Par Month Sl.OO Per Inch The Conservative Candidate ., Charh� A. itagrath is the strons-��t man the Conservative parly could � -have choBun as tlwir standard bearer ; but why lie was chosen is in noed of explanation. , In recent years ihivt gentleman ha� not bocn actively identified with the Cor..fow we find Mr. Magralh appearing as an Independent Conservative, nominated by a purely Con.servative Convention. Why Inde|>endent now ? Is the Conaarvative party in such a condition that it is necessary to contest a seat indeiwndcnt of it ? If so it must be worse as far as Mr. Magrath is concerned than it was in the days of the scandals and quarrels in its ministries. That is the conclusion people acquainted with Mr. Magrath's political caiwr must reach. Mr. Magrath is a very estimable gentleman. Ho has been for years a respected and foremost citizen of Sou them Allierta. In this contest he will be treated ii|irly and squarely by the Liberal party b�it he must expect to be criticized if he assumes to support Jlr. Dorden and his destructive policy and he would not have been no ' minated had he not been acceptable to Mr. Borden and his supporters. Mr. Magrath has been a citizen of the west long enough to be acquainted with the progress made by the country. Is he prepared to go upon the platform and charge the Liberal larty with lacking a progressive poll cy in its treatment of Western Canada ? Is he prepared to say that the : fiiest enjoyed greater, favor and expan -�ion previous to 1S96 ? Is he prepared to tell the pooplc that the Con wrvative party is the party that followed an imigration policy that peop-,led this land and bulH up towns iea? If bo cannot point to such a record for the Conservative party .what ground wih he stand upon ?. The hurling of insinuations upon the Liberals about land grabs, etc.? Sure ly not! for he must remember that the sale of land under Conservative nglme suffera by comparison with that of the Uberals. .( But what the people of this riding will ask Mr. Magrath is "Can you �atiafy ua that the record of the Con �ervative party ia better than that of the Liberal party?" "Can you prove that the development of Western Can :ada from the time the Conservative party gave the O.P.R. a huge land gimnt in Weatem Canada until 1896, tended to develop the T-wrt as it : ahould have been developed?" "Can you aatiafy ua that the policy of the Liberal party which has peopled this eountry whore in the days of Conservative rule the land was devoid of �ettlement, ia not in the intereirts of Western Canada?" , These are the questions Mr. Magrath must answer and if he can satisfy the iieople that the administration of nfTairs under eighteen years Conscrvati\'� rule did more for We.s-t. urn Canada than the policy of the Liberal party during the pa�t eleven yea^, then ho is woi'thy of a place In parliaiiient and entitled to bo class ,ec defeated bylaws as well as the new gas well by-Jaw conic u|) for approval by the ci-.tizcns. There should be more interest taken in these bylaws than tharo has^J�e(jh, Tlicr^i is still some feeling jthft't the bylaws that wore dcfeaitod ;sorac time ago will sufler the sanio fate. For reasons several times previously stated, the Herald believes that both should be passed. As for the gas-well bylaw, being to a considornblc e.vtont responsible for its submission, tlw Herald l>elievc.s it 'is woi-thy of the approval of the burg- C. A.

An editor walks a mile in 'H the hot sun to get the faoUs of a death or wMtding or social function and spends thrc� hours writing it up and tells lies and prai.scs people until he hai-as himself. Then if ho makes an insignilicnnt omission or error or charges five cents straight for three extra copies ho is stingy, careless, good-for-nothing old cu.ss, who never get.s anything right and charges four times the price of city papers twice as large.
