BACK. IS '96 In 189G there was a general feel- ing of unrest and dissatisfaction. The people applied the remedy. In 1900 the elections were fought on imrnigra tion trade relations, transportation, and race questions. In 190-1- trans- portation and the new transcontinen- tal railway were the chief questions before the people. The Liberal gov- ernment was retained and the Con- servatives were defeated. Mr. Simmons then showed how the trade policy of the government had been successful during the past twelve years as also has been their immi- gration policy. In 1896 the country xvas crying for immigrants. Xow we can discriminate. The promises of 1896 have been more than fulfilled. "Why is the Conservative party ask- ing you to change over your alleg- asked Mr. Simmons. "There is no attack on the general policy of the government. Thc campaign bids to be one of petty scandal. Some things appear to be not just right but it is not just known what they arc. The charges are''made so vague ly that it is hard to chase them. They are will o' the wisps." :NO DEFINITE CHARGES In 1896 definite charges were made. Thc charge was stated, the accused named, and the charge proven. In the last fovr years no one has made a definite charge against the Liberal ity become finance minister again if the Conservatives were returned to power. GEO. E.
