Tel. 353. 67-0 To die Hectors Of the City TO THE ELECTORS OF THE ELECTORAL DIVISION OF LETHBEIDGE CITY. As a candidate seeking your votes at this election, it is proper that you should be well advised of my opinion on public matters, in so far as this space will permit .me- to advance them. At the oufset-let me say that I .do not propose to inflict you with a self- written introduction Many of you have known me m this city for the past eight years, and are as fully acquainted .with my acts as- a citizen, during that time, as I am myself; and-of my 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 voter, 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 here, resources I 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 ;ttie Alberta Assembly to all Government measures :eithex past or to come, because they happen to bs fathered by a Liberal Government. It is not true. I believe I am as "broad .minded as the; average man, and al, legislation will have my support, or according; asr-I .believe it to. be good or Had business .for the people whom anil this whether it' is avLiberal or Conservative Government that administers the aff airs of; the Province. For example, the, word Ewlways, at .the present -time spslis a great need ,bf the Province at large, and particularly, of the city-'of Lethbridge. Let me. that ;the or any will get every as- ai3tance; from THA to jmsh. to -a rapid completion- eveiy foot of Railway pro- jected todayrby the Liberal: have them, and more of them; :but do: believe that, in.... granting such .valuable franchises, the legislation should be considered before finally .passed. -1 As "to'-the. present project of Railways and the: Charters granted, I be- lieve that: the Government should have demanded of in of the .people, ;a larger control .proposed railways and their more particularly -because the Board, of Railway Gommis- sioners Cana'daj -jurisdiction over. Provincial Railways. railways will built credit of ilie people, of Alberta, and we-are assuming the .liability :of4heirvcon3triictibn, and; if IJiad-been inthe Assembly> I .should have .demaiided protection throughout Alberta, so that no railway company could possibly hold -up rate-payers of any tiona Xinbw, that :-is the policy: of railway companies; talcing large sums of money and getting large exemptions, Vas the their entering a ;municipality, arid has; talcen place in this and every: other; -Canadian -Province..- I would have used every effortto eliminate from' everyrailway charter, all words: that allowed to the railway "company _any -ip whether it should, or''should >not, build into such cities as: because I? thatthere ' no that they should be compelled; under' the present legislation, to build" intoSnunicipalities of this size and character without being allowed to bargain with us for a price to" do so. the. railway legislation is now an Act pro- election of myself, a majority :of .Conservatiyes.iri'this Prbvincei: oil'rMarch: the stop the building: of this or any -other, or dejay ;the hope, to derive-from the "legislation: now in 'force. know, I -dp. railway companies will build other lines and enter this city irrespXctive of the way in which you cast your one oV-the other, now ,before you, is elected; assertion vote.for. the Government candidate .would impede the city's railway-'construction or prevent the expenditure of public "money is. a s unwarranted and-andefensibleab it is insulting ;tp the integrity of "the members of' the Government and your own intelligence. If the expenditure of money, the different1 constituencies depends election: of a Government -candidate, why does it .come about that firing three; and years, large expenditures have been made: in the Pistrict represented by Messrs, Kobertspn and Hiebert, :-the two Opposition members in the Legislature, while City of Lethbridge hail yet to receive its first Government favor, although; we have never elected in Opposition candidate front this riding. y H' we are to be lashed by the whip of Government jpatronage for the eiercise of our franchise, which we consider free; where was thV necessity for increasing the membership of the Legislative Assembly from, 25 to 41; members? v r'v.' If it is bad business to elect a Conservative, then the cohvtrse must true, and it is "good business to elect only XiberaiTnemters, in case surely 5B5 Liberals can as well administer the Affairs-of; our Province And to representation, gentlemen, does the; Government, in the face of population and production, give to the South a representation of but 18 members, while the North gets 33? 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 tfiw-city, of their promise made to me at the time of the De Veber-Iyes that if I ever stood again they would vote for me. That WM the niany of you freely.gave. I now ask you to it, and I also appeal to'all voters to make this a clean election, devoid of all unfortunate and irrevelant words and acts. I have every reipect and a warm personal feeling for each of the other candidates in the field, and I ask for them from the same fair and gentlemanly treatment that I expect to at their hands. For political conduct, if elected, I hare before me the atatesmmnlike C; -A. MtgrttJr; your member, which I will strive to loWow and whether returned the polls or not, I shall be ready-and earnest as ever to further the of the City of Lethbrtlge, and the ProTiiwe at large. Yours faithfully, W. t. IVH. COMPENSATION ACT FOR WORKMEN MISREPRESENTED BY CONSERVA- TIVE DISCUSSED Had Heart Trouble and Shortness of Breath For Six Years.

Party journalism is surely in sore straights when it lias to resort to so palpable a mis- statement of fact aiici so absurd a conclusion. The Attorney General's speech, in introducing the bill into the Alberta Legislature on'February 14th 1908, is ...available to everyone. It has been i'epublished in pamphlet form and scattered broadcast tttrough the "province. A COD v of it is prob- ably eveu now reposing .on. the desk of the editor oi the "Journal." At all events a report oi" it'will be found in the issue of that paper of Febru- ary 15th. 1908. This is what Mr. Cross said to the employers over a year aco'. few words ouR-ht to be added ".on 'this'very important and impera- "'tive subject of insurance. It.would 'be impossible under this act for em- '.ployers' oi' injured workmea to boar 'possible losses that might be ineurr- 'ed without the aid of insurance. 'With that aid the burdens of. the ''employers are comparatively .liirht "and certainly not oppressive. In- 'deed so far as. the Act is concerned may be said that the chief'duty 'of employers is summed up in the "word 'insui-e.' By the payment- of "a few dollars each paid by the "way of premium, the whole actual fijirderi is shifted from the shoulders bt; the-'einployer to that of the In- 's'urance Company. It is clear, "from every .standpo'nt that the self "interest ;of the employer combines his. duty to his workmen to "induce him to insure against his lia- -'billties. Not only may an employ.- "er insure against his actual !'ties, under the Act he may also m- "sure aeaJnst the-cost pjp- "ceedinRS taken in order to find; .out "what his liabilities are, and lie may "even insure for something above.his "actual liabilities. "The employer, in every case, how- "ever should to "see that the insurance covers the "whole of his-legal-'risks.- He should "exercise the greatest care in seeing 'that all conditions nf the insurance "policy are scrupulously- complete as "toJJie notice of" the accident, num- "ber of character of "their occupation, and nature of their "employment.
