which the conviction    was expressed j naimo on Sunday,   J,
by members that Mrs. Belle Guiness
was still alive, appropriated $0,000
to be spent in clearing up the mystery of the "house of death."
When an attempt wus made in the
city council to obtain an appropriation of $14,000 to pay detectives,

Many acts of lawlessness wore committed in connection with the street
car strike between midnight and
dawn today. Trolley wires wore cut
crows i were drlvon Irom their care,
and in some instances ' non-union
men woro attacked by strikers and
sympathizing friends. Trolley wires
in Lakewood, u western suburb were
cut in several places with tho result that thc Municipal Traction
Company announced . this morning
that -no further attempt would be
mado to run cars In that section until tho Lnkowood authorities guaranteed protection for its men and
cars. Because of alleged discrimination in farce against Lakewood by
tho Municipal Traction Co,, it is
claimed that the authorities of tho
town are making no effort to suppress lnwlcss acts committed by
strike sympathizers.

similar schemes which have now been
found dangerouB ta provinces where
the -Liberal machine does not control the department of justice.- But
lt accomplishes tho same purpose, at
little expense, with loss- peril and
with more absolute certainty of success. It is invented by the same
machine, introduced" by the minister
to whom the previous conspirators
owe so much, and supported by those
baser elements which have brought
the Liberal party into its. present
position of disgraco. II the measure should be adopted it will he
operated by the class of officials of
which Leach, Preston, Wagner, Mo-
berly and Nixon aro samples,. and of
whom Mr. Prltchett, "Cap" Sulll
van and such persons'have-been advisers and instructors.
With- unparalleled impudence, added to hypocrisy, Mr. -Aylosworth has
attached this scandalous clause to
what professes to be a measure amending tho election law against corruption and fraud. The Ayleawortb
bill, as Mr. Boyce points out, is bet
ter described as a measure for the
promotion of fraud and corruption,
and the minister .devoted nine-tenths
of his speech to a detence of tho in
ruinous clause which la tho main
purpose of the hill. The provisions
against bribery and fraud are much
woaker than those of the bill intra-
Jduced by Mr. Alcorn on the Conservative ' side, and even these few
wholesome' provisions are tied to the
main clause, bo that the Opposition
can only secure, this 'much election
reform by giving the government
power to steal a dozen or more
seats which otherwise thoj could'not
hope to carry.
What is this clause which the Opposition are fighting? It is simply
a provision giving the Government
power to step in after the eioction
writs are issued, and prepare new
electoral lists for: the whole of British Columbia, tho wholo of Manitoba and all those parts of Quebec
and Ontario- which are not organized Into municipalities. British Columbia and Manitoba have complete
nnd thorough registration systems
The unorganized and outlying dls
tiicts of Ontario and Quebec are
amply provided for by tho provincial franchise law. So far as quo-
bee is concerned, the chief effect of
the measure would probably be to
allow the Dominion authorities to
make voters' lists of miscellaneous
railway labourers along the line of
the Transcontinental and attach
thom to certain constituencies. The
effect In Ontario, Manitoba and British Columbia will be to enable the
machine to create absolutely new
lists, to do it at tho last moment,,
lo Bhut out all effective appeal and
all-publicity, and'so to carry out
under form of law that process of
seat stealing which was performed
contrary to law, by tho "thin rod
line" crime of 1004. It would do
more easily what was accomplished
by the London conspiracy of 1905
by the Brockville and. Huron steals
of 1880, by the, St. James, Montreal, plot of 1008, and was at
tempted by the trick ballot boxes in
Hastings and Frontenac four years
Mr. Aylosworth points out that
the Conservative party is committed
to federal control of federal franchises, whilo he admits that his own
party is committed to provincial
control. Each system ha! Its merits if honestly pursued, and each
might be honestly advocated, But
there le no merit and no honest
purpose In a method which retains
provincial control in provinces where
the Laurier party dominates and imposes federal control of tho franchise in Conservative provinces. The
Aylosworth bill does not touch tho
Maritime Provinces, It does not
touch Quebec oxcept probably ln tho
Transcontinental Railway belt. It
doe. not trouble Alberta or Saskatchewan, which are under Orlt rule.
