Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 28, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta rtortssioNAL CAW OfUt 114 tedptth 01 t ftjt to Printing waiai W. A. MJCH Ot- one dtttwno.

(9) The placing of a prohibitive tax Mr. Borden, Mr. Ames and prac- Of on Chinese labor; this for tically every Conservative orator, go around the Dominion, terming this deal a scandal- and promising the people that these lands will be re- turned to the people. It is true, Mr. Borden did not talk this way of the Robins irrigation proposition at Med- icine Hat nor of the Saskatchewan Valley Land Co. at Saskatoon, be- cause he was afraid he might offend the voters at, those places, who know these deals to be perfectly straight and in the best interests of the coun- try. Sirs Wilfrid Laurier goes into the lion's den of the Manufacturers' Association, and tells them frankly that he does not favor'increasing the -duties on woollens, but Mr. Borden when he goes to Saskatoon and Med- icine Hat is not, honest enough to repeat the statements he makes in Eastern Canada. If a thing is wrong at Toronto it is wrong at Medicine Hat, but Mr. Borden, aiming to be a politician, instead of a statesman, "is all things to all people." The Bobbins irrigation contract is sound and a credit to the Liberal govern- ment. It will develop a vast tract of country, enabling settlers to go in upon the laud, and produce crops, nuiklng the- country richer and the population larger. Mr. Borden knows that to be true, when he is at -Medicine Hat, but when he is in the East he tries- to get votes the other way by condemning the deal as crooked. But as to the position of the Con- servative candidate in. this matter, At Medicine Hat he he would oppose Mr. Borden if-he attempted to interfere with the Robbins irri- gation contract. At Magrath, according to a report in his personal organ, he said "He would east- hJs vote against R. L... Bor- den and party if they failed in their promise of .restitution of the public domain." At Medicine Hat he is against Mr. Borden and restitution, in the case of the Robbins Irrigation Co., and at Magrath he is against Mr. Borden if he does not carry out the policy of restitution. the protection of Canadian labor.

(13) An arrangement effected with the British Government for a prac- tical cessation ol immigration from India. Only the other day Sir Wilfrid Laurier announced that die Liberals, if returned to power, would create a portfolio of labor thus giving a place in the cabinet to a minister, of labor and again uplifting labor in the pub- lic life of the country. The labor man does not get every- thing he asks for, but if he looks al fairly and squarely, he cannot but admit that the Libera goveemment has treated him as wel as any pthei class in the country. .___ ady, a prominent- church worker (jf 1 i sister church, who, having no, um- brella, was lamenting her inability ;o reach her car safely.

WHAT HAS BORDEN DONE In his address-at the Young Liberal Club rally on Saturday evening Mr. Simmons asked: "What has Mr. Borden promi-ed to do in the way of legislation for the laboring classes. Have you read or heard him say one word in any of his speeches in favor of legislation of any kind for the labor The most fervent admirer and ad- vocate ol Mr. Borden cannot answer that question in a manner satisfac- tory to the labor classes. Mr. Bor tea and his lieutenants neglect to treat labor legislation seriously. They men- tion it not upon the platform. They cannot point to a record of labor ;r- gislation framed and adopted by C' nservative government in the pis and they do not place in their pint fonn one single plank that a man can look to as a measure ful to his cause.

These purists do not try to bribe single constituencies, but go in for whole provinces. There is Mr. Foster, who went to Prince Edward Island and told the people he was ready to spend on a tun- nel." In similar scathing terms Sir Wilfrid condemned the attempt of Mr. R. L.
