A a a the two flags on Greenway Campaign picture trouble the times. We might explain that one of them is the distance Flag for Hugh John. In in a according to the times or. Mccool has not yet Learned How co a Pell a defeat Quot be will go to the foot of the class in his first attempt. Brandon cannot afford to be behind the rest of the province says is be times Hight for once Green Iray s majority will be Larder than Heron a a a we do cot know what reason for defeat the times will give on december 8th. It admits that subterfuge and trickery of unscrupulous opponents do not exist. A a a the dismal failure of Hugh Johua a matting throughout the country a few Mouths ago has now become of popular enthusiasm according to the Campaign Sheet. Creditors and the a meeting to the times Speaks of the Lessly extravagant Man Gemei the finn is of the or. Is Celt. Patron who went into hip legislature to keep Down expenses and to see that the government was economical said the other Day that Quot he considered the financial administration of the Greenway government a Marvel a demonstration of economical management. If anyone would examine closely arid compare with Hie administration of the past he would come to the conclusion that the govern ment s management of meagre income was a marvellous Doc. Mclnnis and Billy Henderson the Star Candi tut a of the conservative party. A a a neither Hugh John nor sir Charles put in a word for or. Mclnnis As candidate in tire coming contest. Why ? a a John l. Gray a North Brandon Farmer who was in the City this morning says a. C. Fraser is o. K. In that constituency. The times Calls Hugh John an a intrepid is it referring to ids to old stand on disallowance or his a pfc Skive action in saving this country from separate schools ? a a for months the times has been demanding an immediate election but it Sii Eaks of a a night attack Quot and a a spate i verdict evidently preparing for overwhelming defeat. A a a Hugh Doh a mentioned the Canadian settlers in tile United states. He did not state these men left Canada under conservative Rule nor that they Are coming Back under Liberal Rule. A Hugh John s defense of lawyers legislators was weak. The fact that sir a Edfrid Laurier is a lawyer is no reason Why Hugh John is capable of managing Manitoba. There Are differences even Iii lawyers. A Hugh John in his speech Here repeatedly referred to sir diaries tripper As his a respected and esteemed Leader by what authority does the Leader of the opposition at Ottawa assume suzerainty Over the would be poem it a of Manitoba ? a a a a not one Dollar of bonded debt on the province that was not fully Hugli John has added the last clause since he first spoke at Neep a u even in so important a matter As this Hugh John a know lodged a mistake through ignorance. Yet he thinks himself capable of run big Manitoba. In in a sir diaries Tupper stated that the liberals had not added one Jot or one title to the present Prosperity of the country. He explained it however. It was due to himself. Confederation and the c. P. It. Were the real causes and As he told us in the afternoon he was the father of the c. P. And confederation i a a a Jill of. Sir Charles Tupper is one of the few remaining links that connect the present with the past says the times. Quite Correct but our Eon temporary of night have a titled that lie belongs to the past rather than to the present. H a political Sun is set just As Hugh John Macdonald s will be eclipsed on december 7th, 1899. In in a Hugh John said he did not bring Oit his policy sooner than he did for fear that Greenway Woald steal it. It tills platform was so valuable Why did he include therein clauses of which one has been Law for nine years and snot Lier that has been the Law of Manitoba for six years. Truly Hugh tor. There is cons Crai a wit dissatisfaction the Hole and Corner methods adopt e i by a sect iou of the conservative party in having l r. Mclnnis nominate i it a secret mucus. Tile meeting was not made Public and Only a few were present in the Little office in which it was held. This is probably one reason Why the tunes with tears in its vote beseeching by Calls upon the full strength of the party to rally round the nominee of a few. A tile times Speaks of Greenway 8 a outrageous railway deals Quot is it referring to tie introduction of the Northern Pacific which g. R cold Well and most other conservatives approve or has it in mind the Dauphin Road which or. Sirett says was obtained Ion terms next test to government construction or Doc St re Law it to. The South Yim Val approved by the Winnipeg Organ Oftle a conservative party ? Quot in Hugh John s speech. Hon. Hugh John Macdonald s Steech on provincial Issue was exceedingly disappointing to both liberals and conservatives. It was expected that he would make a comprehensive re View of provincial politics and Woald give an exposition of Ufa platform. Such however was not the cae. There Are Nineteen planks in his won Iler Ful platform and lie dealt with Only four of them. The other fifteen Are presumably useless and Hugh John is evidently afraid that if they Are mentioned they will decidedly counteract the four which he considers Good. Hugh John will Cut Down expenses he says but he should have told the audience which Grants he intended to Cut Down. Will he Cut Down the Grants to schools or hospitals or agricultural societies or Farmers institutes or All of them ? let him take up the list of expenditures and show what items