A. Buchanan will not be associat_ ed with the editorial work of the Her- ald, which will be conducted by other members of the siaff. THE GOVERNMENT AND THE COMPENSATION ACT of the Government in locating way it got very busy and 'nounced with great flourish what it called the Herald railway policy. Then when the Government made the announcement of its completed plans, the Herald pays the highest compli- ment it could to itse'if and makes the closest agreement possible with the Government by that the Gov- ernment had taken its policy. But now that the elections are on and the Government is asking to be return- ed, largely on the strength of that very policy, the Herald can have no good word to say either of the Government or the policy. If the Herald honest- ly believed that it is in the best in- terests of the Province, why does it allow the party whip to make it op- pose the Government? Truly its much boasted and widely advertised inde- pendence is a myth and a delusion. There is no paper in Canada more wedded to its party than this profess- edly independent journal. Skin Diseases.

Their course has won the general approval of the majority of the labor leaders of the province: It is not many weeks since the labor Donald McNab, gave the 'Act as a, whole his sanction at the miners' convention in thfg city.

NO OPPOSITION FROM LETH- BRIDGE Some of the so very patriotic people of the.city and province are putting forth the argument in favor of the Opposition candidates, that the Gov- ernment, requires a strong Opposition. They are magnanimous enough to ad- mit that the Government will be re- turned .to power but their .fears are that the majority will be too large. For this reason each and every con- stituency is urged to elect a member whose duty it will be to keep the Gov- ernment straight. That sounds pa- triotic and plausible. But what Vould happen if all the constituencies or a majority of them took their advice? The Government which they adroit has done such excellent work and has such a splendid policy outlined would be defeated. 5-" The Herald has faith enough in the solidarity of the Province of Alberta to -believe that the best interest of any one constituency is .the best in- terest the whole province. It be- lieves that the interests of the Pro- vince would be better served by elect, inf _every jnesaber-s'Government sup- porter than by defeating the Govern- ment. The absence of outside Oppo- sition would give an independence vithin the Government ranks that otherwise might, be absent. The Herald believes, however, that- whatever constituencies may do, Lethbridge cannot take any chances on being a party to the frus- tration of the policy outlined by the Rutherford Government. Let others follow other gods but the Government faith shall be our faith and policy our policy. OUR POINT OF VIEW Does any voter honestly and sin- cerely hope to see the Rutherford Government defeated? If not, -why vote for an Opposition candidate? He should think seriously" of the con- sequences. before party sho.uld_be the motto of every elector in Lethbridge city on election day. Is it good bus- isess to vote against the Government at the present time? The businessmen of the city can better be -served by a. Government member than by an Opposition mem- ber. The worJringmau's interests mil receive stronger support from the Government if presented by one of their supporters w.ho has always shown a tangible and sympathetic in- terest in the than by a labor member who has not got the ear of the Government. Take it all round, the whole people could be better served by a membr of the Gov- ernment party than by any other. PRICES I Direct from Mill to Consumer f To Those Interested in We are now ready to -fill orders for Lumber, Shingles, Doors, etc, in Carload Lots DIRECT TO FARMERS, CONTRACTORS, etc.. Gculk'Hif u: Having boeu requested by a large number of the of this trict irrespective of party politics to offer myself as u candidate at the general elections to be held in the province on the 22nd inst, I have de- cided to accede to thek request and offer myself ae an independent can- didate and I now bespeak the hearty suppfnt 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 without being egotistical, I can say that I have the qualifications and ability to properly represent this constituency in the Provincial Legislature. The present Government has admin- istered the affairs of the province, during the past four years very cred- itably and it has given, the people a great deal of sane legislation. And as evidence of this I might mention the workmen's compensation act, the eight-hour bank to bank (for miners) act, the mechanics' lien act and sev- eral others. The platform announced by the Conservative party has also many good suggestions which I hope to see upon our statute books at an eariy date. For I may say that I stand first, last .and always for legislation that will protect the rights oi working men throughout the pro- .yjnce. 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 an education, that will better. prepare them -for the duties of good citizens. I be- lieve also- that more money should be: spent in putting our highways in proper condition for travel. I; may say in conclusion that-1 stand for the disfranchising of people of the-Asiatic race, such as Japs and Chinamen; These people take no interest in our institutions aid 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 grounds and many others too numerous to mention, in a short address, I appeal- to the. elec- tors of Racky Mountain District as an independent candidate for their hearty support, no matter, -what their political leanings may be and I prom- ise if returned as- their member the interests of all "classes and all parties will be faithfully, impartially and conscientiously "respected' by ;me.
