Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 26, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta CO�LTD. st J* toftrlwtt. SUBSCRIPTION: 6*  ... 1.80 a year 1m 9.00  year district courts. enabling a more expeditious and inexpensive conduct of litigation, Or Is Mr, McCarthy metvly possess ed ot that Inborn Conservative idea that the administration of affairs must bo in the hands of his parly or the country will go to ruin.? Mr. McCarthy with his pretensions* as a statesman and a great friend of the people, might enlighten tne ell* icons of Albert a in regard to thin mutter. ADVERTISING: tenth - ti.00 Per Inch , tade�lrale Settlers. JpMrMl. L. Rorden, In his travels through Ontario, has been Mbelilng '�;;the immigration policy of the Liberal i'tovwrninent as the sourco through "which: Canada has been peopled with $~*n undesirable class of settlers, particularly Mentioning the Onlicians i�.and Doukhobors. Probably the east .'''em electora listened sorlously to the criticisms'of the Conservative leader i but the question the western man Is asking today is "Will he talk the "eut his attacks on the Oalicians and Doukhobors while in the west. He will then learn just, how much the people consider these two races "undesirable citizens." Tt Was Our Mistake. The Herald regrets that R did the Edmonton UullcUn and its special correspondent, John ltluc, an InJ'is tlcc in lust week's issue. Wo .onid The llulletin had given Lethbrldge the "go-by" in Hs articles on the crops in the south. This we find Is far from actual facts. Mr. Dluc gave crops in this district a splendid write up. Nothing better could be asked fur.- Not only did ho enthuse over our grains but he contributed a well written article on the wonderful mining development that is taking plare here. Mr. Hluc, we take it all back and express a thousand regrets for making you the butt of our criticism. Mm you .m your boil if you get lost or arc too tired to walk, wink at the pretty girls you see on the streets, take n chance at our city lots if you want to nntl have the price, but don't, blow out the gns. Rev. O, \V. Kerby, Methodist minister, Cnlgnry, made a call on the Pope while In Home and not a niur-mur In protest hns been heard from Dr. Sproulo, the Orange Tory lender, but when Sir Wilfrid l-atnlor pnid a visit to IIin Holiness tho Dr. w0nt into n rage, it's wumlortul how thu Tory politicians try to inflame the' religious prejudice* of the twopto. There will never be n milled Cnnndu as long as men of the lyi�' "f Sproulo have a leading place In tho counsels of the Conservative party. The C.P.R. ought to run an excursion to the Uorden feast at Calgary in order that the |ieonle might have an opportunity of seeing Its legal re proscntntfwes, Senator Loughowl and It. II. llennctt, who as Is well-known to Conservative leaders, throw their hats I" the nir when Mr. Rorden makes tho announcement that he wants to put tho O-P-H- Telegraph Company out ot business and operate a national system in.ttentl. Oh that will lie Joyful nev-s to llemuMt and Loughood-wt� don't think. Mr. Rorden must remcmlier that the |ieoplc know he Is sll'l nieil like Ijnurier olonneil the decks of his ship and the people may take more stock In his professions.

The study of civics is very important to those budding into citizenship and enh better !*� studied from hearing the leading eilireiis of the nnllon than by studying musty histories. On Tuesday and Wednesday of Inst week about thirty delegates represent tug the various municipalities of At* bcrln assembled In Medicine lint to discuss municipal matters lu their third annual convention. The delegates representing Lethbrldge were Aid. Oliver, Aid. Cunningham, nnd City Knglncer Arnold. In opening the meeting Pres. Mich-oner, Kx-mnyor of Ileil Deer, remark ed that the association had a wide field Including many subjects that the capitalist and private corporation would rather have left untouch cd. Among other matters that lie ho|ied the convention would discuss, were the management of hospitals, tho honutring of industries nnd the sale of debentures, nnd he sag Rested that tho government guarantee municipal debentures. Mayor Cousins of Medicine Hat wot corned the ilelegates to the city In a characteristic speech, In which he made a striking comparison of the site of Canada nnd tin' I'nlteil States He salt! that If North America were divided and hinged at the lh par a I lei nnd if the Canadian half were turned over on the southern half, it would cover it. up. nnd moreover keep out of sight tlie tlnlf of Mexico all, of Central Americn. the West in ilia Islands and the Cnrrllwan Son. The ma tier of ufMlalloii with the Canadian I'nlon of Municipalities wus discussed fully iinil in view if Hie fact that the Canadian union nwvts in Medicine lint next year, it was decided to affiliate ut once so as to tni'renm> the interest of the municipalities all over Cunndit in the! eoiiunutittios of tho west.

Is It the prosecution of the lumber dealers? Were his ravings on behalf �f the people in the House of Com-mos merely fireworks and is he at - heart a friend of the lumber men ? Is he opposed to the policy of the " OepaHrnent ot Agriculture? Does ho think it was foolish for the govern-ment to establish creameries and pou) try fattening stations so that the farmer would be enabled to secure , better prices snd a ready market for the productions of his farm? Or does ho think that the engagement of a renowned dry farming export to -v enlighten the people on this partic-[-. ular side of agriculture was foolish?. Is it because the government pass *"'* ed a Mechanic's lieu law that pro-,j.l, tects the workingman and takes a little bus nois away from the legal ^profession that Mr. McCarthy is so f� full of';double-barrelled adjectives? %^fUf,hB opposotl' to the taxation ot ^l^osj^to'iasids and institutions for |he beueflt of education?

A most Interesting discussion followed the introduction of a resolution memorializing ' tho Government to prohibit the bonusing ot industries. The motion flnaUy was laid over. According to the report in tho Medicine Hs* Nows.-May-or Cameron of Daigary favored it stating that this would head off tho class of industries which ran from city to city seeing which would give the most. Mr. Fulmer, of Red -Door, reniindod fko mooting that a similar resolution had Isvn passed last year. Mayor Cousins instanced the ease of railways asking concessions which, if refused by all municipalities would result in favors being secured v^Hh-out those, bonuses having to tie paid. Ho referred to a case in which Calgary was forced into giving a bonus of fifty thousand dollars for railway Calgary Caplnred Ovampkmship Cup Last evening In the rotunda ot the Lethbrldge Hotel, Hon. Senator De-Veber president of the Alberta Ama-tour Lacrosse Association presented thn Legislature Cup, the trophy representing the lacrosse championship of Alberta to the Calgary team. In doing so. the president spoke briefly of the season's struggles and congratulated the winners on their triumph. To his remarks the Calgary fellows replied wHh three hearty cheers and a tiger. Calgary has the cup. They won it by twice, defeating the local team, after winning their own district, and there Is no team that Is more wot come to il since we cannot keep it ourselves. About twenty-five supporters came with'the tcam'tQ s#e them hold the lead gained in Calgary, not expecting any more than that. There were nearly one thousand people on the square who fully expected to see their pets overcome the lead and pull out triumphant. At 3.08 Referee C. P. McQueen of Calgary, and Judge of Play Dr. Stan ley ot High River started them oft. Calgary started oft with a rush but Stewart relieved to Winkler, who passed- to Gov to Skelth to "Winkler whoso shot hit the post: In another minute Winkler missed a hard chance. Calgary then worked in tho prettiest piece ot combination of the game, re suiting in a score by Mac Dodd in 4.00. That settled it. If Lsthbrldge had scored first, the cup would still bo in Lethbrldge -but they lost thoir nerve. During the rest of tho quarter the game was ragged, and in fact if was very seldom during fhe remainder of tlie gamo that there was any good la crossa.
