Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 20, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20. 1918 THE LETIIBRIDGE "DAIi-Y HERALD Political Evils Must Be Reiriedied-Mrs. McljLinney Albtlrta Woman M.P.FV. Speaks on the Prevalent .BvilB of Political Life Mrs. McKlnjiay, M.P.P., was greet-�d with enthuBlasm last evenlne ta her atlrrln^ address last night under thB BU81>lCBB of tho W.C.T.U." Mrs. rW. L. I-Iamllton was in the chair and Introduced thd speaker after a terw remarks regarding tho work done by the W.C.T.TJ. in educational work and child weHara. Mrs. McKKfnney, who is proylnciM president o� the W.C.T.U., explaltied SpAt the W.C.T.U. had from Its ear-"Itvst history balleyod In equal fran-chKie and since the llciuor trattic had gone- Into politics the W.C.T.U. had Kone Into polltioB to moot It. Mrs. MoKlnney explains politics RB {V sclecice of government which man-ag�8 and vwntrolB the affairs of a nation, hoth vlomestlc and foreign. The old argunseat that womon would lose thair femininity and that the field of polUtca was toi'J unclean ha.i gone. If ihe husband!) and brothers must he - thore, the woman must go to see what ajTt of a place It-is that they are in. When woraon exan.>lnetl politics they found it was housov'teepInK on a national scale, and as they have been tru!a(!d in houaekeepLnK tor generations It seemed only na>tural. As both p^ronts have something to say la every wall-regulated-household, so both men and women should have something to aay In national aiftalrs. The generally accepted reason for ,the war was, went on Mrs. McRlnney, the adoption of a wrong poJltlcal policy by .a.tfertaln Aartlon. This was Vhiit made war inevitable. � History rauds forward as well as backward, so t;;ci political policy of today shapes tlu' destiny of the nation 40 years htnce. (Therefore lor the sake of fu-turu ciUxiiBa wo must examine our - ov/Q pollu6al future. tor the puhlic good. Graft also should be reooKnized yi Its small Btages and be rectified before it comes big and powerful. � , The patronage system is the second evil. The government has done a splendid thing In acknowledging that it ddes exist. "The whole systeip of DoHtical llfo is honeycombed witlj it," said Mrs. McKinney. "Have we uiiy such thing as the patronage^ sys-leni in our o^vn provincial government'; Oel inside and see." Mrs. McKinney gave several illustrations. Concentration of Wealth. The third evil that is fastening \t-aclt, though not largely recognized, is (^S conceijftratlou of,wealth. "AlJ;th8 arteries of commerce in Canada" are tjontroliod by about 27 jjen," declared .Mrs. McKinney. "Ther^ls gradually grov/ing a suspicion that our Dbmlo-ion of Canada is not as much of a democracy ns we thought It was. 'What-cau 1 put into my lite' should he the spirit rather than 'What'am 1 going to get. out of ifV Mrs. McKinney claimed that the latter spirit liad even entered the educational system. ' She then went on to speak of and explain the campaign funds and to suggest that the people who supply the money for a candidate's expense have the whip hand over the candidate or party. ' "A democracy that Is worth the name is one that grows up in the people. It will o^y grow by educating the electorates so that they will take an active jMrsonal ihtcrest In the govemnjent. The time will come when women will not let others do their thinking for them. That is not their conception of femininity; it's insipidity. The evils have taken 50 years to grow and will take some years to eradicate," said Mrs. McKinney. Woman have not entered with the idea that they can reform it in a few days. There are many battles to brf fought after the war: the liquor traffic, the cleansing of political life, the war with the ballots. Those at home should be doing their part to make this Canada a better place for the boys to come back to. "May God help HB to be as faithful as they are," concluded Mrs. McKinney. At the conclusion a hearty vote of thanks was moved to Mrs. McKinney by Rev. C.B. Cragg. Mr. H. McG. Young gave an organ selection, prayer was offered by Mrs. McKeen, and two splendid recitations were given by UisB Mar}orie Smith and Miss Muriel X*odger.

All now have to register. Another ruling which has Just been made is, that no person can now register by mall. EJvery man must register in person. Local Offices Swamped, These new pnivlBiontt are having the effect of literally- swamping the local American con.fuliir oftlces. The registration is proving a vast task for a limited staff here, imd Btreatna of registrants come and go from the offices night and-day. The situation is rapidly getting beyond the control of the small staff here, and the new provisions will make it even more difficult to handle the work. More than loOO American citizens have already registered at the local offices, many of whom are expecting calls for service in the U.S. army shortly. The limit for final registration has not yet been fixed, but it is believed it will be October 12. Register Under Canadian Act.
