During; the debute on the motion of Mr. Ames, of St. Antoine diviiv ion of Montreal to condemn the government for the issue and disposal' of tho Brown lease Mr. Oliver spoke a� follows: lion. Frank Oliver (Minister of tile' Interior). .The resolution befd/re the House Is divided into two parts, if I remember it correctly, the. flfit condemning the action of the Depart -inmit of the Interior, in the granting of llio I lino, and the other condemn- ' Ing, 1 presume, the grantee for having disposed of the lease. The one Is an attack upon the department ' and the other an attack on a member of this House. It is -my concern, at the moment, to deal with the question oh It. relates In the depart -mcnt. I wus very much Interested in the presentation of the case made by tho lion, member for Alberta (Mr. Herron) in lilch he depleted- to tho " House the happy conditions In connection with the ranching business generally which prevailed In tfie Northvost under the administration of the Into government. Ono woufd suppose from his telling of the story nil the troti'Ij Ijogan with the' secession to power of the Grit government.

And, in this connection let me Just say that when hon. members on the other side complain, as they have frequently complained, of the tendency of this government to eoncen trute arbitrary power In of the Minister of the Interior, the fact should not be overlooked that mmmmmmimmmmmm wfcisb t 41*. ft* h*�h*tK�t* m*� latloim wai�*, .would give a brgath � lag *pa*�, am It wero+-wonld glv* tttna (or the department to And out what part cf the country wa� absolutely tout tor- agriculture and what part of It was At.

These regu-  IntionA or December 23, 1881. were eo popular and so generally approved that we find by order of council of April 11, 1882, that some two and a hall million acres hud been nppliud for as grazing lands up to that time. Thu quantity of lundthai was going to be alienated for twenty-one years under this order in coun cil of 1881. 1 imagine, rather staggered the government of the day, for they decided that it wan not advisable to continue that policy. Tbey framed regulations dated April 11, 1883. which proved that lenses could lie cancelled on two years' notice. In March, 188(1, another change waa made, and the ront was incroasod to two cents un acre. In April. 1887. I It was decided to invite public competition in the issue of lcnsos, with the exception of eight cases which are mentioned. I merely drnw attention to tho fact that there was exceptional consideration in tho so days, as there has lieun in these>-l only hope that the reasons were as good in those dny.s as they have been in these. In September, 1880, other regulations were issuod providing that leases should bo oponod to homeateadlug or purchases unless oth-erviso provided in tho loase. That is to say tho government had the authority under those regulations to grant u closed lease or an open louse, ns they might see fit. Mr. A. ('. Mucdonull-Would the hon. minister please mention the year. Mr. Oliver-This was in Soptcmbor 1889, I can let thu hon. mcmlierhavo the order in council if he would Itko to havo it. Now, tho ranching business had run on in a way thut as my hon. friend from Allwrta (Mr. Her' ron) mentioned today, was not altogether satisfactory. In October, 1802, notice was issued to all and sundry tho loaso holders in tho country that on December 31, 1890,their leases would be Anally cancollod, but preliminary to that thoy would bo permitted to purchase ten per cent, of their leaso holdings at 92 an acre. Incidently it was montioned thatthia course was taken for tho reason, among others, that the land that, had already been given to the loa*e -holder* was now required for railway* under railway land grants. In February, 1808, an order waa T>e***d latloim wUro auapended In these regulation* whteh did not die-criminate " between good land andf bad-the Brown application" *waa made, and 'the "MeOregor nnd Hitch*1-cock applieatlona were rnadei"- Thcee application* werh baaed on the 'allegation that, *� the land wppHea the hand* \f�r w** uaflt for agricultural' P�r-poaee, It who right and proper thah they ' should ba cloaad lea***-- that homes tending should not be pennltt-od upon them. The government recognized the - propriety of granting closed loan**' under auch circumstances, provided the circumstances were thoroughly established. Several mam* bvrs who are familiar with the conditions in the woat have epokea tonight, und I thrnk 1 can include" the h n. member for Alberta (Mr. Jler ron) in that number, who agreethat wherever the conditions were auch that the land was not suitable for agricultural purposes then it right and proper that it should' be granted under closed lease regulat  Ions for the grazing-of cattle. It waa on that principle and In that belief, and under those circumstances that an order in council was passed grant ing closed leases to H.P. Brown.

As soon as the provisions for closed leases wer* passed in February, 1005, at once the deportment waa flooded with applications for such lease*, and 1' found it absolutely Impossible t6 administer that regulation according to its intont. That is to *s~y, we had so many applications *nd they covered so much of'the country that we had no means of making a proper discrimination between the agricultural land and th* land that waa purely gracing. I found that w, could not make that dia'tinction'.
