Stewart Enunciates Government Policies (CONTINUED rapir FRONT pofee first, BDd made It plain lat he was one. Liberal but not lie liad made up bis Mr. Stewart had attacked said Ihe Ihe opposition expenditure OQ position loo. Campaign of misrertreaema- mind never lo appear on tbe political latlorm again, but when Tie had seen ,nd read the campaign of falsehood nd slander the opposition had anncbed ID connection vrllh the sold- ers vole and the alien vole, he felt hat'it was his duly lo give the ad- alDlEtratipn ihe benefit of what hum- ile services he could render. "This said Mr. "has :ome mighty close lo all of .us. Our .etTls have bean LoucUed by the sac- jllccs made by our brava boys at he front. These sentiments have i become as somelhing very sacred to us and Tvhen we see these sentiments used dishonorably for political cap- la I, 'we feel our indignation, getting Lhe belter of us.1, The.opposlllon bare Eaid thatHhe soldiers have been dia- lanchUed. But 'what about Ihs pol- cy of soldiers Tole thtr advocated, and which had already been tried by he Dominion government. Sir Rob- ert Borden said in the house of com- mons that this method (Ibe one now being advocated by the Tories) would absolutely disfranchise the soldiers, hat it was absolutely infeasible. But .ha policy adopted by the Sitlon gov- ernment gives every soldier al Uic ionl representation. The question in Ihe present, cara- J.EQ was, said Mr. Wlttfe, whether and In the nplcndld and humane administration of Ihe provincial jails and Ihe asy- lum. Liberty of the people was fully recognized In the direct legislation act, .Mr. Clarrlner, lo'.roduclng .Mr. Slew- art, paid a hlgli compliment to minuter of public works, as a man of Inlcgrily, and mcnlfoncd the fact thai never during Mr. Hloffart'B regime had there been Ihe allghlesl charge of any kind lalil against his depart- ment. Mr. Stewart, Mr. Steirarl.. after ridiculing the opposition campaign ot slander and misrepresentation, launched Inlo an of government pollclfa. He said that Ihe government was not being criticised for lack of policy, there was no criticism of its leglsla- llon whatever. This was a. maltcr (or congratulation, the government Icgiii- IflMon harl even octn commended by Hie opposition In Iho houee. llul the opposlllon lied no policy, roads. He said he had never hid his light under a bushel ou this matler, and pains lo tell the people ei- aclly where the government slood. There was no one more anxious than he to provide good roads for the peo- ple. The opposition deplored' the large public debt aud the laics the people had lo pay; but Mr. Stewart the opposition lo Bhow any province "or state in the union, where taxation was lighter or the burden less- Tuere were Iwo-. sources of direct axalion Mr.'-Stewart explained, Ihe chool taxes and the local improvc- menl taxes. These were tbe only two ivstcms direct- taxation, 'and the .evenue from Inese'-lwo taxes wag controlled In the'Immediate dlst'1- and.not by government except ,nder acls governing the schools and mprovetneut districts. In Saskalchcwan surtax was charged on every'a'cre- In .Manitoba each Judicial district wai' required to provide Its' own public court house, and other buildings.' Uul in Alberta these buildings were provided out ot the general revenues of the prov- nce, and the taxation indirect, lo raise these revenues, was spread over all Ihe people in Lhe province. In comparing tbe debt oC Manitoba and Alberta Ihe cost, of these judicial buildings should be added to .the lolal dcbl of Manitoba, and this, Ihe opposition was nol-'doing, which was not talr, Mr. Stewart explained that the pro; vinclai legislature and goTernment assumed largely Ihe dulles of the county administrations In the older provinces, and therefore bad to rajse revenues necessary to cover "expendi- tures which otherwise would have lo be raised by council administrations Iri their own particular districts if they existed. The opposition had criticised the theatre tax and Ihe aulo lax and the wild land and unearned Increment lax. These were Indirect and necessary'for revenue-willed was he had already necessary. The cllles liad applied for a return of the government took, but Iheso fines were used largely lo iiay Ibe magistrates In the citie'i, and was hoped also to evolve a3 scheme ol stipendiary magistrates in Ihe smaller places- No ooe would criticize the .govern menl for laklng Lhe- auto which provided a fund whereby the roaia o Ihe province were maintained. Thi cllles had demanded the refund o licenses Ihey paid on muclcipal cars but 11 waa pointed out lo them.ttu If the licenses were refunded lo municipalities all round, and then the municipalities asked to .sdralnisle their own road maintenance, it wouli be a dIHcrent mailer, ati'l the cltle agreed. Wild Land Tax. Th? u-UA land lax and Ihe unearnei Increment tax were emlnenlly fa] atid democratic, nlnce Ihey mere) look for the people what really be longed lo them. It was unfair to th settler who came in and did lh5lble to lake the soldiers vote at ;he front, the bad the only oilier thing possible ;to give tli'em representation and bad given them the right to two representatives In whlcri with ihe 11 mem- bers already' In khaki would give the soldiers. 13 representatives in the House.-' Mr. Slewarl said he had had letters from the late Lieut. Slajjffcr, who had been recently killed In acllon. Ueut.
