Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 17, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta A, '} Thjiu'sday, April 17, 1913 f * THE LETHBRTDGE DAILY HERALD Page 7 A DUNLOP TRACTION TREAD TO-DAY AN ORDINARY NON-SKID TO-DAY 23 25 Wear Scarcely Percept- Get To-morrow's From To- Features that apply not only the day you buy the tires-but six months after-are the only features you ought to pay for. With ordinary non-skids the tread is bound to wear smooth sooner or later--usually sooner-because there is no size to the non-skidding surface. It 18 different with Dunlop Traction Tread. When you buy this tire you get the biggest anti-skidding surface in the world. The wear on Dunlop Traction Tread corrugations is but the slightest, and it's no greater in the centre of the tread than on the sides. Thus with Dunlop Traction Tread you get the benefit of the traction grip all the way down with the wear. Therefore, you are still getting what you can get from no other tire-what you paid for in the first- place. It isn't sufficie^t that you look ahead when driving Look ahead when busing your anti-skid tires.

OR ROOT OPPOSES NIITIVE AND REFERENDUM Subversive and Individual Liberty and Legislature Would Be Born of Impulse (Princeton, NJ., April 17.-In the course of his second lecture in Alexandra iHall, Princeton University, last night upon "The Essentials of 'the CODiilltutlon," Senator Root declared that the fundamental doctrine of the constitution Is the importance of individual liberty. "The ancient republlcH," he said, "placed the state first and regarded the individual only as a member of the state. They never escaped from the attitude toward public and individual .rights, dictated by the necessity of military organization and defence. The Anglo-Saxon Idea, on the other hand, looked first io the Individual. When, a century and a halt aftei" the conquest, the bfirons of England set themselves to limit the power of tile Crown, they asserted the rights of individual freedom and laid the foundation stone, of our system of government in this solemn pledge of the great charter: " 'No free man shall be taken or imprisoned or be dip-seized of his free-bold ,or his liberties or his free customs, or he outlawed or exiled, or otherwise destroyed, but by the lawful judgment of bis peers, or by the law of the land.' "It is Impossible," continued Senator Root, "to overestimate the importance of the consequences which .followed from these two distinct theories of government. The one gave us the dominion, but also the decline and (fall of Rome. The .tremendous potency wt the other subdued the victorious Normani to the conquered Saxons. Conception of Justice re-.lected the claims of divine right by the Stuarts, and supplied the amazing formative power which has moulded, according to the common law, the thought and custom of the hundred mlUiooal of men drawn, who inhafbit this continent nor>th of the Rio Grande." After reviewing In detail, the rights of the indivlduares guaranteed in tho constitution, Benw'ot Root referred to the fs|�t that just as the Magna Charta imposed lionltaition upon the Crown and to ensure the rights of the Individual, so the oonstltution imposes limitations upon powers of the sov-erelgii people and ejjcludes the agencies of popular gpvernment from authority to impair the rights of the individual. Thiis Senator Hopt argued against the theory of the Initiative and referendum, holding that legislation under such a system would be subject to momentary Impulses, passions and prejudices. Senhtor Root then assailed the recall of judges and judicial decisions. "It has been proposed," he said, "that it a specified proponfion of the voters ate dlBsatlsfled with a judge's deolBlon, they may require that at the next election, or at a special eleotion, the question shall be pi-esented to the electors 'whether the judge shall be permitted to continue In office. This ordeal differs radically from the popular judgment which a judge Is called upon te meet at the end of his term, however short that may be, ecause when his term has expired he is judged upon his general course of conduct as a whole." yp M S OF OFFICE DEMOCRATS TAKE A WHACK AT OLD GAME-DIVIDE PLUMS Washington, Apr]; X�.-The rank and file of Demowacy got their first whack at tho federal plum tree yesterday when President Wilson sent G5 nominations for postmasters to the Senate. All the nominations are for the posts that became vacant in the Tatt j administration. Selections from the ranks of the Republican faithful were made by Mr. Taft but were held up by the Democrats in the Senate, who desired the patronage for themselves. The.indication of this first batch-of postoftice appointments is that President Wilson is going to play the game In regard to these minor appointments under the same rules and � regulations that have obtained under- other administrations. ..... The nominations sent in today are for 28 states and most of th'em are for small towns. It is appoln'tments of this character, however, that have been causing members of Congress the most trouble. Discussion among New York state members of Congress: as to the dls-tTlbutlon of patronage Is very general. Many are trying tb figure out just what influence Senator O'Girman and the Tammany Hall will have with the present adminiBtration.
