It is a difficult matter as the prov- ince is an agricultural province and the members cannot understand the workiflgmen's condition. The govern- ment had been .twitted with' passing the legislation for the sake of catch- the votes of the workingmen. But such was not the cose.

It is a question for the country to decide whether the managers of the business of this country have been successful or not during their term of office. Has the run at t, profit? Previous to 1896, the Conservative party and their National Policy has been on trial for eighteen years but had proved a failure and the country was in a condition of stagnation. Sir Charles Tupper in the early days of the Conservative rule had said that it was necessary to have immigration to the country and in 1892 had expressed his disap- pointment at the result of the'-gov- ernment's policy. The management of the Department of the Interior had been condemned by the late Nicholas Flood Davjn. the Conservative mem- ber for Assininoia. More by far were leaving the country than were coming to it. In 1896 about came to the country and last year over came. This show ed conclusively that the present gcv ernment knew better how to build the population of the country. Wast was the same then, as now, the government got people to and when they came tbey stayed.

At the r.lose of his speech one of the labor men asked Him what he con- sidered .a fair wtqge and spoke of 1 he- city council who after inserting; fair wage clause in its recent con- tracts afterwards admitted that it did not know what it meant and said that it was up to the union, men to see that it was carried out.

The chairman said that he thought that the labor men should take into consideration that their position dur- ing the past twelve years had been better than ever it was that as the Liberal policy had so improved their condition tbey could believe that their conditions would get still better if that policy, were continued. Mr. Gushing stated that, the mat- ter of the school hook contract wa-s outside of his department and he knew very little of it.
