LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1915 NUMBER 275 SIR SAM HUGHES RESPONSIBLE FOR CONTRACT FRAUDS SAYS WESTMAN Hefflna, Sank., Nov. verbal war, which hits been going on Eor the last week between General Sir Sam Hughes and J. A. Westnmn, Federal Conservative candidate for Hegina, was brought to a head this morning, when ilio'latter made the following di- rect charges: "I want to make the definite charge that Sam Hughes and officers whom he backed are entirely responsible for frauds and attempted frauds disclos- ed before the Davidson Commission hero, and that his later actions have been dictated by his desire to cover up the inefficiency of which Colonel McFlao and his officers were guilty. "I further charge that Sam Hughes know in March as he knows now that Colonel -McUae and Ms officers were responsible for these frauds, and that he prevented an investigation, which would definitely) place this responsi- bility by the crooked expedient of 'n' vestigating minor wrong-doing. He simply whitewashed McRae and his officers. 1-Jughea allowed and encouraged McRae to start an in- vestigation of his own, which natural- ly was the kind of investigation that McRae. Desired, and nothing more. IJut Sa'ifc Hughes 'never did, for rea- sons of'his own, make any investiga- tion -Into--the methods of Col. McRae and his crooked officials. "Sam Hughes is In the position of j McRae to sell hay to the department backing up1 McRae whan the latter -L .....i gave Mitchell three months to make his after he had confessed ills guilt in the hay frauds. Why was Mitchell allowed to escape? is one matter I would like cleared up. "Why McRae was allowed to super- vise 'all investigation that was made here? Is another. "Why the remount department at Brandon a cheque for to Mitchell on April .15, in face of or- ders not to pay out any money to him? is "Why was .Mitchell permitted by at all when the tender had been awarded to another man? "There are other -matters 1 want cleared up, too, but I will not enum- erate them until I can furnish defin- ite proofs, as I can of all of the fore- going. "It is up to the government now. Let them act." BE RE-INSTATED AT B. of T. ROOMS IN SERB CAMPAIGN Shunting of Canadians to Reserve List in England Needs Explaining says British Newspaper Nov. 4.
