NUMBER GERMANY IS AFTER OUR TRADE A ROUSING LIBERAL MEETING WAS HELD LAST NIGHT SEVERAL SHORT AND STIRRING SPEECHES WERE DELIVERED Delegation Has Been Sent To Discuss Plans Berlin. March is stated that the German-Canadian Economist As- sociation intends sending a delega- tion to Canada for the purpose of lobbying in favor of closer Gennan- Canadian trade relations. The delegation will include repre- sentative business mu.i, and they hope to reach Canada while the Do- minion Parliament is in session ana to lay before it definite suggestions for relieving imports under which German trade is now suffering. The association has ambitious plans for furthering German trade interests in Canada, and is preparing to pro- n-ote them in characteristic fashion. Arrangements are proceeding for booming Canada throughout Ger- many by means of public lectures, literature, etc. Excellent. Canadian products are to be advertised, and the wide resources of the Dominion us f> home for German immigrants will be glowingly described. Canada, it is will in its turn not be ungrateful, but will gradually de- velop taste for ware "made in Ger- many." v German newspapers also will de- opatch special commissioners to Can- ada this summer.

P, J. Nolan Tells Why He Supports the Government Sound Sense Appeals To the Electors Sim- mons Answers Ives' Criticism The Crowd Was With Buchanan Brevity, pointcdness and confidence were the characteristics that_ marked the addresses1, at the mass meeting in Oliver's Hall last night in the inter- ests of W. A. Buchanan, the Liberal candidate for this city. Everybody was in splendid humor and the au- dience was not tired with lone speech cs. The hall was well filled and the crowd was entertained before the meeting opened by the Concert Band. S. J. Shepherd jfrosided and the speakers were, W. A. Buchanan. W. C. Ives. P. J. Nolan, Dr. Riv- ers, and W. C. Simmons. THE CANDIDATE The Liberal candidate opened for mectioer and spoke of the speaker of the evening, P. J. Nolaj, as being- a Conservative of the honest type who believi'd in commending and support- ins: fl crood government. The speak- er could see no reason why the.Alber- ta government should not be support ed bv every class of citizen. He support mtrnt, as these roads were new and were placed in sparsely settled dis- tricts, which they developed at small profits. In closing the candidate aD- pcalcd for .support as a supporter of a progressive government. DU. IUVKHS Ur. Rivers of Raymond, the Liberal candidate for Lethbridge. district, was introduced but a very bad cold, i'prevented him from speaking so as to be heard, so the Dr. was forced, to .sit down, after expressing; his plea- sure in speaking for Mr. Buchanan, were It possible to do so. W. C. IVES W. C. I.ves, the Conservative can- didate was the next speaker. As he could not be present at Mr. McNabib's tomorrow he spoke di- rectly to the workingmen -for a few minutes at the opening of his address advisintj them that if they thought Mr. McXabi. could best serve their in- terests at Edmonton it was''their but that was o.uly done on one short line north of Edmonton." If it was a good thing there it ought to be good business here. air. Ives thought it would be a good thing it' a government had to overrome opposition and again asked that a large vote be polled and- clos- ed by referring to the use made by his opponents of his acts in the city council. He took the responsibility title of "aa importation." He had, "large tract of foal land to this pro- -no axe to grind but had the courage to look at. political questions from a business standpoint and do his own thinking. He asked his audience to do tiio same ivorth while." In his opinion voters should be masters, not servants. There was no body of men. concerning whom therft "vince, and I will see that these coal "lands are operated for the benefit of the people." "Where I live said Mr. Noljrn. ii they thought can't get coal into the house under or a ton, although is lots of it underground." KINDS OF OPPOSITION The speaker then very originallv A MAN WAS SEEN An Important Witn 4 Found In Kinrade Case Hamilton, March after- was so much trouble at election time described the different types of oppo- Jloon Jt was announced that a new ELECTIONS FOR PARLIAMENT Should Be Held At Same Time-Amend the Act Ottawa, March the House of after three hours' dis- cussion this afternoon, on the reso- lutio'n regarding- same day general- Canada, the mo- tion was defeated on a straight party vote of 115 to 69, a Government- ma- jority of 46, which is the largest' se- cured this session, and is about th- riormal Government majority. Mr. Burrell was particularly well equipped for opening the debate, HS his constituency was one -of those in which the election was deferred fall. He was therefore in a position to tell just what the effects were. He declared that ..the postponement was not only unfair to the Opposition- candidate, but it- was manifestly de- signed to stifle the franchise. T-he grounds on which the elections had been deferred he declared; flimsy, and ..-pointed out that- later, when an elec- tion was held in Gomox-Atlin, which of the largest and' most inac. cessible constituencies in Canada, thy .by'velection was brought off in a short time during the gen- eral elections. Mr. Fielding, who was leading the House, in the-absence of" Sir Wilfrid Laurier, refused to accept. Mr. Bur- relTs resolution on the ground -that it was a.want-of confidence motion. Mr. Good eve strongly supported the inotnn. Great injustice had been done in his own constituency of Koo- tcnay. It was also a bad advertise- nient to.. circulate abroad that cer- tain portions of British Columbia had such poor transportation facilities that general elections could not be held on the same day as in.the rest of the country. "Ralph Smith was in sympathy with the purpose of the resolution, and agreed that everything possible should be done to do away with deferred and he looked forward to the amendment- of the elections act providing a remedy. He could notvot-v for the motion, as it was a want of confidence motion. Mr. Foster de, cWed that deferred elections, were not fair. They were loaded dice. Mr. of Alberta, and Mr Knowles, of -Assinaboine, opposed the .resolution. The vote was then taken, as Mr. 'Pifton, who was in the House for the first time since the accident at Wash- ington, was received with cherswhen he arose to vote. The; remainder of the session was passed in. Committee of Supply on the Iiarbors and rivers for Quebec. BUILDING PERMITS The following building permits have been issued during the past few days Bowman and Job Redpath St., 0. E. Couits St. J.