The editorial eomment of Sunday papers regarding the supreme council's conclusions show a difference of opinion. The Daily Express doubts whether Germany will be able to foot tae bill but says; "If payment can be exacted it .will be in a form that will do credit- ors more harm than good." The newspaper cites examples of the dump- ing of surrendered ships and a re- duced demand British products. The Daily Telegraph, on the other hand, asserts that Germany Is suite able to meet the bill If she chooses to do so, but asserts that she prob- ably will not pay except under strong compulsion. This newspaper calcu- lates the British share of the total of the reparations as still less than one- third of the British war debt.

QUEBEC, Jan. proylncta cabinet has agreed on the main tea turea of the liquor control bill which will be submitted to the legislature this week, It Is understood. In regard to the sale of liquor at the retail gdv eminent shops to the consumer, there will not be a permit system, such as It. being suggested ;n British 'Columbia but there will be an list" in every shop. Those who are .condemned for drunkenness will be put on that list. Those whose motfl- e'rs, fathers or wives complain that their folks are drinking too much will get ou that list and the commission will devise such a system of checking up that it will bo difficult to beat such a list, especially in small places. Penalties provided are so severe that only the most foolhardy will un- dertake to defeat, some clauses of the law. Jail sentences wltTiotii option are provided for violation ot some clauses, even for the first offense, and provis- ion is made in the bill by cleverly drawn clauses to prevent technicali- ties defeating the purposes of the pen- alty clauses. During the laat year it bas been impossible to send hotelmen and others to jail In Montreal. It is understood that the bill will provide a measure of protection for breweries In this province by the imposition of a tax of on breweries outside oE the province which ship beer Into Quebec. This would affect chiefly brewers in Great Britain. iuce of Quebec, of course, cannot levy taxes on persons or companies outside its own boundaries.'but this difficulty ia overcome by making the tax apply on the wholesale agents In Quebec ot such outside breweries. The government recognizes the pro- tection of home industries in addition to the matter of revenue. Brewers in the province nay il substantial tax on all they brew, namely 8 1-2 per cent, and this is to be raised, consequently there is no good reason why outside brewers should not pay. U. F. M.

SPRACKLIN TORONTO, Jan. Drury will tomorrow take up thu debate in the legislature on the address in re- ply to the speech from the throne. A pronouncement from the premier on tho "broadening out" policy of tbe Ontario government is expected as an answer to sarcasm indulged in by Hon. O. H. Ferguson, Conservativa leader and H.
