There are too many appeals, too much delay and the fair and equitable enforcement of the law everywhere in Canada is necessary.

"Subsequently it seems that a number of men pursued ten or twelve Dominion officers engaged in th^ enforcement of the -Military Service Act. j The officers took refuge in one of the ! police- stations of the city.

The Ottawa govern-nient~on its side and the military/authorities should recognize that the arbitrary and indiscrete conduct of the agents have been responsible, if it does not Justify, such scenes.

CALGARY Borden's Statement Ottawa, April 2.-Sir Robert Borden made a statement in the house of commons this afternoon^ on the rioting iu Quebec. He said:  "The incidents commenced on Thursday evening last. It appears that a young main named Mercier had been asked by the Dominion police en-| gaged in the enforcement of the Mili-I tary Service Act for his certificate I which he did not have with him. He was taken into custody until the certificate could be produced. As a mat; ter of fact under the provision of sec: tion 1"> of tho Military Service Act it was his duty to produce the certificate D.

SIR ALEXANDER GALT CHAPTER 1.0. D.E. ANNUAL SPRING TAG DAY Sat, April 27th IN SUPPORT OF THE PATRIOTIC WORK OF THE CHAPTER Tha nemuers of the Chapter are hoping for the interest and assistance oj the public, as har; been so generously accorded in the past. bee were such that it. was deemed de sirable to increase the garrison. On Saturday and Sunday 1,000 additional troops were sent to the. city and placed under the command of General Lessard. These troops were sent from certain points in Ontario and other parts of Canada. They were soldiers who hud been in training for some time. 4. The most serious developments were those that occurred last night and which resulted in loss of life. Four people had been killed, a considerable number wounded and. according to the latest reports, sixty peopla kad been taken into custody, Acted With Restraint "The troops," said Sir Robert, "so far as'we can judge, acted with restraint and moderation. The troops had been pelted with bricks and stones and fired upon. Eventually the fire was returned." Commenting on these .occurrences, Sir Robert said that it >vas the duty of the Federal Government to see that the Military Service Act is enforced.. It has been enforced, he said, with impartiality, fairness, consideration and firmness by the government in all parts of the. Dominion. The Dominion government would continue to do this in the future and .see that Federal officers are adequately protected if local officers and authorities fail to give them the protection to which they are entitled. Force Them to Serve Sir Robert then made the Important j announcement that with this end in view a number of amendments to the Military Service Act would be introduced, one of these amendments would provide that persons who engaged in active or forcible resistance., to this act shall be forthwith enrolled without regard to their class or exemptions which may have been granted to them, subject only to the consideration that they are of military age. Sir Wilfrid's Remarks Sir Wilfrid expressed the desire to make a few remarks, more particularly in view of the circumstance that trouble had occurred in a constituency which he had had the honor of repre-j senting in parliament for forty years. He said he would agree at once with tiie statement made by the premier | that the law is to be observed. That j statement would apply even to those j who do not believe in it. In \*'iew j of the fact that the statement made I by the premier was but a preliminary statement, he would defer most of his comment until a full statement had , been made tf� the house. Ho desired ( to observe, however, that the luw might be enforced in such a way as to provoke public sentiment. If enforced with proper regard for the people, lie said, there would be no ser-iou.s trouble in connection with its enforcement. Sir Robert Borden said he would be glad to have any suggestions along these lines that, the leader of the opposition might like to make. "Here, here," remarked Sir Wilfrid. Sir Wilfrid's statement having been greeted with an interruption by a government supporter, he remarked: "I will make my words good at the proper time." Sir Robert Borden stated that the incident wbicli had caused the trouble in Quebec had occurred hundreds of times in other pi�.ces. Sir Wilfrid repeated his belief that tho act had not Ueen judiciously eh-, forced iu Quebec city. 1 Legislature Passes Special Form of Taxation For Northern City Edmonton.
