He explained that hi'; reason was not a lack of confidence motion as he had no desire to cmbarass the government. He believed, -however, that tho whole country was waiting for a fre* and open discussion of* the military ttuation in the country. During the past year, be said, there had been frequent outbursts similar to the recent occurrences In Quebec City and the province of Quebec. At the last seM-ilon silence had been maintained In regard to them because it was not the desire of any one to say anything that would damage vol-untnry recruiting Critical at Front Colonel Currie referred to the condition of affairs at the froril as beinK critical. This was shown by liloyd Oorge's recent appeal for more men. He regretted that tills appeal was given hut little prominence in the newspapers as compared with the rioting In Quebec.

April 5.-The county grand jury today indicted Morris Roth Roberg as the man who on Mondsy morning last shot and killed Harry Cohen, a gambler, known to the underworld as "Harry The Jot." Robersj 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, "as the result of a well organized plot. I am convinced that every detail was carefully planned, including an alibi for the murderer."

Me siilil that if the government had gone to the country at the time of the lust election without the War Times Klec-tion Act the ar.ti-llrltlsh element would have won the eleriion. Tills remark called forth cheers from the opposition. In the province of Quebec, said Hlr Colonel Currie. every effort had been made to prevent the people from complying with the Military Service Act. t'p to the present Quebec had given about r�,00 men of which :l5iio were. English, leaving only liiou French who had enlisted. Speaker Rhodes objected to Colonel Curries discussion of the operations of the Military Service Act. Govt, to Blame Colonel Currie said thut the government was to biame iu 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 ot the newspaper l.e He-1 voir. Henri Hourasja. When the war opened this man had been in Belgium or Strassburg or somewhere, but he ', had sneaked out under the protec- i Hon of the British Hag and came over ! to start trouble is. Canada. ' "In the columns of his paper." said Colonel Currie, "he lias p/eached sedition. 1 say this without reservation. ; He does not want equality or frater-1 nlty because he is a reactionary. Not , only has he preached sedition but he. has commercialized sedition anil Ms j sole object is to make moniy." "Why was not this man Interned and] his paper suppressed'.' 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 tiiink he is quite outside the pale of the war " I After Lavergne j There Is another man going around Quebec called Armand Uivergtoe, said Colonel Currie, wearing the stars of a colonel on his shoulders. He is al-1 lowed to write seditious documents.! He is not doing auy good. He Is not | producing food or engaging in atfy useful occupation. He should also be interned. Colonel Currio closed with an appeal to parliament to keep faith with tho boys in the fields of Glanders, j H. H. Stevens, Center Vancouver, who followed, asserted that the Military Service Act is not being impartially administered by the government and asserted this was the cause of the rioting at Quebec.

A synopsis Is as follows: Madcap Nora is a kitchen wench In Sell-irk Hall, but she aspire/ to being a fine lady. She's Irish, with her share of deviltry, and spends most ot her time In aping the manners of the lords and ladles. When the Hanger. Captain Paul Jones' ship, anchors off the coast the occupants of the castle retreat in I right, 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-akln' to you." Then Darby Q'Donovan, from Virginia, Stops forward, end Nora recognizes him as the playmate ot years before. So when the Ranger disappears it bears off as fair loot as ever was captured. Also Wm. S.
