Mr. FOWLER:

The point is that he does not put up sufficient security. If he should put up a bond for the costs, then it would be all right; I would not care who filed the petition. I am sure that

every member of this committee 'is just as desirous as the hon. member for Carle-ton is that elections shall be properly conducted. The hon. gentleman has said that he knows a great deal about corruption; perhaps in his zeal to be elected he did transgress, but I do not propose that he shall plead guilty for me to that charge. I am always very careful to amid even the appearance of evil, so anxious am I not to do anything wrong in connection with elections. I do not see why it should not be required that the person who files a petition shall be a legally qualified voter. All he has to do is to prove that he is on the voters' list; that he has the necessary qualifications, that he is a British subject-surely he can prove these things easily enough. Where is there a chance for any preliminary objection in connection with that, if he is Teally a duly qualified voter, if he has the qualifications and is a British subject?
