Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 27, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta AttlUTA, tATURDAY, lErrtMiEJt M, The iorid of tabor M frfict tool U Lakr CUtfts britd bya Libr vU it frr to Views eiyrtficd ir A rumor been going the rounds that the. Trades ami Council of Lethbridge have a notion to place still another candidate iu the field, this one to run on the labor ticket pure and simple. Not to take any notice pf this rumor, I understand that Jt. -P. Pettipicce stated after his here" he" would run as the Socialist candidate providing he hud the hearty co-operation of the Trades and Labor Council as representing the large body of laboring men in the city. Supposing the rumor to be true then some one must have blundered. This week I have beon asked about twenty times, "What is the difference between the word .'Social- ist' and the word Labor'? doubt there are hundreds of my read- can answer the question, and 1 leave it to them with the utmost pjaracrapli without any t confidence that an answer forthcoming next week. will bei plank (good term, that) for the next municipal election.

Darkest Afri- ca is not it compared with that street BO far as illumination is cerncd. The- light that is presently on that struct only serves to make darkness visible. What with the, am- ount of wagons, rigs, etc., etc., dump at all conceivable where 3rou can run into them, not to speak in the same breath with the amount of wires embodied in the road which serve as man traps, the approach to Smith Street from Duflcriu is a ter- ror.. "Let there be light." Were it not for L. If. Fowler's generosity in leaving light burning in his office window there might be many serious accidents. men should liave direct representa- tion. The, time' is ,drawJni{ near for another election, and 1 the Trades and Council will brinjf forward two men, appoint a large and strong committee, and work with this end in view.

I noticed that at the last council meet- ing it was, decided .to leave the lay- ing of cement cross walks on Round Street until pavement is put down on the street. The wisdom of this is un- doubted, but what I ami hundreds others also would like to know is the conditions on to be improved. True, we have got a spur track, increase the peace of the residential part considerably (that is if arc not particular what you but how long have-those south of Fowler's blacksmith shop to_con- tinuc without a crossing opposite said when on earth Smith, Street are shop?

If there was nny reason, why this large body of union- ism should not have two ot: Uic City Council nothing said, but surely out of they can produce two men who can sit around" the board'ami di.scuss questions affecting the city as si'ily us the next.

Chivf-Gillespio often has to wait a long time to pal a magis- trate to deal with the case he has and in the meantime keeps the unfor- tunate in the coop. Thi.s is no square shake for the poor sun of a gun who is locked up. ;He may be vho bad actor the police think lie is and again he may not. If isn't it is not a square deal to keep him locked up for hours before he can get a chance to tell a magistrate his story. A cell j is not the most pleasant place "in the; world for an irinoc -tit man to while away a few hours especially when they are such cells as the city has. Some of the aldermen seemed to think that it. wottlil be a good thing or the city from a financial point of view. It-may be but Dad's son from the information he lias got into lis cranium it. The city would have, to pay a man at least fifteen hundred a year for no full- fledged lawyer, would take it for less if he is any good, it's a pretty bum lawyer who lias not got a practice worth a good deal more than that. The city does not want any old has- wasser for its. dispenser of justice.
