Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 15, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta UTHtRIDQt, ALtEftTA, MONDAY, MARCH 15, Men of Good Taste will appreciate the elegance of our new Double Breasted Sack Suits. The styles are absolutely correct and. rendered doubly attractive by the Fancy English Worsteds we REFORM; have used. the Gnys. McKELVIE McGUIRE Sole Agents for Lethbridic. To the Electors Of the City TO THE ELECTORS. OF THE ELECTORAL DIVISION OF LETHBRIDGE. CITY. As a candidate seeking your votes at this election, it is proper that yon should be well advised of my. opinion on public matters, in. so- far as "this space will permit me to advance them. At the outset let me say that I do not propose to inflict you with a self- written introduction Many of you have known me in this city the past eight are as fully acquainted with my acts as a citizen, during that time, as I am myself; and of my acts and my solicitude for the advancement of this city and the province, I leave you to judge. I'cannot believe that it is the honest opinion of any that if elected as your representative, my actions would be other than unceasing in ad- vancing the interests of this city division as largely and rapidly in every way as my ability would enable it to be done, My home is resources' 1 have are here, and what ability I may have is at your disposal. Do not believe that my election means an obstinate or stupid opposi- tion in the -Alberta Assembly to all Government measures either past or to come, because "they happen to bs fathered by a Liberal Government. It-is not true. I :believe I am aebroacTminded as the average "man, and all iegislatioti.' will: have my support, or disapproval, according as j believe, it; to be good or bad; business fot the- people whom. and this it -is a -Liberal -or Conservative .Government thai .administers-the of the Province. For example, word Railwaysjrat the present time spells a great need of the; Province at large, and. particularly of the. city of Lethbridge. Let me say therefore, that the present, or any Government, will get every as- sistance from me to push to a rapid completion every foot of Railway pro- jected.tod ay by- the' Liberal G9vernment. We must have them, and more of but I do believe that in -granting such valuable franchisee, the legislation should be carefully cnsidered before finally passed. As -to the present, project of Railways ;and the Charters granted, I -be- lieve that the Government: should have demanded of these companies, in the interests of-the'-. people, a larger control-of the proposed railways and more particularly because the Board.-of Railway Commis- sioners for Canada, have no jurisdiction over Provincial Railways. These built jipon. the credit of the people of Alberts, and; w.fe are assuinirig the', liability of their and ic; the should have demanded protection for the Mxmicipalities: so that no railway company could possibly hold up the rate-payers.of anyTntinicipality, by a demand for money or exemp: tion'sfronv tha price for entering such municipality. Tou know, and ,T this is the policy of railway companies; talcing: large sums of money and.getting.large exemptions, as, the price of 'their entering: ai and has place in this and every other Canadian I would have used- every-; eliminate irom every railway charter, all wordig, that; allowed to tlie railway .company any choice as .to whether it shouid, orVshould not, build into such should be-no option, and that they should be compelled, under ?the-present legisiatton, to build into municipalities of this size and ;without being allowed to bargain with us forli price to do so. :c tlie railway legislation is now an Act of tliis pro- vinccV and ;Jdie election of or of a..majority of. Conservatives in ttiis on -March; the 22nd., 'will, the building of railways; to ahy other point, ami will not for one moment impede or delay the which we hope, to -derive from the legislation in force.

H. the expenditure.of money iij the different constituencies depends upon theT election of a Government candidate, why, does it come about the past-three and a half years, large expenditures have been Tnade fa the District represenfed by Messrs. and Hiebert, the Opposition members .in the Legislature, while the; City of Lethbridge has yet to tecetyc have never elected an Opposition candidate riding; -II we be.lashed by the .whip of Government patronage for the exercise of which we consider free, where was the necessity. for increasing the membership oi the Legislative Assernbly {rom SI5 to 41 With aimouncernent that John W. Woolf has been nominated m Card ston, the list oi Liberal candidates is now complete while several constit- uencies still beve, no Conservatives in the field. Mr. Woolf's first tc.-v; in the Alberta has shown him to be such an all-round capable man, keen for the interests of his con- stituents as well as alive to the pro- gress of Alberta, that it is believed he will be returned to- the Legislature with on even sweater majority than 1905. At a recent political moetinjr held here in. the interests of the Conserva- tives the chairman, made the state- ment that the Government's railway aolicy meant "selling Alberta to the Canadian Northern 'and Grand Trunk Pacific." This statement he based upon anotht-r equally, :he Governmait has only taken as a security mortgage" upon the roadbeds of these roads. As a matter of fact Jiese two new transcontinental .sys- tems, whose branch lines have been guaranteed here, pledge the credit of ;heir entire systems that the Pro- vince will not have to pay one cent of the provincial jfuarantee. Their systems would liave to co into liquid- ation ail over Camfda if this Pro- vince were ever called upon to pay one cent of the cuarantee. The 2X- to which ordinarily intelligent mnn can blind their reason during el- ection is always surprisine and this man's statement is one in-- of it. is bad business to elect a Conservative, then the converge must be true, and: it is good business to elect oaly Liberal members, in which surely SB Liberals, can as well administer the, affairs of yur Province And as to the representation, gentlemen, why the Gorernment, in the lace o! population production, give to the South a representation ol but'18 while the North getf 23? Do you call that Legislation in your interests, and do you approve it? In conclusion, gentlemen, I beg to remind my old time Liberal friends in thiii city, of their promise made to me it time of the De Veber-Ives that if I ever stood again they woald vote loi me. That was the pkdffe many of you freely gave. I now ask you to redeem it, and I also appeal to all voters to make this a clean election, devoid of all unfortunate irrevettnt words and acts. 1 have every respect and a warm" personal feeling for each of the other candidates in the field, and I ask for them from my supporters, the same fair and gentlemanly treatment that I expect to receive at their hands. For political conduct, if elected, I have before me example of C, A. Magralh, your Fsderal member, which I will strive to fottow, and wheUwr relarned'at or not, I shall ready and as ever to further interests of the City of and the Tours laithfollf, W. C. IVM.
