Mr. S. J. JACKSON.

I may state, as the hon. gentleman (Mr. W. J. Roche) is not aware of it, that at present the judges do not arrange the polling subdivisions, but the government arrange the registration districts and the polling divisions. The reason why we had it subdivided in my district was that they were partisan divisions. Take the township in which I have lived for twenty-five or thirty-five years : We have had two polls in that local division for seventeen years, but as soon as the Roblin government came into power, they removed one and put all the voters in that township in Stonewall poll "and made some of the electors go a distance of twelve miles to vote. In the last Dominion election, we put a polling place in the middle of the division as before. We want the judges to lay out these polls for the convenience of and the defence of the people.

Mr. S. J. JACKSON.

I do not think it is wise to confine this survey to the Pas route.

I am of opinion that we can find a more satisfactory route from the main line of the Canadian Northern Railway, and that the survey should be commenced 100 or 150 miles south of the Saskatchewan river in Mr. LENNOX.

the hope of finding a better line. I am told there is a high ridge 30 or 40 miles east that would give a better line than the Canadian Northern line from Erwood.
