A PETTY SUBTERFUGE MR. BORDEN tries fo give the closure coloring by reading excerpts, from Liberal speeches in 1911 supporting the idea. The great outstanding fact remains that the Liberal party led by. u statesman, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, refused to take away one iota of the measure and responsible gov- ernment enjoyed in the country. Sir Wilfrid said no, to demands j for the closure. He preferred to consult the people. He did -so and was defeated. Tin: defeat was honorable when sustained in upholding the best traditions of bur great and glorious British Laurier's name will go down into history as a states- man. Mr. Bordau runs the risk of being termed a petty politic- ian. It was an eyjl day for the once high minded, .gentleman from Halifax when he fell under the spell of the machine politic- ian from Manitoba; by name Robert Rogers. WILL THEY-no. IT? IF ONK OOlW IH'UPOSB WHS served by Preniifr Sifton's visit to wns that Hie people were given the oppor- tunity to hear from his own lips n contradiction to the vilifying statements of Messrs. Dennett and Michener, with regard to the Edmonton and Uunvcgan Railway. Both these gentlemen gave as the reason for the building of the line that it was to benefit Mr, Burrows, a family connection of Mr. Sifton through his brother. In addlUon to showing that the railroad in no way ap- proached, the timber limits mentioritxl, the barefaced falsehood of Ihe Beniiett-Michcner statement was disclosed by the dcclitrn- tion of the Premier that the charter was a Federal one, and tliu mapping of the route had nothing to do with the Provincial Government. With men like Messrs. Bennett find Michener bunting the big drum of morality, the candid statement hefird last nigh ought to be sufficient to unmusk'their hypocrisy. Further, the nir aught to be olearcd once far all with re- gard to the natural resources, and meretricious arguments ol the Stewurt and Ives brand, that the only way Mr. Borden couU he brought to know that the people of Alberta desired control of their natural resources, would be by voting Conservative, wns flung lo the four winds of heaven. Mr. Sifton made it clear not only that the legislature has nuide the Federal Premier awnre of the desire of the .people of the Province, but that Mr. Borden was fully alive to their wishes. This from the simple fact that in his late tour of the West he declared on every platform that if returned to power he'-.wpulci grant the Western Provinces the control of their resources. To tell the electors after this Unit the only way Mr. Borden can be made acquainted with their wishes is by returning a Con- servative government to Edmonton is n thin attempt nt suggest- ing red tape methods for the purpose of carrying out a cam- paign of wholesale bribery. The promise was clearly and distinctly made, without any proviso, and with the knowledge that n Liberal Government at tiie time in power in Alberta. Let Mr. Ives and. Dr. Stewart make note of this, and either abandon 'the game they ..are play- ng, or hnve the candor to "state why they are introducing into the campaign the particular argument they-are using.

They have such an ingenious method of deciding on the rights of the acts they practise. In. ordinary -Rnglisli these would be denoted by one But that is a definition which has too glaring a significance, and would not suit these self-righteous gentlemen. So, before coming to the point, they preface their speeches by a skilful disquisition on the ethics of political morality, and a censure on those whom they accuse of "insulting the intelli- gence of the electors." When they have got fts they imagine their audiences hypnotized to the belief that they are the only .'exponents of everything that is good and just, they seek the psychological moment to spring-their baits.: The natural re- sources for the Province serves for any locality they are at the __tjnie_speaking in, and_the internal elevator for the particular spot where the bribe has'tlfe Wiiile clothing themselves with a_ thinly-disguised cloak of morality these very men are not above calling their opponents .hypocrites. Even R. B. Bennett, known to his following as the is not above such tactics, and following the usual pre- liminary winds up by bringing out, as he "did at the Majestic, the biggest gun in his battery of argument which he considers will not fail to shatter every issue campaign, and cause the electors to decide on which side tHey should cast their votes. It is lime that the people should take stock of these men and let that they see through their attempts to place them- selves on moral pedestals for hoodwinking the electors as to their.real object. OUR POINT OF VIEW Mr. Elector, which 'do you prefer, Sif ton-and Progress or Bennett and Slander? Dr. Stewart is modest. He spoke at Cardstpn and says the riding is going Tpry. It is to laugh. The Liberals will carry at least forty sealskin the.-Province. The people are wise to that fact. Mr. Bennett is the slanderer of Americans" and the besmirch- er ot the people of Cnrdston, L Mr. Bennett didn't "pause for a reply" Wednesday night. The expression is changed now to "That's ,all." Beimeit had no po'icy lo announce. What clo the boosters think of it. All Bennett could do was to slang wang the Liberals. Not one word of a constructive policy. What do the builders aip of Alberta say about Mr. Bennett and his SECURED FROM LOSS THE DREADFUL INIQUITIES of Clarke of Kansas City, and the fearsome line which he would have fashioned, had he been allowed his own sweet will, are freely dealt with, not only Opposition platforms, but in Opposition literature. For the for which the Province, having guaranteed the bonds, is responsible, the people would have had a badly built and badly equipped railway; and the saddled with: an asset not only of no value, but one- which would have Entailed on it a continual loss. Read the Opposition literature on the matter, and then con- ,Sider from what the people of the Province have been spared. And when doing this do not forget that Mr. Michener advocates that a deal should have been made for allowing the contract to be carried out for giving the Province this "desirable" railroad, and Mr. Bennett holds up his hands in righteous horror at the iniquity of a government that would not allow such things to be. When you consider seriously all this talk about the notor- ious A. G. W. let this point stick with you, and do not be led away from it by any melodramatic efforts and postures.
