The .Conservatives of Manitoba re- ply: We wiil not have the lists pre- pared by the partisan otticials of your friends, the Liberal Government of the Dominion. If lists prepared by the Province are used, the Liberals of Manitoba will be dissatisfied. If the lists pre- pared by the Dominion officials are used, the Conservatives of Manitoba will dissatisfied. The remedy for the situation, said Sir Wilfrid Laurii-r ,i.s to take the matter entirely out of the hands of eiiuei pui'iy, H.UU I'-i. the lists be whol- ly prepared by the judiciary. This the Government proposes to do, and we invite the Opposition to help us so to amend the Dominion Elections Bill as to enable us to satisfy botii pasties. W. J.

He there registered 33 duly qualified electors; but. when the lists were taken to the Attorney General's office, those names were contemptuously torn out of the lists. It is true, their registration was illegal, according to the law of Manitoba, but it was oa'y in accord with natural justice that they should have boon allowed to remain on the lists. Should such a law be upheld, when it is within the power of the Dominion Government to prevent such injustices? I propose mi independent preparation of the lists in Manitoba, British Columbia, and the unorganized districts of On- tario and Quebec and that basis of independence which is to be founci in tiie municipal origin of the lists in organized districts of those Provinces and in Xova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island Alberta, and Saskatchewan, will then become eomon to the lists in Manito- ba and British Columbia. Apart from these considerations, the Government was obliged to bring in a bill to provide tiie machinery to distribute the voters on the Provin- cial lists among the Dominion con- stituencies. The boundaries of the Dominion constituencies cut through provincial polling divisions. The vot ers on Provincial lists for such divisions have to be carefully separ- deelured the voters into their'that in tiie whole division of siitiu'iirtieK; H.IK! tho'quytte Conservative rotors were polling stations huve to be so arrang- disfranchised. ed conform to the shape and Reply: The Cons rvative votea of the-constituencies and with an eye! polled in the Dominion election of to Die convenience of voters in out-of-; exc ed.-d the Conservative votes the-way places; and, there'polled ii the ProvincitI el ctions of READY FOR SERVICE las to be classification within the constituencies themselves, so that the lists shai conform to.the Domin- ion polling divisions.
