T. C. Norri's, leafier o! the opposi- tion in Manitoba, is m Le Pas con stitaency. He has .issued a statement on tte situation in that riding. Mr Norris has a reputation for calmness and moderateness, remarks the Win- nipeg Tribune in an editonal dealing witt toe situation: Party extremists, indeed, criticize him for his reserve.
