MR. RODGERS AT CONDAH [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 27 August 1914

MilR.: RODGERS 'AT CONDAIf Mr. A. S. Rodgers, Fusion can didate addressed the electors in the Mechanics', Condab, on Tuesday after noon. Cr. F, IN. Cope (Shire Pre sident) occupied the chair, and, despite the unfavorable hour, there was a fair attendance. The caididate vigorously denounced the Labor party. He ad. i'ocated electoral reform, because he maintained the present system did not make for majority rule. The Labor patty had laid down the diotum that all who were not with them were against them. Arguing from this the candidate con'erided that the votes polled for Mr. Roland and Mida Gold stien at the 1910 Senate e'ection should be coonted to the Liberal party. He contended, therfoute, that the Libe rals had a majority of votes polled, yet the Labor party secured thbt three seats. That was t-ot democracy. To prevent this Ihe advocated proportional representation id the Senate, and pre ferential voting for the other Hiuse He was opposed to the Initiative Referen duem. It wou'd d...

WANNON ELECTION. MR. RODGERS AT LOWER CAPE BRIDGEWATER. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 27 August 1914

WANNON ELECTION. MR. RODGERS AT LOWER.. CAPE BRIDGEWATER. At the local schoolroom on Friday afternoon Mr. Rodgers addressed an audience-one might a most say a con gregation, for during the speaker's re marks there was not an interjection or a motion of assent or dissent to indicate that any of the auditors had a soul or a mind of his own. No new ground was broken, but a clear and forcible exposition of Liberal policy was elven. At its conclusion thr. chairman, lfr. W. F. Hedditch invited questions. A long, sad-looking cove, who appeared to be in the last stages of influenzs, and whose voice was a cross between the equeak of a half strangled penguini and the music produced by a drunken sailor sharpening a cross-cut saw in an underground cave, fumbled with a paper. It was Peter. He asked, "Is the candidate in favour of the Federal Parliament passing resolutions for or against, or interfering in any way in the mat ter of Home Rule for Ireland. Mr. Rodgers heatedly resented what he call...

Mr. Mackinnon was not de feate3 because he was unsatisfactory as a councillor, but because he was an active Laborite and was reFresenting a riding where the an.tiLahor ratepayers about doub'ed the Labor ones.

ZT IS A MATTER OF FACT. That backache, rheumatism, gout, neu ralgia, bladder troubles, stone. gravel, lumbago, sciatica, nervousness, dizziness are caused by diseased kidneys. Many men and women look upon symptoms of ailments as trifling. But no symptom of kidney disorder is trifling, for it shows that the kidneys are failing to filter the poisonous ario acid from the blood, and this is the beginning of most diseases. At the first sign of kidney disorder, begin with Dean's Backache Kidney Pills, they cure every form of kidney trouble, be cause they are a special medicine for the kidneys. Mrs. J.
