Premier Lloyd George told Dr. Simont: "If the written pro- posals are of the same general character as the explanation of '.liem, it is not worth while for us to read them.

Besides the presentation of Premier Meighen's telegrams in 'the natural resources dispute to the legislature Monday af- ternoon, considerable other business was transacted. Attorney General J. H. Boyle gave a detailed explanation on the new jury act. He said the Vrovislpns for drawing jurors were aimed to eliminate "plugging" of jur- ies, and that provision was made for women to serve In- civil cases only because of the federal provision re- quiring locking' of juries on criminal casm up toietlier while, considering cases.
