Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 7, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta HON. FRANK OLIVER DELIVERS FINE SPEECH Continued From the Previous Page The letter was directed to Messrs. Prince Bros., operating lumbermen of Baitleford. If we are accused of selling timber limits too cheaply, I am sure accusation does not lie in the mouths of those who only two years before sold a timber limit of 34 square miles for the magnificent sum of ten dollars, for which they had been bid only (Laughter.) Fres From Pull We do not want to be accused of political pull in handling the re- sources of the country, and I wish to point out that one of the reasons why the Liberal government has suc- ceeded in its administration oiv West- ern lands and timber and mineral areas, is because it has been free from poltical pull. has been a square deal for the man who is ready to do business on the condition On which the property was offered to him. But this is the sort of thing j our opponents used to practice. I hava a letter from the files of the de- partment. It is addressed to H. H. Cook, of Toronto, and dated May 11, men and that we will consider th.'S question from a patriotic, as well as a selfish standpoint. There is a dan- ger that we may consider that it does not matter whether this or that can- didate is elected, the Government will he el: cted anyway. Now, let me point out to you that a government receives its strength only as the people give it to them, that the government is strong if it has a large majority eo In reply to the question I would say that the Liberal Government has never made a present of land to any man in the country, nor have we un- dertaken to do so. We found it ne- cessary to dfyil with the Question of the disposition of formerly reserved odd numbered sections throughout the country. You are aware that in 1881 the Conservative Government made a grant to the land tuv ca-iuiuau: is strong in like manner to promote the building of the rail- road, reserving all odd-numbered sec- tions in the three provinces, for the purpose of being handed over for rail- j xvay operations in consideration if he gets a large majority. Now the Liberal Government has been able to do great things in Can- ada, during the past twelve years. It has been able to cany out a careful policy of development which has re- sulted 'as all good Canadians desire that it result. Let me point out to on that was not possible for Liberal government or any other gov- ernment to do this without the en- dorsation of a large majority of the people of the country, that if you want a good government you must have a strong government. There is no good government that is a weak BOVRIL in the Home. It enables you to prepare tally meat to re-serve cold meat and vegetables in a pal- atable and wholesome form.
