If the vote is adverse to_ the Government it will indicate that the .faith, and ambition exercised by- the Government .for the city .is not shared, and that the'citi- zens do not appreciate the importance of their city as a trade and develop- ment centre. The prosecution of this railway pol- icy means much to Lethbridge. It means not only better, accommoda- tion, more direct service and compe- tition xin .'-rates, 'but- also the increase of the city's population as "Lethbridge is bound to be the important southern divisional, centre." .The extent oi these-divisional works in a place of- ten depends .upon tie city baa with the powers that control.!

Having beerf requested by a large number of the electors of this dis- trict irrespective of party politics to myself as a candidate at the general elections to be held in the province on the' 22nd inst, I have de- cided: to accede to their request and offer mj-self as an independent can- didate and I now bespeak the hearty support of all classes. Through-long residence and travel in- different parts of I" the 'district 1 have: become intimately acquainted with the mrkms needs of all classes and I therefore believe that without being egotistical, --I-- COJQ say thai I have the and ability to properly represent.-this constituency in the Provincial The. present Governmeni-lias admin- istered the -affairs of 'the' province during the past; four years very cred- itably: giveji .the people "a great deal of sane legislation.--.And as..evidence'.'.of this Imightmention the workmen's compensation act, the eight-hour bank: act, tJie mechanics' lien actand? sev- eral others. The platform, announced by ..the.. Conservative party has also many good suggestions which I hope to see upon our statuto books at an early date. '-For mys I may- say thaj I stand first, last and always for legislation': that 'will protect the .rights of working men throughout the pro- vince. I also stand for improved leg- islation regarding our cities, towns' and villages, and a thorough, up to date system of public schools where the children: can obtain ran .education, that will better prepare them for the duties of good citizens, I be- lieve Slsb that more "nioney should be spent in putting our highways in proper condition ior travel. may say. in conclusion that I stand ior the disfranchising of people of the Asiatic race, such Japs and Chinamen. These people take no interest in our institutions and they-should not be given the franchise and I pledge my- self if elected to .introduce at the first session of-the Legislature, -a measure to deprive them of this right, also to .prohibit tHeir- employment, in or around the? coaL mines of "the pro- vince. Upon the above grounds and many others too numerous to mention, in a address, I appeal- to the- elec- iors of Eacky Mountain. District as an independent candidate for their hearty support, no matter what their political leanings may he and I prom- ise if returned as their .member that the interests of all classes and all parties wilL be. faithfully, impartially and conscientiously respected by me Dated, this 2nd day of Angus McDonald.
