Maunsell. the Liberal candidate in' the Mac- leod bye-election, is feeling -better about-his prospects today than he did yesterday for the very good reason that the meeting, the first in the campaign, 'held last night stimulated' his and convinced Con- servatives., and-others who-were in: dined -to be sympathetic with the .candidature of Robt. Patterson, that Macleod would serve its., best inter- .Bests' a supporter of'-the Bifton government. Premier Sifton was on hand and got a rousing reception from the 'huge crowd that packed -the town ball. He was suffering from a slight cold .-but. made a most effective Bpeech that stamped him as a shrew-fi discreet statesman, not appealing to the people for ..the sake of votes, for the party, but what'he considered, the best interests sof the province.' Ha told the- audience that he had -been In the west for' thirty-five years, and some of the old timers in the audi- ence, who had always presumed they were the first to .cross the Red River, became anxious about their laurels in lhat respect.- The however, was not comparing records as to Settlement; in the1 west, but. meh- length of his residence west' oT the ..Red River to impress the audience that he knew touch about the country 'find'-its needs.

R..'s' intentions is that it desires an. .air line route for coal from the Crow's Nest, and domestic coal from the Lethbridge districts in- to Northern Saskatchewan. There is a vast consumption of coal- ia 'that territory, and at present it either has to be taken monton, 'and, then east over, either the Grand Trunk or Canadian or east along the main line .to Re- gina and then north. A line running directly -north-east from Lethbrid-ge to Saskatoon would naturally, draw the bulk of the coal traffic for North- ern Saskatchewan, will tap bet-ween here and there a vast territory rapid- ly- settling up and at present yitli no. o'ther roads planned to cross it. .-In, addition, with the completion-of the TRADE ONGRESS CLOSED Port Twentv- 1 sixth 'Annualvconvention o.f and Labor Congress was closed this noon af ter a ioorning session at which the principal" subject "of discussion was the appointment of permanent organ- izers." .The.mat'ter was. referred to the executive.

Mr. Sims 'had asked the premier if Macleod would fairly dealt with if Mr. Patterson iwas returned. The premier said without hesitation that the consti- luency would -get ,a fair deal tout that the government would rather deal with a friend than on enemy. That was 'human nature. Only two classes of men sit in .tibe legislature, sup- porters and opponents. Mr. Patterson would consider as an opponent if elected end and Mr. Maunsell a friend s.upporter. Yet Mr. Maun- sell, if elected as a Liberal, was not compelled to swallow everything tha government proposed. He had perfect right to use his own judgment .This led him to a consideration the Alberta Great Waterways Rail- iway matter. He had na policy to an- nounce an-d didn't intend to announce any policy until the legislature met and the report of the commission was presented in tine constitutional way. He was prepared to say that if the policy he might then announce did not suit Mr. Maunsell or any other Liberal members, they bad every light vote against him and if he was defeated he would retire to pri- vate life. However, certain newspa- pers and certain public men were not going to compel him to divulge his policy until he mot the legislature in November. That was -the time and there was the place to announce his position to the men elected to represent the people of this province. The declaration suited the crowd and Jie was vigorously applauded. "Equal Rights to AM Allusion to Mr. Paterson's posing as a farmer's candidate led the pre- mier to say that tihe government was for all the .people. Equal rights 'be given all classes and. th@ farmers had no need to worry when they had every member of the gov- ernment sitting for rural constituen- cies. In conclusion Premier appeal ed to the electors to support Mr. Maunsell. That was the only way to express confidence in the govern- ment. on Page Ten.) were married decided to visit it The mule on which my wife was rid- ing was stung 'by a hornet and plung-. ed over a precipice. carrying my wife with him.
