EOc A LESSON FROM SIR JOHN A.'s BOOK. FEW Conservatives in Hie 'West, who are wonl lo twit Ilieir Liberal friends for Hie stand Ihe Liberal pArly look on Ihe question of control of unlural resources in 1905, rcnlly know tliat they arc twilling Uial great scion of Conservative principles at mention of whose name they rever- cnlly their John A. Mncdonald. They fail to realize loo, evidently, thai when UIPY make the charge thai Liberals have, done a on .Ihe question "of iiaiiirai re- Kmuces control, that they themselves, as Conser- valives, have done the very same thing witliin the history of most of its. Listen lo what the Edmonton Journal, Con- icrvnlive organ, had to say some few weeks ago it was announced lhat the premiers of lite three prairie provinces had united in asking Pre- mier Borden lo fulfil the promise .lie madejn 1011 that he would, if elected, turn the conlro of natural resources over lo those provinces, in accordance with the Halifax platform: "IV is a good Ihing that the premiers of the three prairie provinces have been able to get lo- geliier and formulate a policy on Ihe question o natural resources. There is no reason qt this lal singe For making the matter a parly issue. "II is a groat pity that when autonomy was 'granted lo Alberta and Saskatchewan the Lib- erals of thnl clay did not join with ihe Conserva- tives in the demand for a complete provincial plains. It hns uol taken long to justify, coin- Jilctcly the altitude of .Ihe minority at lhal lime. But now lhal (here is no difference of opinion, 51 is well lhal all should unite in bringing about Jhc. transfer." Compare Ihis with (he speech made by Sir [Wilfrid Laurier recently on Ihe occasion of the debate oi> nalural resources, in which he refers to Ihe exact words of Sir John A. Macdonald on Ihe same subject: "But let HS come lo the broader aspect of llu's question. There is more than my riglii lion, friend imagines in the point he has attempted 1o make (hat the other provinces have to be tak- rn into account in Ihis matter. I-el us go back lo (he Act of lOOo. Al lhal lime 1 put it clearly before the House lhal Ihe for the Do- minion lo udopl was lo retain these lands in the control of the Dominion and not hand them over lo. liio provinces. I based myself on the prece- dent given in Ihe creation of Manitoba; I fortified Miysclf with the language of Sir John llacdonald llic man who is eulogized by Conservatives cvery- Jjvherc, but whose teachings they neglccl every Uny of Iheir life. Speaking on this very subjecl fcs to (he rclenlion of the lands by the province b[ Manitoba, Sir John Macdonald used Ihesc adian government now offers, thejmpres- sive the mind of ihe men contem- plating immigration is thai a well-known and recognized government holds unfet- tered'in its own hands the, lands which it offers free, and that that government hiis its agencies and organizations for direct- ing, receiving, transporting and placing the immigrant upon the hbmeslejirl which he may select. And if the immigration operations of Ihe Dominion, which involve so large a cost, are to have continued S'jo cess and are lo be of advantage (o Mani- toba and Ihe Northwest territories, your sub-committee deem it to be of the utmsot importance lhat the Dominion gprern- mcnl shall retain and control Ihe lands which it has proclaimed free .to all com- ers. there other considerations of sufficient force to induce them lo recom- transfer to Manitoba, and as a consequence and by. precedent Ihe sur- render to Ihe provinces to be created from the Northwest territories, all the lands within their boundaries, then they would advise lhal the provinces holding the .lands should conduct (heir own inirnigrn- tion operations at their own expense.' 'The-se views Impressed themselves strongly ipon me, nnd so I made them Ihe Lasts of llic creating the provinces of Alberta and Sns- I supposed, of course, lhal the views of the man who, of all men, hail built up the onscrvative parly and given il a policy would >e accepted by his followers, tn this, however, 1 was sadly mistaken. My right lion, friend, then sitting where 1 now iil, supported Hie proposi- ion made by one of his followers that these ands, contrary lo the judgment of Sir John Mac- donald, should lie taken from llic control of the Dominion and handed over to the conlrol of the provinces." We hope our Conservative friends will read carefully the position taken by great slnlcs- man who raised the principles of the Conscrva live parly above; the pettiness of parly politics, and lhat when next they feel prone to make cap- ital out of the facl that Liberals are now demand- ing control of np.turol resonrrp.s for Ihe prairie provinces, whereas in 1905 they hclil an opposite view, they will slop and consider slrind Sir John A. mighl hnvc been expected lo have Inken had he been prime minister in 1005, and ponder whether they themselves might nol be able lo wear llic coat of a different color with some de- gree of consistency. The success of the undertaking by Ihe Dominion government in and for the Northwest, depends largely upon (he set- tlement of the lands. Combined with a great expenditure in organizing and main- taining an immigration service abroad and at home, parliament pledged its faith to Ihe world that a large portion of those lands should be apart for free home- steads to all coming settlers, and another porlipn (o be raid in trust for the educa- tion of their children. No transfer could, therefore, be malt, without exacting f rom- tfco province Ihe moat ample securities that thig be maintained; hence in so far ai the fret lands extend there woiU be no monetary advanUge to the' province, whlbrt a transfer would itri- (icwly til (he costly immlgri- HOB operations -which the Dominion gov- ernment a making mainly in behalf of Manitoba and Uie'ferrilories.
