STAND BY GOVERNMENT There practically organized opposition to the Alberta Govern- ment irom the Conservative party in this campaign. Conservatives of tlu> type-, the men why Iwk from the of the and not from tho.-v of party, concede that the administration Hon. A. 0. JRutherford given thi< province clean and progressive, gov- ernment. They admit that it would be e.xtremely unwise to make any effort to defeat that administration, since the great of the people are satisfied with its work. The of. Lethbridge and other Southern Alberta constituencies want, to bear in mind that the Gov- ernment will be returned but morei than thai they want io-see-that the i Government is sent back with a bouncing majority, in order that Mr. Rutherford and his colleagues will understand that we are solidly be-; hind their railroad policy. Southern Albem wants -wants them badly. The Eutherforcl; Government--has''outlined a under which the south will be open-' ed up by new transcontinental roads.; Can the South afford to slap a Gov-1 eminent with such a great .policy, in i the face and return an opponent fo; that Government and that policy? j "As a matter of fact the people of! Alberta can very well afford to cast j political considerations aside and i support, the government, which dux- ing. four years -has given this province I wise and efficient administration.! and which, for the futtire, has out-; lined a policy that means more i towns, more settlers and more pros- i perity for Southern Alberta. i REMARKABLE PET BOOSTER Rutb. a small miss of West lirattleboro, Vt., lias as a pet on old! Leghorn rooster which, in many re-j. spects is a most remarkable fowl. By Lethbridge. i persistent traimuK its mistress has "i tauffh-t it tricks which greatly amuse' tho townsfolk and astonished those j who always' believed that have rio brains. Ruth has. named her pet Teddy, in! honor of President Roosevelt, and! takes great delight in putting him; through his paces. His first duty each luoniini; is to crow loudly out-; side his mistress' window, after which he waits patiently for her to arise.; After he has been fed.Teddy trots to a washbowl fiHed with warm water. hops in and stands quietly until he! has been thoroughly soaped, washed.: rinsed and dried with a hair brush- and jv crush towel. He is then ready; to show what he can do in the wav of tricks. Of all the stunts test, is playing I horse. Little Miss Premiss has a small doll cart made by her father, to which are attached a pair of wide-; spreading thrills. Between these; thrills Teddy backs and is fastened in': with ribbons. He then strides off os- trich like to the nursery, where the. cart is laden with dolls. The dolls; are now given an airinc on the puuza about tht- lawr, ,or down the road. when the weather is propitious. Ted- dy is guided by the gee and haw me- thod used with oxen.' The rooster has never been known to run away or overturn his York World.

It would foolish for Alberta io send, a leader-' 'f-r Lethbridge wants to get Into the band wagon of progress by returning to the Legislature a man who will hustle along the railroads to Leth- bridge. Support, the party that will the railways into the South. rush i The Liberal Government never made any promises "to pass labor leg- islation it has, passed neverthe- less 'some of the most advanced and helpful to be found in existence in any province. It'is-not "a Government of promises but of deeds. Raymond and Stirling electors) should hear Hon. Mr. Cross. He is a young and able administrator. The legislation he has placed on Alberta's', statute books during the past fewj years put the other provinces in thej shade, i What about organizing that Horti- cultural Socioty. The city certainly needs it. WILL HOLD MEETING! jbtlmonton, March meetings drranged so far ire Clifesholm on Saturday and MMteod on'Monday. Hon. Mr. iMVm and triii hold imttinn Lucombs, l, Ifadicim Rat Thunday, Friday -GOVERNMENT BRASS KNUCKLES "Canadian ways versus frank boldness is one of the problems of the statesman. Sir Wilfrid Lan- rier is the great exponent of the one system; Sir William Mullock and Sir James Whit- ney have given public exhi- bitions of the second. The lat- ter class has had added to it, the. Hon. C. W, Cross of Al- berta. He has recently pre- pared and brought into force a Workmen's Compensation Act. which follows the British system somewhat and fixes certain payments to be. made by the employers for iiijuries to The coal opera- tors ,who employ much labor in been.doing a considerable amount of ob- jecting; The other-, day Mr. Cross got angry because the coat operators had" begun to threaten. At an Edmonton meeting he turned on theni and warned them that if they went too far. the Government might consider the; advisabil- ity of going into the coal bus- iness as it has 'gone into the telephone business. Mr. Cross it will thus be seen, exhibits the same .spirit as did Sir James Whitney, when he, the other day, faced a depu- tation and plainly told them be was going on with the law reform whether they liked it or whether they did not. Ap- parently there are some of our statesmen who follow Davy Crockett's advice: "Be atire you are then go ahead: but ahead anyway." LETHBRIDQE '.OUut NO. M C. B, P. 0.
