An attempt from within of a mild nature roulrl not bo made up by any vi'ioiis rnpro8entations from without, ami SI), all in all, the ��!Sslon imN.scd along without scandal. The one lonely and fruith^H.'; attempt at any effort to Kcandal was tlic .sale ol' certain bonds lliriiugh tlus Do-nilnion Securitle:s f'ompany. The facts in connection with this iransnctloii, though not particularly interc.c.'flng, might hii repoalftd. in April, 1!117, the iegislaturn authorized tlie pi-ovinclal trca.snriM' to raise a loan of $2,r>OII,00'J tor giuicrul public purposes;.

Accordingly, the treasurer inter-ricwed the Dominion Securities Corporation, one ot the largest and most successful -distrlbutora ot bonds, and concluded a tentative arrangement. Returning west, the ])rovincial treasurer remained in Winnipeg tor a few days durlng'which time he was in communication with the government, and it was finally decided to accept the verbal offer which had been made by the Dominion Securities- Corporation for the purchase ot a portion ot WOUNDED HUN.S RETURN TO FRONT Amstordajn, April 2.n. ^ Siieaklng before the main coniiiilltce of tho iftlchstag yosterda.v, Licui. dan.

It must be borne In mind that this interest rate .Is the highest that the province had been obliged to pay on any previous issue, and for that reason tho treasurer was willing to sell only a sufficient portion of the issue to reasonably meet his current re-tiuirements; During the previous year the province made a .small issue on which tenders were called for, but on the latter occasion this policy was/ not carried out, by reason of the fact that just prior to tho transaction one ot the largest cities in Eastern Canada had called for tenders for the purchase of a bond issue, and although the securities of this municipality stood very high, not a single bid was obtained at any price, indicating the very' uncertain conditions of the money THE AMUSEMENTS TAX ACT to take effect on, from and after may 1st, 1918. around the fact that one or two local agencies in Edmonton ware disappointed that notice of the proposed sale had not been given them, although they had been given to uuder-,.3tand that public announcement would bo made. The treasurer answered this, however, by stating that when circumstances over which he had no control arose, necessitating immediate action on his Ipart whilp in the east, that it w'as neither advisable nor was there opportunity to give the jnatter the publicity that it was originally intended should be given. In any event, notice to the public would have acconiplished little, in view of the experience of the municipality above referred to in connection with its advertising for tenders. 1 Altogether, the proceedings ot the committee developed nothing of importance, and in no way indicated that the affairs of the province had been either carelessly or impropei-ly handled in this respect. Aside from the fact that tho member for West Edmoitlon, who happened to be a lawyer, had asked a few questions, not a single member of the opposition ;.ook part in. the enquiry. Officially, the opposition absolutely refused to move In the matter. NOTICE The Annual Genera!
