Against this is the sale of 000 worth of debentures in London December, out of which was Paid ut once the total expen- diture up to January, 1909. For the present year's large programme of construction mid operation. 000 is the estimated expenditure, so that a year hence the' provincial tele- phone assets will include over 2.500 miles of lines and cash on hand, with largely increased reven- ue from .19.10, greater than the verv estimate made for the current year. With' all this it is to be recalled that Alberta's system sup- plies telephones in rural districts for which is the cheapest rate in Ca- nada for such phones. Likewise it has made a reduction of 25 per cent, in Ions; distance rates. t I TtAlv f A i ff s 'f f wLg A'mass meeting: of men belonging to the, various trader unions of the city was held lapt Friday nijrhb and the hundreds of men present express- ed in no uncertain way their approval of Attorney-General Cross as a can- didate for re-election.

But in his opinion the farmers of Alberta were not eivinc sufficient attention to hog- raising and as yet, the province's sup- ply was small. One lesson farmers had to learn in this respect, he said. was to stay in the business during the period when prices were low as well as in prosperous times. They had already learned that in Ontario.

In this campaign we have before us the Railroad Policy of the Ruther- ford Government. This policy, if endorsed by the people means that Southern. Alberta will be provided with the railroads it so much during the next'year or two. Both the Grand Trunk Pacific and Canadian Northern Railways have undertaken to construct" lines into the South aud with Lethbridge as practically the terminal point.' The coming of theae railroads means the opening .up of vast .stretches of country all about and the consequent development of this city as the industrial, wholesale and commercial capital of the South, as well as making it-one of the greatr est railroad, centres of the West, In asking for your votes and influence'I do so because I believe the duty of this city to return a supporter of this Government" with its advanced railroad, policy, in order that the Premier and his colleagues will understand that we appreciate their effoits to build up Lethbridge and that our interests may be protected and advanced by a man on-the spot. Personally I have great faith in this city and the South country, and if I am honored with election to the Legislature it will be my-mission persistently advocate the claims of our city and district, and to impress upon the Government our requirements. I believe it is: very necessary at this time that Lethbridge should be represented at Edmonton by a supporter of the Government. Lethbridge should 'have a representative who can be the most closely in. touch witk the Government and its policy in order that the interests'of the city as the metropolis of the South may be best looked after. More railways, tele- phone extensions, a land titles office and other matters will be needs of this district and as these and many other matters matters of policr with the Government it is necessary ttiat a member with the confidence, of the cabinet be at Edmonton to influence the policy.of the cabinet in; Leth- bridge's favor. The record of the Rutherford administration in other respects is one of work well and faithfully done, and I maintain there is no argument to be offered in favor of its defeat. It has been honest, fearless and pro- gressive ami deserves an other lease of power. Large combinations of capital if uncontrolled by the Government tend to work oppressively on the people as a whole-. The Rutherford adminis- tration has shown itself to be alive to this fact, for by its prosecution of the Lumber Combine it succeeded in breaking up an institution whose express object was the exploitation of the masses for the benefit of a few. This administration has further demonstrated a desire to work in the interests of the people by forcing the Bell Telephone Co. to relinquish its holdings in Alberta for a reasonable consideration, and now we have a telephone service throughout, the Province under Government control and management. .Rural linei arc being established as rapidly as the revenue will permit. The interests of the man who labors with his hands have during 'the past few years engaged the attention of legislation in many countries and especially on tins continent. Awake to the importance of this kind of legislation the' present Government of Alberta has achieved an enviable- record. It has placed upon the Statute Books some of the most advanced jlubor legislation that has yet become law in any country. The Mechanic's Lien Act, the Eight- Hour Bank to Bank'. Law and the. Workmen's Compen- sation Act are all measures UIP object'of which is to ameliorate the condi- tion of the toiler by affording to him approved means of earning a livelihood and by giving him a cheap and effective recourse against those who might deprive him of the, fruits of his labor.
