Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 21, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta LCTHftMIDQC, ALT A., MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, III! PAGE THREE TEe DAILY HERALD Front now until the day after the Election, Oct. 27th at m Herald Office Political Gossip The Conservative Ottawa Journal says, with admirable sense: "Hardly anything can be worse to luuiy politic than to cry wolf where there is no wolf. A very great number of people" unfortunately arc- predisposed to believe' the worst of politics and of whnt. men in politics will -do, and so every really intelligent and decent man should be particularly careful not to say or adiait without proof anything which may strengthen such an public administra- tion is necessary, it must be carried on politically and municipally; it should be carried on by honest and honest men are rendered averse to and driven out of connection with public administration by the feeling that they may be classed as corrupt- ionists and boodlcrp merely because they usk or accept publfc office Therefore the person who withou knowledge or proof asserts the exist I enco of political vice contributes to drive honesty out of politics, he con- tributes to turning public adminis- tration into a monopoly of politic- ians of low standards and rotten I morals, and so helps to do desperate there has been a vast change indeed; Scarcely a single copy of a British T is issued from the press which does not contain many and extended oferences to Canadian affairs. And ho nvws items referring to this coun- try are now eagerly read by tens of thousands of persons in the old Urid vho twelve years ago did not "know whether Ontario was one of the Am- erican States or .not, or if St. Law- rence was a river or mountain range. Sir Wilfrid Laurier is a name known almost as familiarly to Londoners as that of a Chamberlain or a Rosebery and he has been by far the most pro- minent figure iu the colonial confer- ences since his first appearance there. It is a just and noble tribute to say that uuder his leadership Canada has becouw a familiar name in foreign lands and upon the lips of strange peoples who but a half score years ago never heard of its existence." injury to ihir community." I The Acadian Recorder very aptly of the best points made by Hon. Wm. Paterson in his speech of Friday night at North Sydney was that in connection with the relative importance of Canada in the eyes of the world since ifiOo compared with its position before that date. In 1895 he paid a visit to thu old country. At that time tne famous Cabinet crisis which caused Sir Mac- kenzie Bowcll to call the Ministry 'nest of traitors' was stirring the Dominion from Cape Sable to Xoot- ka Sound. Naturally he thought that a condition of such moment to this country would attract considerable attention across the ocean. But the London Times devoted only one sraal paragraph to tho matter. In that prominent paper, the Glasgow Her- ald, he was unable to find one line about Canada, and, in fact, for some days he could find no reference to Canada at all in the Scottish papers Such, in short, the figure cut by this country in the eyes of the peo- ple of Britain up lime when Laurier assumed the reins of power in 1896. Since that time, however, The Cranbrook Herald says: The Herald is still waiting for some Con- servative organ, in Western Caua'da to condemn the practices indulged in t Colchester to secure- a Conserva- ive victory. Why is it that these pa- ers that are supporting tho Ccmscr- 'ative party have not the moral ourage to condemn political rotten- ness in their owa party? The Lou- Ion election was without a doubt and the Herald said so at (he time, but the sfcrvile slaves of party are afraid to say a word at this time. Poor things. They are slaves indeed.
