MUNICIPAL ELECTION 1915

EDITORIAL NOTES
Thoro Ih a good deal of "rot" talked
about imlitirs and politicians, and tin*
terrible temptations and dangers of
tlie life of a politician. Hon. W. S.
Fielding and Sir John Thompson
could huve made millions when iu offlce. And yet no clergyman or college professor has won a more honorable or stainless nnmo than these
two men. And then are hundreds of
other Canadians who could be named
who might have made fortunes In
tlieir political offices, but who never
made a cent in a dishonorable way.
Some of the ablest and most honorable of our puhlic men today are poor
men and there would be very little
hope for our country if the views of
a certain few were well founded and
the poor man should keep out of political life because of its temptations.
The man who enters politics ready to
plunder the country as soon as elect-
ed to office is a common thief and ;
should be behind prison walls Instead of representing tho people.
TO THE RATEPAYERS:—
We have consented to allow our names to go before
the people and respectfully solicit your support for
Aldermen for the City of Cranbrook. We rely on our
platform of economy and safe, sane, business government
as the most necessary requisite for the conduct of muncl-
pal affairs this year.
We are tied to no policy except our own best individual judgment in conserving the best interests of the city
as a whole. We realize that only by the strictest retrenchment can the city cope with the present financial situation and it will be our aim to save the ratepayers money
and keep the tax rate as low as possible.
If elected, we will give our time and attention to the
city's business and will endeavor to see that the city"s interests are in every way carefully safeguarded.

Theie is a well rounded prejudice

lo Tackle This Matter
Having been approached
'from time to time by various
bodies of ratepayers and citizens of Cranbrook requesting
me to become a candidate for
alderman, I have decided to accept.
While I have no complaint
to put forth at this time against
past systems or government of
civic affairs ,1 do contend that
a great deal towards the success and building up of our city
depends greatly on the council
and whatever council be elected
requires the harmonious cooperation of the general citizen and ratepayer, and I further contend that one of the most
essential things is the support
and protection of the business

ployecs In this district could serve
the public ns well under Liberal rule
as Conservative. They havo their
minds on their jobs and they do not
persistently stick tlieir noses into
other people's business. On the other
hand we are possessed of a few civil
servants who are conspicuous because of the prominent part they try
to play In politics. At the recent Conservative nominating convention au
immigtatton inspector in full uniform
not only participated but addressed
tlie meeting. One other government
employer* assisted In getting delegates to attend and two men with government jobs are running their legs
off night and day for the local candidate. Another local government
employee abuses any Conservatl ve
whom he (inds giving work to tlie
Herald. Ho has persistently done
this and some of these days we will
publish his name with full details.
These are the kind of public officials
that are not only bringing the Conservative party into disrepute, but are
making nf British Columbia a by-word
In the outside world as a hide-bound
political autocracy ruled by politicians for the good of politicians only.
Good government and British Columbia are not synonymous these days.
It was Abraham Lincoln, the sage
of American politics, who said, "Yon

time and some of the people all of the
time, but you can't fool all the people

our astute premier, would do well to
-study the above saying. He has
footed all of British Columbia some
times by catch phrases such as "A
White British Columbia," etc., und he
has successfully fooled some of the
people for the past twelve years but
—by hand—Is not apparent to the ordinary citizen.   When he ls caught ln

BE NOT OVERCONFIDENT
Discussing the outcome of the ap'
proaching provincial election tho
Kaslo Kootenalan, among other observations, has this to say:
"The McBride government, despite
Its critics, wlll no doubt go back Into
j power witb the bands playing and tho
{flags flying. Sir Richard's govern-
, ment has Its faults and has Its weak
points; It has made some blunders
and Ib cordially hated by a bunch of
would-be spoilers, The fact, however,
remains that the opposition has only
so far developed a bunch of nincompoops for leaders."
It ls to be hoped that the Kootenalan did not wish to be taken seriously when giving publicity to tho
foregoing. If It really wus ln earnest
the Liberals should bu delighted to
have our contemporary continue the
good work.
Tho late Sir John A. Macdonald Is
authority for the statement that thero
Is nothing so uncertain as a horse race
or a general election—-and he might
truthfully have added to the latter
clause, particularly In hard times.
It Is too Boon ufter 1911 for the
electors to have forgotten the oft-repeated assertion of tlio federal Liberals that there was no cabinet material among the followers of It. L. Borden; yet the people of Canada returned
him and his party to power with a majority almost as large as tho Liberals
had prior to tho appeal to the people.
In Ontario in 1905 a similar cry was
heard concerning the Conservatives,
then headed by thc late Sir James P.
Whitney, but when the returns were i
atl In at the general election ln Janu- j
ary of that year It showed the Boss

Sir James In control of the legislature by a vote of almost four to one.

The fact of the matter is the taxpayer of Cranhrook want a man and
they want him now and they want hlm
badly to deal with the dust nuisance.
We want a man to deal with the dust

once In a while, and as luck wlll have

seldom raises much dust. Let us return to the dust nuisance.
We have the dust nuisance tackled
now. A few years ago one of the
aldermen of the corporation Introduced the subject of oil sprinkling
tho main streets of the city, but he was
treated as a Joke.   The sentiment of
its affairs the needed attention
that at least a portion of the
elected body can spend four or
five hours daily in the office in
promoting and directing further industries towards the upbuilding of their city.

This does not seem like a very hard
