PRESIDENT WILSON ^DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE President Wilson is the strong man of the Democratic party. That he will be the man nanied by the Democratic convention is generally accepted. President Wilson has been the Democratic government of Uie United States during the past IS months. He , has dominated the cabinet; he has been the strong man. It is true we hear many objections to President Wilson's foreign policy, but when one considers Uiat he believes the mass of his 100,000,000 people wish to keep the United States out of this war, it Js quite possible to understand his difficult position. His new preparedness policy has created a deep impression, and though the appeal is made to keep this matter out of politics, it is nevertheless true that it has brought Mr. Wilson into the limelight as nothing else has done. . There are stirring times ahead in United Stales politics of the next year. WEDNisSDAY,. .FEBRU W 6 LATEST GROUP PHOTO OF MR. J.

When the house met at 3 o'clock Hon. A. Turgeon, attorney-general, rose and moved that the following words, "that a number of the Liberal members of this assembly were bribed la December, 1913, to oppose a government bill to abolish the bar, introduced to the assembly In 1913" do "constitute a grave breach of the privileges of this house." Mr. Wllloughby, the leader of the opposition, and Mr. Bradshaw both spoke on this resolution and on it being presented to the house by Mr. Speaker it was accepted. Mr. Turgoon then moved that "John Bmest Bradshaw, a member of this assembly, be ordered to be in his seat in this house at S o'clock this evening." , Considerable discussion, all of it of an fntenoely dramatic and interesting character, followed the introduction of this motion, which was carried, the speaker thereupon ordered Mr. Bradshaw to be In bis seat at eight o'clock. The Questions Asked 'WTien 8 o'clock came and the house re-assembled, the speaker informed the legislature that Sir. Bradshaw was 4n hin seat. Hon. A.

Answer: I have no answer to make to that question, ' Bradshaw Rebuked Mr. Turgeon then read a motion to the effect that whereas Mr. Bradshaw had rendered himself guilty of a contempt of the hoiise and a breach of his privilege by his refusal to answer the questions p.ut to him, that, he be reprimanded by the speaker and that further action be deferred for future consideration.
