VratBl^r Oliver protested that the provtndal government had not had time to conv alder the question. His announcemeat was met with cries of derision froia the vast throng which tranpM tba grass of tho lawns of the parltaBneat Imlldlngs under their feet. Pronlar Oliver was plainly shocked at the treatment and almost before his could record another question, that of (he appointment of a civil service com-mlsslonfr waa-demanded forthwith. Premier Oliver declared that the resolution paftainlng to the appolntaant of a civil service commissioner was an indictment against the present British Columbia government and refused to receive it. He expressed blm-self as not being fully acquainted with thb measure and at this point the returned men gavo vont to their faellngs. Following considerable heckling of the premier his angry retort to the returned men was drowned In the adund of motors and catcalls of tho men as tho procession began its march anew to uptown points carrying banners denouncing the alien enemy, conscientious objectors and hot shot for profiteers.

A. F. Kwing began the discusstou by CAmmentlng upon the deprivation of tM workers of their coramvn law rights, and he said that the action of tho railway workerr shewed that they regarded it us a better plan to secure compensation than the act.
