A not one Dollar railway with Iff Green Way is adopt a towards Northern Pacific Extension a poor Henderson and Fenwick the chairman would not give them a Chance to show their faces and Hugh John was apparently ashamed to even mention their names. A a a the conservative party managers were kept Busy to Day appeasing the Wrath of those influential members of the party who consider the nomination of or. Mclnnis a a biasing a e a Brandon conservatives first talked of bringing out or. Gaetz. They finally decided to ran or. Mclnnis As one More truly representative of the party. A ooh what a fall from Grace was there my a or. Charles Adams committee room which is located on 8th Street of a a to. A a. To iul.u4wu us quo bar Ucb of the dts urn i failure of Hugh Johns meetings throughout the country a few months ago. Has now become popular enthusiasm a according to the Campaign Sheet. A a a i the times Calls Hugh John an a intrepid Leader a is it referring to his bold stand on disallowance or his aggressive action in saving this country from separate schools ? a for months the times has been demanding an immediate election but it six in of a a night attack a and a a fun Etc t verdict a evidently preparing for overwhelming defeat. A a a Hugh John mentioned the Canadian settlers in the United states. He did not i Tato these men left Canada under conservative Rule nor that they Are coining Back under Liberal Rule. Hugh Johns defense of lawyers legislators was weak. The fact that sir Wilfrid Laurier is a lawyer is no reason Why Hugh John is capable of managing Manitoba. There Are difference even in lawyers. A Hugh John in his speech Here repeatedly referred to sir Charles Tup per As his a a respected and esteemed by what authority does the Leader of the opposition at Ottawa assume suzerainty Over the would be Piso Pitit a of Manitoba ? a a a a not one Dollar of bonded debt on the province that was not fully Hugh John has added the last clause since he first spoke at Neep away even in so important a matter As this Hugh John acknowledged a mistake through ignorance. Yet he thinks himself capable of running Manitoba. Sir Charles Tapper stated that the liberals had not added one Jot or one title to the present Prosperity of the country. He exp med it however. It was due to . Confederation and Tiiu c. P. Were the real a auses and As he told us in tto afternoon he was the father of the c p. And confederation. A a sir Charles Tapper is one of the few remaining links that connect the present with the past says the times. Quite Correct but our contemporary of night have added that he belongs to the past rather than to the present. His political Sun is set just As Hugh John Macdonald s Wiit be a ii used on december 7th, 1899. A a Hugh Johns speech. Hon. Hugh John Macdonald a speech on provincial issues was exceedingly disappointing to both liberals and conservatives. It was expected that he would make a comprehensive review of provincial politics and would give an exposition of hl3 platform. Such however was not the cae. There Are Nineteen planks in his wonderful platform and he dealt with Only four of them. Tto 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 to 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 Stow what items lie will economize on. He cannot do it. Lie 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 his own up to the top notch but cutting town that of his Rural supporters. He believes in paying Good men like himself Good Ealar Les but the Ordinary Rural member is not Worth very much. It is so benevolent of Hugh John to keep up his own , and Cut Down that of Otto is. On the immigration question Hugh John has reversed his policy. As minister of the Interior he encouraged galician immigration at tto 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 0. P. R., and was perfectly free to Deal fairly with the n. P. K. Or any other line. The electors however will remember that he has been a . Solicitor so Long that he is not Hka by 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 air. Green Way has kept himself free from c. P. Influences has been a Farmer All the tone 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 Jinni n Farmer for Premier of the Prairie prove e. Nity will have to be doubled before or Evans will consent to become a candidate a a Billy Henderson thinks one humorist in politics is enough and does not like the idea to or. Mclnnis infringing on his political Patent. De a Busy appearance sin it was opened on saturday. Ward committees were organized on saturday and a great Deal of work upon the lists was done. To Day canvassers Are out in full Force and All reports Are very favourable to the representative of the Farmer Premier. _ n Independent a a what w. F. Sirett Independent member for Beautiful Plains says about the Greenway government. At a meeting in the Council chamber Brandon or. W. F. Sirett spoke substantially As follows a 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 attain 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 government policy in regard to the Dauphin railway. He himself had favored government ownership but lie thought the government had done the next Best thing Aud he congratulated them on their railway policy. He also agreed with the government s action re Transfer of m. Amp n. A railway lands it was a Good settlement of a bad bargain made by or. Norquay. N. P. Railway. Or. Greenways action 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 lumber alone it had saved the Farmers twice the amount the Road Hail 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 govern meet s management of their meagre finances was a Marvel Loua thing. Or. Siretti a Frank avowal of his Independence minor disagreements with the government and at the same time his Hearty end oration of the general policy and eco Orni Cal administration of Public affairs was Hearty Sun nov. 18th, 1899 of moral philosophy. To v. Tto eighteenth a stove the Iteal rights of a to people and a Ltd but by no Means least the end to tto nineteenth Century has Totcke de a political a it Max in handing town tto name and to Tot. Mclnnis As tto representative of the great conservative party in or amp Ndon City. Ottawa notes. Ottawa nov sir Charles Tapper thoroughly responsible for what be a ays surely he cannot be entering his dotage at first sight a Ulii at 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 tto Yukon made in Winnipeg a few Days ago when replying to or. Paterson a assertion that or. Sifton was willing to be tried by his Peers sir Charles is reported to have said a it would be a sorry thing for tto House of commons if Sifton bad Udo amp a Peers Clifford Sifton dated not Grant tto commission asked for by sir hib Bert Tapper. Had to Sifton done so he would have been driven a degraded Man from the Public life of the country when arraigned at the Tor Sifton like a Coward shrank from tto encounter a simply not True. A More Complete travesty of tto facts it would be impossible to devise. As is thoroughly Well known to every elector who keeps in reasonably close touch with current events tto minister erf the Interior met and replied to every detail of tto two famous a indictments a which sir Hibbert Tapper brought against him and that too in tto absence of his accuser who on both occasions singularly enough found it necessary to take the next train to tto Pacific coast immediately after making his so called there May to an honest difference of opinion As to How completely or. Sifton answered the charges and met the accusations made but no Man with the slightest knowledge of tto facts can possibly with any regard for the truth delare that he acted a like a or a shrank from tto contest a As the Toronto Globe observes a it is a pity that a Man of sir Charies tappers experience in Public life should talk such miserable 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 each Large revenues from Public resources secured for tto tart and the Empire. So much space Lias been occupied in the opposition press in discussing the supposed attitude or the minister of Public works in the matter of the Transvaal contingent that the general Public May be excused if it has become somewhat confused As to the facts. Tto Point As Issue is a very simple one and should not at and 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 ago. 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 Imperial politics. I feel that such a policy will bring undoubtedly dissatisfaction and mistrust it a cannot be otherwise. It is very Well to say that the people of Canada or of other colonies have this time made a Volun a Uin Cipal matters. It. T Rumor says that Aid. Cold Well we be a candidate for the mayoralty. A a a or. Harcourt is mentioned As a popular candidate for school Trust Honor. A a a it is said Tuiai aldermen Mclair ride. Kelly and Fleming wish to re tire from the Council. A 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 a a in connection with tto rumoured retirement of three or four aldermen there is a prevalent opinion that the present Council should ail stick together until they have accomplished tto purpose they had in View or else All resign together. G. A. Middleton dead. A Well known North Brandon far Mer died this morning. Tto death of or. George Alex. Middleton a Well known Farmer who live a few Miles North of the City took place at the Hospital this morning at 8 o clock. For the past two weeks the deceased has been ailing with inflame Tion. And on sunday he was removed to the Hospital. Efe is a toothed of or. William Middleton of North Brandon and or. Peter Middleton of this City. The funeral Wilt take place of saturday afternoon at 22.30 from the residence of or. Peter Middleton 13th Street and Mctavish Avenue. Of or own Kruger. At Portage la Prairie or. Macdonald took to harping again on his Kruger esque ideas in regard to franchise exclusion. He failed to explain How he would Frame legislation to enforce his special Brand of Kruger ism. Tto 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 1s its most devoted Friend and press. Education of foreigners at the last meeting of the Winnipeg school Board a deputation from Ihu trades Council and the . Was received. They urged that immigrants coming to the country Are handicapped by Lack of knowledge of the English language. They would have a share in the future of the Coon try and should receive benefits of present education.