-..W. McKay dealt with the advanced labor legisla- tion of the government ...and thought that workingraen. if desirous of show ins: appreciation "of that legislation should "support a government candi- date. While a supporter, of the Lib- eral party and the Kutherford govern- ment, he was a citizen of Lethbridge first and last. He would always aim to advance tho interests of this citv: He was proud of it and thought it one of the greatest cities of the west. Th'e lyernihent recotrnized its im- portance by giving- it a member and there was nothing he would be proud- er of than to be its first member. Mr. Buchanan was of the opinion that it is the duty of the citizens to cast aside party influences and SUD- port the government, which so well deserved their support. Mr. Buchanan made it plain that he had "no promises to make but would impress upon tho government the necessity of a land titles office in. Southern Alberta and that it should. be placed at this city. He thought is .to the south what Cal- gary. is to the centre and Edmonton 16 the ndrtb. ABOUT RAILWAYS In reply to "Mr. who stated a.t his meeting that the Government ha.d not rruaranteed the bonds of the CL P. R. Mr. Buchanan from Premier Rutherford stated: "We are not hostile" to the CJP.lft building- branch lines throughout .thfi Province of Alberta. I have received petitions signed by a 'large number of farmers in the Province recAiestinGr the Provincial government to unre. unon that company the great necessity of extending their lines. Let the C.P.H. extend "as fast as they can. They do not ask- for a guarantee of bonds. "The credit of the C.P.R. stands sn that they do not reqpire a eruar- antee of. their bonds. "We can, however, -'.urge upon this company the necessity of extending their lines.- We have been doinsr so for some years. guarantee of bonds by a -pro--; enables n-. companv-to obtain a. little better price i'or their bonds ami warrant to the. shareholders, forj they can assume that a province will not Guarantee for lines that are not requisite and desirable." Mr. Buchanan, while appreciating Mr. Ives., with Mr. Buchanan, thought there was much need of inde- in Alberta political liJfe. Mr. also was preaching it. ...As to "getting the ear of the gov- ernment" nothing would do it like a, large vote. If this is done the irovr trnment will see the progress and will lend its ear when the city speaks. Ko matter is returned to the citv his strerioflh will be as the strength of those who sent him and no more. "The Herald says that an Opposi- tion should not be returned but it is proven tonight that the Opposition is the only thiner that Can down things from the north referring to Mr. Nolan. If Mr. Bu- chanan gets a majority has he encair- ed Mr. Simmons and Mr. Nolan, to represent the people of Lath-bridge a.t Edmonton or will he be able to'do it. alone. I haye run this campaign alone and if returned to Edmonton of of the council the workingmen. For three weeks jsition and wanted a" critical capabl before election politicians generally j opposition that would admit of good sit up at night worrying about them, done. He stated that the statements but the other four and fortv- regarding "Hogtown" Calgary nine weeks "they can go to the dick- ;ng the sectioned cry were not true "ens the best way they know how." Such however had not been the case was satisfied to let the ratepayers his record. W. C. SIMMONS Mr. Simmons did not play parlor croquet politics for the first five min- utes of his address but proceeded to "comb" with a heavy....comb. He showed his inconsistency in speak ing well of., the government one dav and not the next. He showed that his statements regarding the govern- ment control were false and that Mr. Ives knew it fos- the fullest control of all branch lines in.the province has been vested in the Minister of Public-Works unless the .lines become part of a transcontinental line when, they come under the. jurisdiction of the railway commission. la his opiii ion Mr. Ives had at his meeting made an excellent campaign speech for Mr. Buchanan.. was sorry for Mr. Ives that he had to fight-alone, but told that, while Mr. Ives was at Calgary he wasn't alone, but goi into the Con-i servative committee rooms and rais- i legislation should recommend them but were raised by a few who have private interests to serve. To prove of the Rutherford government who that Calvary had no kick he stated had kept the workingrnan always in that out "of revenue spent during the last three years mind. Air. Nolan then reviewed the his- tory of the government from a ration a I standpoint. He pointed out that Hon. Rutherford, Cross, Finlay and Cushing were entrusted with the reins of government four years and ago and had to face problems that Canadian statesmen were never be- fore called upon to face.. All tho charges against them had been heard but. taking their record as a whole he challenged criticism- al- ternative have the opposition to offer you" asked Mr. Nolan, who thought 000 had been spent in the vicinitv of Calgary. The people of Calgary proud of their capable minister and there were enough sane people left to return him. He thought the Ru- therford government should be SUD- ported, for its record regardless of its politics. That government is now asking you if it has done right you and the only way you have 01 answering is support its candidate Continuing along the same line Mr Nolan said, "These men say they are Independent Conservatives or Conser- there was no breath of suspicion asr- vativc Independents or something ainst the Rutherford admioistration j and are not going to oppose the go- and their record-a clean one. Their j vernment. Why don't they quiet and let some one support- it. ed the sectional cry that the south was not getting a square deal. THIS' COURT HOUSE As to the reason why the court, court house had not been built" in. Let-abridge; Mr. Simmons explained that the funds were required for roads and bridges which had been, damaged by the spring floods. Had. the court house been erected the tuna that the farmers' needs had been neff- lected would have been sung with. am ready and willing to demand the great eloquence. ear of the j-xovernment alone for the'.. Mr. Simmons brieflv showed the people T represent, and when I am des raandmc: it. will have one ear open to the demands.of the city." Mr. Ives also again assured his au- dience of his willingness to support, rfiny good legislation, regardless of. who --introduced it. He gave credit to Mr. McNabb and the miners fpr getting- legislation .and referred to a reasonableness of .giving the labor legislation a fair trial and strongly condemned sectional feelings. He showed how few men were really op- posing the government and referred to the electors for their support. Referring to the telephone system owned by the government Mr. Nolan spoke of the condition of the system four years ago. When asked by. the government to extend it, the Bell Company said, "You attend to your own business and we'll build branch lines when we ..get good and readv." The government then put in a. branch line and the Bell people "sat up and took notice." Mr. Cushine: told them that he would build as many lines as he chose and would duplicate their lines where he chose. Then the Bell Company wanted to sell and no one said that the purch- ase price was too high, Speaking briefly of the railwav to Archie McLean, and Mr. McNeil of question Mr. Nolan said, "I have no Macleod, an old died-in-the-wool To- ry like MX.

