OUR POINT OF VIEW Alberta Red has made Alberta fa- mous and Alberta has made Alberta Red possible. THE BERMONDSEY DEFEAT absence of details respect the -British bye-election held in -the Bermondsey (London) const-itu 'eticy, the result of which was pub "lished in our last issue, the hearts of the British Tories are doubtless filled 'with joy. as they learn tha Spencer Leigh Hughes, the govern merit candidate, has been defeated and that another seat has been the Asquith government. This is all the more likely to occur, consid- ering the fact that, according to cable dispatches, the contest was regardec by all parties as a of the pop- .ularity of the Budget propcsals o. Hon. Lloyd-George. Additional weigh .might be given to this impression the fact that the Liberal eandi 'date is one of the most popular, bril Mant and Radical journalists on the British press. His daily articles in ,the Morning Leader, under the sou .briquet of "Sub Rosa" and his week- .ly letter "From My Point of ander his own signature, in Key- jnolds' Newspaper (the most advanced .Radical journal in England) wherein he ihas been dealing blows that 1 are and straight" at the silly clatter and chatter of the parsons, peers and publicans against the Bud- get brought him into the limelight and shown him to be a .worthy champion of the people's rights. His defeat is, therefore, all the more disappointing. Before, however, Liberals, at home or abroad, "hang their harps on the and their jubilant oppon- ents take them down, it might be advisable to recognize that new fact- ors have been imported into the con- test, which make comparisons diffi- cult. A three-cornered contest is in-, variably a gamble and even with a majority of to fall back upon, the Liberal party could, at most, only hope to retain the seat. It is a well fenown and generally recognized fact that practically the whole Socialist vote, in English Parliamentary elec- tions, when recorded for a Socialist candidate, are that many votes taken from the Liberal candidate. By a small exorcise in mathematics it will, therefore, be easily seen that by com- bining the Liberal vote of with the Socialist vote f it brings up t'he government strength to Conservative, candidate a ilie magnificent majority to ac- leaving th 'victor by of 2. Of cour.v- this count for defeat of the. Liberal can- didate alone, but other considerations may assist in minimizing the'result, which, we readily admit, is dis- ,appointing. It i? well known that the city of London is one of the most Conservative cities in the British Isles, -and although Bermondsey has a large working class population, 'consisting chiefly of dockers and tan- ners, until the great upheave! of 1906 it has been steadily and uninterrupt- edly Conservative'since 1895. In that year 'Mr. R. W. Barrow, after repre- SQnting t.hVsi constituency for .tliroo years as a Gladstonian Liberal, was defeated by Lafone., who won by a majority of 360. In 1000 Sir John ,W. one of the sitting members for Devonport and one of the most popular members of the Conservative on >uc Lionfion Council, was defeated by H, J. C. Cust, by a majority of 300. 4 The late member of par- "tially owed his election in 1906 to the unsavory record of the prede- cessors in office of the present gov- ernment, but the greater share of his victory was the result of his own popularity in the constituency. -This clearly evident by the fact that The delegation to Billings must have come home with the sort of feeling the lacrosse or football boys have after winning a champinship abroad. NOT IN ADE'S SET The first time Mrs. the Knglish actress, to Chicago the city editor sent reporters over to in- terview .her. Among them was George Ade, then working for the Record. "How do 'you like Chicago, Mrs. he asked. "Oh, I have not been here long en- ough to answer that, but I know 1 shall like it. I am so infatuated with your country, and I know I ehall dearly love Chicago. I have met some charming Chicago people." said Ade, "whom do you "Why, I have met Mr. Armour and Mr. Fairbanks and 'Mr. Higinboth- am and several others.
