The% population of .Manitoba evenly divided politicayy necessary that the voters' lists should be as correct as it is possible to provincial el- Conservativeg make them. In ections of 1907. polled only the the votes than tho Liberals. Yet so well directed were the efforts of, JLhe Conservative organizers that this small total ma- jority gave them 27-seats, the Liberals obtained only, 13. "The to- tal Conservative vote teas 50.5 per cent, of the cast; It will be seen from this statement that only a amount of manip- ulation, carried out with judgment; might defeat all- the Liberal candi- dates in Manitoba at the next gener- al Dominion elections.. The Liberal majority in ProvencherVis only 10; and, if the preparation- of the lists for Dominion purposes was allowed to remain ;in 'the hands of the Pro- vincial Government, there would be an almost irresistable temptation so to influence their compilation' as to upset the chances of .the Liberals re- taining that, seat; The Conservative majority fiT Ifar- quette is only "75; and the provincial government would feel an irresistable temptation to help Dr. Roche to en- trench himself' behind a few more stout and reliable Tories, whose right to vote, even as Tories, might be questionable, and whose .right to Vote if they, were Liberals, would not be upheld for one moment!

The revising officer was sitting .at .lleuusejour, and was in- formed .that, at .Lac du Bonnet, some 40 miles, off, there were many farm ers who would like to be registered but who, in .consequence of the dis tance, and the lack of the means transport, were not able to come to Deausejour. The revising officer ad jourhed his court to Lac du Bonne and enrolled .38; voters.. The lists were printed with these names them; but, when election'day arrived the lists sent for use at the loca polling division had.these 38 names torn out, aad the men were the franchise. The Attorney-Cener al's defence was that they should ne verv have been .on the, lists because they were registered .after the time fixed-for registration.
