Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 11, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta { f 1 i V 1 1 Thursday, 10,1913 THE tMHBKIDGE DAILY HERALP Page 3 Great Audience Greets Alberta^s Premier (Conttniiod Irom front paRO). In thd province. There was alao with him on the platform a man who ha^ been in the public eye in the Wopt rot a long time, as a lawyer, a Chief Outttlce and now as Premier of Al-tKJrta-an exceedingly able und just man and, Just now,- much vlllOed. However be would aak only for British fair play and justice tn not accuB-Injr him of crimes \intil he had had a ohanco to defend hlmseir. The Oiindfdate Mr, Jones reoeh^tl a ronsJng rocep-tlon. Ho said: *'Whlle I deem It nn honor to stand on thlg platform to* Slight, I would. not have been hero had It not been the wleh of organls^ed jlabor. As nn ofllcor of otic of the largest labor organizations In the west 1 hare always tried to do everything In my power to ameliorate the conditions of the working claBses, We have endeavored to go forward, and Hhe labor men of this city hellevod tho time had come when they should have Bomebody In the legislature to Hght dhelr battles on the floor of the house. 1 have been sent to Edmonton by the organization which I represent on Jeglslatlon pertaining to labor. 1 wish right hero to tliank the Premier for what he has done for us, and every member of the government that has supported us In our contention for better (londitions. His Stand In the C' Herald the day after his arrival from Ottawa to take his non-partlzan pcvrt in tlie present campaign, Mr. Slfton challenged Mr. Bennett or Mr. Mlchener or^ir. Stewart to say that he. or any member of the government had over exploited the resources of tho province, to any degi'ee, even a dollar, for their own purposed" They had never said so on the floor of tho House. Why should they say so now to the electors for Lho purpose of catching votes? Timber Limitc-Yes? "And until these men ate ready to prove statements of such a character thoy are slanderers. Mr. Mlchener never said a word about tho railways in the House. Yet ho comes to Macleod, and fella the electors that the bonds of the Edmonton and Dunvegan Railway have been guaranteed, and that the whole proposition is bad. Kvery Conservative In the House has had a list of the timber limits owned by T, A. Burrows in this province. Thoso resources are under Federal control. Thoy could get tho facts. Whether they �ald It In Ignorance, or whether they were maliciously mia-(stating the trutli, Ihey knew what tliey said about the IiJdmonton and Dunvegan was not true," and the Premier went on to read a telegram from Mr. Burrows, stating that he (Mr. Burrows) had never, now or In the past, owned any timber limits north or west of the Athabasca River. "But If he did. would that be any Morris Theatre "The Ilalf-nieea S('(Mlt" A Western Drama, Feature Two-Re�l "His Cureer" Drama The Love-Sick Cowboy" Roaring Comedy PRICES: 10c and 15c.

A Platform-Rejuvenated * MIcheneV Is inclined the same The Red Deer platform has dug up, one passed in Red Doer back In 1909; It has been rejuvenated anu passed on to the public as being the very Identical same as that passed In the fall of 1909. The peculiar thing about it Is that it.con-ltains a clause calling for the immediate settlem'wnt of the A. & G. W, If such wore the tactics of their oj)* ponenta, there would be a change of g)fverjimont, maybe In five years, maybe a good deal later. Those "Uniform** Contracts Dealing with tho farm machinery act, he declared that the farmers hud been signing the uniform contract about which the opposition are talking for years. Jt was uniform all right, uniformly in the Interest of the machinery men, but not uniformely i.i the Interests % the farmer.

