Sir George Foster in Impassion- ed Speech Defends Record of Unionists OTTAWA, March pas- sage of the promised franchise bill and constitutional steps toward the holding of a general election were urfled in an amendment to the reply to the address from the throne moved by Hon. W, L, Mac- kenzie King, leader of the oppo- sition, in the house of commons this evening. In his speech, which preceded the moving of the resoiu- tloiT, Mr. King asserted that neither the house of commons nor the cabinet represented the Cana- dian people. -There was no min- ister from the Maritime provinces and: therefore three million were without voice in cabinet'mattcrs. He claimed the government no longer trusted the people. There- fore it was time to secure a repre- sentative house and cabinet. Sfr George Foster, acting prem- ier, in reply, made an impassion- ed defense of the. Union govern- ment and its accomplishments. As, to the opposition's demand for an i efection, he thought Jt was accom- panied by the hope that the reso- lution would be defeated in the house, then Mr. King would have the credit of having asked for 'a general election. At the time, would risk the dangers to itself which lurked in an appeal to the people.
