Mr. J. H. SINCLAIR:

The agent who occupied this position some years ago is still at Heatherton. He was dismissed after the change of Government in 1911 in order to make room for the friends of the late administration. He had been a satisfactory officer. As this is not a partisan Government I tho lgbt that pe.haps the six or seven years he has been out of office would be sufficient punishment tor having voted Liberal, and that the minister might consider the question of reappointing him. I do not know whether it is in order to say anything, because now theie is no patronage and I am not at liberty to write a letter to say that he is a good man. He held office for a number of years with great satisfaction to everybody and he was removed in 1911 with a host of others in .Nova Scotia. I think he would take the office back if it were offered him.

With regard to the Mor-ley and Blood reserves in Alberta I think there are some matters to be taken up by the hon. member for Macleod (Mr. Shaw) and by myself. I presume we can discuss these later on.

Unionist (Liberal)

Mr. KNOX:

This appropriation is $50,000 less than last year. It is very unwise to cut down any of the appropriation in these provinces. We have >a number of reserves in Northern Saskatchewan capable of producing foodstuffs at the present time. We have suitable land there and a large amount of cheap labour on the reserves. I do not wish to say very much on the subject, but I feel very strongly the importance of not reducing the appropriation.
