Donald McNabb, M.1M'. The convention held at the Labor Hall Monday last to adopt a plat-, form and select a candidate to con- test the "bye-electiou in. this district lor the. Legislative Assembly of Alber- ta, will be long remembered by those who were privileged to be present. There-were thirty-five trades unionist delegates in "attendance and thest rep- resented some 1300 members, There also present four Socialist del- egates, representing eighty members. er several delegates had spoken, D. McNab asked both parties to agree that it was mpossiblc to elect a man. on Jaiist ticket. "Put the candidate on u platform to said Donald. The eader.of the Socialists, in replying, eviewed the life and death of lubor >ur.tics in the provinces, and further tated the election could not be won confining the. platfonn to trades mionism. It was early evident that there was to be a battle Socialists ami the-straight "Labor" party. .Sev- eral diplomatic attempts were maxle to put the leaders of; both parties out of business iii the selection of a chairman. Frank. Sherman Brown Pipes, and Sid Duncar refused to accept this '.office and T. W. Kanraban linalli consented to weild the gavel ov er the first convention of the Indepen dent Labor Party of Lethbridge. The Socialist party was under thy S. Tuckwell that the undated esigtmtion scheme adopted, but Sherman pointed out that this was illegal. Among who were! lominatcd but declined were Clement Htubljs, T. S. Harold, Jj. Quigloy, F. If. Sherman, J. ilcTaggurt, II. Ev- tns, Kelsey, .Jos. Uitchic and Sid Duncan. The four who allowed their names to go to the ballot were D. McNab, Brown Pipes, It. J. Bai- dry and S. W. Tuckwell, and the vote resulted in the former securing the verdict by a largo, .majority, which was ultimately made unanimous. In selecting Donald McNab to carry the labor banner, the convention have adopted not only a very strong can- didate, but a very intelligent one. He is a miner, and is a former president of the local Miners' Union No. 504, U.M.W. of A. Those who have had the pleasure of listening to him will agree that 110 man has a more thor- ough gsu.sp of the questions allecting labor and it goes without saying the Socialist platform, was.wlierc the] the lattcr Socialists, were turned down rather unceremoniously, ed its adoption, had stated that Mr. Sherman xnov- After Brown Pipes the delegates who voted, in favor of this thu advocate in the Assembly at Edmon- ton, lie is well worthy of the honoi and I offer him the. heartiest corigrat ulation. The choosing of a name for. the par- ty was the first order of business, and whjan it wjis proposed to give it the name of the Independent Labor Party, the Trades and Labor Coun- cil were accused of having the whole program cut and dried.
