Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 26, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta iBRALD Hi. saBSCIUPTtON: . wa.OOmymt ADVCRTISINO: 1.00 Far Inch rndeslrale Settliirs. h. i. norden. in bis traveUi Itiraiih OnUrio, Iim liem HljoUins iamicrmtlon policy of the Uberal >^Mir�w�w��t *� TOurce Utrough V*^>i�rMelCCiUMay ia Wertem Canada?"

As for 'tlM Qalieiaas, it can be claimed for them,' tlmt they have made axceUent citiaaas./.They have conformed to ; our customs, adopted our knethoda of j^famaing, acquired as rapidly as pos-alMa.a knowledge" of our language :aiul endeavoned in every way to become good Canadians. They are ^pros^ous. "ir They farm carefully and well and deserve to rank as very desirable and valuable cftiaens. It might.'be well for Mr. Borden .^a re-spaat his attacks on the Oaiicians ;and Jtoukhobors while in the west. iiHsarill then learn Just, how much the 'patqito consider these two races "un-disiribW Gitiaeas.'^ district courts, enabling a more expeditious and inexpensive conduct of Utigation. Or Is Mr. McCarth}- roeroly possess ed of that inborn Conaervative Idea that the administration .e( alTairs must be in the hands of hl imrty or the country will go to rutn>? Mr. McCarthy with his pietensionsi as a statesman' and a great friend of the people, might enlighten the cit-taens of Alberta in regard to this matter. It Was Our Mistake. The Herald regrets that it did tho Edmonton Bulletin and its special correspondent, ,Tohn Blue, an inj'is-tioe in Inst week's issue. Wo said The liulletin had given, Lethbridgc the "go-by" in its articles on tho crops in the south. This we And is far from actual facts. Mr. Blue gave crops in this district a splendid write up. Nothing better could be asked for.' Not only did he enthusa over our firrains but he contributed a well written article on the. wanderful niinr ing development that is taking plarc here. Mr. Blue, we.take it all back and express a thousand regrets for making you the butt of our criticism. OUR POINT OF VIEW The Medicine Hat News deeorves 9lst yoH 'to your bed if you get lost or are top tired to walk, wink at the pretty girls you see on tho streets, take a chance at our city lots if you want to and have the priiv. but don'-t blow out the gas. rtev. O. W. Kerby, Methodist minister, Calgary, made a call on the Pope while in Rome and not a murmur iii protest has been heard from Or. Sproulc, ople know he is sli'l in league wiih Hon. O. Foster, O. W. Fowler, the thanks of the press and people of l^. H. Bennett and other Tory lights Ali)erta for its exeept'iohally complete account of tho proc>>edingn of the Union of Alberta Municipalities-It was another evidence of the fact ^hat the Rat has moi�.than natural gas to he proud of: it has a newspaper that occupies a front placo in western journalism. Tile new Liberal loader in Ontario is an able man. It is a question if he is equalled in brilliancy and talents by any man on cither side in the Ontario legislature but he is curs ed with one weakness, which if he can only overcome, will ensure him a place at an early date as Prime Minister of Ontario. The Liberals have accepted him for "better or for worse" and it rests solely with him whether he turns out good or not. What ore Alberta farmers looking "down in the mouth" about? The yield of oats may^ not be up to the average, but think of Ontario, where the farmer is getting eighteen lone bushels to the acra. Think of it again and then cheer up. Tl�e trouble with tlie Aliierta farmer is that he is dissatisfied if he does not got fifty bushels of wheat and one hundrffl bushels of oats to the sere. W. A. I^wis, the Liberal candidate tor the local house .in Brockville, Ont., is a .cousin of Lewis, Tory M. P. for West Huron and tho late Br. Lewis, Tory M.P.P. for Dufferih, Ont. The Lewi's family politics got badly shaken up at some time in its family history. Fortunately the Brockville follow came out at the right place in shuffle. who were mixe insuranoe scandals. The {leoplo will And i-t hard to credit his I'spousnl of tho po-litieal purity pinnk. Ift him get rid of thM3 man like Laurier cleaned the decks of his ship and the jiooplo may take mora slock in his professions. Hcinclior it is now Hon. Dr. Huth-erfonl. On tho same afternoon the cornei* stones of a new Y.M.C.A. and of the offices of the Colgary Brewery were laid. Nothing like keeping things even. Queries for Mr. McCarthy. f.

