We d'dn't want to be in doubt to what kind ot a man we are electing la Leth- bridge, 'iff.' Pack mey be all right, rlgat hw we. don't know. don't know very much; about him. do know Mr. Buchanan, However. We do know that durlhg the years has represent- ed ai Ottawa he hae nerei broken a'single pledge he made to bis consti- tuents, and that- he can bouu out In tbe full light of day with a retort sec- ond to none in the Dominion parlia- ment. I am neither Liberal nor Con servalivc, hut labor man out and out. I say, and say It boldly, that no labor member of parliament of country or of any country on God's earth for that matter, hw ever worked more onaclentlously and sincerely for the 'Orkera than Mr. Buchanan has done, ftien I say workers, I include farmers f course. When that awful strike ol nine 'workers, was going on In B.CJ. years ago and the matter was ronght up in parliament at Ottawa, fr. Buchanan made a speech In refer- nee to It Did hi speak in behalf of he wealthy mine No, he poke up for the workers, condemning he government for allowing the min- ers to be shot down like dogs, aad urg- ng the government to, take over the mines until the strike was settled. Again, Then the 0. P. R. employees hroughouC Canada to. go m strike for higher wages, Mr. Bu- chanan made aaother. speech. Was he oo. the of the C.P.R.t to, oa the of the work- era, demanding a Irving' wage for tbe ol Oaneda.

How it that Laurter people penlstently Ig- nore the fact that Sb- Wilfrid Laurler haa.always frowned upon any really progresslre that would bene- fit the and not the cUues.
