ROBERT 'tends ail Conservative caucuses and P P. of Is speakin in Oardstonl Mr. Patterson' platform efforts do not make him 3nan to be feared, Tjut the fact tha he looted'the' farmers' -of Macleoi makes-him man whose con-due ba exposed to the farmers in constituencies. Sir. Patterson was elected as a farniers'lcandidate, a ;inan pledged to: go to the legislature .'and act'in an independent role. The returning officer had hardly declared '.him elected before Mr; Patterson has- tened to Edmonton -to attend a maet- :ing of called to select a. lea'der as successor to Mr. R. B, 'Bennett..' He subsequently.took .hia in the legislature and has given that leader slavish support. He at- Is as servile a member of that part} as can" be1 found in all Canada. Mr .Patterson deliberately used the farm ers.of .his riding to gain a seat in the and. then 'he threw them down' hard..- He is now telling the electors'that he is. a farmers' mem- ber. Mr.'Patterson should cut it out. The people know him too well. He is "a laughing stock, not a statesman. Mr Patterson's political career will terminate.; with the present leg1slaT ture. He, could not get the endoraa Ion' of ths' "farmers again, and The HeraH knows Macleod welt enough o ventUrs-the prediction that the Con servative will have..non of. him., .irho game ".Mr. Patterso ilajed can onh be plajed he same man.

No matter which candidate is elected'the voice of the people..on this.question Is the same. Admitted that the Liberals did not always occupy that position. They do now, but they are equally firm in refusing to countenance any such outrage-on decency as the at- tempt to use the fact mVa Conser- vative government being in power at Ottawa as a means to coerce the western people to vote one way or the other. -Political coercion an immoral monster. It strikes at the vitals. The people should rise and crush the monster so effectively that it would never be seen or again in Atb'erta.

There was a -report published that the Macleod statesman won platform honors. This was.nomination day in five Al- berta constituencies, stretching from the most southerly up- to the far north.
