CWinulpeg Free Press) The situation at Ottawa is one in riBgard to which every serious-minded arid patriotic Canadian realizes that it is'' his duty as a: citizen of Canada i\nd to the Empire to worlt out his own conclusion, 4tvesting himself of partizaa bias '.in ^prder that he may think clearly. :K consideration, not unlikely to prove useful in clarifying thought may be. suggested here in the form of a auestlpn, addressed to those who are of opiftion' that the policy behind the Borden haval bill is in the best interests of-both Canada and the Umpire. What would have been their feeilng in 1911 If the governmen t then in power, in' order to' make the reciprocity pact operative, jiad clone precisely whit the gov0rnm(!M now in power has undertaken to do in order to make the Borden naval bill operative?' There are many Canadians who feel very, strongly thtiti the policy behind 'the ,Borden iiaval bill is not in the best interests of Canada and the Empire, just as many Canadians felt in iDll,-ln regard to the reciprocity pact. Tho'conylctlons of the Canadians opposed to the reciprocity pact were voiood by'the opposition in the house at Ottawa In 19X1, led by Mr. Borden, now prlthe minister, just aa the convictions of the Canadians on the Borden naval bill aire voiced by the present opposition, led by Sir Wilfrid, who was prime minister in 1011. Mri Borden and his followers in the house in lOli contended that the govel-nnnont then in power had no mandate from the' people of Canada In regard to reciprocity, and claimed the right to resort to obstruction to force an appeal to the people on that question. The Liberal government, und^r the guidance of Sir Wilfrid baurier, neither resorted, to, nor threatened to resort to; any arbitrary procedure to coerce the majority Into submission.. ' The governmeht. in power in 1911 conceded it as the constitutional right of the opposition to compel an appeal to the ptopl(> of- Canada tor their verdict'upon the question of public policy then before parliament. But the government ilu power in 11)13 chqoses to. ^resort to unpreoedentedly and'indefensibly arbitrary procedure to gag and manacle the opposition, and clings desperately. to office, refusing to appeal to the people Cor their verdict upon the question of public pol-iay!.now befor6'edtall;ifegi?l^|t0?3^'flpdjth0ii: QbBtructlon conslflt44t"'lpSaj;tem{fts*; to'; L^eSist the^reva'lliijg illl'of^^the l^oufee 'ptJ^ervise(thamby>rgumenV. , iT^he clopure '.orlglflftt^d Jlfa* the;,:6rUt lahTHouse of Commons|r|f. ^i'en^^^^ '^^ixm> Wheij gpSklcopEgaiid,^In^erV l^jDiip^greBs '^W&iB^fiiSltlitell^riyln^.v �^nslderable, ^lnorItjri.a,[He;then; puti ^.question before the houi^e to the whelming majority. Next day, Mr. GIridstone, who was prime minlstfiT at the time, introduced an urgency rule, conferring the whole power of the house to make rules upon the Speaker, "until "he shall declare that the state of public business is no longer urgent." This was passed unanimously, after the Parnellltos had been EUspendEd. Before this action was taken, the Speaker had had to intervene on points of order no less than 187.5 times, and his interventions had occupied 15G hours of the time of the house. At the next session Mr. Gladstone proposed the resolution introducing the closure rules, which was carried after, a discussion which lasted three weoks. The Coriservatlve opposition, under the leadership of Sir Stafford Northcot'e, co-operated with the WlJeral government and Its supporters in the introduction of the closu're in the British House of Commons. There is thus aibsblutely no analogy between the- situation which made the introduction of closure necesjary in the British House of Commons and the situatiou at --Qttawa. And the manner in wliloh the Borden government has undeirtaken to introduce closure gi'pssly violates all British precedent, fliere should be fair and considered diapu|Slon of the constitu-tlonal principles involved in such an innovation. But by the device of the moving of the previous question the government, has placed itself In an indefensible position. To say nothing of the indignity^ to Sir WlUvid Lau-rier, the senior member of the Canadian parliamentj a Privy Councillor of (the Empire, and for fifteen years prime minister, .the government has effronted parliament by precluding the possibility of any amendment to the proposal moved by Mr. Borden, and seconded, by Mr. Rogers. Ev*n the government is shut off now from possibility of making any amendment. The discussiou can have no issue In'regard to the action of th'e house. The' house, as the result of the government's trick of the moving of the previous question, has ceased'to be a deliberative body In. respeOt of this question of the intro-tion of the closure. The discussion must'Ueeds be purposelSK^, uo far as the action to'he taken by the house is concerned. � It will simply be discussion for' the oounti'y. Bo^rlnot, the recognized authority on the rules knd procedure of the Canadian parliament, says in ^Is monumental boolJ: "Wlien the. parliament of the Do' minion -met for-.the first time after the passing of the Union Act of 1867, one lOf (he  first proceedings of the jtlouse o� - Commons , was necessarily to appolnt'a committee to frame rules for the. governmgnt of procedure in that house. 'The �oonunittee' subse-queti^tiy. reported the rules and standing orders' which now regulate the proceedings.^ of th^ Commons, which are substihti^lly those of the legisla-tlvft isjembly'of'Canada." Dealin.p; with the procedure in revising rules and- orders, the regular courSasis^to. ?tp^lnt a committee for that purpose; ..
