McKELVIE McGUIRE Sole Agents for Lethbridge. BIG EXPLOSION AT WALLACE To the Electors Of the City TO THE ELECTORS OF THE ELECTORAL DIVISION OF LETHBRIDGE CITY. As a candidate seeking your votes at this election, it is proper that you should be well advised of ray opinion on public matters, in so far as this space will permit me to advance them. At the outset let me-say that I do not propose to inflict you with a self- written introduction Many of you have known me in this city for the past eight years, and are as fully .acquainted with my acts as a that I am myself; and of my acts and my solicitude advancement76f this city and the leave you to judge.. I cannot rbelieve that it is the iionest opinion of any voter, that if elected as your representative, my actions would be other than unceasing in ad- vancing the interests of this city division as largely and .rapidly in every way as my ability would enable it to be done. 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 or stupid opposi- tion in the Alberta Assembly to all'Government measures either :past or to come, because they happen-to be fathered by a Liberal Government. It is not true. I believe I am as broad, minded as and aL legislation will have my support, or according: as '.I-believe it to be good or bad business for the. people whom arid this whether' it is a Liberal or Conservative Government that administers the affairs of the For example, the word Railways, at the present time spells a great need of the Province at large; and particularly of the city of, Lethbridge. Let me. say .therefore, that present, or any Government, will as- sistance from me. to a rapid completion, every, foot of Railway pro- jected today by the Liberal Government. We must have them, and-more of them; but I do believe that in granting such valuable :franchise6, the legislation should be carefully considered'.--before finally passed. As to the present-project of and ;the Charters granted, I be- lieve, that-the Government should have demanded in the interests of the a larger control of the proposed railways-.and their operation; more particularly because the. Board of JRailway Commis- Bibners. for Canada, no -jurisdiction -over' Provincial Railways. These railways, will be built upon the credit "of the people of Alberta, and we are assuming the liability of their construction, and jtf I. had been. in the Assembly, have 'demanded protection for the-Municipalities throughout Alberta, so that no railway company could possibly hold up the rate-payers of any municipality, by for grants or exemp- tipna'from taxation, ,as the for entering; such mnnicipality. You know, that this is theimpolicy companies taking large sums of money and getting large as the price of their eiiterihg a municipality, taken place in this rand every othier. Canadian Province. J 1-I would have-used every effort; to elirninate-from every, railway charter, all words that allowed to the railway aompany any choice as to whether it should, or- 'should not, build into :.such cities as because I believe that there should be no option, and that they: should be compelled, under the present to build into rQunicipalities: of this -size and" character without being allowed to bargain with us. to do so. the railway legislation is nowran Act of: this pro-, vince, and the. election of myself, or of a'majority of Conservatives in this Province, on March the 22nd., will not stop ;the building of railways; to this or any other point, and will not for one moment impede or" delay the advahcement, which we hope tovderive from the legislation now in force. You know, as I dp, that the railway companies will build other lines -enter this city irrespective of the way in which you cast your whether one candidate or the other, now .before you, is elected; and the assertion'that a vote for any but toe Government candidate would the delay or prevent the eacpenditure of as unwarranted and indefensible as it is the Cfovernment and your own 7' If- the expenditure of money ia the; different constituencies depends upon the election of a Government candidate, why does it cpme about that past three and a haU large have been made in the by and Hiebert, the two Opposition the Legislature, City of Lethbridge yet receive its first Government favor, although we have never [elected an Opposition cahdidate from this riding. If we are to be-lashed by the whip of Government patronage for the [exercise of-dm franchise, which we consider free, where was the necessity I lor 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 at is good business to elect only Liberal members, in which [case surely 26 Liberals can as well administer the affairs of our Province And u'.'to the representation, gentlemen, why does the it face ot population and production, give to the South a .representation of 18 members, while the-North gets 23? Do you call that Legislation in rour interests, and do you approve it? In conclusion, gentlemen, I beg to remind my old time Liberal .friends this city, of -their promise made to me at the time of the De Veber-Ives ion, that if I ever stood again they would rote for me. That was the pledge many of you freely gave. I now ask you to redeem'it, and; I also to roters toonake this a clean election, devoid of all unfortunate irrevelant words and acts. I have every respect and a warm personal feeling for each of the other candidates in the field, and I ask for them from iy supporters, the same fair and gentlemanly treatment that I expect their hands. For my political conduct, if elected, I hare before me the statesmanlike A. Magratlv. your Federal member, which I will strive to allow, whether returned the polls or not, I shall be AS ready eTer to further the interests of the City the Yours Uithiilly. W. IVEB.

Bry- Lethbriiige. 81-3 To the [lectors of Rocky Mountain Electoral District Gentlemen Having been .requested by a large number :of, the electors of this dis- trict irrespective of .party politics to offer' myself 'as candidate at the general Selections 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 of" the district :I have become intimately acquainted ivith the various needs of all classes and I therefore believe that without being egotistical, I can say that I have the- qualifications and: ability to properly. representr this constituency in the Provincial Legislature. The present Government adrniQ- 'iste'red the. affairs of "the province during .the ,past -tour years very cred- itably it has. people a great deal :of sane legislation; And as evidence of this I might mention the workmen's the eight-hour bank to (for. miners) act; the mechanics' lien act and sev- eral others. The platform-announced by the Conservative party has T also many good suggestions- which I :hope to see upon our statute books at an early date. For I may say that 1 stand first, last and always for legislation, that will protect the rights of working mea throughout the pro- vince. I also stand for improved leg- islation regarding our cities, towns and villages, and a thorough up to date system of public schools where the can obtain an education. -that v will .better prepare them, 'for the duties of good citizens. I .be- lieve also .that more money, should be spent, in .putting pur -highways' in proper condition for travel I may in conclusion that I stand disf of people '-61 the Asiatic race, such as Japs and Chinamen, These. people take no interest in our institutions and they should not be given the franchise and.
