Returning to _he >'ubjeet again,

roy, l'he Mail repeats mi .representa

Mail and Ktnpire says:
'<n fl_is <cas��, as the country
knows _so,oco acres of public land
passed to Mr. Adanrson, M.P., and
atfew comrades at .'fan acre. That
land 'was "so'.d 'dt various prices,
some sections at $6 an acre, some

What would tbe average reader
gather from lhe 'sfbove stat.ment,
made by a inestimably reputable
paper?   He would understand:
1. That the Saskatchewan Valley Land Company bought 250,000
8 acres irom  the country  at $1 an

$2,000,000, netting a profit of fi,-

We are on deck again after an
absence of two weeks on the sick

friends for the expressions of sympathy at our recent illness.
Nothiug has been done, apparently, towards arranging for tbe

such splendid weather prevailing it
seems strange, to us, that active
steps have not been taken towards
arranging for this interesting event.

of Duluth,   Minn., as set forth iu
the order-in-council.
It has been established that Mr.
Adainson, M.P., had nothing to do
with the Department of the Interior
with regard to this transaction, j
Very [Misleading.
The Mail and Empire leads the
public to suppose that the Saskatchewan Valley Land Company
owned merely the 250,000 acres
purchased from the government.
The fact that this company owned
aud paid for 869,000 acres of land
besides had been maliciously concealed for the purpose ot deceiving
the public.
What About tbe Profits?
Before there was a dollar of profit
on the transaction the Saskatchewan
Valley Land Company had to purchase the following and get the
money back and incur #200,000 of
869,000 acres from Qu'-
Appelle & Long Lake
Railway Company, at

Some Shoes look \vtil and wear badly, others look badly

We not ouiy aim nt having the latest styles, but honest

We have All Sizes and Widths and can Fit Any

It wotit do any harm to start dealing here,
Placing the total sales at $2,000,-
000, according; to the Mail and Empire's figures, and deduct the fixed
charges, the profits on ihe transaction dwindle from $1,750,000 to
less than $250,000.
The Mail charsres up the total
profits of the Saskatchewan Company to the 250,000 acres purchased from the government at $1 per
acre, utterly ignoring the other
assets of the company which provided the main profits of the transaction, and w.Tich cost the company
a large amount of money.
The Conservative party seeks to
gain power by disreputable tactics
such as these. Deliberate misrepresentation, aud bold attempts
to mislead the people, fittingly
characterize the action of the Mail
and Empire in its criticism of the
Saskatchewan Valley Land Company.
How About This?
Will the Mail explain to the
people why E. B. Osier, M. P., for
Toronto, refused to accept this very
I ui rl as a bonus Irom the Conservative Government upon the allegation that it was unfit for settlement?
Will the Mail explain why, if the
land were so very valuable, did Mr.
Osier's company agree to take $1
a.re in lieu of it. from the Govern
ment, and why did Mr. Oiler's
company sell the "land to the Saskatchewan Valley Land Company
for $1 50 an acre, if it were worth
so much more?
