Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 7, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta s Impression iennett's Confab '^(Continued from Tout paee). I r>'till'itliu audience bCRins to ififhtikithat- R. B. may Imvo got his i|initials':frora tliat anthem. Yes, R. SBishis � the noise with him, and ;i,M.v's^hjife'a .m he enters at oxactlj' "�%,'^li,e^-;right-psycholoeieal monirut, he sftsTnd piecesj R. B. steps forward to ad-. Jdress the people. He starts m a low � jlibne of voice. "Louder,"' savs some- rSc VI Caa'fc fire until I get the range", ;;.i'ay,S R. B.,. being quick at rcparle*. " >That word "fire" suggests some- ii jit -"Bonfire, Bon/Ire" f'i'^This from all parts of the hall, and justvhere the Edmonton audience gets >R,;;B.'s goat. The tucker go?s right ; Jjutrofhim, and from now ou it is ' >va chastened ii. B. that does the �-^ieling. ^ - am not an issue, forget uie," ^ys R. B., and thrn proceeds to re-��.call hmiself for forty minutes to the aUdisnce. Forty minutes is a prrtty : jtodd. slice to give to an issue that :;:i^;as dead and forgotten as R. B. v/Bels himself to be. but it tates that � C^ to explain how he got in ;^ "^^^^ many places. Of course ;;^|jel:,i{)erals can't stop R. B.'s ac-i-:*p8l;, flow, of lan^^^ any more than Jfehey can stop the Saskatchewan, i;i -sj)itc, but they can keep him Avork--we' nights defending himself. The jifeiw5(|^st! thing B. B. explains is how glad '4#io;sis that he is a target for nows^ JJ^pc'r, abuse. //>,|^om the extracts he reads and the nXv^^Ugerly ^^ay ho handles theiri, one tets:,'Avli'snev�r he, se;s.a goad begtmu; ' "Sir M'\ znd T" ,lJaipsacjatidu,,oiE', English inv.cs-aye'fMpse* qlpvatits npw, ,and '�>\on tspay-.agimuch foJ^?^m^ ^,^it"^sjust ;the saiii:|||th^P iS^flUeVbe ha^ bean hSi^mg.; (jiSj^ot ,di:i^yfng- back-ifl||idiKs| 'asjj!"1:Ts!en:ty;i .years., What's '^KSslii^'hy' th^H^pf irxttdi%tTiiesjf-iii||pm.4 Moeif'f-li'eti mak&Jsaib w^^^ Edward Michcner. All. he pretends to be is Michener's prophet. He calls "Little Arthur" a humbug,.' and contrasts him with those "two fine young men", Ewing and GriesbRch, mere kids, not a day over forty; but comers. The two line young men just I eat this sort of stuff up, but some [impatient person at the back calls !out, "Get on, with the meeting'', fand R. B. passes rapidly to Bob Rog: ! ers, whom Jio says he hasn't seen I since he left Ottawa. � As this is a plijsicnl fa^t, the Uu-jdieiice lets it go at thiit. Tlius . by angling imporcoptible degrees R. B. loonies to his great topic, the A. & iG. W: As a matter of fact, poor little Ewing makes a far more lucid speech On this subject than R. B;, but R. B. is the real lightning es-. press from Ottawa and has the rirht 'of way, so there's nothing for, * i cuttle "man but a place on the siding-Contortionist Argument R. B. dresses up the A. & G. W. in everything trbni farco comedy to melodrama, but would you believe it; he fails to give it literary charm., It filters away .while he is talking about it, it filters away when he starts, and it filters about the middle, ahd wherf he says, "Hut that's not all" it (liters away nioro and when he says, "I have something worse than that to toll you" it walks out in a body. By � the time R. B. reaches his perforation" the hall looks as, empty as if tour alarm fire calls had been turned in, although R. B. sets up a straw man and knocks it out with a slap in the jaw, although he^battsrs it all over the shop like a temperance, lecturer's horrible example the audicntio keeps streaming out. He appeals to his tory friends as fat as the pyramids of Egypt to support his arguments, but the audience coa-tinucs'to. break away. Even Major Gricsbach holds 'em better,.and' you know how close to tlie ma.sses Major Griesbach is, es-peoiallv: at election time. The band; plays, "Hc'� a Jolly Good Fello-w,"' tqir the major is about a& jolly as a lemon without the trimming. The ^ajori comes out as; a Joker.; He triesj, tb'^e 'as fiinriy as Boli,Edwards, hut this is -a hard- job, for Bob'' makes cracks: -However, the major has 'ad imaginary dialogue between Frank Oliver and Sir Wilfrid LaUrierwhich is supposed to he a, side splitter and} "he, pulls itrofl. in spite � of .: our screams. -The major is about as tun-; nji asi a ccutch, his humor, .woilld make^a great hit at a funeral a*s a ruatterM'contrast.
