Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 12, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta , 1 1 - - ^ ? Iticsday, Noyciiiliei* 12 ill ninth standing 6f the candidates ARE HOLDING FRST PUCE POSITIONS IN THE RACE With only Thirty More Days to go to the Finish and Fourteen More Days of Second Voting Schedule, " Work " Should Be the Keynote I Flvo caiidldatea havp "hewed to the line." Five are runulng neokamJ-Jiook in the-paper. Mow many more could reach,the 155,000 is not for this departintml to tell-evcu If wo know-and wo don't know a thing about it. While uot quite leuriiuK today, the largest gain way made by Mr. GeMUi D'llraage of Bow Island. There is no niUtaUlng (hat this young man means biisineaa-with a big B. . Mr. J. A. Bidanlt, afior falling back a bit, Is again in the stride today. The syateni of rest-Ing a little and putting on a burst of speed breaks the monotony ot a steady drive tmd besideE Is &� good method of campaigning. Mr. Stephen Negrey, while not old In yeors, is a very old -inttler in the city of Lethbrldge. Whether the fact of his long residence here has anything to do with his vote-getting ability or not, ho l-j jnaking mighty good In the contest. Mr. J. R. Ucvlll, hi- of "always enthusiastic' fame, comes to the front again this evening, Mr. Rovlll Is a very busy man these days-looking after Bis biislncM Inlere'Jls and the getiltig of subscrlptionB as well. Vra. N. C. Stibbe called at the contest office yesterday and carefully counted out e.xactly Sil.OOO votes for the standing today. On account of the restriction being takea off the voting. Mr�. Stibbs speculated quite a bit as to wbot the other candldatfj would likely do next Thursday. M'lss Thelma Vogan. always stnlling, always happy, iievoi- in a bad humor, who'hUB never missed a day In calling u-t the contort office, paces right along with tho beat of them In the voting. - Besides the above. Miss Vivian Barbour and ^Miss Agnes Pelielier have joined ;.the Century Club-over 100,000 votes-today. This club has sfi.vteen members, with ieveral applioatious to be voted on this week. After the short lull In subscription, reports, business is commencing to bo quite brisk at the contest ofllce. However, thero Is much of the subscription field to be covered yet. M'itb only a few ovei- .".00 of tho old sub--acribers recorded as making a payment during the contest, it is plain that there is much "fertile ground" to bo covered yet. This "I paid another candidate" stuff don't go. for we have an alphabetical list of all the subscribers who have paid lu tlie contest. The candidates want the votes, so. Mr. Subscriber, come along with that subscription. The Herald won't cost any more .now, than after the content is ovet;. Mr. Robert Pake,, of KIko, B. C. enters the contest today. The territory to the west, we will say, from Hosmer on as far as the Herald circulates. Is an unworlted field. The candidates who so far have represented that district'do not'seem tohaVa bfeefti'alive to the situation. It Is NOT too late to start under the pircnmatances. At Port Arthur two years ago a can-dlciato headed the list with sixteen days' work. At liau Claire, Wis., a candidate won first lu three weeks. Other instances could be mentioned where candidates who have come in when the contest was over half over, have oome out well. While tke time Is half over, the best part is to come. The Us; four weeks is really the contest period. NEW RULE FOR VOTING Kor the ne.vt standing of the candidates, the liiult of the number of vote-j b caiididate may Increase his or her score has been lifted. Any reasonable number will be published. Make your own guess, send to or leave yonr votefl at the contest office. It is a good plan to stand well in the paper, but It ii just as good a plan to p]16 up a reserve-and the number you have that are not voted keep tlie moat sacred secret, Get 'em-that's the most Important of all.

How serious ' the position had become on tho eve of! the opening of Prince Ferdinand's rule i was shown by the sudden rising 'of' pro-Uusslauti, which drove Prince .\lex-ander from tUn country.

SAMUEL G0MPER8 Veteran president of the American against a fight for hi* freedom for Federation of Labor, who is again up rlleged conspiracy against ernployers of labor. more difficult task scarcely ever before faced a ruler. But he.acted wisely from the opening of his relgu. He began fay stud.vlng his ptBoplo thoronighly; by obtaining Ihelr point | of view. He was not going to rule at people v.-hom lie did uot wholly under- j stand. At llrst ho took but Mitle act-J Ive part in politics; he allowed purtlea to develop slowly in their own way. � No Mere Figurehead | lll.s tUtit desiro. he declared, was to j be ruier of Bulgaria, to work for Bui- \ .garia's yood. Beyond that ho-hud noi ambitions. C.iadually the inifuenco of { his strong personality was ftdt in the! \Vork of ellininating everything which might glvo tho powers a pretext to in-lerfere. Peace brought the inevitable i re:^ults. Party politics Ijecnnie moie \ ordered; prosperity Increased. Bul-i garia gradually became strong and j hopeful. . Tljo development . of the. country wont forward with surprising rapidity. FtVdinanil, however, was no mere" liguruhoad. When occaiion demanded j he could grasp the ruddur of state' with certain hand. One of the most striking ol his actions was that duplicate of the Kaiser William's move; when Ik "dropped his pilot," Bis- j muvck. V^Civ Stu:ni>u!ov llulgarln bjjgijn to attract by Its policy the attention of Kufope. Bm the pilnco tav,- dingers ahead if lib energetic minister were allowed to go on. Slaiabulov was a man of strong sympathies and vUileut antlpathloH, His pai-ty dwindled; opposition grow; and the stronger his opponents bucamo, tho valuer, the keener ho grow', the more qu'.ckly son-Bltlvu to opposition, more dotevranled than ever to punsuc his uutl-Rus-.-ilun policy. So Prince Ferdinand iu IS'J-f "dropped his pilot"-and no one was more surjilsed than tho pilot liimBolf. liur-i ope, 4vlilch, as the prince said on one j occasion, "knows far too llitlo ot Bui-1 garia," predicted riot and rohellion,! but tho prince v/hb sure of his people. \ Wheio Stainbvilov in hla arrogance and vanity had been blind, Ferdinand yaw clearly. The people desired friond-; ship with Russia, and Stanihulov's fall; brought it about. There can bo noj doubt that Ferdinand acted wisely, for; to stand In the good graces of St. Petersburg has done much of lato year.i to .strengthen his country's position in the Near Efist. Two great roform'j which King! Ferdinand has directly inspired are i those of tho financial and rolUtaryi systems of the coiihtry. The (list was really ssriously faced in 1899, and in th
