BORDEN tries to 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, a statesman. Sir Wilfrid Laurier, refused to take away one iota of the measure pohtical freedom and responsible gov-ermnent enjoyed in tlie country. Sir "Wilfrid said no, to demands for the closure. He preferred to consult the people. He did so and was defeated. The defeat was honorable when sustained in Aipholding the best traditions of; bur great and glorious British liberty. Laurier's name will go down into history as a states-inan. Mr. Borden runs the risk of being termed a petty politic-^iah. It 'was an evil day for the once high minded gentleman from Halifax when he fell under the spell of the macliine politician from-ManitobaVby name Robert Rogers. TOO THINLY DISGUISED  As EXPERTS in the science of casuistry the Opposition speak- ers certainly shine. They have such an ingenious method of /deciding on the rights of the acts they practise. In ordinarj' English these would be denoted by one word-bribery. 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 disquisiliou on the ethics of poUtical morality, and a censure on those whom they accuse of "insulting the intelligence of the electors." When they have got as 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 :time speaking in, and the internal elevator for the particular spot ..ivhere the bribe has the most appeal. Wiiile clothing themselves with a thinly-disguised cloak of anorality tliese very men are not above calling their opponents lliypocrites. . Even R. B. Bennett, known to his following as the it have been possible for Mr. Michener to carry out the' policy he advocates. � \ ' WILL THEY do: IT? ^ if ONE GOOD PURPOSE waS served by PiA vnii^ for .Tones and a Greater Province. A LIFT-BUT WHERE TO? ' Mr. Borden-"Jump In and I will give you a lift." The Lady-"Yes, hut which way are you driving?' Mr. Borden-"Well, to tell you the truth, Madam, 1 don't exactly know. !�(.-. -liT.lns to follow along wherever the road's good." recognized as th� official Intelligencer of tho Conservative cause.

Jjiggest gun in his battery of argument which he considers will iiot fail to shatter every issue in the campaign, and cause the electors to, decide on which side they should cast their votes. It is time that the people should take stock of these men and i 3et them know that they see through their attempts to place themselves on moral pedestals for hoodwinking the electors as to Iheir. real object. Mr Bennett delved into alliteration with the cute saying Sifton and Soft Soap. There is another illuminating alliterative remark-Bennett, Bosh and Buncombe. Mr. Bennett wasn't prescribing remedies for railway troubles. Not a bit of it. As the counsel for one of the litigants it .is Mr. Bennett's ambition to prevent a seltlemeni. He is out after the shekels. The more Utigation the better. What Others Think Oe Rogers Gang (Nanton'JHews) II any smooth stranger comes snooping around working politics the next two weeks, It will be safe to ask him what kind ol weather they had in Manitoba last wei^k. Money for Outsiders " (Nanton News)' We don't think the federal machine is treating the local ConBerya,tlve workers uulte right. Why should they not be paid for their wdrk, Instead of all the money going to those imported whai-ls-ils? i SECURED FROM LOSS lipHE DREADFUL INIQUITIES of Clarke of Kansas City, and .;1 the fearsome line which he would have fashioned, had he What a nice position Dr. Stewart was in while sitting on the ^en allowed his own sweet will, are freely dealt with, not only same platform and Ustening to his leader, R. Borillrti Bennett, '6n'Opposition platforms, but in Opposition literature. For the denouncing the Machinery Bill. Dr. Stewart suppoi*ted the ^^7,400,000, for which the Province, having guaranteed the bonds, Macliinery Bill. it responsible, the people would have had a badly built and badly - ------- 'equipped railway; and the I^rovince would have been saddled . with an asset not only of no value, but one wliich would have ' fntailed on it a continual loss. . Read the Opposition literature on the matter, and then con-t^ider from what the people of the Province have been spared. vJlnd when doing this do not forget that Mr. Michener advocates i, It^at a deal should have been made for allowing the contract to .^^e'carried out for giving the Province this "desirable" railroad, �i;; Mr, Bennett holds up his hands in righteous horror at the ', /'Iniquity of a government that would not allow sucii things to be. �y ; When you consider seriously all this talk about the notor-l JoW" A. & G. W. let this point stick with you, and do not be led |way from it by any melodramatic efforts and postures. Re-�|jpenlj�6r that at this very moment the whole sum of $7,400,000 Jf!-intact True interest is being paid on it, but that would have -hnd to.be paid all along, even if the money was expended on the .JjrjaJL^way, and in addition to this further loss would have de-''Qlved.on the Province in the working of a rotten railroad. The �<:pf,if7,400,000 would have been frittered away, and the Pro-itev-lj^ving guaranteed the bonds would be responsible for its ^J^IfQW, at any rate, there is at least something tangible in the of the money deposited in the bank. There is the sub-^Ijcs^Wd riot the shadow.
