Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 18, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta VOLUME VI. TA^LVE PAGES Lethbridge, Albeita^ Fiitlay, April IS; 1013 PRICE-FIVE CBNTS Number lOS Liberals Polled Good Vote but Workingmen Fell Down Hard LIVELY NIGHT Conservatives Celebrated Local Victory-Big Crowd Came to Herald for Returns � - �. While ,the Liberals of Letlibridge Were cheering last night over the return of the Sifton government, the 'l^^poJjters of Dr. Stewart were hav-i^^i; the. time of their lives in the Oonservativo headquarters. The two factions were close together, the big crowd having gathered in' front of the Herald to see the returns flashed- on teefeil? canvas opposite the Herald biiii"'B- ^otli ;crowd3 were good-jji"ed, aud vied with each other in � eniig their respqctive winners. mc. Stewart goes back to the legisr ffljifi with a larger majority than em Ijefore. The returns in another coHf'"> ^"'l comparative vote .^yif tlie 1911 bve-elcotion tell the I ..VbTrOry better than words. . Yesterday was one of the grandest days for voting that could have been foundi and thcf vote was accordingly, large. The total vote 2fi35, was thq largest ever polled in any slecton in this constituency, larger than in 1911 . by 083 votes. The vote in the added f-: .territory was only 192. This shows , that the added territory made only haH as many more votes as'were add-� ed in the city as the constituency in V 'the 1911 election. South, of the traclf, where the olec-tion campaign, for Mr. Jones was in �the- hunda:'of--the Liberals,- his sup-�porters did nobly by liiro, and after -iM nttxcmf^ecir-SLn' lif-;hef~ejJpi'e'ss6d" .'his Satisfaction at'thisiiesult; The majority for Dr. Stewart south of' the track yesterday was 360. Ini 1911 he had 299 , votes: to the good. A summary of the,votes south of the track in the two'elections is as fol' i , '  1913 1911 Liberal ..................' 496 415 Conservative ............... 856 ,714: .The Liberals,, therefore, gained 81 votes in this part of the, city-to 14!! gained by the Conservatives. This However, there , was defection among the workers , themselves. They were expected to stahil solid behind the labor man, in' North Lethbridge particularly. This^ wafe the greatest disappointment of the campaign 'to the Labor party. They were defeated in what they considered their own safe strongholds. . Tickled Over Tt The band -v^ss 1 called ^iiltp play when the news of i)r.. Stewart's victory became known, and, the Conservative camp playeil the game to the limit. Dr. Stewatt was raised ,on the shoulders of his supporters and was forced to make a speech before their enthusiasm would be satisfied. ^ J. 0. Jones, the Labor candidate, mvaded the halls 6f the victors when the report became'known. He went to the Conservative committee rooms to congratulate Dr;' Stewart on his great win, and received a great ovation for this action^ . The Socialists did not,celebrate. The Herald's Bulletins It was in front of the Herald building that attention was centred. Instead of publi-shiug its: usual "Extra", the Herald tried an innovation. Supfc., Reid, of the electrical depart-meiit, was engaged to throw the results on a big screen opposite the Herald office as they .were received over the teiegraph and , telephone. The scheme was entirely sucoesstul and those who iiave seen.election r'e^ turns displayed in; large' cities stated that they had never seen anything done better, or anything more enjoyed by the public.  The's evening was fine, which added to the pleasure derived by the thousand or more people who kept coming and going in front of the ofilce. The . "Herald is greatly indebted to Mr.aReid for the excellent manner m whfch.he carried out .his end of the evening's en'oy ment, and also to Mr. C, B, Bow-mta and Mr. Newlands, the owner and^ tenant of tiie building on' v?hich the "big;''Soreen ^vas placed;' It was after t^nv o'clock before' "Grood Night" was-flashed on tho canvas; ,At that,time-the.returns in m'S6;rtiraiia^Jn"\l;Tie'"mt'rt!oristitu-'-enoies -was known, anti';th'e crowd hid the assurance that Sifton-had been rfeturried.ithevwiilner. It is'reported; that the band i AVhich sliould have hcen playing ,tor tiie premier in his hour of triumph, played the Dead March when the Herald flashed - on the screen, ''The band is now playing for Sifton."

April 18.-At three oo'lock this fifternoon the poU, In this riding stood 173 in favor of Spen^ cer. Conservative, with .seventeen-south country- polls to hear;i.from. Hon. Mr. Mitchell still had,,hopesyof pulling through if the vote-was polled. It will be sometime; itomorrow before the outlying polls oau - be heard from. Some of the polls like Altorado and Many Berries were expected to give 'substantial maj6ritles. herta. There were a few surprises in the province, but not many. Ex-Prcmier Rutherford is defeated in Strathcona, and there is little doubt but many staunch Liberals there, either retrained from voting or voted against him. Tliere is talk of ugl-/ work in Macleod and Pincher Creek, and protests will likely follow. Elsewhere the. vote was comparatively clean. In Little Bow James Mc-Naughton took his opponents' m'ea-sure in great style, while in Claresholm Mr, \Vm. Moltatt won one of the, most notable victories in tho province. Martin WooU won out in a hard light in Cardston, and is receiving deserved congratulations. It looks uncertain in Medicine Hat, but Hon. C. U. Mitchell fnlt confident this mortiing that the country polls would save him. Such staunch Liberal polls as .'Vltorado and Many ' Berries are yet to be heard from. J. M. Crlendenning won a magnificent victory in Nanton. In Gleichen John P, MoArthur laid George McBlroyi low, and in Bow Valley (3eorge Lane , took Harold Riley's deposit. Mr. . Piugle carried Hedcliite hy a large ; majority. The south .certainly did ' nobly for the Liberals.
