OTTAWA, Dec. 12.-A plea tor full investigation into all the .circumstances ot the now famous raid by military police on the OUeJph Novitiate was laid before the government by a large delegation representing j Orange lodges and the Guelph MlnlH- i terial Association. The proceedings i w�re closed to the press, but it" fs � understood that censorship restrictions in connection with the raid cama in for special mention. The delegation was received by Sir Thomas White, acting premier, and nvembers ot the government. When the delegates had been admitted the question was raised as to how far the proceedings should be open. A few minutes later Sir Thomas White Informed press representatives that i It -was the deaii'e of the delegation that the proceedings should be in private. The government, he said, were willing to take either course. Five meimbers of the house of commons formed part of the delegation: Lieu;-Gen. Sir Sam Hughes, O. D. Castieman (Dundas); H. C. Hocken, Dr. Edwards and G. Berry. Including in the delegation also were Rev. W. M. Palmer, Rev. Ben Spence, .T. I. Hartt, M.UA. (Ontario), Rev. M. R. McFarlane, Rev. Mr. Fish and W. Crawford. Govt. Statement The proceedings lasted till 1 o'clock. Sir Thomas White, acting prime minister, afterward made the foUowihg statement: "Representatives of the Guelph Ministerial Association and of the Orange Order ot Canada waited on the government today and requested that an open investigation under oath be held into all the facts and circumstances connected with what is known as the Guelph Novitiate raid. The government heard the representations put forward and stated that they would be taken under consideration. "It was suggested and regarded as reasonable by all present that as furnishing a basis in accordance with established precedent for the request put forward, that allegations or charge's of a speclflc or definite character should be formulated it it was practicable to do 80. The representatives of the Ministerial Association will take up these matters on their return. "The acting prime minister made it clear that even it no specific charges were formulated, the government would most carefully consider the representations which had been made and the, request of the deputation for investigation by commission or otherwise." "The members of the government present were, Sir Thomas White, acting premier; Major-Gen. Mewburu, minister of militia and defense, and Hon. Arthur Meighen, acting minister of Justice. For the Boys at Frank We, with thousands of our boys, are rejeloing In the fact that they will soon be home well and happy with relations and friends, but we mutt not forget that there are thousands of our soldiers ill in iaolated hospitals, who have given their livet ^more comfortable and so much for us, and we should not �top at anything that would make pleasant. Now that the Influenza epide-mio Is practically over, medical authorities advise the Herald it ia quite safe to gather the magazines and reading matter from the Lethbridge homes for the oonvai-eseent sofdiert at the Frank sani~ tarium, and we earnestly request the citisens of Lethbridge and vl: cinity to donate freely anything they might have that would be of Interest to these boys. The Herald sends a box every week to the Frank Institution and we ask every person to keep this' in mind. Phone the Herald and we shall be glad to send the Boy Scouts for anything you have.
