TORIES ARE FAVORED IN THE MANITOBA USrS (Ottawa Free Press) In tha discussion ot tho. reasons wliich exist lor Fcilcr.al intervention in tlie revision ^of tho voters' lists in Uratiltoba we Imvo already shown tliiit tlio system ot personal i-dglstra-tion lends Hsolf to manipulation ot tho lists by the partisan ofllcials ot tl>u I'lovinciivl government; that tho plan of revision is inadequato; that generally tho aim is to load tho lists. NO PUBLICITY A third factor which helps to ron-ilor tho revision inofllcioht, iH the lack of pul)licity of the work ot the registration clerk. Ho merely, posts tho result of each day's work on the door of tho pincc, where he sits to receive upplicationB; nnd, ns, .in most cases, tho Iniik of tho settlers in his district live from 1 to 200 miles away, �tliis can hardly be regarded as a satisfactory way of publishing tho results of his work. If, ns is not unknown, tho revision is arranged to talio place four days after closo of registration, a man in tho distant parts of tlipdistrict has no chanco o^, knowing what ia transpiring in connection with tho making up of tho lists; nnd, when thore Is no more pub licity than such as is in voguo in Ma-iiilolm, and tho revision is rushed on in a tow days, tho registration and I'ovlsion might Just as well be carried on Ijohind locked doors, with W. It. Hastings, Consorvallvo organizer as presiding ofllcor. Tlioro is scarcely time to servo no-l.iees of ai)peal in cases whoro tho jioHt ofnco addresses aro known, and no time whau^.voi: to hunt up the addresses of pooplo, whoso post ofTlco addresses do not appear In tho register. Under tlio (xdmiirlstration of tho Hon. Thomas Green way, tho lists had to 1)0 printed nnd published throughout a constituency 30 days boforo tho court of revision could bo hold; and, if a nuin's nnmo was wrongly omitted M;0 N D a Y , JUNE IB, 1908 and ample opportunity to find it out and got himself reinstated at the Court of Ilovision. All sorts of mal-nlpulation can therefore tako-place under the present practice. According to tho Manitoba Order In Council, issued on April 25, tho registration in tho provincial constituency of Beautiful Plains is to close on Juno G' and the,revision is to take IJlaco at Necpa%va, on June 10, be-, tweon tho hours of 1 p.m^ and .6 p. m.-flvo hours for the revision of "a .widely 6.\�cndcd area, with upwards ,of 2,000 names. The Gimli registration is appointed 'to close on Juno 8 and tho revision to take plACo on Juno 10. Tho registration in tho constituency of Lakeside is to close on May 30, and tho revision to take place at Macdonald on'-Juno 8,' be-tweon 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.-tlvo hours again for revising a populous aroa. Tho registration in Springfield constituency is to close on June 0 and tho rovlsion to tako piaco at Bcaus-jour on Juno 12, between J.1 a.m. and 0 p.m.-seven hours to royiso an'� other vory populous const!tuenfa^. ' , In tho caso of Beautiful Plains, ttio time mentioned is not enough to cbni ply with tho roqulromont.s of tho law. For tho registration clerk Is permitted to tako two days, after tho closd of registration, to mako up his lists and tho lists have to bo in tho hands of the revising ofrtcor who in this caso lives o,t Winnipeg, three clear days boforo tho revision tokos place. Th? short time elapsing boforo the registration and rovlsion in Springfield barely permit that the rovlsion will correct the lists being carried out; o!nd tho same is practically tho case In regard to Liilcosido. All this shows that thoro is no guai'antoo that the revision .will �cr-root tho partisan bios of tho "preliminary lists, lot alone clean up the doad accretions of, lapsing yoars; and from tho lists, ho had plenty of time! to omphaslzo tho degree o^ that parti $2.65 and up to $30.00 Baby Carriages and Go Cafts The reliable kind with the best springs and gea:r that we can buy.

