Mr. S. J. JACKSON.

How would you do with one polling subdivision where part of the district was in two or three counties ? You say that you made them for the convenience of the people. Well, I remember a few years ago, when a subdivision was made for the province of Manitoba, the voters' had in some cases to go 60 miles to vote just because they happened to be supporters of mine. And they had to go [DOT]by a dog train in the winter. The red line had to be adopted when w'e were sent a list by the King's Printer. We will have to have a revision of the lists in that country because they are not fair to the public. When the hon. member for Souris (Mr. Sohaffner) interrupted me, I was asking him to point out-and he ought to be able to do it now because the hon. member for Marquette (Mr. Roche) has all the evidence in the trial and read a lot of it this afternoon-I was asking him to point out one man in the whole electoral division of Selkirk who was left off the lists, out of 1,500 votes. There was only one weak spot in the whole county, as far as the management is concerned, and that was a polling subdivision called Beausejour. where there were 14 names left off. But those voted all Mr. S. J. JACKSON.

the same, their ballots all went in, and they were not all Conservatives either-there was quite a proportion Liberal-and if there had been anything like a close election they would have counted.

Mr. S. J. JACKSON.

I will tell you what it is. You had the officials in the local government arrest Mr. Harvey, who was working against you in that district, and you had him taken into Winnipeg and Mr. S. J. JACKSON.

kept in durance vile to prevent him working among a population that would have voted against you.
