Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 22, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta "WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 1917 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE FIVfl WRIG SOUTH WINNIPEG LIBERALS DENY 'N Wlnrdpog, Aug. 21.-Several thousand JJbornl doctors of South Winnipeg tonight enthusiastically ehocrurt declarations by various Piioakers, including Premior Norrl.'i, Attuniey-Oenoral Hudson and Isaac rithlndo, K.

We, therefore, desire to place ourselves on record as being unreservedly in favor of compulsory military service as well as compulsory contribution of wealth, believing as we do that only by such means can 'the maintenance and unimpaired I strength at the front of our fighting I forces' be assured." Do Not Endorse Laurier. The following resolution dealt with I the leadership of Sir Wilfrid Laurier: "We join with the recent Liberal convention in paying sincere tribute to the signal services Hint have been rendered to Canada by the Right Hon. Sir Wilfrid Laurier. Insofar as it was intended by the tribute to express tho. hope that his splendid gifts of mind and statesmanship would bo available for the settlement of the paramount issue now confronting Canada in a manner consistent with the nation't honor, it lias our approval. We, however, have noted with tho gravest concern and regret his, observations indicating that he is not In favor of conscription. There would, thereforo, be a want of candor and good faith upon our part if we permitted the belief to exist, either here or elsewhere, that while 'Sir Wilfrid Laurier has this view he can bo, under existing con> dltlons, our leader. "We, therefore, resolve that we will not support at the present crisis any leader who is not prepared to declare his acceptance of tho principlo of compulsory military service, as well as the compulsory contribution of wealth." National Government. "Deeply impressed as we are with the need of uniting all classes of the country in a common effort for the vigorous prosecution of the war, and believing that all electors should place this necosBlty abovo party politics or any other consideration; "Be it, therefore, resolved that dur-| ing the war a national non-partisan KIMOS ARE NOW N CALGARY COURT objective of bringing out as a candid ale in South Winnipeg (if an election is unavoidable, and wo express the hope that it may be avoided) some suitable person who will unocpiivocal-ly endorse the views of this meeting." The chairman, amid loud cheering, pointed out that this was tho moHt important resolution of all. for it provided tho machinery essential to wincing a union win-the-wnr candidate in tho field for South Winnipeg. A Big Meeting. The meeting was held in the great convention hall of tho Industrial Bureau. South Winnipeg, with an electorate on the Dominion franchise of over 30,(JO() regards itself as one of the pivotal constituencies of the west. Ex-Mayor R. D. Watigh acted as chairman, and A. E. Howies, a local I barrister, secretary of the meeting. Mr. Waugh in opening the meeting f said he was not going to say anything about tho late Liberal convention held in the same hall. Tho present was not a machine-made meeting, but a mooting of citizens freely gathered together to discuss serious public questions. Solid Western Group. -Manitoba Liberals, said Premier Morris', havo not yet abandoned the idea of a solid western group. But if that was impossible of attainment the next best thing would be a national government which would havo the authority to enforce conscription. It was the duty of all Canadians to do what they could to form a national government and to form it at once. The present Conservative government had failed in its task. Influence should long ago have been brought to bear on Sir Robert Borden to form a national government. But it was too late. Laurier had refused to come into such a government. "I have nothing more to say," said Premier Norris, "except that our loader having failed us, 1 am now ready to support Sir Robert Borden in tho formation of a national government pledged to win-the-war." (Prolonged applause.) Whatever mistakes had been made in the past it was up to the citizens of western Canada to forget them for tho moment and to unite for a national government. He was willing to join hands with anyone prepared to work to that end. Sir Robert Borden had shown his sincerity by offering to retire if that would facilitate the object of them all. Suggests Sir Adam Beck. Incidentally, and amid great applause, Premier Norris mentioned tho name of Sir Adam Beck as big enough and trusted by them all tor such a heavy responsibility. Calgary.

It was at once unique, Important and historic. It was with the idea of showing that Eskimos are subject to white man's laws that tho trial was being proceeded with, and to ensure safety of white men who may journey to the far north in future years. Retributary justice, which has heretofore prevailed in the land of the Ksklmos, must be stamped out, and Mr. McCaul said it was with the intention of inflicting punishment which would ai once art as a deterrent and example Id the;;e people that, tho al-l"god murderers were brought a distance of some 22110 miles to be tried.

When Phllo McCullough, who plays the hero, swam out to the cask to rescue tho child he found lisr sputtering indignantly. "What's the matter, Marie," ha asked, "are you scared?" "Not a bit,"; was the response. "But these nasty waves jump into my mouth and I don't' like the taste of the water. It tastes just awful, Phllo!"
