Mr. Buchanan has a claim upon j1El the support Of the worHngraan, not only because of the fact that he a candidate supporting the Butherfo-il Government but also because of the j personal interest he has shown in j ment's record and. policy in labor as matters. the glory it once possessed as y daily in Southern Alberta is no-.- shattered and hollow stub. The H'rald was throwing bouquets at the Government with exceeding gener- osity. Here is a sample flower: "Alberta has many reasons to V proud of her Government. The Ministers of the Crown have wow- ed hard to organize this new pr> vince on a sound basis. There was much to do, and much has inde '1' U.en done.

RETRACT AND REPUDIATE The Lethbridge News, the organ of W C. Ive? and the local Conserva. in yesterday's issue save labormgman's behalf. He has nev-r Plication to two partic-ilarly ob- than a. friend of the laboiiugmau an-] of labor legislation. As publi and editor of the Herald he has al- ways stood for fair play and treatment of the workingmen. As s: articles '.i j honor of W. A. Buchanan and the Liberal party in this city. Both stories are proved false. The News knows they are false. Either one c-ould have been published yesterday. The News knew emripyer of labor, he has always bevil as this in hearty sympathy with his but for political ployees and has never at any stood in their way but Las, on the other hand, wielded an influence. When the. fret. attempt was made to form a Typographic'1 Union in the city, he freely gave hN support but the attempt wa's the other punting establishment that a retraction before the' election would spoil its game. The least it can do. however, is to retract its statements in its next issue. As far as the political effect i? concerned the.News' action has materiallv Mr. Buchanan, for the urnvarrant- ofthe city. When later, the unio ed are resented by all classes formed, his support wa.s as freeV! ref Jrdless of politics: Mr. ji.ves, however, has a meeting tonight, and it is up to him to accept iff repudiate the News as the organ :given. He has never tempt to make men work for anythi.ij li-wer than union wages and today evcrv man in the establishment supporting him.

SPEECH WITHOUT KNOWLEDGE Mr. Ives' failure to study up the Alberta statutes before undertaking to criticize the Government for its alleged failure to do the things they whip cracked, and the Herald and few others came into the line of in- consistent opposition and criticism. OUR POINT OF VIEW Help Buchanan boost Lethbridge. Rutherford, Rivers and Railways. Newspapers who live in glass houses should never throw stones. In order that he may know what did do, is an answer to his eharse I he is talking about, the Herald would against the Govenmient that they leg- islated too rapidly. Mr. Jves has evi- dently gone too rapidly., and has un- dertaken to speak authoritatively be- fore he knew whereof he spoke. The provisions of the Railway Act of Al- suggest to Mr. Ives that he read sec- tions 153, 154 and 206 o! the Albqcta Railway Act, 1907, as found in the Alberta Statutes, 1907. The News' roorback proved to be a b-m, 1907, are very plain as to the i boomerang, fair wage clause, the control of loca- tion and rates, and the compensa- tion for injuries received in construc- tion. If he looks up his statutes of Alberta, 1907, he will find that the interest? of the people have been y protected in every respect. A vote, for Buchanan is a vote of confidence in the Rutherford Govern- ment. Will Lethbridge vote itself into Op- position? Not- yet. Tlie editor of the News should ex- plain to the Typographical Union how he got his information as to what on in the union'meetings, which are supposed to be secret. Maybe it is another manufactured joke. Mr. Ives denies being the star per- on a section of either forget -r I former in "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. wilfully disregard their former ex-j and says that the-City Council did passions of approval, and because i not approve of the contracts for the the Government happens to be a Lib- j local improvements tiTitil the fair Conservative wage-clause was inserted.

Now that the elections >te never of befo r 1 Berliner K.T., price now selling 1 Berliner J.T., price now selling 1 Victor IL, price now selling at 1 Berliner, G.T., price now selling at 1 Victor III., price now selling at Western Station- ery Co., Ltd. eral Government, the press and some few the clause was not considered by the contractors. He knows that when the workingmen found that the con tracts went to outside firms they eii quired as to the clause, and found i was uot in the approved contracts which had been awarded He knows that the signing of the formal' ments was delayed so as to arrange for the insertion, of the clause on the demands of the labor men. He too that the fair wage clause, even it was accepted, was but indiffer ontly observed. This is an example of Mr. Ives' complaint against Government of too rapid legislation with two little consideration. He answers his own arguments: his ac- tions debate against his words-; he is still acting the part assigned. It is estimated that there are a bil- lion and a half dollars of British capital already invested in Canada. Over two billion and a half is the amount invested in the United States British capital will, always find Can- adian resources a fruitful soiirc'e oi dividends and over here we.need the money to develop those resources. and activity on a high plane. )-ut as bolts from the blue came IT IS TO LAUGH Mr, Jvos in a few ifislits ngo questioned the wisdon; of inc'rftas- irig the number of reprt'S-entativi-'S in the Jjfgislatun1 snd maintained th'it iwonty-five could look niter the af- fairs of thf: province as a? for- ty-one.
