After the humiliat- ing'exhibition in the House yesterday when government under heavy pressure conceded eyery point to the insurgents in their demand lor a full investigation of .'the Great Waterways deal, chief among which concessions j was that allowing the right of the insurgents to apply for counsel, sev- eral members of the government side are said to be wavering and the po- sition ct the government in these cir- cumstances hanging to office as they are, only by, a majority of three, is xceedingly precarious. It would be fatal to the government it is felt on all hands, to allow any question to come to a vote in the House at this time. Consequently- thc government-is making every ef- "ort to compromise, with the hope .of, smoothing things over. Tonight they are .meeting, in caucus to endeavor to meet the insurgents in their demands for an adjourament of the houlse until the Waterways en-, quiry is over. The government do not want this question to come to a vote in 'the Mouse for they would surely suffer defeat if they opposed the proposal openly in the Legisla- ture.
