Incompetent For Member Of Opposition (Continued from Front "in 1904 when Herron and McKen- zio were the Conservative and Liber- al candidates, Mr. Laurie, President of the Conservative Association of Cardstou, A. E. Moore, holding tho same position at Baymonii and two Conservatives in Lethbridge, natur- alizec placed on the voters' list. 77 Chinamen. The record of this is with the Clerk of the Court at Mac- leod, and I will paf the expenses of any man to Macleod and return to make search of same.. (Our Judicial capital was then at Macleod but the Rutherford government nas chanced this and we do not now have to transact our legal business at Mac- leod.) If you can find in any record in Alberta where I have naturalized Lethbridge District. To The Elector? of Lethbridge District: am a candidate asking your support, not by my own wish, hut because strongly urged to do so by a very large number of Electors. The District is so large, and the time before Polling Day, so short, that it is utterly impossible for me to meet all of you personally, and I take this means of reaching you. My only Politics is summed up in the words "Lethbridge District." I will earnestly use my whole endeavor to push to a rapid comple- tion, those things in the interests of this District, which legislation al- ready passed, promises you; and I will support the present, or any Gov- ernment, in any legislation which they bring forward in the interests of the people of this District. T have been farming and ranching in your midst for almost twenty- five years. The older settlers know me, and to those of you who do not I refer you to the older settlers with confidence. I appeal to you to drop, politics and tc think of your District only, and I believe that my knowledge of conditions and the. wauls of the peo- ple in this District will enable me to present our requirements and secure their fulfillment. I approve of the Government ivailway policy, and by voting for me you will approve of it. I am tied "to no Party, and my Platform is one of independence; striving for good Legislation in the interests of your District. Yours faithfully, J. McLEAN, a Chinaman, 1 will never appear in public in .Lothbridge again. Tho Lib oral enumerators prepared the voters' lints in tho recent election in 1908 und Mr. Ives frequently criticized them. But no Chinaman got on tho voters' list and only one, Joe Jj'omr. sworo in his vote. A Conservative lawyer does his busi- ness. He was never in my' office. (Mr. is the Conservative Professional etiquette prevents me from mentioning his name. Go to Joe Fong, he will tell you. 1 have no Chinese customers in my ollice. 1 am today emploved by the Attorney-General to prosecute this same Jim Jack mentioned in News. I appeared in Police Court conducting this case ag- ainst his partner Hong Lee. 1 am certain of getting a conviction for illegally keeping liquor if possible. I say the individual who published this j miserable paragraph lied and he knows he lied. 1 have seen China- men taking an oath and 1 am con- vinced that when they swear allesr- iance to His Majesty, King Edward VII., they do not care a snap of I their fingers do not under-! stand or the obligations and as a commissioner, I have per- sistently refused to administer it to them. THE JLANDS QUESTION ...Mr. Ives': deserves credit for beinc so bold as to resurrect the dead is- sue of our lands, minerals and water rights, as not another opposition cau didate in the province even refers to it or tries to make it an issue. Did Mr. Ives go to the Conservative con- vention at Red Deer to formulate an opposition platform. (Mr." Ives. "I have copies of resolutions of the Red Deer Convention and it was includ- .Mr. Simmons, "The Red Deer Con- servatives were not bold enough to issue a platform, but waited to see what the government would announce and appointed a committee with Sen ator 'Lougheed, corporation lawyer, chairman to polish up a platform as soon as the government announced their railway policy. SCHOOL LANDS Our school lands are vested in and are. and always were under our Do- minion Lands Act, the property of the province and by the same Stat- ute the Dominion must administer them for the province by paying interest yearly on the proceeds of all sales which must be by public auc- tion and setting the capital as a spe- cial fund belonging to the province. The only question, then is the admin-, istration. Surely Mr. lyes does not.' advocate the eating up of the capital account. I am satisfied to have administration of these transferred to the province if we have a .euaran-: tee that Premier Rutherford will: have the administration of them but if these men. who want to have their; cake and eat it are to have the con-j trol of these school funds we would has caught tbe eye of the drtMcri.

That poor old decrepit, worn out. cry that we have been robbed of our lands, crumbles and falls to pieces as soon as .it is touched. The Domin- ion is paying more for the adminis- tration of our lands than they are getting in revenue. Why? Because our Conservative friends in bygone davs pasted the checker board pattern of railwa- .grants to the A. R. I.. C, P. R. and C. E. and left only even numbered sections so that when tbe homesteaders want to pre-empt there is no adjoining section for him. Mr- McCarthy, M- P.. of Calgary, was forced to admit that the Dominion Las paid. more lor administering our lands than they get in revenue. Frank Oliver preserved our coal lands by preventing sale of any of them and providing the lease of the same to anyone who will work them at a low rental, thus preserving the her- itage of the people, but incurring1 un- popularity from the speculators. Mr. Ives' chief argument that he should, be sent fco Edmonton to criticize falls down because of his incompe- tence. His statements regarding pro vinciul not being compelled, enter cities and towns shows that, he has not even read the provinciaj Railway Act of the Rutherford Gov- ernment of 1907. {Silence Irom Mr. Ives and ao- plause from the audience.)
