Ottawa, June 15.-.Probably the live liest sitting of the house so far thin session occurred this afternoon and evening when the estimates of Hon. Albert Sevigny, minister of Inland revenue, were under consideration. Tho trouble was due to the recommendation made by Mr. Sevigny in favor of the appointment of Mr. Raoul Renaul, editor of .Le France Pnrleur, of Quebec, to a post in the inland revonue department. Liberal members interpreted the minister's explanation of the proposed appointment as meaning that he had thought it best to stop the criticism of the paper in regard to recrui1-ing by giving him a post In the department. They declared that the action of the government had placed the government in a peculiar position and that Mr. Sevigny had laid down a dangerous principle. Mr. Sevigny on the other hand maintained that Mr. Renaul was favorable to participation by Canada in tho war and that he hud simply criticized the methods of the military department aB well as Sir Wm. Price, who was raising a regiment in Quebec. Hon. Chas. Marcil was inclined to support this view and quoted extracts from the newspaper in question to establish it. The debate became very bitter and Mr. Sevigny declared that Le Devoir had become friendly to Sir Wilfrid since Sunday last. He understood that this was because of a conference that had taken place between Sir Wilfrid Laurier and Henry Bourassa. Called Him a Liar E. M. Macdonald vigorously denied this and said that Mr. Sevigny was "n liar." The remark was not heard by Chairman Rainville or the members generally and there were no demands for a retraction. After the dinner recess Mr. Macdonald stated that he had been authorized by Sir Wilfrid Laurier to deify that he had been in conference with Mr. Bourassa, and Mr. Sevigny said ho was willing to accept tho statement. The opposition asked for explanations as to a number of increases in the votes and the minister was not able to explain them to their satisfaction. A. K. McLean Raid ft was evident that the estimates of the department were not properly prepared. It looked, he r-atd. as though the department was not properly administered. E. M. Macdonald said It lobkod as though Mr. Sevlgny's predecessor In oflice, Mr. Fatenaude, had over-spent tho views of the department. The minister agreed that It would bo better to have' a detailed statement made as to hit the increases in the votes before consideration of the items was further proceeded with. It might be he said that spine mistakes were made lant year,and It was not doslrablo' that those ' mistakes should bo repeated. Ho remarked that he had only, been llvo months in tho department. "I think you should have been bettor postod," remarked A. K. Maclean. "[ admit that," said the minister, "but I am willing to got all tho Information asked for." , Mr, Maclean then suggested that tho house rise and the suggestion was accepted by Sir George Foster, who was leading the government. Copenhagen, via London, June 16.- Representatives of the German press were told yesterday at the regular weekly press conference in Berlin that the arrival of American troops in noteworthy numbers in the European theatre was to be expected only In 1918.

The suggestion was followed In numerous articles In the newspapers yesterday and this morning. The newspaper representatives wore also told that a now Russian offensive was highly Improbable but that, various minor operations indicated d new French otlensive was in preparation. The British also were certain to try their fortune again but no surprises in offensive movements were expected from ell her the French or the British and the only variance from the earlier offensive would beV charge of geographical locution. Germany's situation was described as absolutely secure und a Germun victory as certain owing to the relentless working of the submarines. Heavy estimates of French and British losses were supplied to furnish encouragement to readers.
