ANNOUNCEMENT During the election campaign Mr. W. A.

A. Buchanan, who stands by that record and policy. A vote for him is a vote of approval, and a vote aguiust him is tantamount to saying that the Government has been unsatisfactory and is unworthy of continued Trust. opinion of the Lethbri'.lge electors will be revealed Monday, when the votes for and Mr. Buchanan are counted. THE OPPOSITION The Legislative Assembly of Al- berta has proved itself a model Par- liament in the way it despatched pub- lic business. A few weeks, once only three, and never more than six, suf- ficed to perform its legislative du- ties. The reason for this difference between the Alberta Legislature and others is due to a certain extent to the careful preparation made for the session ty the Government. But it is also due to the fact that there no opposition who considered its main duty to keep up a carping criticism, thus delaying the transaction, of im- portant business by endless talking. During the session this state of affairs has been a great benefit to the pro- vince, and a saving of considerable net have his nomination papers pro. perly prepared. Pi's blunder is on a par with the run of his actions us a mcmbor of the House. Kutherford will JfiniVn bis work i.c people have said so already. Considerable portions of the 'id- dresses to the electors issued by W. C. Ives, the local Conservative can- didate, and by evi Harker. the can- didate, I'nd by Levi Harker. the Card- ston, are word for word. Which one is the parrot? Or did some one of the Junta at Calgary prepare both addresses? To defeat the Government the Con- servatives: have to eltct twenty-two out of the remaining thirty-two mem- bers to be elected. That would o going some, especially when 'hey have only nineteen candidates in the field. The few imaginative Consi'vu- have been bold enough or foolish enough to predict a party victory will probably wake up with- out seeing their dream realized.

German Tlte Shocman Between Sage's and Hoys To the Electors of Rocky Mountain Electoral District 1909 a genuine interest in their well being and legislates to bring about what they consider better conditions, they have a 'record of voting their ap- proval of that course of action. It is also true that when a man who, by word and deed, j has shown a sympathetic interest, I and has given his assistance toward improving the financial and i conditions of the workingmen, they' recognize the justice and of supporting him as a representative j in legislative office. i These are the conditions that- exist j in Lethbridge. The Alberta Govern- ment appeals to the workingmen f this city for support as a matter f endorsation. as well as of the pression of a desire on the part of the workingmen to have the Govern- ment go on in the good work. They call the attention of the workingmen to the fact that during the term of their holding office they have passed is reason to expect that it would, be different during succeeding ses- Those who-advocate the send-! Lethbridge, March 11, a larger opposition force to T0 THE ELECTufiS OF THE CITY OF I have been chosen as the Liberal candidate for the new Provincial constituency of the City of but in soliciting your support I be- province. A government such, as that headed by Hon. A. C. Rutherford re- quires no opposition to keep it straight. Tb.e past term of the leg- islature has clearly demonstrated that i fact. Why then should it be consid- ered necessary to cretite discord and dissension where accord and co-opera- tion prevailed to the benefit of the whole province? The argument for a stronger opposition in Alberta Legis- lature its force ir: the face of the facts. lieve I can confidently appeal to you as a citizen who desires first and fore- mast to serve the best interests of Lethbridge and Southern Alberta. Tn. this campaign we have before us the Kailroad Policy of the Kuther- 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 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 p'arta of the district I more labor legislation directly for the benefit of the workingmen than, has any other Government in America during the same length of time. No other Government can show such record. In that brief time the min- ers have been given the Eight Hour Bank to Bank Law; the working class as a whole has had the Work- men's Compensation Act, and the Mechanics' Lien Act, all of -which are admitted by all classes to be a great benefit to the people whom were designed to assist. Moreover, the laws passed reducing the costs i. law suite and the provision made r the collection of wage accounts., and other small debts, ate a direct beue, fit to the workingman. These laws were given freely and without any previous pledge. The saw that they were in the working- men's interests, and legislated "c- cordingly. Of their own account thiy investigated carefully, saw the cessity and justice of the laws, and passed them. There was no need for compulsion or agitation. It is now up :to the workingmen of thfe to endorse this course adopted by the Government. If the Governing it has been true to them, similar su> port should given in return. Tiis Government asks them to give ex- pression to that commendation by supporting the regular Government candidate, Mr. Buchanan. The Gov- ernment is fully justified in making this request, and it is only right ;nd" just and in accordance with the re- cord and principle of the working, men, that: .they should respond heartily. As the Government can Ii date as well as-from bis present cord, Mr. Buchanan has a stronger claim upon the support of the work- ingmen than has any other candidave. OUR POINT OF VIEW Help Buchanan bo Lethbridge. Northern Railways have undertaken to construct Hues into the South and ihave become intimately acquainted with Lethbri-.ig! as practically the terminal point. The coming of these with the various needs of all classes railroads mean? the opening up of vast stretches of country all about "us and I therefore believe that without the consequent development of this city as the industrial, wholesale j .egotistical, .1 can say that I and commercial capital of the South, as well as making it one of the great- have the qualifications and abiliCy to railroad- centres of'the 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 Kutherford, Rivers ai d Railways. Luther'ord, Reliability, and Buchanan for bridge. The Rutherford Go rnment 3 proved itself the true friend of workingmen. It has legislated freely aad willingly for him.

In every community there are a number of hardshell, partizans who cai see no good in the political party that is opposed them. however, there i also in every community a large number of people who can recognize the ability, integrity and progressive- ness that may be shown by either party, and who can judge an admi-i. istration on its merits. It is to this fair-ioinded and intelligent class ofj electors that an honest, capable anil progressive Government looks for sun j port and endorsation. The Kutherford Government be- lieves that its record during the three and a half years, and its policy for the next few years, are proof of their ability to administer the fairs of the province to the best in- terests of the people, of their hon- esty of purpose and practice, and of their progressive and advanced vieTr of the needs of the province, and o'. the solution of these needs. the electors to judge whether they have been true 'to the. trust re- posed in them, and whether they are worthy of a continuance of that trust.

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 oi the Government. Lethbridge should have a representative who can be the most closely in touch with the Govsrnment 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 be at Edmonton to influence the policy of the cabinet in Leth- bridge's favor.

The present Government has admin- istered 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 .miners) 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 statutp books' at an early date. For I 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 villages, and a thorough iip to date system of public schools where the children can obtain an education. that will, better prepare them for the duties oi good citizens. be- lieve also that more money should be spent in putting our FOR SALE A Great Snap for HOMESTEADERS 6 good work mares I Studobaker wagon with grain tank, nearly new 1 single buggy with pole 2 sets double harness I sst driving harnoi Must bt sold.
