However, and probably quite unln-i tenUonVlly, a somewhat wrong Impression has been given as to my attitude with reference to representation, through a telegram sent by me to Mr. Wood. President of the United Farmers of Alberta which is quoted by Mayor Hardie as follows: "Alberta has decided not to send delegates to the convention; see Mayor Hardie of Lethbridge and Mr. Cousins of Medicine Hat who are en route to convention, and advise them that they and you must govern yourselves accordingly." The telegram actually sent, following full enquiries as to what other districts In the prairie provinces were doing, reads as follows: "Owing apparent failure other districts prairie provinces to appoint really representative delegates to National convention It was finally decided to send none from Southern Alberta.
