T. Gait, and afterwards and until the present time managed by his son, T..E. Gait. Mr. Magrath assumes the pose of an Independent Conservative, and while professing of fair- ness as between the parties, does not hesitate to avail himself of the Con- servative campaign literature, and of'the aid of platform speakers, who repeat the slan- ders" sthat have-bc-en conjured up in the course of-the last three sessions of' and added to -during U present campaign, as fancy may dictate, in order to discredit-the Lib- eral Government and tfceir candidate in -that Mr. C.

Dunmore, and with thc Great Nor- Tails, Montana. As was the custom at that time, the railway was bonused by a lane grant. As it was of narrow gauge the railway was only acres per mile, instead of the usual which was given the standard guago roads The land was selected in the countrj surrounding and wa chosen with a view to its possibilitic for farming. As thc company had th right of selection in solid township tlioy chose their townships wherever the land seemed to be most fit" for the raising of crops; therefore, the townships were scattered throughout the-large part of Southern Alberta. During the whola period of Conser- vative rxile, the Gait Company kept up a life and death struggle. The Canadian West did not offer a suf- ncent market, for .the products of the mines and was difficult of access to the markets of the United States. Besides, the fact that the coal had to- be transshipped from the narrow cst cf the public, and for the merit of the .agreed to it, and he company proceeded to operate un- der the agreement, by bringing wa- .erfrom Milk by extending their irrigation system, leading 'from the St. Mary's river, and already con- structed, to supply this additional tract. This transaction occurred some time before the general elections of :1904. and the attitude "of the company not- withstanding its Conservative tradi- tions was again that of friendly rality towards the candidate o! the Liberal government. Although the company had secured an agreement for the grant on irri- gation conditions of this half million acre tract, they have not pushed the work of irrigation as tapidly aa the Government hod reason-to expect at the time the agreement was made.

The; public ca n j udge fairly by this instance 'how the cry of -graft has arisen. Had the Government been dishonest in its administration of-the public domain, had it administered the public reaources, sa it ia accused of doing, it would have been a simple matter to have closed the mouths of everj' one of its accusers by giving them a slice of the ham; as was the practice in the good old Conserva- tive when, if cither friend or enemy shouted too loud, he wag given a slice oft the North West, either in land or timber, coal or grazing leas- es as his fancy might dictate. Mr. Magrath's company undc-r Mr. Magrath's direction failed to loot the public domain to the amount of a million acres from, the Liberal Gov- ernment.