The Alberta government is the only one in Canada that possesses a government tclepnono system. The Ailiertji papers that are boosting Mr. Borden's government ownership plank, arc too blooming narrow to give credit to the "Alberta government as the pioneer in this respect in the entire rDominion. But the great mass of people are grateful and will not forget to cast their baU lots for the Rutherford government when tho opportunity dITers. UaionofAlbMtft Mwaieipdilfet. On Tuesday and Wednesday of last week about thirty-licleffates represent ing tilt- various rmunicipatitics ' of Alberta a.ssonibled in Mciliciuc Hat to discuss muninlpal matters in tlicir tliirti nnnua^ convention. The ddc-g�t(>s representing Lethbridgc were AUI. Oliver, Aid. Cunningham, and VMy KngincervArnold. In nfjcning the meeting Pres. Mich-oner, K.\-nmyor-of lied Peer, ivsmark-e�i that the association had a w^ide fioUl including many subjects that tlw capitaljst anil private corporation would rather have left untouch-e�l. Among other matters that he ho|ied tho convention would - discuss, were the management of hospitals, tho bonusing of industries and the sale of debentures, and he HVg-gcstcft that the government guaran. toe niunici|ial debentures. Mayor Ooufrlns of Medicine Hat wwl corned the delegates to �tlio city in a characteristic speech, in which he made a striking comparison of tho size of Canada ami the Unitcil States lie said that if North America were divitkid and hinged at tho 49th parallel nnd if the Canadian half were turned ovor on the southern half, it would cover it up, nml monoover, keep out of sight tho Ciult of Mexico, all, of Central America, the West India Islands nnd the Cnrrilwon Sea. Tlw matter of alllllation with the Canadian Union of Municipalities was di8cu.s.�' the Canadian Cconvcntion in 190S. Tlw report of Hhe CommHtee on llosolirtions  reiterated some of the recommendations to the Alberta government and added others. Tne recommendations mode were: 1. Maintaining hospitals as municipal institutions and defining the powers and niodo of elections of the govern ii>g bonral by-laws provision should be maik; that the sentence might be made imposing some work or labor on the prisoner. 5. That a commission should be appointed by the Provincial. Government to make a thorough examination and ro|K>rt upon the question of municipal assessment and taxation. 0. That the Local Government ho requested to enact legislation requir- in the.i.sT'-lTSrtj country there is n utnety |wr cent crop, f'or ,a citiwm of Calgary to name Lethbridge us the only place suffering from the storm is a stab that is as mean us it is unexpected and undeserved. Li>tbbridge has the brightest future of any place in AlbeKa-today. � Remember to tell every stranger that the banner grain yleld^ in all Alberta this year vos in the Lethbridge district. Tho Calgary Herald had a big head ing on the front page the other day "Fowler Insane" and immediately every Liberal decided they knew the paHlcular Fowior. Mr. Borden says he will give the lands back to the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan if he is returned to power. It might be well if ho asked Premier RobUn and Premksr McBride, who are to tour with him, to express their vievti on this matter.

L, Bordoti nc.\t Wednesday. The study of civics is very important to those budding into citizenship and cnta better lje studied from hearing the leading citizens of the nation than by studying musty histories. Tho Winnipeg Trjbunc publishes "Ten Line Talks" with prominent and other people. Tho otlicr day titcrc appearctl the following paragraph: Mr. McNaughton, Calgary-"Alberta seems to be in a very promising condition. It is true that we had snow In Lethbridge but the report which I heard thnt we had twelvo degrees of frost is a gross exaggera^-tion. What fro�t vc had pas.sed south of Calgar>- ami did not do much damage. Altogether out there a-o expect a two-third crop." The Herald does not know who this Mr. McNaughton is but it docs know thai his knowledge of the storm in question is very limited or else ho is a knocker. He doos> aot know that snow started to.^fall in Calgary and north of it soVeral hours before it started in Lethbridge. Ho does noti know that seuuur frcsts. werti felt north of Calgary than were thi� .^r^ius'thoiiof, to be felt south of that city.

TOia Gopveiiitioa also desires to add;,t|uit some legisla' tion should be adapted to any irrigation wrorks already-constructed and which later come wkhin the limits of a municipality orgM^lc^ later on." A most intereiitiiig disvussibn rfol lowed the introdiKtion of arrBSolu ^ion memorializing J>eur,.imlndo^ tke mooting that a aimilar resolution had boon passed last year.

Councillor Stewnaeo. of Red .Beer, thought there ahould be some motrain Ing influcBoo.exercised over councils. If municipaliUes vere capable of man aging their own business affairs, why he asked, were their borrowing pow-era limited. Mr. Cunningham, of Lethbridge, did not desire to see the Oovernraeat exercise any power In the matter. The right to exempt was of great benefit to municipalities. Four years ago the Lethbridge Council - had dcclfkid to exempt for fifteen j-ears any in-ilustry using tho products of the soil. TMs had brought into tRe city two flour mlllSi|;four elevatora, and a malting plaat. which, under other clr cumstances might lun'e located at some outside |>oio:t. He did not.

But it is very Bcldom that our friends in tho distance e%'cn send a postage stamp for a reply. There is no objection to the office becoming an information bureau for those to call in for their information, but those demanding the work of a aecn�tar.v should communicate with the advertising manager instead of the editor.