lie will economize on. He cannot do it. Ile has no definite plan of Reform he is merely talking to win votes. In regard to the reduction of salaries he has adopted the admirable policy of keeping Ilia own up to the top notch but cutting Down that of his Rural supporters. He believes in paying Good men like himself Good salaries but the Ordinary Rural member is not Worth very much. It is so benevolent of Hugh John to keep up his own salary and Cut Down that of others on tile immigration question Hugh John has reversed his policy. As minister of the Interior he encouraged galician immigration at the Oak Lake banquet he rebuked or. Fenwick for speaking against the galician but if his followers do not like his opinions he is ready to change them. He has done so in a dozen instances of which this is Only one. The last Point of Hugh Johns speech was his announcement that he had resigned his solicitor ship with the c. P. R., Aud was perfectly free to Deal fairly with Iii n. P. Or any other line. The electors however will remember that he has been a . Solicitor so Long that he is not Likely to advise anything or do anything contrary to the interests or the company that has paid him $5,000 a year for a Long time. On the other hand or. Greenway has kept himself free from c. P. Influences has been a Armer All the time and so is prepared to work for the interests of the Farmer and the province. It does not take a Farmer Long to decide Between a c. P. Solicitor and a Farmer for Premier of the Prairie province. Sir Charles speech. Tiler May have been a tuna Iii the history of Canada when the style of platform utterances indulged in by sir Charles Tupper May have had some weight with the people but that time has Long gone by. The increasing lated Gene of the masses and the dissemination of political information through thousands of newspapers have raised the plane upon which electors now judge political measures Mal political parties. The Man who believes that All the Good resides in one political party and All till evil in the other is a Rara Avis. The Man who believes that ail the political leaders on one Side Are illustrious statesmen while All the leaders on the other Side Arn imbeciles or scoundrels is to Day considered a Mon maniac and almost fit for a to 4 a. it. 5 a am ----1-- a Imp a a two til tilt Niubo to which s r Charles Tupper belongs. His so eth Here might be summed up As follows a Laurier is an eloquent imbecile. S ton is an incompetent scoundrel. To Rte is a disloyal corruption St. I air is guilty of robbery. Fisher is a weakling. It is said that the session Al indemnity will have to be doubled before or Evans will consent to become a candidate a a a Billy Henderson thinks one humorist in politics is enough and does not like the idea of or. Mclnnis infringing on his political Patent. Tits conservative party in _ were kept Busy to Day appeasing the Wrath of those influential members of the party who consider the nomination of or. Mclnnis a a blazing to a ret see Brandon conservatives first talked of bringing out or. Gaetz. They finally it Teidel to run or. Mclnnis As one More truly representative of the party. A ooh what a fall from Grace was there my a a a or. Charges Adams committee room which a located on 8th Street opposite the Palace hotel has presented a Busy appearance since it was opened on saturday. Ward committees were organized on saturday and a great Deal of work upon the lists was done. Today canvassers Are out in full Force and All reports Are very favourable to the representative of the Farmer Premier. An Independent. What w. F. Sirett Independent member Beautiful Plains says about the Greenway government for at a meeting id the Council chamber Brandon or. A f. Sirett spoke substantially As follows a id a wrong step. He Felt he could say that it would be a wrong step to turn out or. Greenway and put in his place the men who were aspiring to attorn Power. He could not always agree with the government but he would always sail in the same boat As those who were going the same Way. Dauphin railway. Or. Sirett was emphatic in his approval of the in government policy in regard to the Dauphin railway. He himself had favored government ownership but he thought the government had done the next Best thing Aud he congratulated them on their railway policy. He also agreed with the governments action re Transfer of m. Amp n. W. Railway lands it was a Good settlement of a bad bargain made by or. Norquoy. N. P. Railway. Or. Greenway suction in securing the Northern Pacific railway was warmly endorsed. There was no question of the benefits to the province and to the Farmers particularity on account of the lumber t brought into the Conn by in Competition with the rat Portage lumber Combine. On him tier alone it had saved the Farmers twice the amount the Road had Cost the government. Economy. Or. Sirett said he considered the financial administration of the Greenway government a marvellous demonstration of economical management if anyone would examine closely and compare with the administration of the past he would come to the conclusion that the go veil men t s management of their meagre finances was a marvellous thing. Or. Siretti a Frank avowal of his Independence minor disagreements with the govern Mert and at the same time his Hearty end oration of the general policy and economical administration of Public affairs avas heartily Sun nov. 18th, 1890. Ottawa nov 13.