Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 27, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta Kn.:L^........-,.\.t;:!.:,., i- '-ii-7--r-^-' LETHBRID6B HBRAtD sriPaOKA BUCHANAN Publishers �. SIMPSON W. A. BCCBAXAK SaBSCRXPTION: n Adv�ao� f 1.50  year O.hsrwlss ta.OO  ysar ADVERTISING: Psi Month - a it in cwry township and tl�esc jorr.sspon-, dents prepare reports and sendihem ' to ISdmonton, where thoy are compiled and made into a district re -port. It can bo easily understood that the abspnce of .reports from one or two districts might make a big difference in the acreage and e�tt-nmted yield. Even in the case of an incompletn report it should not be printed without a notice being published alongside of H that the le-l>ort is incomplete and does aotcov-vr the entire district. The best remedy, to our mind, is the abolition of the township cor -respondeot altogether and the cin-ploynient of a fully qualified man to cover the district and tabulate the statiFtlcs. Necessarfly the man would have to be paid but it aould be money well spent. These reports are sent all over the United States, ami from them Intending settlers gather information that may either induce thorn to come here and live or decide not to come because the report is not cheerful enough. Tnlce this la�t report, in the hand of a man in Dakota. What would he think of the I�thhridge district? Jly would think poorly of it, yet if he only knew the correct figures, ho u-ould be attracted to this district at once fur the crops here 4ire Iwuntiful and will average, to the acre as well as any section of Alberta. By all means let us have corriKt reports, no matter what they may cost. puopK; olf IJjtiibriiigc; ilie salisifiod vith Mr. I'''iiiltt.v".s e.vplaimtiixi.

But why shouldn't they when they have, gas to gencr.ite them. WE WIST NAVE 6A1 Wc can't find gas in Lethbridye too soon. It will be the greatest day m Lethbridge'ti history, when it is found. It mean a fur brighter futuie than has ever been anticipated tor this city. Gas not only means cheap light, cheap pottier and cheap fuel-tbrci factors that in themselves attract iw>puIation-'but it means u revenue producer that will give us a surplus enabling us to make absolutely necessary iiniirovcments, such as a new city hall and cement walk-s. Nothing would improve the appear -ance of our city more than cemeut walks. If you discredit that statement visit Medicine Hat and vou will bo convinceh that what we aay is true. EMTORIAL NOTES. If you want Lethbridge to never cease boosting. grow The mora we travel about' the wost the more convinced we become that Iwtbbridge is destined to be a la.^" city in the near future. Besulvc to plant more trees spring. ne�t Some 'people tried to charge the tiberal government with ffiving the Sabbath Observance Bill a cold deal. Bev. Mr. Shearer, the Sub-bath Observance eccretary, thinks it is a splendid measure and surely if Medicine Hat's residential section appears to better advantage than Lethpbridgo for the reason thai it's more compact. Our trouble here is the fact that we are so scattered. Some of our fine homes are locair^d alongside a shack. In Medicine H'lt a couple of streets seem to possess all the substantial residences and they certainly look well. I question whether any city in the west pos -sesses a better lot ,of homes than Medicine liat. And they are surrounded by beautiful lawns and tre.ound to be greater than Medicine Hat. We arc located in the centre of a rich and growing,district of j^'hich Lethbridge will e%'er be the business and wholesale centre. When we get gas we will S3on hsve lots of cement wslka, a new city hall and other things, that Medichw Hat has secured -through its income from its great gas lo  sources. he is satisfied the rest of sbbuid be. mortals The Edmonton Saturday News kM>ps oii inliproving. The lust issue is the best yet. It was printed on tine book paper, contained some illustrations and looked brighter all round, than ever. May it enjoy continuous prosperity for it is one of the best edited and cleanest papers inhabiting the province at the pret-cut time. The resignation of C. W. Peterson from t'hjji secretaryship of the Calgary Board of Trade means that that city loses one of the fjcst servants it ever possessed. In his cap-acity as secretary of tite Board of Trade he did more for Calgary, than probably any other man in the cit.v. Cut politics out of local organi-tatlons. It is starting to creep iii and if it ever gets lirnily seated it will be a sorry day for the city. The Calgary Herald's attack .,n Mr. Flnlay was, no doubt occasioned by t^at gentleman having vole^ to le bmrd froM." The Board ol TfUo, 'the body which ibe msttor isp i'witkfllr;; FlBlay OA jMtait of the Rev. J. G, Shearer in his addriss at Wesley Church Sunday cvenlni{, related a story that has a heap ''.( truth in it, from the Sabbath Observance point anywdy, A FrJuch Canadian M. P. and a Protestant clergyman were discussing Sabbath Observance. The clcrginian lidd that the Roman Catholics did ti >t obsen'e the Sabbath as trail as the Protestants. "Well," the M.P. ri>-plied, "we get up in the ntorning and attend muss at six o'clock .iiid attend another service a few houn later and maybe wo do relax a little later in the day, but I have observed Protestf^nts only recognim th^ last third of the day. while We spand the first two thirds at Church.;' The point should he plain.
