The World of tabor Topics tf btoest tt Cbnts britd UUr ik is reipmiUe fertk Vim eipressd tte ThiB being my Itst opportunitir be- fore the elections, 1 am offering a few to the large number of workingmen. in this constituency a? to how their ballot should be markci -on Monday, and in doing so I know 1 shall be treading on the toes ol a few of my readers, but as "facts are which winna no apology IB offered. It hast always been a problem too for me to solve, why a working- man should uphold the Conservative policy, aa'that party has always, and will until the millenium, stand' for -capitalism pure tind simple. There- fore it naturally follows that the la- "boring classes will secure no benefi- cial legislation from that party.. To come down to the election so far .as it concerns us locally, let us take an unbiassed view of the two candi- dates, .what they have done for the Although he accepted "the nomination of the Conservative party after con siderable persuasion, it was only on the understanding that he ran as an uow appears and introduces the lobby act in the repeal of a law whichx af- fect the health of hundred of miners. He was not a member al this time, but he was such a great and honest supporter of labor that he thought it was to the'interest of the miners he should do all in his power to take away from them the eight-hour day, and was, unfortunately, successful. Now, what do you think of that? Nor is this ail. The miners' strike n this city is "well, within the mem- ory of all. How doefi he stand in connection with this? The A. R. with which he was connected, fought the organisation of, a union in its mines. If Mr. Magrath is the influential man his friends claim him to be, and also a friend of labor, sure ly he would have been able to con- vince his fellow officials of the mer- its of org'anited labor. But nothing heard of any action he took in the interests of the workers at this time and I am confident nothing ever will be.. As to the future there can be no doubt. The only man to vote for m this riding the man who has proved that the laboring classes will receive some cinsideration at his hands, and that man is not C A. Ma- grath.

Are YOU one yet? 'Independent." While that is so, it is rather surprising to notice that this prefix has been either dropped or ignored in the literature sent out by the, party he represents in. this city. Personally, I have no use politically for a man who sits on the fence, and whether he is elected or not I have no hesitation in saying that no man can .serve half a dozen masters. Again, whoever is elected, will do well to bear in mind he goes to Ottawa he represents the whole of the constituency, -tega-rcllese of poli- tics, and it be his duty to see that we get a fair shake when the legislative machinery begins to re- volve, Thus you will see that who- ever represents you, whether he be Independent Conservative, Tory, Grit, Independent Liberal, Socialist, or laboring classes in the past, and form Labor candidate, it is his duty to re- some idea of what they are likely to in the future. What' is the record of the Liberal 'candidate in the Alberta Assembly, iind what has he done to assist the -cause of labor? In the breast of -every right-thinking and honest la- man there can only be one .answer. That is, that he has done -everything within his .power to fur- ther that cause. Take the last two Acts placed on the provincial statute books, viz.: the Workmen's .Compen- Act and the Eight-hour Bank to Bank law. regulating the working hours of miners. These two. Acts-had no firmer or support- er than Mr. Simmons: .Again, when question affecting the interests -of the laboring classes'cropped'lip, he always ready to give the matter "his earnest and undivided attention.

Well, what has the "Independent" Conservative done for labor? Abso- lutely nothing. And what is more he offers nothing, neither can he point out one single act that the party he represents (or the party who is run- ning him) has done for labor. Seeing that he has failed to accomplish any- thing in the interests of the laboring classes, I will'endeavor to show what he" has done to prevent legislation in favor of the workers. _ One of the first things he did as a member of the Territorial Legislature at Regina was to vote for .a bill to reduce the garnishee exemptions from to What his object was in this is easily seen. Instead of the poor man being reduced in his hour of trial to Mr. Magrath must need vote to allow the capitalist to take another off him, and the surprise to me is he did not go the whole limit, and leave him in such a position that the police might nab him as a vagrant. Will any sensible workingman vote for a candidate who stands for that? that is only the first act! He I had a conversation this week -with one of the before mentioned work- ingmen Conservatives, and he cer- tainly opened my eyee. If I am to believe him, the length the party 'is assuredly out of the realms of fair and honest fighting. After assuring me that they were going to win he said, referring to Mr. Simmons, "We "are goit% to'send him back to teach school." I have a better opinion of his party that, and confi- dent that this statement did not em- anate from the committee rooms. is, to say the least, worthy of com- ment.
