Mr. CAMPBELL.

Ross ! Ross and his party ruled this country for thirty-three year's, and I venture to say you will not rule it for thirty-three years or half that period. You were going to reform everything ; you said that the departments were reeking with corruption ; you have failed to show it, and the only thing Mr. Whitney has done is to repeal the marked ballot. That is a ballot that has been in force in England for generations, and which the people of England believe is a good ballot, and I do not care whether the Whitney government repeals it or not. He was going to repeal the Conmee Act and the Succession Duties Act, but instead of that he increased the succession duties. He has not been able to show one single thing that the Ross government has done that has not been to the credit of the province of Ontario. There never was a province governed so wisely or so well as the province of Ontario under the Liberal government, whose record will go down to generations as a wise and an honest government. There have been no complaints about the election law in the province of Ontario. The list is taken from the assessment roll and an appeal lies to the county judge, a court of revision is held, and Liberals and Conservatives have fair-play before that court. Everything is fairly and honestly conducted, and there are no complaints. There were complaints of the

Mr. A. CAMPBELL (Centre York).

I am sure the government will be gjad to know now what their duty is, and that before they attempt to pass auy law they will have to go to the hon. member for Carieton (Mr. It. L. Borden) and to the hon. member for Brantford (Mr. Cockshutt) and ask them to please be allowed to pass it. A government with seventy-five or eighty majority in this House must go to these gentlemen and ask them, forsooth, if it pleases their mighty-ness and their holiness to be allowed to pass a law. I would like to know who is running this country. Is it this little outfit over there, this small little band that the people of Canada rejected ; these men who were

told by the people from the Atlantic to the Pacific, told that their policy was wrong and that they were not fit to govern ? Is it these men who are going to hold the House up until the snow flies ?

Some hon. MEMBElRiS. Yes.

Mr. CAMPBELL.

the hon. member for Lisgar and those who have spoken from this side of the House, and have stated that men have to go 60, 70 and even 200 miles to register their votes. I say it is an outrage upon the people that should not be allowed to exist any longer than it takes to repeal it, and if the case is as made out by these gentlemen then I say it is the bounden duty of the government to interfere and rectify that wrong.

Mr. CAMPBELL.

Two can play at that game. We can stay here as long as they can, and we will do it, too. What this government undertakes to do they are going to do, and they are not going to ask the opposition whether they can do it or not. It is a nice thing if the minority, a small minority, that is discredited by the people, that the people have spewed out of their mouths ; it is a nice thing if they can hold this parliament in session until the snow flies. The leader of the opposition has given us warning ; he has threatened us in plain terms : You cannot pass this law unless it pleases* us, Who is ' us ' I would like to know ? A little discredited band over there who, if they went back to the country to-day, small as they are, they would come back with scarcely a baker's dozen ; a miserable outfit. And the hon. member for Brantford (Mr. Cockshutt), he has not been long in this House, and when he is in the House a few years longer, he will not be so bold and so bumptious as lie has been to-night. He talks about the province of Ontario. What have we suffered from in the province of Ontario ?
