has done so much in this direction as thc V. M. C. A. The Young Men's Club of this city has tried to do the work cf a V.M.C.A. hut its space and its means have limited. A well organized V.M.C.A. with a building and financial backing would do more to the problem of clean sport and keeping the young mTVj from undesirable haunts than any other scheme. onies had authorized coins of differ ent denominations, and, besides these there were English, pence, shillings crowns, and- half crowns. Frenc coins, both from Canada and Europe Spanish coins of half a dozen denom- inations, especially reals and doub- loons; Mexican coins, in Pennsylv.on ia Dutch and German pieces and along the coast Portugese and even Italian money was often seen, brought in by seamen. The, United States mint was established in 1791, and the United States coinage became, of course, the legal tender. The mixed coinage, however, was not at once displaced, but continued in local use, so that it became necessary for mer- chants in keeping accounts to desig- nate that a bill was to be paid in UmtedStates currency, or if in mis- cellaneous coins, they were received at a discount. So, before the sum total of the bills the merchant was accustomed to write the letter Not many years now re- main to me. The suows of winter have taken the place of spring but, however I may show the ravages of my heart still remains young aud I feel that I have as much strength as over for the I .Svnicc of my country. Ill I spite of my sixty years, of i which so much has been spent i iu the service of k the Domin- i ion, I am sure that some, time i remains for me yet to oppose i thoiie sinister combinations, and especially have I a tooth for the unholy alliance be- tween the Castors and the Conservatives. Our greatest work lor the advancement fcauada is thtj -construction of the Grand Trunk Pacific, which so iriuch for our country's future, and with which I hope my name will be chiefly associated. The more we know about this line the the more we see its advantag- es to Canada. In fact, its-ad- vantages are alread being, felt, us f-vea now it is taking its part in the transporta- tion of the western wheat crop Within two years we shall see this lini! running from Monctou to Winnipeg, open- i ing up traffic to new empires of the north, where geuera- c tions yet will be.able i to settle aud make their, liv- r lihood.
