Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 11, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta VOLUME VI. TWELVE PAGES Letlibritlgc, Alberta. Wciliicstla.v. Dccciiibci' 11, 1912 PRICE-FIVE CENTS STREET CARS ON THIRTEENTH STREET HANG IN THE BALANCE Niiiiiber 1 mm m mm for MIAN COnce NAVt Laurier Will Move Amendment and Precipitate Lengthy Debate in Commons DON'T OBJECT To Emergency Vote So Much as the Change in Relations OtUwa, Out., Dec. 11.-JUberalg held |i second caucus this morning to con-sidev the policy to be adopted in regard to tl\c government's naval program. It broke up at twelve o'clock. Members stated that the decision leached at the first caucus to submit an amendment to the government's proposal was unanimouuly adopted. A general outline of the amendment was approved, but it was left to Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and the ex-ministers to make a final draft of it to be submitted to the consideration of the house. The anjcndmcnt will declare in favor of the principle of a Canadian navy and incidentally condemn Premier ilorden's plan in its present form. It is not likely that it will be made public until Sir Wilfrid sub-]nits it to the house on conclusion of his speech. It is .stated that the opposition during the course of the debate will not take cvception to an!* emergency gift so much as they will' object to the alleged departure from the long standing relation which exists between Canaida and the motlver country. No decision as to how far the opposition will urcss its proposed amendment will bfi arrived at, it is imdetstood, until after-the-l Christmas holidays. They say .they want to .see how the government's proposal strikes the country sis .weeks hence. For that reason the debate will tot be allowed to reach a conclusion before ('hristnias holidays.
