It is insinuated that Messrs. Cox and Jaffray got posses- sion of huge coal tracts that ought to belong to the people. NO would like to clear this case up. In the first place this coal property was never that of the Canadian people. It belonged to the British Columbia Tory Government, who granted it to the British Columbia South -rn Rail- road Company, which company was never able to build.

"Then the claim is made that we paid the Canadian Pacific Railw.iv mora than would have been paid by Sir Charles Tupper. We paid per mile, in all. What did we get? The building of the road and the development of the country, but held acres of coal lands, which we have today, and by mans of which we are keeping Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company from cornering coal and holding up the Canadian settlers. More than that. Yon recall the bargain with the C. P. R. v.-her -by its rat-s could not be interfered with until ,1 certain time?

For .Vice Colin ;H, Campbell, Uie Attorney-General ot this 'Province is mentioned. Mr.- Campbell-secured from _the Liberal government at Ottawa a few years ago a timber berth fifty square miles in extent. He was' the" highest bid- der, just as Mr. Burrows was the highest bidder in the case .of the Um- ber berths he secured. Every tim- ber berth disposed of by the Liberal Government went to the highest bid- de; after a public call for tenders. A. number of _ Conservatives besides Mr. Campbell thus' secured berths.' But Mr. Campbell 'appears to be the favorite for the yice" of the League. The Ames synonym ior a Liberal" highest tenderer is "Eootrr of the Public Domain. The public sense of justice requires that Con- servative highest too, :be included "jn the of these titles." Then, there is ilr.
