Lack of ammunition for the big guns is what seems to have been the trouble. This aspect of tne situation gives rise to the hope that very shortly the Russianls will have their new supplies of munitions In the field, and will be able to ef- fect a turn of the tide.

Asked why, knowing Kelly bad been overpaid, he did not so inform the commission, Roblin said at first it was his intention to do so. But later it seemed to him the commis- sion was trying to besmirch the 'diar- jacter-of the-'iate government, rather than uncover details of overpayments, so he decided to nave nothing to do with it.' Asked how he could defend the ac- tion of the Conservative majority in the Public Accounts committee, in ruling out evidence which would have shown Kelly did not put yards of concrete in the caissons, Roblin said the committee had.followed well established precedents. He believed the committee did right in refusing to compel the production" of Kelly's vouchers for material. Special Fares to mm EXHIBITION Good going June July 6. Return limit- July 9.
