DECEMBER 15, 1918 LKTHUmnr.K OAIt.V IIKHA1.13 PAGE iNINE (From tho Victoria Times) A, resolution adopted by a small in Quebec opposing conscription and stating that Canada had now done her part In the war, la connected In prose dispatches with the Influence of .Hoilrl Bourum. The first part of the resolution goqs on further than the public statements of ministers of Sir Robert Bordsn'8 cabinet. The sec- ond "Dart Is an altogether different matter, and It Is this which suggests the Influence ..of the Nationalist leader. Why is Henri .Bourassa. permitted to conduct his anti-recruiting propa- ganda with. Impunity? Tho Dominion government has prohibited the circu- lation of i Hearst's newspapers and news Canada for garbling dispatches to the disparagement of the allies. That was the' proper .thing to do; but why Is nothing done to prevent Henri Hourassn doing much more harm than the Hearst papers possibly can do? On the plat- form in his paper, Le Devoir, jBourassa, by vile slander and misrep- resentation has been trying ho hamper recruiting for months. In his recent ittack .on Sir Wilfrid Laurler ho boasted of the success of his thereby'exposing himself to drastic action pby the government. Why Is there no censorship of Bourassa? There is one of everybody else. Tho answer Is easily found. Prior to tho election of 1911 an alliance was formed..between Mr. Borden and. Mr. Bourassa-'by Joint onslaught "was to he made upon tho Laurior gov- ernment. The Nationalists were to: assail Laurier in Quebec on the navy policy, branding him as the. slave of British imperialism-, the other wing of the coalition was to. wave the, flag .in Ontario, over the reciprocity issue and charge the Lib- eral .leader trying-to-: weaken British .connection. No Nationalists- to oppose Conservatives and no Conservatives were to run agaJnsl Nationalists. The Nationalists- were to be financed out of the Conserva- tive campaign fund. The sclieme worked like a charm. Some twenty Nationalists' were -nom- inated .in' Quebec and their campaign, was financed out of the fund presided, over by Mr. (now. Sir Herbert) Ames. In Montreal. No Conservatives ran in the constituencies in which Bour- assa's men were nominated. Mr. Borden and his Conservative follow- ers did not campaign in Quebec. The issue there was the navy. About a score of-'Nationalists were elected in "Opposition to a Canadian naval service. .They declared that the Laurier navy measure- tfirst step towards a British plot to get their young men. to fight for "Bnglamt-in foreign seas." During the campaign Hon. Frank Cochrane, nqw. Minister of Railways and Canals in 'the federal .cabinet, im vlted-Bourassa to assist Mr. Borden In those sections of-Ontario in which there wore .French-Canadian electors. The leader 'accepted; he in tne Sudbiiry his theme being Liurler'u nefarious Ini- perlalUm. At North Bay he stood up- on a platform, under Conservative banners inscribed with names of Borden and Bourassa and fervently urgtd them to support "his Mr. Borden. When the election was won the price to .be paid. First, three Nationalists had to bo taken into the cabinet. Armond- I-avergne, asta's Heutanant, a record- breaking trip to Ottawa on a special train the night, before the ministry was announced, to see. if tho Quebec wing of the cabinet was satisfactory to hla chief. All Ottawa remembers that Incident, as It remembers Its sequel, the. announcement of the se- lection of Hon. F. D. Monk, Hon. W. Nantel and Hon. UP. Pelletler who had declared themselves to be follow- ers of Bourassa, as Canadian minis- ters of the Crown. Subsequently Mr. Monk died and a Bourassa man suc- ceeded Messrs. Nantel and Pel- letier were- translated to the bench, but Bourassa. Interests chose their BUcesGors. Hon. Mr. Patenaude, now In the Cabinet, was one of the organi- zers of the Nationalist campaign In 1911. Dr. Blondin, Minister of Inland Revenue, In a 'by-electifcn in 1910 said- that it had been "necessary to shoot holes in the'Union. Jack to breathe the air-of The pu- -sent speaker, Hon.-Albert Sevigny, was equally vigorous in-.his incendiary appeals, at that time.- V But the inclusion, of Mr. Bourassa's nominees in the cabinet did not square'. the account. There was still the Laurler naval programme to be wiped out. 'Eleven tenders from the greatest shipbuilding' 11rms in the United Kingdom to. build warships in Canada: awaited cosideration at Ot- tawa. These were hastily returned to the tenderers. Recruiting for the Niobe and .Rainbow, which hod ucen started: by...the newlyTcreated naval department, was stopped. The two training ships were dismantled and scrapped. :Cold "water was thrown even on th> naval volunteer move- ment started at as .every- body here'.itnows. Mr. Bqurassa's representatives in, the cabinet..were nothing it not-.vigilant in demanding payment in full. And they are Just as vigilant'today. The pact of .1910 still stands. That seems to-be the reason why nothing is done-to Henri Bourassa and why Armand 'can spoui. and still wear the uniform of His militia, why Oliver Aaselin and a gallant French Canadian battalion were sent-to.the Bermudas Instead ot to the front whore they wanted to go, and why Sir Robert Borden and those of his ministers who are not Nationalists do not: make recruiting Speeches in the-, province of Quebec. r i 11- f t i i i i i i 1 t i De Wolfs VARIETY STORE IT'S FULL OF XMAS GIFTS i S t If you are looking for something useful and something acceptable as a gift why hot a nice piece of china.
