Mr. MOLLOY.

I intend to read it all, but was giving it in junks on the instalment plan:

If they can find 106 Conservatives improperly put on that list or 106 Liberals improperly left off, I will resign my seat provided the hon. member for Brandon will agree to resign his, if his statements, are not true, as I claim they are not.

Mr. MOLLOY.

What the Liberals asked in the local legislature was this: They asked that- a commission be granted, and they made seven distinct charges, and they wanted to go back to 1903, when personal registration was first introduced in Manitoba, and the Roblin government refused that.

Mr. MOLLOY.

If you follow the letter of the law, and if the registration clerks are fair and square and manly, and will give to a Liberal what they give to a Coi>

servative you should be able to do it.

Mr. MOLLOY.

I am not charging my good friend from Selkirk with having done anything, far from it, I have great respect for him. I think he did pretty well, but I think he got a lot of help, according to the public accounts investigation held in the last session of the local legislature. Those who had any experience in elections know that 141 cheques of various amounts are likely to be a great factor in an election. Supposing they were paid out in the county of Provencher, they would be a big factor. In that case it would go to my opponent, and in that case there was a certain amount went to my opponent, but it didn't help him very much. The hon. gentleman spoke of the harm that a certain gentleman in Winnipeg did himself. Well, the opinion of the magistrate was that it was not a great offence, because he was only fined the small sum of $20, and there were many men in Manitoba who told me personally that they would be quite willing to pay $50 to do the same job. The hon. members for Manitoba have heard the same thing, no doubt they would willingly have paid $50. As regards the statement that has been made concerning the list in Saskatchewan, I have not heard any complaint made except in the Prince Albert election for the local House, where I believe the facts would rather go to show that the candidate opposing the Scott government was unfairly dealt with in the northern polls. The Liberal legislature, however, gave that gentleman his seat without his having to fight for it. Now my hon. friend from Selkirk resented something that was said about the premier of Manitoba by the hon. mem-oer for Humboldt (Mr. Neely). All I can say is that during the last session of the legislature, Mr. Ross, the member for Springfield in the local House, used words to this effect : * Grant me a committee of investigation, and I will charge that the premier of Manitoba has used his position Mr. BRADBURY.

for his personal enrichment, and if I do not prove that charge, I am not fit to keep my seat in this House.' Will any member from the province of Manitoba deny that those words were used, or words to that effect? I have no quarrel with the premier of Manitoba. He is a political opponent. He will remain that and I will remain what I am, but I simply state what a duly elected and respected member of the legislature of Manitoba said to the premier of that province. What happened? Was there a committee of investigation granted? Not at all.

Mr. MOLLOY.

I do not think the hon. member (Mr. J. D. Taylor) will deny that ex-Warden Bourke did apologize to Mr. McIntyre and that he agreed to pay the costs in conection with the suit. Now, I did not intend to cast any reflection on the hon. member for New Westminster, but what I intended to say was that the press reports stated that Mr. McIntyre who got this apology from ex-Warden Bourke had entered an action against the paper that I understand is owned and controlled by the hon. member for New Westminster. If that statement is not correct I am quite willing that the hon. gentleman (Mr. J. D. Taylor) should state whether or not Mr. McIntyre has entered a suit against his paper.
