Reginn, July 31.-Sir Clifford Stf-ton, speaking fo the Canadian club here today said that some newspapers were charging hltu with advocating tho retention of tho big Interests Borden government. That was not his position. What ho was advocating was that tho Liberals go Into office with representatives of tho Conservative party and that when they got in, if they found that tho big Interests were getting too much, that tho Liberals should put a stop to it. That was tho only thing for the Liberals to do and there was no use of their standing outside and criticizing Sir Hohort llorden'b proposals. It was up to the great Liberal party of Canada so far as it was composed of tho men who favored a vigorous prosecution of the war, to come in and form a union government, making tholr own stipulations as to policy and putting tholr shoulder to tho wheel. They could not get that kind of government by following the anti-war party of Quebec. That party says that Canada has dono enough tor the war In men and inonoy arid that the country is being ruined by war. That party through its leader, has made it clear that if it is returned to power It will send to Europo tho men who volunteered to go and that today meant that there would bo none, for in Canada for today voluntary recruiting had broken down. It was a question of whether Canada was to remain in tho war or to drop out. Sir Robert Borden's proposal for a union government between the Eng-ish-speaklng Liberals who were In favor of conscription and a vigorous prosecution of tho war, was still under consideration and the settlement of this question would probably be ono of tho most momentous political decisions for Canada since confederation.
