If the Laurier Govornmonl adheres
to clause 1 of the bill tu amend the
Dominion Election Act, tlie purlin-,
mentary struggle which began on
Tuesday of this week will be in prog-,
i six mouths hence. Tbe Opposi I
tion has carefully considered the
question      nnd    lias      reached       the
nclusion that it would be
treason to the rights and
liberties of the people, and to representative govornmont if this attempt
to prevent fair and honest elections
in some thirty constituencies should
ucceed. Tbe proposed mensure,
which practically authorizes the stuffing of the lists, or wholesale disfranchisement, according to the local
party requirements, is n more safe
nnd cowardly method than the devices of switching und stalling ballots, importing persona tors, manufacturing trick ballot boxes und similar schemes which have now been
found dangerous In provinces where
the Liberal 'machine doos not control
the department of justice. But it
accomplishes the sume purpose, at
little expense, with less peril nnd
with more absolute certainty of success. It is, invented by the sume
machine, introduced by tbe minister
to  whom  the  previous     conspirators
we so much, uud supported by those
baser elements which have brought
the Liberal party into Its present
position of disgrace. tf the mensure should be adopted it will be operated by tbe class of officials of
which Leach, Preston, Wagner, Mo-
berly and Nixon are samples, and of
whom Mr. Pritchett, "Cap." Sullivan und such persons have been advisers and instructors.
Tied to a "Reform" Measure.
With unparnlled imprudence, added
to hyprocrlsy, Mr. Aylesworth hus
attached this scandalous clauso to
what professes to lie a mensure
amending the election law against
corruption and truud. The Ayfes-
worth bill, us Mr. Boyce points out,
is better described us u mensure for
the promotion of fraud and corruption, und tlie minister devoted nine-
tenths of bis speech to a defense of
the Infamous clause which is the
main purpose of the bill. Tbe pro
visions against bribery and fraud are
much weaker than those of the bill
introduced liy Mr. Alcorn on the
Conservative side, and even these
lew wholesome provisions are tied to
the main clause, so thut the Opposi
tion can only secure this much elec
tiou reform by giving tbe Government power to steal a dozen more
seats which otherwise they could not
hope to curry.
The   Meaning uf It.
What is this clause which thu Opposition are fighting? It is simply
a provision giving the Govornmont
power to step in after the election
writs are issued, and prepare new
electoral lists for the whole of British Columbia, the whole of Manitoba
und ull those parts of Ontario and
Quebec which are not organized into
municipalities. British Columbia
and Manitoba have complete and
thorough registration systems. The
unorganized und outlying districts of
Ontario and Quebec are amply provided for by the provincial franchise
law. Su fur ns Quebec is concerned,
the chief effect of tlie measure would
probably be to allow the Dominion
authorities to make voters' lists of
miscellaneous railway laborors along
the Hue of the Transcontinental nnd
attach thom to certain constituencies, The ellect in Ontario, Mnuito-
bu uml British Columbin will be to
enable the machine to create ubso-
lutely new lists, to do It ut the lust
moment, to shut out all elective
appeal and all publicity, and so to
carry out under form of law that,
process of sent stealing which wns
perfuriued contrary to law by the
"thin red line" crime of 1904. It
would do more easily what was accomplished by tbe Loudon conspiracy of 11105, by the Brockvllle and
Huron steals of lKK'.l, by the St.
.lames, Montreal, plot of 1903, and
wus attempted by the trick ballot
boxes lu Hustings and Fnuitenac
four years ago,
Vicious on its Face.
Mr. Aylesworth points out that
the Conservative party is committed
to federal control of federal franchises, while be admits thut bis own
party is committed to provincial
control. Much system lias its merits if honestly pursued, and each
might be honestly advocated, But.
there is no merit, and no honest purpose in a method which retains
provincial control In provinces where
the Laurier party dominates und imposes federal control of tbe frail
cbises in Conservative provinces.
The Aylottworth bill does not touch
the Maritime Provinces, it does not
touch Queboc except probably in the
Transcontinental Railway belt. it
dues not t rouble Saskatchewan,
which are under Grit, rule. Rut for
Dominion elections it aufliuiizes ab
solute control of the franchlso in tlie
two   Conservative    provinces of the
west and of a large part, of Ontario.
What the Bill Does.
The bill provides that in the provinces concerned "voters' lists shall
be prepared Immediately after the
issue of any writ for an election, or
nt any time when the Governor in
Council so direct; and for the purpose uf preparing and    giving effect
to such voters' lists tho Governor-ln-
cuiiucil may appoint nil necessary
ollicers iiiui conter upon them all
necessary powers," and tlmt "uo
person whose name is not Included
in the voters' list, as prepared and
revised shall lie entitled (u vote."
The measure professes to adopt the
provincial franchise system and
met bods, and to take the provincial
lists for a basis, but it freely authorizes the Dominion officers appointed for that purpose to strike
out or add names to any extent, and
thus gives complete power to make a
new list. There is no condition requiring appeal tit judges, no restriction upon tlie powers of tlie federal
officers, no qualifications for appoint
ment to these positions, nothing to
prevent tbe Government turning over
the whole business to a political
committee of Cap. Sullivan, Leaches
and   Muberleys.
A False Excuse.
The only   excuse for this Intervention   is  the  fact   that      constituencies
in Manitoba mul British Columblu
sometimes cross tbe boundaries of
Dominion constituencies requiring the
rearrangement of names, it is true
that this happens elsewhere than in
these provinces, Imt the Government
does not mind that. It is true that
this little difficulty could easily be
met liy tbe appointment of a judge
in the locality to assign tbe voters
to their proper polls. Tt is true
that the worst offences in the "red
line" crime of 1904 happened in dis
tricts where these broken boundaries
did not occur, ami where there was
no excuse fur the wholesale disfranchisement. It is also true tbat Mr.
Dorden and the Manitoba Conservatives have declared their willingness
to accept n measure which will meet
tiie difficulty about boundaries without interfering with the provincial
control of franchises. They are wil
FTng tbat Mr. Aylesworth shall accomplish all that he pretends to desire if be will be content with tbat.
The Real  Intent.
But Mr. Aylesworth and his Mani
tuba supporters have shown clearly
that the overlapping of boundaries
is not their trouble. They hnve at
tacked the Manitoba Govornmont and
its control ot the franchise, They
have read in the House ulfidnvitts,
proved to have heen bought ami paid
lor, to show thut Manitoba provln
cial lists were unfair. Their Gali
ciaa affidavit maker has served a
term in .mil. and is entitled l.o
another one. It is established tbal
Manitoba bus a franchise system as
tree, registration as fair, ami lists
as near perfect as enn be found anywhere in Cunadu. According to Liberal doctrine the provincial govern
incuts havo a right to control the
franchise for Dominion elections in
that province, nnd while n Grit government wus there that right was
never questioned as to British ( o
lumliia until tlie Conservatives obtained control thoro. It will never
ie questioned us to Alberta and Saskatchewan while they are governed
hy tlie Grit machine.
it is a Conspiracy.
The Aylesworth  bill  is     as clear a
isc of political conspiracy as the
London election crime. A similar
mensure wns proposed beforo the
lection of 1904. Mr. Sifton, who
athered it, told his followers iu
Manitoba ut revision time thnt they
need not trouble ubout the election
list, as the authorities at Ottawa
Would attend tu that. The present
Ohiof Justice Flti-putrick was then
Minister of Justice, and it is understood that     be absolutely  refused to
notion this plot. So the Siltun
bill was not introduced, and t la-
western boss authorized bis organizers and roturnlng officers to mutl-
late the lists without legal million
ty. Many ollicers found themselves
ill the criminal courts in consequence
and others were greatly shamed. Mr
Aylesworth confesses that bis pres
ent bill is made necessary by the
fact that the ollicers will nut take
any mure such risks. Mr. Bordon,
Mr. Alcorn, Mr. Boyce, Mr. Monk,
Dr. Roche, Mr. Lake nnd others
hnve exposed fully the facts above
set forth. They have made it clear
ly understood tlmt they nre willing
to assist in providing a remedy for
every wrong, and they hnve made it
equally clear that the opposition
will  resist,   by every   constitutional
means, this proposed legislative
crime.
Another Boss Rille Contract.

