"In the first he said, "the nomination of an ex-president of the United States for a third term would have been in violation of an unwrit- ten rule. "Col. he declared, "has fomented more than any man living the discontent and class hatred ex- isting among our people; he has as- sailed the judiciary, and undermined the confidence of the people In our judges; he bad advocated revolution- ary doctrines; he had shown that he despised constitutional restraints; ho had held us up to the contempt ol world as politically a dishonest peo- ple, and he was known to be a Soc- ialist at heart, although protesting that he alone eould save the country from Socialism. AH appreciated his ability, his eloquence, his exaltation, his great personal magnetism, his fierce and tireless energies, as well as his insatiable ambitions, his impa- tience with any rule of law that curb- ed or checked his own will. His do- termination was to rule or ruin the party, and all were beginning to per- ceive that this enthusiasm was rather for the arena, and for power, more than for principles. But his very popularity, similar in many 'respects to the popularity of .Kearney, the sand lot-orator, and of Bryan the Populist, was likewise the weakness "of Roose- velt as the" candidate of a great party. The qualities which attract and make him popular, with the unthinking, re- pel tho thoughtful, lie sober-minded and the patriotic. "A third reason why the majority in the Chicago convention should not have cast aside President Taft and nominated ex-President Roosevelt, was, because to hare (lone so would have been an act of presidential treachery, ingratitude and dishonor. President Taft hud earned and de- served re-nomination fo-r great and faithful service to the nation and the party." Mr. Guthrie defined the great issues of the national campaign as follows: "First, tho constitutional right and power of congress to protect Ameri- can industries and to preserve onr present industrial system; second, the threatened overthrow of the re- presentative system of government in state and nation by the Introduction of the initiative, referendum and re- call, and. third, the assault upon the administration of justice in American courts."

Dr. Nagel Schmidt, a Gurmuii physician, noimces in the Berliner Kleinschu I At last the city council has arrived at a basis in which to offer sites in ndustrial Centre to prospective Leth- jridge industries. For four years the and which was bought in North Letli- iridge for this purpose hns been ly- ng unused, and the Board of Trade been unable to make any defi- nite offer to Induce manufacturing oncerns to locate here. With the .bove as a basis the whole matter vlll soon be put in concrete form, and Lethbridge will then be in a position to offer manufacturers such induce- ments as will make this city as at- tractive as any other in the Canadian west. The whole question was 'brought to a head last night at the adjourned meeting of the city council by the application from the Lethbridge Iron Works for a site in Industrial Centre. C. H. Magrath was present to lay the proposition before the council, on" be- half of the company, aud the Indus- trial committee of the Board of .Trade was also present to support him in his request. Iu opening the discussion' Mayor Batch stated that as the Lethbridge Iron Works was an established con- cern they would be pleased to hear what Sir. Magrath had to say, aud give him their support In so-far as they might be permitted to do so. What Iron Works Want Mr. Mag-rath stated in brief the plan his company to move to the new one thing I would like..'to be decided upon. The taxes on such, a large par- cel of land would be about ten per cent, of tho !fixed charges. For the first four or years it would represent a-darge part of the outlay, and I don't think the company would consider moving to the new site unless the matter ,of taxation were dehnitely would like exemption from taxation, for ten years."
