The  first contention  was   completely  answered in  the debates  in   the  Housej)f  Commons;  the  second  was proved to the unfounded by  the invetigation before the  Public  Accounts Committee.  The policy *>f the -present Government is merely a continuation  of that of its predecessors; a-itl  the outcry that it had been practically giving iUWaV i������������ pttbljc  resources was answered by the  statement that the Mackenzie Gov-  enimetit, from 1S-73 to 1878, re-  an a\-??rage bonus of lO.veji*' $23 per  square mile on a total of 310  squtil-e miles; the Conservatives,  from l.#79 to 18s)5, an average  bonus of ������4.3 per square mile on  an area of 2U,&22. square miles;  ini3-t1i^p^S!SWt'~TnliwiTriirtwitiun"ri^  average, favS-nlis <ot :$$!L 92 on-an  area .*jjf 0,450..
