A HIGH LEVEL BRIDGE Lethbridge District. To The Elector? of District: am a candidate asking your support, not by my wish, but because strongly urged to do ?o by a very larjw number of Electors. The District is so large, and ihetinu1 befoiv Tolling Day so short, that it is utterly impossible for me to meet all of you personally, and I 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 comple- tion those things' in the interests of this District, which legislation al- ready passed, promises .you; and I will support the present, or any Gov- ernment, in any legislation which bring forward in the interests of the people of this District. J have been fanning and ranching in yuur midst for almost twenty. fire years. The older settlers know me, and to these of you who do not I refer to the older settlers with confidence. I appeal to you to drop politics and to think of your District only, and I believe that my knowledge of conditions and the wants of the peo- ple in this District will enable me to present our requirements and secure their- fulfillment. I approve of the Government policy, and by voting for me will approve of it. The two are very effort to elect candidates. Every- thing, however, is done irood nntured- ly and after the election all parties! will pull for the growth of Cardston. A i. the Cahoou the registered: J. Collins. J. R. Kecnan. Montreal; C.

Their generosity has been boundless. Take his own coa- stitueiicy, for instance. A prominent Conservative occupied the chair when lie was nominated; some more well known Conservatives stood on their feet and supported the nomin- ation, and his nomination papers looked like the subscription list of a Tory newspaper. The premier bids fair to outclass even the popularity of Sir Wilfrid Laurier. Who ever heard of Tones tumbling over one an- other in this fashion in their reckless desire to support the opposite party? In the early days' of dark days of men all over the province who dared to stand on the street corner and de- clare their Grit principles could al- most be counted on one hand? out in some of the Alberta constituencies today the Conservative who says he opposes the present government is as rare as an Easter lily in Decem- ber.

Weir, Rirer- view, Ont., writes "Last summer I had nineteen boils on my neck and back. I was off work for over two weeks. I took every- thing I could think of but to no effect. I got a bottle of Burdock Blood Bitters and before I had used half the bottle the boili were gone. I took the rest of it, however, have not had a boil since. Mrs. W. J.

Fancy- that as one of the burning is sues! Not a word about the policj of the Government; not a singi criticism of its record; not even one little objection of anything it has ever done!

The idea is too staggering the look and smell and touch of campaign literature. It really is very distressing. Then there is the Calgary Herald. Tread lightly, please!

That is something new in the his- tory of Legislatures, and the work- ingmen are the men who appreciate the change. BORDEN IS INQUISITIVE Wants Information About the Grand Trunk Ottawa, March E. L.

Mr. Fielding was dubious whether all the information required wae in the possession of the Government. He promised, however, to do the best to meet the request of the Opposi- tion leader.
