The government has been robbed ..of huge -sums of money and the most bare-iaced grafts nave been carried out. These matters have been taken up in the public press not Irom a party political standpoint but from Ihfc standpoint of national well- being. The Democratic party, how- its campaign one of scandal. They have found greater and higher subjects upon which to appeal for the support of the electors. They "have a platform of political issues. But on our side of the line what a difference. Admitting for'the sake of argument thai there may b- maladministration, in some ments, would not the Conservative party appear in a better light before the if things for the courts and the Parliament to attend to? Would jr not for them to come bef the of the country with a platform of politics instead' of one petty "scan- dal and abuse? But they cannot rise to such heights, -fttandoning all hope of -attaining to statesmanship, the party leaders have settled down to a political life of muckrakers and scan- dal gossips. They hope to attain power in not so much to control the. destinies of th- nation as to get control of the treasury ch NOT LIKE FOSTER The Conservative -press who persist in stating that Government candi- dates and ministers are offering con- stituencies almost anything in ord-r to secure votes, should take notice of Hon. Frank Oliver's statement to the electors of Medicine Hat concern- ing the Stralheona Hdfcse. He frankly tells that they cannot hope to have this body of soldiers located there, although a statement to the contrary would probably assist in i securing votes as the people of the Hat have set' their hearts on this thing. This utterance placed along- side of Hon. Geo. E. Foster's attempt to bribe Prince Edward Island with a tunnel shows not only the differ- ence in the calibre and honesty of the two men but also the difference in political tactics employed by the Government and the Opposition. vative etUtiMte govern- meat "a majority'of ten.

".MR. REID'S SALARY. Tn thi Herald's estimation Super- mtendent Reid, of the electric _ und water works plants, deserves batter salary than he is- receiving now.

A man -assumin those responsibilities should be pro psriy paid. Some of the recent in c.-eases in salary the Herald is no in ncccrd with.

He came to Leth- bridge and reports conditions here in this way: "On a square in Leth- bridge, which consists of five said Mr. Parker, "you could hardly walk over it without stepping on a man. There were ten men in Leth- bridge to every one that th.-re was required." To say that the said Parker lies is putting it mildly. Thfire were never men lying around on the public square for him to walk over unless it was h? himself was so drunk that he fell down and walked all over him- self. It is true the C. P. R. sent an overabundance of harvesters here at the wrong time but at no were there anything lik? ton men for every job. He said in another part of his interview that he hung around for thirty days waiting for the time to go home. No man who wanted to work ever waited around this city for thirty days unable to secure em- ployment. The Review should exer- cise care in publishing the words of men who came West expecting to pick up five dollar bills without working for them and should forsake its apparent persistent policy of knocking the West. OUR POINT OF VIEW Geo. Taylor, Consei-Tatu- whip, is guessing at the Conservative ma- jority. George proved himself poor prophet long ago and no one needs to pay attention to his derings in figures. The says: Eye-Open.-r in its last issue We are quite willing to take Mr. Douglas's word for it-also Mr Cushing's-that the deal was a legit- imate one. Most likely it was. In fact, there seems to be no doubt about it. What the Eye Op-ner was roar- ing about and will continue to roar about if the occasion demands, is the establishing of profitable com- mercial relations between the govern- ment and government official ELECTION PREDICTIONS.

Each town is presenting its lulvantagos and it looks as though the officials would have a difficult task- to select the site. George E. Foster is a Cons-rvative but in this campaign he is travelling alone. Sir Mackenzie Bow- 'H. a former Conservative premier, will not spc-ak on the same- platform with Foster n-ither'will he speak to him.
