Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 7, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta VOL I. SATURDAY, MARCH 7, NO. 74 CONSERVATIVE PARTY KEEP 1 LETTERS for Nearly a Year Ottawa, March 7. Returns have been presented to the House of Com- mons since January 1 1906. An an- alysis made of these returns accord- ing to a statement brought down in the Commons today, makes an il- luminative commentary on the recent debate in the House, relative to the production of original documents. The Opposition a few weeks ago led by Mr. Ames and Mr. Foster, occupied two or three days in a vehement de- mand that whenever desired the orig- inal documents should be brought down or returned ordered. A record of what has. happened to many of the returns, brought -during the past year goes strikingly to bear out the contention of the government that 5f the original documents are brought down there is grave danger of their complete loss to the files of the de- partment with possibly serious in- conveniences and legal difficulties ensuing. Of the 355 returns brought ddwxi a considerable number have been appropriated by the members from the journal's office and kept for long periods of time running in some cases as high as six or eight months. Furthermore in a number of cases they have never bc-c-n re- turned at all. A. A. Lefurgey kept one return in bin possession for 2C-1 days and then returned it with a number of pages missing. Mr. Barker kept one out for 106 days and so on. Mr! Ames had taken out at least five returns which he has never re- turned at all. Mr. Foster, Mr. Borden, Mr. Clem- ents, Mr. Armstrong, Dr. Reid, Mr. I-tke, Mr, .Ketnp and others, all of which were most' imperative in their demands for production "orig- inal documents, have also carted off returns and forgotten or neglected to bring them back. Yet affixed to each return, is the following notice: "This sessional paper is .the property .of the House of Commons and must not be taken from the precincts. The member receiving same for reference or information is requested to return it to the journal's office -at his earl- iest convenience." Dr. Reid, in the House this after- noon again the complaint of the Conservative members that they were not allowed to see the copies of the original documents brought down by the interior department except when the public accounts cdmmittee was sitting. Mr. Oliver said if the committee passed an order that they should be viewed at other times, he would bow to this ruling, but would not depart the rule established at the request of any one member The premier told Mr. Foster that the report of the .commission, inquir- ing into the Quebec bridge disaster would be laid on the table of the House next week.

The matter is being freely com- mented on by the members in the lobby and around the government of- fices generally. The member for High River demanded with a great deal of feeling last Thursday that more time be given to the Opposition for con- .siderntion of the act to amend various statutes. He insisted that nothing would .satisfy his of fair play but adjournment until Monday. This tlie government agreed to though all arrangements had been made for the prorogation of the House on that afternoon. The queer part of the story as told in the; lobby is that the 'following day Mr. "Robertson u.sked for his sessional indemnity receiving it left for home on Sat- urday morning. His colleague, Mr. Hiebert. who with several other mem- bers had gone home for the week end, returned on Sunday night expecting to have a conference with Mr. Rob- ertson before the House met. Instead, he had a memo stating that the member" for High River hac PRISONER CUT HIS THROAT Winnipeg; March being taken-to Portage-la -Prairie jail by Constable Williamson, Thomas Demp- sey, of Rollin, Man., cut his throut while on tjic C.

Mr. Foster demanded a definite statement as to what tbe government proposed to do with the Ross Rifle factory. Sir Frederick Borden said the least? was for a period of ninety-nine years, but it Was within tho power of the government to resume .control by giving compensation. Armand Lorcrgnc declared that if the factory is to be removed the people of Quebec should receive a guarantee that it will not be lost to Quebec.
