There was a very tair attendance, and the delivered were attentively listened to, Mr Simmons' exposition of the labiw holding the very marked interest of the audience. S. J. Shepherd, president of the club, was in the chair, and after explaining the purposes or meetings, which will be held Saturday night up till -the eye ol the election, he called upon W. A: Buchanan, who ipoke briefly upon the western policy- of the Liberal party, pointing out "more especially the development thmt had taken place under Liberal rule. He also pointed out that Mr. Simmons had supported the labor legislation" ed by the. Alberta and mentioned incidentally that the Gov- ernment had introduced and passed these- lawa iu; the face of a sentiment in the agricultural communities not favorable to short houri and com- pensation. W. C. Simmons :made one of the best addressee he has ever delivered in Lethbridge. It a; fair and lucid explanation of the labor legis- lation passed at Ottawa and Edmon- ton by the Liberal Governments in power there.- He reviewed all this 'and pointed- :dat that while it probably did not meet de- mands of the laboring men Tin each case, still the adoption of these measures, proved clearly that, the Liberal party was eager the interests of the labor clasees.

A bridge which had been burning collapsed, and three men were killed, one seriously injured, and thousands of dollars' worth of rolling stock and freight destroyed.

What 'legislation Its' term of office '.What poicy in regard to labor has Mr; Bbrdcn enun- ciated during his When he was at Lethbridge did he mention labor in any way? As a matter of fact, said Mr. Simmons, the Conser- vative party arid Mr. Borden were without a policy on this great ques- tion. At this point Mr. Simmons re- ferred to the Conservative party's ih- connection with the C. P. K., a corporation that had been given a huge gift of land and a monopoly of the west. To-day this road was mak- ing fortunes for its shareholders, and yet it set about to crush out the Ma- chinists'- Union and reduce the wages of its men. If Mr. Borden came to power there is no 'doubt' that the .leader of the Conservative party in th? Senate, Senator Loughced, C. P. R. solicitor, would be taken into his cabinet, and also E. B. Osier, one of the directors of the C. P. R. What could the workingman expect in the way of legislation with such strong corporation influences in t.hfe Cabinet? To-day, through the action of the Conservative party, the C. P. R. had lands unused to-day that, if sold, would pay the national debt of Can- If elected he would use his efforts to secure the rights of the peo- ple over this powerful corporation. Mr. Simmons pointed out that Sir Wilfrid Laurier had announced that a Minister of Labor, with a seat at the Cabinet, and who would his entire attention to labor matters, would be appointed ii' tfie Liberal party was returned to power. Labor would then have a ita own in the councils of the nation. In closing Mr. Simmons declared that some of the high officials of the A. R. and I. Co. were going up and down the country using their influ- ence against him and in favor of Mr. Magrath. The corporations were actively opposing him, arid he looked for the support of the people who wanted to rid this country of cor- poration influence. During the evening muaicai selec- tions were contributed by Messrs. Ely and H. Westley, of Regina. Their numbers were gVeatly enjoyed. TABCR COUNCILLOR DEAD, Taber, Sept.

