I have not got that information, but I will explain how the names are put on our voters' lists. The hon. member for Calgary and another hon. member opposite tried to convey the impression that as more, votes were polled in somd divisions that there were on the voters' lists, and that as he alleged that occurred in the north especially, there was something crooked about the last election.
Let me point out that we do not prepare the voters' lists, as they do in other provinces.
Then why was it not also stated, because it is true, that three instances of that occurred In the district of Calgary, and thre'e instances in the district of Macleod, as well as three instances in the Edmonton district, and one instance of it in Strathcona. I want to explain why a thing like that could occur. The preparation of our voters' lists is entirely different from the system in the other provinces. We are never particular in preparing our lists because we know that a man can vote whether his name was put on the list before polling day or not. Some carelessness was exhibited no doubt by the enumerators, and they omitted seVeral names, but these men came forward on polling day and got their votes as they were entitled to do. The statement that more voted than were on the list before1 the day of election applies not only to the Edmonton district but also to Calgary and Macleod.
In the Calgary district at poll number 14 there were 59 votes polled, while there were only 53 on the list before polling day. You will bear in mind that when a man votes with us his name' is put on the list and it need not necessarily be on the list until the day of polling. In the Calgary district, poll number 32, there were 81 votes polled and 64 on the list; in poll number 66 there were 11 votes polled and there were 10 on the list. The first poll I mentioned in Calgary district was in Calgary city, the second poll was at Pine Creek and the third poll was at Kamanaskis. Just one other matter and I am through. It' has been stated here that the press in every portion of the Northwest Territories was condemning the government because of this legislation. I quote the following item from the Strathcona * Plaindealer ':
The Calgary papers, particularly the ' Herald,' are in a terrible state of excitement about the distribution of constituencies in Alberta. The faot that thirteen constituencies out of twenty-five are north of Red Deer has caused the ' Herald ' to fume and foam in a most extraordinary manner. They consider the arrangement the most iniquitous gerrymander ever perpetrated. They present a map to illustrate their point, and really the appearance of the map proves
the utter fallacy of their argument. Calgary people seem to imagine that all the immigration of the last five years has been into t.he south country, whereas as a matter of fact the north country has been filling up at an equal if not greater rate. Calgary's eagerness for capitaL honours has got away entirely with the prudence and good judgment of the 1 Herald.'
