Just what the next move will 'he is uncertain though the receipt of the report at Ottawa may result in some recommendation' from the department which may put a now face upon the matter and form, a basia for another attempt at conciliation iby the two parties acting Independent of official aid In that direction. In short the position s what it was at the beginning. Some light has lieon shed upon the positions ot the two sides but these positions are practically unchanged.
