Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 14, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta iiERICAN TELLS WHY HE WILL VOTE LIBERAL 1^ ii|ptr;-r juat about tor* my heart up /^l^^tlie Toots ft'hea I left Iowa aud '^lino itoAltoerta. A man don't live "'"^e^inia. place -nrlthout making nda, and formlDgr attachments that' TH.,h*tes,to lose. But I bad ploneer-^W;-in my blood. My father was a :,^a6�- and his father before ilm. broke-soil, iinproved the farm, (ib!& It, took the profit,'and passed on. cli'gBete I'm what you.might call a coa-,8tltational pioneer. At any rate I just naturfilly can't resist an adventure, so-vhen the new, free, cheap land of AAeFta began caUlng' me some ten 'Jflacors ago I polled up my stakes and lit out. I came to Alberta because I ^^]iikd.'^ heard there was more mixed farming - here than in Sasl^atcliewao. ; Ifiitveraached a time in life when I j;*ei^^^ as being the ; ifiosi;'Belf-reliAnit. What's more, it I '^^elB like home and not so much like 'y�oia^^b^ a wheat farm. En- j cWgk ftald-twant to end my days on :* Mixed farm.  " . ' iI:,hope I am as good a citizen of the : tJai'on Jack as I was of Old Glory. I v:T^ouian't like to own up that perhaps ' iaV and order aire a little better kept . h^'re and property is a -bit safer, but K�.ii5;how it's good enough for ms. I cj&'t see any flies in my butter. Tha two countries have free Anglo-Saxon , institutions'and we're first-cousins by hj^io^, and we get along well together ana would get along better if only a i certain breed of flannel-mouthed poli-'ticians would, let us. It was that kind /vOf'iroulilfrmakor who came up to me iS^ix I ims'Iooking at it picture in the Canadian building at and .he does not helong to the P^iiW'^i!'^*^'*^ has been preaoh- ?lieTB the Pregres^ ^i^feep*;wfe*noiTnattor^what^'n |itt>^)y\tBmppjartly; I am,,a Prosreia-� -si^'^'Al^erta ajid that means that I |fl^f8.5La�era,rt>ecause it's on that side |Qli^?jfJBrofeii^Ives;,'aTe. =. As I;; see it, � hes^i Abe Jjlncoih^s deai- cription of government as of, by and for the people. I was- right Sony to see the Liberal government at Ottawa defeated in September, 1911, on a real, progressive policy of wider markets. One comfort is that the, Question is bound to come up again, A good cause is lllie a good man-you caa'n kee^p it doivn. I could never understand why Ine common people, not to mention the farmers of Ontario, turned Laur-ier down iu 1911 on a bed rock Liberal issue of* freer trade. With the United States getting ready to wash hei-selt clean of the errors of high protection ouo would naturally expect Canada to follow a good exarapie. Howeveiv T ."iuppose you have to suffer to learn. Somebody once told me that the voice of the people has to apeak wrong three times before it speaks right once. Well, there may be somethiug in that. The prairie west voted all right on the (luestion of wider markets. Why? Because the prairie vi-est is Liberal and Progressive. It was the bank-ridden, railway-ridden, manufacturer-ridden east-Tory Ontario for the most part-^the selfish, misled, deluded- oast that spilled the beans. Ottawa questions, Mr. Editor, are like Washington questions, big and often enough picturesque, 'but coming right down to brass lucks it's the provincial government that I'm most interested in. It's the provincial government that touches us wliere we live and deals with the things that make up our dally life. By tbk same token, it's the provincial government which may have to defend our provincial rights .against ToT>- federal encroachments at Ottawa, just as state rights have heen defended by stale legislatures against the power grabbers at Washington. As a Progressive, I'm mighty glad that we have.the Progressive, Liberal, Slf-ton gom'nment to do these things for-us. The Sifton government may make mistakes. What government that moves ahead doesn't? It is only a stand-pat government that seeks to avoid mistakes by standing pat, and that is the greatest mistake of all. Ottawa has a precious specimen of stand-pat government just now. Ifc not only stands pat hut it sits tight and does nothing for fear -of being kicked- out if it goes to the country. Arid just here let me say that I'm with the Liberals on their naval policy. My mind runs more to bos cars than hattle8l\ips, but if we are to have Dreadnoughts 1 say spend the money in Canada-that's good business and good patrioUsin. The Sifton government believes in development. So do I. If you don't develop you shrink. Take your own case. ;^t 20 years of age'you werfc wearing thirteen-and-a-half icollara^, at S^rty-five yotj tooir.wze slxfeen; at SO, it you .live that'long;-you'll be back to xhirteen-and-a-half again. It's the same with government as with men.' The Sifton government is 'iie kind that won't let Alberta Slip iback to thirteenfand-a-half collars; - r was here in 190G, when Gilberts ' started'housekeeping. It was Ilka being young again. 1 grew up with the puhllc'c questions, followed them from A to Z'.'-'and now 1 know them likethe inside.,of my.pocket. People down in the,crowded-.east don't feel that way, but there_:,everybody does; and it's a mighty ;'^lek:,governmen-ti' mtb. so many -eyes^looking on; that could put anything crooked- over without being Jacked; up sharp. , ; The Sifton government has stood the scrutiny. It has proved itself-a rlghtfsmarfc-sauare>desI-all-round government, and can stanOI on its record. It's not for me'to recite all its good deeds, but as a farmer let-Wo pick out rural telephones, land tax, co-operative elevators, and the,Farm Ma-ehinory Act; That Fiann.