He was wildly critical of Boyle and Gariepy, and Btrongly condemnatory of the attorney-general, and by inference the premier. Mr. Mlchener rambled considerably toward the close the last half hour, it being a. palpable effort to shut out a i"aply. Mr. Slfton win reply tomorrow and several others are slated for speeches. The bill to authorize a two million )oan WBB advanced to the second reading.  Credit Due Ml*. Mlchener said credit, was due t) Wr.

After some persiflage as to outs of the minister which appeared In the press, Sir, .Mlcheuer dealt with (he public debt, the interest charges according to his view being greatm-thau the treasurer stated. .\lr. Mitchell, rising, gave the speaker an oral lesson in boolt-keepinB, Bhowing him how to arrive at the �xact figures, but Mr. Miehener seemed bent in making the government -pay the interest on the loan to the Catntral Canada Hailwaf. aad proceeding, said tUn flsures doaorlblng the public debt wero "nieauingleBS," owing to their enormity. Ho took the rote as polled at the last election to show that the per capita is ?300, and with the indirect liabilities this increases to $900. Asked what he would do with the unpolled vote, Mr. Miehener replied tliat he was going to build his argument on the polled vote. If the debt increases tho next Ik years at tlie same ratio, it would be flfty inllUons. While the iB quite evident that the government did not Intend to renmin In power very long. .Mr. Sitton: "The shortest loan is ton years." tUaughtar.) The opposition leader o(�)dejiined the government borrowing it*" own sinking fund. It should be loaned elsewhere. After a criticism of the amount 'spent on public works, Mr. Mlchener complained that the departmental reports are too late in being brought down. If they wore sent out earlier It would permit of a raoro intelligent criticism of the budget. lie criticized the various taxes im-�posed and said the wild land tax is a liardship, altliougli it liad proved of some benefit In bringing some lands .under production. The man who should bo tttxod is tho man who has production and can pay, that is the _ .British principle, lie bIho objected to the timber area lux us loo high. It is hard on tho timber operators.

Should four stay at home'.' Mr, .Mlchener replied that the pro-portlonnto increase was too high and left tho aulijecl to disctiss the adinlii. latratlon of justice. Ho siiid there were sorloiis cliurges of maludnilnls-tratign before tho house and made some remarks reflecting on tho attor-iiey-generul, and said the rofusiil of a royal commission was one admission that the government dured not open to the light of dfiy t)ie work of tho license branch, ,, (OONTINUEU ON PAGE 3) Will Have Influence in Forming New Policy of Dominion Govt, for Prohibition Southern Alberta Wool Growers to Meet Here Tomorrow in the Hoard of Trade rooms, the South Allierta Wool Growers' assoclution will meet for its annual coiiv(Mition. and many problems of importance to thn sheep rancher will be discussed. The Southern Alberta association is by far the largest In the west, representing as It does the owners of well over lOO.uDO sheep. One of the Mi'cstions to be discussed will be the manner of handling the liiu; wool clip. On the occasion of the recent visit of Mr. Geo.

It is not likelj-, however, that H. H. Stevens' resolution calling for Dominion-wide prohibition during the period of the war will be adopted as it stands. The alternative proposal, that an amendment should be adopted prohibiting the importation or liquor Into the provinces which have abolished the traffic, met with con- i siderable opposition In the government caucus today. Those who favor government action say that the Manitoba vote win hare the effect of Rtrengthtinlng the position of those who favored action along these lines by the Dominion' parliament. , The proposal to deal with the importation of liquor into the dry provinces, it is believed, will secure a majority vote of the house, although there will be numbers of members on both sides who will refuse to vote for it. There Is practically no expectation that the Dominion parliament will, by adopting .Mr. Stevens' resolution, impose prohibition upon the provinces which have not by referendum or otherwise aboilsliod the liquor trade. There will be another caucus next week when the ministerial forces will definitely decide on the scope of the amendment to Mr. SteveivR' resolution to be mov-ed when the debate Is re.sun)od in ilie! housa.
