Mr. MOLLOY.

There was no prosecution and he knows it. So far as the remarks of the hon. member for Dauphin (Mr. Campbell) are concerned, that hon. member' is a personal friend of mine. It is not necessary for me to deal with any statements he made. My hon. friend from Humboldt (Mr. Neely) handled the ' Tall Pine ' from Dauphin to a finish the other night. It will be quite a while before the hon. member for Dauphin will make

an insinuation, much more a charge, while he is a member of this House.

Mr. MOLLOY.

I state in addition to what I say now that there is no charge against any judge in any part of Canada, let alone the province of Manitoba, but the Liberals charge that the Department of the Attorney General of Manitoba was prostituted for political ends. When I was interrupted by the hon. member for South Simcoe I was proposing to read a statement by Mr. Ingram, who was made to suffer for his affiliation with the Liberal party. If I may simply give the title of the article and then allow it to be put on ' Hansard ' I will be willing to do so; otherwise I will be compelled to take the time of the House while I read it.

The hon. gentleman would like to be enlightened on that.

Mr. MOLLOY.

He knew he could not resign, and if he did resign he has every reason to believe he would not get back. If he will face the election petition, which I believe he will have to do, perhaps he will be very glad to resign. How would he like that? There is quite a diherence in doing a thing voluntarily and being compelled to do it; and the hon. member for Lisgar had better sit as close to his seat as he possibly can and just as long as he can, and we will take chances on his coming back on the next appeal to the people of Manitoba.

Now, I think I have disposed of the state-

ment that the judges make the list. There is one point in connection with the list on which I will barely touch. If the registration clerk is fair and honourable, no man gets on the list except the man who applies personally and takes his oath; and if that list is brought before the judge and revised by the judge, the judge is absolutely helpless unless somebody takes interest enough to appeal against a name. Names are appealed against by different people in different constituencies, and they are often upheld by the judge who declares that they have the right to be on, and I think in the majority of cases they have the right to be on. We have every confidence in the judges of Manitoba. But the fact that the list can be stuffed was sworn to by Judge Ryan of Portage la Prairie, an appointee of the Canadian government in this investigation which went back only to the list of 1908 and which the government would not carry back to 1903. Judge Ryan, who is one of the ablest and most reputable men in Manitoba, said that the list could be stuffed. He did not pretend to have knowledge of it being done, but I say it has been done and I say that men from the province of Manitoba in this House believe-or, at least, they have good reason to believe-that it has been done.

Mr. MOLLOY.

You read it. The hon. gentleman asks: Will this government appoint a Royal Commission? I will send him back to his political chum the hon. member for Lisgar of the province of Manitoba to ask them to grant the commission that is practically demanded by the people of Manitoba to determine whether the lists in Manitoba are stuffed, and whether the system of appeal on the lists is fair and square. And let them go back to the year 1903, and we will undertake to prove, as I have said before, not only that the list was unfair, but that it was the most unjust list in the Dominion of Canada. That is the reason the members for Manitoba sitting on the other side of the House are so much in love with that system-because it had a good deal to do with them getting to this House in the election of October 26, 1908.

Something was said here the other night [DOT]-and I think the statement was challenged -as to the prostitution, of justice in the province of Manitoba. Justice is being prostituted in certain cases for political effect. And I am making the statement that it has been done in my own county; and I make the statement also that I believe these cases are known to hon. members from the province of Manitoba. I will mention one,-the case of Dominion City. The party there was sentenced by the