-Machinery Act gets three,cheers from me-^the manufacturer and the Implement agent can't slip over any moiV little jokers. Here's wiiere I bite this long letter off. What I started out to say was that I'm going to vote for the*Sifton government again-because I'm mighty -well satisfied, v.ith it.' ' ..A. W. TEES. KAISER'S FAMILY WANT MODERN CARiNEA ARRESe D N ARE GETTING TIRED OF DISCOIVI-FORT I^OR THE SAKE OF TRADITION Berlin, April 14.-Crown Prince Wil 11am and his wife. Princess Cecelia, have broken boldly away from Hoh-enzollern tradition and have declined to build a modem, up-to-date residence fitted with every modern, con venience and ^luxury. No longer will they occupy antiquated, medieval pal aces without-hpat, without manning hot and cold water and adequate' hath rooms, lacking proper ventilation and sewage disposal. These old castles may he picturesque, and snn-ounded with the traditions of the family, ibut they are far from being comfortable places to live and bring up children. So th^ Prince and the Princess are engaged in building a new homo th-at will be a palace befitiing their rank, but at the same,, time provided with every appliance for household sanitation and physical comXopt that money can buy. Furthermore, the furnitui* is being designed and built in England. A representative of a liondon furniture house has been here for several weeks, and -the Crown Princess has mad-9 repeated visits to Berlin to discuss designs with him. Though tho Princess has many sympathizers in Germany-in her dislike for fumi' ture of. German design, the - young couple are risking: not only  a storm of indignatipn from thevGerman Industry when -the facti'bacomes (known, ibut perhaps permanent unpopularity from their future-subjects, German royalty - may not- follow EnglisJh f-ashions wjith'impunity. 'This was shown during the life of the Elm-peror's father, his wife, "the English woman,'^: daughter, of Queen Victoria and mother of Emperor -Williata; having been unpopular almost to the extent of dimming the great popularity of Emperor Friedrich. MASSACRED CHRISTIANS' (Athens, � April'-'13;-A body of Turks coming from the coast of Asia Minor "has ma'ssacred' all the Christians among the lnha,hitants of the island of'.-Kasteloi'izo, southeast of Rhodes, according to dispatches received; here today.

''He'was ftecompanied-^by 15-year-oldsgiri, .Who ho s�g.d,- was: his daughter," At {he saipe time the-Paiisofllder'bt the Hugra-Cuenaca' railway company of Ecuador, of which, ii; is said, he is thn promoter, was searched -and all papers and funds seizedi > - The examination disclosed the fact, it is said',-! that the Madero . brothers of Mexico;were at the head of a gigantic scheme which was planned in conjunctions with a projected railway in -Central J^lBxico. The, bonds of this railroad were issued by Henri Rou-chete, the French banker, whose condemnation to imprisonment for alleged transactions in France and its failure to appear in court aroused much interest. Both of these railways exist only in the imagination and the case is still pending, in the courts. Carboneau, it is said, issued $300,000; of railway bonds on April S, and realized-Jl,750,000 therefrom. It Is said that Carboneau has already been in difficulties with the Canadian and French authorities and that he was condemned ',1'ith the failure of the Gold Run mining scheme to two years' imprisonment.' The losses of the victims in that case amounted to several millions. It was in-1809 that Carboneau, known already- as-the count, went to Dawson - City -from Montreal,, where he had been a waiter and restaurant proprietor... He'had little money, but his pleasing manners made friends,, and it was not long before he had acquired promising claims. He found a quicker way to fortune, however, by marrying Belinda Mulrooney, owner of the hotel -at the juncture of the Eldorado and Bonanza Creeks, and holder of theclaims to many valuable properties.. The wedding celebration is still talked of in Dawson by old-timers. At the time of the" kid-I'napping of Miss Agnes it was said that her sister; had begun divorce proceedings, but in 1911, it was said Mrs. Belinda.; Carboneau, former "Klondyke Queen,';'^ sued- Tiifany & Co-, of I^Tew; York, fo.r -jewelry valued, she said, "at jlli45'l, which she had stored .vrit^ the company, so tAat the Cdunt'j from whom she hat parted, could'nqt'^get them. e- di{ get them, it''se'eined; and while the company paid Mt?!*v Carboneau $600, said to be the value named when the , jewelry .'was depii^l'ted, she sued for [-the difference between that and Sll,-45i. At the same 'time she brought action against Revillon Freres for J6,400 worth of fiirs which her husband had also succeeded in getting after she had stored them. A% the time, Mrs. Carboneau said that when she married Carb/jncau she had believed him to; be '*;-T?rench count, but had learned that ih^s polished manners were acquired in a Montreal restaurant. She had-vleftvhim, it �n^as said,, in the fall ot;1904, and had gonev'to New York; Carboneau followed, and learning, o�. his presence in_ the city, she stored her '-jewelry and furs before returning to the Klondyke to look'after'her mming interests. When she came back she learned that Carboneau had procured both jewelry and 'furs' and had disappeared.
