Acceptance of papers after ejcplrnUon date Is our authority to continue the attb-Ecriptiob. |the progress .|0f the war it The Austro-Gernian advance has I once more been checked by the||ians and reports from It.ilian head-'II quarters indicate that they will be Eable to hold the enemy successfully. Kerensky is obtaining increasing support in his efforts to regain control of the situation ?n Russia. He set by other constituenpies so admirably. The action of S. BbU, named as 'a Conservative candidate three years ago and before the people of Canada came to a full realiiation of the seriousness of the crisis and the great need for an united front to the enemy both at home and in the trenches, In wlthdrav'lng his name as a straight party candidate and in then nominating his former political opponent, as he did yesterday not only deserves the greatest commendation but will be remembered in the years to come as the action of a man actuated by the highest sense of his patriotic duty. His example will go far towards cementing the new relationship between former political opponents in this riding so that the Union government supporter may be returned at the coming election. Mr. Buchanan has never, since the conscription issue came to the front at Ottawa, left any doubt as to where he stood when the question of upholding the hands of the boys who are fighting Canada's battles at the front is concerned. And on Monday, on the occasion of his first,opportunity of facing a public gathering of the electors of the constituency since his re- W. A. 1 (CoNTismtD rnoir Fbowt Paob) lately formed Is pledged to the gieat purposes before mentioned and Is representative of the great parties and Industries of the country. Therefore it is resolved that It is necessary for the safety of the country that th� people of Canada unite, forgetting their previous party aftilin-tlons, for the purpose of supporting the Union Government and of giving that government a. national mandate to take without fear' or favor such steps as � may be necessary to deal with the problems arising out of the war, and,to'the end that Canada may take >her proper part in the fight tor freedom^ and the preservation of democracy. And it is further resolved that this convention hereby pledges its support to a Union Governmeht cat^didate to bo nominated by this convention. Political Differences Burlisd ^ At this point in the proceedings W. S. Ball proceeded to the platform and in one of the best speeches he has ever made he put the name of W. A. Buchanan before the convention. Mr. Ball said that the occasion reminded TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 1917 -* PICKED MP IN IPQR THM J^USY MAN victoria, B-Ci, Uberal formed an association. unlouiBls turn from Ottawa, he reaffirmed the | ^ the^-g,^.^^Jhen Goo^^^^^^^^^^ stand taken by him in the House.

A CONVENTION IWARKED by i SERIOUSNESS AND EARNESTNESS Yesterday's union convention for : tlie Lethbridge federal constituency : saw men, who in the past had been keen political opponents, casting prejudice and partisanship to one side and agreeing that in the best in-. Xet&si% of Canada and the winning,of the war, it was desirable'that unity ; should prevail. The war was conceded to be the uppermost problem and the adoption of drastic war measures, by . a government made up of men of all ' political parties, was recognized as vitally necessary to the maintdnance of our forces at the front. The line difference between union and anti-union candidates is marked. The union, candidate clearl;? stands- unqaailfiedly for conscription of men, wealth and resources and^any anti-UHlOD candidate, it pledged to the �uppt>n of the policy promulgated by Sir Wilfrid Laurier, must be recognized as apL opponent of the Military 9ervJce. A^t True,, this opponent will admit that he will support con-criptlon i: it is carried onya refereu Idnm. What will ho do if the referendum; fails to carry as it certainly will? Efepend upon voluntary support? That wUrbe his alternative and if voluntary effort falls,' as it would, what then? Canada's forces at the fi-ont veould diminish and with no results from YOluntary effort, we would 4fop out of the war. There is no question but that would be the outcome. Vol-litary effort will not succeed, no Matter sunder how favorable the 11 auspices undep- which a voluntary! qampaign la conducted. Anyway, selective military service Is the democratic method of raising ail army. If protects vitally Important war industries jtnd selects for war service only the men who can be actually spared. ^ Ifr.'Buchanan, the union candidate, �will place the case'for union govern-ipent'and selective military service, 48 v.-eil as all the other issues of the day before the electors in a series of meetings to be held all over the constituency. Once the situation is clearly understood by the people we are satisfied, union government will be indorsed on polling day. : The convention was made up of ser-(pUB men, determined to bury  party prejudice and concentrate their whole energy upon bacliing up the brave liien fighting for us in Europe. Pat riotlBm rather than partisanship in-B^ired men. THE LETHBRIDGE FEDERAL NOMINATION The patriotic citizens of ths new Ijethbridge feUeral constituency sjiould' not find it difficult to find cause.for, rejoicing over the action of tpJ9'union convention in unanimously U^mllaK {I supporter of the new Un-i"r.JOn government at their convention in the city on Mondaj;. The unanimity of aqtlon'which marked the choice of Jfr., Buchanan by men of both the , great p6Uti,c:al parties should be the The Imperial Oil Co. Invested ?25,-000 in Victory Bonds at Lethbridge. That's a nice subscription but we mustn't 'forget that' a lot of money has been taken out of Lethbridge by the Imperial Oil Co. in recent years. Just think ot the gasoline^that has \ greatpst eacourageroeut to the people" ^^^^ consumed here this vear, alone. \ of Southern. Alberta who have done icy which will provide that Canada do her full share in the war. and he left no doubt either that he supported Union government because the one big problem of the government was to enforce the n^llifary service act and other'measures for the conscription of Canada's resources to that end. He has not abandoned those principles of tariff on which the Liberal party has fought its battles in the past. He has not abandoned the west to the, interests of the. east. But just as Lloyd George's bitterest political opponents of times past are behind ^ him, supporting him now to the end that Britain may win this -war for the future safety of the Empire andf of demo-., cracy, so has Mr. Buchanan laid aside for the duration of- the' war his old party principles which have to do with Canada's