U-rests. RIVERS AND THE LETHBRIDGE DISTRICT The Kutherford railway policy is the promise of the satisfaction of the greatest needs of the electors of the Lethbridgt- "rural constituency. The crying need of the people north of the city has been railway facili- ties ;uid the people of the south have known the necessity of railway coni- petiti'ua. The Rutherford railway policy if endorsed by 'the people means satisfaction of both these needs. The plan proposes to tra verse the north country %vith two main lines with two branches to tin westward. These in addition to th lines to built by the C- P. K. wil srive the people both railway facil PRACTICAL POLITICS The electors of Leihbridge in this election are up agpinst a business proposition. The Government has outlined a policy in which Lethbridge figures very largely and the people of this city must show by .their vote? iiies in abundance and competition whether or not they want that policy carried into effect. The Government has no other way of knowing the wishes of ,the people and they will trust .to that verdict. The Govern- ment proposes to guarantee the bonds of two great railway systems to come to Lefchbridge with their main north and south lines. If the electors by their votes say that they do not want that. policy carried out, the Rutherford railway policy? the thought. Perish as well. Xor will tine lines stop a Lethbridpe. The Grand Trunk Pa cific und the Canadian Northern ar> Government can hardly he expected to gp against- the -vris-hes of the peo- ple and put the railways here in spite of their expressed wish. The fate of Lethbridge as a railroad and indus- trial centre depends to a xery large extent upon the mandate of the peo- ple here 'on election day. -In con- sideration of this fact all other is- sues sink into insignificance and are hardly worth considering. The carry- ing out of Rutherford railway policy 'means the" welfare of every citizen: of- Lethbridge, be he business- man; financier, workingman or what- ever he may be, Lethbridge in its own interests and in .the interests of the surrounding country, should, and .no doubt will, stomp of its .approval iipon the policy of the Gov- ernment by electing as its represen- tative a straight, supporter of the Government.: other will do for the city at the. present, juncture. THE WORKWOMAN'S CHOICE The question that every working- man in this city must ask himself be- fore the. election day is: Can my in- terests he better served by an inde- pendent labor man in opposition or by a member who is a supporter o; the Government? As far as the workingman's terest is concerned "he "can give no thought to the. Conservative candi- date; who, from, the very nature of the .if elected, he would be a member of an insignificant Op- position with nothing to offer the workingma n in. .the way of legislation or support, would not be in a posi- tion to farther the workingman's in- terests in the House.- Hence? -with the it rests between the independent labor. candidate and the gcrvernment -candidates as to his choice. What is the best the labor candi- date could do if elected? He can call the attention of the House to phases 'of "legislation that concern the problem of labor. He can intro- duce as ,a private member bills to benefit the workingman. But that is "as far as he can go. If the Govern- ment does not care to take his advice in, legislation, he has no influence with them to demand further legisla, tion. He is not in a position to in- fluence the members of the Govern- ment or, of the ruling party so as to -secure their support for his measures. He is powerless unless the Govern- ment chooses to give him their sup- port. Such is not the case with, the Gov- ernment supporter. He has the ear of the members of the Government and of the members who form the ma- jority-of the House. He is in a po- sition of influence being situated so that ,he can insist on his "Views be- adopted. The Government mem- ber, therefore, knowing that in an industrial city, he must depend on the workingmen for a large measure of liia "support at the next election, trill QTJ the adoption of such as to .zofc portiSn of his eonstiiueufe, even1 if the Government be opposed, which condition does not exist at the capi- tal. The Government has by its legislation and administration proved its sympathy with the interests of the wprkingotan. The. Government candidate' in the city has advocated by example and precept, legislation and administration .favorable to the beat interests of the wcrkingman and can be depended upon to carry out the same course 93 a member of the legislature. But even if his sym- pathies were the other way, the rery nature of hte- constituency would po- litically compel him to do bin best to win the support of so large a of electors.

