Sir Wilfrid Uuirier is' willing to bring down a bill for that; purpose, but he cannot do so until the Opposition ceases obstruction and ullow the public business to proceed. The Conservatives will not gain any votes in Manitoba by preventing the introduction of this bill, on the con- trary they are likely to show their disapprobation by voting against the1 Party guilty of causing delay. One thing, however, the country will r.ot forget, that is that Sir Wil- frid Laurier was quite willing that the lists in Manitoba should be prepared under judicial authority, which would ho n decider! improve- ment upon the present system, which places the preparation of these lists m the hands of partisans appointed by the Conservative government of; Manitoba, and this of is a fruit- ful source of much of the trouble S has resulted.
