Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 4, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta UtHtdifattft. Al.iMtA,_Wl5N��0AV, N6vtM8tft. 4, ItM. govtrumt'Dt. .

I'l ir I mil mm t 9 'i TAFT WINS rof the ^Kird'Uioe William Jcimings Bryan haa^Men Irejeoted in Ikls ations to fill the presidential chair o( the United. StAtM..': ;>His 'defeat on each occasion has been due to the fear aroused in the vinds of the people,by the ttepublicans that hia policy was' Socialistic .and the claim that if he was t�laccd at  the White House the country would be ruined. Take the rdccnt Canipaign as an instance. Bryan stood for" many new ideas but he was not any more socialistic in his platform'than Roosevelt had been in His career as president, yet several railroads, as a sample, dcclareil openly and emphatically that if Bryan was returned wages would be reduced. Other big corporations intimated that hard times would follow the return of Bryan. So the people, as in 1896 and 1900 were frightened away from Brjan, and Taft, the nominee of Roosevelt, will sit upon the throne o,l Washington. . Bryan is dead politically now. He has had three chances and has failed to carry his party to victory. The Democrats must look for another can didate and frame a more conservative policy before they can e-xpiect to oust the Republicans from power. Br}-an is a great and good man but ho is far in advance of his porly and his country in his views as to the needs ot the United States. In years to come his political ideas may prc-vaU. Taft is a clean safe man and ought to have a successful career as president. He wus the Roosevelt candidate and is expected to carry out the Roosevelt policy. Whether he will be as much of a free lance as Roosevelt time alone will tell, but-'tis career in the past, would indicate that he would be more conservative In his actions than the present occupant of the White House. One thing is certain, the United States is in safe hands, but we could have said the same if Bryan had been elected, for Brj-an would have been just as anxious to give the people clean, honest and safe administrution as any Republican.

B., N�v. 4.-The Grand Division ot the Sons Of Temperance received a communication from Premier Hatcn and Lieut. Gov-crnot Twecdie that the question of prohibition for New Brunswick will bo considered at the nrat session of the Legislature. WANT R. L. BORDEN TO SIT FOR CARLETON THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE The people have rendered the party leaders in the election a service that they seemed unable to do for themselves. It is now up to them to take the lead given them by the electors of ridding themselves of undesirable members of their parties. Borden did not have the courage to rid himself and his party of Foster, Bennett, Lc-furg�y. Pope and Fowler, but with the exception of the first named, the pcHjple did the work for him. The vote in Ontario wus as much a discredit to Foster as it was a tribute to Sir Wilfrid l.aurier. On the other side the defeat of Burrows in Dauphin points out to the government that the people think that his operations have not been legitimate. Sifton'a narrow escape from defeat at the hands of a weak candidate like Daly would indicate that the people of Brandon constituency do not believe that he is free from blame for the operations of Burrows. Sir Wilfrid's majority is largo enough to per mit him to take a firm stand against those who may iiossibly bring the party into disrepute. He is dependent upon no man or clique for power and being placed in an independent position he i^ enabled to dictate to his followers and to resist any sinister influence that politicians are so often subjected to. The people have given both leaders a good lead and It is for them to follow the advice of the people. Strang* Proposal for Saw-off of Fsdtral and Local Seats in Nova Scotia Halifax. N. Nov. 4.-A remarkable saw-ofi proposition is said to have been made by the Conservatives of Nova Scotia, which, if accepted, would pUt an end to the scheme for letting Mr. J. G. H. Bergeron run in Carloton, Ont. The local Conservatives want Mr. Borden to sit for Carleton himself and to vacate hi.s Halifax scat in favor of Mr. Rocho or some other Liberal candidate, by an agreement under which Charles E. Tanner would be allowed � to go back to the Legislature without opposition in Pictou. ^[r. Tanner resigned to run against Mr. Macdonald for the Federal seat, and was very badly beaten. He is wanted as the leader of the local opposition, but the Conscr\-atives do not quite,see how they are to get lum''bttck. Even if the proposal wore otherwise .acceptable, it ia rather doubtful if the Liberals of Pictou would endorse it, as Mr. Tanner is not personally popular among iiis opponents there. TllE CORRES^NpIfiNT WAS SLblsli'V (Toronto Suttifdoy Night) Somo j-ears ago when Sir Oliver Mowatt.^.was .on his death bod,, tho caioom with which ho was hold by the pubile-1h��etven for business on Saturday, November the 7th. When the .stock is all displayed, the store will represent a. handsome appearance as being well lighted and with its high ceiling it is an ideal store for a hardware stock. Mr. ilc-Keowu states that they have been do layed in getting some of tho fittings which were being specially made, but that the bulk of the stock is here, but iu such quantities that it will take the full staff at least a week to get it unpacked and di-splayed on the shelves. 1' nMtives had got out all their votes, and that the Liberals had evidently got out u larger vote, which had not been coming out at all in other recent olec-tif>ns."  * ANGLICAN YOUNG PEOPLE'S MEETING The Anglican Young People's Association, held its first regular meeting in tho vestry of St. Augustin's church on Monday evening.