In dosing Mr. Simmons spoke of the highly honorable character of Mr. Buchanan and of his good record. He gave him much of the credit for tho advertising of He-also stated that "the union label i was not on the-campaign literature.} that was sent into this city and which the Liberals dare not send out A strong plea was made against P; J.

B..C., March 1ST. Brunskill, a raneher-livimr near Laur- ier., made a rich find last "week. While walking -along the Great Northern tracks, near his ranch, Brunskill saw footprints leading into the bushes, and on following them came across a cache of a roll of blankets and d, suit case. He proceeded to open them up, and discovered that they contained some 150 pounds of opium. Mr. Brunskill took his find to the Customs officer at Laurier, and, it is stated, will receive something like 9600 for his honesty. The smuggler has as yet not been captured. It is supposed the opium was brought from Vancouver, and that some one was entrusted to deliver it at Spo- kane, but it is now in the hands of the. United States .Customs Depart- ment..

He then showed how the provincial government had secured control of the land titles offices and forced the C.P.E. .to take out patents so1 that it could be taxed.'- .Last year the C. T.R. paid taxes on its branch lines. ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE As to the administration of justice four years ago there four points are fifty-six where a District or Su- preme Court Judge can be found. Mention was made also of the fact that a man who works for waffes now has a preferential claim on a debtor. .LABOR LAWS The speaker briefly alluded to "Workmen's Insurance.

SOME QUESTIONS Ashcroft rose and said "Mav 1 ask a Mr. if I know .the answer." Mr. Nolan came down here before to elect Frank Ol- iver. He beat him before and we'll beat him this time." There was no question propounded so Mr. Sfolan took his seat. Arthur Claydon also wanted to ask a question and took the platform to do so. _''-.

The accident occurred last August, when Hyndman's arm was torn bodi- ly from' the socket. Chief Howell submitted seven questions ill" wilting to the jury with a view to ascertaining the individual sentiment of the jury, and in each instance the reply was favorable to the plaintiff.
