Frank Olivvr at Medicine Hat) "I plmd for honest politics. Are you going to support a party, guilty ol dishonesty in representing as a scandal a project which was. entered into in the ordinai-y course of liusi-uesa and was certainly intcndtoU to S�G&re developnient of the country in your immediate vicinity. I observe that the Conservative candid'ato says he will Support the Bobbins Irrigation proposittoh. The people of Medicine Hat do not need to thnnl; him for that promise. His support is no good to them. His party, if they come to power are pledged to what they ore pleased to call restitution of the public domain. They are pledged to destroy the Bobbins Irrigation Echcnic, not in general terms, but by name and statement, and yet the gentleman, who comos before you as a candidate has, may I say, the audacity to expect j-our support, as a means of putting tJiat party in power." TAXATION REDUCED In 1896 under the Conaervativo tar. Iff, $18.88 was the average amount paid upon every llOO worth ol^foods impoft.d into the cotinllry. U.ndcr the Liberals, the oycmge rates per aiinum have been as fol. lows ; 1897 ............ ... 1898 ............ ... 1899 ............ 1900............ ... 1901...... ......... 1902............... 1903.............. 1904.............. 1905 .............. 1906.............. 1907.............. If, since the Liberals have been in power, the Conser%'ativ>^ average rate of taxation in 1896 Imd been levied upon oil the imports, nearly fifty million dollars would have been col lected. That is the fair measure ol the reduction ol taxation brought about by the Liberals. 117.87 16.95 16.70 15.98 16.06 16.09 15.87 16.28 16.04 16.73 , 15.66 THE VOTES OF THE WORKING MEN It has often been urged as a ru' preach against workmen that they they ore easily dcludc~. Wo�d St. V,'. C. Simmons made a splendid representative nt Edmonton and you can count upon it that ho will moke just OS good at Ottawa. Sco that ho is elected and you will never regret it. (.\t Berlin, Sept. 24.) "You have heard the Conservative leaders say that I, when introducing the question to the House of Coni. mons, misled tho House; that 1 stat. ed that st would cost 113,000,000. whereas it is going to cost some $20,. 000.000. Sir, that is very small poli. tics, it is very smal potatoes indeed. What I stated was this: That we w.rc going to build tho railway from Win. nipeg to Moncton, but lease it to the Grand Trunk Pacific Company, which was to J5ay interest upon it, except for seven years. Well. sir. if we build thr railway and borrow the money to do so at 3 per cnt. interest, that will be covered by the payment of interest we receive from the Grand Trunk Pacific ' under the lease. If a road coat one million or two rtiillion. the inter st you pay out with one hand yon put into your pocket with the other. If we had made the condition that the cOnipany should commence payment as soon as the road was completed, not a dollar would you have to pay, but for sevon years the inter st is to bo borne by the Canadian people, and altor seven years it will, bo borne by the G. T. P. I estimated thitt tlu- cost to us for seven years'of interest would be $13,000,000. Perhaps in this I have been too gen. i-rous. I didn't Expect that the times would be so good as tliey have been .since. . I did not e.xpect that the cost of labor would increase 25 per 'i^nt and materials 35 p t cent, or more. ^ Snden Years' Eiperiwce Practical Mai Bif Your Slwes at F.

If he is elected and Borden is returned to power, ho will want U Cabinet position. If he doesn't get it, then there will be trouble. R. L. Richardson is about the onlj- admirer R. L. Richardson hus. J. T. Uawkes, ol Balgonie, .Sosk., a former Con.servative member of the Northwest I.x>gislature is suiiporting tho Liberals this time because he believes the Hudson's Bay roilway is in the best interests of Western Canada. Lots of Conservatives will cast tliuir votes for the Liberal candidates for tho .same reason. ALDERMAN AND POLITICIAN W. C. Ives has apparently failed to realize that in this city the pooplo consider him scparntoly as oldorman and as politician.

The Germans are said to be making a new kind of bread of wheat or rye, for which the grain goes through a process similar to malting. It is said to have a delicate flavor, and by reason of the process more easily digested. The same is true of beer, which is sometimes called liquid bread. The brewing of The Lethbridge Brewing and Malting Company's "Alberta's Pride'" converts the barley into a delicious food drink that besides containing a high percentage of nourishment, is an aid to digestion eod-O istry iind for five years discharged the duties of that profession.

Gurney- Oxford Chancellor will give you the best cooking satisfaction out of either coal or wood. It is built of dead flat, patent levelled steel, closely rivetted to sheets of asbestos millboard -a construction which insulates the heat of the range and renders impossible a stoppage of the draft by leaking into the (lues.