This? is the policy that Dr. River as the Government candidate for elec tion in the Lethbridge -district stand for. II the constituency elects him th Government will believe that the peo pie want their policy 'carried out. Bu should they not elect him, which i a long stretch of imagination, the Government will accept their-verdic as a desire not to have the policy o railway construction carried out. The electors are wise, enough to their owi interests to know that they eanno possibly he served better in. anj other way -than by supporting tin Government candidate, who in thii election' is the popular mayor f- Raymond, Dr. Rivers. In addition tr> his .qualifications o being a supporter- of an excellent Gov eminent with an excellent, policy Dr.. Rivers has the additional cmaliii cation, of being a most excellent and capable man. He has always shown a. devotion to the interests of-the com nmniiy in which he-lives and is .al ready well acquainted with the lif and needs of the people of his con srituency. By birth and' training a practical farmer, and being during the years his residence in Raymond engaged in farming as welt as prac tising his profession, Dr. Rivers is splendidly qualified and equipped to be the representative of a rural con siituency. -He.'is-a pleasing and con- vincing can be trustee by the people .whose suffrage he seeks look after their interests both in the. House of Assembly and out of it. J. W. WOOLF, CANDIDATE The nomination of J. W. Woolf by .the Liberal convention at Card-stem yesterday is a source' of' gratification not- only-to the bulk of the Liberal party- in that rldiiig -but to a very large portion of the general public are .not. strong partizans. Daring the whole, of the time .that he has been the .-representative of his con- stituency both at Regina in the Ter- ritorial Assembly and at Edmonton as a member of :the provincial Parlia- ment, Mr. Woolf has been. a consist- ent .and persistent advocate of; the rights and needs of- his ISTo member could have been more faithful to the trust reposed in Mm by an electorate and his efforts have been a large factor in placing the Cardston district in the high place it holds in the public eye. There is no doubt but ..what .the electors. ihe Cardston will remember the success of JVfr. Wooll's .efforts, in their behalf and vote on -election day, so as to place him in the posi- tion to continue the-grod work he -has carried on as a member cf the Legislative Assembly.

Marks, with his all-favorites stock company is in the city again for a week's engagement at the .Lyceum Theatre. ..La'st night, they opened the week with a play entitled, the "Hpo- crite" one of their popular repertoire- of plays, to a "crush" house.

One of "the features of last night's performance a song by 3r0ss Millie between acts. She rrniated the singing of a child, a SCK praan, and a 'baritone, .each with fair- ly .startling likeness, as. she changed her voice from one. to the other. The illustrated song proved as pop- ular as ever, and is a. decided success as a between-act eniertainraent. Tom the funny -old chap, who couldn't be anything but funny if he tried, appeared last, night as a negro attendant, and the mirth his own natural wifc produced was much aud hearty. He is one of ..the come- dians that don't have to "try" to win. .'applar.se.

Ford Street, beside Palace Livery Having bt'ou requested by a large number of the electors of tlus dis. trict ive of party politics to offt-r myself as a candidate at the general elections to be held in the province un the 22nd inst, I have de- cided to .accede to their request and offer myself as an independent- can- didate and I now bespeak the hearty support of all classes. Through long residence and travel in different parts of the district'I have become .intimately acquainted with the various needs of all classes and I therefore believe that being egotistical, I can say that- I have the qualifications and .ability to properly represent this constituency in ihe .Provincial Legislature. The present Government has admin istered of the province during the four years very cred itably and it has given the people i great deal of sane legislation. Anc as evidence of .this I might mention the workmen's compensation act, the eigbt-hoxir.bank to bank (for.miners) act, the mechanics' Ken act eral others. The platform. by the. Conservative party has also many good suggestions which I hope to see upon our statutr- books-at an early date. For myssxf, I may say that" I stand 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- towns and villages, and a thorough up to date system .of .public schools where ihe children can-obtain an education that will better prepare them for the duties of good citizens. I be lieve also that more -money shoulc be spent in putting-.our. highways in proper .condition for travel. -I may say in conclusion that I stand for the disfranchising.of..people of the Asiatic race, such as and t 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 firsl I session of the a measure to deprive tbera 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 short address. I -appeal :to "the elec tors of Kaeky Mountain District as an independent candidate .for.: their hearty support, :no matter what their political leanings.may be and ise -if returned as their .member tha the interests of alT classes and--all parties will be faithfully, .impartiallj and conscientiously .respected by'me Dated at Blairmbre this 2nd day o; March. 1909. .-John.
