Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 13, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta .'..A VOL I. rt r KI n 30 ROOSEVELT FOR ANOTHER TERM UGOTNWG ULLED THREE HORSES Leading Republicans Think That He is the Only Man That Can Save the Party From Being Defeated New York, May nomina- tion of Judson Harmon at Columbus as the Democratic candidate for Go- vernor of Ohio wus variously inter- preted in New York city by politi- cians of high and humble degree in the Republican and Democratic par- ties. The view which was upper- most was that if Secretary Taft is to nominated for the Presidency by the Republicans at Chicago the Roosevelt-Tuft combination in Wash- ington and elsewhere must give as- surances cither before Taft's nomina- tion or immediately afterward that the war on Senator Forakcr to elim- inate him from public life and espec- ially the efforts to prevent his re- nominated on the first ballot til but that it will by Roosevelt.

LAURIER MAKES A BIG SPEECH On the New Election Frank Concession to the History of the Franchise turn to the United States Senate must cease. Senator 'Foraker's term'in their best licks to bring about York but in other states to put expires March 3, 1909. The Ohio legislature is Republican only by two on joint ballot, J.udge Harmon is considered thc strongcflrl Democrat in the state. He has the support of all kinds of Dem- ocrats and thousands of Republicans are not unfriendly him. The Roose- velt-Tuft war on Foraker has torn the.rank and" file of Ohio Republicans asunder. The Ohio Republican State machine by the use of Federal patron age and the power of 'the Federal ad- ministration 'brought about the in- dorsement of Taft for thc Presidency, Wilkesbarre, Pa., May mine workers were in- stantly killed and more than a dozen injured this afternoon in an explosion in the Mount Lookout colliery of the Empire Coal and I ron Company near here. Taft's nomination on the first ballot, on the argument that only by such a course can Roosevelt's renomination be prevented and the inter- ests of the country saved from fur- ther smash and collapse.

Ho wished to say "at nice that lie hold himself entirely e.sponsiblc for tho bill. They had ntroduced it for what they consider- to bo good and sufficient reasons, ind it would bo his endeavor to show House what those reasons were. He did hot pretend that he was bet- er than his fellow members but he lid not believe he was worse. "I am i plain said Sir Wilfrid, "and leal with a plain question in a plain vay. 1 have no hesitation in saying that 1 am partisan, but in all fairness lo myself do not believe that I would willingly strike below the belt- in or- lor to gain an unfair advantage of opponent." Ho thought he under- stood fully the motive of tho opposi- tion to the bill and especially from the members from the province of Manitoba. They dreaded the effect of the- law of their own province, if it were to bo administered, not by tho ofiicers to he appointed by themselves but by officers appointed by tho Do- minion government. He-assured the Opposition that there wore men on tho government side of the House who' dr.-adod the effect of that law if it was to continue to administered by officers appointed by their op- ponents as would bo the if this bill wu.- not passed. If they would approach the question without any provocation but in jus- tice between man and man. it reduced itself to this: That the Opposition lid not want to go before tho country >n electoral Irsts prepared by their oppotu rits whil those on tho gov- side of the House did not care to go io.jJie country on the eloc- ooed to I'iiiHief. When order copy 3 was sent to Mulliu, if train hud not come it was his duty tit it and display signal. If it had passed it v.'u.-. his duty to report it. Tho Crown hero closed its case. Mr. then moved that th Judge take the case from the juryj and dismiss the charge, there being j no evidence, he claimed, to maintain the charge as given in the indictment. At the time he announced that the defence would call no witne.--.-ies in siiiy event. Th-- counsel then took up tin- undisputed facts of the easel and from the.-e argued that there was j no to send the oasr to jury for them to weigh the evidence, j had disobeyed no orders and had shown no wilful negligenrv. Mr. Campbell n-pli.-d briefly for the Crown arguing that charge must stand. The Judge rilled the defence as there some evidence that should be considered the jury. The court adj'Hirii'-d until eight o'olork when addresses of tho oouu- I to the jury were delivered to the premier's speech. The meiiib'T from North Toronto was as. Litter as Sir Wilfrid had been court cons and conciliatory, and though he somewhat ungraciously iudioatid 1 be acceptable, tlie Opposition offer made e did not sav that toral lists prepared by their oppon- ents. Upon the principle which regulate and determine the franchise there had been always a deep lino of clearness between tho two parties. The Li.horal party had al- ways maintained thai unless there was some reason to tho contrary, jho lists should be prepared by the pro- vincial authorities, whereas the '.'enllenien on tho other side of tho Mouse had held the unqualified opin- ion under all circumstances the lists should bo prepared by tho Do- minion Parliament.
