e magistrate appointed by the Attorney Gen-l eral's department of the province of Mani-
- toba to a term in the common gaol. The l party was taken to Winnipeg, but great
- political influence was brought to bear- f at least the local member for that county 1 thought so,-and it is a matter of history r that that party was back in Dominion City t the same day and before the constable who s had taken the one convicted to Winnineg.
; That cannot and will not be denied by any 3 man from the province of Manitoba.
* Mr. STAPLES. What was the name of ' the person?
* Mr. MOLLOY. Krivel. Then, take the ! Lac du Bonnet liquor case. The house of a i man there was, to use the common expres-i sion, ' pulled,' and he was fined for running l what is commonly known as a ' blind pig.'
But the party thus fined was an active ; political worker, and this was during the , election of 1904. The magistrate received a . telegram signed ' Colin H. Campbell,' * Do . nothing in the Lac du Bonnet case until
you hear from me,' or words to that effect. And nothing has been done from that day to this. If my memory serves me well, there have been 40 odd political cases since the present Attorney General took office-40 odd charges including arrests. And I will ask the hon. member for Macdonald (Mr. Staples) ot any other hon. member from the province of Manitoba, to name a case where a man was charged with a political offence and was ever brought to trial by the Attorney General's Department. The last is the celebrated Ingram case in Brandon. This man had acted as returning officer in the last Dominion election. Was he brought to trial? No. He was arrested, not prosecuted but persecuted, for political effect, and they tried to make a deal with the Liberal party, and according to the statement of Ingram they failed to make the deal and did not carry on the case. They dare not carry on this case and they know it.