�?is sir Charles Tupper thoroughly responsible for what he says surely he cannot be entering his dotage. At first sight Sutti a suggestion May appear unwarrantable but do not recent utterances from the conservative Leader More than justify the suggestion of such a suspicion ? take for example his remarks upon the administration of tile Yukon made in Winnipeg a few Days ago when replying to or. Paterson a assertion that or. Sifton was willing to lie tried by his Peers sir Charles is reported to have said a it would be a sorry thing for tire House of commons if Sifton had Mon Peers. Clifford Sifton dared not Grant the commission asked for by sir ribbon Tupper. Had he Sifton done so he would have been driven a degraded Man from the Public life of the country when arraigned at the bar Sifton like a Coward shrank from the encounter Quot simply not True. A More Complete travesty of the facts it would be impossible to devise. As is thoroughly Well known to every elector who keeps in Ranson Lily close touch with current events the minister of the Interior met and replied to every detail of the two famous a indictments Quot which sir Hibbert Tupper brought against him and that too in the absence of his accuser who on both occasions singularly enough found it necessary to take the next train to the Pacific coast immediately after making his so called there May be an honest difference of opinion As to How completely air. Sifton answered the charges and met the accusations made but no Man wit ii the slightest knowledge of the facts can possibly with any regard for the truth Deidre that he acted a like a Coward Quot or a shrank from the Contes to Quot As the Toronto Globe observes a it is a pity that a Man of sir Charles tappers experience in Public life should talk such miscible and scandalous rubbish. The truth is too that the Yukon charges Are dead that or Sifton has been splendidly vindicated and that never before in any land was a new territory better administered or such Large revenues from Public resources secured for the people Quot. Or tart and the Empire. So much space has been occupied in the opposition press in discussing the supposed attitude of the minister of Public works in the matter or the Transvaal contingent that the general Public May be excused it it has become somewhat confused a to the facts. Till Point As Issue is a very simple on and should not at any time have been misunderstood. Or. Tarte himself states the Case plainly and tersely in the course of a letter to a gentleman in Toronto published two or three Days ago. He says in part a what i object to is that we Are called upon to raise troops and to pay Money without having any right whatever of representation in Quot Imperial politics. I feel that such a policy will bring undoubtedly dissatisfaction and mistrust it cannot be otherwise. It is very Well to say that the people of Canada or of other colonies. Have this time made a voluntary offer. In Point of fact the Sec Rumor says that Ald. Coldwell will tie a candidate for the mayoralty. Or Harcourt is mentioned As a popular candidate for school trustee it is said that aldermen my lev ride Kelly and Fleming wish to retire from tile Council. A a. It is whispered that w. G. King will be a candidate for Alderman and will show next years Council a How to do it Quot a a a in connection with the rumoured retirement of three or four Alderman there is a prevalent opinion that the present Council should All stick together until they have accomplished the purpose they had in View or Els All resign together. G. A. Middleton dead. A Well known North Brandon Farmer died this morning. The death of or. George Alex. Mid diet on a Well known Farmer who livid a few Miles North of the City took place at the Hospital this morning at 3 of clock. For the past two weeks the deceased has been ailing with inflame Tion and on sunday he was removed to Tho Hospital Fife is a brother of or. William Middleton of North Brandon. And or. Peter Middleton of this City. The funeral will take place of saturday afternoon at 22.80 from the residence of or. Peter Middleton 13th Street and Mctavish Avenue. 0jr own Kruger. At Portage la Prairie or. Macdonald took to harping again on his King Presque ideas in regard to franchise exclusion. To failed to explain How he would Frame legislation to enforce his special Brand of Kruger Asru the English language seems somehow to be unfitted for the conveyance of such explanations which or. Macdonald finds it easier to convey in epistles to the icelanders articles in French in his St. Boniface Organ and other forms and versions constructed for Benefit of various classes of the people each being invited to believe that he is its most devoted Friend and press. Or. Sifton a Cha Iii Enge. Why did sir Charles Tupper not accept or. Sif Tours Challenge made on the floor of the House. A i ought not to sit Down without referring to the fact that throughout the speech of the Hon. Gentleman there has been a continuous trend of suggestion that there was some improper or corrupt connection Between myself or some member or members of the government and the Klondike District. I want to say that i Challenge the Leader of the opposition i Challenge the members of his party in this House i Challenge the members of his party outside this House i Challenge the press of his party to produce their private detectives to come Here upon their responsibility and press their charges. I Challenge the member for Pictou or any other Man in this House to Lay upon