Ben Barton, a youth of 16 years, had the horees in charge, and was on his way to the farm to disc, when, without apparent cause, the horses suddenly became unmanageable, and ran for nf-arly half an hour at breakneck speKl over the entire town, being guided from fences by the young man. Finally Clarence Layton, upon horse- back, rode in front of the team, bringing them to a halt. Fortunate- Montreal, Sept. Edmonton, Sept. tho street car system of Edmonton approaches completion considerable discussion has been raised concerning the opera- tion of the system on Sundays. On onquiry at the Government buildings tb-uay it was learned that section 241 of the Railway Act of Alberta, which prohibits the .operation of electric railways or tramways on Sunday, vas suggested to the Legislature by ,he Rev-. J. Shearer, secretary of the Temperance and Moral Reform League. It was urged that this pro- vision had already been adopted by of thti older provinces, and was considered a wise means of securing setter observance of the Lord's Day. When, the matter wa's brought be fore the Legislature there was some discussion of the merits of the sec- tion proposed by the Temperance and Moral Reform League. The genera' sf2.timent of the Legislature was for passing the suggested section as. s reasonable measure, with the under standing that here, as in other pro vinces, any company or municipality desiring exemption from this enact ment should bring each individua 'case before the Legislature, and have ita claims to the' necessity of opera tion on Sunday considered there. As is well known in Edmonton th present local and inter-urban tram way system is the outcome of Ed inpnton's purchase of the Strathcon Robertson, daughter of Mr. James M. Robertson, of the Thomas Robertson Company, met with a horrible death on Saturday evening. The family are still occupying their summer resi- dence at Beaconsfield, on the Lake Shore. Miss Robertson, it appears, was a somnabalist. Late Saturday evening she was discovered to be iasing from the house. Search was instituted for her, and she was soon found lying in a dying con- dition beside the C. P. R. tracks, which run some distance in the rear of the house. She was clad only in her night clothes and slippers. She was removed to the Royal Victoria hospital, in this city, but died with- out recovering consciousness. She was 23 years of age, and was engag- ed to be married in the near future to Mr. Charles Shearer, of Montreal. Radial Tramway Company's frai Section 241 of the Railway Act of is province reads: "Xo company or nunicipal corporation operating a treet railway, tramway, or electric ailway shall operate the same or rnploy .tiny person thereon on the :rst of the commonly ailed Sunday, except for the pur- pose of keeping the track clear of now or ice, or for the purpose of loing ortier work of necessity." The marriage of Miss Gladys Bour- chier to Mr: Thomas Kelly was iolemnized at All Saints' .Church by he rector, Ven. Archdeacon Grey. Both bride and groom most popular, and although scarcely a core of invitations were issued the church was well filled with friends. The bridf, a strikingly handlsome girl, .vas gowned in white Duchess satin, ind was accompanied to the altar by Vur father. The bridesmaids were Miss Kate Bourchier and 'Miss Paug- nan, of Toronto. The groom's at- tendants wore 'Mr. Rathburn and Mr Firth. After the wedding breakfast Mr. and Mrs. Kelly left by the C. R. for yKastern Canada am England, and will be absent for six months.

FAIR WAGE IN ALLCONTRA6TS The world of politics is well astir n central Alberta now, but the cam- >aign will_not likt'ly be a bitter one. 'n Edmonton the general belief is ,hnt the Hon. Frank Oliver will be eturned with his usual largo ma- ority, and this takes from the t-lec- ion the interest that uncertainty vould loud. The engagement- was announced Hon. W. H. Gushing States, the Position Of Alberta nt Wesley church was wel! filled at both services yesterday by large audi- ences that, in spite of inclement. and bnd walking, came to hear the venerable superintendent of the Methodist Church. Rev. Dr. A. Carman, preach. Nearly every Cana- dian born had already heard the doctor some time during the half cen- tury ofv his active ministry. Dr. Car- man has lost none of his old-time vigor and ability as a preacher, and yesterday he preached two powerful sermons. In the morning, preaching from 'Pfialm-50, 2: "Out of Zion, the per lection of beauty, hath the preacher spoke of the trinity of ancient philosophy, truth, and goodness, and compared them with the trinity of explicit revelation, 'loci the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost. The former is a trinity of principles, the latter of persons, and the humblest revelation of the latter is infinitely higher than ihe highest attainment of the former. The trinity of principles was the basis of natural religion, and man could be saved by to them. God was in them, but the ancients could not find Him. The revelation of the trinity of parsons was neces- sary. Truth is the basis of all science and philosophy, beauty of art, and goodness of virtue and religion. All have faculties, intellect, taste, and conscience, corresponding to the trinity. The last must predominate in a proper man. The preacher losed with a description of the phy- rcal, intdleectual, moral, and spirit- ual beauty which shines in Zion, the jhurch of God, and made an'-appeal !or his hearers to find and .get in the :rue-living church, -'which-.is compos- ed, of men and who have re- m the company and of Jesus Christ, which Church knows-' no denomina-: nal-distinctions.
