Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 5, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, APRIL 5, 1918 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE FfVI Col. Currie Says Govt, To Blame For Conditions In Province of Quebec Ottawa, Apr. "B.-Before the orders nf the ilay were called fn Commons Colonel ,1nlin A. Carrie moved the nd-journment of tho house to consider a mutter of importance, namely, the recent rioting, agitation, disturbance .aid non-observance of the Jaw In the city of tjuebcc, and all matters relative to It. Speaker Rhodes ruled that Hie motion wan in order. He Raid, however, that it wan for tlio house to determine the desirability of discussing such an important matter at {he present time. He, therefore, proposed to submit thin question to the house. The question was submitted and a rising vote taken, 21 members voting in favor of the motion. As only 2(> votes are. required to permit the Adjournment of the house on n Question of Importance such as this, Colonel (?urrio was allowed to proceed. Speaker Rhodes, however, before allowing the member for Simcoo to speak, drew the attention of the house to the fact that under a motion of this character, discussion must be strictly relevant to the subject which in this case was the recent rioting which took place in Quebec. He said wording of tlio motion would appear to indicate that Colonel Currie wished 1o widen the ifleltl of discussion to the greatest extent. Ho warned the members'that they would not be allowed to stray from the direct topic of discussion. In A Mild Way Colonel Currie in opening said he proposed to treat the subject in a mild' manner. He believed, however, that it was a subject which should Every spring, for years, Mr. Amos Smith, of Port Hood, C.B., suffered from boils, until be used Zam-Buk. He writes: " Each spring they would return and break out on my bands and arms. At times they were so bad that I could scarcely work. I tried various remedies without receiving any benefit. I consulted a doctor, but he was unable to cure me. " Then a friend ' recommended Zam-Buk. The Improvement after using the first box was surprising. I continued until the boils bad entirely disappeared, and I have never had any return since." Zam-Buk is also unequalled for eczema, ulcers, abscesses, scalp eores, ringworm, biood-po.isoning, piles, cuts, burns, scalds, etc. All druggt�tB,1or Zam-Buk Co., Toronto; 50c. box, 3 for $1.25. be discussed by the house, despite the fact that great pressure | had been brought upon him to go on with It. He explained that his reason was not a lack of confidence motion as he had no desire to cmbaraas the government. Ho believed, -however, that the whole country was waiting for a free and open discussion of the military j situation in the country. During the past year, he said, there I had been frequent outbursts similar j to the recent occurrences In Quebec I City and the. province of Quebec. At. the last session silence had been maintained In regard to them because it was not the desire of any one. to say anything that would damage voluntary recruiting. Critical at Front Colonel Currie referred to the condition of affairs at the front'as being critical. This was Bhown by Lloyd , George's recent appeal for more men. | He regretted that this appeal was given but little prominence in the newspapers as compared with the rioting In Quebec. | Referring to the orders-in-council regarding rioting and idleness which : Sir Robert Borden read at the open-' ing of the session. Colonel Currie. : said he was glad to see that the gov-i ernmont proposes to put more "pep" into its administration of the mili-i tary service act in Quebec. The regulations in regard to the taking of men, he said, are excellent but the question which it, is desirable to discuss is one tliat goes back to the time, two years and three months ago, when Sir Robert Borden announced that Canada would provide for overseas service a force of halt a million men. Need Men Reviewing the methods adopted by the government to obtain men under the voluntary system, the member for North Simcoe, spoke of national service and said: "You cannot carry.on the war by a card index system, neither by boards; we must have men and that is what the country wants." Referring to the members of the last parliament, he said that many of them were brave and resolute and, many had left the house never toj-e-turn. Those men, he said, had only received some military commendation at the hands of the public for all their work during the last session. Here Colonel Curris was called to order by the speaker1 who failed to gee that the member's remarks bore any relation to the matter of the Quebec riots. Colonel Currie then spoke of the adoption of the Military Seryice Act, declaring that if it had been passed subsequent to the passing of the war times election act it would have been far more stringent. He said it received opposition by the members from Quebec, who had done everything in their power to delay -its action. Tribute to French Soldiers A tribute to the French who had fought overseas was made .by the speaker, who praised their bravery. He said that the people in the.province were not at fault in their atti- BON TON Serving Ice Cream, Confectionery, Fruit, Cakes and Pastry.

