Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 14, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta VOL. III. LETHBRIDGE, AL3ERTA. WEDNESDTY, OCTOBER '14, 1908. HON. F. OLIVER SPEAKS AT RAYMOND Dealt With Campaign Yarn Of the Con- servatives give th railway company in addition to the land grant, a loan of a year for 20 .rears and that it should take as .security for repayment, one-- third of the land company's total land j grant. The '20 year period does not j expire until ifno and until that time the Government had no right to fore- close its mortgage or demand repay- ment of the cash advanced. A feature of the agreement waff that the land should be held in the name of the Government instead of BANQUET TO AMBASSADOR the name, of the company, the corn- securing exemption Raymond, Oct. word of Hon. Frank Oliver's visit to Raymond this evening only reach >d; here on Saturday afternoon, the news spread quickly about the district and a crowd that filled the Assembly Hall, gathered to hear the public questions of trie day discussed by the able and honor, d "Minister of the Interior. Mr. Oliver was. in splendid form and made a most effective speech. -In dealing with the irrigation question and comparing the ;two candidates, The minister of the interior called on the electors to return Mr. Simmons if they wanted a representative who would look after their interests in- irrigation and other matters concern, ing the district. Mr. Magrath might not now be idemifi.d with the A. R. I. C., but it was quite safe to say that he would not oppose his friends if their interests were in danger at Ottawa. Mr. Oliver explod d the Winnipeg Telegram's presentation of the" origin of the Saskatoon and Western Land Co.'s holdings and of the reasons for the approaching sale. He said it was another attempt to manufacture evidence in support of the hopeless charges" that the Lib- eral Government had sold land for .people to .speculate in. The -article was intended to cr-ak? the belief that the land hi the hands of pres- ent hold.-M-s through some act of. the Liberal Government and that the Liberal Government was r spansible for its not having bwn subject to taxation. Thio was entirely errone- ous. The land, a? a matt-.T of fact, was a pTirt of thr- acn-d granted by "the List Governm.'ut to pay the railway companies. The man who was at the ..if the or- ganization which secured parti- cular tract, in 1S90 was none other than Mr. E. B, O.sltT, msjibt-r for Toronto., The lund was a part of grant nrnwl by the Regina, and Lung Lake railway company. A part of the agr'.'ement entered pany thereby from taxation. The Liberal Government in order that the land might b.- brought un- der taxation and become available for settlement granted the railway' ilOIi cO sen tiife iaiiu provided that they turned over to the Government a sufficient sum to wipe out the total per acre indebted- ness to the Government. The sum agreed on was per Boston, Mass., Oct. men of British birth and ancestry and Canadians and Britishers joined last night in honoring th> British ambassador to the United States, the Hon. James Bryce, at a dinner at the hotel Thomersi. The dinner was given by the Canadian Club of Bos- ton, with the co-operation of the Vic- toria Club, the British charitable so- ciety and Scottish charitable society. British, French, Scottish and Amer. jk-an flags formed an -international setting behind the British ambassa- dor as he rose amid the "applause of the gathering to offer the greeting of the British Empire.
