Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 7, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta Black Watch Mad MM The Chewing Tobacco ofQyafty- tan. A FINANCIER'S VIEWPOINT (Toronto Globe.) An eminent financier of Toronto, one who has never he-silaUu to .stand. with any cause that he esteemed right, has called my attention to one more potent reason why Ontario should 'now, at last ignore her bigots of race and creed, and give Sir Wil- frid that emphatic approval which has been a principal ambition of his whole useful, patient, honorable life. Canada, the financier observes, is ex- panding and growing rich on capital mainly borrowed from Great Britain, i Between January and August of this year no less than had thus been supplied to the govern- ments, railways, municipalities and sundry financial institutions in the Dominion. It is necessary to contin- uance of the country's marvellous progress that Laurier and his much- trusted Finance Minister, Mr. Field- ing, should not be "thrown down." Who -would replace them? That pleas- ant tyro, Mr. E. L. Borden, and thatj astonishing man, Mr. G. E. Foster, NEWS FROM i ALBERTA'S CAPITAL Paragraphs of Interest Gathered In Ed- monton Edmonton, Sept. With the ex- pectation of seeing trains running into Edmonton on the Grand Trunk BIG U. S. PAPER THINKS LAURIER WILL WIN whose infidelity to the most sacred fiduciary relations has been rebuked vehemently over and over again by such staunch Conservative journals ss the Toronto News and The Mont- real Star. Ontario, says the impartial finan- cier, my informant, simply cannot afford to take the risk-of drying up the stream of British capital, or so damming it that it would flow in only at the price of much-increased inter- est rates. That seems to me good sense. On it he mainly bases a -pre- diction that sane and canny Ontario Is.about to bestow on the Federal Op- positionists the surprise of their liv- es by giving Laurier than ever before. Of course, at this stage of the campaign the soothsay- ers are prophesying vigorously against one another. I will not join them, but simply say that the opin- ion- of that financier would be mine if I were venturing to declare one. (From the New York Sun.) The official announcement from Ot- tawa on Thursday that the Canadian Cabinet has decided that the Domin- ion general elections shall be held (Sir Wilfrid Laurier at North Bay.) "The Liberals are not afraid to meet to solve them whenever they occur. In the last twelve years we have had difficulties more than nnce to solve, and we have solved them to the sat- isfaction of everyone. I do not pre- tend that I am infalible. Far from it; alas! L know it loo well that I am only a miserable sinner. (Laughter.) If I did not know it the Conserva- tive papers which I read every day not keep me in ignorance. (Laughter.) It has been my fate and on October 26 had partially dis- counted by the unofficial intimation a few week? ago that Parliament would be dissolved and a general ap- peal made to the people. Canadians, therefore, will have practically a di- rect campaign of a little more than a month, as contrasted with the Am- erican campaign, which got under way in August, after the official noti- fications to all -the candidates, and will continue November 3. In Canada with the general elec- tions only five ahead there is as yet scare'ly a ripple of excite- ment. This situation arises from the fact that the Conservatives have so far failed to raise any commanding is- sue which stirs the people. The Lib- erals, on the other hand, have a sub- stantial majority in Parliament and Sir Wilfrid Laurier goes to the coun- try on the general policy of complet-j ing the great works which have had their inception under Liberal rule, during the last twelve years, and more particularly the pushing to com- pletion of the new transcontinental railway. An added impetus vrill be given to the Liberal onset by the announcement that next Monday the Grand Trunk Pacific will open up passenger service over 666 miles oi newly laid track from Winnipeg to Wainwright in Alberta. On the Conservative side, Mr. Bor- d.-n, Mr. Foster and Mr. Ames, who chiefly represent the Opposition, seem to be making the issue of higher du- ties their principal constructive plank, together with an attack on the increasing expenditures of the Gav- that it does not take into account interest was taken here in the visit this week of Charles M.

Mr. Olive? in his Wianieg speech dealt very tersely and con- clusively with Mr. Ames' insinuations i of irregularities in the awarding of timber berths which were based chiefly on deductions from the hand- writing of tenders on the files of the Department.

The first French-Canadian to achieve the Premiership he has succeeded in impressing his personality upon his Administration to a degree scarcely equalled, certainly not_ surpass: d, even by Sir John Macdonald in his prime. He has also certain admirable Qualities which eminently fit him for Canadian leadership in the days of unexampled development of the Do- minion. His schemes, such as the new Transcontinental Railway, the Hudson Bay Railway, the develop- ment of the Canadian waterways, the All Red line and British preferential trade, have touched the imagination of his countrymen and filled Can- adians with optimism as to the splen- did future Canada is entering upon. Erect, lithe and vigorous, despite his sixty-seven years, he is still buoyant and hopeful and with abundant con- fidence in the final realization of his dreams of Canada's future. war. On this hypothesis they are taking steps to procure, if possible, a further amendment of the Land Act to provide for the extension to them of the same benefits conferred on the war veterans.
