Ever it was created it has re- jturned a ConeervatLve to 'Ottawa- iJtTithln Us confines, wholly or in part; 'iftre eight provincial constituencies, Uiis of which are represented by Con- Iservatives. It is true that in the gen- peral election .lastly ear the party majof- iity was'grleatiy rdduced ou account of strong sentioient in rec- feprocity in tho- rural sections. All .lilmt saved the day for Staples, the Conservative nominee, was the vote jjn. tbe suburban divisions of Winnipeg fety. campaisrn which closes today jjbas been hardly fought and that Rob- liin. and. Rogers .have, not felt., certain the ipersonal attention they have been giv- Mng constituency. They bays been ispeakiug nightly and their workers Iliave been tolling night and day in all [the paths of electioneering so com- i anou to the JEanitoba machine. Lib- i'erals have been arrested and put in as a bluff to turn the scent1 from the Tory trail. It is worthy of remark that arresting Liberals is a iiabit of tbe'Roblin outfit. Since thej have been in power fifteen Liberal's have been placed under arrest at iiif- rereat times for alleged election crook- edness and in not one case bus the charge been substantiated., The Lib- eral party is up against all of the worst tactics of this corrupt oiitflj; and it will be a miracle if air. Rich- ardson wins. Apart from this Tories who are friendly to reciprocity are be- ing-implored to stiiy with the party, for if the seiit id1'lost it a disastrous 'blow Borden govern- ment and more tha-n that to the pres: tige of Hon. Robert Rogers. Then they ?.re told that there is no chance for reciprocity but the Liberals on the other hand argue that if Macdouald speaks out bravely and boldly it will waken the government up to the abso- lute -need of something being .done without delay" td'Mirovide" larger and better markets for "grown in Canada" goods as Sir Wilfrid Laurier puts it. It the farmers speak their mind as farmers today, the Liberal candidate will bo elected, but if they vote as partisans the tale will be different for' Slacdonald' politically is strictly lonservative. What the Royal Visit Will Mean "rFU-IE DUKE has come and gone. J. From a sentimental point the value of his visit has been suf- recognized. Tlie impressions the royal party have !oft will bo Inst- ng, anil u-e may here- say that many vof us will have come t.o ta'e relations ijeuveeu the Throne, as frrepresenteil br the Duke. the are ranch nearer and more in- rtiniate than T'e vrere ivont to con- peider it. Anil this is well. Tliere is, htnvt-ver, another aspect ;of the royal visit which it would be to divell upon. That is its jiconimercial v.-Uie to Lethbridge in Cue of aiivertisoment. In Uio man- fener of welcoming 'the royal represent- rative we have shown that we are no sjnere prairie town, and that "when, the occasion arises we fully understand to meet it in the recognized con- ventional This counts for some- the how to do [things as .they should >be done is, ,aftor fplV a day'.progress, wilV'help to do the t.ieputatjon which prairie cities ;have t.-amoagsfLthose not acquainted _ "'tii aid en tally the Uuko's 'visit puts a bSiggc f" i mpb rt a n c e on' five' i n g witii ail'lhat It means to If -lIr. Burns villj he more international than the name present implies. By attracting the attention of the British government in a national way, as mc-utioned by the Duke, it TV III tend to focus the attention of all other natioiiR on thJB continent, and, tonssquently, uu Can- ada, as the centre' of ihe greatest and most essential industry. The Dry-Farming Congress, in that this city is the first in. the Dominion in which it is to he held, has almost become synonymous with Leilibridge. Anything: which tends to accentuare its importance cannot therefore fail to reflect on the city. Again the address of the Overseas Club, 'which was the iirst of its kind to be presented to the Governor Gen- eral in his tour, gavo him an oppor- tunity, as he worded it, to publicly express his sympathy with the This address and reply we understand were cabled verbatim to the London Daily -Mail by its representative on the royal train, and from, it to others of the principal papers in the United Kingdom. So much for the advantage of.publicity for Lethbridge. In all these matters, while not act- uating the spirit of the welcome we tendered, there is reason for congrat- ulation in their commercial utility, it Is an aftermath, which sicned for, we should be foolish net to estimate the-importance. if the oulj hiy'eil ii eoupll1 of lonscr Hoi i.'ii would lisvp enough l.UJcnils bo- Itiml bai-s lo i-lnch (lit- rosult Tor his iwvty. tho I'Yctirii volo .shout dio Ccniservatho workers v tMiicdoiinld i'ml very cry convoys (in Impression of moihoils by which it is hoped to win the election.
