They arc reserving tlicm- selvcs for a grand outbreak on the vision of the third reading- which cannot be taken until about the second week in .January. Owing to the deliberate policy of the opposition in absurdly protracting discussions on trivial points, a great part ot tho bill was closured without any discussion and this is the great point that will be made in tlie house of lords. Tliat house is expected to give the bill its first reading and then reject it on second reading. Already the Unionist peers have been notified that the largest possible muster is expected to dcmonstr.ite tlie overwhelming hostility to the bill in the house of lords. U tlie unionists cannot get it rejected by a ten to one vote they will not be satisfied. In order to come within the provisions ot the veto act the bill must tor Irish steers. Tokio, Doc.

After the shock of the reversal on the rinancisl amendment of tl)e governmental majority on the bill ministered with clockwork regularity, and has done its work so well that the government's supporters are now prophesying that tlie Liberals are far from being close to their last gasp, will continue in power for two years and certainly thay are not at present acting like men who had reached tho end of their time. On the contrary, tlio talk of laud reform heard so persistently in Wio early fall, is being, revived, ami it is now stated tliat Mr. Lloyd-Gcorge will begin his cajr.-puign in the matter soou. attftr.Ui.o first of the year.

The new company will put lu a homo- iS'tS" income ?.ief \t[t' XwSe It a new clause advocated by Mayor Hatch is added to the. city charter, which will be considered by the Legislature In February, it'wiHv hereafter be the fault of the' ratepayers of Lethbridge themselves it their .names are not on the'voters' list.. For, when the council meets this week to consider the charter for the first time, the mayor will submit a claiise wb^rvr, by all names will have to ue added to the lists by registration. "There-has always .been- mOlfe"or less trouble ov�r the lists," said Mayor Hatch, "and, of bbiirse,' the'onus always falls on the shoulders of the city officials. .By leaving the lists open lor one month during the fall, all ratepayers could some to the city hall, produce their credentials, and be placed on the lists. This: procedure is In voguo In Austnilla, and In parts of the States, and works well. I believe it is also used in Manitoba and Saskatchewan, in connection with pro. vinclal elections. It puts every ratepayer on the same tooting, and makes it his own fault it his name is not on the list." The council will hold Its last regular meeting tomorrow afternoon, but the charter will not likely be considered at that time, owing to the amount ot routine business to be disposed of. However, Mayor Hatch stated this morning that, as the ratepayers had said In no uncertain voice that they want straight commlsBlon govern-mEnt, the council is going to do its part to bring it about before stepping out to make way for the new legislators. A special meeting, therefore, will be arranged tomorrow, and to this special meeting will be invited the members of the new city council, the Business Men's asaoclation, and any other citizens who may be interested. The hardest question. Mayor Hatch thought, would be to decide the powers of the three commissioners, and Mr. Ball Is obtaining Information from other cities which will help to solve this probkm. The council 'tvill also discuss at the special meeting, tho matter of Insert ing a clnuBo In the new charter, re moving tho cost of revenue-paying utilltloB as a charge against the city's borrowing power, and also allowing the city to nasesR them as it they belonged to a private company. This courae waa advocated by C. F. P. Conybeare, K.C., during the recent election campaign, and, if followed out, would give the city an added borrowing power of.] $1,200,000, the value of the utilities. In this clasa, that is: tho street railway, waterworks and electric light plant, being apioxlmately $1,000,000. Other points which have been touched on by tho Business, Men's assooiSc tlon, and other organizfttione, will al-Bo be discussed at the special meeting, and it is hoped that the city charter will bo in good shape before the end of the year.

London, Dec. 16.-The delegates ol Bulgaria, Scrvia, Montenegro and Greece assembled at noon today In tlie picture gallery of St. James Pal-lace to meet the Turkish delegates in; the conference which is to settle the question wlictlier there is to bo pcac� 01 a continuation ot war In the Balkans. The pienipotcntiaties. were welcomed by Sir Edward Otey, British foreign minister. His ad*" dress was brief but full o( good things for tho succesa of tbe gaithatr ing. He said : "Gentlemen, His Majesty tliaKiBtc desires mc to convey to you his welcome and express his best wishea> for the success of your labor*. It'Is' my agreeable duty to welcome you', on behalf of His Majesty's Rovern-; ment, and I say with what pleaauia your presence is regarded In this country. His Majesty tiie King, being anxious to facilitate your task in'.every way, has placed these rooms in St. James Palace at your disposal. I trust you will And them suitable and at the same time I assure you that Ills Majesty's government will do all in its power to promote your convenience. "You will, I believe, find in this Country an atmosphere o( calm and impartiality which will be favorable to your work and withm these rooms which you occupy you will be really on neutral ground where there will be no policies except your own. "There are dimcultles In all negotiations for peace after a war. 1 will not attempt to estimate what they may be in your case. They have no doubt been tho subject of full in; structions to each set of delegates from their respective governments, but there can be no nobler task than to overcome those dilllcult'os and to accomplish peace as a.result of your own efforts and vour own work. In this way you will lay foundations on which, I trust, will 'be built '>y true wisdom and statesmans'up, tlie prosperity, moral, economic, national and future of your respecti^'o conntries. Without that statesmaush'p the gains of war are of littlo or no wortli to future generations. With that statesmanship the losses ot war can le repaitod and bifctecaess merged in, the realization ot the blessings of peace. "I will aay no more, except to wish you succosB In your task, and to as-BUTe you that .vou have the goodwill': of everyone iu the objoet tor whioti" you have assembled here, and thai' by ucponiplishlng peace you will 'sft care tlio respect of the whole Of Eli-* rope."
