Alberta 1 wish to say a few words in reply to the honorable gentleman from Selkirk Bradbury who would deny the franchise to those of foreign birth who hare been naturaliz ed in His speech put me in mind a speech I heard a good many years ago at a meeting of the boards of trade at A gentleman said that in his opinion we should allow no foreigners in that the should all be Englishmen that1 every man coming into Canada should have a certain am ount of money in his pocket and should be required to pass an ex amination as to his educational abi lities before being He talk ed of the decadent races the the Latin and made a very interesting and somewhat amusing The first answer to him was made by an old friend of who used to be in the Northwest Mounted He said that if he were riot an Englishman he would hardly ven 9 PROHIBIT The Dutch bited Dutch coastal cepted May The government has prohi the sailings of all steamships from Dutch Sailing and fishing craft are ex from the ff DiQCTOR ADVISED OPERATION as the only means of curing1 Lewis of Silver who was suffering from a chronic sore on his The use of made this Lewis daughter says Father had a sore on his which became very swollen and We tried remedy after and he had medical attention from several but he got no finally the doctor said the only hope of a cure was an Father would submit to an opera tJntil he had first tried as he so much about He began applying it and soon felt some lie persevered and gradually the pain was the inflammation was all drawn the swelling disappeared and am j ture to say what he was going to i He asked Of all mongrel iiattons in the world Is there a greater mon grel nation than the EnglishV And he mentioned the various aources from which the English came the Picts Jund the the the Norwegians and the Vik he saidt mltture makes a pretty good I think the Englishman ofc today stands very favorably in comparison with Ihe men jof any other K j The next speaker raid The gentle j man seems to think that no person I should he allowed Canada unless j he has a certain amount money in his I landed in Montreal with an English shflling in my and I will bet which can rife given to charity if I that I canjjuy the I honorablegenMeman and all his fami j stock and I got up make the obserj vation that I thought any man with u pair of hands and willing to use them be no detriment to any country Those men are the class men we dp We must have labor to build our railways and do our I what we do not this country are who come to Canada to live by their wits can breed all of 1 those we want at I I have beenin probably closer touch 1 with the foreigners of Alberta than any other man in this 1 live in a mining Nearly all I our inlners with the exception of a few Nova Scotians and are

been ill now nnd i I soniftimiis had all the foreigners on my hands and have therefore been j continually in their I am speaking altogether of Uie foreigners iu Alberta 1 nothing of thosy in Manitoba and if the statements of nu honorable riend Brad bury are Manitoba must have been very unfortunate u the foreign ers picked out to go These I people came to Canada with little or no They take up a quarter section of 1 have been in Al berta ever since 1882 BO 1 should liavo some experience in the The first thing the foreigners in Al bfciUi do is to buildja cabin out nt wat uml Wattles are the little trees Ihut they cut Tltoy the twigs mud and build selves what they call If are children In the family the girls go out to the winter the man conies to Lethbridge and works in the He saves every cent that he makes to it on the If the girls make any money that money also goes on the farm They buy a then another then a gradually work up until they become fairly comfort I have known them to go so far as to make bricks by hand to build houses for who were to6 lazy to do it The house would buHd would not be very but it woulo be comfortable and The con sequence of the Industry of these people is1 that they can go to almost and fltore and get what credit they want for they pay their bills where I am sorry to a good many of the socalled whites in Alberta do not pay their But the foreign ers do notask for much credit they come with their cash ask for discount for one the chief arguments made by the honorable is that they should not be allowed the franchise because they come from autocratic In name of why did they leave their country They left They have come to Canada to be free from autocratic government and able to do ES I have talked with them timerand time You could not tat any of those men to go back to the country from which they came they are opposed in every possible way to the govern ment of their country of Uradbury Will the hon orable gentleman excuse me for a moment I did not say that people should not be allowed to come to this country because their own country is What I stated was that they should not have the they are not fit for citizenship because they come from that Ue Veber The honorable gentleman made tlie statement that he would deny them the franchise because they had come from an auto cratic i Bradbury They should not have the That is one of the Do Veber The honorable gentleman also iriod to make out tliat none of thosu people would Join our Canadian that is not In 1 have examined numbers of men all those ent men who wished to join the
