Olds, Alberta. to ihave the convention ert Patterson, is in the field as an independent. There were reports also of other men being put up "for nomination. But none of these ev- ents transpired, .although the utmost jerty_ was given to do so. After J. W. McDonald had been'el- ected chairman, and S. S.- Heap secre- tjhe .former briefly outlined the urpose of the convention. 'He said that .there was already one candidate n the field, but this convention .had not been called in any spirit of an- tagonism to 4he previous nominee. But foeen thought that the peo- le should be given a chance to say they wanted to have a regular upporter of the Sifton government, ne who would have the ear of the 'Overnment, and be in its confidence. The chairman deprecated any feei- ng of rivalry between the town and the country. The interests of both I are Identical, and the town and dis- trict alike are essentially agricultural in their'interests. The purpose of the convention was to nominate a candidate who, if elect- ed, would .give the Sifton government general support. To do this 'would not mean that he relinquished in any j -way his freedom of thought and ac- tion in. the matters of policy and ad- Only One Nomination. Having 'mentioned the legal qualifi- cations of the candidates who could J be nominated, the chairman called for nominations. The name of E. H. Maunsell was proposed in a neat speech by Peter Roberts, a Macleod farmer, who said that they had known Mr. Maunsell for many years, and were convinced that if he vcere elect- ed he would do the right thing. The nomination >was seconded by G. Pear- of 'Standoff, who is probably the biggest one-man farmer in ttoe dis- trict, being the owner of the Oxley ranch, and a storekeeper as well Af- ter waiting for a considerable time for more nominations which did not come, .the chairman declared Mr. Maunsell the unanimous nominee "of the convention Candidate's Address. The candidate's appearance on the platform was greeted with an enthus- iastic outburst of applause. He ex- the chairman remarked that the con- vention -was to toe congratulated on securing Mr. 'Maiiixfiell for their can- .didate, sand on ihaving such a manly statement of his position from him. They would do their .best to elect him and then he would have to look to it at Edmonton that lie did as he said. He expressed the --wish of Mr. Maun- sell and the Liberal Association that the campaign Should be conducted with no personal attacks or ill -win. He announced ,that Premier Sifton and! his colleagues :had promised to support the'nominee of the conven- tion. Meeting's .would be held in dif- ferent'parts of .the riding to which the opposition., "would -be invited, 'thereby affording an opportunity for joint meetings the .discussion of issues before the people. Sketch of .the Candidate. E. H.-Maunsell, the Liberal candi- date In the Macleod bye-election, is one of the oldest old-timers in Alberta. In 1874 he came from Ireland, and joined -force. At that time one of !the chief matters oc- cupying the attention of the police authorities" was that of signing up treaties with the Indians. In his ca- pacity as. assistant secretary to Com- missioner- French, Mr.' Maunsell had occasion to 'travel over practically the1 whole of the Canadian West In 1877. he" left the force and settled in the, Macleod district to engage in sfarming, being the first -large farmer in that part of .Alberta, Later went into .ranching also. In. both of these occupations he has very successful, and Has" become a wealthy man. Besides his farm where r-3 lives, he has a large ranch near. Gras sy Lake and another on the South Pie gan reserve. A year or so ago Mr.. Maunsell gav? up the active, management of his b :s- iness, 'When, therefore, his friends urged him to accept the nomination for the legislature he felt free to so. In doing so, it is jc.it from auy desire to seek honors ag he ha? ways been averse to public honors, but" rather from a wish co be doing something to further tha intc-r ests of Alberta, and Ms own uistrijt in particular. Mr. Maunsell is a plain man. He does not make any pretence to be a public speaker, but is a practical -bus- iness man whose strong characteris- tic Is his ability to do things. He is held in the highest esteem by all who know Mm, and those who have known the longest are those who res- pect him the most. He has .the Ir- ishman's humor and Is- a very sociable man.
