And that the speaker of this house is authorized to sign tho petition re-quest;ng His Majesty'the King in council to repeal the aforesaid act, which petition is to be transmitted to His Excellency, the governor gcnornl, to bo by him forwarded to His Majesty in the usual manner." - Mr. Athanaz David, member for Terrebonne, in the'course of u long-' thy and well prepared speech oppos-, ed the motion. Referring to the period that will follow the war he hoped titat the relations between the' provinces would then be Improved. In order that this might be attained It was necessary for men'to come to the foro In the English provinces and set aside prejudices t)y addressing themselves to those who had not lost sight of ideals which had formerly animated them. He considered that the isolation of' Que^bec was impossible' for either a political or economic point of view. He believed that this was no time to give,up the tight for Can-.idian ideals. The constitution of this country, he sftid, had clauses embodying sufficient justice to offer correction for all wrongs suffered, and In spite of the dangers of tho present hour be expressed profound attachment to that constitution. Jlr. Hector La Ferte, member for Drummond, who seconded the Fran-coeur motion was the only other member who spoke, to it. He considered that the motion in the form it was drawn was timely. He said he supported the motion, because to oppose it was tantamount to saying the other provinces did not want Quebec, while Quebec, despite that, wanted to do collected. For the like period in 1916 | everything to please them. He thought imports' aggregated $625,635,897, on which dnties amounting to $106,378,729 were collected. UI STATE OF ICowmniiD' 7ii0m PeoMT Pasbi The traders worked In overcoats, caps and mittens. New York Bewildered. New York, Jan. 18.-New York today entered upon the five day period of industrial suspension somewhat bewildered because of lack of autT'o-it-ative Information concerning details of the operation of the coal conservation orders, but determined, nevertheless, to accept patriotically whatever hardships that may come. Local fuel administrators, deluged by thousands of inquiries from busi-ij ness men, firms and ' corporations, were unable to make definite Interpretations of countless angles of the problem, and much confusion resulted. Not the least of the problems confronting the fuel administrators was that of enforcing the orders. Albert H. Wiggin, state administrator, admitted he was not sure who would see that the orders were obeyed. He declared tbat the success of the plan rested largely on the "conscience" of the people was confident there would be very Uttlo trouble in carrying out orders. While merchants associations and industrial . organizations joined a mighty cborus of protests before the order actually was promulgated fit Wt^shlngton there was a noticeable absence of criticism when the decree became effective. Labor leaders, while deploring the order,- asserted" their loyalty to the government and made arrangements to raise funds for the relief of those thrown out of work. A million workers win lose $10,000,000 .' during tfie period in-New York City alone, according to some ot the estimates. "The needle trades, as a class will suffer the most from the shutdown, it was sa.'d, it being estimated that fully 500,-000 women and girls are employed in ^this work.

There had been a campaign ot falsehood, sophimisms, 'calumnies, and abuse directed against Quebec by such newspapers- as, the Toronto World, Winnipeg Telegram, the Toronto Telegiam, Toronto News, Ottawa Journal, the Manitoba Free Press -the last named go ng so far in its abuse of Quebec that its contemporary the Reglna Leader, disgusted, gave It advice which put an end lo Its devilish conduct Such publications went the rounds of the press of all America, even Europe. Mr. Prnncoeur especially emphasized articles printed In the Orahg'e Sentinel. Ap ^ariy as 1914, he claimed, under the signature of one Putting-ham, the Sentinel advised nothing short of civil war. ' , Th^ Kingston Standard alleged that "the French Canadians 'had recourse to the self-same treasonable methods of the Huns." The Toronto Telegram advised Canadian soldiers and their friends "not to vote shoulder to shoulder ^ith the neutral i-aclallsts of Quebec and the Austro-Germans of Alberta and Saskatchewan who hate Britain." The Toronto Mews said: ,"We believe It la true, that the French clergy opposed recruiting In Quebec.
