Gentlemen: Having been requested .by ;i large number of the electors o5 this dis- trict irrespective of party politics to offer myself as a candidate ut 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 [clidate and I now bespeak the hearty support of all classes. Through long residence and travel in different parts of the district have become intimately acquainted with .the various needs of all classes and I therefore believe that without being egotistical, I can say that have the qualifications and ability properly represent this constituency in the Provincial Legislature. The present Government has admin' istered the affairs of the province during the four years very cred- itably and it has given the people a great" deal of sane legislation. Anc 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 early date. For I may sa> that 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 i 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 shoulc be spent in putting our highways in proper condition for travel. I may conclusion that I.stand for the disfranchising of people of the_ Asiatic race, such as Japs and Chinamen These people take ho interest in our instimtions 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 absve grounds and-ms others too 'mention, in a short address, I appeal to the elec- tors of Eacky 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 thai the interests of all classes: and al parties will be. faithfully, impartially and conscientiously respected hy nie Dated at this 2nd day of March, 1909. John Angus McDonald. Rutherford, Rivers and Railways. Whether a candidate or a campaign- er, W. C. Ives always seems to find the Herald a. fruitful source of elo- quence. In fact> it would appear that if it were not for the.Herald he might at times be without a text for his. political discourses. His address last night was no exception. Among other things that he tried to do to this great family journal was an en- deavor to prove that the Herald con, tradicted itself and -was inconsistent. The Herald at one time advised the electors to elect as their representa- tive a man who as a Government supporter would have the ear of the Government and in another.editorial the Herald praised the Rutherford Government as impartial, giving a square deal to all- localities irrespec- tive, of their political complexion. If the Government is right in prin- ciple and practice vote for it. If you don't think it is, vote against it. The Conservative candidate says the Government is good hut. that he ought to'be sent- to the Legislature to oppose it. The labor candidate says that the Government has been .the best in Canada for the laboring man but- that he ought sent to Edmonton to make them ha good. The Liberal candidate says that the ernment is alright and ought. to be supported- Easy choice. .What a change.a few short words make. Mr. Claydon's few pointed sentences last night stripped Mr. Ives1 speech of all its force. When address is shown to lack sincerity and consistency, there is nothing left but the carbon dioxide created in the effort. "W. C. Conservative candi- announce his said the bills calling a mess meeting of the citizens for last night. The plat- a simple structure, viz.. "I will introduce a hill for the weekly payment of wages." He spoke on various other matters but Mr. Ives says that these two positions are contradictory and inconsistent. Such is not the case, however. If having the ear of the Government j form as announced'" meant having the ability to: get a public building or a road grant> then the Herald pleads guilty. But, the Herald does not believe that having the ear of the Government consists j of the ability to pull a few tens ofj thousands of dollars out of the pub- lic treasury occasionally for some work in the constituency, whether it is needed or not. It does believe, hbwever> that when it comes to the shaping of a general policy on any line of action, the Government pays more attention to a supporter who is in sympathy with its' ideals and appreciates its intention than it does to a member who is in straight oppo- sition or .to the member there as an independent with only one particular object in view. For example, in the working out of the railway construc- tion, the province must necessarily be divided into divisions and some one place will be the centre of work and administration for each district. Similarly, it will be with the devel- opment of the telephone system, the educational system, the building of central provincial railways and other lines of administration. The member who is in the confidence of the Gov- ernment can have an influence that an outsider cannot possibly have. It is power to make his city a centre of .wealth and influence.
