Does-the city approve of and two who have lived up to efforts of the Government to bet- profession. Messrs Buchanan the condition of the workingmarf' L _ f McNab are known as the friends of labor, because their actions as well as their words have demonstrated the fact. The problem that the men who are in the ranks of labor have to solve is the choice to make between these two. Whether is it better to have as their representative at Ed- monton, a man who, while a friend- of labor, is outside the confidencee' and councils of the Government or a man who also a friend of labor is in confidential and influential relation-- ship with the Government? The workingmen seem assured tha either man would do his best in their interests. Many a supporter of Mr McNab has been free to say that i Mr. McJTab were not running hver hw opponent. Undoubtedly the rorkifigman in this election will best wrvfr his own interests as well as hr interests ol the province bv sup- NWting Mr Buchanan. Has it any objections to the Govern- ment making the land, railway and financial corporations pay their share of taxation? Has the city any con- demnation of the Government for building a court house and a provin- cial jail, and for putting in. a new telephone service in. the city? Does it approve of the businesslike, non- partisan administration that the pro- vince has had for the past three yeaxs and a half? These are the questions excavating was let, this bunch stated that it was a sign of approaching elec- tion, thut the Government was try- ing to bribe the constituency with Government money. To their view, if the Government spends money it is bribery, and if they do not it is ne- glect. That is certainly anything but a broadminded and citizenlike -view to of the Government's actions.

The Government is confident that when these matters have been considered that "a large majority of the electors will give them their support by voting for Mr. Buchanan, the Government candidate. OUR POINT OF VIEW It is hard for a Government to suit a certain class of politicians. Take the present contest in- the city for an example. Because the court house was not started before the money was voted for it, the small talk members of the Opposition party raise a howl against the Government for not spending money in the city. This To the Hectors Of the City Lethbridge. March 11, 1909 TO THE ELECTORS OF THE CITY OP L 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 apjeal to you as a citizen who desires first and fore- most to serve the best interests of Lethbridge and Southern Alberta. In this campaign we" have before us the Hailroad Policy of the Ruther- 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 an'd Canadian Northern Railways have undertaken-to. construct lines into the-South and -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, and commercial capital of the South, as well as making it one of the great- THE GREATEST SHOE values you ever heard of when it comes-down to actual facts are shown in the latest footwear styles we are cutting in our today.
