Administration Forces Now Have Secured Strong Grip On Democratic Convention OTTAWA, June tion been tentatively fixed for afternoon. Preparations to this end have although Is considerable doubt If the house'xyjll be able to conclude, its business today, even with an all- n-lffht sitting. Discussion on the Batrd of Commerce resignations stld to'come; the increase In members' Indemnities has yet to be vcted and much pupply re- mains. Estimates of the labor de- partment have not 'been paificd.1 But there Is a general desire to terminate the session as early as possible and an effort wilt be made to conclude business today.

Throughout the naval de- bate of 1909 the'Liberal party had ridiculed .Iho Osrman menace and I their claim that this hsd been the rea- con for naval policy %vua absurd. Tho opposition to that policy I had been founded on tho same argn- I meat that there was no immediate menace.

TORONTO, June view of the present unsettled stale of the wool market Hie Canadian Co-operative Wool Growers, Limited, has isaueii the following statement: ''Everything at the present time points to a lower level of prices as compared with those obtained on the 1919 clip." Just where that new level will he, however, is a point jyion which there is much speculation and very little agreement. "For the immediate present no mar- ket exists and the general dullness is perhaps hest reflected in the lack .if interest on the part of the .'.lealing trade. It has virtually -withdrawn all from the field or limited their activities to the handling of the pro- duct on a consignment oasis. One of the chief reasons for this state of af- fairs lies in the fact lhat buyers of yarn and woollens have been forced to cancel orders previously made on account ot general trade conditions. "In addition to the trade cancella- tions tho following facts bear direct- ly on tho__wool market: Tho general tightness of money, stocks of wool in hand particularly In the lower grades, and finally, transportation and tho gen- eral unsettled stale of business. "The one bright spot In tho wholo situation la that all authorities aeom to ho of tho opinion that tho present 1o.ll la only temporary."