(The Bulletin, Sydney, N. S) tude toward the war. They had been misled .by the political leaders. He said that if the government had gone to the country at the time of the last election without the War Times Election Act the anti-British element would have won the election. This remark called forth cheers from the opposition. In the province of Quebec, said Sir Colonel Currie, every effort had been made to prevent tho people from complying with the Military Service Act. TJp to the present Quebec had given about 5,000 men of which 3500 wer^e English, leaving only 1500 French who had enlisted. Speaker Rhodes objected to Colonel Currie's discussion of the operations of the Military Service Act. GoVt. to Blame Colonel Currie said that the government was to blame in the way it had started to enforce the Military Service Act in Quebec. It had been too quiet and gentle. For instance a prominent figure in the province was the editor of the newspaper Le Devoir, Henri Bourassa. When the war opened this man had been in Belgium j or Strassburg or somewhere, but he had sneaked out under the protection of the British flag and came over to start trouble in Canada. "In the columns of his paper.!' said Colonel Currie, "he has n/eached sedition. 1 say this without reservation. He does not want equality or fraternity because he is a reactionary. Not only has he preached sedition but he has commercialized sedition and his sole object is to make money." "Why was not this man interned and his paper suppressed? (Applause). The government feared that he would be more dangerous locked up . than free. Better men than Bourassa havo been locked up in the United States without causing any difficulties." In the pages of Le Devoir, Colonel Currie continued, were to be found columns of government advertising. He held up a copy of the paper and pointed to an advertisement which he said was signed by the minister of Justice. "No doubt," he said, "the minister will have an.explanation for this, but how can any French-Canadian who reads this paper fail to think he is quite outside the pale of the war " After Lavergne There Is another man going around Quebec called Armand Lavergne, said Colonel Currie, wearing the stars of a colonel on his shoulders. He is allowed to write seditious documents. He is not doing any good. He is not producing food or engaging in aify useful occupation. He should also be interned. Colonel Currie closed with an appeal to parliament to keep faith with the boys in the fields of Flanders. H. H. Stevens, Center Vancouver, who followed, asserted that the AIM-tary Service Act is not being impartially administered by the government and asserted this was the cause of the rioting at Quebec. New York, N. Y., April 5.-The county grand jury today indicted Morris Roth Roberg as the man who on Monday morning last shot and killed Harry Cohen, a gambler, known to the underworld as "Harry The Jot." Roberg is charged- with murder in the first degree. Cohen, according to the district attorney was shot to prevent him furnishing information useful in the prosecutor's anti-gambling crusade. "Cohen was killed," said District Attorney Swan today, "us the result of a well organised plot, I am convinced that every detail was carefully planned, including an alibi for the murderer." TO PROTECT PEOPLE Washington, April 5.-Landing of Japanese naval forces at Vladivostok to prefect men and property was reported to the state department today by the American consul there. The action followed an attack on a Japanese officer by five armed Russians who upon being refused money, killed one Japanese and wounded two others. The force landed was said to be small and only sufficient to prevent further disorders." What the Press Agents Say AT THE OKPHEU.M Edmonton, April 5.-The sale of pure bred horses opened at the live stock show this morning and after close, spirited bidding between buyers from all parts of Alberta, and (ho neighboring provinces, $3,345 changed hands. While the bidders were eagerly after every likely looking animal that was br/ought forward, it was the Clyde stallion Cumberland Seal, owned by N. A. Weir, Chalon, Alta., that brought the high price when C. Armstrong of Botha, Alta., bought him at the banner price yet paid at the-sale, of 12,000. This is a splendid looking stallion bred in England, and when he clattered into the ring there was hearty admiration expressed. The other large sale of the morning wbb made by O.. H. Cresswell, Edmonton, who sold the stallion General Ar-nott for $625. Two fine looking animals were offered by A. h. 1-angman of Strome, Alta. After close bidding, one of these Clydes, Drummond Castle, sold for $425, while Rob Roy was purchased for $500. The well known Belgian horse, Gaton De Baumont sold for $450. In the sale of Suffolks,. Sudborne Dandy, owned by G. H. CresweU, fid* monton, sold for $285. "Borrowed Plumage" is at the Or-! pheum tonight. A synopsis is as follows: Madcap Nora is a kitchen wench in Selkirk Hall, but she as'plre^ to being a fine lady. She's Irish, with ; her share of deviltry, and spend3 most j of her time in aping the manners of I the lords and ladies. When the Ranger, Captain Paul Jones' ship, anchors '. off the coast the occupants of the castle retreat In fright, for Captain Jones had a terrible reputation in those Georgian days. Thus Madcap Nora gets her chance to wear the fine feathers and frills of her mistress, and she receives the American sailors with august manner. "Shure, and 'tis Lady Nora that's a-sp-akin' to you." Then Darby Q'Donova>n, from Virginia, steps forward, and Nora recognizes him as the playmate of years before. So when the Ranger disappears it bears off as fair loot as ever was captured. Also Wm. S.

Tho press of Western Canada has reviewed the "Volunteer" at great length, and in every instance unstinted praise has been bestowed upon it.

Gittus, who himself appears in the role of Murphy, the irrepressible Irish recruit who convulses the audience with a brand new line of humor at every performance. Gerald F.
