The Associated Press was informed today that the premier, Mar quis Saiottji, decided to tender his igaation some ago and that at his request the members of his cabin- et'agreed to resign also. The resig- nation wiy be tendered to the emper- or in the morning. The nominal reu son for Marquis Saioaji's resignation is ill health. The cabinet all strict of the Beiyuka, or constitutionalist party, and it was therefore heceaaary that they resign with him. The actual reason for the resignation of the premier is under- stood to be the position taken by Marquis Inoyie. secretary of home department, regarding the future fin- ancial policy of Marquis Saionji. This calls for retrenchment in the ar- my and loavy, the postponement of public ,works, a demand for. a sinking fund. and the yea'rly repaymen t of loans. Marquis Inoyie recently at- 'her preeeht government.policy regarding finances. This gave offence to Marquis Saionji, who. decided to resign alone. .He consulted with the other ministers and was by them per suaded to accept the resignations of all the members of the cabinet. An unknown quantity in the constitution is the position the emperor may take in 'the matter. He possibly may de- cline the acceptance of the resigaa- tion but this is considered extremely unlikely.

London, July Daylight Bill measure by which the United Kingdom is to be lured into starting the day's work one hour ahead of the time indicated by the sun, has re- ceived the unqualified blessing of the select committee of the House of Commons and all indications point to its Joecoming elective next April. The bill proposes advance the clock one hour in April in order to pro- mote the greater use of daylight and to give the masses one hour, more playtime by light of day. The grea- test objection to the measure came from the stock- exchange which pre- sent the argument that its busineae with America would be dislocated. For this work only two. hoiira are available under the present condition and under the proposed bill, this time would be cut in half. The committee of the, house think this difficulty cap. be obviated by the adherence by those concerned to their present hours. For scientific purposes and tio'n, Greenwich time is to be main-- tained. R. N. W: M. P.

A. i. Ayleaworth in the course cog- aitant and exhaustive review of the C-optentious clauses of the bill which nas held the centra "of the stage in the Commons this session. The amendments he proposed to the cru- cial first clauses of the bill, in brief, retain the provisions for the alloca- tion by, the country judges of the list-s in Manitoba'to the respective federal constituencies and also practically the uiginal proposal with respect to a second revision of lists by judges in the unorganized districts of Ne.w On- tario. The clause submitted in sub- stitution for the clause in regard to Manitoba, provides that a committee of county court judges daring n certain month in each year allocate the names of the provincial lists and the polling sub-divisions in every riding for the following Domin- ion elections thus meeting the .pres- ent defect in respect to the overlap- ping of provincial and federal elec toral divisions. This latter provision the minister of justice frankly ad niitted was a substantial departure from the proposal originally cmbod in the bill inasmuch as it pro- vides for the work of preparing the lists being done by enumerators ap- pointed by the government.

It was tn Aylesworth uggeited, which would be followed by various provincial governments which 'controlled the .preparation' of heir own'liata. With regard to New Ontario, Mr. Aylesworth vigorously condemned the state' of affairs which called for'a remedy and he proposed that in the unorganized territory there be a committee of three district judges for each riding who would prepare the lists, not doing the actual work but appointing the en- umerators if they croose and who would hear all appeals, revise the ists and allocate the voters to- per polling divisions. British 'Col- umbia and Quebec would be dealt with on .the bill as amended because the situation in those province did not demand-it. The minister of jus- tice 'concluded his speech which oc- cupied over three hours with a strong defence of r Clause 17, which isin ef- fect that the marking of a ballot by a deputy reUming-ofncer or ling official will not invalidate' a count. He completely turned the criticism of the" Opposition .to ,ridi- cale by pointing out that every pro- vision which they had demanded so vehemently was actually contain- ed in the bill of Mr. Alcorn, Conser- vative member for'Prince Edward and. in the election act passed in April by the Ontario legislature. As a rrsult of the concessions made by the government, Mr. Roche of Mar- qoeUe withdrew his amendment to dause one and the House went into committee on bills, the non-conten- tious clauses being first considered. When the House met today, Mr. Alcorn in preparing for the discus- sion on the election bill withdrew his election hill This enabled him to present measure in the lorm of an amendment to the Aylesworth bill.

Towne 01 New York, candidate for the nomination for the vice presi- dency on the Democratic ticket arriv- ed today and at once placed him- self in touch with the leaders of the party, now here. "I may say that I am in ffcld to said Mr. Towne, "that T have every reason to feel that I will be nominated. I have been assured of the support of a large number of the New York delegation and I believe that at the jumper time will all be for me.
