Higinbotham, poitmas- ter at Lethbridge. He laid that this dUmllsal had amused feelings of- resentment- in Lethbridge dis- trict among the people. Mr. Hlginbotham had been a faithful servant from 1889 to 1914. As proof of the general esteem in which Mr. Higinbotham was held, Mr. Buchanan quoted a resolution of regret passed by the Presby- tery of Macleod. He said his suc- cessor, A. Ripley, when appoint- ed, knew no more about the post- office werk .than a child. Hon. Mr. Casgraln said Mr. Buchanan had dealt with the case with moderation. What he had said about Mr. Higinbotham was perfectly true. As the new min- ister he disclaimed any personal responsibility. The reason for the dismissal was the desire to ap- point a new postmaster. In-conclusion, Mr. Casgrain de- that no postmaster would be retnoved by him, except with good cruise. Eaid that he did not hold Mr. Casnrain responsible, but the government was to blame.
