Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 15, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta .V btt THE CANVAM AT GRASSY The of the Hou'. Frank Ol- iver at Carttatoii oh Tuesday night is decidedly in the light of the put; UD, by Mr. grath to the at Grassy during, his the dis- trict. Mr: Oliver says that 'the Al- iberta Railwdy and Irrigation, Co. while Mr. Magrath was land couauiia- siooer made t request of the govern- ment for a grant of a million jicres of land to be chosen east of their pro sent tract. They, offered to pay a dollar ail acre anda instead of the us- ual irrigation duties required, offered to turn the waste water of their sys- tem down two coulees that ran through the ilesirai area. It is need- less tn say that Frank Oliver would not be a parly to any such proposi- tion as that. Mr. Magrath's reported canvass of the people of Grassy Lake went some thing like this: "All you people in this district want is water and you could have-lots of it if the waste water from the irrigation" system .were turned down those two coulees. This would provide water for- your stock and green, pasture on the- sides of the coulees, and the seepage of the wa ter would make it easier for you to gftt water in your wells. If you elect me I will do my best to secure this water for you in this way."

The of thia estate not toad of then member of the Lcgisla- tho Territor- ture for Lethbridge In ial Legislature at Regiua. That was the only interest Mr. Magrath ever displayed in labor legislation and if the workingmen consider It worthy of eiidorsation, then by all means they ishoitld vote and work for Mr. Magrath. Mr, SinunoQs, whileTelected to tho Legislature at Edmonton as a. Liber- al, has been as earnest and energetic in his advocacy and support; of labor legislation as any labor inember could have been. He was ono of .tho men. the eight hour law for miners and the Workmen's Compensation Act. An eight hour day for the milters of Alberta is now compulsory and if tho miners are grateful for that measure they' can show their gratitude by voting for Mr. Simmons. Mr. Ma- grath, as we pointed! out before, op- posed with aU his power, the eight hour law legislation passed at Ke- giga and' succeeded in- having it re- moved from the statute books. ilr. Simmons was the man who first proposed a Workmen's Compen- 4t on Act in Alberta. When the uica sure was introduced he fought fon it He was apparently a iuaa who could he have seen Coubert communinc with his beloved would called the painter mad. This neighbor was a man aho in- tent on securing the full measure of his legal rights, and one day when Mr.. Armour went out to view his trees he found' the neighbor had cut off each branch of the chestnuts that oyerhUiig his property, leaving an ugly line parallel with the .separating fence. The ..Chief Justice revealed nothing of his chagrin or annoyance to the depredator, did not upbraid him, nor employ his know lodge of law- to make him pay for his work, so that the neighbor began to think he had "done exactly right, and that the le- gal next door fully aoquieaed .with his own view as to how a man might act in his rights imd privileges. Some weeks after the neighbor went to town and purchased a aew buggy, and one "day after having been out in the trap, he k4t it reposing in his own lane. Leaving his house for a visit to the the Chief Justice saw something that startled 'him, to wit, that, the shafts of thet buggy ex- tended several feet through- the fta into his own grounds. It was the work of a few seconds for Mr. Armour to secure a .sharp saw, and aiier-7i very careful -measurement, to mark the exact line on the shafts be-, yond which they protruded into his grounds. Then the saw got busy.
