Lewis' daylight savings bill with amendment provid- ing that bunds of clocks be advanced an hour from the first Sunday in April to the Urst Sunday in Novem- ber, instead of from April 30th to October, as provided by the bill. Another amendment is to designate time as "standard" time, instead of "local" time as proposed by Lewis. The committee received scores of re- solutions passed by boards of trade and other public bodies in favor cf adoption of tho principles of the bill. Objections were very few. The bill is not likely to be passed this ses- sion, although 51 r. Lewis and Mr. F. D. Monk called upon the premier this morninir and asked that the bill be made a g-overument measure with a view to having it pushed through before -prorogation. i'he Illume Building, a four storey ha> been created in the horse shrowjb'hck ami stone structure at Kansas f lead timber "iatte that J.

LOAN J The consistent n-anner' in which j tiie Conservative opposition at Otta- i wa is following its policy of incon- j sistency, has beer, again demonsirat- j ed by its attitude towards the pro-! P'jseu loan of ten million dollars to j the Grand Trunk Pacific. Twenty- five years ago the Canadian Pacific Company was an uncertainty as a paying proposition. It had no back- ing but itself. Yet in the time of a iinanciai difficulty the Conservative government made them a loan of thir- ty million dollars to tide them over. In the present instance., circum- stances are vastly different. Judg- ing'by the financial success of other railroads in Western Canada there is not a particle -jf doubt but what the G. T. P. will be a paying propo- sition, fully able to meet all its ob- ligations. Moreover it has the guar- antee of the Grand Trunk Railway Co. The government is therefore cer- tain to suffer no loss. On the other hand, by making the loan, the government will expedit0 the eonstructr-7i oi the railroau. Whatever the Cont rvative members of Parliamer.r may want at Ottawa the people oi oguntry and more particularly of the West do not -want anything to interfere with the rapid completion of the G. T. P. There is no objection on the pan of the pub- lic to the government making the loan especially when there is no pos- sibility of loss and when the company is paying 4 p.c. interest and the! government can borrow the amount for less. The Opposition by taking! the stand they have are not only] glaringly inconsistent with their re-' cord in dealing with the C. P. R., but are just as much out of touch with public opinion. TRUE SONS OF EMPIRE Montreal, April pa- triotic demonstration took place at- the Letellier Club this evening, when an adress v.-as given by Mr. Michel Del- M. P., for Poiitneuf. Mr. Delisle devoted himself to the question of naval defence. ..first time it has been discuss- ed by French Canadians out- side, parliamentary or govern ment circles. Mr. Delisle of course supported the govern- ment position, but he arous- ed great enthusiasm when he declared: "There is not a French Canadian in the whole province -who would not out of sheer gratitude, as well as patriotism, fly to the defence of the British flag, if he thought the empire was was really in danger." In the course of a warm tribute to the way in which Great Britain had treated the French of Canada, Mr. De- lisle declared that Britain had given true liberty to the French Canadians., and if the opportunity should arise. they would demonstrate their appreciation in a. manner which would convince the whole world that they were true sons of the empire. Mr. Delisle's remarks wete repeat- edly cheered.

April bill NATIONS SHOULD INTERFERE The reports of the horrible mass- acres of Christians, both missionar- ies and Armenians in Asia Minor, makes the humanity-loving part of the world wish for a Gladstone to raise a loud voice of protest against such atrocities.

Yet the nations have not sent j orders to the rulers of these lems protesting against any such action.

When the people of the United States thought the Spaniards had murdered their fellow countrymen in the Maine, there was a war of revenge in a very sihorttime But now British and Americans are murdered along with native Chris- tians at Adana and Tarsus and no steps are taken by these great Chris- tian nations to punish the perpetra- tors or to stop the massacre. The British government sent a warship j to' afford protection for the refugees, but no effort seemingly was made to stop the massacres.
