Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 22, 1911, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbridge Daily Herald IV. Lfltbbridge. Alta..

The qiics- Tibn-wJiieU, tonight is agitating the leaders political parties and tlirpnglinut the I'mii'il Slates ALBERTA Medicine Buchanan, Lib., 3-10 majority, partial returns. C. A. Magrath'y majority last election the electors as strongly i-rals anticipated it wnidd, and that Lioeral gam. majority .partial returns. limy favored the Conservative policy of developing trade within the Em- pire and a restrictive attitude to- ward ihe. United States. The defeat of tbe Liberal Govern- ment means that the next Parliament will not have anything to do with re- ciprocity' when it assembles in Octo- ber, probnhly it mrans also that Sir Wilfrid Laurier will retire from public lite in the near future because lie is well advanced in years and feels that he has given the best years of his life to tho service of Canada in a public capacity. Conversing with a group of inti- mate friends in Montreal after tbe result known the venerable Pre- mier admitted that it was a decisive 'defep-fc for reciprocity and Ihe party. He said: "1 gladly lay down the premiership, a burden which I have carried for fifteen years. I believed ihnl, in making the reciprocity ar- rangement we bad done something which would he greatly io the bene- fit of the people of Canada. Tbe electors have declared otherwise, and I bow to their decision. T deeply regret that we have been unable to carry reciprocity for Canada which iwould have promoted the material advancement of Canada, and would Iiavc promoted the growing friendship between Stales and Great, Britain. However, the country has tpoken, we must bow to the inevit- able and 1 cheerfully do so." Such an overwhelming reverse was iiot seriously anticipated by either party, as the Liberals felt confident that the. main issue was one that would meet with the emphatic en- 'fiorsation oi' tbe more es- pecially in the rural constituencies, and they felt proud of their honored leader and full of optimistic enthusi- asm for the final outcome. Whilr the Conservatives claimed l.hat llicy would get a majority they did iiot expect that it would be "so large, or that- the general verdict of the country would be given so decis- ively against the goveinment. They feanvl that reciprocity would prove popular with the farmers of Ontario nntl the farmers and fishermen of the maritime provinces, and while con- Jidettl I hat they would win in the cities they were dubious as lo Ihe result in rural constituencies. Contrary to expectations, in On- 1ario Ihe rural vote, went remarkably strong against reciprocity, which niiisl, he accepted ns an evidence that1 the farmers did not generally ap- prove of Hie agreement.
