Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 18, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta fi- Kow, what in the name of al has occurred to down the' wrath of Mr. W. C. And why .did'not thfi worthy alder- man come to the rescue of "-.the union men in city some time ago when aflectinf their were concerned? And' what late the. Clay has tov change his mind? these are questipns which I have no; doubt he can answer to the satis- thAt.thtt Ubor has t right to know what cijl a candidate Btandi fpr and naturally Ives? I deiirie" to wKat Mr. meant by stating that he' had turned down, Tory; tidies tod then aeoepted derj; the cuiw ol j'lndepgwient.'' In conclusion, I would like to point out to Mr, all those.who have any doubt oif this 'subject, that KO far as the Editor of the Herald is concerned, I am a free lance, and am To the 'new' Council I extend ths the Dominion ojf Canada. The and' Labor Congress of Canada are issuing a Convention call to the officers and members of Trades and Labor National Unions, Federal Labor Unions and International local Unions in the Dominion of Canada. In part it reads as The local Brewery Workers local are to hold a smoking concert, in the Trades and Labor Temple on Sat- urday the Needless to say thjaj will be a dandy smoker, and every- j body should make a point of taking it in. I am led to understand that this is to. be the last word so far us concerts are concerned aiid I believe it." Color, Flavor, Fragrance are the strong of In answer. to the letter to the Her- ald of .Tuesday of this week I think Alderman is away There is ho one' in this is more ready to recbgnite the progressive spirit of the council than I am but I wish to point out to W. C; lyes that if 'he hud 'had the interests of 'the working men of the city at heart he would have seen that the clause pro- faction o! the workmg-men to express my. views at all tiuaea and-more especially as a la- boring man. As I have over and over .again, it shall be my endeavor', while we have no labor government; to "deal with both political parties with the same impartial spirit, and while in the meantime I am of the opinion that I have; a kick to register against his party, yet Mr. Ives can console Siimself with' the fact that when his party does something for. the labor- ing men he will assuredly find ihe editor of this column the first to er tend the glad hand.

But perhaps-ilx; Ives. has another election; in. view.- Lwish to point out net only to the -writer of the letter in Tuesday's Her- al to other member, of the council .that.the labor men-want their interests protected but they .are .nbfr'-v so slow as to 'recognize when a bid is- made f or i their support arid, when an-, honest effort is being made to loot after their interests.

In a short conversation he stated amongst other things that the better the towns 'and cities were organised the better the conditions were. He spoke for this city a great future. Compara- tively speaking he thought there was more work being done here than in any of the. other cities and towns had visiteH in the West, but was not surprised to bear that. were still plenty of unemployed. Ho ad- dressed the local Brotherhood in the evening. September 7th. You will all know what that means. Might I suggest to the various affiliated and uruimiiaieu, the uesirauilicy 01 ing Labor Day something to be re- membered. Let every local take the matter, in hand at once, and see what they can. do to make this day a great success. Something novel in the; way of floats for the procession would be a good idea.
