NGLEGIIN GREAT RECEP REDCLIFF PEOPte DELIGHTED OVER BEING PLACED,. ON ELECTORAL MAI? . (By H. F. Gadsby). Edmonton, March 27.-"Yes," said; the Alberta longhorn, tipping his elbow a little higher. "We've fired all the grit postmasters and other ol^ci-als, and we are going to win the province if we have to poll the buffalo at Wamwright to do it. Besides we i'liave got Bob with us this time." This v/astlie talk iii the saloon ahd the-Hob alluded to was the Hon. Robert Rogers, late ol Manitolia', more lately ot the Saskatchewan gen-, eral election, still more lately of'tlie Macdonaid bye-election, present address, , i-IoUBC. of' Commons, Ottawa, occupation, minister of PuWic works; pastime, showing Imw he can swing the west by the .tail ; ultimate ambition, incredible as it may seem, the premiership of Canada. Bob is alleged to be with them to the extent of $300,ff00, that being the amount mentioned as the oil barrel for the Alberta election. Bob had come excuse in the Mac- the same token too Liberal for the minister of public works to spread himself over effectively. However, he did hia best, and it the .voters had only stood by him things would liave been quite difler-ent. He hopes to do better m Alberta, which has had little experience so far, of the long reach of the black hand with the little black has;. Alberta is new ground with the Hon. Robert; and he has great expectations.- Prom now on-take little Orphan. Annie's word for it, tlio goblins will catch you if you don't look out. .Tlie goblins belong to Bob Rogers, and they are busy little goblins that know their business. Bob Rogers IS not aman w^ho believes nriaith i-without; worlts. That is to say, he, always gives his piug-frers something to work with. Money is a good soldier and will march. Bob's Long Suit The Rogers gang alscxl have in their kicks, threats, promises., and other dpnald bye-election, wlierc ho knew j blessings':with a strin-gtiaStached, but the old,gum shoe trail, but was poor ifirst and l�st their m^iViistay is the hunting in. Saiskatohewan, which is I long green. Bob ' Rogfeirs has a pot too large a part of the map, and by | of money-left overfromWtlie campaign of 1311, and this, with accumulations since js said to make a little prize of over $400,000, which is hung up for the Conservative party in Alberta if it can prove that it has an organization- While this leaves it up to the local Conservatives it docs not take it away from Hob, it is not his habit to let anything get away from him. without value received, in a word it is I3oh's agents who will do the distributing. .Some moralists would call this $100,000 a reP-( tile fund ; the Hon. Dob would re-g!�rd it more leniently as bread upon the waters.' Bob's thugs are piling in bv every tram. They have a lot to do anil three weeks is a,short time to do it in. A composite photograph of the Rogers hosts would reveal a thin man with a ciglit mouth and a shiftv air. If that general description isn't enough look every new homestead inspector in the ribs and see if he quails. If he does not quail that way shake him down or turn him face down and feet up and see what drops out of his pockets. (Continued on page 7).
