EDMONTON OFFICE-3 CRISTALL BLOCK ! Ottawa, and the only French-Canadian 'j on the government side of the'house I Laurlsr Speaks I Ottawa. March 19.-The debalo was | continued on the address without de-' lay when the house met this after-� noon, yir Wilfrid Laurier on rising was greeted with prolonged applause 1 by the members sitting on the left of ! the speaker. He plunged at once into : the subject of the contents of the I speech from the throne which he de-j scribed as a document of unusual I length, made up of subjects, old and ' new. Inn chiefly old. The matters .' referred to. he said, were familiar to : the people of the comiiry. In regard . to some of them, they were awaiting the decision of the government, and he would refrain from comment in re gard to them until the government has introduced its proposals in concrete form. No Difftrence in Govt. Sir Wilfrid noted that the speech did not contain .tily mention of a siib-. jec which did not require any legis-' lation. Since the former parliament ' adjourned quite a change had taken place in the government. "1 did not." ; he said, "say change of government, but change in the government. 1 see , no difference in the old and new gov-; eminent. There is no new govern-1 men;; it is the same old government which has existed for the last six j years. As long as there is no change ' in the premiership there is no change , in the government.. It is the same; control and the same principle that j prevails." Pleasing to The Eye Sir Wilfrid went on to say that while 4 - ---! '.hi re had been no change in the gov- i ' eminent there had been a change in , its complexion. There had been not [ only an alteration, but an improve-; menT in the administration. There ; hsd been infu-eil into the government,, a rosy red color which is pleasing to ' the eye. The former, he said, had decided that' until a copious draft  coid storage and 1 �taken out again after the restot at ion ! of peace." If the principles of the | i British system of government were ; true and sound and efficient in peace I i they were enuaiiy sound aud efficient I ; in war. And If there was a feature! I of the British system which was es-' sential, it is organization. Kt-vnai ! vigilance is the price of libertj. l.'n-1 less there was eternal vigilance by a strong and resolute opposition, there was the universal testimony of history to show tltat encroachments would take place on freedom and injustice would he brought about. An Outrageous Bill Sir Wilfrid proceeded: "There is evidence of it today. The parliament of Canada meets today by a violation of what is left of the electoral law of the Dominion. Last session those who sat in the house were divided up on the question of conscription but there was no divergence of opinion in the opposition on the outrageous bill which was brought in as the War Time Election Act. We were opposed unanimously to every feature of it. Every j feature of that law was an outrage j and an odious violation of the very j foundation of our system of demo-1 cratic government." | Where Was Authority? I Sir Wilfrid had been told that an | order in council was passed authoriz-j ing the general returning officer to J STILL HOPE THAT MR. FREEMAN APOLOGIZES Halifax. March 10 -Hope that some i members of the cre�- of the Batiscan saved themselves wlion the collier � was dashed to pieces on the ledges off ' the Xova Scotia coast was revived to-I day when the following message was ' received from the Yarmouth agent of the steamer: "More wreckage, hatches anil life ; bolts coming ashore in the Tusket Islands from the Hatlscan. There is a remote chance of survivors being on Seal Mud Islands. Hesem: steamers will be on the scene today and will return tomorrow." William Spears, pilot of Halifax, who bus arrived here by steamer from St. John says that early last Saturday morning when passing Peters Island he sighted a ship well in among the dangerous ledges. This, he believes, was the Batiscan, and he fears thai she struck on the Gannet Ledges. "In the terrific gale that was then blowing." he said today, "the ship would not have had the flight es chance to escape. 1 doubt if the crew would have had time to launch more than one boat." ' The steamer hldna R. has returned from a thorough search of. the waters about the Tusket Ledges and reports having found no trace of the collier Hatiscan. lost in last week's'gale. The search is being renewed this afternoon. The go', eminent steamer sent to the scene has not reported yet. In tiie meantime, wreckage from the ill-fated steamer continues to come ashore. 'This morning, another body was found on the shore at Turpentine Island. It was clothed in a black sweater, blue overalls and wore tan shoes. No others have been reported.

If so. he wn:-i at a loss to know under what author-i ify such an order in council was pass-  fd unless the government had once I more resorted to the War Measures ' Act of 1911. "The War Measures Act already covers a multitude of sins." Sir Wilfrid added, amid the applause of his followers, "but there is a limit to the War Measures Act. So I put it seriously: Is it within tiie power of t�* government, to -pass an order in council to override the positive pros'isions of a statute passed last session. If it t be so, it is only further proof of what II said a moment ago. that we are sit-  ting today by direct violation of the i law of the land." ' Borden Speaks ! Sir Robert Borden who rose at t:2o j raid that Sir Wilfrid Laurier evidently was disposed to be critical but his '� remarks were not altogether logical, lie had said that there was an infus- ' ion of red in the government. That was '� the intention .when the government | was formed. i Insofar as this intention had not : been carried out up lo the present j time it would hi- attended to in the ) future. Sir Robert warmly compli-| mented both the mover and seconder ! of the address on iheir efforts. m A HERALD WANT AD. l Tells How To Loosen a Tender Corn So It Lifts Out Without Pain. You reckless men and women who are. pestered with corns and who have at least onne a week invited an awful death from lockjaw or blood poison are now.told by a f'incinnati authority to use a drug called frei-zone. which the moment a L-w drops are applied to any corn, the soreness is relieved and soon the entire corn, root and all. lifts out with the fingers. It is a sticky substance 'Which dries the moment, it is applied and is said to simply shrivel tho corn without inflaming or even irritating the surrounding tisFim or skin. It is claimed that a quarter of an ounce will cost very little at any of the drug stores, but is sufficient to rid one's feet of every hard or soft corn or callus. you are further warned that cutting at a corn is a suicidal habit.- Advertisement.