Sifton a i Cha m of nerf Al Al a via Jurf a 8ir Charles speech there May Hae been a tuns in the history of Canada when the style of platform utterances indulged in by sir Charies Tupper May have had some weight with the people but that time has Long gone by. The increasing in the. Egg Nee of the masses and the dissemination of political information through thousands of newspapers have raised the plane upon which electors now judge political measures and political parties. The Why did sir Charles Tupper not accept or. Sif tones 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 Man who believes Hugh a John said be did not bring a it his policy Nouer than he did for fear that Greem Vay would a Teal it. If 111if- platform was so valuable Why did he include therein clauses of which one has been Law for nine years and another that has been the Law of Manitoba for six years. Truly.

Tto 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 tto Canadian Constitution As it has been understood and practise up to this Dav. I have not the slightest doubt that Ould object to closer relations with England provided this country obtains fair representation. I think it would be More advisable for the people to discuss Cairney the situation than to accuse each other of Dis loyalty a Titis is a1 reasonable proposition surely but unfortunately other views have been imputed to or. Tarte views which he never told nor gave utterance to. As one paper has recently remarked a if the conservative papers would let or.

The year has been on of unprecedented activity in this Branch of the country a development and when the seasons figures Are finally made up they will to found to be in excess of anything previously recorded.