But fur Dominion election! lt authorize! absolute control of the franchise In the two Conservative province, of the west and of a large
part of Ontario.
Tho bill provides that ta the provinco! concerned "voters" lists shall
bs prepared Immediately after the Is-
.uo of any writ for an election, or
at any time when toe Govornor.in-
Council ho directs; and for the purpose of, preparing and giving effect
to such voters' Hat. the Governor-
Ill-Council may appoint all necessary
officer, tnd confor upon them all ne-
ceaiary powers," and that "no per-
■on whoso n.nn,- 1. pot included ,n
the voter.' list us prepared and revised shall be entitled to vote." Tho
measure professes to adopt toe provincial franchise system and method,
and to take the provincial lists for
n basis, but it freely authorizes the
Dominion officer, appointed for that
purpose to strike out or add .names
to any extent, and thus gives complete powor to make a new list.
Thero It no condition requiring appeal to Judge., no restriction upon
the powor. of the federal officer., bo
qualification for appointment to
those positions, nothing to prevent
th. Government turning over the
wholo business to a political committee of Cap. iSulllvana, Loochos,
and Moberieya.
The only exouss lor this Interven
tlon Is the fact that   constituencies
ta Manitoba   and   British Columbia
sometime,   oros. the boundaries   of
Dominion   constituencies,   requiring
could easily be met by the appointment of a Judge iu the locality to
assign the voters to their proper
polls. It la true that the worst uf-
fences ln the "red line" crime of
1904 happened in districts where
these broken boundaries did not occur, and where thero was. no excuse
for the wholesale disfranchisement.
It is also true that Mr. Borileii and
the Manitoba Conservatives havo declared their, willingness to accept a
measure which will meet the difficulty about boundaries without interfering with tho provincial control of
franchises. They are willing that
Mr! Ayleswnrth shall accomplish all
that ho pretends to desire if ho will
be content with that.
But Mr. Aylosworth and his Muni
toba supporters have shown clearly
that the overlapping of liouiuluriea ia
not the t- trouble. They hnvo attacked tho Manitoba Govoi-iiment uud Its
control of the franchise. Tl-oy have
read in tho House affidavits, proved
to have bce< bought and paid fur,
to show thut Miinitolm provincial
lists wero unfair. -Their Uuiician affidavit maker has servud a term in
Jail,-and is entitled to another one.
It is established that Manitoba has
a frunchiso system us frco, registration as fair, and lists aa near perfect as can bo found anywhere in
Canada. According to Liberal doctrine the provincial governments
havo a right'to control tho franchise
for Dominion elections ln that provinco, and, whilo a Grit government
was there that right was nover questioned. It was never questioned as
to British Columbia until the Conservative, obtained control there. It
will never bo questioned as to Alberta and Saskatchewan while they are
governed by a Grit machine..:.
The Aylesworth bill is as clear ..e.
case ol political conspiracy as the
'London election crime. A similar
measure was proposed before the election of 1904. Mr. Sifton, who fathered it,: told hiB followers ln Manitoba at revision time that, they
noed not trouble about the election
list, as the authorities at Ottawa,
would attend to that,. The present
Chief Justice Fltzpatrlck. was then
Minister of Justice, and it is under,
stood that he absolutely refused to
sanction this plot. So the Sifton
bill waa not introduced, and the
western bOB! authorized his organizers and returning officers to mutilate the lists without legal authority. Many officers found themselves
ta the criminal courts in consequence
and others were greatly shamed. Mr.
Aylesworth 'confesses that his presont bill is made necessary by the
fact that the officers will not tako
any more such risks.    Mr,