the table the charges that he has to make and is ready to substantiate by evidence and he shall get his investigation and i think i will be Able to convince the Hon. Gentleman whoever he May be that discretion on his part would have been the better part of valor of Paterson is a in Reant betrayer whose apaches Are an to the intelligence of the people. Til the Good that has Ever been done in Canada was Dona by the conservatives and All the evil by the such extra no weight whatever with Manitoba . Who an All fir nearly All i too Ojen minded and ind Epen Lent to j be caught by any such party clap trap. People Here had read of the astounding audacity with which sir j Charles was accustom i to accuse All j of the government with i till times is imploring the faithful to vote for or. Mclnnis not for his own Sake but because it would be a vote for Hugh John Fenwick of Alexanderi and his friends from that District ant utterances have j disappointed in sir Charles tup i or e speech. They found no ammunition they could use. A or. A. Fenwick is reported to be elated Over the prospects in Lansdowne. We presume he is about As sure As he was about the Public printing extravagance. members enormous incapacity Gross Malad ministration and Gigantic but the a surd to tile Situa mime a Ltd Tiwu is drive Zed until Lucy a a Hilr the sorry Tad sir Charley made of himself last night. The Brandon times will soon Issue a new Book entitled a Why i refused nomination or an apology for doubt in tile conservative part Quot needless to say it is written by a. Caldwell who now has e. Evans As an Active collaborate eur. A a a sir Charles Tupper and Hugh John Macdonald after their attack on the Greenway government at the opera House this week will take a rest of a few Days in the City before proceeding to Moosomin. Either the people Are not anxious to hear the father of the c. P. Monopoly or there has been very bad management on the part of those who Are arranging the sex pne Raier a circuit. Education of foreigners at the last meeting of the Winnipeg school Board a deputation from the trades Council and the . Was received. They urged that immigrants coming to the country ans handicapped by Lack of knowledge of the English language. They would have a share in the future of the country and should receive benefits of present education. Therefore they wished to Lay before the Board a proposal to set aside a part of the school funds for providing night classes for teaching the English language to ret Rev of state Dor the. Mamys it. A Quot cd school accommodation heat ii Cir Cinal 1�?o a already a to liable Aud All that i would be necessary would be to provide a few additional teachers. It i was As much for the purpose of enabling these people to become better Citi Zens As to help them in earning their daily bread. It sent a circular to All the colonies the Mea ii my of which is an invitation to Send troops. In my opinion such an invitation Means practically a request Well if we have to take our share in the wars of England let us have a word to say about a reasonable proposition. A the people of the province of Quebec Are just As Loyal As their fellow citizens of other origins. But you must not forget that being a minority they Are More anxious than their English friends to stick to the Cana Ald Martin from the y. M. C. A also state that the association had carried on this work for some time but their efforts for various reasons were necessarily limited. Holy trin i Ity Mission had also carried on this work. As a Canadian he believed we Dian Constitution As it has been in i a /1� emigrants to de stood and practise i up to this Day. I of thl in pm obtaining a knowledge i have not the slightest doubt that i cation of the deputation spoke in the same Strain. The chairman suggested that the deputation As far As possible prepare a report of How Many would Likely take advantage of such a school. Or. Benson pointed out the difficulty Iii securing a teacher who coaids satisfactorily teach Pup is of a number of different languages. The chairman promised to see that the matter received attention and the deputation withdrew. Slightest doubt that they would object to closer relations with England provided this country obtains fair representation i think it would be More advisable for the people to discuss calmly the situation than to accuse each other of disloyalty a this is a1 reasonable proposition surely but unfortunately other View live been imputed to or. Tarte views which he never held nor gave utterance to. As one paper Lias recently remarked a Elf the conservative papers would let or. Tarte make his own speeches we should have much Jess trouble in the the cry is a still they although the season is far advanced the tide of immigration continues Una bating Over one thousand sturdy settlers arrived in Montreal on monday and tuesday of this week. The new arrivals were mostly English scotch and Irish but there were also a number of i Reoli. Norwegians Swiss. Galician finns austrians and russians. Tile year has been on of unprecedented activity in this Branch of the country a development and when the season s figures Are finally made up they will Ive found to be in excess of anything previously recorded. Lack of population has always been tie greatest hindrance to our country s development but the intelligent prowl a a Prucy of the present minister or the Interior is overcoming the obstacles at a rate which a few years ago appeared altogether impossible.
