The ridiculousness ol the whole contention-is apparent to every man who has a knowledge of Canadian pol- itics nnd is capable pi Ihlnfctng con- ecculivelj' for as much as two rnfii- tes. The Laurier-Llberal parly is not the cer.Unuatton ot the old Liberal party. It not the child of tha old Liberal party. Leaving Quo bee .aside, in every province In.

He would go hia own way, just as Quebec was determined to go her owu way. Representative Liberals from all the other provinces had a great, many interviews and confer? encea with Sir Wilfrid In an effort to extract from-him any outline of a plan of policy that Liberals could accept who arc In this war more than mere words and phrases to show iur it. Tliey were unable lo get from Sir Wilfrid any declaration of war policy that had sufficient force and meaning In It to satisfy men whose own and Wood are fighting in the war.
