Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 22, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta TAGE TEN7 THE LETIIBRinr.E DAILY HERALD FRIDAY, DECEMBER 22, 1910 S FIRST LIBERAL CABINET HON. M. A. MACDONALD Attorney General. 7From tho Victoria Times.) Hon. John Oliver, minister of aBri culture and minister, of railways 1 one of the se.iior members 01 tho new having been electul o that bodv first in 1900. Ho is in horn in Hurtuigtoj.

Mr Oliver went to B. C. over thlrt> tears since, settling in tho Delta 01 the Fraser. There ho has brought under cultivation a fine farm, the IK. live management of which, is now m the hands of of his sons. 1-le hv always taken an active inte-cst iu jmblic life, municipally pthcrw se He has been' a.councillor for years i reeve for several terms, and m the legislature his career has been ono to be proud of. Hon. Mr. Oliver is essentially a tri- bune of the people, arm his ever been raised in defence of the principles of democratic govcrnmen He was one of tue keenest of crit c whether in tie Housh out of t and to the defeated premier in par- ticular he was persona non grata on that account. It is common knowl- edae that Sir Richard JIcBride would lavs been willing to allow his elec- tion in Yale after the election ol 1S09, but that Mr. Bowser was afraid to have him in the legislature. Of late years Mr. Oliver has been carrying OE a contracting business, of his knowledge of mecnauics and his hard-headed common-sense have helped him to make a success. There is no man in the province whj Snows more about its politics than lio does, or is SB-roaversant with every phase of the happenings or Uic .last "twenty years and the sayings of every public man who has taseu part In them in that time. He is an ex- pert on House procedure, and there is no former speaker of the House can hold a candle to him in that Shortly before tho election of 1903 the then leader of the party, J. A. Macdonald K. C., was appointed chief justice of the new court of appeal, and Ifr Oliver was chosen as leader of the party in his stead. He remained in that position until 1913, but his clever visioa and sound judgment on all nublic questions and on matters of policy have always been freely at the service of his leader and the party. In 1909 and 1912 he contest- ed his old seat. Delta, but for tie recent general election he aecepted a nomination from the hands of the Liberals of Dewdney. There he was elected by a substantial majority. Hon. M. A. Macdonald Hon. Malcolm Archibald Macdon- ald, attorney-general, has been Mr. Brewster's first lieutenant in effect, as be now will be in fact, since the premier was chosen as leader of the -party. At the same convention at which Mr. firewater was elected leader Mr. Macdonald was elected to succeed him as president of the Pro- vincial Liberal Association. The new attorney-general is of the came fine his leader, and is sprung from -Highland Scottish na- cestry, inheriting a'l the sterling characteristics of the race. His standing in the opinion of his con- stituents of Vancouver was sluwn by his striking victory over the iiien minister of public works, C. B. Tib- flail, last February, and he was again returned at the head of the, poll in September by a majority of over Mr. Bowser, in spita of the ma- lignant and vindictive attacks which fc'ad been msde upon him.
