Artlim- Meigii-cu, minister of (he interior, introduced a bill to amend the Yukon Act. He explained that the. hill contains provisions regarding Hie steps nlreatly taken by the government to recline tile organization-which governs she Yu- \ Icon, as it has been administered by j the department of the interior. I The bin also authorized the government to abolish the Yukon council and ' to appoint, in its place another admin-,' jstrative body. The bill provides that j the government may transfer to any i officer of the crown, any or all of the ] duties or functions of the offices auol- j ishetl. In this connection it has been an-, noui��e were dratted lie llilitary Service Act. No Discrimination Mr. Kuler. North Waterloo, asked: "In view of fait that government has removed the duty on farm tractors and has retained the duties on certain necessary imported component parts which enter into the manufacture of tractors in Canada, is it land what it was expected tltey would. War Changed Standard The member for Kingston said that before the war the people of Canada were beginning to value a -Ulan by what lie was-worth, the uumber of automobiles he owned, his wife's dinner parties and her gowtts. "The war," he said, "has brought sorrow, but thank God. it lias changed the standard of the purpose of the government to re- { the value of men. No longer are men move at an early date, the diserimina-' valued for what they possess but for tion thus existing against the Canad-; what they are.

"There is no discrimination against the Canadian manufacturer in this case." replied the minister of customs. "Provision v^; made by order in council March -(i, 191S. for draw back of duty on materials entering into the manufacture of tractors costing not more than $1400." Hereditary Titles IV. F. Nickie. Kingston, then moved Mr. Nickie read a despatch from overseas indicating that the premier had been asked to prepare a list of those on whom it was suggested titles should be conferred. ' "The premier was asked," Sir Robert interposed to loud cheers from, both sides of the home, "to prepare a list, but found other important engagements which made -it impossible tot him to give to it any consideration." ! am very glad," Mr. Nickie rejoin- even broader but bad restricted it because, lie did not want a dozen or so men In the hmise to vote-against it because they felt ft tvas too broad. It was said that we should have hereditary titles in Canada because they had them in Kngland. Conditions in Kngland and Canada are totally different. The titles in England were � reflection of old feudal'days. The speaker said he had been in Kngland. There was one thing that grated on him. It was to hear parliamentary addresses begin "My Lords , anil Gentlemen." to give the department the power to j "That may he all right for Kngirtttd remove wharves when they constitute 0wt it. won't do for Canada."

Apr. 8.-Three men arrested on suspicion of having murdered Constable Snowden on Friday night last were arraigned in the Winnipeg police court this morning and remanded, without charge being made against them, following the inquest in the death of Snowden, which takes place tonight, the three men will bo formally charged with the murder. Two of the men have confessed to their share in the crime and turned king's evidence against the third. Tr is understood, but the police decline to state which of the men confessed. Frank Sullivan, aged 48. a Nova Scotian. and Philip Johnson, aged S;i. a Dane, were arrested on Saturday noon as they left their rooms in the Savoy hotel, and John Stoiek. age,d 17, Hussian-German, was arrested shortly afterwards at his room in the Maple Leaf hotel. The men left absolutely no clue to their identity in the burgled store, where the murder was committed, but firearms, goods stolen from the store in uuestion-and goods belonging to several storekeepers in Fort William and Port Arthur were, found in the rooms of all^three of'the men.. WAR DEBT OF THE that an address be presented (o the j ed, "that the premier found those oth-liing praying that hereafter no hered- j er engagements ' itary titles be conferred in Canada. If Pitt and Gladstone," Mr. Nickie said, "were big enougb^to be prime ministers and to carry to tbeir dying day only surnames 1 do not think it is amiss that we should ask the men of today to do the same." Respecting the position of women. Mr. Nickie argued that women Were now an independent entirety. She now had lier own position in the community. The time had come was\at war. we were likely lo | when she should have recognition for what she had done herself, rather than to shine in the reflected giory of the husband. " - Mr. Nickie added that he thought it was the social aspirations of women which made a good many men desire titles. or any title of honor that would be held or can be used by. or which will confer any title or honor upon any person other than the person in recognition of whose services the honor or title *as been conferred." Speaking in support of his motion, Mr. Nickie said there were two reasons for bringing up the matter at the present time. Just now when the country was\at have a greatevop of decorations. That was the first reason. The-second was that with a Union government and the leader of the opposition not unsympathetic to the ./motion, it should receive a fair hearing. - Conditions Different Mr. Nickie stated frankly that he had no sympathy with titular distinctions for those in civil life. He would have preferred to make his motion AUDITOR'S FINANCIAL STATEMENT AND ANNUAL RETURNS OF THE RURAL MUNICIPALITY OFx FLOWERY PLAINS, No. 33, FOR THE YEAR 1917.
