IN ABLE SPEECH Ottawa, .luly 24.-The third reading of the military service was spoken to by J. G. Turriff of Assluibola, who said he was absent during the greater part of the time tho reading wnx under consideration. He said that he was supporting the bill because it was In accordance with the policy of tho Liberal party since the beginning of the war, to devote the whole energies of the country to the winning of the conflict. Mr. Turriff said Unit a referendum would be defeated because one ontlre province and all tho slackers in the country are against the measure. There were times such as now when the country is at war when tho majority should not make tho laws of the country. Mr. Turriff said that after an election contest recruiting would be dead. They said that if tUey came Into power the men would be .secured, why not go a step further and say that if men canot he secured thou conscription would be enforced. Mr. Turriff said he did not like to differ with his fellow Liberals and In. would remain as strong a Liberal as 1 evor, but he believed that tho only thing *o do now Is to put forth every effort to win the war. Mr. Turriff favored a national government to eu force conscription, He had not much sympathy with the present government and did not believe that tho present administration or a Liberal administration could properly carry on the war. There should be a coalition after such a government had completed its worV he would be ready to take off his coat and fight the battles of the Liberals again. Mr. Turlff in closing said he was supporting the third reading of the bill on the understanding that wealth would be taxed and that an income tax would be introduced in this act. He proposed to be loyal to the men at the front that their sacrifices may not be made in vain. Mr. Fred Pardee referring to the report of the Liberal meeting on Friday in Toronto last, said that he stands today where he stood on the second reading of the bill. He did not agree with the report as to the conclusions arived at as roported in the Toronto Globe. Mr. Pardee said that he remained a conscrlptionist Liberal and had so stated his position at the Liberal gathering. Mr. Hugh Guthrie made a somewhat similar statement. He said that ho was more of a conscriptionist than ever before and � expressed the hope that it would receive a large majority in the house on the third reading than on the second reading. Sir Wilfrid Laurier, who followed, said he again wished to impress upon the house the dangers, which will attend' the enforcement of. this bill. He believed tliat it would lead to division, irritation, friction and disunion. The truth of this had' been demonstrated by what had occurred in the house. The attitude of the government, he said, showed a lack of foresight and forethought. To. precipitate .the bill as it had been precipitated had been unwise: He would no*^.chargo the government with similar Intentions but the results had\been sinister. The governor-general had stated the bill would be accepted without complaint, but he had not been convincing in his arguments. Mr. Meighen's spech, he said, Indicated a feeling of impotency. It demonstrated that the government had introduced the bill without calculating upon its bad effects.

E E PESS1MI Dublin, July 24.--Not very sanguine hopes for success for tho Irish convention about to assemble bore, are expressed by the many delegates who ulready have arrived. There was a plenteous expression of good will toward the undertaking, however. In the opinion of a leading ofllcial, It. will take less than a week to decide whether the effort to deal with the Irish question of the body is to prove abortive On the other hand, It is known that the government was influenced in choosing the place of meeting by the fact that it would be able to retain occupancy for more than three months of the place selected. Henry E. Duke, the chief secretary for Ireland, will open the convention tomorrow. There is a strong sentiment, chiefly among the nationalists, to keep him permanently in the chair. Sir Francis Hopwood Is doing the sec-tarlal work at present, but it is expected he will be replaced by an Irishman. l.lmn, Peru, .luly 21.-The Peruvian cabinet resigned today.