learned, after ninny evasive replies

Ross has inudi! ti contract with flic

Happy Walberg.
A. C. Walberg has the run ot the
Railway Department, as Wilson ami
Merwin have of the Department ot
Marine, aud Burrows of the interior.
Chiel Engineer Mackenzie ol the intercolonial testified oa Thursday
lhat Walberg had eleven contracts
now running with that road Mosl
ol t hem -ire iu whole or in pari on
private terms. For inst ami-, tin
railway required some 15 tons ol
steel girders for Truro. The oflleei
stnteil liml they were all tn,, hUBJ
lo   provide   lhe   -nods  ami   so   la-  did
ma ask one oi them. The rtoparl
ment bought the     girdors from Wnl
hern   privately   at    P.   cents   a   pound,
and Wulberg immediately turned over
lhe    order at       less  than  3      cents  ,,
pound to thi> Dominion Bridge Com
pany ol Montreal, This concern was
not   ton  busy    to lill   it,   ami      Wutlhl
have sold to the tlovernmeni at the
lame    price.    Here     is the llnanctul
esult:
Walberg  paid   $9ll,on
The Government
paid    1,114.Sll
Walberg's   profit., 503.80   or 55 per
cut.
Great Bargains.
The Chief Engineer testified that
he thought he got the steel cheap ut
■U cents, when tbe market price was
three cents.     He has Walberg engug-
,1 carry inu on miscellaneous construction work  ut  Moncton by  spec
a I arrangement under which Wal
here; hires the men and the Govern
merit pays him 15 per cent, over tbe
cost, or $22.50 per day commission.
The Intercolonial officers, who tes
tify that li cents is cheap for three
cent steel, that $45,400 is a low
price for land in Halifax Just bought
in the open market at Moncton nt
$5,075 is a great bnreain a few days
afterwards for $13,880, belongs to
the same combination with Commls
sinner Young of the Transcontincn
tal, who swore this week thut be bad
made a tine bargain for the country
when he paid $222,1101) for land a'
Winnipeg a short time before on
credit for $99,000. All tbe depart
ments of the Government ure making
such splendid bargains every day.
There has never been a deal or a
steal in department history which
the Government was not able to ile
fend by the evidence of its officers.
It wns easy to find an official to tes
tify thut $900 wus a reasonable price
inr a $335 Sturtevnnt engine.

