Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 28, 1911, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbridge Daily Herald Volume IV. Monday, August 28, Number 217 SIFTONAND BUCHANAN AT THE MAJESTIC TOMORROW NIGHT RECIPROCITY MEETING AT MAGRATH 1 elling Speeches in Favor of Buchanan and the Pact Magratb, Aug. more th eitiMns of Magrath and dislrict tun given an uncontrovcrtiblo demonstr tiou of their strength in support the reciprocity pact entered into b twcen Canada and the United Stale nd the magnificent'reception accon ed the Liberal candidate and Ills a last Saturday evening, show beyond the least shadow of doul the sentiments of the peopl lies. The champion of reciprocity i this constituency, A. Bnehanai v-as given the most enthusiastic llear -ing of any political candidate that ha evor visited iMagrath, and was per haps one of the most gratifying meet Ings since he commenced hte trlum phar march through the Medicine Ha riding. Mr. Buchanan's speech was a masterly effort, and it is said that was one of the finest in the campaign thus far. His broad ant statesmanlike utterances brough forth long and prolonged applause Although he was suffering from slight cold, his address was none the less effective, and he gave the flimsy arguments advanced by the oppon- ents of reciprocity such a terrible Wow that the result of the polling In this district on the 21st of Sept. is now nnciuestioned, the wavering minority having .been now converted to the great scheme of greater Can- CHILDREN SHOT AT MEDICINE HAT ado. The meeting wa-a presided over by the prealdent .of the Liberal execu- tive, F. -H. Turner. Long before the time of meeting the large auditorium or the Central school was fell filled, and before meeting progress long it was the audience was made tip principally of farmers who had assembled to hear "the.other side" of the great question confronting the electorate of the Do- mlnio'n, and the interest and enthus- iasm that was manifest clear- ly that they were now unalterably in favor of the agreement and support- era of the government'candidate, W. A. Buchanan. On the platform be- sides the candidate were S. J. Shep- herd and H. Ostlund, of Lethbridge, .1. J. Head, D. H. Blngham, Ben. Mat- kin and other prominent local men. In a short speech Mr. Turner intro- duced tho-'flnit speaker, S. J. Shep- lierdxVho was well received. Mr. Shepherd delivered most telling ad- dress in which he proved conclusive- ly that the statesmen of -both parttes had favored and openly advocated re- ciprocity with the United Ststes for sixty years. He went Into the HIMcrlenl Record Of the commercial relations with the United States and this country, show- Ing that Canada had flourished under a reciprocal agreement with the U. S. and that it was one of the planks of the Conservative party until R. L. Uorden became, loader of the opposi- tion. For some reason It had then been eliminated from the platform of the party. Quotations were given from speeches delivered by Sir John A. Macdonald. Sir John Thompson end Sir Charles Tupper, in which all of these distinguished Canadians and Conservatives favored such a pact. had supported the scheme that Is Miw in tho hands of the electors of Cnaada. These men were not like the leaders of the Conservative parly today, who had changed in a night. Tile Tories were opposing reciprocity Because it would not be In the inter- of the nioniod classes of the east, who now evidently control policy, yes. the very body and soul of the once great Conservative party. The trusts are frightened, and now is the Hour for the farmers of Canada to show their strength. Coming down to the real nature .of the agreement Mr. Shepherd explain- ed tho various points, emphasizing the things of Most interest to the farm-re. He pointed out the many benefits they would derive from Pact of such a character. He showed that the Price of Wheat would be higher, giving from Severn] j.'jtpers to corroborate Nils statement. They would also re- ceive cheaper tr.-ijsporlallon. belter fading nnd a closer market. It would sfve a new market, in addition to those already used by the Canadian producer. Competition is life of liuslnees, and this pact was simply a business proposition lo the farmers thv west. Mr. Shepherd also dwelt (Conliiiifd on paie Medicine Hat, Aug. gun In the hands of i'lillip Vol- man, a Roumanian only a few weeks In tho country, acciilen- tally discharged mid aliot his two children, ajw-d 11 and f> respectively, so that they died in a few minutes.
