During the afternoon the hostilities were confined to Interchanges between members nt the oppoaltion and the government but at the evening sitting the nngagement became more general and was participated in by members on both Hides of tho house. The crux of the trouble was the old charge in regard tu the omission of tiie names or Holdler candidates from the iists published tn the I'auA (Man daily record, the aoldiers' over-Heas daily. W. F. Cockshutt. Unionist candl-ilate for Urantford. who* led the attack, paid some attention to the pre-niicr and expressed the opinion that the names had been deliberately omitted.
