ANNOUNCEMENT During the .election campaign Mr. W. A. Buchanan, will rjpt be associat- ed with the editorial work of the Her- ald, which will be conducted by ether members of the staff. BUCHANAN, RIVERS AND LETH- BRiDGE RAILWAYS Lethbridge and Lethbridge' District are to be well supplied with rail- ways during the next three or four years. To this city are coming the north aiid. south main lines of the Canadian Northern and the Grand Trunk Pacific, both of which will traverse the Lethbridge District con- stituency from end to end. From Lethbridge will be branches of these to Coutts and Cardston and inter- vening points. In the district there will be branch lines to Macleod, and the Pass, with a probability of fur- ther branch lines to the east to Med- dle Hat. These will be built by the two lines whose bonds are guaranteed by the Alberta Government, which is being supported by W. A. Buchan- an in the city and Dr. Rivers in the District. Besides these lines there are the lines the C. P. K. is build- ing from Lethbridge to Macleod, from Lethbridge to Calgary, and from Leth- bridge to Weyburn, Sask., with a line proposed from Lethbridge to meet one coming from Saskatoon. The lines, by the Gov- ernment are Tinder contract io be completed by the end of 1911 and th others will in all probability be com pleted not later than a year after. The anxiety of the C. P. E. to ge their lines built so quickly in this district is due to a desire to get int the country the Governmen lines take the .'traffic. So while the Government is not guaranteeing the bonds of the G. P. Rv (that company being in a financial position, to re quire no assistance) it is largerly re sponsible for their rapid .construction The monopoly so long held in thi country by the CIT. B. is to be brok 'enl The people "who- have from it know best how to appreciat being relieved from the burden o railway monopoly. The electors o these two constituencies as well of every other constituency benefit. ted by the Rutherford railway policy cannot with any sense of fairness vote against the Government. ap- prove of the Government's course in this most important" they ought to say so with their ballots It is not a question of party politics but of. foe approval. or disapproval of the-Government's policy, Buchan- an and Rivers stand lor that .policy and the electotrs should stand by them. who stands for the Government and its policy. Granting that under some circumstances, the position of the workingmeu would be strengthened by electing a labor member, it would certainly be the reverse under the present circumstances. By suppoit- ing Mr. Buc-hauau in this election the workingmen would place their stamp of approval on the legislation passed and speak in no uncertain voice against the efforts that -are being brought to bear upon the Govern- ment for the repealing or amending of the acts. This is the only consti- tuency in the Province where there is a contest between the Government candidate and the labor candidate and the defeat of the Government candidate cannot be interpreted into anything else but a vote of disappro- val of the Workmen's Compensation Act. the Mechanics' Lien Act. the Eight Hour Bank to Bank law. the extension of the hours of polling en election day, the laws making the col- lection of wages cheap and speedy and other legislation that has been passed especially for the benefit of the workiagmeu. In justice to their own interests, present and future, the workingmen cannot afford to vote against the Government candidate. The Rutherford Government has been the consistent and active friend the workingman. One good turn deserves another. THE FARMERS' GOVERNMENT No Government in Canada has been more active and successful in encouraging and assisting the agricul- tural interests than has the present Alberta Government. By providing for better transportation facilities, getting good freight rates to the great Oriental markets, by breaking the lumber combine so as to reduce the The Government has shown itself awake to the interests of the farmers of this district. The best vote of thanks the farmers can give Gov- ernment is a vote for Dr. Rivers iu the Lethbridge District, or for J. W. Wooit in the Cardston constituency. The workingmea of Kdmonton are backing the Attorney-General to a man because of the Labor legislation that lias beeu passed by his depart- ment. The Government's record has won their strong support. The Gov- ernment candidate in Lethbridge, standing by the same record and the same policy should have the same support. Dornxan, the gentleman who investigated railway conditions for the Calgary Herald, and framed the Herald's railway policy, is stumping for the Liberal party in Alberta. With this gentleman with the Goevemment and the Herald chief deserted, it is not surprising that the Herald's pres- ent policy is so much on the ragged 25c, 35c, 45c and 55c OUR COFFEES AT 1 Are blended by ex- and fresh roast- ed.

