Weidenhammer, the tive member for Stony Plain followed and criticised the administration . of the government, especially the department of agriculture. He was still speaking when the house adjourned. Mr. Boudreau said they heard the government criticized for guaranteeing- the bonds of the McArthur railways l)ut the leader of the opposition seemed to forget that that had been done with the approval of the legislature ana he could tell him if the members on the government side of the house had had the least suspicion,'had not bad full confidence in the premier they would not have endorsed his policy. They would have done their duty and he hoped in the near future, the people of the country would have an opportunity of rendering their verdict and of saying whether they wanted the premier again in power or not an impression that was Applauded by the Liberal members. Mr. Boudreau congratulated the 'iiremier on his policy of rural credits and agreed with the member for I>lii the premierjduifig the period of^ekteiis ion if it took place?

Favors Conscription The people had been told in Dorchester by the Conservative party that they would nbt have conscription. "I as a FrenchXIanadian," continued the member for St.. Albert, "say we_ ought to have conscription, I believe in it and support it and although my constituency is composed of French and Germans 1 would support direct taxation for the patriotic fund." iMr. Boudreau, continuing, said that the proposals dt tlie opposition for an extension of the term of the legislature was a compliment to the premier of the province, and the premier, as clever as ever said, he supposed, "tell me the length of the extension and then I will be in a position to jiidge the length of the confidence you are prepared to give me." Premier SUton: "WiU the honorable gentleman excuse me interrupting? There has: been no conversation between the leader of the opposition and myself, except what has taken place in the house here." "After this I will quit reading the loumttl," was the comment of the member for St. Albert. Mr. Michener: "It does not say anything about,an extension.' Mr. Boudreau:^ "They speak.about a proposal." C. Weidenhammer, Stony Plain, who followed dealing with the public debt contended that they had not the public utilities i^j the province to represent the expenditure. He declared that the opposition had always objected -to the A. and G. W. railway because of the amount of the cost and stated that there had been equal extravagance in connection with �he telephone system. Criticisiijig the expenses of the ministers and particularly Hhose of the minister of agriculture, he declared that the results attained did not justify the expenditure of travel in foreign countries. In this connection he referred to the expenditure oh : the demonstration farms. Hon. C.

U. - The school board held their regular meeting on Tuesday night.  The teachers' reports for the month of January sJiowed a great falling off in attendance which was attributed to the large aniount of sickness andrj the cold weather prevailing last month. A communication from the Alberta Federation of Labor received a con-sldemble amount of thought ,iind was productive of considerable discussion. The letter was one asking the school board to enclose a motion asking the department of education to .provide all the school supplies for scholars. The motion was unanimously endorsed. The estimates for the year were read and passed. The town will be asked to furnish $6,000.00. A surplus from last year will provide another $425.00, Imaklng tjje estimate total $6,-125.00. The resignation of Miss Henderson as teacher was read and accepted with profound regret. ' Mrs. J. Stevenson, wife of Principal Stevenson, was chosen out of 1,0 applicants to fill the 'vacant position at a salary of $725.00. Council Meeting The meeting of the town council under direction of Deputy Mayor Steele was another lengthy session, the most time being taken up with Jutting a batch of bylaws through. It is expected that now the business assessment, dog bylaw and license bylaw have been disposed of the meetings will break up at more seasonable hours. J. J. CamerOh was appointed to fill the vacancy caused by the resigna-tiohr-of .T. W. Harwood from the health board. ' The council and ''firemen have patched up their differences and delegation was on hand to recommend that H. Bossenberry be appoint ed chief in place of Jas. Foote, whose resignation had just been, read by the secretary. A resolution making the appointment as requested was passed. H. Bossenberry stated, that the firemen' wouift put two men in the room-in the municipal building if the council would supply the furniture necessary, as the present furniture is practically out of business. The matter was referred to the Fire, Water and Light Committee. Mr. Cameron then brought up the matter, of the purchase of ,a car for the transportation ot the hose in case of calls. The offer ota car from Jack Kelly ior $300.00 was accepted and the firemen stated that they had voted $150 towards the purchase of the car. The council then instructed the Fire, �Water ,and Light committee to have the, car transformed to a fire motor and vote3 450 for the expenditure. The matter of the assignment ot the arrears of taxes to the bank w^s taken ,up at the request of the manager. In consideration of the fact that advances to about $9,500.00 were not paid off in full during, the year of 1916 owing to inability to collect sufficient taxes, it was thereby.agreed that the arrears of taxes are assigned to the Union Bank of Canada and collections will be applied to-reduce advances made .hy the bank from time to time. , The auditors' report for 1916 was presented, and a motion carried to the affect that Henderson, Reid ^nd Pat-erson/ije' appointed auditors for 191,7.

At his;request it was reterrfed to the committee. The blil is entitled "an act to discourage the violation of international law upon the high seas." � . ,~ "this measure," said Senator Sauls-bury, "may enable the government without declaration of war to assist In preventing violation of international rights at sea, by giving assistance to those enga^d in abatiug unrecognized and unwarranted systems of warfare. It is a step that may be effective In the present international crisis with-' out a" declaration ot war on our part." Other senators, pointed out tliat the bill would peiwit the United States to give aid to the entente allies as long as the. German submarine campaign is maintained, without any further action by congress, giving the president authority to use airmed forces of the hatlon to protect-American seamen and^ property on the seas. There was no discussion of the bill in the senate, although many senato^ after its introduction pointed out'thist in the present, situation the measure would open the ports ot the United States to British,. French or other allied warships": convoying merchant vessel? and also would enable belligerents to patrol, the. waters ^ of tirt United States, freieiy in a ca'mpaigii against German'I'aiders. Senator Saulsbury would not atiy whether the bill had been discusse^d with the adminiS'tVation," but-'it was understood, that it might-prove ad; ceptable as a measure short of way designed to curb ruthless submarine warfare.
