Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 5, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta page six THE LKTHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD MANY SPEECHES I, THE CONSCRIPTION BILL Ottawa, July i.-When the house Adjourned tonight, tho debute on the second reading of tho military service net vns nearing its close. Ten speakers hnd been heard from during thn day, leaving a like number to sponk tomorrow. Th�* prospects are thr.t the voting "ill take place at a fairly late hour tomorrow evening. The longest speech of the day was delivered by K. M. McDonald, of Pictou. who in a two hour effort in support of tho referendum amendment, asserted that the government, in introducing the Mil. was playing nt politics. Ho claimed that tho present sif.i.itlon In the dominion was due entirely to tho government, and that If voluntary enlistment had been given a fair trial, free from political in-flutmces, conscription would not have been necessary. Mr. McDonald made a passing reference to Dr. Michael Clark, stating that the member for Red Deer had shown signs of hysteria both at the present and previous sessions. Support for the bill came from . C'.arenco Jamleson (Conservative), ' W. S. toggle (Liberal), and James Morris of Chateauguay (Conservative). The latter, who represents Chateauguay, a constituency which is largely French, frankly confessed to the house that ho was "between the : devil and the dsep sea." He had derided to vote for the bill, however, and would abide by tho consequences. Vr. S. Logie read a letter from one of his three stmt In the trenches, In whtcb he said: "Wn�t is the news regarding conscription? I am strong for conscription myself. What does father think oj if?" He argued that conscription Is necessary in order to bring support to the men in the trenches. .!. A. Descarries, Conservative member for Jacques Cartfer. announced that he would vote for the s'li months' hoist, for the referendum " and against the bill. J. ,7. Hughes, P. E. I.; A. A. Mon-f- don, D. A. LaFortune Moncalm, and i! Ls>vl Thompton, (Qu'Appelle), favored the referendum as did also L. J. Pap-ine*u of Beauharnols. Mr, Thompson will vote for the bill if the referendum is defeated but he declared that the gorernment should trust the people. E. M. MoDonald Otta-wa, July 4.-The' conscription bill debate was resumed by B. M. McDonald, of Pictou, who said that while it was desirable that Canada should do her part in the prosecution of the war, it was really desirable that we should have peace at home. It was the duty of the government, he said, long ago to have ascertained what was the best service Canada could render to the cause. Long ago there should have been mobilization all along the line of possible national effort. Organization for the war had been delayed and for this the prime minister was to blame. Instead of deliberate organization, Canada had been bumping along from hysteria to . hysteria. Mr. McDonald said that certain members had been affected by this hysteria, including the member from Ked Deer, (Dr. Michael Clark). Lait BOfisfon he had shown signs of hysteria -when ho disapproved of legitimate, criticism by the opposition. He had again shown signs of hysteria this y��r. Mr. McDonald thought the present attitude of Dr. Clark was strange In view of the fact that at the time of the South African war he was one of those in England opposed to England taking any part in bringing about (be freedom of South Africa. Mr. McDonald asserted that the country was aot affected by hysteria. This had been demonstrated by the result of the Saskatchewan elections, where the Conservatives' cry was "vote for iWilloughby and Borden." The existing situation, Mr. McDonald said, was created by the government and not by the people. In the face of the conditions the government has thrown into the arena the contentious question of conscription. It had been advertised in the United State* that conscription was not ieemod wise or desirable. During the petit two years the wastage had been going on at the front, but on April 30 the minister of militia stated that the government had never considered the question of conscription. The prime minister on his return bad stated that he had not discussed the question of conscription in England. One of hiB colleagues who came ver on the ship with him was the first to state that he thought conscription would have to come. WILL BE ELECTION IF EXTENSION IS wanted on a voluntary basis, or whether there will ho a general election Is yet too early to know villi certainty. Tho fact of the bill having been Introduced to tho house makes tho duty of every workor in the Dominion plain. "It we accept tho assurance of the prime minister that conscription will bo resorted to only when It should prove the only effective method to preserve the existence of the state and of tho institutions and liberties which we enjoy, wo nre driven to the conclusion that tho existence of thel state is In jeopardy.
