I believe that many dltfi�Jultie� which now threaten the adoption of such a policy, would disappear before prompt and bold action.

(From the Bow Island Review) The big crops that have been obtained in this district, and the great prosperity occasioned thereby, have been noted before in, these columns. Nowhere oan this prosperity be moro or better observed than in the splendid country homes that have now replaced the former habitations of the settlers. Big barns, granaries, and commodious farmhouses now dot the country thickly, and what is just as pleasant perhaps are the fine fields of grain that are now giving every promise of coming to maturity. Directly opposite the depot, Mr. Emerson Brown has all but completed a large hotel. It has twenty-four rooms and each room will be furnished with hot and cold water. Mr. Brown intends to furnish throughout in the .most modern style. Burdett's celebration of the 4th of July this year will be characterized by a very ambitious program. The committee has spent considerable time in its preparation and the great throng which is expected to visit the town on that date will find something to Interest and amuse them throughout the day. Plans and specifications for the new Consolidated School are now in the hands of the secretary, A. Wad-dell.

Winnipeg, June 20.-An Ottawa dlpatch to the Free Press today says: "At least a dozen Liberal members will vote against the Laurler amendment and for the conscription bill. Several others will vote for the amendment but will stand by the bill If the amend, ment is defeated. Under the circumstances the military service act, '17 is practically sure of carrying. After that It is believed that the extension of the life of parlla- i ment will be granted. Recruiting Still Ottawa. June 20.-Before resumption of the debate on the conscription bill in the commons this afternoon by Hon. T. W. Crothers, minister of labor, a number of questions relative to military matters wen; asked and answered. Hon. Charles Marcil was told by the prime minister that enlistment has not been discontinued in Quebec or elsewhere. Sir Edward minister of militia, replying to the question said that arrangements hail been made in the United States for the enlistment of British subjects. Any Britishers desiring to join the Canadian forces instead of proceeding to England would be allowed to do so. Sir Edward also stated that no applications had been received from the United States for use of Canadian camps for training purposes. Hon. Frank Oliver inquired as to the truth of the statement that negot-! lations to settle the western coal strike had failed. Mr. Crothers replied that the member for Edmonton had been correctly informed. Negotiations had not proved successful. He added, "We are taking steps to bring about the immediate operation of the mines under government supervision." Continuing the conscription debate Mr. Crothers declared that the time ; had come for the introduction of the policy of conscription. There was no other course to pursue, he said, if | Canada is to fulfill her pledges to the Empire. Mr. Crothers said that every j member of the hous'e on behalf of : their constituents had promised that | Canada would remain in the war until ; it was won. Now it is proposed to ; abandon the men who had gone to the 'front to fight for our freedom. Mem-| ber& such as Hugh Guthrie and Mr. 1 Stevens of Vancouver had redeemed | ; the pledge given, but the member for Bonaventure (Hon. Chas. Marcil) and Rouville (Hon. Rudolph Lemieux) and their constituents had not dono so, if wo do not redeem our pledge wo will proclaim ourselves to the world as quitters. Mr. Crothers said that Sir Wilfrid Laurier had sent troops to South Africa and entered into the O. T. P. agreement without consulting the people. The referendum proponal was an inBult to the people of Canada. It was a proposal to go back on the boys at tho front. -JVtr. Marcil rose to say that Australia had rejected conscription. Would the minister say that Australia had abandoned her boys at tho front? Mr. Crothers expressed tho conviction that the laboring classes are not opposed I to conscription. Over 150,000 laboring men had volunteered and this was proof that they were heartily in support of Canada doing her utmost to win tho war. The best elements in the labor party today are in favor of conscription. <- Please Your PALATE Satisfy your thirst and give your palato a treat with one of our delicious sodas.
