OVATION Ferhie Liberal Candidate Tells of Some Very Raw Deals By Bowser Gang (Special to the Fernie, Aug. rousing rijl- ly in the interest of Mr. A. I. fisher was beld at Waldo Friday night, when, nearly a hundred people turned out to hear the next member for Fernie die- cue a thu vita) Issues of the campaign. Mr. Fishar did not (irs and si-ored a bull's eye in his strong condemnation of the Bowser government. of the tilings which Mr. Fisher made clear to man- ner in which the government handled, In .its inception and its Wecutioiilljlie Farm Loan Act. The government's 'own made in the house during the 'late Sjgsi' iiion shows that tliB.v-Jiave .-marketigfi' one million of the bonds voted.for thfifc, purpose, having to make a sacrifice of 15.28% which netted the fund a little less-'than These'Jaj-fti loan be .the .best ity that is now being presented io'the'1 investing public, but what a goveniniGJil statements are reliable. -Four yearH ago govern- went reports showed u surplus of u miljibn dolJnte. while lust voar there ft total deficit ot uvor eighteen mtl- is to be increased this year'by some five millions. All this .tiering of provincial revenue had taken pla-ge during the last four years, or whlle''Hhe, provincial government had been -'.under ''the domination of the jireeent premier, Mr. Bowser. Mr. Bowser claims that he iB now tie hefid of a business government, bijt.if these figures, shown by his own are a sample of the busi- ness to be expected from the present of wiiitn Mr. Bowser is still the ruling spirit, how do the.peo- ple of this district like the prospect? Judging.from the response elicited by these. roaaarkB, they don't like it n little bit. The attempt to hoodwink the people by telling them that ihe deficits shown represent monies ex- pended public works was Hke rubbing it in on the people of this district where there is little to show as publlV'works expenditures for the last three or four In connection with the enormous in- crease and expenses Mr. Fisher cited the case of two members of the house who were on the provincial pay rolls in a dual capacity. Each of these two members.of the leg- slulureih'aoV been drawing twenty dol- B a day a'nd ten dollars for expenses, conflict with the constitu- ,al law of the province which dls- :tly states that a member of the louse cannot draw government pay in any other? capacity. Mr. Bo'ws'er has !ois of nerve, hut whi H second vote of six millions, which in to be only half or the amount needed to finish the remainder of the road; this latter vote being .by the legisla- ture wlthqut any authority vented In them-by .the voters. No one should wonder ac.tionB from BUUII u goyernment. but It will be a world's wonder If the people of this province will .return to power a government which u bus ad Its power, so flag- rantly Its own lawn, mid HO disregarded the real interest of the province by its squandering of the as- sets and revenues of the province. Mr. Fisher received the closest at- tention of his audience and wan fre- quently cheered. Mr. Wm; Robsqii spoke briefly, dwelling upon toe incpiisiiUenuy of Mr. Uphill in his "position of Conservative candidate, while at the same time pos- ing as a wurkingmun's candidate. Mr. was unconditionally a Bowser candidate, having burned his bridges behind him he accepted the nomination a Conservative con- vention and having at the same tinio offered to support any other man the convention might think would he a better party representative than him- self- Mr. Robson.- ilso -took occasion to refute the, claim set.jip by1 Mr. Uphill und his tlmt ho would get al- most all the miners' votes. This might have been the main argument which induced the demoralized Conservative camp to take him in as a forlorn hopo, but arranging to get any set of men's votes by such prearranged methods would prove a very difficult bargain to execute. The Bowser government In thorough- ly discredited among the miners and no candidate, however thick, could hide the Bowser shadow from view. Alderman Jackson, ot Kernle, also spoke briefly and went after Ipie Con- servative candidate upon his record as Mayor of telling .his hearers that Mr. Uphill was a man hard to place upon the matter of public inter- The entire meeting was a singular demonstration of the change that has come over this district since Mr, Fish- er ran as a Liberal candidate against W. H. Ross and John Harrington in 1910. At that time Mr. Fipher recelv- id scarcely any support: at. Waldo, vhile today he lias an almost solid behind him at that place.