A Federal Charter "And Mlchener and Bennett knew that this line was being built under a Federal charter, that the route had bi^en ppfoved 4�y a Consarvatlvo Minister of Hailvays, and that the provincial government had nothing whatever to say about the route or the powers of the company. I think, ladles and gentlemen, yov will agree with me that the Conservatives are hardly conducting this campaign up to the .high standard they would lead you to believe." Another Exposure Dealing with the question of tho natural resources, Mr. Sifton charged again that tho public utterances of Conservative speakers when they said that he had never madc the wishes of tho people known to the Borden Cabinet were slanderous. Ho road letters, which have, already appeared in print, showing that both Sir Wilfrid Laurler, when he was Premier, and afterwards Premier Borden, had recelv-ed a copy of his letter on .the matter, and that Premier Borden had officially recognized that letter, promising to arrange an Interview on the matter. So far the Interview has never been arranged. But In view of Mr. Borden*6 pre-election promises In this regard, ho hardly thought it becoming on tho part of Mr. Bennett and other Conaervativo speakers to tell the electors of tho province that In order to gain control of tho resourcea of tho province, a Tory government must bo roturaod to Kdmontoa. Promises-Not "It remains for these men of high moral standing along political lines to hold out to you this bribe." A Voice-How about a laud titles' office? Mr, Sifton-What does the gentleman want? yoice-A land tUiea' offlco. A pro- Mr. Sifton-Oh, no; you will never get a promise from me. I have stood on 4his and other platforms in timeo past, asking for your voles, hut I havo never yet had to hold out a bribe in order to bo elected. Mr. Slfton's answer was from tho shoulder, and was amidst vociferous applause. Mr. Slfton then went into ernment record in the past, ho would not appeal to the on a campaign of promises, willing to stand or fall on the record of the past three years. He held J that If the government's record was not good enough to ensure their election, no manifesto of promises would return them. The legislation for tho farmers hnd occupied a great deal of attention during tbe session Just endleoiorB are being told that the U. F. A. were responsible for it because they merely asked for it But it is not the rule that farmers, miners and those In other trades receive wh&t tliey ask for simply bo-cause they ask. The government had spent a great deal of time on legislation for the farmers.' He would not .talk. longer about the bills, but they were fen the good of the whole province. If faults are found in them, it is for the legislature to remedy the faults in coming sessions, year by year, for the electors can have tho asBurance that the government is working in the interests of the large masses of the people, and not for the trusts and corporations. The governrntnt has been charged with running the province into debt. Mr. Sifton acknowledged that a lot of money had been spent, more, in fact, per head of population than in other provinces, but with less cost of administration thaii in other provinces. The administration Of the affairs of the province has been economical, and that was one reason ho looked to see the Liberal party returned to power on April 17. The Provincial Debt The debt of the province Is $1'1,400,-000, and he had never received $69.-000 of It. In fact, he had never had a bank account so large, and, therefore, had' never had any photograph taken of it. Mr. Bennett's mind runs high since he went down east, How-ev-er, the debt is slightly over $14,-000,000. of which $6,opO,000 Is invested in tho telephone system. The system Is worth more, and could bo sold for more today to any telephone corpcratlon than tho amount Invested in it. After fourteen years of Bell Telephone Co. monopoly, the province had in use a few hundred miles of line. During the past three years nmre line has been built each year than 'was in operation In the i)rovInce when taken over from the Bell. The Opposition charges that a sinking fund is not provided. The revenue from the system pays all the charges of maintenance, operation and interest on the capital Invested. He believed in keeping the plant In such condition that It Is always worth what Is sunk in it in capital accoimt, and a sinking fimd Is not needed to cause the subscribers to pay twice the price, as If tho Bell still owned the system. Railway Competition The Premier nad thought, from reports, that he would hardly dare to come to Lethbrldge, and dUcuss railways. However, he was aure the electors of Lethbrldge were satisfied with what had been done In this regard. When he took office, after thirty years of railway building, there were 1505 milee of railway line in operation.

What had been built hnd benefitted every pan of the province from north to south. There w*as no need to say that the G. T. P. and the C. N. R, imd to start at the main line and build south. They have reached Calgary- and this in spite of frravo dlfflcnltiea. Of course, he knew Mr. Bennett had severed his connections with the C. P. R. However, they would be into the south in due course. There are two thousand miles more guaranteed by the provincial government, and the policy of the government regarding railways would be followed until every part of the province Is assured of railway competition, without which it cannot prosper. Appeal on His Record Mr. Slfton's appeal to the people bad been direct on the record of the government.. He said he was not ask-Inr the electors to vote for him on sonllment, but If they believed the policy of the Slfton admlnistraiion had'been one which would appeal to business men bent on developing the resourccr. of a vaat province, ho was not at all afraid of tho result on April 17, and looked for Mr. .lones to be returned as member for I_.ethbrldgp city.

Nicholson is to design tho Lipton boat which will seek to win back for the British the America's Cup. This wiH not be Nicholson's first connection with the contests for tho Cup. His yards at Gosport were used to dock the original American when she was under repairs. He added today : *I wish to correct the unfortunate impression prevailing in the United States that I am afraid of a 00 loot yacht. 1 believe I could build one which would cross tlie Atlantic ocean safelv.
