THE TWO CANDIDATES II ii dear that the purpose of Mr. If if rath V journalistic supporters ii to besmirch Mr Simmons' name in tlie meanest and 'most despieab'e way. No argument is used. Mr. Ma- grath Is pxtolknl to the skies the ablest man west ol the Great Lakes. Sir. Simmons is characteriz- ed as a non-entity. Now the of Lethbridge and the Medicine Hat district, irrespective or politics, know that Sir. Simmons is every bit as com -petept a man to serve the district at Ottawa as Mr. Magrath. On the plat KEUFUiAL Park WtU's hay trcitar, QUMK TWr- form -he can ia own with any of but his opponents. He is particularly well informed on the public questio'ns of ihe day and when he goes to Ottawa, this riding will possess a represent tative in. every way capable of pre- senting its claims forcibly and ef- fectively before the -government. Mr. Simmons will also take a prominent place in the House of Comcmons as a good speaker, and the supporter of le- gislation in the interest of the whole people just as he has done at Edmdn ton during his service in. the Legis- lature. In advocating progressive le- gislation no man has taken a more active or effective part than the the. mem her for Lethbridge. The la- bor legislation, which was a feature of the last session of the legislature, no stronger or abler advocate than Mr. Simmons. He studied the eight- hour "laws and compensation. laws thoroughly and prepared a" mass of information, -'which was invaluable "in convincing the less informed mem- bers of the house of the necessity of this legislation: being passed. The Magrath press is very tree in its allusions tc the- services the, Con- servative candidate has-jrendered to Lethbridge. Now the Herald has fre- quectly expressed admiration o fMr. Magrath as a citizen of Southern Al- berta but it is not prepared to admit that he is any better friend of Leth- bridge or Southern Alberta than Mr. Simmons. It is true ihat Mr. Ma- grath served this city as mayor and the district as representative at Re- gina in the days of the old Territor- ial Legislature but that his record in either of those bodies was .better than that of -Mr. Simmons' during the time he has represented Lelh- bridge at Edmonton cannot be es- tablished. From the workingrnan's standpoint and more especially the minky class Mr. Simmons stands out prominently through' his active parti- cipation in the campaign for the pass age of an eight hour for the miners. ,Mr. Magrath on the other hand has admitted that he opposed and succeeded in removing from the "'books of legislation in the North West Territories an eight hour law for miners. Hon. Gc-o. E. Foster, one of Mr. Magrath's leaders has not been re- buked for telling the people of Prince Edward Island that if the Conserva- tives were returned to power they would build a tunnel from New Brunswick to that province and sure- ly it is not wrong for us to mention that Mr. Simmons succeeded in hav- ing Lethbridge made the head of a judicial district, and also secured an apropriatir.n for a magnificent new court lious- awl gaol nt this city. Is that doing anything for Lc-ih- bridgo? It shows 'hat Mr. Simnrons has ibout the Liberal candidate's hv.-hin "of to the land office and over the homcsto.irt -rr. other such bluster, that is as lh as Mr. Magrath ruaking such out of Got hit on th' track by the An1 they beat Park ia r. th'vnulroe4e ia rich.

One of the sev- erest wind and diist storms ever wit- nessed in visited this section a little "before noon, today. No dam- age was done.

The hell waa crowded to its lloors. Gue Keidig acted M chnirman and great credit ia due to Gus for the way be conducted the af- fair. A very fine programme -waa rendered; the opening of the aame was a speech of interest given by the chairman in regards% to the strike firat originated. He stated that on April 1st notices were post- ed ujj in all O.P.H. shops that after May 1st that the, laws and rules of the union would no recog nized. The new rules consisted of a sliding scale and other objectionable features contracted ia an open shop. A .committee, then was formed in Winnipeg representing the different trades. This committee was: unsuc- cessful in coming to any agreement, aiter which the men formed them- selves into one body .called the Fed- crated Trades Union. This meant that all the wphint'iil departments of the amalgamated, such as the machinists, boiler makers, black- smiths and car department and all helpers of the C.p.ft. This b the first time .that it has ever been knowiT. in any big corporation that so many men of different trades am- algamated. The union then applied :o the Minister Labor for a con- ciliation board the Lemieux Act which was granted. Evidence was then taken, on both sides which took a :.conswerabie length of time. Then .the conciliation board gave a decision or" majority report In favor of the CJP.R. except a few minor clauses which the C.p.R. accepted. For instance makers wages were reduced from cts. per hour to 42 cta> If this schedule of wages had been accepted this would mean all other departments would lowered as well. This is what caused the strike. thought there was no use to explain anything more as this is sufficient to show the people that the, working men were not at fault in the strike, but the-C.P.R. The men do not want higher wages or less hours but they wanfto hold what they have got. The strike is causing a great loss to the farmer and the country as a whole, and he hoped that people would give ev- ery assistance to help the poor work- ing man as they don't have are now going to beg but will give New Location But Same Low Prices II BERKS A meeting to organize a German Between Sage's and Lots will be held in the LIBERAL GIllpE IOB1S OTT BLOCK On W eat minster Ratd and CoortUnd Street to One-third down and bal- in one and two years at 8 percent A Limited Quly Tte L I. btaii Ifeiq PtOftSSIONAL Oft.
