Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 8, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta an My. by HtnU. but MtA old A CONSERVATIVE SCANDAL One of the scandals ol, the vative party. in the present is of the Saskatchewan Valley Lajid Company. Mr. Bcrden, MX, Ames and others of the Conserva- tive leaders, Lad the people apart from those at Saskatoon, where a word was uttered by ifr. Borden in condemnation of this trans- action on his visit there, that the Liberal Government's action on this matter, was a crinu against the citi- zens of Canada. 'What are'the facts? Tim was a sale of acres of even numbered sections in a tract of which the odd numbered sections for -years had formed part 'of a land grant given by the Conservative Governajpnt to .the Qu'Appelle and Long Lake Rail- way Mr. B. Osier, Conservative M. P., for Toronto, was largely interested' in this company. He is a 'shrewd man, well versed in western land values, and he absolu- tely refused to accept'the land as a bonus because it was not fit for-set- tlement. ot 'the ol semi-itid lands which tftUsd by Uw ScskatcUewao Company, no mort jtutiftcttkm lor uaing naiue in con. oectkm with the Saskatchewan Land Co., than theW 'would be in using that of E. B. Osier, M.P., in connec- tion with jUuids and money the Cana- dian Pacific acquired from the Con- servative Government. The statement that the government sold these lands at a prici fat below their value, and regarded as desirable by the settler disposed of by the fact that the settler paae.d them over, and Mr. Osier's Company refused to accept them from the Government as a bon- us; If it wtis wrong for the Saskatche- wan Valley Land Co. to acquire these lauds-at acre, with settlement conditions attached, was it wrong for Mr. Osier's Company 10 demand lands than, these, without ?tt- tlement conditions attached, free of all cost? this THE LEMIEUX ACT The Calgary Herald statement: "Sot only does the Lemiuex Act fail to prevent strikes, _but it was condemned in unmeasured t ;rms at Labor congress "by F.

And the no "doubt, exr pects the public to take it serious- ly." As the'Herald very well knows, the Lemieux Act has settled all the strik- s it was summoned to arbitrate, with the exception of a couple. Jt was His partner, A. M. Nanton, one of first called into service at Lethbridge the most competent real estate nun and was the means of settling the in Winnipeg, and at present maaag- protracted struggle between the A. 1. A I. Co. and its men. It may be true that the act is not Djrfect but it is superior to any la- legislation of any country in the world. It has settled 75 per cent, and more of the strikea in Canada; it "is a distinct credit to'the Liberal'Gov- ernment. Some laoor leaders con- demn the act, Mr. Bhermau. amongst ;h nvbut was there ever a law that suited every person? At the recent Trades Labor Con- jresa in Halifax very strong .com- mendation of the Act was 'offered by some of foremost labor men. Sec- retary Draper said that the Act had been tried and found all right and the only fault that had so farr been found was with the working of the Act the "boards appointed and he never would agree to have it abolished. Allan Studi.olnie, Labor M.P.P., Hamilton, said the Act was good, had proved good and the Congress would be doing wrong if they did not stand by it. Alphonse Verville, .M. P., presi- dent Congress..said he ing director of the Alberta Kailway Co., likewise demned the land as unfit for settle- ment, and thjse gentlemen entered a suit La the Exchequer Court to com- pel tne Government to give them land that was fit for settlement. They even offered, to. take an acre in HJU of this'land; The beat evidence of the character of the land is that the Qu'Appelle and Long Lake Railway had traversed, this rand since 1890. Tahere was not a railway station for sixty-five'miles. The land had been adversely reported, on by the railway people, Govern- ment officials and private valuators. Intending- settlers shunned it as they would a pestilence, and up to a 1? years ago it .was an -uninhabited, ne- glected desolation. So .much_for the character of the land. n happened that A, D. Davidson, Duluth, Minnesota; 'G. ,F. Piper, A. L. "Warner, -who is weU known in the .Lethbridge district; George G. Howe, and D. it Macdonald had purchased larg. areas of semi-arid land, being ".portion of the Northern Pacific lane grant, and had succeeded in selling the same to settlers accustomed to farm that kind of land. These gen- tlemen had a complete organization in the for the sale of .land They had already established over 3, 000 agencies in the United States and were in a good position to place on the market land oi this semi-arid nature. A. J. Adamson, who then a member of Parliament, interested these gentlemen in the scheme to buy the land grant of the Qu'AppelL Company, land which that company had refused to accept as a gifi from the Government. They bought land for an acre, without any settlement conditions attached, and after long negotiations purchasec from the Dominion Government the even numbered sections running with this land to the extent of acres, for an acre, and very on erous settlement conditions. The facts therefore are that Mr Adamson was not a member of Par liament when he interested himsel in this enterprise as alleged by Con servative scandal speakers. He i eighteen years the Conservatives wer.> in power amounted to 000. The figures tor twelve years of Liberal rule are Isn't that sufficient proof that the Liberal Government is good enough for Can- Rev.

Ontario went two months without rain and the entire country was burn- ed over. They will soon need to put in irrigation down there. In the last year of the Conserva- tive Government, only home- ner. ._. r In opening early family life -was shown to be .thi normal social unit and the determining national unit. The consummation of the ambitions of young 'people looks to the estab- lishment of. a home. The home life is the ideal life. Its establishment is not an option, but a r.sponsibility not to be ignored. He who chooses yhe a bachelor makes his life incomplete, and becomes a skulk- er on life's battlefield. In a sensi he is criminally recreant. No man Kas a right to regard himself aa one of lif-'s terminal points. However, circumstances often make home life impossible to all: Many lonely lives are monuments of beauty, but they are a tragedy as well. The making of a home is a divine event. Its influence is eternal. The history of. those who become gr.-at is the history of great and great mothers. A great man is often a spark out of his mother's genius. If homes were what they ought to be one-half of the institutions for in- dividual and social bett.-rment would he done away with. Contributions to the making of a home come from within and from without. Our homes are what me make them, and are a potential Heaven. Trne homes come from intelligence.
