Lethbridge District: am a candidate asking your support, not by my own wish, but because strongly urged to do so by a very large number of Electors. The District is so'large, and thetime before Polling Day so .short, that, it is utterly impossible for me. to meet "all of you personally, and 1 take this means of reaching you. My only Politics is summed up in the words "Lethbridge District." I will earnestly use my-whole endeavor to push to a rapid .tion.. those things in the interests of this Avhich legislation al- .ready passed, -promises you; and.-1 will-support the present, or any Gov- ernment, in any legislation which they bring forward, in the interests of Hi ft people of this District. I have been farming and ranching in your midst for; almost twenty, five years. The older settlers know me, and to those of you who do not I refer you .to the .older settlers with confidence. I. appeal to you to drop polities and to think of your District only, and. I- believe that ray knowledge of conditions and the wants of the peo- i vtrer cent- redl i duties an shoddv pie in this District will enable me to present our requirements and secure their, fulfillment. .t -approve of the Government linilway'policy, and by voting for me you I will approve pi it. I am tied to no Party; and my Platform is one of independence; [striving for good Legislation in the interests of your District.

GOD SAVE THE: KING I THE INDEPENDENT CANDIDATE FOR. LETHBRIDGE PISTRCT ELECTION DAY, MARCH 2 To the Hectors Of the City '0 THE ELECTOKS OF THE ELECTORAL" DIVISION LETHBRIDGE CITY. As a candidate seeking your.votes at this election, it is proper that you hould be well advised my opinion on in so iar as this pace will permit me to advance them. At the outset let me say that I do not propose to inflict you with a self- Wgritten introduction Many of you have known me in this city for the past eight years and are as fully acquainted' with my acts as 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. ;1.., 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 way as my ability would enable it to be done. H. My home is here, what 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 the Alberta Assembly To alT Government measures either past or to come, because they happen to bs lathered by a Liberal It is not true. I believe I. am ae broad minded as the average man, and ai; legislation, .'will, have my support, or disapproval, according- as I believe it to be good or had business for the people whom'I represent; and this whether it is a Liberal or Conservative" Government that the affairs" of the Province. For example, tho word Railways, at the present time spells a great need of the Province af'large, and particularly of tlie city of Lethbridge. Let me say therefore that the present, or any Government, -wilT.get every-.as- fcom- me to push to a rapid completion every foot of jected by'the Liberal Government. We must have of them; but I do believe that in granting such 'valuable thW legislation should be carefully considered before finally passed. As to -the present project of Railways lieve that the Government should.have demanded of these companies, ijr the interests of the people, a larger control of: the, proposed anif their operation; more particularly because. the VBpa'rd; of sioners for have no jurisdiction over Provincial Railways These railways 'will he :built upcta 'of ;tiie people 1'ofAlbjerta, and we "are 'assuming; the 'liability' of "their construction; and If had" lieen Assembly, I should ;have demanded protection for the 'Municipalities Alberta, so that no railway company could possibly hold up the 5 of municipality, by a demand-lor grants of eiemp- taxation, as the price for entering such municipality. You know, and I "know; that this "is thef policy of railway companies; taking 'large sums of money and getting large theprice of their entering a has- taken place in :this and every other Canadian .Province. A. I would.; have, vised every effort to eliminate from every railway charter, that allowed..to the railway company any choice-as to whether it should, Or should' "into' such cities as' Lethbrfdge, becauVe I there sTipuld option, 'and legislation; to build into municipalities this and' wiftiout" being "allowed to bargain with us; for a price to do so. Further, .gentlemen, the railway 'legislation, is 'Act of this vince, -arid the election of or of a majority of ConWrvativesdih'tiiifl the 22nd.; will not this or any other point; arid will 'noi'fipr one mbment': impede or delay which "we hope 'to derive from the legislation now in You know, as I do, that the railway companies-wiirbuild other linM and will enter this city irrespective of: the w'ay 'in cast: yotir vote, and whether one candidate or the other, n'.w before you, is" elected; and tlie assertion that a vote for any but tho Government candidate would impede the city's' advancement, delay railway construction or" prevent the expenditure of public money :is 'as; unwarranvM and 'indefensible as it w insulting to the integrity of the members of the Government and your own intelligence. If the expenditure of money in the different constituencies depends upon the election of a Government candidate, 'why it come about that during the past three and a half years, large expenditures have been made in the District represented by Messrs. the two Opposition members in tb.e Legislature, while the City of Lethbridge" has yet to receive its first Government favor, although we have nevet elected an Opposition candidate' :from: this riding. r If. we are to be lashed by the whip of Government patronage for the exercise of our franchise, which we consider 'free, where was the necessity for increasing the membership of the Legislative Assembly from 25 to 41 members? If. it is bad. business to elect a Conservative, then the converse must be true, and it is good business to elect oniy Liberal in which case surely 25 Liberals can as well administer the affairs of our And to the representation, gentlemen, why does the Government, in the face of population and production, give to the South a representation of but 18 members, while the North gets 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 this city, of their promise made to me at the time of the De Veber-IVes election, that if I ever stood again they would vote for me. Thmi was the pledge many of you freely gave. I now ask you to redeem it, and I appeal to all voters to make this a clean election, devoid of all unfortunate and irrevelaut words and acts. I have every respect and warm perional feeling for each of the other candidates in the field, and I Mk for'them from my supporters, the same fair and gentlemanly treatment that I expect to receive at their hands. For my political if elected, I have before me lUtMrnanlike example of C. A. Magrath, your Federal member, which I will itrive to follow, and whether returned at the or not, I ihall be nadr and earnest ever to further the interesti of the City of and the at Youu I. rrw.
