Third Liberal candidate nominated EDMONTON (CP) - The Alberta Liberal party has nominated a third candidate for the next provincial election. E. R. (Danny) Daniels, a 42-year-old University of Alberta graduate student in educa-tional administration, was nominated for the Edmonton Jasper Place constituency. The Liberals, who presently hold no seats in the 65-member legislature, plan a leadership convention next month. Labor leader Michel Char-trand began the series of out-bursts when he complained about the delayed start of his trial on a charge of membership in the outlawed Front de Liberation du Quebec. Chartrand, free on bail for two weeks, said he and four others were originally supposed to go on trial in January after their arrests and detention Oct. 19.'

Both have been refused bail and made quiet appearances Monday. But Jacques Rose, one of four persons accused of the kidnap-murder of Pierre Laporte, former Quebec labor minister, was hustled out of court when he shouted the FLQ slogan and called the Crown lawyers "imbeciles." His trial date is April 13. The trial of his co-accused brother Paul is in its second month and April 13 trial dates were set for two other men facing the same kidnap-murder charges-Bernard Lortie and Francis Simard. More than 2S0 persons awaited trial dates on terrorist and criminal counts, besides the four facing the major murder charges. All four are also accused of membership in the FLQ, advocating or promoting the illegal acts of the FLQ and advocating the use of force or the commission of crime to change government in Canada. The Rose brothers' sister Liae, accused of FLQ membership, complained of conditions in the Tanguay women's prison, but Mr. Justice Roger Ouimet told her the matter is outside his jurisdiction. "Long live free Quebec," she shouted after being given a May 3 trial date. "Long live the political prisoners."

Many of them also face trial at other dates on other charges arising from Quebec terrorism. Jean Boisjoly, facing four charges that include FLQ membership, was given an April 5 trial date while brothers Gilles and Raymond Cormier, also accused of FLQ membership, will stand trial March 22. Nine persons charged as accessories after the fact in the Laporte kidnap-slaying were given an April 13 trial date. They are: Francine Belisle. ha* brother Francois, Richard Therrien, Louise Verreault, He-lene Quesnel and bar mother Denise, Yves Roy, Robert Du-puis, Calude Lariviere and Michel Viger.