Twenty-six Llboral voters were refused ro-gSatratlo� by this ofllclal, of the Manitoba govornnient. Thoro was aomo Stir made In the nowspapors, and, W-!tor, trying to prevent the liamcs bo-put. on'at the revision, W. II, Hastings, tho OonsorvatlVo organizer, had to adm,lt that the men wore qua-IKlod to vote and they wore duly enrolled. In tho same year, there was agitation over tt similar instance of disfranchisoniunt, tiirough tho partisan prejudice of a registration clerk ;ln the Selkirk division, nnd, to save Its,face, the i)roviBClal government introduced a bill to enfranchise sovcn electors, who had Ijcen refused registration. ' Hcw ToniEs. Anic favored The law says that every person who wisiios to be put on tho prolinvlnary list by the roglstrution clerk must attend and make the declaration laid down in the law, Tho i)rovlHion Is often not carried out in the cnso ot Conaorvntive applicants; and tho validity ot the registration of names put on without the personal attond-nnco of the applicant was tested before the revising ofllccr at Morris In June, 190(5. It appears that tho registration clerk had entered on the list three Conservatives who had neither aiijjlied personally nor made tho oustoiTwiry statutory declaration. Tho Liberals contended that, as the law had not been carried out, the names should notbo allowed;to stand. But tho revising ofllcer overruled the 6b-jection, and said that, as It had not boon shown that they wore not entitled to vote,, ho would not disallow them. The Attornoy-Oeneral of Manitoba was elected, In tho following March, on tho casting voto of the returning o/Hcor, but. If these three voters had boon struck olT, as by law thoy ought to have been, the Attorney General would have been defeat-, ed. It will tbus bo seen that the registration clerk can, In the intoi-ests of tho Conservative party, take applications from those who tind it inconvenient to attend, and refuse similar Applications from Liberals, who, through the imper/ection of the means of comm�nication or pressure of business, are unable to appear at tho registration booth. doors shut on voters There is also an'instance of the flagrant bias of a revising ofllcer. The officer's name, is Bonnar, and, fortunately he was not a judge, but merely a revising barrister, which the board of judges had power to appoint to sit in their stead. Bonnar sat in Winnipeg in. 1005, and closed his court while hundreds of people were awaiting to bo roglstorod. The matter was taken to tho Supremo Court on n writ of mandamus to compel tlio revising ofTlcer to re-open his court and give the people a chance to register. The Supreme Court held that Bonnar had the same right as a County Court judge, to keep his court open or adjourn the sitting. The law was right and tho ofllcor wrong, but at tho next session ot tho Logislaturo the Oovornmont altered the law 80 that It should not bo right again. Bonnar, however, iiovor ro-openod his court. Between tho timo of tho application of tho mandamus and tho time fUed tor the hoar Ing, he allowed, with tho connivance ot tho Qovornment, his papers to be returned to the tlovcrnmont; and thereby surrendered all power to hold any further revision. Consequently there was no redress. the moving spirit In tho whole series of electoral and registration scandals in Manitoba, since tho Conservative Goveriiraont took offlco in 1899, the moving spirit which has bred thorn, has been the Oovornmont Itself. The partisan actions of officials have been but a reflection of the ndminlstrativo moth 6ds ot tho Provincial Government. When, in 1903, the Attornoy-aenoral himself, or some responalblo olUclal in his department, undertook to tear contemptuously from the lists tho "names of thirty-eight duly qualified oloctprs at Ldc du Bonnet, ho showed how little there was In the profes slons of the government that they .wantgd abs6luto fairness as between party and party, and, sinco then, ov ory revision has shown tliat whatever may bo their professions, thoy moan to take whatever advantage can bo bbjolnod through holding tho exec utlvo control in connection with tho administration of their own electoral law, liVhy, If It was fair to tear out the 88 Lac du Bonnot names, did tho Attornoy-Goneral not tear out tho thieo Morris names, just as wrongly on the lists?
