Kemp declared that its re- sponsibility .would be upon the Lfber- als if a wartime election were preci- pitated. The impression here ap- pears to be that there is some con- siderable responsibility upon the gov- ernment in averting one. It is for the government first of all to give a full account pf its stewardship since it was granted its last extension to permit Its acts to be subjected to scr.u- tiay -by parliament--and to outline its program for the coming year. There are many to be discussed in. connection with more recent eventu- alities, especially matters relating to overseas organizations. The high cost of living snd the railway ques- tion'must be discussed at length. Al- so, it is to be presumed, that the gov- ernment will be prepared to justify its demands for an extension 'before the country. Officers of North Star iodge No. 4, A, F. and A.
