March 11, 1009 TO THE ELECTORS OF THE CITY OF I have been chosen as the Liberal candidate for the new Provincial constituency of the City of Lethbridge, but in soliciting your support I be- lieve I can confidently appeal to you as a citizen who desires and fore- most to serve the best interests of Lethb idge and Southern Alberta. In this campaign we have before us the Railroad Policy the Ruther- ford Government. This policy, if endorsee! by the people means that Southern Alberta will be provided with the railroads it so much needs during the next year or two. Both the Grand Trunk Pacific and. Canadian- Northern Railways have undertaken to construct lines into the Southland; with Lethbridge as practically the terminal point. The coming-of these, railroads means the opening up of-vast stretches of country all ..about' us and the consequent development of this city as the industrial., wholesale and commercial capital of the South, as -well as making it one of the. great- est railroad centres of. the West. ;-v In asking for your votes and influence I do so because I believe it is. the duty of this city. to return a supporter of this Government with its advanced railroad policy, in .order that the Premier and his coDeagues will understand that we appreciate their efforts to build up Lethbridge and that our interests may be protected and advanced by a man on the spot. not be very well served by the pro- posed roads. The Grand Trunk Pacific will run on to Coutts on the boundary.line. The Grand Trunk Pacific will have a branch from this line to Macleod, a distance of about 40 miles. The Canadian Northern Railway will run from Calgary to Leth- bridge. The same company will build branches to the National Park, to Macleod, to Cardston, to Coutts, to the Pass and to South Kootenay Pass.- The total mileage of these roads is about 650. All these roads will be joined to the transcontinental lines. That part of Alberta for 1-40 mil- es south of Calgary and about 100 miles east and west, a total of 000 square-miles, has a. guarantee of 660 miles of additional railways. That north of Calgary to Edmonton, 200 miles one way and about 300 miles .the other, an area of square miles, has a rail- Leihbridge is being well provided for I Personally I liave great faith in this city and the South country, and if and has "no just cause for complaint, i T honored with election to the Legislature it will be my mission to peanut politicians to the contrary. persistently advocate the claims of our city and district, and to impress upon the Government our requirements. I believe it "is very necessary at this time that Lethbridge should be represented at Edmonton by a supporter of the Government. Lethbridge should have a representative who can be the most closely in touch with the Government and its policy iu order that of the city as the metropolis of the South may be best looked after. More railways, tele- phone a land titles office and other matters will be needs of: this district and as these and many other matters will be matters of policy Government "it is necessary that a member with the .confidence of THE GREATEST Premier Rutherford DANGER inter- not a single constituency that will I view given at Edmonton said that the greatest danger the tjrovernment had in the election was the over-confidenc of the Government supporters.

No imagination, no fictitious plain, simple; honest facts. And we want you to make us prove it! F. German The Shoeman Between Sage's and Roys To the Electors of Rock) Mountain Electoral District Gentlemen: Having been requested by a large number of the electors of this dis. trict irrespective of party politics to offer 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 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 without being egotistical, 1 can say that--I have the qualifications and ability to properly represent this constituency in .the Provincial Legislature. The present Government; has admin- _-tered 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 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 T may say 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 and a thorough' up to date system of public schools -where children can obtain an education; that will better prepare .them .fpr ,he duties of good citizens."

If the Government candidates get out only a half or two-thirds of their vote anc the Opposition get out nearly a full vote, the election "would most likely be lost though the sentiment of the Province is strongly in favor of the Government. Outside of the quesitbn of a party victory it is in the best in- terests of all the constituencies the province as a whole that a vote be polled. The electors of this city as well as of every other con- stituency should get out in fuil force and make known their opinions uncertain way. Every vote is. the ex- pression of will and it is the will o] of well and faithfully done, and .1 maintain thwre'is no .argument to jje Spent in putting our Highways'.: in be offered in favor of jts defeat. It has been honest, fearless and pro- proper condition' for-., travel. I may say in conclusion that I stand .for the fclisfranchising of people of the Asiatic gi'-e an lUCH O .the way that the southern part o Alberta hag been generously treat- ed by the Government in the mat- ter of railways. The ridings of Cardston, Leth- bridge City, Lethbridge district, Macleod, Pincher Creek, Eocky Mountain, Clareshohn, ISTanton, High River, Okotoks and two Cal- garys have in this Southern Al- berta as great a mileage, of the new roads guaranteed, the roads from Calgary to Edmonton and about Edmonton. The Liberals of the South have appreciated the work of the Gov ernment and have done their part in selecting the very best candi- dates available. It is for the peo- ple of the Province to show their appreciation of the Government by electing these candidates to Par. liament." J the people that rules under the sys- tem of responsible Government that obtains in this country. Therefore every elector should consider it .his bounden duty to get out and vote whether it suits his convenience or not. The franchise is a privilege not "AT OR NEAR" Some of the local Conservatives, headed by their candidate, are trying to discount the value of the Ruth-r erford railway scheme to Lethbridge by saying that the inclusion of the ''or near" in the description of the location of the lines will work out to the disadvantage of the city. They picture the railway company ma a giant holding the big stick over the city, demanding free site, cash bon- us" and other privileges before they will come to the city. Such things hare happened and might happen Those who are no fearsome concerning Lethbridge in this regard seem to forger the letter received by the Board of Trade from Donald Me. CB.1LP.P. in which he stated that the Premier had said that the Government would not guarantee the bonds of the railways unless they a'ties and assured the vrtrade that both the Canad- tan and the Grand Trunk sure to go into Lethbridge.
