Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 15, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta LCTUBfUDOC, ALtCRTA, THURSDAY; OCTOBER IK, im THRU OF CANADA lest M 4MM Pnib Fanners' Sarvtept AeeOOatS play an im- portant part in the busi- ness of this Bank, and every Depositor, is given prompt, courteous attention, whether his account be large or small.

R. of Parliament amongst thy exiniva- foi1 which electors are ex- horted tofturn the Government out of in respect of which Mr. Ives, 1 have H'j. doubt, asks you to condemn the vote of a cash suhsidy of n mile for a.line from Cardstoa to MacleoU. (LoucJ chei-rs.) It is not a vote to any spe- cific railway company, it is merely a vote for a line of railway .between these two places, "and the Great Nor- thern will be just as able under a Liberal administration to secure the bonus as any other company. Re- newed applause.) 'We cannot, it is true go across the International boundary and compel the Great Nor- thern to run branches into this coun- try, but we can give Liberal induce- ments of .which the Great Northern can avail itself if it wishes. We have gone thus far, in the 'interest of competition, and still you are asked to weep because the Liberal Govern- ment is'not favorably to'competition in this part of Alberta. How. much railway competition I ask, may you expect if Mr. Magrath is elected and if his friends obtain power. In 1905, the Great Northern tried to get a charter to build into southeastern British Columbia, and every Conser- vative member of the railway com- mittee was on hand to vote against the company being allowed to cross the boundary.' Conscrvativ member from the West-stood up on that occasion like a little man and voted for the principles of his party (Applause.) 1 assume., that' if Mr. Magrath be elected as a Conservative he will have to follow his party, and the actions of his party from 1831 un- til the present time has been in fav- or of railway monopoly in Western Canada, (hear; .hear.) --r Giving Back the Land Mr. Ives eloquently demanded that I should give you back your land. The Liberal Government has been giving back The land to the people of the West at the rate of two and a half million acn-s in. the last thirty days. (Cheers.) We are giving back the lands just as fast- the people are willing to take the'm and use them. The record of .nearly'two "and a half million acres will compare very favorably with our opponents record. We, in the thirty days, mentioned, g.ive back to the people, just as nluch as they in the last four years of their administration. Disposal of Coal Lands My friend, Mr. Ames, or rather Mr. Iv.s, well it does not matter which, because his is the same speech, that bell boys and chamber maids had Applied'for coal mines from de- partment of the Interior and you are iisked to believe that it is a scan- dal for a ball boy or a chambermaid to apply for an urea of coal lands. Let us understand this matter from the oftcers, as officers of the company." The Squart In Ltthbridfe As my friend is anxious for i will give it. In Lethbridge which carries a considerable proportion of the vote of this constituency, there is a certain ar.'u of laud which is known as the Public Square, which everybody in Lethbridge until recent date sup- posed to be the property of the City. Irately it appi-ars it has turned out t'o be the properly of the Railway Irrigation company, and all of a sudden the company became possess- ed of the idea that it was desirable tliat the square should be handed ovur to Lcthbridge to become part of the property of the town. To use phrase of my friend. Mr. Ames., it was only a coincidence that the company should have arrived at this decision pn the eve of an election one of the candidates was a gentleman who imd been connected with the company during a long time. It was a coincidence and my friends of the other side will excuse me for 'thinking that it wa not an accidental coincidence by any moans. (Laugh- ter. -.A question of title was not a coincidence."

IT IS PURE! the start. The coal lauds were offer- ed for sale to whoever might apply for them at ten dollars an acre sub- ject to a royalty. of ten cents on every ton mined. The first applicant was to get the claim. I ask you, la- lifes and gentlemen, whether, provid- ed the money was forthcoming, the lepartment had any business to en- whether the applicant was a Ram LUY Tea is Sold only in Lethbridge by THE BENTLEY CO. LTD. bell boy or any body else. The ques- tion was, had he the ten dollars for ?ach acre of land required. If the ap. pliant had that ten dollars, he or ?he, as the case may be, had a right to demand the land; and may I let you into the- secret of success of the Liberal administration, the first ap- plicant got- the land every time. In the happy days of the Coservative aovernment, whoever applied for my thing, had to have his political faith vouched for. The Liberal Gov- ernment's administration has been -m absolute success because it has giving 'a square deal. First first served, the man and the .nouey, and no question asked. (Loud Mr. Oliver explained Ahe Govern- ment's relations 'with the Alberta Irrigation Company, which of late- have not been amicable-. He said that the Government allowed them to )unch. their land .grant so that it 2ould be served by'irrigation scheme, ind when this had been carried the Government allowed them to ac- luire for development a tract of half i million" acres cast of their holding. 'Next said "want- id a millidu acres lying immediately ;-ast-7 and they wanted .it without ir- rigation conditions. They wished to icquire a million acres at a dol- lar an acre, on the condition of ruh- vtng the waste waiter from their ditch ilowri the two coulees which run this land. -We were not able .0 see, however, such merit in the project as would warrant us in agree- ing" to it, and the irrigation company .3 .out in this constituency against .lie Government Avith all its money, Influence and friends. A it." Mr. do not think we loecl any proof, we have the proof sround us' every day." Further that :he company as a company is doing ture, is a coincidence that is of cial note." The same commit- tee has had that in hand and their report is unbiased." "I am stating what everyone knows to be a fact, and I am stating the inference I draw from that fact. I may, of course, be wrong in my in- ference, but 'I was asked for my reasons, and I have given one of them. "The contest in which you are en. gaged is of vital importance to you, .md I hope that you will consider as to whore you stand in respect to the two candidates. Mr. Magrath's Attitude The Government is the arbiter be- tween the buyer and the seller in connection with the water which is used in thi neighborhood, and your representative may have at some time to give the Government advice in respect of the two conflicting in- terests. Mr. Magrath has been in. associated with the Ivyi- gation company, and what Mr. Ma- grath has today, he owes to that com- pany, a_s that company also owes a great deal ,to him. If Mr. Magrath is the man that his friends say lie he is the rnan to stand by his whose behalf is he likelj to advise the Government in regarc to any matter that may he in dispute bstween the people and the Irrigatior company with regard to water? (Ap -plause.) That is a matter of vita importance, and the people should understand where they are.

I have nothing to say against the Irrigation company. We have done everything that we could in reason to advance their in- terests. But as between the company seller, and the people as the buyer, there is a conflict of- interest, and your representative cannot be on-both sides at once. He may vote Liberal today and Conservative to- morrow. I think he has suggested that there was a possibility of his doing so, but he cannot represent your interest today as the buyer of water, and the interest of the Irri- gation company tomorrow as the sel- ler. I warn you to protect your inter- ests, by the means which the consti- ution of "Canada has given to you. If you do not protect them, you will lave yourselves to blame. I am sorry that Mr. Magrath has seen fit to associate himself with such a campaign as being put up on behalf of the Conservative party. I i satisfied that in his heart of icarts, he is ashamed of and regrots that he has not something better to offer.