domestic problems in order that he may get behind Sir Robert Boyden and his new union cabinet on the great question which has to do with Canada's^ whole future^the winning of the war. It is because Mr. Buchanan has taken this stand that Mr. Ball and his supporters have disparaged a party fight at this time and thfb'wn their support to the union nominee. With that spirit prevailing on both sides, and a determination to fight for the success of the party of the big isane, there should be no doubt ot the result on December 17th when the returns from the Lethbridge constituency are received.' � can Kerensky come back? All hail, . th� thousand. Hail Co.'s thirty The Military Service Act is the chief Issue of the election, i The Farmer's Hail Co. believes in Canada even though Canadian weather occasionally brings it losses in h^il storms. Unless there is a really important issue to be decided, wh^ can't a municipal election in Lethbridge be avoided this year.) A contest between union government and a Laurier Liberal means a clean cut issue between conscription or no conscription, staying in the war or getting out. The Llbei'al convention at Edmonton put itself on record against the Military Service Act. That fact, with all that it means, must not be overlooked by the elector's. The proof of the .value of the Victory loan ii in the Investors. The Parmer's Hail Co. invests its surplus in Victory bonds, because 5 1-2 per cent, is a good rate and Canada is a reliable client. : their part so magnificently in the war 80 far-^not bepaUse Mr, Buchanan was named particularly, but because of the fact that the action of the convention will prdre beyond any ^, ipanner of doubt that the sincere peo-'%' pie of this constituency in Canada, ^e ^ehind the unioQ governmeiit oJt , Hobert Borden which haa'pledged ^s^lteelf to the one great task of carry-if Canad'a'B part iu this struggle to" at" pupce^ssful conclusion. It is the l^Jted'action ot former political opi pMe!!Q,t8=.. rather �than the selection of' .^y'lWtipiilar standard bearer -which ]� the outstanding feature of union �!5miua;.la�B these days, and we are giad'ttble to say that Lethbridge fe'^fdustUuency has upheld the record Uoiids!' able to judge the great majority of the right thinking people of Canada -svere in favor of union, government. The meeting had been called for the purpose of choosing a union candidate, and there were plenty ot indications that the meeting was union in its composition when S. J. Shepherd and Hugh Boyd, and Fred Karren and Geo. Heathershaw cai^' be brought together in a common political aim. "�While l' have been the Conservative candidate in this riding for the past three years along straight parly lines, I have withdrawn in favor of the candidate to be named here today by this convtintion. I have endeavored to do what many men around me today are doing, what men from Halifax to Victoria, are doing, put, loyalty to Canada before loyalty to I my ^ political party. There are many ' men here who have been loyal sup-portervof both political parties. Both parties have had^ great principles in the past, but men the country over have put these principles to one side for the present in the -best interests of their country. We have had forced on us a war such as theworld has never before witnessed. We have com'e to a realisation of the fact that it will, take an iTHlted front to win the struggle and that is what we are doing here teday. I know, it is hard for some of us Conservatives to accejrt other members of the government, v We are all sacrificing. It is hard for a party man to throw aside party feelings and^ support a man he has been fighting all along. But men are doing that^^all over Canada, and . for that;, reason I have resigned my party ribminatiqn to support the man^I am about to nominate. I am going to ask all stip-porters of union government to support that man. Mr. Chairman, I take-great pleasure in now placing in nomination the name 0(� W. A. Buchanan, (cheers), who would have been my opponent had union not been consummated. I take this opportunity to ask Conservatives of this riding to support him most enthusiastically and mbst heartily. I am going to support him to the best-of my ability and I ask my former supporters to work just as hard for^ his election as they would have worked for my own. We are going to have,opposition in this riding. A , convention has been, called to meet'in Lethbridge on the 16th to name a man. We must not be asleep at the switch." / Tribute to Mr. Ball At the conclusion of Mr. Ball's speech, which had been most earnest and straightforward, the delegates rose to a jnan and cheered the man who had ^criflced personal amblliions for the sake of unity in thls"~hour of crisis. It was a great tribute to Mr. Ball and one that he will long remember. Farmer Seconds Motion . Mr. Jellift of Ral^y, in seconding the nomination, expressed .his great appreciation of the magnanimous attitude taken by Mr. Ball at this crisis in the most momentous struggle to defend the liberties of us all.^ This is no time for dissension he declared. Great Britain had gone from one political crisis to another after the start � of the war until Lloyd George had j come forward and had succeeded in ' gathering around him the best trains i of the nation, men of all political 1 stripes until a strong union govern- j ment had been formed. Russia is in j the throes of a revolution for the very j lack of th* unity which the war has \ shown to be so necessary. The United States is calling oi* the best minds of the nation today id their effort to do their -whole duty to humanity. And Canada must do t4ie same. We must have unity, ^solute, complete, in order that all the resources of Canada may be thrown into the fight. "All "honor to Premier Borden who ha, thrown off the shackles of political party and united with himself at the head of the nation's affairs the best executive heads to be found in both parties. We honor him for his stand, so what could be more' natural than that we here today should give tlie nomination of this convention to a man who looked across the Atlantic to the b'byfe weltering in the mud of j France and FlandersV, broke wltli liisi party leader and voted to uphold tlieir j ha^ds. The iron cross of iniiltary autocracy and the star and crescent of the east must give way to the cross of Jesus Christ and the liberty and freedom-ot the world." The "Ayes" Have It Chairman Hardie then put the nomination to the convention and with one great "Aye" they signified their unanimous approval. Mr. Buchanan in taking the platform amidst the wildest cheers, said he appeared before an unusual, audience under rather unuBUal ^�Ircumuta^n-^ I'f.s!. He apprdftiated the honor �w'ljiclfl K. B.
