TORIES ARE NOT VERY HOPEFUL Chief Organ Of Party Only Small Majority Ottawa, Oct. eve of elec lion the predictions of the Con- made early in toe the were to be stampeded by wholesale charges of graft and the Conservative party swept into power by an indignant el- ectorate is discounted by -reports re- ceived ut the capital today from ev- ery province of the Dominion. There has absolutely no stampeding but complete unanimity .exists and the Liberal party was never more un- ited for victory. The Toronto News, which is now the authorized chief Conservative or- yesterday came down from its previous high forecasts of a Borden majority and after figuring out all possible gains, managed to reach the admittedly uncertain conclusion that the Conservative majority would be fifteen. That was based on the as Humption that 61 Conservatives would be elected in Ontario to 25 Liberals, 30 Conservatives in Quebec M THE MAN FOR BRIDGE LETH- The Liberal Government at Ottawa will be returned to power. Even Conservative papers admit thai. Would it not bi> better for Leth bridge to have a support- er of that Government at Ot- tawa? Mr. Sunmoni a member of the Liberal party would be able to imprest'upon the Government the needs of this district just as he has done as a member oPthe local Legislature. Lethbridge U growing and we want a man at Ottawa who will keep our interests and demands continually before the Government. Every true Lethbridge ten should vote for W. C. Simmons.

John Robinson, of the barge Cnttery triec to save his dog, which felJ overboard municated to Supt. Price, of the C. P. R., in Calgary. He went down to Claresholm, and had an interview with the president of the Board of Trade, after which a meeting of that body was called, and a resolution glossing over the whole situation was passed. This, however, did not suffice, and more trouble was raised by the indignant agriculturalists. The! result was, C. S. Hotchkiss, of Clares holm, was appointed by the govern- ment to seo that the provisions of thc grain act arc not contravened. He is said to have demanded the car register, and struck the fake regis- trations from it. thcsfl beinir, replac- ed by thc names of farmers who real- ly needed the cars. The situation, however, is not being relieved, for the simple reason that the C.P.R. cannot at present supply the cars to handle the grain. They find it im- possible.

Bennett, the mem- ber who was promoting the repeal and Mr. Magrath, who was lobbying- for it. Dr. DeVeber's speech is on re- cord in the official reports of the As- sembly and a part of that speech reads as follows: Another objection put forward was that the eight hours, a day practically existed now. Well, if that be so, if the men and. em- ployers were both willing to have it so by custom, why not have it so by law? He thought the whole gist of the matter was the belief that the eight hours would increase the' cost of production. He hafc no doubt that the gentleman horn ethbridge who had been canvas- sing the members, said so. This was a pretty cold country, and a. rise in the price of coal would be a serious matter. Well, he had had a talk with the manager of the coal mine and he said it would make very little difference. It would make a difference of only ten cents a ton. Now, there were very fi w persons who would burn more than twelve tons in a year. How many of them for the sake of SI.20 a year would try and make these unfortunate, miners worfc two or three hours more a day than thry wanted to? Another thing was that it was admitted the prin- ciple was right, but. it was said it premature because country was not ready. He maintained that the country was ready. He asked the House to consider the question very carefully. There were, as he had said, two side to tho question: capita] and labor. Capital had. enough friends because it conM iheitT, but rabur harr TO to their smypathy.
