Ottawa Letter.
Ottawa, Feb, 1.3.���One side of'
an argument sometimes appears
convincing until the other has been,
The recent attack of the Conservatives 011 the Timber policy of the
present government ba^i been very
generally circulated throughout tbe
country, but the reply made in answer to this attack, by Hon. Clifford Sifton, who was Minister of
the Interior, at 'the time the acts
cemplained of occnrred, has not
been so generally circulated.
Mr. Sifton Always Ready.
A characteristic of the ex-Minister of the interior is, that when
any reflections are made upon the
policy of the department affecting
the period ot time when he was
charged with the administration,
he stands ready to give the fullest
explanation {not to'defend for there
is nothing to defend), bnt Mt. Sifton invariably makes valuable contribution to the debate, which
throws light upon what is ptir-
'poS:lv kept o'bscure by those who1
seek to cloud the issue.
Some time ago a general attack-
����.' made on the administration of
the Interior Department. Mr. Sif-
ton's famous speech, delivered May
31, 1906, in the House, effectively
silenced all criticism and the affair
passed away and was forgotten. In
the present instance after the ex-
minister had spoken there was nothing more to be said, the Opposition
had been effectively answered, end
the House was qnite satisfied to
vote down the resolution.
Speaking ofthe contract between
the administration of timber lands
under the Conservative 'Government, and the administfEtion <under
Liberal ���Govermmont, Mr. Sifton
Liberals Did Their Duty.
"We came irito power in 1896.:
We undertook the dutyof develop-,
ing that western 'Country as it had
not been developed before, and we
performed that duty-. As settle-'
ment progressed, here and there,!
whatever it became necessary we'
disposed ot timber lands. During
its eleven years of administration
this government has disposed of
6,400 miles to satisfy the wants dfa
population of 900.000, What did
our predecessors do? In three years
they disposed of 2t,oqpsquare miles
-of timber lands for the pupose of
satisfying the wants of 'loe.ouo
Mr. Sifton alluded to other matters in connection with Conservative administration of timber lands
���wbich were cf a most objectionable
character. "I have," said he, "defended in the police court, miserable settlers who were prosecute ri
bv the timber rangers of our honorable friends opposite (Conservatives) fur taking .Brewoad from the
timber hinds of the government,1'
aud Mr. Silion's caustic commentary ou this was;���"2t,ooo square
miles for the speculators and the
police court for tbe settlers."
