The necessity of more rail- ways has betn keenly felt. Thf bus- inessmen of th6 city realized that they could get better service and cheaper rates if more railways con- must be given. old them with the east. They i knew, too, that if railways opened up the surrounding country trade would increase to a.great extent.

The general public knew that more aid, which .will .be conducted other members of the staff. i railways meant better passenger and __i mail service. The fanners and stock- i men .have been strongly conscious of i the -fact thai the lack of railways Shall Letnbndge put a Q. position to the Government at La- SHALL LETHBRIDGE OPPOSE inonton? Does this city wish to known and recognized as a citv ihtt is opposed to the policy outlined ty the Government? If so, what reason? There are some who have a Joj t ed this attitude but one searches .n vain for any reason for their icing so. There is no objection to tbo administration of the affairs so as the city "or the province is concern- ed. That has been and is cornmen' ed by all. They do not deny that, the Government has recognized this city as the metropolis of ihe South They admit that the Government done its best to make this a railwiy centre by sending two main here, thereby making the city centre of trade and influence in thw southern part of the province. Ft j hac provided a telephone system i radiating for scores of miles in al-j most every direction and will at once put the city system in on the "aost up to date plan. It has made pro- vision for the expenditure of at least two hundred thousand dollars in public buildings, in short it has done .everything possible to make Lethbridge a centre of wealth and .influence. What they have agreed to do will be done and now it is up to the electors of the city to say whether or not they want this policy of pro- Government that has done much for the Cardston district. The Rutherford Government has done well for Lethbridge, and de- serves well from its electors. Buchanan, stands the Ituther. ford record and for its policy. If these look good to the electors of Lethbridge. there is only one thing they can do. The Kutherford Government is a good Government. The people ap- prove of good things. W R. classes of signs; painted. Carriage painter. House i painter. Paper hanger. Wood fin meant year. Railways have been wanted and wanted badly. The Rutherford Government has made an arrange- ment by' means of wiii-jh the people of the chy and district will get the railways and now it is up to them, to say "Thank you." The only way to do it is by supporting the Gov- j eminent candidates, Buchanan, Riv- ers and Woolf in the present elec- tion. The Government is deserving. of the of the people am? ex- pects to receive this., which is no more than what ordinary gratitude' to say nothing "f business, demands. Railways were wanted: railway? are given, say "Thank you." gress for Lethbridge carried on far- further. Approval ;oi past ac tipns will be the encouragement for future similar actions. Approval of the present policy means sanction for its continuance- "What reaso s can be shown why the policy Lethbridge the great should not- continued let them say so by voting for W. A. Buchanan, the ment candidate, who as a member of the Government party in tte House and as a citizen will see that the policy of the Government ani Ms own personal efforts will be con- tinued in Lethbridge's behalf, A vote for Buchanan ioeans a vote for the Rutherford policy and for a strong representative in the Legislature. There no sound reason ;or voting otherwise. W. C. IVES IN "DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE Mr. Ives, the Conservative candi- date, seems to delight in putting himself in the most inconsistent posi- tions possible. A few nights ago he stated that long before, the .last Do- minion election, before Mr. Bordeii had visited the city, he had believed in and advocated a law providing .for a weekly..payment of wugss. But during only the last few months while an alderman of the city he, niade no move whatever to have the city employees paid every week. He loudly protests .his desire to see the THE LABEL The workingmen of this city ate interested not only in the legisla- tion which has been passed in interests but also in the prospects >'f future legislation. The two main points that are up discussion in this election are the thirty-fooi clause in the Workmen's Compen- sation. Act and the use of the; union lable on all Government printing. With regard to the latter, the mem_ bers of the Government who have been asked about the matter have given definite statements. Hon. W: H. Gushing received the following letter from the secretary of the Calgary Trades and labor Coun- Dear behalf, of the Calgary Typographical Union, I would, rek quest you to state, that if elected in the approaching provincial election, you will be in favor of Jhaving the typographical union, label put upon all government printing? Your answer by return for publica- tion purposes, will oblige. faithfully, S. BUBNAND. His reply was clear and definite n the following Dear to yours of the 6th instant, I may aay that if elected I will be in favor of having the typo- graphical union label placed upon all government printing. I might adi that all the printing for onr Tel-j ephone Department now being .done in this city in a union office.': Yours faithfully, W. H. GUSHING. Hon. C. W. Cross, attorney-general that doughty champion of the labor cause, also gave a statement as clear strong M Mr. Cuahintfs and promised to use his influence to have the .label on. all Government printing as he was in favor of such a step. Premier Butherfprd and Hon. W. T. have not had the matter put up to them .but there is every reason to believe that they are heartily in syjnpathyvwith the promises made their colleagues. As lor the position of .Mr. Buchau. an, .the local candidate, it is hardly .to state that his are in the swe .place. Mad been nqmired, it qxetion, have been freely and workingmen get better wages, but while raising the salaries of a officials, he, as chairman of the city Finance Committee, neglected larger number of city labor- ers, who got no increase... And now, he comes along, with talk of a fair wage clause not being inserted in the agreements with the railways build- ing the lines whose bonds the Gov- ernment has guaranteed. One would think that he has always seen to it that the 'fair wage clause was insert- ed in all contracts he had anything tov do with. But the record of last year's City Council, of which Mr. Ives was a member, is too plain in the memories of the citizens to be- lieve that. The Council, including Mr. Ives, approved the contracts for the local improvements without hav- ing the fair -wage- clause, and it was only when the labor unions got after them that- Mr. Ives tumbled over himself to be the .first man to it .up in Council. The Herald does not believe ID- mixing municipal and provincial politics except where there is a rect. bearing. But'in this case Mr; Ives' record in the one is .a, contradiction to his -promises in th: other. Aid. Ives, in reality, was as opposite in deeds to Conservative Candidate Ives in promises as Dr. Jekyll. was to ;Mj. Hyde. The elect- ors must have faith in the deeds, be- cause they are done, and can eeenr-but the do "not show-up well in the light ol his record. OUR POINT OF VIEW Help Buchanan boost Lethbridge.
