Andcrton, Cardston Cardston, July 24th of July is distinctively a ''Mormon" holiday. It marks the anniversary of the entrance into the Valley of the Great Salt Lake of those sturdy pioneers of 1847 who blazed the way for the great migration westward to the Pacific when the gold sxcltenoent followed. These were-largely, men of the. old Puritan stock of New as esteemed religious liberty as of greater mo'meht than their own lives.- To celebrate this day fittingly is always a pleasant undertaking where the adherents of this denom- ination are to be found in sufficient numbers. At Ma grath this year no pains had been spared to make the day ,ipe- cial remembrance La the ininds and hearts of the people. So most of the Cardston citizens who had an opportunity of going anywhere chose to_ visit our sister town. Their anticipations were fully realized in the way of a good time.

MAGRATfl TALE TO LABOR MEN {Continued from Front bonus business out and he by giving some statistics regarding iuisugraiion to bear out his statement. His address wtn followed with -keen, interest, Mr. W. C. Ives upon motion of Messrs. Baldry and Eitchie, was ac- corded a hearing. He stated that when Mr. Magrath accepted the nom- ination they had bad a chat and he agreed to assist Mr. Ma- grath only after he had asked him some questions on matters dating back to ihe granting of the provin- cial autonomy. Mr. Magrath had stated hia willingness lo support Mr, in his efforts to give Alberta back her lands and to reform the civil service and also said that he did not believe in" the way the gov- ernment, was spending the people's money. He was accused of being an out and out Tory and so he was. He was not in 1896, for the Conservative party was so rotter, aiid should havp been put out and was put out. The Liberals had promised better government and the people had taken them at their word. He was chieuy interested in the future taxation of the province of Alberta. "Some day all the money needed in Alberta must be raised by direct taxation. He then devoted a good deal of time discussing the ad- vantages of having provincial con- trol of lands and' minerals claiming that the province gets not one five cent piece of all the mineral royal- ties and rentals. He spoke also of the timber and fisheries rigbte. Land had sold in .large tracts 'since 1896 at one .dollar per acre bu the settler had to pay'twelve to fifteen; dollars an acra. They sold the school" lands and gave the province what they pleased. He had seen a letter today stating that land at per acre in the Brown Maunsell ranch, had-bac-n bought and that if they ir- rigated per acre would be rebated, miking the net cost per acre for what they called "the best land out of doors." The restoration of the public lands to the province is of vital importance to the labor man and it is because R. L. Borden stands for. this ,that the speaker is a Tory. He then told the labor men that it was not in their, interests to retain the present "government longer in power. The reckless expenditure soon touch their pockets.

About 500 people were attendance and thoroughly enjoyed r baseball, hoarse races a'nd other forms'of am- usjenient provided. At last an effort is to be made to afford badly 'needed protection for the banlcs the creek flows through town. With every, flood that has occurred quite a portion of the bank on'the south side has been ed awny.' The high water of this spring necessitated the moving of a a number of buildings oil lots to- wards the west end of Main St., in prevent their being carried a it is very probable that another flood as serious as the last one would cause, ver3-; heavy damage nnd might result in the creek nppro.- priating a portion of the Main St. At a public meeting held some time ago it was decided to approach the Provincial Legislature with a view to obtaining financial assistance. As a. result- of the correspondence which ensued Mr. Jno.

He _said that instead of firing the on regarding conditions here, they should be asked Mr. Simni oris "as Is in pow- er and could right them if they are wrong. He wanted Mr. Simmons to be asked if he would accept as a member- of the legislature, the public lands if they were-offered the pro- vince. Mr. Magrath's modesty had kept him from stating that he was respon- sible for the enacting of the first coal mining legislation ever on the statute books of the west. Turning to the provincial school book contract he declared that the people were paying their money for the support of a scab employing pub- lishing house in New York. Discussing the Compensation Act, the speaker said that he wished to give the local member, Mr. Sim- mons credit for what ha had done to get that act, but that there were some things in -it that should be changed. In conclusion he again stated that he is a Tory- until the public domain is Alberta and as long as the party holds to its promises. He had voted against the party be- fore and could do it again. Jas. Barclay asked Mr. Ives if it were true in the provincial bye-elec- tion thai Conservatives had sent tele- grams to the party workers to get voters holding back their votes to vote? for Mr. Simmons, but "for God's sake to keep Sherman out."