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 the City Lethbridge, March 11, 1909 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 first and fore- price of the very necessary commo- most to serve the best interests of Lethbridge and Southern Alberta. THE WORKINGMEN AND THE GOVERNMENT The, workingmen of this city have a duty to perform and an obligation to fulfill for the Rutherford Govern- me'nt. The Government has passed certain legislation for them and it is acknowledged by the great bulk f of the laboring people to be very much in their As a result of this the Government is looking to tbe workingmen for their endorsation. Strong efforts have been put forth and are still being 'put forth to have this legislation repealed or so amend- ed as to nullify its benefits to the people whom it was; designed to ben- efit. The are making a dead set; on the ment candidates, particularly .Hon. C. W. Grose, the AttorneyrGeneral, who were mainly responsible for the passing of the laws, particularly the Workmen's Compensation Act, The three constituencies that are specially interested are Edmonton, Calgary and Lethbridge. In Edmonton, the workingmen are rallying unanimous- ly around Mr. Cross an expres- sion of their endorsation of the laws and the efforts of the Attorney-Gen- eral to legislate for them. In Gal- gary, Mr: Gushing and his -running mate are receiving the support of the workingmen for the reason. In neither of these cities are- the workingmen opposing the government candidates. .In Lethbridge alone is there any effort to oppose the 15ov- pTnment candidate: If the working- men should defeat Mr. Buchanan, the Government candidate, the parties who are working to defeat the legisla- tion will -use the as an inflaence pit the Government to have the laws repealed. The wokringmen of this do not want the laws repealed. or amended in the interests of the employers. They consider that the laws are soed sr.d if any amendments to- be niade, they want them in tlMfe iSTor, This being the case, as H nkfaiMedlf is, they should vote so as to rtiiBjfhen the hand of the Md Mt.to weaken it by Mf volt nf tffcspproval Then it only 1o do this and diiy of lumber, by rapidly pushing the -rural telephone system, by gerr erous assistance to fairs in the var ious branches of agriculture, by op erating Government creameries, bj sending expert teachers and demon strators of good farming among th fanning communities, by a large ex penditure on country roads am bridges, by taxing the corporation lands for school purposes, by estab- lishing public schools wherever need ed" without delay, and by scores o other ways, the government has clear ly shown that it understands the needs of the agriculturist and is anxious to do everything possible' to enable iiiiu 'to get the-largest reward for his labor and investment and to provide the best possible conditions for the faniier and his family. Th farmers of Lethbridge District know that, the Government has done all its power for them and is prepared to carry' on Hhat policy. Knowing this they support the governmerr candidate. Dr. Rivers, vrho himself is a, practical farmer as well as a med ical man. The fanners of the othei rural districts will also recognize the efforts of the Government in their behalf and will give.a solid support The city of Lethbridge depends a great deal on the well being of the surrounding country ior. its prosper- ity. The businessmen know that the efforts of the Government have as- sisted very materially.in the wonder- ful success of the farmers in this vicinity and have thereby increased the prosperity of the businessmen of the city. Recognizing this it. is only fair that they should support the candidate of the Government, Mr. Buchanan. THE NOMINATIONS The nominations yesterday, show a very -interesting..state ,nf affairs. They are very encouraging to the Govern- ment and its supporters as well. Nominations were held in thirty-sev- en constituencie, electing thirty-nine members, .the elections in the two mostt northerly constituencies being deferred. Last nighfs reports from thirty-five of these constituencies electing thirty-seven members, show that five constituencies, La- combe, Leduc, Pembina, Sturgeon and Victoria have elected Govern- ment supporters by acclamation. Re- ports -would: indicate that Sedgewick also has given the Government can- didate a free election. Jn only twen- ty-two of the- constituencies have the Conservatives put-up a candidate at all, .thus allowing nearly one-half to gp .by default. As far as the Conser. vative party is concerned, the jig is up for they have not a ghost of a show to come anywhere near getting a majority. The nominations of yesterday set- Lied the elections as iar; as determin- ing" whether or not the. Rutherford Government will be sustained. It is now for Lethbridge to fall into line and.; give by election the same en- dorsation.of the Government's policy and record that so many constituen- cies have given acclamation. tfcsf Is bf siyporHaf OUR POINT OF VIEW Help Buchanan boost Lethbridge. Rutherford, Rivers and Railways. Five seats by acclamation is not a )ad start for the Government. Is' It right to condemn a Govern- nieni that has done no wrong? The Condemnation of the innocent is not the practice of the honest Albertan lectorate. Wooll with his excellent record ,s a member .of the Howie and as a candidate of the progressive and hon- st Rutherford Government should be eturned by the electors of Cardston ith a large majority. The fanners of the Lethbridge dis- rict- owe a great ded of their soo- cew .tcj the expert instruction given by rof. Campbell and other specialists in fanning suited to this In this campaign we have before us tne Railroad Policy of the Euther- ford Government. This policy, if endorsed 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 South and with Lethbridge as practically the terminal point. The coming of 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 tbe West. 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 colleagues will understand that we appreciate their efforts to, build, up Lethbridge and that our interests may be protected and advanced by a man on tbe spot. Personally-I have great faith in this city and the South country, and if I am honored with election to the Legislature it will be my mission to 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 in order that the interests of the city as the metropolis of the. South may'be best looked after. More railways, tele- phone extensions, 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 with the Government, it is necessary that a member-with the confidence of the cabinet at Edmonton" to influence the policy'of _ the cabinet- in Leth- bridge's favor. The record of the Rutherford administration in other respects is one .of work well and faithfully done, .arid :I maintain there is no argument to To the Electors of Hock) Mountain Electoral District Gentlemen: Having been requested by a large number of tbe 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 oao the 22nd inst, I haye der; cided to accede to their request and offer myself as an independent can- didate and I now bespeak the; hearty support of all classes. -'h 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- istered the affairs the province during; xhe 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 jniners) the mechanics' .lien act and sev- erar others. The platform annpunced by the Conservative party has. also many good suggestions which I hop to see upon our statute books at an early" date. For "myssif, I may sa that I stand first, last and always Jo legislation will- protect the rights of working-' men throughput the7 pro- vince. -I also stand for improved leg islation regarding our- .cities, towns and villages, and a thorough t date system of'public schools wher the children can obtain an education that- will better- prepare them fo the duties of good citizens.