this Seal ol Certainty when huying.
IJThe salesman who tells you different, wants
to sell you different shoes; his shoes may
not  be any  more reliable than his word.
fl Slater Shoes at $5.00 carry a larger profit

A Legislative Conspiracy.
A SLOW   ENQUIRY.
Continued from page 1.
Judge Cftssels began Chief Couusel
Watson's enquiry, last Saturday, and
adjourned fur a fortnight, Thu sitting
was long enough to show that tin- ao-
uompllshed uud experienced wbite-
washer, Me. Watson, will determine the
lino of Investigation and decide who
shall bo Investigated. Ho began by
bringing up Comini.-sioinM-s Fysho and
Ma/in and demanding to know what
ihey meant and whom they meant by
their ohargos of "lack of uousolence,"
To Mr. Watson's stern niiostions the
I'ouiniis-siuiiers merely replied that they
did not pru]iosu to act as detectives tu a
new commission. Asked by the judge
aud Mr. Watson whether thoy ivali/.i-d
the position of disgrace in whieh they
hail placod tin; responsible ofllcOfB of
the Marine I apartment Mr. Fysho
stilted that it wae the department itst-lf
and the facts whieh brought ubout tlie
position. So lhe ease stuniU over, the
former commissioners declaring tbal
they stand by overy word or their report.
CONCERNING PADDED
ACCOUNTS.
Enquiry by a speeial committee of
live members wus started on Friday In
to the charges mado by Major Hodgson
that the contractors' schedule of work
on tho Transcontinental hud been so
padded as to cause a loss or millions to
the country. The minority members
of the committee are Messrs. Marker
and Lennox. The majority ure Messrs.
GeotTrlon, Maedonald and Carvill, ull
skilled and experienced obstructors.
Mr, Muedonald takes the ground that
it is not the business of the committee
to Und out whether padding of the accounts is aetuully taking place, but
only whether Major flodgins hus personal knowledge of such proceedings.
The country is probably inure concerned
to know whether these millions are Improperly paid than to Had out about
Major Ilodgihs' knowledge. But why
should not the enquiry cover both?
OUT OF MONEY.
The question of supply is urgent. In
March the Government took an interim
vote to cover one-eighth of ihe fiscal
year beginning April lirst, That period
is nearly completed, und tbe ministers
liuve no money to pay the May bills.
It is not a good time for the Government to force on the Opposition n
measure to swindle the Conservatives
nut of the western seats, which are
otherwise coming to them.
MORE BALLOTS LOST.
The by-election of Stanstead Quebec,
held a few months ago, resulting In a
Government Victory, has been protested. Corruption and other ottenees
are charged, ln tho course of proceedings it was necessary to produce In
court the poll books aud other records
of the election. Search has been made
in the Ottawa otlice where thoy ought
to be. but no sign of them is there.
The former eiistodian was the clerk in
chancery, an ollleer who died recently.
Some suggest that he burned tbe papers
by mistake. Others believe tlmt ho
mislaid them. It is also observed that
be was not the only person with uecess
to the documents. Others knew thut
the StwiBtend trial was coming.
Tlie fact is recalled thut when
it was found necessary to
trace the West Elgin election steal
there was a disuppearanee uf ballots
from the Koss Government office whore
they belonged. It wus at length ad-
itted that this valuable evidence luul
been burned -of course by mistake.
MR. FL'GSLEY'S RECOUD,
There is genuine pity for the New
Brunswick deputy minister who took
his life rather than face the shame oi
having  draw a   largely    from    public
funds fop  bis  own   use.    Tins  pity   i**
■  mixed with wonder iimi  former ministers of that province should have es-
*! tablished a system under which their
' deputies could keep pursuttal and pub-
|llcaccouuts ml' l aud should be aide
io withdraw iudeflnitu amount* of public money. As tlie former provincial
secretary and attorney general of Now
Brunswick under whom these systems
developed is now in charge of the second largest spending department at
Ottawa, his record as an administrator
is in point. This i- tho more interest-
tug lu view of the annouucumunl by
Provincial Secretary Fiom m ing of
New Brunswick thut ul the end of
October lust the buspense account of
the province conUilu-xl the record of un
overdraft of Mr. Pugsluy of $4,331.(14 on
