The question is Kkely to be a lively one a 1.1 Iv? raj as- sembly 'when 'it meets in June. by Masterly Speed at Ottawa Ottawa, Ont., March The Hon. Clifford Sifton, ex-minister of the in- terior in one. of the most btatcsman- like utterances ever delivered in the Canadian Parliament, dealt this af- ternoon Jn an hour's speech with great problems and suggest- ed reforms, the adoption of which would mean much for the, Canadian people. If it will have the effect of Parliament devoting more time to such questions instead of carping about what was said and done twenty years ago, it will have served, a good purpose. As Mr. Sifton vput. he was more "concerned could be done -now, or in the "future than with the past, Mr. Sifton's- strong advocacy 'of the Hudson's Bay route -was to be looked for. He has always stood firm- ly by that proposition, and his .sug- gestion that the undertaking be built by the people as outlined in this speech, has been well received here. In takmg this Mr. Sifton does not pretend to be an advocate of government ownership. On the con- trary not believe 'in taking over works by government which are beFng better managed by private companies. Another important subject discussed by the ex-minibter of the interior was civil service reform which sooner or later must be facsd. Tfiere is nothing more annoying to the representatives of the people than political patron- age. Instead o! being a source of strength to the supporters of ,the gov- ernment it is a source That has been the" experience of all Jf A r Sifton tion wilt te well received.
