JTagrath's chief lieutenant in! his election campaign is raising quite' a fusS on the .'-platform tibout .Vlber-i ta not having control of its lands i and mines. iLr. Ives has evidently! forgotten that the Conservative par-; ty placed this question before the el- 1 ectors of Alberta in 1905 and as aj result only two men were elected toj the Legislature to voice the viewj that the lands should be possessed. by the province and not by the Do-: minion. I Mr. Ives' may sincerely believe that- this province should control its own' lands in preference, to receiving a' subsidy from the Dominion. Howev-' er, more eminent men in the party; than himself hold a different view. For. instance Hon. E. p. Roblin, the i Conservative Premier of Manitoba, has on several occasions, demanded! as fair treatment for his province was given Alberta, and Saskatchewan What does that ilo-ni has the lands.
