Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 1, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta A MCW HOSPITAL The, it that Lethbridfe will probably have a new hospital, larger and better thac has been, will be welcome news to'the people of the city, aad there no doubt but what the citiaeus will give their hearty ap- ptpval of a grant being made for this purpose. The offer of a gift of thirty- thousand 'dollars is something that the, city cannot afford to turn down, especially when a larger hospital is so badly needed. The accommoda- tion at the. present hospital is in adequate to meet present demands Bade upon it to say nothing of what the'future growth of the city and dis trict will bring. While the conditions accompanying the "gift are not known, it is verj improbable that there will be an} attached that would prevent the hos pital being in every sense of the word a public general hospital. That the kind wanted and if the gift not provide for such an institution the city shbuUTprevail upon the don- nor to make his gift iu that way. In thus following the desire of the great bulk of the citizens, council could not reasonably be accused of looking a gift horse in the mouth. The gift, it is understood, is to be made to the'jcity and the city as a whole will provide the balance ol the funds necessary. Under these.cir- cumstances the hospital could not be other than- a city hospital. Kr.

Frank Oliver, Minis- ter of the Interior, discuss the" public questions of the day. Mr. Oliver is the representative of the prairie provinces in the Domin- ion Cabinet. No man better under- stands conditions in the West and no man has given closer attention to the requirements of the country. The amendments to the Land Bill, which made more pronounced than ever, the Liberal policy of the "land for the settler" originated with Mr. Oliver and were carried through the House ot Commons under his guid- ance. The services rendered to Canada and the Empire by the young Canad- ians who served as soldiers during the recent war in South Africa, were fittingly remembered by the passage of an Act of Parliament, making each of them a free grant of land of 320 acres as a bounty. Mr. Oliver is also responsible for this very commendable measure. As an administrator Mr. Oliver has taken front rank. His conduct of the Interior Department has been of a character to win praise from even some of his political opponents. Not a single charge has been di- rected against his administration. Mr. Ames, the magic lantern scandal peddler of the Opposition, admitted that he could not criticise Mr. Oli- ver's policy as minister of the Inter- ior. .The West knows aad values Mr. Oliver as an honest and upright pub- lic man, who is devoting his services to the development of this country. He will be sure of a royal welcome in this city. His address should be heard by all classes of citizens, as his exposition of the issues in the campaign will be lucid and frank. It is worthy of mention that in 1896, when Mr. Oliver first entered the Dominion Parliament at Ottawa, he represented the entire province of Today Alberta has seven members.- The increased represen- tation is almost entirely due to the wise and progressive policy of de- velopment of the Liberal government, and most especially of the Depart- ment of the Interior. That depart- ment gave world-wide publicity to the possibilities of this country andj as a result population flowed in rap- idly. The fertile lands were develop- ed. The nation's wealth was wonder- fully increased and the population of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba has advanced by over 100 per cent, in the five years between 1901 and 1906. cils'of the nation a guidance that is worthy of its destiny. In accepting the nomination so heartily tendered by the Liberals of-my native coun- ty, and in support of the electors, I trust vthat' the sacrifice I am making ia resigning my. present position to devote myself to the larger duties of life will be of itsell sufficient to show that I have no end in view but the well-being of the people at ambition to serve but that of contributing to the hap- piness and prosperity of our com- mon country." There is "no moral that statement, as the Toronto Globe, well remarks.

The suggestion is that the of- ficial wrote in the figures and 1 put the cash in the envelope! and declared that the tender was the I highest. "The official of the Department who opened the tender, was J, G. Turriff. He was examined before the Public Accounts Committee and swore that he did not do this.
