Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 14, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE WEEKLY HERALD LAUKIERWILL WIN EASILY IN QUEBEC Heaters Heaters Heaters Predicted That His Majority Will be Larger Than Ever Quebec, Oct. careful survey of I the political situation in the province, j based on personal investigation and on conversations with men active in the'contest, leads to" the belief that the Opposition forces are making no headway whatever against the Gov- ernment in the present campaign. In the.'last'House Sir Wilfrid Laurier i could rely on the support of 54 out of j French-speaking, from the Province j of Quebec. No question. policy] has arisen to albnate the Govern-i meats' Quebec support, and Sir! Wilfrid is, if anything, more the idolj of .his own people than he has beenj at any previous period in his long; and eventful public career. B.ts arej being made by Liberals that the Gov.

The Governmont has endeavored to keep other than agricultural ini- migrants out of the country, and in suite of the protests of the Manufac- turers have continued to advertise warning mechanics not to come to Canada. Fair Clause Another thing for which the Gov- eminent should be commended is the j fair wage clause that is insterted in all Government contracts. And ifj the contractor does not pay the pre- vailing fair wage scale, the Govern- ment will keep back the difference and give it to the men. The Govern- ment has also abolished sweat shops in connection with the making of militia, postal, customs and other uniforms. For all these reforms che Government should receive fair play at the hands of the working man for they have shown a sincere i desire to legislate for his benefit.
